FURLA Jungle Colection

These bags are just so adorable, I want them all! These jungle collection is just so cute! But I went to Furla the other day (and yes I bought a bag!) but they dind't had these at the store. I was so disappointing because I really wanted to see them up-close! But maybe it was a good thing, otherwise I may have ended up buying one of them!

I love any toys that are collectible and come in a bling bag thingy. I love that feeling of not knowing what's inside the little bag! It's so cool.

Review | COLOUP POP Chic-y Palette

When it comes to make up, I am really minimalist. I don't like crazy, elaborated looks... I don't like to look like a crazy person. And I don't really use eye shadow that often. But when I do, I like soft, warm tones just to add some dimension and interest to my extremely minimalist looks.

I picked up this pallet from a while back. It's called Chic-y and it comes with 4 individual eyshadow pans. This little plate has everything you need for a really simple every day look, but you can also do a very nice and elaborated smoekey eye!

Three of the shadows are matte and one is a glittery metallic champagne gold rose color that is just to die for. It's so beautiful! The range of colors is really nice -- you have a nice rich dark brown (noche), a warmer brown to use a transition shade (freckles), a really soft pink to use as an all over the lid (distressed) and the stunning sparkly pink (vivacious).

Colour Pop shadows are known to be very pigmented and to be really easy to blend. And yes, they are. Even a noob like me can work this out. There is a little bit of fallout with the glittery shadow, but it's completely manageable.

Honestly I'm really happy with this, and as you can notice from the pictures I've used it a few times already. I really like to just swipe on a little bit of freckles all over my eyelid and to blend it really quickly and it gives me just the extra pop that I need. Some days when I'm feeling adventurous, I just tap a little bit of vivacious on my inner corners, like you would with an highlighter.

Quick Tip # 7 | Ask for a sample

I don't know if any of you do this or not, but this is something that I've started doing and that I think is really clever.

Whenever I buy a perfume to give as a gift -- for Christmas or birthdays or whatever -- I always ask for a sample of that same perfume and I add it to the gift.  Most stores will fill up one of those sample spray baby bottles for free or for a really small price. This way the person to whom you give the perfume can smell it and try it out before opening the big expensive packaging. And if they don't like it, they can easily take it back to the store and exchange it. Perfume is a super personal thing, and unless you  are buying a fragrance that you know the person likes, you might be wasting your money. I'm weird about smells and I can't tell you how many times I've received bottles of perfume that I hated the smell.

Review | LUSH Dirty Springwash Shower Gel

I know --  I know,  another lush product. I like Lush, you know that. And every time I go to the store I get tempted to get stuff that I have never tried before! They have so many awesome products!

I've not been very adventurous with Lush body washes. Mainly because I really like supermarket brands for this. I love Dove and Nivea -- they're my favorite and the price point is really good! And usually if I want something to shower from Lush I get a piece of Serendipity Soap. But on my last trip to Lush, the girl there sold me this shower gel. It's called Dirty Springwash, and it's a minty fresh shower gel, that makes your skin all tingly, like a cool dip in a mountain spring! It's cool for summer, because it's really refreshing. It has spearmint and menthol crystals, that leave you feeling super invigorated! it's also loaded with sea salt, to help softening your skin! It is truly a shower gel --  it has the consistency of a gel, with just the right thickness. And I love it's color -- it's so beautiful! 

I don't know if it's the minty smell, but this makes me feel perfectly fresh and clean. The smell is really intense if you smell it right off the bottle, yes. It almost smells like mint toothpaste, lets be honest. But in the shower, it feels really good. But don't worry, it is in't that overwhelming on your body. It's really refreshing and perfect for a shower on really hot summer day!

Things are not well around here... Life is hard. Growing up is horrible.

NEW IN MY CLOSET | Massimo Dutti

-- I love to shop at Massimo Dutti. The stores are always so neat, everything is in it's rightful place, it is such an elegant and exclusive experience... The customer service there is always excellent! Yes, their stuff is more expensive. But you feel so fancy when they hand you over an nice quality bag with your stuff inside... and when you buy shoes or bags they even give you a cotton bag to protect them ! So good! --
