Let’s start on a positive note. This month has been hell. I hated it.
I have basically posted no content here on my blog, I haven’t been reading, I haven’t been putting my makeup on and I haven’t seen that many tv shows… No, ok, that was an alternative fact. I loved A LOT of the things I have watched this month.
But first of all let me say this: everybody always talks about their “favorites” but I am a bit of a negative person and I wanted to include in this post all of the things that have been getting on my nerves recently. Because on the internet I don’t want to pretend that everything is great. I already do that in my real life.
And what a better way to start this post then talking about the weather.
What is up with these hot temperatures? NO. No. No. Winter come back pls. The weather app on my phone says that this week there’s going to be 31°C (88° F) and I hate it. I’m constantly sweating, I’m always angry… I hate this. I used to love summer when I was little but then I grew up and I came to the realization that bras are uncomfortable, you have to shave and makeup melts on your face.
I can’t put up with this for 4 whole months. And in June/July/August is going to get worst. STUPID HUMIDITY!
Two other things I’ve hated this month are my exams. I’ve been studying for a while now (hence my absence from the blog) and I can’t handle it anymore. The pressure is driving me crazy. As of yesterday, hey are finally over. Let’s hope everything goes smoothly.
Completely changing topic, I have been loving quite a few Garnier products related to skin care, which is something that I was never into. I’ve been using this combo everyday and with drinking gallons and gallons of water, they have made my skin look incredibly healthy. Sure, I have to pee every other minute, but let’s not talk about that.
As I mentioned the rise of he temperature has made it impossible for me to wear eyeshadow without it smugging all over the place. And therefore, I started wearing bold lipsticks. I had completely forgotten how much I love it. I’ve bought three of the Essence Matt Matt Matt lipsticks and I cannot recommend them enough. They stay on my lips all day and for just 2.89€, it’s the best bargain I’ve even found.
Still from the Essence collection, the “All about Matt! fixing compact powder”. And recently I’ve hit pan. That has never happened to me and to tell the truth, I’m quite sad! Nevertheless, this powder is amazing. It helps my foundation stay in place, despite my oily skin. I absolutely adore it and it’s about 4€, so another great affordable product by Essence.
This next brand is (I believe) italian, so I think you can only purchase it here or on their website but Deborah‘s lipsticks are great. They are very drying, but they stay in place for a long time and these two colours are spectacular. They are part of a range that include 8 shades in total and if I find it only sales, I’ll definitely buy another one.
In regards of TV, this month has been AMAZING. There was the Eurovision Song Contest which was spectacular. We, Italy, had the best chances of winnin but Europe was a bitch and turned on us and we lost. Damn you Portugal! YOU DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF THE CONTEST, YOU MORON!
Sorry. I get frustrated. Yes, our song was objectively the best and we should have won. RIGGED! Aside from the ESC, the second season of “Master of None” was PERFECTION. I absolutely WANT (yes, want) you to watch it. It’s probably the best show I have seen this year.
But let’s not forget that the 3° seasons of “12 Monkeys” came out and I binged-watched it in two days. I’ll be writing a review because I obviously have many thoughts about it.
And last but definitely not least, is Hasan Minhaj’s Netflix stand up special: “Homecoming King”. Along with Trevor Noah’s “Afraid of the Dark” and Aziz Ansari’s “Live at MSG”, this is the best stand up special I have ever seen. It’s not just about making stupid jokes and make fun of people: it makes you think and open your mind. He is an intelligent, smart and nice guy. I am profoundly in love with him. Please check him out.
On a personal level, there is a silver lightning: I passed the theory part of my driving exam!!! I did it! After two years begin deadly afraid of taking it, I managed to pass it. I haven’t started driving yet, I still need to go to the driving school and book my first lesson. I have been so busy with my exams, I haven’t even been out of the house.
I really cannot express how relieved I am about passing the test. I am a step closer to a little bit of independence. YAY!
I hope you enjoyed this favourites/non-favourites/life update blog post, even if it is quite a bit late.
