Seoul has to be the most exciting city for beauty junkies to visit. There’s no city (that I know of) that’s as permeated with all things beauty like Seoul. I mean, there’s a whole neighbourhood dedicated to beauty shops! You’re also getting a hint about the general beauty-crazedness when you arrive at the airport – virtually every billboard was adverting cosmetics. Every. One. It’s very easy to get overwhelmed, so here’s my Seoul K-beauty shopping for beginners!

Anders als in den letzten Jahren gibt es dieses Mal keine ausführlichen Shopvorstellungen mit unseren Empfehlungen, was sich bei der Glamour Shopping Week wirklich lohnt. Dieses Mal seht ihr hier unsere Wunsch-/ Einkaufslisten.

Das ändert sich nun aber nicht so dramatisch, dass es einen erneuten Post erfordern würde. Außerdem habe ich das Gefühl, dass das Angebot zwar immer größer wird, die einzelnen Deals jedoch schlechter, und da macht es mehr Sinn, sich auf die Rosinen im Kuchen zu konzentrieren. Und die picken wir uns im folgenden schonungslos raus!READ MORE

And here’s what I learned in the process, to help out you all who might someday have to ship their makeup stash halfway around the world, too.READ MORE
For our female entrepreneur series, we want to tackle a question that must have popped up on a female founders’ mind at one point: What makeup should I wear to pitches? What should I wear if I’ve to give a talk somewhere? Wouldn’t it be easy not to think about that at all? That’s why we have some tips for you!
What makeup can you take on a plane? I travel frequently and tend to lug a lot of my makeup around when I do (chronic over-packers represent!). Taking skincare and makeup items with you on a plane can be quite tricky, though. Here I’ll tell you what best to pack into your carry-on, and what should go into checked baggage (and what you can do if you only have a carry-on).READ MORE
I recently saw a Summer Travel Essentials blogpost that featured toe rings and stationery, and while I don’t know your life and if toe rings are an absolute essential to you, it got me thinking. What are my travel essentials, for summer or other times of the year? As I’ve just returned from a three week trip, I’ve got a few things on my mind I’d love to share with you – let’s just say I’ve learned from my mistakes!READ MORE
