November Favourites!

Hello guys!
So I totally forgot doing my October favourites and before I forget it this month and will be mad at myself for the whole month, I will do my beauty favourites for November today. I hope you are as excited as I am to share with you my favourite products, so let's get started!

(from left to right)
1st row: 
Max Factor Soft Resistant Makeup in 1 Light: This is my current everyday foundation and it is just amazing for pale ladies like me. It has a medium to strong coverage which covers up all my pimples and lasts really long, thus, it's perfect for my long university days. 
NYX Blush in Mauve: I purchased my first NYX products this month and totally fell in love with them. This blush is the perfect colour between rosy, bronzy and peachy so that it just gives you the perfect subtle colour. I am not sure whether this blush is strong enough for really dark skin tones.
Manhattan Duo Eyeshadow: Unfortunately, this eyeshadow duo isn't available anymore, but it just contains a beautiful light, shimmery, rosy highlighting colour and a slightly darker, red-rose colour for the crease. I loved to use the light colour as a highlight this month.
Maybelline Super 24h Concealer: I have this concealer in the lightest shade and I love it. I use it under my eyes and and it really stays there for the entire day and doesn't go into your wrinkles.
H&M Bronzing Powder: You have to use this bronzer on a light hand otherwise you will look like a huge orange monster, but applied with gentle strokes over your cheekbones it just looks really fresh during this winter time. I use it as a blusher as I think the bronzer might be too orange for a natural sun kissed look.

2nd row:
NYX 10 Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Bubbles and Caviar: Oh my gosh, guys! Why did I discover this product only now?! This is the second part of my NYX Haul and I would call it a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palette. Once I saw the palette, I had to have it and now I use it nearly every single day! I can totally recommend buying it!
Catrice Eye Brow Stylist in 020 Date With Ash-ton: Besides the name, the product is really great and cooperates perfectly with my natural hair colour with its ashy undertone. Again, you have to apply this product also with a light hand and slowly build up the colour of your eyebrows. I didn't now that for quiet a while and always ended up having two bold lines over my eyes.
Vichy Dermablend Concealer in 21 Opal: This is by far the best concealer for acne which I have ever used and I doubt that I will ever use another one. You only need a tiny amount of product to cover up any pimple no matter how red it is and it look super natural and not cakey at all.
Manhattan Eyeshadow Base: Another product that I used the wrong way for half a year. You only need a fingertip of product for two eyelids and then your eyeshadow stay on for the entire day even after doing a workout!
Labello Repair & Care: I am not sure whether I have already mentioned this product in any of my post, but I received this as a present and love it. It is not a normal lib balm, no, it consists if a deep-moisturizing formulation and a slightly rosy colour which is just the perfect combination for the frosting winter season.

I also really loved using the Balea Body Lotions with chocolate and chocolate / fig scent and the Essence Winter Edition Hand Protection Balms, especially the Apple Cinnamon Punch one, which I have just purchased recently and can be seen in my latest haul!

So these were my November favourites. I just realised that during the last two months I rediscovered quite a lot of old products respectively finally learned how do use them right. Well, that's another way to save money :) I hope you found a few of these products interesting and see you later! Also, comment below what are your favourite products for this month & are you excited about christmas?



Plaid Wool Skirt - Fall / Winter Outfit of the Day

Hey guys!
It is even November which means that the fall is literally rushing and I just realised that I haven't worn my favourite fall clothing items yet which are my fall skirts and shorts. So today's outfit is all about my beloved plait wool skirt which is casual but dressed up in the same time. It's hard to see on the photo, but the skirt has a bow on the waistline and also some really cool pockets. I combined a burgundy sweater with the dark blue skirt because the plaits of the skirt have some dark red colour details. I also decided to pair my non-transparent grey tights with my grey suede booties so that I stay in one colour range on the bottom.

The outfit
Sweater: Montego. Skirt: Esprit. Tights: from the grocery store. Boots: Gabor.

Make-up, Nail polish & Jewelry:

Nail polish: Nivea Carrot Brown *discontinued*. Bow Earings: Tallulah Tu.
Make-up: inner corner - light pink. eyelid - shimmery pink. crease - light matte grey. -eyeliner - smudged grey eyeliner pencil

This was my outfit for today. It is really frustrating that it start getting so cold so that you slowly get more limited in your clothing choice. However, I hope you liked this post and comment below whether you also love wearing skirt with boots during the fall time.

Wish you a wonderful day! Lots of love,


DM Haul! Haircare, Nails, Face & Eye Make-up!

