Book Pick. The Valley of Fear

  The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I'm pretty excited about this book. I liked the radio theatre version on NRK a lot! In the radio theatre a lot was missing. So reading it will be good. :) 

I've earlier read the first chapters and here is what happens. The story begins with a tricky murder case and the police need help. Sherlock Holmes and doctor Watson come to the crime scene the next day. They try to solve what's happened to the dead man found with strange clues on and around his body. Dead in his own home. There is the mysterious burned mark on his body, his wedding ring missing, muddy boot marks behind a curtain. And a blood mark on the window sill. To mention some things. And of course the strange gun.

The house itself is strange. To come and leave one must use the house bridge. The ones inside opens and closes it every day with no exception (I think). The fact that the house is difficult to enter shows that the murder was strongly motivated. I look forward to read more :)
Already there are many details. But the author presents them well.

My Beauty Bag Staples

This is the beauty stash I always have in my beauty bag. Lipbalms. I never go anywhere without one. My favourite is the Blistex Daily Lip Conditioner as it is super soothing and nice to use under lipliners. On days I wear makeup I always wear a honey coloured blush. I wear one from Seventeen. Called Bashful. On me it looks more like a soft bronzer. I like this more then my Soap & Glory Solar Powder because this is softer and warmer. 

On eyes I like to wear a subtle shimmery beige colour from Clinique. This looks good with any other makeup and brightens up the eye area. It's slightly creamy with a fresh more dewy look. I can't get enough of this. It's so pretty.

I have a couple constant Mac makeup favourites here too. The Rosy Rim lipliner in pastel pink and the Pure Zen lipstick in pastel peach. These two bring a pop of colour to my makeup. So does the dark purple lipgloss from Isadora. The pigmentation of these lip products is great!  

What are your beauty staples?
