But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own.

Now if I have one beauty weakness… Other than red lipsticks, I mean. You can totally have two. Or maybe three.

But I digress. If I have one beauty weakness, it is anything in crayon form. My love affair with big chunky sticks started with the Clinique Chubby series a long time ago when I purchased the shade Mega Melon as a reminder of my one month road trip to Chile with Mr. Loca, and ever since I have happily collected crayons for every area of my face.

So the Chanel Rouge Crayon de Couleur Spring 2017 Collection promo picture immediately grabbed my attention. I mean, a lip crayon and a big, happy smile, what else do you need to get into spring mode?

We get the glow: Week one – The Recap

We are way into week two already as I write this, but I won’t give anything away. This is about week one, and as much as I want to tell you all about my struggles, I will exercise self-control and stay true to the timeline.

 

We get the Glow – Week One Recap

 

This is about week one, and let me tell you, it was a hard week. At least for me. My mother wasn’t affected much. She has always been the one with the healthier eating habits.

But for me, everything Madeleine wrote about the withdrawal symptoms you could experience came true. Everything. Not that this should have surprised me, I knew I had fallen into some really bad eating habits when it came to snacking, but still. Feeling it is a whole new level of knowledge, I assure you.

LLL Vlogs – Looking back at Christmas

I know I am late, sharing with you the time leading up to Christmas now that it is already 2017 and we don’t want to be reminded of the countless amounts of cookies we had or mulled wine we consumed.

 

LLL Vlogs – Looking back at Christmas

 

But I promise, it is not all Christmas lights and presents, it is basically my life before and after getting back to work and a little update on my skincare and makeup picks.

We get the glow – The introduction

Remember when I announced I was starting a series on You Tube with one of my favorite persons?

Well, today is the day. And the person I refer to is … drumroll… my mom.

 

We get the glow

 

The reason she agreed to join me in front of the camera is a six weeks program we are going to start. The six weeks „Get the glow“ plan from Madeleine Shaws book.

Skincare Favorites 2016 – Welcome to 2017

Happy New Year!

2017, brand new and full of promises. And full of new discoveries, skincare and makeup wise I hope.

 

2016 Skincare Favorites

 

To be quite honest I don’t get the whole New Year New Me stuff, I like to make changes whenever I feel like doing them, not wait for a specific date. And my major changes have already happened, like going back to working full time, there is nothing that exciting in my near future.

So let´s take the time to look back and reflect on skincare, which is my favorite thing to do anyway.

Makeup Favorites 2016 – I can´t do short

I really was determined. You see, I was planning on doing a blogging break over Christmas, so I could finally relax. Just prepare some new posts.

And film a favorites video.

 

 

A short one, covering makeup and skincare.

But it seems I can´t do short. After rambling on for hours and then trying to edit it down, I surrendered. And accepted the fact that I had to do two videos. With two blogposts. And fit them into an already packed blogging and vlogging schedule.

Taking out the trash X – December Empties

My first ever You Tube video (linked here if you really want to see) was a „Taking out the trash“ video. And it was almost one year ago that I set it live. So to make up for my (obviously missed) You Tube anniversary, here is my December Empties video.

 

December Empties

 

Honestly, I am rubbish at remembering anniversaries. I missed my blogging one for the second time this August and I don’t think I will ever remember to do a special post or something similar like I see on all the other blogs.

Oh well, I am going to celebrate everyday that I manage to keep up with it, I guess, and just go with the flow.

Three different ways to wear glitter

I kind of started a mini series earlier this spring, trying to make a seasonal trend work by creating three different looks with it.

One very wearable even for the less adventurous makeup lover.

One bold enough to satisfy a makeup aficionados heart on a day to day basis.

And one that I would personally refrain from wearing to the office. Which says a lot, I tend to wear whatever I fancy.

And when I asked you lovely lot in my latest „Three looks“ video (watch here if you are curious) which trend I should try for the winter/holiday season, the voting was unanimous: Glitter!

Quite honestly, the Dior Splendor Holiday 2016 makeup wasn´t much of a challenge, makeup wise. Nor was it super unique. But I have done the Dior Holiday look every year since starting the series (here and here), and I have a weakness for dark eyes and red lips, so I decided to stick with the tradition.

And recreating the makeup did prove a challenge after all: The black eyeshadow stick, the one I bought for my first ever „Inspired by“ blogpost, did not work like I had hoped it would. Even with lots of layers, it still looked a little patchy, and it did not stay put too well. So if you have any black eyeshadow recommendations, I am all ears.
