February Skincare HAUL

February - Skincare Haul

Se suponía que en febrero había que resistir la tentación de comprar por ser un mes corto pero como podéis ver yo no he resistido la tentación. Fui una vez más a SpaceNK y se vinieron conmigo varios productos de limpieza para la cara. De momento estoy muy contenta con todos ellos. El limpiador de Sarah Chapman estaá sustituyendo al de Sundey Riley. Ceramic Slip es uno de mis favoritos pero, recientemente, mi cara me estaba pidiendo un cambio y parece que he acertado. También compré Blue Moon con el que estoy encantada. Por último, Aurelia Miracle Cleanser tras usar la muestra el mes pasado.
El mes que viene me mantendré alejada de SpaceNK, CultBeauty, Boots o cualquier tienda que me ofrezca estos productos.

February suppose to be a month to resist temptations and I didn't...I went to SpaceNK and ended buying three different face cleaners. I really like all of them and my skin is really happy when I use them. Sarah Chapman one has replaced Ceramic Slip by Sunday Riley. I still in love with it but my skin has been asking for a change a long time and seems that has made a good decision.
Also, I have bought a Blue Moon and I love it! Last one has been Aurelia Miracle Cleanser as I have used a sample last month and found it really good.
Next month I won't buy any skincare product, will stay far away from SpaceNK, CultBeauty, Boots or any other shop with this kind of products.

  2. Sunday Riley BLUE MOON
  3. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare MIRACLE CLEANSER

RESEÑA: Passenger

Young Adult - Fiction - Alexandra Bracken - Bloombury - Passenger Series 1 -

passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.
In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now. Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not. Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever

Passenger es un libro que os enamorará desde el primer momento que llegue a vuestras manos. La portada es preciosa, una auténtica obra de arte. Os recomiendo la versión de tapa dura, es simplemente adorable. Al principio la historia avanza algo lenta y es todo algo confuso pero una vez el libro te atrapa no podréis parar. Etta nos llevará con ella a través del tiempo, buscando un objeto a contrarreloj con la ayuda de un pirata. Si os gustó la triología Joyas Preciosas (Rubí, Zafiro y Esmeralda) de Kerstin Gier os gustará Passenger. 

Etta es una violinista que se tiene que adaptar rápidamente a grandes cambios en su vida. Nos encontramos ante una joven divertida, fuerte y valiente. Etta me ha recordado, en algunos momentos, a uno de mis personajes favoritos, si existiera una versión joven de Clare Fraser. Nicholas tiene una vida difícil, debido a su origen en una sociedad del siglo XVIII. La historia de amor es de esas que avanzan despacio pero junto a la trama y con la evolución de los personajes. Alexandra escribe de una manera muy elegante por lo que se disfruta cada una de las páginas. Passenger ha sido mi primer contacto con esta autora y estoy deseando leer más libros suyos. De momento, este tiene una valoración de 4/5.

Passenger is a book that will make you fall in love as soon as you get it. The cover is so beautiful and if you manage to buy the hardcover version you will find it wonderful. At first, the story goes a bit slow but once you conect with the characters and the story you can't stop reading. You will follow Etta through the time, searching a very important object, with a pirate as ally. If you enjoy Kerstin Gier triology you will enjoy Passenger.
Etta is a violinist that is able to adapt herself quickly to lots of massive changes in her life. She is funny, strong and brave. Etta reminds me to one of my favourites female characters, Clare Fraser, if a younger version of herself would exist
Nicholas life is quite difficult and hard due to his origin but he is strong and very protective with Etta. Their love story is a romance that starts slowly and will advance with the main plot and adventure. 
Alexandra writes very elegant and you will enjoy each of the pages. Passenger has been my first contact with her books and I can't wait to read more. I give it 4/5 stars. 

