Going Does Not Mean Being Away

via giphy.com

There are many different kinds of going. Sometimes people leave for new jobs, for love, out of fear and sometimes people have to go forever and leave life. We all know that this is just how it is. And we all have dealt with people going away or we have ourselves gone somewhere.
But what we also do know is, that leaving or being left is never easy. It hurts every time, no matter who left and no matter what the reason is. 
I am not trying to compare all those reason for leaving and the feelings they leave behind. What I am trying to say is, that wherever you go, you will only be physically away. You always leave some part of you behind. Things, memories, stories. When someone goes away, we keep carrying everything that connects us to the person in ourselves. You can chose whether it is your mind or your heart, or maybe both. That is up to you and what you believe is true for yourself. In any way, the people and the memories about them always stay with you.
I just wanted to remind myself and maybe some of you that sometimes we think we lost everything but if we come to the point where we have hurt enough and thought about it enough, there are still possibilities to be connected. No matter how and no matter for what reason someone left.

Urban Decay – Beached

The Urban Decay Beach Palette launched some while ago and was almost daily in use over summer. The shades of this beautiful eyeshadow palette truly scream “summer!” and are just perfect for this season.
The shades remind me of the sea, the beach, mussels and also of fire. Why fire? Because some of the colors are almost the same as those of the Naked Heat. You know, the ones with the flames. 
To be really honest I bought it because of those two absolutely stunning blue shades. And whoever said blue eyes don’t go with blue eyeshadow lied. Seriously. If you do it right there is nothing wrong with using every color you ever like.
The quality of the shades is amazing as always. This is the main reason why I only buy Urban Decay eyeshadows and nothing else. They’re smooth, they’re opaque, they’re perfectly shining. Well, I love them.

The colors

So you already know now that Double Dip and Plunge are my favorite ones. But can we please notice how awesome Heatwave and 16th Street are? Also Salt is a pretty cool and nice color to blend and highlight. It looks like shimmering sand on a beautiful beach you wish you could spend your holidays on. Every color in this palette has its purpose for a great summer look. The reds and browns of this palette remind me of a barbecue party with friends and some nice summer jams surrounding smoke and party people.

Where to get

If you already have it, congrats honey! You’ve got the perfect eyeshadow friend for your hot Sommer parties and beach vibes.
If you don’t, don’t worry. You can still get this beauty. At least if you’re living in Germany. Parfumdreams still has some for 38,95 € (I’m pretty sure I did not pay that much but maybe I had a coupon. I’m sorry I can’t remember).
I got mine at UD Galeria Kaufhof in Stuttgart right after it was released.
US friends, it seems like the palette is out of stock on the UD website and I truly don’t know where you can still get it…

This post was no part of any cooperation and in no way influenced by the brand. Everything that was said is my personal opinion.

Rama Publishing – Ratio Notebook and Daily Review Planner


A few weeks ago I got the Ratio Notebook and the Daily Review Planner from Rama Publishing as a PR sample. The Rama pen holder clip was added as an extra gift. I was so happy when I was asked if I wanted to try the products because I had been following Rama Publishing on Instagram for quite a while admiring the amazing notebook that was especially created for law students!

Girls Talk: Setting Limits

Some people take a lot of punches before they fight back. They tend to load all the bullshit of others on their backs.
What I want to tell you and also to myself is: STOP. You need to start setting limits. There might be a lot you can take but you really do not have to deal with every kind of bullshit that is thrown at you.
There used to be a blog post
