The last three… movies

Os três últimos filmes: The Eclipse + Le Capital + Stuck in Love

The Eclipse (dir. Conor McPherson, 2009)

During a literary festival in Cobh, a seaside Irish town, a widower starts to receive very strange visitors at home. The novelist Lena Morelle, a specialist in ghost stories, arrives in town for the festival and gets involved in the case. It’s not a typical horror story, but it does have a few good scares and suspenseful moments. An Cobh is such a beautiful (and a little creepy) place, I want to visit someday… Watch the trailer.

Capital (Le Capital, dir. Costa-Gavras, 2012)

Let’s just say that this movie makes The Wolf of Wall Street look like a finance movie for dummies. And Gad Elmaleh as the unscrupulous CEO Marc Tourneuil is amazing: zero cliché, zero affectation. Simply wonderful. And, as the movie ends, we get a little depressed, knowing that the world is in the hands of these bankers. Watch the trailer.

Stuck in Love (dir. Josh Boone, 2012)

One of those movies that looks at love from many angles and from the point of view of several generations of the same family. Not a great movie (really!), but I can point out that I found interesting to see a family of writers, each with their literary references. It made me want to grab a book, more than finish watching the movie, to be honest. Watch the trailer.

Beauty favorites – june

Beauty favorites - june 2014

These are a few of my june beauty favorites:

1. Cless Kit Charming Mini Gloss Collection -This mini kit is very handy, especially if you’re going on a weekend trip, or to leave it in your gym bag, for example. It has a shampoo, a conditioner (both with 120ml) + a gloss spray. This line deeply moisturizes the hair and helps restore its fibers.

2. Yenzah ProVida Batana Oil – I think everyone know the Batana Oil by its most “famous” name: Ojon Oil. The fragrance is pretty amazing! I rub a few drops in my hands and apply it to my hair. You can also mix a little bit of the oil in your favorite hair moisturizer, for a killer hydration.

3. Yenzah Take it Off – Express Nail Polish Remover – I’m completely obsessed with this express nail polish remover, in the form of a sponge. It removes even the darkest nail polish (you can see how the magic works in this video). It also has no parabens or acetone, which means no dry nails. Yay!

4. Dermage Highlight Maxi – On one side, a eyebrow pencil. On the other, a eye illuminator. I can no longer live without this amazing duo. I’ve tried everything to fix my crazy-looking eyebrows, but while I can’t find the perfect definitive solution, I stick to this product right here!

Are you a DIY fan? Even if you’re not all that into it, I’m sure you won’t resist this one: how about making one of these cute milk bags at home?

The project is Lisa Gachet‘s, responsible for the lovely Make my lemonade blog, and you can check out the tutorial (with pics!) here. It seems a little complicated, but I’m sure all my crafty readers can handle it.  \o/

Bonnard, by Anagrama

BonnardBonnardBonnardBonnardBonnard

I’m really impressed with Bonnard‘s branding, created by design agency Anagrama. Bonnard is a mexican french-inspired tea and confectionary shop. The brand’s distinct brush strokes and color selection are based on Pierre Bonnard‘s postimpressionist paintings.

The same agency also designed this beautiful restaurant!
