Dumb people around us

Dear readers,IMG_9013

I am so pissed, literally I am so annoyed. So here’s the thing. In my last post I wrote that the weather in Holland was horrible, well it’s now 30 degrees outside. Yeey. But there is one thing: I am really insecure about my body. I will never and I mean never be comfortable in my bikini. But today I was sorta comfortable in wearing shorts to school.

But it seems like other people don’t mind that somebody can feel uncomfortable in their own skin. Now I’ve got to say it, I am overweighted, I know that. And I’m working on it, I really am (more about that in the future). But I don’t need to hear that from others. I don’t need to hear someone, someone who doesn’t even know me, say ‘fat’ when I walk across them. That just upsets me you know?

The dummest thing is, that person doesn’t even know me. I feel like that’s something that people need to remind themselves of: you never truly know a person. You (almost) never know the whole story, what they are going through. And she mumbled it, she didn’t even have the courage to just say it out loud, in my face. Probably because I would have punched her in her face. Wait, that isn’t the dummest thing. The dummest thing is that I let it get to me. Is it really that normal that I get upset? Is it normal that I almost ran to the bathroom and just cried? Of course, that is the story you always hear, but it’s not normal.

Now this is kinda a cliché, but my name, Fabienne, starts with fab. So I like to call myself fabulous, to give me confidence. When I was sitting on that toilet, I was giving myself a little pep talk. “Who gives a f*ck what that b*tch think.” “So what? I’m f*cking fabulous!” that sorta things. This helped me throughout the day thankfully, but not without putting on a mask.

But I am who I am, so I want to think of positive things only. So if a b*tch calls me fat, I just see it as motivation. You’ve got to prove people wrong, prove people that you are better, better than them even. I feel like giving yourself that little pep talk when you are down is very important. I helps for the emotion eaters, drinkers or users. So I just deal with it that way.

Maybe if one of you reading this is harming yourself in any way possible, letting your emotions do that to you. I hope that you maybe try the pep talk thingie out and hopefully stop hurting yourself with either food, alcohol, drugs or razors. Because you are worth it, you are awesome and the world needs your awesomeness.

Thank you all for reading this and thank you for letting me rant about something.

With much love,


My every day make up

Hello everyone!IMG_8149

As you read from the title, this is a beauty post. Jep, my first beauty post. In this post I am going to talk through all the make up that I use on a daily basis. So let’s get started!

I want my make up to be fresh, to look natural. But I still want every thing needed covered. Also, the ‘masterpiece’ needs to stay put all day. So to start of I use the Nivea Men Aftershave balsem sensitive. Thank you nikkietutourials for giving me this tip.

The first thing I do after priming is covering the worst bits on my face. This means my dark circles and the worst spots. For this I use the Kiko full coverage concealer. Now for foundation I use one that is actually not available worldwide but only in Holland. We have a store called Douglas where I buy the ultralight foundation. This foundation is just really a lightweight foundation with not so much coverage but enough to hide. I first used the foundation from Yves Saint Laurent the Encre De Peau. But this was a bit expensive for me. I apply my foundation with the Yves Saint Laurent Perfecting polisher brush. After foundation I conceal AGAIN, yeah I need it alright. I use the Smashbox camera ready bb cream eyes. I put this on my under eye area and any other blemishes/spots.

Now to not make you look greasy all day, I apply the Clinique superpowder double face makeup. After that, contour. I use the Benefit Hoola bronzing & countouring brush to apply the bronzing shade from the Rimmel Londen sculpting palette from Kate Moss. I’m not an expert in countour so I can’t help you there. I use the same brush and the blush shade from the same palette for blush. If any of this is too harsh I take a big brush with some face powder and go over it.

The thing I am most confident about definitely are my eyes. First I use the Collistar eyebrchanel_202tissecamelia002ow pencil on my waterline to open up my eyes. The next thing depends on my mood. If I want more of a soft look I use the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eye Shadow Palette in the shade 202 Tissé Camélia and then the pink shade from the palette. OR I use the Catrice cosmetics Chocolate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette to create a more bronzed look. From this palette I use the glitter shade in the inner corner of my eyes.

