There haven´t been that much stuff for the last two months that I liked so I thought I would put two together. My first favorite is, suprise suprise, a book. I´m a huge fan of Lucy Dillon, as you already probably know, so when I got this for my birthday I was really happy.
"A hundred pieces of me is about Gina Bellamy who is trying to start over after a few years she´d rather forget. She decides to only keep one hundred things and the rest can go, but then she has to come to term with her past and learning more about life and it´s harder than she´d ever imagined." This is a really heartwarming book about life and that everything may seem hard but you will get thourgh it. I love feel-good books and this one, as well as the other ones she wrote, is right up my alley.
My new Asos Sunglasses will be in another blog post so I won´t talk about them to much, but I had to mention them because I love them. For only £12 they´re so worth it, the shape, the color and the fit. Love them!
A problem a lot of people get when it´s cold outside is that our skin gets so dry it almost hurts and I have been trying everything to try to keep it some what hydrated, but it´s so hard. But a few months ago I got the Weleda Hydrating masque and hydrating cream and they have been a real game changer. They smell really herbal, which I love, and they feel smooth and hydrating on the skin. I use them about 2 times a week for 20-30 minutes and they really make a difference in how tight my skin feels. A plus is that they are really natural.
Maybelline color sensastional gloss in "Cashmere rose" is one i´ve heard a lot about, so finally I just bought it. I´m not really a gloss person, they are almost always really sticky and too glossy. But the maybelline one is the perfect everyday nude color with the right amount of glossy to it and it´s not sticky! The cute name is just a bonus, who´s not a sucker for adorable product names?!
Something everyone is always telling me is that I should use sun cream, so I did. My favorite so far is NIVEA anti age sun cream, it´s cheap and smells just right. Another great, and the most important, thing is that it´s not oily or makes my skin feel greasy. I have used it for a couple of weeks now and there´s no sun burn to talk about. I love the smell of sun cream, it just reminds me of summer and holidays to Turkey with my family.
Since I have been enjoying my other ones I thought I had to try the Real techniques Stippling brush, and it doesn´t dissapoint. It´s just as soft and high quality as the rest of them. I have tried it with foundation, cream blush and powder and it have applied everything nicely and without looking caky. So here´s another brush to add to your shopping list.
My last favorite this month is a movie, Pride. "U.K. gay activists work to help miners during their lengthy strike of the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984." (imdb.com) It´s a funny, emotional and amazing movie that made me cry of happiness and sadness. I didn´t expect to love it as much as I did, but the characters were so well thought out and the actors so good that I just fell head over heels. So even if you don´t think you´ll like it, give it a go because it´s actually life changing.
And that´s all for the last two months, hopefully i´ll have more beauty products next month, stay tuned!
