365 Days Perfect Nails

If you’ve followed and read my blog, then you definitely know that I’m a sucker for nail polishes. I love taking care of my nails and I like them always looking sleek.

CHECK OUT: MY NAIL RECOVERY JOURNEY

During the Spring and Summer I tend to step away from my beloved burgundy and deep red, which are my go-to choices for the colder seasons, and pick more lively colors like white, light pink, orange, purple, light blue and mint.

There are different brands that I like and that I’ve discovered with time.
To me a nail polishes have to be smooth, have a good coverage, be shiny and don’t chip easily.

My favourite brands and colors are:

Creativity on-the-go: My Brasil Vacation

This year my grandma turned 80 and for this special occasion me and my mom decided to travel across continents and the ocean to go and visit her and our family in Brasil.

My Brazilian heritage is very important to me and I always say that I’m way closer to that side of me rather than to the Italian one. I love Italy and I consider it one of the most stunning countries on earth, but Brasil definitely holds a big part of my heart.
The people, the culture, the music, the food, the places, the art.. I love absolutely everything about it.

While in Brasil I tried to paint, doodle and draw as much as I could – I also had to study but that didn’t go as well as the rest.

My Summer Minimal Makeup

It’s been a while since I started using these Trust Fund Beauty* products and I was immediately impressed by their colors, pigmentation and beauty.

I waited for a long time to write this post because first, Spring really didn’t wanna show up here in Italy and second, I’ve been in Brazil for 3 amazing weeks.

These products have been a big part of my Spring/Summer makeup, which is very minimal; in fact, when it’s so hot I don’t like to wear a ton of makeup – honestly I never do, but even more so during these seasons.

Confessions in an Old English style

Saying I’ve been absent is one huge understatement, but I’m sorry (not sorry) to tell you that probably I’ll vanish into the thin air again and I’ll keep doing that.
Life goes on, priorities change and my ability to multitask has seriously gotten worse with time.
I graduated, started a new university, done exams, went to a beautiful vacation to Brazil with my mom (do not worry, a post telling you everything about it won’t delay), and procrastinated very much.
I won’t tell you I’ll be consistent from now on, but I will tell you that I’ll write about the things I like, as always, when I’ll find them and I’ll think you’ll like them too; because that’s what blogging is for me.
No rush, no expectation, no comparison to other amazing blogs and bloggers – no need for even more anxiety, am I right?

Now that the “confessions” part has been dealt with, how about the Old English style?

My Ban.Do Planner Review & Flip-Through

This year something unbelievable has happened: I got a planner in January, and not mid-year like I usually do because I’m a lazy panda and beautiful agendas cost way too much.

I’ve always wanted a Ban.Do planner but on their website the shipping cost was higher than the price of the item itself, but in late December I was looking through Asos and noticed that they had Ban.Do planners, and that they were discounted! So of course I jumped at the occasion and bought one.

Valentine’s Day (Or Any Other Day Of The Year) Gift Guide!

Either you consider Valentine’s Day as a beautiful day or as a holiday invented by companies to make more money, it’s a reality and it’s an opportunity to celebrate love in every form.

On Valentine’s Day, every year, my father buys me flowers, which it’s the cutest thing ever, right? I think as Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to tell the people in your life that you love them, no need to be in a relationship.

So, since this day is all about couples, I thought I’d take advantage and make a gift guide.. for singles; because we deserve to be loved, to love ourselves and to buy nice stuff just because we deserve it. This is a last minute gift guide or just a gift guide for every other day of the year, because you don’t really need a special day to buy presents for yourself and your love ones, am I right?

Once again I’m partnering up with one of my favorite brand, Uncommon Goods. If you haven’t read my previous post featuring this brand, here’s why I love it this much: Uncommon Goods 12 years ago started the Better To Give program, with which for every purchase they donate $1 to the charity of your choice; they also offer a platform to amazing designers & artisans and encourage the creation of products made with recycled materials.
