Out of all the more cultural parts of our life, the only one where I feel truly at home at is literature. Ever since I can remember I was reading, lots and lots, and even though it isn´t nearly as much as it used to be, I consider myself a well-read person.
The others, like music and art, are things I enjoy, but don´t really know much about. So when I received the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette in a giveaway, it got me thinking.

Now I am a huge fan of black, but variations of black, like deep purple, blackened red or even the deepest, darkest green feel so mysterious. Perfect for the upcoming season, when the darkness slowly creeps in and the fog is covering the mountains in front of my window.

But for those of you that have a moment to spare and decide to stop by here at „Linda, Libra, Loca“, I tried to get a little impression of the Christmas decorations we put up around here, to get you into a festive mood.
And for all of you that need a little distraction, because waiting for the exchange of gifts is way too exciting, I have included a little list of my top blogposts of 2015, judged by Google Analytics. Read more
