Made Me Happy This Week.

settembre 04, 2017


September is finally here! It almost felt like this scorching Summer would last forever and I'm honestly so excited to see the hot season come to an end - I'm aware that usually is the other way around and most wish for an endless summertime but I always struggle during the warmer months, as I feel sluggish, drowsy and very unproductive most of the time. I have great plans for the rest of the year and I look forward to wearing light knits, ankle boots and my favourite trench coat in the next weeks.

Four Favourites from The Ordinary.

giugno 28, 2017


Although I do love the occasional drugstore makeup gem, I can't say I've ever been truly interested in budget skincare, not when my face is involved at least. Mostly because cheaper brands have the tendency to add lots of artificial fragrances to their products that can aggravate my sensitive skin, and in general I've always believed that you get what you pay for and good ingredients don't come for free. Then The Ordinary happened and took by storm not just the whole beauty community but also my skincare cabinet, and made me completely rethink my attitude toward skincare.

What I love about the brand is their minimalist, no-nonsense approach to products: they got rid of all the unnecessary stuff, such as fancy packaging, superfluous ingredients, fragrance and the like, and  bottled up just the pure actives that are what the skin really needs. By doing so they allow you to target directly your own skin concerns and create your perfect skincare regime without breaking the bank. Brilliant!
I've been trying a few of their products for quite some time and these are my favourites so far.

The everyday radiant base.

giugno 19, 2017


Although I do enjoy constantly changing my base products just to keep things a little interesting, sometimes I find a combination that works wonders for me and I end up sticking to it and wearing it over and over again. This is one of those times and I really need to tell you all about it.

A Lush Spring haul.

maggio 12, 2017


When the weather outside is absolutely dreadful and it feels more like November than mid May, it's totally okay to hide in the bathroom all day, forget the rain outside and enjoy a whiff of spring in the shower. Or at least that's what I've been telling myself to justify the ridiculous amount of time I've been spending soaking in the bath ever since I've got my hands on the Lush Mother's day selection. I feel like I say it every single time but I mean it, this might be the best collection yet. I would even go as far as saying that it's the mother of all collections - get it?

febbraio 09, 2017


Whether you like Valentine's day or the sighting of red hearts and stuffed animals is enough to ruin your mood for the whole week, you must agree it's the perfect opportunity to treat your loved ones and yourself to some beautiful goodies and new releases. As if we needed another excuse, right?
I've put together a quick post full of gift ideas that would be perfect to spoil yourself or a loved one with and of course as a last minute inspiration for the boyfriend.
