Lovely leather: Make Up For Ever Lovely Leather (114) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) Review & Swatches


Meet the Maker: Lovely Leather Jewelry

Although Mindy Rohr’s background is in elementary and special education, like many makers, her heart felt a calling to create. After becoming a stay-at-home mom a few years ago, Rohr started playing around with leather pieces to make earrings while her kids napped.

“I’ve always loved statement earrings and felt like I could walk out of the house if I have a great pair of earrings on,” says Rohr, who lives in Wausau.

Rohr decided to try her hand at creating jewelry, so she took her leather pieces and started watching videos of other makers, reading articles and doing plain old trial and error to see what worked. She started making earrings for friends for gifts and by request.

In 2017, she founded Adorned Accents to create the earrings, necklaces and bracelets she loved to make. Rohr uses leather as her main material, as well as brass and polymer clay for accent pieces. Items have a minimalist, boho bent with earrings shaped like petals and leaves, dangly tassels and simple brass hoops with leather half-circle details.

“[My] aesthetic is an eclectic mix of pieces that vary from season to season with every piece going back to meeting our lightweight, effortless criteria. We gather inspiration from natural forms and shapes through experimenting with different jewelry findings to create pieces that range from relaxed classic to feminine boho to understated romantic,” says Rohr.

Adorned Accents is sold on Etsy as well as local maker markets in the area (find her next at the Tansy Hill Barn Bazaar in Wausau on May 18). Rohr also started working with The Local in downtown Wausau (see right), which has been a great outlet for her work. Eventually, Rohr wants to expand the business as well as incorporate charitable projects into her portfolio. Recently she created a custom leather bracelet with part of the proceeds going to a local family whose little girl had therapy needs.

“I love knowing that women can wear these pieces and feel unique and special wearing handmade jewelry,” says Rohr. “I want them to walk away with a piece that they can quickly throw on and if that’s [one of] the only things they got to do that day to get ready was throw on a pair of earrings—they can still feel beautiful.”

Lovely in Leather – Celebrity Style Guide

Despite its moto/rocker history, leather has taken a feminine turn this year. So feminine, in fact, that these leather pieces can even be called lovely. Shearling and fur finishes make leather quite cozy, while warm neutral colors play up your complexion rather than drain it. Skinny leather pants, crops, and shorts go uptown with chunky knits and comfy cardigans. Even leather dresses are remade into office-appropriate sheaths and youthful, Taylor Swift-worthy frocks. Holiday ready as well, metallic leather skirts and leather-trimmed tuxedo blazers round out our lovely leather choices for this season:

1. Helmut Lang Leather Jacket with Shearling Collar ($1520)
Who knew leather could be so cozy? This jacket has the traditional moto details (an asymmetrical front zip, cuff zippers, and a slim body-skimming fit) paired with an over-sized shearling collar in a warm, neutral stone color. Wear anywhere.

2. Vanessa Bruno Athe’ Cropped Leather Skinny Pant ($520)
Channeling a mod Audrey Hepburn, these cropped leather pants go classic when paired with flats and a sweet cardi. Of course, they are also night-on-the-town appropriate when paired with heels. Cropped length with a skinny leg and 5-pocket styling.

3. Rachel Roy Sleeveless Dress with Leather Yoke ($498)
Leather for the office? Yes, please. This sleek crepe dress has a chic leather yoke atop always-appropriate cap sleeves and a knee-length hem. An exposed back zipper and pleating make this dress’s exit as exciting as its entrance.

4. Tibi High Waisted Leather Shorts ($550)
No 2011 leather piece is complete without a nod to the leather short. More mod than a mini, this short can be paired with tights and a chunky knit by day or heels and a blazer by night. High-waisted cut with front slant pockets and back welt pockets. Their rich reddish-brown leather complements every thing from basic black to creamy winter white.

5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Limelight Metallic Leather Skirt ($798)
Metallic…leather…pencil skirt? An unexpected combination of rocker-inspired elements gives this traditional, tie-waisted pencil skirt a stunning makeover. Pair with booties and a chunky knit for office, heels and holiday color for party.

