Teekanne Kaminabend

Ich bin "leidenschaftlicher" Teetrinker, vor allem, seitdem ich leider keinen Kaffee mehr vertrage.

Der Teekanne Kaminabend ist einer meiner Lieblings-Wintertees.

Am liebsten mag ich Schwarz- und Grüntees, Rooibos- und Früchtetees schmecken mir oft nicht so sehr.
Ich habe z.B. auch den Teekanne Winterabend probiert, aber der ist mir leider viel zu sauer, obwohl er sooo gut riecht.

Teekanne Kaminabend ist ein Rooibostee mit Orange-Zimt-Marzipan - Aroma.

Ich habe ihn dieses Jahr wiederholt gekauft, das bedeutet bei mir schon etwas, denn normalerweise kaufe ich selten Dinge wie Tee, Duschgel usw. zweimal. Ich habe extra darauf gewartet, dass er irgendwo im Angebot ist ;)

Manhattan * Spice up your Nails LE * 101 S

It´s a dark blueish grey, almost black.
Pretty color, applying is OK, duration isn´t very good. It started chipping on the first day.
I used one coat.

On my little finger I put a coat of China Glaze "Cowardly Lyin´"

Carrot Pig ;o)

Little Kishan has a tooth problem. 
I broke my kitchen scales and couldn´t weigh him for a while. For baking I borrowed one and found out that poor Kishan only weighs 500g instead of his usual 700g. *shock*
I also didn´t check the pigs for quite a while, so I didn´t notice that he became very skinny and bony.

I went to the vet and he removed a "tooth bridge". The two molars on the right and left side grow too long and build a bridge over the tongue.

I didn´t notice any eating problems, but maybe Kishan could eat only very slowly.
He still has some problems, maybe some pain, but I hope his teeth will get better soon.

As a treat and to make him gain weight, I give him baby carrot mush which he enjoys eating and slopping  :o)

Keiko Mecheri *Loukhoum*

One of my favorite perfumes is Keiko Mecheri´s "Loukhoum". I discovered it on "Aus Liebe zum Duft". Keiko Mecheri is a Japanese "nose" and artist who lives in Los Angeles.

Do you know the jelly-likeTurkish candy cubes with the same name, also called "Turkish Delight"? This perfume was inspired by it.

Hawthorn blossom (Weißdorn/Rotdorn), Bulgarian rose absolute, precious woods, vanilla, Comores flowers, white almond, musk

White almonds, dates, honey or rose water are some ingeredients of both the candy and the perfume.
After applying the scent the heart note comes out which is from Comores flowers, woods and vanilla. The base note is a subtle musk.

It is a true gourmand note, so if you don´t like sweet scents it is definitely the wrong one for you.
Its sweetness is soft and gentle, yet strong.
Loukhoum is a very sensual and long-lasting perfume.

There are two additions to the original version:

Loukhoum eau Poudrée: lighter and more floral (rose)
Loukhoum Parfum du Soir:  richer and intensely vanillic

Benefit *Eyecon* eye cream [review]

This cream is one of the few real cosmetics flops I bought. :o(

I like Benefit´s products, they are creative and helpful. I love their Bad Gal mascara since I have very long and black lashes anyway and Bad Gal manages to make them appear even longer. Also the purple version of BadGal is a good idea for people fair hair,skin and eye color.

I bought Eyecon along with another product because of a coupon offer: If you bought 2 Benefit products you could get a mini size Dr. Feelgood for free.

I have 2 small wrinkles under each eye and started using eye cream not so long ago ( I´m only 30 ;o)  ). Another thing is that I have and always had dark circles under my eyes.
For 30€ you expect an eye cream to be really effective if it promises to help against these two problems.

I haven´t noticed any change in the darkness of my eye circles nor in the size of the wrinkles.
Besides that the cream hurts at the outside corner of my eyes.

I will definetely not buy this again :o(

Aufgebraucht! / Used up Products in November

I like to write down and make lists of everything ;)
So I decided to put one of the lists on my blog.
So - which cosmetics did I use up in the month of November?

  • 1 Lush So White Ballistic (Last Year´s Christmas Product)
    • scent: green apple. Ballistic with a little foam. Nice, but like most Lush bath products I only use them once :) (otherwise I´ll never get through the whole asssortment)
  • 1 tube of Melvita Anis+Carnation Toothpaste
    • I like toothpaste with other taste than mint :)
  • 1 pot of Lush Ocean Salt
    • the second pot is already in use. My face skin feels soft and fresh after using it.
  • 1 bottle Lush Veganese
    • I bought a new bottle, but now I have to use my other conditioner, The Body Shops´ Banana conditioner with its wondeful smell.
  • 1 sample Eucerin Eye Cream
    • I like samples ;)
  • 1 The Body Shop Rainforest Shampoo mini size 
    • I did not use it up, I gave it to my Mom because i don´t see much effect on my hair.
