My Life | Uptade

My live is chaotic right now. I have so many things to do at work that I don't even know where (or how) to start. I'm doing things that I've never done before, so before seven starting I need to learn. That's what they call "Lear by doing". And it sounds perfect and awesome, but when they impose you strick, close deadlines, it's not that fun.

I have an office party tomorrow night, and I don't even have a dress yet. I REALLY need to go shopping for something today. The party is at a garden, so I'm thinking about buying something with flowers. Have you seen any cute dresses with flowers somewhere?

And I'm still waiting for my colourpop order. It was stuck in costumes for like a month and now I have to pay some tax because it's imported products. And I need to go the post office to pick it up. But the post office is only open on weekdays from 9am to 6pm which is exactly my work schedule, so yeah.




I'm really stressed, can you tell?

Look4you | Eyebrow Threading

Recently I've started to get my eyebrows threaded.
I get my eyebrows done, every two weeks or so. But usually I go to this hair salon, near my house: the lady there does a great job! Really, she first draws my eyebrows with a brow pencil, she shapes them really really well, but she uses wax. I really like her work, but I decided I wanted to try threading. I know this technique has been around for a while but I really never felt like giving it a try. But now that I did, let's just say -- I was not disappointed! 

It's weird. First because it hurts more than waxing or tweezing. It feels like their are plucking every single hair individually. She also asked to me pull my eyelids, and stretch my skin in multiple directions. And made me cry and sneeze a lot! At the end, she gave a massage with some aloé-vera soothing gel, she combed and filled my brows, and OMG it was great! She asked me clearly what I wanted, and she gave me advice on what she thinks my brows should look like. And she was checking with me all the time! She gave me the mirror and she kept asking if I was happy with the shape. Initially I thought that this was just that particular girl, but apparently this is a typical procedure of when you get you eyebrows threaded -- I've been there a couple of times and it's always like this! And honestly since I've stared to go there, my brows look so much better!



I go to this particular place -- Look4You -- it was highly recommended by some cool girls I know, and I'm recommending it to you too! The girls there are really, really good and extremely professional. And very nice too! It's a bit expensive, yeah, but it's totally worth it!

GLAMOUROSA | High End Products With Awesome Prices + Discount Code

You know I love to shop online... I'm honestly starting to hate going to physical stores, to wait in lines to pay or to try out stuff.  Including make up and beauty products... Recently I've come into this super cool store, called GLAMOUROSA, with the most awesome prices and great discounts! If you are like me and you like expensive brands, you know the struggle of managing expensive prices.




GLAMOUROSA is a portuguese online store that sells the most awesome, trendy, high-end brands, at really really good prices! They have all type of products, from make-up, skin-care, fragrances, hair... From what I've seen, almost every product has at least a 15% discount over their regular price, which is pretty awesome!    They guaranteed me that all their products are genuine!
Another cool thing -- they offer FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING for orders over 60€, which honestly is not hard to reach. And they always, ALWAYS, send you some samples of cool new products for you to try! 

Here are some products that currently on my wishlist. I know their prices at Sephora and so, and I can't guarantee you that they are way cheaper here.



And because they are super super awesome, they gave me a 5% discount code to share with you! I know, 5% isn't a lot, but don't forget that all their products have already pretty good discounts! Just use the code 'thenotsogirlygirl' at the end of your purchase!

Review | LUSH Seanik Shampoo Bar

On my last trip to Lush, they were out of my regular Shampoo Bar, and I decided to that this time I was going to try a new bar. I asked the sales girl and she suggested I try this one -- Seanik. 
This beautiful blue bar has plenty of ingredients to soften and revitalize your hair. First up, there's a ton of nori seaweed (yup, like the ones you eat on sushi!) packed into each bar, which is rich in protein and helps to strengthen hair and make it silky soft in both look and feel. It has lemon that helps with natural shine, without making it look greasy or oily. And Salt! This shampoo bar has a ton of salt, which helps with volume and grease control. 


I found it great for summer, specially because it has a very tropical, beach-y smell because of all the seaweed, lemon and jasmine essential oil. Unfortunately, the smell doesn't really linger around. But you get that beach hair feeling, without the dryness. It gives you some extra volume at the roost, without being too much volume. But since it does contain a lot of salt, this is not appropriate for you if you wash you hair every day. 

I really, really, like it.

Wishlist | La Vie En Rose

 -- Please be nice and supportive and click on at least one of the pictures! I'd do the same for you. Thank you! -- 

I'm not too into pink, but I have to admit that pink is super trending this year. There's one shade -- a pastel-ish tone, that is called the millennial pink, because it super popular among this generation. 
Pink is definitely not my color, but I really like small pink details. I think it's a good way to add a feminine, girly touch to an outfit our to our life.
