Vanille Fatale and Fucking Fabulous: Vanillin vs Coumarin

It just so happened (I do not know whether it was intentional or accidental) that two recent fragrances from the Private Blend line by Tom Ford are devoted to two of perfumery's chief ingredients that are responsible for the emergence of perfumery the way we know it today; those two forever changed our perception of fragrances and based on each, an entire trend, a huge branch of perfumery was...

Dinner for One: Wie es sich anfühlt, in deinen 30ern verwitwet zu sein

Die Nächte sind am schlimmsten. Den meisten Eltern sind sie als „Geisterstunde“ bekannt: jene scheinbar nie endenden Minuten zwischen Abendessen und Schlafenszeit, während denen sich ihre Engelchen in Monster verwandeln und zu kleinen, verstörten Diktator:innen mutieren. Für mich beginnt die Anspannung aber bereits viel früher. Um etwa 16 Uhr fange ich an, das Abendessen zu planen und nichts ist so entmutigend, wie jede Mahlzeit allein zu sich nehmen zu müssen – glaub’ mir. Klar, mein S...

Sollte ich vor oder nach dem Morgen-Workout frühstücken – und was?

Unabhängig davon, ob du dich nun selbst eher als Morgenmensch oder -muffel bezeichnen würdest, dürfte dich eins nicht überraschen: Ein Workout am frühen Morgen ist gesund und hilft nicht nur beim Stressabbau, sondern hebt auch noch deine Stimmung, lässt dich im Laufe des Tages eher einen kühlen Kopf bewahren und dich abends besser einschlafen. Bonus: Wenn du dein Workout gleich morgens erledigst, kannst du den restlichen Tag guten Gewissens auf dem Sofa verbringen. (Theoretisch jedenfalls.)...

My Journey to Healing Counter-Dependency (Radical Self-Reliance)

I lied when I said “I’m fine. I don’t need anyone”. Counter-dependency is exaggerated independence stemming from a fear of depending on other people and an inability to trust others. I am a recovering counter-dependent. On my healing journey, I discovered that I adopted excessively avoidant behaviors as a result of being physically and emotionally abandoned by toxic parents. As a survival strategy I used to “numb out” and stop feeling anything, so I would never experience that pain again....

A philosophical approach to routines can illuminate who we really are

There are hundreds of things we do – repeatedly, routinely – every day. We wake up, check our phones, eat our meals, brush our teeth, do our jobs, satisfy our addictions. In recent years, such habitual actions have become an arena for self-improvement: bookshelves are saturated with bestsellers about 'life hacks', 'life design' and how to 'gamify' our long-term projects, promising everything from enhanced productivity to a healthier diet and huge fortunes. These guides vary in scientific accurac...

7 Financial Reasons Why You Should Live in a Tiny House

The American Dream has always been based on the idea of homeownership and that bigger is better. If you need confirmation of this fact, then look no further than last year’s statistics that show how the average American home is 2,400 square feet. It averaged 2,000 during the housing boom years in the early 2000s and even less if you go back in history. But even though average home sizes are increasing, there’s a small but growing trend in the opposite direction: tiny houses. Documentaries on ti...

The Easiest Valentine's Day Manicure

Ever since the global pandemic hit about a year ago, I haven’t been going into the nail salon every two weeks as I have for years. It pains me that I am not able to support one of my favorite local businesses, but I just don’t feel safe sharing polishes and other manicure tools at the moment. While I have found joy in doing my own nails, it does take a long time to create the perfect polished manicure; I’m no pro. I recently discovered all that is Color Street nail polish strips. Using strips (a...
