MY FAVORITE TV SERIES! ♕

Image
I've always been a huge lover of films and TV shows. Whenever I feel down, there's always my computer awaiting for me on the desk and whispering "Come here, come on, turn me on". And there's no way I could refuse, right? So, today I am going to talk about my top four TV series!

1 - GAME OF THRONES


I was introduced to this incredible series by a friend of mine, and I am so glad! I am currently watching season 2 and I can't wait to continue watching it! It's so entertaining and I feel like one of the characters. So far, my favorite ones are Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys, Jon Snow (such a cool guy), Arya (I like her strong personality), Bran, Sansa and Robb Stark (another handsome man). The ones that I just cannot stand are Cersei, Theon Greyjoy, and Joffrey (he is wicked and perverse!). If you don't know the plot, well, basically there are different storylines (all linked), set in a world called Westeros, where seasons can last years. They are stories abou…

HOW TO WHITEN YOUR SKIN ✦

Image
A lot of people love tanning in the sun in order to get a bronzed look. However, there are some people who are literally afraid of the sun and who don't want to get a tan. I belong to the second group. My skin is not fair tough, it's medium - dark. And, well, I hate it. Asian people usually prefer having a snowy, white complexion, and they would do anything for it! When it's too hot outside they don't step out and, when they do, they either wear hats or carry an umbrella.  I searched different ways to whiten up my skin, and finally I found two effective methods that I am gonna share with you!
1 - LEMON JUICE



Lemons are antibacterial and they have the incredible power to clear and lighten the skin! All you have to do is to dilute the acid with water and apply it on your skin as a toner. Don't use it more than twice a week tough, especially if you have sensitive skin (and use it only at night)! Lemon juice can be very aggressive.  If you want to go that extra mile, y…

ALL THE BENEFITS OF ALOE VERA ♥

Image
Aloe vera gel is one of the most amazing natural products ever! I don't think I would be able to live on without it. But, what's so special about it? Today I'm gonna talk about all its miraculous properties, how to use it, and why you should love it.

1 - POST-EPILATION TREATMENT
Have you ever experienced redness and irritation after removing the hair? If the answer is positive, there's something that you will definitely want. Yes, it's aloe vera gel. I use it after every epilation on the red areas, and the next day the redness is gone! Also, the gel leaves a fresh sensation on my skin!

2 - BURNS
Aloe helps heal burns, whether they are caused by the sun or by the iron. It soothes and repairs your damaged skin, and its effect is just magical! I always bring it with me when I go to swim (actually, I bring it everywhere). It has the incredible power to cicatrize small wounds too!

3 - LENITIVE CREAM
You can use aloe as a cream as well, since it has hydrating properties. Al…

Labello Lip Butter Review!

Image
I am obsessed with lip butters. They keep my lips moisturized, leaving them soft and with a nice and irresistible scent!
I am currently loving the Labello lip butter, that smells like vanilla! It's a fantastic and inexpensive product that I can carry around with me in the bag and I can apply it whenever I want. The consistency is creamy and it is not greasy at all. Sometimes, I like to apply the butter on my under-eye area in order to minimize my dark circles.
Gosh, I cannot find any flaw! Wanna kissable lips? Well, what are you waiting for?



Price: 4 €
Pro: Moistuzing, a smell you could die for. Inexpensive.
Con: None
Rating: 9/10

Do you like lip butters or do you prefer lip products in a tube?

All you need to know about STROBING ✓

Image
If you are reading this, you are probably wondering "what the hell is STROBING?". It has been on everyone's lips lately! Don't worry, I'll clear all your doubts.





Basically, strobing (that is, "stroboscopic effect") is a new technique - or a new contouring, if you prefer - that changes and enhances your features. The truth is that strobing is not something new, because it has always existed. It's just a fancy word for HIGHLIGHTING. I think it is perfect for summer, since it reflects the light and it brings out your inner beauty!! Your complexion will look glowy and dewy, like that of an angel.
So, how can you achieve such an angelic look? All you need is a good highlighter! My favorites are these ones:




If you don't like highlighters, you can use white and pearly eyeshadows instead. They are wonderful and they work very well! Just make sure to blend everything properly.
Some recommendations:





Next step: where should you apply it? I made a face char…

WEN ZHOU: MY TRAVEL DIARY ✧

Image
Hi beauties,
I spent this last and incredible month in Wen Zhou, China. This is the reason why I couldn't write anything on this blog, and I am terribly sorry. I left out of the blue, without even having the time to plan something beforehand. What I decided to do today is to bring you with me through all the memories and all the moments I experienced in these days! So, sit back, relax and enjoy it!
(Most of the photos are taken with an Iphone)

{ DAY ONE } When I first set my foot in Wen Zhou, my first thought was "Why am I in such a dirty and polluted city?". The atmosphere was completely different from the one I was accustomed to, that is the atmosphere of Turin. If you go there, you can immediately tell that the air is super unhealthy! There are so many skyscrapers, cars, and stores! Also, the taxi network is pretty big: almost everyone takes taxis, since they are inexpensive. Another thing I noticed straight away, was the fact that a lot of people carried an umbrella,…