Now I always get really nice compliments about my eyebrows. But all I do is plug them the right way and in the morning all I do is brush them into place with either an old mascara of an eyebrow brush. I curl the lashes after that and apply the mascara They’re real from Benefit. I have a certain way to apply my mascara which is that I always use more on the outside of my eyes to make them more ‘flirty’. I don’t really put lots of lip product on, usually just a lip balm because I think that without lipstick or so it really makes it seem natural. But every once in a while a lipsticks completes the look.

The very last thing is totally optional, but if I want it to feel more fresh I spray the Avène Thermal Spring Water. And that’s it! Those are the things that I do most of the days. This sure was a lot to write so if you made it this far, good job!

I hope seeing you on the next one, please let me know what you want to see.

With much love,


The paradise called Samos


The rain is pouring outside as I’m writing this, since I’m back home in Holland. So I’m just going to close the curtains, put the heater on and write this post. The past two weeks I was on the beautiful island called Samos, this is an island in Greece near Turkey (seriously you could swim to Turkey is you wanted to). I had so much fun and it truly is my paradise as you read from the title. Now this blogpost is going to be long because I am going to talk lots and lots about my holiday on Samos. Get ready.

I must warn you, most of the island is mountains, so get your stomach ready for those roads and be carefull. But that is the only thing about Samos that I don’t like. Most people don’t want to go to Greece right now for summer. They say that you can not withdraw any money and that the refugees are ruining  your holiday. Now let me tell you, we didn’t have any of these problems. You can still get cash from the bank and I didn’t see 1 refugee the entire two weeks. The media makes it such a bigger problem. This frustrates me.

Now can I tell you about the beach? OMG I loved it! Now I am a person who can just lay on the beach for the entire day. Not that I’m capable of lying down a whole day, but every now and then a swim and after that sun. Per-fect. Now there were three beaches which were my absolute favorite. Now I must tell you that I am more of a person who likes a stone beach rather than a sand beach, so these three are stone beaches. The sea has this beautiful aqua colour and has a really nice temperature.

The first beach is on the south of the island called Limnionas beach. This beach is more like a bay, we went to this beach a lot just because it was really pleasant. We rented beds for a day and had the nicest time. The food from the taverna there was delicious with a very nice looking lad working there. The second beach is Tsamadou beach, this beach is on the north of the island and is much more crowded but the sea is even more aqua on the north side of the Island and there is more wind which makes is less hot. The third beach is Potami beach, the picture shows Potami Beach from a viewing point on the road that leads to it. Potami Beach is located on the north-west side of the island. And if you like waves, this is the beach for you. Not the biggest waves for surfing but high enough for a really fun day at the beach. But I do feel like Potami beach is really commercial which I’m not very fond of.

Now what we usually did was that we went you see something culturally and after that in the afternoon we would go to the beach. Now if you like that, you can visit lots of monasteries. The ones in Samos are beautiful and often the location makes it worth going. And the funny thing is, in summer, people actually live there! So you see those, oops, I don’t really know how they’re called sorry. Now Samos is not the place if you want to shop until you drop, I liked a few places but wasn’t blown away. You often drive through these places and it’s nice I guess, not much more to say about that.IMG_0064

I like heat, I like warm weather, so Samos is perfect for me, if the apartment has air conditioning for the evenings. Now the wind on the island really determines the temperature, more wind, the feeling of lower temperature. The wind is more on the north on the island, but since we stayed on the south, the clothes we wore were very simple. Bikini, bikini, bikini. It was so hot and you wear as minimum clothes as possible. So I wore this piece which you can just throw over your bikini which was perfect.

I so loved this island, it was my second year on Samos and I still had loads of fun and did not get bored. Thank you for reading this blogpost about Samos and had fun doing so. And if you maybe consider ever going I hope that this post helped you with the decision.

I hope seeing you on the next one!

With much love,
