An apology and an ode to Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream

First of all, sorry for not writing anything the last months. I'd love to have a good excuse but I guess I was just lazy. I hope you forgive me that.
So now to the greatest cosmetic invention ever: Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream.
For those who don't know this magic cream, here a picture and of course the history of the Eight Hour Cream:

Created in 1930 by Elizabeth Arden to soothe and protect skin, it was an instant and overwhelming success. Even its legendary name is said to have come about in a remarkable way. As the story goes a loyal client used it to treat her child's skinned knee and "eight hours later" the skin looked "all better".

Maybe some of you know the movie "My big fat greek wedding"? Where Michael Constantine performs Toulas father Gus Portokalos. Gus has his own miracle cure: Windex. He spray's it on every little injury even on simple pimples and on the next day, they're gone. Well practically it is the same with the Eight Hour Cream.
Last week my boyfriend had a really bad cold and as some of you might know, if you blow your nose frequently enough, the sensetive skin between lips and nose gets damaged. He just wanted to put on a normal skin cream, but I screamed an jumped upon him and greased his face with the Eight Hour Cream. Et voilá eight hours later it was better. Since then I am an absolute freak about it.

Also it smells really good and the lip balm is in a soft pink tone.

So to all of you out there: Eight Hour Cream by Elizabeth Arden (now in the vintage edition of 1960)

So second Post for you, and no I am not going to write about the Oscars today. The reason, although i saw them yesterday and took notes about the dresses, everybody will write about them and it is defenitely not interessting reading ten times the same statement to Nicole Kidmans outfit (which was horrible btw).
So I am going to tell you something about my academic studies. I am studying History of Arts, and it is quite interessting but sometimes it really bores me. Especially today. Tomorrow I have a really big exam on architecture and I really can't concentrate. Sure it is amazing how Michelangelo made a library in times of Manirism withe the whole contrast in the two rooms. I am talking here of the "Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana" in Florence.
Here it is. Eventhough i don't like to learn for the exam it is interessting. But I like sculptures better. Well I better get going but I promise the next post will be about fashion and not about me studying (:

xoxo May

My very first time

So, I started this Blog to share my passion for art and fashion with you. I will write about things I like and dislike and sometimes even upload pictures. I will also have some collaborations with my friend Jay.
Just that you know what's upcoming, my style is elegant but individual. I like mixing different styles and designers. Same with my favoured art and artists.
Hopefully I succeed in writing at least once a week. If I don't write please admonish me.

xoxo May
