October Favorites • 2013

HI GUUUUUUUYS!! I am again late, but you know we are finishing the year so we are almost! I have been so busy lately, and I promise that I haven't forget you, it's just that the days need more hours (he he)!!
I decided to do october and november favorites in two different posts because I've already taken the pictures for the october post!! Well, hope you enjoy!!

Colgate Luminous White Tooth Paste
This toothpaste is freaking amazing! I hate tooth pastes that are extremely minty because they make me cry, ha ha, but this paste is minty but in the perfect quantity! Also it leaves your teeth whiter!

VS Dream Angels Heavenly Perfume
I love this scent! It's a warm scent with floral smells and a touch of seduction! Perfect for everyday scent! it makes me feel very clean and feminine. I love feeling clean and that alone makes this scent quite comforting. I only do one spray a day because it is overpowering and for me I can still smell at at the end of the day!

Revlon Kabuki Brush
I use this brush for powder application and it works wonders! Its soft and dense to provide me with a nice decent coverage. Doesn't feel scratchy at the slightest! It's a great brush for the affordable price!

 Nivea Kiss lip butter // in Caramel Kiss
It does what it's supposed to. Moisturises well and leaves lips feeling soft. I put it on at night to prevent overnight drying of my lips. I didn't expect the containers to have so much lip butter in them, they last for a long time and they smell really good. Not much of a flavor to them though 

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact // in Rose
This is gorgeous applied as a stand alone blush to the apples of my cheeks. Also it works wonderfully as an eyeshadow palette! Very pretty, unique product, and the lightest strip particularly makes a great highlighter. The consistency is super soft and blendable. Expect a review for this product in the future!

SpaRitual nail polish // in Delight
This nail polish brand I discovered one day with my cousin! We investigate it a bit more about and we learn that this was a vegan and DBP, Formaldehyde and Toluene free! It's really creamy and it lasts for a long time! I love this color specially, but I have to say that you need 4 coats!

Favorite Movies:

The Call
A great movie for action and suspense! If you like movies like Taken, you are going to love this! It keeps you on the edge of your seat all the time! Great casting as well!

John Tucker must die
A great chick flick movie! Really funny and entertaining! 

The Internship
Amazing moviee! Wonderful casting, really funny! Love it!

Stuck In Love
Definitely one of my all time favorites! Made me laugh and cry! Perfect romantic movie! Great plot and casting!

August/September Favorites • 2013

How time flies, right? Yep, I know I sound like an old lady, but it's true, we are almost at the end of the year and I can't believe it! Today I'm doing to monthly favorites in one, yeah, I know I'm a bit late, but better late than ever! I promise that next monthly favorites are going to be on time!

Urban Decay Lip Junkie // in Naked
So I got this lipgloss with my naked 2 palette, I started wearing it recently and I love it! It has like a minty flavor and a great color that matches every lip color! 

Estee Lauder nail polish // in Berry Desire
This is like my first high end nail polish! I tried it and it is amazing! It has more of a liquid consistency rather than thick. The color is exactly what the bottle shows!

Benefit Benetint
I have the mini version that I got on a set! I wasn't expecting much, but when I tried it, I totally fell in love with it! It has an awesome smell! I would totally buy the full version!

Benefit "They are real" mascara
This joined the group of my favorite mascaras! All the rave it's true, this mascara is amazing! The texture and the brush make everything! I am totally buying this again!

Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette
I didn't use this for a long time until now! I started trying new looks with this palette and I am loving it! Obviously, knowing myself, I just use the neutral shadows!

Yankee Candle // in Home Sweet Home
Bath & Body work's candle are still my favs, I just wanted to try a new brand! The smell of this candle is just so cozy! This candle is not as strong as other candles! 

L'oreal Ever Sleek Leave-In Cream
I have used this for a really long time! I love how it leaves my hair! Also it is sulfate free; I apply it when i get out of the shower and my hair is towel dried!

Favorite TV shows and movies:

I loved this movie! Great landscape, awesome actors! Obviously, Nicholas Sparks!

I really liked this movie! Great plot and it was just something different for a romantic movie!

