Turning 36

Yeap! Today's my B-Day and I'm turning 36! And I love cute things more and more everyday, I keep obsessing over K-pop and I still wear shorts (not really short shorts because I've never been a fan of those) and tank tops without a bra.

Though everyone says I look younger (everyone thinks I look under 27 and in the USA no one thinks I'm older than 21), I have noticed some changes in me during this last year that kind of worry me because they mean I'm getting older!

The first of those changes are the white hairs. I already had some but this last year, the white hairs have kind of invaded my head. I have lots now and I cannot stand them. I cannot colour my hair every four weeks, I need to wait to at least for 6 weeks or my scalp will get really irritated so when I start noticing some white highlights in the roots on the fourth week after I colured my hair, I try to comb my hair in a way that those white hairs are not noticeable while waiting for two more weeks to go by, till I can color my hair again.

The second change I noticed while looking at some pictures from last year was that I get some wrinkles arround my eyes when I smile. I never used any eye cream, in fact, I never believed in them: they have the same ingredients as some face creams and they cost double for a miserable quantity. But I come to thinking that I might need to use some type of cream for my eye area other than my moisturizer. I have also been investigating on the net and I think I might try face yoga: it's free (there are lots of videos with exercices in Youtube) and, who knows, it might work...

And the third change is my arms. I've never been very sporty myself but this last year I have started doing a bit of exercise but only directed to the zone bellow my belly, and now I regret I didn't pay more attention to my arms, for they feel kind of jell-o, if you know what I mean. So, I will have to include some exercises to tone my arms this year.

Why does it take quite an effort to mantain yourself when you get older?

Anyways, here's the sentence that was on the label of my tea this morning: "Experience you cannot learn".
And I have a lot of things to try and experience ;>

♥Take care and see you soon!♥

PS: I will be posting pictures from my trip to Venice in my next post so, stay tunned!

Beauty favourites of July and August 2013

¡Hi, there!

Better late than never, that's what they say. And here I am- back with some beauty favourites from July and August.

In no particular order:

1. UniqOne - All In One Hair Treatment. 150ml

It detangles my mane, tames the frizz, leaves my hair soft and it does not weigh my hair down. I don't know how much it costs because it was a gift from a friend, but I think it's about 14 or 15€.

2. Detangling & Shampoo Brush
I got it because of its cute heart shape. It only costed 1,50€ at Primark. And I love it! It detangles without pulling the hair and my hair lasts clean for longer if I massage my scalp with this brush when shampooing.

3. L'Orèal Paris - Skin perfection. 3 in 1Purifying Micellar Solution 200ml

It takes away even the most stubborn waterproof eye makeup and lip tint without tugging. Just wet a cotton pad with the solution, place it on the eyelids and lashes or the lips for 5 seconds and gently slide the pad away. To take the rest of your makeup off, simply swipe the cotton pad in soft circular motions across your face. It does not irritate my eyes, it's not sticky and it doesn't leave my skin feeling tight. In fact, my skin feels clean and refreshed after using this product to take my makeup off.
It costed 6 € at the drugstore and it lasted me for nearly three months.
If there's one thing they need to improve, it would be the packaging: I hate my cotton pad touching the surface of the bottle. I just don't think that's the most hygienic thing in the world. And then, after you pour the sollution into the pad, the whole surface of the bottle is wet so, there goes a bit of product, unused, everytime.

4. Astor Soft Sensation Lipcolor Butter

A 3 in 1 lip product. I don't dare using this on my cheeks, like I do with most of my lip products, because it's too creamy and shiny, but I just love it on my lips. It hydrates my lips and gives them a touch of color with a glossy finnish. I carry it on my bag ever since I bought it and I have been using it almost everyday. Besides, I find that the shade I got (008 Hug Me) compliments my natural lip color and goes basically with everything. Click here if you want to see my review on the hour on this product.

And, that would be all for now from my side. What about you? Have you tried any of those products? What did you think of them? What products made it to your August favourites?

See you in my next post. ♥Take care!♥
