Quick personal update

It's been a while since I uploaded a new video on my makeup channel, or posted here! I've just been really busy lately and my mother Elisabeth has also been visiting me and her family for the past few days. She is Swiss but lives in Canada with my father for the past 20 years or so, while I've moved back to Switzerland. Funny thing.

Anyhow it's been really great to see her again, we went on various little trips around the region where I live and had lots of fun together. I often wish I lived closer to my parents, living in a different continent across a vast ocean makes frequent visits very cost prohibitive. It's been years since I've been to visit them in Vancouver - I am hoping to have the chance to go next summer maybe and also go on a little roadtrip through BC. Hmmm....

On Sunday my mother, my boyfriend and I went on a boating trip over the Thunersee, which is a beautiful lake located near the Swiss alps. The lake is so turquoise blue and we had a lot of luck with the weather - sunshine, warm, superb. We took a trip on a restored steam paddle boat called the "Bluemlisalp" which was originally built in 1905 but recently renovated. The engine and the paddle wheels still function in the traditional method, and the inside of the boat looks really old fashioned but beautiful. It was so much fun. I've been trying to upload a video of our daytrip to my other channel for the past few days without success - Youtube seems to be having some hiccups and it's very frustrating. *sigh* Subscribe to my new channel if you want to get an update when that video goes up.

In the meantime, you can watch this funny vlog my mom and I filmed where we ramble about a bunch of nonsense and spend a lot of time giggling and acting silly.



Makeup wise I really need to get my butt in gear and film more Halloween videos. Things have been so busy on my end that I'm afraid I won't have enough time to be able to complete as many videos and requests as I initially had aimed for - but, that's life and Youtube isn't my Nr.1 priority sometimes.

Oh, I've also been using some new makeup brushes that I am absolutely over the moon about. So I will be doing a video on those new brushes soon, they are the softest natural hair makeup brushes I have ever used, softer than MAC even! They are simply amazing. So keep on the lookout for that video, can't give away too many details yet.

Well, hope you have a great Monday! Toodaloo!

    Yeah I can totally see where you get the good looks from! It is great to see a mother - daughter team that is comfortable in each other's company and that too on camera! Yeah I lived away from my family in the US for the last 3 years. My family is in India and I know what you mean about the cost prohibitive travel! When are the scientists going to invent intantaneous time travel???

    Your mum is awesome! My mum and I would probably be like that in front of the camera too. We'd probably do it after a few glasses of wine for extra giggles. :D

    I live in Scotland but my parents live in Germany so although I don't get to see them a lot it is easier on the bank account to visit them than it would be if they were on the other side of the world.
