SUBCUTANE - AGELESS Hydro Lipid Emulsion

Hi my lovely readers:)!,

I've got last week a great surprise by Subcutane - an Ageless Hydro Lipid Emulsion/Serum from the AGELESS Organic Cosmetic range!:) Oh I was soooo happy about this little "bottle of healthy energy and power"!:)

 (Photo Credit: natur kosmetik shop - I Don't own this pic'!)

This little magical treatment contains high quality oils like: jojoba, sunflower, buckthorn oil, apricot oil, pineapple extracts and pomegranate extracts!

This Hydro Lipid Emulsion/Serum will give your facial skin (your decollete & head skin too:)!) the needed moisture and will fight against the moisture loss! It supports the natural skin character, gives the needed elasticity and proctects from environmental influences & dryness.

The 2 in 1 formula made from highquality natural oils and moisturizers, vitamines, natural fruit extracts and anti-oxidantes will protect your skin and fight against the skin aging too!

But the ingrediences aren't only to avoid dryness or skin aging - they also made your facial skin more soft and create a wonderful fresh and healthy looking skin tone!



How you should apply the Subcutane - Ageless Hydro Lipid Emulsion:

Shake it well, give a small pump/"shhh" ( I would say more a shhh as it's not a cream so you don't get a small hazelnut size something on your hand just a oil drop or lake if you're using more than needed:)) on your palm of hand. Comminute and apply it on your facial skin/face, neck and decollete. 

You can use this emulsion/serum as a further beauty treatment JUST for a higher/intensive moisturizing routine or for a further beauty treatment including your normal daily facial care routine!

The product is also really fabulous as it fights again animal ingredients and it's up to the strict guide lines of the high controled natural cosmetics referred to BDIH!

Ingredients (INCI):

Aqua/Water, Glycine Soja/Soybean Oil, Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis/Jojoba Seed Oil, Tricaprylin, Glycerin, Prunus Armenica/Apricot Kernel Oil, Sodium PCA, Sorbitol, Parfum/Essential Oils, Ananas Sativus/Pineapple Fruit Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Punica Granatum Seed Extract, Helinathus Annuus/Sunflower Seed Oil, Sodium Lactate, Lactic Acid, Tocopherol, Beta Carotene.*

*made from controlled organic cultivation farming

Country of Origin:

Austria

The Price:

Subcutane - Ageless Hydro Lipid Emulsion/Serum - 30ml - 32,00€

My opinion about this facial-/neck-/decollete skin care treatment:

The scent is really natural, NOT too strong, fruity and it really smell a bit like carrots (It's just my opinion - as it also contains Beta Carotene!:)) but I would prefer that it would smell a bit more like pineapples (as I looove this fruit - it's one of my fav' fruits:)) but it has a lovely oily (NOT too oily) consistency and I'm enjoying to wear it during the warm sunny days/summer days - and I think that it's the perfect facial serum/emulsion after you've enjoyed a day at the beach  - as a night regenerator too!:)

I also prefer that it's a natural/organic product and that it includes most of all natural extracts & oils. It's great that it contains Beta Carotene - as this is great for you all guys, to avoid bad sunburns (which can happen even if you've a sunscreen applied on your whole face!). 

The price is a high-end price, BUT as it's natural/organic, a great packaging and a lovely little facial treatment/emuslion - it's really worth to use it sometimes. I wouldn't use it each day (not just for the price - it's now one of my luxury treatments:) - but also for the rich formula and as I've normal/t-zone skin and not really often a dry skin it's perfect to use it just twice or three times/days per week!).

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

For more information - please visit Subcutane's website. It's really interesting to read their two articles about skin protection/real protected beauty too:

Pic's of the last "week" & ETC.:)

Hi guys:),

I've browsed through soooo many different kind of blogs (beauty-/lifestyle-/etc. blogs) and found out, that Instagram is a HUGE thing in the blogger- & whole www-world:)! So I though, that I could make a collage about my last "WEEK-things" (which are for the whole month April! - it's quiet a bit better and unusual to make a Monthly Pic' collage as a weekly one:)) - as I've not an Instagram - as I've just an IPad, IPod & NO IPhone yet:( so here we go with my first "DIY-Instagram" collage:):

My lovely purple moccasin from Spain:), "Oh that's me!":) - Retro influenced makeup look, my natural lip color smile:), "YUUUUMY Galia melon" one of my fav' one!:), Oh some lovely N.Y.R. samples, just another YUMMMMY watermelon:), "Oh my "heels"!:)" the N.Y.R. Rehydrating Rose Facial Polish smells sooo good and it's sooo great to my skin - makes it softer too!:), 1st glass of fresh SanPellegrino Aranciata sparklin' limo water!:), freshly oven-baked thymian sweet potatoes

I've also tried to photograph my own two hands (left hand is left and the right one is right:)) and found out that each hand look really different - it's typical that a "lefty" like I'm work the whole life a bit more than with the right hand & so it looks a bit more "tired/exercised":

(The pic'/phrase in the middle DOESN'T belong to myself - it's from google/pinterest, the other two belong to me!)

