Beauty from within: Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea

​​ I’m continuing my Beauty from Within series with my favorite tea at the moment. When you first think of Dandelion Root Tea (paardebloem wortel in Dutch), you don’t think of anything special. At least I didn’t. Until I received it in the mail and I looked up its properties. Its medicinal benefits is what attracted me to this tea, along with the fact that it’s caffeine-free (caffeine makes me jittery!). I could drink this tea all day long! Dandelion root has been used throughout history for its medicinal and dietary properties. These days, dandelion root tea is used as...

Beauty from within: Fresh Salads from Wendy’s #BeyondTheBowl

For those who don’t know, I’ve been on a quest to make better food choices. I’m doing pretty good as far as home cooked dinners go (for example, I always include an organic vegetable or two), but my major downfall is lunch. I’m usually too occupied with other stuff to really take the time to prepare a good lunch for myself and then to sit down and eat it. I’m way more concerned about what my toddler’s eating and if he’s finishing his plate or not, I’m sure most moms can relate! ​​​​​ I was recently giving the opportunity to...

Why I take Super Strength Probiotics…

Today’s post isn’t about beauty, it’s about health. Nothing’s more important than your health, right? When you are physically fit, it reflects on how you feel and how you look. A while ago my doctor recommended Probiotics to me. My health wasn’t the greatest and in order to strengthen my immune system, I was told to start taking Probiotics on a daily basis. I didn’t do it though. I forgot about it until I was contacted by ZenwiseLabs to try their Super Strength Probiotics for review purposes. I then remembered what the doctor had told me and that I should...

Candles make me happy! Like the 50 Shades gift set from Old Factory

The best part about Fall is the fact that it’s ok to wear dark lipstick on a daily basis, it’s hip to order Salted Caramel Hot Chocolates at Starbucks and burning candles all day long is considered normal. The candles that have been burning all over our apartment lately are by Old Factory Candles. And because nothing is never normal around here, neither are our candles. 😀 The candles are from the 50 Shades collection. Old Factory carries a bunch of different collections and this is far out the most…adventurous? ​​ The 2-ounce candles that come in this set are:...

My first event in Vegas! About Creme of Nature hair care, women and wealth

On Saturday I attended my first event in Las Vegas for Kizzy Online! Woohoo! 🙂 I was invited to be one of the guests at the Women, Wealth and Relationships Forum, held in the Orleans Arena. The seminar was sponsored by haircare brand Creme of Nature and organized by legendary lyricist and iconic hip-hop pioneer MC Lyte (such a beauty!) and her Hip Hop Sisters Network. It featured celebrity financial coach/author Lynn Richardson and a celebrity panel with MC Lyte, Nicci Gilbert, Marla Wilson, Luenell, Denise Boutte and Dj Thump. All successful and beautiful people. ​​ Luenell, Dj Thump, Nicci...

All about my Halloween! [picture heavy]

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great (Halloween) weekend! I sure did! This was our first Halloween living in Vegas and we had a blast! I posted some of these pics on Instagram, but I thought it would be nice to post them here as well. 🙂 ​​ So this is me. Don’t ask me what I’m dressed up as, cause I’m not really sure. I would say a masquerade ball attendee? Something like that! Lol! ​​ ​​ Here I am without the mask. I did my regular ‘going out’ makeup with a dark lip, but I did accentuate my...

We’ve moved to Las Vegas!

I’ve been mentioning it here and there (it’s been in the works for months) and now it finally happened! We have moved to a different state! As you now I am Dutch (born and raised) and in 2010 my husband and I moved from The Netherlands to California (my hubby’s from Southern California). We stayed in San Francisco. After being there for 6 months we moved to Ohio, because of a job opportunity. Well, this job opportunity kept us in Ohio for a bit, then the company moved us to Northern Kentucky (not far from where we lived in Cincinnati,...

20 (Beauty) Facts About Me!

I was tagged by a couple of lovely ladies on Instagram to do this tag. I’ve seen a bunch of people doing it, especially Dutch bloggers. The tag is to share 20 things you didn’t know about me. Because I like to keep this beauty related, here are 20 random beauty facts. Hope you enjoy! Let me know if anything ‘surprises’ you. 😀 ​​ ​​ ​​1​​ I love makeup, but I’m very lazy when it comes to application.

Things you should NOT do before bedtime

I’ve been having some trouble sleeping lately. Even when I’m really tired (which is most of the time), I can’t seem to fall asleep at a normal time. My toddler wakes me up every morning around 7 and for this reason alone I’d LOVE to sleep before midnight. But most nights I just can’t bring myself to do so. 🙁 Even when I do go to bed on time, I don’t sleep until 1 or 2. This is me, basically: In order to be more energetic, I looked up some things to help me sleep. I decided to share 3...

My ‘FOTD’ (and a peek at my makeup storage here in Holland)

Giveaway: win a $50 gift certificate to Midnight Velvet to spend on fashion, jewelry, shoes or home decor. Go here for details. This post is going to be a little all over the place. My FOTD (‘face of the day‘), which products I used, how I store my makeup while staying in Holland and more. Oops! 😀 I’ve been extremely under the weather this past week. Just haven’t been feeling well: headaches, stomach aches, body aches, sore throat…I’ve had it all. This explains the lack of blog posts. Combine that with having to take care of a very active toddler…...
