Peanut Curry with Rice

Fall is coming! For me, the best thing about Fall is the oversized Sweater and curries. This one has the creaminess of coconut, the sweetness of peanut and a hint of spice from the curry paste.

Give Away – Indian Summer Look

I always wear black, nude, blue or white clothes. Only white is the summer color though. My effort to keep summer alive is simple: wearing it on my face. I don’t like heavy make up. Just a touch of color and freshness would be enough. I used the meteorites make-up from Guerlain. The light foundation with SPF (important!) and the very nice scented pearl powder. They are easy to apply, light on the skin and easy to remove as well. The packaging itself is very pretty. ❤ I will certainly re-use the packaging afterward. Win the KISS KISS Guerlain Lipstick by commenting on my recent Guerlain Instagram picture until October 6th 11am. For DE/AT/CH participants only. *in cooperation with flaconi.de
