Stripes


The last years I've liked stripes on clothes a lot. On sweathers, tops and shirts. I wear it every week or so. Black and white is typically me! I found these leggings in a Gina Tricot shop this autumn and instatnly loved them a bit! This is a bit the same but still different from what I wear. When will I wear them? On days when I need to focus more on art! This piece gives me a feel - good vibe.

3 For Glowy Skin




























In todays blog post I'm writing about favorite beauty products for glowy skin. I find that these products always deliver. And I can't be without them. They all appear rejuvenating on skin. The skin care products feels calming and refreshing and that glow shows pretty quick! It took less then a week to see results on my skin. Naturally a foundation will show right away its glow, matte or combo effect. This one certainly lives up to its name. Two of these treats are almost empty and I will buy all products again. They are a dream for the skin.


Products:

Lumene Kirkas Radiance Boosting Complexion Water

Makeup Mekka Prep Spray (Primer)

Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation

Todays Makeup





Here are some harmonius colors I'm into at the moment. That pink and gold look so nice. I treated myself a new eye shadow and found these other products to match perfectly. The foundation is my current favorite. It looks so luxuriously soft. These products I trust makes my skin look more rejuvenated.

This year I am for the first time  liking plum colored lip products. So when I want some more color that is my first option.

What products are you into at the moment?

Things I've Liked in October




























The first proper amount of snow came today. It was quite refreshing going for a walk. I can't yet imagine that I will weekly go for walks as I've decided. Ballet is the fun thing to do when I have extra energy. So I do that at home this half year. And this is something I would like to do more of! And one of the things I've enjoyed this October. 

 And seeing the movies Secret Window, It and Notting Hill. Reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and a third book I'll blog about soon. A cool book I read in again and again. It does not seem to end. But actually it is not a big book. 

Blogging. I'm enjoying it more now then I've done for a while! And the goal is at least one blog post a week. With beauty as the main topic then books and movies. 

I had a nice forest walk recently with my camera around my neck and got a couple nice photos that cloudy day. Walking is one of those things I don't exactly find nice at the beginning but afterwards it is something different. And walking is what I'm going to do now.


What have you enjoyed this month?

New Beauty Favorites






Makeup Mekka Prep Spray. This primer spray is making my skin happy. It gives the skin glow, makes it calm and nourished. It does it so well. I'm keeping my makeup on with this easily. The scent of flowers is nice too. It reminds me of my favorite face spray by Elizabeth Arden.


Skin Treat Deep-Hydrating Hand Cream. The hand cream from Skin Treat is the first product I've tried from this brand. And it is my new favorite hand cream. Now that it is cold outside a product like this is a daily must have. And how nice is smells. As well as beeing good nourishment it is skin clarifying. So hands look prettier too. Good bye dry hands!

October Reading



























I assume by the arrogant gaze that the person on the book cover is a Sherlock Holmes character.



I am currently reading A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Reading two of his books  + short stories and seeing Sherlock episodes (the same again and again) the rest of the books about the detective have been on my must read list. :)

After some chapters and a surprising end to the first part of the story I'm now trying to get used to the total shift in place and time. From London to a desert. With other characters to follow.

 This book is the first about consulting detective Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr. John Watson who helps him with cases. As a reader you get to see the detective through John's thoughts. I liked that he made a list over the detectives talents and his not so talented areas. After the doctor moving into the flat where Sherlock lives he helps him with a bizarre crime. That somehow is connected to the story of people in that desert far away. And early in the story Sherlock thinks he has solved the crime.

There are some nice descriptions of situations that I think might have created lasting images in my mind already. Foreshadowing images.






Thriller Movie Recommendation. Secret Window (2004)



I hope you have had a nice weekend. It has been a pretty okay weekend for me. I've had a nice energy level. One of the things I did was to watch movies. I decided to see again a movie I've enjoyed a couple times before. Secret Window. I actually liked it better this time.

Author Mort Rainey (Johnny Depp) gets a visit by a stranger (John Turturro) that claims a story of his has been stolen by Mort. The stranger gives him a bit of time to prove he has not stolen it. Mort experience the stranger becoming dangerous. One day his dog has been stabbed to death. Threats are spoken about damaging people the author cares about. At the same time the authors wife (Maria Bello) have these notions that something bad will happen to Mort. So she calls him again and again.


The intensity of the acting and story developing was nice. I felt dragged into the movie universe fast. I've seen this movie a couple timese before. And will see it again. The movie is based upon Stephen King's story "Secret Window, Secret Garden". Have you read it?
