This time I will share with you a book I picked from my Skoobe library when I was bored.

Recent Reads – “A person of interest” by Susan Choi

When I went through my bloglovin feed earlier this year, a lot of people shared their New Years Resolutions. And apart from working out and sticking to their blogging schedule, the one thing that popped up over and over again was: Read more! Whether it was one book a month, a list of classics, or, more You Tube appropriate, reading along with Essiebutton´s “Buttons Bookshelf” video series, almost everyone was entitled to reading. I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. And even though I read less…

Sneak Peak – Spring

The fact that I am back to work full swing has lead to some changes in my personal and in my blogging life. To keep up with everything and avoid too many blog-related night shifts, I decided to put my love for lists and new found discipline (it seems to be something you get on top when giving birth) to good use and start scheduling my posts way in advance. I did this before we embarked on our New Zealand adventure, as I didn’t want to have to try and…

At the same time I increased the time spend working on the blog and YouTube, which is why I have quite a bit…

The truth about Clean Beauty | Doctor Anne

It is no coincidence that I am writing this article right now. Clean Beauty and the many misinformations have been on my mind for a while, but what finally made me put finger to keyboard was the recent airing of the GOOP documentary on Netflix.     Which I, for full disclosure, haven’t seen yet and probably won’t watch anytime soon, as my time is too precious to waste on things I really don’t want to watch. I have however followed Gwyneth Paltrow and her sometimes quirky and sometimes dangerous…

pixi Retinol Eye Cream – Is it worth it?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. One of the questions you get a lot when blogging about skin care is: “Do you really think XYZ is worth all that money?”. And it is one of the hardest to answer, because it comes down to so many different (and very personal) things.     I asked myself that question recently, while I was testing the pixi Retinol Eye Cream, and compared it to my current…
