WINTER WASH & GO ft. MIXED CHICKS & SHEADO

NEW VIDEO.

My updated Wash & Go that I have been using this winter. Even though it is much colder I still like to do a Wash & Go routine, I have been also reaching for the Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner as my preferred styler and sealing in the moisture with only some Liquid Gold HairButter from Sheado. My hair has been reacting very well to this combination. I think my recent hair cut has a lot to do with my curls and products doing well in my hair. My hair was shaped at the SheaDo salon in The Hague. I loved the end result because my hair was in dire need of a trim.

MY 2nd TIME (FULL BRAZILIAN WAX)

This might be TMI (Too Much Information) for some but hey we are all adults here right?… & by the way this is a lifestyle blog! ūüôā

Now let’s start the conversation about my 1st and 2nd time having the full Brazilian wax done. I experienced my first time back in July and my second time just this week! I feel super proud of myself because I talked about having a full Brazilian wax done for so long. But like most I am so embarrassed/ashamed/terrified even when just thinking that I have to lay down on a bed and someone if literally right up into well onto and touching my penny (lol, that was the name I called ‘it’ my¬†vajayjay/vagina since young) with a bright light and probably criticising how mines look.

Even now while writing this I feel like ‘Girl you survived’. And I am getting over it because the¬†fact of the matter is that it is their job¬†and they have probably done this 500 times before you and they are just doing their job.

Let’s talk about the pain, comparing the two times I believe that it did get better. The first time of course it was a bit painful however, it is not a pain that lasts all day, where your penny ūüôā just feels like it is burning or just an unnatural. When the wax is applied they allow it to dry and then gently pull. After the wax is completely pulled of they apply pressure to the spot and then instantly or almost instantly it is relieved. For me this was done for the whole thing & for my second time I dared to get the back door also done! (lol are you also laughing while reading this?) The back door was so much easier and faster, she used the general wax and then applied the one that is used for the smaller hair.

One funny¬†part for me was the way in which you lay down for the front and the back. For the front you are on your back and your under feet are touching, so that she can get up in there. For the back you have to lay on your belly and hold your butt cheeks so that they don’t stick together! (lol, just imagine that)

I would say that a full waxing session takes about 30-45 minutes and it goes by so fast. It is not awkward while laying there, well at least not for me. I make sure not to look at what she is doing and just keep my head up, hands together and talk. Talking about yourself and sharing stories in general like any other salon experience. & the finally the final result is amazing! Everything is super soft for days and you are instantly beach ready.

The salon I visited is located in The Hague and so far I am super happy with their service. It is super clean and they are so professional.

Have you though about getting the full Brazilian done? What was you biggest fear? What did you think about it?

ENTWINE NATURALLE COUTURE @PEARLEVENT

This past Sunday I was at the Pearl Event with Entwine Naturalle Couture. I stood with them as a ‘Brand Specialist’ and I must say I love doing this because I get to¬†share the natural hair¬†product’s¬†information with others. I also get to meet so many different beautiful people.

During my conversations with the visiter I felt like my energy was running quite low. I was so tired from working about 8hrs the pervious day and being busy all week. However, I tried to do my best with interacting and asking the booth visitors if they heard or knew the product, shared information on how they assists with hydration and shared the specials we were offering at the event.

ROOTS PR – PRESS EVENT |Bloggers, Vloggers & Influencers

Hi Loves,

On Sunday I attended the ROOTS PR – Press Event for Bloggers, Vloggers and Influencers. This was an event that was held at a warm¬†venue in Amsterdam and in attendance was some of the best coloured Blogger, Vloggers and Influencers in the Netherlands. It was a great experience getting to meet some of beautiful people I have been following and never met in person some of them include the following¬†J’adoreMyCurls, ¬†This Girl’s Black Book¬†and Black Loves Gold.

During this event 3 workshops were held; ‘How to earn money with your Blog’ followed by ‘From Blog to Vlog’ and then SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)’¬†. Each of the workshops was¬†conducted by experts in the area and they shared a lot of valuable information. I made sure and took notes and marked down all important information shared.

