My New Year's Resolutions

I am still very shocked that 2015 has come to an end so fast!
I got to do so many things this year and even though many plans of mine didn't work out, I still have some amazing memories.
I finished both my courses at Edinburgh College and graduated with an A in both French and Spanish, which I am very proud of.
I got into the University of Vienna and am now studying something that I am pretty interested in, and even though I still have to resit one exam in early February, I am happy that I already did pass one straight away.
Eryk and I went to Poland for our Summer Holidays and we had some amazing weeks there that I won't forget.
Unfortunately I had to leave behind my love, Eryk, in Scotland and make my way back to Vienna in order to study, which was a very hard decision and I am still very sad about the fact that we are separated again, but for this reason I am hoping for a better year. I hope that this year we will figure out a way to spend as much time together as possible.
Also, my little brother started school, which made a proud big sister.
A thing that I actually hated about the last months of this year was that I didn't have time to blog. It was because of my exams and I just didn't get to buy things/ wear things/ show things. But still, I gained a few new subscribers on my Youtube Channel  and I've also seen a little increase in my blog views, which made me happy.


For 2016 I want to achieve those things:
- I want to pass all the exams I need to.
- I want to move house and create a litte kingdom for myself.
- I want to plan my blog posts and schedule them, make sure I upload regularly and as often as possible.
- I want to make sure Eryk and I will meet often and make great memories over this year. <3
- I also want to eat a bit more healthy and try to exercise in my free time.
- I want to go on holidays somewhere nice with my Love. <3

Apart from that there is not much I could change as far as I'm concerned just now.

I hope your 2015 was a good one, and that 2016 will be even better!
Do you have any resolutions, plans already??

New Hair Cut + OOTD

Hello everybody!
Finally I have some time to blog again after all those busy Christmas days. There was definitely way too much food and I was either eating or laying with a full belly on the sofa over the last days.

But now that Christmas is over, it is time again to come back to normal life.
For this reason, I went to the hairdresser yesterday morning and decided it was time for a pretty big change. Then I met up with my cousin Kinga and we also had a stroll around town and some delicious pizza and then I had another toe nail "surgery" in the evening.


So, you all know how long my hair was and I am incredibly proud of it but since it's growing so fast and I have to wash and blow dry it so often too, it does get damaged, which you can't really see that much in photos. But I could see all those dry, split ends and the ends also felt very rough and it was just not the thick hair I used to have.
The hairdresser said she'd only cut off the ends and I said she could also chop off some more because I felt like more was needed but once I got to see the freshly cut hair, I have to admit that I was pretty shocked about how short it was. I didn't have such hair in 4 years I think!
But I am so happy now because I have my thick, healthy hair back and I also got it cut straight, without any layers or anything, which I also didn't have for about 8 years I think.
jacket - Marc O'Polo
striped top - Primark
loop scarf - Primark
jeggings - Pull&Bear
boots - Pepe Jeans




I still didn't really get used to the new length but every time I touch my hair I am so in love with the healthy ends!


I hope you all like it as well!
And I also hope you all had nice and calm Christmas days.

Empty Products - Winter Months

Hello everyone!
I guess this is my last post before Christmas, even though I really wanted to do one about Christmas outfit ideas, like I did last year, but since I've already packed for Poland, I can't show you now what I want to wear this year. But I have to say that I packed all of those dresses, which means that most likely I'll wear exactly the same things that I did last year!

But back to the topic of today's post: It's empties time again!
I really waited until our last full day in Vienna before going to Poland to write this post ( finally!). I've collected way too many products this time, but this is due to the fact that I'm not doing empties posts regularly ( which is a big mistake).

So let's start with make-up removers. I don't know how I managed to use up so many of them!
My tiny Bioderma Sebium micellar water was emptied some time ago before I decided to finish off my Hydrabio one, because it was still half full. I really like both of them and if you speak German you can check out here what I have to say about the Bioderma micellar water. ( you can also find this video on Bioderma Austria's fanpage on Facebook!)
I'm a huge Bioderma fan ( obviously) and since they do not only cleanse my face but also remove all of my make-up, they are very handy and easy to use. 

Another micellar water I really got to like is the Bourjois one for waterproof make-up ( but I use this one for removing make-up only). It has a reasonable price and I always stock up in Poland. But what I don't like about it too much is that it spills quite a lot, meaning that you always have way too much of the water on your cotton pad and it gets empty very quickly.