PLL mid season finale!! AMAZING!! I just don't want to say anything in case someone is not up to date with the show!

Favorite song of the month:

July Favorites • 2013

And we are in August! How time flies, right?
Today I am showing you my favs for the past month! I don't have a lot, but hope you enjoy!

 Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara // in Very Black
I really like this mascara! Firstly because I'm a sucker for lengthening mascaras (umm...covergirl lash blast length, maybelline illegal length, don't you see a pattern there!). This mascara makes your lashes big and separated! I really don't know which one I prefer yet, the covergirl or the maybelline one!

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter // in Sugar Plum
I'm a sucker for berry colors as well, and this is the perfect berry color, it's not super dramatic nor super sheer! 

OPI Nail Polish // Lincoln Park After Dark
THIS NAIL POLISH IS THE BOMB.COM! I would repurchase this color over and over again! It has a perfect consistency and a perfect color!

Victoria's Secret Ultimate Look Shadow Trio // in Royal
I always come back to this trio! I think I like it because of the colors! They compliment really good with my skin and my eye color (green)! 

Bath & Body Works Body Lotion // in Dark Kiss
I have decided, my favorite smell for body lotion and body spray is Dark Kiss! It's just amazing, it's sweet, sexy and perfect, all at the same time!

Whittard Flavour Instant Tea // in Damson Plum
Another Whittard tea, I know, I'm kinda obsessed! This flavour is really different from any of the other ones, I almost feel like I'm drinking flowers!

Favorite TV Shows and Movies:

Pretty Little Liars // Season 4
Obviously, this has to be one of my favorites! The new season is AMAZING!

The Vampire Diaries // Season 1
I started watching the vampire diaries, and wasn't expecting that much, I'm not a fan of the vampire phase, but I gave it a chance! And know I'm just hooked on it!

Hangover Part III
What a great movie! I have watched every single hangover movie, so I had tow watch this one! No comments, in my opinion, the best one!

Just a cute movie I watched when I was bored! I have to say that I was really impressed, I didn't expect a lot for this movie!

Pacific Rim
Another movie I wasn't interested in! My dad wanted to watch it, so I watch it with him, and I have to says that I was shocked, it was REALLY GOOD!

☼ Light Summer Makeup ☼

Hi guys! Today I'm doing my light summer makeup routine! Showing you step by step my routine and my staples for a light look! Hope you enjoy!

1.- Apply a light brightening concealer. I apply my Maybelline Age Rewind (which I love) in my under eye circles and a little farther in my face for a bright look!

2.- Apply powder. I apply an old Revlon Colorstay Powder (which I'm almost out) in my face. This helps setting the concealer.

3.- Apply a cream eyeshadow. I'm using my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yoghurt,which is a really pretty champagne color, perfect for the lid!

4.- Apply a light color to the inner corner. I'm using another NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese, which is a pearl color.

5.- Apply eyeliner. I'm using just an old eyeliner that I have, you can use any black or brown eyeliner you have! The trick is to lightly apply it on the outer lower lashes for a fuller look!

6.- Apply your favorite waterproof mascara. Here I applied two of my favorites, Covergirl LashBlast Length in Black/Brown and Lancome Virtuose Mascara. Apply to lower and upper lashes!

7.- Apply a tinted lip balm. Here I was deciding between 2 of my favorite tinted lip balms, L'oreal Color Riche Lip balm in Rose Elixir and Maybelline Baby Lips in Grape Vine.

And my look is complete! What are your makeup staples for the summer?

NOTD: Essie - First Timer • 2013

Essie, essie, essie; you never let me down! The nail polish for today is Essie First Timer from the Resort Collection from this year! I would describe this color as a mix between a mint color and a true bright green. There is definitely a turquoise tinge to this one and it isn't quite a true green. A really original color!

2 coats + top coat, natural light 

From left to right: OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, Essie First Timer and OPI Mermaid Tears.
Here's a picture comparing Essie first timer side by side with OPI Gargantuan Green Grape and OPI Mermaid Tears (review here).

Overall I really like this nail polish. I think is perfect for my skin tone and it applies like a dream!

