As I said in my biography Loves, is being creative an intense way to express yourself. I started with blogging because I want to have my own little place where I can write, use my creativity at taking colorful product photos. Because of it my love for taking photos started to grow. Getting compliments of the photos I take for my blog, certainly helped me taking photography to a next level. My second Instagram account is born, SaidaChahidPhotography. I started this pure to try it out, to give you a glimpse through my camera. I’ll see where this new journey takes me!

So, I already have you meet my camera. Since I have it, it is my showpiece of my whole blogging life. Almost five years and still counting! For this feed I want to have a raw unedited portfolio. No filter, no small adjustment and no photoshop! It felt to be honest so good to do it this way. On my main Instagram account, I only make my photos slightly lighter or adjust a photo to have a white haze, so it matches my feed. I also make the contrast a bit darker. I don’t use a special app for this, the settings in Instagram works fine. I don’t need to much fuss, imagine my feeling when I only use a caption and hashtags for my photography account and hit share. Perfect!

My thoughts for my photography are pretty simple. Whatever looks interesting to me, I’ll shoot it. During summer I shot an outfit in this park. The bows were full in bloom, you’ll see red roses everywhere. It was so beautiful! This time I shot this shot during winter and it gave me a cold view.

A while ago I went with family on a small road trip to Belgium. We visited the Atomiun and of course I needed to take photos of it. I shot many angles, but the one where I stand under it impressed me the most. I could see and feel how massive the bulbs were. The reflection of the sun on them, gave it a futuristic vibe. I imagined than how it would be during the night!

Beauty Review | Ziaja.

As am I getting older I’m getting more and more idle. I think it is because you feel your body is changing, like it is upgrading towards adulthood. Your body, your mind and skin changes into a ‘’shape’’ that is called ‘’you’’’. You will get to know yourself better and you will anticipate to it. Whether you like it or not! It is just something that you cannot change because it is called life.

During my life, my facial skin became important to me, I suffered from acne my whole teenage years and they still pop up every now and then. We all are familiar with those annoying intruders on our faces that are caused by stress, diet and even cosmetic products. Because of this, am I always pleased to get to know new brands. Especially when you discover them spontaneously. I met Ziaja through my latest unboxing blogpost and I fell in love with it ever since.

The beauty of Ziaja is that it is based on natural active ingredients and their pharmaceutical experiences, it has a refined and pleasant fragrance and light texture. All their products are carefully dermatologically and allergy tested in their own labs, never on animals! I have been using it for a while now and I am very pleased with it. The moment I opened it for the first time, the smell was such a pleasure to smell! Not chemical at all. The preservatives are reduced to the essential minimum making it enjoyable to use.

The assortment of Ziaja is tremendous; from woman to men to children. Something for everyone! Their focus is on skin, so you will find a range of facial care, body care and even hair care. Because Ziaja has a wide range of beauty products they have thought of all skin types and this shows that they are thoughtful towards their customers.

Lately wat also has been important to me is where I get my beauty products from and if it truly works. I enjoy it every time when I use it. Whenever I’m done with showering I use Moisturising Body Lotion with Silk Proteins. It absorbs quickly and my skin feels soft right away! Because it is moisturising and it reduces skin roughness I use it also on my elbows and knees for that extra soft touch. During my day, I use the Manuka Tree Purifying Normalising Day Cream. It has an SPF 10 factor and it is for an oily/combination skin type which matches perfectly with my own skin type. My facial skin goes from oily, especially on my T-Zone (forehead, nose, chin and the apples of my cheeks.) to dry at my jaw line. The smell of the Manuka Tree is refreshing on my skin and what I mostly love it doesn’t make my face oily at all!

When I want to pamper myself after a long day I remove my makeup with the Cucumber Cleansing Milk, yet again for an oily/combination skin type. The smell of cucumber makes me feel like I’m in a spa resort relaxing with a towel on my head and two slices of cucumber on my eyes. Perfect!

Are you already imagining it Loves?
