My 20 Favorite Cruelty-free Products Of 2020 (Part 2: Makeup)

My 20 Favorite Cruelty-free Products Of 2020 (Part 2: Makeup)

Hi guys! Yesterday I talked about my top 10 skincare, body and hair products of the year, and now it’s time to talk about my favourite part: makeup! Many of us used quarantine to get better and more creative with makeup, while others left it aside because face masks turned it into a nightmare. And I completely understand! I also struggled with it sometimes. But I learnt to find comfort and routine in doing my makeup every now on then, even if I was going to take it off 15 minutes after taking the photos. The way we approach it has changed so much and the products have consequently adapted to our needs… and so have my favourites of the year!

My 20 Favourite Cruelty-free Products of 2020! (Part 1: Skincare, Hair and Body)

Hi guys and merry (late) Christmas! I hadn’t had the chance to say it yet. It’s been a really busy month with Blogmas, studies and planning (a really weird) gifts and small family gatherings, but it’s finally time I do my favourites of the year. I will be separating them in two posts, in which I’ll mention my 10 favourites for skincare, bath and hair; and then my 10 favourites for makeup. My 20 favourite cruelty-free products of the year, then. This one’s to ending 2020 the right way!

Blogmas Day 18: 4th Year Blog Anniversary / 4º Aniversario del Blog

Blogmas Day 18: 4th Year Blog Anniversary / 4º Aniversario del Blog

English

Hi everyone! Today is December 18th, and it’s a very special day for me because it’s the anniversary of this blog and the anniversary of the very first post I wrote. This means… it’s been 4 years of Flaw Decay! I find it crazy that this blog started as a class project and ended up being a very important part of my life. Thanks to it, I’ve met incredible and talented people and I’ve been able to express myself and one of my great passions: makeup. I’ve worked really hard in the last few years to bring quality content that I believe in, with honest reviews, and to show you the best cruelty-free products.

Blogmas Day 17: Why I love or hate Xmas / Por qué me gusta u odio la Navidad

Blogmas Day 17: Why I love or hate Xmas / Por qué me gusta u odio la Navidad

English

Hi guys! I hope you’re all doing well. Lately I’ve been spending most of my days in front of the computer: studying programming, writing my final degree project, the posts… you get the idea. It’s pretty stressful, even if I really enjoy it. And you know what? The way Christmas makes us forget stress and worries, even if just for a moment, is one of the many reasons why I love it. Today I will talk about some of them, and also about the parts that I don’t like!

Blogmas Day 16: Christmas Recipe or Favorite Food / Receta o Comida Navideña Favorita

Blogmas Day 16: Christmas Recipe or Favorite Food / Receta o Comida Navideña Favorita

English

Hi guys! For today’s Blogmas, the topic is one of my favorites: food! I genuinely can’t get enough of it during this season, and I love many traditional and modern approaches to Christmas cooking. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to prepare a festive recipe. I’ve been working on my final degree project and programming course, so I’ve kept the cooking very low-key and simple for the most part. But I did find some really delicious Christmas food… keep reading to find out about that!

Blogmas Day 15: Christmas Lights in Barcelona / Luces de Navidad en Barcelona

Blogmas Day 15: Christmas Lights in Barcelona / Luces de Navidad en Barcelona

English

Hi guys! And welcome to the 15th day of Blogmas. Today’s post is about my city, Barcelona, and it’s pretty lights. I love walking around town with my dog, Lana, while listening to music and looking at them as the sun is setting. This year I haven’t had the chance to do it as much as I would normally, but it still warms my heart like a good cup of hot chocolate!

Keep scrolling to see the pictures I’ve taken so far of Las Ramblas, Plaça Catalunya, and Gran Via

Blogmas Day 14: Christmas Travel Throwback / Viajes en Navidad

Blogmas Day 14: Christmas Travel Throwback / Viajes en Navidad

Hi guys! How’s it going? Today’s Blogmas post is all about travel. Traveling is one of my favorite things in the entire world, and even though lockdown has made it impossible for us to travel like we used to (in my some areas of my country we can barely move across cities for security reasons), I’ve been reminiscing a lot about the cities I’ve been lucky enough to visit in the past. Every year since I was 14 years old, my parents would take me and my brother to a different city in early December. We’ve visited local places as well as big cities like London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Prague and Oporto! Last year, during my stay in the UK, I also visited Edinburgh, Manchester and London (for the second time) with one of my best friends during the wintertime.

Hi guys! How was your week? In today’s 13th Blogmas (how quickly time passes!) we are going to talk about a topic that I’ve always liked, but it wasn’t until recently that I started to take seriously: essential oils. I already have two Christmas favorites from the Young Living brand.

Blogmas Day 11: Then vs Now / Día 11: Antes y Ahora

Blogmas Day 11: Then vs Now / Día 11: Antes y Ahora

English

Hi guys! And welcome to my 11th post of Blogmas. To some of you, this title might sound a bit bizarre. It’s a bit personal, actually, and definitely up for interpretation. But for me it has a more specific meaning: nearlycrispi recently proposed a challenge with three prizes to redo one of our older looks and see how we’d do. I liked the idea very much; aside from the fact that she was the hosting the giveaway (and yesterday I found out I won one of the prizes!), I think it’s a good way to see how far we’ve come and to test ourselves. I re-did an eyelook from 2018, one of my favorites to date back then. Keep reading to see the change!
