Our very first home made brunch

Yesterday we hosted our first brunch in our new home! I got up very early to pick up freshly baked baguettes and croisssants. The sun was shining, the air was crispy and the city was beautiful all dressed up in Autumn colours. It was one of those moments were you are surprisingly happy, just because.

And they made my day, just as I knew they would. I needed a new blush (I always wear blush, can’t live without it) so I headed to the Benefit corner. A very nice lady tried some of their products on me and immediately I started to feel more relaxed and calmed down. In just five minutes I was leaving the store happy, revitalized and my faith in human nature was restored. I doubted a little bit, but finally I chose Hervana, a light beautiful blush. It has four different shades that combined make my cheeks rosy and enhance the effect of the lovely crispy cold Autumn air on my face. I love it! I would …
