Hey guys,

there are a lot of blog posts concerning makeup and stuff but don't forget your hair! I like having voluminous, shiny hair but after blow-drying my hair with my circular brush from a drugstore my volume gets lost as soon as possible. =(
After checking out different brushes at I decided to order the SLEEP-IN ROLLERS brush. It's a big circular brush with a diameter of around 10 cm and it was delivered in a nice pink bag.
Because of its big diameter I had first to get used to rolling up my hair for blow-drying. I really like the large area on which my strands of hair can lie so that a fast drying of the hair is warranted. The distance between the single bristles is so big that you don't get any tangling hair.
My hair has so much more volume after using the brush.
For heat protection I use the L'Oréal heat protection spary which gives the hair extra volume up to three days, like the packaging says. Concerning the volume effect of the spray I can't give any review, because I wash my hair every other day. Concerning the heat protection - I like the spray really much and I'll buy it again.
To fix the volume I use a volume hairspray from got2b which I really recommend.

You can see both products in the following picture:

How do you get volumonous hair?

Hey guys,

today I want to write a little bit about my absolutely favourite perfume Prada Candy.
I got a tester last year before christmas at Douglas and I directy fell in love with the scent.
Since then I ran everytime when I was in the city to the tester, smelling this incredible fragrance.
Finally, at my birthday this year, my best boy offered me the perfume and my life was safed! :-))
It is a combination box with the 50 ml bottle of perfume and a body lotion what is packaged in a pink box like you see in the following picture:
It's a perfect box that represents the sweet, oriental flavour of the perfume. You open the box by lifting the top and tadaaa -  here it is - the fragrance and the body lotion.
 I still cannot believe that I'm really the owner of this stuff, but yes, I am and I appreciate it so so much! Thank you JP for this amazing gift!

The official description describes the smell as caramel. The first time smelling it, I thought at cotton candy from the fun park. Like this is sugar... yes I can certify the caramel smell.
The scent lasts nearly half a day until I have to refresh it. Honestly, I expected it to lasts a little longer because of the high price.
The body lotion is creamy and I like having it on my skin, smelling like I was the cotton candy myself. :-)

In general, I love the product and aside from the fact that you have to refresh the smell once per day, you get with the fragrance an amazing product. It's a fragrance you can use on special occasions like christmas, birthdays, holidays in general... The last time I used it for the wedding day of friends and the smell makes you and your outfit completely individual.

So, for the case you'll buy it... Have fun! =)

Do you know the scent? How do you like it? Do you recommend other fragrances?

My Amsterdam Haul

Hey guys,

as I mentioned in my last post, I like to show you what I bought during my holidays in Amsterdam.


Perhaps some of you can imagine what's the first thing I bought.... It's a souvenir cup from Starbucks. I really love Starbucks. There's nothing like a coffee of it and everytime I vistit a city I HAVE TO GO THERE and buy a cup with the towns name on it. I like them so much because every cup shows the significant attractions of the city like in this case the high, small houses, the sewers and of course the bikes.

As second souvenir of the town I bought a magnet. I have several magnet boards at home and I always have too little magnets to hold all my stuff. I'm always happy getting a new one. I like organizing special notes, postcards or photos like a collage on the boards so, like the Starbucks cups, during every holiday I buy a magnet as souvenir for my boards.
This time it's a cow on a bike with tulips in the bicycle basket. Like I told you, there are so many bicycle riders in the town what's very caracteristic for Amsterdam, just as the flowers. The Netherlands in general are known for having so beautiful tulips ( Did I mention that there is a flower market built up on a sewer?) and whereever you go, you see so many cows. They rest directly on the meadows nex to to the streets, ignoring the traffic around them. In Germany you won't find that...
The sunglasses and the bikini are just for fun I think. :-)

Living accesoires:

My next stop was in the Yankee Candle Shop. I think Yankee Candle is not so well-known as the candles from Bath and Body Works, but the brand is quite international. They had so good-smelling candles, especially with autumn-smells that I couldn't decide which one to buy. The decision has fallen as I recognized the special offer of getting four Samplers for 10 €. I took Salted Caramel, Vanilla Chai, Red Velvet and Strawberry Buttercream. My absolutely favourite is the Salted Caramel (Oh, by the way, today I've ordered a Salted Caramel Mocha at Starbucks and it was so tasty.... Oh my gosh.... :-D), it's perfect for cold days when you prefer relaxing at home with a hot tea or a hot chocolat under a blanket... fantastic... =)


For food specialities I bought - guess - cheese -  yes ;) There are a lot of stores where you can taste the different kinds of cheese. They have natural ones, cheese with herbs, cheese with cumin, green pesto, red pesto, cheese from goats... everything you want. I decided to pick a natural one which is really tasty.

Makeup and jewelry:

Not to forget the makeup... I bought my first MAC lipstick ever in the colour Candy-Yum-Yum.
Oh my gosh, I love this colour so much. At first I was unsure if the pink is not to intensiv for me but after looking in the mirror I was quite sure that I NEED this colour in my lipstick collection! Because it's the most expensive lipstick I've ever own in my life, I really appreciate it. I like the creamy formula very much and its really long lasting - it's definitely worth the money! =)

The ring I bought is from Brandy Melville. I heard a lot of this brand from YouTubers like @beautybaby44 or +missglamorazzi and was really happy to find a store in Amsterdam. The clothes they have are amazing. At last I decided to buy this ring which is golden and has a small white stone in it. For me it fits perfect on my ring finger. It's not a every-day ring, I prefer to wear it with glamorous clothes what, in my opinion, makes the ring more special. =)


Last but not least I bought... what every women buy... clothes, yes ! =)
I found two T-Shirts at Vero Moda. They are both from ONLY and they are casual, comfy shirts for every day. You can wear them with jeans, pants or a skirt. I like the prints on it that give the shirts its casual character. OK, I could have buy them in the german Vero Moda but I saw the shirts, liked them and ... bought them -  why wait? =)

So, that is my Amsterdam Haul! I hope you enjoyed it!  What do you buy as souvenirs when you are on holidays?
