HAPPY HALLOWEEN!



BOOOOH! Hello beauties, how are you all? Just wanted to make a little post to wish you guys a happy halloween! I feel kind of sad because here in Portugal we don't really celebrate Halloween that much. But actually today at school they were having a "best pumpkin carving contest" and there was some pretty cool pumpkins. But when I say celebrate I mean, go trick or treat, people dressing up or houses with halloween decor. People around here don't usually do that (cof cof, boring...). But yey, I'm still in the "halloween spirit" so I'm going to stay in with my pjs and watch some scary movies uhhhhhh. But if you're celebrating Halloween I would love to know what are you going to do and what costume are you going to wear, tell me in the comments below and I'll read them and answer you! And if you're like me and you're going spent the holiday at home, *high five sista*.


What are your favorite movies (scary, disney movies..) to watch on halloween? Suggestions please!


Thank you, xoxo

My perfect imperfections TAG



Hello beauties, how are you? Recently I've been finding myself watching/reading so many TAGs on youtube/blogger, I find TAGs extremely fun to watch/read and we also get to know more about the person, and that's why I really enjoy them. So today I'm going to do this TAG that has been around for quite a while and is the "My perfect imperfections TAG!". I'm going to let you know 3 things I don't like about myself and also 3 things I like about myself. I hope you enjoy it!


  3 THINGS I LIKE ABOUT MYSELF:

1. The number one thing I really, really like about myself are my eyes.  The color of my eyes is hazel, but sometimes (it depends on the weather) they're kind of green/brown. 



(Excuse the no-makeup eyes haha)



2. The second thing I like about myself is my hair color! I am blonde but, it's not the regular blonde, it's more dark and oh my god, I'm not even joking, throughout my whole life a LOT of people have asked me if I die my hair, and the answer is no. I have never died my hair.



3. Now for the last thing I like about my self, dun dun dun... my eyelashes. I know, how weird haha! But it's true! I love my eyelashes, I've never used fake eyelashes because I don't really need it. They're naturaly super long and all I do is apply a few coats of mascara and I'm good to go.



3 THINGS I DON'T LIKE ABOUT MYSELF:


1. I don't like my arms, I know right, another weird thing to dislike I mean who even notices that haha but yes, I really dislike my arms. They're kind of chubby but this is a family thing, even my mom's arms are.

2. Second of all, I don't like my nose. I don't even know how to explain it, I just don't like it I think it doesn't look "cute" or "proporcional" on my face haha.

3. Now the last one! I don't like my feet, at all! I guess I just don't like feet in general but seriously, I really dislike my feet!




And that's it! I hope you enjoyed me letting you guys know the things that I like and dislike about myself, we all have our flaws, we all dislike some things about ourselves and it's ok. You just have to learn how to live with them, move one and start loving your skin because at the end of the day, this is your body and you're never having another one. Might aswell live life enjoying and loving what you have.
And also I would like to say a huge thank you on +200 followers on bloglovin and +20 here and also on +3000 views! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Love you all. Don't forget to follow me if you haven't, it would mean the world.


Comment below telling me 3 things you love about yourself and 1 you deslike, only 1 because we need to focus on what we love and leave behing what we dislike, remember that guys!

My hair care routine!



Hello beauties, how are you all doing on this lovely Saturday? Well I hope! Today I decided to talk about my hair, how I take care of it, what products I use, etc. I hope you enjoy!



I don't know the prices of any of this products because I bought them a while ago and I can't really remember, but they weren't expensive because they're all drugstore products, I'm all about buying drugstore products because they're not only cheap, but some of them are really good quality.


My heat protector: Schwarzkopf GLISS heat protector
My shampoo and conditioner: TRESemmé "Liso Keratina"
My hair masc: Schwarzkopf GLISS hair repair
My cream for split ends: Also from Schwarzkopf GLISS hair repair
My hairspray: Nivea Diamond Gloss in 4 extra strong





So this are the shampoo and conditioner that I have been loving using. It keeps my hair soft and smooth and it also smells really good. TRESemmé is a brand that a lot of hairstylists use in their salons and you can buy it at your local drugstore which is really really cool. (I don't know where you live so this might not be available at your local drugstore.)





