La Luna Vita Blog

Just like every year, I’m always amused at how fast time passes by. It’s crazy how days become weeks, weeks become months, and --months eventually turn into years. This year has been filled with good moments and surprises in all aspects of my life, both personally and professionally. I would have liked to write more posts, unfortunately I still have to some improvements to make with my time management. Speaking of which, I’ll give you a small hint on what January’s first post will be about: managing your time adequately without an agenda! ‘Cause who doesn’t like to live life on the edge? Just kidding! But I do hope you'll find that post helpful.

A big thank you to all the lovely visitors, you have been an inspiration for keeping up with this work. Any fellow blogger can confirm that although blogging can be fun, it requires times and effort, just like anything else in your life. I have a set of goals for the blog next year. Though it would be fantastic for La Luna Vita to grow as a brand, there is still a *very* long road ahead. However, with enough dedication I’m sure it will be achieved. We’ll see where 2017 takes us.

Happy Holidays! See you next year :)

Recap & Farewell: 2016

La Luna Vita Beauty Blog

Hello! So today I'll be sharing some of the beauty products I've been loving lately. Ever since I started breaking out I began searching for products that could help. I remembered how less is more, which is why was a bit meticulous with what I purchased. Thankfully, I found these two products that I've been using daily. They haven't dried or irritated my skin. The results were visible just a few days afterwards:
  • Eucerin Dermo Purifiyng Cleanser: It is fragrance free, which I found fantastic, since most products are overloaded with perfume ingredients. I use it in the morning and before going to bed. It's a soft cleanser, but it perfectly washes away residue and makeup. 
  • La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo:  This cream contains benzoyl peroxide, it can be applied all over your face or on certain sections. I have been applying it on the areas that had more acne. It was noticeable the reduced size of pimples and redness. I've been using it every night after washing my face with the Eucerin Cleanser.

I had purchased "The Girl On the Train" several months ago, I wanted to know what the bustle was all about. Truthfully, when I first starting reading it, I found it quite boring --to the point that I stopped completely. Weeks passed, and the book was still sitting on my night stand. However, I couldn't just leave a book unread. Good or bad, I like to read either way. I decided to give it another chance and it was worth it.

Don't worry, if you haven't read it or seen the movie, there won't be any spoilers ahead. My reviews are always general. I'm afraid the movie might turn out to be rather disappointing, as it usually happens when novels become films. It's the first mystery/thriller novel I read, I tend to go more for drama. First off, the book is not divided by chapters, it's separated by narratives of three main characters, each with different dates so you can follow the timeline. Reading about the incidents from different perspectives was very enriching and helpful in order to put the pieces together. Around page 60 is when things start getting interesting -- at least for me.

Book Review: The Girl On The Train

Filter: G3 / Filter Intensity: +7 / Brightness: +2 / Contrast: +1

Hello! Several of months ago I made a post on How I Edit My Pictures, explaining that I used two apps: Color Story and VSCO Cam. I mostly wrote about Color Story, an app I had just downloaded and had quickly fallen in love with. But it took a couple of months for me to figure out that the app was not for me.

Although don’t have a consistent Instagram “theme”, I do like to enhance my photographs in order for them to look good together. I’m not afraid of colorful or dark pictures. My intention isn’t for my pictures to be all white and magazine-like. I’m not a professional, but photography has been my favorite hobby since I was 15, which is why I love using Instagram so much.