You see that it's interesting that both hands are really differtn (O.K. we know, that each half of you/your body isn't/didn't look 100% the same BUT it's funny to see it on the pic':))

What I've watched/read or liked during April 2013:

 
(Marilyn by Andre De Dienes, Grease 2/Lucky One - Movies/DVD's, Cath Kidston paper tissues, Yves Rocher Monoi de Tahiti Dry Body Oil, my beloved Tangle Teezer, City of Style by Melissa Magsaysay)


I've tried out a new Anti-Cellulite body oil from Weleda too:) - which I'm absolutely satisfied with! as it smells fresh and natural and I just enjoy to apply it on my legs:)!


What Weleda says about their awesome beauty oil:


Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil is a unique combination of plant extracts and natural plant oils which visibly improve the skin's texture and smoothness by stimulating the body’s own regulating and regenerating processes. Natural essential oils support the toning effects of the other plant extracts, leaving the skin feeling and looking firm and supple whilst reducing the appearance of cellulite.

While using Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil twice daily over 28 days in combination with Weleda Birch Juice, the testers' skin was on average noticeably 35% firmer and skin elasticity improved by 20%.

Visible improvement of skin structure was recorded in 85% of cases, and testers' skin showed a healthy 20-25% increase in blood circulation/ microcirculation.

An earlier focus group also reported an encouraging measurable loss in thigh circumference when using Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil - an average of 3.95cm. 

What I've been thinking and seeing after using it daily for almost two weeks: 

I feel that my skin is more firmed and soft too - where I'm applying it (and I just used it on the parts where I think I could get more "Orange"/Cellulite points:)) Whether it's helping me to loss in measure I can't say, as I've not really a problematic skin on my whole body (just on my hands - where I've a kind of ekzem BUT just on my fingers:() and I also have a quiet thin figure so yep:)

I would definitely try it out again and use it for a while again - as I looove natural cosmetics and this one is another sparkle in my natural cosmetic collection:)!

Oh and I've tried out their brand new oat shampoo/hair mask:




What's my opinion about this new Oat hair care range by Weleda:

I pretty much enjoy using the Weleda Oat Regeneration Hair Mask/Treatment, which you apply on your fresh washed or wet hair and you just make a massage with a hazelnut size of this treatment in your hair and leave it for 5-10 minutes in it! You can also use it twice per week - which is fabulous for summer or during hot periods - as I've not really dry or damaged hair (this Oat range is made for such hair normally:)) I'm using it after taking a bath on a sunny day now or just if it's really hot and I'm afraid of getting a bit dryiness in it:)

The scent is lovely light and the texture is creamy with a light/pastell yellow shade. 

The shampoo has pretty much the same scent BUT a fluid/gel texture which has also a light/pastell yellow shade/undertone. It cleanses my hair good (as other shampoos I'm using too:)) but I wouldn't say, that my hair have a better/more moisturizing/healthier texture/look after I've been using it - so it's a nice and quality shampoo BUT not really a re-purchase for myself! But for dry hair it's really worth to try it out!:)

The Oat hair mask/treatment will stay my fav' and I'll definitely repurchase it after I'll use it up soon!:)

Now let me show you my fav' scene from one of my fav' movies "Arthur" with Rusell Brand:


And my fav' song of the last week was "Top Of The World" by Imagine Dragons:


I hope you've enjoyed my non-traditional kind of blogpost!:)

My last 4 days in FACES:)

Hi guys:),

I've done soooo many pic's and collected sooo many ideas for my further blogposts/youtube vid's and create my first "TheBeachCrush" vid' too!:) (this vid' will be available on my channel in few days!).

