WINTER WASH & GO ft. MIXED CHICKS & SHEADO

NEW VIDEO.

My updated Wash & Go that I have been using this winter. Even though it is much colder I still like to do a Wash & Go routine, I have been also reaching for the Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner as my preferred styler and sealing in the moisture with only some Liquid Gold HairButter from Sheado. My hair has been reacting very well to this combination. I think my recent hair cut has a lot to do with my curls and products doing well in my hair. My hair was shaped at the SheaDo salon in The Hague. I loved the end result because my hair was in dire need of a trim.

MY 2nd TIME (FULL BRAZILIAN WAX)

This might be TMI (Too Much Information) for some but hey we are all adults here right?… & by the way this is a lifestyle blog! ūüôā

Now let’s start the conversation about my 1st and 2nd time having the full Brazilian wax done. I experienced my first time back in July and my second time just this week! I feel super proud of myself because I talked about having a full Brazilian wax done for so long. But like most I am so embarrassed/ashamed/terrified even when just thinking that I have to lay down on a bed and someone if literally right up into well onto and touching my penny (lol, that was the name I called ‘it’ my¬†vajayjay/vagina since young) with a bright light and probably criticising how mines look.

Even now while writing this I feel like ‘Girl you survived’. And I am getting over it because the¬†fact of the matter is that it is their job¬†and they have probably done this 500 times before you and they are just doing their job.

Let’s talk about the pain, comparing the two times I believe that it did get better. The first time of course it was a bit painful however, it is not a pain that lasts all day, where your penny ūüôā just feels like it is burning or just an unnatural. When the wax is applied they allow it to dry and then gently pull. After the wax is completely pulled of they apply pressure to the spot and then instantly or almost instantly it is relieved. For me this was done for the whole thing & for my second time I dared to get the back door also done! (lol are you also laughing while reading this?) The back door was so much easier and faster, she used the general wax and then applied the one that is used for the smaller hair.

One funny¬†part for me was the way in which you lay down for the front and the back. For the front you are on your back and your under feet are touching, so that she can get up in there. For the back you have to lay on your belly and hold your butt cheeks so that they don’t stick together! (lol, just imagine that)

I would say that a full waxing session takes about 30-45 minutes and it goes by so fast. It is not awkward while laying there, well at least not for me. I make sure not to look at what she is doing and just keep my head up, hands together and talk. Talking about yourself and sharing stories in general like any other salon experience. & the finally the final result is amazing! Everything is super soft for days and you are instantly beach ready.

The salon I visited is located in The Hague and so far I am super happy with their service. It is super clean and they are so professional.

Have you though about getting the full Brazilian done? What was you biggest fear? What did you think about it?

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‚ĄĘ¬†– Leave-In Conditioning Cr√®me (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‚ĄĘ. 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‚ĄĘ product and paying only¬†‚ā¨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 ūüėČ

Love always,

Sue-Jeen.

Preventing damaged hair, split ends, dry or frizzy hair can sometimes be a job in its self but with the help of Entwine Naturalle Couture products this task becomes past time.

I love the way that they express there brand and products. The quote below was taken directly from Entwine Couture’s website.

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.
