Buttery & Creamy Lip Glosses: Pupa Owl 4 Makeup






I tried all the makeup that comes in the Pupa Owl 4. I made a look using only the products that come in it except for foundation, brow pencil, and mascara. 



It ended up being such a fun video to film. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did filming it.

It's a bit chatty but I think you'll like this one. The lip glosses are so creamy and such good quality! I remember now why I like this Italian makeup brand so much.

All products will be linked in the description box of my YouTube channel.

Huevos Rellenos: Equally Easy & Delicious



Why do I wait for a whole year to make this dish is beyond my understanding. It's one of my favorites and it's so easy to make that I literally can't think of a good reason. That's it. I'm making them more often.

It's one of the cold foods that I referred to in my Christmas video and that is a staple here in Argentina around that time of the year.

To make Huevos Rellenos you'll need:

Eggs
Tuna
Mayonnaise 
Honey Mustard

You'll see the process in this vlog because I made them and took them to my parents' house for our family's Christmas Dinner. I hope you enjoy also the views Buenos Aires streets.

On Bob Hairstyles







There's just something about a good old bob hairstyle that makes me keep going back to this haircut.

This time, my hairdresser nailed the back. Finally! It took 3 tries. Being "bamboozeled" three times requires a lot of "bob" drive, I say! I kept returning to his chair but he finally understood what I wanted.

First of all, it's so comfortable! My hair just loves this cut. It's easy to manage and to maintain. Plus, if you are lucky enough to have a good hairstylist at hand, it requires little to no styling.

In this video I give you my hair care tips and I properly show you the new cut. I hope you like it!

What Goes On Behind The Scenes When Filming YouTube Videos?




































*My nail polish in the picture above*

If you haven't filmed before you may wonder what happens before and after the actual filming of a video.

Well, what goes on is pretty simple. You basically clean the house, tidy up, and prepare the background of your video. Then have a shower, dress accordingly, do your hair and makeup, and then you are free to film. 

The thing is that all this takes quite a lot of time! Especially if you are a manicure freak like me and can't film a video unless you have freshly applied nail polish. A different nail color for every video...yup! We all have issues, you know?

Have a watch!

P.S. If you've been considering filming but haven't yet taken the plunge, share below. I'd gladly help. It's a lot of fun!

On Giveaway Results







As you can see, I chose a winner for my Christmas giveaway over on YouTube, and this was so exciting. 

Last week, I did the Rafflecopter drawing and somebody else won. I contacted her, but she never got back to me. So, I decided to redo the drawing the old fashion way (aka names-on-paper-then-toss-in-cute-bowl-way).

I didn't realize how excited I was about the Australian lady that won until I edited the video. Let me just say that I can deliver a high pitched voice..yikes! 

Anyways...here it is...it was fun. Congrats to the winner!!

Quick & Easy Smokey Eye


The local forecast predicts a high of 38 C today. So you can imagine how grateful I am for the pool! 

The day I filmed this video I was having a "pool hair day". I was literally melting but I managed to create a smokey eye using the beautiful Brown Script by MAC, along with the products pictured above. (Please find the links in the description box below the video on YouTube).



I hope you enjoy the video! 

Are you a smokey eye kind of person? Or do you prefer a classic cat eye? I find that a smokey eye can be so much easier to achieve than a winged line!

A Skin Care Power Duo by Lancome



Ever since my first favorites video on YouTube I haven't stopped raving about this moisturizing cream by Lancôme.

First of all, the scent is divine. Second of all, it hydrates your skin while leaving it plump and healthy looking. Combine that with your Lancôme Genifique treatment applied beforehand and you are set for a skin care success.

At the risk of sounding repetitive, let me say that this combo (shown below in the video) has brighten up my skin. I've been applying both consistently for a little over two weeks and I'm already seeing good results. 

Have you tried Genifique? What about Hydra zen? 

Merry Christmas!! Happy Holidays!!
