Fall Favorites 2017 – Being unique

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   Are we ever as unique as we like to think? Most of us, especially those that have any kind of creative outlet online, like to think that their content is fresh and special and easily distinguable from others. We put “our own twist” on things, have a theme in our pictures and invent fancy names for even fancier blog post series. And then, one day, we take a step back and realize we are doing what everyone around…

July 2017 Favorites and Recap

Somehow it seems like everyone is on holiday right now. Is it that time of year already? The time were people are gathering at the beaches, cocktail in one hand, book in the other and care about nothing else than tan lines and evening plans?     It certainly feels like that when I am clicking away on my keyboard in an eerily quiet office or when I look at my suddenly quiet bloglovin feed. I have to admit my mind has been occupied as well. Not holiday, not yet,…

June 2017 – Favorites and Recap

I have to admit that there were times last month that I felt pretty overwhelmed. Life was very busy and hectic, and while it was all for great reasons, it was a little exhausting as well.     Soon after I uploaded my video on how to handle kids, a job and the blog (watch here if you haven´t already), I got promoted. Which is awesome and a great opportunity, but also a lot of work, given that I had to very quickly pick up a whole new topic. So…

May 2017 Favorites and Recap

It seems to become a tradition that I start my Favorites posts mentioning one thing that would have made it into my monthly recap for sure, had I known it already when filming. Same thing happened with my May 2017 Favorites and Recap : I had a day off work on the 23rd, managed to sit down to film AND edit this video, and the next day, casually browsing beauty blogs as you do, I learned that Sephora is coming to Germany.     Really, it is, with a set…

April 2017 – Favorites and Recap

Blogging has given me quite a few surprises since I started. And I am not going to tune in to the great community chorus here, or talk about the many things it taught me. Or the late nights and weird face paintings. No, I am going to share with you something that I never thought would ever happen.     I got an eMail. And it was written by a cat. Not just any cat, but a fabulous and tech savvy cat that lives pretty close to me. And that…

March Favorites 2017 – New beginnings

If you remember my last Favorites post (read here if you missed it), you know I promised change. And change there is, but if it was for better or worse, only time and you, dear readers, can tell. Or should it be “Dear Watchers”, given it is a You Tube video? Are you the watchers on the Wall, sworn to defend humankind from boring and repetitive content? And can you tell I am really looking forward to the last season of Game of Thrones airing soon?     But wait,…

February Favorites 2017 – Where do we go from here?

You may have noticed there wasn´t a Favorites post last month. Quite frankly, after doing my Favorites for 2016 (see Makeup and Skincare here in case you missed them), I felt like there wasn´t much to report. So I settled for February Favorites and a short break, mentally preparing to have a really big list of things to mention.     Turns out, that isn´t the case. I do have quite a few makeup bits, but only one skincare item (shocking, I know) and I completely forgot about the lifestyle…

Skincare Favorites 2016 – Welcome to 2017

Happy New Year! 2017, brand new and full of promises. And full of new discoveries, skincare and makeup wise I hope.     To be quite honest I don’t get the whole New Year New Me stuff, I like to make changes whenever I feel like doing them, not wait for a specific date. And my major changes have already happened, like going back to working full time, there is nothing that exciting in my near future. So let´s take the time to look back and reflect on skincare, which is…

Makeup Favorites 2016 – I can´t do short

I really was determined. You see, I was planning on doing a blogging break over Christmas, so I could finally relax. Just prepare some new posts. And film a favorites video.     A short one, covering makeup and skincare. But it seems I can´t do short. After rambling on for hours and then trying to edit it down, I surrendered. And accepted the fact that I had to do two videos. With two blogposts. And fit them into an already packed blogging and vlogging schedule.

November 2016 – Favorites and Recap

November itself was a pretty uneventful month for me. It went by very quickly, and at the same time some days seemed to drag along, which is probably due to the fact that I did not do that much fun stuff.     It was all about preparation so I could have a little Christmas break from blogging despite starting to work again in December, and on top of that it was quite rainy, leaving me to the challenge of keeping two kids entertained indoors. I really did my best,…
