The mail man was my "BESTIE" last week. 
He brought me a package, well more like a present, filled with BVLGARI's sent Mon Jasmin Noir.
And when spraying, my two men (boyfriend & son) followed me the rest of the day, like honey to a bea :-)
I Feel like a 50s Hollywood star, when wearing this L'eau exquise by BVLGARI.
It is fresh and sexy, like every girl should be!

Sisley's Sunnies

 Clever thinking this product.
Especially the fact, it is in a colourless version when you are pale and a tinted version when you have tanned skin.
I am a fan!

CHI curling......

As a hair & make-up artist I find that I have to work with the best tools & products.
Not only to get the best result but also because you have a responsibility towards the models you work with.
So when styling hair, I only work with CHI tools and products, the best there is.
Do you see the difference with the curling iron from around 1930?

Little treasure

This is an English tea set I bought while strolling around the streetmarkets on Queensday here in Amsterdam about 6 years ago.  
I carried it with me the whole day, making sure it did not brake.
It is by the brand Broadhurst Staffordshire Ironstone est 1847 England. It does not exist any more but when you google you can find a lot on Ebay.

This china makes me feel like sophisticated English royal. You know, the ones in those beautiful costume films. 
But not black tea with lemon or with milk...no no no I am a green jasmin tea lover.

What is your favorite tea?

Make-up tutorial, fresh & clean!

My favorite model Roos van Dam (@ Touche Model Management) was sweet enough to lend her face for this little & quick make-up tutorial.

You can choose you own colors in this story. 
Have fun with purple and green for a party or choose a charcoal combined with black for a sexy eye! 

1* light color eyeshadow on moving eyelid
2* darker color in the outer corner of the moving eyelid
3* eyepencil to contour your eye (stop halfway at your bottom eyelid) & fill in your eyebrow
4* lots of mascara & lots of concealer (these two combined are about 4 hours of extra sleep :-)
clean your skin under your eyes (dropped eyeshadow & maybe some mascara) before applying your concealer. 
the whole trick is to end your make-up ritual with your foundation, couse the skin needs to be the cleanest/freshest!
5* apply a moisturizer and the foundation were needed, blush on the apples and use a glowy powder to highlight your skin.
(forehead, bridge of your nose, cheekbones & a bit on the chin)
And smile, that will make you look even more beautiful

 Make sure you blend everything very good. The eyeshadows, but also the foundation, blend it into the skin.
You want to see shadows of light & dark & glowy parts. You do not want to see make-up!

Have fun trying and let me know how it worked out.

Spinach Pancakes

Made some spinach pancakes. They are delicious and are a recipe by Yotam Ottolenghi .
You can eat them as a starter, a side dish or combine with a tomato salad as a main corse.  
Great project for this weekend and surprise your loved-ones with something new and incredibly tasty. 

For the pancakes110 gr self raisning flower,1 tbsp baking powder, 1 egg, 50g unsalted butter melted, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp ground cumin, 150ml milk, spring onions, finely sliced green chillies (optional of-course), finely sliced 250g baby spinach, 1 egg white, olive oil for frying.

For the pancake batter, put the flour, baking powder, egg, butter, salt, cumin and milk in a mixing bowl, and whisk until smooth. Add the onion and chilli to the batter. Put the spinach in a big pan and bake, (I do that without oil) while stirring, until it shrunk. Slice it all in into smaller pieces and add to the pancake batter. Pour a little oil into a heavy frying pan and place on medium-high heat. For each pancake, ladle two to three tablespoons of batter into the pan and press down gently. You should get smallish pancakes, about 7cm in diameter and 1cm thick. Cook for a minute on each side, until a nice golden-green colour. Transfer to a paper towel and repeat, adding oil as needed, until all the mixture is used up. 

I must say that when you read this, it looks like a lot of work. But I think I was done in about 15-20 minutes. 

Bon Apetit,
