Hello my lovely readers! I want to talk about last night, and what a night!
So yesterday I went to the L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Fashion Night event at the Time Out Market in Lisbon.
It was every blogger, fashionista, TV personality and trendsetter dream event!
It all started at 7 pm; at the entrance we were received with a team of hairstylists ( that gave us useful hair advice) and pretty pink robes to start the pampering process.
STEP 1: HAIR
The party had 3 main steps: hair, makeup, and a mini photoshoot!
I was given the option to choose between 12 hairstyles, from braids to buns and waves.
I chose the timeless beach waves done by José.
STEP 2: MAKEUP
As I waited in line I met a lot of girls that wanted to be bloggers too, we drank cocktails and chit chatted along to the beat.
It was finally my turn and I went for a very light, natural makeup, the lady showed me this new L’Oreal mascara which I totally recommend now: the L’Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Hippie mascara. It works wonders!
STEP 3: PHOTOSHOOT
Girl when you get all glamed up you better take a pic! The final step was to get to the photographer to do a mini shoot of three pics to enter a giveaway for a chance to win an invitation to Lisbon Fashion Week!
People, I am not photogenic at all but a girl can dream, and I still wish to win that invitation ahaha.
Oh, I almost forgot, at the exit they gifted my this new L’Oreal Hair Texturizer.
The event was impecable, filled with happy and fashion-forward people. I made so many new friends and had the best time. Thank you for this awesome experience, L’Oreal Portugal. Xoxo, The Bronde.

Hello again pretty people! So… today I went to PRIMARK (finally) and got some VERY INEXPENSIVE goodies from there. Like, for real!
So without further to do, here are some useful things that I got.
1. The Real MVP
I cannot stress this enough, it’s half the price of the ones from Sephora (the small ones)! It comes full and it smells a-ma-zing. I usually wash my hair every day and this is my life saver, it saves me time and my highlights also.
2. The Festival Must-have
Ok so I needed a cute backpack ’cause I’m heading to NOS Alive this year (the hype is real) and I’m so happy I got this cheap bag!! It was only 5€! It has pockets, it’s has a lot of space and it is sooo cute!! Cute + practical = it’s a win win! Aaand I also wanted that red bandana hehe.
3. Here comes the Sun-nies
I actually got these from H&M, I couldn’t find them anywhere and when I saw them at the store… well… it was love at first sight. They’re not as cheap as the ones from Primark but they are better in quality.Still, I’m disappointed with H&M because their fabric got worse and pricey. That’s why I only bought this! (Great sunnies though).
4. Aloha Beaches
It’s all about the colour of happiness, this is actually a bikini bag but I’ll totally use it to keep my phone and sunnies away from the sand. Look at it, so inexpensive, so pretty, so yellow. It is also pretty big. Perfect!
5. Hot Sandals
I always try on shoes before buying them to test the quality, these took me by surprise because I thought the quality would not be great, but they are actually pretty solid and comfortable!
6. Fresh face all day
It is always important to put your skin first, specially mantaining it fresh and hydrated! It is a cheap emergency solution. I tried one of them today, girl, it made my pores happy.
So: 19.75€ in TOTAL. For all of the things I got at Primark!
H&M: 6.99€ for the cool sunnies.
TIP OF THE DAY
Shop SMART this summer. I went to primark with a list of what I actually needed on my phone. And guess what, I found all of the things at a great price.
Girls picture what you want, put it in a list, and look in many stores ’till you find the BEST deal!
Another great tip is to follow me on my personal insta: gabivelazquezc and tell me in which festivals you’ll go this summer! Hope to see one of you at NOS
