About Me

ย Welcome to Doves and Roses!

My name is Anne and I will be using this little corner of the internet to discuss all things beauty. You can expect daily posts in English and Dutch (Dutchies: please scroll down) on skincare, makeup, and nail polish as well as an occasional fashion or travel post. Most (but not all) skincare posts will feature organic or natural brands, one of my favorite obsessions.

Besides (or more accurately due to) a craving for all things beauty, I have secret hoarding tendencies when it come to nail polish, foundation, and cleansers. The invention of online shopping has not made this any easier.

Some of my other favorite things include green tea and oatmeal, reading and traveling, and relaxing with friends and family. In the real world, I am also trying to get through grad school here in the Netherlands.

I hope you enjoy my little beauty blog and always love reading your comments! You can also get in touch with me through annedovesandroses@gmail.com.

xoxo

Welkom op Doves and Roses!

Mijn naam is Anne en ik zal dit kleine stukje van het internet gebruiken als beauty blog. Er zullen dagelijks posts verschijnen in het Engels en Nederlands (de Nederlandse stukjes staan onderaan) over huidverzorging, make-up en nagellak en soms ook mode en reizen. De meeste huidverzorgings-posts zullen gaan over natuurlijke of biologische merken, een van mijn favoriete obsessies.

Naast (of beter gezegd vanwege) een verslaving aan allerlei schoonheidsproducten heb ik geheime verzamel neigingen van nagellak, foundation en reinigers. De uitvinding van online winkelen heeft dit niet makkelijker gemaakt.

Een aantal van mijn andere favoriete dingen zijn groene thee en havermout, lezen en reizen, en lekker ontspannen met vrienden en familie. In het echte leven probeer ik mijn promotieonderzoek af te ronden.

Ik hoop dat jullie mijn kleine beauty blog leuk vinden en vind het altijd superleuk om jullie commentaar te lezen! Je kunt me ook bereiken via annedovesandroses@gmail.com.

liefs

Anne

      You could try to learn, but it isn’t the easiest language (especially since we all tend to switch to English when we hear someone struggling)
