LOTD #6 Video

Hey lovelies!

inspired by Sprinkle of Glitter

Today´s Love Of The Day is about my favourite video. I chose a video of one of my favourite feel good songs. It is "pocketful of sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield. I love this song so much. It always puts me in a good mood and makes me want so sing along as loudly as I can, so I chose a video with lyrics so you can all sing along as well ;) It isn´t the best quality and I´m sure there is a better version out there but I thought the video was just adorable!
So enjoy

I hope you enjoyed it as well as I did!
What is your favourite feel good song?

I think in Germany there is a limited selction of shades in comparison to the U.S. but I can work with that by buying every shade that is available ;) I can complain about the lack of shades after there is no shade left to buy!

So here it comes :D

from left-right: ballet slippers, my private cabana (LE), cute as a button, olé caliente (LE), long stem roses (LE), fishnet stockingS (LE), masquerade belle (LE)

left-right: blue rhapsody (LE), turquoise & caicos, trophy wife, aruba blue, sexy divide, dive bar, luxedo

buy me a cameo, a crewed interest (LE)

these 4 are mini sized bottles from a collection but only 2 of these 4 are limited edition colours
left-right: merino cool, sew psyched, little brown dress (LE), limited addiction (LE)

So which shades do you own by Essie? Any recommendations?

My Scarf Collection

Hello there ;)

I thought I would do a little Collection Series, where I just show you all the products and things I own of one specific topic. So I decided to start with my scarves.
So my scarf collection isn´t the biggest but I love each and every one of them. I don´t think I´ll ever stop buying them. They are great in transforming an outfit instantly. You can dress your outfit up or down with a scarf.

unfortunately these are not mine, image from

So here it comes: my scarf collection

This is my favourite scarf. I got it a couple of years ago from my boyfriend´s parents for christmas so I don´t know where to get this exact scarf. It is the perfect fabric so I can wear it on a rather cold summer day with a cardigan or I can wear it in the middle of the winter with my coat and nice gloves.

I have to admit that I never wore this scarf. I got it last winter from H&M. It it a bit scratchy and I rather went for one of my other scarves.

This is one of my newest scarves. It is from H&M and it is gorgeous. The picture doesn´t do it any justice because it looks so grey. In reality it is a lavender colour and has very thin silver threads woven through it.

That scarf is a precious little gem in my collection. It is a vintage Burberry scarf which I got from a friend FOR FREE!!! So I love it a LOT! 

This one is from Accessorize and I got it on sale for half the price this spring. It matches perfectly with my olive-brownish blazer I have.

This infinity scarf was an impulse buy at primark last winter. I got for 2€ and I just bought it because I never tried one of those infinity scarves before. I developed a close friendship with it :) I can wear it with everything  and it suits every weather condition.

That is the scarf I wore to my prom 2 years ago and I haven´t worn it since. I simply have no use for this but I keep it because of it´s history.

This scarf is from a lovely holiday in Egypt in 2007. I bought it in the desert on the way to Luxor where I visited the Valley Of Kings and all the temples. The man who sold it knotted this scarf onto my head like real  nomads wear it. So I keep it even it is so old and got worn to death.

That one is sooo beautiful. I got it for christmas or m birthday a couple of years ago. It has some sequins (always a plus) and tassels. I LOVE IT!!! I haven´t worn it lately but I definitely will in the next time. 

I don´t know why I still have this scarf. It isn´t very old but I don´t like it anymore. It is beige and ugly. I will definitely throw that one out.

This scarf is another piece I bought on holiday. I bought it in the summer of 2010 in Amsterdam. It is from the brand pieces. I like how it looks with a plain black shirt and jeans. It is so easy to wear.

I haven´t worn this scarf yet. I bought it last winter at H&M. I loved the girly feeling of this one but never got to wear it because all the combinations I tried looked weird. I have to try it out in other ways. Any suggestions on how to wear it?

