For the first time in my damn life I've finished a whole bottle of perfume. Yep. I used up every single drop of my Chanel Chance. I wanted to try a new one but I have this crazy thing with smells, so it's hard for me to make a decision and it took me a while to find another perfume that I like on me. Eventually I got this one -- Coco Mademoiselle. It’s also Chanel, of course— because I always love anything Chanel. And it’s waaay more expensive than my old perfume. WAY more. But I got it anyway. It has a more mature smell, I’d say. It’s a little bit sweeter, a bit more intense. It has some sort of oriental and exotic feeling about it. More sensual. I like it. I really like it.

REVIEW | FLORMAR Terracotta Blush-On

Ok. First things first -- Flormar, is awesome OK? Since that day that I walked in there to buy an eyeliner and walked out with a bag full of stuff, I went back there twice. And both times I got a bunch of gorgeous stuff, that I’m like absolutely loving.  
One of those things, was this beautify marbled blush. Just look at it — how gorgeous is it?! The beautiful hot pink, with this warm golden veins! Stunning!

This is the Terracotta Blush-On in shade 44 Pink Bronze. And what more can I say? It’s really pigmented but you can buff it out really easily. I really like it because it kind of gives me that “I’m blushed because I just spent all the afternoon at the beach” kind of look. And it depends of where in the pan you pick of your product -- I often just swirl my brush around to get a bit of everything, but you can defiantly pick up product closer to the golden veins to get a more bronzy blush. It is very shimmery and highlighting too, so it also adds a nice glow to the cheeks. 

This has been my go-to blush ever since I got it. The one and only thing I have to point out it the packaging. I mean, this blush is so stunning but than it comes in a cheap black plastic container thingy... Meh.

My Life | The Soap Opera is back

You know when I told you that my life feels like a soap opera? Well, Season 02 has just started! This time, I am dating a guy who’s mom is famous -- like, really really famous. 
We met trough some friends in common. We hanged out one night, at a club with those friends and the next morning when I woke I had a text from him inviting me for a coffee. Let me state that at this point I had not idea about who he is.

So that night we went out to a super nice bar, with an awesome view of the bridge and the Tagus river. A super cool place, that I'd never heard of before. And there we were talking, and drinking when a hot famous Portuguese TV actor approached us and started to talk to him. I was like “oh he knows this dude, oh”.... He even introduced me to the guy, naturally, and, yeah, naturally there I was trying not to say or do anything stupid, just awkwardly drinking my gin’n’tonic through a straw, while they talked about random life stuff. I mean, I know that famous people are pretty much normal people with normal lives, but you know, I was not ready for that! After the other guy left, I asked how he knew him, and he told me who his mommy was.

We went out a couple of times after that. But nothing has happened between us yet. Not because he hasn’t tried. Trust me, he has. He tried to kiss me, he tried to hold my hand... But I don’t know. This is a stupid thought but the last thing I want Is a picture of us making out at some club to show up on a magazine.

The other day he invited me to have dinner in his place. With his father and brothers. I thought it was too soon, but I said yes. And honestly I was kind of excited to go. BUT as I was getting ready to leave the office — I had my computer packed already and everything! — my boss called me with an emergency. And I had to work. I had to make a bunch of Skype calls and solve some problems. And I had to skip our date. Since I was in a conference call it was virtually impossible to keep him updated so yeah now he is completely mad at me... and I don’t blame him. He was waiting for me and I bailed on him. That day, I was so exhausted and frustrated that I cried all the way home. And since I'm bad at feelings, I sent him a text saying that I really like him but I don’t have time for dating. I don’t know why I did this, because I do want to date him.

Quick tip #8 | Stippling Brush

I never thought I'd say this but I've been applying my foundation with a brush -- instead of my Beauty Blender -- and I actually like it better this way. I feel like I can blend it better into my hair line and neck. It gives me less coverage but honestly I don't mind that. I'm still able to cover some  my yucky spots but I don't look super one toned, flat-faced. 

-- Please be nice and supportive and click on at least one of the pictures! I'd do the same for you. Thank you! --

EAT | Delidelux, Lison

Last Saturday, me and The Girl In Clouds met up over a cup of tea. We went to Delidelux, an absolutely lovely place, on one of the most expensive streets of Lisbon, Avenida da Liberdade.
The space is small, but elegant and beautiful. Everything is very clean, minimalist and modern. We had a really hard time choosing what to order, because every item on the menu sounded divine, but we both ended up asking for bagels. I went for the classic smoked salmon and cream cheese filling, and she had butter and jam. We both had tea, because there's nothing better than an nice hot cup of tea on a winter day.

Now, I really want to go back there for brunch. I really want to try their Eggs Benedict!

Kitchen Makeup Boutique

If there's one makeup store that just sucks all my money away, is this one -- Kitchen Makeup Boutique. It's not common anymore to have like small makeup stores. People always go to big chains. But I love the girls that work there -- they are always so nice and so helpful! And the space is just stunning! They don't have a shit tone of stuff, but the products they sell are always amazing and super high quality! I got both of my Zoeva pallets from here, and now I went back to get something more! Curious?
