The YouTube Review - Girls: GlamLifeGuru

22:13:00
Hey guys!


You don't know to whose beautiful face this is? Then you're missing out!
Tati from GlamLifeGuru, everyone!

Tati is a very lovely young woman and beauty guru from the US. She posts 5 YouTube videos per week. That's a plus, right? I love to see a new video of hers popping up in my subscription box every time. I think, her videos are very helpful for all us beauty lovers out there! You wonder, which products are worth the money (Hot or Not Thursday) may them be high end or drugstore products, how you get rid of all the bacteria in your foundation sponge (TipTuesday) or want to be up to date on her wedding organisation (WeddingWednesday)?

Hot or Not?

17:38:00

Hey guys!

I thought, it's about time that I talk a little bit about the item which makes us look more awake, gives blond lashes a visible life and which brings the whole makeup look to completion: Mascara!

Skin Saver: Moringa Body Butter

20:00:00

Hey guys!

As the temperature slowly begins to decrease and it gets more cloudy and windy, our skin slowly starts to get dehydrated quickly. I find myself reach for hand cream and want to put on body butter after having a shower to give my skin a little pick-me-up more often. For the body, there are so many products on the market these days. One product which is in between drugstore and high end is the Body Butter by The Body Shop. There is probably noone out there who has never heard of them because they have a huge range of scents, great quality and are still affordable at the same time.

Shop, Explore, Bond

01:35:00
Hey guys!

So, the other day, a good friend of mine, my sister and I went on a shopping daytrip to Dortmund. We went by train, so we had about an hour to catch up and prepare emotionally for the shopping spree, which was about to happen.
Our first stop was the Thier-Galerie, a very big shopping mall with every shop anyone could wish for. After having a quick look into KIKO, we went on into Primark to search for some autumnal pieces. First things in the bag.

Inspiration Tuesday

01:05:00
Hey guys!

We all know Emma Watson as a young British actress ever since she started portraying Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films at the age of 10. But as the girl grew up she became a strong woman who knows what she wants. She is a fashion icon of today's generation and a woman I look up to. 

Her achievements in terms of her career as an actress, her university degree and her involvement in politics as the United Nations Women Goodwill Ambassador, and projects for girls' education in Third World countries make me bow down before her.

The YouTube Review - Girls: Pixiwoo (Part 2)

19:29:00
Hey guys!

If you can not already tell, this is Nicola Haste aka Nic aka the second half of Pixiwoo!
With her sister Sam, she runs her own YouTube channel, brush business, Makeup courses, and Magazine. You may say, there is no time left for any private life, but she somehow manages to find the time for her family, her husband and her two adorable children as well as her siblings and mother, who ALL have YouTube channels, too! You can tell, they must have inherited the presenting gene. I don't have another explaination. (I have to say, I watch all of them!) I take my hat off to you, Nic!


Hot or Not?

16:18:00
Hey guys!

...and welcome to another 'Hot or Not'!
These posts are actually inspired by the Mrs. Glamour, Tati, who I will tell you about soon (in case you don't already know who she is ;) )

This time, I want to talk about three products from the exfoliator/mask department.

If you have tried these or one of them (I'm sorry that I don't have the English name, but I'm sure they look the same or similar in other countries), then let me know what you think of them!

Firstly, I have these two Garnier pruducts which I will present to you now.

The YouTube Review - Girls: Amelia Liana

16:30:00
Hey guys!

Do you know this British lady?
You're right, it's Amelia Liana. Fashion and Beauty Blogger. Voice of the unspoken.
What I mean by that is that she talks about everything beauty or body related which a girl would ever want to know but not everyone would openly talk about on YouTube.

London - Take 2!

02:44:00
Hey guys!

So here is part 2 of my trip to London, actually day 2-4. 
It's a pity that I did not have more time, especially for the National Gallery and the Natural History Museum. I would have really enjoyed staying around  at those places for longer.

London Calling!

23:54:00
Hey guys!

As I told you a while ago, I planned a week-long holiday in London. And I went. And fell in love.
So what I expected from this trip was more or less quite excessive sightseeing on day 1 (I was praying for sunshine like forever, kind of, and it worked!) and snap as many shots as I possibly can, and then a bit of shopping in the streets of the fashion capital on day 2, as well as just enjoying the city and getting inspired by the surroundings and the people who would cross my path. Well, most of that, I would tick off my list, but there was not that much of relaxation to be honest. Which was obviously not the city's fault, but in a way it was, like there is so much to see and to go to and my feet just were not prepared for a 10+ hour walk. Every day. But lying in bed each night, I thought to myself: Do you want to enjoy these few days of exploring the British capital or do you want to moan about your feet (like in my head)? I think you can guess the answer when scrolling down. And without any further rambling, I'd now say: If your feeling nice or just need a bit of a holiday-ish feeling, enjoy this 'little' stroll in pictures through London. 
To make this not crazy long, I decided, I would do a separate post for days 2-4 which will follow soon :)

The YouTube Review - Girls: Patricia Bright

01:49:00
Hey guys!

Are you ready for your next favourite blogger/YouTuber? You better are! ;)
This gorgeous girl is Patricia Bright.

I stumbled across her channel when watching other YouTube British beauty gurus and was instantly fascinated by her fun personality. You may say, oh, she said that several times now for several YouTubers, but it's true. It was not only the beauty and skincare tips and routines that kept me staying but also her lifestyle videos and her especially amazing fashion sense. I think, she picks the most amazing pieces of clothing, let it be a designer piece or from H&M. She throws it on and just looks stunning and not like she was trying hard. She is such a fashion inspiration for me, I wish my purse would fill itself so that I could go shopping and buy all the nice stuff or similar things that hang in the German stores. Now. That would be it, right?