And I've tried out to create more "vintage touched" and individual lovely makeup look for myself:

1. Prima Ballerina (a classic/nude/sparkle eye makeup look):


For that sparkelicious and glamour look - you'll just need:

A great foundation or powder makeup in your own shade (which suits perfectly your skin tone - that's what I would like to say:)), a fix powder (if you're applying a fluid makeup!:)), a great black/dark eyeliner (create a slight cateye - BABE:)), a powder rose/pink shimmer lipstick/lipgloss (I'm using ONLY lipstick for this look BUT you can choose between lipsticks/balms/glosses - it's your choice what you would like to wear!:)), a peach blush and VOILA - You can win each "Best looking Swan Lake Prima Ballerina" Contest - Even if such a contest exist:)

2. Rocket Babe (a neon/modern "rock-a-billy" babe makeup look):


For this new/re-launched Rocket Babe look you'll need:

a foundation (I'm using a light shaded - like: Ivory/Light, Porcelain), a powder - which suits perfectly with the foundation you are using!, a great black or dark brown fluid eyeliner (gel will suit perfectly too:)!), a great neon pink/pink lipstick (lipliner CAN be used BUT MUST NOT!- if the lipstick is great in quality - doesn't run out into your  lip "wrinkles":)), a great pink/light blush - maybe with sparkles, which looks fantastical and great too! And you're ready for the next biker-/50's-/Vintage-/diner party! - Rock It! Rocket Babe!:)

3. Pink Bunny (a classic "pinkish"/glamour makeup look):


I've used:

a light/ivory foundation, some powder in Translucent (but you can use any other shade - it's important that it suits your own skin tone perfectly!:)), some pink lipstick (L'Oreal Caresse!), some black cream eyeliner, and 2-3 different nude/brown powder or cream eyeshades! - You're a great pink bunny too:)!

4. Natural Girl (a non-makeup makeup look):


For this look (which I've been wearing in my first "TheBeachCrush" vid'!:)) I've applied just:

a foundation in ivory/light, brown eyeliner pencil (hazelbrown), a light fluid eyeliner-line in a black shade, some lipbalm in Rose, a blush in peach/coral tone. Voila! - Your own "Natural Girl" look is created!:)


Which makeup look you would prefer at most? - Did you've tried out any kind of such makeup's in the past or did you would like to try it out, after you've read my post?

I'll definitely check out and read all of your comments/posts after you've made such a makeup look and wish you all a great start into a brand new week!:)

L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks

Hi lovely readers!:),

I've been today with my mum at the nearest shopping centre and in other cool places & I've bought two L'Oreal Caresse lipsticks too - which I'll show you now a bit closer:):


The L'Oreal Caresse lipsticks are available in 16 shades (Germany, Austria), 11 shades (UK + 4 shades of the new/latest L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Coeur De Perle):

(Photo Credit: www.loreal-paris.es  - I Don't Own this picture/photo!)

The 16 shades are:

01 Fashionista Pink
02 Innocent Pink
03 Lovely Rose
04 Rose Mademoiselle
07 Cheeky Magenta
101 Tempting Lilac
201 Flirty Violet
202 Impulsive Fuchsia
203 Rock'n Mauve
102 Mauve Cherie
301 Dating Coral
401 Rebel Red
403 Hypnotic Red
501 Nude Ingenue
503 Seductive Beige
602 Irresistible Expresso


Here you can watch the spot (from 2012) about L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks:



I've bought as mentioned above at my first pic's about these lovely L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks the shades:


02 Innocent Pink
(a soft, light shimmery BUT not tooooooo much shimmery lipstick, which will suit you perfect even if you've a light skin tone or a sun-touched one and will bring your mouth to glow!:) - It's a kind like Estee Lauders Pink Sand lipstick - which is one of my fav' all year round!)


07 Cheeky Magenta
A middle dark matt pink tone - it's without shimmer (which I prefer if I'm wearing darker shades/lip colors!) and it's not tooo dark "pinkish" - what I will say - this color is easy to apply, without looking cheap - if you know, what I mean?!:)

So here you can see how the both Rouge Caresse Lipsticks look like on my own lips:



I'll let you know, how long they stays (in REAL!:)) on your lips and to which makeup's they suits perfect soon!:)

For more informations about the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks please visit your own country website of L'Oreal: AT, GE, UK, ES, FR, USA, CH, NL

Hope you've enjoyed my "L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick" Review and wish you all a great sunny day in late-May:)

NEAL'S YARD REMEDIES

Hi guys:),

some days ago, I've though to write about the fantastic and awesome body-/facial care brand Neal's Yard Remedies, BUT as I've not got any samples or products to show you I was really happy about the little surprise by N.Y.R.!:) (Oh thank's again:)!)


