What I got for Christmas

I have been very spoiled this Christmas by family and friends and I wanted to share with you what I got this year! I'm not writing this post to show off or anything like that, I just personally love reading these posts (yes, I'm veeery curious about stuff like that, not gonna lie) and thought you would too.

A day in London: Camden Market


Hi guys! This week I have one of my last posts about London for you as I'm leaving soon to go back home for Christmas and I won't come back... (*cries*) 

Camden is SUCH a fun area, it's another market, another hipster area with more food and stuff to buy... London is full of places like this, one cooler than the other. I was so lucky when I went because the weather was just beyond amazing and you can really appreciate the vivid colours in the pictures.

My Perfect Three

Today's post is all about the three products that I have been using non-stop for my base lately. Since my skin has become drier and drier, all my other foundations have simply been sitting on top of my patches and enhancing pores and fine lines. Not a good look, let me tell you! Plus, the colour match wasn't that great anymore, either. So I went out and bought three products and I couldn't be happier. Without further ado, these are my new winter faves:

Christmas Wishlist

Who is excited for Christmas? I know I am! The festive season has started, the whole city sparkles in fairylights and Christmas decoration, John Lewis' Christmas ad has made me want a penguin like crazy and I can't wait to go to Winter Wonderland. Christmas in London is just amazing!!

When it comes around this time of the year, I see so many things I like and of course I don't need any of these, but wishes and dreams are allowed, aren't they?

A day in London: Shoreditch and Brick Lane Market

Shoreditch has become one of my favourite areas in London. It is known to be the "Hipster" part of the town and a lot of students live here. This creates such a fun, young and buzzing atmosphere and there are thousands of bars, pubs and clubs. On the weekends, one of the biggest markets in London takes place, which actually is a mix of several smaller ones such as the Old Spitalfields Market and the Brick Lane Market. But without further ado, I'll let the pictures talk for themselves!

My Skincare Routine

While I'm writing this, I'm all snuggled up in bed, a Vanilla Muji candle is burning on the table next to me and I'm sipping on a camomile and honey tea... yup, I'm so ready for autumn and winter. And you? Are you feeling the sweater weather?

Now that we are moving into colder months, I feel like I have to take extra care of my skin to protect it. I tend to get a few dry patches here and there at this time of the year and my skin seems very dull lately. Plus, I'm putting more emphasis on cleaning my skin properly and getting rid of all the makeup, so I'm sticking to a strict 3-step-cleanse that has been working amazingly for me! So let's start with the morning....

A day in London: Borough Market

Finally a Sunday post again... it has taken me a long long time to get back to the routine (hopefully I can stick to it this time).

Yesterday I visited one of the most famous markets in London, Borough Market, which is next to London Bridge. Even though it is known for having become quite touristy over the last few years due to its ever-growing popularity, it still preserve its original charm. The location is beautiful, as you can see in this picture... The old brick stoned walls, the ceiling with its green and golden details, it all creates an unique atmosphere.

Boots Haul: Some Essentials

You all know what happens when a girl enters Boots. You never come out empty handed, it's just impossible. BUUT I managed to restrain myself to only buy essential products and I did quite well! So no make-up products this time but it's definitely not going to stay like that.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast is by far my favourite meal of the day, mainly because you can eat looots of sweet things with the excuse of needing "fuel for the day". I'm totally a sweet tooth so you won't see me eating something salty in the mornings. Like never! But I try not to eat Nutella and Chocolate Cornflakes (at least not every morning...) and have a balanced and kind of healthy breakfast.

City Spotlight: My First Impressions of LONDON

Like some of you might know (if not, read here) I just moved to London. I obviously spent the first days being a complete tourist with my camera prepared to take as many photos as I could, so here is a selection!

All about shoes

Today's post is all about shoes, becuse c'mon, who does not love shoes? I declare myself addicted to them, even though I restrain myself quite well from buying too many (well, at least I try...). 

Recently I have bought these black beauties which I'll take with me to London. My excuse is that shoes are much cheaper here in Spain than in the UK, does that count as a good reason to buy them?

London, here I come!

As many of you know, I finished school this year. As I didn't really know what to study and I wanted to improve my English and French before going to university, I decided to take a Gap Year. And the first stop is LONDON! It was the obvious first choice for me when wanting to spend some time in an English-speaking country and I'm so glad I managed to organize it.

