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.



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 🙂

Enjoy the pictures!

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

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

INGLOT Curaçao

This is a post that was supposed to be posted about two weeks ago, Opess….

Let’s just get right to it! The day after arriving on Curaçao I went out with my Mother & Aunt to do some shopping. My favourite items to shop for out of the Netherlands are always beauty and cosmetics. I feel that the selection we have back in the Netherlands is not always as large. & I love trying out new brands!

About three years ago I visited the INGLOT branch in Curaçao and bought a white eyeliner. I was happy with the purchase but since then I did not try anything from them. This time I wanted to try and get my hands on some dramatic and sultry eyelashes. But that did not happen because they were all out of the ones that I wanted 🙁 But I thought *hmmmm, why not try something different*.

Soooooo I then found these beautiful blue feather lashes and said “YES, I need those!”

  • Eyelashes/Faux-Cils (Decorated Feather Eyelashes) #37F



The lady that owns the shop was so nice and showed me this amazing Mattifying Pressed Powder. This Powder is amazing & everyone who wears makeup while in sunny/hot places needs this. This powder should be used on top of your make-up. It helps to block out all the oils that forms during the day.

  • Mattifying Pressed Powder #301



I also got his new pigment eye shadow that has a beautiful undertone. I did some research and found out that it is perspiration resistant, contains vitamin E, and is talc-free. Adding to that most AMC pigments are mostly having a matte base combined with glitter or shimmer. This pure pigment eye shadow has a stunning pink and orange duo undertone.

  • AMC (Advanced Makeup Components) | Pure Pigment Eye Shadow
