Saturday sushi and cinnamon buns

Today Hannes’ sister came to visit us. She lives about half-an-hour away by train. Unfortunately we had some bad luck with the weather and were caught in the rain, but we found shelter in my favorite sushi restaurant. We got warm with the help of their hot miso soup, and then enjoyed nine pieces of sushi each.
Later in the afternoon we went for a fika at a modern but old-fashioned bakery/café. Everyone agreed that their cinnamon buns were among the best we’d ever tried.

Surprise from the boyfriend

http://www.swedishloveaffair.com/wp-content/uploads/bag111.jpg

I just got some really exciting news from Hannes!

In a little more than a month he is going to Paris for his work, but he’s taking some days extra there and, the best part, he’s bringing me along!! So it means that very soon I’ll be in Paris again, what a nice surprise!

So now I’m checking out your Paris tips from this old post – again! More tips are welcome, though.

Friday

I’ve been so busy this week with school work and other things, that I was a bit surprised when I realized it’s Friday already. This weekend there’s going to be a huge party in one of my neighbours’ flat. According to the party’s Facebook page, there’s going to be over one hundred guests attending. I haven’t decided yet whether to join the party or maybe just go to a club.

Horrible person

I’m such a horrible person in the morning! Greger is basically the only one I’m happy to see when I wake up.

DIY event: making your own pins

Recently I’ve been to an event where all the guests were encouraged to make their own pins.
There were a lot of magazines and comic books where you could find a picture you like.

Then you had to cut out the image.

After that you needed to go to the guy with the pin making machine, so he would press your pin.

And then the pin is done!

You could make as many as you wanted!

Here are all mine:

Meet me at the corner

I’ve been listening a lot to Red Hot Chili Peppers lately. They’re one of my all-time favorite bands, but it’s just now that I’ve really gotten into their latest album I’m with you.
It’s their first album since guitarist John Frusciante left the band, and at first I was doubtful whether their music could uphold the same quality without him. But now I must admit that their replacement, Josh Klinghoffer, is doing a terrific job. He also does the backing vocals on I’m with you, and it just wouldn’t have been as good an album without him.

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat SPF 19 foundation

Normally I’m not a foundation kind of girl. On daily basis I simply use concealer and powder. However, the hype about the new YSL foundation Le Teint Touche Eclat SPF19 hasn’t passed me by! I’m a big fan of their iconic Touche Eclat illuminator, and when I heard about their new foundation with similar properties I knew I had to have it.

I must say, there are almost no negative reviews on this product. Unlike other foundations, Le Teint Touche Eclat contains no powders, so the finish is unbelievably natural and dewy, and the foundation itself is undetectable on the skin!

The color range is very broad, from very pale to dark, so I think everyone can find a shade to match their skin tone. The neutral beige shades are marked with B, the ones with yellow/golden undertones are BD and the rosy ones are BR.
I tried several shades before making up my mind and ended up buying BD20, which was a perfect match for my skin.

I only apply foundation on the areas where I feel I need to even out my skin tone, like around my nose and on my chin. I buff it in with my Sigma F80 brush and I don’t apply any powder on top, since I want to retain the subtle “lit from within” finish this foundation gives to my skin.

I honestly think Le Teint Touche Eclat is a unique product on the beauty market right now, and if you’re looking for a nice foundation I think you should give it a try.

I bought mine at feelunique.com during their summer sale (which has unfortunately ended by now, but they still have it in stock at a reasonable price of £28), and they also have free worldwide delivery.
