Sustainable Choices: Weleda Skincare

In between working my new job and finishing my thesis proposal my skin has been acting up. For the first time in 23 years I have break-outs. While I love my new job and I should have more free time now that my classes are over, but still I experience stress. Which is why great…

Hoe Vier Jij de Vrijheid (Dutch)

Before you get on reading this post. I have written this blog in my native language, Dutch, because it is about the 5th of May. The day my country was liberated from the German army. So I apologize in advance, however, the next post will be in English again. Vrij•heid, een woord met twee lettergrepen…

Why Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame Failed Me as a Woman

I remember being taken to see my first Marvel film during my stay in Alabama back in 2012. I never imaged myself to be the type of person who would like superhero movies, but after seeing the first Avengers movie I was pretty much sold and soon thereafter started keeping up with the Marvel Cinematic…

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea: High Tides & Good Vibes

Last year when a good friend of mine went to the US I asked her to get me some Tarte Cosmetics products. While I was not a big fan of their famous Shapetape, the Tartelette in Bloom palette soon became one of my favourites. So when I was in France a few weeks back and…

Sustainable Choices: Chilly’s Bottles

I have always believed that Instagram marketing is a thing because of people like me. Somehow the algorithm figures out how to trigger my shopping urges and within no time I find myself scrolling some website selling overpriced stuff. I am well aware that this is how cookies work and over the past year I have…

Wednesday Reviews: Too Faced Sugar Cookie

December is a month filled with holidays, which means that a lot of people have to start thinking about wishlists and gift ideas, while also making sure that they do not forget to get their great-uncle a present as well. I do not know about you but ever since I have hit my twenties every…

Sustainable Choices: Lush Shoplog

Ever since I started my journey of living a more sustainable life there have been a lot of different aspects that I have been considering. One of my first moves was getting rid of my regular shampoo (after I finished the bottles of course, because wasting product is still wasteful) and shifting to Lush shampoo bars….

Urban Decay: Born to Run

One of the most memorable things I got to experience while I lived in the United States has to be Black Friday. Not because it was one of my best memories, but it is one that surprised me the most. Taking a collective nap after dinner, layering up the number of garments I was wearing…

The Girl Who No Longer Could

I believe it was at a party nearing the end of June, my board year was coming to an end, when I ran into an acquaintance. You know the drill, you ask how someone is and they return the question. However this time, before I got the chance to answer he said something along the…

Shoplog: Mini Tarte Spree

Every so often I come across a beauty brand which looks absolutely lovely but for some reason is not available in the Netherlands. A few years back Sephora left the Netherlands to become a more international oriented company (I never really understood the grounds of this argument but oh well). So sadly one of the…
