It might be close to winter now.. Especially not that it's December 1st. But this one fall post needs to be on my blog. I have
watched countless Youtubers rave about the Bath & Body Works fall candles
for years and years and now I finally got my hands on them. I took advantage of my family from the US visiting in October. I
know they always have some spare room in their luggage on their way to Austria so I filled
up that space with candles. The pure joy I felt when my aunt handed me a box of
fall greatness is hard to put into words. Let's see what I got and how I liked it. Afterall it is hard to decide on a scent online.
Let's explore the healthy side of things before I lose myself in Christmas cookie recepies. I can't be the only one who absolutely hates the cold but lives for anything Christmas related.
Ok, take a deep breath. It's not December yet and therefore I am not allowed to talk about the best holiday of the year.
Focus! Healthy. Things that are good for you. Breakfast. Granola! Can anyone tell me why the cereal you can buy is always covered in sugar? Don't get me wrong, I do like things sweet but sugar as second or sometimes even first ingredient just annoys me. I am trying to - at least sometimes - eat healthy. So instead of reaching for bread with whatever every day I'll have granola with fruit and yoghurt for breakfast. But I haven't found one that doesn't seem to be covered in sweetener. Sometimes there is no sugar at all but then I feel like it tastes like nothing. In the end I decided to consult Pinterest. I almost got lost in ingredients I have never heard of and have no idea where to find but which are supposed to be oh so very healthy and good for you.
Ever since we moved into this apartment the wall behind our dining table stayed empty. It has mocked me with its blankness for three years now. Also my boyfriend never got tired of kindly pointing out that the wall was still bare. But don't worry I have something I have been just as annoying about. ;)
The weather is getting cold, the sun has gone off to god knows where and the rain doesn't stop falling. So while I was debating whether to move to another country - as I do every year after the first days of fall - I came across this recipe. Soups are a must during the cold seasons and also a healthy alternative to seven days of noodles. *busted!* Also leftovers can easily be frozen.
A few days after
finishing one of the most fascinating trilogys, I have to sit down and tell you
about a breathtaking story. For the second time I have fallen in love with a
character without noticing it at first. When all of the sudden I started to be
protective of him I knew it happened again. My first love was Newt from The
Maze Runner. I have to admit though it started with the voice Mark Deakins gave Newt. And it deepened with his self-sacrificing, fearless but caring character as a leader.
This time I
fell in love with Peter Jaxson. At first I didn’t really notice him because
there were a lot of characters to get to know and I had no idea who to focus on. But as the story evolved I stood
by his side and watched him grow into a man I would admire in real life. I
guess I have a thing for fearless but at the same time caring males. ;) But who doesn't?
It’s been a
while since I read the first two books so I hope I can still give you the review
they deserve. No spoilers, I promise!
artist needs the right tools to work with. Consider your face your canvas and so far
you have drawn on it with your fingers or whatever came in your powder container. It might be
time for an upgrade!
Before I go into detail: This is a
guide not a shopping list. You don’t need the exact brushes I am using.
But there may be one or two handy tips in here for you to consider if you are
thinking about buying a brush in the future.
products of my desire and neither are available in Austria. Lucky me!
I already mentioned the Anastasia Beverly Hillf brow pomade (taupe) in my US make up haul. The NXY tame& frame tinted brow pomade (blonde) was ordered from feelunique.
Ever since I purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills
brow pomade I was scared I would run out of it although it will probably last
for ages anyway. Well my troubled mind made me buy the NYX brow pomade just in case I needed a cheaper alternative. You might ask why find an
alternative if I haven’t even come close to running out of my expensive one?
Well a) because now I can compare the products side by side without one being old and dried out and more importantly b)
I can justify my purchases by blogging about them.
European I have to admit I slightly lost it when I first walked into Sephora.
It was like heaven's doors opened and gave me access to everything I can never have. It was quite the effort to limit
myself to what I really “needed” instead of buying everything I wanted. I did
make a list of the absolute necessary in advance so I wouldn’t black out and
spend all my traveling budget in one store.
