My holy grail for Summer: Olay Complete All-Day Moisturizer SPF 15

Guess who’s back! I’ve been away for a little bit to enjoy some time with my family who came to visit from The Netherlands. We had a wonderful time! I was sad to see them go, but one of the things that keep me going, so to speak, is knowing that summer is here! I seriously live for the summer, it’s always been my favorite season. 🙂 I know for some of us, summer is the season of dread, because it’s also the season of during which you’re required to wear sunscreen every day. Warmer months naturally mean more time...

The unicorn of moisturizers: Olay Whips

Spring is here! Spring means the sun is showing itself more now. Spring for me also means Spring cleaning! I’ve been going through my makeup and skincare products and getting rid of everything I’ve never used or will never use. I’ve also been simplifying my regimen. A product that I’ve completely eliminated is makeup primer. I started using a new moisturizer that has replaced my previous moisturizer AND primer: Olay Whips. This moisturizer is different than your average lightweight moisturizer: it’s ideal before makeup because it works just like a primer. Some call it a “no primer, primer” and I...

Resetting my skin with Olay

I’m back! The other day I showed you guys my favorite products. I mentioned that my focus lately has been on ‘resetting’ my skin and that is exactly what I want to talk to you about today. As you know, I’ve been trying to get my skin back into shape. So far it’s been going great and I am loving the results. 🙂 I thought this would be a good time to touch base with you guys and tell you about my current regimen. As you might recall, I completed the Olay 28 Day Challenge. After this, I continued using...

IT Cosmetics’ New Year, New Confidence in Your Skin! 5-Piece Collection

Hi guys! Remember me? I’ve been in a slump lately. There’s lots going on and up until today I had no motivation whatsoever to update this blog. However, I’ve been missing it more and more, so here I am! 🙂 I was sent a package from IT Cosmetics with a collection of (new) products to try. Love it! The set is actually on QVC right now as Today’s Special Value, so I thought this would be a good time to share my pictures and thoughts. The 5 piece collection is called: IT Cosmetics’ New Year, New Confidence in Your Skin!...

I’m doing the Olay 28 Day Challenge

Ever had a moment in the mirror? I had one the other day. I looked in the mirror the other day and thought ‘man, I’m getting old’. I’ll be 39 next year, awfully close to being 40…yikes! In order to get my skin back on track, I’m taking the Olay 28 Day Challenge. This is an easy-to-follow daily skincare routine comprised of the best Olay products that have been clinically proven to make skin look younger in 28 days.

Review: White Marble Bright Face Mask by Erno Laszlo #GlowBetter

Guess who’s back from another hiatus? This girl. Oops! It’s been a while since my last blog post. I’m going to try to do better! Life has been super hectic lately. Mostly good though. Mason is doing really well at school and our baby girl is now exactly 14 months. Yay! I stopped breastfeeding about a month ago and now my hormones have been all over the place. My skin hasn’t been at its best, so I’ve switched up my skincare routine. I’ve been using some new (to me) products, one of it being the White Marble Bright Face Mask...

The Oxygen Beauty Spa: my first impression

Yes, that is me! 😀 Laying in a luxurious spa, surrounded by millions of oxygenated micro bubbles. I’ve had some pretty hectic weeks lately, so this past weekend I decided to treat myself to a treatment in an Oxygen Beauty Spa. I’m sure you’re wondering what this is… Trust me, I did too! I’ll explain in this post. The Oxygen Beauty Spa is a self-contained and eco-friendly spa that you can place inside your home, in your backyard or on your patio. It does not need to be connected to your home’s drainage system. The spa is filled with regular...

FBE’s monthly beauty giveaway + throwback pics of our son’s first day of school

Last time I was here a few days ago and I mentioned that Mason (5) had started kindergarten (kleuterschool, in Dutch). I promised to post some pics of him on Instagram, but like with most of my promises recently…I didn’t keep it (sadly). I’ve actually been off social media for a while now and it’s kind of a ‘step’ to get back on… I have been checking Facebook once in a while, but that’s about it. Because I didn’t post these pics there, I decided to put them here instead. So here’s Mason posing and holding different objects on his...
