UPDATE|PLUS 2 NEW VIDEOS.

Hi There Love,

I am back with a little life update and to share with you two new videos that are new and live on my YouTube Channel.

Update//.

It’s officially going to happen. I am graduating this Thursday from my bachelor study of International Communications Management. I should be extremely excited/happy/proud but honestly I am not… I don’t know if its because I have heard so long ago that I passed or that I am dealing with some extremely personal issues that I hope to share in the future or if I am just feeling anxious about what the future has to offer me. But no matter what I will make sure to be there on the day to collect my diploma. Today I am going into the city a bit earlier before work in search for an outfit for this special day and maybe that might just do the trick (honesty I doubt it).

I know that some are still wondering what I am up to career-wise and for now I still have my part-time job in retail at Zara and applying for jobs in the field of what I studied. I was a bit indecisive if I actually want to do that but come on that is where the money is and I did not ‘waste’ all of those years not to at least try the corporate/professional field out. On the side I am looking and planning to study something else in 2017…but you will just have to wait and see what that is.

Last week I came back from visiting a friend in London and I do have some amazing pictures and footage to share with you all beautiful followers. This blog post/video should be up on my channels by Friday this week. Stay tuned!

Have you also struggled with keeping your levels of positivity up? What do you do to keep them flowing?

The two new videos I have share can be seen below.

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! 🙂

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 🙂 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?

CONSISTENCY – LACKING IT!?

CONSISTENCY
/kənˈsɪst(ə)nsi/
noun
The quality of achieving a level of performance which does not vary greatly in quality over time.
‘we know we have the ability at the club—what we need is consistency’

In the blogging/vlogging or online world in general the key to success is being CONSISTENT! Constantly posting, constantly sharing and constantly attracting attention… Making sure to keep the audience up-to-day with what is happening in your field. But then again in anything you dedicate yourself to you need consistency, RIGHT?!!

Hold up, I wanna make this personal so the focus in my case is my daily life (part-time job), blogging and vlogging. & let’s be honest I am not being consistent. In my day-to-day life I am on top of what is going on and tasks that need to be carried out. I like to think of myself as a perfect planner and always using my agenda to structure and follow the days/weeks ahead. Writing down my work schedule and times when I have special events. I always say if I don’t write it down in my agenda then it ain’t happening! (lol)

But I can’t seem to get a hold of always uploading a video on Sunday and always a blog post on Wednesday for instance. So I came to the point where I am allowing myself to just keep Wednesday and Sunday to the days that a blog post or a new YouTube video MUST be shared. And then if something extra is made it can be shared for Friday. It will be seen as a great plus and directly shared (Good idea, right?!)

Like the featured images says “Lack of consistency can bring on a lack of interest.” It doesn’t get more clear and true than that. Exactly the same thing I have noticed with my life however, I am slowly getting myself back up and onto the right way because living how I currently am I feel guilty. My reason for being guilty is that I have so much ideas, I write them down and I film footage but then something triggers something and then something terrible happens. NO INTEREST… No more are those days because I am sticking to my schedule and going to become someone/something because my blogging/vlogging is an adding value to me as person & I want to continue to inspire others. Even if it is only one person in my whole “career”.

So cheers to me making content & jumping back on the ball and being consistent. (Right after my iPhone gets fixed I will be back with some new #insta posts!

Love always & until next post….

Staying in the Netherlands?!

Are you staying in the Netherlands after finishing your studies? But you only went there to study! Aren’t you suppose to be giving back to the island? And your family back home in Saba? Why are you investing so much with your new starter home?

I get those remarks very frequently when I tell people that I am staying in the Netherlands after finishing my study this year. After moving here in  2011 I literally found myself! I found out more about things I am interested in and even my VOICE. It could be that it is just natural to find yourself when you are around 20 years old but after moving here and experiencing life I truly am grateful for making the move to the Netherlands. It has taught me a lot about being organised, punctual and just standing strong in your shoes. The culture here is totally different to back home “Caribbean Style“.

There are some who feel the need to be on the island/county that they originally came from after studying to give back. To give back I mean like literally doing something to show appreciation to the island. In my situation I feel like I am giving back to the island in my own way by staying away for a while. Sounds harsh?! I don’t think so because I am on my own journey to discovering myself, becoming more positive and just loving ME. & I don’t think that me being on the island will help. For some they might argue that I can also learn more about myself and develop being back home. But personally when I look back at when I was there I felt like did not have a voice, maybe because I was only ‘little Sue-Jeen’. But trust me now no one can tell me what to do or just walk over me and do as they please! In my short life there has been some things that I have went through and I promised myself to never be that way. I am going to continue to love and value myself.

When the time is right I will move back home & I will find a way to physically give back to my lovely little island SABA! But for now the Netherlands will be home and I will continue on my journey of finding and loving me! It hurts to be away from family and friends that I hold dear but for now I think that they also understand it is my life and that I am building upon it.

Really and truly I do not know if this is the place is for me to be for the rest of my life. But for now it is perfect & I feel right at home. 🙂

Did you also have huge life changing decisions to make after finishing your studies abroad? What did you choose to do & why? I would love to hear your story, so leave a comment down below!

Personal?

With having my personal blog I feel like I should also be able to talk about other topics which are not only fashion, beauty or hair related. I want to add the flare of my personal life, maybe things I feel or have learned along the way. & this will be my first personal post, I hope you get something out of it.

WHAT IS CURRENTLY GOING ON!

I am now going through the process of almost finishing my bachelor degree in International Communication Management…(very broad right?!) & am I feeling the “pressure” of WHAT’S NEXT! But I am not letting it get to me, well at least trying. (Which is a little difficult) Life is changing and I am going from being a little girl who has no responsibilities to an adult that has it all. There is so much that I now have to take into consideration, do I continue studying?, do I wanna having a stable house?, do I wanna travel a little?, do I wanna get a proper job in the field where I just finished studying?, do I want to explore the things that I like first?, get a job in the field I actually like? THERE ARE JUST SO MANY QUESTIONS!

But I told myself to just follow what feels right at the time and let it flow….what is meant to be will be and if it is suppose to happen it will! I have definitely learned that in this last year! On the positive side I recently got myself my own young starters home which is amazing, I have myself a part-time job at Zara as a Sales Associate, my blog & YouTube channel and I am finishing school. 🙂 I feel like I have the basics to start my official “Adult-Life”! Some might think that ‘Ohhh being a Sales Associate does not do much because you have a bachelor degree’. However, I think that there are so many opportunities in Zara and around me, if I can get the change to grow in Zara itself it would be great & I mean HEY I also have a passion for fashion! What is also helping me stay focused and just flowing is when I look at others that are older & are just so unhappy or annoyed with the work that they do. I really do not want to be that type of person, with a regular 9-5 job at the age of 23 and just so annoyed by 30…

In the next few months I see myself learning more about myself. Working on becoming more positive about life and all its happenings. Building up this blogging/vlogging thing & becoming certified for doing make-up!

Have you/Are you also had this feeling I am having? & How did/are you deal with it?

I would love to hear more. Leave a comment below 🙂
