What goes around, comes around.



It's crazy how life is sometimes. This post is going to be sort of personal, based on a bad experience in a restaurant. Summing up, one of my closest friends has come back to Mallorca for a couple of weeks. She works in London so she came here to catch some sun and enjoy some holidays before going back to work...

Three BASICS for Autumn-Winter


As you may or may not know, I'm moving to England soon (20 days to be exact) and that means I've been going crazy and organising plenty of things for this - and that includes clothes. 
Let's be honest - England is already pretty chilly by the end of August. Definitely nothing compared to our 35ºC. That means that by the time I move in, I'm going to need plenty of layers! (Even by October we enjoy 20ºC - so yes)
Thankfully for me, I've been getting GREAT DEALS on sales for the past month and I've bought pretty cute things - and also my parents have, because they do really love spoiling me and especially now since their little girl is moving out for half a year.
So I'm going to start showing you three pieces of clothing that I think should be in every girl's wardrobe. But hey, that's my opinion, and you may differ from that!

DO's & DON'Ts when you blog



Congratulations, you own a part of the Internet. Something on the Internet is yours - and that's your blog! Of course you have Twitter, Facebook, Instagram... but nope you have your little website (or big, I don't know!) and it's yours. That's amazing.

I'm not a renowned blogger so probably writing this post may be seen as pretentious, but I've been blogging for almost seven months now and I've learnt a few things on the way that may be useful for you and your blog.

INTERVIEW WITH THE BLOGGER



So it happened.

Scrolling through old posts I found that the Blogmopolitan Quiz I filled was very popular - and super fun to do - so I decided to create my own! Vastly influenced by Two Thirds Hazel's Blogmopolitan series, I've created "INTERVIEW WITH THE BLOGGER" (as in Interview With The Vampire but... yeah, blogger). If I find out people like it, I may create more quizzes because I think they're super fun and they make youf eel like you're actually being interviewed by one of those magazines we all read.

REVIEW: Mask of Magnamity by LUSH


It is known by everyone my obsession with LUSH and all their products. I just love their policy and the fact that all their products are 100% vegan. I'm not vegan, however I love using very natural products on my skin since we all damage it with different chemicals.

This is what the brand says about it:

A multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin - now in a self-preserving formula.

2€ BB Cream from H&M: Are bargains worth it?



ARE BARGAINS WORTH IT?

What a trick question. Bargains sometimes trick us into thinking we need something when we actually don't - and then if it's useful we wonder how we've lived without this item all this time... am I right?

Crissy Chats #17: One month


And suddenly, it hit me.

You may remember my post, back in March. On March 28th I knew I was moving to England for half a year and three days later I posted it on my blog, sharing the good news. It's been an awful lot of months and it hit me in August that I'm moving in a month. (N/A: As I'm editing this, there is EXACTLY one month left. I wrote this post on August 6th, I'm posting it on August 17th and leaving on September 17th)

The Bargain Haul



Excuse my lack of posts - again - recently but I've been slightly busy - again. As you may know, I'm soon moving to England and that requires an awful load of papers to fill and things to prepare. I finally got my one way tickets - for now as I will come back for Christmas - and blah blah blah... the sooner it gets, the more Erasmus preparations related posts will be.

This brings me to the fact that I told myself I would be on a spending ban. Well, that hasn't happened. I do really need to save money for my new laptop but I went out and I ended up spending on things I actually needed and... surprise, surprise: THEY WERE BARGAINS (specially considering the fact that the sales are over)

Now you may be wondering: "But Cristina, did you actually need those items?" YES. And I'll tell you why!

Crissy Chats #16: The British Tag


Hello everybody!

Yesterday I received a notification on Twitter from the lovely Charlotte (thanks for the tag!!) whose blog I discovered the exact time she sent me her link because she had tagged me on a tag! And not just any tag, The British Tag! I had seen this - like Charlotte - on Essie's video but this tag was created by Sammi from The Beauty Crush so I think this is super fun! 

Although I'm not British, I'm a big fan geek of British culture so let's see if I'm that British or not - all of you who read me and hold a British passport can judge, hahaha!

Apologies for the lack of posts as these days have been busy here, but here I am, with something to talk about!! Originally this wasn't going to be the review I wanted to post today but I thought it was worth it. 

I'm presenting you the Rimmel's Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour balm in the shade 600 ON FIRE.

Beauty Haul #1: Lush & Rimmel


Hello lovelies!

I'm back from a super nice day with one of my friends named Judith. She's a beauty and fashion enthusiast like me, unfortunately she doesn't have a blog so I can't link you guys her blog to check but she's very nice and awesome. We both went out for lunch and we also bought some things I really want to show you.

And it includes Lush. AGAIN.
(The people from the Lush shop already know me - what a nice feeling)

I can't believe that it's been six months since I started blogging and this is my first beauty haul (as in buying more than two products in one day) so that's why I'm putting "beauty haul #1" because I consider it my first big haul for my blog!

July Favourites


Hello everybody!

Thanks for commenting on my camera post! That post was merely informative, I will do a full constructive review as I use it. I've been loving it so far though and yes it records in HD! So it's an amazing camera. 
This is my first post using my new camera so I hope you enjoy what I have for you!

I've got a new (and affordable!) camera! (+ example pics!)


Hello everybody!

Firstly, I would like to thank you all for voting me in the Get Noticed Awards as I've won the Quirkiest Blog award! That is so awesome, I'm so happy! Thank you very much! 

I'm sorry I've been so absent these days but I'm here with good news. I've been working hard for the past week as it was my last week in a summer camp. There are a few things I really wanted to buy with the money I got and one of them was this camera. It's not a reflex, but I think it will do a good job.