What I've got as a sample version to review here on my "blogging"-little corner (blog):):

NYR Rehydrating Rose Daily Moisture (Nurtures and replenishes Normal Skin)
NYR Rehydrating Rose Facial Polish (Exfoliates and enriches Normal Skin)
NYR White Tea Toning Eye Gel (For All Skin Types)
NYR Wild Rose Beauty Balm (Nurtures and revitalises All Skin Types)
NYR Purifying Palmarosa Mattifier (For Oily & Combination Skin Types)
NYR White Tea Enriching Facial Mask (Deeply nurtures Dry and Sensitive Skin Types)
NYR Frankincense Hydrating Cream (Keeps All Skin Types soft and fresh)
NYR Wild Rose Hand Cream (Deeply Nourishes and balances)
NYR Chamomile Cleanser (Gently Shootes and cleanses Normal Skin Types)

What's behind this 100% natural & lovely designed/packaged brand?:

(Photo Credits: Pinterest, Neal's Yard - I don't own each of them!)

Since 1981 (where N.Y.R. was born:)) they try to create wonderful balms, creams and other body/facial care stuff without using chemical/synthetic ingrediences and instead of them they use and create natural/herb-based remedies for the whole body care! To be a happy and healthy consumer of their products means a lot to N.Y.R.! so I was interested to try out different product-sample before buying some full-size one:) They are promoting and supporting organic farming and ONLY use certified organic ingrediences in their products! That's why the bottle design  - especially the shade is deep dark blue - to keep the products longer fresh (as the colour keeps the light out) without/instead using chemical and other bad stuff!

They don't test on animals, they support many campaigns like (No More Breast Cancer, Friends of the earth, Samaritans etc.), they keeps their own recipes/amounts secret BUT explain and say what's inside like: which herbs, fruits etc. are used for the cream. N.Y.R. has also earned a lot of awards since 2009 includes: Beauty Insiders Choice 2009/2012/2013, Sublime Awards 2013, International Green Awards 2011, The Green Beauty Bible Awards 2009

What's my opinion about the packaging/quality/effect etc.:

I love the design of the full-size deep blue glass bottles BUT also the little cute samples, which I've got this week via our postman:) Oh and the fresh herbal/"garden" scent of each product, you really think that's fresh from the next organic/natural market around the corner in Provence, Cornwall or elsewhere:)! And I really enjoyed to try them out (I've not tried each of them until now BUT will do so!:)) - especially the Chamomile Cleanser was soo smooth and leave a wonderful clean and a bit re-freshed feeling on my facial skin! Your skin will definitely look more brighter and healthy after you've apply/used some N.Y.R. products for I would say maybe 2-3 days - but as I've just samples , I will use now again some of my old products too:)

The Wild Rose hand cream smells fantastically like fresh cut roses and really moisturizes well, but I wouldn't say, that's the best one, as L'Occitane or Nivea makes great hand creams too!:)

I've also tried out the Rehydrating Rose Facial Polish for normal skin types, and this is one of my fav' N.Y.R. products now!:) (the Chamomile Cleanser is the second fav' one!:)) as it has little rose seed powder in it and that stuff is JUST BRILLIANT to let your facial skin turn smooth and revitalized again!

So have you ever tried out any of their/Neal's Yard Remedies body-/facial- or hair care products? Let me know what's your fav' one and I'll be happy about some lovely comments from you!

Bye & have a great shinny sunday!

I've WON the Labello StiFANdium!:)

Hi guys:),

today I would like to write you some lines about my latest win (Oh I'm proud to be one of the winners!:)) - the Labello lipbalm StiFANdium, which allows me as a blogger/Labello lover:) to write on their own website some sweet lines about their balms in the new & first Labello magazine, how fantastic  - isn't it?!:)

Here you can see the huge package of (ALL) Labello lip balms/treatments, you can usually buy at your local supermarket or drugstore - YEPE:)!


The first (lip-) balm I've tried out was the Labello Lipbalm "Rose" - which I've smell when I was a little girl/child really often, as my sis' has used it often between that time:) And I've also eaten one of them (at the age of 1 and half  - it's strange BUT some kids eat more dramatic/ugly things - so the Labello wasn't the worst taste:))




I could only remember the strong lovely rose scent of this balm, so I was happy to try it out again (without buying it - as I've a lot other balms right now at my home place:)) and I must say, that the consistence has changed a bit since the 90's (I normally use other Labello balms - only the rose one I've not used for such a long time!) and the scent is lighter/not sooo strong and lovely as in the past, but it really makes your lips looking more healthy&pinkish and that's what I'm really looking for to wear a lipbalm each day:)!


