HAPPY NEW YEAR.

H A P P Y  N E W  Y E A R.  2017

I wish the person that is reading this nothing but the best and may all your wishes come to reality. That all the good karma you put out into this world finds its way right back to you, be it in one day or one month. Positivity!

2016 has flown by so fast and so much has happened in my life over the year. There has been many high points and very low points in my 2016. At the beginning of the year I found out someone in my family had cancer which honestly hit me really hard and had me feel really sad about the whole situation. (Thankfully they are doing much better now) Then I got my very 1st fully OWN apartment (I am renting not bought), furnished and did everything with my own money. (INDEPENDENT WOMAN) I must say I am super proud of myself for that. I handed in my thesis and found out I failed it on the 1st try. (Was super down again about that) After I found out my Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle were coming to visit me in the Netherlands. (SUPER HAPPY moment) Redoing my thesis and then PASSING! (Proud moment) Then officially graduating from my bachelor study! (Phewwww) Those were the biggest/most highlighted moments from my 2016.

New Year….New Goals?

Of course! Ever year I make goals and keep them for myself. I don’t really share them with people because I feel like not everyone you share your goals with will support you. So to be safe just keep them to yourself and push to achieve them. I have my list of goals and hopefully by the end of 2017 I can mark off a few that I achieved. 🙂

One thing that I have noticed about myself is that I don’t celebrate the small or big moments enough. This year I will be working on celebrating every moment and actually inhaling all that is happening. Taking the time to process the happening. Along with that I want to continue to work on myself mentally. Developing more personally on a level and loving me MORE!

For my blogging and vlogging life I want to put myself on a schedule of a blog post every Wednesday and video every Sunday. I hope that this is something I can stick with because sometimes I allow other things to come in place of doing the things I have a passion for.

There is so much in life to be grateful for and I just hope that in 2017 I can practice what I preach. Giving GOOD VIBES ONLY!

Let’s Catch Up!

Hi Lovely People,

I have been on the down low for a few weeks now. That is because I have been feeling so low mentally and then being hit with a flu that lasted about 1 month (ughh). I am currently still a bit stuffy but my energy levels have risen so much. Mental issues are just not talked about and seem to be a bit taboo. No one talks about it or even if they do, don’t know how to address the topic. However, I have been seeking help and what I have learned is that I need to keep myself busy with people and things. For the past few weeks even though I have been feeling very ill with the flu and a bit down I started doing more stuff with friends and trying to stay a bit busy. Not always does it work out but for the most part I have been so much more contented!

Not to just create this entire blog post about my mental issues but also about what I have been up to and what’s on my mind. For the past weeks it has been very entertaining to be cooking, trying out new foods and meeting up with friends for drinks or just to catch up. Like just last-night I went out to have typical Eritrean/Ethiopian food and it was very tasty. I inserted some pictures below so you can see what I ate, on the side we had exotic beer called Mongozo and got the coconut and mango flavours. They were amazing, nothing like your typical beer!

For the coming weeks I want to finish editing my London Haul which I filmed after I came back from London. Sharing so many new goodies I got myself while I was there. And also a fast make-up look that I filmed last night before going out. There is so many ideas I have but I just need to stop deliberating, get off my lazy butt and DO IT! Until the next post which I hope will not be too far from now….

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.

 Full Brazillian = € 36,50 LadyWax The Hague

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

Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit Swatches On Dark Skin | SJ’s Obsessions

Finally got my hands on the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits! (yayyy)

There has been so much talk in the online beauty world about how great, terrible, fabulous and over-priced the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits are. I have never been a fan of the Kardashian’s or anything that regards their family however, I am a sucker from a great lippie or a long-lasting matte lipstick.

My Aunt and I were very interested in trying them for ourselves, so she tried really hard to make an order because those products always get bought/sold-out within 10 minutes (or so it feels like). But lucky her she got to order five different shades. The shades that were captured were:

Koko K

Candy K

Posie K 

22

True Brown K

Each Lip Kit costs $29 and the talk on the internet was that they are over priced but in my opinion they are affordable. You can spend about $33.50 at MAC Cosmetics for a lipstick and lip pencil. Maybe Kylie Cosmetics is new to the market but I was all in for giving it a try. In my opinion I like the formula that the liquid lipsticks have, they have a sort of vanilla/strawberry smell, the texture is smooth, moveable and buildable. For the lip liners they are very creamy and can be worn alone.

Pros: (Matte Liquid Lipstick – Long-Lasting, Highly-Pigmented, Smells Great) (Lip Liner – Creamy, Good Quality)

Cons: (Matte Liquid Lipstick & Lip Liner – Drying, Cheaper Similar Dupes Available)

There are some dupes out there from a more affordable brand called ColourPop they have a wide lovely array of shades and finishes to choose from. But in concluding my blog post of the Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick and Lip Liner – Lip Kits  I would advise any lip product lover to get their hands on at least one unique shade.

Do you have any of the Kylie Cosmetics products? What are your thoughts on them? And if you don’t have any, which are you trying to get your hands on?

ENTWINE NATURALLE COUTURE @PEARLEVENT

This past Sunday I was at the Pearl Event with Entwine Naturalle Couture. I stood with them as a ‘Brand Specialist’ and I must say I love doing this because I get to share the natural hair product’s information with others. I also get to meet so many different beautiful people.

During my conversations with the visiter I felt like my energy was running quite low. I was so tired from working about 8hrs the pervious day and being busy all week. However, I tried to do my best with interacting and asking the booth visitors if they heard or knew the product, shared information on how they assists with hydration and shared the specials we were offering at the event.

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…

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 🙁 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.
