Another month, another memo. As I have very little time to do anything but work at the moment, it’s a rather short one*. That said, I have managed to sneak in some moments of reading, eating, drinking, screen-shopping (it’s like window-shopping, but online) ..
I’ve been trying to scale down my skincare purchases, mostly to make sure I only buy things I truly like but also because if I don’t, there will be no trip to Australia for me in December. I’m not on a total buying ban, however: I indicated in my last overvi..
If there is one good thing about my love for fancy skincare, it’s that when I come across something cheap that I like, you can be relatively certain it’s decent quality. Of course, it may still not be right for you, because your skin is different, but it’s u..
I had the idea for this post when I mentioned Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line to a make-up artist and turned out she had not heard of it. It’s obviously completely OK to not be up to date with another celebrity brand about a week after it’s launched. Most normal..
I own a lot of skincare and generally, I’m fine with that. I do, however, go through buy-purge cycles on a regular basis. More than spring, autumn is when I feel like organising my stash and getting rid of stuff. And then, inevitably, buying new stuff, becau..

Serge Lutens is in the process of revamping its export (read: cheaper and more accessible) perfume line. I will again refer you to this article for more details, as I do not have the space nor the energy to go through all of it here. What is relevant for our..
Well, technically it IS still summer. But yeah, I admit, I’m rather late with this. It’s what happens when you order stuff from Book Depository and the parcels arrive one-by-one over two weeks and then you go on holiday before you manage to gather them all. ..
Because I tend to be quite extroverted in the company of others, people are often surprised that I like to be alone. In fact I desperately need to be alone, to recharge and recover, and I love it. I’m not necessarily very good at it, though, as I shed all tr..
I haven’t had enough time to write the follow-up to my Summer 2017 non-fiction list, which doesn’t bode well for actually reading the books themselves. But I thought that even if I spend the whole summer working and and only gazing wistfully at my books, my ..
