How was your week? Mine was fast. Maybe because here in Portugal we had a holiday (5th October). It was so good to stay at home, I had so many duties to do, some throat pain … can you imagine how good it was?! (being ironic here) I probably stayed more time on the couch that doing my duties at home but at least I still had the weekend (happy to say that I did everything I had to do)!
You know, I’m always saying that seeing these new things we talk about here are better than a yoga class, so I needed to see if that was real. Finally I went to a yoga class. I’m not going to talk about the bearded, topless man that was beside me (and how his shorts were soo short) but I will tell you that I full acknowledge that time passes more slowly in a yoga class than anywhere else on earth (every time I looked at the clock it was 20 minutes earlier than I expected). But, I will comeback this week. I full intent on deciding what is better and what calm me more (I have anxiety, always had, probably always will).
As you probably noticed, I’m always rambling, so please bear with me, and let’s move on to our segment.
This week, we chose Beauty Bay* as our website! What I liked about this website is that they make deliveries to almost every country and they have a page full of new things of almost every brand we know. I never made an order from this website because I think that their customs are a little expensive (sometimes they have great promotions), but I’m very curious on seeing how they package the order and how much time they take to make the deliveries. I already see some things that I want.
Here’s our picks…
* we don’t receive nothing from the websites we choose.

# Stila One Step Prime 30 ml – €26.40
I’m still searching for a good primer. Normally I use my Hangover but lately I feel that I need to try others. I did. But I still didn’t find one that sweeps away my feet.
Stila One Step Prime allows for perfect foundation application, creating a clear, smooth base. Filling pores and fine lines, the swirled, helix serum uses skin-conditioning silicones to enhance the complexion and prolong makeup wear. The Silicones are the only thing that I’m not comfortable.

A pro is the fact that it contains 15 vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
