It’s almost Kingsday! A Dutch national holiday when we celebrate the king’s birthday by partying, dressing in orange, and selling our unwanted posessions on the street. It’s a very strange holiday but we love it, so today I’m going to show you how I get ready for Kingsday in the Netherlands!
When it comes to my skin and hair, I highly prefer to use natural products and try to stay away from harsh and dangerous chemicals. Natural skincare is pretty hard to come by in the Netherlands, but every now and then I get the chance to try out products from abroad. I love to test these out for you and let you know whether they’re worth your money!
A little over a year ago I got sent a couple of products from Michael Todd true organics. I said back then that I would update you after I’d used the products for a while, so what better time to do that than after I’ve used them up? I used up a serum and an eye cream, both of which lasted me almost a year. I’m very economic with my use of beauty product so they tend to last me a very long time and often organic skincare goes bad before I use it up, but luckily these didn’t expire and wouldn’t have expired until a few months after I used them up.
Let’s see what I thought about these products!
Last week in my Dublin haul, I showed you I got the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. Many of you said you’d love to see a makeup look with it and this is what I came up with! A wearable taupe smoky eye. Enjoy the tutorial!
Time for another episode of Hair History. Today it’s time to tackle to age of gods and goddesses, philosophers and poets. We’re going over Ancient Greece! I’m going to talk to you about the significance of hair, the rituals and styles that were done with them, and of course show you how to do a proper Ancient Greek hairstyle. Enjoy!
There’s a new wave of popularity for minimalism. I’ve been a bit reluctant (as with all new things) to look into it but it keeps popping up and I have to say, I’m starting to get intrigued.
I love pretty things, and that’s the main reason why I was reluctant to check out minimalism. But the more I look into it, the more I realise it’s ok to keep my pretty things. I just need to get rid of the things that don’t add any value to my life anymore. And since my pretty things bring me joy every time I look at them and/or use them, there is no reason to throw them out. It’s not about having as little as possible, or at least that’s not the point for me.
