Accounting Stress & The Scout Remedy | Loepsie’s Life

Hello beautiful people! Here I am once again with a two-week compilation diary. Last week I accidentally left my laptop charger in Utrecht, so I couldn’t do any work (including typing up my diary) from Friday until Monday. I do have to say it was a nice unexpected little break!

Let’s take a look at everything I was up to these past two weeks!

My Current Minimal Summer Makeup Routine

Fresh-faced minimal makeup routine for summer. Only 6 products!

Since temperatures went up in mid spring, I’ve found myself gravitating towards a new, very minimal makeup routine.

My brown is a bit cooler and there are a couple of green streaks in the brittle, lighter parts of my ends, it looks quite nice really. However, I can imagine someone could be really unhappy with getting a green cast over their hair for whatever reason, so I decided to jump on this opportunity and try a couple of DIY methods that are supposed to get rid of the green, to let you know what works. First up: neutralising green hair with ketchup!
