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 🙁 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 🙂

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!

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,

Villages on SABA

Hi There!

So I am back with another post about the lovely island that I was raised on – SABA!

There are four beautifully unique is villages on Saba, namely The Bottom, St.John’s, Windwardside and Zion’s Hill.

The capital of the island is The Bottom, there you can find the Government building, the hospital and also the harbour. Moving up the island you get to St.John’s, where all the kids on the island go to both primary and high school. (There’s only one of each on the island. lol.)In the Windwardside you can find a variety of shops and restaurants. Last but not least is Zions’s Hill here is where everyone will experience that “I survived the Saba landing”. Saba’s airport is one of the shortest commercial runways in the world. (It is about 396 meters (1,299 ft) long)

GRWM | Simple Summer Look

Since I am on vacation now I thought it would be a good idea to share with you my Summer go to make-up look. One of the most important things to use in the summer before applying makeup is primer. However, sometimes that great primer itself doesn’t always help with the heat on the islands.

In this new video I share with you my Simple Summer Make-Up Look. This look is simple but the combination of the bright lipstick, Heroine (Matte) from Mac Cosmetics it makes it extremely summer appropriate.



Products Used:

Maybelline Fit Me (Matte + Poreless) – 355 Coconut

Jordana Forever Flawless – 108 Warm Amber

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer *(can’t see the shade number)

Sulfoderm Loose Powder

Sleek Face Contour Kit – Dark

Milani Baked Powder Blush – 07 Fantastico Mauve

Mac Cosmetics Lipstick – Heroine (Matte)

Mac Cosmetics Lip Pencil – Current

L’oreal Telescopic – Black

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! 🙂
