Coco’s July Favorites

So yes, it seems that it has arrived. That time of the month when I share with you my most used products throughout, in this case, July.

It’s the first time I do this type of post but, oh well, here we go, wohoo 😉 ! 

I’m specifically focused on beauty today, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be like that always. I’ll try my best to put different categories for next time, for sure.


Parece ser que sí, ha llegado esa época del mes. Ésa en la que comparto los productos que más he usado durante, en este caso, julio.

Esta es la primera vez que hago este tipo de post pero allá voy, wohoo 😉 !

Hoy me he centrado específicamente en productos de belleza y cuidado de la piel, pero eso no significa que vaya a ser así siempre. La próxima vez incluiré diferentes categorías, lo aseguro.

1. The Nudes, Maybelline New York

So let’s get started with this gorgeous eyeshadow palette from Maybelline.

I bought it some weeks ago now, and it has been my “go to” palette since then. It has got many different gorgeous nude colours, from shimmery to mat ones. You can use it wether you’re going for a daily make up look or a night out style.


Comenzamos con esta preciosa paleta de sombras de Maybelline.

La compré hace algunas semanas y se ha convertido en mi “go to” desde entonces. Ofrece una amplia variedad de tonos nude, desde los más pigmentados hasta aquellos que son completamente mate. Los puedes usar para conseguir un look de diario, o un estilo más de noche.

2. Dance with me, MAC liquid lipstick

I’ve had this MAC liquid lipstick for a while now. It is a beautiful red velvet colour that I purchased back when I went to Sweden, specifically in Copenhagen airport, in March.

Since that moment I have been using it non-stop. Oh my god, it’s the best liquid lipstick I’ve ever tried! Honestly, it lasts as long as you have it on your lips, doesn’t matter what you eat or drink.


El MAC liquid lipstick forma parte de mi colección de maquillaje desde hace tiempo. Es un color rojo aterciopelado precioso, que conseguí cuando viajé a Suecia, concretamente en el aeropuerto de Copenhague, en marzo.

3. Rose perle, Yves Rocher

This nail polish is so pretty, I personally had never tried Yves Rocher’s nail products but I have to say I’m quite impressed.

Rose perle is a quite light pink colour which fits everything, from jewelry to outfits. I honestly think it goes with everything.


Esta pintura de uñas es súper bonita, personalmente nunca había probado este tipo de productos de la marca Yves Rocher pero tengo que decir que estoy bastante impresionada.

Rose perle es un tono rosa bastante pálido que combina con todo, desde joyería hasta outfits. Yo personalmente creo que es combinable con todo.

4. Rouge allure velvet, Chanel

I’ve talked about this Chanel lipstick on a previous post which, if you want, can check it here 

It’s one of my faves. I think anyone who has tried it, has instantly fallen in love with it.


Ya he hablado sobre este pintalabios de Chanel en un post anteriormente que puedes leer aquí

Es uno de mis favoritos. Creo que cualquiera que lo haya probado, se ha enamorado de él instantáneamente.

5. Apricot fruity scrub, Yves Rocher

Perfect for exfoliate our skin. Getting rid of black spots and dead skin was never as easy.


Perfecto para exfoliar la piel. Eliminar puntos negros y piel muerta nunca fue tan fácil.

6. VB Effector, It’S SKIN

This is the second I’ve been using and it’s almost empty! It’s a serum which leaves my skin so fresh ( but promise, incredibly fresh) and hydrated. It’s meant to be used twice a day if your skin feels so dry, but I use it just before applying foundation. I have to say foundation comes out better than without using VB Effector.


¡Este es el segundo que he utilizado y está casi vacío! Es un sérum que deja mi piel con una sensación de frescor increíble (pero prometido, que frescor increíble) e hidratada. Está pensado para ser utilizado dos veces en un día si la piel tiene una sensación de sequedad muy grande, pero yo lo utilizo solamente antes de aplicar la base de maquillaje. Tengo que decir que el resultado final de la base, es mejor que sin aplicar anteriormente VB Effector.

7. Extra virgin coconut oil, COCOMI

No explanation needed for this, everybody loves it. It’s incredible as a moisturizer, you can use it to try avoid stretch marks, or combat them. There are people who uses it to even cook!


