HAPPY NEW YEAR.

H A P P Y  N E W  Y E A R.  2017

I wish the person that is reading this nothing but the best and may all your wishes come to reality. That all the good karma you put out into this world finds its way right back to you, be it in one day or one month. Positivity!

2016 has flown by so fast and so much has happened in my life over the year. There has been many high points and very low points in my 2016. At the beginning of the year I found out someone in my family had cancer which honestly hit me really hard and had me feel really sad about the whole situation. (Thankfully they are doing much better now) Then I got my very 1st fully OWN apartment (I am renting not bought), furnished and did everything with my own money. (INDEPENDENT WOMAN) I must say I am super proud of myself for that. I handed in my thesis and found out I failed it on the 1st try. (Was super down again about that) After I found out my Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle were coming to visit me in the Netherlands. (SUPER HAPPY moment) Redoing my thesis and then PASSING! (Proud moment) Then officially graduating from my bachelor study! (Phewwww) Those were the biggest/most highlighted moments from my 2016.

New Year….New Goals?

Of course! Ever year I make goals and keep them for myself. I don’t really share them with people because I feel like not everyone you share your goals with will support you. So to be safe just keep them to yourself and push to achieve them. I have my list of goals and hopefully by the end of 2017 I can mark off a few that I achieved. 🙂

One thing that I have noticed about myself is that I don’t celebrate the small or big moments enough. This year I will be working on celebrating every moment and actually inhaling all that is happening. Taking the time to process the happening. Along with that I want to continue to work on myself mentally. Developing more personally on a level and loving me MORE!

For my blogging and vlogging life I want to put myself on a schedule of a blog post every Wednesday and video every Sunday. I hope that this is something I can stick with because sometimes I allow other things to come in place of doing the things I have a passion for.

There is so much in life to be grateful for and I just hope that in 2017 I can practice what I preach. Giving GOOD VIBES ONLY!

Let’s Catch Up!

Hi Lovely People,

I have been on the down low for a few weeks now. That is because I have been feeling so low mentally and then being hit with a flu that lasted about 1 month (ughh). I am currently still a bit stuffy but my energy levels have risen so much. Mental issues are just not talked about and seem to be a bit taboo. No one talks about it or even if they do, don’t know how to address the topic. However, I have been seeking help and what I have learned is that I need to keep myself busy with people and things. For the past few weeks even though I have been feeling very ill with the flu and a bit down I started doing more stuff with friends and trying to stay a bit busy. Not always does it work out but for the most part I have been so much more contented!

Not to just create this entire blog post about my mental issues but also about what I have been up to and what’s on my mind. For the past weeks it has been very entertaining to be cooking, trying out new foods and meeting up with friends for drinks or just to catch up. Like just last-night I went out to have typical Eritrean/Ethiopian food and it was very tasty. I inserted some pictures below so you can see what I ate, on the side we had exotic beer called Mongozo and got the coconut and mango flavours. They were amazing, nothing like your typical beer!

For the coming weeks I want to finish editing my London Haul which I filmed after I came back from London. Sharing so many new goodies I got myself while I was there. And also a fast make-up look that I filmed last night before going out. There is so many ideas I have but I just need to stop deliberating, get off my lazy butt and DO IT! Until the next post which I hope will not be too far from now….

UPDATE|PLUS 2 NEW VIDEOS.

Hi There Love,

I am back with a little life update and to share with you two new videos that are new and live on my YouTube Channel.

Update//.

It’s officially going to happen. I am graduating this Thursday from my bachelor study of International Communications Management. I should be extremely excited/happy/proud but honestly I am not… I don’t know if its because I have heard so long ago that I passed or that I am dealing with some extremely personal issues that I hope to share in the future or if I am just feeling anxious about what the future has to offer me. But no matter what I will make sure to be there on the day to collect my diploma. Today I am going into the city a bit earlier before work in search for an outfit for this special day and maybe that might just do the trick (honesty I doubt it).

I know that some are still wondering what I am up to career-wise and for now I still have my part-time job in retail at Zara and applying for jobs in the field of what I studied. I was a bit indecisive if I actually want to do that but come on that is where the money is and I did not ‘waste’ all of those years not to at least try the corporate/professional field out. On the side I am looking and planning to study something else in 2017…but you will just have to wait and see what that is.

Last week I came back from visiting a friend in London and I do have some amazing pictures and footage to share with you all beautiful followers. This blog post/video should be up on my channels by Friday this week. Stay tuned!

