Gestern hab ich eine Kollaboration mit Seidenwald veröffentlicht, nämlich hab ich eine Free Sample Kampagne für deren Kissenbezüge auf Instagram gemacht.Continue reading “Seidenkissen: Mit Seide zu schöner Haut und glattem Haar”
Watch what I had to post this week as an Instagram Influencer.
As I am talking about my collaborations with brands, I have to disclose this post as an ADVERTISEMENT.
The views and opinions expressed are my own. The products were received as free samples.
I wish you all a happy new year! May this year be even better than the previous!
Today I wanted to introduce myself to you. Once you realize that you and only you can choose what you are going to post on social media and that only you can control what kind of a person people are going to see on your social media and blog channels – it’s a mind-blowing realization. (Visit me on my Instagram account sabixsm) I know this sounds funny but I realized that the things I post actually represent a totally different person. That’s why I wanted to tell you a little bit more about myself .
Did you know that being a happy optimistic person can be a blessing but also a curse? Let me tell you more…
So today, I’ll unravel my mind to you and present to you one fact about me (for starters).
I bet you didn’t know that I’m actually the same type of person as the “Sunny Day” girl from season 8 “Scrubs”. I literally laugh and smile all the time, when I’m happy, when I’m nervous, when I meet new people even when I’m scared, I’ve got that nervous cracking laugh. Even writing this down makes me smile because now I realize what kind of a freak I am.
And the saddest part of it all is that laughing was very much a problem a lot of the times. In school, people told me I had to be high to laugh that much – which also, made me laugh more.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Later on, meeting parents of my former boyfriends was really weird. One time, I was so joyful and happy – I just thought everything worked out fine, although they were analyzing me the whole time which made me a bit nervous (which, of course, made me chuckle) – according to my former boyfriend, the only thing they said about me was “she sure laughs a lot”. But not in an approving way.
Stuff like that happened really often as people would act more serious around me like they were trying to say “get your shit together”.
But although all of that happened, they didn’t get me down. I don’t care, I’m an optimistic, kind and helpful person, that’s just who I am. And there were many times when laughing and smiling was the right thing to do.
I’ll never forget one friend of mine saying: “Sabina, you always laugh at my jokes, around you I almost feel like I’m an interesting person.”. He told me that I actually help him build up his confidence. And that’s how he has built up mine.
It’s me again and this time I’m introducing to you an Influencer Edition Video! 🙂
I got invited to the Lush Influencer Showroom where I was introduced to the new Christmas Edition Bath Bombs, Lipsticks and wonderful Perfumes.
I’ve talked to a lot of people on Instagram about Lush products and the reflections on the brand are divided into positive and negative!
What do you think? Please share your opinion in the comments below and follow me on YouTube and Instagram for more!
The brand advertises itself as vegan/vegetarian, freshly made cosmetics with natural ingredients. I would say that the ingredients are MOSTLY natural but they do consist of fillers and preservatives. Also, I do advise girls to be careful with the bath bombs, since a lot of people told me that they can mess up the pH values down there. But I think that this happens with any bath cosmetic product, shower gels etc. if not used properly.
PRODUCTION IN CROATIA
A really cute thing I’ve found out during the visit to the Lush Christmas Editon Introduction is that the production for Lush Austria is held in Samobor, Croatia – a very cute small Croatian city near Zagreb – which means that they really rely on cruelty-free practices since they use honey, yogurt and eggs from farm animals that live freely and happily in Croatia’s farms “We’ve been fighting against animal testing for more than 30 years because we don’t believe in cruelty to animals: not for food, not for clothing and definitely not for cosmetics.”
On the other hand, Croatian labor is cheaper so its a win-win for them. 😀
They produce cosmetics without plastic packaging! You can choose between two options for lipsticks: the lipstick in plastic sleeves – they recycle their own products and reuse the plastic for the lipstick sleeves, also you can buy the naked lipstick refill – a refill for used up MAC lipstick sleeves. Also the CINDER Shower Gel seen in the video above is one of the NAKED products.
Once again, there’s a corporate decision behind everything and not having plastic packaging also means cheaper production (but no lower prices?!) – still, I’m fine with that, as long as they keep on recycling and reducing plastic packaging – let’s help mother earth!
THE PRODUCTS SMELL AMAZING!
Let’s be honest, the products really smell amazing! And some of the favourites were turned into perfumes and perfume oils! How cool is that?
I’ve received a sample from the Calacas Spray Perfume which you can also see in the video above. It has a wonderful sweet lemon scent, but I do not recommend it for everybody since my boyfriend says that I smell like a freshly washed bathroom.