Hope you guys enjoy! Would you go for a color like this?

Products I Regret Buying • 2013

So hi guys!! Today I am writing one of my favorite type of videos/post, the famous "Products I Regret Buying". A very controversial video/post! I think these are really helpful because it gives you other points of view on different products! I really like to research before splurging or buying a product most of the time! So here it is:

ps: not because this products didn't work for me, doesn't mean that they will not work on you, I am just giving my honest opinion!

- John Frieda Frizz-Ease Straight Fixation: I was really disappointed, because I love John Frieda products but this one I really didn't like. It left some type of residue on my hair, and it didn't do what it claimed! But my mom on the other hand loves this product!

- Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner: The reason I didn't like this product was purely because it broke me out! But it felt really nice on my skin! Again, on the other hand I gave this to my mom and she likes it!

- Essence My Skin 4 in 1 cleansing cream: This is one of the few products I HATE. First it broke me up. Second it felt really itchy on my skin and it felt like I had some type of acid that was kinda of destroying my skin. And third, this didn't claim any of the 4 things it said!

- X out Shine Control: I got this in one of my "My Glam" bag! I didn't like it because it felt like stretching my skin and I really didn't ever reach out for this product!

- Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Waterproof Mascara: I didn't like this mascara because it was like "too" much for me, like it was like really dramatic, and the brush is really big so I ended up messing with all of my eye makeup!

- NYX Roll On Shimmer in Light Blue: Again, I got this in one "My Glam" bag. I didn't like it because the color isn't really wearable and it always left fall over  in my skin!

- Maybelline Super Natural Mat Foundation in Nude: This foundation was really hard to apply and blend. It is really dry and it didn't look natural! After like 1 hour it left like patches of foundation on my skin!

- Jordana Eyeliner in White: Well, this was like $99 cents. It was really cheap so I expected to work like it did. It isn't pigmented at all and it was so hard to apply. I had to like poke my eye with it!

Hope you guys enjoy! What are products that you regret buying?

Empties #1 • 2013

From left to right: Bath & Body Works IntoThe Wild Body Lotion(it on sale for $4!!)// Paul Mitchell The Detangler Conditioner// Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo// Dove Damage Therapy Conditioner// Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelettes// OPI RapiDry Top Coat// L'oreal Magic Lumi Concealer// Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Mint anti-bacterial hand gel// Bioré Nose Pore Strips// Sally Hansen Fast Acting Polish Remover// Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Conditioner// OPI Nail Strengthener// La Roche-Posay Effaclar gel moussant purifiant

Hi guys!! So pretty much I love watching videos and reading posts about what products people have used up; yeah, I know, I'm weird. The cool thing is you actually get to see what people think about the product! 
Because of my love with "empties" I decided to start doing them. Maybe there's someone out there with my same opinion! Relax and read, hope you guys enjoy!

 - Bath & Body Works IntoThe Wild Body Lotion: I really like Bath & Body Works body lotions, they have amazing smells and the smell stays for a really long time. I have gotten a bunch of compliments from the Into the wild smell, it has like a tropical, fruity smell that wakes you up!

Paul Mitchell The Detangler Conditioner: I tried this small sample and I really didn't think it did that much, I would definitely not repurchase it!

Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo: I freakin love this shampoo! I have repurchase it a ton of times and I'm going to repurchase it again. It's a clarifying shampoo, I don't use it on it's own, I have try it alone and it does not work that great! I use first my favorite shampoo which is my clear something smooth shampoo and then I use this one, I think it's like the best combo ever, I have been using it for a really long time, maybe 10 months! And by the way it's smells AMAZIIING!!

Dove Damage Therapy Conditioner: Another sample. I think this conditioner was ok, it was like normal. I would not repurchase it!

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelettes: Touchy subject for me. I have tried a lot of make up removers towelettes, and I always come back to this ones, they are amazing, they take everything, they don't make my face itchy or sensitive! I have repurchase this a thousand of times I would continue to do it.

OPI RapiDry Top Coat: I got this baby sample in a set! I tried and it was ok, it dried up really fast, so that is a con. I think there are cheaper and better options out there. I would not repurchase it!

