Too Faced – Pretty Little Planner

Hello everyone,

As you can see in my last post I´m back!!! I´m back to the blog and with some YouTube videos, so please if you can check that out and leave me some comments, your YouTube channel and of course please click the like button.

I have a few posts ideas and hopefully the ideas keep coming 🙂 and today I´m sharing swatches from the Holiday gift set 2017 from Too Faced.



I talked about it on my shopping haul video and like I promised I´m giving you my first impressions and swatches.

I bought mine in Debenhams Ireland and cost me 36.90€ on a sale event ( was 41€).

It´s a lovely wallet with a skinny planner but very cute, with a sheet with stickers to add to the planner, a mini Better Than Sex mascara and of course a palette with matte & shimmers eye shadows.



My first impressions are they are quite good… a few misses in my opinion and of course I don’t understand much of makeup, but this is my personal opinion.




Lighter shades are a little patchy but still very good – (Secret Santa is a little bit patchy and less pigmented).

They feel smooth and blending well, but I need to test on my eyeballs 🙂

Here are the swatches 🙂


          1- Good Girl / 2- Rise & Shine / 3- Why Not?

 4- White Christmas/ 5-Secret Santa/ 6- Silent Night/  7- Werkshop



 8- Coffee First/ 9- Snooze U Lose/ 10-God As Gold/ 11- Dollhouse/

12- Wrap It Up/ 13- Break The Ice/ 14- Elfie Selfie/ 15- Booville


The mini mascara…. I´m never impressed with this mini ones, I´m not sure if its because its the travel size.. but they don’t wow me at all. I like better others budget friendly  mascaras than this one, but this is my honest opinion.

Finally the mini planner… it´s cute, it´s thin and perfect for our bags. I never used planners before last year and ohhhhh my God…. game changer!!! So much easy to keep my records( I always think I will remember things and then it´s a no, no)

Overall I really like this gift set… more than the other that I bought last year.

Thank you so much for stopping by,

I´m back with news!!!! The Barbrites!!!

FotoJet8 (2)

Life can be really busy and I was a fool thinking I was able to do everything, everyday, all the time. But I failed!!! Badly!!!

Many times I was sitting down with my laptop to write here ( putting all my ideas in order) sharing things that I like… but tiredness got the better of me.

However, all this time I was trying to organize myself…my family life, my job, to make sure I was able to spend time creating new things.

Change a few things that no longer made me and my family  happy and so far it´s working ok. We have room for improvements but we will get there.

I´m not a writer ( I suck writing in English), but it will not stop me.

So….. I´m back with some posts and a YOUTUBE channel.

It´s a family YouTube channel….nothing fancy!!! It´s casual… It´s for sharing things with friends and if someone wants to join in… You are more than welcome.

We are the Barbrites!!!!!

Real life, cooking our dishes, our travels, shopping and many more. We are building up our content and learning!!! So much learning!! 🙂

Please keep in mind I´m not young, I´m not fancy, I´m really new on this things and this is real life!!!

I will try to link some posts here with our channel and hopefully I improve my editing, talking to a camera ( it´s so weird).

If you can… pop there, leave me some emoji’s ( you pick). Share tips and give advices… it´s much appreciated.

Thank you for stopping by,

Hello everyone 🙂

I know….. long time since I post.

The true is… life happens ( and fast) and I wasn’t able to think or write a blog post.

I have the ideas… and even know what I want to share……. all my ideas grow when I´m in the shower ( it´s when life slows down and I can think more focused).

Anyway, long story short…… I´m working on a little project now and of course involves the blog as well.

This happens because I made a few changes in my life, in my family life.

Changes are good…. They are scary, yes they are but if we don´t take the risk we never know what we can achieve.

So, please stay around, stay with me and I will have more activity here.

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Happy New Year!!!!



And that’s it … we’ve reached 2017 !!!
I wish many joys to all of you who come here, that 2017 be a year of many achievements, peace,  love and that your dreams will all be fulfilled.
Do you make any plans at this time? Do you make a wish list?
I don´t …. Well…mentally maybe …what I like to achieve but I dont have any planner or so to  write anything (maybe that’s why many of the goals I do not reach) … 😀
Regarding the blog, I will try to create more posts … I will try to be more organized and share more … maybe make a snapchat account and maybe create a YouTube channel (this is still far away). What do you think?

Back to Christmas.. I got a few makeup items… and ohhhh I was so excited!!! Bronzers, lip products, palletes, skincare products, perfumes ( and I love perfumes since…. EVERRRRR) ( I think I really love makeup and I´m afraid to be addicted 😀 )

Share with me your top makeup products and/or yout top Christmas gifts. Love to see yours too.

I´m going now… enjoy your day!!!

I hope you have a fantastic year !!!!
Thank you for stopping by ..
