Major Beauty Haulin'

On my vacation in the US over the holidays, I caught up on months worth of my accumulating beauty wish list. It was long, and I only made a dent in it, but I think it's safe to say I did enough damage.

Instead of writing about my most recent beauty purchases until my fingers fell off, I decided to make a little video instead, where I basically talked until my tongue fell out. The video is a bit long (and I even cut it down by about 10 minutes!), so bear with me's my first time!

I don't think this will be a regular occurrence on A Mate & a Rottweiler, but once in a while I think it'd be fun.

Now, let's get to business!

  1. is that one always has these very beautiful for men kisses. andrea

    1. The truth is, I love to primp & pamper! I think I do it more for myself than anyone else! xx

  2. You did a vlog!! I love it! It's so fun hearing your voice. You sound exactly like I thought you would. :)

    I went to The Body Shop for the first time ever last week. It's such a great place! :)

    1. That's so funny how you already had an idea of how I would sound! Glad you liked the video. I may do some more in the future, just because I had fun making this one, but I'm not sure how many people would watch, so we'll see!
      Love The Body Shop, too! Did you get anything there?

  3. Haha love it, first video ever and 20 minutes long!! So cute!
    Btw I always do the same when I go to Germany: buy all the stuff I can't get here in Spain.
    xx, Sarah

    1. Thanks for watching Sarah! I did the video as kind of a "self challenge". A few years ago, I wouldn't dare make a video to put online (I'm kind of a shy person around strangers or groups of people, but once you get to know me, I'm really not that way). So at least I proved to myself that I could do it, and also found out I had the patience to edit as well! haha
      And yes, whenever I go to the States I go crazy over all the items I can't get here. What kind of things do you usually buy in Germany that you can't get in Spain? xx

  4. Absolutely adorable vlog...............real, honest and totally you. Do more!

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you liked it! I'm still deciding about whether I will make more videos or not!

  5. Omg we finally heard your voice!! :D I LOVE IT, Chrystin! i can totally see your personality through the video, I'd totally subscribe to your channel if tyou ever decide to make more vlogs :) You showed really interesting products and I loved all your honest opinions about them.
    Love it, love it, love it!!

    1. Thanks, Deb!! That means a lot to me! I felt like I was really putting myself out there with this video.... I'm SO glad you liked it. :-)


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love hearing what you have to say :)
