Monthly Blog Post Recap February 2020

February is the month of love, everyone will tell you so, and I couldn’t agree more. Not because I buy into the whole Valentines Day consumerism thing (we don’t celebrate and never have), but because we have two very important birthdays in our family. The first one (look at me being all humble) is mine, and nothing starts the month of love better than having people around you to celebrate your birth and give you presents. Not that I care too much about presents *cough*, but a little celebration never…

Monthly Blog Recap – January 2020

January has come to an end, and I for once didn’t feel it dragged as much as many people complained about on social media. But then again social media is the place we all go to complain, I am totally guilty of that too, sharing close ups of my zits on InstaStories (isn’t it glamorous?). I think the main reason why January was a quick month for me was that I had quite a few events to attend, both for work and for leisure. Although I hesitate to call it…

Monthly Recap November 2019

I am going to spare you the whole “How come the year is already over” talk today. Or any day. Because as much as I love the promise of a clean slate, I have learned long ago that new beginnings don’t always start on New Years Eve. In fact, more often they start at some random date throughout the year.     November 4th was such a random date, as it marked the beginning of a two year course I am going to take, in an attempt to get yet…

Monthly Recap October 2019

Now that I look back at the month of October, I realize it was actually quite balanced in terms of work and play. I am getting in the swing of things with my new job and no longer feel as if I am drowning in paperwork, which gives me the mental capacity to focus on other things like posing as X-Wing Pilot. Or doing Tribal Fusion.     „Diffusion“ (the ensemble I am part of) went on stage and as I type this I just returned from a day long…

Monthly Recap September 2019

In theory, September should have been a very relaxed month for me. I mean, it did start with me being on vacation in France, very relaxing indeed, and ended with me being away for a whole weekend camping (actually LARP, for those of you familiar with that term). Yes, that was cold at night, but I think it was the first time since my daughter was born that I spend two full days without my phone.     So why do I say „in theory“? Because in between things got…

Monthly Recap August 2019

How can yet another month have passed by already? I know it is common to complain about how time flies when looking back at the month behind you, but August really went in the blink of an eye. Which may have to do with the fact that upon writing this there is still a lot of August left, but I am leaving for France tomorrow (yes, another holiday) and I want to have the blog post ready to go live without having to worry about it.     And that…

Monthly Recap July 2019

A lot has changed since I posted my last Monthly Recap (read here), both for my blog and in my personal life. Time to bring you up to speed, don´t you think? Blog stuff first: I took (well, am still taking) the Zero to Influence You Tube Bootcamp to help my channel gain momentum and reach the audience I really wanted to reach: People that want quick and honest skincare reviews as well as information about how skin and skin care works. And while I thought I already worked hard…

Monthly Recap June 2019

It feels a little weird to type this post, because it is far from being the end of June. In fact, it is June 14th, a little early to look back at an entire month, don’t you think? But as you read this, we are on holiday, touring the South of Sweden with a Camper van, and I have for numerous reasons decided to slow down things on the blog here for that period of time. You might have noticed that I did not upload to my You Tube channel…

Monthly Recap May 2019

Let´s address the elephant in the room first: I changed my blog layout. I had it on my to do list for a while now, because it had come to my attention that my old theme wasn´t mobile friendly and quite a lot of you were reading from their phones. Which, by the way, I totally don´t understand. I hate reading anything on my phone that has more than one paragraph, I much prefer my laptop for that. I might use my tablet if I am going “off the grid”…

Monthly Recap April 2019

You know what they say about April weather in Germany? That it is temperamental. You´ll always get a mixed bag, ranging from snow to wind to a sudden heat wave. I didn´t know that was true for everything in your life though, not only for the weather. April surely handed me a mixed bag of events!     Let´s start with the enjoyable part: We took the kids on a holiday to the mountains, to Nesselwang in beautiful Allgäu, on a farm with animals for some hands on experience. My…