6. TIBI Tuxedo Jacket ($497)
Holiday essential. Work this creamy white tux jacket for any occasion with its crisp, classic lines and mod, black leather lapels. Pair with jeans for drinks with the girls, a black pencil skirt for work, or a sequin tank and wide legged trouser to ring in 2012.

7. Alice + Olivia Tamira Leather Bustier Dress ($595)
Leather gets girly with this kicky cocktail dress. The combination of mod leather and romantic tulle is an eye-catching combo, perfectly capturing the festive spirit of the season. Corset bodice with cutout back and full, kick-up-your-heels skirt.

Here are ​my best 3rd wedding anniversary gift ideas ​for all budgets. Hopefully you are able to choose the perfect gift ​for your beloved on their third marriage anniversary.


Leather Anniversary Gifts For Her

1. Leather Ballet Flats

by Tieks

My ​most favorite leather gift to give​ has to be a pair of Tieks flats.  If your lady didn’t ​wear them on ​her big day, now is a good time to gift a pair. Made of the finest Italian leather, and taking 3 days and over 150 steps to make one pair, these leather shoes ​are the perfect flats to wear all day, every day.

2. Leather Earrings

by AvaGraceSouthern

If your budget is a little smaller and you just want to give a token leather gift, think about leather jewelry. There are all sorts ​to wade through, but we love these cute double layered metallic leather leaf earrings in shades of gold.

3. Leather Poof

​by Wayfair

Any interior designer lovers out there?

I had one of these leather ottoman’s growing up and can still remember it as a comforting companion for my feet.

If your loved one is looking for that global inspiration to complete a room, this distinctive Moroccan leather pouf ​could be the perfect finishing touch.

4. Personalized Leather Tray

Most people take their rings off every night before bed, but have nowhere to put them.

 So why not give a beautifully personalized genuine leather tray to store all ​your jewelry bits and bobs ​to thoughtfully solve this problem.

5. Leather Designer Handbag

​by Coach

From Coach and Kate Spade to Tory Burch and Rebecca Minkoff, a leather designer handbag is not only a practical gift it is very functional as well.

Of course, updating ​an everyday purse makes for a satisfying shopping trip. Saving up to buy that affordable luxury designer handbag is very exciting, but surprising ​your loved one with ​a coveted dream designer handbag​ will just blow her out of the water.

It’s your 3rd anniversary — kind of a big deal. Surprise her by ​spending a little extra and splurge on ​that dream leather hand bag.

6. Leather Gloves / Jacket

by Ted Baker & Nordstrom

With fall and winter ​just around the corner, a pair of lovely leather gloves are always good to have on standby. We chose the luxury leather brand Dents because of their quality and British heritage dating as far back as 1777.

Or opt for this leather moto jacket for a look that never goes out of style.

9. Bouquet of Sunflowers

by The Bouqs

Freshly cut flowers are always a good idea. Add some sunshine into your day with a bright bouquet of sunflowers. Not only are they the official flower for your third year, they make a robust and vibrant addition to your home. It’s tough to be in a bad mood around sunflowers.

10. Moonstone Studs

by AdmantaeDesigns

Okay, this set of earrings has won my heart for the cutest set of stud earrings to ever be born!

Delicate little moonstone moons are a wonderful choice to symbolize love and admiration. Not only will she have a set of adorable earrings to add to her collection, she will always remember year three when she puts them on.

Another Lovely Leather Sofa – Reviewing The Article Cigar

If you know me and have followed me for awhile, you know that I am a major Article fan. I have several pieces from them and have loved each and every one. Not to mention, I’ve sourced dozens of chairs, sofas, tables, you name it, for clients and have never had a complaint. So, it’s no surprise that I have yet another piece from them, right?! This time around I’m talking all about another lovely leather sofa – the Article Cigar sofa.

