Hi guys,

I haven´t done a Casual Saturday post the last two weeks because it wasn´t just enough we did to round up to you and also I had so much content I wanted to get out before summer fades away.

But today we are continuing with our normal schedule.

It was Florian´s grandmas birthday on Thursday so we went there for a birthday dinner. 


For Friday we had tickets for a big soccer game in Munich and there is an excursion with Florian´s soccer team today. 
We are heading back to Munich tomorrow to stay there for two days and are coming back on Monday.
Wow so many activities !!




Food:

I tried out some new stuff and one of it and above all was this double burger I made and since we stopped eating carbs I made the burger buns out of spinach cheese and egg. I have to admit they look a little strange and you might have to get used to it first but the taste was amazing.



Another meal or a desert I wanted to try out a long time was this skillet chocolate chip cookie. This is heaven you guys. HEAVEN. It takes nothing like a normal cookie. This is way better. I put some peanut butter and caramel ice cream on top which made it even better (and I thought we where avoiding carbs – whoops). The recipe is from Martha Stewart – you can view it here.

Another great thing I love to make in summer are salads. I just throw in any kind of stuff I find in the fridge or in my pantry. I like to add one warm ingridient to it like a grilled cheese in this case.

Since we love a good breakfast on weekends we tried these breakfast muffins and they are great. You can make them in a million different ways.

Shop:


gingham blouse JDY
oversized jeans jacket LTB
black skinny jeans even & odd
flanel blouse Dorothy Perkins

brown faux leather skirt bonprix
black faux leather skirt bonprix

I am totally stocking up for fall guys. I am all about colder weather, pumpkin lattes and decorating for fall but don´t tell.

TV: 
 I am still watching Pretty Little Liars and I am obsessed. Really obsessed. I like everything about the show. The characters, the story it never gets boring. 


Do you guys have any plans for your weekend?
This might be the last weekend we are so busy cause we have to get the house ready outside before fall hits us.


Thanks for stopping by. 


Take care. See you.

Best of primer – concealer – foundation – an unbeatable trio….


….



Hi guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

today´s post is long overdue but I had to try out everything first cause I am never showing stuff I didn´t try before.


I am showing you my favorite make-up products for a fresh and even look on your face. These are my absolute favorites so I am always rotating around these ones. It is all about foundation, primer, concealer and highlighter today.


So let´get this started….

prep and prime

Preparation is everything for a succesful base. I am currently using the L´oréal Hydra Genius face lotion. I don´t need a thick and heavy face lotion for summer to stay hydrated so this is perfect.

After that I am applying this primer called matte face base from Kiko Milano to my face. This is the best primer I have ever tried. It has a super thick consistency when you apply it but that goes away pretty quick and your make-up is staying and important for me it is staying matte. And it smells so good.


Another one I have tried is the Infailable Primer from L´oréal Paris. It is in the same price range. It is not as thick as the Kiko one and the smell isn´t as good but it is alright and it leaves a smooth feel on your skin. 



cover and hide

Next step is to apply my concealer – I know it is highly discussed if you need to apply it first or after make-up, I apply it before but you can do whatever is right for you – the L´oréal Infailable Total Cover palette. It has multiple shades also a green one to erase blemishes. The coverage is pretty good. I can use the first two shade for winter and summer. It goes on pretty smooth. 


 I am also using the Full Coverage Concealer from Kiko. It has kind of a hard consistency so I am using this mostly for under my eyes or for spots I need to cover.

My foundation is currently from Dior. It is the Diorskin Forever foundation in color 030. It is a little pricey but in my opinion it is worth every cent. It has a shine control which I appreciate very much and it also has SPF which is pretty important since I don´t have SPF in my face lotion. The foundation sets in very nice and it is buildable without having a mask effect.

 I also love the Vichy Dermablend foundation so much. I am using the color 25 Nude. The foundation leaves a total matte effect and it lasts pretty long. It is teint correcting which I like very much and you can cove almost everything you want to hide.

I have also been using the HD Liquid Coverage Foundation from Catrice as a back up. It is a low price drug store foundation but in my opinion it is pretty good.


For summer month or when I am on vacation I am only using a BB creme. Mine is the Garnier Miracle Skin BB Creme in the light shade. I had one from Manhattan earlier but I didn´t not like it at all.

To get everything set I am using the 2in1 Perfect Teint Powder from Manhattan in Sunbeige at the moment and in Beige in the winter months. I have been using the like forever and I still like it. It has more coverage than a normal powder cause of the 2in1 which I really need. And it also has a mattifying effect.

define and shine

My favorite blushes are the Maybelline Rouge and Highlighter Palette and the essence Mosaic blush and one of my absolute favorite palette is from Kiko Milano (it smells like white chocolate and also looks like this). 


Two of the highlighters I am using are from Catrice. The Catrice Eyeshadow Highlighter Pen and the Catrice Glow Highlighter Powder. Both of them are very pigmented so you better use them with caution unless you want to be very sparkly and shimmery. 


I also use the face pearls from AVON in the pearly pink shade. This is a mixture between a blush and a highlighter. I really love this one cause you get the perfect mix when you are applying it. 


The third highlighter I am using is the NYX born to glow Illuminator. It is kind of a paste and I first had to get used to it. But now I really like it. I am mostly using it for my eyes.

set and go 
I am always switching between the Kiko Milano setting spray (the smell is so good) and the nyx Matte finish setting spray . They are both pretty equal.

 These are my top make up products I am using over and over again.


Do you have any staple procuts you love ?

Take care. See you.

Hi guys and happy friday,

 (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affilate Links-not sponsored)
today I am reporting about a color which is still a huge trend for this Spring and Summer season – a yellow handbag. I was searching for the perfect one since last year (I got one but I didn´t like it in the end so I returned it cause I could not be closed and the material was kind of stiff) and didn´t find another until the Summer ended. But this year I started researching as soon as the snow melted and I found one at one of my favorite stores for affordable bags – CARPISA.

The Dara Bag – it is kind of a hobo bag with a zipper to close and an ostrich detailed materil on the outside. The yellow is a mix between a really bright and sunny yellow and a mustard one. Not to neon but still bright and vibrant. 

I already have some bags from Carpisa in my collection. They don´t have a store in Germany which is pretty sad but we are mostly travelling to cities where they have a store and they offer pretty fast shipping from their online store so it´s not to bad.

I have listed a huge range of yellow bags in different shades and shapes below. 

In fact we didn´t plan anything special for the long weekend. It will depend on the weather situation.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care. See you.
