Hello, my friends!  Today I’m writing about 10 things I want to accomplish or to keep trying to do for this new year 2017. It’s always exciting to enter a new year, you feel fresh and new and motivated. So this is my list of 10 things for new years.

  1. Grow my Blog  (Don’t stop posting) It’s always hard for me to be consistent with my blog with all the stuff that I have to do, but this year and for the rest of the year I’ll try to be full on posting about everything I find interesting.
  2. Fix our new apartment I am feeling super excited about our move and I’m constantly looking for home decoration on Pinterest. Do you have any cute art that we can frame for our home? please comment down bellow it can help me a lot!
  3. Start being more grateful- Well instead it would be to start showing more gratefulness about everything, life itself! or little things that are important.
  4. Work towards eating healthier– Especially around this time of the year, where food it’s just around the corner, and fatty food, so it’s time to make better choices and turn down bad food for me. And goes to keep it at with fitness too, to get moving and leave the couch!
  5. Love more of myself to love others more- The more you love you the more you love others! 
  6. Read more books– Principally the ones that teach your great values and about life.
  7. Worry less about stuff– Particularly the simple and small stuff that happens in life, just to go with the flow and focus more on the present.
  8. Head down to the beach– I live on an island (Dominican Republic) so that is pretty simple, but this year I wasn’t able to go, so for 2017 I am hoping to be there.

So that was my list for 2017, what’s yours? putting on a comment and share it!

Love,

Marina.

First Birchbox review!

Hello, my friends! Today I’m going to write my first Birchbox review, if you don’t know what Birchbox is let me explain, Birchbox is an online monthly subscription service that sends its subscribers a box of four to five selected samples of makeup, or other beauty related products. This is their web page Birchbox, so every month Birchbox lets subscribers pick between a curated box or a single sample choice and be surprised by the rest of the items. This review is for the Sample Choice, $10 a month.

So each box comes with a card that has a brief of the month’s theme. The December’s theme is Shine On! it’s all about “brilliant and festive products plus treats for on-the-go touch ups”

The flip card shows every product detailed. And this box included a sheet of gift tags!

This month’s box also bring a cute small pocket mirror. 20161219_145930

IPKN Flash Cream Radiant Primer/  Full -size, $28.

This nourishing SPF 15 primer creates a smooth, luminous canvas for makeup. The first thing I notice about this product when I tested was the shine that gives to your skin, and the smoothness that gives your face. I applied it on my face and then I massage it with my fingertips.

LOC One & Done Shadow Stick- Rock Steady/ Full- size, $10. 

This is a creaseless, waterproof shadow stick, this is the first shadow stick that I tried and I think that it fits perfectly for me I really liked it the color stands out very pretty. I applied it from the inner corner to the outer corner lid, and then gently smudge it along the way.

This is how it looks on, I’m just wearing the eye shadow stick. 2016-12-19-16-34-09

Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream/ Full- size, $88. 

This is face cream that promotes cell regeneration, soothes any skin type, (So it’s for every skin type!), reduces broken capillaries and makes skin radiant. The first thing you notice when you open the product it’s the smell of roses it smells fantastic, I haven’t had the time to catch any results for now just that my skin felt softer when I applied it.

And last but not least, Rene Furterer Lumicia Shampoo and Conditioner/ Shampoo full- size, $22/ Conditioner full- size, $24. 

Shampoo – This shampoo uses active plant ingredients like Acerola extract to lift daily residue for a soft. glossy finish.

Conditioner- The conditioner neutralizes hard water buildup on your strands’ cuticles for a weightless finish, while it moisturizes and adds lots of shine.

These were the only two products that I really didn’t enjoy that much, the sample sizes were too small for hair samples and it didn’t let me time appreciate the results on my hair.

So this December Birchbox is valued in $172, if you love to try new products and love makeup and beauty products I really recommend this box to you, I’ m going to keep trying it out and giving you a monthly review on the boxes. Hope you enjoyed this review and thanks so much for reading.

Love,

Marina.

Life update…

Hello friends,

There’s have been a couple of months that I don’t blog I am really sorry about that, these past months have been a little overwhelming and busy. right now I am sitting down taking the time to write to you and drinking tea and eating some snack at my new apartment! I recently moved with my boyfriend to a nice small house, we are very happy and enjoying our life together… it feels like a forever Saturday! =D
Right now we are currently looking for ways we can decorate our home, I thought about paint everything white like an empty canvas and then hanging some nice art on the walls, cute furniture and pretty much that. I’ll try to keep you posted and blog every day so I don’t lose the habit!

Love you guys,

Hi guys, today I’m sharing my ultimate go to clothing pieces and accessories, like when you have to run an errand and to need to go quick and change into comfy clothes. One of the clothing pieces that are really comfy and easy to wear is this T-shirt dress which I normally style with a pair of Sandals or these Chucks that I find that are the most easy and quick to put on! you don’t even have to tie the laces you just put them on and then you go. Also I wear a pair of shorts and a T-shirt which I prefer it to be a striped tee and a simple cross-body bag I love them brown and earth tone colors because they go with almost everything so finally the good old Sun protector to take care of your skin while you go and do your errands!

Skin Care Routine Day n´ Night

Skin Care Routine Day n´ Night

 

Hi guys today I´m sharing my top skin care products and the order of applying them, first in the morning I use a morning cleanser to clean my face from all of the bacteria that I got while sleeping and to have a clear face for applying makeup. Then I use my NARS toner to clarify and even my skin tone, after that I used a day cream for me  Clarins Multi active Day Cream works best because I always wake up looking tired and kind of like puffy hehehehe but these cream helps me to look awake. And last but not least Sunscreen always wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the UV rays even though you live in a country where there is almost no sun it´s always best to keep it save. Then there is my night time routine of course use a cleanser to remove makeup excess and to start fresh your night time routine I a toner as well you can use the same one you use in the morning that is what I do but if you can you can buy a night time toner. I used to have several acne spots on my face and I used to always do a spot treatment this one worked wonders with my face try it out and tell me how you did with it. And then apply a serum and to finish it up your night cream. Hope you guys like this post at the bottom I have the links to the products and if you have a different routine for day or night you can write me down on a comment.

Love, Marina.