This is my newest buy. It is such a lovely spring/summer scarf which looks amazing with a plain shirt and a blazer.

This scarf I got for my birthday this year from my friends. It is from H&M. The colour of it is a light pink with silver threads woven through it. I is lovely. I have already worn it a couple of times. It goes with so many outfits.

This is another vintage gem. It is from Cartier and I got it from the same friend I got the Burberry one from. I love the classy elegant look and I love how it makes me feel. 

This scarf is the most worn of the last month. I wore it with plain shirts and chinos or jeans. I saw missglamorazzi on YouTube wearing a similar one in a recent fashion video. 

So that was my little scarf collection. I hope you liked it.

LOTD #5 Fact or Quote

Helloooooo :)

Love Of The Day is inspired by Sprinkle of Glitter

Today´s Love Of The Day is about a fact or a quote that is either interesting or inspiring. I personally  picked  out an inspiring quote about life. I love reading quotes about life because it always makes me think about my own life and how I can change my outlook on it to a more positive one.
I think this quote is inspiring because it makes me realize that I need to enjoy my life and be thankful for my wonderful boyfriend. I am so lucky to have found the one so I am thankful for that every day. It also reminds me to focus on the important things ins life like love, happiness and friends rather than on difficult and complicated ones.

What inspires you?

LOTD #4 Ebay

Hey :)

inspired by Sprinkle of Glitter

I´m a bit late with this post, sorry! 
Today´s Love Of The Day is about my favourite things I find on ebay. 
I am on a hunt for cute things for my home lately. I was looking for some kind of fairy lights for my bedroom and came across this cute LED-Light tree. I can put it on my dresser and it gives my bedroom a nice dimmed lighting and makes it very cozy. It is exactly what I was hoping to find. It sells for 17€ + 5€ shipping which is pretty inexpensive compared to the prices in stores. Shipping to other european countries costs 18€ which is very expensive but if you can´t get your hands on one of these anywhere near you it could be worth the money. I will definitely order one of these soon. It´s sooo cute.

What did you find on ebay this week? Let me know in the comments ;)

Anki :D


Hey everyone :)

I´m so sorry that I didn´t post anything yesterday! I had a long and stressful day at uni and right after that I went out with my friends to watch the Football game and get some cocktails. So I barely had time to get changed. So today I´m working on some new posts.


So look out for some interesting posts this weekend :)

7 Things For 7 Days Update

Hey everyone ;)

image from

I just wanted to update you about my 7 Things For 7 Days Challenge :)
I have been really busy so far and have been able to tick off some things on my To-Do List. I only posted 7 here on this blog but I have A LOT more on my personal list.

1. Clean
I have managed to clean my kitchen YAY ! ! ! It needed a good overall deep clean and I did it :)

2. Have Fun
I set up a Girls Night Out for tomorrow night. I get to see my friends and drink some cocktails and just enjoy the night because on fridays I don´t have classes at uni. Usually I just chill at home or run some errands :)

3. Organize
I finally cleaned and organized my office desk so that I have a clean work space when I start revising for my exams this week ;)

So as you can see I was able to tick off 3 things on my To-Do list and I am willing to do more :) I will update you again about my progress later this week.

Anki :D

P.S.: My new Love Of The Day post will be up right after this one so look out for that ;)

LOTD #3 Book

Hey there :)

Love Of The Day is inspired by Sprinkle Of Glitter

Today´s Love Of The Day is about my favourite book. I chose the book I Heart New York written by Lindsey Kelk. I love this book because it is such a feelgood story about a woman who catches her fiance cheating on her. So she runs off to New York. I don´t want to tell you more about the story because I would accidentally spoil everything ;) So read it yourself ! It is absolutely brilliant. And there´s a whole series about the protagonist Angela Clark. I know I don´t give you much information about this book but I think you have to discover the story yourself by reading it. I can assure you that this book wont disappoint you. It is funny, it is girly and it is fabulous. Little hint: for the ones who love Sex and the City: This is the book for you!

image from here

The I Heart series is available on Amazon and there is a website for every book of this series with helpful tips about the city, so for I Heart New York visit

Let me know what your favourite books are at the moment. I love to read so give me some inspiration :D

My Favourite Lipsticks

HI !

image from

For today´s blog post I decided to show you my favourite Lipticks. I have to say these are all high end products but this is due to the great quality and not because of the brands or something like that. I will also show some of my drugstore lipsticks that are very nice in one of my next posts.

