August Favorites

Hi lovelies!

First of all, let me excuse myself for my little absence from blogger, of course I haven't given up and everything, but school started again for me and so I wanted to get settled and adapt to my routine before starting to blog again. I'm a senior now and so school is really important to me, I hope you understand!

Anyway, on to the main topic of this (not so) little post, my favorites for the month of August...

NOTD: Catrice Jetsetter (Cruise Couture LE)

We're currently experiencing a super duper hot summer over here in Germany, so I've really been cracking out the brightest nail polishes I own recently, going from bright orange to vibrant turquoise until I have landed in the most girly color family of all: pinks!

Renaming my blog

Hi everyone!

This post is a little off topic from what I usually do and I really hope you don't mind that. If you read this, you obviously know the (rather long) name of my beauty/fashion/food ramble blog which is the reason that I am writing these words:

I am not happy with my blog name.

I once made it up on a whim, wanting a blog that would represent my 'life situation' as I had set up a big list of things to achieve, but now I find it too long and I am surely not going to be 17 forever (I'm not Edward Cullen after all, eh?).

I'm currently compiling a list of possible names, but I also wanted to hear your opinions and maybe your ideas for a new blog name? Once I've figured out the one I like best, I will rename my blog and also finally start to create a proper layout.

Thanks for your help!

Empties #3

Blogger has decided to do its own thing today I guess! Sorry about that :)
I am currently using products up like nobody's business. Seriously, considering the time span since my last Empties post (link here) and the amount of producs I have accumulated again, you must think my whole day consists of slapping creams, scrubs and other potions on to my body ;)

Essie Good To Go

I could never be bothered with wearing a topcoat over my manicure. When I was younger, I accidentally scratched all of my exercise books with my nail polish which ended up in bright red or blue marks all over the place -not pretty! I then tried a couple of drugstore topcoats, but none of them was really satisfying.

Enter Essie Good To Go.

My Week On Instagram #6

I'm still on my summer vacation (even if not for long anymore) and so there's not too many exciting things that happen since I spend most of time relaxing, reading and watching the Olympics on TV. But here are the bits I shared with you this week:

Admiring the most beautiful sunset // Reading a CSI book in bed // Making my own burger at a BBQ with the family

I curled my hair and it turned out great! // Loving the White Fig & Amber scent from Primark // Bought Essie Good To Go

Wearing Daisy by Marc Jacobs // Enjoying some fruit while watching TV // Laying on a meadow by the pool

My Makeup (and Hair): Minimal Summer Beauty

I've been doing lots of summer-related posts recently, mainly due to the reason that we had quite a bit of sun in Germany recently which I tried to enjoy as much as possible. Since I was staying outside so much, I tried to use as few products as possible aiming my makeup to look effortless and bronzed.
