BEAUTY TALK: Invisalign Update #2

It has been 3 months since I started my Invisalign treatment for my teeth, and I have been getting a ton of emails and questions in regards to how it has been going for me. About time for another post, I would say! For today’s update, I wanted to focus on my personal first impressions. Right now, I feel like I am at a changing point as to where the aligners have become so natural to me, that I don’t even really think about it anymore. So before I get too used to them, I wanted to jot down my experience from the first few weeks and share it with you.

CRAVINGS: Beauty Newbies

Do you guys currently have any beauty products on your wishlist? Is there anything that you’ve been drooling over for ages, but just can’t get yourself to spend the money? Well, welcome to the club! There are a few items, I’d love to try and possibly add to my daily routine. However, me and my skin are so picky when it comes to products, that I always have to think twice about giving something a try. For example, I once got an amazing concealer from Asia, put it on super excitedly and got a rash within hours. None-the-less, I wanted to share some of the things that are currently on my (beauty) wishlist with you guys today – maybe you’ve tried something and can help me make up my mind?

OUTFIT: miami pink

While it has currently cooled-down a bit, it’s been nothing but Summer vibes these past 2 weeks. With daily temperatures well above 30°C, at some point you just accept the fact that you’ll be sweating the second you step outside and that you’re better off wearing your hair in curls than trying to keep it straight. Even though 38°C was pushing it, I am so glad that the sun showed up daily this July. For those hot Summer days, I try to stick to light colors and as little make-up as possible. While I skip the eyeshadow, eyeliner and all other unnecessary products on my face, I do love a bit of color on my lips. Head on over to beautystories, where I recently shared my must-have lipstick for a pop of color during Summer, to find out what color I am wearing on my lips. And here is the outfit to go with it:

BEAUTY TALK: 5 products worth re-buying

While I am not one to shy away from testing new products, I am also someone who loves to stay true to things that work (for me). As a blogger, I often get spoiled by brands and get to try my way through tons of amazing things. Some never make it on the blog (usually because I don’t like the product or it doesn’t agree with my sensitive skin), but others become true favorites and a fixed part of my daily routine. Earlier this week, I stopped into KaDeWe in Berlin to re-buy my current favorite lipgloss by Chanel, when the idea of this post came to me. Personally, I think re-buying products is the biggest compliment you can give a certain brand or product, especially if a lipgloss runs at 27€ … I tried on a few other options of the same lipgloss, but nothing beats the one that is about to run out. Which is why I am sharing my personal top 5 products totally worth re-buying with you guys today.
