    Hey Lariesa, thank you for sharing a bit about yourself πŸ™‚

    When I read that you went to Avans in Breda, I was like “OH MY GOD! I GO TO THE SAME PLACE!” πŸ˜€ I’m actually studying Environmental Science there.

    You’re so lucky that you got to meet Norman Reedus! Walking Dead is one of my favourite series.

    I’m excited that you’re thinking about making videos! Video editing can be a little time consuming but eventually you’ll get there πŸ™‚ Can’t wait for some videos because I live on YouTube videos. Also, you’re the second Dutch beauty blogger I know who shares their content in English. The other is NikkieTutorials, I think you know of her too. But she does very bold looks, whereas yours is more natural and focusing on the lips, which I personally like. I find myself reaching for gel liner / kohl pencil, mascara and matte liquid / regular lipstick. But I barely ever go buy them unless I run out of them, because I feel guilty spending on myself.

    And I love Chrisspy too! But I think my favourite is Kathleen Lights ’cause I find her funny πŸ˜€ Other than beauty gurus, I love watching PewDiePie.

    Your cats are adorable, btw πŸ™‚

    Sorry for the long essay for a comment :3 Have a great weekend!

      So cool that you’re also going to Avans! Are you in that big fancy building? I was in the old building. πŸ™ Yaaass I know Nikkie, not in real life but her Youtube videos are amazing. I just recently subscribed too Kathleen and she is really funny and seems like a very nice person.

      I love that you have made a nice long comment, thank you so much for your time Tamkin! Hope that you’ll be visiting my blog more often! πŸ™‚

      You have a great weekend too!

      ps I havent forgot about the comparison, need to find some time to make some pictures with good lighting in this horrible Dutch weather. >_<

        I’m doing my minor virtually from Stockholm. So I haven’t had the chance to go to the nice building yet, but yes, that’s the one πŸ˜€ It looks really nice now!

        And I just heard from the friend that it’s raining hard in Rotterdam. Hope it didn’t dull your day πŸ™‚

        Thanks for your reply πŸ˜€
