June Summer Beauty Finds

Sunshine, beach waves in your hair, shades and white wine, who does not love the summer? Summer 2017 has brought me a few beauty discoveries that made this season even better. So get yourself a cocktail, amiga, and lets get this list of beauty finds rolling.

About strippers, dirty dishes and summer jobs.

Money. What a great thing to have. Unfortunately, when I set foot on Amsterdam ground (after spending half a year in New York) I had about 2 euro in my bank account. I blame it on the overpriced avocados, but some may beg to differ. My ex-flatmate for example is convinced I am complete rubbish…

Abducted on a bike-taxi in New York?

The stranger however threw a curve ball “It’s free I promise!” he yelled as we were calmly but determinedly trying to escape the other bike-taxi riders (who were also trying to manipulate us into going for a ride).

Beach vibes: health benefits of hitting the beach

Today it was 34 degrees C in New York (93 F), which meant I was sweating like a whore in a church just by breathing, let alone if I would attempt some minor activity such as getting myself a cold drink.

Carb cycling and counting macros

OROGOLD: peel your skin with gold?

She told me about this skin care product that was supposedly going to make my skin so radiant, even-toned and glowy that I could basically toss my foundation out the window.

New York: Denim and Japan, a match made in heaven?

Noodles, sushi, manga, samurai, the western world has come to fall in love with many things that originate in the oriental Japan. It is not a surprise that the rich Japanese culture has inspired many western fashion designers. From oriental prints and kimono dresses to Harajuku style, we can see elements of Japanese style not…

RXBAR: paleo, healthy and delicious

If you are a busy person who loves snacking (like me), nutrition bars are a great invention. Most nutrition bars in grocery stores contain sugar , dairy, wheat or something else that I rather not have anymore. They are basically candy bars trying to disguise themselves as healthy food. For this reason, RXBARS are one of my favorite recent discoveries!
