My eyebrows before and after Benefit’s Brow Bar at Ulta

Hi everyone! I had an appointment at the Benefit Brow Bar at my local Ulta store this past weekend and since it was my first time there, I thought it would be cool to document my before and after! I didn’t want my eyebrows waxed, because of the bad experience I had a couple of months ago (more about that here), so I had them tweezed instead. Check out the before & after below. Let me know what you think. 🙂 Before I naturally have very full eyebrows and If I don’t tweeze my eyebrows for just two weeks, this...

Happy new hair! Thank you, Plaza Hair Salon and Aall In Limo & Party Bus, San Diego

If you follow me on social media, I apologize for flooding your timeline yesterday.

Yep, that is actually what happened yesterday! 😀 Together with a group of other bloggers in San Diego, I was invited by Aall In Limo & Party Bus and Plaza Hair Salon in Rancho Bernardo to try out their services yesterday.

What I do before, while and after straightening my hair with a flat iron

As you know I have curly hair, but I like to wear it straight. Don’t get me wrong: I LOVE my curls, but wearing it straight is much easier to maintain for me. I’ve never chemically straightened my hair, but I do straighten it with a flat iron every other week. Here’s what I do before and while straightening my hair with a flat iron. Tips, tricks and what to avoid. Hope this is helpful. 🙂 • Before I start, I try not to crank up the heat all the way. I read somewhere that 410 works for every hair...

My new hair products: CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner

With my freshly cut hair comes a new hair routine! Ever since I cut my hair, I’ve been focusing on taking care of my scalp and hair with good products to make sure my hair stays healthy and full. Did you know that studies have shown that seasonality (so the changing of the seasons) can cause shedding, especially in Fall? Yup! Now that we’re almost transition to Fall, I think it’s good to put an emphasis on scalp care, so my scalp and hair are ready! The skin on your scalp is the same skin that we have on our...

Review: Zakia’s Morocco 100% pure, organic Argan Oil

Thanks everybody for your kind words about my new hairdo! I really appreciate it. 🙂 For those who haven’t seen any new pictures yet: I cut my hair a couple of days before my birthday on August 9. I wasn’t sure about the whole thing and when I did decide to do it, I was nervous about it. The reason for this is because I hadn’t cut my hair since high school. Yes, I know…crazy! Of course I’ve had trims every year, but this was my first real haircut since I was about 12. My hair was very long, it...

Beauty is pain? Painful beauty procedures I regret doing

Beauty is pain, they say. What type of torture have you gone through for the sake of looking pretty? Back in the day, people would wear painful corsets and powder their face with lead. They used makeup made of malachite (a green ore of copper), galena (lead sulfide) and kohl, a paste made of soot, fatty matter and metal (usually lead, antimony, manganese or copper). The lead exposure would eventually lead to irritability, insomnia and mental decrease. Oops! The examples above might seem extreme, but nowadays things aren’t that different. A lot of these things have been replaced by beauty...

I’m back in the US with new hair: short and spicy!

I took a little break from the blog, but I’m back! There has been some changes. I’m a year older now (my birthday was on August 9), I’m back in the US after being in The Netherlands for a couple of months and there’s something else that’s new… I cut my hair! I was tired of having long hair and I wanted something new. No more Pocahontas! Here’s my before picture, in case you’ve forgotten how I looked like. 😀 Hair before Top: Summum // Jeroen Beekman I’ve had long hair for years (since high school), so this is a...

Tips for Bad Hair Days (courtesy of myself and the Aflac Duck)

This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Aflac. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine. Bad hair days, who doesn’t have them? I’m the kind of person who loves doing my makeup, but when it comes to my hair…I rather skip it! Makeup is much more fun to do than hair, if you ask me. To make things worse: sometimes my hair just does not want to cooperate. Because I still want to look presentable, even on those bad hair days, I have come up with 3...

Ciao Bella! Check out my 2015 Bella Voxbox from Influenster

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. For the last couple of days I’ve been waking up at 6 AM. Six in the morning! Whyyyy would I wake up that early if I don’t have to? I so don’t like it, because it basically means that at the end of the afternoon I’ll be tired again. Ugh. Something I do like? Receiving a box full of goodies! I’m always excited when I get packages in the mail, but I was extra excited about this one, because I hadn’t received anything from Influenster in a while. I was...