This is by far, my  favorite of my whole hair care routine. I apply this in the shower, wait about 3 minutes and then remove it. My hair looks and feels so healthy after using this masc. It's just amazing.





I don't usually use a lot of hairspray, only when I curl my hair (which is rare) or tie it in a messy bun, but I really like this one because it really holds the curls and it smells really good. 




This is my heat protector. I've been using this one for ages and I really, really like it. 




This is also one of my favorites. This is a cream for split ends and I usually apply it when I get out of the shower and it makes my hair look more healthier and soft.



That's about it for my hair care routine. I hope you enjoyed it, I would like to know if any of you guys have any tips for growing hair long, because I really want to let my hair grow but I don't want it to look unhealthy and I want it to grow faster. Any tips? Thank you so much for reading, xoxo.

My question for you: What are your favorite products to use on your hair care routine?

Current favorites - "Beauty, fashion, room decor, etc."


Hello beauties how are you? So, last month I posted a current favorites and since I bought some new stuff this month and I've been really enjoying them, why not do it again? I was thinking about doing an "October favorites" but there's stuff that I have for a few months and it's not even the end of the October yet so I figured it out I should do a "Current favorites" instead. Alright, shall we start?


Body splash "H&M": It smells like vanilla and it's in a very sweet scent and I absolutly love it. I can't remember the price because I bought it a while ago but it was cheap.
Rimmel Match Perfection foundation "Drugstore Product": 4,99 €
Essence lipstick in 05 "Dare to be Nude": 2,89 €
Chimmer cubes palette 21 from "The Body Shop": It was a gift so I don't know the price.
Revlon Color Boost crayon in 03 "Orange punch": Around 14 to 15 €.
Acne gel from "Andrea Valomo": It was a gift.




In the "Beauty department" I've been really enjoying all this products. I think I talked about most of them except for the eyeshadows. And that is why I took a picture of what the eyeshadows look like on your eyelids. They are very very pigmented and shimmery, a little bit goes a long way. My favorites are the first (Velvet pink) and the second one (soft pink).





      (Sorry for the bad quality, the weather was very gloomy and I had to take all the pictures by myself, I was by the window so my neighboors probably think I'm a complete weirdo haha)


Now moving on to fashion. I've been loving wearing scarves this month, I don't really know why but it's probably because the weather is perfect to wear these, it's so comfortable and it can really put an outfit together. I have more scarves that I use but here's one of my favorites.
1st scarve "Primark": 4€
2nd scarve "Primark": 1€





 
In case you didn't know, I am a candle addict and I just love lighting up some candles. I think it just makes the room 10 times cozier and not to mention how amazingly good it smells.

Purple candles "Primark": ?
Strawberry candle "Local Drugstore": ?





And now for my favorite song of the moment is actually a cover from "Clarity by Zedd" and the name of the guy who did the cover is Sam Tsui. To me it's actually better than the original, it's so calm and the lyrics are beautiful. You should listen to it!

And that's it for my current favorites! I hope you enjoyed, and if you did, let me know in the comments, thank you so much and don't forget to follow me because it would mean the world, xoxo.

My question for you: What are you doing for Halloween? I would love to know!

Amazing gel for acne - "Andrea Valomo"



Hello beauties how are you? Well I hope! Today I have another beauty related post, I think I'm getting better at posting about beauty and makeup because usually I post more about fashion, inspirational things and tags but lately I've been really enjoying posting all this beauty related stuff. And what about you? Have you been enjoying my posts? I would love to know! Well I'm getting a little bit off topic... I discovered this product recently because my mom works at a salon and her coworker gave me this to try it out and let me tell you, this product is amazing.




