Hi Loves,

I hope all is well with you! ūüôā

I am just stopping by to share with you that I will be with Entwine Naturalle Couture Nederland at the Pearl Event on Sunday! I will be standing with them as a Brand Specialistd due to the fact that I do know a thing-or-two about the brand.

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…

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″

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.

Tropical Summer Vacation | Saba

My Tropical Summer Vacation is¬†coming to an end soon…

Since I have been on Saba I haven’t been blogging as frequently as I would have liked. This is because I was having a great time with family and friends. I know this is no excuse but I am finally here! For this week I plan on uploading a new blog post every day. The blog post will be about different activities/the daily life on Saba.¬†Seeing that Saba is not so widely known I thought I would share a few fun facts about the island.

Saba Fun Facts

  • Location: Latitude – 17.38 North ~ Longitude – 63.13 West in the northeastern Caribbean Sea.
  • Population: About 1,400.
  • The island surface = 13 square kilometres (5 square miles).
  • Also known as “The Unspoiled Queen”.
  • Great for Hiking & Diving.
  • Only one airline¬†lands on the island. (Windward Island Airways)

Saba is so unique, to the point that it does not always show up on the map. (Amazing right?!) This is a great point but is also a bit of a down fall. Saba has so much to offer to its inhabitants as well as visitors. It is a very small island that is surrounded by endless ocean.

A few weeks ago I went on a day trip with the Dawn II (The Saba Ferry) to St.Maarten. In St.Maarten is where most people from Saba shops for different wholesale/retail daily needs. While on the island for the day I decided to shop for some cosmetics because during my stay on Saba I am doing different people’s makes-up. I got so much new goodies and was extremely contented with them.

It was my first time in a long time being on a boat. But I am so thankful that I took some sea sick tablets before going on board they helped me feel so much better. Two tips I have for anyone that are going on board the boat/ferry is to take sea sick pills before and to keep your head up and do not look down.;) (you will thank me later!) The boat ride to St.Maarten is about an hour and forty five minutes.

Well this is the end of my first blog post. Until the next one, tomorrow ūüôā

Enjoy the pictures!

& leave a comment if you wan to know more about the island or a picture. ūüôā

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 РMonday 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! ūüôā
