The last three… movies

Os três últimos filmes

Good People (dir. Henrik Ruben Genz, 2014)

A couple discovers a bag full of money after the death of their tenant and decide to keep it to pay debts. OF COURSE the thief who stole to money targets the couple and goes after the bag. I feel like I’ve seen this same movie a million times. Not even the amazing Omar Sy saves this one. Watch the trailer.

The ABCs of Death (27 directors, 2012)

26 short stories, each representing a letter of the alphabet (for example: A for Apocalypse), directed by 27 different people, each one with their own view on death. As always happens in this kind of movie, some chapters are great and others are really terrible. But I thought it was appropriate and watched on Halloween. ;) Watch the trailer.

Two Weeks in September (À Coeur Joie, dir. Serge Bourguignon, 1967)

Brigitte Bardot plays Cecile, a young model divided between a steady (and a little boring) relationship and a new passion, full of excitement. The scenes of Cecile working as a model are hilarious; it’s amazing how the fashion world has changed radically over the years. And Bardot, always beautiful! Watch the trailer.

Beauty favorites – october

Beauty favorites - october 2014

These are a few of my october beauty favorites:

1. Natura Creamy Fennel Bar Soap – I’m not a huge fan of fennel in my kitchen, but I love these amazing soaps that have a lovely sweet frangrance. According to the brand, this soap retrieves the protective layer of the skin 75% faster, which is a bonus! 

2. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara – This has been my go-to mascara for quite some time. It has a plush volumizing formula that gives extreme volume and beautifully defined lashes (I avoid applying too many layers, so it doesn’t look artificial). It also has an impressive durability, it’s the kind that only comes off with a very good makeup remover. 

3. Matrix Biolage Advanced Force Fiber – This line was designed to strengthen weak, fragile hair and it’s formulated with Intra-Cylane and Bamboo, that add resiliency and condition the cuticle. I feel that my hair is a lot stronger (and shinier) since I started using it!

4. Avène Cleanance Gel – This one is an old favorite, I always go back to it when I can. This soapless cleanser, specially suitable for oily and acne prone skin, eliminates impurities and excess sebum without stripping the skin. I love to use it at night, since it has a soothing effect.

5. Dermage Collagen Age Sérum – Who needs a collagen booster? I know I do! This is a concentrated serum that stimulates the natural production of collagen and has a booster action. In other words, the product reduces fine lines, superficial wrinkles and improves skin texture and tone. It is formulated for all ages and skin types. Yay!