So let´s start...

left-right: MAC Viva Glam Nicki, MAC Speak Louder, Dior Rouge Dior in 444 Red Muse, Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in 37 L' Exuberante, Chanel Rouge Coco in 17 Orchidee

swatches in the same order as above 

As you can tell from the fotos I LOVE pink lipsticks. I think they suit my skintone and my haircolour. When I wear one of those Lipsticks I feel confident and happy :)
So now into detail about those lipsticks.

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick
This lipstick is a little bit tricky to apply. I find it the best when I just dab a little bit onto my lips and rub it in with my finger to really work it into my lips. It is a satin finish so it can be a little drying and can easily set into the lines of your lips or make your lips look flaky so make sure your lips are in good condition. The color i really stunning. It is bright! Really bright! So make sure you feel good wearing it.

MAC Speak Louder Lipstick
This lipstick is very easy to wear. The Creamsheen finish of this lipstick makes this lipstick very easy to apply and to wear also. It does not dry out your lips or sink into the lines of your lips. The colour is bright but wearable so you can easily wear it during the daytime without feeling weird about it. You wont look like a clown ;)

Dior Rouge Dior in 444 Red Muse
This lipstick always makes me smile when I wear it. It is such a pretty spring/summer colour. It is bright but not too bright so that you can easily wear it during the day. The texture is just perfect. It is moisturizing, silky and makes your lips look perfect. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT ! ! ! ;)

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in 37 L'Exuberante
The texture of this lipstick is a bit drying because of the velvet finish but it is manageable. You just have to use a lip scrub and moisturize. The colour is a wonderful cool pink which looks fabulous on fair skin. I think this colour was a limited edition one but you can find similar lipsticks in this shade.

Chanel Rouge Coco in 17 Orchidee
This is my favourite everyday colour.  It is a beautiful redish colour. It is a "my lips but better" colour for me. So I use this lipstick all the time with almost every eye make-up. It is easy in handling because of the silky smooth texture. It makes your lips look super duper fabulous. So this lipstick is an overall perfect lipstick for everyday use.

This is it for my favourite lipsticks. If you want to see fotos of them applied on my lips to see how they look then just let me know ;)

LOTD #2 Blog Post

Hey everyone :)

LOTD is inspired by Sprinkle of Glitter

Todays Love Of The Day Post is about my favourite Blog Post, that I have read lately.
I have spent so much time reading different blogs lately, so having to choose one specific blog post is difficult.
I was really inspired by Alexandra from HRH Collection. She is such a sweet girl I and think she has such great taste and she always looks gorgeous :)
So her latest post is about the little pretty things in her life at the moment. I love this kind of blog posts where bloggers show little glimpses into their lives or homes. It makes me want to redecorate or just dress up ;)
It leves me feeling warm and fuzzy inside haha :)

So this was it for todays Love Of The Day Post
I hope you liked it!

LOTD #1 Clothes

HEY! ! !

This is me again! At the moment I am totally obsessed with the blog Sprinkle of Glitter by the wonderful and inspiring Louise. She is so beautiful and hillarious :) And her Baby Glitter is just soooo adorable !!!
So I read her post about the new series she is doing on her blog, Love Of The Day; where she is showing a super duper item, which she  came across in the internet, EVERY DAY ! So I decided to do it, too! YAY!
So every Monday I will show you a clothing item I am loving at the moment.

