rain filled saturday. 
tried to study.
drank coffee + tea.
experimented with cult favorite- mac- russian red.
flipped through magazines.
spent too much time on lagarconne.
made +ate a huge pot of homemade soup.
cuddled (don't you just love that word?)
dashed out in my trench + boots to replenish our organic espresso bean addiction.
spoke to my bestie who surprised me last week, but is away exploring.
awaiting her return from namibia in 2.5 weeks.
texted my bf all day while he was operated from morning till night.
dreamt of a trip to paris in the summer.
ate too many banana muffins.
read my books.
watched larrykinglive.

oh what a day!
it is still monsoon-ing.
time for bed.

I flipped through the same issue of Elle UK today :))

loving the lipstick colour.

gnarlyd said...

I liked reading Garden of Eden...I think it's one of Hemingway's stranger novels. Also, you have such cute handwriting! <3

Kathy said...

lovely quote!

Shen-Shen said...

Cuddling, (the word and the act) is lovely.

Morrizor said...

Lipstick colour - I like. It's a really pretty shade of red and it almost looks kind of orangy (is it really or only the tint of the photograph?). The quote is quite nice, it's good to have something, anything that gives us hope in the world of broken wishes and dreams we live in.


Delmy said...

Yes def say I WILL.
BTW you look great in red lipstick

Petra said...

Sounds so perfectly relaxing! You have inspired me to make a huge pot of soup! Yum.

Gorgeous lipstick as well. Is it bright, bright red, or more toned down? Photos seem to mess with the actual colours of lipstick, darn it!

deep_in_vogue said...

Great quote and I completely agree. You look gorgeous, Lisa. I love the red lips!

Isa said...

lisa, you´re glowing!

and I love that you write things down!
I´m completely crazy about notebooks, always carry up to four moleskins in my bag where I write down random things that I don´t want to let go.


Alice X said...

such beautiful quotes.

Anonymous said...

that red looks great on you! xoxo

leeselooks said...

AH. i do not deserve all your sweet words!!!

thanks so much guys.

morrizor: thanks girl! it definitely does look a tad orange-y in the pics, but i promise you in real life it is a much deeper red. my BF even said it looks so strange on film!

girlnextblog: thank you!! simple stuff- just cetaphil wash + drink heaps of water + try not to use too many products as it strips it of its natural oils/cells. our bodies are amazing things so i just let it do its thing. oh and SPF :)

boubou: you are too sweet, thank you.

anon (aka bestie) LOVE + MISS YOU!!!! be safe + thinking of you always.

birdy: you are too cute!!!! thanks my girl.

ryder: i actually don't like/use foundation! i think concealers are the best. i like/use a few different ones: laura mercier- secret camo. in shades # 2, ysl touche eclat in #2 and NARS concealer too! foundation for me, are too heavy and i like my skin to breath! I also love love love MAC Fix + (hydration spray). i tend to collect things but only use about 5 skin/make up items in total ;)

thanks loves.
have a beautiful week.



M. said...

That quote is so true, it's nice to get reminded of that sometimes, even though I know it too well.

That photo of you with the red lipstick is stunning, it suits you oh so good. Model looking you are.


ryder said...

tnx love,
your complexion is perfect!!!

♥ fashion chalet said...
