Now that fall is approaching in giant steps, I need to remind myself of the beautiful sunny days when I was still complaining about the heat. So here is my memory of the hottest day this summer.
I decided to wear a combination of blue and blue, picking ANNY Blue Hypnosis (middle and ring finger) and KIKO 644 (rest). I adore the strikingly vivid blue of Blue Hypnosis! How beautiful!
Both are, obviously, textured polishes. They dry gritty (surprise!), but they aren’t of the boring sandpaper kind, but of the awesome glittery kind. Two coats were fully sufficient.
While this may not be the perfect forum to discuss Coca-Cola’s advertising strategy, I must nevertheless say that I’m mighty impressed by it. The customized coke cans aside (“Share your coke with Caroline”), the pre-printed coke cans were strategically placed. For example, in the mountain area, you could find coke cans saying “Share your coke with your summiteer” or “Share your coke with your Dirndl” (where as Dirndl means both girl and the traditional Austrian dress). My brothers decided to share their coke with me.
I was extremely amused to find out that my newly acquired summer dress has the same color as ANNY Blue Hypnosis.
It’s incredibly short for my taste, but to my defense, I was just going down to the lake. In case you were wondering, I don’t usually change color in the sun, unless it’s from snowwhite to frog-in-the-blender. I wish that was different!
In any case, now that I look at my pictures, I am looking forward to Indian Summer. Even though I’m still searching for the perfect long cardigan that won’t look as if I’m wearing my bathrobe. If you have any suggestions, I’d be glad.
What I’ll miss the most about summer though are the flowers. For now, I’ll exchange them for colorful leaves, but I know that when the first snow falls, I’ll miss the colors that summer provides.