I just love the brand since many years:) As it's not tooo high-pricy and not really a bad quality! And I'll show you some of the other Labello lip balms soon - if you would like to!:)

Hope you've enjoyed this post about my "Labello StiFANdium" news & see you soon!:)

Fav' Songs/Albums - MAY 2013

Hi guys,

I though that I've not really much wrote the last weeks/days/seconds & minutes:) about the most topic/main topic in my life - music.

So I would say, that I'll show you my fav' albums/songs of each one, which really climb up my mood and I'm feeling better to hear them!:)

(Photo Credits:Pinterest, Alicia Keys, Michael Buble, Carrie Underwood, Agneta Fältskog, Auryn, Rod Stewart, Eros Ramazzotti - I don't own each of them!)

1. Carrie Underwood:

"Blown Away" Album, and especially "Who Are You" have reached my heart sooooooo fast - I love that song:)!



2. Alicia Keys:

"Girl On Fire" Album, "Fire We Make" a perfect love/soul song, which isn't just for women for boys too:)!:



3. Michael Buble:

"To Be Loved" Album, I just felt in love with his voice long long long long time ago:) - he's one of the last kind of "good-oldtime" classic male voices, I really enjoy listening his voice/songs BUT "To Love Somebody" (which is original one of the 1st songs by the Bee-Gees) is a great re-launch of a good classic song:):


4. Auryn:

"Endless Road 7058" was the first album (2012) of the young boy-band Auryn (from the lovely country of Spain:)) and the song "Still" is just perfect for a romantic time together or heartbreak too:):


5. Eros Ramazzotti:


"Cuori agitati" his first ever album (from 1985!) is just perfect for each pre-/summer time!:) The lovely song "Quando l'amore" is my fav' REALLY my fav' on the whole track list!:):


6. Agneta Fältskog:

Her new album called "A - Agneta Fältskog" is full of great light & lovely songs, which I will definitely have on my red lovely IPOD:). The song "I Keep Them On The Floor Beside My Bed" is an awesome song - just check it out!:):



7. Rod Stewart:

I'm not really a fan of his early songs (just some of them are really my taste) BUT the new/latest album is just AMAZING!:) I love his song "Can't Stop Me Now" - as it's not possible to Stop if the right way/place/time came!:): 


I hope you've enjoyed this kind of music post and would be soooo happy about your lovely comments!

Tag | Would You Rather? Beauty Edition

Hi guys:),

as I've read yesterday sooo many lovely blogposts and also the "Would You Rather?" Beauty Edition Tag by Amie of Belle-amie. I thought, as I've found this post really interesting, to use her questions and answer by myself on my blog:)

I've not made such posts in the past, but each start is a good idea/opinion to learn something new, so why not try it out?!:)

Let's turn to the questions and answers of the "Would You Rather?" (Beauty Edition) Tag:

1. Would you rather lose all your mascaras, eye liners, lipsticks and lip glosses or all your palettes and eye shadows?

A.: Oh as I'm not wearing really mascaras and just have one or two (which I'm not wearing as I said:)) I would definitely forgot or lose them everywhere - as I'm not used of them:)

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

A: Oh what a tricky question!:) I've never had really short hair, always long since I was a little girl/child, BUT on the other hand never cut it again, would be unhealthy (your hair gets dry, split etc.) and for longterm your hair would lose the shine and healthness and would be damaged, so hmhhhhh I would rather chop BUT I would cry OHHHHHHHHH my goooooooooood I would cry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

A: Why not both? (I see the questions won't be easier:)) I really enjoy wearing peachy/coral cheeks during spring and summer BUT pink cheeks are sweet too for special occasions like: Valentinesday or a Coachella festival too:)! - For that questions: Coral cheeks:)

4. If you had 1000€ to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

A: Makeup - If I had to choose from one (like in this question) otherwise both things: some clothes and some makeup products:)

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eye liner, or eye liner as lipstick?

A: For summer I would reather try out to wear an awesome vibrant hydrant lipstick as eye liner, 'cause eye liner as lipstick would look not really well on my lips:)

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

A: Sephora - as there are different brands and I'm a fan of trying out new products & brands:)

7. Would you rather only use one eye shadow or one lip colour for the rest of your life?

A: One lipstick/lip colour - as it seems to be easier to find your fav' lip product!

