October Empties 2018 – Taking out the trash 19

This blogpost contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. The drama with the You Tube thumbnail… I swear taking the thumbnail takes me longer than filming the actual video itself! Especially now that I´ve learned that thumbnails with faces have a higher CTR than the ones showing products only.   CTR, for those of you wondering, means click-through-rate and stands for the number of people that click on the video after seeing the thumbnail. I am not sure why my face would help in selling a video, but I do…

Taking out the trash 14 – November Empties

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer   I took last week off work. There were numerous reasons, and the leading one surely was that I had accumulated so many extra hours over summer that I needed to loose a few. Another, really important reason though was that I wanted to get back on top of my blogging game again. After the summer holidays life was so busy, I never quite went back to my prepared and prescheduling self. And I was tired (in every sense…

Sephora Rouge Lipstick Cream & Shine –

I keep telling Mr. Loca that a girl needs to have options. Which is why, despite the fact that I own more lipsticks that I could possibly use in a life span, I keep adding to my collection. That is, of course, preposterous, if I keep doing what I am doing at the moment. Because whenever I am offered options, I choose the same colors over and over again. Which is okay, because they suit me. And which is not okay, because I am officially stuck in a makeup rut…

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…

First Impressions Sephora Makeup

After showing you my latest makeup picks I got the request to review the Sephora brand makeup. And of course I listened and put all the products I own to the test.     So here are my first impressions, with pictures taken throughout the day and my final thoughts after ten hours of weartime.

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,…

July 2016 Favorites

As July is almost over, it is time for another favorites post. With the upcoming move (it is actually moving day today!) and the incredible heatwave we had, makeup had to be quick and minimal. Not that I am complaining about the heat, not in the slightest. I feel a lot more energetic and happy when the sun is out, even though our current flat with the big window fronts was probably not the best place to be throughout the day.     As far as skincare is concerned, I…

Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Face Compact – One for summer

While everyone knows and loves Sephora as a place to shop, I feel like their own makeup line doesn’t get all the love it deserves. Of course, not all of the products they do are outstanding, but there are a few that are well worth checking out.     My biggest problem with Sephora though is the access. You know, I like to feel makeup before I buy it. Smell it, touch it, admire the packaging… The whole sensual experience. Problem is: there is no Sephora in Germany. So I…
