Catrice & Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 Collection Update

It is time for an update. An update on the Catrice and Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 collection. I tried both of these when they came out over the summer, but that was of course just a first impression. By now I have tried everything a bit more and while full reviews may be pending, I…

Catrice & Essence Haul Update

It’s been a few weeks since I showed you the new producs that Catrice and Essence brought out for spring/ summer 2019. I first showed you the Catrice products in early February as they are always first. A few weeks later, Essence released their update and I posted my video on the new products in…

Catrice & Essence haul update

In July & September I tried some new Essence & Catrice products in two different first impression videos. I always do these when these two affordable brands change up their makeup lines for the new season, which happens twice a year. So far I have gotten around to reviewing a few of the items I…

Eyeshadow palette collection 2018

So we are nearing the end of August palette month and I thought we’d go out with a bang. I still have one more review for you tomorrow, but I figured it would be best to make the last video of this month my full eyeshadow palette collection video. I already did posts on my…

Reading challenge update

I thought it would be fun to shoot a chatty, rambly type video in which I update you on my experiences so far doing the Goodreads Reading Challenge. It’s the first time I’m participating and my goal is to reach 50 books by the end of the year. By now I’m terribly behind (that July…

Personal update #7

It’s been a while since I last updated you on my life. I haven’t written anything since July! I was simply so busy getting back to work and getting my life back on track that I didn’t have much inspiration for a personal update post. I also had quite a few things that I was…

Personal update #2

So I thought I’d use this space to not only keep track of my fave beauty products, but also to write a bit about myself from time to time. As you may know, I decided to call in sick from work in January. I have been home ever since. This is what I wrote in…

Site update: new theme

Just a quick message. In case you didn’t notice yet: I picked a new theme for the blog. I think I used the old one (Blogum) for almost 2 years and I thought it was time for a change. What I like about this theme is that it is still clean and simple and has…

Personal: getting back on track

The first week of teaching has finished and as you read this I’m gearing up for another one. After weeks, no months, of not being in front of a classroom, the first weeks of a school year are always the toughest. Add to that that I’m committing again to making better and healthier food choices,…

Updated make up collection & storage

A collection update. It was about time. The last time I showed this was almost 2 years ago and lots has changed since then. I purged quite a few sections mainly, but on the other hand, not so much has changed. I still store my make up collection in the same way and I honestly…

Quick update on me (January 2013)

Right now my life sucks. I’ve been on the verge of getting sick for weeks and now I finally have. Of course right in the weeks where I would be busiest all of January. To top it all off, I’m also battling a bad case of insomnia (I am writing this at 4.30 AM –…

Update on me – May 2012

The month of May is nearly over! At the beginning of the month I gave you an overview of what I was going to do and now I’d like to reflect on the things I’ve done this month and also my general well-being. This month promised to be busy and it was. So busy that…

***Update***: giveaway contest

Someone very rightly pointed out to me that you need a WordPress account to like posts. I wasn’t aware of this, so to make your lives easier I have decided to update the rules for the giveaway which I posted a few days ago. I will ALSO extend the deadline to make up for the…

Nail Polish Collection *Update*

I thought it was time to give you all an update on my nail polish collection. Because even though I decided not to buy any more polishes a while ago, I just can’t help myself with all those pretty colors that are being released all the time. I do have to say that I have…

Double Double Toil and Trouble

Yes, I have in fact used a quote from the one and only Will Shakespeare. I did study English language & literature, thank you very much. I may not have always cared for the endless classes on Shakespeare (I prefer Ben Jonson of the contemporary Elizabethan playwright era), but as an English student good ole…

Quick update on me

No blog for 3 days on end. I think the last time that happened I had come down with the nastiest case of bronchitis in history. This time it is nothing that serious. I was just busy with uni, work and social stuff which left me with no time (or energy) to get behind the…

Update on me

As you could have read on Monday, this week has been a weird week. Not only have a I been super busy but I also had a few personal things to deal with. First of all, one of my colleagues suddenly passed away Monday morning, but on top of that I received a call that…

Remember, remember… Here is my month of November

Vacation is officially over! By now I’ve already been back at work and uni since yesterday and apart from new uni courses, a pile of grading, resits and getting back to teaching later this month, I also have a bunch of fun things coming up. Read on to find out what my month will roughly…

Mini update: nail polish collection

I acquired some new nail polishes over the past few months and therefore I thought it would be appropriate to show you which ones I’ve bought. These are only my recent purchases. I got a few other ones, not featured in my earlier posts on my nail polish collection, but I don’t remember exactly when…

Update on Me!

My first week’s vacation is already over and what a week it’s been, plus I’ve got more stuff coming up. Wanna know what’s been going on and what I’ll be up to? Keep on reading! First of all, I am getting a new house mate today. My old one left yesterday. She packed all her…

I’m keeping my job!

On Monday I had my appraisal interview and was told that my contract will be renewed and I will be able to stay for another year! YAY!! So I think it’s time for a celebration! Every year it’s an exciting time at the end of the year. I have three appraisal interviews throughout the year….

Some new links

I decided to update my links page. It’s gonna be vacation soon and then I’ll add some more. I’m thinking of adding links to some of my favorite online stores as well as a page with links to some other blogs that I sometimes read but are totally random or not on my blog roll….
