  1. Congratulations on your achievement :) that's huge. My Christmas list is already under way! I'm intrigued by the Lush advent calendar though I'm not sure it's available yet. I'm also seriously craving some ZOEVA brushes.

  3. Yay, Eli! 600 followers, really? That's HUGE :) :), my more sincere congratulations! :)

    I have a looong wishlist but maybe I'll stick to practical ;) Even knowing that what I crave for is... you got it, makeup ^^ Maybe some of the Marc Jacobs products, that recently arrived to Spain. But in any case what I'm wishing for is makeup challenges to make me grow on this. I want to get to get higher and higher in what I love to do...

    I will write it in my Santa (or Reyes, here in Spain) wishlist letter, but it sounds more as a new year wish, isn't it? :)

    (Maybe I should also add getting 600 followers in Bloglovin' too... what do you think? Lol Really, I'm very very happy of hearing this wonderful new from you :) ).

    1. Thanks María, I was also waiting for Marc Jacobs products to be sold in Spain but unfortunately they won't be available in the Sephora nearest to me :( Hopefully I'll be able to get them online somewhere. I think you don't need that many followers as long as YOU know your blog is awesome, and let me tell you I wish I could write such informative and well explained blog posts like you do. Keep writing and I'll keep following you. XO's

    2. Oh! You're so sweet, thank you! ♡

      I must confess I feel really happy with my followers. They can be not many, but I really know I can count on you! (Did you see what happened with the Bitácoras Prize? This is really unbelievable for a blog that only has less than 300 followers in Facebook and Twitter, but I've been in the 22° place for all the beauty and fashion blogs in spanish language! I can't be happier :) )

    3. You deseve that and more, hope you get in the second round. Good luck!!

    1. Thanks! I love my Tangle Teezer I only wish I'd gotten it sooner. My mom borrowed it when on holiday and she immediately fell in love with it. Now she has one of her own :)

  5. Congrats on all the followers :) I really enjoy reading your blog. I really want a beauty blender but it's too expensive for me to justify getting myself at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks! The BB is another item you regret having waited so long before getting it, I love it. I just purchased the Real Techniques dupe? so I'll tell you how that goes, it's definitely a cheaper alternative.

  6. congrats!! you did a great job on your blog :)
    For xmas i'm planning on getting the clarisonic *slowpoke much?* haha

    1. Thanks hun ! I've got a cheaper alternative to the Clarisonic and I love it, it's called Dermanew microdermabrasion system. I've had it for 3 years now and I don't plan on switching over to the Clarisonic for the forseable future.

      Delete
  7. Congratulations, I absolutely love your blog and have been an avid reader for months. My christmas list is slowly growing but seeing as its only october the current items are a beauty blender, Real techniques set of makeup brushes and a silver button necklace . WELL DONE once again.

  8. Congratulations on hitting 600 subscribers!!! Here's to many more to come :)))
    My wishlist is endless but to name a few I've been really wanted to try the Benefit's Majorette new blush ahh their promotions get me hooked on their products all the time!! The Benefit Holiday box blush set is at the top of my wishlist too and I was excited when I saw that on yours as well :P

    1. Thanks Fifi. I don't usually wear any blush so I thought the Benefit palette would help me add this step to my routine. I also like that they have included the Hoola bronzer as the one I have is too shimmery to use it for contouring. Hopefully we will both get what we're wishing for this Christmas...

  29. You know Christmas it is a magical season, a beautiful season that I keep in my heart like if I was 4 years old. Since it is magical than I always hope for miracles by that time...not to many times those miracles come true. I was speaking to my mom and she said I hope you can come home for Christmas, and I said...I hope so too...God can do miracles. I haven't seeing my family in almost 8 years they don't even know my kids :-( so there it is...for Christmas I will be hoping and wishing and praying i can see my mom and dad,my siblings and the rest of the family again.
    Thanks for the opportunity

I'm trying to get to 52 books before the end of the year and I'm doing pretty good. I'll write a post about it in January. See u and good luck !
