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™ – Leave-In Conditioning Crème (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™. 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™ product and paying only €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 😉

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! Morphe palettes are usually always sold out so if you get the chance to get your hands on anyone GRAB IT (you won’t be sorry). The finish of the shades run from matte to shimmer and then natural to orange burnt to browns. 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.

Dimensions of Palette:

Length:9″
Width: 6 1/2″
Thickness: 1/2″

Number of Pans: 35
Pan Size: 1″

Follow my Instagram @SJs_Obsessions for make-up looks that I will share of looks created using Morphe 35O Palette!

HOW I COVER MY ACNE SCARRING| 2015

Hi Loves,

I had to get this video filmed and shared before this year came to an end. My BIGGEST INSECURITY – MY ACNE SCARS. For the longest of time I have been dealing with having acne then it scarring and becoming dark marks/hyper-pigmentation. It happens because I squeeze or pick at them and even due to the fact that I do not treat them well at times. There is a lot of times when my skin has been picture perfect (hasn’t been so recently) and then times when it gets even worst then how it is now.

In my new video I share with you how I cover my acne scars with make-up. Of course I do not wear make-up every day for long periods every time, but I do when I go around people I do not know, to school and work. When I am finished with a long day the first thing I want to do is to take of the make-up once I am home! [Relief] Also I usually keep one or two days of the week to not wear make-up and just let my face breathe.

Enjoy the video…

Weekly Obsessions | Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder

Hi Loves!

It is time that I share with you this weeks ‘Weekly Wednesday Obsession’. This week my featured obsession is the Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder (See pictures below).

IMG_8710IMG_8715IMG_8717

[INFORMATION FROM THE WEBSITE]

“Buttercup is completely flash-friendly, with just one shade for all skin tones and skin types. It can be used to highlight, set your concealer or can be applied liberally over the entire face.  It does not give off the white cast or turn ashy in bright lighting or photos, as with other setting powders. Buttercup Powder absorbs oil, reduces shine and keeps your face matte for hours. It is finely milled so it glides onto the skin, blends easily and softens the appearance of fine lines and pores, without looking caked on.”

Vanity Planet – Spin for Perfect Skin

Finally got myself a cleansing brush! I know I am not the only one suffering from ‘acne’ and hyper-pigmentation but sometimes I just feel like I am ALONE and Just want it to disappear….Having acne breakouts that then turn into dark marks on your body can be a confidence killer! But I am still on the run to find what works for me. My goal is to have more than 50% of my hyper-pigmentation gone before December. I want to be confident enough to walk around with a bare face that looks fine (to me) without make-up on. However, enough about my worries on my skin issues let’s get back to what I bought myself. & another day I will share a detailed blog post all about my skin worries/issues.

Since last year I have been eyeing the Clarisonic, however, I was not ready to pay about €200 for it. But when I came across a video where NikkieTutorials was showing what she used to clean her face & she had a 70% discount code I had to check it out!

The Spin for Perfect Skin which can be ordered on VanityPlanet and it is originally priced at $100 but with the 70% discount code from NikkieTutorials it came out to $30.00 and $9.00 for shipping. Total = $39.99 or €36,87 isn’t that amazing?! Adding to that the shipping to the Netherlands was fast as well, within 5 days it was here.

Party Over Hair

Party Over Hair | Event

Party Over Hair is happening exactly one month from day! On Saturday, November 7th MyBlackHair.NL is organising this awesome event celebrating women who are OBSESSED with their hair & beauty! So no matter your hair type or style – curly, kinky, transitioning, weaved, relaxed, braided, straightened, bald or even confused is invited 🙂 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. Kleurmoi known for her make-up tips and exquisite makeup and Ashlee Jenelle  who will be sharing tips & tricks about fashion and appearance. Cantu, Motions and Kera Care shall also be having pop-up salons where we can get to know more about our hair as well as the products they have to offer. So I think it is fair enough to say that we can conclude that this day will NOT be one that you wanna miss!!
