No full fashion post on the blog today. I’ve been working non-stop for some time now, and I really feel like taking a break. I don’t have to fly because I’m having my summer time off right now. This means spending some quality time with my family, friends and it gives me a good opportunity to sleep, getting those jetlags out of my system.
I’ve noticed that you guys would like to know me a little bit better. (up close and personal), Some of you have sent me the most awesome emails. Love, when you guys do that! I decided to answer these questions in this post so hopefully, you get to know me better, and it’s fun to read.
Let’s do 25 facts about me, 50 is a little bit too much and a lot of reading…
My full name is Saskia Patricia Olivieira My last name is from Portugal but I’m not Portuguese at all, I wish! No,
I’m from Suriname, a former Dutch colony of the Netherlands. When I was 3 years old my mother decided to move to Holland, so I’ve been raised in The Netherlands.
You can wake me up for a full plaid of Gamba’s or shrimps and I love Sushi.
I love to change my hair from long to short from red to blond or anything in between. To make that possible without damaging my own hair, I wear hair extensions, lace wigs or anything that will accomplish the look I would love to have for that moment.
My Favourite Clothing Brand
That’s an easy fact because I wear what I like. The clothes I wear and show on my blog are not about brands at all If I like it, I will buy it, and if it’s a designer piece, that’s fine. But I really don’t care about brands. I have to feel confident and comfortable in my clothes and of course, it has to look good on me. 😉
Morning or Evening
I’m definitely not a morning person.
I love old school music. I listen to Madonna, Prince and Blackstreet, still love those old skool beats. But I also listen to Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Rihanna. As long as the beat touches my heart.
I love Chocolate, I can’t resist chocolate. I really need to control myself if it comes to chocolate. I just can’t eat one or a little piece. No, I want the full blow.
I got one, a sweet little tattoo for my eyes only.
- My guilty pleasure
This might sound a little strange, but I love to fill my shopping cart on the internet, I make all those combinations without buying or ordering anything. I know, Craziness all over.
I am terrified of snakes, even as a little girl, I had nightmares about snakes. You can put me in a room full of spiders, nothing wrong with that, but show me a snake, and I will beat your ass up.
- Brothers and sisters, I’m the one and only child of my mother, from my father’s side I got 18 brothers and sisters.
My Birth date is 31 July, yes I’m a Leo.
You won’t believe how much make-up I have. I don’t use most of it. I got this signature look I always seem to fall back to. I’m rocking this plane and simple look most of the time, the only thing I change is the color of my lipstick. I use foundation, blusher, eyelashes, Eyeliner, and nude lipstick or gloss. That’s it!
I am not shy or afraid to speak my mind. Most of the time this gets you in trouble, but I’ve learned not to sacrifice my own opinion to please someone else. This was a big learning process thru out the years.
I love to spent my Holidays in the sun. Meaning, I’m not a winter holiday person. So, no ski trips for me. Favorite destinations will be Suriname, Thailand, Bali, Kuala Lumpur, ABC Islands, anywhere as long as the sun shines bright like a diamond, you feel me?
Obama,Obama, Obama! To me, one of the best Presidents America has had since Clinton and of course the first black American President. Proud! And I love Michelle too, both of them have a great personality.
- How do you do it?
One of the most common questions that people ask me. How do you manage on your own with 2 kids? The answer to that is: I have a clear vision of what I want for me, and my kids. Nothing but the best for us. Nobody is coming between our dreams and goals in life. I don’t depend on anyone but myself, so if something goes wrong, I got nobody to blame but me. You have to play fair with me, cause if you cheat, you going to regret that moment. (Real Talk)
Being active is very important to me. There was a time I only exercised to lose weight. I didn’t like sports at all. That feeling changed a few years ago, after losing a lot of weight and sports became a way of life. Nowadays I try to exercise at least 3 times during the week. I follow the program of Less mills. The body step and Body pump are my favorites. Side note: Not to lose weight but to feel fit.
I wish I could speak Spanish, It’s such a beautiful language. I do speak Italian and ‘a petit peu’ French, but Spanish is still on the wish list.
I don’t go out to the movies that much. I love watching movies in the comfort of my own house, with a big bowl of popcorn and friends. Actually, I like a good television serie with a weekly cliff-hanger much better. Sometimes, If I really like a serie with 12 episodes or something I’d rather wait and watch all the episodes in sequence. I did that with the tv show #BeingMaryJane.
I love shoes! Hahaha, I guess you already found that one out. Not only high heels but also sneakers are filling my closet. One day I will have my own shoe closet, just like Carry. (Sex and the City) Yes, I have a dream…
- Team player
I love to work in a team.
I’ve been working for my airline company for almost 19 years now. I’ve seen a lot of places and met a lot of people. I never work in the same team and even when I fly to the same destination a million times, it’s always different. To be flexible is a priority, you never know what’s going to happen. The funny thing is, when I’m at work, I am somewhere in the sky.
Not good at understanding man, but I’m just a girl.
The most important thing in life. I force myself to learn every day, to leave that footprint as in the Beyoncé song: I was here. I lived, I loved, no regrets, I did everything that I wanted to do. And I always hope to touch you, inspire you during this journey.
I’m proud to be a curvy girl. It took me some time to feel comfortable in the skin I’m in right now. Don’t let anyone tell you, you’re not beautiful. (been there, done that)
