Month in Review January 2019

The first month of 2019 has passed already, and as always it was a particularly grey and gloomy one here in Germany.

We did have snow, but it only lasted briefly, despite a week of bitter cold. Chilly winds, biting frost, you get the idea. Now, it is still Southern Germany, so I may exaggerate a little, but stay with me, it will help set the mood.

And in this cold and chill (and tiny bits of snow) I took off my coat and posed for some pictures in the forest. You may have seen some of them on my Instagram already (@lindalibraloca), but I figured they’d provide viewing pleasure while I sum up the blog posts I wrote for January 2019.

Low-Buy 2019 – Here is how I do it

It is funny that as soon as a New Year starts, new buzz words appear out of nowhere. My top three so far? Pollution, prebiotics and low-buy!

And while I won´t go into detail on pollution and prebiotics (both skincare related) as I have dedicated videos planned on those topics, I figured I would join in on Low-Buy 2019 and tell you how I plan to do it.

In all honesty, I have been on a Low-Buy for more than three years already. Ever since I went on maternity leave with my daughter and my disposable income suddenly reduced dramatically, I tried to shop my stash both for makeup and skincare.

And, shock horror, this has seen me through three years now with still having unopened products in my drawers. Which is obviously fine with most makeup, but slowly gets problematic with skincare – even unopened most items are expired by now.

December Empties 2018 – Taking out the trash 20

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 not sure now if it is any less cumbersome to listen to me talk about the 24 empty products, but I´ll just continue blabbing on. Seeing that I managed to keep the video under ten minutes I am positive it won’t be too bad.
