About me!

Tomorrow I will be one year older, AGAIN!!!!
Every freaking year the same thing! Just means I’m alive, and thankfully well enough. But 31 sounds soooooooooooooo heavy… especially considering I feel far from the thirties. I still feel like a kid and although I understand life like an adult and understand responsibilities, I tend to act more like a young adult, in the early twenties. Although my sister tends to insist I sometimes act more like a teenager… -.- I think that might be a bit to exaggerated.

My middle sister and I are 4 years apart and her birthday was just exactly 8 days ago. Truth be told we don’t make a big fuss over it and we spend it pretty much like a normal day. The only thing we did differently was going to the Korean embassy to return a book. At least we got to be together. Tomorrow however, that will not be possible, it’s just me and my grandparents!

Today I just bring you one of my outfits
Pointy boots – bought at a very good Portuguese boutique that no longer exists I’ve had them for more than 10 years
Lacey tights – by calzedonia
Lacey and frilly dress – bought at a boutique here in the neighbourhood
Blazer – by Zara kids
Flowery lacey ring – by Lolipops (Xmas present)

I find myself wearing this blazer a lot, lately! It’s super handy for this very annoying weather.
Hope everyone is doing great and see you soon!
I will post a REVIEW on the Etude House Moistful Collagen Eye cream, next.

L'OCCITANE Stick Déodorant Fraicheur Review

The merry month of May. How has everyone been doing?
Not so bad around here. Became very happy when one of my last orders arrived last week and I will show you on my next post what I got. Bought on ebay, on the f2plus1 store. It was my first buy from that store and it arrived so fast and with samples! On the other hand the ruby ruby order is late… but I’m trying not to freak out much!

Today I’m going to make a little review about a very necessary item, a deodorant that I’ve been using for a year and half and that is precisely how long one deodorant lasted! Not bad!

 L’OCCITANE Stick Déodorant Fraicheur with Verbena.
 As you can see from the sticker that I used the moment I started using, it lasted VERY long. Of course it wasn’t cheap, not even close! At that time I bought it as Christmas present for my grandmother because she also has very sensitive skin and I wanted a good product. Unfortunately she didn’t like the fact that it was in stick form and she passed it on to me. It cost me 15 euro! It did HURT a lot at the time, but it was for my grandmother.

Packaging: simple and practical. Has all the ingredients list.
Fragrance: it smells like verbena, a very refreshing fragrance that I like a lot. Good for both summer and even winter
Texture: stick form. It has nothing to do with the roll on ones that are liquid and I don’t really like them. It’s very smooth when applying it to the skin.

Colour: the stick in itself is a very light beige colour. The new one is plain white. If see it’s shiny, it’s because the new one still has a plastic cover to protect the product. Of course on my skin it looks like this
As if I had nothing on my skin at all. It doesn’t stain clothing either.

What I like: very much everything reason why I bought it again! It lasts very long, it doesn’t get sticky or wet when applied. It does help a lot with not smelling so bad but it lets your skin sweat because the skin needs that. It’s refreshing, caused no allergies whatsoever; on the contrary it helped calm my skin last summer, because I’m allergic to my own sweat! I would wash a little with water, after exercising or getting home, and would apply it. I did use it several times a day during the summer. It doesn’t stain your clothing. There is NOTHING I don’t like!

From my experience IT IS COMPATIBLE with every type of hair removal!

The new one is just like the old one, ingredient wise except they added lemon to it! At first I have to admit I did not like the fragrance that much, but after a week using it, I’m quite used to it and actually started to like it. It’s still refreshing!

Hope this review will help someone. It’s the only thing I now buy from this brand because it’s very expensive and I find that Korean cosmetics work better for my skin as well; maybe I should have tried a Korean brand deodorant?

OOTD and Rambling

Already in May! In Portugal they say that with May’s rain women become beautiful!! It’s when the flowers bloom and become beautiful as well, so “it happens the same to women”. It’s also my sister’s birthday and my own. I’m not sure if that is the reason why I like this month, or maybe it is also because the flowers bloom and you can feel Spring time has arrived.

Spent one week without uploading my blog! Promised myself I would update every week and already missed one, even if it’s just to talk about my boring life. It’s been a bit busy, but nothing extraordinary happened, and in this case, it’s good. It means everything is stable and nothing got worse.

 Well grandmother isn’t feeling too well today, but I think it’s due to weather as well and maybe because she has been thinking about the accident last year and her birthday was also in April, one more year has passed, so she is feeling a bit down. Hopefully it will pass.

A picture of my outfit of the day (of a couple of days ago). I’ve had blazers for so many years and never realized, until this year, how good and handy they are, especially for these mid-seasons. I know it’s stupid, should have realized it much early. Better late than never! 

Starting from the bottom:
Flats by Parfois
Kid’s socks by Calzedonia
Puffy red dress by Chinese store
Blazer by Zara kids

Badly need to tan my very white legs, so since it was a warmer day, used those tiny socks. I get sunburns very easily EVERYWHERE in my body except from the knees down!!!!! From my knees to my ankles, because my feet will also get sunburns if I’m not careful, my skin will stay white! I’ve tried everything, including leaving just my legs in the sun for a very long time and still nothing. A bit ridiculous! So every time the weather feels warmer, bare legs it is!

Thanks to everyone that follows my blog and comments!
