MY WORKOUT SMOOTHIE


Hellooo Hellooo, today´s post is all about my favorite pre-workout smoothie... it´s actually one of the easiest things ever, but I simple loooooove it and it´s also my Nr 1 thing to drink/eat before I do any sports!!
I must say that I´m really really happy with my sports journey at the moment, because I go for a run almost every morning before school... hahaha I know that sounds crazy but I must say- I really do enjoy it! It´s just nice to be active in the morning, to be outside when a lot of people are still sleeping, to watch the sunrise and to have some time to think about your intentions and goals for the day!! 
So if you think this could be something for you- go and try it out, I´m pretty sure you won´t regret it:)




MY WORKOUT SMOOTHIE// one smoothie

1 banana
2 dates
4 tbsp puffed amaranth
1 cup of soy- or oatmilk
a pinch of cinnamon
1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)

1// cut the banana into pieces and put it into a blender with all the other ingredients except the chia seeds and blend it well
2// put your smoothie into a glass and top it with some chia seeds if you want to... et voila:))


I hope you liked this post:)) What do you always eat before doing sports?

MY EVERYDAY MAKE-UP PRODUCTS




I´m really not that kind of person who always wears make-up but I somehow really enjoy applying some make-up and trying out new looks now and than:))
And before I´m gonna have a relaxed evening with my mom with some episodes of Gilmore Girls and maybe a piece of the banana bread I baked today (okayy haha now I actually ended up uploading this the next day...but I had a nice, chilled eve haha:)) I want to share my favorite products I use more or less every day!!
I hope you´re having a relaxed evening//day as well:)



1// Real technique brushes
Okayy you probaly have heared about these brushes 1000 times but I just have to mention them as well... I honestly will never use different brushes again!!

2// Lash curler
I simply got my lash curler from a german drugstore but it works pretty well for me... a lash curler in general is one of the most important things regarding make-up!! On those days where I have no time for applying a lot of make-up but I still want to do a little bit to my face, I just use some concealer and curl my lashes to get them into a nice shape:)

3//Catrice Liquid Camouflage
I honestly don´t know whether you can buy Catrice only in Germany or not... but anyway it´s definitely my favorite make-up brand, because most of the products have an amazing quality but are really cheap!! I simply love their concealer so if you have the opportunity to buy Catrice products, I would really recommend trying out this concealer.

4// Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
I heard a lot good stuff about this powder and when I went to the Netherlands, where they have Rimmel in drugstores, I decided to give it a try, and I will definitely buy it again when my current one is empty!!


5// Benefit Hoola Bronzer
This product is more on the piecy side and I´m pretty sure you´ve heard about it before but I have to say that I use this bronzer almost every day... it just gives my face the perfect contour and adds a little bit of color.

6// Catrice Glam& Doll Mascara
As I said I simply love Catrice and I think they sell really great mascaras...it fells like I´ve actually tried out ever of their mascaras during the last years haha but I was never disappointed by their quality... but the Glam& Doll one is my fav so far:)

7//Urban Decay Naked 2
I know... this is probaly a product you´ve again heard about a lot, but honestly I can 100 percent recommend it!! I got this pallet for my birthday and since than I´ve always used it if I´ve wanted my make-up to be a bit more special. What I really like about it, besides the great quality, is the fact that you can use it for a simple everyday make-up, but also for a night look!!

I really hope you enjoyed the post!! What are your favorite everyday beauty products at the moment?
