My Top 10 Favorite Books of 2016

Hi Everyone!

This year is close to end. But I am happy because today I am here for share a post about something that I really care always and that is books. This year I read over 100 books and I feel pretty happy thanks to that. So I decided today share my top 10 of favorite books of this 2016~ I'm going to start in ascending order which means the first three places are going to be my most favorite during the year.

I am need say that I am not going to made a review about each book at this post just share my feelings and say why they are here today.

10
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis


When I started to read this book I was in a very bad moment of my life during this year and I was so sick of everything I found the magic. The true magic inside this book. When I think about Chronicles of Narnia I think about this amazing book. Just an advice If you haven´t read the Chronicles of Narnia before please read this serie in a Cronological order. And yes I know that this is a book for children but I really love it. This is the five book in cronological order but definitely my favorite.

9
The Dagger and the Rose by Renee Ahdieh 



This is my second book in a duology and I really love it.
This book is inspired by One thousand and one nights and I love it everything.

The Winner´s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski


This book was an amazing surprise because I was confused after the end of the previous book. This is a book from trilogy. The end of this book is tattoed in my heart because is so sweet even when the book is very strong.

7
Addicted After All by Krista and Becca Ritchie


This book is the end for two of my favorite couples in all the time LiLo and was super good see how was wrapped their amazing story of love and addictions and this book is pretty deep for those people that were following this serie.
I love it LiLo Forever!

6
The Assasin´s Blade by Sarah J. Maas


This book is a prequel of one of my favorite book series ever Throne of Glass.
And this book consist in a serie of short novells about my favorite character Celaena Sardothien. And show her face like an assasin. This book was so amazing because I have the opportunity to know better some characters and I feel in love and my heart broked. I guess this book is a must read for any fan of Throne of Glass before Empire of Storms (The 5th book in the serie) some scenes I replayed in my mind because from this book were amazing. I have this book in paperback so I´ll be publishing a review soon (I hope).

Now  (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ   The Top 5...

5
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare


From one of my favorite book authors Cassandra Clare. And she started with this new trilogy after 5 years at the story of her previous YA Fantasy series The Mortal Instruments. I must confess that I was a bit worried because the previous series was pretty good but pretty normal. But this book is pretty different to the others and I really I emphatized with the main character Emma Carstairs. And yeah the book has some flaws. But I really love it. So yeah this is my number 5.

4
Some Kind of Perfect by Krista and Becca Ritchie


This book is amazing and is very particular because is an epilogue book. Completely different to the others books that I have in my top. This book is the link and the really end of two amazing series created by the wonderful twin sisters Krista and Becca Ritchie that are Addicted to you and Calloway Sisters.
This book show me how important is the family and to the same time is a brige for the next serie "Like Us". So I really love it the end because was amazing and finished with my favorite couple ever.


Now my Top 3 Favorite Books of this 2016!

3
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover


A book romance that is completely different to other Romance book that I´ve read before this. One of my favorite book authors of Romance is Colleen Hoover.
This book shows a different side about the persons and some perfect relationships and I don´t want spoil nothing but is the first time that I love it and I hated a character so much. And this book encorauge to the people that is a better way.
I cried and I felt so frustrated but was definitely amazing. I have the paperback so I´ll be publishing a review about this book.

2
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas


I am back with another book of Sarah J. Maas. This book is the second in a trilogy and wow this book overcome the first book because at this book so many secrets were revelated and some mask fallen and here I was capable to see the colors of some characters. And here I see a better and more clean (not so clean) image of Feyre.
This book is completely fantasy (my favorite genre) so I was so excited.
This book contains a bit of Everything. And something really important is that I feel a bit scary at two scenes. When I re read those escenes I feel that is hard to breathe (sorry I have a big imagination). Of course so many amazing and wonderful scenes and a character that stolen my heart at the first book this book was a completely wonderful character. I don´t want spoil nothing but was just super amazing.
And the best part the end was super promising.

1
Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas


(´ ▽`)o♡ This book was completely AMAZING! I have the Hardcover of this baby because is wonderful. This is the 5th book the book series Throne of Glass and wow to this point so many things they´ve changed. This book is about wars and how all the things are super complicated and how the friendship and be loyal is so important.
This book is hard and magical and have many strong scenes I was worried about everything.
And wow this book  is heavy and amazing. So many unexpected things happens. And once I discover how amazing is our protagonist. The end destroyed my heart. But the hope is still healing me. I love it so much the end but I cried a lot because pretty hard to digest.
I feel a weight on my chest when I think that the next year will be released the last book at this amazing serie. I well I don´t want crying writing about this book but was amazing.
JUST AMAZING! AND THIS WAS MY FAVORITE FAVORITE BOOK OF THIS YEAR!