 - L'oreal Magic Lumi Concealer: I loveee this concealer, it brightens up your hole face and it's light! Overall it's a really good concealer! I would definitely buy it again!

Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Mint anti-bacterial hand gel: I really like these anti bacterial gels, this smell was great!

Bioré Nose Pore Strips: I really like nose pore strips, these worked really good. I would repurchase them!

- Sally Hansen Fast Acting Polish Remover: I really don't know what to say about this. It was a good nail polish remover, it removed every color, it didn't left my hands dry! Mmmm, that's all!

Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Conditioner: This is a really good conditioner, I like to rotate my conditioners but this is a line that I always come back to, they smell really good, they leave my hair soft, they are affordable, yada yada! I would repurchase it!

OPI Nail Strengthener: This really makes a difference, I've been using this for years, and my nails almost never break! I would repurchase it!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar gel moussant purifiant: I really like this face wash, I've been using them for years. They are really good when I'm with sensitive skin. I love the scent that it has! I would definitely repurchase it!

Well, that was all, hope you guys enjoy this post, and let me know in the comment below if you like empties posts!!

My OPI Glitter Nail Polishes • Nails

 Hi guys! Don't you like glitter? It's just one of the best inventions! My favorite way to wear it is on nails! So today I'm showing you a piece of my nail polish collection! After, I can show you guys my non OPI glitter nail polish collection! Let's start!

Random fact: this was my first nail polish ever!
 I got this nail polish a long time ago, but it's still one of my all time favorites! This is not a chunky glitter polish, it's really sheer so be sure to put a color under! I recommend using any type of blue tone or black nail polish! There’s a lot of depth to this polish, which makes it special! You can buy it here.

This polish! It has really chunky glitter, multicolor! Just like the name says! It's like a rainbow on your nails! You can buy it here.

Divine swine, definitely one of my favs! I have used it a LOT! I really like wearing it with OPI "Pamplona purple", I have a NOTD about it, so if you want to see it just click here. You can buy it here.

For me, this nail polish has become a tradition! Every time around christmas I put it on my nails! In my opinion this screams Christmas! I normally use this with a red polish underneath, but I'm sure it will still look good with nothing underneath. I have NOTD here. You can buy it here.

Teenage Dream is a baby pink glitter polish! It has a thick consistency, but surprisingly easy to apply! This looks gorgeous with a baby pink color underneath! I really like this nail polish! You can buy it here.

In the picture above you have swatches of every color! As you can see "Excuse Moi" and "Teenage Dream" are really opaque, so you really don't need to apply a color underneath! Every swatch is just on swept! 

Hope you guys enjoy this post!! What's you favorite glitter nail polish?

June Favorites • 2013

 Hi guys!! Today I'm showing you my June favorites!! I hope you guys enjoy!! So just lay back and read!

Maybelline Baby Lips// in Grape Vine
This is my favorite baby lips, the color payoff that leaves is really pretty. It's like a shiny berry color! I have a full review of the baby lips here.

L'oréal Nude Magique BB Concealer
I was helping my mom choosing a new concealer, and she said I could choose one for myself, so I choose this one, I have never heard anything about it, so I just decided to try it. Turns out that  I love it, I apply it on my dark circles and it covers everything, it really like and I love the application, it'slike a rollerball. If you want me to review it just comment below!

Bodycology body cream// in Toasted Vanilla Sugar
This came in a value set. It supposed to be a body cream but I started using it as a hand cream and this literally is the best hand cream I have ever tried!!

L'occitane Angelica Hydration Cream
So while I was in my trip my mom noticed that I was using a really bad face moisturizing and she wanted me to use a good one, surprise, surprise, she gave me this face cream. I was just shocked, I had never tried anything L'occitane because they are expensive! The point is that I tried it and I fell in love, it's so light and it's organic, it really makes my face look glowy and awesome! I love it!

Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Lip Balm
This  lip balm is amazing! It smells AMAZING! I apply it before going to sleep, and I just want to eat it!

Slatkin & Co. Candle// in Pineapple Orchid
This candle have lasted me a lot!! It's smells really good and it just fills my whole room with a good smell!!

