Goodbye Summer OOTD & Vlog (from Bibione Beach, Italy!)

Hi lovelies!

Summer 2013. is behind us, we're heading towards colder months...
I'm a true lover of the warm weather, sunshine, and summer is definitely my favourite time of the year!

If I could live somewhere where it's always summer weather, I would never get bored of it and I would never wish for winter and colder days, I promise!

Everytime I have to say "Goodbye" to Summer, it breaks my heart a little bit...
This year, I had an amazing summer so it was even more difficult to let it go! (there's not much one can do about it, though...)

In honour of the Summer and as a thank you to all the joy it gave me, just by being "Summer", I made this "artsy" (...kind of)OOTD video...

I hope you'll enjoy watching & don't forget to press one big "thumbs up" for summer joys! ;)

Did you "celebrate" it in any way?

Summer was fun, but we have to move forward! That's life!
What excites me about Autumn?

Shiseido Benefiance Anti Wrinkle Cream Review

Hi beauties!

I have discovered another awesome beauty product & I don't want to keep this a secret, so I'm going to share my review with you!


I'm always on a lookout for the best under eye cream...I always dedicate a lot of care to that delicate area of my skin, because I know the signs of aging, fatigue or stress, are first going to be visible there!
Over the years I have tested out some really great products for under eye skin care (one of them, that I still use a couple of nights a week, is 100% pure argan oil, 100% pure jojoba oil, and some luxurious creams such as L'Occitane Imortelle Precious Eye Balm, Clinique All About Eyes, Lierac Diopticalm etc.; the list goes on & on...)

My recent discovery is Shiseido (I always loved Shiseido products for my skincare!), and it's a very luxurious, rich in texture, under eye cream, for mature skin.
My skin isn't "mature" (I'm 32), so why did I get this cream then?
I bought it because I wanted a luxurious under eye treatment, that I would use on an occasions (once or twice a week, or in the periods when I feel my skin is a little bit more stressed out, dehydrated, and my fine under eye lines, more visible.)

If you're a teenager, or in your early/mid twenties, you really don't need to use this cream. Shiseido has got other great under eye creams, more suitable for your age.

If you're in your thirties (as I am), don't use this cream on a daily basis, your skin might get too used to it! Try to alternate it to other creams (hydrating/ lighter texture formulas). Use this product as a skin's recovery treatment, when you feel it's needed! 

If you're in your mid forties, stepping into fifties, this is the perfect product for you! An under eye cream that will be your ally and that you'll enjoy using on a daily basis, mornings and night.

Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti- Wrinkle Eye Cream

An ultra rich age-defense eye cream that protects skin from a harsh, dehydrating environment and dramatically minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and lines to promote a youthfully smooth, radiant look.
My under eye skin feels softer, smoother and it looks more radiant after applying this cream.
The texture is very rich, but it absobrs really well & quickly (remember, it's a concentrate, so a little goes a long way!)
All the fine lines are instantly less visible!

How does it work?

- Utilizes advanced emulsification technology to provide superb delivery of exceptional moisture to renew skin's supple, dewy-moist feel.

- Developed with Shiseido exclusive Anti- Photowrinkle System consisting of aquatic plant extract Chlorella to counteract the appearance of future wrinkles. (Chlorella promotes higher TSP-1 protein levels in epidermal cells. This protein helps maintain elastin fibres that keep skin resilient and firm.)

- Contains Hydroxyproline, a high- technology amino acid that parallels skin's own natural building blocks and helps natural collagen production.

This cream will also work in preventing wrinkles and fine lines, as it improves skin's elasticity.

Since I'm using this cream, I feel my under eye area is looking better and smoother.
I only use this cream once or twice a week, and the results are still visible!

If you have more mature skin, apply this cream each morning and night (as the last step in your skincare routine).
To ensure product purity, use specially provided spatula when removing cream from jar.
Pick up a little bit of product from the jar with your spatula (remember, a little goes a long way!), then, using fingertips smooth gently over eye area.

If you'd like to learn more about this eye cream (& my impressions), check out my review video:

I hope this review was helpful!
Let me know, have you ever tried anything from Shiseido?

If you have any requests for my future reviews, don't hesitate to let me know!

Besides the beautiful colours, I was also won over by the material of these clothing's really a great quality and it just looks and feels very chic!

This year, I was pretty adventurous, I didn't just lay on the beach all day long (actually, I never do that!), but I was way more active, and went exploring the island where I vacationed (the island of Rab).

Tons of things happened in my vlogs, I tried to make them as interesting as possible for you guys! :)

I really hope you'll enjoy watching!