Immer wenn ich meine Klausuren beendet habe, belohne ich mich selbst mit einem kleinen Einkauf in meinem geliebten DM. Mein Raubzug ist diesmal recht überschaubar, nur bin ich momentan mit meinem Make-up Sortiment relativ zufrieden und denke momentan über meine Einkäufe vernünftig nach. Dennoch denke ich, dass es wichtig ist, dass man sich etwas gönnt gerade nach einer bestandenen Klausuren-Phase.

Ich hab schon viele gute Reviews über die Gliss Kur Pflegeserien gelesen und nun habe ich mir die Gliss Kur Ultimate Repair Anti-Schaden-Kur geleistet, nachdem ich bemerkt habe, dass meine Spitzen schon recht trocken werden. Bisher bin ich mit dem Ergebnis sehr zufrieden!

Face & Nails:
Noch nie habe ich in der Drogerie ein Make-up gefunden, was wirklich hell genug für mein Hautton ist und fast hätte ich meine Hoffnung aufgegeben, hätte ich nicht das Max Factor Soft Resistent Make up in 1 Light gefunden. 
Es wird definitiv eine Review folgen, weil da es bisher so scheint, als ob ich mein perfektes Make-up gefunden habe.
Dann habe ich mir noch den Essence colour & go in 122 chic reloaded gekauft, ein sehr dunkler holographischer Nagellack. Swatches und weitere Inspirationen findet ihr hier.

Eye Make-up:
Zum dritten Mal habe ich mir nun diese Mascara, die Essence I love extreme Mascara, nachgekauft und ich bin immer nun begeistert von ihr und kann keinen einzigen Nachteil anmerken. Von daher fällt dies höchstwahrscheinlich in meine Kategorie des "Must-haves". 
Mein letzter Kauf waren diese beiden neuen Lidschatten von Essence. Einmal 64 greybound, was ein wunderschönes schimmriges grau, braun ist, und 65 is it purple?, welcher einen holographischen Effekt hat und je nach Lichteinfall lila, braun erscheint.
Swatches - oben: is it purple? / unten: greyhound
Ich hoffe ihr fandet meinen kleinen Haul etwas interessant und konntet vielleicht für euren nächsten Einkauf bei DM inspiriert werden. Ich wünsche Euch noch einen wunderschönen Tag und genießt die letzten Sonnenstrahlen des goldenen Oktobers ;)

Alles Liebe,


Nespresso Variations 2012 Winter Limited Edition

Nespresso has released its new Variations for 2012! The Winter Limited Edition offers three coffees with three different flavors: Hazelnut, Coconut and Macadamia Nut. Quiet Nutty. You can see an overview of their new collection on their website here.
But firstly, let's talk about my coffee story:
I have to admit that I hated drinking coffee for years and only really enjoyed drinking a cup of coffee three weeks ago. I am still a total tea-drinker, let's say that I drink tea for 95%, and just drink a cup of coffee as a special treat. However, after years of making a disgusting face when thinking about coffee, I have to admit, yes, I like coffee with lots of milk. I still don't like the pure taste of it as I find it too bitter,  so the Nespresso Vanilla flavoured coffee was like heaven. Not as sweet as the vanilla latte from Starbucks, but with a less noticeable roasting. So I was really looking forward to this year's winter limited edition and wasn't disappointed of these capsules.

Description: "The combination of the lightly roasted hazelnut notes with Livanto Grand Cru reveals praline flavours, giving it a well balance in the mouth."
Intensity: 6/10
Size of cup: Espresso - 40 ml

Macadamia Nut

Description: "The rich savours of the macadamia nut combined with the roundness of the Livanto Grand Cru, develop a sup rising freshness, revealing citrus notes."
Intensity: 6/10
Size of cup: Espresso - 40 ml 


Description: "A perfect harmon between the coconut notes and the Livanto Gran Cru creates a gourmand experience reminiscent of coconut macaroons."

Intensity: 6/10
Size of cup: Espresso - 40 ml

One package consisting of 10 capsules costs 4,20€ or you can buy each capsule individually for 0,42€. They currently also offer a "Discovery Variations 2012" set which consist of 2 packages of hazelnut, 2 packages of macadamia nut and 1 package of coconut for 21€.
The capsules can be drunken as espresso, cappuccinos or regular lattes.
I am really looking forward to testing these out and will do a review of them as fast as I receive them. What do you think about Nespresso capsules?

Wish you a wonderful day! Lots of love,


Clubbing Fashion Haul + Online Fashion Tip!

Hey guys!

As the New Years glamorous fashion session starts, we can find lots of sparkly and sexy outfits in the stores. Because I also needed some clubbing outfits really urgently, I started searching in various online shops and started with the usual ones like Asos, Zara and H&M. However, I only found a few pieces in every store and I didn't want to order from several online stores. And then, accidentally I went to Vero Moda's website. I always declared Vero Moda as being casual, too ordinary that tries hard to be kind of stylish. However, what I found was amazing, completely fulfiled all my wishes even after trying it on.

