I love seeing what my friends are reading, so I thought I’d share the books which are on my wish list as well. But not just any books but the ones which are at least somehow related to the topic of the website. I don’t read popular literature or “chick (the word I actually hate) lit” so not sure how interesting my usual picks would be.
Here we go:
- Perfumes: The Guide 2018 by Turin and Sanchez (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve actually had this book but lost it while moving somehow so I have to pick up a new copy, very unimpressed about it. It’s a must for anyone who wants to understand perfume better.
- In Paris: 20 Women on Life in the City of Light Book (Amazon and Amazon UK). This looks like a beautiful and inspiring book to have. While I am not into all the “influencer” thing, I am hoping to enjoy it.
When it comes to films and series, there are usually a lot of “Steal Her Style” features where the authors suggest what pieces you could buy to get a similar look to your favourte character, should you chose to do so.
But there are not enough articles which focus on beauty or makeup looks, if you ask me. And that is what I always pay attention to when I watch films/series. I actually wrote about the beauty elements of Gossip Girl, as well as Blair Waldorf‘s wedding makeup and Sex and The City already.
I also had a breakdown of the Pan Am looks straight from the Make-Up Artist.
So today I’d like to share about the makeup from the Big Little Lies. Here are the screens from the show when Celeste Wright was getting ready in
I am a big Cowshed fan, as you can tell by some of my reviews, and I would like to talk about two products which I’ve used up recently. They are Gorgeous and Knackered Cows body lotions.
But first of all, I’d like to mention that Cowshed recently had a relaunch (see here): they had a re-design of their packaging which now look more sophisticated and chic but they also changed their cheeky names. While I do get that maybe not everyone would appreciate “Horny Cow” name, for example, I sure did, and loved the playfulness of the line. That was something that made them unique and cool.
Here is what we’ve got now (besides the two I’ve got here):
Here are a few new launches that caught my attention recently. They are from Hourglass, Chanel and theBalm, three brands I really love.
When I was placing an order on a new eye brow pencil (here), I was wishing for a slim version of the Hourglass eye brow pencil, and guess what? They just launched Arch Brow Micro-Sculpting Pencils ($28) in 9 shades. The tip is 1.4mm which makes it ultra precise.
There are also 4 new shades of the Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow, $29 (here): Rapture (cranberry), Vivid (olive), Burnish ( deep bronze) and Ray ( deep champagne). And I really love the look of Rapture.
Finally, the brand
This is easily one of the best shampoos I have ever used. And everything is simply amazing about it. Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Shampoo is just as good, as it gets, without being the most expensive shampoo out there.
Not gonna lie, I’ve wanted it mostly because it is a rose shampoo. Shocking, right? I also usually go for volumising ranges, so rose + volume was an easy choice.
As I am writing this review, I have the product left only for one wash which makes me devastated. The formula, as the name suggests, is delicate and gentle. The scent is incredible, it is not too strong, as well. It’s a
