Strawberry & Cream

This is not exactly a makeup post :-P This month some of my favourite music makers have come out with new albums: Phoenix, "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix"; Paolo Nutini, "Sunny Side Up" and Moby, "Wait for Me". Check them out!

I've been on a diet for a couple of weeks, and am determined to change the way I eat: cutting carbs and meat down to a minimum. Not exactly a meat lover to begin with, cutting meat hasn't made a a real difference, but I'd have fish or chicken once in a while. As to carbs, well, that takes some will power!
To reward myself though, I got the new Haagen-Dazs fruit collection, lol. The ice-cream girl chatted me up in the freezer aisle (yes, you're allowed to laugh) and asked where I was from (why do I still get that question every day?!) so she sold me on the little cups of goodness.

While I wait for the ice-cream to soften up, a friend who came back from a trip in Paris brought me some goodies: a cherry blossom box from L'Occitane and a Make Up For Ever eye shadow I asked for, in shade 111.
This is really how dark the colour is. I'm using this as blush, with the lightest possible application. I think this is a unique colour!The cherry blossom kit has a shower & bath gel, pearl lotion and a solid perfume. The scent is quite candy-like :-P
A few more weeks till a brand new home and Seattle. Courage and faith, Cheryl, courage and faith.

oh my... Haagen-Dazs in any flavor is SIN. I'm glad your "ice cream girl" talked you into getting them.

and ooo L'occitane, that's something new I've never seen yet -- I usually get the Lavendar line of lotions, amazing SCENT!

Hi Cheryl! Finally got a TIM internet pen, so I can blog-read while I'm at the sea! Not so bad heat-wise here, went for a "giro" in Porto Rotondo today and my boy requested frappè so I got us a cup of fiordilatte frappè for....7euros!!! Can u imagine? Not even sitting down, not even in a shiny Lalique glass, no, just a plain paper cup!! Oh, well, at least it tasted good!! Take care, love, Anna
