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…

Dyson AirWrap Hair Styler Review – Worth your money? | AD

Advertisement info: This blog post is sponsored by QVC Beauty Deutschland. Please read disclaimer. I am not very good at doing my hair. In fact, I am so bad at doing it, I gave up on it a while ago. My hair styling routine basically consisted of: Wash it, brush it, leave it to air dry, which either turned out okay (my hair is fairly straight with just a slight wave) or didn’t work at all, in which case I fell back on a braid or chignon, which is basically…

Beauty Low Buy Year 2019 – November Update

Advertisement information: This blog post features PR-Samples/ gifted items and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I have been doing that in every Beauty Low Buy Year Update, but will stress it even more today: Some of the products I show you have been sent by PR. I did not pay for them. The brand sent them over. With no obligation for me to use them, show them or even take pictures, I might add. No contract, no money exchanged, nothing.     Why I repeat that in such an…

Monthly Recap November 2019

I am going to spare you the whole “How come the year is already over” talk today. Or any day. Because as much as I love the promise of a clean slate, I have learned long ago that new beginnings don’t always start on New Years Eve. In fact, more often they start at some random date throughout the year.     November 4th was such a random date, as it marked the beginning of a two year course I am going to take, in an attempt to get yet…

Beauty Low Buy Year 2019 – October Update

I had to look back to verify, but yes, this months Beauty Low Buy Year Update is the first in 2019 that features zero PR. All the products that I am going to show you today are things I picked up myself, some because I needed them, others because I wanted them, but all things that I am genuinely excited about!     Oh, and if I say I didn’t need things, rest assured that I will still use them, it is just that I am at a point where…