Well... This is probably my last post of this 2016! (´・` )♡

So I wanted share smething about my favorites books. Because I am a bookworm (◍•á´—•◍)❤ And my favorite thing at this world are the books. So my best wishes and blessings for this new year for you~

Holika Holika Waterdrop Tinted Foundation


Hi Everyone!

I am here with a new review because I can´t stop to work in my blog. And of course I always try to publish reviews about new products. (⋈◍>◡<◍)。I must confess that this year I didn´t tried any cushion and was basically because I was so busy with everything and sincerely I decided try more bottle products and I decided bought this product from he korean brand Holika Holika and this is the Holika Holika Waterdrop Tinted Foundation 30 ml. I was worried because I´ve tried some products from this brand and I guess they are anot designed for oily skin but I have a little faith since the Jelly BB Cream.

Holika Holika Waterdrop Tinted Foundation 
This is the box~

Back Side Box

One Side~ Ingredients!

Close-up to the Ingredients~

I decided look a bit more to the first six principal ingredients:

  1. Cyclopentasiloxane: Solvent, Emollient. Safety 3
  2. Butylene Glycol: Solvent,Moisturizer. Safety 1
  3. Titanium Dioxide: Pigment Sunscreen. Safety 1-3
  4. Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate: Sunscreen. Safety 6
  5. Glyceril: Solvent; Moisturizer. Safety 1
  6. Cetyl ethylhexanoate: Synthetic ester; Viscosity Control; Emollient. Safery 1
Holika Holika Waterdrop Tinted Foundation #3 Petal



💦 Packaging & Price: The packaging is very nice. Nothing super pretty but is simple and clean and I like that. Something I find very nice is the fact the bottle looks like glass but instead is tempered glass. The tap is a dropper and close pretty well so I guess is very good for carry in my makeup bag and with this I have a good control of the quantity of product that I am going to use without made a mess. The price is now around $8-9 USD in several online stores.

The color~

💦 Color & Formula: The color is like a light beige super good for white pale skins like mine. This shade is #3 Petal and I guess this color is in the medium this is like a #21. But for me this color provides a more light complexion. The texture is liquid and I recommend use a sponge for apply this product instead a brush. Blends pretty well match very nice my skin tone and is very long lasting over 12 hours. The formula prives a medium-high coverage.

03 Petal


Please watch my video review~ \(^▽^)/

PROs and CONs

💦 PROs
- Long lasting formula.
- Lightweight texture.
- Liquid.
- SPF 30 PA++
- Moisturizing effect.
- Great Coverage.

💦 CONs
- This product has only light shades.
- On many countries you only can buy this product online (like me).


Conclusions

When I bought this foundation I have a lot of doubts but was a good decision. First I must confess I was surprised with the coverage of this product. This product offer a great coverage. To medium to high coverage and depends about the quantity of product that you use. Personally I prefer use a sponge for apply this foundation because looks more clean and natural.

This provides a juicy and moisturizing effect and sincerely that is not my style. But I compensate that using a very matte and translucid powder and the effect looks healthy and nothing cakey and I love it that. Because the problem is that I use very matte BB Creams and the problem is that I have to use minimal powder. This foundation provides so a great coverage that I don´t even need concealer because covers everything. Checking the other ingredients I found a group of ingredients that are destined to provides a good care of my skin and I like that. I guess that probably that is the reason for the juicy and moisturizing effect.

The formula is super long lasting and last over 12 hours and I find that is amazing. Because I need a good coverage for a long journey everyday and that is great. I guess this a good foundation for oily skin because even when provides a moisturizing effect this foundation doesnt made that my skin start to produce more sebum so I guess this provides a good quantity of moisture so my skin doesn´t need produce more. 

I recommend this foundation and my only advice is use sponge for apply this foundation because this is very liquid and the effect after the application looks more natural. Great product and 100% recommended. By the way this product has a quantity of 30 ml so that is enough product for me for around eight months.

Sakuranko 6th Anniversary


Hi Everyone!

I am super happy to be here writing this post today, bcause two days ago exactly the 19th of December this Blog was celebrating 6 years of Anniversary. And wow the time flies when you are enjoying what are you doing. I wanted publish this post two days ago but I didn´t have WiFi so for that reason for me wasn´t possible publish the respective post. But Obviously I tried to celebrate that day and was fine because I really enjoyed the day with myself. Because to the end this project has been a bit a great effort of myself all the time. 

