September Book Haul

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while… My life has been so busy the past month that I couldn’t find time to blog. I’ve been planning this post since the beginning of October but time flew by… I went to Paris a week ago and it was amazing (I really want to blog about that so here’s hoping I find some time for it). I’ve been sick almost since I came back (if I’d known, I would have just stayed there, right?). Continue reading


Montagne Jeunesse Haul

Hello everyone!

I’m sorry about my absence this past week but uni started again and it’s been busy. It’s the last year of my master’s degree and this week we had to take care of a couple of things regarding our thesis (which we’ll be doing in the next semester), paired with our classes starting. Anyway, I might do a blog post about all that if you’re interested so let me know if you are. However, that’s not what brings me here today…

I’m here today to talk to you about the Montagne Jeunesse masks and all the different ones I bought a while ago. I think I first heard about this brand here on WordPress and the first time I saw them for sale in my city it was in Primark. Since then I’ve found another place at the mall that sells their products (not as cheap as in Primark) and last week I found yet another place in my city (which is the most expensive of the three).

August Beauty Buys

Hello everyone!

My summer internship has finally ended and now I’m currently enjoying some short holidays at home because uni starts again next week (oh the joy…). Anyway, I’m back with another beauty post, this time to share with you what I bought during August. Continue reading

Highlighters: Too Many or Not Enough?

Hello everyone!

I hope you’ve all been good. I only have 4 more days of my summer internship (currently in the middle of the 4th one when I realised I saved this as a draft instead of publishing it last night) and I honestly can’t wait for it to end, even though after it does I will be missing it like crazy… It’s been amazing but I’m just so so exhausted. I’ve been going to bed at 11 p.m. the past couple of nights and believe me when I tell you that’s really unusual for me.

Anyway, today I’m here to talk to you about my favourite make-up item: highlighters! I own quite a few because it’s so hard to resist them and the only reason I don’t own more is because I’ve been exercising my self-restraint.

So I’m going to show you my collection of highlighters before telling you my opinion on them. Continue reading

July Book Haul

Hello everyone!

I’m currently in Spain with my parents and my brother having some well deserved rest. I wanted to share with you, once again, the books I bought this past month. So the thing is… Since I was starting my internship at the beginning of July, I actually thought I wasn’t going to have time to go buy books and I was pretty happy to save that money. How silly of me to have thought that… I actually don’t remember the last time I bought this many books. Anyhow, I’ve pretty happy with all the books I bought and I’m actually going through them pretty quickly now that I have days filled with doing nothing but what I please (which mainly includes reading, by the way).

Life Update + Dunkirk

Hey everyone! It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Since I started my summer internship on the 5th of July, my life got a whole new level of busy. I work from 8:30 to 5:30 in the afternoon and by the time I get home I just have no energy to do anything productive. Sometimes I don’t even have energy to do anything besides lying on the couch. Anyway, apart from the tiredness, it’s been amazing! I’m loving it way more than I thought I would and everyone is just so nice that I already feel like I’ve been working there for months. I’m going on holidays next week with my parents and then I’ll come back to the internship until the 1st of September. I’m not even mad anymore about not having a summer because this experience will definitely make me grow as a person (it already has). Continue reading

June Book Haul

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re all great! I started my summer internship yesterday and, even though I’ve only been there two days, I’m liking it more than I thought I would so far. Let’s see how it goes from here…

Anyway, today I bring you the list of books I bought last month. Continue reading

NYX Beauty Haul

Hello guys!

I’m back with another post, this time about a haul I did this month. NYX opened a little temporary store in my city so I went there to buy a couple of things because I really like the stuff I own from NYX. Honestly I ended up buying more than I intended on but there’s nothing I can do about it now.

Hopeless Fountain Kingdom – Halsey

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another album review, this time of Halsey’s second album: Hopeless Fountain Kingdom.

Before we get into that, I just want to update you on two things. First, I created an instagram account exclusively for my blog so feel free to follow me on there if you want (@justme_joana). Secondly, next Wednesday, I’ll be starting my summer internship (which I’m really anxious but also excited about) and I’ll be there the whole month of July and the last three weeks of August, so I’m sorry if I don’t have much time to be on here.
