Get A Travel Wallet – Travel Tip

Get A Travel Wallet – Travel Tip

I’ve been traveling internationally for a few years now and I’ve gone back and forth on the travel wallet train. My parents got me one when I went to Germany the first time, and while I liked it, I was a bit too lazy to move all of my stuff into every time I traveled. The Verlobter, on the other hand, worships at the Church of the Travel Wallet and tries to convert everyone he knows who is planning an…

Weird German Things #9 – Tchibo

Weird German Things #9 – Tchibo

Have you ever been standing line at your cafe to pick up some coffee and though, hey, I really need some new underwear, but I have no time to go to another store? You haven’t? Well I haven’t either, but if I had, I would have been lucky that Tchibo exists.

Clearly this lapse must be fixed, so here is what I saw, all adorned with red, white, and blue packaging and pictures of Lady Liberty. How can you get more American than that? I’m not sure what “Amerikanos” actually are, they look like chicken tenders to me. I’m also not sure how many Americans would eat chicken tenders with curry…

Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil – My Multiples

Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil – My Multiples

Like with the Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows, I also have several of the Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil. These can be found both in the US and in Germany in shops where Essence is sold, which is pretty much anywhere you can find makeup in Germany, but I think only Ulta in the US (let me know if you can find it elsewhere!). According to their website, only three of the six colors I have are available in the US! Hot…
