I always take random pictures of sunsets - March '15

So I came across an article that talked about this girl who was challenging herself 100 Days Without Fear. I totally relate with her. I'm one of those people who dread change, I panic as soon as I notice I'm getting out of my comfort zone. I think it's very brave of her to do this challenge. Some things she does may seem normal and nothing out of the extraordinary for others, but even if a fear is small, overcoming it is a big step.

Why be afraid?


Literally. The image above is a reflection of my patio. Today Lima woke up to a gray and rainy morning. The beginning of winter perhaps? So the reason why I have started this blog is a bit confusing to explain. Before, I had a blog on Blogger that started back in 2012. At first I'd just share random things and I didn't post often. After some time, I started focusing more on the whole "lifestyle" topic. I haven't deleted it yet, I'm surely not planning to.

Let's start with a reflection



Hello! Today I'll be sharing a few makeup products from Japan. I didn't travel there, but my mom's friend lives in the outskirts of Tokyo, and a few months ago when she came to visit, she brought these. The eyeshadows with the heart shaped palettes have become part of my go-to makeup routine. The colors are soft and shimmery. Take a look at the pictures!

These are good for smokey eyes. It's from the brand Kose Visse. (I didn't find their official website).

Gold Palette by the brand KATE

Lipgloss from KATE

Saving the best for last. They're by the brand Shiseido Integrate, but I wasn't able to find their official site either.

Japan Makeup


Hello there! So a while back I bought the Organix Macadamia Oil Shampoo and the Organix Argan Oil Conditioner. Although it states in the back of both bottles that it's preferable to use the products of the same line, I ended up buying different ones because they weren't available at the store the day I purchased them. Before getting started, I think it's important to share my hair type, since the results of hair products tend to vary from one person to another. My natural hair would a a Type 2B Wavy Curly with a mix of some 2C Wavy Whirly. Last year I got the Brazilian straightening treatment. However, I feel like my curls still haven't returned back to normal completely.

Anyway, I became interested in the brand Organix because all of their products have natural ingredients. Last year, before getting the straightening treatment, I tried out their Coconut Milk Mousse which I did not like -- it dried out my hair. But a couple of months ago I started searching for reviews on their shampoos, and many people recommended it. Hence, I ended up buying it.
Curiosity killed the cat, or didn't it?