Ok, so right off the bat, you might be wondering, but what about the Sven?! Rest assured, I still LOVE our Sven and think it’s the best leather sofa currently on the market for comfort, style and affordability. I love it so much that I essentially thought another leather option for a different area in our house would be a great option for our family. So why the Cigar?

I saw the Mello sectional in Chris Loves Julia’s cabin, which has a very similar look, and thought it looked perfect. Relaxed style, beautiful soft leather and what appeared to be a nice deep seat. So I thought I would give the Cigar a try because I wanted to achieve the same vibe in a standard sofa, not sectional. Truthfully, I didn’t know how we would feel about the lower back or chunkier feel but I’d never been disappointed in the past, so I took the plunge!

It arrived, like usual, crazy fast and the delivery was smooth sailing – the guys unloaded it, unpacked it and hauled the boxes away lickety split! Seriously, you can’t beat that. Ryan was home at the time and called me, saying how much he already loved it. You see, he was already sprawled out on it, fitting from head to toe…and he is 6’2 people. So right off the hop, I knew that part was going to be great for us. Naps and cuddles will actually be possible for the tallest member of our household. But what about the rest…

General comfort – it’s cozy! Yes the back cushion is quite a bit lower than anything we’ve owned but it only means we lean more with our feet up when sitting in it, slouching down a bit more. It’s not something I would necessarily put in a “movie watching” room but in general, I think this sofa is really quite comfortable. The seats are nice and deep and my gosh, this rawhide leather is beyond soft. Like butter people!

Function – you know what I love the best about this sofa and having a young family…no back cushions. Might seem weird but Jack has taken to making a mess of our sofas and I always found like I was fixing, cleaning and rearranging them. I love that this couch has a nice stable frame that is really practical for kids. Add a couple of throw cushions and it’s perfect. The low profile also makes it easy for him to get up and down and when baby number 2 comes, I think it will be really practical for laying with her etc.

(Also side note – how beautiful does my new Uusi green Henry pillow look on the caramel leather?!?! I’m in love!)

Style – while I tend to prefer more mid century styled furniture (and why I love the Sven) I’m surprised by how much I love this more relaxed vibe alongside our fireplace. It makes our front room more inviting and intimate feeling and I welcome the fact I don’t have to clean underneath it since there are no legs lifting it off the floor. The exposed seams are beautiful and make it feel really deconstructed and casual. And again, the low profile helps make our space feel bigger.

Finally – care! This is a big one and I know leather can feel intimidating for a lot of people. Spills, stains and scratches are a part of life, especially when you have two big dogs, one very busy toddler and a baby on the way. But for me, those things just make the leather looked lived in and the aging patina can be very pretty. You need to be ok with that look because leather is definitely harder to maintain in a pristine condition. And if it’s still something you’re worried about, Article even wrote a guide on how to care for leather furniture that’s filled with great tips.One thing I am doing with this sofa is just having more throws on and around it, so if Jack wants to cuddle up on it with his water bottle, I’m not stressing as much…because truthfully, water stains are always our biggest nemesis with a toddler.

I love how our front living room is finally coming together…it’s been a room in constant transition with pieces coming and going. When I found my vintage bookshelf, I knew I was on the right track. Adding in the rich caramel leather of the Cigar took it one step further. Last thing on my list is to find a better coffee table solution, though at the moment, a couple of poufs is serving us just fine. Jack loves the open play area and so do the dogs! So for the time being, I am happy to take a break in here and focus my design energy elsewhere!


What do you think?! Does the Article Cigar sofa suit the space? If you’re curious about the quality or style of Article’s other leather sofas, shop them all here

90,000 Beautiful skin forever: how to properly care for your face at 20, 30, 40 and 50 years old – Stories

With a little effort, you will have clean, smooth, as if radiant skin from within.

You probably know these basic rules. Let’s list them for completeness.

