My Birthday Wish List

I am not someone who is obsessed with [my] Birthday, and tell everyone about it. But since friends and family keep asking me what I want, it made sense to make a list, and share some of the things with you, too. I have chosen to post the items that may be of interest to you.  Maybe it will inspire you to get these things for yourself, or maybe you are just curious about what I want. I know I am always curious to see all those wish lists.

New Phone. I mainly use my phone for calling or sending messages, and  I use my iPad mini for everything else on the go. This is why I like phones like  Nokia and Blackberry qwerty. My F&F find it to be a really weird thing. But it is not gonna change, I would like a new phone like that, too.

I also need a new pair of red Dr Martens. I have been wearing Doc’s shoes for as long, as I remember. My black pair is still going strong but the red ones need a replacement.

Something To Read

I am an avid reader, so my list could be ridiculously long but I have chosen to post  only the relevant [for the website] items.  And I still don’t have any of these books yet.

Gentlewoman Magazine (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I haven’t read magazines in ages but this one seems like the one I would like.

Speaking of the gentlewomen, I would like the The New Garconne: How to Be a Modern Gentlewoman book   ( Amazon and Amazon UK) very much.

Round to Ours Setting the Mood and Cooking the Food Menus for Every Gathering (Amazon and Amazon UK), an amazing cook book, and tips on how to throw a great party.

Makeup4all Turns 8!

It’s hard to believe that Makeup4all Turned 8 years on the 14th of February! I never thought I would still have it after such a long time. I would really love to thank all of you for taking your time, and reading it. I have actually decided to celebrate yesterday, and it was the most wonderful day!

If you want to know how it all started and

Books #CurrentlyReading

Last time I’ve posted my list of  books to read  was back in 2013, so it is definitely time for an update. I do post about books I am reading on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest thought, if you are interested.

Before we start, I just want to mention that I did a feature about the beauty books every girl (interested in the subject, obviously) should read.

Books To Read List October 2015 Makeup4all

So here are nine books that I plan on reading in the near future. I already have them all, except the last one which is not out yet (but I have it on pre-order).

1. Franz Kafka The Trial.

Don’t know how it happened but somehow I never read this book.

2. François Mauriac. The Desert Of Love.

Mauriac was a favourite author of my literature professor from university, and that is a very high recommendation for me. Had this book on my “to read” list for ages now.

3. Frank McCourt. Angela’s Ashes.

I read

I am Back!

I am back!

South Africa jewelry and body lotion

I am very sorry for the lack of the updates in the last two weeks, I was away on a holiday and did not have time to pre-schedule the features for each day before leaving, as I usually do. I actually had a laptop with me to write some but, to be honest, I had so much going on that it wasn’t an option. Moreover,

Summer Style Must Have: Denim Shorts

I don’t  write about style/fashion, as I don’t really follow the trends and usually wear very simple clothes, and a lot of black… (Here is my Pinterest “style” board )

But I thought it was worth mentioning my summer essential – denim shorts. I have been pretty much living in this pair. They go on so well with everything, and by everything I mean:  black, white, red, burgundy and stripy t-shirts and tank-tops.
