Stuck In My Head | I just can't wait to be king

This song always reminds of Disneyland Paris closing show, and today I was looking through some pictures from when I was there and this song immediately popped in my head.

Have you ever been to Disneyland? Do you remember the awesome show? It's awesome isn't it?

"Everybody look left, everybody look right 
Everywhere you look, I'm standing in the spotlight
Let every creature go for broke and sing
Let's hear it on the herd and on the wing
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling
Oh I just can't wait to be king"

I love high end makeup. The quality is incomparable against drugstore. My favorite is definitely Chanel.

Review | DYSTRON Sensitive Intimate Wipes

I realize that this is kind of a weird product to talk about, but it's something that I like, that it's useful to me and that it's included in the list of indispensable things that any girl needs to have should have in her bag! I know that for you personal/intimate hygiene may not be a priority but it should!

When I go to the bathroom -- specially if I'm on that time of the month -- I like to have something with me that I can use to freshen up.

Usually I have on hand regular baby wipes, but the last time I was shopping the "girly isle" of my supermarket, I saw these and I decided to give them a try. Turns out I really like them!

Unlike baby wipes, these are specially made to keep everything healthy, clean and to keep odors at bay. Also, they are 100% biodegradable, and they can be flushed. The packaging is super cute but the most important -- it's really compact! You can just stick it in your back pocket whenever you need to go to the bathroom,

The smell is awesome. It is really nice. It smells fresh floral and slightly medicinal. The wipes are very smooth and have a really silky texture. They really feel wonderful.
This was my first time trying intimate wipes, and I really liked them. And now, I'm curious for trying their washing product. I use on a regular basis one but it's from the pharmacy and it's not cheap.

Let me know in the comments if ypu use this type of stuff. Have you tried this brand before?

My Week #15 | Exciting new collab!

I have a lot to talk about this week. Some cool exciting things have been happening, so for once this last week was not boring at all! 

I've started to attend a after-work/weekend course. It's all about legislation and regimentation but I'm actually digging it. It's not exactly my field of studies, but hey -- one needs to be versatile! The subject is not hard, but having to combine studying and homework and the actual classes (Fridays, from 19h to 23h and Saturdays all day) it's a lot to handle. But so far I'm enjoying. I love to be busy, and I love having stuff to do.  So after work, I've going to Starbucks almost every day to study and do the assignments. 

I actually have been obsessed with this products. These are my favorite. Red nails, mascara, eyeliner and shadow stick make me look really put together with minimum effort! It's perfect for my busy life!

Food-wise, I've been loving some peas and eggs. I love peas. It's like my favorite thing to eat. I love pea soup, pea pure, boiled peas, and anything else with peas. And I had forgotten how much I love this meal. I know, it's such a typical Portuguese dish, and such a weird thing to love, but I really do. It's really homey, really tasty.

And now the awesome news! The blog is now collabing with Soufeel! I love charm bracelets and Soufeel has the most adorable charms I've ever seen. They are made of sterling silver, and you can have free shipping for orders over $50. They also have a lot of gorgeous rings. I think I've spent a couple of hours just browsing through their website. They do sales all the time, and special prices, and they even give you gifts with your order. Also, you can use the blog's discount code and get an extra 5% off your order! I'm super excited about this and I know I'll be buying somethings there (I'm in love with one of their ring sets!)

I hope you all have a great week, and enjoy the good weather that's finally here!

CREDIT CARD INSIDER | Get better at adulting

Being an adult, and living alone sometimes really sucks...
Of course there are a lot of positive aspects like not having a curfew, not having anyone telling you to clean your room, or being able to have pizza and ice-cream for dinner every day!
But, the end of the month is always the worst part, you need to have enough money to pay rent or else you will be homeless next month! And that can be really stressful! 

We all think that we are going to be the most responsible adults ever, and that we will never counting quarters at at the end of the month to buy food. But let's be real. That never actually happens. We've all been there. We see a super cute pair of shoes or a nice designer bag, and it's impossible to resist the urge of some good old fashion retail therapy. (maybe it would be cheaper to get actual therapy but, oh well). 

I don't spend money that I don't have. But you know, emergencies happen... And you may need to spend some unexpected cash that you actually had last month, but then you spent it on that cute bag.

To avoid begging money from your parents and admitting that you are failing at adulting, Credit Card Insider can help you choose a credit card, suited to your spending habits that will help you keep your
finances together. On their website they show you the anual fees, interest rates as well as the credit scores required, so you can make an educated choice and don't get sucked up in some last minute personal credit that  will consume your paycheck for the rest of your life.

It's pretty cool -- they have an online survey where you answer simple questions like if you are have ever applied for a credit card before, or if you are collage student, And then they let you know what are your options! And if can apply right away for one of the cards! Easy and Simple! 

Hop on Credit Card Insider, take the survey and let me know in the comments what card is the best for you! ;)

The dress that Claire Danes wore to the Met Gala this year was mind blowing.
It reminds me of Cinderella's dress and it's just a dream.

Empties #07 ! OMG I'm gonna cry

- THE BODY SHOP Honeymania Cream Body Scrub. Let's take a minute of silence please. The other day I went to try to buy another and they told me that it's discontinued . I was so sad. I loved this product so much. I can't believe that it is gone. I only wish I'd used it in a more restrained way. It is so creamy and it smells so good. You can read my full review HERE. Will I repurchase it? I would if I could!!

- O.B. Original Tampons (Normal). These are my favorite tampons. I actually never use pads, only tampons. These are so comfortable and they don't let any flux pass. Will I repurchase it? Obviously.

- SEPHORA Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover. This is a two-fase make up remover and it's so so good. It is perfect to remove mascara and eyeliner. I have been using it for years and I can vouch for it. It lasts me ages. I think I've bought this one almost one year ago, and it's the travel size! It's really really god. Will I repurchase it? Yep!

- LABELLO Original Lip Balm. I'm one of those wired girls that can actually completely finish a lip balm. And this is the second one I've finished. To be honest it is not that great. It doesn't really moist my super chapped lips, nor protect them from getting even more chapped. I used it all up super quickly because since I couldn't feel any action going on I just kept applying and applying and applying...  Will I repurchase it? No.