Louise aka Sprinkleofglitter on YouTube,  LOTD at Sprinkleofglitter

Soooo today I was looking around on ASOS instead of listening to my Professor at Uni ;) and came across this embellished Kimono. It is a lovely cream Kimono style cardigan made of a silky material. It has sequin stripes and is just overall gorgeous and adorable.
I like the loose fit. It looks really flattering to a curvy body. That is a definite plus if you want to cover up your upper arms or a litte wider hip area. So it´s perfect for me ;)
I love a little sequin here and there even in my everyday wardrobe so this makes a perfect summer cardigan. Here in Germany the weather is just miserable. It´s cold and windy and it rains A LOT ! ! ! So this cardigan can be worn over a simple black or white top and makes the outfit a little bit more weather appropriate :)
Also it can be dressep up for nighttime with some heels and a clutch. I can totally see myself wearing this on a night out with my girls sipping some bright summer cocktails :)
It is a liiiiiiiittle bit pricey with about 100€ but I think it would be totally worth it.

So this is my first LOTD post inspired by Sprikleofglitter !
If you liked it let me know!

7 Things for 7 Days

Hey everyone!
I recently read the "7 Things for 7 Days" blog post written by the lovely Louise aka Sprikleofglitter here and decided to do it, too. I am German so English is not my first choice in terms of writing blog posts but I´ll do so because that way everyone can unterstand what I´m writing about. Please forgive me if I make mistakes languagewise ;)

(image from
Sooooooo this is my list of things for the next 7 days:

Have Fun: this week I want to go out with my friends and have a good time and have some yummie cocktails :)

Organize: I want to reorganize my closet and my office desk becaue they are a cluttered mess!

Clean: I really need to clean the kitchen ;)

Write: I challenge myself to write a blog post every day of this week (including the LOTD also inspired by Louise)

Learn: I have to start revising for my exams, which start in two weeks ooh oooooooh O.O

Dress Up: In the last few weeks I was so stressed out and didn´t bother to dress myself up nicely. I want to put a little more effort into this in the next couple of days.

Smile: I think it´s time to focus on the good things in my life rather than on the difficult things that give me a head ache. Soo I try to think positive :D

So this was my little list of tasks for this week. What are yours? 

BYE ! ! !

Meine täglichen Beauty Basics

Heute möchte ich gerne meine heißgeliebten täglichen Basics vorstellen. Manche Teile darunter sind schon lange in Benutzung und manche befinden sich noch in der Testphase. Es sind die Dinge, die ich jeden Tag verwende, unabhängig davon, welchen Look ich an diesem Tag schminke.

1. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Make-Up in 020 Cameo
Dieses Produkt habe ich erst vor kurzem gekauft und befindet sich noch in der Testphase. Bis jetzt finde ich es aber sehr gut und fast noch besser als meine Lieblingsfoundation, die Boujois 1,2,3 Perfect Foundation.

erhältlich in der Drogerie für ca. 6€

2. Maybelline Pure Powder Matte Finish in 015 Translucent
Dieses Puder habe ich ebenfalls noch nicht lange. Ich habe es mir eigentlich eher als Notlösung zugelegt, bis ich dazu komme, mir ein neues MAC MSF Natural zu kaufen. Bis jetzt finde ich es auch recht gut und solide. Ich werde es auch auf jeden Fall aufbrauchen.

erhältlich in der Drogerie für ca. 3€ (weiss den genauen Preis leider nicht mehr SORRY)

3. Real Techniques Stippling Brush
Ich war vor zwei Monaten in London und habe mir dort einige Real Techniques Pinsel zugelegt. Besonders ins Herz geschlossen habe ich die Stippling Brush. Damit lässt sich das Maybelline Mousse Make-Up einfach super schnell und gleichmäßig auftragen und verteilen. Ich möchte sie nicht mehr missen.

