Evening Beauty Routine

Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal line: (left) mask cream, (right) eye cream, (below) hydrating 24H cream

This post is about my  so-called evening beauty routine. I stress, these steps and products work perfect for me but someone else may find other actions/products (also from other brands) more suitable. It makes perfect sense. Personally I have been using Yves Rocher products for almost a year and a half and I find my skin flawless, moisturized plus very smooth. My choice is the Hydra Végétal line, as it is the right one for my skin type, normal to combined. The main feature of the line is that it moisturizes my skin without making it too shiny or oily. The products contain particles that capture moisture in order to naturally pamper your skin cells.
So besides the golden rule, getting rid of your make up before going to bed, there is a whole after process to it, but essentially yeah you would need to start from that.

First of all if I have been wearing make up during the day, cleaning starts with pouring water on my face, not too cold, not too hot, as water temperature is key. Then I start washing it with soap. This way I can instantly take off most of the make up.

Combo Today

Well I am a bit in a hurry, but I really wanted to share my combo tips today. So, yeah, here we are again in the “fashion to utility” corner of my blog. Exactly, to me being comfortable is the very essential of being stylish or fashionable.

Try to always choose functional items for your outfit, even when it comes to accessories if they serve a purpose even better, otherwise you risk making it look heavy and Christmas Tree look like, not really a good choice, considering that it’s still summer and everything.

So a nice quiet afternoon out? Here we go:

Glitter black sneakers Cult or I love them, what about you? Or a pair of leather boot sandals LiuJo.

Shopping Strategies


Lots of us like to shop… clothes…Where are my girls?? (I am not discriminating, boys no offense meant :D)

As for me, I love shopping, I don’t mind second-hand shops either. In fact, these are the places where you can find cute, original, authentic stuff in very good condition and for a very good price. I’d love a pair of SMC platform brogues! (I can’t afford them, the mere presence of the shoes, no matter how divine they look, is not going to pay my monthly bills :p )

That’s why we need strategy and some tips wouldn’t harm. So, first question:

Shopping alone or accompanied?
