Weekly photos #29

I've been busy with college essays and all of that and I barely have any time to do other things. Well, I don't have time because of that and because I watch too many tv shows and that consumes a lot of my free time. But anyways, here are some pictures from this week:

1. Pomegranates are my favorite fruit I think, and I'm obsessed with them, they're so good!!
2. My friends and I made coffee and one of them drew hearts in them. They look kinda weird there, but it was pretty cute. We just love to hang out and talk since we don't see each other every day as we used to (these friends that I'm talking about are the ones I went to school with when I was younger)
3. My sister and I carved this pumpkin. She did the nose and draw the batman logo and I carved the eyes and the mouth. It looked better than what I was expecting, I'm not gonna lie.
4. See this tiny pumpkin? It's actually chocolate! and it is delicious! :)

Nail of the day - Raven Red

I have yet another nail of the day post today. This time it is Raven Red by Revlon, and this is also a great color for the fall and winter time. It's a deep red color, so it's not very original but it's nice to have a color (or a few) like this in your nail polish collection.

These photos have been taken under natural light and I applied 2 coats of the nail polish. It's very creamy and it doesn't chip easy (at least that's my experience).


ps: I'm not having a lot of posts up because I had photos ready in one of my memory cards and I lost it, so I have to retake them and I'm busy with college and everything, but I'm catching up so there will be more posts up soon :)

I can't wait until winter break! haha I'm so tired because of college and I just don't like going. I don't want to complain because I know in the end it's good for me, but at the moment it doesn't seem like it. Anyway, I've met a few people who are making it a little better, so I'm grateful for that.

1. I love my new Revlon nail polish! I think it screams fall and I know I'm going to be wearing it a lot. If you want to know what color it is, check out my nail of the day post :)
2. I took that picture after I had to go up the stairs in my building because someone was in line on the elevator already and one of them was broken. I was extremely tired.
3. And here's a picture inside the elevator. I took it because I don't do stuff with my hair very often, so yeah, I had a braid that day.
4. My father bought this pumpkin the other day after I said that I wanted to carve one, so I might do that this week. I'll show you the result on my next weekly post, but I don't think it's going to turn out right haha

Nail of the day - Jaded Night

I had never used a Revlon nail polish before but I have to say that I'm in love with the quality of this nail polish. It is Jaded Night and there's a sticker on the bottle that says it's a new shade but it might not be, I don't know.

Anyway, this is a dark green color, which I feel it's perfect for fall. I like that it is very creamy and it was almost opaque with just one coat.

2 coats, natural light
I also got another Revlon nail polish, so I'll be showing you that one soon.

How much is my face worth?

I've been seeing this post all over blogger and thought it was very interesting and fun to do, so I decided to do it myself.  It basically consists on listing all the products you use on your face on a daily basis to do your make up and add up the prices to see "how much is your face worth".

I just want to say that some products may be different every day like blush, lipstick, lipgloss and/or eyeshadow, but I tried to pick middle-priced items. Also, prices here are more expensive, so if you but these things somewhere else, it'd be different.

  • Pond's "equilibrian-t" moisturizer - 19€ (Actually my mom bought this for me and she doesn't remember the exact price but she said around 18-20€)
  • Make up for ever HD foundation - 38€
  • Dream matte powder by Maybelline - 11€
  • Garnier dark circle roll on - 8.50€
  • Maybelline pure mineral concealer - 7.50€
  • Too faced shadow insurance - 22.15€
  • Urban Decay Naked palette - 38€ (at the time I bought it)
  • NYX slide on eyeliner - 6.20€
  • Maybelline colossal volume express mascara - 11€
  • MAC blush - 22€
  • Maybelline lipstick - 10€
  • NYX round lip gloss - 2€
  • Urban Decay all nighter spray - 18€
19+38+11+8.5+7.5+22.15+38+6.20+11+22+10+2+18= 213.35€

213.35€ is a lot of money for every day make up, but obviously these products last a long time and you don't need to replace most of them in a really long time.

Weekly photos #27

I've been very busy with college lately and I feel like I have no time to do other stuff. It's consuming a lot of time and my week seems quite short, that's one of the reasons why I don't like college, but I only have 2 more years to go including this one.

1. Gossip Girl's new season has started, yay! I've been watching this show since day one and I love it. It's true that I love too many tv shows, but this one is no exception. If you've never watched it, you should :)
2. I came home from university one day and that was sitting on my desk. I couldn't contain my excitement! haha I'll be doing a haul soon.
3. So the Jonas Brothers are back and their concert in New York was AMAZING! I obviously couldn't go, but they had these online tickets for $10 so you could watch an online live streaming and those have been the best $10 I've ever spent in my life! They're my favorite band and I'm so happy they're performing together again :)
4. I was going through my bags and I found this in one of them, the one I wore when I went to London. Nando's was so good. But this leads me to something different, because my sister and I might be going to London for a few days during Christmas time!!!!! I really want to go see Wicked (the musical) and my sister's never been to London, so we're thinking about it....well, she's thinking about it because to me it's an easy yes!

