Goodbye Seven Sisters and Hello Streatham Hill

For the last nine months I've been living in Seven Sister (North-East London) with some family members of mine. It got to a point that because of my job that if I lost my last train home it would probably take me like 2 hours to go home by bus, maybe two or three of them even and I didn't fancy that. So afters looking for a place for a few months I finally found a bedroom. I'm now living in the South and the good thing about this area is that if I do miss the train, I have a bus that go straight to my area. It has been a week since I've moved in and most of the unpacking is done. Things have been slow due to a lack of free time, so I do things bit by bit. But so far I'm enjoying living there, let's see when the rest of the house mates move in, it will still be fun.


Musical Friday #138

EN: Hello Hello! And Hello June!
I'm back with another Musical Friday. I admit that lately I haven't been paying too much attention to what's new or not, I've been stuck listing to my oldies and getting a bit nostalgic. But let's get updated shall we?
Summer is just around the corner (maybe not for the U.K., although today is actually quite sunny and warm), to you have a Summer Hit song selected already? That song that will make you remember a certain time or party?
On yeah and by the way are you ready for the World Cup in Brazil? Who do you think is going to win this year?

I'm still here!

EN: Hello my lovely Bananas!
It has been a month since I last posted anything over here. To tell you the truth I had some highs but also some very low lows.
2014 is not my year. In a space of four moths there were six deaths - five of them were family members - so hopefully you will understand if my head is a bit all over the place.
For two weeks I had a tablet, a Windows Surface RT, I thought that it would help me with my Blogging but no, I ended up returning it. Internet explorer was freaking slow and was always crashing when I watched Youtube videos and I wasn't able to install other browsers like, Firefox or Google Chrome. The good thing about it is that I could connect my external drives to it. I'm just not a tablet kind of girl, I need a Laptop or a Desktop computer, I multi-task when I'm on the computer so I need one that can handle that.
All of this just to let you know that I'm still here, a bit offline these days but hopefully better days will come my way.xoxo

Early Birthday Gift - M.A.C. - Part 2


EN: A couple of weeks ago I showed you a picture of a M.A.C. bag, which was my early birthday gift from me to myself. So this is what I bought, a M.A.C. lipstick in "Spice It Up!" with a Lustre finish and a lip pencil in "Mahogany".
Back in 2009 I went for the first time to a M.A.C. in Portugal and the man who worked there ended up doing my makeup for free and he gave me some free samples. One of them being a lipstick which was my favourite colour ever. Somehow during the Christmas of 2009, travelling from London to Portugal and vice-versa I lost it :( and I had no idea the name of it I could only remember the colour but since M.A.C. stuff is expensive I've been on a hunt for years for something similar. I did find something close I suppose from Sleek Makeup a Pout Paint but after you apply it it dries and it fades pretty quickly.
Anyways, one day after work I went to M.A.C. and I asked the girl that work there for help to find a nice cherry colour that I could easily wear it everyday. She first applied one that was a bit too dark - that I might buy it later on - but then she applied the Spice It Up and OMG I kid you not the smile on my face of like "I FINALLY FOUND YOU!".
So I ended up buying the lipstick and the lip pencil. I will wear the lipstick on it's own most days but if I need a bit more definition or to make it a bit darker I will use the lip pencil. And so my M.A.C. obsession as begun haha.
What is your favourite M.A.C. product?
