hello! i’m Jen
TRAVEL CONTENT CREATOR
I’m Jen otherwise known as izkiz.
I grew up just outside Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Due to having so many different nationalities in my class, I learnt from a very early age about different cultures, religions and countries. I definitely think that’s what sparked my love for all things travel.
I started this blog to document life along side my Instagram. It’s my little corner of the internet where I can show you behind the scenes of the photos I post on Instagram
get to know me
THREE RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME
- The beach is my happy place, I am most content when i’m splashing around underwater or collecting shells on the shore.
- Most of the time I speak my own language which is a mixture of English, Dutch and Turkish.
- I’m a girly girl that loves all things pink, dresses, make up & I spend far too much time buying skincare I can’t afford, but i’ll also be the first to cliff dive, climb a tree or roll around in mud.
My most asked Questions…
Where are you from?
I’m English! I was born in Essex, grew up in The Netherlands, moved to Turkey and now home is back in the beautiful countryside of West Sussex on the South Coast of England.
What camera do you use?
I use a Sony a74 and a Sony a7c for all of my photos and some of my videos. I also my iPhone for video content as thats the one I always have with me!
What do you edit your photos with?
I use Lightroom and my own ‘izkiz’ app which is available on the Apple App Store. It has filters and overlays perfect for all your photos.
What does izkiz mean?
When I started instagram in 2011 I wanted a short, catchy name. It’s random but ‘iz’ comes from the first 2 letters of the city in Turkey that I was living in & ‘Kiz’ meaning girl in Tukish.
