Todays Makeup. Warm Colors

I need warmth in my makeup. I want some of that summer feeling to stay too. A glowy foundation, red blush and champagne highlighter are my focus. I'm loving my recent foundation find. The warm color is deeper then my other foundations. So it was a natural choice now.

After applying concealer and stick foundation I dabbed red cream blush on my cheeks and added pink blush above and a bit over the blush. Then added champagne highlighter in a half cirle from the eyelids and a bit downwards on the cheeks. And used a similar eyeshadow with the highlighter on the eyelids.

Reading Now. A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie

My reading mood is back. I've selected another classic fiction to read through the next weeks. An Agatha Christie book. This I was a bit more excited about then the previous ones.

 The book is called "A Murder is Announced." This sentence people read about in the news paper. A long with where and when. Readers think it is a party game and curious they show up. Then something terrible happens. And an investigation begins. Miss Marple is there to help the local police.

On the inside of this book cover it says: "Such an invitation is difficult to resist for the neighbours, mysterious strangers and the killer." That does sound interesting right?  :)

I'm in the second chapter now. At this time one person suspects there is evil behind the annoucement. And seems to convince a second person that there is. And were they right?

Reading Now. Evil Under the Sun by Agatha Christie

Today I began reading another Agatha Christie classic. This one is the "Evil Under the Sun". I read it ten years or so and it does feel quite like a new book to read. I remmeber it was good and reading  half in one day I agree. A lot of it is actually conversations so far. I imagine the rest continues like that.

The detective Hercule Poirot has a holiday on a pretty island when one of the hotel guests is found killed on a beach. The victim was unpopular among hotel guests. Early in the story they talk about how unlikely it is that any murder would happen on such a pretty island. They excpected something bad would happen for anyone there who spent time with the unpopular guest though. Hercule Poirot senses death around the corner. Jealousy seems to be the motive. The body was found by one of the persons who could have done it. A man they all feared would have an affair with the woman and thereby destroy his own marriage.

There is an interesting mix of personalities and a sort of friendly atmosphere thought tense among some. Overall I find it to be an interesting story. And easy reading. If you like the sound it go ahead and read!

2 Lip Balms with Dreamy Scent and Design

Dreamy and cute lip balms. These are my favorites now.

My best beauty buys lately have been these Tony Moly lip balms. They are the prettiest and best scented lip balms I've tried. The red one has a shiny red color with a glossy texture that looks a bit like my lips but better. The other is transparent glossy. I found these at the airport outside Ålesund town. 

The scent of these too are amazing. It's like the best summer scents I can think of. Of flowers and apples combined.  With this cheerful design I think they'll be perfect gifts. The quality of these two lip balms seems equally good. The red on is called Mini Berry Lip Balm Cherry. The soft yellow and orange: Mini Peach Lip Balm. I would definitely buy them again.

Reading Now. Cards On The Table by Agatha Christie


I've enjoyed reading this so much. I read many books and this is my favorite now. Because it is so surprising.

Detective Hercule Poirot is invited by Mr. Shaitana to a party. With people whom Mr. Shaitana believe are killers. He tells Hercule that he collects the human beings who commit murder and have not been noticed. Hercule goes to the party and that evening during the guests bridge play Shaitana is found dead. Before the man died he hinted to everyone during the dinner that he knew secrets. Hercule Poirot believes the answer is to look at these peoples past. Each person is given plenty of focus in the story.

As I read I get a feeling of time standing still. Which is pleasant. The story never gets boring. I've read it once before and seen the movie and remember there where nice surprises. Knowing that each suspect were described by Shaitana as a killer gives the story a special atmosphere. Have/ would you read Cards On The Table by Agatha Christie?

Wednesday, August 8, 2018


It was especially nice to wake up this day of the summer. Today is the first day of my summer holiday. After breakfast which I had late I went to a cafe and ate pizza and read. I'm rereading The Castle by Franz Kafka. And so far it seems just as good. I had a look in different stores and opened a couple books. I bought candy and a plum colored lip gloss. A color I've not liked but this was a bit red with an interesting shine. The candy is pretty much gone. Before my movie time. I'm rewatching Psycho III now. It is not as good as the first one but I have no complains. And I'm looking forward to see the second and fourth one! I'm expecting many interesting scenes in those ones too.

Feel-Good Skin Care Products

I know I will like these products for a long time. They are so moisturizing and calming. Have you tried any of them?

Soap & Glory Melty Talented Balm

I was happy when I saw this brand had released new products. Every time I'm in Boots store I makeup sure to check if  the brand has something new. This balm is a good comfort product. I use it on lips. It can also be used on hair tips, elbows, knees and cuticles. It is as the name says a bit melted in texutre. But it is not sticky. It contains coconut and almond oils, mango butter and vitamin E. Which is good stuff for your skin. I can't get enough of anything that smells so lovely! Pretty nice is the design too.

Dove Nourishing Secrets Body Lotion

It's not often my skin feels well moisturised by body lotion. This one is my must have. It is called nourishing secrets which was the reason I bought it. I like the calming feeling after use and that it sinks into the skin quick. The scent is relaxing and pure. The body lotion is for all skin types.

Nivea 1 Minute Urban Detox Mask. 

This is a very nice face mask. There 's so much moisture in it. It feels so calming on and is quick in use. It's a 1 minute mask. The soothing scent is making the experience nice too. My skin feels and looks softer after use. This mask is suitable for all skin types. And this is one I'll use up.

Lumene Radiance Boosting Complexion Water 

This is a really nice toner for achiving a bit of glowy skin. In addition to that glow I am pretty sure this is one of those products that makes my skin look smoother. I've used it for months. My skin feels happy. What more can I ask for. This product is for normal and combination skin. As with the other products it has a very comfortable scent.
