Things We Love for Spring | 27.02.16

“You deserve a love who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.

You deserve a love who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.

You deserve a love who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.

You deserve a love who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.

You deserve a love who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry” —Frida Kahlo

Skincare Layering Step: Serums

I am not usually interested in what is new in the beauty market, but would rather know everything about what is best.
