Review: The Oh She Glows Cookbook

August 1, 2015 |

Today I will be reviewing a cookbook that every vegan in the world should own: The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon. If you are not familiar with this cookbook, you might know Angela from her famous blog that shares the same name: Oh She Glows. The blog and the cookbook focus on healthy vegan wholesome foods. I’ve had this book for about a month now and after trying thirteen recipes, I am ready to give my opinion about it. The good and the bad, here we go. Read More

What I have been up to…

July 28, 2015 |

Hi there readers. You may have noticed the spiderwebs and dust gathering on Black-Luck lately. It is true, I have been MIA for a while now. I am one bad blogger! The truth is that my life has taken a hectic turn lately. Let me explain.. Read More

Talking about cookbooks

May 3, 2015 |

A few days ago, I posted my very first recipe on Black-Luck. I honestly had some doubts whether a recipe would be appropriate on my blog or not. After some thought, I decided to go for it and I introduced this new genre of posts here, on my special place on the internet. You might not know this about me, but I am pretty passionate about food. When I was a kid, I used to watch my mom bake and cook in our kitchen for hours. It looked like magic to me. Every Sunday, she took her time to make an extra luxurious meal for us, baking loafs, making jam, chocolate spread, savory salads and hot cocoa. I was her partner in crime, cutting vegetables, laying out all of the ingredients needed and following her simple orders. Read More

Marinated Tofu with Spinach & Mushroom

April 28, 2015 | 1

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.

P2 Just Dream Like Trio Blush meets Too Faced Sweethearts Blush

April 23, 2015 |

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… Read More

Review: Lush Sikkim Girls

April 16, 2015 | 1

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. Read More
