La Force Tranquille, by Romain Matteï, taken in the Zaanse Schans, an area of 18th and 19th century windmills and museums just outside Amsterdam
Windmills, which are used in the great plains of Holland and North Germany to supply the want of falling water, afford another instance of the action of velocity. The sails are driven by air in motion – by wind – Hermann von Helmholtz

Guys, I finally launched a beauty/lifestyle/style blog!
Most recent article I just finished writing is: best facial cleansers for all skin types, featuring Fresh, Innisfree, and more! I’ve also discussed the benefits of and how to use rosehip oil recently, and will be reviewing a Soap & Glory highlighter tomorrow.

EVERYTHING’S GOING TO BE OKAY
I’m going to write one of those novels you can’t
put down. The kind where you don’t know what’s
going to happen, and you want to know what’s
going to happen, so you sneak the book into the
bathroom to get a few pages in while your wife
thinks you’re brushing your teeth or showering,
or you take it to work and hope your workstation
walls are high enough to keep the book secret.

I wrote a tutorial for TasteTablet on a 5-minute glowing summer makeup routine – check it out!
Summer isn’t any time to spend an hour indoors doing your makeup – not with the siren call of hiking trails, beach waves, summer parties and more calling your name. Instead, it’s a time for a quick makeup routine that will leave you with glowing summer skin in five minutes before you head out the door. Let’s get started!
1. L’Oreal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. Apply this all over your face with your fingers. This is a dream under makeup – applies incredibly smoothly and sinks into the skin immediately. It adds extra radiance and keeps your makeup in place wonderfully. Add a little extra at points you want to highlight and it will give extra dewiness.
2. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer is widely considered a dupe for the high-end YSL Touche Éclat concealer. It’s silky and easy to apply but with good coverage, and definitely lightens and brightens the undereye area, possessing both concealer and highlighter qualities.
