Make up and the tropics

I have always been a bit of a make-up junkie.
Probably because I hardly use it, who knows?
Make up and the tropics are two things that just doesn't work together.
Whatever you put on always seems to smear after short period of time so my once big makeup bag has now shrivelled up to a tiny one that consists of Zoom lash waterproof mascara from Mac, a Guerlain bronzer, lip-gloss' and this wonderful Long Wear Eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown in no.4 Sandy Gold

It also works great as a primer base for other eyeshadows.

Tried and tested in the tropics it stays on until the late hours of the night.

Magical days

 We've had pretty strange weather pattern this weeks.
Plenty of on-shore winds and rain.
Which has been really refreshing and nice but I guess by now we are all ready for off-shore's and decent swell again.

Early morning

My husband gets up when it is still dark out and walks or paddles out to the 'office' before the sun is up.
So there is no chance of knowing what the state will be like in his office before he actually gets there ready to take on the day. 

On this particular day the office was a no-go zone and had turned into a lake.
You know it is flat when John comes walking back in from the reef and the time has not even reached 06.30. No point in going out even for me then.

Afternoon sun

I still struggle a little with the heat down here.
I do my yoga first thing in the morning before the sun gets too hot otherwise it is like doing Bikram yoga.
Come midday it is too hot to do anything.
I sit still and the sweat is pouring out of my pores. 
I am so happy we've decided to live outside in down here and that we don't really have walls but bamboo so that the wind easily slip through and cools us down.
 I found these cool sparkly baskets whilst in Bali and they are great for storing stuff in. (Hairbands, nailpolish, lipglosses, -girly stuff).
The coral "tree" I found on the beach last year still functions as my ear-ring tree.
From 14.00 onwards it is possible to move around again so my favourite time of day is in the afternoon when the shades are growing longer,
 and the world seems to quiet down just a little.
Still I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Back home in my hometown in Norway on this day 03rd May 2013 they are experiencing snow.
Winter is coming......