  • Wash your face twice a day with a gel or foam with a pH of about 5–5.5. This product preserves the skin’s protective barrier.
  • Be sure to remove makeup before bed.
  • Use cosmetics suitable for your skin type.
  • Use two different day and night care products. Moisturizing is better during the day, nourishing at night.
  • Once or twice a week, deeply cleanse the skin with scrubs or peels.
  • Pay special attention to the area around the eyes: use special creams and serums marked “for the eyelids”.
  • Give preference to sunscreen cosmetics.In summer or at ski resorts, it is important to use special products with an SPF of at least 30.

It should be borne in mind that the skin changes with age. What you could do without at 30 becomes an urgent need at 40. And moments that are not critical for 20 will be extremely important at 50.

Between the ages of 20 and 30, the body and skin experience a real heyday. Teenage pimples are often a thing of the past, wrinkles seem like a far-fetched horror story from the distant future, and the goal of care is mainly about prevention.However, not everything is as smooth as it might seem at first glance. These four rules must be followed in order to enjoy clear and youthful skin for as long as possible.

1. Do not forget to wash your face thoroughly in the evenings

Dry skin at a young age is rare, but normal skin with a tendency to oily is in a wide range. This is due to the high levels of sex hormones in Birth Control for Acne, a side effect of which is increased sebum production. With age, the level of hormones, and with it the skin, normalize.But while you’re young and hot, fat can be a problem: it is a great breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria that cause inflammation and irritation.

To prevent the infection from multiplying and spoil your appearance, do not forget to wash off the grease, dust and dirt accumulated on your face during the day. Of course, using products for your skin type.

2. Clean the pores

Blackheads – pores clogged with grease and dirt – are another common problem in adolescence.If you neglect cleansing, over time, the pores will stretch, and the skin becomes like an orange peel.

Deep cleaning of pores at home should be done at least once a week. This will be helped by special cleansing masks, which you can buy or make yourself.

If the skin is prone to acne, it is worth doing manual or ultrasonic cleaning once a month or two by a beautician.

3. Protect yourself from ultraviolet radiation

A tan can look beautiful.But if it’s natural, it’s probably dangerous. The sun’s rays dry out, and ultraviolet light damages the collagen and elastin proteins, which are responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin. The result is accelerated aging (photoaging) of the face.

To prolong youth, get used to using SPF products even at such a tender age. And if chocolate shade is important to you, use self-tanners.

4. Take care of the skin under the eyes

The skin around the eyes is very thin and has almost no fatty layer under it.This is why she is aging in the first place. It is a common mistake to start looking after these areas in adulthood. Experts recommend taking care of the condition of the skin around the eyes from 18.

Use special moisturizing creams and nourishing masks-patches. Wet compresses based on green tea and mint also preserve youth well. The recipe for compresses is simple: 1-2 teaspoons of tea or mint, pour 0.5 liters of boiling water and let cool. Dip cotton pads or gauze folded in several layers into the infusion, squeeze lightly and place under your eyes for 10-15 minutes.

By this age, you have already experienced a lot of stress and hormonal bursts (pregnancy, childbirth, taking contraceptives, and so on), and this has affected your skin. Even if the changes are not very noticeable, they are. And for obvious reasons they will grow. Therefore, do not overlook the following important points.

1. Pay attention to the pigmentation

Uneven color is a bright age sign that can add at least several years.With age, pigmentation becomes more pronounced, so it is important to maintain an even skin tone. This can be achieved by using whitening creams, masks, or using soft (no large abrasive particles) home scrubs.

But the ideal option is to consult a beautician. He will not only offer you whitening products tailored specifically for your skin, but may also recommend a series of professional peels.

The use of cosmetics with SPF is of particular importance.Ultraviolet light triggers the production of melanin and thus aggravates the pigmentation problem.

2. Try not to use products with ethyl alcohol

Alcohol dissolves and washes away sebum. When there is a lot of fat, as is often the case in adolescence, rubbing alcohol can be helpful. They help to eliminate excess sebum with accumulated bacteria in it and thereby prevent the occurrence of acne.

However, sebum production decreases with age.Meanwhile, it is necessary because it moisturizes the skin and protects it from the external environment: high and low temperatures, wind, and so on. Alcohol-based products damage this thinning and time-consuming barrier. And thus deprive the skin of the necessary moisture and protection.

