Hello beauties!

First of all: MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope y'all are enjoying this holiday season :)
Today I would like to show you my 2021 favourite products that I've been using to take care of my hair.
I told you I wanted to start posting more about my hair journey, so if you missed my last post, you should check it because I share some important tips on how to boost your curls!

Before starting, I'd like to clarify that my type of curls are 3B/3C, in case you would like to check out these products!

1. Shampoo's
I've tried different shampoo's, but this is one of my favourites: Shea Moisture Raw Shea
I use it regularly, when I want a complete wash. As I have curly hair, I don't tend to wash my hair more than 2 times a week, as I really feel it doesn't need it.
But one or twice a month I use a clarifying type of shampoo to clean it more thoroughly. When I do that I use the Cantu Avocado shampoo, it works really well plus it smells amazing!

2. Conditioner
My favourite 2021 conditioner is the Tea Tree deep nourishing conditioner by Beauty Formulas. I discovered it through a tik tok where this girl was recommending it and when I actually checked it online it was sold out. Some months later I was shopping and I accidentally found it so I didn't hesitate in getting it! It's super affordable, it only costs: 1,50€. I really like how my hair looks after using it- even though it has a strong smell of tea tree oil (which doesn't really bother me) but if you don't like this smell then I would beware. Lots of people use it for co-wash as well :)

3. Hair Mask
The only one I've used is the Aunt Jackie's Butter Fusions Curl Spell Moisture Mask.
I have to say: this smells AMAZING! I can't even describe the smell but it's just incredible.
I use this mask usually once a month, when I feel my hair really needs a hydrating boost. I usually use it when I wash my hair with the clarifying shampoo, as this one is quite strong. If i want a deeper hydrating effect I put on a thermal hat for 10 minutes.
4. Leave in conditioner
My absolute favourite leave in conditioner is the Curls Blueberry bliss. During summer I tended to put on more quantity as I felt my hair needed to stay more hydrated. I use this one as my first step when it comes to style my hair.

5. Styling gel
Some people use styling foams, but I like to use styling gels. I've tried different ones but my favourite so far is the Camille Rose Lavender Extra Hold. This one is suuuper thick so I only use a small amount -I really like how my hair looks after using it. Also, it's a bit expensive, but it lasts for a really long time!

At the moment I'm trying new products (including a brazilian brand called Lola Cosmetics) - but it's too early to take conclusions as I need to use them more.
Have you tried any of these products that I mention?
What type of hair do you have?

Hello beauties!

Today I want to show you some of the make up and cosmetics that I've bought during Black Friday offers. To be honest with you I feel like this year I haven't bought as much stuff as last year- also I feel like there weren't as many offers or products as in 2020. Lot of the things I wanted to check out were already sold out or out of stock, also the stuff wasn't as discounted as I was expecting in comparison with last year.

Buuuuutt I got me some make up that was on my wishlist for a long time - and discounted - which is always good!

1. KVD Beauty 'Everyday stars' kit
I've been wanting to try the famous tattoo liner by KVD for a long time, so I found this kit where it comes alongside a blush and a lipstick. I thought it was very nice and also good value so I thought why not? Also both the colours of the blush and lipstick are really beautiful.

2. Fenty Beauty Pro Filtr Soft Matte Powder Foundation
I was in the search of a powder foundation and I've always heard good reviews about Fenty Beauty ones. I have some Fenty Beauty products and the quality is amazing so I thought it would be good to buy this product. I am really looking forward to try it on!

What about you, did you buy lot of things?
have you tried any of these?


Hello beauties!

Today I'm here to talk about Sculptshe, an online shapewear and active wear store. I've talked to you about it in the past, and this time i'm collaborating with them again to update you with all the information and the amazing products that they offer in their webiste!

Now, if it's the first time you hear/read about Sculptshe, I recommend you to keep reading! On their website you can find a huge variety of shapewear, waist trainers, bodysuits and different types of active wear! Plus they ensure that the quality of their products is top tier: either by using the best tecnhology, techniques and materials.

Shapewear is a good way to define your body even more -if that's what you are looking for. Every body shape is beautiful and powerful on it's on way, and Sculptshe encourages that by helping everyone achieve their own confidence and sexuality the way it is desired. If you check their website, you will find lots of styles of shapewear - among other items that i mentioned before - but, I have to say that one of my favourite types is the thong shapewear bodysuit. I tend to wear lots of dresses and skirts, and thong is always a good way to show your curves without excessively mark undergarments. 

You can find this one in different sizes and colours, plus it has adjustable straps, which is always very helpful!