One of the main points that I took from these workshops and the event itself is that it is important to stand strong in what I share on my blog and in vlogs. It was also shared that networking and connecting with likeminded Bloggers and Vlogger. And that it is not about me wanting to be found but more about the fact of finding the target group. Overall I must say that the event was a success and I am looking forward to what is to come in the near. And then not forgetting the goodie bag we received at the end of the event… It was great! SOoOoOo many different hair, skin care and beauty products. This was one of the best goodie bags I have received¬†at any event and will be doing reviews on the products I received.

Below I have added some images that I took during the day!

Enjoy!

GRWM | RED LIPS GLAM @SJs_Obsessions

Hi Loves,

First video on my YouTube Channel for the year. In the video I share with you a look I wore over the weekend and I call it my ‘Red Lips Glam’.¬†GRWM stands for Get Ready With Me, these videos are very popular on YouTube and I love creating them.¬†This look was¬†created using three shadows from the the Morphe 35O palette. This palette is very versatile and a lot of different looks can be created using it. This is a simple look that does not have too much shadows used and is easily to blend.¬†Do you have it as yet?

On the day that I filmed I also took some beautiful pictures outside of my make-up look. Below I have added some pictures showing you how it looks in natural day light.

Enjoy the video…

WEEKLY OBSESSION | HAIR PRODUCT

Hi there!

My first ‘Obsession‘ of the YEAR goes to….¬†ORS – Curls unleased‚ĄĘ¬†– Leave-In Conditioning Cr√®me (cocoa & shea butter). I have been reaching for this leave-in ever since I purchased it. It goes great in combination with all of my favourite styling products, so no white product build-up! It has a very nutty, cocoa, shea butter smell & I love it! Another plus point of this product is that 16oz. of product sits in this big enough pot, meaning you can always reach for some leave-in and it won’t finish within 2 weeks. (NATURAL HAIR PROBLEMS)

Over all I am OBSESSED about this new leave-in from¬†Curls unleased‚ĄĘ. The only strange thing is that I can not find it¬†on their website or much about it on a google search. I remember buying this product along with another¬†ORS – Curls unleased‚ĄĘ product and paying only¬†‚ā¨10 for the two & for me that was a steal of a deal. (These deals you will usually catch at Natural Hair Events)

I use this Leave-In Conditioning Crème (cocoa & shea butter) right after I co-wash my hair. When I have time in shower I apply this leave-in to my very damp hair or sometimes when I am more in a rush I apply it out of shower to damp hair. After apply this leave-in I mainly reach for my favourite styling products and my Wash&Go is complete. Another way in which I like using this is when I am going to twist my hair. First spraying my hair lightly with water and then applying this leave it. It helps with the detangling process as well as adding back moisture to my hair.

I would highly recommend this product for those of you looking for a new leave-in. Give it a try and who knows this might just turn out to be your new ‘OBSESSION‘ as well ūüėČ

Love always,

Sue-Jeen.

MORPHE 35O PALETTE

Hi Beautiful,

A while back I received the 35O – 35 COLOR NATURE GLOW EYESHADOW PALETTE! This is a great must-have; natural to glam palette that every glamour girl¬†should have!

Gorgeous shades, appropriate for all skin tones. Adding to that the pigmentation of these eyeshadows are very vibrant and the blend-ability is also easy. So you can use these shades to create a fancy cut crease or even a simple statement daytime look.¬†This one is my first Morphe palette and I am looking forward to my next purchase from them.

You can purchase this palette as well as other online at Morphe products from MorpheBrushes located in America and Boozyshop located in the Netherlands.

So no matter your hair type or style – curly, kinky, transitioning, weaved, relaxed, braided, straightened, bald or even confused is invited ūüôā I find the name of the event to be so uniquely cute, the use of the word ‘hair’ instead of ‘here’ is perfect and of course catchy.¬†The ‘Party Over Hair’ all takes places at ‘Het Sieraad’ in Amsterdam and the doors will be opening at 12:00 until 19:00.

It will be a day full of getting to know different products and items along with workshops given by some big names on social media.
