Maybelline Fit Me (Matte+Poreless)

A new discovery on my shelf has been being tested for the past month before I write this post – the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation. I always struggle to find makeup, which gets along with my skin, does not break me out and stays even the whole day. I popped into DM a few months ago and I saw that this foundation was on sale so I decided that even if I don’t like it, it would not be a big loss. However, to my surprise, I fell in love with it and now I will tell you why.

Vienna Design Week And a Walk Around Kärntnerstrasse

In the few days before the lectures at my department start, I decided to indulge in a more of a cultural program. The beginning of October here is always marked with the Lange Nacht der Museen, however, this year the Vienna Design Week is also taking place and it is all over the city. More than seventy venues are taking place in this amazing project so make sure to take a look at some of those during the weekend.

Ulrich

Vienna is not only famous for its coffee culture but also its “brunch” culture. The charm of ordering your breakfast at 3 in the afternoon and not feeling in any way guilty about it is one of the small perks you get when you live here. Shortly after I have returned to Vienna, I turned back to an old-time favorite and mainly “Ulrich” so today I decided to tell you a little bit more about this awesome hidden gem, hugged tight between the small streets of the 7th district.

Kipferl (Rolls) With White Cheese

Okay honestly, I didn’t know how to translate this into English/ German in order to be as close as possible to the original meaning so I went for “Kipferl”. Basically, those tiny, white-dough yeast rolls, filled with cheese have been my favorite snack for as long as I can remember. I still go back to my memories when my granny used to bake them for me and my cousins for an afternoon snack to grab and go out to play. I am a big fan of baking, but until now it never occurred to me to make them myself. They turned out great so I decided to share the recipe with you.

Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

This is a product I have been using for the past three years and I haven’t even thought of switching to something else. In my teenage years, I suffered from oily, acne prone skin and I was looking for something that will battle all that. I started out with Clinique’s mini kit “Acne Solutions”. As time went by my skin gradually healed and its state improved, however, I still needed a good cleanser.

Orient Express

This iconic train has been coming to my hometown for years and years and now I finally got to see it! Of course, I have read Agatha Christie’s one of a kind “Murder on the Orient Express” as well as many other of Poaro’s adventures, but till now I never had the chance to go and see it. It was a huge thrill, especially because people here are always happy to welcome the train, wave at the travellers and take some pictures till it takes off.

Photography, or how it all started

I am a person, who does not settle for one thing. I have always had multiple interests and hobbies, but two have stuck with me since childhood till now and mainly reading books because I am a passionate reader and photography. My great-grandpa and my grandmother were both professional photographers back in the day with their own studios and everything. My dad did not really choose to go for this career, but it was a passion of his for as long as I can remember. He passed it on to me and taught me how to take photos with a film camera when I was maybe still seven or eight.
