Review: Baby Lips (Maybelline)

Good Morning! It is really cold in Barcelona ... BRR (at least for me!)

Today the post will be focused on Beauty. This is the first review I write based on my personal experience with the product, which is the famous and acclaimed lip balm from Maybelline: Baby Lips. I have seen a lot of YouTube videos and the vast majority said that it was one of the best lip balm that they have ever had. Some weeks ago it was released in Spain and I really wanted to try it - after all the things I had heard, I was curious to see if it was as amazing as everybody says.

When I get to the department store, there were only just a few of them (guess i was not the only one who wanted to try them!) and I finally got the Quenched 005. This is what they are supposed to do:

  • Protects and moisturizes for a full 8 hours
  • After 1 week*, lips are visibly renewed, virtually reborn

Baby Lips - Quenched 005

Here comes my personal experience with it: I just tried them for 3 days and the results were ... terrible. I do not have extremely dry lips but with the cold they get a little dry. When I aplly the product it feels great, smooth and with a little bit taste of lemon. But after some hours my lips are drier than before and very tense; I tried to put a little more product on my lips and it gets worse. So for me, it does not protects and moisturizes for a full 8 hours (maybe just for 30 min) and it definitely does not help my lips to be visibly renewed and virtually reborn, they just look awful and dry.

I guess that I am one of the few ones that had these problem with it ... Anyway, have you tried Baby Lips? What was your experience? Do you know about any good lip balm?

P.D: I apologize for any mistake that I may have done while I was writing in English!

We keep in touch :)

I finished the University... and now WHAT?

This is a post focused in Life and all the things that happen in it. So… yeah, I finished University and now what? I did Tourism and Hospitality Management and at the beginning of the 4th and last year of University I began to realize that working in the tourism industry was not what I wanted to do with my life, but I finished my bachelor degree anyway.

And well, I feel that I am in a stage of life where I am stuck. I keep thinking why I chose to study that, what I would change about what I have done until now… but the truth is that the past is the past and I cannot change anything, the changes come from now on.

It has been 3 months since I came clean to myself and decided that I have to fight for what I want. You try to please the others instead to focus on what you like, you try to study what people say that will be more profitable instead to go for what you actually love and that is the worst that you can do. Because if you have to wake up at 5.30AM, better be for going to a job that you like and enjoy – there is nothing worst that wake up and go to a job that you hate.

Going back to the question – and now what? I try to get a job that I feel that I could contribute and I would enjoy, but of course, they ask for several skills/studies that I do not have; but I will figure it out what to do. I believe anything can happen if you set your heart on it, just fight! If you fall, get up… and if you fall 10.000 times then get up 10.001 times!

I know that this is quite a personal post, but it feels good to let some thoughts out. What are your thoughts? Are you in a situation like these or you are doing what you love and enjoy?

P.D: I share with you one song that has been in my head since I listened to it in Monday, it is called Young Volcanoes by Fall Out Boy (the video clip is kind of creepy/weird but he song is great! It cheers me up!)

We keep in touch! Have a nice day :)

Follow my blog with Bloglovin!

I am trying to link the blog with Bloglovin, let's see if I am successful!

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Welcome, welcome and welcome!

First of all, I want to thank you for spending your time reading the thoughts, experiences, ideas...  about life in general and, of course, a bunch of silly/nonsense post written by a 22 year old girl trying to figure it out what she wants to do with her life.

Secondly, I want to apologize for all the grammatical/spellings mistakes that will appear in this blog (I'm sure it will happen). English is not my mother tongue, actually is the third language that I've learned - I'm from Barcelona (Spain), so since I was a little kid I have been speaking Spanish and Catalan - and the reason why I want to do the blog in English is to write more in english and improve it! You are more than welcome to tell me if I wrote something wrong, if a word is bad used or if I just made up a new word in English; let's face it, it may happen.

This is something I wanted to do for a long time but I did not have the nerve to do it, but I just thought, if other people can do it, why not me? I am still trying to decide what to talk about, but I guess that it would be about things I really love:

  • Beauty/Fashion: I love clothes and shoes, but since I do not have a lot of money I just go into the shops, I look all the things that I cannot afford and then I cry in a corner. Some of you will know what I mean... Anyway, happiness is not reduced to clothes! I am also a fan of creams, shampoos and all of that stuff.
  • Travel: Another passion is to travel. The adventures, discovering a new place, new people, new traditions, new cultures... I want to see so many places, so many things – and I am sure someday I will. 
  • Life: Oh, life. The little things of life are one of the best things! And also the ones that does not cost any money, like a kiss from the person you love, those laughs with your friends, cozy night at home with your family or helping someone... We have to learn to appreciate those kind of moments! But life is not supposed to be easy, for anyone. I will share with you my concerns and thoughts about it,

Now, I will try to figure how Blogger, because I am a little lost!  

We keep in touch! Have a nice day :)

P.D: I have a twitter account: @notacatchyname, you are more than welcome to follow me! (it is a work in progress...)
