When my bestie Vivien moved to New York in winter 2016, I knew this meant that I am going to have a second (or rather third) home to stay – yay! Back then, I always dreamed of going to New York and find out whether the big Apple really was how it is always portrayed in the movies. So I went to visit her in March last year, and of course, being the geeky tourist that I am, I made her go to all the famous places (that she had already seen 1000times) with me – Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge… Well, you have to cover the New York basics first, don’t you?! I was overwhelmed by the vibrancy of the city and I absolutely loved it. Anyway, I promised that I will come again to visit… and this is exactly what I have done only a few weeks ago! This time however, things were a little bit different …
The search for the right products for your skin type can be long, exhausting and often seems never ending. I always had acne-prone skin and when I was younger I was willing to try eeeeverything that seemed promising in helping my skin clear up. I went online, read through various reviews for hours and then simply bought everything that a person with beautiful skin claimed would work. Unfortunately, that did not only cost me a lot of money, but also a lot of nerves. At some point I arrived to the conclusion that nothing will help me and that I simply had to live with my acne-prone skin. I changed my routine from time to time, never really having felt a huge difference. But now that I am basically in my mid-twenties, my skin has changed and I realized, so should my beauty routine. I need something more sophisticated. I heard a lot about Kiehl’s Ultra Facial products and decided to give it a try. Kiehl’s is one of America’s oldest skin care brands and positions itself like a pharmaceutical rather than a beauty brand – interesting! Thanks again to Feelunique for providing me with the opportunity to test their products! Continue Reading
I really don’t know what took me so long to finally take some photos at the most famous place in Copenhagen – Nyhavn! Yes, its the spot at the water with „all those colorful houses“ everyone always talks about. And yes, I absolutely love it there, too! Although I am living here now for half a year and I really do not feel like a tourist anymore, it still feels weird realizing that I live in Scandinavia now. If you would have asked me two years ago, Denmark would probably not even be on the list of potential places to live in next for me. Continue Reading
Is taking selfies a skill – can you actually learn how to take the perfect selfie? Well, I say absolutely yes! Funnily, I already took selfies when I was 14 years old with my Mum’s big digital camera and uploaded them on my MySpace profile… yup, I guess I always had a thing for social media, haha. But back then, however, nobody called these kind of pictures „selfies“ … until this word was invented and suddenly selfies became a thing. On YouTube you can even find video of girls teaching you how to take the perfect selfie. But don’t worry guys, it’s not rocket science – that’s why I am showing you today how, even as a beginner, to take the perfect selfie with only two ingredients: 1) The right lighting, and 2) Manhattan INSTA products for contouring and highlighting!
I am the spontaneous kind of person. I never thought that I would be able to say that as I was pretty shy and rather insecure as a teenager. But the many times I got thrown into the cold water just made me realize that not everything needs careful preparation nor a detailed plan – „just doing it“ might be exactly the right starting point. Besides, spontaneity is is simply way more exciting, and I love that! So… booking trips to diverse places has become my favorite spontaneous thing to do. Also, spontaneously putting outfits together, like this female suit, has turned out to be just so, so right! Let me tell you about it …
I must admit, these photos were taken within an intense study session, realizing that it might be time for my first post in 2018. But you guys know how it is around Christmas and New year’s … it’s basically the only real break in the whole year and with all the heavy and good food you just get lazy, and lazy, and lazy. And then you wake up, noticing you gotta go back to life and all the responsibilities, which actually feels quite refreshing after days of being a useless, inactive person, haha. So since I’m back in Copenhagen I am back to my student/blogger/somuchmore life. Continue Reading
I moved to Copenhagen this summer – as I was enjoying the long and bright days, I was already scared of the cold and dark days to come in winter. Everyone was like Yea, soak up the sun as long as you can – the darkness is going to be here sooner than you think. I am a very outgoing person and waking up to sunshine gives me new energy for the day. So, how am I supposed to make it through the winter? Continue Reading
… well, first of all: Happy Second Advent! Hope you’ll have a sweet and calm day!
Second of all… I want to talk about flared pants! We have come a long way from low-waist skinny jeans, over to Mom Jeans and now it seems like wide pants, and also flared pants have gained their acceptance back! During the last years, the fashion industry wanted to show us how cool flared pants are, but failed every time. We have seen them all over the runways, but nobody really embraced. It just was not time for flared pants yet – out mind still associated them too much with the 70s.. the shock was still too deep. I mean, oh boy did it take us long to get over skinny jeans and jeggings! I’m super glad now that we can wear denim that does not completely squeeze our legs. Continue Reading
I know, I know. Since I am in Copenhagen I haven’t really taken any photos that show you how beautiful the city actually is. Although, I already know so many pretty spots that I want to share with you. But you know, settling down in a new city is not something that takes place within 1 to 2 months, not even within 3 or 4 months! Even though you want everything to be all set and done – knowing your way around, having found your favorite cafés and restaurants, and of course, meeting the people that become your friends – it takes a lot of time and effort to get there.
