Happy Tuesday friends,

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.

My Amazon Buys – February…

….

Happy Monday,

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

it is finally March which means we are closer to Spring which hopefully means warmer weather and Spring looks and the other great event which hopefully takes place this month is giving birth to our baby girl.

But for now and since we are still waiting on everything I am sharing my February Amazon buys with you guys.

Golden Rectangular Earrings // I finally ordered another pair of these adorable golden earrings. Haven´t gotten them now but I really hope they arrive this time cause the mail has lost my first pair already. This style will work great with so many looks I have planned for spring and summer. Gold jewelry always looks best with a tan in the summer.

Baby´s First Year Blanket + Cards // Can´t wait to use this with baby girl. Really great quality of the muslin blanket and sturdy number cards. I think the set has a great value for under 25 Euro.

Set of Braided Headbands // If you are following my blog you might know I am a headband lover from the first second so I am always looking for new styles and colors I don´t have and let me tell you, this set of three is so comfortable also how gorgeous is the deep royal blue color!!!!!

Flanell Bow Headband // Saw this on a bunch of bloggers and reminded me of my childhood cause I had a piece like this when I was little. There are several styles available but of course I ended up getting the leopard print one. I am using it every evening when I am washing/cleaning my face.

Salad Chopper // Ordered this to chop my salad as I hate having big chunks of salad on my plate. It literally make me cook less salad cause I hate the messy eating. This is abolute perfect for it. Also works great with spaghetti if you like to eat them with a spoon and no mess.

Simple Modern Water Bottle // Pregnant or not, you are supposed to drink a lot of water to keep your body hyrated so I got this adorable water color in the mother-of-pearl color. Keep my water super cool which I prefer over anything else but it also comes with a second lid for hot beverages. So the cooling function will work the other way around too.

Hair Turban // I had one of these when I was younger – why are all of my hair accessories missing these days  – so I got this one again. It has a button on the back so it holds all the wet hair perfectly after washing and the material is supposed to soak up all the excesive water that´s left in your hair to dry it quicker.

Beaded Pink Earrings // Perfect for Spring so why not?!

Cribsheet // Going to read this step by step. Depends on how far we are with baby girl but it it works until age two if I remember correctly. Holds tons of information. Definitely work a read.

Meat Masher // Super basic but totally convenient for cooking any type of minced meat. Provides lumps and everything will be cooked through equally. Also the consistency of the product you are using it on gets a lot smoother.

Hospital Nightgown // I always feel a lot more comfortable in my own clothes so I got this hospital inspired night gown. It has buttons alongside the back in case you need/want an epidural so it is basically designed for this case.

Nipple Cream // Going to need this one from what I hear.

Letter Necklace // Got this in addition to my mama necklace with the letter E for our baby girl´s name. I love wearing both of them mixed together as the lenghts pair perfectly. Also available in silver if you aren´t a gold fan.

Pepper Spray // Not necessarily a must but I am walking Chloe most of the days alone so I am feeling better having something on me. Also I am not the fastest anymore so a little more precaution can´t hurt.

GG Statement Earrings // Hopefully they arrive soon cause aren´t they just beautiful with all the different colors.

Rolling Stones inspired Sweater // The number one sweater I have seen everywhere the last few weeks. I love mine a lot. Got a size small since they only sell unisex sizes and it still fits with the bump, thight but fits. Separate outfit post coming soon.

It has been a lot of stuff I have found this month but it also included some baby/pregnancy related products which I clearly need for my hospital bag (going to share all of these items in a different post but first I have to find out which ones I really need and which ones are good/crap).

Hello and welcome back to my blog,

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

since I haven´t done much to review the year of 2019 I decided to at least share my favorite in 2019 discovered beauty tools with you. They all have helped me tremendously in getting ready everyday and overall made life a lot easier.

So I am starting right away. 

Top 6 Beauty Tools of 2019

One Step Hair Dryer Brush // I have seen the Revlon one step hair dryer brushes all over and everybody who was testing it was quite satisfied so I finally wanted to order one for myself and guess what – they had been sold out everywhere I looked so I went on amazon and found this dupe version of it for a much better price and I love it. I can´t tell if it has the exact same amount of power but it looks very similar and the end result is the same. I always hated to dry my hair after washing it and went to bed with wet hair an uncountable amount of times which ended in really bad hair or still wet hair the next morning. So this tool definitely makes my live easier and it does it quick too.

Mini Fan // This helped a lot to dry my setting spray after doing my make-up and I use it every time. Saves a lot of time. 

Remington Hot Rollers // I had these for a  few years not but started using them again a lot this year. They are the easiest way to get a lot of volume into your hair that stays the day. 

T3 Curling Wand // I actually got this for Christmas last year and it has been my most used tool ever since. I curl my hair once a week and my curls last about 4 to 5 days. The wand has three different barells but I only used the middle one so far. This product is pricey but in my opinion it is totally worth it. 

LED Make-Up Mirror // Great tool if you are doing your make-up in dark spaces or in the early mornings were there is no light at all. I have a very similar version to this mirror and use it daily. It runs on batteries but they last pretty long. It has a touch screen and also comes with an extra mini mirror with a 10 times enlargement.

Jade Roller // A jade roller is the perfect tool if you want to depuff your eyes in the morning and also get the eye cream in really deep. If you store it in your fridge it is even better for your under eye area as the cold helps with the swelling and shrinking your pores. They are super affordable but of course you can also get the crystal versions for a lot more money. They look cute but I honestly doubt that they have a different effect.

Most of the pieces are off from amazon which means they are in for prime shipping. I am going to do another tops from 19 post regarding my personal best beauty products for you.