Then I also got those Quickies eye make-up removing pads in my Pink Parcel that I subscribed back in the UK. I loved it during summer and had it with me everywhere because the packet is just so tiny and I was using it for removing my no make-up make-up but also for sticky hands after having ice cream or waffles with cream or whatever you eat outside during summer.
However, when I wanted to use them just a month ago I believe, the remaining pads have completely dried out and I had to throw them away.

Next: hair products! I've been using the shampoos that were at home so one used up bottle is the Head&Shoulders citrus fresh shampoo which is pretty okay in my opinion and then the Pantene Pro-V anti dandruff, which I liked more, but I still prefer the smooth & silky version.
Unfortunately I emptied the Batiste can of the limited edition scent 'eden'. What I liked a lot about it was the beautiful smell and also the fact that I could go with another extra day without washing my loong hair. I know that for me it doesn't make my greasy hair look incredible, but better than it would look like without using it, which is a good thing.
I also got a parcel with some Tigi Bed Head samples of their brunette range. I've used their Fashionista brunette shampoo, conditioner and hair mask. I loved the cocoa/coconut smell but the shampoo was brown and didn't look too refreshing actually. But still, my hair felt and looked nice after using the hair mask and I was quite satisfied with the products.
Another hair mask I've recently used ith the L'biotica biovax with natural oils that I discovered last summer and loved it straight away! Again, this makes my hair look and feel beautiful, which means that I need to try and get more of it!


I've used up my two L'Occitane en Provence shower products; the Almond shower oil and the jasmin and bergamote shower gels. I've absolutely enjoyed using both. Their quality is simply amazing and the smell is impressive too! Also, thr desing of those little bottles was something that I liked a lot!
You can read more about them here!

One of my favourite deodorants is the gofresh by Dove, with the pomegranate scent, and this is just a gigantic can that Eryk once got me back in Scotland. The smell is fresh and fruity/floral which is great and not too heavy.

What else is already used up is my Bi-Oil. I received it in the mail and started using it the same day. After just a month it was all gone and I was sad because I believe this is a great product. I was using  it every day on my stretchmarks and I discovered some new ones, that were invisible within 4 days! 
I definitely recommend this for fresh stretchmarks, because it really does help at that stage! ( Plus it leaves your skin moisturised, soft and beautiful smelling!)

My favourite perfume, Cherry in the air by Escada is already all gone too since this was a limited edition perfume it is SO hard to get it anywhere now. It is very fruity and sweet, but also fresh, what I really love about a perfume. I've had it for a couple of years now and if I'll find it somewhere I'll be happy to buy it once again.

 
The last two products are some face products again: mascara and face mask.
I got the Avon Super Extend Extreme mascara two or three years ago for Christmas and I was so excited to use it since I've had an Avon mascara before this one and I absolutely loved the other one.
However, this one turned out to be very watery and it only gave my lashes a bit of length, but they were not lifted/curled nor thickened so this mascara didn't really do much. I did use it for my bottom lashes though for a long time as it worked well there. With time I've been using it less often until it dried out some time ago. This mascara has a silicon wand which I always actually liked, so I'll clean it and use it for something else.

And last but not least the Superdrug Superfruits Exfoliating mask. It is super cheap, the smell is beautiful, it works so well that I bought a few of the sachets at once and I've been using it throughout my time in Scotland and also in Vienna I still had two or three left. Now I've run out of all of them and that's not too great because it did give my face an incredible cleanse, leaving it super soft without any blackheads or dry patches of skin. It is amazing!

That was all of my empties! As soon as I get about 5 empties or so I'll do an empties post because if I collect too many over time, it is just much more difficult to summarise them all!


I wish you all a Merry Christmas! We're heading to Poland tomorrow and I am pretty excited but also very sad due to the fact that Eryk won't be there. :(

Pre-Christmas Vlog

I can't believe that Christmas is already in 4 days!
Time flies by way too quickly and I'm shocked I've already had my first uni exams.
The previous weeks have been so stressful for me with all the revision I had to do but now it's over- at least for some time.
I passed one out of two exams, which means that I need to resit the second one in February, but I hope that by then it will all be good.


Now I'll finally have one or two weeks off before I start revising again, so I can finally relax and have some time for myself, and my family.

Here's the vlog, where you can see and hear everything that was going on last week!