After 30, it is advisable to choose tonics not with alcohol, but, for example, with green tea.

3. Start using anti-aging products

For example, creams and serums with retinol (vitamin A).It has been proven that retinol improves cell metabolism, stimulates collagen synthesis and even helps to reduce existing wrinkles.

However, this remedy also has side effects. For example, vitamin A can irritate the skin and increase photosensitivity. Therefore, such creams can be used only at night.

Considering the side effects, it makes sense to consult a beautician. A specialist will help you choose the right retinol concentration for your skin.And also, perhaps, will advise other anti-aging remedies and techniques, including salon lifting procedures: massage, microcurrent and mesotherapy, and so on.

Creams and masks with collagen and hyaluronic acid will fit well in home care. By the way, facial massage can also be performed independently.

They say that modern 40 years are new 20. And this is really so. Medicine, cosmetology, a healthy lifestyle allow many women to look as attractive at this age as between 20 and 30.To help your skin stay youthful and fresh longer, it is important to follow these guidelines.

1. Intensively moisturize the skin

We have already mentioned that over the years the skin becomes less oily. As the protective barrier of sebum becomes thinner, it becomes more difficult for the skin to retain moisture. And where there is not enough moisture, there comes a drought with its characteristic cracks, wrinkles, creases. Skin hydration should be a priority in your skincare routine.

Refuse washing with soap and other drying agents.Switch to creamy nourishing foams or no-rinse micellar water. When choosing a day and night cream, also focus on maximum hydration.

2. Include salon treatments

Even if you used to do just fine on your own. With age, the skin requires more and more attention and care: the volume of the lips decreases, the nasolabial folds appear, the oval of the face floats slightly.

Modern cosmetology offers a wide range of anti-aging treatments and works wonders.Correctly selected peels, massage techniques, as well as all kinds of beauty injections that moisturize the deep layers of the skin, fill in wrinkles and restore volume to the lips, allow even at 49 to look as amazing as at 25.

Consult a beautician for professional advice. It is important that your specialist has a medical degree and appropriate training. In this case, therapy will be as safe and effective as possible.

3. Pay maximum attention to the skin under the eyes

With age, the thin skin in these areas requires more and more nutrition and increasingly dense creams and serums rich in antioxidants and vitamins.It is advisable to select them together with a beautician who will give recommendations, focusing on the characteristics and condition of your specific skin.

Even if it seems that you are lucky and mimic wrinkles with dark circles will safely bypass you. Time is relentless, and if you do not help the skin under the eyes to recover, unpleasant changes can one day overtake you in just a few days.

The legendary Coco Chanel once said: “Your face at the age of 20 was given to you by nature; how it will be at 50 depends on you. “We hope you did not leave your skin alone with stress, and it continues to delight you with health and a well-groomed look. You are probably already a master in facial care, so here are just three key points.

1. Use retinol

If you have not used products with vitamin A before, you should not postpone: they really help the skin to stay young longer. If retinol is already found in your favorite creams and serums, consider increasing the concentration.

2. Add hyaluronic acid serum

This substance is present in the skin and is also involved in the preservation of moisture in the tissues. With age, there is less and less natural hyaluronic acid, and the skin becomes drier, slowly turning into parchment.

But it’s not just about moisture loss. Hyaluronic acid is actively involved in the processes of cell regeneration. With its deficiency, the skin simply loses the ability to effectively recover.And this accelerates aging.

Therefore, after 50, it is extremely important to additionally nourish the skin with hyaluronic acid using specialized anti-aging serums or even injections.

3. Every three to four days, make masks with a lifting effect

In terms of rejuvenation, alginate masks have proven themselves well. However, cosmetic brands offer many other options for masks with a lifting effect based on “branded” active ingredients. And you will certainly be able to choose something of your own – exactly the remedy that will restore elasticity to your specific skin.

