Indian Summer and some Guerlain goodies

They say anticipation is sometimes better than the actual event.

I find that to be especially true regarding anything weather dependent. How many times have you looked forward to summer barbecues outside and ended up inside because of hail and storm? How many times have you dreamt about snow ball fights in a winter wonderland only to shuffle through muddy pools in constant rain?

I know I have been disappointed numerous times, so when Flanconi (an online beauty store) reached out to me and asked for an Indian summer look, I decided to take matters into my own hands. It may be wet and cold outside, but here on the blog we´ll have all the gold and orange we long for.

And what can I say, after I finished filming the sun decided to make an appearance and I was able to actually shoot outdoors! I am not going to jinx it, but if we get a prolonged period of beautiful weather here in Germany now, I will claim magical makeup skills.

If not, this Indian Summer look will see me through the disappointment.

Faby Ego Collection Fall/Winter 2017 – Yolo

Many of you may know it already, but almost a year ago I switched jobs. I used to work as a senior physician on an ICU, now I work in Public Health.

There were many reasons for this decision, family and being there for the kids the main one, but I am not going to lie: Being able to paint my nails whenever I felt like it was at least helping in making it easier.

When you work on ICU (or anywhere in the hospital), your nails have to be short and bare. Which means I could only paint my nails on a Friday night and had to take the polish off on Sunday. If I didn´t work the weekend, that is.

Now I am free to paint my nails whenever I like as the only thing stopping me is the need to use my hands. For the kids, for blog work, for eating crisps while watching Netflix.

Latest on my paws? The Faby Ego Collection for Autumn/Winter 2017 (*PR-Sample).
