Haul: Summer Edition

Hi there!

My life is all about feeling sheer and fresh this summer. As you may know, summer days in Puerto Rico are as hot and sticky as... "feels like 95°". All you need is as least make-up as possible, fresh-smelling products and awesome sunglasses!

Today I'm sharing some of my summer favorites, recently bought and currently adoring. So take a look at my table, pick the one/ones you would like to try and read my review below.

1. Hair
(Un)done hair is my thing since I chopped my hair some weeks ago. Bye, bye heat! I just wash my hair and let it air-dry all the time. I have wavy hair, but when I want a little more texture I just spray a small amount of sea-salt spray and build deeper waves with my fingers. 

Have you ever washed your hair and then can't stop smelling it every time you have a chance? I've been using Garnier Fructis products for years because I'm in love with their fruity smell. But then I discovered Herbal Essences new line and specifically fell for the fresh smell of this one, which literally makes my hair feel extremely clean and soft after each wash.

2. Accessory
I you follow me since I started my blog, back in 2011, you must already know I have a serious addiction with sunnies. I change them almost every day, depending on my outfit. I recently discovered this page, where the average price is $10 and you have free shipping. It was like discovering HEAVEN to me!

3. Skin care
Chia Seeds Moisture-holding Seed Cream

One of my favorite stores in New York City is The Face Shop. Every single time I visit, I stop by and buy some of their amazing face soaps and magical face masks. There was an extra item in my shopping bag last time I visited, on May. This moisturizer seemed perfect for summer, since it's not greasy. Your skin feels fresh and hydrated at the same time. You can also find it in Amazon.com!

4. Make-up
Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles

I can go anywhere without any makeup, except for the eye-concealer. My favorite drugstore brand is Maybeline and my favorite concealer: Fit Me. But, after watching a few tutorials on YouTube, I noticed that a lot of vloggers like this one so much. They were right! Good coverage and variety of colors for all skin types.

5. Plant
Say hello to my new/alive thing: Chloe.

Last, but not least!
Gillette Venus Swirl Razor

I like to wear skirts all the time during summer. Also, I live close to the sea, so I need to shave constantly! This baby leaves no irritation when used with the shaving cream and it's so friendly to use because of the FLEXIBALL, that contours over curves for flawless skin.

Summer Seeds

Hello, everybody!!!

So I wanted to try and make the Chia Seed Pudding, since I'm digging the cooking thing lately. 
The result was flawless!

What I love most about this recipe is that it requires just a few ingredients and you can make tons of versions, depending on the fruits and flavors you choose. 

You'll need:
1 1/2 cup of almond milk
1/3 cup of chia seeds
a tablespoon of honey
green grapes or any other fruit

Mix it all together, cover with a lid, shake well and let it rest in the fridge for an hour.

After one hour, it will look something like this:

Shake it again and let it rest in the fridge for another four hours.


You can enjoy it as breakfast, snack or even as dessert
It's perfect for summer because it is refreshing and good for your health