And also don't forget to check the link in the description box, to see what I was doing exactly one year ago! :)

Hope you're all having a good and calm pre-Christmas time! :)

Goldwell Kerasilk Control Shampoo & Hair Mask

After a long break I am back and am very excited to share some beautiful products with you!
A few weeks back I got a Goldwell Kerasilk Control shampoo and hair mask and first of all I was amazed by the design of those products. They look so luxurious with thei gold packaging, very classic without any patterns or anything. And they have the most beautiful smell ever! I would say theu smell like premium fragrance- just so luxurious unique.


The shampoo and mask are actually high-quality salon products and I have to say that I am in love with them!
This range is created to smoothen your hair and it has brilliant colour protection too.
During the process of washing my hair earlier on I could already feel the difference between this shampoo and my usual one. The hair is immediately smooth and so silky like never before!
I haven't used the mask yet because I was in a hurry, but I will pamper myself after this stressful week is over.
The mask comes with a lid that you screw off and then there is another lid to lift off plus a spatula, which is so great because you don't have to stick your whole hands into the tub opening to get the mask out.

If you have long hair that is a bit difficult to handle and that needs a bit of help- those two products will be a great solution for you!
And also, since Christmas is just around the corner- this range of products would make a great gift to an important girl/ woman in your life!


Did you already get all Christmas gifts for your dearest ones? I actually haven't yet and I am starting to be nervous because of it if I'm honest!

A Bit Of Retail Therapy

Uni is a bit too much for me at the moment because I study all the time but I still have more to revise than I already did by now and this is just a nightmare! (since I have 9 days left!)
And on top of that I had a dentist appointment this morning, and the dentist is pretty much my biggest fear in life. I absolutely can't stand even knowing that one day I'll need to go back for an appointment.
And today I didn't have the most relaxing appointment cause I had to get two fillings and got so much anestethics because the pain was unbelievable. I was mentally tired after that, so my mum and I went to do some Christmas shopping and I got myself two early Christmas gifts too. ( And I think I deserve a little treat after all the stress I've been through over the last weeks. I mean the stress will go on until I've passed my exams, but still)


I got this super cute make-up bag and a beautifully scented candle.
The make-up bag was too pretty and too handy not to buy!

It is made of two pouches that are connected at the bottom and you can close the two halves with a clasp on the top. Both pouches have zippers in order to keep everything inside safely and on the inside ( i.e. when you open the clasp and pull apart the pouches) there are see through sides, which is so practical because you see all of your make-up immediately withouth having to shuffle around everything twice until you finally find the piece you're looking for.
It is also pretty big compared to my previous make-up bags but now my brushes and all of the make-up and skincare I use wil fit in and I'll have everything at one spot.

And then I saw this candle box and opened it to smell the candle and I fell in love! Since I am a huge scented candle smell, I always have to check out all the candles in the shops and I've never had a candle from this brand before, but this candle I picked today is just a dream! It's such a beautiful, calm, relaxing smell and I can't wait to finally burn it. Although I'll probably find it too sad using it up. But it looks so pretty! ( and it also smells the same obviously!)


I hope you'll forgive me my absence but as I mentioned in the beginning I have ABSOLUTELY no time for blogging, and I also don't want to scribble down some quick, crappy posts either.
So I was thinking of posting a bit less now until the exams are over- because they are my priority now.

Just now I'm waiting for my friend Julia, who can be seen here in our latest video that we made together, and we are gonna try and study a bit for those exams.

Have a nice afternoon everyone! :)

Bioderma Micellar Water Video

Some time ago I was talking about a project I'm working on and now that it's already filmed and up on my Youtube channel I can finally say what it was. Obviously, I was quite excited and now that it's live I think I'm even more excited and proud!
I am so happy that I got such an amazing opportunity!
So, my friend Julia and I were filming a video for Bioderma Austria about the famous Micellar water, because now Bioderma products are also available in some Viennese pharmacies, which is great and I've been waiting for this for so long!


Since my friend and I both have different skin types we could test two different versions of the Micellar Water and we filmed our impressions etc.
I'd appreciate it if you'd go and check out the video, even though it is in German, but maybe there is someone here who's never heard of Bioderma, so they can go and see what it looks like!


We had an amazing time filming this and I have to say that it was Julia's first "blogging" experience and I think she did so well!
It was so hard to talk in German about beauty- I totally got used to English over time and I was pretty surprised that I was also making mistakes and saying passages over and over again until I got them right!

