just an UPDATE

Hi guys, the last 2 days it has been like hell.

Yesterday morning when I went to start my car
it couldn't 
I thought my Twingo was dead...

it wasnt in the end, just needed a new battery and a new tyre (yeah apparently i had a broken tyre on the front)

but the very bad part of the day was going home for lunch and discover my Laptop Sony Vaio dead too

with the "nice" blue screen error

STOP C0000218 (registry file failure)

I need an help
please if there is anyone of you who knows how to fix this.. help me!

I hope that all my videos and documents will be saved.

Ps. sorry if i will be off internet... lets hope to sort this out soon

I really like this nail polish by OPI
it was a present from a friend of mine in Youtube

Picture with flash

Picture with real light

San Tan-Tonino by OPI

even if for this spring and summer seem like that cream base pastel colours 
are the more in fashion
i don't mind to wear this polish even in spring or summer
i think is very sober and elegant

nice on the toes too

Okay, as I promised, these below are the pictures and some swatches of my Collection 2000 Haul

As I said on the video (here the LINK if you haven't seen it)
Collection 2000 has been a nice discovery regarding UK high street make up brands

We all know a very popular product from it 
The Lasting Perfection Concealer 

but apart from that this brand has a variety of  products with very affordable price but still very good quality

This is the clear mascara 
which i will used mostly for tidying my eyebrows 

The metallic cream eyeshadow 
is very nice and pigmented
i really like the shade i got

The Fast Stroke Eyeliner
very very BLACK 

Th Glam Crystals 
liner absolutely lovely

here you can see the swatches on the top right the Cream Eye-shadow
then on the centre the black eye-liner Fast Stoke (see how black it is)
below that the Glam Crystals liner in silver BEAUTIFUL
and below there a swatch of the Lasting Perfection Concealer

The Cream Puff  Lip Cream
i had to get myself 3 out of the 4 shades

absolutely fantastic!

here the swatches

Other swatches

Easy Caprese 4 Steps

easy and fast
the Caprese is a very popular dish here in Italy especially in very warm days cause it is so fresh but at the same time tasty :)

Because it has been pretty warm in the last few days  
I made it for myself 
so then I thought to show you the 4 steps you need for making the Captrse (very easy steps)

Tomatoes (I used cherry tomatoes cause i had them in the fridge)
Mozzarella cheese (or Bufala mozzarella or in this case here I have used a Burrata which is a very creamy and soft mozzarella cheese)
Olive Oil  and salt

quick and easy 
but super tasty

let me know if you try it

that was my dinner....

it was tasty!!!!

well so I can say to be 100% Irish.. 

I love Potatoes far more than Pasta...

TOPSHOP Make Up HAUL pictures/swatches

Start with same order of the video

this pretty amazing nail polish
Parma Violet

I have been loving this colour, soon i will post picture of my NOTD

this one was 5£

second nail polish is this amazing metallic effect colour
called Eyes of Steel

so different i have never seen something like that before

again it was 5£

I must say I will have to shop online again to get extra nail polish..
I love several colour they are not too pricey and the quality is very good indeed.. 
so pretty soon i will show you more colours!

The Lipstick

First thing i love the packaging (outside and inside)

once again (it did happen in the past to read that, about topshop make up)
as you can see this lipstick is made in 
weird... but I cant get any in here :(

the colour I got is the very popular 

we all know that this spring/summer 
orange lipsticks will the more in style..
so this is just perfect :)

so intense, LOVE IT!

the last, but not least
is the Highlighter


Once again... i love the packaging

outside  and

inside :)

the colour has an hint of gold, just perfect if you want to highlight cheekbones 
and other parts of the face
it is a good colour as well as eyeshadow

it is a powder product
so if you do have dry skin, or fine line near the eyes (like i have)
i mix it with some vaseline :)

and everything looks better 

let me know if you knew these products before.. and what other products you would
suggest me to get from TOPSHOP

so far I'm in love with all I have got 

hope you like it
