I just solved two of my major storage problems. See, the thing is that I forget about stuff that I don't see all the time.

I have loads of makeup. It used to be all mixed up in a huge makeup box, all the little packages rubbing against eachother, most of them long since forgotten.

Until I went to Muji (at the recommendation of a sales person at Face Stockholm). This lovely lovely little shop. (or corner of Ã…hlens) I found these lovely little acrylic storage units with drawers.
Two of them got to go home with me, one 3 drawer and one 5 drawer unit.

They solved all my problems! I got so happy that the next day, I went for yet another one for my earring collection. I can now see everything that I own. And stuff will not get chipped or sticky och yucky because of excess fumbling. Thank you, Muji!

The Notebook

Totally predictable but very very cute, the Notebook is a real gem in it's genre.

This movie will leave no eyes dry, great acting from Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling (and the rest of the cast). I love Geena Rowlands too. Ooh, and what I especially like is that they didn't follow the obvious path and made the "other guy" an especially bad one. Good job!!

The story? Pretty much the usual, at first it seems impossible but love conquers all.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Hiya. Long time no see. It is mainly because I work full time and have no time left for discovering new and wonderful things to recommend. That and I'm lazy as hell.

Anyways, I saw a refreshingly different movie yesterday that I think you should see too.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. (rated 7.9 on IMDB, everything above 7.0 is often very watchworthy.)

The movie is a murder story/comedy that takes place in Los Angeles, starring Robert Downey Jr and Val Kilmer. It's brutal and confusing but hysterical and beautiful. I especially like the pre-movie-credits (word?), beautifully illustrated and animated in black, white and orange. ( all right, I am a credit fetischist..)
