Empties failure

Yes, Robert -- I guess I am!

I have been saving for the last couple of weeks all my empty containers of beauty products and other stuff I used during the past few weeks -- but yesterday I did the most smart thing ever! I was distracted and took all the containers with the rest of my other recyclables and put them all in the recycling bin! Yes I threw them away!

So no empties -- yet!

Having a bad day

I love music -- all genders -- as long as I can identify with it and the feeling it conveys!
Today I am having such a bad day -- I have a ton of problems at work and I need to do something that seems completely impossible, and my boss is being an ass with me! I swear to god I am trying to finish this on time -- I cant even sleep thinking about solutions to this problem -- I keep dreaming about it and waking up super anxious about it! Growing up sucks!
Anyway -- this song just poped in my head and I have been singing it since yesterday night -- I have no idea why my brain remembered this song now!

I haven't hear Paramore in ages -- every since they did a song for twilight or whatever that I kinda lost interest in them -- this was what? 7 or 8 years ago?

Anyway -- I need to take this song out of my head! Can anyone suggest me a cool "happy" song?!

Tips&Tricks | Keep you room clean!

When some one come to my tiny tiny apartment, they always say 3 things about it:
1) oh uau you weren't kidding, this is really small!
2) it smells so good in here!
3) oh you have everything so clean and tidy all the time!

This always makes me feel so proud that I have decided to share with you my top tips to always have a clean house/bedroom! I am always very busy and I have a cool system that works perfectly, it is super easy and super fast.

1 - After using something, put it away in its pace! Don't leave things hanging around on the floor or on top of your desk -- it makes everything look messy and untidy!

2 - Clean up once a week! It is better to clean just a bot every week then to do a big cleaning once a month! This is what I do: Every Saturday morning I change my sheets, clean the dust with some cheap Swiffer cloths or some scented wipes --not baby wipes, i mean wipes for furniture; I like the ones from Plegde -- they smell good, they do the job and they are cheap! -- and I vacuum the floor. I also clean my bathroom really fast by spraying some Cilit Bang everywhere and rinsing everything really well after a few minutes. I also use the wipes in the bathroom to clean small stuff. This helps me keep everything clean and "presentable" in case I have some unexpected guests!

3 - If something gets dirty clean it right away! It This helps you to keep your stuff always looking clean! This includes dishes!!

4- Don't leave dirty stuff hanging around! Clean your dishes and put your dirty cloths in the laundry bin. This will emit smells and makes the place look a mess! Also, don't leave trash in your room!

5- During the day, leave the windows open to renew the air! This will prevent bad smells as well.

6- Use an air-freshener and candles!  I love febreze! My fav is the fresh cotton smell --  i have candles and the spray bottle with this smell and I use it almost every day! It gives my place a nice and good fresh and smell that is just so comforting ! When i get home from work super tired and late is sooo good to get home to such a nice smell!

Ok so this are my tips! Do you think it is weird i am telling you all this?lol What are your tips or your cleaning up routine? Let me know in the comments what do you do cuz I am always looking to have a clean house with less effort possible!

My Week #03 | Elf haul

Hi!! So, this week is more like week-end because I have been working so much that I barely have time to do anything during the week -- and worked a lot during the weekend as well -- but I always try to find time to do something that relaxes me or that helps me not to think about work all the time!

If you follow this blog or my facebook you probably already know some of this stuff!
I ordered a bunch of stuff from elf cosmetics! I am so excited to try all this new stuff! It should arrive sometime this week! 

I worked all day Saturday so when I got home at the end of the day I was feeling pretty crappy and tired! I made what for me is comfort food for Saturday's dinner - a nice spinach and mushrooms quiche!  I love it! It is my mom's recipe and it runs in our family from generations! It reminds me of home and I make it every time I am feeling a bit down!

On Saturday Night I went out with some of my friends to a super cool bar -- and we had a blast! It was so fun! We drank some beer and some cocktails and then we walked around the city at night -- just perfect!

 Yes and of curse Sunday morning was a hard morning -- I cant even call it morning since I woke up at 1pm! But I have to tell you I was exhausted! Went for a walk with a friend and we bought some yummy French macaroons form Ladurée! So colorful and summery and yummy!!

So this was my week -- and today is Monday again! Lets hope this week is a bit more fun and less work :)

Let me know if you did something interesting this week -- I know most of you are on holidays so I bet you are all doing super cool and interesting stuff!!

Beach essentials + Giveaway!!! [CLOSED]

I am a beach person -- I love the beach, the sun, the ocean. I used to spend all summer in the south of the country, going to the beach every single day -- spending all day at the beach! This year, I have to work -- The perks of growing up!

I will not have holidays, but you will! So I am going to show you my beach essentials! I cannot live in the summer without this stuff!

Lets start with Sunscreen -- I use it everyday if going to the beach or not! Currently my favorite one are from VICHY but I am always trying different ones.  One thing I don't change -- the SPF! 50 for the face, 30 for the body -- always! And I apply it several times a day: before leaving the house and every time after going to the water. For the body I prefer a spray bottle - it is just super simple and easy! - and for the face I always use lotion - it is kinda weird to spray my face, I don't like it! [Also, do not forget to put sunscreen on the top of your feet! People always forget!

Something that I always take with me to the beach are also some essential oils -- it helps to keep my skin moisturized and it helps me get a nice bright tan! I am IN LOVE with this NUXE Huile Prodigieuse - it is so worth the money! Let me know in the comments if you would like a full review!