No se necesita explicación para esto, a todo el mundo le encanta. Es un increíble hidratante, puedes usarlo para evitar las estrías o combatirlas. ¡Hay personas que la usan para incluso cocinar!

Hope you’ve liked my July’s favourites. What have you been into this month? I’d love to hear from you 😉 !


Espero que os haya gustado mis favoritos del mes de junio. ¿Qué es lo que más os ha gustado este mes? ¡Me encantaría saberlo 😉 !

Summer Days

Sometimes we just need a break from our everyday routine, forget about our ‘to do list’.

Summer days are synonyms to fun time with family and friends, enjoying the good weather and feeling the vibes, yeah.

I consider myself as an explorer little person who loves discovering new places wether they are big or small. Every place has its own magic and story behind, and that’s what I love about it.

Just like therapy, getting lost in the unknown where you can even find yourself.

There is no need to go abroad or far away from home. Even the closest places can surprise us in a good way, to the point where we find ourselves coming back again and again.

Yes, like an old Spotify playlist, that one we don’t remember but still the one we go back to when we feel like doing it.

The other day I decided to go around Vegueta, a very beautiful and famous place here in Gran Canaria. I honestly had so much fun visiting its old streets and admiring its classical buildings.

I’m definitely going back for another walk and who knows, maybe I discover  a new incredible place 😉 !

I’ve know Lush Cosmetics for a while now and I have to say it’s one of my favourite brands when I talk about bath treatments.

They have a huge variety of products from bath bombs to spa treatments. They also have shampoos and so many different things related with face, hair and body care. In Lush, they have their own make up line apart from having perfumes too.

IMG_5614 IMG_5621

When I went into the shop I didn’t know what to buy, I wanted it all!!

IMG_5624

 I can’t explain how amazing Lush designs are. Every product has its own style and they are all different from the others. Simply incredible.

IMG_5626

Another thing I love from Lush is not just their products, it’s their personnel. They’re all so kind and helpful!!

Even more, if you want to see how any bath bomb is when you put it inside the water, they let you try in the different bowls they have full of water!!

I ended up with a bag full of Lush products to enjoy them at home and I couldn’t be happier 😉

With love, P

Somewhere in Sweden…

Hi everyone!

It’s been such a long time since my last post but here I am writing a new one about a fantastic place where I went some days ago in Sweden.

The place is called Wayne’s Coffee and apart from their delicious chocolate with cream and marshmallows, its decoration makes you feel like you can have a break for yourself and enjoy the moment.

There I met a fantastic photographer called Martin who took all those incredible pics of the place. They couldn’t be better.

Perfect place to read a good book and chill out while drinking a cup of coffee, or maybe take a lot of good pictures!

In the end what it matters is the people you get to share the moment with. They can make the place even more spectacular.

Thank you for the experience 😉

Hi everybody, how’s everything going?

Today I’m talking about Chanel, one of the brands I like the most.

Since some time ago, I’ve been asking for some Chanel cosmetics to start building up my make up collection. Today I can show you some bits I got for Christmas which can be useful for buying someone or just to buy to ourselves at some point.

1.- Rouge Allure Velvet, 38.

That the fact that is red doesn’t stop you from wearing this lipstick during daytime. It’s perfect for any time of the day!

2.- Rouge Noir, 18

This colour is one of my favourite. Some people say it’s just for winter time but, honestly, I can’t help wearing it all year around!

3.- Le Top Coat, Quick Dry and Shine

For the ones who love nail art, here’s the final touch to nail polish. I already tried it and I can’t believe my nails lasted for more than four days now.

4.- Écriture De Chanel, Eyeliner Pen

If you prefer eyeliner pen to the classical one, here’s one option. It last and it’s not difficult to use it.

5.- Rouge Coco Shine, 477

The perfect colour for when we don’t want to wear proper lipstick but still want to wear something in our lips. It’s so moisturising and it last for a long period of time.

6.- Chanel Mirror

Perfect for carrying in our bag and indispensable for checking out our make up!

7.- Signe Particulier, Eyeshadow

From smoky shadows to nude colours, the perfect combination for any occasion.

So that’s it, I hope you liked it and that maybe I helped you find something to add to your collection 😉

With love, P
