Beauty Low Buy 2019 – April Update

I admit I thought this months Low Buy Year 2019 Update would be much worse than it actually turned out to be. You might know that I am a huge Game of Thrones fan (I even read all the books before anyone ever thought about turning it into a series, and believe me, while the series is great, the books are epic!). And you might also know…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – March Update

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features gifted items (PR-Samples). Please read disclaimer. Now that we reached the end of March, I am pretty chuffed that I managed to stick to what I started in the New Year: Going on a Beauty Low Buy for 2019. Yes, it might only be three months, and after a great January 2019 the February was kind of a very bad exception, but still, how many New Years Resolutions make it that far?     After all, it is the budget…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – February Update

Advertisement info: This blog post features PR-Samples * and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Beauty Low Buy? Which Beauty Low Buy? Now that did not go well. To be fair, I didn’t expect it to. It was my birthday month and I wanted to treat myself, and on top of that I needed to repurchase a few things.     And what better time to repurchase stuff then when you have gift cards and special birthday discounts? See, I was basically obliged to go shopping. I should probably rename this…

Decluttering my nail polish collection

I understand it might seem different, but I have never watched an episode of Mari Kondo on Netflix in my whole life. I haven´t even read her book, although I have considered gifting it to certain people I share a roof with several times.     The impulse to declutter my surroundings hasn´t been triggered externally, I have always had it. Not that I am a minimalist, but I prefer organized places and space around me. My mother might now think back at me growing up and strongly disagree, so…

Low Buy 2019 – The first month

This blog post uses affiliate links and features PR-Samples, which classifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. So, that low buy thing… How has it been going so far? Well, thank you for asking! Pretty good, actually. I admit I feel a little envious about all of you that finished a No Buy January and now are back in the game, credit card in hand, but if I am completely honest, I don´t  really need anything. (Read about my Low Buy 2019 rules here)     Which is actually not entirely true: I…

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…

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…