Knuckle rings
I have been loving knuckle rings! These are the two I have, the silver one is from Urban Outfitters and the gold one is from a random store in New York!

Favorite movies:

The Holiday

The other day my mom and I watched this movie, so we watched it and we both loved it! It's just amazing and we both cried!! A definite favorite of mine!

Made of Honor

My dad watched this movie, yes, my dad, and he thought I would like it, so I'm sick, yeah, it sucks, the good thing is that I have time to watch movies and I watched this one, and it's so cute!!

 Now You See Me

I went to the cinema the other day with a friend and we wanted to see Safe Heaven, the thing is, we didn't get in time, so we decided to see this movie, and I really wasn't expecting anything good. I LOVEEEED IT. So many good actors (yes, I'm referring to Dave Franco)!

How to follow me? • Google reader going away!

Picture from here
Hi guys! I am going to leave this post sweet and short! Some of you may know that if you follow blogs using Google Reader (or follow blogs at all), I'm sure you've heard that Google Reader is going away, and soon!!  Like this Monday! This means that if you receive updates from my blog and the rest of the blogs you follow via Google Reader or if you have subscribed to blogs via GFC (Google Friend Connect), you will no longer be subscribed to those blogs unless you do something by another via!

You just have to do it before Monday. After Monday, all the hard work you put into finding just the perfect blogs for you will be gone. 

Something that I recommend is Bloglovin! I personally use it to follow the blogs that I like, and it's amazing, you can organize by categories and it's really easy to find the blogs that you like and to follow them! It has a very simple layout, a clean look, and a great search feature that allows you to find blogs like the ones you already follow. It to has ways to categorize your blogs and is a lot faster than the old Google Reader. 

So if you want another way to follow blogs (and me ! ) I recommend Bloglovin! I have a button in the side bar if you want to follow me on there!

But in case here's another one:

April/May Favorites • 2013

Hi everyone!! Hope you all are having an awesome friday! Today I'm showing you my April/May favorites! I know I'm really late, but I was really busy! Enjoy!!

Nivea Soft Cream
As I told you guys on my last post, I went on vacations with my family! And I got a really bad sunburnt on my back, so every night I applied this, and it really help soothing and refreshing my back! It's light and has a good smell!

Essie nail polish// in "Fun in the Gondola"
I bought this recently, and I love it! It is a cool toned mauved pink, perfect for everyday wear!

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush// in "Hot Tamale"
Maybelline dream bouncy blushes, ugh, a really controversial product in the beauty world! It's a bit tricky to apply, at first I used to apply it with my fingers and I hated it, but then I try with a flat blush brush and it worked like wonders!

EOS lip balm// in"Balm Summer Fruit Smooth Sphere"
I like EOS lip balms! At first I didn't like them because I felt that they didn't hydrate my ups! But after using them constantly I started to love it! I think the trick is that you have to just "break them in" just as new shoes!

Rose bud lip salve
I know, I know, I've already talk about this on a monthly favorites!! But this month I found other uses for this product! I was reading some beauty articles and they said that this was great as a highlighter and as a brow gel, so I tried it and they were right! Even if it sound weird it works amazing! So overall I freakin love this product!

Calvin Klein Aviator Sunglasses
I love this sunglasses, I can't stop wearing them! I got them at an outlet, at a really good price! They match everything!

Favorite Food Favorites: bagels and cream cheese! 

Favorite TV shows and movies:

Oblivion Movie

I watched this movie on April and I loved it! It was really good! Tom Cruise acted really good! In general, a great sci-fi movie!

The Host

I watched this movie with some friends and I really liked it! I wished I read the book before watching the movie but I couldn't resist! I'm not really sure if I'm reading the book because I hate knowing what happens! Great actors! Two hotties! Overall a great movie!

Iron Man 3

My family is a big Iron Man fan, so we went and watched and I think it was the best so far!! If you haven't watched any Iron Man movie, please watch it!!


I finished the season, and I was so saaaad!! I would really like that they do another season!! Please MTV!!

Favorite song of the month:

Favorite City: Chicago (some pics that I took)
