3 wonderful oils for your skin

When it comes to skin care I have become very conscious  of what I use. I know that in some of the cheaper products I use for make up (Sorry, can’t afford those wondercream, 100€ make up foundations) there aren’t only the best, chemical free ingredients, so when in the evening it comes down to treating the skin right, I…

The BS in “Fashion Men hate on Women”

While I think it is great that there are so many women out there who try to convey their knowledge and feelings for style and fashion to others, I have a huge problem with one certain category. Every now and then a video or post blobs up that seems to warn other women of the horrid fashion trends, which men…

3 ways to deal with overwhelm

A week has gone by and I haven’t managed to put one single blog post online. Why? The last days have been amazingly overwhelming. While I am well aware that the stress is mostly internal, it doesn’t mean that it makes it any less real to me. Dealing with it has been an important topic lately. I have watch videos,…

The beauty of household chores

When coming home from a long day of studies or work the pretty last thing one often wants to do is a) ironing b) folding the laundry or c) scrubbing the floors. Yet, being kind of busy lately, that is mostly what awaits me (and you probably too). To be honest, I came to love it. Seriously. No one can…

Nowadays taking advantage of fellow people is as easy as one could imagine. In a world that is full of realism and facts, many tend to search for one or the other distraction, for something, that takes responsibility off their shoulders for a moment and lets them relax. Some take refugee in faith, others in esotericism. While a bit of…

3 pre-spring trends

It is not really spring yet (though many of us wish it would come soon) and in many areas it isn’t really winter either. While layer-wise you are stuck between the question of “Will I freeze my butt off” and “Will I die of a heat stroke”, there are also all the new trends for spring/summer 2018 popping up. Nope,…

Self – Discipline and Self – Care

When one has a lot on his mind, university- or jobwise, it can be easy to forget one’s most important asset – oneself. At the moment I am working hard to finish my studies in the next 3 months. I get through my days, trying to balance studies, organizational things, work, fitness, health and household. That’s not as easy as…

3 ideas to get you through January

I get it. January can be great. It’s the month of new beginnings, of resolutions taking shape and being converted into reality. For me, however, it’s also the month when I most likely get my little winter depression. While I normally consider myself to be a quite optimistic person, the third or fourth day in line, with the sun not…

Why are you so afraid of nipples?

I think there hardly is a body part that is just as much feared as the nipple. The female nipple, anyways. Whether it’s a nipple slip, whether you see it hardened under a girls shirt, whether a part of it is visible through a thin fabric, you can be sure to attract a lot of (unwanted) attention. Sometimes you might…

Things to refrain from 3 – False Friends Instagramposts 

I love Instagram. In my opinion, it is a great way to stay in contact with friends. While Facebook is flooded with advertisement at the moment, and I mostly read company’s ideas instead of seeing the posts of my friends, I more often than not prefer scrolling through Instagram than staying on Facebook. That both are activities on which you…
