Note To Loves | Why I Started Blogging.

Sometimes I need to remind myself why I started blogging. Especially at moments when I don’t have inspiration or the motivation to work on my blog, quite sad because I love to do it. Lack of time plays also a huge part on why I didn’t blog for a while. I am currently busy with my studies. I go to college from the morning until late afternoon for a week. Basically, a whole work week of almost 40 hours! Then comes doing homework, reading college books and doing assignments. In the weekend, I maintain a part time job and I need to rest from everything. Due to all this I left my blog behind.

I remember like it was yesterday why I wanted to start a blog. At first I wanted to follow vocational training about fashion but here in the Netherlands you need to ‘’audition’’ first before you get into a school of fashion or an art school. They always said to me that I have the basics and an eye for details but it isn’t enough. So, I had to do something else to follow my dreams which is working for a fashion magazine. It bugged me why I didn’t get in but I realised why wait for approval on something you love to do?

Blogging was the first thing that came into my mind when it comes to reaching my goals of writing, taking pictures or better said the whole package when it comes to fashion, beauty and lifestyle subjects. Just like a magazine where I can be the editor, the creative director and photographer. There was a very old friend who I shared my thoughts with, he said to me that I should do it. He pushed my last insecurities away and SaidaChahid.com was born.

Till this day, I appreciate that last push. With many ups and downs that I embrace am I blogging for three years now! Thinking about it makes me so excited and glowy inside. I truly hope I can continue doing it for a long time.

So, Loves bear with me because I promise you, there is more to come from me!

 

New In | Unboxing Love #1

I was always curious about beauty boxes and looked online for information about them, at first I was sceptical because I want to have value of my money. I rather pay a bit much for full sized products then travel sizes so I ended my research when I found Style Tone. The reviews about this beauty box were laudatory so I wanted to try it too. I chose a three-month subscription for €35.00 and I don’t regret it!

I received my first box this month (September). I felt like beauty addict who needed a beauty shot!

I received a blush pen from Ellis Faas. That’s quite unique! A blush pallet that looks like a pen. In the mini magazine that comes with the box says about the blush pen that it gives your make-up look a dewy finish and a long lasting glow. Sounds good! The second product I took from the box is a Pore Qualifying Mineral Detox Mask from Figs & Rouge. The mask eliminates impurities and draws out excess oils for a clearer healthy complexion. As you all know me Loves I have an oily skin so I am very curious about this beauty goodie.

Ladies you cannot have enough nail polishes, Style Tone must think that too because I received a feminine red colour from Emité in the box and I like it! What I also snooped out the box is a mono eyeshadow from Note. I got in a dark purple shade which made me shudder because I’m not used to dark colours as eyeshadow, then again for everything is a first. The next thing I received is a Eyerule No 3 Volumizing Curling Mascara from Ace Of Face. I was instantly impressed by the eye brush because it has a small top and I prefer that more over others because of my small eyes.

I can even enjoy it more because all products from the Style Tone box are cruelty free. Whoop!

On television I saw a commercial about Girls Bag. It is a bag full of full sized products that every girl needs. Even though the target group are mostly teenage girls it didn’t hold me to try one out too! It came in a box but the reasoning behind it is the tote pineapple bag full of goodies. This bag contains not only beauty products but also healthy snacks. Nice!

The goodies you’ll get with the bag are; Rimmel London Volume Colourist Mascara, Herōme Trio W.I.C. Nail Polish set. Oelala! Maybelline Balm & Blush, SmoovAll Skin Contact Spray, Vogue Perfume Deodorant Butterfly and BioFreeze+ Gel. I am very impressed about the amount of beauty products! The price I paid for the bag is €19.90 and only the beauty goodies in it have more value than the asking price!

Here comes the food part Loves; Nãkd Bar Cashew Cookie, JustNuts The Alarm Clock Bar, Katja Candy and Tranquini Drinks in the taste Regular and Jade. The snacks tasted good but the drinks….

The last goodies I received are an Boho Chique Bracelet and many vouchers. Amazing!
