How to accept failure – 5 tips to move on

Soon they will be everywhere again – solutions, goals, whatever you call them. The clock strikes midnight, fireworks go off and everything feels shiny and new. This will be the year you finally quit smoking, the year you will get the well-deserved pay raise, the year you find your calling and the love of your life. Anything is possible when the New Year comes!     But how about now, with the old year coming to an end? How about the day you sit down to reflect on what you…

My One 24 h Anti-Aging System – AD

Advertisment: This blog post contains paid for content. All opinions are my own. Anzeige: Dieser Blogpost enthält Werbung. Meine Meinung wurde dadurch nicht beeinflusst. We all know I love trying new skincare brands, so when I got the opportunity to work with the German skincare brand “My One” by Dr. Klein on the release of their new My One 24 h Anti-Aging System, I jumped at the chance.     This blog post will give you an overview over the products, prices and claims, it is not an in-depth review…

THE INKEY LIST Collagen Serum – Names

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Unicorn tears – if a brand decides to name their products like that, they lost me as a customer for sure. I prefer a less romantic, more to the point approach, which is why I get along so very well with The Ordinary products: The name is what is inside the bottle. Fancy? No. But easy to work with for sure!     I recently learned the hard way though that seemingly straight forward names can be misleading! You see, when I…

Winter skincare tips – How to get glowing skin in winter

This blog post may contain affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. After what seems to have been the shortest fall in history, the cold and harsh winds are upon us. Cold and harsh are of course widely exaggerated if I compare my comfortable home in Heidelberg, Germany to where my brother in law lives, up North in Norway, but it is still cold enough for my skin to need special treatment.     So while I take care of body and soul with cozy knits and hot chocolate (a…

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm – Late to the party

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I don´t always publish my reviews “on time”, but this has to be the biggest delay ever. Seriously, I have been planning to write about the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm for more than six years!     Six years? Yes! See, like most of us I debated whether or not I should start a blog for quite a bit before publishing my first post. And even before I had decided on a blog name, I was sure to write about the…

Instytutum Skincare Rebranded – Is it still as good?

Products mentioned in this post are PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. It is always bitter sweet if a brand decides to invent themselves new and reformulate all their products, isn’t it? If you have been around here for a little while, you might have heard me talk about Instytutum. This Swiss brand, founded by Natalia Derkach (a fellow doctor) claims to offer “result driven skincare” and presents itself with sleek, almost clinical packaging.     You know I am all about skincare giving results, and I found quite a few products…

Monthly Recap – Blog Post Topics November 2018

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. November is done and dusted, and tomorrow will be the day I get the boxes with Christmas decoration from the basement and start randomly putting them on available surface spots. Not kidding here, I am a lost cause when it comes to decorating, no matter how much Inspiration Boards I have on Pinterest. But I am making an effort, for the kids mostly, as I want them to embrace the spirit of the season.     While we get all festive…

Indie Lee Blemish Lotion – Marriage

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Being a married couple comes with changes in a relationship. Gone are the days when I focussed on freshly shaved legs and fluttery lashes even for a Sunday morning breakfast in bed. My husband has seen my at my best, but has also seen me at my worst. After giving birth for example, or when I had a bad case of vomiting. Even worse, when the kids were vomiting and I was puked on head to toe. Ah, momlife…     How much the…

Skincare gift guide for mature skin

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. The older we become, the harder it gets to buy presents for us, I admit that. Take me as example: I try to be more minimalistic in my way of living (the emphasis being on “try” here), which rules out decorative stuff, I like to read, but get my books at our local library and already own more makeup than any sane person would ever need. So what on earth should you get me?     Events are of course a welcome surprise,…

Does blue light from our screens damage our skin?

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I love it when I get questions from you guys. Not only do they help me create content I know you’ll be interested in, but they open my eyes to topics I would probably not even have thought about. Of course I had heard about blue light affecting our sleep patterns and straining our eyes, but to be honest I never gave it much thought.     At least not until a question kept popping up here on the blog and…
