Black Friday Deals : My picks.

novembre 24, 2017

If you're anything like me, you've spent the last few days adding things to various carts on about a hundred websites trying to decide what you really needed to buy on Black Friday. Now that the day has come, I find myself with said carts full to the brim and a mail box literally overflowing with offers that really doesn't help. I almost lost it this morning, I'll be honest, but then I took a deep breath and focused only on the best offers.

A November to do list.

novembre 03, 2017


Hello November!
Sad as it was seeing October go, as it's one of my favourite months of the year, I'm so ready to move onto bigger things, or rather with Halloween out of the way now it's perfectly acceptable to start feeling excited for Christmas. There're so many thing I look forward to in the next weeks: the lights, decorations popping up in every shop window, steaming cups of hot chocolate, buying gifts for the people I love... It's going to be a busy month. Here are 5 things on my to do list:

Lush Halloween haul.

ottobre 30, 2017


It's that time of the year again, when Lush drops its Halloween and Holiday ranges and a trip to the closest store feels pretty much mandatory, especially since bath weather is finally upon us. Whether you celebrate Halloween and wait a whole year for the chance to show your spooky makeup skills, or you're only in for the candies and the pumpkin spice lattes like me, I'm fairly sure you'll agree that the chance for a lovely, extra cozy pampering bath is way too good to pass up on.

Made Me Happy This Week.

settembre 04, 2017


September is finally here! It almost felt like this scorching Summer would last forever and I'm honestly so excited to see the hot season come to an end - I'm aware that usually is the other way around and most wish for an endless summertime but I always struggle during the warmer months, as I feel sluggish, drowsy and very unproductive most of the time. I have great plans for the rest of the year and I look forward to wearing light knits, ankle boots and my favourite trench coat in the next weeks.

Four Favourites from The Ordinary.

giugno 28, 2017


Although I do love the occasional drugstore makeup gem, I can't say I've ever been truly interested in budget skincare, not when my face is involved at least. Mostly because cheaper brands have the tendency to add lots of artificial fragrances to their products that can aggravate my sensitive skin, and in general I've always believed that you get what you pay for and good ingredients don't come for free. Then The Ordinary happened and took by storm not just the whole beauty community but also my skincare cabinet, and made me completely rethink my attitude toward skincare.

What I love about the brand is their minimalist, no-nonsense approach to products: they got rid of all the unnecessary stuff, such as fancy packaging, superfluous ingredients, fragrance and the like, and  bottled up just the pure actives that are what the skin really needs. By doing so they allow you to target directly your own skin concerns and create your perfect skincare regime without breaking the bank. Brilliant!
I've been trying a few of their products for quite some time and these are my favourites so far.
