Am I a minimalist? What minimalism means to me

This year, Marie Kondo has become extremely popular because of her Netflix show ‘Tidying Up’, and decluttering and minimalism are on a rise as well. YouTube videos of people decluttering their wardrobes and cleaning their houses are everywhere (and to be honest, I really enjoy watching them).

Review: Cantu Shea Butter Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream [English/Dutch]

The first styling product I bought on my curly hair journey was the Cantu Shea Butter Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream, a little over a year ago. The first time I used it, I hated it.

Things I learned in 1 year of blogging (+ little blog update)

Today marks exactly one year since I posted my first blogpost. It was a little welcome post where I said I would post around once a week. Well, needless to say, that didn’t happen.

Trying 30 days of Yoga With Adriene with a chronic illness

Throughout last year I’ve regularly been doing yoga through Yoga With Adriene. Adriene is one of the most famous yoga instructors on YouTube, with over 3 million subscribers. And I can certainly understand why. I stumbled across her videos on YouTube when searching for yoga videos, and I liked her a lot.

Review: Schwarzkopf Nature Moments Argan & Macadamia Oil conditioner [Dutch/English]

De laatste tijd voelde mijn haar erg zacht en slap aan, en de krul was er snel uit. Na een zoektocht op Google kwam ik erachter dat mijn haar waarschijnlijk “over-conditioned” was. Je zou niet verwachten dat het mogelijk is, maar mijn haar was té gehydrateerd. De oplossing: een conditioner met proteïnen gebruiken.
