Tropical Summer Vacation|Vlog 3


I know, I know….it has a month since I am back from vacation & I am only now uploading my last Vlog of my Tropical Summer Vacation. But life happened and I was not feeling motivated to upload anything. During my vacation the time it took to upload really turned me off. I mean do you think 3 days to upload one little video is normal? (LOL)

Anyway, in this my new video I share some beautiful scenery from the islands Saba and St.Maarten. I must say I dearly miss the clear blue skies 🙁 Oh well I have these videos to look back on the moments I had.

Enjoy! & if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask 🙂


Love always.

Hi Loves!

While on vacation in Saba I took so many pictures! I thought it would be a great idea to share some of them with. Below you will get to enjoy them, showing the scenery and floral on Saba 🙂

At the ending I have added a few pictures that I took on St.Maarten right before leaving to return back to the Netherlands. I miss being on the island with my family and friends. This summer was so much fun and I enjoyed everyday of it.

I hope my pictures give you a feeling of wanting to visit the islands as well! Let me know what you think about them!!

Love Always,

INGLOT Curaçao

This is a post that was supposed to be posted about two weeks ago, Opess….

Let’s just get right to it! The day after arriving on Curaçao I went out with my Mother & Aunt to do some shopping. My favourite items to shop for out of the Netherlands are always beauty and cosmetics. I feel that the selection we have back in the Netherlands is not always as large. & I love trying out new brands!

About three years ago I visited the INGLOT branch in Curaçao and bought a white eyeliner. I was happy with the purchase but since then I did not try anything from them. This time I wanted to try and get my hands on some dramatic and sultry eyelashes. But that did not happen because they were all out of the ones that I wanted 🙁 But I thought *hmmmm, why not try something different*.

Soooooo I then found these beautiful blue feather lashes and said “YES, I need those!”

  • Eyelashes/Faux-Cils (Decorated Feather Eyelashes) #37F



The lady that owns the shop was so nice and showed me this amazing Mattifying Pressed Powder. This Powder is amazing & everyone who wears makeup while in sunny/hot places needs this. This powder should be used on top of your make-up. It helps to block out all the oils that forms during the day.

  • Mattifying Pressed Powder #301



I also got his new pigment eye shadow that has a beautiful undertone. I did some research and found out that it is perspiration resistant, contains vitamin E, and is talc-free. Adding to that most AMC pigments are mostly having a matte base combined with glitter or shimmer. This pure pigment eye shadow has a stunning pink and orange duo undertone.

  • AMC (Advanced Makeup Components) | Pure Pigment Eye Shadow

Shete Boka National Park|Curaçao

Hi there!

Before going for an afternoon swim at Playa Kenepa Chiki (a beach) that is the direction of Banda Abou (west side of the island) we took a stop at the National Park – Shete Boka. The meaning of Shete Boka is “Seven Inlets” in English.

The park begins with a beautiful walk to where the waves come smashing up. After walking a little further down there is a cave where the performing waves give a spectacular show! They come rolling in over about 2 natural speed bumps. This is figuratively speaking however it is incredible. It is very important to be very careful while in there because those waves are extremely powerful. Continue reading

Dinah Veeris Botanical & Historical Garden|Curaçao

Yesterday my aunt and uncle took me to visit the Dinah Veeris Botanical & Historical Garden here on Curaçao. It is a places that is full of information on different plants and items that were used in the olden days. At the botanical and historical garden it is also possible to purchase coconut oil, sorrel jam and even herbal teas. All of these things are specially made in house by Dinah Veeris.

Upon entering into the garden there is a sign that reads the following below:

Papiamento version| “Tambe den e yerda berde mi a duna bo tur kos.” Genesis 9:3

English version |”And as I gave you the green plants, I gave you everything.” Genesis 9:3

This symbolises how everything on this earth was created with a meaning. Form almost each and every plant an oil can be extracted and used for different ailments and needs. For example coconut oil can be use to cook with, on the hair and even as a body oil. (just to mention some)

A small fee of 10 ANG  (Netherlands Antillean Guilder) can be paid for a walk in tour of the place, guided with a paper explanation. Or it is possible to join groups during the week, three times a day – Monday through Friday.

Seeing that we went on a Saturday we decided to just take a tour for ourselves and look at the garden. These were many plants that have great meanings along with house hold items that were used by those in the olden days.

I believe that anyone coming in search of knowing more about what the plants of the earth can offer use must go there. It is also quite interesting to see the household items that our grandparents and even parents used. The Botanical & Historical Garden that Dinah Veeris has is wonderfully up-kept and deserves a swing by once on Curaçao.

I took a few pictures while on my visit there. Here is a preview of images.

Until next time! 🙂

Tropical Summer Vacation | VLOG 1

Hi Loves!

As promised in my post before here is a YT video on my trip from the Netherlands to Curaçao. In this video I share with you my departure and arrival! I will be sharing pictures and different updates on my social media!

Made it to Curaçao.

Hi there,

Finally I am able to make a blog post…

Since arriving here I have been up and down, round and round! Busy with my family and friends.

I arrived safely in Curaçao, last week Thursday. My flight was scheduled to leave Amsterdam Airport Schiphol at 10:00 a.m. however, it was delayed by about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The airline I flew here with was KLM and like always I loved flying with them. The flight was smooth and the service onboard was perfect as usual.


Photo before leaving the Netherlands…

After passing through all the security checks I made my way to look around and then decided to get something from Starbucks. The chia tea latte was the perfect combination to go along with two homemade sandwiches I brought along.

Some pictures of shops pass the security points…



The one thing when traveling with KLM is that you do not have to worry about being hungry or thirsty. They are always coming around with water, snacks and meals to keep you contented and hydrated. I took some pictures of my snacks and meals.

After being in the air we first got some nuts and water as an ‘Arrival Snack’, then after departure my 1st meal choice was the Pasta Arrabbiata! (I enjoyed it)  Later on we got a ‘Movie Snack’ it was ice-cream and water. (Who doesn’t like ice-cream?) Then the 2nd meal before landing was a light hot meal called Bella Italia. (Yummy) I was super happy with the meal selection and the quality of the food. I must add to it that the presentation of each tray is very fitting to the KLM house-style.

I also love the fact that you can track the flight and see your exact location. The picture below was taken when the airplane was close to arriving in Curaçao.


The feeling of landing in Curaçao is always great, flying over the smashing blue waves and colourful houses is an incredible feeling. This island is one of my many homes away from home, so I am grateful that I can spend a few days with family and friends here on Curaçao.

On the airport present to pick me up was my Aunt along with my Mother. My mother was also ‘toevallig’ by chance also here on a business trip and was able to see me arrive as well. It is a great feeling to be here! I will be collecting some video footage along with picture of the island and sharing that.

Tropical Summer Vacation Loading…

Hi there!

Tomorrow is the day that I leave the Netherlands and go to Curaçao on my first stop in my ‘Tropical Summer Vacation’. Excited? Yes I am! It has been a year since seeing my family. A year since the last time I enjoyed some of the delicious foods as well as feeling the hot sun on my skin.

After spending some time on Curaçao I will be flying to St.Maarten and get a connecting flight to Saba. A direct flight is currently not yet possible from Curaçao to Saba, that being the reason for a short stop in St.Maarten. There I will also be spending quality time with family and friends.

Excited, yes I am! But first today I must do some last rounds of shopping, cleaning up and getting my suitcases packed. Off I go, into the city to get some last stuff.

Ohhh, I also plan on sharing my journey with you by creating blog posts and vlogs showing how beautiful the islands are.
