I Need Some Vitamins!!!


Hi everyone.
Welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm back with a concern about my health.

Over the last 2 months I have been sick twice, and for me this is a bit too much.

Usually I never get sick, no fever, no flu or temperature...
never..

Now if I think about it.. there has been a change on my diet
over the last several months.

I have become Vegetarian last September.. 
and where and when I can, I always rather a vegan dish over a vegetarian.
So I think I need an extra help on my diet...

I went to Tesco and I picked up 3 different types.

The Multivitamins + Iron
The Vitamin B Complex
and
The Magnesium

This is the first time in my life to get supplements
In Italy where I come from, getting supplements was always
seen as a unnecessary
My doctor used to say to me..
"why getting supplements? all the vitamins you need
are in the food you eat"

well
No anymore apparently..
especially the famous
Vitamin B12
which human can only get from animals..

I really hope that all this vitamins will help to make me feel better
I don't want to get sick anymore over 2017
I have already done it twice... Thanks!

Are you Vegetarian or Vegan?
What supplements are you getting?
Any tips??


let me know

I'm Trying Contact Lenses!


Hi everyone!

Welcome back to my blog.

Today I went to my local Specsavers
I was there to pick up my new glasses and also
to do a free try on
of daily contact lenses.

I have been wearing glasses since primary school
I always been astigmatic
in both eyes
my Rx eye is the good one
and the Lx is the lazy one

Anyway
working with laptop and iphone all day
over the years
probably lately it made my sight even worse
So I end up wearing glasses all the time (indoor)

I have never tried Contact Lenses ever
so since Specsavers was having this amazing free trial
I decided to give it a go

I got given those

Dailies
Aqua Comfort Plus
Alcon

So right now as I write, I'm wearing them.
It was a nightmare putting them on and off... 
so to be honest
I'm not quite sure what I will decide to do
next wednesday at the next appointment

Do you wear contact lenses?
Should I stick with it, or not?

I'm not quite sure yet.

MUA Pro-Base Prime & Conceal Correcting Cream REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to talk about a new product from the drugstore
that I have been liking a lot.

Dark under eye circles are a nightmare
especially if like me
you are not a young girl anymore
and the under eye area
is starting to look a bit like this


Maybe not as bad as this yet, of course
but
trying to cover the darkness with heavy duty concealer
most of the time make the situation even worse 

The skin under my eye is so thin and dry
anything that I put on top of it  sits on my lines
and even if this is able to counteract the darkness
at the same time it  makes me look older than I am

I decided to try a lighter (in formulation)
product for under my eyes
like a CC concealer
or Colour Corrector

Of course there are many high end brands which do those
but I wanted to try from the drugstore first.

So I tried this one from

MUA
Make Up Academy


This is their

Pro - Base

Prime & Conceal

Correcting Cream


I know, a mouthful
but this little product
actually works.

It covers my darkness
without being heavy on my super thin skin

I apply it as it meant to,
before foundation
and it works

No need of extra concealer
the darkness is less without making me look
older than I am

I might try a more expensive version of this in future
but so far this little one is doing its job.

NOTD // Ciaté London Paint Pot The Glossip

 

Hi everyone and welcome back to my channel.

It has been a while since my last

NOTD
(nail of the day)

Here I am today with this gorgeous colour by

Ciaté London

 one of their

Paint Pot

in the shade

The Glossip

I absolutely love the formulation of any
Ciaté nail polish that I have tried.
Opaque in even one coat.
Long lasting, and super glossy.

This colour in particular was a free gift few months back
in a magazine.

I love the shade.
It is a very warm, orange Red
It's bright and sophisticated at the same time, I think.

The perfect RED for any season.

L'OREAL L'Or Highlighter REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my channel.

Today I'm back with a highlighter.

A new product for me
from

L'OREAL

this is their

L'Or Highlighter

I love this small little pot.
Even though on the back it says
"powder highlighter"
this product feels anything rather than a powder product
To me this product is creamy and super blendable
It goes on so well


I like to use it over the top after my bronzer and blusher
It gives a lovely golden shine 
I also have applied it as an eyeshadow
and I really love it.


This is a product which would enhance your tan
so it is a perfect friend for the summer holidays

I really like it.

Have you got one of these?

Let me know what you think.

Being Sick........ SUCKS!


Hello my friends....

This Wednesday started pretty well..
I woke up early because I needed to go to a couple of appointments.

I felt fine, at first this morning,
just a running nose and a scratchy throat
(since it has been really cold and windy over here)
Then about lunch time I started feeling
really CRAP
tried, with shivery all over my back
painful arms and legs...

I know when I feel like this
9 out of 10
I have a temperature

I came home and, YEP 
I was right...

This is the second time in year 2017
that I have the flu
and temperatures...

I picked up few necessities to fight the germs away
Of course
PARACETAMOL
(for the flu and fever, and the aching bones)
Vitamin C
to rebuilt my immune system
Some Halls candies
those are great when you have sore throat
and Olbas Oil
few drops of this in a paper tissue will help
my running, blocked nose....


I hope I get better soon..
I hate being sick.


What's your favorite remedy to get better when you have the flu??

MANDARA SPA Amber Heaven Shower Cream REVIEW


Hi everyone, and welcome back to my channel.

Today I want to talk about basic stuff.
Shower Gels

I generally buy drugstore brands
when it comes to shower gels, or bath creams
I would love to be able to buy Lush or higher brands all the time
but honestly
I cannot justify the cost..

So I always grab something cheap
and I'm usually satisfied

Sometimes I received gifts
for Christmas or my Birthday
and I get the chance to try something more pricey

like in this case...

MANDARA SPA

Amber Heaven

Shower Cream

"...Immerse yourself in the sensual fragrance of sandalwood and patchouli
and experience the exotic spa paradise where you can
enjoy the ultimate pampered experience.

Naturally pampering ingredients:
Softening rice milk, soothing hibiscus flower milk,
gentle shea butter cleanser, fragrant sandalwood,
patchouli and ylang ylang.

Each Mandara Spa product is specially formulated
using the latest skincare technology combined with naturally
active raw materials.
Mandara Spa products are all free from SLES, SLS, parabens,
mineral oils, animal ingredients (except honey, beeswax and milk)
and DEA ensuring their suitability for all but the most sensitive
of skins and honouring the purity of the ingredients
whilst delivering enviable efficacy..."

I'm a huge fan of patchouli and sandalwood scents
so this is heaven to me.

It leaves my skin moisturized
with a beautiful long lasting scent

It feels like a SPA when I shower with this product.

I would like to try more products by this brand,
if you have tried any, please let me know
in case you have any suggestions.


Thanks

COLLECTION Eye Definition Liquid Eyeliner REVIEW


Hi everyone.
Welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm going to talk about a new liquid eyeliner.

For the last 18 months I have been constant fan of the same product
which I still love

Seventeen
Tattoo Me Eyeliner

I felt, I needed to change and try something different
so I picked this up in Superdrug
by the brand

COLLECTION

their

Eye Definition
Liquid Eyeliner

Since I loved my Seventeen Tattoo Liner
I was totally sure that this liquid liner wasn't going to impressed me.

I was wrong.

Pricewise is super affordable
less than £3.00
It is long lasting (maybe a bit less than the Seventeen one)
but still it stays put all day
and also is very easy to remove
even with a normal face wipes
(which is impossible for the Tattoo Me Eyeliner)

So I'm very impressed with this product
I totally recommend it
if you are like me
where Eyeliner is a MUST.

I would repurchase this again.

Have you ever tried it?

What's your favourite Liquid Eyeliner?

Let me know
