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…

Taking out the trash 17 – May Empties

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. One in, two out, that was the rule I once tried to establish. And while I think I did pretty good in terms of skincare… No, seriously! I realized I didn’t have any cleansers in my back up drawers just the other day, something that I considered impossible a year ago.     So while I think I did pretty good in terms of skincare, I still can´t seem to go through my makeup. I throw out the odd…

Taking out the trash 16 – Empties February 2018

This blogpost contains PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. When I was filming this video, I was pretty content with myself. Not only did I like the way my hair looked – call me vain, but these things can make or break a day -, but I was satisfied with having yet another batch of products finished to show you. After starting to make a conscious effort to actually finish products and not let the last bit go to waste while saving it for a special day, I felt…

Taking out the trash 15 – My December 2017 Empties

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   Did you know that on public holidays as well as on every Sunday, stores are closed in Germany? No quickly popping into town to get some food, no aimlessly wandering around looking for cute things to buy. A public holiday (or every Sunday) is a holiday for everyone. Even the people working in retail.That may change, no matter how you personally feel about it, but at the moment it is my reality.     And every year I…

Taking out the trash 14 – November Empties

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer   I took last week off work. There were numerous reasons, and the leading one surely was that I had accumulated so many extra hours over summer that I needed to loose a few. Another, really important reason though was that I wanted to get back on top of my blogging game again. After the summer holidays life was so busy, I never quite went back to my prepared and prescheduling self. And I was tired (in every sense…

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Yes, I know it is summer. Hot days, bronzed skin, effortless makeup.

Why suffocate my feed with thoughts about heavy coverage? Why plant pictures…