THE CHRISTMAS EDITION
Santa Bomb Bomb is the bath bomb I received as a sample ans it smells amazing! It consists of two bombs, one for the body and the other is the head – vanilla, cocoa and bergamot oil. He’s sitting on my desk and my whole room smells like heaven because of him. Thanks Santa!
Other Christmas edition products – Snow Fairy Sparkle Jar (NAKED Sparkle Oil!! The pink star is made of cocoa butter and filled with sparkling powder!! How cool is that? But watch out – mine melted in my bag the way home and the powder spilled out 😦 That sucks.
Snowman Bomb Bomb, Princess Bomb Bomb and many others which you can also see in the video above!

ADVERTISEMENT – I was invited to the Lush Austria Influencer Showroom as an Instagram Influencer and received free product samples from Lush Austria.
The opinions are my own.
Who hasn’t seen these beautiful designs on Instagram yet? I know I have, that’s why I was so happy when I got my free sample from Ideal of Sweden!
Currently, there’s a lot of online shops and phone case brands out there, but Ideal of Sweden is definitely the number one brand for phone cases and accessories. I was so astonished when my sample arrived. This beautiful navy marble coloured plastic case with the golden colored Ideal of Sweden plate is special because of it’s high quality plastic, beautiful design and the whole story around it. Have you seen their collaborations with famous Instagramers? They are creating wonderful new designs for phone cases, chargers, wallet cases, accessories etc.
The trendy phone cases, wallet cases and other accessories from Ideal Sweden are just irresistibly beautiful, that’s why I wanted to share with you the discount code SANTA50 with 50 % discount off your purchase (which I got with the delivered phone case).
It is valid until December 31
This is not a paid advertisement. I got the phone case as a free PR sample. The expressed opinions are my own.
Hello babes, it’s me again.
A few months ago, I got a couple of products from Hairfinity. The brand promises sugar, spice & everything nice, but does it actually work? Read about it in this article.
I’ve got a few free products from Hairfinity during their Instagram Campaigns – the CLEANSE AND CONDITION KIT and the HAIRFINITY Healthy Hair Vitamins
and I wanted to share my opinion on those products, with you. Like any product, there are some pros and cons to it, so let me start with the pros:Continue reading “Hairfinity, for longer hair. Sounds great, but is it?”
Ich musste sehr lange darüber nachdenken ob ich das Video veröffentliche oder nicht. Wie ihr sehen könnt hat der Stress wegen der Masterarbeit auch folgen auf meinem Gesicht hinterlassen. Das witzigste daran ist, dass das nicht viele Pickel und etc. sind, sondern Narben von den vorigen Tagen.
Also, jetzt bin ich hier, auf Instagram bloßgestellt und hoffe, dass ihr hiermit auch was neues dazu lernt.
Keiner ist perfekt.
Jeder hat mit etwas zu kämpfen. Und dass macht uns menschlich. Macht eure Schwächen zu Stärken.
Wenn deine Haut auch anfällig für Akne ist, ich will, dass du weißt, dass das gar nicht schlimm ist. Meine ist auch wie verrückt obwohl ich schon längst nicht mehr ein Teenager bin.
Wir müssen unserer Haut besondere Pflege anbieten. Morgens und abends das Gesicht mit milden Mitteln waschen. Hydrolate sind wirklich empfehlenswert ob Lavendel wegen der beruhigenden, erfrischenden und reinigenden Wirkung oder Teebaum wegen der antibakteriellen, klärenden und zellerneuernden Wirkung.
Ich hab sehr viel darüber nachgelesen und erfahren dass wir unsere Haut mit Öl versorgen müssen um die Talgproduktion zu minimieren. Das BIO Hagebuttenöl von @malincahimbeerchen ist nicht komedogen, was sehr wichtig für unreine Haut ist.
Und letztens, die Haut einmal wöchentlich mit Masken reinigen, in dem Video würde @malincahimbeerchen Maske aus Tonerde benutzt.
Alle Produkte hab ich selbst getestet und kann sie völlig empfehlen, denn seitdem ich sie benutze, kommt es zu Ausbrüchen wie diesen die Narben hinterlassen haben, nicht mehr.
Anzeige wegen PR samples
I’ve neglected my teeth so it was about time to visit the dentist. This was an unpaid promotion, in which I got the oral hygiene treatment (look it up in the video) and in the next video, I’ll be posting about the bleaching treatment I got a couple of weeks later.
Afterwards, I had the opportunity to visit the Museum of Illusions in Vienna and it was so much fun! I got free tickets thanks to this influencer collaborations app called Freachly. If you want, I’ll gladly write a list of apps and platforms for influencer campaigns, so you can look them up and maybe join the campaigns too.
