My room/Room decor ideas

Hello beauties! First of all I would like to say sorry for not posting for almost over a week, I've just been busy with school and I hope you understand that. Today I decided to show you some parts of my room,  how I organize things, and the decoration as well. Shall we start?

Everything is from ikea minus the TV obviously!

First are this two shelves, I think it looks so cute and it makes the room much cozier and it's also a good way too keep all your books organized like I do or movies if you're more into that, and on my first shelf there's the tv, 3 hmm, I don't really know the name of it I just call it boxes, to keep some of my jewelry and little candles that I use in...

Bought this and the candles at IKEA! The candles I usually buy are from ikea and they are amazing! The scent is in raspberries, and it smells delicious, if I could I would eat it, but that's probably not very good for you so... yeah... On to the next thing!

     LOVE letters: I believe it was 1 euro each letter and it's from "Espaço Casa"

Now on to where I keep all my makeup/jewelry, first I would like to apologize for the amazing quality (not really), I know it's not the best but I do not own a professional camera, or lighting but I'm doing my best, and I hope you can enjoy my posts as much as if I had a professional camera.

    Mirror: "Espaço Casa" & Makeup brushes holder "did it myself"

  Perfumes: Girlfriend/Someday/Rose Fraîche
   Makeup bag: "Perfumes & companhia"   

   Candle from primark "Vanilla": 1 euro

Jewellery holder: "Espaço Casa"

Candles: "Espaço Casa"

And that's about it I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I know my room looks super girly girly haha but I like it, what about you? Is your room super girly like me or is it completly different? Let me know in the comments I'd love to read them! Don't forget to follow, it would mean the world, thank you so much xoxo

A weekend in Porto Covo: Portugal

Hello beauties how are you doing today? Sorry for the lack of posts and for not saying anything this weekend but as you may know or may not know, I went on holidays with a couple of friends and family to Porto Covo here in Portugal, and it was absolutely amazing. We stayed there for a weekend to celebrate my friend's birthday and we had a lot of fun. I felt very sad to have to leave, I could have stayed there for a month. We drove all the way there, we left Lisbon (where I live) at 04:30 pm and we arrived at 7 pm.

This is the hotel that I stayed in (Hotel Apartamento Porto Côvo), the hotel was amazing and at this time of the year (end of September) less people go there so it was pretty empty but it felt amazing cause I was able to relax, it was very quiet and the pool was most of the time empty which is awesome because we had almost all the time the pool to ourselves.

I didn't went to the beach, but I got to go there to take some pictures and to go for a walk after having lunch. As you can see through the photos the water was so clear and the view was amazing, couldn't ask for a better place to go for a walk after having lunch. I'm a city girl and it felt amazing being able to breathe fresh air and just relax this weekend.

This is where we would always go for a walk, to grab lunch/dinner, and it's a very touristic place.

Oh my god, this was one of the most beautiful things I've seen, all this pictures were taken by me with no filter, no editing, no nothing. The sky was absolutly stunning, I believe it was 8pm when I took this pictures and I was just amazed by how beautiful the sky was. The nature is amazing isn't it?

hmmmmmmmm now for the food! I ate this on my last day there for lunch and let me tell you something, it was like heaven in my mouth. I went to this restaurant called "O pescador" and I ordered "Bifinhos á pescador" which is basically beef with a special sausse and fries and it was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. The first and the second picture where the appetizers. On the first one it's just bread with butter, patée, etc. The second one is Sapateira (in english edible crab), I don't even know how to explain it all I know is that it was delicious.

And of course we can't go on vacay without eating icecream. Come on. The flavours that I chose where, stracciatella, biscuit and caramel. Then I added some candy and melted chocolate. Yuuuuumz.

So yeah, I hope you enjoyed this post, I wanted to share with you guys my weekend and this way if you're thinking about going somewhere on vacay but you don't know where, here's a suggestion! What about you, where do you went on vacation this summer? have you ever been here? I would love to know, leave a comment down below, follow me and all that stuff, it would mean a lot, thank you so much xoxo

The birthday girl, hope you had as much fun as I did, love you and happy birthday!

Confessions of a beauty blogger

Hello beauties how are you? As you can already tell by the tittle today I'm doing the "Confessions of a beauty blogger TAG" I know I know, I've only started blogging a couple weeks ago and I've already done 2 TAGs but I mean, they're so fun to do and it's a way of you guys getting to know me better and it's a lot of fun to read this kind of TAGs at least they're my favourite. Without further ado, let's get started!

Q: How many hours a week do you spend planning/writing/uploading posts?

