December/January favorites

Hello lovely people… the following post as you will probably see in a couple of lines was set to come out last sunday… unfortunately in this exact order, my macbook died and second I got sick with the flue.. Anyways I hope you enjoy this dalyed-post!




Good Sunday everyone!

Today is a very exiting post which took me a while to piece together cause I really wanted to me sure of what I was going to show you! Yes, you probably guess it from the title is time for my January favorites, to make things a little more fun I decided to split my faves in different categories… hope you enjoy this post and find it helpful!

Let’s start with…..



CliniqueMoisture surge intense

Clinique – all about eyes serum

Clinique  – all about eyes – cream

Clinique – turnaround daytime

Avène –Eau thermale

Coconut oil

Kiko – Perfecting serum

Sephora – Pomegrade eye mask

MaybellineBaby balm & blush ( 01 innocent peach )

Well is obvious that these couple of months I have been totally on #teamclinique ahuahuah… I usually don’t go with so many product but I really saw a major difference on my skin since I started using them… totally in love with it!

Also once every 10 days I loved using the sephora eye mask, to be honest I love the pomegrade and lotus one from this line… but I am not particularly fond of the other range…But these two for my dry undereye/ panda eyes day are AMAZING.



Real Techniques – Miracle Complexion Sponge

Real Techniques – Sculpting Brush

Rimmel – Kate “nudelipstick collection” N°45

Mac – lipstick jubilee

Revlon  – colorburst Matt balm “Sultry”

Chanel – Rouge Allure Velvet La Merveilleuse N°347

Estèe Lauder – Pure color Liquid envy – “Strange Bloom”


Kiko – DOUBLE GLAM EYELINER  N° 115 Black Teal

HRLash Queen Sexy Blacks Waterproof

Rimmel – Lasting Finish N° 203 true beige

Lancome – Miracle Cushion Foundation N° 03

Oh well here too, is obvious that in January I have experienced a change of heart… and went totally on #teamnu..ok nope that sounds a little disturbing… lets swith to #teamneutrals?

As I alredy said in a prevous post, nude lip colors are a little tricky for me, I am always afraid of ending up looking like a dead person… But as I went darker on my hair color I had to adjust also my makeup, for example go for slightly more dark and smokey looks on the eyes which as we all know by now calls for nude/neutral color lips…Anyway, these three lippies are my new “holy grail” of nude colors!!


Of course the competion is always on… in fact on a more colorful side we have two fair winners as well…one is from my all time favorite chanel allure collection and the other is a gorgeous liquid lipstick from estee lauder ..still very confortoble to wear!




Coconut oil

Kloranedry shampoo

Bumble bumbleThickening Hairspray

Tangle teezer


Yep I back to basics… left the “bronde” behind for a darker brown … And I like it, a lot… It as been a fun ride first with the ombre hair and then with a balayage bronde.. but I felt the need to go for a more natural ” me ” hair color version… until the next “crazyhair need” strucks up again… SO I decided to go all DIY as it was a dark color, easy peasy case… and chose this L’oreal Prodigy… this thing is GREAT… no awfull chemical smell what so ever … super shiny and pigmented!




Pure Green tea Clipper

Oolong mix fuit tea


Gryffindor Mug ??… YES, PLEASE..


Well, he is always on my iphone playlist as I am  very attached to his music since I was little listening to my father records… of course the tragic passing last month has compelled me even more to listen to the great David Bowie…Heroes, Life on Mars, Starman, not only great records… but legends!



My favourite to go look this month has been all about “Sweater dresses” often paired with a comfy cardigan or like in this case my favourite faux leather Zara cardigan-jacket…


Other obsession is the shawl-scarf…no joke.. I have been living is this thing since December… It’s the softer scarf I have ever had… and it’s a shawl too…which means basically a warm blanket 24/7!

Black Booties, my craft made faux leatherish purse brought this summer from Cambridge and this pair of Sunglasses are the things I favoured more this month… almost every day ( a side from my way bigger work bag ..)

Sweater dress  Zara

Cardigan /Jacket Zara

Scarf –  Pimkie

Anckle Boots Bata





Wild Bamboo IncenseZara Home 

I included a random favorite this time, which is this incense from “Zara home” that I received for Chrsitmas… I love this scent it’s fresh, flowery but not too strong… I had the soap too, and saw that they have the home sent as well… which, next time is gonna be on my shopping bag for sure…

Well, lovely people this was a very long post… hope I did not bored you too much..

Have you tried some of this product? which ones are your favourite?

Hope you all have a lovely day!



Let’s stay in touch join me on
