Makeup Products I Use Everyday

I like to wear makeup, and the amount I wear always depends on the time I wake up. I have to go to university everyday at 9 am, and I looooove my bed, so you can see how it is every morning. But doesn't matter if I wake up at 8h15 or 8h30 these are the products I use daily. Sometimes there's time to apply more and other times none at all.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Ivory | Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting drama Gel Eyeliner  in 01 Black | Benefit They're real! Mascara (sample size)

So, what are the makeup products you can't skip on a daily basis?!

Vervain Tea

Verbena/Verveine/Vervain whatever it's called, this tea caught my attention for one reason. I'm a pretty big fan of The Vampire Diares, so the ones who also watch it might know why I find this interesting. I was just doing some groceries when I take a look at the tea section and I see this one from Lipton. And damn, it's very delicious! Now no vampire can drink my blood or compel me hehehe.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Review

This isn't exactly a new product but it's new for me. I found out about tea tree oil about 2/3 months ago via a youtube video (can't remember who's from, i'm sorry). But what the person said was that it does wonders if you are someone that has frequently breakouts. I was in that group of people, so that got my attention. 

I totally forgot about it until one/two week(s) ago when my face exploded! So I went to The Body Shop website and searched for tea tree oil, then went to the shop and bought this miracle in a bottle. I'm not even joking.

The product was 7€ (same in pounds and around $9).

My Fashion Essentials for Winter

Winter is almost over but I gathered some things that I think, for me, are essentials for this season. Carry on reading and see if you agree.
  • A Nice Coat
Of course that a nice, warm coat is always necessary if you live in cold weather. To give a little more money on that piece of clothing is always well spent.
I've been loving Stradivarius lately, they have the nicest things. Recently I'm loving this parka, with fake leather sleeves. I've tried it on and it fits perfectly. Still indecisive if I should buy it or not, though..

  • Leggings
I wear them all year so they can't be missing on this list! They make you always feel well, flexible and warm, which at winter it's perfect. If you're like me, you'll be lazy all the time because it's cold and you just want to go to bed... Might as well feel good with what you are wearing if you're just going to school or going on a walk.

  • Cozy jumpers/sweaters
The best part of winter is that you get to wear those jumpers/sweaters that are great to have, and sometimes the uglier the better. It just feels nice to throw them on and done, go enjoy your day.

  • Comfortable boots
And waterproof! If it's raining and there's going to be mud you need to be prepared.
My favourite pair this winter are some flatforms and combat boots from Seaside. They're warm, easy to walk and waterproof. Oh! and really bad ass.

  • Umbrella
Last but not least, an umbrella. Yes, it can be a fashion essential as when it's raining it'll be practically all that you're showing so might as well be cute and fun.

Hope you enjoyed this post and what are YOUR fashion essentials? Let me know in the comments :D

The Black Leggings

I don't know about you, but I'm obsessed with leggings. Normally I either wear leggings, jeggings or, once in a while, skirts. Yeah... I'm not a big fan of jeans/trousers. 
I don't even know how many pair of leggings I own, but If I was to count them probably more than half would be black!
Many people that I know wonder why I have so many pairs of black leggings, for them is all the same, so they can't understand why I keep buying more and more, when there are other colors and patterns available. 

But there really are so many choices that I can't even describe. And they go with everything, so it's definitely a fashion essential. And of course the more you own, better.

Those are the last pair that I bought, they're are from Stradivarius and they're are super pretty, comfortable and warm (which is a plus because is very cold where I live). I love the texture that they have, it's very unique. For some they're just another boring black leggings, but I know that they aren't and that's all that matters, right?
Keep buying black leggings ladies ;)

New Favourite Shoes #Stradivarius

I have new boots in my closet and are the Basic flat Chelsea ankle boots from Stradivarius. In the pictures they look brown, but they are black and what I love about them is the elastic band on the sides that I was looking for in a long time. This style is very common in multiple brands, but mostly all I found were in the heels version. I wanted them for a everyday use, as I walk a lot.
They weren't very expensive for their quality, €39.99 (the same price in pounds) and they are very comfortable. 

Find them here.

My Night Skincare Routine for LAZY PEOPLE!

When I started taking care of my skin I set a night routine that I would do every night. It was pretty simple, I just used three products so I think this is great for people who want to start getting into taking care of their face and are a little lazy. That was my case, I was pretty lazy so I set a super simple one to start.

Obsessed With Shameless (US)


In less than a week I watched three seasons of the US version of Shameless. The fourth one is currently coming out and I'll soon start watching it.
For those who don't know, Shameless is about the Frank Gallagher's family, the drunk father of six children. He's only at home when he needs money or a place to stay. Fiona Gallagher, the oldest daughter (21), is like a mother for her 5 siblings, who works hard to make sure her brothers and sister got everything they deserve.
The show has a Skins atmosphere, in my opinion, so if you like it you should totally watch it.

DIY Chain Rings

Hello everyone! One day I saw some beautiful chain rings and I got inspired to do my own. So whilst searching for some old chains around my house that I could transform I came up with this three ideas, that might serve as an inspiration for you.
