What does a beauty blogger blog about when she isn't currently buying many beauty products? I feel a bit at a loss what I could write about or blog about sometimes as I've currently put myself on a no-buy clause due to various reasons. For one, I have so much makeup that I sometimes feel like I'm just wasting my money on another product I probably don't need that much, and two, right now things aren't looking so great on the financial aspect due to some issues going on in my personal life.
But then I realized - goddamnit this is my blog, and I can write about whatever I want, even if it's just some rambley nonsense about nothing in particular.
Well, we've been having a heat wave lately and it's been ridiculously hot here in Switzerland - but I am loving it! I'm definitely more of a summer person than a winter person - as far as I'm concerned it could be summer forever. Although I love early fall too, the turning leaves, chilly mornings with mist on the hills, collecting chestnuts, and wearing cozy pashmina shawls and cute fall jackets. This summer has been pretty uneventful for me overall - I am really ready for a vacation. Unfortunately this summer I could not go on holiday - but hopefully that will change soon. I remember the 2 week road trip my boyfriend and I did last September through Tuscany and it was one of the best vacations I ever had. I would love to go back there sometime, maybe in spring, when everything is green and in bloom. Although yesterday I was watching a travel documentary about a trip East along the Danube river. In case you don't know where this is, it's a large river in Europe that flows into the Black Sea.
Well anyhow, the documentary traveled along this river and it looked absolutely beautiful, especially the farther East it went - everything looked much more rural and untouched. That would be a really great trip to take, and to see some of these places in Eastern Europe that I haven't been to yet. I miss traveling and am a bit of a traveling nut - I traveled for nearly 2 years after high school around Europe and Asia. But, as you get older and have more responsibilities and monthly bills to pay, and a job, it just becomes so hard to take off for a longer amount of time. Sometimes I feel like so much time is wasted working at some McJob, to buy material objects to give meaning to our rather shallow lives, when that time could be spent actually living and doing other things.
Hm, well that's enough rambling for one day. Let me know if you want to see more of these off-topic kind of posts or if they bore you to death - haha! Although I do write this blog for myself mainly, it's always good to get audience input.
Hope you are having a great Sunday! Anyone going to watch True Blood tonight? I personally can't wait to catch the new episode ahhhhh! I'm in love with Eric.
