My struggles..

Today’s post is all about my struggles with all things beauty. Fashion, makeup, hair .. and all of that stuff. Like I already mentioned I am very interested in all of the things mentioned above. I like to check out my instagram feed, pinterest or watch youtube videos just to see how amazing people look and what you actually can do, especially with makeup. It’s just amazing and I mean first impressions always are about looks. So as I am not that experienced in all of that stuff and I actually can’t afford most of the “good stuff” I wanted to just tell you how I feel about makeup and fashion and hope you’ll enjoy reading this post and maybe can relate here and there.

makeup. 

Like most girls I am interested in that topic and I am doing my makeup every morning before I go to school or work. Even though some may not even call it that because I basically just put on some powder and mascara, if I feel like it I’ll also put on some concealer, but yea most of the time I’m not. I do love watching other people do their makeup though. And every single time wish I could do it like that as well. I know they probably had a hard time at the beginning as well, but why do they have to look so damn perfect when they’re done?! I sometimes try to recreate their looks but always think it’s just not working for me. I feel like you can see all the makeup I put on and think that I look strange with lipstick on. It’s probably all in my head and I just have to try it out a little bit more and actually go out with having more makeup on, but I guess I’m not confident enough to actually do that. I feel like this isn’t me and in the end go with what I’m used to even though I would like to able to put on some eyeliner and lipstick.

hair

Going from makeup to my hair. I have to say that in general I do love my hair, but there’s always the thing that you want what you don’t have. I have straight here and even if I do curl it the curls are gone within two or three hours.. I haven’t found the right way for them to just stay yet. Another thing I’m always having trouble with is that at the moment I want my hair to be long again. I had pretty long hair last year but then I decided to just cut in off at the beginning of this year and now I want my long hair back, because I feel that there’s more that I can do with it instead of it just boringly framing my face. The struggles..

fashion

Fashion wise I also do have some struggles regarding style and especially affording the things I like. I don’t have a special style I just go with what I like which on some days is more on the casual side and on other days chic. I really like this classy look and wearing blouses but yea I kind of go with what I think feels right and what I’m comfortable in. So that’s not really the problem, the problem is finding the things that fit and aren’t too expensive. I am more of a person that thinks about what she buys. I’m not just going into a store, browse and come out with a bag full of new clothes. With me it’s more like I see something I like or have a thought about what I want if I have to save money for it I will and then I’ll just buy that one piece instead of going to a cheap store to buy 5 shirts and give up the thing I actually wanted to buy. Of course I do sometimes go shopping and just buy what I want not caring about the price, because I think you sometimes just have to do that to lift your mood and get something new. So the problem I have with fashion is that I don’t know how to connect the things I like and being able to afford them. I wish I could just buy what I want, but it’s not possible so I have to set priorities and as I am kind of into the more expensive stuff I have to wait till I buy something and wait for it. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and will let me know if you’d like me to write a post about one of the topics above more specifically or if you’d like to see pictures of my hair then and now or my makeup or style. Also let me know if you are interested in a special post of any kind and I’ll do my research and see if I can put something together on the topic you’d like to know more about! Also if you do have a beauty blog or instagram please leave the link or name in the comments so I can check it out and follow you! See you next time x.

Why I decided to go vegan

I’ve been vegan for just three weeks now, but I still wanted to share how and why I decided to make that step.

I’ve been interested in the topic for a while just thinking it was kind of interesting. I can’t remember exactly how I even found out about veganism, but after I heard some things about it I wanted to inform myself so I bought a book and found the topic getting more interesting the more I read.

I didn’t go vegan right away though. I ate “normal” for a while after that and became a vegetarian in 2014. I actually didn’t plan on eating vegan for a while, because like most people, I was like “hell, you won’t be able to eat anything at all.” Then YouTube suggested me some videos from vegans and I just watched them and informed myself. Watched some documentaries and read some articles.

And then all of a sudden I thought “hey let’s just try it out” because I have to admit I was a little bit disgusted with what I saw and read.

Still I am not judging anyone who still eats animal products, because I think it’s a choice you have to make for yourself and you have to respect what people want to do or in this case want to eat. Because it really is a big change you have to make and can be kind of hard. That’s why I think it is important to inform yourself first and decide after that if you want to go vegan.

Here are some videos I watched and the website of a vegan cook, who’s books I love:

101 – Reasons to Go Vegan

Tips for Vegan Beginners – there are a lot more links in the info box of this video

Vegan Cook – Attila Hildmann – loooooove his books!

If you would welcome a post about Tips for Vegan Beginners from me, let me know. x

Hey there!

Seeing this is my first post I wanted to introduce myself and just let you get to know me a little bit.

My name is Natascha and I am 21 years old. I decided to create this blog, because I wanted to share my story and because I used to love writing when I was younger and just stopped at some point in my life.

Now I am – like most girls – interested in fashion, makeup and beauty, which is why this probably will be one of the topics I am going to talk about on this blog. As well as how I struggle with finding the right things for me especially with a low budget and all of that.

I also became Vegan a few weeks ago, after being a vegetarian for over a year. Of course I also want to share that story, why I decided to go vegan, how I find new ideas for meals and if I’ll actually go through with it or turn back to vegetarian.

But basically I will “go with the flow and see what comes to my mind and what I want to share and write about – lot of and’s in that sentence.

Lastly I wanted to mention that English is not my mother tongue, so please excuse the errors I am going to make here and there. I choose to write in English because I feel like I can express myself better and I just love the language way better than my own.

That being said I’ll start working on my first real post and am excited to start the journey of having my own blog.