gekauft bei Boots in London, Preis ca. 12 Pfund

4. bebe young care Goodbye Lipstick in pink
Dieser Lipbalm war ein Impulskauf an der Kasse im dm. Er lag achtlos zwischen den Kaugummis. Ich habe ihn einfach mal mitgenommen, da ich sowieso eine neue Lippenpflege brauchte. Er hat sich schon sehr bewährt. Er gibt etwas Farbe und riecht super lecker nach den essbaren Bonbon-Lippenstiften, die es früher immer am Kiosk zu kaufen gab.

erhältlich in der Drogerie für ca. 2€

5. Essence Eyeliner Pen und P2 Intensive Khol Eyeliner in 010 Dramatic Japan
Diese beiden Eyeliner wechseln sich bei mir oft ab. Entweder trage ich einen Lidstrich und benutze dafür den Essence Eyeliner oder ich strage schwarzen Kajal von P2 auf meiner Wasserlinie und am unteren Wimpernkranz. Das hängt davon ab, welchen Lidschatten ich trage. Ich bin mit beiden Produkten voll zufrieden und würde sie mir auch nachkaufen :)

erhältlich in der Drogerie für jeweils ca. 2€

6. Maybelline Falsche Wimpern Black Drama Mascara
Die Mascara ist meine absolute Lieblingsmascara, weil sie meine Wimpern lang, voll und geschwungen zugleich wirken lässt. Sie trennt die Wimpern gut und lässt sie einfach super dramatisch und schön aussehen.

erhältlich in der Drogerie für ca. 10€

7. MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in NW20
Ich habe eine kleine Hass-Liebe mit diesem Concealer entwickelt. Zum einen deckt er super und zuverlässig Augenringe und auch Unreinheiten ab. Zum anderen setzt er sich unter den Augen sehr schnell in den kleinen Fältchen ab und sieht sehr unschön aus. Man muss damit ganz vorsichtig umgehen, damit er das nicht tut. Das ist mir zu umständlich und deshalb kommt er nur manchmal zum Einsatz. Ich werde ihn mir auch nicht nachkaufen, sondern werde mir einen anderen aussuchen, sobald dieser aufgebraucht ist.

erhältlich bei Douglas, an MAC Countern/Läden oder hier für 19€

Das war also meine tägliche Schmink-Routine mit allen Produkten die ich benutze. Ich benutze natürlich auch Pinsel für den Auftrag von Puder und Concealer, aber die sind nicht so besonders als dass ich sie hier zeigen wollte. Ansonsten füge ich nach Lust und Laune noch Lidschatten und Lippenstift hinzu.
Es tut mir Leid, dass die Bilder einen so unschönen Hintergrund haben, aber dort auf der Fensterbank waren die Lichtverhältnisse noch am besten. Das Wetter ist einfach miserabel :(
Ich hoffe es war interessant und hat etwas Spaß gemacht :)

Bis bald
Anki :D

Samstag, 23. Juni 2012


Das ist mein erster eigener Blog und das hier wird mein erster Post :)
Bevor ich aber hier tolle und interessante (und vielleicht auch spannende) Blogposts verfasse, die sich alle um Beauty, Fashion und Lifestyle drehen werden, werde ich erst einmal an einem TAG teilnehmen. Ich habe lange überlegt, womit ich meinen Blog starten soll und habe mich entschieden, dass ich mich zuerst einmal selbst vorstellen werde. Also werde ich jetzt bei dem "About Me" TAG mitmachen (gesehen auf

1. Das bin ich

Wie heißt du?
Ich heiße Ann-Kathrin, aber meine Familie und Freunde nennen mich Anki :)

Wie alt bist du?
Ich bin 21 Jahre alt.

Woher kommst du?
Ich bin geboren und aufgewachsen im Ruhrgebiet, wo ich auch immer noch wohne.

Zeige ein aktuelles Foto von dir!