8. Would you rather wear Winter clothes in the Summer, or Summer clothes in the Winter?

A: Summer clothes in the Winter - that's what I'm doing sometimes REALLY!:)

9. Would you rather wear dark nails or bright nails all year round?

A: Bright nail polishes/colors/enamels:) - Makes each time a smile on my face and helps to climb up your mood to feel better!

10. Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?

A: Favourite eye product - 'cause my fav' lip product is sooooo important!:)

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a pony tail or a messy bun?

A: A pony tail - 'cause a messy bun seems to be comfy and easy to make each day BUT the classic chic pony tail is just awesome!:)

12. Would you rather never being able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?

A: Hmh never use lip gloss - I'm not a very lip glossy fan soooo it would be easier!:)

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? Or Sharpie them in everyday?

A: Sharpie them - to have none at all?! THAT WOULD BE TERRIBLE/HORRIBLE AND JUST CATASTROPHICAL!:)

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

A: I would rather live without makeup:) As natural beauty is always the best:)

So that's it:) I hope you've enjoyed my post about the "Would You Rather?" Beauty Edition Tag with the great questions created by Amie. Would be great to know, whether you've made this tag on your blog too or would like to make one? - Please let me know in your comments:)

Wish you all a great week and sunny day!

TV Shows - 90's/Past & Today

Hi guys:),

I've been searching for some good old tv shows/series/soaps on youtube and found some classic 90's, which reminds me on my childhood (if it doesn't sounds strange, BUT I've not watched all day long tv just sometimes:))

In this post, I would like to show you my childhood/90's fav' tv soaps/shows/series, which I've watched with my mum, sis' & brother. I'll show you my fav' tv shows when I was a (young) teenager & my current fav' shows!:)

Let's start with the holly 90's:

Who doesn't watched the daily problems & news from the lovely new blended/patchwork fam' , which lives in a Milwaukee-suburb. "Step by Step" I've NOT forget this tv show and it was probably after Full House my fav' one!:)

Full House - San Francisco in the early 90's, where a widowed father (Danny Tanner) raised up with the help of his friend (Joey Gladstone) and brother-in-law (Jesse Katsopolis) after the death of his wife his three daughters (Donna Jo known as D.J., Stephanie Tanner & the little adorable Michelle Tanner). It's a wonderful story about how three men (later Jesse marry his wife Rebecca Donaldson Katsopolis and has twin-sons Nicholas and Alexander Katsopolis) can raise up a teenage girl and two smaller girls without a further help & they have lots of fun, troubles and action! - My fav' childhood "tv-memory"!:)

Here you can watch the three Tanner sis':


The Cosby Show - an typical upper middle-class African-American family, which lives in Brooklyn Heights (NY), starring by Bill Cosby (Heathcliff/Cliff Huxtable), wife Clair Huxtable, they have 5 children - 4 daughters and 1 son (Sondra, Denise, Theodore, Vanessa & the smallest daughter Rudy Huxtable) A funny and normal family, which claimb up my mood so fast, even if I'm in a bad mood. I just love and enjoy to watch it - also now with my 20 years:)

The Nanny - it's a dream of each child (I think so:)) to have such a cool/young and freaky Nanny, but who also knows if you need help:) - as my mum has raised me & my siblings up alone, I was also by a friendly women/a kind of Nanny from the age of 1/2 until I was 3 years old each day - BUT this Nanny (Fran Fine) is JUST the coolest Nanny on earth!:) - I've laught and smiled sooo many times when I was a kid and watched each episode a great memory too:)!

Blossom - I can't really remember this sitcom BUT the intro stays in my head for such a long time and after I've watched it two days ago again on youtube, I can remember it again:) Blossom Russo, a teenage girl living with her father and two brothers. Blossom's mother having left the family to pursue her own life and career; the show concentrated on the family's attempts to adjust.Blossom's father, Nick, a session musician who was frequently between gigs and tours & her oldest brother Anthony is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict who eventually became a paramedic. Joey the other brother, is a fairly stereotypical, known for the drawn-out delivery of his catchphrase, "Whoa!". It's a kind of teenage sitcom and I can remember to watched it at grandma's home (it was also played in the Czech:)!) and at home I've seen it not really often.

