Christmas spirit

Hi,
 Its been so long since i made a post. I can not keep up with this i suppose. I am such a bad blogger :(
sniff sniff. Well i will keep trying my best here. So i will make a review of my Christmas Holidays.

Another Christmas in Dublin, this time my family from Peru wasn't here. i had no guest at home so didn't feel the motivation to decorate this year. We only put some decor in the stairs and chimney.
I wanted to get a Christmas Tree on the sales as we have always been buying a real Christmas tree since i arrive to Ireland. People here get very excited about the smell of Christmas for them is the fresh smell of the Christmas trees and that brings them good memories for when they were kids. On my case the smell that reminds me of Christmas is the smell of fireworks and turkey baking in the local Boulangerie.
And there is none of that here in Ireland, for some reason not even turkeys smell the same. Would probably be the seasoning we use over there.

I will go straight to the presents :)
I've got a new Nikon coolpix l820 camera, im supper excited about it. It makes very nice pictures. Still no DSLR but its a good start. I am thinking on using it for a couple of months and then sell it and instead get a proper DSLR. It will be my investment.
I also got a gorgeous perfume that i put my eye into since a friend received it for  her birthday. Miss Dior.
I am very happy with that one, or J'adore would have been also nice.

Right after Christmas i organized a small tea party with my Peruvian friends at my house.
Organizing things at your house could be stressing but i did enjoy it all.



How was your Christmas?

First Glossybox Review - February

Few weeks ago  i received my first Glossy box. I subscribe for 3 months just to test how is goes.
The second box is about to arrive and i haven't post my review about the first one..
Presentation
I look soo adorable and nice looking, a lot of effort in just the box. But i found it a good use and store some makeup on it ;)
Anatomicals - shower gel 
I just used it last nice. not very foamy it says flowers smell, and it does smell of roses, real roses, not sure that is a nice smell. Like water from a roses flower base.  Dont get me wrong it was good, but not great. I wouldn't buy it again.
Docteur Renaud - daily face cream
Haven't test it yet. because it says for dry skin and i have oily skin, when i signed up they asked me a bunch of questions one of those questions was my type of skin, thinking we will receive customized products. But no we don't.
Model Co - eye shadows
The colours are very nice and basic. and it comes handy for the purse and retouch your make-up if you are on a night out.
But the brush is very plain those that have a sponge in both ends.
Mica Bella- blush
The colour is very nice , like a peachy golden. The pigment is not too strong though. You will probably will need to apply a generous amount of product to be seen.
HelenE - lipstick
i really liked the colour of this lipstick, i didn't have this colour before Raspberry, or any other lipstick from this brand.
And because it was valentines month, we also received a heart shaped lolly pop.

Look forward to see what is coming next month.

Little treats

This perfume Giorgio Armani Code Women is one of my favourites, its a bit strong, but i think its alright to use it  during the night, or in a  night out, date. And a little bit not tons of it.
The male version was such a turn on until one of my bosses was using it too..haha. 
in fairness it smells very good. same as pour elle version. It comes with a body lotion that also smells really good. its not that great for hydratation but will lease a nice sensual smell.
 I would definitely buy this again, love it, makes me feel daring and sexy in addition to feeling sweet and feminime.

And the watch from Michael Kors was a Christmas pressie. I was dying to get a watch like that.
its very sporty, feminine looking i just adore it.. it is a stainless rose gold with a chronometer watch with little diamons and also displays a little date calendar.

NoExcuses lets shop

Hi all, I know its very random when i do any posts on my blog, there has been so much s*** going on that made me feel very down and not in the creative mood that all.
I have been on exams, had family coming over from Peru  for the xmas holidays and above it all I lost a special someone that i though was my real friend but apparently he wasn't. Its so complicated and private to explain that i wont even go there.
But lets cheer up, as the Noah and the Whale song says - L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N :)

I have been doing some retail therapy , YES! i had too, with all those gaps on my time that i used to spend it with someone i have been instead doing shopping.. and meeting old friends that i got a bit forgotten.(my bad).

Black Outfits - Black Friday

It doesnt come from me, but black clothes is a must have on every girls wardrobe, you will never go wrong.
i already got a pair of black shirts and are so wearable with skirts or colour pants.

What is BlackFriday?
"..Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. On this day, most major retailers open extremely early and offer promotional sales to kick off the holiday shopping season, similar to Boxing Day sales in many Commonwealth Nations. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but many non-retail employers also observe this day as a holiday along with Thanksgiving, giving their employees the day off, thereby increasing the number of potential shoppers...."

[DIY] Chevron Nails gray & turquoise

Hi all,
First I would like to start saying how excited I am for getting comments and see new people is following my blog. Woohoo. Thank you very mucho ;)

The other day I paint my nails of gray. Is a very light gray from Essence. Very cheap, I got it in a chemist and it cost me a euro, probably not many liked the color.
Anyways, I decided to make it a little bit more funky, I had the idea of making the chevron design for a while now.. so I decided to make it on gray and green (turquoise).


No need of extra utensils, just 2 color nail varnish with a decent brush.
Apply first coat all over the nail.
Pain a diagonal with another color,
Then another diagonal like forming an X
Apply again grey forming another X or V right below the green.
Repeat the same as much as you can. I can only get 2 green lines and 3 gray lines.
if you don’t fancy repeating it you can try using tape to protect the base coat.

Here is what I got:
