I am a beauty & music loving language nut come fashion victim, who has spent the past 10 or so years teaching English (and a little bit of Dutch) at both secondary school as well as at higher education levels. I graduated for the Research Master in Communication Sciences from Tilburg University in 2013 and hold an MA in English Language and Literature as well as an MA in English language education.

This blog is about everything my heart desires outside of work and teaching and focuses on beauty, fashion, music and lifestyle related topics. I post new blogs every day. My current blog schedule is:

  • Beauty: Monday, Wednesday & Saturday
  • Food: Tuesday
  • Fashion: Friday
  • Lifestyle: Sunday
  • Miscellaneous: Thursday (Nails, Music and Books alternate on Thursdays)

I’ve been blogging on this page since September 2010 and have enjoyed every minute of it so far. I am by no means a pro and started this blog because I had a desire to write. I didn’t have a plan, nor any idea of how to do this. I just started writing and in the course of 5+ years, this is what has taken shape. I try to make a video at least once a month, as well as a lookbook and a post on my music favorites. My wishes regarding this blog are to keep it going for as long as possible. I am happy with every view and comment I get, but it has pleased me to see this blog pass 10,000 unique visitors per month since the start of this year and keeping up the numbers ever since.

My main hobbies are dancing, going to the gym (I do a bit of cardio and strength training with some yoga added to the mix), blogging, shopping, cooking, reading, watching TV series & movies, and traveling. I listen to more music than the average human being and read as much as I can. I love going to live concerts and I love discovering new bands, artists and music. Be it old or new, if the music is unknown to me, I love finding it, listening to it and going to a show if possible.

I love to learn new things. Whether it’s through school, every day life or the people I meet: I have a hunger for knowledge on a wide variety of subjects. I love hanging out with friends and family. I like to visit museums, especially exhibitions on modern art and fashion. But I am also a homebody. I love being at home, cuddled up on the couch with a big mug of my favorite tea. It’s when I am by myself that I fully recharge my battery and get the energy to live this thing called life.

I blog about all of my different interests, but some more than others. From which songs I dig most, to beauty product reviews, to an overview of what I have been eating, to outfit posts: I blog about anything that pops into my head and I try to keep things fresh by coming up with new ideas from time to time. All that rests is wishing you an enjoyable and interesting read! Feel free to browse around and leave a comment. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. My contact information can be found under the contact tab.

  2. Hoi,

    Op beautylab.nl heb je gereageerd interesse te hebben in mijn Jeffrey campbell lita’s.
    Ze vakken daadwerkelijk als een maat 37 en heb ze helaas maar 1x gedragen.
    Door mijn onverwachte voetoperatie moet ik een jaar revalideren en is de kans klein ooit nog hakken te kunnen dragen.
    Met pijn in mijn hart moet ik dus afscheid nemen van deze geweldige schoenen.
    ik heb eventueel foto’s voor je, dus als je me eventjes mailt zal ik ze naar je sturen!

    Groetjes Noor

  3. Hi! I came across your blog while looking for information on MAC cosmetics in The Netherlands. I am wondering if you can give me some advice. I am looking for a makeup artist in The Hague (preferably Scheveningen). Can you recommend anyone?
    Thank you!

  4. Heya! 🙂 Stumbled across your blog via a search for reviews, but I really like this “About” page. It feels open and honest, and it makes you sound like a very likeable person. It’s cool that you’re interested in things so diverse and want to share your experiences! I also appreciate your writing style, comes across as a good mix between spontaneous writing and well-thought-out skill. Cheers and have a great day! ~vanilla chamomile
