I promised myself that this year I was going to post at least twice each month. It's still April, so it seems like I'm still keeping my promises. Anyway, I got so excited when I found out Lana Del Rey had released a new single! I became somewhat obsessed with her music back in 2012. Then, when her songs got leaked and she announced she was going to pause her music project, I was pretty bummed. But not anymore. This song is different than the ones she has done before, but still her style.

Guess what? I finally finished reading Looking for Alaska. I would have finished it before, but due to school work I had to postpone my reading hours. It was a beautiful story, such a bitter sweet sadness. Alaska is a mysterious character, and I did not predict what the "after" part was going to be about, I was surprised. Well, I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it's a book worth reading. The last few pages are my favorite: "We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. [...] But that pat of us greater that the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail." I agree too, our souls are infinite. 

I bought a new nail polish color, I was at the store, saw it and immediately got it. (I tend to be an impulsive shopper, but that's a whole different story).  It's Maybelline's Color Show and the color's name is Brick Shimmer. I like it because it has really small glitters, and the undertone isn't orange, it's rather rose gold except darker. (Also, it dries faster than other nail polishes I own). But that's not captured precisely in the picture below though. Oh well, I tried.

Down on the West Coast

It seems like the weather has started to change. The days remain pretty warm but the nights are now cooler. Good thing, I don't think I was going to be able to tolerate the heat much longer. With school and all, I haven't had much time to continue reading "Looking for Alaska". It a shame that I have to put my recreational reading aside because of schoolwork.

Anyway, I did some changes to my hair. Well, actually just one in particular. Since my hair decided to stop cooperating,  I decided to do the keratin hair straightening treatment. I had already done it last year, but this time the results were better, my is actually straight now. Unlike last year, even though it did tame my frizz, it didn't completely straighten my hair. I know some people don't agree with these types of treatments, but I couldn't think of anything better. The good part is that I save a lot of time each morning when getting ready. I can simply comb my hair and violĂ ! (Btw, being able to comb my hair when dry is pretty awesome). This only lasts for about four months, I'll try to embrace my curls more next time.

Moving on, I haven't done a post related to fashion recently. I won't get too detailed, I just wanted to share some things with you, it's like my autumn/winter wish list.

3. Fall outfit: I really like the leather jacket and the circle knit scarf.

And finally, OPI's Brazil Collection. My three faves are I Sao Paolo Over There, Where Did Suzi's Man-go? and Toucan Do It If You Try. As always, OPI with creative names and amazing colors.
