Project Summer Hair Part 2: At-home hair bleaching

I used to equate bleaching with fried hair. The first time I had my hair bleached was last year for some highlights and it was done by a professional. Despite watching countless tutorials by professionals and amateurs in Youtube and knowing that the entire process isn’t that complicated, I never have the courage to do it myself. Of course I can just buy all the … Continue reading Project Summer Hair Part 2: At-home hair bleaching

Project Summer Hair Part 1: Hair Inspiration

So… now that we have full hot-ish, sunny days for almost one week in a row, I am convinced that summer is almost officially here. Finally.

HASK Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil

Monday is for makeup or skin care related post. However, a girl is sick and bedbound and this is what she already has in her smartphone (blogging from my smartphone is awesome! Thank you, technology!) When it comes to hair, I’m one of those people prefer to keep the routine/hair care to the bare minimum. I wash my hair with a regular scalp-care shampoo (I … Continue reading HASK Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil

RL de Young Baked Highlighter 01 Moon Dust

RL de Young is the baby sister brand of Rival de Loop and are both brands from Rossmann, one of the largest drugstore chains in Germany. Up until a few weeks ago, I was not aware of the existence of these brands because I rarely shop in Rossmann (I’m a DM girl coz they carry NYX!!!). I’m currently in the market for a drugstore highlighter … Continue reading RL de Young Baked Highlighter 01 Moon Dust

Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate

Yesterday, I came across some horrendous pictures of me trying out foundations and wanted to share my thoughts on this particular high-end foundation, which in my opinion, the worst high-end … Continue reading Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate

Day Trip: Hanover

On Monday, we went to Hanover before leaving to Berlin later that evening. Hubby was there for work, I tagged along and did some quick sight-seeing during the day. Hanover (German: Hannover), the capital city of the state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen) is approximately 3 hours train ride from Heidelberg. The city is probably most well-known for hosting the annual computer and IT trade fair, … Continue reading Day Trip: Hanover

Day trip: Idar-Oberstein & Flugaustellung P. Junior, Hermeskeil

Now that it seems clear that we’re going to settle in Germany for at least the next one year, I’ve decided to add another category called Life in Germany to document or share my experience living here as a non EU-citizen. After some encounters with fellow ‘aliens’ (‘Aliens Office’ or Ausländeramt is responsible for your Residence Permit application), I thought that it would be interesting … Continue reading Day trip: Idar-Oberstein & Flugaustellung P.
