Adventure time with you - Rotterdam




We planned this chill day back in the summer vacation 2013. HAHA, yes summer vacation and we are walking in these clothing outside. Oh well, as you know the weather here in Holland is not so goody-goody.

Prancing down the streets of Rotterdam I was yet again struck by the beauty of detail. It is a weird feeling to describe, but sometimes I just stare into the distance and smile. I feel happy.

We were walking towards the city center. It took us more than a half hour to reach it. We felt energetic enough to not take the subway and I am glad we didn't.

Breathing in the cold air and seeing some greens pop in the streets. It is a pleasant sight.

Choi matches the flowers. Pretty, pretty. When Choi uses that purple coat and puts on her hoodie she reminds me of a cute penguin. Yeah, you should see it, lol.


Haaaaaaaa~

Weird cat figure thing. It is like a robo-cat with scissor wings. He looks sad too.

Cheer him up Choi! ~



Mister Sea gull.





So after walking for more than a hour we arrived back at my place. We started cooking right away. We made quinoa with pasta sauce, tuna and a big bowl of lettuce. Choi made guacamole sauce for the plain doritos. Our taste buds got lucky that day.

Wakame salad. Recommended! 


This was a big cheatday as you see. It was gooooooooood.

Final result of our nice dinner. おいしそうですよ!

I want to thank you! 

I hope you like the pictures as much as I do, haha. Quick post I wanted to share with you guys :). 

Have an amazing day and I hope to see you here soon again!

Hasta la vista bebeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh :3

Super Beblesh Balm BB Triple Function from SKIN79 - Review


Hello there! Today I am doing a review on a BB cream from Skin79.

First some detail about Skin79..
Skin79 is a Korean brand of cosmetics and skincare products. In east Asia it is a well known brand. Now it is making its way to become globally recognized. They use advanced technology and natural products.

This will be the product that I will be reviewing: "Super Beblesh Balm BB Triple Function"

Some detail about the Super + Beblesh Balm BB Triple Functions..
Also known as the Hot Pink BB Cream, because it is packaged in a hot pink colored container. It is a beblesh balm with three functions in one. It has an effectiveness in whitening the skintone, improving the brightness and elasticity of the skin and it protects you from harmful sunrays (such as UV A and B). Furthermore it helps moisturizing and soothing the skin. Not only does it function as a skincare product, it also contains a covering function. It can be used as a base for your make-up, as foundation.


Already I think the package is really awesome and adorable. I like pink, so girly.

This is Skin79's best selling product. It is very popular among the woman in the east Asian countries because of its way that it corrects the skin tone from imperfections, while it also works as a tinted moisturizer. Although people describe it as a tinted moisturizer, it can be seen more as a lighter type of foundation which covers up more than a tinted moisturizer.

Lol, you can see my mobile phone in the reflection of the package. 

This product is very suitable for people with a fair to medium skin color. It oxidizes on your skin to match your skin color even more. Don't forget that this is a product targeted on the woman in Asia. This might mean it does not work for some other ethnics. For example really dark skin toned woman.  

This is how the actual container looks like. Still pretty hot pink!

It has a pumping system. So you put you finger on the top of the container and gently push out the amount of BB cream you want to use.

This is already way to much for my face! You only need a little bit, but for a bit more coverage.. go ahead :).

The substance feels very light indeed. I think the color of the tint is a bit to light for my skin. Let's try!

This is me without make-up, photoshop, layers etc. etc.. My skin has been improving over the months. This summer I had the worst acne I have ever had in my life. I am on Roaccutane right now and it is getting so much better! I will be making a post about my experience with Roaccutane after I am completely done with the medicine ^^.

Continuing..

On my cheeks I have some discoloration from my acne scaring. I heard those will fade away quicker when I am off Roaccutane. But for now.. Let the BB cream do the trick!

I washed my face thoroughly and applied my day creme. On to the next step: applying the BB cream. 

