The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution – A long time coming

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I love acids for exfoliation. I have oily, acne-prone skin. The obvious solution? Using an acid specifically targeted at oily, acne-prone skin. A no-brainer, essentially.  Why do I even talk about it?     Well, dear reader. Because this is what I used in the last months, no YEARS!

LLL Vlogs 35 – Cake and Chanel

There are some struggles with motherhood that no one really prepares you for. And I am not talking sleepless nights and complete loss of privacy here. I talk about the struggles you face when your kids develop their own taste and it is completely different to yours.     „It is a phase!“ is what people tell me, and I cling on to that hope like a drowning woman. Because right now all my daughter wants is pink, glitter and unicorns. And if you know me just a little, pink,…
