Awkward first post... anyone?

This is my second attempt to keep a blog — the first one this year, though. I know third is a charm but I believe this one will stay with me for a while (crossing fingers!)

My problem with blogs is that I get bored easily. I guess I'm someone who becomes interested in so many things in little time that I always take different directions on the blogs or journals I'm writing... and I really need to fix that. I had (well, I still have it) a blog which was bilingual, I had visitors and all so it's not like I was writing for my mum and two more friends but I noticed I was always so bored of translating things into English.

... so yes, you can pretty much guess I said "screw translating posts!" and I'm happy with this decision because this will only make me improve my writing skills whether I like it or not.

In all honesty, I never thought I'd end up running a blog about beauty and lifestyle but I've found myself really interested in those topics and I thought I'd give it a go. I believe I'm not the typical beauty blogger (I'd never consider myself a beauty blogger — I mean, I haven't written a beauty related post yet! — and of course I'd never consider myself a beauty guru) so maybe I can provide you a different pov on beauty in this blog, maybe a funny side too.

About the name: "Definitely my cup of tea"... well, easy. I'm a big fan of tea, I prefer it over coffee that's for sure. Beauty is my cup of tea, it's something I'm genuinely interested in since it can be a form of art (I mean, that's why a make up artist is called like that, right? Artist) and also I'd like this blog to be something you can read while you're drinking a cup of tea (or, well, it's alright if you're a coffee person because you're accepted in here too), I'd like this blog to be something entertaining to read... so that's why!

And that's a wrap! It wasn't as awkward as I expected it to be (I really suck at writing "first posts" and I've done so many that it's kind of ironic) Thank you for coming and taking the time to read this awkward first entry, I promise I will get better and better, just give me some time!

Much love,

Cristina xx


  1. I thought that was a great first post; I started mine literally three days ago and I'm already addicted. I love how your blog is laid out too. And judging from your written English, you don't need any more practice! x

    I personally own Naked 2 and Naked 3, not really fan of matte eyeshadows, but I know how nice these shades are. :)

  6. Aw thank you, you're very sweet! I should give those ones a go! I really can't wait to get my hand on one of those! I wasn't a big fan of matte eyeshadows before but I must confess I'm in love with the matte colours the Naked Basics has!