90,000 Film Mysterious Skin (USA, Netherlands, 2004) watch online – Afisha-Kino

In this outrageous film by queer director Gregg Araki, an attempt was made to overcome the wall between the viewer and such an impartial topic as the trauma that remains scarred on the soul of a person after sexual abuse … Striving for maximum expressiveness, Araki captures in the frame almost everything that you do not want to see – from the process of seducing minors, ending with the abysses into which a person descends after.And it would seem that there is no point in watching this film if it is unpleasant, sickening and disgusting, but it is he who wants to watch to the end, swim through the present atmosphere of pain, provided that it is not so painful to swim.

Surely Araki knew that by going too far and showing his picture with the utmost seriousness, he would lose not only the rental opportunity due to the high rating qualification, but also the audience, and therefore in “Mysterious Skin” there is also an attempt to build a frame “like Kar Vaya “, according to Araki himself, beautifully and hypnotically, intrigue” like Lynch. “A bit of humor and a pinch of youth recklessness, the pretty faces of Gordon-Levitt and Michelle Trachtenberg. At the exit, we get a peppery beautiful cocktail of fashionable independent cinema, in addition to deliberate scandalousness, which has a subtle charm that is hard not to succumb to.

And now, the film begins to bewitch, and the sensations from this love spell are difficult to interpret unambiguously. If you were not a victim of a pedophile as a child, then you will be “presented” with this feeling. Moreover, they will “present” fairly honestly, not frightening, but rather seducing, so much so that a seditious thought will appear that the care that the coach renders to his wards with a stretch can be called seduction, although in fact this seduction is.And then they will tell with a touch of romanticism about the wanderings of people with a hole in their hearts and in their memory, like in “My Personal State of Idaho”, only much more frankly. After sexual abuse, one hero becomes a hustler in love with a rapist, and the other is looking for the facts of his UFO abduction, because he does not remember what happened to him during those four hours when he was eight years old. He does not remember and, thank God, I want to say, but watching his investigation fascinates no less than the study of the dark soul of the Nile.

“Mysterious Skin”, despite its vileness, finds its fans who are not afraid of the outer shell of the film.After all, you can see something completely different behind it. No, not beautiful souls, but twisted and broken, insane, unable to become normal anymore, and how honestly and openly this is shown, deserves respect and praise, and its many spectators.

Smoking and beautiful skin, perhaps?

Smoking and beautiful skin, perhaps? Toggle navigation

Nothing beautifies a woman like beautiful and well-groomed skin.
Poets in their poems and artists who tried to convey her tenderness on their canvases with anything else compared to her. There is a whole beauty industry at work to make the skin look attractive. But if a woman or a man smokes, then the first thing that this affects is the skin, which changes under the influence of nicotine and, mind you, not for the better.

Smoking has a negative effect on the quality and appearance of facial skin. The smoke of tobacco can cause dryness and irritation of the skin by direct external influence and due to the penetration of harmful components into the blood, which reduce the tone of blood vessels and change cellular and extracellular elements.As a result of smoking, the size of the lungs becomes smaller. This entails a deterioration in blood circulation, as a result, cells experience oxygen starvation and a lack of vitamins from the blood. Under the influence of nicotine and tar, the activity of free radicals increases, which cause rapid skin aging by reducing collagen and elastin molecules, which provide the skin with firmness and elasticity. Smoking also destroys vitamin C, which is so essential for skin to look fresh and healthy.For example, research has shown that a single smoked cigarette can destroy about 25 milligrams of this important skin vitamin.
Why do smokers have this skin?

