The Teylamail 33 – The first update

Awww, you guys! Just popped by the stats for our fundraiser, and we´re at 20% of our goal! Yaaaaay! Thank you! Since last week we´ve had two running sessions. I know, it isn’t much, but because of Mam´s shin splints we are taking it easy. After all, I’ve got to keep her running until 17th…

Instant #glowmo

Sometimes something will pop up in your social media feed that you can´t stop thinking about, and for me one of those products were the Charlotte Tilbury Instant look in a palette in “Beauty glow”. The second I saw it in Alessandra Steinherr´s feed  I knew there was no turning back. No unseeing that palette. In…

The Teylamail 31 – To Miss T From Mam

So this, the first Teylamail in ages won´t be written by Miss T but by me. She is currently fast asleep for one. Second, it´s her birthday. Four years ago on this day the best thing in our lives entered this world. We didn´t know it at the time, but in three months from that…

Breaking Bread

No, literally. I couldn´t seem to find a good translation for the term, but I´m sure there is one, even if pull apart bread or break apart bread is not quite adequate. I don´t usually do recipes on here, but some things are just too good not to share. If you follow me on instagram…

Twelve Shades Of Neutrals

Ah, the Urban Decay Naked Palettes. The best way to get your hands on wearable quality eyeshadows in beautiful neutrals. You´d think if you had a palette like Tonka Imperiale or Cuir Cannage, you´d have all the browns you´d ever need. Reality is a lot different, though, and these neutral tones are actually quite addictive. Me,…

The Quick and Casual

I had these good intentions to get back to blogging regularly back in November, and even took quite a few photos in spite of the poor lighting conditions. Not being willing to invest in whatever lighting equipment and whatnots other people use, I am more or less doomed to settle for a cool murky setting…

Shame, shame, shame…

And for once I am not referring to one of my favourite shades of lipstick (Urban Decay). No, I´ve just about had it. The other day a male co-worker decided to tell me “You don´t need all this stuff!” referring to my lip balm, gloss and hand cream lying in the drawer at the counter…

La Dolce Vita

It´s becoming pretty obvious that I am in love with two of Charlotte Tilbury´s Limited Edition Luxury Palettes, but what about the permanent lineup? Well, in spite of myself and my apprehension after having had the Vintage Vamp palette applied and found that it aged me 10 years, I am now the owner of the…

My Picks From Guerlain Holiday 2016

I am trying really hard to avoid picking up beauty products that won´t be used more than a couple of times, though there will always be some exceptions to a rule like that. Untouchables, with embossing that is too perfect for words, and Guerlain´s bottles of fairy dust that they sometimes launch with their holiday…

Goldilocks and the Legendary Muse Palette

You know how sometimes your expectations for a product are so high you can hardly breathe for the dance of getting your hands on them, only to find yourself so let down you don´t know how you even got there? And when you´ve clambered up out of that crater where you landed, you´ve kind of…

The Benefits of Serums and My Thoughts on My Latest Acquisition.

The other day I went shopping with a friend. She was in the market for a new foundation, and I was there to give my advise on colours, textures, what´s new and the likes. I wasn´t really going to get anything, other than a cup of coffee, but after having convinced my friend that Guerlain´s…