But if you are looking for something that helps you shape your body on a higher level, then you should check a full body compression garment. This one has a full body minimizing effect that is perfect for a quick recovery after surgery. You can also find it in different colours and sizes, and it has lot of benefits: open crotch design, wide straps with hooks that adjust to guarantee comfort, reduces and supports the waist, hips, thighs and entire abdomen, and a long etcetera that you should definitely check out!

If you are interested in any of their products, don't hesitate to visit their website and have a look around. It is very easy and intuitive to use, and also, you will find lots of discounts and promotions - like their black friday sales event :)

What do you think of Sculpshe?
Do you wear this type of garments?

Hello beauties!

You all know how much I love make up and Sanrio characters - I love everything that is kawaii tbh. So when a make up brand releases a collection in collaboration with Sanrio or anything cute I just can't help myself but falling in love with it and wanting to get everything (lol!).

It's not the first time that Wet N Wild collaborates with Sanrio. Their first collaboration was the 'Wet N Wild x My Melody & Kuromi' which i talked about on this post. I could only get my hands on the blush + highlighter palette and one of the lipsticks as I discovered it way too late... 
I guess they were really happy with how the collaboration went so they have decided to release a second one featuring "Little twin Stars"!

I have to say I like everything that's on it! I feel like this second collaboration has more products compared to the first one. The eyeshadow palette colours include warm & pastel tones such as blue and pink/purple ones which makes it very cute and matches perfectly the spirit of the characters.

Let me tell you what it includes:

- 15 pan eyeshadow Palette
- Primer / setting spray
- Two blush / highlighters palettes
- 4 eye pencils kit
- Brushes & make up sponges
- Lipsticks & lip glosses
- Lip masks
- A cute make up brush cup
- Make up sponge case
- Make up bag

The packaging is beyond beautiful and kawaii, full of pastel colours which gets in line perfectly with the Sanrio characters Kiki & Lala! Also they sell a box that contains the whole collection - it costs $74,99.

If you are from the US you can get this collection throught the Wet N Wild official website and also at Ulta stores. Unfortunately Wet N Wild doesn't ship internationally so I'm just hoping this collection arribes to more countries! (hopefully Spain is one of them >.<).

What do you think of this collection?
Would you buy it?


Hello beauties!

Today I want to introduce you to a website called Up2step, an online shop where you can find all type of shoes: from sandals, to heels, boots, pump shoes etc.

I have to admit it: I love shoes! And even though I think some classic designs never get old and are amazingly developed, I like to be updated with the last fashion trends and styles. That's why Up2step is the perfect place to find the latest designs and trends: because not only they are aware of the latest trends in the fashion shoe industry but they also offer classical styles at affordable prices and with an excellent quality!

I don't tend to wear super high heels, as I am not used to them and my feet always end up hurting quite a lot (even though i love them). But I like to wear  shorter heels, specially clear heel shoes! They add a nice touch to every outfit plus they are super easy to combine! When checking their website I was amazed by the variety of mules that they offer, as they have them i lots of different styles. One of my favourites was this one:

Shop product

I liked the fact that they have these specific ones in different colours, for example: they also offer it with the sole in brown colour! When checking out the different shoes in their website, you will see how easy and intuitive is to shop through their website. They detail absolutely everything about each style so you have no problems when checking out sizes, materials, etc. Also, they have everything divided by sections depending on the shoe style that you are looking for and something really handy is the fact that you can filter your search by the colours that you want, sizes, prices, materials, heel height and even ocasion!

You can find other clear shoes styles, in different colours and heel sizes - like the ones in the following links:

As you can see, they offer a large variety of styles and types of shoes! Plus, they offer free shipping in purchases over $40! We all know that sometimes buying a product online such as shoes can be make you feel a bit skeptical, but in Up2step you can feel 100% secure, as it's total safe to buy and they also offer returns and refunds. There's also a section in their website called "blog" where you can find videos and reviews of their products, which comes in very handy :)

What about you, 
What kind of shoes do you like?
Which style do you use to wear?


Hello beauties!

It's been a while since I've written a post about what I've been watching lately, so I thought it would be a good idea to actually share it with you!

1. Sex Education season 3

I feel like Sex Education keeps getting better and better with every season that comes out! I really like the evolution of the characters and the topics that are talked about. Plus the humor is amazing, i totally recommend it!

2. Squid Game

I'd say Squid Game is one of the most viral and popular series at the moment and one of the biggest realeases this year! I liked it even though it's quite impressive and violent, i felt a bit upset with the end though... 

3. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 6

This is my go to reality show when I don't feel like watching anything else... At the moment I'm watching the 6th season and I have 5 more seasons to go lol! If you like KUWTK then you probably will like this one! I watch it through Hayu but there are some seasons uploaded on Netflix!

4. Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings

I love Marvel so of course I had to go to the cinema to watch this one. I have to say that I completely loved it! The story, the characters and the animations are mindblowing and I can't wait to see what's coming next :) I totally recommend it.

5. Dune

I haven't read any of the books, so for me it was a little hard to understand some parts and symbolisms of the film. I felt that the beggining was quite slow but i guess they had to take their time to explain everything - specially if they are following the book. Overall i liked it, but it felt slow and long.

At the moment I'm watching the third season of 'You' and this week I'll go to the cinema to watch the second Venom movie (I can't wait >.<!)
What about you,

What are you watching at the moment?
Have you watched any of these series / movies?

Hello beauties!

In today's post I want to talk to you about some tricks that will help you take more advantage of your curls and take them to another level! I have natural curly hair and it wasn't until last year when I decided to start taking more care of it - I started my journey with the curly girl method.
So if you decide to give it a chance, here are some begginer's tricks that will help you boost your curls! I'm not a professional, but these will definitely make a difference - trust me!

But before getting into it, it would be very helpful for yourself to know what type of curls/hair you have, so you can have a better idea of what your hair needs.

*None of the photos (except one) belong to me, credits to its authors*

1. Stop using towels to dry your hair
Instead use an old cotton t-shirt or a microfibre towel as they are smoother and help to dry the hair without creating any type of frizz! This will allow your curls to be more defined.

2. Avoid using curl defining foams that contain a lot of alcohol
I used to define my hair with curl defining foams that contained a high % of alcohol but they used to dry and frizz my hair A LOT (specially after some days without washing it). My recommendation is to use a curl cream or defining foam with less alcohol and hair-harming ingredients - your hair will get more hydrated and defined (even without washing it for some days). The one I use is the Lavender crush defining gel by Camille Rose and I recommend it a lot (plus it lasts ages).

3. Use a hair diffuser when drying your hair
Using a hair diffuser always helps to get your curls more defined! You can buy a hair dryer that comes with a diffuser or you can get one that's only for wavy/curly hair- as the one I use called Bellissima. I got it on Amazon and I totally recommend it.

4. Always keep you hair hydrated: use hair conditioner and masks
It's very important to keep you hair hydrated. I recommend using hair conditioner when washing your hair and also leave in hair conditioners before styling it! Masks are good to use them twice a month or when you feel you hair needs a hydrating boost!

5. Know your type of hair 
It helps to know what type of hair you have and what it needs! This way you have a better idea of how to treat it and how to take care of it. I got a lot of information from websites and from youtube, also I found a website where they offered counseling (paying of course), but it helped me a lot!

Hope you liked this post and this type of content :)
I'll keep writing more posts related to this!

Do you do any of these tricks?
Do you have curly hair?

Hello beauties!

If you love cute and kawaii stuff, love Sanrio and are into make up and cosmetics then you should keep reading! Nowadays there are lots of cosmetic brands which decide to collaborate and release a line featuring one of Sanrio characters: specially Hello Kitty and My Melody. I want to show you a few of these collaborations, some of them are still available and you can get them online! :)

*None of the photos belong to me, credits to its authors

1. Colourpop x Hello Kitty

It's not the first time Colourpop releases a Hello Kitty collaboration. The first one was launched last Christmas and they released a new one this summer called Tropical Scape. I had to get my hands on some of the products, Colourpop is just an amazing brand: the quality never fails to impress and the prices are super affordable! You can still find it on their website, plus colourpop ships internationally! (Let me know if you would like me to do a review!)

2. Wet N Wild x My Melody & Kuromi

We all know how amazing is Wet N Wild: they offer low cost make up and the quality of their products is above excellent. But if you mix it with Sanrio then it's even better! I discovered this collection way too late so I could just get my hands on the blush palette and a lipstick as the rest of it was sold out everywhere :( I can tell you the quality is excellent and it's super kawaii, I'd have loved to get the eyeshadow palette! Sadly I believe it's already sold out almost everywhere...

3. The Creme shop x Hello Kitty & Friends

I discovered this brand recently and trust me when I tell you this collection is so cute! You can find from face masks, lip balms, hand creams to even lipsticks and a long etcetera of cosmetics! The best part: everythig is Sanrio themed! They practically ship within the US but they offer international shipping to some countries (not to Spain sadly...)

4. Cathy Doll x Hello Kitty

You can find this one on YesStyle, and it's super kawaii as well! Just look at it, don't you feel like getting absolutely everything? >.<

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know what you think!
Would you buy any of these collections?
Do you own any Sanrio make up?

Kisses! xoxo
