Sultry Thursday: Comfort Zone

After what feels like a hundred years, last week end I decided to grab my brushes and put on some make up again!


The occasion is the "Sultry Thursday" project initiated by Godfrina from Kalter Kaffee. I currently don't really have a lot motivation (or inspiration) to do make up, so I welcomed the idea of having a set of "rules" to stick to. Gofrina's project currently doesn't have a set of colors as prerequisite, instead she chose a palette - in my eyes a great idea to collect ideas what to do with the colors of such a palette!

At first I was hesitant to participate because I don't even own Wet'n'Wild's Comfort Zone palette. It looks really pretty though, and when I came to think about it I noticed that I have quite similar colors somewhere in my make up collection. So in the end, I decided to give it a try, and this is what I came up with!

Review: "Magic Hair Curlers"

Hello guys and welcome to the very first blogpost written from my new computer, wohoo! It's great to finally, after so many years, have a proper system to work with, and I especially enjoy my new keyboard... even faster typing, perhaps this means I can write new blogposts faster too and thus post more frequently, haha! Well, we'll see :)

Today I want to tell you about my experiences with hair curlers, also called curl formers... well, I don't really think those things have a real, distinct name (yet), so I'll just call them magic hair curlers for the time being :D
These weird, colorful things seem to be a rather new thing, last summer I read a review about them and seemed very intrigued so I looked around on ebay and soon found some to try it all out...
Since even though I cut my hair it is still pretty long, I will try to give some advice to people with long hair who want to try this kind of product in the course of my review!

I want to apologize in advance for the bad photo quality. Time and daylight are not something I am currently blessed with in abundance, so I just tried to take some snapshots here and there, to illustrate this review at least a little bit!

Long story short: Yes, they do work and make nice curls! For the long story...

Picture My Day #16 - Yeah Science, Bitch!

Today was "Picture my Day" day once again (I missed #15 D: But here are the posts of previous PmdDs that I participated in: 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7 ). This time organized by Sumi, she chose this particular date because it would be her first day working at a new company - and coincidentally, it was the same for me!

Some of you might know that I'm starting to work on my Master's thesis now, but since I want to keep a "low profile" about these things in the future for various reasons, I probably won't write about my work in the future. In case you're curious what I'm doing, feel free to message me on my facebook fan page though.

Anyhow, so for those of you who never heard of PmdD - on this day, participants take photos of whatever happens that day, be it super exciting fun stuff or just their regular work day routine. For me, it was more or less both. On one hand, starting at a new work place is of course always exciting, but since I did some pretty routine work on my first day I don't really have very exciting stuff for you to show. But I guess starting with today, this is what most of my workdays will probably look like. If you're curious what it's like - read on! I took the photos with my cell phone, so I apologize in advance for the quality ^^"

"Goooood morning! You awake yet?"