Un libro que tenía muchas ganas de leer y que no me ha decepcionado. Esperando con muchas ganas el segundo libro. Leeré más libros de esta escritora. // A book that I couldn't wait to read and that has met my expectations. Can't wait to read the next one. I will add Alexandra to my "to-read" list.

RESEÑA: Throne of Glass

Young Adult - Fiction - Sarah J. Maas - Bloombury - Throne of Glass Series 1 -

In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake: she got caught.
Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament—fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin’s heart be melted?

Pese a que la historia es súper interesante, es un libro que me ha costado meterme en el universo, especialmente, al principio cuando la historia es algo lenta y puede que gran culpa de ello haya sido que estos días el trabajo ha sido agotador. Como ya he comentado antes, lo primero que me llamó la atención de este libro fue la portada, me parece preciosa. Lo siguiente que me llamo la atención es nuestra protagonista, Celaena. Es misteriosa, fuerte, valiente, decidida, atractiva, sarcástica y orgullosa. Su vida no ha sido un camino de rosas y eso se refleja en su carácter. La historia en sí es genial pero sería mejor si fuera un poco más rápida. Tiene un giro cuando llevas un tercio del libro que no me esperaba para nada y hace que la lectura sea más amena y el misterio de los asesinatos te mantiene enganchada hasta el final.
Los chicos en este libro también son muy interesantes...tanto Dorian como Chaol y el conjunto de los tres hace que ésta sea una gran lectura si te gusta las historias de aventuras, acción, misterio, magia y algo de amor, este es un libro que deberías leer. 
El final es de infarto, no puedes parar de leer y hace que quieras saber mucho más de este universo. Por suerte hay varios libros de la saga publicados y no hay que esperar mil para leer el segundo. 

I have to confess this: when I started this book I was a bit disappointed, the book was slow and I didn't manage to get into it easily but I think my job hasnt helped as has been mad recently. 
As I have said before, the first thing I liked about this book was the cover page, the second thing was Celeana, she is a badass. She is beautiful, intelligent, sarcastic, funny, brave and a bit arrogant. Her life hasn't been easy and you can see it in her actitude. 
The story is great but I would like it to be a bit faster. When you have read about 1/3 of the book something happens that make all more interesting and easy to read and then there is a sadic and misterious murderer around that makes you keep reading.
The male characters in this book are also great, Dorian and Chaol are best friends and different in more than one way but also impossible to decide who you like most...and when you put both of them and Celaene together is brilliant.
I recommend this book if you like a story that has action, adventure, magic, mystery and romance.
When you're close to the end, all moves faster, you can't stop reading and let you wanting more and more of this universe, luckily we have a few more books in the saga. 

"In the garden, the Captain of the Guard stared up at the young woman's balcony, watching as she waltzed alone, lost in her dreams. But he knew her thoughts weren't of him.She stopped and stared upward. Even from a distance, he could see the blush upon her cheeks. She seemed young—no, new. It made his chest ache. Still, he watched, watched until she sighed and went inside. She never bothered to look below."

Can't believe January is already gone...must say has been a productive month and a good start of the year. 

My favs of this month are:


This month I fell completely in love with Red Queen universe and I can't wait for having in my hands the next episode in this adventure.


This a difficult one...have tried quite a few new products and I have love each of them but I will pick Skinesis Overnight Facial.


January hasn't been specially productive in this area but I will choose my new bag from Bimba&Lola. Is comfortable, cute and not too big. 


Unfortunately this month I haven't managed to travel anywhere...


In this section I will say Star Wars Episode VII (I know was released in December 2015 but I've watched it again in New Year's Day) and tv shows...I'm so happy with the adaptation of Shadow Hunters. The movie was terrible (in my opinion) but the tv show is great at the moment. 


Spotify has been quite busy this month but this song has always made me feel good, Cheap Thrills by Sia


Another section that hasn't been very productive...but I have started yesterday my early access to Bravely Second, is a spacial demo and I love it. 

 What will you pick as your favourites?
