REMEMBERING A BEAUTIFUL SOUL...


Today would have been my dad´s 55th birthday. Even though he is not here anymore, I always like to celebrate this date. A year ago I came across this website, its crazy that even if its been almost a decade since he updated it, the website & his space have not been taken down.
I want to share this website with you so you can remember my dad with me by appreciating what he was most passionate about, wood carving!

LIEBSTER AWARD // A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME


 
Hi guys! The other day I was nominated by the lovely Kayleigh from The Sophisticated Shoppe  r for a Liebster award. I was so flattered to know that she thought of me and Head of Roses and it makes me super happy that she nominated me. 

I must say, I have been nominated for a Liebster award in the past; first by the beautiful Darrica  but I ended up forgetting to publish the post. A second time I was nominated by  Aleks & Sophie from Sisterhood of the traveling  WAGs, that time I was in Mexico and even though I intended to write about it after my trip, I ended up forgetting to do it... again!

This third time I had to write it down and make sure to do this post as I am very thankful to the girls who nominated me. I also want to thank all of you who always talk to me on twitter, instagram and leave your comments here on the blog & on youtube. Head of Roses has been a very important part of becoming happier and more confident with who I am. Thank you for being part of it!

Without further due, I will be answering a couple of  questions provided by Kayleigh.

 1) What do you collect more? Shoes, purses, jewellry, or makeup? (If makeup, what do you have most of? i.e. lipsticks, bronzers, blushes...etc.)
Makeup! I have more lip products than what I actually need, also, I have an obsession with nail polish. I have loads of different colours and brands of it.

2) What is your dream career? 
Honestly, I have been changing through the years but I have always been drawn to film, online media and all that jazz. If I could become a full time online content creator and be able to live from it, I would be soo happy!

3) What is your favorite animal? (I'm a huge animal lover, so I'd love to know what your favorite is!)
Its hard to choose between hummingbirds, cats and dogs. The three are amazing creatures, if I have to choose then hummingbird. I love how tiny yet majestic they are, I miss them so much as there aren´t any here in the UK but when I go home its so nice to see them stop by.
  

4) Liquid eyeliner pen/marker, crayon eyeliner, pencil eyeliner, or cream eyeliner (in a pot)? Or all four? 
Liquid marker when I want to invest a lot of time and pencil for a busy day!

5) What is something that is on your bucket list?
I love U2, since forever! I wish I could go and see them live at least once in my life.

6) What place, if any, have you wanted to visit for a long time? Why?  
There are so many places I would love to visit one day. For many years I dreamed of visiting Ireland and lucky I ended up living and studying in the island. Paris is in my top list too, it was such a wonderful experience and I  would love to walk the Parisian streets again!

7) Who's your best friend? Tell me about them! :) 
This is going to sound so cheesy but my best friend is also my boyfriend, Shane. I can talk to him about everything and he supports me unconditionally, we have been through so much and we are the goofiest kids in town! I also have my homeboys and homegirls Edgar, Mike, Maggy & Mony who have shared so many moments with me and we care about each other doesn´t matter the distance or how busy our lives can get!

8) If you could live in a certain time period, which would you live in and why? 
Love this question! I like the 60s & 70s a lot, anytime between those decades would be awesome. I like them both because of the fashion, music & films of those days. 

9) Who is your style icon?
Sophia Loren, Jane Birkin, Fran├žoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot. I can’t choose just one, I just love them so much!

10) Who do you inspire to be in life? (i.e. a role-model, a leader, an innovator, an educator...etc.)
I want to help others to find happiness in their lives, to love their individuality and who they are. I want to help them see that their imperfections make them unique. I also want to make them smile! 

Now its time for me to choose five lovely people to receive the Liebster Award! My nominees are: 

Tarika from Cherryblossom15
Megan from Megan Monroes  

These are my questions for you guys! I have taken a few from Kayleigh, she came up with great questions that had to be included in this post! ^_^

 1)What made you start a blog?

2) What is your favourite animal? Why?

3) Do you have any guilty pleasure songs ?

4) A film that you never get tired of watching?

5)What is something that is on your bucket list?

6) Given the choice of anyone in the world (living or dead) , whom would you want to have dinner with? 

7)Who is your style icon?

8)If you could live in a certain time period, which would you live and why?

9)Are you a collector of anything? 

10) Have you ever had a "now or never" moment?


I would love to read your answers so if I nominated you, please leave a comment with a link to your post! If you are casually reading this post, feel free to answer the questions, leave your answer on a comment so I can get to know you better!

SUN SAVVY // SUPERDRUG DAY CREAM WITH SPF PROTECTION


I recently ran out of my go-to suncream, I never tried any other brands and never really had the intentions to do so but since I cannot find the brand I have used pretty much all my life, I thought it was time for a change. As I have been trying out drugstore makeup products lately, I felt curious to try exploring the wide range of drugstore skin protection too.

Many times I have heard great things about Superdrug products but I have always been a little hesitant to purchase any of their stuff. Why, you ask? I don´t have a clue! Thats why  I made sure to get a couple of their products on my latest trip to the local store.


I thought as I was running low on face moisturiser, I would give their day cream a try! Let me tell you, not only did I fall for the fact that it has vitamin E, which makes my skill feel and look fresh everyday, but it also has SPF 15 which saved me some time looking for a new sun cream and I guess it also saved me some money too.

This day cream has a rich texture leaving my skin feeling instantly awake and staying hydrated throughout the day. It is also surprisingly smooth to blend, absorbs quite easily and without drying out my skin. Two of the most common problems I had with my old SPF cream. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I am happy with how practical it is, saving a few minutes of my morning routine and keeping my skin protected as I have no excuses to skip SPF protection!


Have you tried any Superdrug products? Which are your favourites?
