The haul: L:A Bruket Lip Balm Almond/Coconut and L:A Bruket Hand Cream Bergamot/Patchouli
I was in airports a while ago and hoped to find L:A Bruket cosmetics. It seems like an interesting brand. I wanted to buy again one of their hand creams and try something else. I decided to buy a lip balm.
The size is good. The design is pretty! The lip balm seems some days good and other okay when it comes to moisture. The hand cream is one of my favorite skin care products. It smells so good!! The scent i so calming and uplifting. I love it! The moisture level is pretty good.
The packaging however on the hand cream can be damaged. The surface seems hard but can break some places and cream leak.
The lip balm has some scent. I would like it better if it had a calming scent like the hand cream. I will probably buy the lip balm again and the hand cream for sure!

A book I've been reading lately is "The Woman in Cabin 10" (2016) by Ruth Ware. It is a fiction story. I've just began reading part six of eight. Now things seem to be happening!
The main charater is a journalist who is on a cruise ship with a group of other journalists. On board one night something scares her. There was a sound of something that could have been a body thrown overboard. And she is certain that she has seen blood.
She feels her story is not taken seriously when she share it. But then get some help. From an earlier boyfriend who's there. He also makes things complicated.
From cabin 10 where she believes the aweful thing happened she has a memory of a blonde woman staying. But no one has knowledge about this woman beeing there. In fact she's told that cabin 10 is empty.
Someone leaves a warning to the journalist. And the journalist goes missing.
I like that the main character is brave and alone. That the group of journalist in many ways act the same and she's an underdog and outsider.
I like this book but feel the story developement has been slow. I am more interested in the story now.

Yesterday I had a closer look at a palette I bought from Makeup Mekkas new makeup. This blush palette has four strongly pigmented colors. I was in the mood for pink color. I like it. It reminds me of one I already have. And this is more intense.
The rest of my makeup consists mainly of favorite products I've had for some time. I use the cc cream, concealer and highlighter a lot! Then I've been using the gloss recently. The eyebrow color is one of the newest finds. It is more intense then my last one. In a good way. I like better a stronger defined eyebrow color now to frame the rest of my makeup.

Everything's Eventual (2002) is a short story collection written by Stephen King. It contains 14 short stories. I've read several of them and thought they were atmospheric. They are detailed with a slow development of the story. Since they were so atmospheric I liked the slow developement of the stories.
Interesting they were with endings easy to grasp. I like reading them in the evening. Because of the atmosphere. And at that time everything is usually quiet around me.
Getting to know many of the main characters thoughts and emotions is something I like and I got plenty here. The reading has never been boring.
The book cover is so cool. I really like the color combination! Just like the stories it is atmospheric.
Stephen King's stories sure are creative. I look forward to read more of his books. I should find some for my next holiday already.

Cute,little things like these three hourglasses caught my attention yesterday. I like hourglasses. Small and big ones just as much. These are the smallest ones I've spotted. There were four or more sand colors. I picked white, black and orange.
Sometimes I feel little decor pieces are just as atmospheric as bigger ones. Like for instance a mirror on the wall. Or a range of displayed books. I guess I will buy more hourglasses when they look so pretty.
Have you found something nice lately? Perhaps an hourglass?
