Monthly Recap: August 2018

Times are busy, and I feel like they get busier every day. Catching up with my favorite blogs daily is something I haven´t been able to do in a long while, and as I figured you are probably in the same boat, I decided to introduce the Monthly Recap series. It is meant to be an overview of all the blog posts I have written, all the videos I have uploaded and a few extra informations thrown in for good measure. To make it easier to find what you are interested in I split…

Norway Travel Vlog 2018 – Come along

Back in July we rented a camper van, packed the kids and started driving. Up north was the goal, to visit my brother in law that lives in Norway, Helgeland (in Mo i Rana, to be precise, but barely anyone has heard of it). We had no reservations, no fixed itinerary, just a vague idea of the route we were going to take.     Finally back to the way we travelled before the kids, without obligations, just following the road. Well, not exactly back to the way we travelled…

Life Update: Why I am taking a break – LLL Vlogs 52

When I uploaded this vlog to You Tube, I did of course add tags. I mean, even if this is just a rambly video of me looking pretty worn because it was the end of a long day and I desperately needed to wash my hair, even then I want it to rank in You Tube search. Actually, I have been reading a lot about SEO and ranking and videography lately, but I´ll get to that a little later.     So when I used the tag: “Taking a break”,…

It takes 30 days to create a habit, they say.

Whenever you try to incorporate something new into your life (usually the healthy stuff like working out, meditation or snacking on celery instead of crisps), people will tell you that it takes 30 days to create a new habit.     30 days of sticking to something apparently tricks your mind into accepting it as the new normal, so it gets easier to see it through. I am not convinced though.

LLL Vlogs 39 – Las Fallas

From the snowy mountains right to Las Fallas, the spring festival of Valencia and the Valencia area. Sounds glamorous? Oh yes! If only I hadn’t caught my sons stomach bug and spend one of the two days we had in the beautiful city hugging the hotel room toilet. TMI? Sorry!     Oh well, kids stay with you even if you leave them at home with the grandparents, I guess. It was a blast nonetheless, and I managed to capture quite a bit of the festivities on camera. Some of the…

LLL Vlogs 38 – Galtür

I spend the last six days wearing barely any makeup and here is what happened: Nothing. I mean, what was supposed to happen?     This is one of those annoying clickbait titles that repeatedly grace my blog lovin recommendations feed and that make me usually doubt humanity in general and beauty lovers in particular. But there, I wrote it, and it is true. I did barely wear any makeup. Not because I didn’t bring any. I did. Or because I purposefully decided to let my skin “breathe”. I didn’t.…

LLL Vlogs 37 – Travel plans

Don’t be fooled by the pretty picture! There are no sunsets in this video, in fact the sun has long set and you will only get to see me, fresh from the shower (in clothes!) and with a towel wrapped around my head. Wait, that sounds off. I didn’t obviously shower in clothes, I meant that I put on clothes after the shower to film the video.     Even though, given how I was feeling when I filmed it, I would not have been surprised if I had forgotten…

What´s in my travel skincare bag?

While I can easily make do with one bikini, one beach cover up and two pairs of shorts to see me through a three week holiday, I used to pack everything and the kitchen sink when it came to skincare. You see, you never know when a special firming and brightening face mask will come in handy. And which serum your skin will crave exactly on day five.     And of course someone multi masking regularly needs at least four, better five different face mask options. A week. Which…

Alpengasthof Schwand – Let´s go to the mountains

Revisiting a place under changed circumstances is risky business. The changed circumstances I am talking about this time is having two kids. But let me explain: In early May we had a week off and decided, pretty spontaneously, to take the kids to the mountains. Both Mr. Loca and I are into hiking and climbing, but of course going to the mountains with kids is more about walking and eating then it is about alpine sports.     We had stayed in “Alpengasthof Schwand” twice before, both times just the…

The Travel Photo Tag – my trip down memory lane

When the originally planned content didn’t happen for today, I turned to Twitter to ask whether I should do an impromptu video or just reschedule already written content. No one answered, so I had to decide myself. A few weeks ago the lovely Melissa from Kiss & Makeup Beauty Blog shared “The Travel Photo Tag” on YouTube and as I had been meaning to take part anyway, I settled for a chatty trip down memory lane.
