Every summer there is a couple of weeks where I decide to knock of the lively holiday life and just relax myself in our little house at the lake.
No alarms admitted, which means I can wake up at 11 o'clock with no need to apologize.
There's just one rule: "Do whatever you like" with a little exception for some homework session because, you know, it's probably time I get my hands on it or I'll go to school empty-handed in September.
These days let me regain my strength and get ready for summer round two.
Yes, 'cause we still have A MONTH till autumn comes, right? *Talks to autumn-nostalgics*

The White Nail Polish That Just Needs Two Coats

Best White Nail Polish

Best White Nail Polish

Despite everyone (apart from me) begging autumn to come, we're still in the middle of the summer, which means time to show off your bright nails!
The white nail polish seems to be one of this summer's most popular trends and I'm not gonna lie, I have to say that I really really like it. 
It just gives my nails that fresh, neat look but still very classy indeed. Plus, it literally matches with everything, so that you don't actually have to care about your toes colour or the clothes you're going to wear.

It has, though, a few downsides, like for example the fact that the most of white polishes on the market often need more than three/four coats. I have always loved essie's nail polishes, but I couldn't get on really well with their Tuck It In My Tux one, an ivory shade, since I had to apply five coats to have a good result. And although I liked the final effect, it was a bit too long for me.
Another risk you might come across with this kind of shades, is that if you distract a second , you can mess things up really bad.

However, I have found the one. It's from Flormar, an Italian-born brand, which now has a few shops all over the world.
Anyway, I'm talking about their nail polish in the shade n. 400 Bright White.  It is incredible, seriously. It just needs two coats, as it's highly pigmented, dries very quickly and with a base and a coat lasts me up than six days. The only bearable weakness could be the brush, not as dynamic as the essie one, due to its round shape.

As you may have got, it's a very strong love relationship between this nail polish and me, although I'm still looking for a more international alternative to report. Any suggestion?

Let me know in the comments what's your favourite colour to wear on your nails in this season and stay tuned for many other summer-related posts - 'cause autumn is not around the corner yet ...

One month late, but you know, better late than never. 
After my holiday in Formentera (where I also filmed a video), I spent two days in Madrid. I was actually supposed to stay there for four days, but the departure for Bulgaria was accidentally anticipated, so I'd had to leave a few days before.
However, I can say I have visited quite a lot of the city, and I have absolutely LOVED it. 
Sometimes it reminded me of Paris, with those huge buildings all around the city and wide boulevards… But at the same time, everything is more geometrical and simple.
Before getting there, I was afraid it wasn't going to worth it, since everybody talks about Barcelona rather than Madrid, but then it turned out to be one of my favourite places.

My Voluntary Work Experience

August 07, 2015

Belene, Bulgaria


Maybe you've missed the fact that I've been disconnected from the world for about ten days since I was in Bulgaria with my youth group. I've been trough such an amazing journey that I decided to make a video all about that.
In fact, I have worked as a volunteer helping people from this very poor town renovating their houses, schools and even an internation camp. 
The whole experience made me understand two important things: what really matters in life and why charity is not just something you do for the others but also for feeling better yourself.
You can watch the full video here.
Enjoy!