  • Yellowish tint.
This is due to oxygen starvation and disruption of the liver, which cannot cope with the removal of harmful substances and carcinogens that enter the body with tobacco smoke.
  • The leather has a grayish tint.
The body and skin experience oxygen deprivation due to vasoconstriction and poor circulation caused by smoking.They are formed as a result of specific facial expressions when smoking. Due to the narrowing of the capillaries, the skin lacks moisture, vitamins and microelements. Harmful substances in cigarette smoke destroy elastin and collagen fibers.
  • Hardened Leather.
This is a protective reaction of the skin, its attempts to reduce permeability to reduce the penetration of harmful substances.
  • Vascular mesh on the skin.
This is how the changes in blood vessels are manifested under the influence of nicotine.
  • Comedones (black dots).
The appearance of black spots on the skin can be explained by the clogging of the pores with tobacco smoke and its derivatives.
  • Acne scars.
Due to constant oxygen starvation and insufficient supply of nutrients, skin regeneration occurs slowly and often scar tissue forms instead of normal tissue.
  • Increased sensitivity to sunlight.
Strong oxidative processes occur in the skin of smokers, which can trigger the aging mechanism of the skin after just five minutes of exposure to the sun.Smoking and beautiful skin are incompatible things. If you smoke, then perhaps after reading the above, you will want to give up this addiction. And believe me: after quitting smoking, your skin condition will become noticeably better and she will say “thank you” to you.

And although this is the first case in the biography of Gregg Araki, the film adaptation of a story not invented by him (the film is based on the novel of the same name by Scott Heim, according to which there is already a theatrical production in America), the film resembles everything Araki filmed before.

In the early 1990s, Araki made the film “The Living End” (we have pirates translated it as “Bare Wire”) about lovers with AIDS who decided to live the rest of their days to the fullest. The extensive “Live Fast, Die Young” commercial has become a sensation at the Sundance Independent Film Festival. Then there was a trilogy about teenagers brought up by MTV and game consoles “Fucked up” (about mating in the intervals between taking a new dose of loafers), “Generation Doom”, announced as “Araki’s first heterosexual film” (about young people having sex with just anyone, drugs and the ability to shoot someone’s head at any time), and sur “Nowhere”, which is slightly lost against the background of his success.

Now the director has returned to his favorite homosexual theme. The main characters are complete antipodes. Rohlya Brian cannot recover from the events of ten years ago. Then the eight-year-old boy had a memory lapse: the five hours that passed after the minor league match until the moment when the schoolboy woke up in the cellar of his house, Brian could not remember. Brian finds an old photo of the league squad members and tracks down Neal. Brian’s former comrade is involved in prostitution with men who are ready to pay double the price for a pretty face.

Shockingly, the director in “Mysterious Skin”, which almost all cinemas in Moscow refused to rent, even overdid it. But pedophilia and hardcore sex in Mysterious Skin become the backdrop for Araki’s beloved idea of ​​doom, violence and self-destruction. And humanity: one of the best moments in the film is the scene with Neal’s warty client, who needs a simple touch a lot more sex.

“Moody cloud”

The poetically named work by the native of Malaysia and now living in Thailand director Tsai Ming-Lian is intriguing with the genre: “erotic-pornographic musical”.A French student returns from Europe to Thailand and learns that her former fan, who used to make money by selling watches, is now a porn actor. Love sufferings coincide with the summer heat, when, in order to save drinking water, even on TV, it is suggested to quickly switch to watermelons. However, Min-Lian himself cannot satisfy the audience’s thirst for “strawberries” or melodrama. Formally, both sex and love in the film seem to be enough – but monotonous copulation scenes are played by professional porn actors, and even the touching song “Wind at the End of Heaven”, which is performed by singer Bai Guang in the film, is unable to bring the viewer into a state of excitement.

the film is excellent. Chinese fairy tales in this format generally capture the imagination.And I want to see something else. I recommend to all fans of this genre not to pass by. Beautiful, colorful, interesting, informative. I looked about foxes. About dragons too. There are no cats yet. Here I filled in the gap.


It’s not even bad for a mystical drama, I liked the main plot with meaning and the ending. In addition, the demon-cat turned out to be more human than those men whose soul she ate and drank blood. In general, to while away the evening for fans of fantasy is the very thing.


I didn’t really like the drama. Perhaps this is because it is too mystical, or perhaps this is not the plot that I like. I honestly don’t know what I didn’t like here so much. The actors are cute and they play well. I don’t know what else to add


Does the drama have this cover or cover with a girl in a purple haze? Didn’t recognize just