I remeber the day when I decided start with this blog and I´ve felt so excited like today. I never expected that this going to be so a great part of my life. This has been amazing and I learned a lot of many people and different companies. Here in my blog I found a space where I can be myself. I can share my passions like makeup, books and coordinates. And of course the photography.

Probably this can sounds incredible but somedays I don´t want wakeup of my bed and thanks to my blgo I have a reason to wakeup and work pretty hard for my blog and my content. I want say a huge thank you to each person there that visit my blog and leave a comment. I really appreciate that. And thanks to you that visit my blog and follow me is because I feel motivated to continue posting and blogging.

Good Months and Bad Months~(●⌒∇⌒●)

Each month is different for me with respect to my blog. And I know that some people just think or she is just doing this about the money. But not because this is not just a businness for me. Bad months when I have to deal with a lot of stress and anxiety I can find my blog like a soft balm for my soul and is just that in that way. Because blogging I can find some amazing posts about bloggers that are so inspiring and this comunity has a lot to offer to different people.

Good Months when I guess I have a schedule for everything and each post with a respective date and some sponsors advertorial. But probably the best part of Good Months is the organization and that I don´t have to deal with shitty people and bad companies.

I believe that this project help me to learn that there is more outside. Even when the country where I live is probably a nightmare I need always expect more about everything. I can expect a better life. And this blog help me move on. And that my sweet people that follow me is amazing. Because I believe that the only way to be a better person and follow our dreams is move on.


“The world will be saved and remade by the dreamers.” 

― Sarah J. Maas, Empire of Storms

My personality is a huge part about the books that I read and that quote is from my favorite book of this 2016. So yeah I need think that. The next year will be super busy about a lot of stuff because I am going to end a lot of things in my life. 

I'll be like always working to improve my reviews and be more detailed about everything. I want improve my videos and of course have a balance about everything. I am not sure how I can make for find time for everything but I am going to make this possible. But I am sure about something you always can find time everyday for make the things that you really love.

°˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°I have a very busy life right now for think about future love in my life. This year several companies stopped to work with me. But that was nice because in that way I found that I enjoy more more making reviews about the products I want and that is not bad because sometimes I prefer make reviews about the products I am more interested.


I expect continue blogging for many years ~ヾ(^∇^)

I am not a social girl. My best way to spend my days is reading in my sofa or in my bed. I love it use cute coordinates for share here. So I hope continue blogging for many upcoming years. Thanks to my family for be the best and the worst sometimes. Thanks dad for ruin that night of my celebration (two days ago) I learned that with you I can´t go out to celebrate nothing because you don´t know how to celebrate nothing. But I need thanks to you to drive me to the Customs a lot of times going to look for packages.

Thanks to my mom for all the times that make cute pics of me for my blog. Like the pics of this post. You are improved a lot and I really appreciate that. ( ̄▽+ ̄*) Thank you for help me to decide about some outfits and I always say that I look like dead fish with circle lenses. But I really love you and thanks to you some post has very cute photos.

“There are good days and hard days for me—even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”

Probably I should tattoo this quote because is exactly that I need the most of time. Thanks to God for always care of me (,,◕ ⋏ ◕,,) Thanks to God for be there for me. This blog is just not a simple space. This blog is a place where I can feel happy. ❤

Hi Everyone!

After several days with many stuff I decided publish this reiew today. Well I wanted publish this post yesterday but thanks to my WiFi that wasn´t possible. But I am here today super happy because this is one of my favorite products and I really love it! KOJI Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner III Dark Brown. This is the new edition or the version 3 of this eyeliner. Since I used this brand of eyeliner the first time I was super excited and this is a great investment talking about respect makeup.

I know lately I´ve talked a lot about eyeliners and that is because probably I am an eyeliner lover ðŸ’— And because I had delayed a lot of reviews about eye makeup for this month. But I am happy. Because this is a super kawaii product and because is produced by one of my favorite japanese models Tsubasa Masuwaka.

By th way If you want the review about the previous version of this eyeliner you can click here -> KOJI Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner II Dark Brown

This post has so many pics because I love it the packaging~~ヾ(^∇^)

o(〃^▽^〃)o

Swatches~(⌒▽⌒)☆


°˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖° Please watch my short video review~ 
You can see how I apply this product~(=´∇`=)

PROs and CONs

PROs
- Kawaii packaging.
- Long lasting formula.
- Good pigmentation.
- Waterproof.
- Smudge proof.

CONs
- On many countries you only can buy this product online.


