As some of you may know, I turned 27 last week! It’s crazy, the older I get the younger I feel…But I won’t go too deep about it!
To celebrate my birthday I didn’t do anything fancy, just spent the day in Milan with one of my oldest friends and it was all about eating and shopping.
It’s not really a haul but this sushi was so good it deserves a special mention. If you happened to be in Milan and craving sushi, Fukurou is the place to be. Apparently you have to book in advance if you want to score a table in the evenings because it’s jam-packed and I can totally see why. The sushi was so fresh, it literally melts in your mouth. I usually don’t even like raw tuna but man oh man was it delicious! Since it was my birthday we tried a couple of desserts and have to say the Matcha Pudding – of which I am in no way a fan, was really good and refreshing.
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – I was glad to be able to find Laura Mercier at La Rinascente, as I recently finished my previous tube of Hydrating Primer. The guy at the counter told me they are re-formulating the Hydrating and Oil-Free formulas so I decided to try the Original formula. So far I am liking it, it’s very similar to the Hydrating formula and lighter than the one with SPF in which is a bit too thick for my likings.
& Other Stories Nail Polish in Gladstone Emerald – I first spotted this colour back in December and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. You know I like nail polish that are a bit black – not black nail polish, like Essie’s Afterschool Boy Blazer, and since Christmas time I was looking for the perfect green and now I’ve found it! It’s my first & Other Stories nail polish and I have to say I’m really impressed! The brush is awesome and the colour is opaque not streaky at all, you could do with just one coat. Granted I feel like Sailor Jupiter when I wear it and I couldn’t love it more!
Fairy Drops Quattro Mascara – finally my Beauty Bay order has arrived just in time for my birthday! I am still giving the mascara a whirl and it’s a strange one. Somedays I’m not too impressed by it, but some other days it gives my lashes length for days. So far, I don’t see what the fuss is about, maybe the waterproof formula is better than the original? Let me know in the comments!