2. Mein Blog

Seit wann bloggst du schon?
Seit heute ;)

Wieso dieser Blogname?
Er kommt daher, dass ich oft AnkiSchatzi genannt wurde. Meist von Freunden und auch eher scherzhaft aber das wurde dann so ein fortlaufender Name für mich :)

Über was schreibst du am liebsten?
Ich MÖCHTE am liebsten über mein Hobby, das exzessive Kaufen und Benutzen von Make-Up, Kleidung und anderen schönen Dingen und alles was damit zusammenhängt, schreiben. Wir werden sehen was daraus wird! ;)

3. Mein Leben außerhalb dieses Blogs

Hast du einen Freund/Mann/Kinder?
Ja, ich habe einen Freund, aber wir sind nicht verheiratet und haben auch keine Kinder :)

Was arbeitest du?
Ich studiere Grundschullehramt und arbeite nebenbei als Barista

Was machst du in deiner Freizeit?
In meiner Freizeit schlafe ich ganz gern ;) und gehe gern shoppen. Ich lese aber auch sehr gern Bücher, Magazine oder auch Blogs. Viel Freizeit verbringe ich auch bei YouTube.

4. Ich und mein Aussehen

Was trägst du im Alltag?
Am liebsten trage ich Jeans und schöne schlichte Oberteile. Meist trage ich dazu einen Blazer und Schnürschuhe. Also insgesamt schlicht, gepflegt und modern.

Wie würdest du deinen Schminkstil beschreiben?
Ich lege sehr viel Wert auf Foundation und Concealer, da meine Haut sehr schlecht ist :( Ansonsten setze ich auf neutrale Töne für mein AMU und schwarzen Eyeliner/Kajal. Ich habe außerdem eine Vorliebe für knallig pinke Lippenstifte :)

Auf welche 10 Produkte kannst du nicht mehr verzichten?
1. Bourjois 1,2,3 Perfect Foundation
2. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural
3. MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer
4. Maybelline Falsche Wimpern Black Drama Mascara
5. bebe Goodbye Lipstick Lippenpflege in pink
6. MAC Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe
7. Alverde Gel Eyeliner
8. Chanel Rouge Coco in Nr. 17 Orchidee
9. MAC Eyeshadow in AllThatGlitters
10. Dior Lipstick in Nr. 444 Red Muse

Seit wann schminkst du dich schon?
Ich habe mich schon sehr Früh regelmäßig geschminkt, da ich schon mit ca. 11 eine recht schlechte Haut hatte. Seitdem habe ich regelmäßig Foundation getragen und so mit 13/14 habe ich dann angefangen mich auch mal mit Lidschatten oder anderem zu schminken :)

5. Andere Blogs

Worüber liest du gerne?
Ich lese gern Hauls oder auch Reviews. Gern schaue ich auch Fototagebücher an oder Blogposts über Favoriten und aufgebrauchte Produkte.

Wie muss ein Blog sein, dass du ihn regelmäßig liest?
Ich finde es grundsätzlich gut, wenn regelmäßig neue Posts geschrieben werden. Bei den Themen sollte es abwechslungsreich und ausgewogen sein. Von allem etwas wäre super. 

Was geht überhaupt nicht bei einem Blog?
Schlimm finde ich es bei einem Blog, wenn man merkt, dass sich jemand keine Mühe gegeben hat. Oftmals liest man Posts, bei denen man merkt, dass der Autor den Post nur geschrieben hat, damit er wieder was zu veröffentlichen hat und nicht, weil ihn das Thema wirklich interessiert.

Hast du einen Lieblingsblog?
Ich lese sehr gerne die Posts bei oder auch bei . Bei den internationalen Blogs lese ich gern oder auch .

Sooooo, das war der "About Me" TAG ! Ich hoffe es war lesenswert und auch etwas unterhaltsam. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn jemand das hier überhaupt lesen würde. Wenn jemand bei diesem TAG mitmachen möchte, der fühle sich bitte getagged! Ich würde mich über die Links dazu freuen.
