Harry Potter TAG!


Hi Darlings,

Today when I’m writing this post is the 16th anniversary of the first Harry Potter debuting in Italian’s teather! So what a better occasion to do this tag?!

As you may or may not know I’m a HUGE Harry Potter nerd, I’m always watching it and I’ve been wanting to do this tag for a few months actually, so the other day when I stumble upon The Perfect Honeybee’s TAG I know I had to do it.

She didn’t TAG me, as a matter of fact no one did, but I decided to do it anyway cause I loved the questions so much and of course I had to do it with the whole gang since we are all super FANS so Julia, Claire and Queen are going to join me to do this which obviously makes me so happy!

If you see this tag and you want to do it, you can say we tagged you, we want to read all your answers and share the love for this saga so please, do it!

5+1 Beauty Websites You NEED to Know

5 websites you need to know

Hi Darlings,

I’m super excited for today’s post… Actually, because I can’t wait to tell you all the 5 Websites I found that ship worldwide or almost to give us European Beauty lovers the chance to try more products.

As you may or my not know I live in Italy but I’m very VERY into English and American bloggers, so MOST of the times when they talk about a brand they can EASILY find at the drugstore or at SEPHORA for me it’s actually a STRUGGLE to get hold of it.

Sometimes I can’t even get stuff online! Don’t get me wrong, honestly it got so much better and now we stock so many more brands but I remember when I started I had to order the PRIMER POTION on ebay!

So obviously now it got way better and our Sephoras are getting bigger and bigger but I know that a lot of European countries don’t have Sephoras so I thought that I could share with you all the sites that brought American (or overall harder to find here) Drugstore and High End Products to us.

Is there something that you are going to order? Let me know in the comments!

Blue Smokey Eyes #MakeupMonday

Blue Smokey Eyes Kim Kardashian Inspired [Click to read more]

Hi Darlings,

For today’s #MakeupMonday I really wanted to incorporate some colour in a smokey look which I usually never do and I had not one, not four, but THREE different inspirations.

A few months ago I saw a photo scrolling on instagram, I’m pretty sure it was over the Summer but I can’t remember at all who was the author of the look or anything else apart from the look  (if you know who did it let me know so I can tag her) it had a really intense blue on the lid and a warm brown in the crease that I tought was so interesting.

Second inspiration was a look that Kim Kardashian did ages ago that I stumble upon the other day and lastly I had this gorgeous blue in the Urban Decay Palette I used that I was DYING to play with but never had: so I thought, what a better occasion to play with it than this?

Overall I’m really happy for how the look turned out and as always it’s super easy the key is to blend, blend, blend.

L’Oréal Paradise Extatic | Review

L'Oreal Lash Paradise Review (3)

Hi Darlings,

I’m pretty sure that even if you have been living under a rock you know how almost everyone loves the L’Orèal Lash Paradise Mascara that came out a few months ago. I know the title says Paradise Extatic because I’m pretty sure that’s the European name (correct me if I’m wrong) but it’s the Lash Paradise, they are the same product.

Being the beauty addict that I am, I’ve been impatiently waiting for it to came out in Europe as well, so when I saw the advertising on TV I went out and bought it the same day!

After testing it for about 3 weeks (it takes me forever to built an opinion on mascaras because at first I always love all of them) I’m finally ready to tell you all the pros and cons about the beauty bloggers favourite L’Oréal Paradise Extatic Mascara!

5 Drugstore Essentials

Drugstore essencials (1).jpg

Hi Darlings,

Today I want to share with you some my 5 Drugstore Essentials.

We all tent to get lost into a field of new products and feel the need to try the new things that are always coming out, am I right?

Well, with today’s post I tought I’d tell all you all the products that no matter what I’ll always repurchase and more important if a new product comes out in one of these cathegories I’m more than happy to try it.

I don’t know if I’m making any sense, but what I’m trying to say is: I get really excited when Maybelline comes out with new shades of the Colour Sensational Lipsticks because I know that they are really good and I’m more inclined to try them.

Another thing I want to add is that whenever I’m buying products for someone these are always the one that I go for. I show you two L’Oréal foundations because both my mum and I use it. Same with the mascaras: my sister Queen, my mum and I all use Essence’s mascaras on a daily bases.

Frosted Cranberry #MakeupMonday

Cool toned smokey eye with a pop of red using the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette [Click to read more]

Hi Darlings,

I have been planning this look in my head for so long and I’m so pleased for the way it turned out. I’m feeling myself in it and since I’ve been quite anxious lately feeling myself is a huge step.

For today’s #MakeupMonday I brought to you a cool toned look, for once, am I the only one who is getting tired of warm tones? But I decided to add a pop of red, that you can totally skip if you don’t like it, just to make it more interesting: it totally remindes me of a snow covered cranberry, am I right?

I used to do this look all the time when I was in high school using MAC Satin Taupe and Naked Lunch so if you have those you can totally replicate the OG of this make up.

Halloween Last Minute | Dead Me

How To Look Dead Zombie Make Up [Click To See How I Got This Look]

Hi Darlings,

We are at the end of Halloween month: to be honest I had a blast creating all the make up looks and of course #Halloweek but for today’s post I want to share with you the BEST LAST MINUTE costume idea.

Picture this: you were planning on spending the 31st at home watching scary movies and eating sweets, then suddenly your bff asks you to go to a party and you don’t have a costume (you were planning to stay in your PJ’s, afterall) so what better idea to turn yourself into the DEAD VERSION OF YOURSELF?!

A few years ago, that actually happened to me: after school some of my friends and I decided to go out for Halloween really spontanously: I was wearing the make up that I had on the whole day but legit with a few products I turned into a ZOMBIE ME: it was creepy, it was quick, it was easy and it was so much fun!

2013 Mimi can prove it! Gotta love that bathroom crappy light selfie XD

PS: a special thanks goes to my sista Julia who was her “dead self” last year as she said in our Fall TAG who totally reminded me about it.
