Event Report | Glamour Magazine NL X Rabobank.

‘’It’s all about the money, money, money!’’ A subject that concerns us all. Some live paycheck to paycheck, some live like royals and some cannot even come near a price tag. We rule money and money rules us. So, I was happy to get invited by GlamourNL to attend the event hosted by GlamourNL itself and Rabobank, a Dutch bank. My first thought was: perfect! Maybe I’ll hear great tips for saving money. The method I have for saving money is still going strong, but let’s learn more.

As expected, GlamourNL hosted the event in a beautiful venue in Amsterdam at the Vondelpark. Without a doubt I took pictures and shared them on my Instagram. I was excited about, not only I wanted to be informed about the ins and outs of money, but I also went to it with Esra. Going to an event was a first to her. I loved how excited she was, I believe that she learned a lot from it. Definitely an educated fun day!

We have been told by editor in chief Anke de Jong what to expect during the event. It started with a #bossbabe from Rabobank, who spoke about investing, interest, ratios and all money subjects you can think of. I was more interested in advice on how to save money and different ways to earn money. I have heard the usual, don’t smoke, don’t go to coffee to go shops. Save that money in a jar! After the informative part came personal stories from behind the scene #bossbabes from GlamourNL. I loved hearing their personal stories! How they save money, how did they make good investments when they bought their houses. Their experience felt real, because one day in the future I want to think about doing a mortgage, or not. Either way hearing their experiences helped a lot. It was also a pleasure to hear how they earn an extra next to their jobs. Selling online your stuff was one of them, which made me think that I should do it more often, then just once in a while. I’m sure I got plenty of things to sell that I can make someone else happy with!

Entrepreneurs Ron Simpson from The Avocado Show and Noor de Groot of Queen of Jet Lags were also speaking at the event. I loved hearing how their dreams became real by jumping into their ‘’dare it’’ motivation! At the end, its indeed the best motivation to make your dreams come true.

I also loved hearing from Ron that once you get, give back. Help others in the best way you can. A perfect saying to finish the event of….And this blogpost.

Event Report | Glamour Beauty Festival.

Last Sunday I went with my sister to the Glamour Magazine NL Beauty Festival. It was so amazing! My sister and me had a wonderful time, not only we spend quality time together but wandered trough a beauty heaven! They also chose the perfect location for it, marble and wooden, gold details everywhere. If you know me, you’ll know that I’m marble obsessed! So, imagine my feeling when I put my first step into the location. The fun part of it is, that I knew the location due to my studies. I paid more attention to the architecture than to the lecture, oops! Just by looking at the pictures I took, you would agree with me.

During the festival you could do many things like paint your nails, get a massage, do your hair and makeup! There were also many workshops, from skincare to food to men talk and brands stalls to inform you about their latest products. My sister and me did a lot, we almost forgot the time for the skincare masterclass. Oh, I’m forgetting fries! With pink mayonnaise! Seriously, pink!

There was a moneybox, where you go inside and have to catch a pink ticket while wind blows in the box. If you catch it, you’ll get a surprise gift. I felt like Charlie in the chocolate factory, my inner child woke up and I went in. I didn’t win, but it was fun to be in it!

My sister and I wandered through the stalls and informed ourselves about their products. I was curious about Moroccan oil, Cluse and Zadig & Voltaire. While I was at it, I got a touch up at the Givenchy stall. The makeup artist did so lovely that I took a selfie!

As I said, I attended a skincare masterclass. The speaker talked about all the ins and outs of skincare and it was good to hear the information. She talked about acne, preventing breakouts, natural products, chemical products and how important it is to use a day creme with SPF. She also answered a lot of questions and said that it is not scientifically proven that you get spots from eating chocolate. Good news right!

The main act was *drum rolls* Nikkie Tutorials with a live Q&A! She and her tutorials are pleasuring to look at. She gave honest answers and was down to earth. We also had a great laugh because during the Q&A she made jokes and references in which you will recognize yourself. Of course, she came all glammed up and it was so lovely. By the way, the rumours are true, she is tall!

It was such a fun day, I hope I can share my experience trough the pictures I took!
