 Old and New Movies

There is something magical about old movies. Not just the new ones. At first after seeing so many modern filled with impressions, an old looked odd. One of the nice things about these movies is the time they give you to fill in the story while watching. They have less of everything, and at the same time they can have more. Less music, less activity, less special effects. Yet they can be so enriching. Sometimes I really miss seeing more simplicity in modern films. I can easily be drawn into the universe and get inspired and interested. I love details and lot's of impressions, but I hate not being able to talk with my friends about what I've seen over long conversations. I like watching movies over and over again, but I find myself rather alone doing that. 

What do you think? Should new movies embrace more from the old?

November Favourite Photo

I love this photo. Somehow the cold colours become warm and inviting. I like the small, messy looking contrast in the depth of focus. Everything looks a bit unclear except the horse and the fence in front.

My Favourite Lip Balm

Lypsyl Rosy Lips has a fragrance, colour and texture that is perfect all year round. It reminds me of the classic Smith's Rosebud.

It is getting dark early at this time of year. The light in this photo and the hint of branches makes it worth saving:) I took this photo at Østensjø Lake. Thirty minutes earlier and you would have seen the lake. 

The area is wonderful for walking and running. I went for many walks here previous summer. When it has just gotten somewhat darker after clear daylight, like a drawing like blue and grey colour, it is a beautiful sight looking at the line of trees with the green grass in front and the sky behind.

Shopping Day

I love shopping days. Friday I spent time shopping in the city. I found some nice things. The black skirt was very much needed in my wardrobe. I love the sparkle. The makeup bag has a very nice colour nuance and size . Both items are from H & M. I also picked up the facial cleanser there. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. After using it for a couple of days, it has become my favorite cleanser. It is practical, affordable and leaves my skin looking fresher.

On my next shopping day I will be looking for a grey wool sweather, rings and a bracelet, and perhaps new shoes.

Ten Photo Favorites


Two New Favorites 

I fell in love with the Kicks Girly Flirty lipstick. This orange color is brighter then my Gosh lipstick, and has some soft sparkle in it. It will fit my foundation perfect. 

This concealer has a no makeup look, and is easy to build up. It also matches my foundation and can be used on its own. It feels very comfortable. I went with the second shade (there are three shades of the Radiant Glow Concealer).

Catching Up

I finally met my friend Karina again. The last time we met we went to a wonderful concert. This time we decided to go to Egon restaurant. The atmosphere and design of the place is beautiful. We ordered lunch and popped by a beauty store before heading down to a coffee place. It was quite cold outside but we did not walk for long. I went for a raspberry tart at the cafe and Karina for a cup of coffee.

At the beauty store I came across a wonderful orange lipstick that I think I might add to my collection soon :)

Ready for some food :)

Temperature has dropped. Walking outdoors is just as nice now as early autumn. I enjoy twice a day a walk. I've been swimming which is one of my favorite activities. The first novel in the trilogy The Lord of the Rings has not disappointed. I have come half way and loved the reading. Also I've been reading Phantoms which has an interesting universe. In my experience most scary movies and books don't have a safe feeling to them and at the same time being scary/creepy. I was drawn to the book after seeing the movie.

I have seen many movies lately, and become found of seeing several over and over again. Tomorrow I look forward to spend some time with a friend of mine :) It has been a while.
A Selection in Red

I love good lip products. Red ones are my favorites. They are timeless. I've bought most of them this year. The botanics one is from yesterday. The red Gosh lipstick in shade Dangerous is my favorite so far. Lately I've been mainly using my Maybeline Color Drama lip stick. It is quite dark, but not too dark. The Lush lip tint has been a favorite for quite some time. It has, as the one from Maybeline a pink nuance with the red. The orange is not quite red, but if I ever come across one similar I'll throw it in with my timeless favorites. Then before next year, repurchase the orange one, and red one from Gosh.

 Photo Today

The photo is not as clear as I would like it to be. Freezing outdoors, ready to get in, I did not get the best photos today, but I know where I'll go next time :) I seldom see horses. Walking down to the see, I have sometimes seen two horses by the path.

 Newest Photos

Photos from today and some earlier. The two first photos were the only good ones I got this previous saturday. A rainy and cloudy day makes photography more challenging I think. 

A notebook with a letter. I love scrapbook paper :) I hope my pen-pal will enjoy this one.
