While on vacation in Saba I took so many pictures! I thought it would be a great idea to share some of them with. Below you will get to enjoy them, showing the scenery and floral on Saba 🙂
At the ending I have added a few pictures that I took on St.Maarten right before leaving to return back to the Netherlands. I miss being on the island with my family and friends. This summer was so much fun and I enjoyed everyday of it.
I hope my pictures give you a feeling of wanting to visit the islands as well! Let me know what you think about them!!
So I am back with another post about the lovely island that I was raised on – SABA!
There are four beautifully unique is villages on Saba, namely The Bottom, St.John’s, Windwardside and Zion’s Hill.
The capital of the island is The Bottom, there you can find the Government building, the hospital and also the harbour. Moving up the island you get to St.John’s, where all the kids on the island go to both primary and high school. (There’s only one of each on the island. lol.)In the Windwardside you can find a variety of shops and restaurants. Last but not least is Zions’s Hill here is where everyone will experience that “I survived the Saba landing”. Saba’s airport is one of the shortest commercial runways in the world. (It is about 396 meters (1,299 ft) long)
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. 🙂
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.
Maybelline Fit Me (Matte + Poreless) – 355 Coconut
Jordana Forever Flawless – 108 Warm Amber
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer *(can’t see the shade number)
Soon I will be going on my summer vacation! I can not wait *YAYY* But before going on vacation it is important to do some shopping and add those things to your suitcase. I did a bit of shopping and thought I would share with you what I have so far.
I will be going to Curaçao, St.Maarten and Saba, while there I plan on vlogging my daily island life. If you want to get to know more about these islands & see what it has to offer do subscribe to my YT Channel.

Recently I purchased a new brush set from an online cosmetics web-shop called Boozyshop. This online webs-shop has so much wonderful brands and different types of cosmetic products that we will all just love! Adding to the fact that they are located here in the Netherlands, if you place your order before 16:00 you get it the next day!
Boozyshop has recently came out with a new line of brushes. The quality of the brushes are Excellent! The handles of the brushes fit snug in my hands and feel heavy. For me this heavy feeling gives me the perception of the brushed being quality. The bristles are also very soft however, they will allow for maximum coverage and also smooth blending.
Are you looking for a new make-up brush set?! I would recommend you having a look at and get your hands on the one from Boozy Cosmetics. Don’t forget they are also affordable, a set of 14 pieces only cost €39,95.
What I really like about them is that they also take the time out and write a little notes for you. Here is mine 🙂
On Friday May 29th, I finally received my order from Coloured Raine. The order was placed on April 29th and then shipped from the America to the Netherlands on May 5th. The shipping time felt like it took a long time to arrive, but when I made the order I was unaware that it can take about 15 business days to arrive. Adding on top of that once it left the “Departing Processing Centre” you could no longer track it. This is for all international orders, it is no longer trackable unless it is sent via a priority mail.
I was a bit nervous that the package would not arrive but it did! 🙂 YAYYY I am extremely happy with them and can not wait to continue using them.
On my YT Channel I have also made a video on my ‘unboxing’ and first impression of the purchase. Have a look at my video and see what I think about Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paints!!
Here is a preview of what the Matte Lip Paint look like. In the second picture (left to right is Suite Raine, Soul & Mars).
Here you are able to have a look at how they looked on me!
