Thriller Movie Reccomendation. Insomnia

I recently watched the movie Insomnia (2002 version). It's a pretty
 good movie. I was interested in reading the book. I already read other books by the same author. So I saw the movie. It is about a detective troubled with bad concious while investigating a murder. While the detective  search for a killer, this killer plays a game with him. A game that invloves meetings with just the two of them and phone calls from the killer.

 The detective's partner is killed early in the investigaion. And the killer blames the detective for that after seeing the situation. Things become very intense. The main characters struggle with lack of sleep which makes things harder. 

There were some very interesting scenes in the movie. Scenes that creates strong images in my head about the characters. Visually the movie is simple and beautiful. The locations were nice too creating a special atmosphere.

All the actors play their role convincing.  I noticed some small  roles were played very well! The girlfriend and boyfriend of the dead girl. Al Pacino plays the main character. Robin Williams the killer and Hilary Swank a local detective.

What do you think about this movie? :)

Book Pick. The Valley of Fear

  The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I'm pretty excited about this book. I liked the radio theatre version on NRK a lot! In the radio theatre a lot was missing. So reading it will be good. :) 

I've earlier read the first chapters and here is what happens. The story begins with a tricky murder case and the police need help. Sherlock Holmes and doctor Watson come to the crime scene the next day. They try to solve what's happened to the dead man found with strange clues on and around his body. Dead in his own home. There is the mysterious burned mark on his body, his wedding ring missing, muddy boot marks behind a curtain. And a blood mark on the window sill. To mention some things. And of course the strange gun.

The house itself is strange. To come and leave one must use the house bridge. The ones inside opens and closes it every day with no exception (I think). The fact that the house is difficult to enter shows that the murder was strongly motivated. I look forward to read more :)
Already there are many details. But the author presents them well.

My Beauty Bag Staples

This is the beauty stash I always have in my beauty bag. Lipbalms. I never go anywhere without one. My favourite is the Blistex Daily Lip Conditioner as it is super soothing and nice to use under lipliners. On days I wear makeup I always wear a honey coloured blush. I wear one from Seventeen. Called Bashful. On me it looks more like a soft bronzer. I like this more then my Soap & Glory Solar Powder because this is softer and warmer. 

On eyes I like to wear a subtle shimmery beige colour from Clinique. This looks good with any other makeup and brightens up the eye area. It's slightly creamy with a fresh more dewy look. I can't get enough of this. It's so pretty.

I have a couple constant Mac makeup favourites here too. The Rosy Rim lipliner in pastel pink and the Pure Zen lipstick in pastel peach. These two bring a pop of colour to my makeup. So does the dark purple lipgloss from Isadora. The pigmentation of these lip products is great!  

What are your beauty staples?

Todays Makeup. Pearl Peach and Purple

I thought it was time to make my makeup different. I chose some cream products for my look that I've seldom used.  The products are from H & M, Skinfood and Mac. I think they are all in stores. I like cream products as they look dewy and interesting. I often find the colours more interesting then the dry ones. I've not liked orange blushes but this is silk crispy. In other words interesting. :) It looks great with other strong colours in makeup and clothes. I selected a light and summery lipstick colour. It always complets my makeup. This is the Mac Pure Zen. A pastel peach lipstick with shine and lots of pigments.  On eyes I've selected a dusty purple. This has lots of pretty shimmer in it. Now can someone please bring spring weather so I can wear this often with the green top :) This one is from a brand called Stay. I think it will be a favourite piece of mine this spring. Do you like the makeup and top?

Movies I wanna See this Spring

 I've been watching a lot of movies lately. Maybe more then I should. It's been pretty fun though. Action and crime are my favourite genres since I started seeing Poirot as a child. I always think I've seen all movies there but the serie is endless. In the action genre I've searched for movies based on interesting stories, characters and actors. The first movie which I've already seen is The Italian Job. The story takes you straight into a heist in Italy which goes wrong. A plan is made to correct what can be done from the burglers side. This story is  about the burglers only. I can't remember seeing cops. That's interesting!

I've seen the 2006 Jane Eyre series a thousand times but not any of the movies! And the book I loved! So I look forward to see one. It's a pretty good story!  Have you seen these movies? What do you like about them? Do you have movie recommendations?

The Italian Job

We Own the Night

The Happening

A Friday Treat. L:A Bruket Skin Care Mist

It's finally a new weeked. I had been longing for this one since I've been pushing myself to much at work. It's great to have some days just to relax! And that's what I've been doing the most of this Friday. Some of the time I spent at a cafe drinking wine, hot choccolatte and eating macaroons while reading a book. I decided to look closer at a skin care product too that I'd been curious to try and bought this facial mist at the shop Cornelias Hus in Oslo. They have so many elegant and special things there. And a couple skin care brands I've not seen elsewhere that seems interesting!

This facial mist I bought is from a brand called L:A Bruket. It feels and smells very refreshing and is  comfortable on the skin. My skin looks nice and healthy with a more even skin tone after applying the mist. Some beauty products are so good they make you see the benefits quick! I'm definitely into this product. It has natural ingredients good for the skin such as camomile and bergamot. And again the scent is so nice. It their candles are anything close to this I'll buy one. This product is nice for everyday use as it is mild to the skin. If there was a smaller size I would buy one to wear with me at all times. And I guess I'll be having a closer look at those candles too:)

Have you tried this brand?
