Lush has really nice scented balms and stones for bath. You may also want to try out bath soap from Dr Kniep, you can get it from De tuinen or Kruidvat. Pamper your self by lodging in a very nice hotel with welness Once in  a while, at least once a month!

Hallo-familie !!! Ja, ik heb jullie familie genoemd, omdat ik mijn online gemeenschap als familie beschouw. Massage is erg belangrijk omdat je spieren ontstoken raken na het sporten. Een massage zal alle gifstoffen in je lichaam helpen. Massage helpt je lichaam intern te reinigen. Ik ben dol op massage van mijn haar, gezicht, nek en dat geeft me een heel goede gevoel!

Manicure en pedicure zijn ook erg belangrijk om je er zo fantastisch uit te laten zien, het is heel belangrijk  om je zelf heel goed te houden. Een lekker warm bad zal je helpen je beter te voelen en een geweldige zelfzorg tip. Lush heeft echt mooie geurende balsems en stenen voor in bad. Misschien wil je ook badzeep van Dr. Kniep uitproberen, je kunt het krijgen van De tuinen of Kruidvat. Soms moet je jezelf verwenen door in een heel mooi hotel met welness te verblijven. Af en toe, minstens één keer per maand!

Het voelt beter als je vaak met je familie rondhangt en er minstens één keer per week van houdt, omdat het helpt bij het verlijmen.

Bedankt veel voor het lezen!

Hoe breng je quality time door met je geliefden?

Ik hou zoveel van jullie!

How To fall In Love With Your Job Again!!!

Hello my loves! Few days ago was valentine’s day, I hope you all had fun! Since we are still in the loving spirit and mood, I thought I share with you all tips on how to fall head over heels in love with your job again!

I love my job – in fact I’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed every job I’ve ever had, from waitress through to retail, from lecturer through to fashion blogger, from photo model into a loving mother they’ve all taught me lessons and changed me for the better. From that feeling of new job excitement, through to passing your probation and all the way to celebrating your work anniversaries – your job can be one of the most rewarding and fulfilling parts of your life. But what happens when the love is gone and you find yourself dreading your alarm going off in a morning?

It does not matter how you love your job from the onset, I think after a while we might start falling out of love because we want to have new adventure, experience new things, become more independent and so on. – But how do you work out which path you need to take? Some jobs can be very challenging and consume lots of our time, but is very important to have a balance. Some of us get burn out, break down or even experience panic attack during working hours. Taking some time to ventilate, relax,  spend time with your loved ones, go on holiday is very important. It is very crucial to avoid too much caffeine and unhealthy habits in order to be extra active at the work place.

You do not let the work to rule your life, rather be a very balanced effective productive being!

I hope you are inspired.

p.s. Thank you so much my lovely friend for hooking me up with this beautiful coat.

I love you all so so much!

Ti amo tanto

Ik hou van jou

The Ultimate Guide on Finding a Job!

Hello my lovelies, I hope you all are doing alright. I have coached many of my friends and family members to find a job or to become an entrepreneur. One of my aunt’s daughter is doing very well now in Lagos Nigeria, as a makeup artist, I remembered few years ago, I bought some cool make up items from The Netherlands, and gave some to her as a gift, she later started practising with makeup, now she is an independent t makeup artist, doing the makeup of very famous nolly wood actresses in Nigeria.

Today’s blog post is to inspire you on how to find a job and also some great advice for employers. According to a research carried out by LinkedIn, sixty percent of jobs are unadvertised. Open solicitation is a great way to find a job. Many international students has asked me for coaching on how to find a job as well. Most international students that came from Africa, China, India always faces challenges when they finish their programmes, some of them do wish to stay back in Europe to find a job, but most of them do not know how to go about it because of language barrier, new environment, cv customisation and so on. It is very important to have a job in order to be able to sustain one self.  Finding a job is not the key thing, but your ability to keep the job depending on your competencies and passion. My advice to you is to go for jobs that you are passionate about. Some skills such as time management, self-control, Social awareness.

Some cool sites for finding a job ASAP are as follow:
Gum tree
monster board
LinkedIn
– job agencies such as Adecco, Tempo team.

Use key words when conducting research on google and be very specific.

Organisations should have good reputation and good role models to employees, be honest, self-aware, not deceitful, fairness, trust and has best interest of their employees at heart. A great organisations should also be able to create value for their employees. 

 

I hope this tips where helpful!

I love you

Top Home Cleaning Tips!

Hello my amazing friends! I hope you all are doing great! I truly love cleaning. I enjoy keeping my home tidy. I have also cleaned for very famous vacational home in the Netherlands called Roompot. By the way, if you need a cheap place to stay ( vacational home) please check vakantie veiling, you can find affordable vacational homes.  My frind is a champion in cleaning,  i do learn from her as well. she introduced me to HG  cleaning item commonly sold in The Netherlands.  Always use airfreshner to make your home smell fresh. I have also worked for a home care company in The Netherlands called Allevo in Goes in The Netherlands for several years.

White vinegar is a good cleaning agent for cleaning your bathroom. Please do keep it away from children’s reach. My cool tips to parents is to always coach your kids right from childhood to learn how to take good care of their items, clean their rooms and arrange their toys properly,  that would help your children learn better and be more organised. A very good friend of mine once  said to me, if a parent is clean and tidy, their kids would follow their footstep. i totally agree. my two adorable sons are very tidy and organised and am very grateful because of that!

What is your cleaning tip?

how do you keep your home tidy?

I do love to learn from you.

Thank you so much for reading my wonderful friends.

I love you so so much