I don't really have a schedule and it depends on what I post, if it's something like a "haul" or something that involves a lot of photos it takes me at least half an hour/an hour to take the pictures (yes all the pictures that I have in my blog are taken by me), half an hour to edit them and at least 1 to 2 hours writing and putting everything together on my post. And if it's something that requires me changing outfits and taking the pictures it takes me 2/2:30 hours. But if it's something like this, a TAG, it takes me an hour or a little bit more to do everything (editing photos, write). 

Q: Are you a spender or a saver?

I think I'm a little bit of both, because I save money to spend on something that I really want, but probably I'm more a spender.

Q: When is it easiest for you to write posts?

Like I said in previous posts, I really love doing this and I think it's a time to relax, to just sit down on my couch with a cup of tea/coffee and just write about what I love, share with the world, with you guys what I know, I'm not saying I'm an expert or anything because I'm not, I'm just a teenage girl who's just doing what she loves and sharing with you guys the little that I know. I like to write my posts at the end of the day/afternoon after a long day of school, after a long day out, etc. It just feels nice and relaxing and I absolutely love it :)

Q: What makes writting posts comfortable to you?

I can say I'm pretty comfortable writing posts on my blog. I'm kind of a shy girl but writing doesn't make me uncomfortable at all, and if someone says anything rude or less nice I just ignore because as long as I'm doing what I love and what I want I don't really care what other people think. And reading all the comments that you leave me it's just amazing, I love when you guys comment on my posts, you always say so many sweet things and I appreciate that so much, it leaves a smile on my face every single time.

Q: What's your worst makeup/hair habit?

I know that I shouldn't do this but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who does this and if you say you have never done this you're lying to yourself girl! My worst makeup habit is probably don't remove my makeup before going to bed SOMETIMES, but now I'm getting better. I've been removing my makeup/washing my face and moisturizing it everyday before bed! And if you don't do this... you should, because sleeping with a face full of makeup it's horrible for your skin.

Q: What's one quote you wish the world would live by?

I don't really know because I love a lot of quotes but I really like this one "You can't start the last chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one", I just love this quote because it's so true! This quote basically just says that life is too short, that your life is full of amazing things and surprises, and if you feel sad or down about something you need to just put your head up and move on, I know it's easier said then done but it's true, if something makes you feel sad it's just not worth it, everyone deserves to be happy, you deserve to be happy.

Q: How long you spend getting ready everyday?

It depends, if I take a shower in the morning and I have to go somewhere it takes me about an hour to get ready, but if I don't have anywhere to go it takes me 2 hours, ridiculous right?

Q: Who is a beauty blogger that deserves more subscribers that they have?

Hmmmm this is a hard one because I feel like everyone that puts effort in their blog and loves what she does deserves more subscribers but I'm gonna say Head-Full-Of-Flowers because I really like her blog, it's so cute and adorable, love reading her posts and you should totally check her out!

Q:  What’s one thing you’re excited about in the coming year?

I'm not really excited about anything in the coming year, but probably see how far my blog will go.

Q: What’s been your favourite blogging moment?

I don't have an answer for this question, as you may know I've been only here for two weeks so, I don't know. Sorryyyy.

Q: How long does it take to prep for a post?

It really depends on what I post like I said in the first question, sometimes I thing about something and post it right away or sometimes it takes me a long, long time to prepare my next post.

Q: Are you wearing jeans/skirt right now or are you wearing pajama bottoms?

I'm wearing pajama bottoms actually haha I think I never wrote a post without wearing my pajama bottoms, it's just comfy and I'm at home so who cares right? ;D

Q: What are you most proud of in your life?

I'm proud about every good thing in my life, my family, my real friends, and even myself. But the one that I'm most proud of is my family aka mom and dad, they've just been there for me since day one and never gave up on me, if I need anything they're the first ones helping me or giving me advices and I just love them to death.

And I guess that's about it? I hope you enjoyed this I had a lot of fun answering all this questions. This way you can get to know me a little bit better, if you have any question you want to ask or anything you want to say just leave a comment down below I would LOVE to read them, this weekend I'm not going to be availabe so I'm not posting anything but Monday I'll be back. Thank you so much and if you liked this don't forget to follow me it would mean a lot, xoxo

What's in my school bag/Back to school essentials

Hello beauties, how are you? As you may know I'm still in school, so today I decided to show you guys what I bring with me and what I keep in my school bag/backpack. 

