Good News! + Collab with CocooAndCurls (YouTube Video)

Hi Followers!

I have some really good news to share, I passed my thesis defence! So that means that I am officially going to GRADUATE! Super cool & exciting, right?! I do find so myself!! Even though I am done with my Bachelor study, I am looking forward to starting something new ūüėČ ( 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. On my free days I am now going to dedicate them to being keeping myself busy with the things I love. [Creating content of course] I am extremely looking forward to what is to come. ūüėÄ

So starting off on a good note I created a make-up tutorial in collaboration¬†with CocooAndCurls. We decided to do a make-up look which included something green. Below is the video of what I put together, a make-up look which included¬†a POP of green in the waterline. This went live on Sunday, so check out the video below & don’f forge to give it a thumbs-up. For Cocoo’s video just have a quick look in the description box!

Until next time…much love!

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…

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 Obsession | My DIARY

Hi There,

Ughhhh, last week no obsession was posted! My bad I was so busy and had no time to make a make a post. However, I am sharing with you this obsession of mine. It is my daily, weekly, monthly and yearly obsession: My DIARY! For as long as I know I have always had a diary that I made weekly or daily entries in. When I was back home on Saba I took¬†a look at some of my old entries from 2005 and even earlier, all I could do was laugh. I always wrote about what I did and drew pictures next to it to symbolise that special day ūüôā

I have always had a love for writing and it all started with my personal diaries. Now that I am older and have a lot more responsibilities I use my diary even more. It is used to write down important appointments, up-coming events, my work schedules, dates I have classes on and even recalls of my day. Diaries are just a must for EVERYONE! I know for sure I feel lost if I leave it home, I can not live without it.

I purchased the one that I currently have back in January of this year at V&D, & it is from the brand Paperchase. The great thing about this one (like most) is that it is in English and comes with the weeks of the year listed below, a list of international holidays and important dates. I am in love with the fact that the space given on the dates is also the perfect size.

Seeing that there is only a few more weeks left in this year, I soon need to get my hands on a new diary. Do you know of any¬†places that have trendy and urban diaries? Leave them below & I will for sure be checking them out ūüôā

Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean 2015 Evening

Hi There,

This past Saturday was the¬†Pearls of The Dutch Caribbean 2015 – Gala & Awards Show. As I previously shared I was¬†nominated and in the category of Student. However, I did not win ūüôĀ But on the bright side winning was not the most important aspect of the evening for me because I was contented with¬†the fact that I was nominated!

Seeing that I double booked this day with the¬†Party Over Hair Event¬†I decided to not go and just attend the Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean. I still feel a bit disappointed in myself because I could have mingled & networked with likeminded beauty/fashion enthusiast….ohhh well next time.

The whole evening of the Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean was a great first time experience but I felt that different areas could be developed a little more. But I think that the organisation will ask for feedback and make the right adaptions for the next time.

Ending I would like to congratulate all my fellow nominees and the winning nominees of the Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean!

Enjoy the pictures I took of the evening below ūüôā

Francis Sling is the artist that created all the artwork seen below. I am also thinking about purchasing a work of art from him, they are AMAZINGLY MADE!

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 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. 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!!

Tropical Summer Vacation|Vlog 3

Hi!!

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 ūüôĀ 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 ūüôā

 

Love always.