Outfit of the day | going to class

This is what I wore one day last week to go to class. I never know what to wear this time of the day because it's not warm enough for sandals but not cold enough for sweaters, so this is what I end up with.

Tank top - Zara
Shirt - Zara
Jeggings - Stradivarius
Boots - Bershka
Necklace - ASOS

Please let me know if you want to see more outfit of the day posts, since I'm doing videos on them for my YouTube channel, I don't mind taking a few photos to post here as well.

Wishlist | Tory Burch

I've been eyeing these things for a while even though they're pretty expensive. For now, I'm saving to buy the bag, but after I get it I don't know if I'll try to save for any of the others.

Tory Burch wishlist

1. City Satchel - 360.42€ / $450 - I think this bag is very cute, simple and classic at the same time; that's why I don't mind spending that much money on it, because I know it's going to last a very long time and it's (pretty much) always going to be on trend.

2. Rings bracelet - 132.15€ / $165 - I don't know why I like this, but recently I've been loving bulky and chunky jewelry. 

3. Parker Cap Toe logo flats - 200.23€ / $250 - I think these are very pretty and perfect for fall and winter. I really want a pair of Tory Burch flats, so these ones might be it.

4. Robinson zip coin case - 76.09€ / $95 - This is a very classy wallet, something that you're going to like for a long time and you're not going to get tired of.

Do you like Tory Burch?

Weekly photos #26

My first week of my third year in college has ended and I'm still trying to get used to my new schedule. We're still taking it slow but I think my classes are about to get harder and harder. I'm hopefully going to have a good time anyways with all my old friends and my new ones.

1. First day of class, waiting for the professor. As you can see no one seats in the first few rows lol
2. I believe that's what I wore my second day of class, so tuesday. If you want to see what I wore every single day of the week, you can check out my newest youtube video.
3. The subway's been really slow this week, I don't know what's up with it but it's been awful. As you can see in that picture the first train was coming in 1 minute and the one after that in 9, which is crazy because they usually come every 2-3 minutes.
4. My pink converse sneakers (or whatever you call them).

5. Those are all the different tea flavors I have currently at home. I love tea and I'm willing to try every single flavor; I recently got that mint chocolate one and it was delicious!
6. A few L'Oreal products I bought the other day.
7. This is a Harry Potter set they have in stores here right now. I don't even know how expensive it is because it doesn't say on the box, so I'm guessing it's very pricey. It's really cool, but my mom would kill me if I get it lol
8. I just came back from hanging out with my two best friends who I'm friends with since we were little and, as you can see, we got frozen yogurt.

September 2012 Favorites!

I know it's already October 6th but better late than ever, right? Anyway I wanted to show you my favorite products for the month of September since I did a video on it on my YouTube channel and I want you guys to see it as well.

1. Hervana blush by Benefit: I love pink blushes and this one is no exception. Even though it's a little bit on the pricier side, this blush is amazing and I think everyone who tries it, loves it. If you want to see a picture of what the blush actually looks like, click HERE.
2. EOS lip balm in Strawberry Sorbet: EOS lip balms are very moisturizing and this one smells really good. I sometimes apply it just because I want to smell/taste it.
3. Stay Don't Stray primer by Benefit: This is not only an eyeshadow primer, it also works for concealer, and I'd say it even has a little bit of coverage. I don't love it as much as my Shadow Insurance, but it's amazing!
4. Color Tattoo eyeshadow by Maybelline in On and On Bronze: I know this has a different name in the US but that's what it's called here. Anyway, the pigmentation is amazing and it stays in place a long time.
5. Urban Decay lip gloss in Naked: this came with my Naked 2 palette and I didn't pay much attention to it but I've been loving it recently, I'm even going to get the full size. The color looks kind of clear or nude on your lips but the glossy effect is amazing.

6. Pink body mist by Victoria's Secret: this scent is incredible. I regret getting the travel size instead of the big one because I can't get it in my country, but next time I'm in the US I'm getting the big bottle.
7. Voyage by Herm├Ęs: I only have this little sample but I love the smell. When I got it I thought it was a more adult scent, but I'm grown to love it. I don't know if I'd ever get the full size, but it's a great scent.
8. Make an Entrance by China Glaze: I don't know what to say about this, only that it's one of my favorite nail polishes ever.
9. Clean & Clear advantage spot treatment: this doesn't work like it says but I do see improvement on my pimples, so even if it works slow, I think you all should give it a try.

What are your September favorites?

Wedge by MAC | Review and Swatches

As I told you in my Satin Taupe review, on that trip to MAC I also got another eyeshadow: Wedge. This one is less known but I also think it's an essential for anyone that likes wearing eyeshadow.

Wedge is a matte brown color very comparable to Naked by Urban Decay, although I'd say Wedge is a little bit darker, but very slightly. I use Naked a lot and sometimes I just don't like to get the whole palette out just for one color, so I though this would be very nice. If you don't own the Naked Palette I really recommend you buy this one.

You can create a lot of neutral looks with this eyeshadow or you can use it in your crease as a blending color. MAC eyeshadows have amazing quality, and this one is no exception as you can see in the swatch below:
