A Day of My Life in Pictures #2


Today I had to be awake very early
because we were going to Dublin
for a radio interview.

I woke up at 6.30 am.. and I was surprised to see outside the snow...


I love the snow, it was so beautiful, and it was coming down quiet heavily
as you can see


We took the train to go down the Republic
and after less then 30 minutes we entered in another season
SPRING

It was quiet cold in Dublin, but so sunny and so different to the weather we first
saw in the morning in Northern Ireland


I took a yummy hot chocolate to help me out
It was so nice!!


The we walked down the radio station
As you can see the sky was so clear
I have never been to Dublin without rain
so it was a nice surprise



The I spotted my compatriot Ennio Morricone in a poster


and then another thing which made me think about Italy
these two colourful doors next to each other
the Italian Flag!


I love tree, and this isn't a new thing if you follow my Instagram account


The we finally arrived at the station


The show lasted 1 hour
I was there taking pictures and video footage as usual
that's what I do and I really enjoy it



After the show we walked back to the station


Took our train back in Northern Ireland


Back to the snow!


I hope you enjoy this

Day of My Life in Pictures

MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Lipstick 940 Rose Rush REVIEW


Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm showing you my last lipstick
from my collection of

MAYBELLINE
Color Sensational
Creamy Mattes Lipstick

the shade is
940 Rose Rush

As I said previously, out of the 6 shades available here in the UK
I only bother to buy 4

here I leave you the links of the other 3 shades


 This last one is such a pretty shade
I was unsure if I was going to buy it or not, usually I'm not too keen on baby pinks
But this pink is not just a regular pink
it has a hint of lavender (I would say)
and it does look different, special in its way.

Also, once again, the formulation of these
Creamy Matte Lipsticks 
is AMAZING
so comfortable, so silky smooth
and not drying at all


I can't get enough, I only HOPE to get more shades in future available here in the UK
I will totally get them all!

Superdrug TEA TREE Facial Cleansing Wipes REVIEW


Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my blog.

Another day, another blog post...

Today in particular I want to talk about this facial wipes
which I've bought in

SUPERDRUG

their

TEA TREE
Facial Cleansing Wipes


So, last time I was at the drugstore and I was in need of facial wipes
and then I decided to give them a go

There are 30 wipes in here and in other brands of wipes usually you only get 25
These are also suitable for vegetarian and vegan
which makes me wonder what kind of ingredients are used in other wipes
where they don't say so....  mmmm

actually if it happens that you know, leave me a comment I'm very curious!

Also these wipes are cruelty free!!!! yeah :)

The main ingredient in these wipes are
natural tea tree and peppermint oils
and pro-vitamin B5

they claims to
"effectively eliminate impurities and remove makeup for a refreshed
clear looking complexion"

and do we want to mention the scent???

So fresh and minty!!!

I love it!

I use these in the morning to give my face a bit of kick
in fact the peppermint scent which is quite strong really helps me to "wakeup"
but I also use them at night to not only remove makeup, because let's be honest
waterproof products need much more to be removed
but I love just to give myself the final step using this wipes
just before apply my usual moisturiser
they really leave your face super fresh and clean!

If you can get this wipes
try them and let me know what you think

Bare in mind though, be careful with your eyes
because of the peppermint these can be quite stingy

MAYBELLINE BIG EYES Volum'Express Waterproof Mascara REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back!

Today I'm sharing with you my thoughts on this new mascara

I'm talking about the

Maybelline
BIG EYES
Volum'Express
Waterproof Mascara

I've bought this mascara during my latest Boots online shopping order
since my mascara was running out I actually needed a new one.

So I picked this up.
I have never tried this before and I was intrigued by the
"BIG EYES
on the package

This mascara is an double ended mascara it has a part for upper lashes
and the other side is for the lower lashes

I usually never, NEVER, apply mascara on my lower
just because I feel that drags my eyes down...
I don't know if it is true or not, but in reality I never bother to put mascara on my lower lashes.

I like the concept of this product
I like the lower lashes wand a lot
being so skinny makes it so much easier the application without any accident
(like poking my skin with the wand or my eyes which usually happens with bigger wands)

I'm not to keen on the formulation though
Don't get me wrong I don't think it is bad at all
but it isn't what I usually like.

If you like natural flowy lashes
this is for you!

It gives volume without adding any weight to the lashes
they still look very natural even with 2 coats

It is waterproof which is good, but at the same time is pretty easy to remove

This mascara is not for me
I usually love mascara which are able to make my lashes fake looking
heavy super black and at the touch solid fake..
that's me, my personal taste, I know that most of you probably disagree with me
and prefer your lashes to be nice an combed 
well in this case

Big Eyes will be PERFECT for you


NO MASCARA

ONE COAT OF BIG EYES

TWO COATS OF BIG EYES


I hope this review was useful
and if you have any question leave me a comment

NOTD // COLLECTION COSMETICS 7 Day Wear Nail Polish 25 Teal

 

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

Another Nail Polish today
another one from the

Collection Cosmetics
7 Day Wear Nail Polish

this time I'm wearing this beautiful shade 

25 Teal


I know, I own a lot of teal nail polishes
but for some reason this one by Collection seems better than all the other I owned

Two coats and you are ready to go
This was was also very glossy by itself
but still I top it up with my trusty
Seche Vite top coat, as usual!

I'm really loving this nail polish by Collection
this is the third one that I've tried from this line.

Here I leave  you the links of the other 2 shades in case you are curious

I've bought mine in Superdrug
for only £1.99 each!

They have a big selection of shades and finishes..

I will totally get some more.

Do you like Teal nail polish?
Have you ever tried this line by Collection Cosmetics?

Let me know

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick 12 Vintage REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today's blog post is about a new liquid lipstick that I have recently got
I'm talking about the

NYX
Liquid Suede
Cream Lipstick

in the shade 12
Vintage

I have already reviewed a shade from this line
I leave the link of the review HERE in case you want to have a look

---------

This shade is a very winter appropriate lip colour.
I would call it a burgundy/wine/bloody red.

It reminds in a lot Maybelline Divine Wine
here's a picture of it so than you can compared the 2 together



-----

I like this shade by NYX a lot
the only thing I have noticed
I'd say the only issue is that you need few layers of it in order to get
a good pigmentation 

With only 1 layer it applies very parchy
with 2 it is a bit better
with 3 is perfect!

I can say that with the other Liquid Suede that I tried from NYX
which was of a lighter shade
(shade 2 Life's a Beach)
I did not have such an issue, one layer of the cream lipstick and it was perfect
smooth application and great coverage

Those Liquid Suede do not smell of anything which I like
they have a nice applicator, a skinny pointy dofer applicator
which makes the application much easier

I would suggest you to use a lip pencil for those kind of dark shades
it is much easier to see any smallest mistake when it comes to dark liquid lipsticks

Have you ever tried this product?
and this particular shade?

Let me know

NIVEA Daily Essentials Regenerating Night Cream REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

At the beginning of January I start using a new night cream.

I always like to try out new products
and I certainly enjoy to get them when there are good offers available at the drugstore.

Pay less to try out something you are not sure if you are going to like is the best way to go

So anytime I'm at the drugstore my eyes go where the offer tag is

So this was the time for

NIVEA
Essentials Regenerating
Night Cream

The only products by Nivea that I have ever tried
were body lotions and hand creams
So this is the first time to try out a face moisturiser


This one is aimed to Normal and Combination skin
It comes in a nice blue jar
50ml like the usual...

It has Vitamin E and Hydra IQ

This cream claims to support the skin's regenerating process at night
because of its caring formula with Provitamin B5
Also the formula with Vitamin E provides a smooth and fresh skin feeling in the morning


To be honest I like this product
It is a rich cream perfect for night time
and as it claims, in the morning my face feels fresh and smooth

Another nice product from the drugstore

Have you ever tried it?

Let me know if you tried it and what you thoughts are about it..


take care

SLEEK MAKEUP Dancing Till Dusk Eye & Cheek Palette REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm talking about a little palette
which I got for free from Boots.com
There was an offer online, if you would have spent over £10 you would have gotten
 a free eye and cheek palette


And so I did make sure to spend that amount to get my free gift.


I'm talking about the

SLEEK MAKEUP
Dancing Till Dusk
Eye & Cheek Palette


This little compact palette
features shades from Sleek bestselling i-Divine
palettes and blushers

It's a multi purpose for eyes and cheeks
It claims to suit all skin tones
The palette comes with a large mirror, which is perfect for traveling

There are 2 blushers
and 4 eyeshadows

The blushers are
- Mirrored Pink Blush
- Sahara Blush

The eyeshadows are from the Au Natural Palette
and the shades are
- Cappuccino (the matte creamy colour)
- Mineral Earth (the shimmery brown)
- Taupe (the shimmery champagne colour)
- Bark (the matte brown)

I like this palette
I can see myself using the orange blush
also as an eyeshadow
why not!!!

Same amazing quality that Sleek Makeup always provides
when it comes to their product

I'm very impressed

It is a every day makeup palette
earthy shades for a more natural wearable look

I was very happy to received this product as a gift

I totally love it!

