Frederique, what’s your my makeup routine after Accutane (isotretinoin)?

Keune True Beauty


True beauty. What’s your definition of true beauty? To me, true beauty is not about appearances. True beauty comes from the inside. The more you show who you are, the more beautiful you will be. This also goes for a person’s hairstyle. It’s crucial that your hair embraces your personal…

Simplicity is key


Words to live by: Simplicity is key. When it comes to beauty, style and personality I always have these words in mind. A woman’s beauty shouldn’t be shadowed by makeup and outgoing style. I love it when you can truly see her for who she is, in all of her beauty. And…

Thinking back of Italy. My time in Italy seems to be so long ago. Actually it is, I mean, a month has passed already. A month. That’s like over 30 days. I miss Italy. Need to be back soon. Anyway, right after I returned home – which is about a month ago #lol…

vegan beauty products review

All good


All vegan. All good. The commitment to officially say “I’m vegan” was a decision I deliberated about for a long time. In the end, it took me over fifteen years before I completely cut out animal products. Mid July the time was just right and there was no question about it: this…

Caption nails


My confession. Hi, my name is Frederique, and I have a confession to make: I’m a nail polish addict. OK, ‘addict’ might be too strong – but at last count, I have about 50 different bottles of nail polish hanging around in my dressing room. It’s kind of a disorganized…


New hair?


Hair issues. I need your advice. I’ve been wanting to do something different with my hair for quite a while. The thing is, I’ve never colored, bleached, or permed my hair. Virgin hair or something. What’s been on my mind for a couple of weeks now is getting it dyed golden-blonde ombre (as pictured below)….


Connective Tissue Massage


Something different today. Well hello there! Something different today. A couple of weeks ago, I got the chance to get a facial treatment (‘gezichtsbehandeling‘) from Treatwell and went for a Connective Tissue Massage (CTM), better known as a ‘bindweefsel massage’ in Dutch. Because of the good reviews, I chose to get the CTM done…

6 of my favorite perfumes


I am so excited to share my favorite perfumes with you. Fragrance is something very unique that can work on one person but not on another, but you don’t know what will work for you until you try. I always think it is interesting to find out what fragrances others…
