About me

sarah shireen

Hi and welcome!

I just learned that a blog needs a killer ‘about me’ page because, without it, it’s not complete. My first thought was, how the heck do I write a killer ‘about me’ page? And the second question. How do I write an ‘about me’ page, when I’m actually still figuring out myself who I am?! No worries. Let’s start with the basics.

I’m a mid-thirty girl (not sure if I’m still allowed to use girl but whatever) born in The Hague in the Netherlands. I’m Dutch with Indonesian and Surinamese roots. My multicultural roots made me an amazing cook (ahem..) but I’m even better at eating all different kind of foods. I went to college in the beautiful city of Breda (about 30 minutes from Rotterdam), where I still live for now.

I started this blog a few years ago so I could share my travel experiences and passion for makeup. We all lean on Google to look for information on everything! Somewhere I’m hoping that my blog can be helpful to anyone out there. I build this blog all by myself by the way with a lot of help from Google, a lot of patience and even more frustration😜

About 6 years ago I became a flight attendant. I finally found a job that I love and want to do forever. I’m on the road most of the time and I love to travel. When I’m not wearing my uniform, you’ll find me at home probably holding a makeup brush or out with friends.

I always loved a good makeup look, but always told myself that I wasn’t able to do that. One day I stopped doubting myself, binged watched a ton of makeup tutorials and scrolled endlessly on Instagram through makeup photos. Recently I extended my beauty addiction and became a certified brow and lash stylist. It’s never too late to learn!

Even though I have a great job, I’m always looking to explore more, learn more and do more. Nothing beats having your own side hustles to give you more freedom and more time to do the things I truly love. And that is trying cooking classes everywhere in the world and tasting gin tonics in bustling cities.

Well, if you’re still reading this final part I must have said something interesting. Would you consider this an epic ‘about me’ page by the way? Let me know in the comments below! Don’t forget to check out my shop with my own custom made travel and makeup merchandise!
