Black n’Curly: Natural Hair event in Dakar

For the first time, I went to a natural hair event orgainized by Black n’Curly in Senegal! How exciting?! As many of you know, I am natural. Also, I find it important that black women get more educated about their hair. Furthermore, naturals should also contribute to the representation of black women and girls. Also, children should not suffer due to ignorance, in terms of perms, no edges and forever having a tiny ponytail lol. All in all, I definitely wanted to see how many naturals would come, and exchange with them. Just to let them know that I’m here too! Let’s get into this Black n’Curly hair event! (more…)

LuLu Home Interior & Café

    A while ago, I shared with you Lyvv Cosmetics’ launch at Lulu Home Interior & Café. Before the launch, I met up with my good friend Audrey and she lunched and we took pictures at Lulu.

Not only is Lulu known for their food, but also the home interior items that they offer.  Let’s get to this interesting place with cute interior items, shall we?!

Today, I’m raising the bar, I’m going to share with you something I haven’t done yet… Can I get a drum roll? *insert drum roll* I’m going to share with you a Summer look with my favorite Lyvv cosmetic product!

However, I thought that it was a nice, casual look that would be light enough to endure this heat. Let’s get into the Summer look tutorial I created for you guys! (more…)

Lyvv cosmetics lip swatch with Senegalese Twisted & friends

In my last post, you got an introduction to Lyvv cosmetics and their views on beauty. The second video I made for Lyvv is a Lyvv cosmetics lip swatch. So, I decided to not only test three Lyvv lip colors on myself, but also on people in my surrounding with different skin shades. How exciting right? Yes, for me it was. Especially since it was the first time I got to see how Lyvv looked on others. Do you want to find out how I did it? Keep on reading and check out the video :). (more…)

An introduction to Lyvv cosmetics & beauty values w/ Senegalese Twisted

ELITE Senegal 2018: ELITE Fashion competition

Last week, I attended and assisted during the program of my friend Fadieye called ELITE Senegal 2018. ELITE is an acronym and stands for Entrepreneurship, Leadership and IT Exchange. During one week, we had over 40 girls that study sewing at CAIF and gave them workshops and trainings in entrepreneurship and leadership. I told you in the last post: Twisted Talent designer, that that was it for ELITE Senegal 2018. I’m not sorry, but I still have some things to share with you: THE STUDENTS!

SNTWSTD x Kiko Milano

Hi everyone!

SNTWSTD x Kiko Milano (lipgloss pencil 11)

I am back with another post and this post we all about: Kiko Milano. I really love Kiko and the first time I went to Kiko was in 2014 in Paris, which I wrote in my Paris 2014 haul. Then, when I lived in Berlin, I went to Kiko a lot, due to the fact that there were so many in Berlin. Most larger malls had at least two stores, that is why I got this severe Kiko addiction lol. Anyways, in this post, I want to share with you my latest purchases from Kiko. In Holland, we have two Kiko stores in Amsterdam. One at Amsterdam Centraal and one in the Kalverstraat. I, however, live in Almere and we have a Kiko too! That is how my addiction to Kiko will continue :).
