Welcome to my Colourful World…
I’m Jennifer otherwise known as izkiz. I’m an instagrammer, travel photographer and content creator from the UK.
Although I was born in England, I grew up in a town just outside of Amsterdam in Holland and I now split my time between the UK, the Netherlands and a seaside resort on the Aegean coast of Turkey. I have attended International schools my whole life, which definitely shaped me into the person I am today. I had friends from all over the World and I learnt from a very early age about different cultures, religions and countries as there were so different nationalities in my class at school. I think that’s what sparked my love for all things travel.
I started this blog last year along side my Instagram account. It’s my little corner of the internet where I can show you behind the scenes of the photos I post on Instagram, write reviews about the hotels i’ve stayed in, talk about the products i’m loving and post some of the zillions of photos I take on a daily basis.
I’m a real girly girl that loves all things pink, dresses, make up and I spend far too much time buying skincare that I can’t afford but i’ll also be the first to cliff dive, climb a tree or roll around in mud. I love my dog like he’s my baby, going on long roadtrips, R’n’B, and scary movies. Most of the time I speak my own language which is a mixture of English, Dutch and Turkish and I believe that a good cup of tea can solve pretty much anything. The beach is my happy place, I am most content when i’m splashing around underwater or collecting shells on the shore.
My 3 most frequently asked questions:
What camera do you use?
I use a Nikon d750 and my iPhone most of the time as thats the one I always have with me!
What do you edit your photos with?
Lightroom/Photoshop and my own app ‘izkiz Cam’ which is in the app store.
What does izkiz mean?
Way back when I started instagram in June 2011 I wanted a short, catchy name. It’s very random but ‘iz’ comes from the first two letters of the city I lived in at the time (Izmir) and ‘Kiz’ meaning girl in Turkish. Voilà – izkiz was born!