This is what the packaging looks like. This is an Italian brand, to be honest I've never heard of it but I'm really happy I found it because this is really amazing. I've only been using this for the past days and I can honestly see a change in my skin. Like I said many, many times before, I have oily combination skin and I also have some spots and zits on my face now and then, and this gel really cleans my face and after I use it my skin feels so fresh and clean. Here's their website if you are interested in knowing more about this product or their brand: CLICK HERE!



In the packaging it says that this gel contains an equalizer complex with bearberry extract, zinc and salicylic acid, providing an anti-seborrheic and purifying action and deeply releasing the skin from microbial impurities.
How I use this product: I apply this every morning before I apply my foundation and also at night before I go to sleep. At night I also like to put a thicker layer just so my skin can really absorb the gel. And this also smells amazing!

I hope you enjoyed this post, if you're looking for a good product because you also have some acne or oily skin this is a great option. Leave a comment down below if you have ever heard about this or if you have ever tried it and what are your thoughts on it I would love to know. Thank you so much and stay beautiful.


My question for you: What is your favorite product to clean your skin?

Rimmel match perfection foundation - first impression/review



Hello beauties how are you? Well I hope! So today I decided to try the Match perfection foundation from Rimmel and decided to do a first impression/review. This was a requested post, and I'm going to give you my honest opinion. Before I start I would like to say that every skin is different and this product may or may not work for me but it can work for you because like I said, everyone's skin is different. Alrighty, let's get started!





The packaging: I really like the packaging, it's glass and it has a pump so it's way more easy, you can control the amount of product that you want and it's not messy.

What says in the packaging: In the packaging it says "Light perfecting radiance foundation" "SPF 18" "Traceless coverage foundation with advanced Smart-Tone technology for perfectly flawless skin under any light. Enhanced with Sapphire Radiance for an illuminating glow. Lasts all day"

Price: I purchased this foundation for 4,99 € which is ridiculously cheap, but I think it was on sale, I'm not sure. 

Colors: I bought in 200 soft beije, I believe there was 2 more colors, a lighter one and a darker one. I should have bought the lighter one because I bought the medium and I think it looks too dark on my skin, but it works. 

Coverage: 
I think it's medium coverage because I have some spots on my skin, I actually have a zit on my face and I can still see it, but it's ok. I didn't use any primer, or any setting powder to really see how the foundation works for it self and I think it did a good job, specially with the discoloration on my skin and the redness around my nose, it does look quite flawless but it can look cakey if overapplied, a little bit goes a long way.

My first impression: When I applied it for the first time my first thought was "wow too dark for me" but once you blend it in it looks quite good. The foundation smells a little bit like sunscreen, but I think it smells quite nice and it's very easy to blend. From 1-10 I give it an 8, I have oily combination skin and without any setting powder my face still looks good, but next time I would definitely use a powder. And if you want more coverage I would suggest you to use some concealer. But over all I think this is a good drugstore foundation.


And that's about it, I hope I helped you with this first impression/review, I gave you my honest opinion and if you would like to see more of these comment down bellow and suggest what you would like to se me reviewing next. Thank yo so much and don't forget to follow, it would mean the world! xoxo

My question for you: What's your favorite drugstore foundation?

Beauty haul - "Drugstore products"



Hello beauties? How are you doing on this lovely saturday? Yesterday I went shopping with my mum and I bought some makeup at my local drugstore and why not share it with you? I haven't tried any of this products yet so I don't know if it's good or not, so if you have ever tried any product let me know in the comments how you like them. 





The first product is this foundation from Rimmel, I actually bought it because it was so cheap and I know that a lot of people use it and I decided to give it a try. I think this isn't the original price because I bought it for 4,99 € which is ridiculously cheap. From all the products I bought this is the one I'm most excited about. Would you like a first impression/review?





