Bag obsession/ What could be in my bag

Hi! so I'm really sorry I haven't posted in a while, but I'm currently working on another one that is coming out soon :) so today I'm going to show you my favorite bag.
So I've been craving one of these for a long time, I always talk about it and for my birthday my lovely friends got me one, how amazing are they? I guess they were kind of sick of me talking about getting one hahahha. Take a look 
I really love this bag, it's so big! If you are wondering where you can get this, it's from H&M, and last time I checked it cost like 24 dollars. As I told you before it's really big, you wouldn't believe me how many things you can fit in here. So yesterday I had to go to a friends house and this is what I put in my bag.
29 things! and I still have space although my bag is really heavy right know so i wouldn't recommend it.
Ok so here's the list of things I packed (in case you want to know)
1.- My PJ's 
2.-Hair Brush
3.-A ring (It's actually a spoon folded!) 
4.- Victoria's Secret Hand and Body Cream - Vanilla Lace
5.- Apple Power Adapter
6.- Bobby Pins
7.- USB Iphone Adapter
8.- Deodorant
9.- Polaroid Camera 
10.- Toothbrush (I know, I have to change it)
11.- Eyelash Curler
12.-  Little Makeup Bag (It's from Clinique, I stole it from my mom hahaah)
13.- Tweezers
14.- Mini Speaker
15.- Models Own Nail Polishes (blog post about this coming soon!)
16.- Flat Iron Accessory
17.- Curling Iron
18.- Pocket Mirror
19.- Benefit Sunbeam Sample
20.- Headphones
21.- Lacoste Parfum - Pink Collection, Love of Pink
22.- O.P.I. Avojuice Creams
23.- Essence Nail Pens (review here)
24.- Bubble Gum
25.- Pen
26.- Lip-gloss
27.- Gel for pimples and black spots - Asepxia
28.- Eyeliner- Maybelline Master Precise
29.- Mascara - Maybelline Colosal

Wow, finally, I told you it was a lot! I do have to tell you some things: I don't always carry around this amount of things, I usually just put my phone, purse and some makeup  and that's it! This bag is also available on brown, but I like it better in black. Other pictures I took

So yeah, I hope you like it, I'm sorry I don't show my face but is a mess because I just had chicken pox (yes, I'm seventeen, yes, it was horrible and yes, a have a lot of scars in my face).

Review: Essence Studio Nails Pen

Hello there, so today I'm going to give you my review on two products I recently bought, one is a cuticle softener pen and the other one is a corrector pencil. I've been craving something to take care of my cuticles, so when I got into a store and I saw this and it was love at first sight, it was just what i was looking for and the best part its that it isn't expensive, it's like 5-6 dollars, which its a great price. So it looks like this

It says that it has apricot seed and jojoba oils, jojoba oils are great for nails because it makes them harder, and has other uses like makes your skin softer, gives volumes to your hair and I also read somewhere that it helps to prevent wrinkles. It also has some other wonderful oils like almond and avocado. And to top it off it has a amazing  lemon-ish scent. I have used this many times and I feel like my cuticles are way more soft and moisturized. To use it you just have to apply it in your cuticles, let it soak in for a few minutes and then you can push them back.

The next one this a polish corrector, it is used when a clumsy person like me paints the cuticles with nail polish, so all that you have to do is pass this pen through the areas that you want to remove and that's it! Very simple. So here's a photo that I took

It smell AMAZING because it has a cherry fragrance, and your nails will smell like that when you use it.
And you can use it several times because it has 3 replacements, which are located at the back of the pen.

I'm sorry for that white sticker that you can see, I forgot to take it off when I took the photos :(

I love it, it really works and you can get really good results. I have used it so much that I've already have one grey-black colored tip hahhah just look at it

Really dark hahahah

So this is my review, you can visit essence website here, they have a great variety of products related with makeup and I think they are really great and affordable. Please leave a comment about a product that you love. I hope to write very soon.

Hi, so this is my first blog post and I'm going to show you my few attempts of "nail art", I always get the ideas from youtube videos, so I'll link the videos from which i tried to copy the designs from, but in a really poor way hahahhah. So this was my first attempt, i got the idea from a channel called cutepolish. I absolutely LOVE her designs and they are really simple but look so cute!

So here's my kind of "version" of it, but a I think a failed a bit because my nails were short and I didn't have the studs that she put in the video which is this. But at least I tried hahahha. Also the polish didn't last much because the were a really cheap one, so lesson learned for me, even though some polishes are more expensive it is worth it sometimes, if you want it to last up to a week or more and take care of them! (which also it's hard for my as I'm super clumsy hahahha)
Also it look a bit weird because I edited it with instagram and I "accidentally" deleted the original.

This was another attempt, this time with better polishes as you can see, luckily I got this gorgeous O.P.I for Christmas, it is called "Number One Nemesis", I think it was part of the Spider-Man Collection. I did this for New Year as is super sparkly and I don't know why but it seem to me perfect for New Years Eve, and I love having one nail different to the other. A little advice on this polish, it took me like 3-4 coats to get this color and it's really hard to get it of your nails, so you better use a good polish remover.

 This is my recent attempt, I did it yesterday, i got the idea from a channel called HelloMaphie, she has amazing tutorials, you should check her out, this time I used China Glaze "white on white", for the blue one I used Flormar Neon N°15, which is kind of a deep blue, and the black was from Maybelline Colorama, and I cant remember the name but it was a simple black nail polish. Again as I didn't have the rhinestones that she used (which totally look better) I had to used a toothpick and tried to do my best at it. Also a great discovery for myself which has made my life so much easier is to use scotch tape to make the straights lines, it's so easy for people like me who don't have many skills hahaha. Also I have to mention that I changed some things because I could do it properly.

Well I hope you like my post, please leave a comment and I'll love to see your attempts and how you didn't failed like me hahaha. Also if you know a great youtuber let me know in the comments.