I'd be happy if you gave it a thumbs up anyways and if you subscribed, if you haven't yet.
Of course, I will continue uploading the usual English videos! Don't worry! :)

Anatomicals Product Review


Today I'm back on the blog with a couple of goodies from Anatomicals. 
So I got a lip balm, a joint & muscle rub and three face masks to present to you.

The first thing I have to say about those products is: How cool is that design?! It's so simple but then again the product descriptions are so on point and you really get what you need.

The lip balm seriously got my favourite lip product and this is the only thing I'm wearing on my lips lately! It's a lip balm that smells so, so good of cherries and it's called " Never lose your cherry"! It's such a fruity, summery smell that I sometimes open the tube just to smell it. Seriously. 
It is a clear gloss, with absolutely no colour actually, so you could also wear it on top of a lipstick to achieve a glossy look. 
The size of the lipgloss also seems so generous to me. You get 15 ml in this squeezy tube and I feel like those kind of glosses are usually way smaller.
I carry this lipgloss with me everywhere because I absolutely love it! If you have the chance to get it- get it!

The sachet with the zombie woman turning into a pretty woman is filled with three different face masks called "Now you're ready to face the world" and I've used one of them so far. Below you can see what masks you find inside:
-Farewell the scarlet pimperhell - a deep cleansing mud mask
-grease isn't the word. ( tell me more, tell me more) - a mattifying face mask
and - look, you've got chocolate all over your face - an anti-stress face mask

I used the mud mask because I wanted to cleanse my face properly because I do struggle with blackheads and dry bits of skin around spots. I picked this mask because it just sounded like the perfect solution for my problems. I left it on for 10-15 minutes and then washed it off and ta-dah: I have a smooth and clean face! Success!

And the last product seemed to me like such a random, joke item. It's called " Ta-ta ooh ouch aah" and it's a rub for your sore joints and muscles and that's what I have most of the time unfortunately. So it kind of made me laugh but then on the other hand I was again thinking: That's actually something that I could really need!
And very quickly one of those evenings came around that left me laying in bed with terribly sore knees and then I decided that it was time to test this product. What I have to say about it is that it stinks. I have no idea which of the ingredients it is but it definitely is not a product you want to have near your face/ nose. But it gave me a cool, relaxing feeling on the knees and I guess this is what it should do. Obviously, I get really bad pains, which means that this won't let the pain disappear completely, but it's definitely a good product to try when you are in light pain.

To conclude I'd like to say that those products are seriously great and also so affordable, so I'd go totally crazy if I saw them in a shop ( but I haven't so far in Vienna).
Let me know if you've tried Anatomicals products already! :)


Have a great day everyone!

My November Favourites

November is already coming to an end, which means that Christmas time is pretty much an official thing now, even though it doesn't feel like it's nearly December already.
I am a bit nervous and not too excited for the time before Christmas actually since I'll have my uni exams and I am still not prepared and so stressed out. That's also the reason why I don't get to blog too much recently- I just have so much to study all day long!

But today is a good day to share my November Beauty Favourites with you.
( It looks like I'm actually ill because of some suspicious symptoms but I will find out more later in the afternoon when I go to the GP, which means that I don't go to uni today I think, and that's why I have time to write this entry)

I've used the products below pretty much daily over the last weeks of November and most of them aren't new, but I had a little break from them and kind of "rediscovered" the this month.
I've had the Bourjois Delice de Poudre bronzer for ages now and I had a short break from it and was using a different bronzer at that time, but now I am back to this one and I have to say that it really is a great product to have in your make-up stash!
First of all, it has a reasonable price if you think about all the years you're gonna be using this bronzer. It is pretty much impossible to use it up in like 5 years I think.
It is very well pigmented with tiny bits of sparkle for a bit of a highlight. It smells like chocolate - which obviously is another big plus, and you can get the bronzer in a couple of different shades, so it's suitable for several types of skin.

Then I also came back to my well beloved Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in the shade 1 ( that I bought three of when leaving the UK). Since I had a pretty tan over summer I couldn't use this concealer because it was too light, but now I use it again and it looks fine, which I'm really happy about. I do have pretty dark undereye circles and this seems to be the best solution I've found so far. Especially for the price of around £4! I'd say they usually last me for one to two months but I've been using this concealer for a year and a half now and I have to say that I love it!

