Beauty Empties June

Have I ever told you how much pleasure I take in emptying beauty products? It has even come to the point where my boyfriend congratulates me for using up a bottle of shampoo. Crazy, I know! And I don't even know why that is. Maybe because it will give me something to write about on the blog, or because I like using new products, or because I still have 4 drawers full of beauty products that I want to use up before I'm an old lady... Anyway this month was a pretty good one when it comes to emptying pleasures! #crazycatlady #crazybeautylady


Snapchatters To Follow For Berlin Fashion Week Insights

I already announced it but let's say it again because I'm so excited: This season I will be going to Berlin Fashion Week! If you've ever been to Berlin you know how relaxed and casual the city is, and that's how I expect the German fashion week to be like as well. I know that in Berlin they pay much attention to small local designers, rather than international big brands. And that's why I think I will be able to relate with the collections and the events, much more than I would in Paris or Milan.
Last season I already intensely followed the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin, mainly thanks to Snapchat! Whoever still doesn't understand why Snapchat is so popular is clearly following the wrong people. So to help you find the right people to follow for Berlin Fashion Week insights, I made a list of my favourite German fashion bloggers, that I am pretty sure will be at MBFW in Berlin this week:


What's Up? #5

what's up? #5 fashion beauty roundup

On Friday I printed my Master's thesis before heading to the office for the last hours of my internship. In fact there is no better feeling for a student than finishing their last paper ever so I probably should have felt fabulous. However I felt the same like during the last few weeks namely stressed and a bit anxious about what the future will bring. When I said goodbye to my boss he saw me off with the words: "So you've finished your internship, you're done with university, you're going to Berlin and later this summer to the US, and you'll be getting married, too. That's awesome!". And damn he was right! My future does look pretty awesome! I have achieved everything I ever wanted to achieve by this age and there is no reason why I should be so afraid of not getting a job because billions of people before me managed to get one. So with this feeling of simply enjoying the now I'm determined to have the time of my life this summer. And there couldn't be a better start to it than Berlin Fashion Week! But before I get completely overwhelmed by my anticipation, let's have a look at what fashion, beauty and blogging news from this week are worth sharing with you:


The Real Reason Why You're Never Invited To Blogger Events

how to get invited to blogger events

Let's face it, blogger events are like the 'Sweet 16' parties of American cheerleaders: Everybody wants to go there but only very few get the chance to be invited. Who actually gets an invitation to these birthday parties? First of all friends of the host, sometimes also friends of the guests, and finally the coolest kids of the school. Speaking in terms of bloggers you will thus mainly be invited to blogger events if you already have relations to the brand, if you know other bloggers who get an invitation, or if your blog is so good they can't ignore you. So what are you doing wrong that keeps you from becoming a blogger event guest list VIP?


What's Up? #4

As I'm writing this I'm a bit in a hurry as I spent too much time posting stories on Snapchat this afternoon. Yes, I'm giving the app another try. I'm still not super comfortable in front of the camera, and I will surely only use Snapchat when I actually have something to tell! So if you speak Luxembourgish or simply want to hear someone talk a language you've never heard then you can either scan the snapcode in my sidebar or find me under 'clothesncamera'. Anyway this week's 'What's Up?' post can easily be summed up with Disney and beauty. Not the worst two topics, right?


Tried and Tested: Manhattan Eyeshadow Pens

Is applying makeup something you enjoy or rather one of many things you feel you have to do? I know there are girls who love to experiment with cosmetics and to whom applying makeup feels like a calming ritual. I'm a bit different. To me this whole makeup process can be pretty annoying at times. Therefor I like products that make a huge impact in no time, like my go to products foundation and mascara. I'm often too lazy for things like lipstick, eyeshadow or highlighter. But what if I told you that I found a product that makes applying eyeshadow as easy as painting in a picture?


What's Up? #3

It is official, I'll be going to Berlin Fashion Week at the end of this month! I really can't wait to see how it will be like and if it's worth the hype. Until then I have some busy two weeks in front of me, in which I will have to finalize some projects for my internship and check my Master's thesis for the last time before sending it in. So far July will be a really calm month and I'm not yet sure if I will enjoy it or miss the busy times. This week for example I attended 3 events, had 3 dance classes and yesterday I had a first performance with my dance group. Blogging-wise the week was filled with awesome beauty discoveries, which I'm now sharing along with other fashion and blogging highlights of the week:


Outfit: Something Old, Something New,...

Okay stop. I know the title will make you think that we're talking about my wedding today, but that's not the case. However I find the wedding saying "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" really appropriate for this outfit. Almost everything I'm wearing is from and old collection, however the bracelet is rather new, the bag doesn't belong to me but I borrowed it from Imena for the photos, and obviously there's some blue in my outfit as well. I promise I didn't do that on purpose...


How To Never Be Over- Or Underdressed Again

In my last 'What's Up?' roundup I said a few words about the Cressance fashion show that took place in Luxembourg city last week. However I didn't yet tell you the story about how I arrived there and felt terribly underdressed...


What's Up? #2

Lately I've been feeling like the weeks are flying by super quickly and I don't think this will change in June as I have appointments and events about every other day. There are some really exciting collaborations coming my way plus I'm currently making plans to attend the Berlin Fashion Week at the end of this month. I'm so excited and I just can't hide it...! But first let's have a look at what has been going on fashion and blogging wise last week:


Project Wedding: Pinspiration

Since my post about the boho chic wedding dress collection by Lora Folk for Monoprix, I haven't given you any updates on my big day. I admit that the whole planning process (which hasn't even really started yet) has already become quite complicated. While some people made statements like 'Will you be getting married soon? I know people who've been engaged for ages which is just ridiculous!', other people told me that I should have a job and a house before getting married. It seems like as soon as you're engaged, everybody has an opinion on how your wedding should look like. Luckily over the last few days I learnt to blend the noise out and concentrate on how my fiancé and I want our special day to be like. How good that I chose two bridesmaids who encourage me in all my choices and wishes.
