Sunday road-trip to Sorobon

Today we did a nice little road-trip to take pictures for a special project of Marc (about cars, what else!). So most of the pictures I can’t share yet, but of course Marc took also some pictures of me!

Natural pool Spelonk

Yesterday we did a ‘Sunday-road trip’, like being a tourist on our ‘own’ island Bonaire! We choose to go for Spelonk with the old lighthouse and a natural pool. It was a little overcast so we thought not warm enough for a full dip in the pool, but we took some nice pictures!

And to finish the road trip we went to Seru Largu, one of the higher points on the island of Bonaire!

Burt’s Bees presents!

A guest of us is going to write an e-book about inspirational women on Bonaire and she came today at our place to interview me. She brought some lovely presents for my birthday, thank you so much Jeynaba Touré!

Both of the presents are from the brand Burt’s Bees. Roxanne Quimby started the brand in 1984 in Maine and in 1991 the world famous lip balm was born. They moved from Maine to North Carolina in 1994 and during the years the launched several different lines of products and got awards for green business and products. All the products are made in the USA.

First is the Burt’s Bees BB cream with Noni extract in the colour light/med in a nice 1.7 oz/ 48.1gr package.

The texture is thin, not greasy and doesn’t give that much coverage. For me that’s a good thing because the colour is a little light for my tanned skin, so I really go for the 9 benefits in the cream!

Second is the Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes Kit, with 5 sample size products and 1 full size lip balm.

Ok from the top left round:
– Honey and Grapeseed Hand Cream: A yellowy, fluffy cream that quickly absorbs, smells sweet like honey, nice!
– Almond and Milk Hand Cream: A white, firm, think cream that smells like almonds.
– Hand Salve: White transparent greasy salve, thick and firm, I think perfect for winter issues in the cold 🙂
– Coconut Foot Cream: Wow this is something different then I expected! It’s a brown transparent thick salve that smells like mint and coconut. Not really my type of product.
– Replenishing lip balm with pomegranate oil: Just a nice lip balm, it has a red colour but that doesn’t show on the lips and smell fruity sweet.
– Lemon butter cuticle cream: Transparent white salve that smell like lemon of course! Good stuff, I like it.

All in all, the lipbalm, BB cream and the cuticle cream are my favourites! Thank you so much Jeynaba!

Don’t know if this brand is available on Bonaire, don’t think so but for sure you can find it online!

Growing an Amaryllis

Some people may think this is boring and actually, I remember my grandma was growing them in the past, but I take care about an Amaryllis! Wait, what? Yes, this big red flowers coming out of a flower bulb!

Got my one as a present from my dear friend Annette in the beginning of December last year. Since January 14th I’ve been taking pictures of the growing process. It’s amazing something beautiful as this grows just out of a little bulb!

New hair by Elle Lui Coiffure Bonaire

To get ready for Christmas, and just because I like it actually, I went to my favourite hairdresser and colourist on Bonaire: Ilse, the owner of Elle Lui Coiffure Bonaire. She made a really nice ashy balayage with Keune products and a little trim on the ends. Love the result, thanks dushi!

Photoshoot Bregje Zijlstra!

Yes, I had a photo shoot last week and guess who was the model?? Yes, myself! For me to model it was so long ago, probably already 7-8 years or so, so I was really exited about this! Did some extra moisturizing, fake tanning and healthy eating for 4 days in advance and here are the results! Photographer was Kaming Yan, thanks so much!
