September Empties – Taking out the trash 18

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. I promise this is the last time you need to sit with me through sound issues. See, in an attempt to be the most efficient I could be I bulk filmed a few videos. It was only when I got down to editing, quite some time later, that I realized the sound was completely messed up.     In all four videos. And as per usual I was so late with editing, I simply couldn’t refilm them! Or, in…

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…

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…

October 2016 – Favorites and Recap

October done and dusted, and things are getting cold here. Outside, that is. And inside, when our heating was broken. But it is fixed again. One thing I did not include in the October recap, but rest assured, it was on of my favorite things happening. The fixing, not the breaking.     I seem to have lost track here. Back to the video: My October Favorites and some other stuff. As it goes.

Taking out the trash IX – Empties

As I mention at the end of the video, that was supposed to be my September Empties. Yeah, I know.     In my defense, I do have a ton of video ideas and barely any time to film and edit them, so I guess I will leave the “monthly” empties schedule and sneak them in as a Sunday bonus video whenever I find the time. What better way to spend a Sunday then talking about trash, am I right?

Inspired by MAC Spellbinder Collection Holiday 2016

If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…” series, click here for an explanation. But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own. Dressing up and awkward posing included! Now it is already time for the holiday collections, and I picked one that could maybe work for Halloween: The MAC Spellbinder Collection Holiday 2016.   At least I thought it might work for Halloween, but after seeing it on the full face instead of…

September 2016 Favorites – Still a beauty blog, promised!

Yes, I know. This is called a beauty blog. And again, I only have one makeup item to show you in my favorites. My excuse? I don’t really have one.     But I try to make it up by rambling on about skincare and life in general, and I promise I am all settled now and will play more with my makeup throughout next month. So here they are, without further ado: My September 2016 Favorites. With bloopers.

Taking out the trash VII – July 2016 Empties

After filming this months empties video I realized that I seem to have separation anxiety when it comes to lip products. I mean, seriously, a six year old lipgloss? That is gross!     But no longer, four makeup items had to go, and I did finish some skincare as well. So without further ado, my July 2016 Empties, along with mini reviews and, of course, bloopers at the end!

June 2016 Favorites

Another month, another favorites post. Ain´t that how it goes? I will tell you what was not my favorite this month in the post here: The weather!     You see, it was raining pretty much all June, and with June 21th coming along, I knew the days were going to get shorter. Now I am all about those long, warm and light summer evenings spend outdoors with friends and a cold drink, and if that didn´t happen before the nights are getting longer again, I feel cheated. But enough moaning…

Taking out the trash VI – June 2016 Empties

Empties and watermelon – is there anything else you need for a chilled summer evening? I don’t think so. This months version features a lot of Antipodes products, which brings back memories of our road trip to New Zealand. And of course turns up the ancient question: Why does everything always have to run out at the same time?
