Long time without writing, but in the meantime I was reading and reading as usual a lot of blogs, and I must say I found some gems.
Eventhough the complete point of my blog is for you to feel related with someone real, with a normal life, an a normal budget, you still can find fairytale blogs that are amusing -and that is hardly to feel related with- which is the case of the thelondoner.me. Rose tells us her history a day to day life full of food and amazing vacations, that you can only dream with, yet her way to tell stories and show us around is very honest and not at all narcissistic. I found it completely loveable.
Then I was browsing to find blogs about makeup, favorite products, but I wanted something I can relate with, not just Channel and YSL all around so I found essiebutton.com which is pretty cool. In there you can find a makeup addict, that can perfectly combine both designer makeup with drugstores gems, this allowing me -and you- to relate with what she is using and to go and try it for yourself, plus she have amazing tutorials!
Yet one perk of living in Mexico is that most off the brands that are more common in US or Europe such as Bobbi Brown or MAC are pretty expensive in here. For example the other day I was looking a powder from MAC online store that costs 25 dollars which is around 330 pesos, perfectly affordable, yet when I went to the actual store here in Mexico, it was 550 pesos which is 200 pesos more than the actual price for the exact same product, similar goes around for all kind of makeup products specially designer ones that become a major purchase -don´t even make me start about the prices of makeup brushes-.
Therefore I must stick to drugstores products for the everyday life. I´m now preparing a post to show all of you the makeup I usually wear, so stay tune, in the mean time share with me do you think makeup (among other things) is more expensive in Mexico? Which products/brands do you like the most?
Tomorrow is friday yey!
Hi all happy weekend!
Today I`m having a lazy saturday, which was needed, after a stressing week.
I was searching for music in youtube since my playlist bored me, and found this cover of we found love (Rihanna) performed by 2 cellos a croatian duo. I have heard them before and love how they transform pop music into the most amazing classical music.
Yet this song completely blow me away and put a song in my face, is just lovely, please here it and let me know what you think, they have a lot more of covers that you will like so enjoy!
You know how I love bunnies, well they found love in this cut clip from Bambi. I love thumper is soo cute!
So as usual, I was checking some blogs -at work, yes big flaw- and found something call the birchbox, I have seen it before, but never really sure of what it was, and how did work. Have you heard of it? well this is the 101 of this.
The birchbox is a hand-picked beauty and lifestyle samples, delivered to your door for $10/month (dollars) + Birchboxes Ship Free! That means that each month you will get this box full of surprises, around 4 or 6 products will come in this box as samples of beauty products, with the purpose of making you want more than a sample size product. It sounds great right? who doesn´t like to open a box full of surprises, after all we are girls that love things that we don´t really need, cough. Yet this have a sad side for me, the birchbox is not delivered to Mexico!
Sooooo, after google all around I found the Fashion box!!!!, which is the Mexican version of the birchbox, with this you can try as well many beauty and lifestyle products. The price is 199 per month (pesos) plus free shipping, and if you register for more that one month it gets cheaper! This box contains 7 amazing products. Can you tell I´m super excited to try this box full of surprises I already ordered mine that it should get here on the first 10 days of April, therefore I will try it before becoming a regular suscriptor. In around one month, I will be posting what I received, and let you know if is as incredible as I imagine it will be.
You can order yours at: fashionbox.mx so let me know what do you think of this, will you order it? have you already tried?
Have a wonderful afternoon!
This video is amazing, was done in Spain, and I think it should be done in all countries over the world, to measure the reactions of childrens, and how they behave according to education and the country they are raised.
The video involves children and how they are innocent and share without any trouble.
They are left by their own, to start eating one of them have food, the other doesn´t……
Happy almost Friday to everyone!