Have you also struggled with keeping your levels of positivity up? What do you do to keep them flowing?

The two new videos I have share can be seen below.

Even though I am done with my Bachelor study, I am looking forward to starting something new 😉 ( I will share in the future) Currently I have my part-time job at Zara and seeing that I will not have to stress with school stuff anymore, I can now get back to Blogging & Vlogging.

Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit Swatches On Dark Skin | SJ’s Obsessions

Finally got my hands on the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits! (yayyy)

There has been so much talk in the online beauty world about how great, terrible, fabulous and over-priced the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits are. I have never been a fan of the Kardashian’s or anything that regards their family however, I am a sucker from a great lippie or a long-lasting matte lipstick.

My Aunt and I were very interested in trying them for ourselves, so she tried really hard to make an order because those products always get bought/sold-out within 10 minutes (or so it feels like). But lucky her she got to order five different shades. The shades that were captured were:

Koko K

Candy K

Posie K 

22

True Brown K

Each Lip Kit costs $29 and the talk on the internet was that they are over priced but in my opinion they are affordable. You can spend about $33.50 at MAC Cosmetics for a lipstick and lip pencil. Maybe Kylie Cosmetics is new to the market but I was all in for giving it a try. In my opinion I like the formula that the liquid lipsticks have, they have a sort of vanilla/strawberry smell, the texture is smooth, moveable and buildable. For the lip liners they are very creamy and can be worn alone.

Pros: (Matte Liquid Lipstick – Long-Lasting, Highly-Pigmented, Smells Great) (Lip Liner – Creamy, Good Quality)

Cons: (Matte Liquid Lipstick & Lip Liner – Drying, Cheaper Similar Dupes Available)

There are some dupes out there from a more affordable brand called ColourPop they have a wide lovely array of shades and finishes to choose from. But in concluding my blog post of the Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick and Lip Liner – Lip Kits  I would advise any lip product lover to get their hands on at least one unique shade.

Do you have any of the Kylie Cosmetics products? What are your thoughts on them? And if you don’t have any, which are you trying to get your hands on?

Keukenhof 2016

Keukenhof Visit 2016.

On Monday May 16th, I went to the Keukenhof with my family who is currently visiting me from my home, Saba. Keukenhof is also known as the Garden of Europe which is one of the world’s largest flower gardens. It is amazingly beautiful & has so many different flowers. When you first think about visiting a flower garden you may just think ‘Why would I want to see flowers and visit a flower garden?‘ but trust me it is an experience worth experiencing. 🙂

Below I added some pictures that I took during our visit. To get to the Keukenhof we took a tram, train, bus and then walked around the area. The trip from where I live took about 1 hour and a half. My favourite was the blue orchid however, at every section we kept on saying ‘Oh this is pretty…No this is pretty…Ohh well they are ALL PRETTY’.  At no point could you just choose one favorite because they all had unique traits which made the whole garden exceptionally perfect. During the visit to the garden there was about a 15 minutes shower of rain and we quickly had to seek shelter due to the fact that we weren’t fully prepared. However, after it rained I took even more stunning pictures because the rain drops gave a wet texture to the petals. And in my option these pictures came out BEST!

My lilac bomber is from FashionNova and it is called the Picture Me Rollin’ Jacket – Lilac’. This is the perfect spring time bomber that I found online. I haven’t ran into anyone that has anything like it in the Netherlands. I also got a lot of compliments on my lippie colour which complimented my lilac bomber!

PATCHES, PATCHES….P A T C H E S!

Hi There,

Patches, Patches, PATCHES! They are currently trending and is a fashion MUST-HAVE. Whether they be on your jacket, shirt, pants, jumper or bag?! This small cross-body bag was too cute to pass. I believe about two weeks before ZARA got this bag online and in-stores, I posted the ‘NO BAD VIBES’ picture on my Instagram page. & then one day while browsing ZARA’s shopping app I saw that same quote was on a bag! (GREAT) So I had to have it. But it sold out so quickly I did not even get the chance to purchase one ( 🙁 ) , but one lucky day I was at the cash point and there was a client bring two of the bags back! Of course I took it!

I love styling my small cross-body bag with my flat black shoes from Primark. I don’t remember the price but they were very affordable and are comfortable to walk in! What do you think about this look? & Don’t forget to like and comment on this post.

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.
