1 year of Beautyfabb!

Hello beauties, how have you been?
Oh, where to start? First of all I am so shocked that it's been 1 year and a little bit more since I posted my first ever post. I was so super nervous about it. I called all my friends to ask if I should really do it and all I wanted was to make sure everything was exactly how I wanted. I also remember always checking on my post to see if everyone had commented, and after almost a day I got my first ever comment and I never felt more happy haha. Seeing the views coming and seeing everyone enjoying what I post is what made me, and still makes me so happy. I just want to thank everyone for still coming to visit my blog even though I haven't posted anything in ages, and everyone that is here since the beginning always supporting me and saying the most wonderful things.
I'm going to try and post more regularly since now I don't have school in the afternoons, I feel like I have plenty of time and more motivated.
Sorry if this is a really short and chatty post but I really just wanted to update you and thank you for such a fun year here on my blog, it really grew in such a small amount of time. Thank you, thank you :)

Summer vacation: Portugal, Tavira 2013

 Hello beauties, how are you? Well I hope. So, last week I went on a little trip with my family and we went to Tavira, Portugal which is 4 hours away from where I live (driving) and I decided to take lots of pictures to show you. 
This place is amazing if you want to really leave the city and relax for a few days. I stayed there for 5 days, relaxing, eating icecream, going to the beach, going for long walks on the shore, reading a book, wearing comfortable and light clothes, and just enjoying myself. 
I hope you liked all the pictures that I took while I was there!

June favourites 2014!

Hello beauties! So I just realized that today is the first day of the month of July and that is insane... time is seriously flying by so fast, I feel like I can't even blink my eyes otherwise it's already September. We're in the beginning of a new month so it's about time to do a June favourites. I don't have that much stuff to show you mainly because I haven't been buying anything and I didn't really did anything special this month but I hope that somehow you enjoy reading this :)

 My absolute favourite from the month of June has to be the book "The fault in our stars". I know this is not the original cover, and that is because it's not in english. This is the portuguese version of it (which I really enjoyed by the way). I really wanted the english version, but my mum wanted to read it as well and she doesn't understand English (just a little bit), so that is why. I've also seen the movie and it's of course my favourite of the month as well, it is simply amazing and I cried a lot at the cinema and had to use five tissues ahah.

The next favourite now related to beauty is this blender sponge, foundation sponge or whatever you call it that my mum bought me. I've heard a lot of good things about it and I've been really enjoying using this. Mainly because even if I exaggerate a little bit on the foundation, this blends everything out and absorbs the excess of product which I think it's really nice to prevent my face to look cakey.

1-TRESemmé Diamente heat protectant
2- TRESemmé treatment for split ends
3- Garnier makeup remover

This next products are also beauty related. 
The first one is the TRESemmé's heat protectant which I use every time I curl or straight my hair and it really helps protecting my hair from the heat preventing it from damage.
The second product is a treatment/cream for split ends. My hair tends to get split ends very easily and it's also really dry, so this helps reducing the dryness and my hair also looks and feels more healthy and soft. I also just apply a tiny bit on the ends.
Now the last one is my makeup remover from Garnier. What I like the most about it is that it is super fresh and minty and after you use it your face feels really, really soft. It also removes all the makeup and I really like it!

That's it for my favourites of the month of June, I hope you enjoyed reading this even tho it was a little bit on the short side. It would mean the world if you could share this, follow me or leave a comment down below telling me your favourites or simply a thought! Thank you. x

My birthday celebration!

Hello beauties! Long time, no see. First of all I'd like to apologize for my lack of posts, I was so busy studying for finals that I ended up not posting anything but I'm now finally on summer break *sings hallelujah* so I'll be posting more regularly. As you may, or may not know, I celebrated my birthday on Thursday woot woot. I didn't really know what to do so I decided to just chill with my friends and do something casual and simple. Since it was a school day I couldn't really do anything in the morning besides going to class, so that's how I spent my morning. Then I went to my grandma's to have lunch and after that I went downtown to just walk around with some friends, eat some ice cream, see the view, talk chill and at the end of the day we went to the movies to see "Maleficent" (which was awesome).
I took some pictures throughout the day as you can see down below.

Mine's the bottom right. Oh god, doesn't it look delicious? I want some right now.

Sorry for not taking a picture of my outfit I totally forgot, but somehow I took this one. I wore a blazer with a floraly scarf, skinny jeans and some flats.

This is not considered a beach here in Portugal, this is actually in downtown Lisbon by the river. There were some tourists in their bikinis there just chillin, which I thought it was so weird.

