Books I’m reading in September

Recently, I have found myself going to the library more and more again. One, because my home gets insanely hot during summer. I’m talking about oven hot; take a shower and sweat two seconds later hot; channel your inner sloth hot. You get my point as to how hot it was getting. And second, well…Because libraries and bookstores have always been my happy place. At first, I didn’t want to get library membership because it’s another subscription along with the endless streaming services we pay for nowadays. Plus, I have so many books at home I have yet to read (Lord knows when I will ever finish those). But since I end up going to the library and reading the books there anyway, I thought maybe if I get a membership, I will actually finish these borrowed books as there’s a deadline. You know how some people need a little sense of urgency to get things done…Me. And so, with my new membership, I have recently borrowed five books that I’m going to be reading …

My picks: Black Friday

Even if you’re not living in the States where they celebrate Thanksgiving, we still get to enjoy the perks called Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The two days where many stores have so many discounts, it feels like Christmas has come early! Some stores are even so generous, they have already started their sale, which lasts till Monday 2nd. Being the discount lover that I am, I have already got a couple of items in mind that I’m ready to cop. Some of them already are on sale…And some I’m just hoping they’ll go for sale on Friday. Accessorize me, dahling Recently I haven’t been into clothing as much as I am into accessories. Specifically thick and layers of necklaces and oversized earrings. Though, I’ve always been a wearer of big earrings. I believe that the clothing I already own can get a whole different look with some dope jewelry. So, why not get some while they’re on sale? A little bit of Juvia’s Place I bought some products during summer and the products had …

Photodiary: Getaway as a unicorn pt. 3

I’ll be taking you to one of the most memorable days of my life: my sister’s wedding, where I held my first public speech, my niece stole the show and I caught the bouquet (YES BIH). Mind you, today it’s the two-month anniversary of her wedding! Also we’re going sailing with my best friend, going BTS of my beloved partner in crime’s photoshoot and you’re gonna meet some of my family members. 

Photo Diary: My 10-day getaway pt. 1

Some may have already seen some photos go by on Instagram, but for those who didn’t; I have just returned from my 10-day getaway. My main reason for this little trip was to attend International Swimwear Fashion Week(end) that took place March 10-13 on no other than my lovely home island Curaçao. You understand that this was the perfect excuse to combine my  trip to Curaçao with a visit to my mother on Bonaire. If you’re still reading, that means you’re certainly interested in knowing how I spent my days. Join me as I look back at my little touristic journey on Bonaire! Day 1 To tourists this may seem like some yucky green soup with meat and other unknown things floating around. But to me and many other Antilleans this soup called “Jambo” aka ocra soup is LIFE.  I can’t cook this yummy goo and my mom ain’t in Holland often enough for me to enjoy it as much as I’d want to, so I was beyond filled with joy when they took me to a local restaurant …
