SAYING GOODBYE TO 2016 AND TO THE BLOG

This is not only the last post of 2016 but it's also the last post of "Riana". No, I'm not leaving this amazing world of blogging, I'm just moving. I wasn't happy with this blog anymore: the design, the name, the content I was producing so I took a break and decided I wanted a fresh start. I've prepared a new blog, with a new design, new name and new content! Tomorrow the first post will be out and I couldn't be more excited! I honestly hope you love it because I spent a while working on it. I'm moving all my followers from this blog to the new one so nobody will miss a thing, I just hope Bloglovin' cooperates with me in this one! The name of my new blog is "A Bittersweet Diary" and it has a matching URL!! Something this one didn't have.

HAVE AN AMAZING 2016 AND HOPEFULLY SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE

BLOGMAS #24: MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE


It's finally it! Blogmas are now over which means today is Christmas Eve! I couldn't be more excited and sad at the same time! I'm really happy that it's finally Christmas Eve but I'm also a bit sad that it's almost over and then we will have to wait another year until we can have Christmas dinner and open our little presents! I hope all of you have the best Christmas and that you enjoy this day more than any other day :) MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Ombré Christmas NailsI might be extremely busy but I had to do my nails for Christmas! I think red and glitter screams "CHRISTMAAAAS!" and that's what I had planned but I failed! Who minds? It's still Christmas!

BLOGMAS #21: YOU KNOW IT'S CHRISTMAS WHEN

A week or two before Christmas you actually start realising how close we are to one of the most special days of the year and even though Christmas Eve and Christmas Day go really quickly, the run up to Christmas is one of the craziest times of the year.

THE SUNDAY POST #4: MY UNI EXPERIENCE AFTER 3 MONTHS

I think going to University is a scary experience for everyone at first and even though I feel a lot more calm and comfortable now, I still worry about somethings that will be happening in the future: EXAMS.

BLOGMAS #20: AFFORDABLE CHRISTMAS EVE MAKEUP

Christmas is the time to take time with your makeup and be even more beautiful! I wanted to create a look that would be simple to make and most of all affordable as not everyone can afford expensive and luxurious products. None of the products used were more than 10€ except for one: the lipstick *cheeky face*

BLOGMAS #18: THE BEST OF 2015

It’s almost the end of the year and I always do a reflection on how I did, what new things I’ve accomplished and what I need to improve next year. This year was one of those full of changes and new exciting things. I’m sharing 5 today!

BLOGMAS #17: 5 DIYS TO TRY THIS CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY

I think the title says it all right? This year I'm so excited for Christmas I wish I had the time to try all the cute Christmas DIYs out there but unfortunately I'll be studying for exams. However, that doesn't mean that you can't give these a try!

BLOGMAS #15: WINTER MORNING MAKEUP

If we can’t wear a bold lipstick at this time of the year, when can we? I feel like Winter is the perfect time to be bold and Christmas is the perfect reason to! These days I’ve been doing the same makeup look and it might seem that it takes me a long time but it actually doesn’t!

BLOGMAS #13: CONFESSIONS OF A BLOGGER

Whether we like it or not, the blogging world is full of clichés and assumptions about what’s right or wrong and most of us, including me, follow that line even though we not always feel that way. It’s not about the amount of followers. But who doesn’t smile a little whenever new people follow your blog? I do. It’s time to confess a few things.

BLOGMAS #12: A NIGHT IN THE CITY | PORTO

Something I find very relaxing is walking around the city at night at this time of the year as the Christmas lights are all on and everyone seems to be feeling incredibly festive. This year couldn't be different and last Thursday I went for a walk.

BLOGMAS #11: THE CHRISTMAS BEAUTY EDIT

When Christmas comes everyone wants to feel special, wear special clothes, wear golden eyeshadow, bold lips and cute nails and have a pamper routine every now and then. I’ve chosen some of my favourite products and colours to wear at this time of the year and hopefully you’ll feel a little bit more festive!

BLOGMAS #10: THE PERFECT BLUSH FOR WINTER TIME

Winter makeup is probably my favourite of all the seasons as I can always rock a bit of eyeliner and red lipstick while on Summer I usually go for a more subtle eye and lips. For those days when I don’t apply eyeliner I feel like I need something else to complete the look. I love blush but I feel like the blush I used to go for on Summer isn’t the greatest for this time of the year so I went haunt for another one.

BLOGMAS #9: THE CHRISTMAS WISHLIST 2015

I don’t think I could go through the Christmas season without doing a wishlist! Seriously for me is just so much fun search on store’s websites or even discover new things on your blogs and compile everything into a big (or maybe not that big) Christmas Wishlist! My boyfriend loves it too as this way he will know everything I want while I have to turn myself into a witch and guess.

BLOGMAS #8: WHAT TO DO LISTS CAN DO FOR YOU

Most of us aren’t full time bloggers which means we have to organise our time between work/school, blogging and having a social life. Besides, don’t forget you’re human and you still need to eat and sleep even though sometimes we kind of neglect that part of our life. Having a list of the things I need to do always makes me feel more productive and organised.

BLOGMAS #7: BLACK FRIDAY MINI MAKEUP HAUL

BLOGMAS #5: A DAY WITH ME | FIRST YOUTUBE VIDEO

I think many of us really enjoy watching YouTube videos or reading lifestyle related posts because we love to see what others have been doing and how they spend their days. At least I do anyway!

BLOGMAS #4: CHRISTMAS INSPIRED NAILS

Not having time to always do nails is something I’m quite sorry about but defining my priorities is something I really need to do so most of the times nails don’t go to second place but to tenth or more. With Christmas coming and me doing Blogmas I knew I had to find a little time to give my nails and Christmas touch and this was the final result!

BLOGMAS #3: MAKEUP REVOLUTION ULTRA 32 SHADE EYESHADOW PALETTE IN FLAWLESS | REVIEW



Why so late to the game? I’m not sure but I know I should’ve got this palette soon! I’ve been wanting to get my hands on the Makeup Revolution Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette in Flawless (they could have chosen a bigger name clearly) but there was always something holding back. I finally got is as an “early Christmas present” for myself and I’m really glad I did.

BLOGMAS #2: THE CHRISTMAS TAG

The Christmas Tag - Christmas Decorations
What better way to start the Christmas season by answer a few fun questions about it? I feel like tags are always a nice way to start a new season or festive holiday and I have to admit Christmas is by far my favourite!

BLOGMAS & CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY

This is my second Christmas as a blogger and if last year I was still a little bit lost and didn’t connect with the blogging world at all, this year I feel a lot more integrated and ready to enjoy all the things this season has to offer. It does actually feel like Christmas around here as all the decorations are already on everywhere and it’s freaking freezing.
