I'm back! ... kind of ...




Hi everybody!
Feels so strange to type something on the blogger editor again...
I hope everybody has done well. I'm so thankful and am absolutely blown away by your support! I can't even believe that this blog still gets regular visits and new readers after all this time.
My hiatus ended up being over 3 months, I guess that's quite an era in the blogosphere.
As I have told you in my last posting, I lost interest in make up and making up sometime by the end of last year, which was partly the reason for me wanting a break. I think my product turn-over was much too fast so I couldn't even find some time to enjoy them.
Other than that I went through a very hard time emotionally because obstacles occured in my family which lead me having to shoulder responsibilities that I never had before (not the divorce kind of problems), I also needed to delay my final exams for one semester. At this time most dark clouds have gone away and I can see the day again.

Make-up-wise I went through some phases to get back to my blogger mojo in the last months, I had a month or so when I didn't even buy one thing make-up-related (which is most uncommon for me ;)) parallel to a (fruitless) period of "using up/sort of project 10 pan" - until I realized that it's just pointless for me to dictate myself to use up products I don't absolutely love while the money is already spent and the damage is already done and the nicer products are waiting in the drawers.
Well, after that I went through a serious skin care phase, Japanese and Korean skin care, that is. Succeeding it with a nice skin, I proceeded into a Korean make up phase with a new favourite: the ulzzang no-make-up-make-up. This closed the cycle and sparked my love for make up again, and I went back to be the make-up-aficionado I formerly was. I watched amazing videos and read super inspiring blogs, I played with lovely products, tried different techniques and enjoyed it so so much! Sometimes playing with make up is much more fun and relaxing if you're just doing it for yourself, without the "blogger-thought" of how a certain product would work on others etc.
Many many times I wanted to come back to rave about a recent find, share a special tip or trick, but by that time I already was wholly consumed by the preparations for the final exams again.
So last week the first, written, part of it finally ended (for me the hardest part due to the many times irrelevant contents and tricky questions) - and it went well. I still have to face the oral examinations by the begin of June, but I am quite relaxed and I trust my abilities as a physician.
But still, I have to revise a lot, so I'm just ...kinda...-back. But I'm too enthusiastic to stay away any longer, too ;)
Please await a GINORMOUS haul very soon. I have got a LOT of ... everything. Legit.
The beforementioned topics will be covered soon when time comes.
For now, it's just a not-so-quick "Hello!" and a big "Thank you!".


Take care!

  16. Ich freu mich so sehr dass du wieder bloggst, ich war häufiger hier weil deine Übersichtspost und Produktvorstellungen einfach super hilfreich und zuverlässig sind und jedes Mal habe ich ein Tränchen verdrückt, dass es keine aktuellen Beiträge gibt. Freude!

  23. Yay! I'm so happy you're back! I've often checked back during your hiatus to see if you posted anything. I've gone through phases of losing interest in blogging too. It's normal. It's a lot of work, and it takes a lot of time. Try not to feel pressured because we all understand that your blog is not your job, it's a hobby and you have more going on in your life other than makeup. I can't wait for your haul though!! I've missed your posts so much!

  31. Yay glad you're back! I missed your posts a lot! Sometimes bloggers need a bit of down time to savor reality before diving head first into reviews, swatches, and comparisons again :)

  32. I'm so glad you are back to blogging! I would check your blog everyday to see if you were back. Also, I'm also happy to hear that the gloomier days are past. I cannot wait for your post about your ginormous haul. :)

  33. Schön, dass du wieder da bist!
    Die Farbe von Rouge und Schal steht dir ganz wunderbar. Solltest du dich vielleicht öfter mal ranwagen. Sonst hast du ja doch eher eine gold-braun-Schwäche;)

  42. Yeah! You're back! So happy...
    I was always going back to your blog to re-read some of your amazing posts when I wanted to decide on a purchase. (Your blog is kind of my "beauty-encyclopedia"...)
    In the last weeks I was seeing your comments on several blogs (stalker-alert!) and was hoping that maybe you were slowly coming back. I'm really excited for your upcoming posts. It sound so interesting already!
    Wishing you all the best!

    ReplyDelete

  65. Hi


    schön, dass du wieder da bist. Habe mind. 1 Mal die Woche geschaut, ob es von dir etwas Neues gab.

    Diese Phase hat jeder einmal Im moment sind viele bzw. waren viele bekannte Blogs down, weil jeder mal eine Auszeit braucht.
    Bei mir ist es auch ruhig im Moment aber ich kaufe massenweise Make Up im Moment und bin auf der Jagd nach speziellen ,raren Dingen

    LG

  71. mach dir mal um die mündliche prüfung keine sorgen. das ist im endeffekt in den allermeisten fällen mehr eine showveranstaltung. da fällt kein mensch mehr durch des es bis dahin geschafft hat :-) alles gute! die zeit zwischen schriftlich und mündlich war für mich die schlimmste, weil einfach die luft raus ist. aber wenn der letzte schritt dann auch noch getan ist fühlt man sich so richtig befreit :-)

    1. DANKE für das Mutmachen! Ich seh' es auch so - da müsste man schon katastrophales von sich geben um durchzufallen. ich sehne es auch SO sehr herbei - vor allem weil ich einen der sehr späten termine habe während die kommilitonen jetzt alle nacheinander "Lasst mich Arzt - Ich bin durch!!!" schreien dürfen ;)

    2. mir ging das ähnlich. vor allem weil noch ein weiteres familienmitglied + mein freund mit mir examen gemacht haben und beide vor mir dran waren... zwar nur 2 bzw 1 woche aber DIESE zeit war dann echt die allerschlimmste ;-))
      ne gute freundin von mir hatte dafür erst 4 wochen nach mir d.h. sie hat noch lernen müssen, während wir anderen längst irgendwo am strand lagen. das hätte ich glaub ich nicht durchgehalten :D
      das tolle am examen im frühling ist doch, dass man dann den ganzen sommer noch vor sich hat! ich hoffe du musst dann nicht gleich anfangen zu arbeiten. ich hätte im nachhinein sehr gerne noch länger pause gemacht vor der 1. stelle

  72. Yes! One of my favourite beauty bloggers is back! I can't wait to hear about your new-found Japanese/Korean skincare regimen and the no-makeup makeup! Please do an update and a makeup tutorial!
