HIGHLIGHTS #18

I’m enjoying summer, though I’m a little bummed that it’s been muggy the past few days. I’m worried about my tomato plants – it’s been so windy they’re clinging on for dear life! Aside from my plant worries, I’m in such a pinterest phase, I can’t stop looking at ancient jewellery and moroccan rugs and japanese packaging design. Here are some highlights – it’s kind of a low point in...

HIGHLIGHTS #15

It’s March, and I’m itching for spring which shows no sign of appearing. If I could see a crocus or snowdrop I might find hope, but so far there’s nothing. At least we can all find comfort in the fact that the sun now rises at an appropriate hour – day and night are no longer diffuse and abstract.

Daisy Beauty Expo 2018 – Trends, Tendencies & Impressions

Warning: This is a long, long, LONG post with bad photos. (if you want good photos, read Molkan’s post) Enjoy.

The expo is a two-day beauty bonanza featuring a day of presentations from brands and experts followed...

I’m starting to feel a little better, and I’m excited for the coming year which I think...

HIGHLIGHTS #10

Happy October! Fall is upon us, dark lipstick is socially acceptable again, and these are the Highlights. This piece on the sheet mask selfie trend is hilarious and kind of true! I probably won’t taking these selfies, to be honest, because they are kind of fun… but… I’ll be thinking about this. Makeup icon Kevyn Aucoin’s life, impact and illness. I’m indeed very anxious to see the documentary, and also to...

Weekend, #3 – belated!

Swedish MUA Linda Hallberg announces her own brand of multi-use cosmetics. I think multi-use products are a great concept – original and contemporary. I’m excited to try it! Herbivore Botanicals has been picked up by mainstream retailers. I’m not a big fan of ‘natural’ cosmetics, but I do love the sophisticated packaging. Korean beauty brand Tony Moly has launched a collab with Pokémon, featuring hand cream, sheet masks, cushion blushes...