Have you got this palette?
Let me know

Leftovers ideas: Subway Style Sandwich | MICHELA ismyname ♥


Hi everyone welcome back!

I hate wasting food... I don't know why but it really bothers me..

Since I was a little child I was thought not to leave any food on my plate...
My mom used to say to me that it was rude and also very bad considering all the people
in the world who are starving right now.

So I guess those 2 things really stuck onto my mind and even now
that I'm not a little girl anymore I still follow what I learnt.

It is very rare that I waste food, VERY...
so tonight I had some bread that maybe some of you would have considered
too "old" and ready to be thrown out...

well not in my case... 

Enjoy!

NOTD // COLLECTION COSMETICS 7 Day Wear Nail Polish 24 Boo Blue


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I've got a 

Nail Of The Day
type of post

Any time I bought a new nail polish I feel so guilty since back home
I already own a TONS of nail polish...

ANYWAY

I don't know what to do
especially when nail polish are so affordable
like the one I'm wearing today by the brand

Collection Cosmetics

this one was only £ 1.99
How can you say no????

Another nail polish from their line

7 Day Wear

in the shade

24 Boo Blue


I love blue nail polish so much!!!!
This blue is a bit different than usual blue
it's more like a Dusky Blue

Nice and pretty

Two layers of it and you would be fine
but I added my third layer of my Beloved glossy Top Coat
by
Seche Vite

as you can see from the pictures the finish is super glossy....

the way I love it!


Are you a fan of blue nail polish?

Let me know some of your favourite one

VO5 Nourish my Shine Shampoo REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to talk about a new shampoo I've been using lately.

If you follow me for a while you might already know
that when it comes to shampoo I'm a loyal fan of
John Frieda Frizz Ease line, but this time I wanted to try something different

A brand which I have tried before, as styling product
but never as a shampoo
I'm talking about

VO5
Nourish My Shine
Shampoo


I only shampooed my hair twice with this shampoo
and I already love it.

It comes in a nice pick bottle
and 400 ml of product (which is nearly double than my regular John Frieda shampoo size)
for a much cheaper price

This particular one
Nourish My Shine
is aimed to damaged hair
in fact it claims
Rehab and Luxurious shine

to achieve this shine
it is infused with 5 vital oils
Argans
Jojoba
Apricot
Avocado
Grapeseed oil

To be honest
I have damaged hair
and I noticed that this shampoo left my hair super smooth and silky
without any conditioner
or without the help of any straightener

It got rid of the frizz
It added shine and also at the touch
I can feel my hair much healthier

A very good discovery!

MAYBELLINE Fit Me Concealer 20 Sand REVIEW


Hello everyone welcome back!

Today's blog post is about concealer.

I picked up a new concealer from the drugstore recently
and since I heard good feedbacks about it
I decided to try this time the

Maybelline
Fit Me
Concealer

I've got it in the shade

20 Sand

Lovely creamy concealer
the shade Sand is maybe a bit too dark for me, especially right now that I'm at my palest

Still though, I use it under my eyes
and the peachy tone in it really helps to cover up the dark under eyes

It is a nice product

Standard application method
standard packaging for a concealer
Easy to blend
and I feel that I can go without setting with powder
this concealer creases less than others I have tried in the past


I like it.

And you? Have you tried this concealer before?

Let me know

L'OREAL Skin Perfection Micellar Water REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back!

Today's blog post is about a new cleansing product that I've been testing out.

Lately I picked up the

L'OREAL
Skin Perfection
Micellar Water

I know, I know, this product has been around for a while now,
but before this time I was never able to try it out.

I think I'm not wrong to say that this product came out way before the
Garnier Micellar Water
in fact, I think, this was the first "drugstore" Micellar Water that came out

It claims to do everything that a micellar water does
Removing makeup
Toning the skin
unclogging pores

It does all those things, fine, but to me this product is very
VERY
inferior to any of the Garnier Micellar Water
that I have tried to far

I don't know why
I cannot put my finger on
but my skin doesn't like this product as much as it does like
the Garnier ones

My skin feel much smoother
and moisturised after using any of the Garnier Micellar Waters

Please I'd love to hear from any of you who had tried them both
Let me know which you like the most
and if you know the reasons

Also a very superficial thing
I don't particular like the packaging
it is not in any way as good to the 
Garnier Micellar Water
that's my opinion though and it is a very superfluous aspect to dislike

Anyway, at the end of the day
It does the job
but as a preference, it is not my favourite
that's all.