Family Matters- Oh another sitcom/tv show, which I can't hardly remember BUT only one person stays in my mind and this person is no one else as Steven "Steve" Urkle the Winslows' nerdy neighbor, who quickly became REALLY its breakout character and eventually a main character! The Winslows are a middle-class African American family living in Chicago/Illinois. It's really just Steve Urkle who stays in my mind until now!:) - Such a crazy boy, when I was a little girl, I though he's not from this planet when I saw this character at the first time:)

Home Improvement - Taylor Family: father Tim (Tim Allen), mother Jill, their three sons: Brad (oldest), Randy (middle) & Mark (the youngest one). They are living in the suburban of Detroit/Michigan and have a neighbor named Wilson (you can't see his face in any season, I think just one time But normaly just his cap/hat and hands or from the other side!:)) A family with a stereotypical American father - who loves power tools and other car tools:)

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air - the "cult" tv show/serie/soap of the 90's, each 90's child/teeny or person should have watched each episode & know well about the street-smart teenager from West Philadelphia who move in with his aunt and uncle in their wealthy Bel Air mension - where his lifestyle often causes problems and other troubles or clashes with that of his relatives:)

A short line from the whole Wikipedia text about "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air":

"Will Smith was a popular and successful rapper during the late 80's, but 'cause he spent his money uncontrollably and grossly underpaid his income taxes. This almost caused Smith to go bankrupt when, in 1989, he was approached by the television network NBC, who signed him on to a contract and created a sitcom focused on him."

Now move to my teenager fav' TV-shows:

Felicity was one of the tv series/soaps, which I've watched from the age of 9 to almost 13! I know, that maybe not each one of you would find this soap/show interesting BUT I find it brilliant at this age, as I've got the feeling to understand each adult stuff - If you know what I mean:) while I was watching this tv-show. I don't know it just seems to be boring, but after a while I would surely watch it again fully!:)

The series revolves around the fictional college experiences of the title character, Felicity Porter (Keri Russell), as she attends the "University of New York," based on New York University, across the country from her home in Palo Alto, California. It's about school/college, work & love & the real moments in life!:)

The O.C./O.C. California - from the beginning in 2003 (when I was 10 years old - young pre-teeny:)!)  I've fall in love with this tv show - I WAS A HUGE FAN of the whole O.C. world & story!:) I have watched each episode more than 15 times and all 4 Seasons I've mainly watched over 3 or 4 times! I just loved to watched what's with Seth Cohen, Ryan Atwood, Marissa Cooper or Summer Roberts and which problems and fake friends the beautiful world of O.C. contains!:) - I've listen to their O.C. soundtracks and owned one of them too!:) (I think it was the Soundtrack Nr. 1)

Gilmore Girls - I've seen the ficitional town of Stars Hollow in Connecticut with Lorelai Gilmore & Rory Gilmore from 10 to almost 15! - I also join to read the books about the two Gilmore Power Girls:) And always loved to have such a comfy and cozy house to one day:) Even if they where not a glamorous/luxury girls but keep their money for the needed things, Lorelai creates the best world for her daughter Rory, which makes me always smile - who women could be strong in such situations!:) No, what I would say, is that the two Gilmore's where sooo creativity, but we don't need to forget, that she gets help from their grandparents too, which have enough of all:)

Ugly Betty - as a teenager with little self-consciousness I've enjoyed to watch this soap at the age of 13-15 too!:) Betty is a crazy, powerful and also a bit without self-consciousness at the beginning of the tv-show. But she grow in her mind and become stronger in the further seasons. A great show for all young girls to know, each one has their own strengthness and beauty inside and outside!:)

Here the last scene of Ugly Betty:


Freaks and Geeks where one of my fav' teenager tv shows/soaps/series after The O.C.! I loved to watch what's new at the "freaks" gang:) The show centers on teenage Lindsay Weir and her younger brother Sam, who both attend William McKinley during the 1980-81 school year in the town of Chippewa/Michigan (another fictional suburb of Detroit)

Lindsay's friends constitute the "freaks" — Daniel Desario (James Franco), Ken Miller (Seth Rogen), Nick Andopolis (Jason Segel), Kim Kelly (Busy Philipps) — and Sam's friends constitute the "geeks" — Neal Schweiber and Bill Haverchuck.  The Weirs' parents, Harold and Jean, are featured in every episode.

The show's starting point is Lindsay's transition from her life as an academically proficient student, star "mathlete", and proper young girl to an Army-jacket-wearing teenager who hangs out with troubled slackers. Her relationships with her new friends, and the friction they cause with her parents and with her own self-image, form one central strand of the show; the other follows Sam and his group of geeky friends as they navigate a different part of the social universe, and try to fit in.

I loved to watch each episode and just enjoy to see the crazy school times in the early 80's (Oh how much I love the 80's - I must be a bit crazy:)?!)


