Dreamy Notebook/Decor






























My new notebook favorite is this dreamy pink one. I've wished to find decor with this type of design. So I think I will use it for both purposes.

I usually buy mine from TGR. And that is were I found this one. It was the only one interesting to me this time.

I would not think of adding pink to my decor but when I first placed it into the wall I thought it should stay there.

It is lined inside. I always look for lined ones since I don't use notebooks to draw in.


What's your favorite notebook brand?

Spring Highlight




























I can't believe spring is over. It would be nice if I was able to make time feel longer. Sometimes when I have energy to read a lot a day that day feels longer.

My favorite acitivty this spring was not reading but dancing. I took two dance courses. Lady style hip-hop and contemporary jazz. That hip-hop style I've never tried before. It was fun and challenging.

I might have tried contemporary jazz before during a winter and spring jazz course. But it felt new to me and this dance I was better at then the hip-hop style.

I enjoyed both of them just as much. And look forward to continue with dance classes this autumn! It is one of my favorite activities.

Reading Now






















"The Child"(2017) by Fiona Barton


It was difficult to stop reading this book the day I bought it. I bought it because it reminded me of the book "In a dark, dark wood" by Ruth Ware. Which I absolutely loved!

The story is not similar but there was something about the atmosphere and characters beeing writers among other things that gave me the association.

I began reading this at a cafe but struggled to consentrate because of some loud people doing a quiz like it was a matter of life or death next to me. So I continued reading at home. Now I'm almost finished.

The story is about the discovery of a baby skeleton and three women interested in the case. One of them thinks it might be her  baby who dissapeared many years ago. Another is a journalist who writes about the discovery. When it comes to the third woman I'm not sure why she is interested. But the news about the baby skeleton makes her nervous and she can't relax. So far in the story she has contacted the journalist a couple times.

The book is well written and atmospheric. I think one of the main characters are especially interesting to read about and people she knows. The latter person, Emma. 

I found it interesting that few other characters seem interested in the discovery. 

Have you read the book?

Todays Makeup



 This is the makeup I like best to wear now. It includes products that look natural and a salient, nude lipstick for a touch of color. It is quick to apply. And looks healthy. 

When I get some tan I will add a bit of the dark solar powder color too. This solar powder is really nice. I always return to it. And the lipstick is nice. Especially when it is not heavily applied. Then it looks kinda neon. 


What makeup do you like best now?

Products:

The Ordinary. Coverage Foundation 1.2 N Light Neutral
Maybelline Fit me! Concealer 15
Soap & Glory Solar Powder 
Makeup Mekka Foil Me Eyeshadow Obey

June Face Masks





I see a big selection face masks in many shops. I plan to try many and write about them here. I can't remember seeing so many before. So this should be fun for me.

My skin needs moisture and purifying ingredients. Also something to give it a glowy appearance now and then. 

My face masks picks for this month are these two: All about MEE - Pomegranate Clay Mask and my skin Kitty face Facial sheet mask.

I like clay masks and sheet masks and hope I will like these two! 

Next month I will pick one or more creamy face masks. Do you have any suggestions?

7 Things I Like









Ballet

I like ballet just as much as when I first tried it. I've been dancing it for three years. Past season I tried level 3/2 which was easier then expected. I planned to continue with level 2 and by misstake took a harder option. That misstake has been good for my confidence. I want to continue on this level. I might get my next chance this autumn and winter.


Relaxing next to a forest water

That is something I would like to do more this summer. The opportunities are not far away. And it makes me calm. I'm hoping for good weather! And friends joining me.


Revlon 640 Fearless nail polish

This nail polish has been a good buy. I absolutely love it. I like that is has a subtle shine with the intense color. This one I want to wear weekly. It's my top favorite nail polish.


Makeup Mekka Kiss and Blush Cream Touch- Lollipop

 From Makeup Mekka Summer Heat collection this product interested me. I like cream makeup. With it one can create a nice dewy finish quick. It's been a long time since I've used coral colors. This one reminds me of summer and ocean. It even has a scent! And the design is salient.


Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Of books I read now this is most entertaining. It has much atmosphere which I like. Much of the story shows the main characters thoughts. I found it so interesting to read. Maybe therefore I easily accepted that the monster first greets and meets main character and creator halfway in the story. Where the monster talks about his experiences beeing alive.


Nille pen

This is the cutest treat in a while. It's so pretty.


Bik Bok Be Ellie hoops

I've wanted to use pearl accessory for a while. But not seen anything interesting until recently. I just found the perfect treat. Since I love hoops and details this treat has been my accessory buy. I'm going to wear them with basic clothes. And anything else that might fit.

I Want to Write






















I began today with breakfast, music and writing. That's a rare combination for me. For long I've done little short story writing. I've felt completely stuck. How nice it was to get a good feeling about it.

I did not want to stay home all day and went to a cafe. Where I continued writing and read.  

 At the library later I found a short story collection I've wanted to read. "Hold heisen" (2019) by Nora Lindblad. I've read in it already.

 I have a new reading goal. That is to read short stories weekly. 

When writing is fun it feels like many good things has happened to me in a short time.
