It has been a while since my last post ( I feel like I start all of my new posts with this phrase, damn) but I spent like three weeks in Suriname with my family. Celebrated Christmas over there and flew back home on NYE, which means we celebrated it in the plane…We even got champagne and stuff and it was a fun experience (:
Before I continue, I’d like to wish all of you a happy new year! And I hope it will be a year full of new experiences, making new memories, love, happiness and new friendships..!
Soooo, my holidays. First of all, a little background info. Suriname is a little country in South-America, in fact, right above Brasil. It’s very multi-cultural and my mom’s side of the family lives there.The mother tongue is Dutch, because of the history and colonies and stuff so it’s easy to communicate with the people over there.
Last day, saying goodbye to Nani..
We celebrated Christmas with presents and fooling each other. We changed Black Label into tea and watched my uncle freak out. And we put Nutella on my cousin’s boxers…By the way, don’t tell me that Christmas tree does not look freaking adorable, oh my god.
Going out with the family and I guess we just had to take a pic of Nani’s youngest grand-children. Yup, that’s us.
A few days before Christmas; my mom, aunt, little cousins and I went to this Christmas Wonderland thingy downtown. It was like a Christmas market with Gluhwein and Elsa, Mickey and Minnie Mouse in costumes. More pictures of this night will be posted soon :)
Today we went to Siam Paragon, one of the most expensive (but beautiful) shopping malls in Bangkok. A lot of tourists visit this shopping mall, not just because it’s a must-see but also because you can get 5 to 10% discount on world’s biggest brands.
Today I bought the Clinique Sonic System which I can actually buy for €125 in The Netherlands. In Siam Paragon I could get it for 4200 Baht, but because of the discount I bought it for 3600 Baht (€95). I also got an extra brush (€20). I’ll write a review about the Clinique Sonic System when I get back home!
I also bought the Bobbi Brown Luxury Brush set, including a black, soft beauty-case and 9 brushes:
- Foundation brush
- Face blender
- Eyeshadow brush (2)
- Eye shader
- Concealer brush
- Ultra-fine eyeliner brush
- Blush brush
- Eyebrow brush

I’d love to write more but time’s running and I got a whole country to discover, bye!
