Hard Day? Say no more!





My biggest beauty obsession is pretty eyeshadow palettes and even though the universe is big, there is one thing that I'm certain about:
Makeup Revolution makes the prettiest eyeshadow palettes. Ever.

When I picked Hard Day, I wasn't expecting to buy anything like that. To be fair, one of my biggest eyeshadow palette-crush is Flawless by Makeup Revolution but somehow I keep telling myself that I don't need it. That day I had Flawless in my hands and I was very convinced that I would buy it until I stumbled upon Hard Day...

A/W 2015 WISHLIST






I'm waiting for Autumn and its fashion with open arms. It feels like Summer is about to leave us, with a few Summer storms around the corner. I already bought a sweatshirt from MANGO for this Autumn and I'm dying to wear it. 
Having said this, I have to add that I'm obsessed with ASOS. I'm on an spending ban right now because I'm going to Madrid in September and I already spent way too much on a new camera. However, after my trip to Madrid, you can bet that I'm going to get a few of these things...

Crissy Chats | On University



I guess most of you will have finished uni (either the uni year or the whole degree) and some of you may be about to start this adventure. I have finished my fourth year of university in Spain (degrees are usually four years, more depending on which degree you are taking) and I should have been graduating by the end of this year but I'm going to take another year to do so... and that's perfectly fine.

Like all my Crissy Chats post, I want you to take a beverage of your choice and sit down, relax, and let's have a nice conversation on university. Of course, all comments are welcome...

Pamper evening essentials



Pamper evenings have become a weekly ritual for me. I choose a random night of the week to just take time to myself and I follow very simple steps to it. Why do I pamper? Because I have either had a bad day or a really good day. Or just because I'm bored. Either way, I follow a specific ritual everytime and I invite you all to take part of it!

Breakfast smoothie: blueberry & banana



Good morning sweeties!

Now that it's summer and I presumably have more time than when I was studying (haha, I wish!) I have more time to prepare a good breakfast rather than going with my day with just a cuppa and nothing else. Not good!
When I was still trying the teas I got sent, I decided to check on their website the food plan they offered and it was amazing. They suggested, for breakfast, oats and a smoothie. And I was like: huh? I can do that. I like smoothies!

(Also: first time writing a recipe here so I hope you like it!)

I have shared a few pictures of my blueberry & banana smoothie in the mornings and I've been asked for the recipe which is suuuuuper easy!

15 things that make me happy


People say I'm a very cheerful person. I'm usually happy, with a big smile on my face. I think it's true, and that's because there are so many little things that genuinely put me at ease after a rough day. I've read two posts recently of different bloggers who wrote a list on things that made them happy so I thought - why not?! So if you're interested - or you're a bit nosy, that's okay - here goes my list!

Pink



I love pink. I don't know how my obsession with pink started, but I swear I must be low-key Paris Hilton in 2006. Or Sharpay Evans from High School Musical. Anyway, I love pink and trust me - if there is anything that I like that has its version in pink, I will most likely buy it. So if you'd like to see a small part of all my favourite pink things, this is your post.

3 Reasons to buy the GoPro Hero HD




Yes, okay, I get it. Another camera? Yes, another camera. But the GoPro? Cristina you don't even do extreme sports or something exciting worth the money for you to get a GoPro. You know nothing Jon Snow I know. Just kidding, I know you guys wouldn't say such thing. But yes, A GoPro. The reason why I bought it is rather funny but so far I've been discovering and I don't know how I did not buy this before my ERASMUS experience.

Anyway, I live in Mallorca which is a beautiful island in Spain. I've always wanted a waterproof camera to take cool pictures with my friends, and lately I've been spending a lot of family time after studying and working so I thought I could use one. One of my brothers has one and I asked him to let me use it, but his response was blunt: "No. If you want one, get one", said probably thinking I would not have the money or guts to actually buy it.
Little did he know I went on Amazon and it was on offer and two days later it arrived peacefully at home...

So I got this wonderful GoPro for 121€ including shipping costs, which sounds like a bargain to me. Then I got myself a MicroSD for the GoPro of 16GB (max 32GB, other GoPros 64GB) for like 10€. You may wonder why is it so cheap? I think it normally costs 150€ and I'll explain you the difference with the rest of the range in the first reason why you should buy it.
