Whenever I hear Queen of Hungary, I immediately think of Sissi, the movies. They might not be very popular outside of Germany, but here they were a must see when I was young and without fail are repeated every Christmas.
Now Sissi was technically the empress of Hungary, and her story has nothing to do with Omorovicza, but what can I do? Childhood influences have the better on us for the rest of our lives.
The Queen of Hungary face mist I am talking about today was inspired by a perfume made in the 14th century. For Elisabeth, Queen of Hungary. And if it is fit for a queen, how could I resist? But does it stand the test of modern times? Let´s see.

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!
And even though it was 35 degree out there when I sat down to film, it was time for the Fall campaigns. That one is the one my husband chose. For it´s natural look. Ah, men, how little do they know…
And here is how my look turned out. And no, I did not dye my hair. I am going to stay blonde.
With summer waving it´s Goodbye and fall slowly approaching, it is time to take a step back and face your summer sins. And I am not talking the one too many Mojitos with the cute guy at the beach bar.
Honestly, I am not. I am a married mother of two, things like that are completely alien to me.
No, I am talking the sun and the salt and the late nights out that result in a lack of proper skincare. And way too little face masks. These are the sins you will need to address, now that seasons are changing.
Breakouts and hyper pigmentation or dry patches and dull skin, both are possible. But fear not, there is a cure for every sin. At least in skincare.
The Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex promises to tackle dryness and dullness, so let´s see how it performed.
When I started making videos, I had no idea how different my makeup would look on camera as opposed to real life.
Of course I had heard people mention it, but as always you only ever really believe the things you experience yourself. So after a lot of trial and error, all documented on camera of course, I finally have settled for a routine I am content with.
August 2016 will forever be remembered as the month of boxes. And living out of boxes. And falling over boxes. You get the drill. But there still was some stuff, mostly the already unboxed stuff (ha, how many time can I say boxes in one paragraph?), that I enjoyed using.
So here they are: My August 2016 Favorites. Barely any makeup, some skincare and a lot of random stuff. But sometimes life is just that. Random.
To some people, something foreign will always be superior to the things they can get right next door. And some people go as far as claiming something is foreign even if it isn’t, to make it sound even fancier.
Case in point a woman I saw before general anesthesia many years ago. We were talking about her medication when she told me about something she was taking for her diabetes. I had honestly never heard of the product before, and she claimed that her physician had it imported all the way from France, so I had her write down the name. When I saw it written, it dawned on me what was happening: She refused to take „regular“ pills, so her doctor gave her a pretty standard medication, but pronounced it French. Believing it was more exotic than what her friends were getting, she gladly took it.
Now Resultime is a French brand, no false claims here. But the fact is a major selling point as well. After all, the French can do no wrong! So lets see if the Resultime 5 expertise eye cream convinced me.
