#StayHappy2017 Update

Girl On Rocks Looking Over Sea
At the start of the year I said I didn´t want to set myself resolutions as it was more than likely that I´d fail them all - as has been true for almost all previous years. However, in collaboration with NRS Healthcare I set myself a few to challenges to #StayHappy2017. Now that the year is almost over it´s time to take a first look and see how well I did on these challenges.

7 Things I Do On A Lazy Day

Fresh Pink Roses
When I finished my main bulk of work for this semester last month (aka finished the first draft of my bachelor thesis) I had no idea what to do every day. Suddenly my life went from 24 hours not being enough in a day to 24 hours being just so much time. I kept asking myself "What do normal people do on a lazy day?" and honestly, I still have absolutely no clue. So instead I thought I´d give you a list of the things I do on lazy days to feel productive.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics - Review

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Lipstick Pink Cocoa; Tanya Burr Cosmetics Soft Luxe Lip Gloss Martha Moo;Tanya Burr Cosmetics Illuminating Powder Peonies Please
I really can´t help it but I´m just such a sucker for packaging. So when I spottet the gorgeous new packaging of Tanya Burr´s makeup range I absolutely fell in love. For the longest time I couldn´t get my hands on the shades I so badly wanted though - insert super sad emoji. However, last month they finally were in stock! I went ahead and picked up three products that I hadn´t tried before. Here are my thoughts on the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Lipstick, Tanya Burr Cosmetics Soft Luxe Lip Gloss and Tanya Burr Cosmetics Illuminating Powder.

Croatia First Impressions

I´m currently sat at a long dining table in a gorgeous mansion looking at a stunning view of the Adriatic Sea and listening to the constant stream of raindrops agains the window. Yeah, I didn´t think this sentence would end that way either. I´m currently on my summer holiday in Croatia but sadly, the weather isn´t really playing along. Still I thought I´d make a little post for you and give you my first impression of Croatia - mainly because I had this dream of blogging on holiday and I´m not giving up on that.

Let me tell you a secret: I´m a total fangirl. Okay, you might have already guessed that from my Twitter account. The secret might rather be that you don´t have any idea how much of a fangirl I really am. But even if this might seem weird to people it´s actually a really great thing; there´s always an amazing internet community to talk to, you get to spend your time watching shoes that make you incredibly happy and most of all you get to learn a lot of different things from a lot of different characters. Here are just 7 things I learnt from some of my favourite tv show characters.

Can Makeup Revolution´s Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit Hold Up To Kylie Cosmetics?

By a show of hands:  Who als has way too many lipsticks and still buys more? *holds up both hands* I´m such a sucker for lipsticks in general and very specifically liquid lipsticks. One of the most featured lipsticks on this blog might be the Kylie Cosmetics´ Matte Liquid Lipstick in Candy K. I feel like I just keep repeating how much I love it. However, they´re hard to get in Germany and they´re quite expensive so when Makeup Revolution released their lip kits I was over the moon. The Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit in Echelon was in my basket faster than I could even think and when it arrived I found it strikingly similar to Candy K. So I put both to the direct test (aka wearing them each on half of my lip) to see if Echelon would hold up as a good dupe to Candy K.

I just finished my B.Sc. in Psychology - rather I am just about to finish. Writing a bachelor thesis is kind of stressful in itself. Now add that onto the workload of a normal semester.

So here I´ve compiled a list of 10 tricks that have helped me stay cool in the last stressful phase!
