Hi there readers! Today I am doing something completely different: a recipe post. Whaaat, no cosmetics? Nope, not today. I’ve gotten so deep into vegan cookbooks lately, that I felt inspired to make my very first recipe post.
Today I am serving you a basic, yet very filling and crowd-pleasing meal: marinated tofu with spinach and mushroom. The process of creating this dish is rather easy, yet it takes a little planning in advance since the tofu needs to be marinated before you start cooking. Ideally you’d want to marinate the tofu in the morning, leave for work, school or whatever, and then cook the dish in the evening.
Hi there, readers! As you could already see in my post ‘Went to Berlin and bought a few things‘, I stumbled upon a few very cool looking makeup products in Berlin (aka vegan heaven). I was particularly interested in the brand P2. This is a budget brand with lots of vegan options. These options are all clearly labeled on the site from DM (= Drogerie Markt = the German drugstore that sells P2).
P2 currently has a limited edition that is called ‘Just Dream Like’. I liked the look of most of the products, but the blush from the collection was the one that stood out the most to me. Dare I say that we have a dupe for Too Faced Sweethearts on our hands? Let us compare the two shall we…
Ok, so first things first, Black-Luck was down the past night and the whole of yesterday due to a technical problem with the server. I am so sorry if you tried to access it and could not get trough! I am a total noob when it comes to computer problems myself, so I would like to thank my skilled brother who helped me get Black-Luck back on track.
During March, I reviewed two perfumes by Lush: Sun and Kerbside Violet. Both unique and completely different scents. Today, I am adding another star to the list: Sikkim Girls. This is a complex perfume that is supposed to be seducing and sensual. It contains jasmine, frangipani, tuberose and vanilla. It is easily the most luxurious perfume I own.
Hi there readers. Because I haven’t posted in a while, I wanted to give you guys an update on how I’ve been getting along. Last week, I travelled to Berlin. I wandered about in parks, visited WW II memorials, ate a ton of vegan food, visited art museums, walked a lot and did some shopping. What a beautiful city it is!
I was really amazed at how ‘mainstream’ veganism is in Berlin. There were so many vegan food places that we had a hard time deciding where to go. There even was a completely vegan supermarket called Veganz, aka vegan heaven, in the same street as our hotel. Shopping for vegan beauty products in Berlin was like a dream come true. They have a drugstore called DM that sells so many affordable vegan beauty goodies, I almost fainted. I am not used to having so much choice!
When it comes to beauty, March has been the month of Lush perfumes for me. I purchased three fine specimens and fell for each of them (you can read my review of Sun Perfume here). Kerbside Violet was my first purchase this month and also my first ever liquid Lush perfume. It smells like violets, jasmine, ylang ylang and rosewood. Kerbside Violet is one of the three new fragrances to be released in stores this month, along with All Good Things and Death And Decay.
Two weeks ago, I wrote a review about the Dr. Organic Virgin Olive Oil Face Mask. I was really impressed by the quality of the product and I mentioned that I wanted to try out some more Dr. Organic products. After that, I went to the store and picked out a few of their products that I was most curious about. One of them was the Vitamin E Body Butter. Dr. Organic describes it as a ‘Richly hydrating and restoring body butter with Aloe Vera, Shea Butter and Jojoba.