Lip Balm! You need Lip Balm to keep your lips yummy! This EOS lip balm in Strawberry Sorbet is my favorite! It even has SPF 15, and it tastes so so good!

The last thing you cannot forget for the summer is some nice moisturizer or after sun lotion to put after the shower. I am using this one now, from Neutrogena. I really like it -- it's milky and soft and your skin doesn't get all sticky.

And of course you need a cute, summer backpack to take all your stuff with you to the beach! I recently bought this one -- it is just a pink plastic backpack -- super 90's style. Bought it on ebay -- no specific brand -- but it is just so adorable!


I am giving away this two EOS lip balms! To enter the giveaway you just have to leave a comment telling me what are your on this post! Please leave your e-mail in the comment so I can contact you if you win!

This giveaway will be closed in one week -- so July 14th and i will announce the winners the next day <3

4th of July Fireworks Nails

Okey, first i have to say this -- it is so hot here! OMG I just can't handle this heat and worst ... i can't wear any make up beacuse it just melts on my face !

 Yesterday I went to a 4th of July bbq and i wanted to -- you know --get in the sprit, so I decided to do some 4th of July fireworks inpired nails!

I do not have perfect nails -- in fact i used to bite my nails until like one year ago and they have a super awkward shapes.. but if they are painted with some nice opaque color they look fine. I am also not good at doing any nail art at all -- i even have issues just painting my right hand! I just tried to do something easy and fun!

So I used the 3 nail polishes I am showing you! The first is just a nice bright red from LOLLIPOPS called "Voyage á Paris", then on top I added this cool ciate "Need for tweed".
I am so in love with this nail polish! It has some golden strains, some light blue ones and some royal blue -- i thought it looked just so great with the red! The last is just a top coat "gel effect". It is a bit thicker and it gives great shine, and it inda protects the little strains from coming off.

I have been trying to take a picture of the final result -- yes a picture of my falanges-- but it just doesn't come out right :(

Hope y'all had a great weekend and an awesome 4th of July <3

DIY | Colored Mason Jars

Okey, so i live in a tiny tiny apartment, boring as hell. And I was thinking of how could I just make it more fun, more colorful and happy -- after all it's summer!
I have seen this on printerest maybe a million times, so i decided to give it a try!

Went to the local craft store and bought two cans of spray paint: Gold and Pink -- don't know why but lately i am kinda into gold..

And this is super easy and simple. I went out side, layed some newspaper and started spraying the jars with the spray paint. I painted them from the inside because i thought it would give them q more glassy look -- and it worked! They turned out so cute!

 The only thing i have to point out is that i guess the paint i bought wasn't completely opaque -- for the gold one i had to apply a second coat because i wanted a really solid color, the pink I actually liked the kinda cloudy pink effect, so no second coat on those! But what happens is that you can see to the inside, so if you add dirt and some flowers, it will show, but i thought it was a bonus![The red one in the picture is actually pink -- the dirt makes it look darker]

I end up using the pink ones as flower vases and the gold ones, i fill them with some regular coffee beans and use it to hold all my make up brushes -- The combination of the gold and the brown is just so cute and it also releases such a nice coffee aroma! I don't have any good pictures of it -- the lighting in my house is super bad!

Are you into DIYs? Can you suggest me any cool--and easy-- DIY for me to try? Give me a comment, I would love to know!

The only thing we want to make sure to point out is that some colors aren’t completely opaque. Which means when you fill them with water and flowers (and florist foam if you’re using it) the color will be darker than you planned, since you’ll be able to see the stems and water through the paint. - See more at:

Mini Drugstore Haul / Review

About a month ago, I was shopping for groceries and i noticed all make-upy things were on sale -- so of course I just had to buy something -- yep and this is what i bought! I was not very into drugstore make up until i started using RIMMEL products -- i am obsessed with their mascaras!

Now, after about one month of trying this stuff i can tell you what i think.

All the RIMMEL Stay Matte stuff is awesome! Really! I love the powder -- i always use a big powder brush and apply it all over my face -- it doesn't make me look caked up but i have kind of a light hand. But the primmer OMG i was really impressed! It feels like instant photoshop! I always have huge pores one my nose and between my eyebrows and this fills them so perfectly and makes my skin so perfect and smooth! I was kinda skeptical because it says that it if for any skin color -- but it says tone 003 -- so i was not sure if it would be ok. Turns out it it looks like moisturizer -- it's white and doesn't leave any color.
I have added it to my face routine -- i will make a post about that ! -- and i put it even without any foundation on top.

The ELLE makeup sponges are OK -- not bad, not great, just OK. I use them to put my foundation when i am in a hurry -- lately my Beauty Blender is feeling kinda weird, i totally need to buy a new one. But this sponges are not that great. First they were expensive, and I fell like they absorb too much product -- which i hate because i hate to waste ANYTHING! They are washable but mine are all already stained.

And the last product I bought that day was this beautiful lipstick! It's MissEurope and shade 149 which is a natural pink color with some shimmer. It is a cheap lipstick -- i have to admit; But i don't like to bring my expensive stuff with me, in purse, because i am always afraid i am going to loose it, or its going to break or something -- so my everyday lipstick is always something super inexpensive. 

This one is super subtil but it gives you a pinky yummy natural lips! I just love it!

I totally need to buy something new to put my foundation with --what do you suggest i should try?
And don't forget to pass by my FB page -- There are always great stuff happening there

New month - New blog!

Hello Hello!

I have had other blogs really all about the same topics but the truth is that i always get too bussy to keep up with them -- but i hope that's not happening this time!
