About me

Hi! My name is Marjolein, I'm 26 years old and I live in London, although I used to live in a small country called The Netherlands before I hopped on a plane and moved across the pond. I studied Media, Information and Communication in Amsterdam where I learned all about creating content and I now work at a luxury fashion company in Shoreditch doing exactly that. 
My blog, that you are reading this page on right now, is all about fashion, beauty, travelling and food. Everything I love basically.

How it all began
I have always loved make-up, even when I was a kid I was intrigued by it all. I was very young when I purchased my first mascara and lipgloss and so the make-up obsession began...
In 2012 I started to watch beauty videos on YouTube and it sort of opened my eyes to the beauty community. It made me very excited about trying new make-up and other beauty products. Then I came to a point in my life where the question ''Why do I not start a blog?'' popped into my head more often. That was the moment when I started Miss CocoBlue. 

Currently, I am more passionate about travelling, discovering new restaurants and fashion, but occasionally a beauty post will pop up on the blog. I am still the kind of gal that spends an hour in Boots and Superdrug and I need to express my opinions about those beauty items somewhere, you know. 

Why Miss CocoBlue?

My first, expensive nail polish was from Chanel. I had been eyeing the colour for about a year, but I could not find a similar, cheaper colour. So I just decided to make a splurge and buy it. It is a gorgeous, baby blue colour with the name ‘Coco Blue’. Put 'Miss' in front of it and there you have Miss CocoBlue.

Here are a few of my favourite things articles I have ever written on the blog:
1. My Top 5 Brunch Spots in Amsterdam
2. The New York City Guide
3. Follow Me Around Brighton and London: OOTD
4. The New Benefit Brow
5. The Rainbow Cake

And now a bit of info about me
You probably think: who is this Dutch gal that eats brunch every weekend and posts way too many flowers? Well, these are a few facts about me!

What do I do when I'm not blogging: Does eating and sleeping count? Only joking of course. Not really. I like shopping, travelling, discovering new food hotspots with friends and photography. I also go the cinema a lot and see the occasional gig. There is nothing better than that!

Favourite animal: Without a doubt dogs! Nothing beats the cuddly greeting of a dog. 

Favourite city: It used to be London but since I live there now, I have to say Amsterdam or New York City.

My biggest fear: Spiders! Gosh, hate them so much.

Favourite food: Hard to pick just one, but probably something sweet. I love the red velvet cake from De Drie Graefjes in Amsterdam or my rainbow cake. It tastes exactly like the red velvet, but takes a very long time to make. And when I'm in a savoury mood pasta and pizza are my ultimate cravings!

Favourite drink: I'm going to be really boring here and say water. Nothing makes me happier than drinking water, or tea. Ooh, maybe fresh ginger tea could be my favourite drink. I love that stuff!

Favourite song: I'm such a sucker for End of Time by BeyoncĂ© and I love UGH! from The 1975. Blossoms is my favourite band at the moment (Your Girlfriend and I Just Imagined You are so catchy), and yes,  I'm the type of person that puts a song on repeat until even I get annoyed.


Favourite movie: Lion. This film made me cry so much when I saw it in the cinema and it still makes me cry to be honest. I also love this Dutch romantic comedy called 'Weg van Jou'. Normally Dutch films are pretty bad, but I really like this one. It's funny, recognizable, romantic and if you are Dutch you need to see it. I would also recommend watching the films Wonder and Brooklyn. The last one reminded me so much of my experience of moving to a different city.

Favourite tv-show: Well this changes daily, but currently I'm OBSESSED with Schitt's Creek, Brooklyn Nine Nine and All American. HIMYM, Friends and New Girl also make the cut whenever I don't know what I want to watch.

Favourite clothing item: My vintage blue leopard faux fur coat. The print is amazing, it keeps me warm in the winter and it was €20! 

Favourite high street store: I shop the most at ASOS, but if I have to pick an actual store it will be Topshop or Monki.

Heels or flats: I want to be the kind of girl that says heels, but flats all the way!

Favourite make-up brand: If I feel fancy: Charlotte Tilbury or Nars. When I'm not feeling spendy: Collection or Colourpop.

So that was a bit of information about me! I hope you enjoy reading what I get up to and also make sure to follow me on social media to not miss anything! :)

Lots of love,
Marjolein
