Sydney Adventures

Hey everyone,
The last time I blogged about Australia, I was in Adelaide for a couple of days. From there on I've been on the go. I went to Sydney for a couple of days and then met up with my friends and drove up the east coast. After that I had one more day in Melbourne before I had my flight back home. 

The long lost Colourpop Haul

You might be confused by the title of this blog post.
Basically what happened: I ordered some stuff from Colourpop right after my first Colourpop Haul and it never made it's way onto this blog. My order arrived just before I left for Adelaide and I never had time to take photos of everything I got. I'd like to do that now. Over two months later.

August Favorites

It has been a long time since I shared my monthly favorites with you. The last 6 months in Australia went by in a blur and now I'm sitting here on my couch in Germany, thinking about my blog for the first time in a month. I have quite a few favorites to share with you. I have discovered so many amazing things in the last months, that I haven't shared with you yet.

Quick chat: I'm back & New beginnings

Hello, hello, hello.
I know, I kind of disappeared. Sorry about that.

Last time we spoke I was in Adelaide, about to go to Sydney.
Since then, my life has been both hectic and relaxing at the same time.

Adelaide & Kangaroo Island

True to all of my travel based blogs that I have been uploading recently, here is another one. I left my host family in Melbourne a month earlier than planned to see a bit of Australia before going back home.

Daytrip: Relaxing at the Mornington Peninsula Hot Springs

Today, I have to catch my flight to Adelaide where I will stay for 3 days. All of the packing and organising and the thought of being on my own stresses me out big time. So looking back at this day keeps me somewhat sane. Sometimes you just need to sit back and relax for a little while.
That is exactly what I did. Me and a friend spend a day at the Peninsula Hot Springs in Victoria to relax and treat ourselves.

Daytrip: Wilsons Promontory, Victoria

Long time no see.
Recently, I have been in a rut. I tried to spend less money to save some for my next and last big trip here in Australia. I can't believe that I'll be home in a month and a half.

Roadtrip: Tasmania Part 2

Recently, me and a friend flew over to Tasmania and rented a car for a week.
Are you all catched up? Here is part 1 of my Tasmania adventure.
Okay, so this is where we left off.

Roadtrip: Tasmania Part 1

As I already announced in my Great Ocean Road blog post (here), I went to Tasmania for a week with a friend of mine. Tasmania was one of my must-do's here in Australia and I am so happy that I got to go there. I will be writing 2 parts of what we got up to in Tasmania. Have fun with Part 1.

Colourpop Haul

I am so excited to be writing this blog post for you.

I have been dreaming about ordering on Colourpop for ages and have been waiting just as long for them to ship to europe. Turns out, I would have to go to Australia to try some of their products.

Roadtrip: Great Ocean Road & Grampians

Hello everybody!

Recently, I got the chance to drive down the Great Ocean Road with 3 other girls.
Thanks to Labour Day, we had a long weekend to do whatever we pleased and found each other through Facebook, bonding over us having the same plans for the 4 days.

Collective Skin Care Haul

There are some things I just can not live without for even 6 months.
A good skin care routine for example. In the last 3 weeks of me being in Melbourne, I collected a few things for my skin care that I couldn't take with me.
I went to Lush, Priceline and Mecca Cosmetica to put together a good routine to help prevent my skin from breaking out badly.

Rainbow Rowell: Landline

“How could she ever doubt that he loved her? When loving her was what he did better than all the things he did beautifully.” 
I think it is safe to say that Rainbow Rowell is my favourite author. I loved Eleanor & Park (blog post here), which is my absolute favourite book and now that I read Landline I want to buy every book she wrote. 

Sephora Haul

I was incredibly excited when I first stepped foot into the Sephora in Melbourne.
We don't have a Sephora in Germany and I didn't want to drive to France just to go in one.

Melbourne Week 3: Royal Botanic Gardens & St Kilda Festival

Welcome to week 3 of my Melbourne series.
I know, I know. I've fallen behind with updating you on what I did. It is the end of week 4 and I deliver a blog post about week 3. Shame on me!

Melbourne Week 2: Birthdays and Camp visits

Hello everyone,
I just started my 3rd week in Australia. If you want to know what I got up to in week 1 click here.
I hope to make a series of these diary entries, because looking back at it I might be thankful that I wrote down everything I did.

Melbourne Week 1: Settling in, Australia Day & Healesville Sanctuary

Hello everyone,
As I've mentioned really briefly in my last blog post, I am now in Australia.

I will be living with a family for the next 6 months and do what aupairs normally do.
I do hope to continue blogging and I think it would be really nice to write up a weekly update of what I got up to. 

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream

Hello from Down Under! 
I am finally in Australia and have settled in my new home for the next 6 months.

Essence Silky Touch Blushes

If there is one thing in the makeup area that I am never too experimental with, it is blush. I own about 5 different blushes. That's it!

Ofra Liquid Lipsticks

The Liquid Lipstick obsession is real!

I know, I dedicated a whole blog post to the Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Miami Fever and you probably ask yourself why I want to write another blog post.

Breakfast Oatmeal recipe

Hello you lovely people,
I finally got my Tablet PC back, so I can start blogging again! I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to blog a lot this month. I hope this will change now. My laptop is still in my brother in law's hands to get tidied up and repaired, but as long as I have my Tablet, I think I'm good to go.

Travel Bucketlist


Hello everyone!
I'm so sorry, I couldn't post on Wednesday and Sunday like I usually would. I don't have my laptop as it's getting repaired at the moment and all of my photos are currently saved on a memory card. But I thought, I could share something else with you today.