Next are this two lipsticks from essence, I just recently heard of this drugstore makeup "essence" and a lot of people seem to enjoy it so I decided to buy a few products to see how I like it. 
The first lipstick is in "07 Natural Beauty" and it's a very subtle pink, it looks very natural on the lips.
The second one is in "05 Dare to be Nude" it's a nude/beije color, it looks very brown but on the lips it looks very natural.
Both lipsticks were 2,89 € which is very unexpensive aswell.





Next is this lipgloss, it's a very shiny lipgloss, in "022 Nude Kiss" and it was 2,29 €. I really like the color and also the applicator.





This is the only product that I was kinda hesitant to buy because I haven't heard anyone talk about it and I don't know if it's good or not but I decided to give it a try and it was also super cheap, 3,49 €. 





And finally, I also bought this lip balm and it was 1,19 €, it has a small amount of product but it's understandable because it was very cheap. And it's in mango icecream (it smells/tastes amazing, if I could I would literally eat it haha).



And this is the end of the haul, I hope you enjoyed this post. I love buying drugstore makeup not only because its cheap but also because there's really good products as well. Please let me know in the comments if you would like to see a first impression/review on any product. Don't forget to follow me, it would mean the world! Thank you so much, xoxo.

Lily Collins style



Hello beauties how are you doing? Today I wanted to do something different, I'm going to talk about Lily Collins style not only because I absolutly love it but also because she's one of my "fashion" inspirations. I think her style is amazing, she's one of those persons who can totaly pull of a casual look or classy and even edgy. Everytime she goes on the red carpet I always find my self falling in love with her outfits. She has a great eye for fashion and even the simplest pieces she can wear them and make them look fabulous and that's what I admire the most about her.





Here's 3 different outfits choices that I picked up to show you the versatility of her outfits. In the first picture she's wearing an edgy outfit with bold makeup which I think it looks awesome. In the second picture she's more classy/formal for the vanity fair 2012 (this year she went with a long blue dress also very formal and classy). And finally in the last picture she's very casual, with two simple clothing pieces (pencil skirt and kind of a baggy T) and it still looks amazing, the two pieces go so well together and I love how she paired it with some formal shoes in a dark blue color.





Here is her street style, I think she's very casual and I love it because I'm also very casual and I like to always be comfortable while looking presentable. I am also a jean person, I think we can wear jeans with basically everything, it's so versatile and it's never out.
She also doesn't wear that much color, it's more browns, blacks and nude colors just like me.



Here's some of her makeup looks aswell. This are two different makeup looks, in the first picture the makeup is more soft and natural, we can't barely tell if she's wearing any makeup or not and that's how it should be! On the second look it's more of a bold and dark makeup which she totally rocks! The bold dark lips look great on her, once again, rocking two completly different looks.



I hope you liked this post, what about you? Do you like Lily Collins style? Let me know in the comments! Don't forget to follow me, it would mean the absolute world. Thank you so much.

Xoxo, Daniela

OOTD #2 "Casual and comfy for school"



Hello beauties how are you all doing? Good I hope! So this morning I was very indecisive on what to wear, actually I was freaking out. You know that feeling of waking up so early in the morning and all you want to do is go to school/work in your pj's? Well I do. So I came up with this outfit which is really comfortable and casual but you will still look cute for that special boy. And why not share with you?




And this is the outfit that I came up with! I was very comfortable during school and I had classes all day. I think the colors go really well together and it screams fall! The weather was not hot but also not cold so that is why this outfit was perfect for today.


Denim shirt(half sleeve): Tally Weijl 
Scarf: Primark (4 €)
Black legging: Decathlon
Sunnies: Primark
Boots: Primark (20 €)


Here is a closer look to the denim shirt, sunnies and my boots!




I hope you enjoyed. Let me know if you like this kind of posts or if you want me to talk/post about something else let me know in the comments and I will reply to you!
I just want to quickly thank all of you who read my posts and keep commenting, it seriously means the world to me and I love reading all your sweet things and replying to every single one of you. Thank you so much again, xoxo
