GeneralInsider’s Obsessions: Rebecca Zeijdel-Paz


Rebecca Zeijdel-Paz, a native of the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, began her career studying in Milan and Auburn as well as interning at Carolina Herrera New York. Upon moving back to her home island she began merging her experiences abroad with her island as inspiration and at 23, Rebecca founded her jewelry line, BECK.

​BECK consists of a collection full of stunning, island-glam pieces that combine yellow gold with vibrant Swarovski crystals as well as colorful stones like turquoise, amethyst, white quartz and freshwater pearls. Today, after 6 years in the industry each BECK is still handmade by the designer in her ateliers in Curaçao, Miami and New York. Find out more about Rebecca’s current obsessions below!

HairThink Pink for Hair

hairPink is everywhere (even refs in the NFL games!) to acknowledge and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My mother is a brave breast-cancer survivor, so I love supporting the cause whenever possible. HairArt International, which is a highly respected family-owned leader in hair tools and appliances, has put out a special series H3000 Collection of high-tech heat styling designs in pink which were created to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation. NBCF will receive 10% of the proceeds from this fabulous collection, which is not only fun and girly, but incredibly functional. Ever since I heard Ken Paves say that wet hair is particularly vulnerable to breakage, I’ve winced when tugging a brush through my long hair after a shower. That all changed when I discovered HairArt’s H3000 Tourmaline Ceramic Boar Bristle Round Brush which is gentle and forgiving, but still gets the job done. I’ve often heard that boar bristles are the big secret behind luscious, healthy hair, while working well with heat styling. The brush does add lustrous shine, great volume allows for styling minus the static.  This well-balanced ionic brush features a ceramic barrel to distribute heat evenly and a lightweight handle for easy styling. I’m forever looking for an outstanding comb that I can use for precise styling and straightening, and HairArt’s comb series fits the bill. They are specially designed to resist heat and add extra shine to hair while resisting that pesky static cling.

Mom & KidsArt for Kids

bradfordbook1It’s never too early to expose the younger set to the world of art, especially since imaginations run wild and creativity abounds in fresh minds. An introduction easily made at home is with the bright and colorful book SIX, which is no ordinary counting board book. The author Katherine Bradford is an accomplished New York artist who is known for her portrayal of ships and water, which I find luminous and whimsical. Her work is displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Portland Museum.


Beauty, MakeupThe Eyes Have It

clq_ZKYC01_402x464Clinique is well-loved for their popular Chubby Sticks, so I was super excited when I heard they were launching their Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara. As someone who has thinner, short lashes (can you even see them?!), the Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara promises “lusciously full-bodied, curled, thick lashes.” Offered in four colorful shades, this mascara is highly pigmented mascara for strong definition, which is perfect for a gal like myself. The oversized molded brush and the mascara’s thickening polymers helps deliver volume. All mascara tends to weigh my lashes down, so I still needed the help clq_ZGH504_402x464of a eyelash curler – but if you have thicker lashes, this mascara will probably immediately give your lashes a lift. It also basically stays put through the whole day – a total win! (Because really, who has time to freshen up their mascara mid-day?!)

I also tried their Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse for brows. My brows are pretty light, so I definitely need some help to give them definition. What I loved about this product was it’s ease of use. The gel-mousse formula defines, styles and thickens brows instantly with just a few strokes. It’s “formulated with a combination of silicone film formers that keep brows in place” – and after trying it, I can assure you that it does not smudge! At $16, it’s a total must to help define your eyes!
