Gigi Hadid for Vogue UK by Patrick Demarchelier
Here we are, 6 days into the new year. I’m sure by now you’ve already read a million posts talking about the good, the bad and the ugly of 2015, specially if you’re a pop-culture junkie like me. But we need to talk about this: Gigi Hadid.
If you follow me on instagram, you know how starstruck I am about Gigi, something that a year a go didn’t happen, a year ago the world had no idea who Gigi was, today she’s the most wanted model in the world. Crazy, right?
It’s december once again, which means we get to look back on all the great products that have made our lives a little bit more fun. Today I want to share my 2015 beauty favorites with you. Probably most of these products were released way behind like in 2014 (I really don’t know), but it’s definitely been the year that I’ve been using these non-stop.
- Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Rosé Eau de Parfum
- Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Rouge Pur Couture in Soft Fuchsia
- Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle (love this as a highlighter)
- Garnier Eye Roll-On
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown
- EOS Visibly Soft Coconut Milk Lip Balm
- Sephora Collection Pro Brow Brush #20
- MAC Lipstick in Pink Fusion (I think it’s limited edition)
I’m not going over every single product because it would transform this into a really big post, so I’m just going to mention some quick things. I got the Carolina Herrera fragrance as a gift from my boyfriend, so if you’re reading this, thanks a lot because you nailed it and I love it. Talking about the Urban Decay products mentioned earlier, the quality is so good, the primer potion has never failed me and the Naked 2 has been my favorite pretty much since it came out because the colors are so neutral and vibrant, so you can easily do an every day look or a party one. I’m sure everybody has heard of Soft & Gentle by MAC, it gives you a beautiful glow that is perfect for every single season of the year, if you haven’t tried it yet I highly recommend it. I obviously have an obsession with lip balms (who doesn’t?) and ever since I discovered EOS, it has been my go to but this summer I picked up the coconut milk one and OMG guys, it smells heavenly and it’s so soft on your lips, it’s my favorite. Continuing with the lip stuff, this summer I discovered the YSL Rouge Pour Couture Lipsticks and of course I picked a pink shade, it was my absolute favorite during the summer time, I think it was the only lipstick I wore, it’s just so pretty. Last but not least, my gorgeous and perfect MAC lipstick in Pink Fusion was given to my as a gift on my birthday by my lovely friend Dayris. Like its name says, the lipstick is literally a fusion between pink and red with a blue undertone. I had never owned a lipstick with those characteristics so I was very excited to try it out, it’s no surprise that I love it and plan to keep wearing it throughout the next year.
The winter time is amazing, specially for those who live in places that transform into a winter wonderland, everything is so magical, that’s why lots of people call it the best time of the year. But do you know who is not that much into it? Your hands. They hate it. As a girl with sensitive skin, I know what I’m talking about, trust me, and I’m sure you kinda know it too. With all the fuzz that comes with the season, family meetings, friends and parties… plus all the work at the office or school. It’s completely normal that you forget about your hands, but let’s be real, they kind of do all the work for you. You depend on them 24/7 even when you’re not working or doing something productive. That’s why you should take care of them, specially during the cold months. If you want to kiss goodbye dry aligator hands during this season, there’s some stuff you need to do.
Everybody knows december 13 is the day when the world’s favorite blondie blows her candles, this year the Bad Blood singer turns 26, and as her record-breaking CD “1989” has become a legend, so has her flawless style. So, since 13 is Taylor’s lucky number, let’s review her best 13 outfits.

Doing your nails is something very common for girls all over the world. It’s so nice to have your nails painted in a super cute summery shade, and don’t even get me started on the darker colors – I mean, I’m a big fan of dark shades. I like deep purple and my all-time favorite nail polish color, black – you can NEVER go wrong with black.
Some people say painting your nails can help get rid of your stress… yeah right. Let’s face it, unless you get your nails done by a pro, #thestruggleisreal.
Here are the top problems girls face when doing their own nails:
