My Miami Sephora Haul

February 24, 2016

Hi loves! So I went to Miami for a couple of days this month, super happy to see my family and friends, and I was more then ready to get some shopping done! I had a long list for Sephora, that I had to edit otherwise my husband would’ve not been a happy camper haha! There where a few things I had to get, like the Laura Mercier Secret brightening powder, which I have been using and its really nice, I’m really loving it! I also got the First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 eye cream, the verdict is still out for that one since it has only been a couple of days using it but it does feels nice and not heavy to wear under makeup at all. I purchased the latest HD concealer from Makeup Forever and I love it! Is not as hydrating as the Nars concealer, that is my holy grail {see blog post here about it}, but it does cover the under eye dark circles amazingly! I got a super cute nail polish color from the Sephora line named Trilling, it’s a must have, perfect white-grayish color, give it a try if you can.

I got a 100 points reward right away because, I didn’t want to save them until next time, and I picked the pink gel coat for the nails that I had always wanted to try, so perfect timing. I got my Sephora Birthday present and this year is a set from Fresh {Face cleanser and Rose mask, that I already tried and it left my skin super soft and nice}  so quite happy about that too! At Heathrow airport before heading to Miami, I got a few duty free items, that honestly next time I will get more stuff! They had everything there! There was a Jo Malone store where I purchased my fave scent from them, English Pear and Freesia and also I got the Lip maximizer from Dior… What should I get next? My list is starting for my next trip to Sephora! P.S. Stay tune for my pharmacy makeup haul next 😉

Until next time!

Love,

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her

February 12, 2016

Sweatshirt/ Perfumelotion/wallet

Ring/Card Holder

I’m back! After a couple of interesting months, where a new job, graduation paper and family took my life, I’m now coming back to something I love and thats blogging! It’s all in the organisation and thats my main goal for 2016!!! But anyways, lets talk about Valentine’s day! I’ve been married for a while but you can never let the details go away, I put together a few options for presents that I think are girl “approved”.  A good wallet is always cool, or a cozy sweatshirt like this one from Wildfox. I really love jewellery and I have my eyes on this ring from Monica vinader, I don’t think she’s has much retail presence in the USA yet, but here in England she’s is one of the most popular.

I love Jo Malone, they are such a lovely perfumery and you can mix the scents too, this is one of my fave. I think we all love flowers, so its always a good cute idea especially as an add on present {or a just because detail!}. I would say go with something different than roses, no? like Peonies! And since I’m quite the practical person, I love gift cards, so why not get a cool card holder and put some gift cards on it and offer a day of shopping for her? I would love that! Even though my hubby is not big fan of shopping hahaha. Big kisses for all and until next time.

Love,

Paola

Estoy de regreso!!! he pasado unos meses un tanto complicados, entre trabajo nuevo, mi paper de graduación y asuntos familiares, pero estoy de regreso porque escribir en el blog es algo que me apasiona, y todo esta en la organización! Mi meta para 2016! Pero bueno, el día de san valentin ya esta aquí, y les tengo algunas ideas para las chicas. Una buena cartera es siempre buena idea, o un top cute como este de la marca Wildfox, a mi me gusta mucho la joyería y le he puesto el ojo a este anillo de Monica Vinader, ella no tiene mucha presencia en USA pero aquí en Inglaterra es super popular.

Me encantan los perfumes de Jo Malone, y lo mas genial es que puedes mezclar los aromas, y este es mi favorito. Yo creo que a todas nos gustan las flores, y es un detalle lindo que puede ser un extra, pero yo digo que regala algo diferente a rosas, como estas Peonies! son lindas! Y la verdad yo soy bastante practica, por eso me parece que dar un tarjetero con unas tarjetas de regalo es super cool, y ofrecerle un día de shopping con ella! a mi me encantaría ese regalo, aunque a mi esposo no le gusta mucho el shopping pero ni modo hahaha. Besos y hasta la próxima!

love,

Paola
