Did you know that on public holidays as well as on every Sunday, stores are closed in Germany? No quickly popping into town to get some food, no aimlessly wandering around looking for cute things to buy.
A public holiday (or every Sunday) is a holiday for everyone. Even the people working in retail.That may change, no matter how you personally feel about it, but at the moment it is my reality.
And every year I watch clips of the Boxing Day madness going on in other parts of the world from the comfort of my own home. I pat my belly, shift my weight from one side to the other (yes, the Christmas indulgence does bring back memories of the late stages of pregnancy) and wonder: Is there still anything we need to buy?
The answer, of course, is yes. My wish list is always growing, new releases try to lure me into buying more makeup and I am barely able to close the doors on my skincare drawer(s).
I will leave new purchases to next year though, well aware that it is only three days away, and for now concentrate on the things I actually used up. My December 2017 Empties and, if I might say so myself, a very fitting way to end the year.
Please do watch the video on You Tube and in HD so you have the opportunity to compare it to my first ever Empties video (here) that aired almost exactly two years ago.