I firstly bought a basic burgundy tank top for 10€ because it's just a basic item in a beautiful colour. The top is not see-through and is a bit longer. 
The highlight of my haul: the black mini dress with net detail. I love this dress because of the ruffles on the décolleté it creates the illusion of a bigger bust. Also the net detail is something different than the really popular and kind of boring lace dresses.
This is definitely part of the New Years fashion trend, but I searched for a sequin skirt for a long time. The special thing about this mini skirt is that it is not only black but also has some grey, browns and purple sequins which makes it even more interesting.
Another eye-catcher and perfect for clubbing is this cream beige sequin top which suits perfectly to a black mini skirt as this model wears it.

So this was my whole purchase. Have a look a their new collection here or just browse through their website because they definitely have a lot going on there especially if you want to have some cool and sexy clubbing outfits.

I hope you liked this post & comment below what is your favourite clubbing outfit?

Wish you a wonderful day! Lots of love,


Who Else Wants to Be Happy in Life?

Be happy. Enjoy your life.
Everyone know these sentences and I know that it is not always easy to think positive in every situation. And sometimes we need our "dark hours", but hey, we only life once and the life is such a precious, such a wonderful and unique thing! I just can't, I really CAN'T stand out when people are in a quiet hard situation and they always want to have pity, attention. I just hate it. Don't understand me wrong - I am a really helpful person and I think we all should support each other, but at a certain point the (self-)pity has to stop! 
Just forget all your worries in a second, open your eyes, see your situation form another point and just smile. Smile for a minute & reward your soul with a little tread whether it is food, sport, a walk outdoor or a little shopping tour. Just do something for yourself and experience your life! Your problems might also solve themselves or you can sort your thoughts from a realistic view point.
Just have the best time of your life!

I hope you like your life. Wish you a wonderful day/life! Love,


Balea Professional More Blond Aufhellungsspray - Review & Bilder

Hallo meine Lieben!
Noch im Sommer habe ich das Balea Professional More Blond Aufhellungsspray gekauft, da ich meine natürliche Aufhellung während der Sommerzeit ein wenig helfen wollte. Um ehrlich zu sein hatte ich keine hohen Erwartungen und so landete das Produkt eher aus Spaß und versuchsweise in meinem Einkaufskorb. Meine Mutter lachte mich noch aus und selbst ich glaubte an keinen Effekt, doch falsch gedacht. Der Effekt ist beachtlich und ich bin  von dem Produkt zutiefst beeindruckt! Wenn du sowie Vorher-/Nachher-Bilder als auch meine detailreiche Review sehen willst, dann bleib dran.


Corduroy Trousers and Black Blouse - Outfit of the Day

Hey guys!
Every woman knows that: We have clothes in our wardrobe that we hardly ever wear, but still we don't throw them away. A research even showed that a woman only wears about 10% of her wardrobe and I have to admit that I probably only wear about 25% of my clothes. So I rediscovered a black blouse which I own for 2 years, however, I have probably worn it five times. The problem with a black, quiet conservative cut blouse is that it can easily look like you are going to a funeral. Or you just look depressed and ill. Nevertheless, after two years I finally came out with an outfit that I really like.

The outfit

Blouse: Vero Moda. Corduroy Trousers: Mavi Jeans. Belt: H&M. Shoes: Buffalo Shoes.

Because of the black of the blouse, I wanted to balance this outfit out by wearing colourful trousers. So I decided to go with some soft red corduroy trousers which are perfect for this season. In order to combine these two colours, I tucked the blouse in the trousers, used a black belt and went for black patent-leather shoes. Even though there is a lot black going on, the patent-leather is still a real eye catcher. 

Jewellery, Make-up & Perfume
Necklace: Bijou Brigitte. Earrings: Jeweller. Perfume: YSL Paris.
Make-up: matte medium brown - all over the lid. white - inner corner. black winged liner.

Jewellery-wise I kept everything more in the gold, classic, subtle section because the black blouse is bold enough for me. Also my make-up was pretty simple, but I really love this simple look and YSL Paris transports exactly this bold but feminine, elegant feeling.
I hope you liked this outfit and comment below what do you think about corduroy fashion?

Wish you a wonderful day! Lots of love,


How To Make 100 Calorie Chocolate Brownies & Fire in the Kitchen

Have you ever dreamed of a low-calorie and low-fat healthy chocolate brownie that taste absolutely the same, but has more than 2/3 less calories than a regular one? Well, then actually your dream came true because I baked one of these amazing brownies today. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to use the gadgets in our kitchen correctly, so I suddenly had a little fire in my kitchen. If you want to know how you can bake these delicious chocolate brownies with 84 calories, which accident happened in my kitchen and how I survived it, then keep on reading!


