Meet my boyfriend!

Ok, so I am in love.
In love with a watch like I have never been before.
Does it make sense?
Of course, of course-not!
When did anyone fell in love with sense?

It is a fine specimen of elegance.

Starting at 11.400 euros, it costs as much as a good rolling car. 
Maybe I shall not mind waiting, 
and maybe I shall have a boyfriend second or even third hand,
and love every tick-tock of it!

On red lipstick

Has it really been that long since I last posted?
Yes it has!
And yet, here I am with a post about lipstick.
This is the second time in my life that I am wearing red lipstick. As in bright-red-lipstick.

I remember Paloma Picasso marketing her signature red lipstick saying that there is a red for every woman. And now, as I am moving up on the 40something scale, I begin to grasp what she says. Red means feminine, means assertive, means strong, means: "I know what I'm talking about".

I am currently wearing Estee Lauder's #120 irrepressible.
It is a racecourse red when applied, rather that the burgundy it looks like on the tube. And it is rather very matte. I keep the all red for after work. For worktime I top it with Clinique's chubby stick intense in 06 roomiest rose which gives a sweeter result on the strong basis. Please note when using red, pencil is a must! I am using Estee Lauder's nr. 7 red.

And here is a very useful video on how to aplly red lipstick!

See you later!

All Things Turtle: Kentucky Turtle Trail

Trail marker for the Sheltowee Trace trail in Kentucky. Sheltowee was the name given to Daniel Boone by the Shawnee Indians and means “Big Turtle”. This is my most favorite trail marker and makes me smile whenever I pass it. No other animal best describes my hiking style than a turtle, walking slow and low with a bulging pack on my back through the forest.

Autumn Days Welcome

And so, we stepped into Autumn
First fallen leaves
starting already in August
(these from my vacation in Crete, this past summer)

Warm Up

{ Posie Gets Cozy }

{ Habitually Chic }

Lovely soups and stews
(that no-one eats in my household)

Those fine September nights, when the dew dropped on my face and I licked it to get drunk.”

— A.Rimbaud

A sense of wild 
That calls for a life RUSTIC and PRIMITIVE

Time to set up home, cuddle and domesticate

Time to reap
to harvest 
Life's  Joys

Take the scenic route 
and live...
