Review Invati Advanced products

Review: Invati Advanced 3-step system by Aveda


Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! ♡Let’s talk about hair today. Or actually, about losing hair. Cause everyone loses hair. It happens during your morning shower, while you’re giving your hair a quick brush or shaking it up – it’s completely normal to lose hair. On average, we all lose about 100 hairs a…

Sisley phyto sourcils eye brow pencil

Review: Phyto Sourcils brow products by Sisley


Today we’re talking about brows. In the last few years I’ve noticed eye brows became more and more of a thing. It’s an aspect of the face we all pay much attention to these days. And so do I. I love the way a good brow gives your face so much…

Review: lob hair style by Aveda – Lilou at Hudson’s Bay


Hej loves! How are you all? As I’m laying down on the sofa, being pretty exhausted from yet another busy week, I wanted to share my latest hair methamorphse with you guys! You close followers from the gram (Instagram: @fablefrique), might have seen that I went to the Aveda hair salon in…

Aveda Texture Tonic

Effortlessly undone hair


It’s no secret that when it comes to hair I like it au natural. That’s just how I roll. The only issue with my natural waves is the lack of texture they have. Often my hair looks pretty lively and bouncy when I leave the house. But when I’m out and…

Everything about the human body is truly amazing in my opinion, and our eyes are no different. We often think of our eyes as a way to see outward. They look ahead of where we are going and communicate back to the rest of our body as to how to…

treatment Accutane Isotretinoin

Real talk: acne treatment with Accutane (Isotretinoin)


Almost everyone suffers from spots occasionally. But for some of us, it goes further than that. Sometimes much further. Personally, I know everything about it. From the age of 13 I’ve been struggling with genetically linked cystic acne. It’s hard to describe in words how much my these stupid skin imperfections…

Sisley Black Rose skincare

Review: Sisley Black Rose skincare


Busy days at work, a lack of sleep and a trillion other stress factors in our daily lives take a toll on many of us. Including myself. To me personally, this results in fatigue in both my body as well as the appearance of my skin. A dull or a…

Sisley Izia Eau de Parfum

Review: Sisley Izia Eau de Parfum


As you might know, I have a weak spot for Sisley Paris. It’s a very luxurious brand with a unique experience and allure. I have a number of Sisley products in my possession and every time I use them, I know why I own them. Today I’m telling you guys…

Day in a life of Frederique Bos (La Mer beauty treatment)

Review: My experience with La Mer skincare


Well I don’t know about you, but I dislike wearing makeup when I’m at home. My home is supposed to be the place where I feel at ease with myself. And there’s just something about a full face that makes me feel uncomfortable. Thus, chances are if you’re ringing my door bell on…

Routine: Get up and glow Estee Lauder


If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’ve attended many blogger related events over the years. You might remember that one event with Estée Lauder and one of the biggest Dutch beauty bloggers named Masha Feoktistova, also known as Beautygloss. This event was an introduction on how…

moisturizer Frank Body review

Review: Everyday Moisturiser


There’s no such thing as Instagram. It’s packed with great fashion individuals, sharing their stories through pictures. I’m completely guilty of refreshing my feed way too much. And you? Some time ago I got across this skin care brand called Frank Body. I really liked their catchy Instagram page and…

Review: Sisley Paris phyto-lip & eye twists

Review Frank Body

Review: Frank Body Original Body Scrub


From an early age I’ve been deeply interested in beauty and skin care. It was my mom, introducing me to her daily skin care routine that first sparked this interest. I can always remember the feeling of wanting to know how to take care of my skin, why you should…

SkinCeuticals review

Review: SkinCeuticals


Let’s talk about skincare once again. Now that I’m in my late 20s and turning 28 this Wednesday (oh my!), I’m focusing more and more on skincare rather than make-up. I believe investing in great skincare is worth so much more the money than spending loads on cosmetics to cover…

Sisley skincare routine

Review: Sisley skin care routine


Breakouts don’t only happen to teenagers. After having much trouble with acne during my puberty, acne hit me again in my mid-20s. To some extent it was due to my weight gain, which was part of my eating disorder recovery. But my genes played a big role too. My mother struggled with…

Aveda NY

Review: Facial contouring with hair coloring


Facial contouring with makeup is not a new kid on the block. Highlighting, strobing, every girl who loves beauty knows exactly what I’m talking about. Facial contouring with hair coloring – ‘Eclipting‘ – however is a new thing, if you ask me. When Aveda asked me to come over to NYC…

Behind the scenes at Hellessy NYFW with Aveda


While I’m sipping on my Cold Brew in Starbucks, grande of course, and I’m chatting to some strangers – seriously, an Italian guy just got me this drink, like whut? – I have about an hour left for my next show at NYFW. After Hellessy in Pier 59 Studios it’s…


Hello New York! <3


I’m in New York! The big city that’ll be my home from September 2017 on. It’s so good to be here and experience the city again before moving here. Thanks to the team of Aveda Benelux for inviting me to come over for New York Fashion Week SS’17. I’ll be…

Review: Pivoine Sublime By L’Occitane (+ giveaway)


Hej you! As you might know by now, I love flowers. Especially peonies. To me peonies are one of the most lush flowers to have in the house, and until a year ago I wasn’t aware the peony floral extract is also used as an ingredient in skin care. I mean,…

cornrows for summer 2016

Cornrows by LOD


Although I like the way my hair is au naturel, I wanted to get something with various braids done. Not for forever – don’t get me wrong – just something that I could leave in for a few days. As might read in my previous posts (1, 2) I’m super…

Cornrows for summer


My favorite hair trend as of lately, a.k.a. summer 2016? Cornrows! You’ve probably spotted them on many Pinterest pages already and OH MY.. I just can’t let go of my current obsession with cornrows, other braids, plaits, fishtails et cetera. Since I’m not the greatest hair hero in doing those things…

Happy new hair


My hair. Here’s the story.. I wanted a change in my life in terms of my hair. Not a major change, but I wanted to give my hair a true boost. To give it more volume, to give it more shape, to give it more interest, I wanted something different,…

Review: best moisturizers under 40 euros


What are the best moisturizers under 40 euros? Well, even though I’m by no means a beauty guru, I do have a long experience with both not investing as well as investing in moisturizers. As I told you earlier on, I’m a happy user of microdermabrasion. It’s incredibly important to…
