After 6 years back on track…

Hello again,

it has been a long time since my last blogpost and my last encounter with the website. As the Corona pandemic slowed everything down a bit I remembered the blog and actually have  a lot of ideas about new topics and posts.

A lot of interesting stuff happened in the meantime – finished studies, new beginnings, a sabbatical with lot of travels, experiences and anecdotes to be shared. I will change and add new stuff soon.

Take care and stay healthy!

I already had two other fashion posts about the Primark obsession and about shrinking jeans sizes, but now I want to write about another topic which comes to my mind again and again, I was inspired to do so when I was having a walk through a shopping street…. About whether there is a way to dress in a sustainable way….

After a long blogging break I found my way back to the internet again ;D and I would like to write about a delicious baking experiment which I made recently: I made Stracciatella muffins flavored with Spanish Liqueur 43. I can really recommend it, all you need for it is a recipe for Vanilla or Stracciatella muffins (if you do not have one, feel free to ask me 😉 )

One of the projects which I chose for this year: changing my hair cosmetic equipment into a new one which does not contain silicon and does not or contains a lower amount of tensides, thus I chose natural products.

So I will dedicate this and also the next blog posts to hair and my experiences which I made so far.

But of course I needed to get a start with a certain brand which was a difficult choise as you have a wide variety of brands.
