    My Olaplex Journey from crap to healthy

    Olaplex saved my hair

    Olaplex, people talk about it but there are enough people who no have idea what Olaplex is. When people touch my hair and tell me that they love it they always look strange when I tell them I used Olaplex. That inspired me to write a nice little article about Olaplex, I let my hairdresser do it to my hair twice and I also finished one bottle of home treatment so I do know a bit about it. Also my hairdresser took some amazing pictures that I will be including in this article. You also should check her out on her instagram Dhanasalon. But lets talk a bit about what Olaplex did for my really damaged hair.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice [2016]

    Superman, all about him?

    Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth. As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, and so he dons his mask and cape to right Superman’s wrongs. The rivalry between them is furious, fueled by bitterness and vengeance, and nothing can dissuade them from waging this war. However, a dark new threat arises in the form of a third man: one who has a power greater than either of them to endanger the world and cause total destruction. But that is just the movie synopsis. I watched this movie and let me tell you what I think.

    Boxer Braids – Hair inspiration


    Boxer braids

    So recently I came across Vintagirie an amazing Dutch blog. She has a lovely blog and amazing style, but what I really adore is her way to style hair. She knows her hair and hairstyles. She talks in a recent blogpost about boxer braids. Something that is new to me, I came across it once on instagram but I skipped it fast. She did this hairstyle herself and I am pretty sure I could never replicate it so pretty as her so today I am not going to show you my failed edtion of boxer braids but a nice pretty post with inspiration. So keep on reading and after you are done check out Vintagirie.

    House of Harlow Mini Sunburst

    First House of Harlow piece

    Talking to a friend about a house of harlow necklace that I saw in the sale she gave me a piece of advice “You are always talking about the brand, just buy it”.  And you know, good advice because I have not felt regret for a second. I might be addicted now, like I am to Pandora and Swarovski but I can not complain. Picking good jewelry can be harder then you expect, because some brands are expensive but only because of their name and not the quality. That was the thing that put me of this brand initially. It is base metal with gold plating, so I had my trust issues with this piece.

    JEWELRY | Pandora spiral rose ring

    Roses are….from black Onyx

    Obsessions, I have them. I actually have quite a lot of things I collect and recently I became interested in collection Pandora stacking rings. Stacking rings used to be a fascinating thing to me because I am a mix and match girl and also Pandora is an amazing brand. I have a few rings that I got as a birthday gift and Christmas gift. But the above ring is the first Pandora ring I bough myself…..

    I was not planning on getting myself a new piece of jewelry, I am actually saving up for a few things. But I was shopping for my sisters birthday when I spotted a 50% discount display full of Pandora rings. Now I have to say that I tried on 15+ rings and most of them were tiny but the rose ring was one that fits perfectly on my middle finger and loosely on my ring finger. Sadly enough I can not find a link for you guys if you are interested in this ring because it is discontinued, so you need to check with your local Pandora store if they still have this one.  The normal price €60 what I think is really nice for a silver ring with a black Onyx and I payed €30 what is a steal!

    For this article I tried a new way to take pictures, I decided to add stones and a different background, what do you think. Do you prefer this over a plain white background?

    Uzuma juices

    Recently I found out about Uzuma and their slowjuices. I heard about slow juicing before but I never really read more into it. Uzuma offers bottles of juice that are slowjuiced using the latest innovative methods, allowing you to benefit from maximum vitamin and mineral retention. Also there are no preservatives, fragrances, colourings or flavourings, meaning you get just 100% pure healthy juice. Many supermarked juices or smoothies have loads of E numbers or sugar added, so I really wanted to test an all healthy juice. And I did for three full days, 7 bottles a day. So keep on reading…

    The package

    Uzuma send me their package with a track and trace, so I knew exactly when I was getting my big box full of juices. I was pleasantly surprised when I received my box, I got 21 juices in a big box with their logo/bottles printed on it. The box was fully lined with styrofoam and had an icepack inside. This was to preserve the juices freshness, and when I received my package the bottles where slightly frozen. So big props for that part, because you get the best quality juice delivered to your door.


    Uzuma offers 4 programs and you can check here Uzuma’s advice for what program suits you. To run down the programs, I listed the most important things about it bellow. 

    The Uzuma SLIM programme has been specifically designed for those looking to lose large amounts of weight in a fast and safe manner. Uzuma supplies you with 7 bottles of highly nutritionally diverse green juices for each day of the programme, as well as our specially made Uzuma app to help you manage your regime.

Uzuma supplies you with weekly packs of green juice to ensure you are getting everything you need! 4 bottles for each day.

    2 Bottles of Uzuma a day! Uzuma FIT is the ideal solution for those who are looking for an easy and convenient way to ensure they are getting all of the daily nutrition they require.

You will receive 7 bottles of our fresh healthy green juice for each day, keeping you on track as you prepare to enter into a healthier lifestyle.