Get Rid of Nausea Within Seconds

Today I felt incredible nauseous, probably because of the terrible changes of the temperature. However, I found a simple and easy way to get rid of nausea without any medicine within a few seconds. If you want to know what I have been using then keep on reading.

I made myself a ginger tea!

Ginger is known as a spice in the kitchen, however it is definitely underrated in its health benefits.
These benefits of the ginger root are:

  • anti-inflammatory, carminative, anti-flatulent, and anti-microbial properties
  • essential oils such as gingerol, zingerone, shogaol, farnesene and small amounts of β-phelladrene, cineol, and citral. Gingerols improve the intestinal motility and has anti-inflammatory, painkiller (analgesic), nerve soothing, anti-pyretic as well as anti-bacterial properties. Studies have shown that it may reduce nausea induced by motion sickness or pregnancy and may help relieve migraine headaches.
  • Zingerone, which gives pungent character to the ginger root, has been found to be effective against E.coli induced diarrhea, especially in children.
  • low in calories and contains no cholesterol, but is very rich source of many essential nutrients and essential vitamins such as pyridoxine (vitamin B-6), pantothenic acid (vit.B-5).
  • minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.

  • So I found a piece of ginger in my fridge, chopped it in small slices, put it in a cup and brew it with hot water. You can drink right now or brew this tea for 10 minutes for better benefits.

    10 minutes after drinking the tea I noticed that my nausea was suddenly gone and I didn't feel nauseous for the whole day. I was so surprised about the effect because I haven't expected this at all. Thus, I can totally recommend drinking a ginger tea when you're feeling nauseous.

    Please let me know whether this helped you too or whether you have other methods to get rid of nausea?

    Wish you a wonderful day!
    Lots of love,


    Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Shine Control Moisturizer

    After a long long time I finally did a review again. I wanted to do a review of this Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Shine Control Moisturizer since summer, but never found the time and passion to fulfil it. So here we go.
    Price: can't remember between 7-9€
    Content: 40ml
    Durability: 12 months

    Garnier promises: 
    "Even oily skin that’s prone to problems needs to be kept hydrated. Garnier developed a unique formula using carefully selected natural ingredients: white clay and zinc to matify skin, and salicylic acid for purifying power. The result is an ultra-efficient matte-finish moisturizer that leaves skin looking healthy and clean."

    Smell, Consistency & Colour
    The consistency is like a normal moisturizer. The moisturizer is water based so it is a really light cream and thus, perfect for combination to oily skin. The cream is white and the cream has not a strong specific smell. It smells a tiny bit "green" which has probably something to do with Pure Naturals line by Garnier.

    Direct application
    1 minute later
    I have got quiet oily skin especially during the summer and I literally just needed a fingertip of product. I will probably need more in the winter, nevertheless I am really impressed of the mattifying effect of this cream. Seriously, one minute after the application your whole skin is matt without feeling dry or not moisturized at all. 
    This moisturizer is amazing. I think it is created as a morning moisturizer because if the mattifying effect, however, I actually use it as a night moisturizer. I think with oily skin you don't need a lot of moisturizer even in the night and a too thick moisturizer can cause pimples. The cream doesn't has a miracle effect on my blemishes, however, it does prevent from producing more of these. Thus, I can totally recommend this if you are searching for a great moisturizer for combination to oily skin.

    Comment below whether you have any experience with this Garnier line?

    Wish you a wonderful day!
    Lots of love,


    My Fitness Inspiration + Fitness Update

     As you might can tell, recently I am on a fitness and health kick. However, I concentrated myself on sport and also had my fitness plan where I really sticked to, but I didn't see a massive difference. I could feel the muscles and see a few of them, but there weren't that visible because of the fat on top of my muscles.
    No amount of sport can show you the result which a good diet does. The diet influences the weight loss about 70% whereas sport supports this only about 30%. I don't intend to lose weight primarily, but I want to get a more defined body where I can see my muscles and look more toned. The key of a healthy diet is clean eating. I will talk about clean eating in detail in another post. I follow this eating method with passion and totally love it. I feel energized and vitalized without being stuffed.
    My inspiration and motivation for my new step to my "dream body" is the Bodyrock-Team. Bodyrock is a online website which post mainly free workout videos, sometimes also diet tips or hauls. However, my full diet inspirations are Lisa-Marie and recently Haley. These two woman do the workouts in front of the camera and post a lot of pictures on Facebook. Especially, Lisa-Marie posts great motivational pictures as you can see a few of them here even though she is even an inspiration. 

     How do you get your fitness inspiration and motivation?

    Wish you a wonderful day!
    Lots of love,