Next I have included my Original Source Vanilla&Raspberry shower gel, that again I've been using over a year ago back in Scotland and now got it again and I feel so sentimental about it because the smell just reminds me of my life in the UK. I also filmed a video about Original Source recently, so you can head over to my YT channel to watch it for my opinion about this shower gel! :)

What is nothing new is also the Golden Rose matte lipstick in the shade 12. I've had it for over two years now if I'm not wrong and I love it so much. It is a dusty pink shade that is pretty similar to my actual lip colour, which makes it look pretty natural on me. That's why I can wear this lipstick all around the year without being worried that the colour wouldn't be suitable for a specific season.
Since it's matte, it stays on for a long time without really fading ( I usually wear it all day long) and it doesn't make my lips dry either, which is great. It stays where you put it on and this is important!
Again, this was such a bargain that I regret not buying more of those.

The Wibo lip liner is something I bought last summer and figured out it would match the Golden Rose lipstick well. And I love wearing them together because my lips look so much nicer than without the lipliner and the lipliner doesn't look darker/lighter next to the lipstick. This is a great combo and the lipliner was a bargain too, so I decided to take all my lipsticks to the drugstore once I'm back in Poland and just find a matching lipliner for all my lipsticks. 

And I have two new products this month which are worth mentioning!
The first one is the Anatomicals Never Lose Your Cherry lipgloss. I'm sure you can get those from Urban Outfitters and online if you're interested. What I have to say about the lipgloss; The smell is INSANE! The sweet smell of cherry automatically makes me happier and it reminds me of a Polish drink calles Tymbark, which you can buy in the cherry flavour and it's just such a Polish thing to me that I really love.
The lipgloss is totally transluscent so it only leaves your lips glossy adding no colour to them, so it's great for just every day make-up, or on top of a lipstick etc.
I also like the applicator, because you only have to squeeze out a little bit of the gloss and spread it on your lips and you're ready to go!

And the last product for today is my new mascara ( it's pretty unusual for me to buy a new mascara because I usually stick to my Rimmel Scandaleyes Lycraflex one). I got this mascara because I've seen so, so many positive reviews about it everywhere on the internet. I had the Benefit Rollerlash mascara before and I absolutely loved it but since it's rather expensive, I didn't repurchase it yet.
Now after that Benefit boom, this Maybelline Sensational mascara came out and people were actually saying this was a dupe for the Rollerlash ( just half its price).
This has been going on for months now and I finally decided to try it out myself. I got the mascara in a set with a golden one too for not even 10 Euro a few weeks back.
I have to say that the brush looks kind of exactly like the Roller lash one and the consistency is also more liquid than thick. So I was very curious about the effect.
Now, my opinion is that this mascara does make my lashes look longer but it often happens that they only get really thick and clumpy but they stay short and then I get really angry because I don't remember this happening with the Rollerlash. But still, if you apply the mascara carefully, using not too much of it and adding a second coat, the lashes look really good. Even though I have the impression that the Rollerlash was actually a bit better.
But for that price it is surely a good buy!

That's all for today and I hope you enjoy those products as much as I do! Also, let me know what products are your favourites at the moment, I'd be happy to hear!

Now I'm off to eat something and start editing the vlog before I go to the GP later on.
Have a nice weekend everyone!

Original Source Shower Gel Review + Video!

Hello everybody!
Today I'm back with something rather cool because I'm gonna write a little bit about Original Source's shower gel ( and I am maybe a little obsessed with shower gel...). I also filmed a video over on my YT channel that you should definitely watch, where you can find out more about those goodies!



A few weeks ago I got 7 different shower gels and I am in love with most of them already.
The most important thing about Original Source products is that their products are all vegan, made in the UK AND not tested on animals!! Still, they are very affordable and in the UK they are available in every grocery store! ( Pretty much what I miss a lot about living in Edinburgh).

My favourite is definitely the Vanilla Raspberry one, which I was already writing about, a long time ago here, I also mentioned that situation in the video if you're curious why this one is my favourite. ;)

I totally recommend this brand because of its great natural scents. I'm sure there's a thing for everyone!

My OOTD: Fluffy Jumper And Cosy Coat

Hello everyone!
I am really sorry that I wasn't here for a while now, but uni somehow gets pretty stressful just now with all the upcoming exams. I try to study every spare minute because it is so much that I have to know that I'd like to cry and stay in bed all day long.

