New In Beauty June 2018 – 10 years Cult Beauty

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Do you like premade pick and mix bags? We had that at a fair recently, when you could choose your bag, but not what was inside. My daughter was all over it, while I was a little more hesitant. I mean, what is the point in pick and mix when you don´t get to pick?     She loved the thrill though, carefully going through her purchase, eating her favorites and offering the ones that didn´t appeal to her to her…

New In Beauty April 2018: pixi, Caudalie and more

This blogpost contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer.   Back when I first started getting into makeup, I would often raid my mothers stash. Apply her lipsticks, ruin her rouge, drench myself in her perfume – basically making a big mess. Now that I am grown up (and a blogger), things are usually the other way round.     She plays with my lipsticks, inherits my eye cream and enjoys the packages that arrive at my doorstep just as much as I do. But when I opened her…

New In Beauty March 2018 – The Ordinary, pixi and more

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   After I returned from Galtür (read more about it here), I had a lovely package waiting for me. Inside was makeup, sparkly and shiny and new. Sounds good, I hear you say. No. Better: Sounds good, I imagine you think right now.       Technically I cannot hear you, and I am not sure if anyone except me is talking to the computer screen. Mental note: Go out more! Back to topic: Sounds good, but I knew…

New In Beauty February 2018

This blogpost contains *PR-samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer February is a weird month for me. On one hand it is filled with birthday celebrations (read here), on the other hand it is a transitional month at it´s worst. Lots of people complained about January dragging on, but at least January is proper winter! I get comfort from hot chocolate, warm blankets and dark lips, all the things that make winter worthwile. Once February arrives though, I get spring fever.     I want warm sun on my face,…

LLL Vlogs 35 – Cake and Chanel

There are some struggles with motherhood that no one really prepares you for. And I am not talking sleepless nights and complete loss of privacy here. I talk about the struggles you face when your kids develop their own taste and it is completely different to yours.     “It is a phase!” is what people tell me, and I cling on to that hope like a drowning woman. Because right now all my daughter wants is pink, glitter and unicorns. And if you know me just a little, pink,…

My French Skincare Haul – and a fashion video!

Sometimes a tiny shift in plans can bring up unwanted comedy. You see, when I planned my content for September, which was long before my summer holiday started mid-august, the last prerecorded video was an Empties one (here in case you missed it). And to go with the video, I wrote a whole post on how little I was buying, how sensible and mindful I was with my shopping, yada yada yada.     Originally I had planned to upload a holiday vlog next, but then I last minute decided…

New in for Spring – Fashion and beauty haul

One thing that is very important in a relationship is sharing a passion and goals. And keeping my marriage a happy one is among my top priorities. My husband was thrilled when I announced that recently, but somehow his enthusiasm dwindled considerably when I made him sit down and watch lookbooks on You Tube.     All for the greater good, I might add. For the purpose of helping me film my latest haul, which, surprisingly, consists of fashion as well as beauty stuff.

Autumn haul and try-on and I need your help

Surprise! To all of you checking in for the Monday skincare review… I am sorry. I decided to venture out of my comfort zone, leave the ground that I feel safe on and try something new today. Something adventurous. Something I have absolutely no clue about. A fashion video!     Well, at least something like a fashion video. Please don’t expect outfit inspiration and trends. Au contraire, dear readers, I am here to ask your help.

LLL Vlogs – The Vineyard

As promised, here is Pt. 2 of our France holidays. Of course there was still a lot of food and beach involved, but I didn’t want to bore you and stuck to what was new: The vineyard. Oh, and a bit of Sephora hauling. As you do when you are in France!

Now it is back to hot tea and knit sweaters,…

New In March 2016 – I have been shopping

I know, I know. I have told you many times that my collection is overflowing, that I really need to cut back on buying new stuff and that I own more skincare than any sane person probably should.   But in my defense: I really needed to restock on some things, and I DO have another Empties video just around the corner, so… Oh well, I just did a little haul-ing. Please click below if you want to see what I got. Aktivieren Sie JavaScript um das Video zu sehen.https://youtu.be/sJmecc4w-jA
