April Loves

April 30, 2017



It's April favourites time! This month I've discovered some amazing products that I really want to share with you, even though most of them are already well loved cult classics. Without further ado, let's get on with the post!

Yes, It’s True...

April 27, 2017


...a NARS está mesmo a chegar a Portugal! Excitement levels: 1000000. Soube desta mega novidade há uns meses, mas a confirmação oficial só chegou agora: a NARS aterra nas nossas lojas Sephora a 6 de junho e a minha wishlist já é do tamanho do meu braço, especialmente porque nunca experimentei nada da marca visto que é uma chatice encomendar de fora.

Bronze & Glow

April 26, 2017



As I'm typing this, I still can't believe I finally own this beauty! If you asked me, at any given time, what makeup item I'd want in my collection, I'd say the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow in a heartbeat. Like, I wouldn't even have to think about it! It's truly one of those products that had been on my wishlist for ages, but the horrific price tag always held me back. I mean, 65€ gals... Imagine the things I could buy with that money! (Not a lot, realistically, but still).

7 Products I’d Repurchase Again & Again

April 22, 2017



When it comes to beauty, I'm not a repeat offender. It's very rare that I'll find myself repurchasing a product once I run out, purely because I'm always super eager to try new things instead of spending my money on the same old product – yes, even if I love it to bits. However, once in a blue moon there are exceptions, which is the ultimate sign of a product reaching cult status for me! Here are seven products I will repurchase time and time again...

Easter Wishlist

April 16, 2017



My beauty wishlist is, as always, never ending. I've managed to stick to just two beauty purchases per month – kinda (super) proud about that! –, but that doesn't mean I don't have a wishlist as long as my arm! However, with Easter come some Easter treats and some money to spend, which makes it the perfect occasion to splurge a little on some things that I've had my eye on for ages...

6 Perfect Lipsticks For Spring & Summer

April 14, 2017



Lipstick is arguably my favourite makeup item. I've built up quite the collection, sometimes having about seven lipsticks that are all the same hue (but they're different, I swear!), and yet I'm always on the lookout for more shades to add to my stash!

Despite having more lipsticks than I can count, they're all pretty much in the nude side of things. I have four of five bright lipsticks, yes, but I tend to reach for the lightest ones as I feel they suit me best. With that in mind, I thought I'd share six beautiful lipsticks I'm gonna be rocking this Spring and Summer...

5 Beautiful Blogs You Should Be Following

April 09, 2017



One of the things I love the most about the blogging community is the fact everyone is, for the most part, super lovely and uplifting – whether you're friends or just mere strangers. I've had times when everything felt too overwhelming and I was once this close to just quitting, but this community really kept me going. I'm so glad I did, because this little hobby of mine is SO rewarding and fulfilling!

Now that the sap is out of the way, I really want to share some of the blogs that are written by the loveliest people who inspire me, make me laugh, lead me to bankruptcy and all those good things on a daily basis!

Emma Hardie Moringa, The Balm of All Cleansing Balms

April 06, 2017



Sometimes some products are SO good that you don't even want to write a big ol' introduction and keep people on the edge of their seats to find out whether you'd recommend it or not... Yep, that is the case here! Wow is really all I can say about the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, probably the best skincare product I have ever tried.

Before we start, I have to let you know that my skin probably wins the award for World's Most Sensitive and Annoying Skin, considering it reacts to nearly EVERYTHING – foundations (especially), eye creams, primers, moisturisers... You name it, my skin reacts to it. It's a totally pain in the bum, so I wasn't really expecting miracles with this. Still, I finally took the plunge when I saw the Christmas bauble on Cult Beauty for a really kind price (skincare is expensive as fudge) and the magic unravelled in front of my very eyes.

Como conter o entusiasmo acerca das novidades que vão começar a aparecer pela Sephora? Impossível, digo-vos já!

Pensei em fazer um recap de todas as novidades que vão aparecer pela Sephora durante este mês e o próximo – e outras MEGA novidades que deverão chegar ainda este ano! Vamos lá começar porque há muito para contar.
