Feel-Good Beauty Products

This cleansing balm has been a long loved product of mine! I use it daily as a start in my cleansing routine. The sorbet texture melts on the skin and dissolves makeup. It feels so refreshing and makes my skin look smoother. I always find this cleansing balm to be beautifying to my skin!

One of my most used makeup products last year was this intense pink highlighter. I usually wear it on top of a liquid highlighter but it also looks beautiful on its own. It's a warm looking, salient and sparkling color. The design is pretty nice too. 

I updated my makeup base products with this bb cream last month and use it daily. Already I believe I can see a good effect on my skin. My acne scars has vanished a little and my skin overall looks healthier! I like this shade because of the glow and natural color. The bb cream is easy to apply. 

Products: Banila Co Clean it Zero cleansing balm original, Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter nuance Wattabrat, Beauty Camilla Pihl BB Cream shade #1.


Lately I've had a holiday just outside Ă…lesund town. I stayed for about a week there. I went to an art exhibition in the town ,which was quite interesting! I took photos and read and walked around in the streets. I found a secondehand shop I've not visited before with a lot of books! I will go back to look for books another time. And certainly go see more art exhibitions. 

I had a nice forest walk while the snow stayed and the weather was good. One can never know how the weather will be there. 

Back in Oslo I've enjoyed reading and started drawing some again. 

I hope you've had a nice time lately! I already look forward to a new holiday! Where I do not know yet. Perhaps in city somewhere overseas.

Perfume Loveliness

I saw this perfume bottle with its lovely energising scent and new I had to have it! It is different from other fragrances and perfumes I've had. It is similar in one thing though. It feels calming. This one gives me an energising vibe too! It smells quite sweet.

This scent feels autumnal. I think I'll use it a lot.

Hand Bag Loveliness!

Today my blog focus is on this lovely hand bag! This salient item caught my eyes in a Monki shop recently. The shape, fabric and gold color is perfect! The color looks shiny in a pearly way. Which I love!

I just had to buy it. It is so cute and elegant. 

I like hand bags in this and similar shapes. I have one pink and brown hand bag in a similar shape and they are perfect for everyday use. And then I have this for nicer occations.

«Second Place» by Rachel Cusk. Just Read and Loved

This book is written like a long letter. It is from the main character who is a lonely woman. And to a person called Jeffers. 

The story happens where the lonely woman lives with her husband, their daughter and their daughters husband. 

The place itself seems harmonious. But the main character is very lonely. She invites a famous artist to a second place they have. The coming guest is a painter called L. 

His paintings is much adored by the woman. She hopes his artistic mind will be uplifting. But his behaviour is far from it. 

Strangely enough he decides to hide from her as her guest. And he talks to the others and paints them, but avoids her. 

At one point the lonely woman seems to feel like a stranger there. I thought L seemed a bit creepy. And I thought it weird that he was hiding so much.

The story had a sad ending especially for one person! 

The story is atmospheric and beautifully written! I liked the letter form! The main character is open about her feelings about L to Jeffers. And how this painter impacts her family! 

I wished to know more about L! The image I have of him is like a person from a fading dream one is struggeling to remember.

The story felt realistic, sad, and sometimes comical. It was catchy reading. And one of the best books I have read so far in 2021!

A Book You Can Read in One Day

Wish You Were Dead by Peter James

A family with friends have a holiday overseas which immediately begins bad. And soon it developes into a nightmare. It all happen so fast it feels like reading about a dream. The story is interesting, creepy and well constructed. It has a lot of atmosphere! 

The big nightmare begins soon after the tourists arrive their destination. A dark and faded house waits for them with an unfriendly owner welcoming them. She claims to own the house with her husband who is stuck to his wheelchair and unable to speak english. 

Cleo, the main character's wife finds the couple strange, just like the house. She does not want to enter. 

They decide to stay one night. Roy, the main character convince her of this! 

Roy tries to find out where their friend Jack is. He has not shown up as planned and is unable to reach them! Yet he is far closer then they imagine. Jack is in trouble.

He has been attacked and the rest of them is next! Because someone is out for revenge. Roy especially is hard to destroy! 

The attackers and Roy have like an equally strong desire to win this battle which made it for me quite interesting to read! 

I really liked this book! And it was so short one can read it in one day!

A Beautiful Everyday Blush


I have a new blush favorite. It is Korres Wild Rose Brightening Vibrant Color Blush in the shade Bright Coral. Once I saw it I thought this would be a perfect makeup staple. And I was right. I usually use this nowadays for some color on my cheeks. 

It has a lovely soft texture, perfect for application. And feels and looks luxurios. I don’t think I’ve had this kind of color before. I imagine I will use it a lot! It is so pretty!
