[Essence] City of Stars

While waiting for the spring collections to arrive at Alsterhaus, here is City of Stars, which was a Christmas gift from my daughter, who knows too well that I can’t resist night sky colours. Hence City of Stars is a dense glitter, packed with blue, turquoise and green microglitter bits.

[Essence] Be Passionate

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I was just happy about having two days off work; it’s been really hard during Christmastime, in addition to the grief. Of course …

I might be catching up with all those amazing nail colours next year. Until then here’s Be Passionate, which was a birthday gift by my daughter. It’s a blue-ish green metallic, hence pretty for Christmas too.

One more day at the bookshop tomorrow and then we will be spending a week in Lower Saxony.

[Essence] Hot Like Chilli

It’s getting quite busy because Christmas is approaching. I am still working at the bookshop and loving it, but since it’s a temp job, my contract ends at the end of the year and I haven’t found another job yet. copy-editing (or “my “job #1”) will become my primary job again, it seems …

I bought Hot Like Chilli in October (and took the photos quite some weeks ago). It’s a darker red, with a light cinnamon scent.