This is my school bag, I bought it at Stradivarius I live in Portugal as you all know so I don't know if you have this store in your country. I bought this bag a while ago so I don't really know the exact price but I do remember that it was around 20/30 euros. Although this is the bag that I use to school more often I also use a backpack from eastpak and I bought it at MCS for 49 euros I believe, I know it's kinda pricey but it was worth the money it's a good bag, the material is great and it's simple just how I like it.

Bag from Stradivarius: 20 to 30 €

Backpack from MCS: 49 €

Ok so now I'm gonna show you what I keep inside my bag. Obviously I also keep my books, my notebook but I didn't think it was necessary or even interesting to see, that is why I'm not mentioning or showing that.

Case from STAPLES: 10 €
The first thing is this case, I bought it not only because it matches my bag as you can probably see haha but also because it's good material and it's simple. The price of it was 10 euros.

Next is my agenda that I bought at a local store here where I live and I absolutly love it. I love bringing my agenda to school I think it's so important and if I need to know when do I need to do something important like a test or some type of work this comes in handy. And this was around 5 €.

 This next "thing" it's pretty self-explanatory, this is where I keep all my... "feminine" products (you know what I'm talking about). This is SO important because if you're like me I never know when it's about to come and I don't wanna be surprised and having to ask for help, gotta be prepared girl. And I bought it at H&M.

Next is my wallet! I bought it at Primark a year ago, still using and still looking new. Love it. I'm really sorry but I can't remember the price but as you know I bought it at Primark so I guess it wasn't pricey.

Now for the best part, my makeup bag uhuhhh! This makeup bag I bought it at Primark aswell and to me it's the perfect makeup bag, it's so cute and the size of it is perfect, love it.

Items in my makeup bag:

 Perfume "Girlfriend" by Justin Bieber: around 30 €

Powder from AVON "Color Trend": around 7 € 

Mascara also from AVON "Extend Extreme mascara": ?

A sample of my moisturizer from PHYTOMER: ?

My lip balm from H&M: 1 €

Mirror from Claire's: ?

I also keep in my bag sunnies, they're from Primark and I believe it was 3 €.

And that's about it, I hope you enjoyed this, of course I got many other things in my bag but I thought they weren't very interesting to show you guys. My question for you is what do you guys use for school, backpacks? Or purses/bags? I'm always switching between this two, leave a comment down below telling me what you use I would love to read it and answer you! Also follow me if you wanna see more of these and other beauty/fashion posts it would mean a lot, thank you so much xoxo

TAG: Would you rather "Beauty edition"

Hello beauties how are you? Today I wanted to do something different and fun so I decided to do this "Would you rather TAG - beauty edition" for you, I hope you enjoy!

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

I think I'd rather lose all my palettes and eyeshadows, I just love eyeliner and lipsticks and I use it almost everyday!

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

Wow this one is easy for me, never be able to cut it again, I'm really scared of cutting my hair really short because I tried it once when I was 11 or something and I totally hated it so I can not imagine myself chopping off all my hair.

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

Can't go wrong with coral, I just love that color.

4. If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

Uhhh hard one... I feel like I have a lot of clothes and it's so much harder for me to buy makeup because it's so expensive so I guess if I had §1000 I'd rather buy makeup.

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

Eyeliner as lipstick, there are so many different eyeliner colors, it wouldn't be that bad... I think so.

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

Sephora because there's so many different brands and such a variety of products, this one was easy.

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?

One eyeshadow color, to be honest I barely use any eyeshadow on a daily basis, and I love lipsticks so I could never use only one lipstick color for the rest of my life!

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

I would rather wear summer clothes in winter. The summer here is SO hot I would pass out if I wore winter clothes, god can't even think about it.

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

Dark nails, I always find myself painting my nails in a dark color, don't know why I just love it.

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

My favorite lip product, because I'm not too picky when it comes to lip products so I would find a new "favorite" one really quick haha

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

Ponytail, I use it all the time and it's a look that I think it flatters me.

12. Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?

Never be able to paint my nails again, this one was easy because I don't paint my nails all the time anyway, it's not that I don't like because I love having my nails done, but sometimes I get lazy haha

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in 

This one is the hardest! But probably sharpie them, come on eyebrows are eyebrows they frame your face!

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

I love nailpolish but I couldn't live without makeup, I didn't have to think twice before answering this one!

I had so much fun doing this tag, I tag you, you aaaand YOU. I hope you enjoyed reading this, comment, share, follow me, it would mean the world. Since I don't like to post something without any picture I leave you guys here with a very white, weird and strange "selfie" I promise you that my skin is not that white haha, love you xoxo
