My 2013 (dream) project!

Here we go, 2013 is coming and like always people think about their plans for the new year. To me, planning is failing. I've done so many plans in my short life, they almost never proved to be effective, yet the most amazing and important events came suddenly and unexpected. I believe everyone can live his/her own dream if they really desire it, the main obstacles are not in the concrete world, they are in people's mind. I'm that kind of pessimist person who thinks there are millions of people in the world BETTER than me, that's why I prefer to lie down in the shadow avoiding comparisons, they drive me crazy. But what in the hell BETTER means? Better than what? Better in what? Better is such a RELATIVE term. So what living a better life could mean? It could mean infinite things. 

To me, desiring a better life just means finding my inner peace through the achievement of a balanced material environment. My biggest desire for this and the following years is to find my place in the world and engaging myself 24/7 in creating a BETTER society and a BETTER world for EVERYONE. Better doesn't necessarily mean perfect, it means a little 'more something' than what it is now.  

I wanna stop artists from begging in the streets, that's one of the most unfair things in the world. I know there are incredibly worse matters goin on, but this issue is so close to my heart that I can't avoid to fight for it. Artists create positive vibrations, a good energy flow and we should know we are made of energy, our body and spirit are energy. How can artists have the strenght to leave it all and live in the streets? Because they've found their vocation, their essence, their reason of living, their past present and future nature. They are free wild sensitive creatures trapped in a money poisoned society. 
I wish I had a lot of money to show people they don't need to have a lot of money to achieve their dreams, they just need PASSION, DEDICATION and a BIG HEART...

Homely Christmas 2012

Hello Friends, I just realized my blog is a way too cold, maybe the reason is that I never show myself. I don't like posting photos of me actually because I'm not photogenic at all and I like maintaning my 'privacy'. However I've decided to make an effort ;) so here I am during the usual Christmas lunch. I must confess I don't enjoy this kind of forced recurrent holidays, firstly because they are so fake, how can we eat so luxuriously while millions of people are starving? I feel contradicted, I don't ever wanna take part to such parties but I do it for pleasing my beloved ones. Anyway I don't wanna negativise your BIG PARTIES sooo... I wish you an incredible day with your family!

Lavera Trend Sensitiv Mineral Compact Powder

Lavera Compact Powder is a fully mineral and natural setting powder that gives a flawless complexion. There are two shades available: Cool Ivory, which is really rosey, so if you don't have pink undertones, just avoid it! 
Warm Beige is a warm abricot shade, ideal for everyone from light to deep skintones. I chose this one, despite of being afraid of having an Oompa Loompa kinda effect, no worries! It is pretty transparent so your skin won't get any sort of color. 

Here we go with the ingredients: 
 Mica, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Magnesium Stearate, Magnesium Silicate, Silica, Tricaprylin, (),Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*,Hippophae Rhamnoides Fruit Extract*, Tocopherol, Camelina Sativa Seed Oil, Vegatable Oil (Olus Oil), Water (Aqua), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract*, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Flower Extract*, Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract*, Tilia Cordata Flower Extract*, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Alcohol*, Fragrance (Parfum)**, Limonene**, Geraniol**, Linalool**, Citronellol**, Citral**, [+/-Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Silver Oxide] 

Mica will leave that nice glowy finish (it is a matte powder anyway), silica will absorb any excess oil. I really appreciate the presence of all those vegetal oils and butter which help protect, soothe and moisturize the skin; they've also added vitamin A and E, plus some pretty vegetal extract, I adore this 'made with love' formula :) All I can say about it is that it works, it leaves your skin matte with a subtle natural glow and really helps hiding pores (I can't say anything about fine lines by now!)

Pukka Ayurveda Nourishing Brightener

This is a 100% organic face scrub, made following Ayurveda's principles. It has been conceived for normal to oily skin and has detoxifying and replenishing properties. 
I purchased it on Naturisimo for 13£. 
Let's go directly to the analysis of the ingredients' list: 

Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Almond) Seed Powder*, Vaccinum myrtillus (Bilberry) Fruit Extract*, Emblica officinalis (Amla) Fruit Powder*, Asparagusracemosus (Shatavari) Root Powder*, Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice) Root Powder*, Rubia cordifolia (Manjishtha) Root Powder*, Hydrocotyle asiatica (Gotu kola) LeafPowder*, Azadirachta indica (Neem) Leaf Powder*, Athrospira platensis (Spirulina)Powder*, Curcuma longa (Turmeric) Root Powder*. 

As you can see this is a blend of dried herbs, seeds and fruits formulated to help achieving a radiant complexion. 
It contains almond seed powder (simply an exfoliating agent), bilberry extract (rich in vitamin C, it is also tonic and astringent), licorice (illuminates and gives radiance to the skin), turmeric (anti-inflammatory properties), spirulina (stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin) and various ayurvedic plants extracts that together detoxify your skin cells, lifting up your complexion! 

Is is definetely a well-formulated scrub, I love the blend of natural extracts they made and the fact that it is in a dry form so that everytime you use it, you can be free to add it to your mask, cleanser or simply to a few drops of water if you are in a hurry! What I don't like about it? It is not finely milled enough in my opinion, but I easily 'solved the issue' by putting it a few second in a coffee grinder :)

The Best Gift Idea: Save the Children NOW!

'We cannot leave defenseless children anywhere exposed to ruin- moral or physical. We cannot run the risk that they should weep, starve, despair and  die, with never a hand stretched out to help them'  
Eglantyne Jebb 

What 'Save the Children' is? 
In 1919 a revolutionary woman, Eglantyne Jebb, began fighting for children's rights thus founding this association that today is the most important international independent organization for defending children lives.   

While you are getting ready for luxurious Christmas Eve's dinner, tons of children are dying and YOU ARE AWARE OF THAT, so don't take more time, just choose to help someone TODAY! 
'Save the Children' gives you the chance to do a very special gift: all you have to do is choosing the gift in honor of someone you love, place your order and they will immediately send a personalized gift ecard to your honoree featuring the gift item chosen in their name, sure you will put a smile on someone's face! 
Here you can find the list of gifts available, thank you for your support! 

We alla wish you together a wonderful and flourishing New Year! 
Thank you!