8 Simple Rules:

1. Use your hands on my daughter and you'll lose them after.
2. You make her cry, I make you cry.
3. Safe sex is a myth. Anything you try will be hazardous to your health.
4. Bring her home late, there's no next date.
5. If you pull into my driveway and honk, you better be dropping off a package because you're sure not picking anything up (Alternative rule #5: Only delivery men honk. Dates ring the doorbell. Once.)
6. No complaining while you're waiting for her. If you're bored, change my oil.
7. If your pants hang off your hips, I'll gladly secure them with my staple gun.
8. Dates must be in crowded public places. You want romance? Read a book.

I've loved to watch this funny and mostly confusing Hennessy family contains of: Paul H. (father), Cate S. H. (mother), Bridget Erin "Beach" H. (stereotypical blonde young teen girl), Kerry "Care Bear" H. (middle child - not happy about it), Rory Joseph H. (son & youngest child). And must say, that I was really sad after Ritter past away! It was an ultimative great ficitional father and in reality too young to die!

The third season (after Ritter's death) took a creative turn, revolving more around cousin C.J., and grandfather Jim, than the immediate Hennessy family, more specifically not revolving around the raising of the Hennessy girls.

As I've loved the original movie "Clueless" with Alicia Silverstone - I've watched and enjoyed the tv show "Clueless" with the main character Cher (by Rachel Blanchard) too! It's a typical 90's girly sitcom & reminds me on both: childhood & teeny time!:)

Sabrina The Teenage Witch - there was a tv show/serie/soap official magazine too, which I've got from my mum each week/month too, 'cause I loved the magic/witch soap sooo much:)! I played some short scenes from the tv show too at home with my friends at the age of 10 and watched it until I was maybe 14 (13 or 14).

H2O Just Add Water - O.K. I don't believe in mermaids or such magical things in real BUT this tv show/teenage soap it was too magical and a sweet 16 lovestory too:) And if you're 13 or 14 years old - it's not too awkward to watch such shows:)

Everwood- the series begins with the arrival of Dr. Andrew "Andy" Brown, a widower who leaves his successful job as a top Manhattan neurosurgeon to live in a small Colorado town, bringing his 9-year-old daughter Delia and 15-year-old son Ephram with him.

He chooses the town of Everwood because his late wife had told him of her emotional attachment to the town. Many of the story lines revolve around settling into a new town, dealing with the death of Julia (the mother and wife of the family) and the growing relationship between Andy and his son, who did not interact much in New York, due to the demands of Andy's job. Andy at first finds some conflict with Dr. Harold Abbott, with whom his professional opinions differ. However, Harold's cranky demeanor and Andy's passive, cheerful attitude prove to mesh well and the two begin a friendly rivalry. Ephram continually struggles with his emerging adolescence, his studies as a classical pianist, and his crush on Amy, Harold's daughter.

It's a typical country-/traditional american tv show, and it plays in a small village a kind of Gilmore Girls too, with a difference - 'cause Everwood's "downtown clinic" really exists just in Ogden Utah. 

Oh So Little Time, is a typical girly teeny tv sitcom, which I've also watched between the age of 9 and 13 years!:)

And last but not least 7th heaven, family Camden is the best ficitional fam' after family Tanner (Full House) & Step by Step patchwork fam' - I'm not really religious BUT I love the harmony in this fam' and I believe that such fam' really live Glen Oak, California! The first episode I've saw with 8 or 7 years and watched it until now! - It's a great tv show for children, teenagers and adults too - just a perfect fam' fav' tv show!

My current fav' TV shows:

I'm now not really much watching TV especially TV shows, 'cause the older one I've had as fav's I knew and the latest ones aren't sooo much interesting for myself. BUT I've two TV shows, which I'm watching weekly:)

The Big Bang Theory - Oh my gosh, such a great and crazy (in a high level:)) and awesome sitcom


Vypravej - It's a czech tv show/serie/soap/sitcom, which shows a whole typical czech fam' from the early 60's until the 21th century (2005) it's full with czech history (so you learn a lot about your country - even if you're a native czech as I:)) and you also see things you've seen in museums or at your grandma's/pa's house or just in your childhood like for example the packaging of a yogurt in the 90's - a great mixture of sitcom and history and it also earned a nomination!:)

The intro of the 1 episode, 2. episode, 3. episode etc.

I hope you've enjoyed maybe the LONGEST post ever on my blog (YES it's the longest - and maybe the longest of all blogs worldwide:)) And I would be sooo interested in which one tv shows you've watched as a child with your family or as a teeny and now?

Wish you a lovely sunday afternoon!

Bye,
NIKA
