May Favourites

Hey beauties,

it is officially June.. I know, I can’t believe this either! Where did the first half of the year go? Anyway, since I have been on the way and crazy busy last month, I didn’t have the chance to blog more but I did get my hands on a couple of good stuff, so I decided to share with you.

Here are my favourites for May:

When I was back at home I got the new Grazia Bulgaria which came with a little Eye Cream – Golden Tears from Mastic SPA. I have read a lot of different reviews saying that this one isn’t the original product. Anyway I use it for the last two – three weeks, and I am pretty happy with it, so it is one of my favourites for May.

Hair Crystal Oil – Bio Pharma

The new – old favourite Argan Oil. I have used this product before and I really like it. I put it on my hair after shower and it makes it easy to comb and to manage, and of course last but not least it smells amazing.

Sleek Make Up Matte Me

This is my super extra favourite product for the last month. I have seen this all over Instagram and I was curious to try it out. I got Sleek Make Up Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream during my stay in Malta. The shade I chose is Bitter Sweet but I would love to try all of them as well as the eyeshadow palettes.

Liz Earle Nourishing Botanical Body Cream

Liz Earle is a British cosmetics brand, they have a huge range of body, hair and make up products. Good quality and the packaging is nice. This body lotion hydrates and soothes the skin, it also smells very good.

Schwarzkopf Got2B Straightening Spray

I got this hair spray by Schwarzkopf a long time ago but I started using it a little bit more often lately. It is for heat protection and it helps you to keep your hair straight for a little bit longer. I really like it because it makes my hair thicker and it looks stronger.

Book Sometimes I lie – Alice Feeney

I got this book Sometimes I Lie from the airport in Malta. I really like it so far and I am still reading it. It tells the story of a woman who is in a coma. To be honest it got me because of the cover and the tittle 🙂 Well.. I guess we all lie sometimes…

P.S:  Have you tried some of those products? Share with me your current favourites, I would love to try them out!

#GIRLBOSS Book Review

“#Girlboss is more than a book… #Girlboss is a movement”

Lena Dunham

#Girlboss tells the story of Sophia Amoruso – founder and CEO of one of the most popular brands Nasty Gal. Definitely it is NOT just a random biography book.. it is way more than that! Sophia wasn`t one of the coolest girls at school, wasn’t popular, wasn’t teachers` favorite one.

Later she was fired a lot and just couldn’t find her place. I guess a lot of us are still wondering where are they going and what they want to do.. So if you don’t fit in and you are not exactly like everyone else, don’t worry you will find your way just don’t compare to others. After a lot of struggles with different jobs she started to sell clothes online on ebay..

And a couple of years later she created her own empire. Now Nasty Gal is a lot of girls favorite online shop, representing something different, something they can`t find nowhere else. Nasty Gal makes all her clients feel special and unique from the very beginning. In her book Sophia gives a lot of advices and shares her own experience.. and it is inspiring and empowering.

I read the book just in three days and totally love it! So if you are #Girlboss or you need an extra inspiration you can find something for you in her story.. Either you are in a good place right now and you got everything you want or you don’t like where you are and still dreaming for a change, #Girlboss will make you think on yourself, your dreams and your life!

So #girlbosses, I am sharing with you my favorite quote from the book:

“One thing you should know about me is when I hear NO, I rarely listen..”

So everytime someone is trying to say you can`t do this or that, don’t listen! Dare to dream BIIIIIG!

 

Xoxo,

Gabrielle