Today I'm again off to a lecture but I decided to show you my outfit before I go. I actually wanted to take photos outside but I'm alone and there's nobody who could help me. And after uni the light will already be too bad to get nice snaps. ( Although I have to say that the quality of those photos is pretty bad too)
I decided to wear my cosy coat today again, because it is cooling down again after all those pretty hot days. But I'm wearing Vans to not look too wintery.
creme cosy coat - Primark
fluffy pastel jumper - Only
high waisted jeans - Topshop
shoes - Vans
I got this jumper a few days ago and I'm in love! It's actually tight on the skin and you can really feel that it keeps you warm. And it is so soft and cosy too! I think this will be my favourite jumper this winter! ;)

Underneath the jumper I'm wearing a little black crop top from Primark that I actually love to bits. I usually wear it underneath jumpers since it's not too cold yet, but when we get to uni it's just so hot that you have to take everything off for a few minutes to cool down. So instead of wearing a normal top I wear a crop so I don't get too hot and sweaty actually.

I also love the jeans because they fit me perfectly and are also quite high waisted, which I like too. ( It does get a bit risky though once I've eaten too much!)
And also look at my hair! When it's all straight on my back it actually goes beneath my hip bones already and this is just crazy! I only had it cut back in Summer and I already should go to the hairdresser's again.

And the bag I use for uni is just my FOSSIL leopard tote because it's the biggest bag I have, so it's just very convenient.

And a last selfie of my face to show you my make-up: I'm wearing some decent eyeliner and nothing on my lips so far. I'll be only applying some lipgloss and that will be me done for uni!

Hope you enjoyed this outfit!
Also make sure to check out the previous vlog before tomorrow's will be live!

Have a nice day! :)

L'Occitane En Provence Skin Care


A few weeks ago I got to try a few products of the brand L'Occitane En Provence and I got really excited about it. Their natural products give you a feeling of well-being and a bit of luxury too- which means they are great for having a nice pamper night now and then!


As you can tell from the picture, I found a few very nice goodies in my parcel and unfortunately I started using them straight away before even taking nice pictures. ( sorry, got too excited!)
There is everything you need to treat your entire body: face masks, shower gel and shower oil, body lotion, hand cream and perfume!

The delightful rose hand cream is so tiny and cute and just fits into every bag (or even pocket!), which is great because having a hand cream with you when out in winter is really important and useful.
Unlike the body lotion, this is a rather thick cream but also soaks into your skin quickly and well. The smell is actually very intense, and I'm not the biggest fan of rose-scented products, but when my hands get dry and sore I don't really care about the smell of the cream as long as it helps!

The parcel also included two little sachets of perfume, which I actually liked-it's sweet and has a floral scent at the same time. One sachet could be used twice I guess- but it's a nice sample to try out before buying a whole bottle of perfume that you maybe wouldn't like in the end.

The Jasmin&Bergamote shower gel cleanses the skin, leaving it delicately fragranced with a sensual and luminous scent. I absolutely love the smell of it- it stays on for so long that it almost seems like I'm wearing perfume after showering.

Also, the cleansing and softening Almond shower oil, which is already empty, was a product I've absolutely loved! The consistency is a bit weird because it changes into foam when in contact with water. I've never used anything like it before but I was impressed! My skin was left very soft and silky and again, the smell was just beautiful!

And to finish off the little treatment, the ultra rich body lotion can be used.
It's a pretty liquid lotion and you don't need a big amount to ensure your body is being moisturised well. The only thing I don't like about this is the smell. It has a heavy, "granny-like" cream smell, that I don't really enjoy, but I'm sure the lotion itself is very good!


 And then I also got two more body moisturisers and a face mask that I haven't used yet but can't wait to do so very soon!
The Jasmin-Immortelle Neroli Body lotion and the Almond Milk Concentrate sound so nice smelling that I am actually a bit angry with myself that I haven't used them yet, but I couldn't find the right time to take photos of all those beauties, so I kind of couldn't have used them yet either.

I will probably use the Rebalancing Face Mask later today to prep myself a bit before another week of uni starts. I've been a bit ill since Friday morning and even had to call in sick at work yesterday. which gave me a day to rest without any stress really. I did study though!
I think after those 3 days of feeling quite miserable, I deserve a little pamper evening before all the busy days start again!

