Recent Food Faves/Highlights!

I'm sharing with you some picture I took during the last month, of some new discoveries and some old habits!
Breakfast and Snacks:

Spring means two things for me: tulips and strawberries <3

Old habit: breakfast with oatmeal flakes, apple, yogurt and cinnamon


I've recently discovered this amaaazing salad, in a nice bistrot next to my University! It's a "tropical" salad with: chicken, carrots, corn and avocado! Yummm


Last weekend I was out for dinner with my family since I was my mum's birthday. Sushi: the best way to celebrate! On the right: grilled tuna with sesame!

What have you been loving recently?


Macadamia Natural Oil Shampoo and Mask REVIEW

[ITA] (to read the English version scroll down!)

Ciao a tutti, oggi vi racconto della mia esperienza con i prodotti Macadamia.
Come sarà successo a molti di voi, ne ho sentito parlare su YT. Quando al Cosmoprof mi sono trovata davanti al loro stand, spinta dalla curiosità... non ho potuto fare a meno di comprare qualcosa

Ho preso quindi shampoo maschera e olio.

Qui vi parlo in modo specifico di shampoo e maschera, che ho usato molto dalla seconda settimana di marzo fino ad oggi!

March Beauty Favourites

Here's a overview of all the products I'm going to write about!

-YSL lipstick "Rouge Volupté" in 02 Blond Sensuel

This month I've rediscovered NUDE LIPS! Since my skintone is extremely fair and it has a neutral/pink undertone, I've struggled finding the right nude lip color for me!
I wore this YSL lipstick  quite often at night, applying it first, directly from the stick, then blending it tapping it with my fingers. To avoid the terrible "dead" effect, I like to top it with a clear/slightly rose lipgloss!

Cooking Dinner: Soy Sauce Chicken

Il pollo è sicuramente un ingrediente base nella cucina di tutti i giorni per due principali ragioni: si presta a qualsiasi tipo di preparazione (è versatile) ed è velocissimo da cuocere.

Per stasera avevo un paio di fettine di petto, stanca della solita cottura alla piastra ho cercato in rete delle varianti più gustose ma comunque poco impegnative. 
Sono stata attirata per un attimo dalla preparazione in agrodolce (ricetta tipica della cucina cinese, che in genere richiede la carne di maiale) ma avrebbe richiesto troppo tempo e troppi ingredienti. Così ho ridotto al minimo il necessario per ottenere un gusto orientale.

Make up storage: Bedroom Edition

Hello Girls,
today I'll show you how I store make up in my room. 
At the beginning of my love story with make up, I tended to keep everything in the bathroom (I know it isn't the best place for storing make up but I didn't have a choice).
Even if my collection it's still pretty small, I haven't enough space in my bathroom now; that's why I started to move something to the bedroom. Firstly nail polished, then lip stuff!

I organized this area with some Ikea drawers.
Starting with the left side...

In the big bottom drawer I keep the most worn nail polishes, i.e. the ones that I've worn the most in the last six months.

I ♥ Spring TAG!

I love tag videos and blogposts, I saw Ingrid's (MissGlamorazzi) video first, then Fleur's video and I decided to write my post!

These are the questions, let's begin straight away!

1. Favorite spring nail polish?
For the third spring in a row the winner is... Chanel Nouvelle Vague. I know, I'm a boring nail polish person, but I can't help it. Perfect tiffany shade!

Today I'm wearing this pretty colour by Essence, 108 Ultimate Pink.

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?
I love brights but I don't feel very comfortable wearing them during daytime. That's why I've chosen this sheer hot pink lipstick from Kiko.

3. Show us your favorite spring dress!
I'm not in the spring mood yet since here in Milan it's still pretty wintery outside. Anyways, I'll show you my favourite dress from last spring! I got it for my sister's wedding.
