Amazon Finds – January….

….

Happy Sunday  you guys,

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

I hope you had a nice weekend so far. I wanted to share another Amazon buys round-up with you today (and yes January is correct). Somehow I stopped to share my finds last year cause I was so busy with all the holidays so I totally forgort about this.

But here we are again and let´s dive in. Everything is linked as always at the end of the post.

Amazon Buys January 21

Pack of 7 pairs of earrings // To be honest this wasn´t the best set of earrings. It is cute and totally Valentine´s Day themed but the one pair I had so much hope in (the heart shaped earrings with the white “pearls” broke after the first use). All of the other pairs are fine and especially the velvet pieces are made of good quality. The whole set is under ten so there wasn´t much to expect though.

Peppa Pig Best Friends book // Got this book for Emilia cause she loves pigs and Peppa Pig is so cute. She liked it a lot and still loves to look at it and lift the flaps. It is sturdier than I thought, thankfully.

I love you, little one flap book // If you looked carefully you remember this being in Emilia´s Valentine´s Day basket. It is the perfect little book to give to babies. The pages are very thick. It contains lot´s of sweet animals and is overall a very cute book.

Silicone bips // These are self-explanatory. We definitely have a messy eater and these bips have caught so much food before it falls on the floor. Also they are very easy to clean and so affordable.

Pill container // I have a hard time with taking my pills each day so this container definitely made it easier for me. I know now what I still have to take and what is already gone for the day.

Wrapping paper organizer // I store all of my wrapping paper in one corner of our pantry and after Christmas it was the biggest mess. At some point I stuck them all into a bucket. I saw this at someone´s Insta story but I can not remember who and ordered one immediately. It fits about 10 rolls of wrapping paper which is great cause now everything is stored away thoroughly.

Baby girl hair clip in bows // I ordered the same pieces as headbands months ago but need clips now cause the she doesn´t like hair bands in her hair anymore. Makes me really sad but on the other hand these are so cute as well.

Birthday Girl headband // A little something for me on my birthday since we weren´t able to do anything. Also comes in silver and with a sash (but I threw the sash away).

Golden candles // Have never seen more beautiful candles for a birthday cake than these twisted golden candles. Unfortunately they arrived late so I will be using them next year.

Christmas ornament container // I have collected so many important and unique ornaments so I wanted to store them separately from the rest of the ornaments and I ordered this container. It comes with a extra divider for the inside of your box to store your delicate memorabilia safe until next year.

Vitamins // I have shared everything about the vitamins I take and why and where I got them specifically in this post.

And that´s it for another whole month of Amazon finds. Amazon always has been my go-to for all kinds of things I would not know where to get else but the last year it has become even more important cause shops are still closed but life goes.

See you next week for lots of Spring content. We shot some adorable looks on the weekend.

Happy December you guys,

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

I can´t believe the last month of the year is here and to be honest it hasn´t gotten any better in terms of Corona and it probably won´t be better again ´till next Spring. 

Although I am done with all my Christmas shopping and decorationg the house and that gives me a huge boost in terms of creativity and my overall happy being. 

There aren´t as many pictures as I had in my last Instagram round-ups because we have been in light lockdown which lasted all through November and will go until the middle of January without further notice. 

What are your thoughts on our current situation as well as on December being here already? I would love to hear more about it.

FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!

Happy Friday you guys,

don´t we all have these special prodcuts we love, use over and over again and also have as a back-up in case they brake or are empty. I am talking about our holy grail make-up products. I have a bunch I used for years and hardly ever swap because once I have found a tried and true favorite which isn´t easy and takes a long time I stick to it.

My Holy Grail Make-Up Products

Benefit Hoola Bronzer // This has been my go-to bronzer for what feels like forever. I first started with the mini version and it lasted me for about three years which has been a few months ago so I got the normal sized version. It is a little pricey but it really lasts a long long time so this totally justifies the price point. You can also use it as an eyeshadow base. 

Benefit Porefessional Primer // I have tested a bunch of different primer throughout the years and no one ever created such a smooth and even surface to put my make-up on. A little goes a long way for this product. I really liked it and already purchases it again. The only downside is when you are using to much of the product it shows off very quickly because it starts to crumble.

essence Lash Princess Mascara // The cheapest mascara I have ever tried/used but it is perfect. The black is very deep, the price is under 3 Euro which is unbelievable and the brush is perfect to apply your mascara whithout spreading or smudging the color for both the upper and lower lash line.

MAC Prep + Prime Lip Primer // Also got this one for my wedding as it had great reviews and ended up using it for years now. It is the best base if you are battling dry lips and want to wear dark or matte lipsticks. It evens out your lips and also hydrates them plus works at a great base to make it last longer.

essence matt blotting paper // A few years back I was on the search for blotting papers that worked and didn´t break the bank cause I honestly don´t want to pay 15 Euro for 20 little pieces of paper like some brands offer cause I sweat a lot in the summer and I need about 5 of them a day so I tried the essence matt blotting papers and they work great for me. I have purchased them over and over again and in summer time I probably have one in every bag I use.