A Vienna Sightseeing Vlog

Last week was quite a busy one for me again, but it started off with some AMAZING weather with temperatures reaching up to 20-something degrees here in Vienna! I was actually tanning on the balcony! ( feels like summer, but it's November??)
I was pretty much only at uni all week long and then one day, since it was SO warm, we went on an evening motorcycle trip around Vienna, which was so, so nice and impressive.
And then yesterday I had a day off so I went to the city centre again and had a long stroll around the 1st district of Vienna, which is just so beautiful- especially when it's so sunny and warm that you can actually take your time to have a proper walk around the little unknown streets and so on.

This vlog is pretty much a sightseeing tour for all the people who don't live here! :D So make sure to check it out!

Have a nice weekend everyone! :)

My October Beauty Favourites Video

Today I finally managed to film a video about my October Beauty Favourites, since I didn't manage to upload a post about them for such a long time.
I hope it is still acceptable to have it up that late, but I wanted to make sure I actually do it, rather than not doing it at all in case someone was really curious!



I would be really happy if you watched the video and if you'd give it a thumbs up! :)
Enjoy!


Thank you for watching! :)

My OOTD: Denim Dress (+ Motorbike Outfit)

Hello everyone!
The last couple of days were just incredibly warm ( up to over 20 degrees!) and I really like this weather I have to say.
I like it because I can wear something more fun than just a pair of jeans and a jumper.
So, recently I got this denim look dress from H&M, very spontaneously, but I thought it was pretty cool.

Excuse my rather chubby face in this picture. It was also very windy, hence the weird hair!

dress- H&M
black cardigan - ZARA
black faux leather jacket - Pimkie
leopard tote bag - FOSSIL
black 100 den tights - Primark
black leather loafers - Clarks
floral viscose scarf - local Polish shop

I've had this scarf for years now and only rediscovered it yesterday when going for a ride on the motorcycle. :D
In case you wonder about this outfit: jeans- H&M, shoes-Vans, neopren jacket- Hein Gericke, the kidney/back safety thing-Dainese, fancy gold bag- H&M, jumper- H&M, helmet- Shark ( it's mine btw, not my dad's! hahah)

Back to today's outfit:
This dress is made of a nice stretchy material,so it's very easy to walk in even though it looks pretty tight.
It is also a bit longer than the things I usually go for, but you can't tell in the pictures because when I walk it pulls up automatically because of the tights. ( good that it's not shorter then)

And then- the back cut-out. I felt like this is a cool everyday kind of dress for autumn/winter with a cosy cardigan, but it can also be used as a party dress because it is not as plain as it looks at first. And I quite like that!
What else I really like about it is that it is so fitted and that my waist looks so pretty and skinny. But then again, I can't really eat too much because my belly will look very bad in this! :D

Let me know what you think of that dress, I've worn it twice to uni now and it really is so comfy (+ affordable!) and I'm pretty much in love!

Hello November!


I can't believe that it is already November and that Christmas is pretty much just around the corner now.
Time flies so fast- one month of Uni is already over, and I should study so much for my upcoming exams, but I just somehow don't really manage to since I already feel a bit overwhelmed with all the lectures throughout the week. I feel like I have absolutely no time for myself...

Yesterday, on the 1st, we had a family walk around the cemetery and then we came to our house and had some food and lots of hot tea. I really enjoyed it, such a nice day off.

Today I got up pretty early and my dad and I went for a small shopping day out, so I got myself a few things and am considering a collective autumn haul video. Let me know id you'd be interested in one!

So now, already two days of November are over already and it just drives me crazy!
My Uni exams are in December and I don't even feel that I know anything at all yet. This makes me a bit worried and also stressed out.

My main goal for November is to finally start studying, which means that I need to organise my days/ weeks. I'll see how it goes.

Hope this month will be a good one, a positive one and that it won't go by as quickly as October did.

Friday - Vlogday

Hello everyone!
I am so sorry that I don't post much lately but my life has gone pretty plain and boring because of uni. Everything I do during the day is get up and ready for uni, attend the lectures, come back home late. And then obviously, Saturdays I'm working too, which is another day where I can't really blog.

However, this week was pretty exciting and busy because of the National Holiday in Austria, we also went out and in between the lectures we even managed to do some shopping - which is great.



If you want to see what this week looked like , check out the vlog now!




Also, enjoy Halloween and have a nice night out with your friends! I'll be working all day long tomorrow and will probably be so exhausted afterwards that I will come back home and just sit in my bed with a nice cup of tea and some sweet treats!