Already I could tell the tint wouldn't really suit my skin tone, but because of its oxidizing effect I was curious for the end result. I dotted the BB cream over my face (like a pro(⊙ヮ⊙)..jkjk). 

Then I kind of massaged it over my face as what I would do with my day or night creme. It didn't felt to sticky or thick.

My skin is way to light right now. Still it covers quite nicely.

I have filled in my eyebrows and put on a little bit of mascara to make it look more decent. (My lips are chapped due to Roaccutane btw. It dries you out X_X)



It feels good on the skin and not clogging at all. This version is for normal to oily skin, so it does its job.

Furthermore it brightens up the skin for sure, but it doesn't cover up every blemish! So this is not the choice if you want a full coverage. Also I don't think it works for pictures taken with flash. Your skin will be super white compared to the rest of your neckline. 

Little experiment..
Next to just applying the BB cream on my face I did a little experiment. I put a bit of the cream on a piece of paper and kept track of it for a certain amount of hours.








This one is taken at 11 p.m. 

Can somebody explain to me what that circle around the BB cream is? Is that oil or moist? What is is?

Pro's:
  • Awesome packaging, girly and pretty
  • Brightens up the skin
  • Covers up a good amount of blemishes
  • Feels light on the skin
Con's:
  • Too light for my skin
  • Irritates my skin a bit at the end of the day (itching)
  • Makes my skin a bit pinkish/grayish 
(These Pro's and Con's are based on my experience with it. It might not apply to you!)

My overall thoughts about this product are positive, not in love with it though. I won't use it as often too. Maybe if I want to have a little bit of a glow and slight coverage I will apply a little amount. 

What are your experiences of this product? Did you ever use it or are you going to?

I hope you liked this review. I will continue making more, so keep checking my blog for new ones ^__^!

Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Abtoberfest!

In my previous post I talked about Blogilates. This post will be about it again. 

Every month there appears a new calender on the website. And it not just a calender, but it is a workout-calender! That sounds pretty interesting to me. I have seen it before and I got curious about it. 

It is a calender with days you do workouts and days you take rest. Everyday is different, as you workout you upper body one day and workout your legs the other etc etc.. 

But why is this any different than another workout calender?
I will tell you why..

Everyday you have a list of workouts. You can find the workouts on youtube on Cassey's channel by searching for the name of the workout for instance. Or you can make it easier for yourself and click on the daily playlists on her website, as you can see down here:



Not only does the calender show what workouts you need to do, it also shows some foods or drinks you should try to make that day! For example on a rest day it can say: Make a clean & lean Quesadilla. --A what?!-- Just as you read it. Cassey makes the most awesome and good tasting recipes. Not only do they taste good, but they are super healthy too. How good is that?!

This is a quesadilla made by her and the recipe with it:

You are going to love it ^^.

She will also ask you to upload a picture from the food that is made to the internet and hashtag (#) it with #blogilates. Then you can also see how many people do it too! You are not alone in the way to making yourself the best you can be :).

Am I going to follow the calender this month?
Hell yeah, I'm going to do it! Today I start with the first day of the October calender which has its main focus on the core of your body. What explains the name Abtoberfest! I see what you did there, Cassey.

The first day starts off with abs and cardio workouts. Also it indicates that it is World Vegetarian Day, so that means no meat today~

Now I am not going to reveal the whole calender to you. The way to see the calender is to go to her website: http://www.blogilates.com/ BAM! 

Join her free newsletter there:


Then you will get a password send to you in her newsletter and you can use that password to get the workout-calender! Horaaaaay  \(@ ̄∇ ̄@)/! 

I will show you my results in the end of the month. I will give you my thoughts about it and some before and after pictures. 

I can't wait to start! Are you doing it too? Or have you already followed a whole calender through? I would love to hear about it.

Have a great day and I hope to see you soon here again! THANK YOU ^__^!
