Have a cup of tea with me: The Inkey List | Doctor Anne

Just to make that clear from the start: This is not a post about the skincare benefits of tea. It is not a drama thing in terms of “spilling the tea” either, I much prefer to stay away from any drama.     But a few things happened recently that I wanted to share my thoughts about, the most pressing (but not the only one), being the recent controversial discussion around The Inkey List and the term “Clean science”. The Inkey List has been featured on my channel numerous times…

Book reviews of everything I have read in 2020 (so far) | Recent Reads

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I know this is something you are not used to seeing on here (even though I did share book reviews back in 2015, all of which you can find by searching Recent Reads), but I do try to make time to read more, and I know many of you are too and now that I am on holiday, I feel like I am getting there!     My goal for 2020 are 14 books (the average pledged on Goodreads is 58!),…

Monthly Recap May 2020 – What has been happening? Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: Some of the items mentioned are *PR Samples (gifted items). No affiliate links. After weeks of lamenting about the “new normal”, it seems I have moved on to the phase where you start adapting it into my life. I still work a lot more hours than I used to, but I do have occasional days off and even a few weeks of holiday in July. At the same time I increased the time spend working on the blog and YouTube, which is why I have quite a bit…

Monthly Recap April 2020 – Far from normal | Doctor Anne

April is gone and with it another month ruled by social distancing and insecurities about the future. I know many of my readers visit me from countries outside Germany, and with all the different regulations in place it is hard to keep up with who is allowed to do what in which time.     In Germany for example we are able to visit shops and go for walks, as long as it is not in groups and we keep our distance. In France on the other hand, going for…

Monthly Recap March 2020 – Where the heck have I been?

Last month was a rather unusual one, I guess we can all agree on that. With Covid19 spreading quickly all over the world and many countries going in lockdown, I don’t think anyone was able to do business as usual.   Back when I decided to leave the hospital and join the Public Health team, I would have never thought that I would ever experience times like these. For the last few weeks me and my coworkers have been working nonstop to #flattenthecurve. At the time that I write this,…

Monthly Blog Post Recap February 2020

February is the month of love, everyone will tell you so, and I couldn’t agree more. Not because I buy into the whole Valentines Day consumerism thing (we don’t celebrate and never have), but because we have two very important birthdays in our family. The first one (look at me being all humble) is mine, and nothing starts the month of love better than having people around you to celebrate your birth and give you presents. Not that I care too much about presents *cough*, but a little celebration never…

First Beauty Empties of 2020 – What will I repurchase? | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I admit that I am surprised that I already used up enough products to film another Beauty Empties video for you, the first in 2020. After all I just shared the products I had used up in December! I think the main reason (other than being mindful and consistent of course) was that I had a few similar products open at the same time, because I…

My Low Buy Year 2019 – Finale

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. In January 2019 I declared starting a Low Buy Year (read about the rules and reasons here) and vowed to keep track of my expenses, both in terms of what I purchased myself and what I got sent by PR that I would have otherwise bought eventually.     To be honest, I am still not happy with the way I handle the PR side of things. I…

Monthly Blog Recap – January 2020

January has come to an end, and I for once didn’t feel it dragged as much as many people complained about on social media. But then again social media is the place we all go to complain, I am totally guilty of that too, sharing close ups of my zits on InstaStories (isn’t it glamorous?). I think the main reason why January was a quick month for me was that I had quite a few events to attend, both for work and for leisure. Although I hesitate to call it…

Skincare products I have finished – December Empties 2019

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I don’t have many traditions for this blog, but ending the year with an Empties post is one of them.     Although I have to admit it is not exactly a blog tradition, but more born out of YouTube, where I uploaded my first video inDecember 2015, talking about the skincare products I had finished. The video is still up on my channel, should you want to…