Smashbox Spotlight Highlighter Palette // Got this for my wedding a few years back and I ended up loving it and using it on a daily base. The different highlighter shades are all gorgeous and can be build up so well or just a little. Depends on how much you like to wear. 

essence blush in color autumn peach // The best peachy blush I have ever found and it is so cheap. It is super hard to find a nice orange shade for the cheeks. I have been looking for years and never found one that is more perfect. It matches great with peachy lip colors and overall is a great shade to wear in the Fall.

MAC Fling brow pen // I have tried a ton of different brow pencils made of wet consitency and pens and gel but I ended up coming back to this one every single time cause it matches my brow color the best and it also lasts for the longest time, on my brow as well as the pencil itself. 

MAC Matte Lipstick in color Persistence // My most used nude lipstick. The color looks great for every season and I love that the coverage is super high. 

MAC Liner in color Spice // Matching lip liner to the MAC lipstick above. Came in a set as I purchased it but you can also get the items single. 

Real Techniques make-up sponge // A great alternative to the Real Beauty Blender as it is super soft and blends in all the make-up and concealer very well. You get two for the price of 10 Euro and I think that is perfectly fine. They also clean up real nice with brush soap. And a huge plus is if you like limited edition look at their site for the big holidays of the year cause they always come up with new patterns and colors. 

Sephora Collection powder foundation in color Petal // I tried this by accident cause I ended up forgetting a ton of stuff as we went on our honeymoon so I had to go to Sephora and purchase some things and I ended up trying this powder I now love. It is super covering and works great to seal of your make-up and keep it matte all  day. But it also looks great to wear by itself if you are going for a more natural look but don´t want  to be make-up less. I have been getting the color Petal for my skintone and always have about two of the powder foundations at home as back up cause you never know.

L´Oréal Paris Color Riche Lipstick in color Paris Cherry // My most used red lipstick. I absolutely love a darker shade of red. It is my go-to for fall and winter and fits a ton of my outfits too. The Color Riche lipsticks have an awesome texturen and smell and wear really well for the price of 10 Euros. I do have a ton of them but the Paris Cherry is my alltime favorite.

Sharing my opinion on make-up is always a lot of work and takes a lot of time to write it all down but I love make-up and love reading other make-up posts and I think it is so worth it comparing items before you finally pull the trigger as it can become very expensive to get all the products for a full face cover and would want to have the possible best working ones. 

Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow.

Happy Tuesday friends,

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

hopefully you had a good start into the new week. It is day 11 in home quarantine over here and we are still in a good mood. There are lots of things you can do to distract yourself for most of the day, at least for us. Maybe it is easy to say for me cause we don´t have any kids in the house yet (waiting on baby girl to make here appearance but she for sure is taking her sweet time) but it is still a ton of time to pass without having the opportunity to go anywhere than on a walk.

I wanted to share some activities which we included in our daily schedule so time will pass a little quicker or at all.

What to do at home…

1 // Read – Now is finally the time to dust of all the books in your shelves and finally start reading them or get some off from amazon. I always have a bunch on my wishlist I plan on purchasing from other reviews.

2 // Watch Netflix – The time probably won´t come again were it is acceptable to binge watch for days. There are tons of great shows on Netflix. I have done two round-ups you can read for inspo here and here.

3 // Make a puzzle – We got a 1000 piece puzzle and believe me this task is going to occupy a lot of your time and it is super calming. It has been years since I have done a puzzle and I have to admit I love it.

4 // Play board games – A great way to pass time and interact with your partner but I would only recommend if you aren´t highly competitive cause you at least have to stay inside for another two weeks.

5 // Organize your house – Not everyone´s favorite but definitley one over here. Amazon still ships so you can get all the container or inserts you would need to organize certain rooms/categories in your home like the pantry, your jewelry or beauty corner.

6 // Do online workout classes – Many gyms or/and even dance studios offer online workout classes or dancing lessons. A fun alternative to sporting outdoors and also spend productive time with your significant other. 

7 // Take daily walks – If you are still allowed to do so this is a task which should be done everyday. Getting in fresh air, movements and sunshine is super healthy for your body and mind which is really important at the moment.

8 // Try out new recipes- Definitely another reason for a daily number 7 cause with all that time on hand I have never tried out more different recipes than these days. I already made these delicious flourless peanut butter cookies from The Lemon Blonde and a Dutch Baby (an oven baked pancake) twice.

9 // Do your taxes – If you should get super bored despite all of the activities you can still do your taxes for last year.

I hope you are all staying healthy and as much home as possible so far. It is a difficult and strange time but it will also pass like so many others did before and we hopefully come out smarter and more resilient than before.
