• Louis Widmer 3-in-1 Cleansing Lotion Review

    The world of beauty products is completely new territory for me, I’m not gonna lie! I’ve only recently started testing the some of the beauty products that I receive for my blog. In the past I’d much rather rather pass them on to my girlfriends, often in exchange for outfit photos or quick instagram shots. It was a win-win situation! With my beauty stash growing significantly over the last few months I thought I might as well give a few of the products a go myself and see how I like them. First up: Louis Widmer 3-in-1 facial cleansing lotion…

    Travelling In Style

    Things are finally winding down in this household. I’m back to work without the foresight of vacation and I haven’t started prepping for the Holidays just yet. With a laid-back week ahead of me I found some time to edit a few of the outfits we’ve shot this Fall and I want to kick the series off with this travel look! If there’s one rule in travel dressing it surely must be “comfort above all”! My travel outfits usually involve my black J.Crew pixie pants (a fancy way of saying leggings), an oversized knit and sneakers. I love that my…

    Let’s Talk About My Blazer Obsession

    Me and my blazers, it’s a never-ending love story. I have about ten. I think. Maybe more. And I wear them with love. This season I really wanted to join in on the Prince of Wales trend, but didn’t want to drop the cash for a large winter coat in the check print. I like the classic style, but I wasn’t sure if the trend was just another Instagram-one-day-wonder and would feel very “October 2017” soon. Instead I searched and found a jacket that I could use as a transition piece in late fall and a layering piece throughout winter.…

    Sothys Skincare Review

    A beauty post on The Ginger Diaries. What a wonder that you get to live to see this great day! I have another wonder I’d like to talk about: Sothys skincare. Sothywho? Sothys truly is a hidden gem among the skin care brands of this world. Let me prove my point. Everyone, Raise your hand if you’ve ever heard about Babor Skincare. Now raise your hand if you’ve ever heard about Sothys before. I imagine a lot less hands are raised. And that is not okay. People, you’re missing out! About Sothys Sothys is a French beauty brand that is…

    AD | Tips For Buying The Perfect Bag For Hand Luggage Travelling

    On almost all of my city trips I travel with hand luggage only. Check-in luggage usually means extra costs, more waiting time at the airport, extra weight to carry,… . Just a whole lot of hassle that I can’t be bothered with! I’m currently using a very old Converse Bowling Bag as my carry-on bag. It’s big enough to keep an outfit or three, my camera gear and basic necessities. The back pocket of the bag is useful to store my passport and boarding pass for easy access when going through customs and check-ins. I use the Converse bag mainly…

    Shania Twain Would Be Proud

    From a young age on I’ve loved crime series such as the overly suspenseful CSI Miami and the quintessential British show Midsomer Murders. On Netflix, I devoured the first two seasons of How To Get Away With Murder (which may or may not have had something to do with Jack Falahee) and watched pretty much all crime documentaries within a few weeks after signing up. I know, I’m weird. Since I’m still waiting for Netflix to release S3 of HTGAWM I was in need of a new show to kill time with (ha!) and I started watching The Fall. As…
