My Epic Hungary Haul – Summer 2017

Budapest

In case you didn’t know, last month I went to Budapest on a vacation. We had a great time looking at architecture and drinking wine. But, you know me. I’m obsessed with skincare (and everything else). So, of course I took the time to check out drugstores and beauty stores. I’m embarrassed to even post what I bought because I went crazy. I blame the fact that my hotel was next to a DM Drogerie (one of my favorite stores).

When I travel, I look for things… Continue reading | 4 Comments

EauMG’s August 2017 Favorites

Dohany Street Synagogue

August was a busy month. I went to Budapest. We had a great time. However, it was 100º-107° so that wasn’t that great. (Also, a reminder that I’m never traveling in August ever again). While I was there, I saw some lovely architecture, toured synagogues, ate a lot of cold fruit soups, drank the best wines and bought a ton of German pharmacy products. (Shout out to DM for taking all my money). I also got a haircut at a place called “Horror Barbie“… Continue reading | 8 Comments

A lot of people do “Anti-Hauls” on Youtube. If you aren’t familiar with these, these are videos where people talk about what they aren’t buying. With so many launches, I love the premise of this. It gives us a reason to talk about what’s new without actually participating in this makeup economy of “BUT THIS LIMITED EDITION THING!”. Here’s my version, sans video. Here’s my additional comments¹.

There were a lot of launches in August. Not many tempted me. The ones that did sold out in 5 seconds. Now September, this is when all the brands leak their holiday… Continue reading

August 2017 Empties

Let me just say I bought so much while I was in Europe. I can’t even list it all. I stocked up on European sunscreen, German bath/body products, makeup that isn’t available in the US and fancy skincare. I’ve got to stick to a no-buy for the rest of the year now. I just have to. Because I really went overboard. I’ll share my haul with you guys if you promise not to shame me.

Since I traveled so much in August, I thought this would… Continue reading | 20 Comments

EauMG’s July 2017 Favorites

Flavin Dia

Where did July go? I felt it went by really quickly.

Overall, it was a really chill month. It’s summer so a lot of people are vacationing. Throughout the month I was able to entertain folks from out of town. It was nice to catch up with old friends; we’re all spread out all over the place.
