Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment – Pickup lines

Back in the days when I was still going out, I had my fair share of bad pickup lines. You see, being blonde, tall and obviously loving makeup, I attracted a certain kind of men. Men that usually didn’t expect me to have more interest in politics than handbags. Men that thought: „Hello Sexy!“ was actually a great way to start a conversation. (Disclaimer: It isn’t!)

Well, these days are long gone. If I was to go out right now, I would be much more likely offered a chair than a drink, let alone be the target of a pickup line of any quality.

So I was reminded of old times when I opened my pot of the Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment and the signature „Hello Sexy!“ greeted me.

My labor and delivery story

No breaking news: I had a baby in early March. And you are probably tired of me banging on about it.

But many of you asked for more background information, so I figured I would film a little video, taking you with me on the journey to the hospital and into the delivery room.

 

My labor and delivery story

 

Well, not really into, just narratively into, because

a) I don’t think anyone would want to see the bloody details and

b) I had many other things on my mind that did not include picking up a camera.

ahuhu Amino Intensive Repair Shampoo – Comfort scents

Way before my love affair with scented candles began, I loved the beeswax kind you could buy around Christmas.

The warm color they had, the beautiful light and of course the smell of honey once you burned them, everything made me feel cozy and relaxed.

Now that scented candles have taken over, I rarely buy one of them anymore, but I stumbled upon the scent in another product recently, way unexpected.

Ahuhu organic hair cares Amino Intensive Repair Shampoo, promising to deep repair damaged hair, has a beautiful golden color and smells like honey, which means I am in for relaxing showers.

But that shouldn’t be the only benefit from a shampoo, so let´s see if it does anything else.

Taking out the trash V – May Empties

Another month, another empties video. This time it is a little bit of everything: Makeup and skincare as well as hair and body care. Oh, and a perfume!

Not that I am going through all these products in one month, mind you, but I am making an effort to finish my stuff before using new one. And as I felt like I needed to stop rambling for ten minutes plus about my trash, I made different piles to film different videos in the time coming.

 

 

Yes, I sat there organizing my trash. And planning to use this trash in the upcoming months. This is either art or very disturbing. I will leave it to you to judge.

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Maximum Volume Mascara – My Easter miracle

A little disclaimer first: I don’t want to belittle anyones religious belief and I am well aware that the miracle regarding Easter is very important for any Christian and has nothing to do with petty makeup discoveries.

But when I decided to put on some face paint for a dinner outing with my recently grown family and rummaged through my top drawer in search of a mascara, I discovered an unopened tube of Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Maximum Volume Mascara (in black, despite the name), and I have honestly no idea how it got there.

Now you may argue that this only shows my lack of sleep and my abundance of beauty products, but despite both being absolutely true, I usually am pretty organized and know quite well what I purchased and when.

So the discovery of a mascara unknown of was a miracle to me.

Inspired by … Jill Stuart Summer 2016

If you are not familiar with the „Inspired by…“ series, click here for an explanation.
But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own.
Dressing up and awkward posing included!

This month I really wanted to do something with a hat (silly idea, as it turned out), and something blue, so I chose the Jill Stuart Summer 2016 ad for it´s beachy and summery vibes.

Now I had forgotten that I lost my white hat last year, so I had to make do with a big straw hat. Plus the hand positioning turned out more challenging than I would have thought.

But see for yourself, upon common request I added some outtakes at the end that explain what I mean.

Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream

When I was a child, I dreamed of having a twin. That was of course inspired by films and books and included daydreams of funny pranks as well as the romantic illusion that having someone that looked like you was similar to having a soulmate.

Growing up I embraced my uniqueness and learned by observation that just because someone looked similar that didn´t necessarily mean your thoughts were similar as well.

So it is safe to say that ever since I entered adolescence, I prefer things to be easily distinguishable. And that applies to my sisters and me as well as to my creams and lotions.

Because when I received a sample size of the Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream, I almost chucked it in the bin (the friends and family bin, obviously), because I figured I had tested it before. Packaging, smell and name were way too close to the Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturizer (Review here) for me to immediately realize it was a whole different product.

But luckily I discovered my mistake and used my face once again for testing purposes.
