NEW BEAUTY OBSESSIONS

June 16, 2017



Someone get my credit card because every time I try to save money I end up buying something! It can be online or in a shop, anytime and anywhere... ugh!

Even though I always complain about spending money I should be saving... I love buying new things and I thought "Why not talking about it on my blog?"

So here's a quick post where I talk about some things I bought recently and I liked.






1. Garnier's Micellar Water All-In-One: I bought this product two weeks ago with a friend because we started talking about how much we needed to take care of our faces and I realised I ran out of products to remove my makeup and I personally read a lot of good things about this micellar water so I decided to give it a go. To know more about what it does and how to use it read this.
 It removes all the makeup very nicely and it leaves my face soft so I'm gonna keep using it and probably keep buying it.

2. Garnier's Fruit Energy Gel Scrub: Ok, so I also bought this one the same day that I bought the Micellar Water and I thought it wouldn't work if I'm being honest. It smells really good (I think that's why I gave it a go) and It really helped my skin! I usually get a lot of acne and spots but recently my face has been looking fresher and softer so I'll call it a win! If you want to know more about this product read this



3.Kiko's Extra Sculpt Volume Mascara: I bought this mascara because it was really cheap (Kiko is currently doing a super sale on mascaras - at least in Spain-) and I was running out of mascara so when  a blogger I read a lot talked about it in a post, decided to give it a go. Even though I haven't used it much I like the formula but I still don't know If I like t the brush, I'm not used to it but we'll see. If you want to know more or buy it go here.

4. NYX Lip Lingerie in colour Embellishment: I actually bought this in Poland but daaamn I love it! It looks good with any makeup look, it doesn't matter if it's daytime or nighttime, I'm soo obsessed with I just had to show you! I love NYX makeup and mostly, I LOVE the Lip Lingerie range, all the colours are nice, they feel nice on the lips and it's kind of long wear (it fades depending on what you eat but still- very nice!-) so if you want to give it a go, or to any other shade here you have them 'cause I'm for sure going to buy more of them soon.

If you've tried any of these products don't doubt to talk to me about them! Tell me what you think!

WHAT I WORE IN POLAND

May 23, 2017

As you may or may not know (I talked about it in my last post) at the start of the month I went to Poland. (I may write another post about it - this time about Poznan- not sure yet.). So I feel like talking about the outfits I wore.

 Poland is colder than Barcelona so even tho I went kind of prepared, my friend had to let me her jacket(which I feel in love with) and I really liked my outfits, even tho I spent 4-5 days there, I only have pictures of 2 because we kind of chilled out as well haha.

FIRST OUTFIT

This first outfit was the one I went in and the pictures were Taken in Warsaw. To be honest with you, my clothes are from local shops from Barcelona or old so I'll try to find similar ones in case you like something.

        


          
Jacket: This jacket it's oooooh so comfy and soft! It's actually from a Supermarket (that also sells clothes) IT's called Carrefour, I don't know if you know it, but it's actually really well made and It's perfect for this kind of weather (not too cold for a huge jacket, but not hot enough for a cardigan). I found similar ones HERE and HERE

Jumper: This black jumper/sweater (however you call it), it's actually my favourite. I wear it all the time because it's comfy, it looks good with EVERYTHING (I mean obviously, it's plain black) and I love dark clothes so.... it's a win-win situation tbh.I love it's neck too btw, it's not a long neck but it's not a regular one either. It's from H&M, and here's a similar one, even I'm gonna admit and say that this one is actually prettier than mine's lol. 

Jeans: My mum jeans are from Bershka but you can find them anywhere.  I have a problem with these jeans. I lovee them but I got a way too big size and now they look huge on me... So I might go and buy me another pair (in my size this time) but I still love how they look on people and how they can go with a looot of stuff. 

Shoes: Ok, so my shoes are actually from a local shop, but as you can see they look like Adidas's Stan Smith ones or you can find similar ones everywhere now like here or here


SECOND OUTFIT

For my second outfit, you can see my friend's jacket and boots and the pictures were taken in Poznan.


Jacket: This is my friend's bomber jacket, I think it's from Stradivarius but (as everything so far) you can find it in any shop at the moment 'cause it's so in! Here and Here are some examples of where to find them. It seems so light but It actually covers me more than mine and I looked pretty cool on it (if I do say so myself). 

Shirt: I'm so obsessed with this shirt! everything black, with laces and that look like band tees... GIMME! If a shirt has one (only one!) of these factors, it's like 90% possible that I'm gonna like it. And when I saw this shirt in Stradivarius.... I just fell in love. Here you have it!

                                                                   

Jeans: My all-time go-to clothing, black high waisted jeans. I buy them from Bershka because they're the ones that I find comfy and with accurate size. I'm willing to try new ones tho! 

Shoes: These boots are my friend's too because I thought the would look cooler with the outfit and I just took with me my white sneakers (BAG SPACE) so she let me borrow her boots (friendship goals - I know!). She told me they're fromStradivariuss too so I think they might be this ones, and if they're note, they're really similar haha!

I WENT TO POLAND: Warsaw

May 17, 2017

Poland. To me, that was always a place we never talked about enough. No one talks about how pretty the buildings are or how nice their local food is. At least I never saw it.

Anyway, I went to Poland because my friend's there (Erasmus) and I thought"Why not?" I've been to places I've never been before (If I'm being honest, I never thought about visiting them) and I've seen a friend that I haven't seen in ages and I missed her.

In this post, I'm going to show you some pretty cute pictures I took (and my friend took of me) in Poland, and I'll tell you reasons why you should go to Poland.

I've only seen Warsaw and Poznan and I feel in love with them.

WARSAW

I arrived in Warsaw on a Monday, so we explored the city before going to Poznan (where my friend is living at the moment). We saw the Chopin garden,

- I might do a different post talking about my outfits and another one about Poznan because I don't feel like doing a very long solo post tbh. - 

Once we arrived at the centre of the city, we didn't do much. We sat in front of the Palace of Culture and Science and ate our sandwiches while we caught up in our lives and enjoyed the nice weather (the only day in my trip with a sunny and clear sky tbh...) and the views. When we finished our food (and realised it was getting a bit late...) we started walking towards the Lazieski Park to check the Chopin statue but we ended up staying for hours! It's such a pretty place... We didn't want to leave! But we had to, and even though we spent hours in the park, there's still part of the park we haven't seen (guess I have to go back sometime haha!)  Oh... I almost forgot! We also saw the Warsaw Old Town which I found really pleasing and I just wanted to see every inch of it (there was a medieval fair too!) but we had to leave soon so we could get to the train to Poznan.

Excuse me for the amount of pictures....
