WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

I am literally taking a walk On The Wild Side here with a post about beauty products. As this lock down slowed our lives down, I got out of my comfort zone and standard routines. After cutting my own bangs and coloring my hair pink, I thought it would be safer to try new skin care product from France. And in the category “everybody always asks me about my morning routine” (which I don’t think anyone ever does) I will let you know why I want to write about this.

Beauty products? Hear me out…

First of all, On The Wild Side is a new line of skin care products which are organic and 100% natural. The two main ingredients birch sap (detoxifying and revitalizing) and beech buds (regenerating and draining) come directly from their natural eco-system.

Secondly, I have seen lots of beauty bloggers and fashionista’s on my feed venturing out to interior design. I thought it would be a nice little experiment to go in the opposite direction. I am tapping into this new field of blogging with the confidence of Bambi on the ice.

Also, at Live Loud Girl we are passionate about supporting small businesses. Having worked with so many of them in our work as stylists, we know that the passion and dedication a small business owner pours into his or her products is incomparable then a products rolling of the conveyer belt of a big corporate. You see it, you feel it, you know it!

And last but not least, I am in the over-40 club now. That in combination with living in a harsh sunny climate, I want to take care of my skin in the best way possible. I have learnt that we do not need all those chemicals and synthetic products on our skin. I want naturally hydrating and preferably regenerating products that make my skin glow. And that is exactly what On The Wild Side does.

Re-evaluate

It is always a good idea to re-evaluate your standard routines. Times change, you change, your ideas change. My morning routine is a new one now. And looking in the mirror ensures me it was the right choice.

THE TEAM IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA

We are strong believers of celebrating life as much as possible. So when the day came the team was finally complete again since ages (which is a rare occasion as Roos is located in Cape Town) we decided to go all out and celebrate it with a team shoot. And so the Live Loud Girl team got in front of the camera.

EASY PEASY EASTER

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetWe have had a lot of bunny’s this spring as a run up to this happy holiday. As the kids will be off school and able to enjoy the beach before it heats up again, we will be working on some amazing projects that you will see more of later on this blog and on Instagram.

We’re looking forward this weekend to the traditional egg-hunt, protein filled breakfast  and lots of chocolate.  As a true Dutchie and sister of a florist I could not resist to bring some seasonal flower decorations into the home.

FAMILY AFFAIRS

Hello sunny weekend! Hello little, big brother!
It is so nice to have visitors, especially when it’s family. My brother just arrived to spend the weekend with us. As Holland is grey and freezing at the moment, we are out to get him his shot of vitamin D and the boys are happy to tag along.

Uncle L. knows the drill and brought us lots of Dutch goodies. (I never dare to tell my family that some of them are available here in Dubai as for some reason they seem to taste better from back home).
