About me

Hi! My name is Marjolein, born in April and living in London, although I used to live in a small country called The Netherlands before I hopped on a place and moved across the pond. I studied Media, Information and Communication in Amsterdam where I learned all about creating content and now work at a fashion company in Shoredich 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 hotspots 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 here 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!

Ideal Saturday evening: I'm the incredible age of 25 and I do not act like it at all. I'm a huge granny when it comes to spending my Saturday night. I love to just lay in bed with my favourite series and a cup of tea.

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. The 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 don't think the film has English subtitles, but you can still watch it and try to understand the weird languague us Dutchies speak. I went to see the film in the cinema six (!) times, which in my book means it's a must see!

Favourite tv-show: Well this changes daily, but currently I'm OBSESSED with Big Bang Theory, Jane The Virgin, 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.

Celebrity crush: This changes a lot too, but I always come back to Tyler Blackburn, Sam Claflin and Harry Styles. Ooh and when I was younger I had quite the crush on Joe Jonas - remember those Camp Rock days-, which is why I freaked out so much when he liked my Instagram photo. It turned out to be the funniest vlog I ever filmed.

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.

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: Becca. 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,