While in Lisbon, we saw a lot of cool street art. This is not a statue. It is a real person :)

And then to end my day I just wanted to relax and read a bit. My mom gave me this book as a gift because I really, really wanted it and by the cover you can probaly see that is "The fault in our stars". Everyone's reading or already read this book. I actually wanted it in english, because I prefer it, but my mom bought it in portuguese because she also wants to read it.

That's it for my simple birthday celebration. It was a pretty casual day but I like it that way. Me, my friends and nothing to worry about. I hope you liked it, also leave me some suggestions on what to post next because it would be really helpful. Thank you! x

Changing my room for summer.

Hello beauties, I wasn't going to post anything today but when I woke up I was full of energy (really rare by the way) and I decided to start changing somethings on my room now for summer! It's not that much yet but decided to take some pics and share it with you. As you may know from previous posts I had my room in dark purple and brown for winter with really warm colors and it wasn't really matching the weather now since it's so sunny and beautiful. So I went for florals and, creams, light grey, light pink.. some really light and fresh colors/patterns.

I know it's not that much, but changing simple things such as cushions, picture frames or you bedding sheets can make a huge difference. And just wanted to share it with you because why not? right? *smiles*. Also wanted to ask you guys if you like my new blog template? Been working on it for ages and now it's finally how I wanted it to be. What do you think?

What about you? Are you going to change your room a bit for summer?

Walking around Lisbon

Hello beauties! So, yesterday I went on a little field trip/study trip with school and we basically just walked around Lisbon, Portugal. I must admit that, even tho I live ten minutes away from it I rarely go visit any places there, so this trip was nice to get to know a little bit better where I live and to hang out with my friends. I decided to take lots of pictures to choose some to show you. I didn't went to any museum or anything like that so the pictures you're about to see are all from random places, streets, etc. Hope you like it!

T-shirt: Primark
Flanel shirt: Primark
Black skinny jeans: Primark
White shoes/sneakers: Bershka
Brown bag: Stradivarius

See that castle back there? That's where we started walking to where I am now taking the picture. And then we had to go back to the metropolitan. You can imagine the pain I feel on my legs and feet today.

Alright, I hope you liked this post. I know some of you already know that although I write my blog in English and all that I am actually portuguese and live in Lisbon, Portugal. This is the old side of the city and has lots of history, that's why we did a little study trip there.

What about you? What was your favorite field/study trip? x 

Friday, May 9, 2014


Hello beauties! Okay, before I start, I just need to ask you one thing... what the hell is happening to 2014? How are we already in May? How? Time has been flying by. It feels like yesterday I was showing you guys some stuff I bought for Christmas, etc. and now we're one month away from Summer. So weird, just had to mention that. Now for the actual post, today I'm showing you some products/random stuff that I've been really liking this past month. 

 Perfume ROSE FRAÎCHE: Yves Rocher

This is a perfume that my grandma gave me and I love it so much. It has a floral scent to it and it might seem strong at first but when you spray it on your skin it smells really nice, and fresh and floral.

Facial cleaner mousse: O Boticário

This is a skincare product that I've been using one or two times everyday. It is a mousse that I use it with a face brush to exfoliate/clean/wash my face and it does an amazing job at keeping my face clean and feeling fresh. And it also smells amazing which is always a plus.

Lipgloss in "Nude Kiss": Essence

Omg, this is probably my favorite one. It is gorgeous! It's the perfect nude pink color for me. It's not super sticky and it is so shiny. I love, love, love it so much. It is my go to everyday lipstick and it was also super cheap. Ohh how I love drugstore products... I might have to buy another one though because this one's almost empty.

COLOR BOOST CRAYON in "Orange Punch": Bourjois

This lip crayon is perfection. I absolutely LOVE it. It is so appropriate for spring, the color is fantastic, it doesn't make your lips feel dry after a while and I am just in love.

nativaSPA hand cream: O Boticário

This is a bit random but this is my April favorites and this has to be definitely one of my "skincare" products that I've been using the most. This was a gift from a friend, and it is a handcream. It smells so, freaking good. I love everything fruity and this one's in guarana. So amazing. And it makes my hand feel like a baby's butt since they're really dry.

Both sunglasses: Primark

Now for the last thing/things it is my sunnies that I bought recently! I've never used to wear sunglasses that much, but for some reason I've been really, really liking it! It covers your face from the sun (or from the world when I'm not wearing makeup haha) and they're really cute to add a little some, some to your outfits!

That's it. I hope you liked my post, make sure you leave me your opinion in the comments! It would mean a lot. x
