The Bold and The Beautiful


I don’t mean to sound arrogant, I just always wanted to use this for a blog post title! I have been meaning to write about my BlackBerry Bold for over 2 years now but somehow I never got around to do so. It might seem pointless now as I’m getting an iPhone soon but actually is the reason I’m posting it still.

My Emirates Open Day Experience

The beauty of having a blog is that it gives you the power to help others. Today I hope to be helpful to anyone who either wants to change the course of their lives or actually pursuit the Emirates life. Two months ago I decided to do a complete 180 by applying at Emirates to become a cabin crew member. I am proud to have experienced this day and I want to share it as for me it was very helpful to read the experiences of others before me.

Tani’s Moments #3

Hello and Welcome new Followers!

Before I continue with regular blogging, here are some Tani’s moments from the last few months:

In the end of august I went to the beach in Amsterdam. Did you know we have beaches here? They are fake but still very nice to cool off. This picture is taken at the entrance of Beach: Blijburg aan Zee at the north of the city. I totally love the Las Vegas sign thing!! Tram 26 from central station will bring you here.

Ahhhh, a coffee moment with a good friend, Big fan of those! And my Starbucks city mugs :).

Browsing through some old memories, Stockholm to be more precise, I stumbled upon this picture and was amazed by how natural I look here, as if it was achieved with makeup but actually it’s not. This was taken in 2007 and back then I only wore some kohl liner, mascara and blush. Today I actually have to slam some makeup on to look like this, haha! Kidding, it’s not that bad but oh am I thankful for the existence of makeup!

Early october it was my birthday, 32 already O_O

My skin got really bad recently and a friend of mine suggested I try these products, are you familiar with them or would you like to see a review? Let me know in the comments below!

I love to do makeup and photo projects at home, it looks a little something like this:

This was with my classmate and friend Imogen. I did her makeup and she did my makeup and hair!

Then before I  knew it the color of the leaves were changing which makes me want to go outside with my camera, although this one was taken with my Blackberry.

I read about this DIY (do it yourself) project about how to tune up a candle holder and I immediately ran to the craft store (Hema/Action) to make my own, like it?

Currently I’m very much into the tv show Revenge. I have a thing for shows about rich people with their badass problems and scheming. But what immediately draw my attention was the music chosen on this show, almost after every episode I end up downloading a song or two. The masterpiece for me was   this song in the last episode of season one. The combination of the scene and this song is very well chosen, it emphasizes the image on your tv screen so much that it will give you goosebumps. I will not give away what it’s about but I would describe this song as the sound as when everything falls apart and the world comes crushing down on you.

It was Sabroso Cocktails time again! Me and Cissy were present at the Cafe Cultura event this past weekend. The pictures should go online soon on their website but here’s a preview:

How was your Halloween? I cheated this year, this picture is done completely without real makeup. But photoshopping can be so much fun too! I am a bit of a computer nerd I must say ;).

I recently had my hair cut (read here) and there was one unforgettable moment during that whole day. My friend who is learning to cut hair is called Sophia, now look at the name of the tea we drank during the break: And that is how I will always remember her!

Last but not least I’m very excited to see the work of this photographer who I did makeup for  last week. He chose to do portraits inspired by the work of Joel Grimes so I’m curious to see if we have achieved that!

I hope you enjoyed reading this update!
