Write on my Shopping-List

February 20, 2013 § 8 Comments

Hello, sweeties!

I am in the middle of my winter exams, as you know. I can gladly announce that I’ve done two of them (still can’t believe it) and that there’s only one to go. But it’s the worst one, so I am fully depressed and scared that I won’t make it. T____T

Anyway, I placed my book order Feb. 2nd and my package arrived this Monday, with a week delay. The waiting was extremely painful, hehe. The books look all shiny and perfect and I picked “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Steven Chbosky to read first. Maybe I’ll have time just this evening to start with the first pages. *crosses fingers*

But, let’s cut to the chase.

The real reason I’m writing it’s because, hopefully, if everything goes right (read “if I pass my exam with success“), I am going to Rome the first Saturday of March and I intend to go crazy shopping. LOL
Yes, sometimes you just need that.

I’m going to have a tour at MAC, Sephora and Lush (maybe H&M and something else too). I already have a few things to buy, but I want your help.

MAC must-haves?
At the moment I only own an eyeshadow brush (#213) by MAC (and literally nothing else) and I’m planning to buy the White Face & Body Foundation which I’ve wanted for ages. I have a crush on Barely Study paint pot, so I may get that one too, but..any other good must-have products?

What about Sephora?
I wanted to get the Urban Decay Naked 2 or the Naked Basics palette, but I’m not sure I will. I was think about a nice primer potion by UD, maybe something similar to the color of Bare Study so that I won’t have to get it by MAC (and I’m sure it’ll be sold out as usual, just like every time I go to Rome to buy it! XD). Any other suggestions?

And finally, must have items by Lush?
I have a super long shopping list of Lush products I wrote every time some beauty guru would talk about them, but I also have tons of unopened skin care products, so unless it’s really an awesome product, I’m going to skip it. Anyway, I’m still very open to suggestions!

I trust you’ll fill my comment section and make me go broke! haha
Talk to you soon.

Stay beautiful.

Books&Winter Exams Session

January 24, 2013 § 9 Comments

Hello, everyone!
Just a quick post, some few words and a request for advice!

My winter exams will start in any way now (officially from Jan. 28th to Mar. 1st) and I have three exams to take. Can’t wait to finish, can’t lie! 😛 Then, I’ll be just three exams to go before my thesis! Super-excited!!!
Unfortunately, this winter session will take me more than last year because two of those exams are lab courses so I have to write reviews, study the theory and work on my PowerPoint ppt. Because of that, I am afraid I won’t be able to post my usual two posts a week and maybe I will post none during this month. 😦

I hope you’ll understand and that you’ll stick with me anyhow. I’ll be reading your blogs, of course and we’ll stay in touch by comments, though! 🙂
Never say never, anyway! I’ll be taking pictures of makeup anyway and, maybe, if one day I have the right time I’ll write reviews/beauty posts.
Follow me on Instagram and Twitter if you don’t want to miss me! ❤

Concerning my “advice request“, I am planning to place a book order (online) soon and I’d like to read some nice novels. I stopped reading years ago and one of my New Year’s Resolution is to start reading again, at least two times a week. Plus, I have to take the TOEFL during this Summer and I’m sure that some more English wouldn’t hurt!

I have a pretty open mind about books, so suggest anything you like! The only thing I can’t go with is a difficult (or too classical) English (like Joyce, for instance :P) because, as you know, English is not my first language and I have to be able to follow the story without having to look for words in every sentence!
I’m pretty much interested in new book, also!

At the moment, on my wish list I have:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower (S. Chbosky)
The Happiness Project (G. Rubin)
The Help (K. Stockett)
The Casual Vacancy (J.K. Rowling)

So, please, feel free to post thousands of comments with your suggestions!

I’ll talk to you soon! Wish me luck!
Stay beautiful.
