Prussian Sights

Hello Sweets,

On the 15th of January, we decided to do some sight seeing with our family. The South of Germany has many greats sights to offer and I am working really hard on getting to know my new 'home town' a bit better.

Here you can see 'Burg Hohenzollern'. It was build in the 19th Century for King Friedrich Wilhelm the 4th from Prussia. The castle lies on a mountain which is 855 meters high. You have a wonderful view over the mountains. It feels like you are in a fairy tale.

If you ever come to the South of Germany, I can totally recommend paying a visit to the Castle. The entrance is 5 euros for walking around the castle, if you want to enter and join a tour through the castle (which I totally recommend), the price lies at 10 euros.

I do want to warn you that even if you go in summer, the castle is extremely cold inside. Take a sweater with you and wear closed shoes.

Castle kisses,

Little Red Riding Hoodie

Hi sweets,

Who doesn't like fairytales? Some of my all time favorites is Little Red Riding Hood.

Some of my favorite actresses is Amanda Seyfried. She has a face I could look at for hours. Lovely lady. She has something extraterrestrial. When I heard about the movie Red Riding Hood, I immediately ordered it.

Here is a make up look inspired by Amanda's look in the movie and also by Lisa Eldridge. I think I look a bit between a mix of Red Riding Hood, 'Those we do not speak of' and a boxer... I'm not wearing a cape, but my ever so soft bathing robe, which happens to have the perfect color. 

What I'm wearing;
  • MAC studio fix in NW20
  • MAC Raizin blush as eyeshadow and blush
  • MAC Dubonnet as a lip stain
  • Urban Decay Dark Horse as an eye liner
  • Chanel Inimitable Intense mascara
  • MAC Black Track as a tight line (upper water line)
  • Astor Eyebrow pencil in Gold Brown

Hope you like it!

Bottoms Up!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Here's my latest liquid addiction; David Rio's Power Chai (tea).

I have my neighbor to thank for my latest drinking habits. She introduced me to the 'Chai Latte' about a year ago. It didn't take long for me to buy my own 'little' (400gram) container which was empty in no time.

Since I like it so much, I bought the 1,4 kilo package, which is now proudly standing in the kitchen. I bought it at Here is the American link:

How I fix my drink;
  • 3 tea spoons of powder
  • Hot water
  • Shot of milk (can be cold or hot)

It can be made with only milk, but I prefer the lighter version. It can also be enjoyed cold. Whatever is to your liking.
