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 the Netherlands. I attended International schools 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 most frequently 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 England in West Sussex.
What camera do you use?
I use a Nikon d750, Sony a7riii and for videos I mostly my iPhone as thats the one I always have with me!
What do you edit your photos with?
My own ‘izkiz’ app which has filters and overlays perfect for all your photos. It’s available on the app store, or download it HERE
What does izkiz mean?
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 in Turkey that i was living in then and ‘Kiz’ meaning girl in Turkish. Voilà – izkiz was born!
How can you afford to travel so much?
A lot of my travel is sponsored by a brand, hotel or tourism board and transportation, food, hotel, activities are always included.
