Hello there guys. Here I am again with a new Wednesday Beauty Day post after a long time. This time I am sharing a video of myself. My first ever beauty vlog is now available on my YouTube channel. It is my Sunday basic hair and facial routine which I filmed last year, but this routine is still very much accurate. Continue reading “#WBD: My first beauty vlog – Basic hair and facial routine”
Today I’m showing you how I achieve my simple colourful make up look that goes pretty much with any colourful outfit. This look is also perfect with an all black, all white or black and white outfit. A perfect make up look for this spring/summer season. Continue reading “#WBD: My simple colourful make up look”
Lately you guys have seen my rocking it straight on my instagram and here on the blog. You know what I’m talking about. About two and a half weeks ago I felt like changing up my hairdo for the last winter weeks, so I decided to trade in my natural curls for straight hair. Keeping my curls in place is a task that takes time and I didn’t feel like doing that these days. It was time for something easier that involves less time styling my hair. Straightening it.

Last week I posted some pictures of me going natural with no make up on in a beauty post. With this post I was trying to inspire ladies to go au naturel and leave their make up in the make up bag for a change. To dare to go bare and be a bare beauty. But, actually no make up wasn’t entirely true. As you can clearly see on this photo above, I was wearing something. Can you guess what it is?? Continue reading “Dare to go bare: the reveal and the real”
Giving you a few snapshots of the look I had on a birthday six years ago. This photo was taken at a restaurant in one of my favourite places in the Netherlands, that gives me the ultimate holiday/ bday weekend feeling: Scheveningen. This is a place in The Hague with the most wonderful boulevard in all of Holland. We had dinner at Masada Grill and I had my favourite food: pasta!

So many women will not leave their house without putting layers of make up on their face. Now why is that? Does it have to do with their self-esteem or confidence, do they need to please men by looking dolled up all the time? Do they believe they’re not pretty without make up? Or is it just a fun thing to play with make up. To me its is always the last one. Continue reading “Dare to go bare”
Sometimes it’s nice to dress the theme of the party where you’re going. As a Surinamese girl I love listening to dancehall & reggae and I visit the nr 1 party in that category in the Netherlands: Jamrock. In 2011 there was a ladies theme so I decided to dress up for this event and paint my nails with the Jamaican Flag. Welcome to Jamrock! … Continue reading Flashback Friday: Welcome to Jamrock 2011
On Saturday April 26, as you can read in my previous post “Open Air Boutique on Kingsday”, it was the first Kingsday in the Netherlands. I also shared with you that I participated on the free market with my cousins by presenting our own Open Air Boutique. After a fun day of releasing my inner sales person, I went to Amsterdam city with my best friend. Since it was Kingsday I wanted to dress appropriately, with a royal touch, and so I did. With my natural curly hair it is always a bit of a task to get a proper hairdo, and I didn’t feel like taking on this task that day. Instead of spending half an hour getting my hair done, I choose to go African chic with one of the trending items of today, the headscarf. Continue reading “A touch of African Queen on Kingsday”
After two and a half months I finally got me a pedicure again. I know, that is a long time. Wearing high heels all the time can make your feet become hard underneath, and after all this time you can imagine the amount of callous I had on my heels too. Because I don’t have the right tools to remove all of this I decided to go to Coco Nails & Spa in Almere and get a pedicure there. In this plog I will show you the step by step action of my pedicure so that you can see that it is easy to do if you have the right tools at home. Or otherwise you can see what to expect when you go get a pedicure and gel nail polish after.
Two weeks ago I found my renewed love for Primark and went for a little shopping at Primark Almere that weekend. Like I promised in my post “My renewed love for Primark” I would do a haul of the things I purchased. Today I finally took the pictures of everything I got the day I found my love for Primark again. In my firts haul I give you my first big Primark purchase.
Every woman has her own little obsessions when it comes to fashion. So do I. Over these passed years I’ve realised that I have a few things I am totally crazy about, that I buy them on a regular basis. Here it comes. Continue reading “Things I am obsessed with”
My first visit to a Primark store was in june 2011, in the city Hoofddorp, Netherlands. I’ve heard about this store where you can buy great fashion for very low prices. But back then Primark wasn’t in my city yet. The day I visited Primark was actually a day that I had a promotion gig for Lipton Ice Tea in the centre of Hoofddorp. Every once in a while a do these projects for A class brands. So that day after work was done my colleagues decided to go shopping at Primark and, since I’ve never been and was curious about it, I decided to join them.