    Picking a program

    I had a hard time picking a program because they all sounded great, I am trying to loose weight for years now and even when I am eating healthy I can not loose weight. Even my doctor could not tell me why I am not losing weight. So I decided to pick Slim. I did hope that I would lose some weight while doing this, and I did! I lost 2.5 kilo’s in those three days, I felt full of energy and more fit.
    I am one of those people who forgets to do the thing she needs to do, so I was already making plans to hang a piece of paper and install some alarms for when I needed to take a juice. But when reading their site and blog I found this article. Telling me about their app, so I installed it and it works like a charm. Every time I needed a bottle, I would get a message also it reminds you to drink your water. I felt like it was a really good way to keep you on track and to make sure you drink every bottle you need. It is a great free app. 


    Uzuma offers 7 juices, all mixed to perfection. I really like that the bottles have a load of different ingredients, it is not just one thing but it is a blend of healthy ingredients. I also really like the taste of most of them, there is one that I do not like..but that is a personal preference. 

    Orange, Granny Smith, Pineapple, Carrots & Lemon juice
    Rise is a very fresh tasting juice, I can clearly taste the carrots with a hint of lemon. This one I drank in the morning on day one and I felt awake in an instance and I felt like it was a little energy boost in a bottle. Opening the bottle I expected a strong scent but it was actually very mellow and pleasant.

    Orange, Carrots, Cantaloupe melon & Mango
    Shine is one of my favorites, a very fruity juice and perhaps the most fruity one of the the bunch with a hint of carrot.

    Carrots, Apple, Celery, Cucumber, Beetroot & Lime

    Fuse is a red juice that gets the color from beets. And it really tastes like beets but less nasty. I used to make smoothies with beets and those overpower everything. Yet this one actually tastes very nice, I think the combination with cucumber makes the difference.

    Beetroots, Orange, Celery, Carrot & Basil
    This one had really overpowering beetroots, but again it tasted nice because other things where added to it. This one drinks away very easily. Also

    Apple, Spinach, Kale, Broccoli, Cucumber & Banana
    Karma was truthfully not that great, the combination is not my favorite and I think it is the broccoli, it felt kind of chunky and I had a hard time drinking it. Also I wanted a banana taste and I did not taste any banana in it. This is actually the only one that I do not like, but still it was drinkable.

    Apple, Cucumber, Avocado, Spinach, Fennel, Chinese Cabbage, Kale, Broccoli, Lemon juice &Ginger
    Zen is one of my favorites, and to be honest I tought I would not like it because of all the ingredients. I can not really pinpoint the flavor, one moment I taste broccoli and then cucumber…everything blends really good together.

    Chinese cabbage, Cucumber, Celery, Spinach, Granny Smith & Ginger
    Aura is green based, and normally these are not so loved. But I have to say that this is one of my favorites. The taste that stands out the most is spinach and the granny smith apple. This is kind of a dinner in liquid form. I do have the habit to chew while drinking this, perhaps because it feels like I am really eating spinach.

    Was I hungry?

    My mom, my friends and even my Grannie asked me during those three days, if I was hungry. It is a normal question considering I only drank juices. Also each bottle was only 240 ml, so I was also questioning if that would fill me up. 
    But it did! I was so surprised when I drank my first bottle in the morning and felt full. I actually had the problem that I felt so full that I groaned when I heard an other alarm from the app, signaling me that I should drink an other bottle. I was still full from the bottle I had before that. If you are somebody who has a hard time to feel full and you overeat these juices are an option to add to your daily routine. 
    The one thing that I have to point out is that I did miss chewing for those three days. I felt myself chewing during drinking and that was kind of silly. But you get used to it after day one. 

    How did I feel?

    People warned me that I would feel tired and very low energy. That did not happen, I also did not experience headaches, nausea or something like that. I felt full of energy and healthy. 
    After three days, would I do this again? Just living on juices? To be honest, I feel like the those three days I was just busy with drinking the juices and I felt rushed to finish them in time because I did not want to skip juices. I think the Slim version is perfect for people who need a three day ‘kickstart’ to healthy, who need the guidelines to follow to get into healthy habits. I personally would do the fit version if I had to pick again, that would mean only two juices a day and next to that healthy eating.
    Uzuma is amazing because they use loads of different fruits and veggies, you are not just drinking one thing. You get everything you need from drinking 7 bottles a day and that is amazing. 

    The cost for these bottles are kind of pricey, for 3 days slim you pay €73.50. For one week Steady €89.00. Fit is €98.00 for 2 weeks and Detox is 3 days €73.50. You can read more about the programs and prices here

    Also you can buy loose bottles for €3.50 a piece. You can check that out at this link.
    If you want to try this, with discount code Fresh2015 you can get a 25% discount. The code is valid till 31 January 2015.

    I am really happy that I tried this, it was really an experience. And I do feel like it did my body good, kind of detoxed while losing 2.5 kilo in three days. Also my belly fat went down and I lost 5 cm. If you want a fresh start with getting fit and eating healthy and you want something to start with. I would say, check Uzuma.
