Salvador Dalí exhibition

Salvador Dalí no CCBB

I had not visited the Salvador Dalí exhibition here in Rio, at CCBB, for a number of reasons. Among them, I must confess, is the fact that I’ve never been a big fan of the surrealist movement. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the importance of the movement (and I have enormous sympathy for the binding of Dalí with psychoanalysis), but his work never “caught” me, you know?

I had seen a lot of his work in museums I visited while travelling and was determined not to face the huge weekend queues at CCBB. But then I received an irresistible invitation for a guided visit to the exhibition this week, for guests only, and I had to check it out. I was surprised at how beautiful the exhibition is. If you have the opportunity to visit, I highly recommend it. Here’s a few pictures of what you’ll find there:

Beauty favorites – july

Beauty favorites - july 2014

These are a few of my july beauty favorites:

1. Natura Tododia Red Berries Deodorant Bath Moisturizer – If you want to get out of the shower with a super moisturized and fragrant skin, this is the product for you! It’s been a little cold over here lately, so I’ve been using this bath moisturizer for a few weeks now (this way I can get dressed as soon as possible when I get out of the shower). Amazing!

2. Mary Kay Gel Eyeliner – Love in the shape of an eyeliner. That is the best definition for this gel eyeliner. Waterproof and with a great texture, it comes with a mini brush that helps you apply the product with total accuracy, even for amateurs in the art of makeup (like myself)!

3. Mavala Eye-Lite - Eye Make-up Remover Gel - This make-up remover for the eye area was especially developed to remove waterproof products in this region, which is the most delicate part of the face. Just dampen a cotton pad with water before applying a small amount of the gel (as pictured), holding it on the eyes for a few moments, without rubbing. It’s very effective!

4. Depil Bella Camomile Body Gel - Enriched with extracts of comfrey, calendula and chamomile, this gel is a great after shaving option. It “calms” and hydrates the skin. It can also be used as a after-sun gel, post-manicure and aftershave (the boy uses and loves it!).

Hitchcock_love

Hitchcock_love

Hitchcock was really one of the best! A few of my favorite moments of the genius of suspense:

1. Yawning over Book of Birds. Obviously a reference to his movie The Birds (1963). The photo credit is © Bettmann/CORBIS.
2. Threatening or cute with that gun in his hand? ;)
3. On the set of Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955-1962), that featured several suspense short stories.
4. The meetings with french director François Truffaut yielded one of the most amazing interviews/book of all time.

Is there anything cuter than a macaron? Products inspired in these beauties – and in their beautiful packaging – are starting to appear, like these mini ceramic boxes (perfect to store little knick knacks) and these fragrant soaps, both from Two’s Company. Super lovely, don’t you think?
