#67 Aphorism of the week: Loneliness

The man who follows the crowd 
will usually get 
no further than the crowd.
 The man who walks alone 
is likely to find himself 
in places no one has ever been.

Eco Cosmetics SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer

I think I have to tell you first that I've opted for Eco Cosmetics' tinted moisturizer because it is based on vegetal oils such as pomegranate and sea buckthorn, so I was curious about it and thought it would be a perfect option to use as a daily sunscreen during fall and winter. 
Needless to say, this cream is a mixture of mineral and vegetal ingredients, without the addition of harsh or synthethic ones. 
At fist sight, you are gonna love this cream because of the handy and practical packaging, good work!

An artist never really 
finishes his work, 
he merely abandons it.

Fitocose Jalus C

Jalus C di Fitocose è un siero multivitaminico entrato arrogantemente nei must-haves di questa azienda. Perchè? Semplicemente perchè funziona! :)
L'azione combinata della vitamina C e della Niacinamide consente di ridurre l'iperpigmentazione della pelle e di incrementarne la naturale barriera protettiva, normalizzando la produzione di ceramidi. 
Per quanto riguarda l'utilizzo, io preferisco applicarlo la sera (nei mesi estivi logicamente opto per una crema con protezione solare durante il giorno), generalmente mischiato con 2 gocce di un olio vegetale corposo e nutriente (ultimamente sto usando l'olio di fichi d'india, wow!). Come da copione, si tratta di un siero fluido, trasparente e giallognolo, leggermente appiccicoso appena applicato, ma che si assorbe velocemente, con un odore molto leggero (a me pare di sentire un vago profumo di mela, spero di non avere le allucinazioni!).

Moi, si j'étais une jeune fille... by Maisons du Monde

If I were a little girl, I'd have so much to choose from Maisons du Monde and I'd literally drive my parents crazy! My bedroom would range from green to pink and yellows, from wood to metal and glass, I'd create a nice mix! :) 
Here above you have a composition showing my choice for an ideal little girl's bedroom decoration: 
- Trocadero Vintage Dresser: a beautiful retro mango wood chest of 3 drawers, inevitable for the arrangement of children's clothes. 
- Kyara Natural Mirror: an indian wooden mirror that will turn rooms charming, romantic, yet sophisticated. 
- Bond Street Wall Clock: a classic antique-shaped clock that will bring back to ancient times with style. 
- Chesterfield Pink Velvet Armchair: a romantic button back armchair that will fit amazingly in your little princess bedroom. 
- Branches Wall Decoration: a black metal wall frieze which will add that modern and basic art-touch to every kind of style. 
- Yellow Trunks: this is a set of two galvanised metal trunks of different sizes which will make it easy to store your little girl toys, while adding a touch of fashionable bright design. 
- Kindira Box: a little ethnic style wooden box with 4 drawers ideal for arranging the first jewels (or secrets) of your little princess :) 
- Artificial Bamboo Arrangement 
- Bouquet of 24 Buttercups 
- Bell Jar on Pink Stand 
- Kirikou Stuffed Toy Squirrel  

I'll leave you the link to MDM Junior Collection Catalogue
I hope you enjoyed my journey in past times and have dreamt with me! 
Thank you Maisons du Monde for your ceaseless inspiration...

#65 Aphorism of the week: Work

Thinking is the 
hardest work there is, 
which is probably the reason why
so few engage in it.

Michelleangelo Sculpting Set!

With such a lovely name I couldn't avoid to make it mine! Everyday Minerals created this set to provide everything you need to sculpt your face at a very advantageous price. Sure, because you get 3 full size jars of make up powders and 2 face brushes for only 24.99€, so 5 euros for each item, isn't that fair enough? :) 
The set contains: 
- Angled Flat Top Brush 
- Itahake Brush 
- Wet Sand Lucent Face Powder (4.8g)
- Car Smell Blush (4.8g)
- Beach Bronzer (4.8g)
I haven't tried it yet on my face, but I have my first impression about the effectiveness of the powders and the quality of the brushes, let's check it out then!

#64 Aphorism of the week: Love

No cord or cable
 can draw so forcibly, 
or bind so fast, 
as love can do with only a single thread.

A Praise for Ayanature!


A new discover, a lifetime one. Ayanature is an online beauty store created by Ariane who has decided to ethically sell natural organic products. Why am I so enthusiastic about her? She is an incredibly smart marketer and seller, she perfectly knows how to engage new customers and create a fidelity connection with them. How? If you place an order on Ayanature, you'll receive your goods in a cute gift paper bag with a tiny note on it saying 'Thank you' (unconsciously you'll feel special). Then you'll find inside samples (always welcomed) and adhesives of her mascot, the cutiest animal shown above. 
Who knows a little about marketing and selling psychology will certainly recognize that all this just works! 
So after praising Ariane ^^, I'll show you what I purchased...

A vegetal Silicone?

Image by Dowcorning

Everyone knows the apparent wonders of silicone: it makes your skin feel soft and smooth, your hair shiny and silky. Yes, it just makes them appear like that, but really does nothing to repair and moist them. A lot of people keep on ignoring this fact and use silicone-based cosmetics with satisfaction. Moreover a lot of people don't know it is extremely pollutant because it is not biodegradable. You maybe just don't care about the surrounding nature, because you just can't live without your synthetic cosmetics that in your opinion make their job. So listen, what if I told you that you might have the same effect of silicones with a natural alternative?!
