Lip balms for windy days

Is there anyone out there that loves a statement lip but just wears lipbalms, lip perfectors and other products that you can reapply without a mirror  on a daily basis? And is there anyone out there that even when wearing products that you can reapply without a mirror does never reapply them during the day? Well, that’s me. However, I do carry about 50 lip products in my bag. You never know, the day might come when I want to reapply my lipstick everytime I go to the bathroom. I don’t want to be caught off guard. In the meantime I stick to easy, comforting formulas in pink / peach/ nude shades.  They give a light coat of colour to avoid the 8-hours-in-front-of-the-computer face and they moisturize your lips in a nice not too sticky way. You can still wear you hair down in a windy day, I promise. My favourites are the wonderful Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors. Subtle shades, nice pigmentation for a lip balm and a surpising longevity. My favourite is …

What’s in my bag? Travel edition

Do you travel light or full of “what ifs”? We always carry everything with us. Everything. The result: sore backs, grumpy moods and uncomfortable travel. But not anymore!!! We are determined to travel smart. Since we are going away this weekend (more on that this afternoon, stay tuned!) we’ve prepared a “just the essentials” travel bag. Well, apart from our phones, chargers, wallets and wipes, ehem, this is all we will take with us: 1. A medium size cross body bag. Free hands, cute colour, nice leather. It ticks all the right boxes. We bought this one in Hakei, one of our favourite Spanish shops. They have the best leather and fantastic designs. 2. Our camera. In fact we usually take two cameras with us. This one is our Canon Powershot S120. It’s small, easy to use (well, I still have to learn a few tricks) and records video too. 3. A notebook and a pen. To write drown all things important. And scrawling, mostly. 4. Oil blotting papers. Planes are awful to our skin, that’s …

New neutrals

I’ve been trying more beauty products lately. I used to be absolutely faithful to a couple of brands, but since I’m addicted to lots of beauty channels in You Tube now, I’m discovering a whole new world. And I’m loving it. Here you have a few new products that I’ve been loving lately: This Summer I bought the Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter in a railway station. Am I the only one who buys most of her beauty products in transit? Airports, railway stations, duty free or not… I don’t care. Anyway, I used to love Body Shop during college but since then I think I ‘ve never used any of their products ever again. Well, after listening to lots of Youtubers claiming that Body Shop body butter was the bomb I decided I should give it another chance. Do you know that they have a gazillion versions now? When I was in college there were the olive oil, coconut and almond body butters, I think. That was it. Well, now you can choose between every fruit imaginable!!! But I chose chocolate. Because …

Clinique Chubby

I think that a good lipstick is one of the most flattering accessories a woman can wear. It cheers up every face… if it’s chosen correctly. I have been looking for the perfect burgundy the whole Winter. It was the most trendy shade to wear, but somehow I couldn’t find the right one for me. Finally I did. Clinique chubby lipstick, grandest grape. It’s super moisturising, the colour stays for quite a lot of time and it’s really easy to apply. I know, I know, Winter is almost gone… I’m always late… but not for Spring! I’ve decided to buy the curvy candy, a lovely light pink, and the chunky cherry, a statement fuchsia to be prepare for warmer weather and sunny getaways. Have you ever tried these lipsticks?  No? You should! You can have a look at them and buy the one you like here. PS. That book by Emily Schuman, from Cupcakes and cashmere is really inspiring!
