The downside of high heels


Girls who say high heels never hurt, lie. I’m sure. Eventually after an hour or a long day, (depends on how often you wear them) you will experience pain in the ball of your foot. Normally wedges are easier to wear for hours and hours. My feet especially start to hurt when I have to wait or stand for a couple hours. It’s easier if I walk around. I always knew it had something to do with the weight that is on the ball of your feet. But I didn’t know the exact reason. Well, there is a medical explanation for that.

The Royal National Orthopedic Hospital in Stanmore (London) has the first X-ray that makes 3D images of the foot. They helped a lot of English ladies who suffered from foot problems. Continue reading


Superlooks make-up workshop

superlooks 3I have to admit. I am one of those girls that doesn’t leave the house without make-up. When I was younger I hated it when people saw me without mascara. Nowadays I am a bit more tolerant to what I look like, but I still hate it when people see my face butt naked. Normally I don’t wear foundation or concealer a lot. But I always wear mascara and eyeshadow.

My friend and I love to bid at Vakantie Veilingen. It’s a Dutch online auction website. I love the thrill of bidding on something. The other day my friend saw this great deal for a make up workshop. She bid and got it twice. So we called two other friends, made an appointment and off we went!

Superlooks is located in Diemen (Amsterdam). They give workshops and sell their own make up and brushes. Superlooks is founded by Dorina van der Graaff. She is always loved beauty and fashion. After a couple years working as a fashion-photographer, she decided to start her own make up line. Continue reading

Preservability Sunscreen

zonnecremeI am blessed with beautiful red curls. Typical for a redhead is the white, sensitive skin. Obviously I got that too!
Generally speaking, I love who I am, but if I could change one thing, it would definitely be my skin. I would love to tan a  bit faster and don’t burn that fast. I use gallons of sunscreen every summer!

Most of the time, I use one bottle of sunscreen in 2 1/2 week. I  apply it two/three times a day. I always have to buy a new bottle of sunscreen on my holiday-destination. That’s always very expensive, but absolutely essential, because burning your skin is one of the worst things you can do to your skin. It can increase the risk of melanoma (type of skin cancer).
