Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum – Two birds, one stone

Multitasking –  I have talked about that numerous times before. It just seems to be a recurrent thing in my life, albeit not always a successful one. Just the other day, running on 1.5 hours of sleep, I tried to multitask feeding the cat and preparing my sons breakfast at the same time.     Well… let’s just put it that way: My son would eat about anything I serve him, the cat is much more picky. Good thing I served the cat first and could quickly switch bowls before…

How to update your skincare routine for fall

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. The weather in Germany took the transition to fall very seriously. Within 24 hours we went from 32 °C and sun to heavy rain, wind and mornings with 6 °C. Needless to say I was busy changing summer bedding to thick duvets, frantically searching for the kids rain boots and getting my skincare routine in order.     Yes, I updated my skincare routine before I even updated my wardrobe (I still have my boots stored away), because #priorities.…

Monthly Recap – Blog post topics September 2018

Another Monthly Recap post so soon? Well, the last one (read here) was two weeks late and I don´t like not sticking to my self-inflicted schedule Yes, I know I could just have adapted the schedule, but that is not how I do things.     Anyway, September saw me back to work and, I am not going to lie,  struggling. The problem with being on holiday is that you are away. Which is totally the point, I get it, but leaves so much stuff waiting for you once you return,…

Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner – Double Check

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Due to the fact that I do my blog post research half German, half English, things can get a bit confusing. Different regulations depending on whether you are in Europe or in the US, different formulations of your favorite products, even slightly different names which makes SEO a nightmare –  I have seen it all.     But when I did my research for the Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner, I had to double check, because the German website read……

My favorite face masks – for the moment

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer A beauty lovers heart is fickle, and what is deeply loved one month might be gathering dust just a few weeks later. Believe me, I have been there!     But there are a few items that stay with us for longer, products we reach for over and over again, and now that fall is around the corner and I get the urge to pamper myself, I figured it would be a great time to share my favorite face masks.…

5 hacks for oily skin (that are not skincare)

Oily skin – my biggest issue ever since I was 13 years old. Well, that and acne. And the question why my thighs looked thick in pencil skirts. And why I always seem to fall for the bad guy. But not todays topic, Anne, get back on track! Over the years I have tried countless things to keep my skin balanced, from the “harsh foaming cleanser followed by alcohol toner” routine to several kitchen hacks the friend of a friend (of a friend) had amazing results with.     You Tube wasn´t a thing back then, which…

Monthly Recap: August 2018

Times are busy, and I feel like they get busier every day. Catching up with my favorite blogs daily is something I haven´t been able to do in a long while, and as I figured you are probably in the same boat, I decided to introduce the Monthly Recap series. It is meant to be an overview of all the blog posts I have written, all the videos I have uploaded and a few extra informations thrown in for good measure. To make it easier to find what you are interested in I split…

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel – Little Mermaid

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I love “The little mermaid” by Hans Christian Andersen. My parents had to read it to me countless times, even though I´d always end up in tears. Mind you, although it is what inspired Disneys “Arielle”, the original story only bares slight resemblance to that movie. It is much darker, full of death and blood and loss.     Ah, you´ve got to love the old stories, told to prepare children for the cruel and dangerous world they were facing! The little…

Doctor Duve Glowskin Glycolic Rich Cleanser

This post contains PR-samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. Given that I am a full time working mother of two, my mornings are usually pretty relaxed. And I am well aware that a morning skincare routine like mine (read here if you are curious), though already streamlined, is not possible for someone with little to no help. In case you didn´t know, we live in a shared house with my parents, as one big family, and as my parents take the kids to daycare after breakfast, I can get…

New in from pixi – The SEO dilemma

Did you know that less than a third of my readers are German? The majority comes from the UK and the US. That kind of puts me in a dilemma: I have some brand new, sparkling things from pixi to share with you in todays video. But they are only new in Germany, the UK has had them for quite a while now. So do I title this post: pixi new releases and risk people from the UK thinking it was a click bait? Or do I title it pixi…
