Finally, I have more or less settled down in Amsterdam now. I handed in my thesis in Denmark back in February, and came to Amsterdam (actually Almere which is a city nearby). I haven’t had time to either play with makeup or post regularly, though I did find some time to buy a little along the way (ooops…).
To be honest, I am a little disappointed in the selection of makeup here considering that Amsterdam is a big European city. I have found a drugstore called Kruidvat and another one called etos. They offer the basic brands with a basic selection, but nothing that takes my breath away. If anyone out there knows more places, please let me know. I was hoping to find a Sephora, but unfortunately, it was closed some time ago.
I have been going a little foundation cray cray lately. Have bought a few as I’ve found them on sale. I have been wanting to try out the Maybelline Fit Me foundation for the longest time. I don’t know why either Hong Kong nor Denmark stock it. And I’ve also wanted to repurchase the L’Oreal True Match foundation – which I used years ago. And I also got the Garnier BB Cream. I will do a review of them later after I have tried them out for a while.
I look forward to explore more, but my general impression is that the selection here could be better.
And also, I met up with the sweetest Steph of http://thinklovemakeup.com/. She saw on my blog that I was coming to Amsterdam, and she was here on vacation, so we decided to meet up. It was my first time meeting up with other beauty bloggers. We just met up and had a drink, and I had a really good time.
So much has happened, so I’ll try to make it short
- after 10 months in Hong Kong, I went back to Denmark end of January;
- struggled until 5th February to hand in my thesis;
- had a wonderful week playing tourists in Denmark with my boyfriend;
- came to The Netherlands for the first time of my life;
- trying to settle down and looking for a job here;
- went back to Denmark again for one week as my mom had to undergo an operation;
- and for now – I am very grateful that I have got some responses from some of the companies for which I have sent my application to.
I am very excited to share my journey with those of you who have been following me. What keeps me busy these days is intense job search, and I’m also self-studying for a certification called ITIL which is an IT Service Management certification.
I have so so much I want to share on my blog, but there have been things that are just taking up all my time. Hope you guys will stick around for more product reviews.
The sun has been peeking out both in Denmark and The Netherlands, and I am enjoying it to the fullest! Hope it will start getting warmer!
