Crissy Chats #1 (Beauty, lifestyle and more)

Hello lovelies!

I present you Crissy Chats a weekly post about beauty, lifestyle and more I'll be writing every Sunday so we can catch up and you can get to know me better. I hope you like it!


To me, Sundays are never a relaxing day. I have this stupid habit of leaving all my coursework for Sunday - I lie to myself saying that I work best undrer pressure but I assure you it's a total lie. Fortunately this weekend is kinda relaxing as I'm starting my second semester on Tuesday and I'm not looking forward to it... at all

This week has been slightly eventful. In roughly a week and a half my best friend and I are travelling to Barcelona to see some friends and see Fall Out Boy! She's a big fan, I don't consider myself the biggest fan in the world but I do enjoy their music. She didn't want to go alone so I agreed to go with her so I could also visit some friends who are studying there. Barcelona is so beautiful! I have been there so many times with my family but this is the first time I'm going to go "alone" - and the third time I'm travelling alone without school or parents, wooho! Brownie points for me.

Oh, yes. I'm also on a spending ban since I'm saving money for Barcelona. I want to go to some shops we don't have there (like Primark) so I can bring home some goodies...


... but yes I know yesterday I bought the Match Perfection foundation. Oh well, I kinda needed one. And it was such a lovely day so ditching my gym session to go for a walk and a frozen yogurt treat with my best friend was great!

Also, yesterday I saw the only place in Mallorca where they sell Real Techniques brushes! Eek! They just brought them in! I have already bought a set from another brand though (plus, hey, spending ban!) I just need it to arrive soon (it was a bargain so...) I will be posting a review as soon as it arrives!

This set from dx.com
I bought a domain! Yesterday. Yes, I know, spending ban, bla, bla, bla... but it was 0,96€ at Stratos so I didn't resist. Now www.definitelymycupoftea.com is a reality! For now this domain just redirects - I'm working some issues to make it work on blogger and all, but hey it's an improvement. I did it because my blog has finally reached an important  milestone: 500+ followers! In less than a month? INSANE.

I improved the design a little bit, changing some colours and such. I like it  more. What do you guys think?

However my week had some bad sides. Bye, bye MacBook... for now. As you may know, I'm using different computers now since my MacBook has decided to give up on me until I buy a new battery.

Oh, and also my phone has given up on me. It dies if I use it more than 15 minutes. My phone is kindta shitty but it's definitely better than my older one (I used to have a BlackBerry, like the vast majority of the population in 2010-2011) but I got a Samsung Galaxy Ace in 2012 and well... it sucks. I personally dislike Android with passion. I don't even have many apps there! Thankfully, I have had my iTouch for two years now and I can use all those apps I can't in my phone since it freezes, blocks, dies, etc...

Nevertheless, there are exciting things coming up in this blog and I really can't wait to share it with you. I'm very happy I decided to start writing it as I have discovered so many things and I'm enjoying this hobby again. 

Oops! I think I talked too much! I hope you enjoyed my first Crissy Chats post!

Currently loving:

Music: This playlist from 8tracks is on my iPod and I listen to it very often - specially at gym!
Book: Finished Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell this week and I absolutely loved it.
App: Simpsons Tapped Out! So addicting. If you want to add me, I'm Akucita.

What have you been up to this week? 

I hope you're all having a lovely week!
