July favourites - what I am enjoying at the moment

Hello everybody!

Today I'm going to do a "favourites" post! As I quite like months favourites posts/vid, I decided to do my own one! So here we go!

First thing I've been loving is this Essence bronzer in "blondes" shade, which is perfect for light skin (there's another shade available - "brunettes" one - which is perfect for medium skin, but I think it won't work for darker skins 'cause it's so "light" it'll probably disappear!) It is a matt orangy light bronzer that works really good for a light contouring and to give the perfect bit of colour your skin needs to seem more healthy and kissed by the sun! 

(as you can see it's quite light colour, but it looks beautiful on skin! I just thought it would be the perfect really cheaper solution for those who can't afford the Chanel - les beige one!)

Second item is one of my beloved The Body Shop body butter and it's the papaya one! Soooooooo gooooood and smells amazing!! Like juice! You relly should try it and probably need it if you have dry skin like mine.. absolutely amazing; gives you a 24hrs hydration and I can agree with that!
So why are you still here? Go out and buy it.. of course after reaching the end of this post! :p

Again from The Body Shop, from the tea tree collection, here's the flawless BB cream! I was just looking for a bb cream for summer and found this in store so I thought I would give it a go.. and I'm so happy I bought it! The finish is lovely, it uniforms your skin so good and the tea tree smells so good (don't worry, the smell will disappear in few mins after applying eheh) while is also great for medicating spotted or oily skins (I don't have oily skin and it works great with me too) It's like a mosturizer and it totally doesn't let you feel like you're wearing skin coverage. It's also great for make up base if you want to wear more make up :)

(I have shade 01, but it's available in 01, 02 and 03!)

For concealing I've been loving the Maybelline super stay 24hrs one which I could put in a "empties tag" post :) love the coverage and lasts really long! Great!

And now let's talk about the item I'm in love with! <3
The Hot Mama blusher from The Balm! Yay! I've been looking for this one for ages and now here it is.. I LOOOOOOVE IT! You can use it as blusher or eyeshadow and looks really pretty! I think it's just like the NARS orgasm blusher (which I looooove) and the packaging is super cute inspired by the 50's pin ups! Can't tell you how much I love it.. simply go, try on and you'll understand!

The last one is not a make-up item, but stort of a make-up related! It's the Colgate max white one optic, which almost everyone is talking about! It works? It's a yay or nay? For me it's a super YAY, of course.. as I've been loving it and using it everyday since a month! :) It's not kind of magic, of course, and it doesn't place a professional teeth whitening session, but it helps a lot and gives a great optical effect of whiter teeth, that's because of the blue parts in it which creates a sort of contrast that let the teeth look more white! Nothing new as there are many whitening toothpastes like that and as almost everyone knows that cool colours help let the teeth look whiter (so is for a cool lipstick, instead of an orangy one that will let appear your teeth a bit more yellowy)!
But as I think this works so good and I really enyoy its taste, I've been loving it! Always remember to wash your teeth and why not adding to your make up bag a blue lipgloss?! It will help your teeth look more white in contrast with your lips in a second! :)

So here we are! I hope you enjoyed it and let me know in the comments if you have tried any of this stuff, what do you think of them and of course I can't wait to know what have you been loving recently!
See you soon!!

Mini boohoo haul and impressions:

Hello everybody! 

Today something came in my P.O. box! Yay! My very first order from Boohoo! Do you already know this site? Did you ever placed a order? I knew it since so long but I don't know why I have never placed a order before.. The other week I saw the sales and I told myself: okay, this is the best way to try it! So I did and came with this two adorable items! :) 

First of all I'm gonna say that I live in Italy, so I the parcel came in like 5/6 days, not that bad for post parcels! I am so afraid of postal packages cause the postal service here in Italy is not that good, once a parcel went lost and I had to ask refund and send so many mails to the costumers service buuut this is another story.. Soo, as I already said, the package travels through post and is a tracking post type which is cool, cause you can see where the parcel is like everyday. I was so happy when my package came cause I was especting it to take looonger as I once ordered from uk by post and the parcel arrived in like 20 days; I was about to ask for a refund and so anxious... Just awful!! But here it is, my cuuute package from Boohoo!! Yaay!

I bought a lovely dress with a crochet collar and soft fabric in navy blue with white pois.. I just felt in love with it, love at first sight means only one thing: ADD TO THE BASKET! 

And the second item is a bowler hat which I always been looking for.. I once saw one cute bowler hat, similar to this, at H&M but it was available only in L and it was way too big for my little peahead.. So I have been looking for it for ages and now I finally found one! :D It is so soft and light weight and even if its a one sized one, it fits me well! So I really enjoyed it! And oh, it's in black, of course! Love it! Also loved how it came, boohoo was so serious and lovely in packing cause they put the hat in a cardboard box so it won't be pressed or something; so nice from you Boohoo, your packages rocks! 

(Sorry the black one is out of stock, but you can still find it in grey and burgundy!)

And here we are! :) I just loved boohoo and I can't wait to buy more! Items feels true to size and to lenght and the images in the site are 100% real, I mean, I wasn't disappointed by the images; the items came exactly as they are showed in the site! :) I recommend this site soo much and if you can, go check out cause they have 60% sale off!! I can't wait to buy more and see other stuff, also see if the items wear out soon or not.. But for the prices they have, is very good site indeed! You can't expect a great quality, I can tell that the quality looks like the one of Forever21, not that good, not that bad, but it worths every penny! 

Hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments if you would like to see more of this posts, or if you want to see the clothes tried on. Have you ever placed a order from Boohoo? What did you buy? Impressions? Can't wait to hear from you! Byeee
