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”

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,
