FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA – HONEST REVIEW

If you are into make up and if you don’t live somewhere with no internet connection, you probably already know that Rihanna launched her own make up line – Fenty Beauty By Rihanna – and that it is available in the Sephora stores. I was really happy to know that it is also available in the Luxembourgish stores, because very often, my little country has to wait long before bigger European countries to get new stuff in stores.

BEAUTY PRODUCTS I WOULD REBUY

Mondays have a bad reputation, I bet half of the people who are reading this, hate Mondays. The weekend is over, work starts again and many people tend to blame Mondays for their bad mood. But I like to see it differently. Mondays can be great too. Every week you have the chance of a new beginning, new inspiration and ideas. I was thinking about my future blog posts and for today I planned to dig through my bathroom garbage, collect all the empty flasks and jars and write an article about beauty products I always run out of and rebuy all the time. I selected five products that I really like and would recommend.

I WISH MY 16 YEAR OLD SELF KNEW THIS STUFF

In the year 2000 I was 16 years old and life sucked. Because I failed maths, I had to repeat a year with a bunch of students I only knew by sight and it was extremely hard for me to get to know new people and habits. I cried for three month until Christmas until I got used to the new situation. Who knew that I would meet my dearest friends in that class and that 17 years after this, my whole circle of friends, would be based on those new friendships. It turns out that I was wrong about a lot of stuff and that things happened differently as I imagined. I made a list of things I would tell my 16-year-old self if I could.

DETOX WEEK & HOW I FEEL ABOUT IT

Last Thursday I started my 14 days of detox. I wanted to do it because my husband went on a bike tour through Denmark, still weird to call him “my husband” even after two years of marriage, I never really got used to it, and I assumed he would drop some weight. So I wanted to drop weight too and also because my tummy is way too fat and I don’t like it.

The detox basically consists in:

HOW I GREW MY INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS

When I first installed Instagram on my phone the app was quite different form what it has become. I think it was 6 years ago and at that time everybody was changing the signature square picture by applying filters called Juno, Reyes, Valencia and Willow. I liked that feature because I thought it mae my photos look professional.

WHERE TO FIND THE BEST CANARD LAQUE

Last week on thursday I attended a blogger event at Le Zai organized by the lovely Elodie Schmitt who works for the Zheng restaurants (Le Zai & Ginko Sushi) in Strassen. It was a good distraction from last week which was chaotic and stressful because of personal issues. I had the chance to meet blogger colleagues I knew virtually but not in real life and I mus say that they were easy going, terre à terre, not like some other bloggers I know.

Testing Spray Tan in Luxembourg

I’ve always wanted to test spray tanning since years and I never tried it because it was too expensive or because I didn’t find a good studio near to the area where I lived. Spray tan are words I also googled a lot or watched videos on YouTube to see how it works but somehow the reviews were always saying things like the tan is not even or the product has a funny smell.

The Night I Became An Adult

According to the title of my blog post you may think that I’m about to tell you what happened the night I had sex for the first time, but I won’t. That night wasn’t the night I became an adult. I was probably older than the average but still not an adult. I am about to write down what happend and how I felt when my father suddenly died overnight.

Cocottes Glacis – a Place to Be

Cocottes Glacis – the place to be… I know, I know, I’m a poet! Joke aside, I enjoyed the blogger lunch at Cocottes Glacis where I was invited to test new products from their range. I didn’t expect that I would like the food so much. I have to admit that I hadn’t eaten at Cocottes before and I thought that it would be another hipster, over priced, place to eat, forgotten in a few months. But I found out that it actually is a place where a lot of different people take a seat to have their lunch, that the food doesn’t only look pretty but it’s also very tasty and that the price is justified for fresh, organic and local products.

3 sorts of oven baked samosas

STEP BY STEP RECIPE: SAMOSAS

Since my Instagram post about the samosas I did last week generated many likes, I decided to do a step by step recipe about it. If you know the technique to fold samosas, it’s not very tricky to do them. I made some step by step photos on how to fold them and you can additionally find videos on Youtube about the fold technique.