That’s why I am happy to invite you to watch my first VLOG ❤
And I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed filming it.
All of the opinions expressed are my own.
I know the title seems very funny, but I couldn’t help it. The name “Luna Play” doesn’t exactly remind you of cleansing brushes, right?Continue reading “Foreo Luna Play – brush or sex toy?”
Valentine’s day has already passed (thank god haha :D) but that doesn’t mean you can’t surprise your loved ones with these cute gift ideas!
Create your own 3D pop-up card and let me lead you step by step through three types of designs I’ve prepared for you!
First I’ll show you the three types, then we’ll decorate and finish them so you can see my end results at the end 😀

… I don’t like to beat about the bush. My posts are very short and focused, as everything in the millennial kids world is. Our focus span is just too short and we have to manage as much as possible in as little time as possible. It’s a constant race against time, we race through the day in order to finish everything while the sun is still shinning (and before the beer gathering at the pub starts), we race through the week in order to get that FRIYAY feel, we race through the year to finally get that instasummer goalz and show off our BIKINI BODY.
As one of those racers, I have to say, it’s not that bad to seize the day as much as possible. We didn’t hype for nothing phrases as:
Seize the day!
Live every day as if it was your last!
At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.
But is this level of motivation and persistence pressure really healthy? I mean, sometimes I feel useless because I feel like I’m racing against so much more successful people around me. That’s why I’m investing so much of my life into studying and social media and sometimes it just feels like I’m wasting my life, as if I should’ve done so much more by now.
We constantly scroll through our main feeds in search for the perfect lives, looking at perfect people who are even younger and more successful than we are and we wonder… We wonder why! What’s wrong with us? Why aren’t we that successful? Are we ever going to be sucesful? Am I doing something wrong? Am I ever going to be able to afford anything seen on those luxury travel seaside photos?
You so persistent and motivated, you just have to get that energy flowing!
You start working out before work, you dress for the job you want not the one you have, then you give your best at work, because sooner or later it will be your time to shine, someone will notice, you’re so sure of it! Then you use your free time for your individual goals in life, cause you want to be that Instagram Influencer one-o-one. And since you want to have it all, beauty, success and a rich social life, you continue into the night!
And after some time your questions start to sound like this: will I ever be able to afford myself some peaceful me-time?
With this tempo on the rise and everything changing as quick as the mobile technology industry, I would dare to say: no.
Then you realize you can’t function as a robot, you are seeking constant productivity and you are not able to achieve it. That’s when you discover yoga, meditation, feng shui, and so much other exotic interesting relaxation, peacefulness, and balance methods but you realize you’ve overbooked yourself with so much stuff and you just don’t have the guts to stop it now that you’ve started to smell the flowers.
The again, maybe this kind of behaviour isn’t actually a millenial thing. People always strived to success and being able to have a purpose on earth and leave a mark.
Will I be pretty? Will I be rich? – even Doris Day sang it over 60 years ago with a spark in her eye.
Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will be
Face masks have recently become a real must have. There’s a countless number of all kinds of face masks on the market, but do they really give what they promise?
Let’s find out..
The masks on the picture are all masks that I’ve managed to collect during occasional unintended beauty shop visits this summer. I’ve used a lot of others too, but I will save those comments for later posts.
My mission will be to try each and every one of them, regardless of their price or purpose, for I will try to find the best one for hydration, wrinkles, plumping effect or acne prone skin.
Every time I try a new one, I will publish a new post and the links will be posted right here! 🙂
As an Instagram micro influencer, you get collaboration offers daily. You have to decide which one fits your style and once you’ve said yes – the fun starts!
The photo below shows me doing a yoga headstand (casually haha) with some comfy winter socks, a matching red oversized sweater and a hip tattoo! A lot of people were actually shocked to see me having a tattoo – don’t worry, you didn’t miss on me doing that step in life 😀
It’s just a temporary tattoo from Mrs. Nap Deal
Visit their website for a lot of cool festival and arm tattoo offers!
My tattoo is an arm tattoo called Toxic Women – but that didn’t stop me to fulfill my long hidden hip tattoo wish!
If you want to find out more about this tattoo and how satisfying the price and the quality are, visit my newest YouTube Video.

The Vienna Fashion Week 2018 was held in September right at the location of Vienna’s Museums Quartier. I was, obviously, pretty amazed by the show since it was
very amusing, creative and I must say, quite unexpected.
Thanks to the influencer platform Influence.vision and to the MQ Vienna Fashion Week organisation, me and my friend Marija were VIP guests that day!
You can watch the video below and scroll down for more photos!
Stop imagining and start learning! This is how my visit to the Lush Influencer Showroom looked like 🙂