Hot or Not?

19:49:00
Hey guys!

As I do not have the best skin and I'm always on the hunt for the one facewash/peeling/face mask - may it be single products or 'two in one'-s - I thought, I would share my experience with the products I try along the way. At the moment I own three facewashes of different brands, one exfoliating scrub and one three in one-product. I thought, this time I would start with the facewashes.

Update: FIFA World Cup 2014 - Group G

19:22:00
Hey guys!

Having started this topic, I feel like, I have to keep you updated with the happenings in Brazil, especially in Group G, and my thoughts concerning the matches.
Have you seen the matches Germany vs Portugal and Germany vs Ghana? I talked about the match against Portugal in my last post already and I can really say, I did not expect what has happened so far. Before the first match had started, I thought, hopefully Germany will win against Portugal, but they will probably get the one or other goal against, and that Ghana would be an easier opponent. 

Far from it! The match against Portugal totally surprised me! Müller became the football hero of the Germans! 3 goals in one match (in a world cup!)! That is hard to beat!

Late to the Party

23:44:00
Hey guys!

Remember when "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" was on in the cinemas?


One week before the premiere  in the German cinemas, I watched the free TV premiere of "The Hunger Games". Before I was not quite interested in it for whatever reason. My sister had seen it in the cinema and told me about it but it maybe appeard to much fantasy-ish for me (although I like e.g. the Harry Potter films). I don't know. Since I saw it on TV, I couldn't wait to see the second part! After having seen it and after I realized that the third film will only be out in November 2014, I thought, no. There's no way, I can wait that long.

The YouTube Review - Boys: ThatcherJoe

22:49:00
Hey guys!

This time I will review the YouTube channel of Joe Sugg aka ThatcherJoe.



We have to talk!

00:57:00
Hey guys!

Well, in general, I never liked having to give a talk. If it was in a group or alone (which was obviousely even worse). When I had to do it at school, I hated it. I was well-prepared, that was not the problem. I think it was the faces which kind of stared at me (which feels much more intense when standing in front of the class, right?). Faces of people who expected me to speak properly, know my topic, be organized and be at least a little bit entertaining. And then there was the thoughts, that if I failed, I would have to be among them till the end of the lesson and make myself look foolish. I thought. Also, there was the teacher who expects even more than the classmates and is about to grade your performance. The teacher who you don't want to be worse-rated by, even though you had been well-prepared.

Girls' Night Out

00:58:00
Hey guys!

Last night I went out with some of my girl friends who I normally don't see very often because they have moved to another city for studying and because we're all very busy with uni stuff. So I was more than excited to see them again after a very long time. It feels so unreal that finishing school was in spring 2012 and it's already 2014 now and that we are all went in such different personal directions!

The YouTube Review - Girls: Sprinkle of Glitter

21:17:00
Hey guys!

Since I enjoy watching YouTube videos very much and therefore do it all the time, I came up with the idea of starting a series called "The YouTube Review". In this series, I will write posts about male and female YouTubers, music channels and channels with other content.

Today's post will be about Louise aka Sprinkle of Glitter!

Getting those nails done!

00:26:00
Hey guys!

Yes, I think I own quite a few different nail varnishes, but I have seen so much bigger collections than mine! Seeing the amount of beauty products that some beauty bloggers keep in their drawers can be kind of overwhelming but - at least in my opinion - is amazing at the same time!

I cannot even imagine the number of looks you could create with them.
I also quite enjoy trying out various looks but because being a student means having a limited budget for beauty products. I rather spend my money on basic makeup stuff and a new lipstick here and there and of course: nail varnishes. There are so many cheap ones in the local drugstore which everyone can afford so that finding YOUR perfect colour should not be a problem.
I think, painting nails is a special kind of art like makeup or combining fashion items to most unique outfits.

My 2nd Home - Côte d'Azur

22:54:00
Hey guys!

It's me again! This time I want to tell you about the Gulf of St Tropez. Since about 15 years or so, my family and I visit this one place every year. In the first years, we went to (my beloved) Port Grimaud in the Easter or autumn holidays. I was so sad when we couldn't go in 2012 due to my final school exams (comparable to A-Levels), and EVEN SADDER when I realized that  the Easter holidays would not match the opening date of the camp site on which we live in mobile homes when being down there in 2013 :(

Having that in mind, you can probably imagine how excited I was when we were on our way this year! :D

I hope these photos will explain, why I love this region so much and why I refer to it as my second home.


An impression of the actual harbour of Port Grimaud. Love these coloured little houses! Also, I think, I might have a thing for sailing boats!

So..this is me!

03:25:00
Hello and welcome to you reading this!



As this is the very first blogpost I have ever written, I hope it will turn out all right and you enjoy reading it :) I'm also very happy for criticism, comments and ideas on how to improve ;)
Firstly, I want to mention that I have never visited an English-speaking country yet, but I'm studying English at university. Having told you that, I hope that my English is not too bad. One personal aim of this blog - apart from sharing experiences - for me is to improve my language skills. 
Now to the personal side. My name is Viktoria and I am a 21-year-old student from Germany, who enjoys reading beauty, lifestyle, and fashion blogs as well as watching youtube videos for hours and hours...aaand hours...oopsy daisy.
