Good evening everyone,
as promised yesterday, I wanted to tell you about the DM Marken Camp Beauty which was held in Dusseldorf on the 13th of September.
I can tell you that I was pretty excited about this. I applied and was picked and invited to the event. Even though I had to pay for the trip myself, it was totally worth it. For me it was the perfect opportunity for a small weekend trip to Dusseldorf, which I always wanted to visit. Thanks to my sister in law I had a place to stay for free, so the only thing I had to pay was the flight.
flight to Dusseldorf
The event was on a Saturday, so I took Friday off from work and went to Dusseldorf in the morning. I met with my brother, sister in law and my niece and we spend some nice time in the city. In the evening I met a friend of mine which I haven’t seen in 2 years.
On Saturday I went to the event, which was simply overwhelming. There were so many Bloggers and YouTubers. I couldn’t believ it^^
Even though the event started around 10 am and ended at 7 pm, there was not enough time to talk to everyone, which I felt a bit sad about. I love those events for networking and getting to know new people.
I got to Meliá Hotel at around 10 am and was welcomed with a nice refreshment drink and breakfast buffet with fresh coffee. After a short time of being alone I met Jule (Julchens Traumewelt) and Inga (NostalgiaQueen). Inga even had a small present for me! She bought me a few Sally Hansen polishes while she was in London. She is so sweet and I still am very happy and thankful about that!
Look what she had for me
- Sally Hansen Magnetic – 908 graphite gravity
- Sally Hansen Magnetic – 912 cosmic blue
- Sally Hansen Sugar Coat – 400 sweetie
- Catrice – LE arts collection – C03 bronze-deco
- small grey polish from the styleranking fashionbloggercafe_shoe edition
- Catrice – LE rocking royals C01 of royal blood (velvet nail powder)
The event itself started with a talk about the sessions which the girls who prepared, introduced to us.
Everyone got a badge with their name and some information materials.
The day was packed with sessions which were partially held by the other girls or employees from the DM Team.
There was also a session held by two lawyers who taught us a lot of interesting and important things regarding blogging.
My first session was held by Malte and was about SEO. Something I didn’t know s*** about :D
I also visited AnnKristin0’s session for nail art and one about taking good pictures. To be honest though, I didn’t really understood much of it haha
There were also different rooms for the DM brands. One was for their brand Alverde, another for Dontodent, p2 and the last for Ebelin and Balea.
We got to see new products and try them out. Some things we were allowed to take home with us.
The Dontodent room also had a Barkeeper who reminded me of my friend Dominic….so that’s how I called him all day haha
He mixed drink made of tea, tapioca’s and for example ginger foam. YUM!
Ebelin / Balea
In the Ebelin / Balea room we even had the chance to get our hair done and a professional Make-up.
get yo hair did gurl
around 12 o’clock it was time for lunch!
In the p2 room I was talking to Arndt about their nail polishes, telling him that I already have been to 5 different DM stores to get the new leather matte effect polishes, but the two colors I desperately wanted were sold out EVERYWHERE!
I offered him to give him the money so I could take them from the shelf, but he said it’s okay and gave them to me.
Thank you again Arndt, that was so lovely of you.

At the end of the day we had a small discussion again about the things we liked and didn’t like. To be honest, the only negative things that was mentioned was that there were not enough electricity plug for that many social media girls haha
For me it was not much of a big deal, because I always carry my emergency easyacc haha
In the end, each of us got a goodie bag to take home to. Here are the things I got in the several rooms and my goodie bag.
A few Balea Men products, which I took for my younger brother Keno. I hope he will enjoy trying these. :)
A few Alverde products, from hair mist, over eye-shadow to conditioner and soap.
pocket sized Ebelin nail files
a pocket mirror and plug
as well as a hair brush / teaser
Dontodent toothbrush, mouthspray and gum
Balea bath bombs in a strong chocolate scent and Balea Shower gel
p2 nail wax, lip primer and lip color
and last but not least Princes glitter soap for my niece
Sunday morning it was time for me to go home.
I really had a good time in Dusseldorf and was really happy to meet at least some of you and get to talk a bit.
I am really looking forward to the next event :)
Have a great night
