I'M BACK!!! feat. the "holy sh** I'm back in Japan"-haul

Hi Pandas,

How are you doing? I have been away for a while but I have good excuses: we were visiting my relatives in France and just a few days after coming back I was already in the plane to Japan. Upon arriving a lot of procedures and applications and registrations waited for me. And it's still not over. I still need to adjust to my new univesity and my boyfriend decided that he doesn't wanna be my boyfriend anymore after living together for just 2 days. So I'm single again and apartment hunting on top of that...it' still chaos basically.

But of course I also had quite a few chances to go shopping so far (Japan is insanely dangerous for my wallet...but who needs food if you can have pretty cosmetics, right. Right?...) and I thought, why not share that glory with you =D
(Please excuse the potato quality pictures)

Summer Must-haves

Hi Pandas,

How are you doing? I'm just starting a week-end in Düssedorf, the city where I studied. It will be the last time for me visiting this city before I leave for Japan. So strange, I have so many memories here and I truly love this place.
Since I have some time to kill before meeting a friend I thought "why not relax at Starbucks and type something for my blog, while watching the city wake up?!".

So, depending on where you live, summer has officially started. Actually already for a while. In Germany, summer is strange as always. Some days are unbearably hot (aircons seem to be almost non-existant in this country....) and others feel much more like a rainy fall day than summer.

I've actually wanted to write this entry for quite a while and I'm probably almost too late but those unbearbly hot days combined with having a room on the 3rd floor without any air-conditioning and 8-9 hours working days have made me quite lazy.
Maybe (hopefully?) this post can be still useful to some nevertheless, even if it's just for next summer.

[Empties] #11

Hi pandas,

How are you doing? Can you believe it, July is already over...once again another month is over. Half of 2015 is already over. Time is flying by. I think I'm saying that in every empties post but these posts make me truly realize how fast time is passing.
This also means that I have less than 2 months left in Germany...

Anyways, here are my empties for this month:

[Review] Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack

Hi pandas,

How are you doing?
The weather here in South-Germany decided to freak out and now it almost feels like rainy season/summer in Japan. Saying, I'm busy wiping sweat off my skin 24/7. This also made my skin freak out and break out -.-

This also means that I feel so lazy and unwilling to do anything...including writing this blog. Because my laptop means even more heat...

Nevertheless, I kicked my own ass, and now I'm writing a review about this little guy here:


What they say:
A sleeping face pack with natural enzymes which removes dead skin cells and provides nutrition at the same time it also renews the skin in the gentlest way.

Mask Maven - Is it worth it?

Hey pandas,

Summer finally started here in Germany and everyone is melting. Strangely I'm doing fine with the heat this time (even though our aircon at work doesn't work properly); normally I'm the first one to suffer from the heat...

Anyways, another month has passed - can time slow down a bit?! It's all happening so fast - and it's time for another empties entry.

My first Cosplay

Hey pandas,

I promised I would write about the reason why I was kinda mia the last days.
Two weeks ago there was an event called "Japan Day" in Düsseldorf. While I studied there I always took part in that event and I wanted to do that one last time before I move to Japan.
And I took that as a chance to do something I always wanted to do: a real cosplay.
I tried cosplaying before but it always ended up only half-way done or something really, really simple.

[Review] Heroine Make Long & Curl Super Waterproof Mascara

Hello lovelies,

How are you doing?
 I finally have some time to relax and calm down, so I hope I can keep up with blogging regularly here =D

Today I have a review on one of my favourite Mascaras: The Long & Curl Super Waterproof Mascara from Heroine Make.


What they say: 

Contains 5mm fibres to extend lashes; they do lengthen lashes and give a very clean and natural look, but if you don’t work fast, you DO get some tiny clumps along the length of the lashes.
Curved brush allows you to easily reach corner lashes, and also helps you to lift and curl your lashes during application. 
Formula holds curl very well. I did not curl my lashes before use and the mascara managed to lift them. 
Expect clean fine length.
