Summer Favorites 2021 – Skincare and more | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND PR-SAMPLES. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER I am outing myself as atypical in the beauty space today, telling you that I am NOT ready to transition from summer to fall already. Honestly, you can spare me your “crisp mornings and golden leafs” Instagram posts, my favorite season is spring, followed closely by summer, and no amount of Pumpkin Spice anything will change my mind.     The change of seasons doesn’t care much about my personal…

Spring Favorites 2021 – Skincare and more! | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.   I used to do monthly favorites posts a few years ago, but quickly realized that my life as it is does not provide me with the opportunity to discover enough new and favorite things to fill even a 200 words post each month – and that was before the pandemic hit, so I can assure you the possibility is even lower now.     But sometimes…

My best skin care products of 2019

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Back in the days, I would do monthly favourites, sharing with you my top discoveries of each month. I quickly realized that that was not sustainable, at least not for me. With a testing period of four to six weeks, I just didn’t discover enough products to warrant a blog post. So I switched to yearly favorites, sharing with you my best skin care product discoveries of the…

Fall Favorites 2017 – Being unique

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   Are we ever as unique as we like to think? Most of us, especially those that have any kind of creative outlet online, like to think that their content is fresh and special and easily distinguable from others. We put “our own twist” on things, have a theme in our pictures and invent fancy names for even fancier blog post series. And then, one day, we take a step back and realize we are doing what everyone around…

July 2017 Favorites and Recap

Somehow it seems like everyone is on holiday right now. Is it that time of year already? The time were people are gathering at the beaches, cocktail in one hand, book in the other and care about nothing else than tan lines and evening plans?     It certainly feels like that when I am clicking away on my keyboard in an eerily quiet office or when I look at my suddenly quiet bloglovin feed. I have to admit my mind has been occupied as well. Not holiday, not yet,…

June 2017 – Favorites and Recap

I have to admit that there were times last month that I felt pretty overwhelmed. Life was very busy and hectic, and while it was all for great reasons, it was a little exhausting as well.     Soon after I uploaded my video on how to handle kids, a job and the blog (watch here if you haven´t already), I got promoted. Which is awesome and a great opportunity, but also a lot of work, given that I had to very quickly pick up a whole new topic. So…

May 2017 Favorites and Recap

It seems to become a tradition that I start my Favorites posts mentioning one thing that would have made it into my monthly recap for sure, had I known it already when filming. Same thing happened with my May 2017 Favorites and Recap : I had a day off work on the 23rd, managed to sit down to film AND edit this video, and the next day, casually browsing beauty blogs as you do, I learned that Sephora is coming to Germany.     Really, it is, with a set…

April 2017 – Favorites and Recap

Blogging has given me quite a few surprises since I started. And I am not going to tune in to the great community chorus here, or talk about the many things it taught me. Or the late nights and weird face paintings. No, I am going to share with you something that I never thought would ever happen.     I got an eMail. And it was written by a cat. Not just any cat, but a fabulous and tech savvy cat that lives pretty close to me. And that…

March Favorites 2017 – New beginnings

If you remember my last Favorites post (read here if you missed it), you know I promised change. And change there is, but if it was for better or worse, only time and you, dear readers, can tell. Or should it be “Dear Watchers”, given it is a You Tube video? Are you the watchers on the Wall, sworn to defend humankind from boring and repetitive content? And can you tell I am really looking forward to the last season of Game of Thrones airing soon?     But wait,…

February Favorites 2017 – Where do we go from here?

You may have noticed there wasn´t a Favorites post last month. Quite frankly, after doing my Favorites for 2016 (see Makeup and Skincare here in case you missed them), I felt like there wasn´t much to report. So I settled for February Favorites and a short break, mentally preparing to have a really big list of things to mention.     Turns out, that isn´t the case. I do have quite a few makeup bits, but only one skincare item (shocking, I know) and I completely forgot about the lifestyle…
