Liebster Award (x2)

It took a while, but i eventually decided to do my own Liebster Award! I was nominated like a month ago by Emma, but I just weren't adjusted to the blogging thing and indeed, didn't know enough bloggers to tag back.
Then, Laura nominated me again,  and it was a wake up call!
So, this is basically the reason why I will be answering so many sets of questions, thank you a lot for nominating me:)

 The Rules *:
1.                  Each nominee must mention and link back the person who nominated them.
2.                 Answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominator.
3.                 List 11 random facts about yourself.
4.                 Nominate 11 blogs who have less than 300 followers for this award.
5.                 Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
6.                 Inform your nominees that you have nominated them.

7 Days to Skinny Jeans

The losing weight plans simply don't work for you? I just know that this is the case for me:  I begin my very personal schedule enthusiastically and after a few days I decide  that there's no point in struggling to be slimmer, that I'm not fat and I should be happy with how I look...  But then I feel so guily: if at some point I felt it was necessary to become a bit fitter, why not stick to the plan?!

Of course, everybody is happier when they exercise and respect a healthy eating schedule, but how does this work for us, the lazy and unmotivated?

12 Links I Love

Are you lacking inspiration? In desperate need of suggestions and honest advice? The Internet ocean is so deep and sometimes it's hard not to get drowned in the variety of content and articles... Here are some sites that I recently discovered, explored and decided to pass on: it's definitely a worthwhile activity!

A couple days ago I saw a few "Links That I Love" posts created by some of my favorite bloggers, and immediately fell for this idea. I had such an interesting experience discovering original and utterly amazing sites, that provide unique ideas and high-quality content! 
From astonishing blogs and sites that made my eyeballs happy, to music and news networks, or very unconventional topics, I read lots of wonderful articles and marvelled at unbelievable photographs.

Spring Outfit of the Day

I did it!

After several attempts to create an Outfit of the Day post, I succeeded in taking a few hasty pictures of the items I wore today. I usually get up at 7 o'clock and until 7:45 I run against the clock; today was an exception, nonetheless, as we started at 10. So, I put togheter a quick outfit and took these snaps. I am still working on the folding techniques and I am having serious trouble in photographing myself actually wearing the outfit... However, I hope you can overlook these pretty little issues and wait until I figure out how to improve this kind of post...

Weekend & Cupcakes

These days I am so dazed&confused... It's mid March and I'm so undecided and unsure. School is pretty deserted for some reason, and the whole life seems to lead to an unknown path.

Would you rather Beauty Edition

I found this tag on Emma's Blog and loved so much reading it so I decided to do it as well. All the questions are beauty-related (miss obvious), fun and very easy to answer:)

What's on my desk?

    I figured it would be more interesting to keep things natural, and show the unaltered look of my desk. For some reason, as I sit and do things, I get so absorbed into my work that I don't even notice how the stuff floats around me. When I finally open my eyes and look around, though, I see that the situation went crazy and the desk is more cluttered than ever before.
    However, to be honest, this helps me at times, because I feel like I am bathing in all the things that I like. On the other hand, sometimes I get so stressed out and annoyed, that I have to quickly tidy up.

Party Nail Combo!

    Even though this nail kit was meant to be a wintery one, I decided to break the rules and paint my nails with these for tonight's party even though it's springtime fever. 
    Of course, I received this from Secret Santa... and it was probably one of the most inspired choices. I wore it at my birthday, but also at Christmas and New Year's. What I like most about it is that you can combine the 4 polishes in so many ways and give the impression of radical change, although you just applied some sparkle.

    So, what you need to know about this kit is that it's from Sephora's Nail Wand. I suppose it was a Christmas Edition or something. Moreover, these were really affordable even before sales.

    And the names are so cute: Red Berries SmoothieSilver GlitterElectroshotMirror Mirror.
      Here is the official description: Create dazzling, trendy looks with this set of three nail lacquers and one extra-glittery topcoat. Sport a subtle day look or add some shimmer for a glamorous evening look. The wand component makes it easy to take only the colors you want or click them all together for a collection that travels in a snap.

Now you can take a look at my Red Berries Smoothie mani; hopefully it will match my outfit :D

The magical spell of Moonrise Kingdom?!

Yes, I may be a late boomer, but it's just my way of showing how much I care for those of you who haven't seen this Marvelous flick! I've been waiting to watch this movie for a few long months, as I was always too busy or not in the required mood... So, I can  proudly tell you that I finally accomplished this task! 

Long story short?
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to haunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore; and the peaceful island community is turned upside down...
