Beauty Low Buy 2019 – May Update

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and PR-Samples (gifted items). I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. If I tell you now that the amount of PR I receive almost tripled since I started doing my Beauty Low Buy 2019, would you believe me? Not that I am complaining, I love the surprise packages arriving at my door step and it still is an amount that allows me to review everything for you (even though I am very careful with what I put on my…

Monthly Recap May 2019

Let´s address the elephant in the room first: I changed my blog layout. I had it on my to do list for a while now, because it had come to my attention that my old theme wasn´t mobile friendly and quite a lot of you were reading from their phones. Which, by the way, I totally don´t understand. I hate reading anything on my phone that has more than one paragraph, I much prefer my laptop for that. I might use my tablet if I am going “off the grid”…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – April Update

Advertisement information: This blog post features PR-Samples (gifted items) and uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I admit I thought this months Low Buy Year 2019 Update would be much worse than it actually turned out to be. You might know that I am a huge Game of Thrones fan (I even read all the books before anyone ever thought about turning it into a series, and believe me, while the series is great, the books are epic!). And you might also know…

Beauty Empties April 2019

Advertisement info: This blog post features PR-Samples and uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write the blog post or film the video. Please read disclaimer. Do you enjoy reading about the trends in blogging? I admit I do. Not because I think about adapting my content, it is just part of my nosey nature to be interested in that. It seems that the beauty community is taking a (long overdue) turn towards sustainability in 2019, which leads to Beauty Empties videos and Decluttering becoming more popular…

How to create a Spring Capsule Wardrobe (if you have zero fashion sense)

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Welcome to part one of my Spring Capsule Wardrobe journey. Today we are going to talk about preparation and planning, basically the first things you need to do if you want to create a capsule wardrobe.     And you know what? The most important thing you need to do is to actually start. Sounds obvious, but in my case it took around two years to finally take that step. Yes, you read that right: I first thought about…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – March Update

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features gifted items (PR-Samples). Please read disclaimer. Now that we reached the end of March, I am pretty chuffed that I managed to stick to what I started in the New Year: Going on a Beauty Low Buy for 2019. Yes, it might only be three months, and after a great January 2019 the February was kind of a very bad exception, but still, how many New Years Resolutions make it that far?     After all, it is the budget…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – February Update

Advertisement info: This blog post features PR-Samples * and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Beauty Low Buy? Which Beauty Low Buy? Now that did not go well. To be fair, I didn’t expect it to. It was my birthday month and I wanted to treat myself, and on top of that I needed to repurchase a few things.     And what better time to repurchase stuff then when you have gift cards and special birthday discounts? See, I was basically obliged to go shopping. I should probably rename this…

Beauty Empties February 2019

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. A few days ago I had a conversation with Lindsey (who blogs at Sustainably Savvy about green beauty and her zero waste journey) about the “right amount” of products to include into a Beauty Empties video. I mean, you basically need to get people interested in you talking about trash, that is hard work!     On top of that you don´t want to show too many products – I mean, I love watching empties, but if I see the video…

December Empties 2018 – Taking out the trash 20

This blog post uses *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. My first ever video was an Empties one. It was shortly after Christmas, I was seven months pregnant and lighting, sound and setup were awful.     It is still live though, and I am happy I decided back then, after much uhm-ing and ah-ing, that I wanted to film. Empty containers are better shown than photographed, at least in my opinion, and having a written text on 24 different products would probably prove cumbersome to read. I am…

September Empties – Taking out the trash 18

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. I promise this is the last time you need to sit with me through sound issues. See, in an attempt to be the most efficient I could be I bulk filmed a few videos. It was only when I got down to editing, quite some time later, that I realized the sound was completely messed up.     In all four videos. And as per usual I was so late with editing, I simply couldn’t refilm them! Or, in…