July Favourites

It's that time of the month where everybody talks about their favourites, so I decided to jump on the boat and do my first monthly favourites ever. I can't believe how fast July went by, can someone please stop the time or at least make it slow down??

What to do with 4kg of Raspberries

The other day my brother and I had the great idea to go raspberry picking. We thought we would just pop by, get only a few and then leave again but that definitely didn't happen. We ended up with more than 4kg, super full tummies (while picking you could eat as many as you wanted) and with no idea what to do with so many raspberries.

Some Empty Products

Do you know that feeling when you have had a product for ages and you finally finish it? It's like a mixture between sadness because it's gone and satisfaction because you went through the entire thing and you are now able to buy a new one or try out other products...

City Spotlight: Barcelona

Last week I spent 3 days in Barcelona with a lovely friend of mine and as I lived in Barcelona for 6 years, I played the tourist guide for her. I took her to all the sight-seeing spots, but what we enjoyed most was walking through little streets and discovering new and cute cafés, bars or shops. Barcelona is perfect for that and I fell more and more in love with this city.

The Make Up Timer Test Tag

Lily Pebbles has recently created a new Beauty Tag especially for blogs, which I found such a great idea that I had to try it myself! It consist of timing yourself while doing your make up as usual and I was pretty surprised with my time and the parts that took me the most.

The Bodyshop Obsession

Recently I bought two products from Bodyshop which I wanted to have for aaaages now. The first one is a Shower Gel, the second one a Hand Cleanse Gel, both from the Strawberry range. And OMG, they smell so good. From all the different smells they have (all types of fruit, nuts, vanilla, coconut...) it is definitely my favourite!

Summer #OOTD

As you know from my recent blog post post, I am spending some time in Mallorca. Obviously, it's hot here. Like reaaaally hot. I chose an outfit that included very light textures and four of the mayor trends this summer: white over white, lace skirts, a pop of yellow and mirrored sunglasses.

Next stop: Mallorca

Little life Update:

For the next 3 weeks I am going to be on Mallorca with some friends, which is why I will blog not as much as usually! I'll try to upload a post ever wednesday and sunday, but I can't promise anything... 

We are going to Port Andratx, a beautiful little village, which is half an hour from Palma (the capital) away. I have already been there and it is amazing (especially the ice-cream shop, to die for) and I am very much looking forward to be there again.

What are you up to? Have you been on Mallorca already?

I hope you have a great day!

Graduation Makeup

The 31th of May is my graduation aaaand my 18th birthday and I obviously don't want to have a messy face. That's why I already practiced how I'll prepare myself for the big day and went through aaall the process. I have found some things I should definitely improve (eyeshadows, I am talking to you) but in the end I was very happy with the result.

What do you think? Are there any tips and tricks you want to share with me? How was your graduation day?

First Beauty Haul

Last Friday I did a little bit of shopping because I "needed" (no one actually needs those things... but oh well...) some products for my graduation that are long-lasting and will keep my make up in place all day. So I actually went only for 2 products, but ended with a few more... ups.

Guerlain for 5€, whaaat?

Yesterday I spent the day wandering around Madrid with a friend and we discovered this really cute market where they sold jewellery and clothing items aaaand... Guerlain products for 5 to 15€.  The moment I saw this I freaked out and I am still hyperventilating. I did not buy anything because I just went beauty shopping the day before (a haul is coming up soon!) but I regret it sooo much and I am literally thinking about going back today. The girl selling the Guerlain products told me that the company donated them in order to sell them at a lower price and with the recollected money they are going to help a local orphanage.

Everyone has a secret list of things they really like and want, but they try not to splurge on them.  I am lucky, my birthday is in two weeks so maybe... maaaybe I am actually getting something from my 'do not splurge on this'-list as a birthday gift! *fingers crossed*

Hi, internet

To write my first blog post makes me feel nervous and even scared as I am completely stepping out of my comfort zone. But here I am, trying to think about a way to introduce myself, and I have to say, it's really hard. I think everyone who started a blog and went through the same situation knows what I am talking about! Having no idea what to write, wanting it to be perfect, deleting and rewriting everything several times... But in the end, it's just one post of many to come, so I decided to just jump ahead and get it done.   But enough with the babbling, I may start introducing myself.