Conclusions

I had great expectations with this product and I feel happy because all these expectations were filled. First I have this wonderful and super kawaii packaging ðŸ’— and the eyeliner itself has a super lovely design with cute arabesques and wonderful details. And I love it that about this brand always put an effort making cute packaging and I love it that because I feel like a princess using their products and I really love it that.

I guess this formula is better than the previous version and I like it that because this is very waterproof and smudge proof and the application is super easy. The color is really pigmented and that is what I am looking in one eyeliner. For me that elements are essential. This is brush tip but the brush is super soft and the good is that maintain a clean and soft appearence after several months of use. And that is important too, that the brush cells are super soft and small and that offer a great fine line. 

The formula is great for sensitive eyes. And I appreciate that because for me is important because I apply eyeliner with circle lenses in many cases. Another important thing the brush tip does not deform with use. The color is dark brown but and is perfect for everyday because I prefer the brown eyeliner for day because is more soft than the perfect for day. I almost forgot talk about the price, the price of this eyeliner is around $15 to $18 online and for me is a great price because this product has a great quality. I recommend this product to 100%.

SposaDress Prom Dresses

"Advertorial Post"


Hi Everyone!


I was like always a bit busy but I am here back with another post about dresses. By the way I always recommend dresses and I almost forgot that the next year I need start to looking my dress or dresses for the next year because probably will be my prom. Well be my prom I need put all my effort because the next year going to be my prom year. And sincerely I am not to excited like I was expecting I was to be. Probably is my mood right or I don´t know but I don´t feel so excited. Probably I am too tired with College. But in any case I need to start looking dresses and this store SposaDress has an amazing variety of cute dresses.


But now thinking about holidays I guess that even when I am not a fan of white color, because the color that I prefer for dresses iIf is clear must be beige but never white I must confess that this white dress looks super pretty and I really like. Looks super simply but probably that is the reason because I love it that dress. I love it the color and the fall if this purple dress even If am not fan ofthis design.


Now I feel that I am back with my safe zone with this two dresses. The black will be always an option for me because is my favorite color always. This last dress and the first dress are black because are super cute and I love it the color and the design. This soft beige dress with accents in golden is completely perfect and look like from a fairytale. I would use perfectly something like that dress. I hope you enjoyed this post. Like always I want to know which is your favorite dress from my selection. I hope you have a happy day.

Bye Bye!

SKINFOOD Almond Volume King Mascara #1


Hi Everyone!

Today I am here because I wanted share a review about a product that I used a lot during this year. But before I want share about something I am thinking right now I am not sure how some people can manage sleep during day because for me is pretty hard and when I do that during day usually doesn´t feel so nice like sleeping during night. My sleepings habits are the worst I know that probably I only can manage pretty well sleep to four or five hours during night and that is a lot. When I try to sleep during afternoon I enter to a weird limbo where I am not awake or sleeping and my mind start to create stories and scenarios that is completely insane but is like my mind can´t put in off buttom is always working and always sending me information.

I am mentioning this because just like a half hour ago I was making my best effort to sleep but I just simply I can´t my mind was just thinking too much. It´s amazing how hard can become just sleep and how to easy is for other people that are not me. But I need back to this review now today I want share about the SKINFOOD Almond Volume King Mascara #1 a product that I purchased because I needed a new mascara.


◕ Price:  This mascara It was pretty affordable and has a nice price. And you can find this products in some online stores for around $6 to $8 USD. 


Color & Formula: The color is Black Matte and the formula is really dry. The formula has some flaws for me like the fact that after few hours start to fall some particles of this mascaraunder my eyes.

The color~

(。・//v//・。) The Brush~

Before and After~

PROs & CONs

◕ PROs
- Good price.
- The formula is gentle with my sensitive eyes.
- Matte color.
- The brush reach all the eyelashes.

CONs
- The effect is not so noticeable.
- The formula doesn´t last over 5 hours.
- It´s not waterproof.

Conclusions

My first feeling about this mascara thanks to God for my good eyelashes because this could be a completely lost of my money. This has a very cheap price and I can undertand that but I purchased in the past cheap mascaras with great results. and well this is not one of that good mascaras. I like this mascara because I used for everyday but this mascara is not waterproof and is not long lasting. And the formula begins to lose small particles after several hours and that is very dissapointing. Why Am I making this review? Well because despite that I used this product for everyday because I guess this can provides a subtle and natural effect for mornings and I am good with that. The brush is great because reach all the eyelashes. But the formula doesn´t works for me. 

RATING
 ★★☆☆☆

Well for me this product was Ok but I don´t pretend purchase another cheap mascara from SkinFood.(._.)I hope you enjoyed this review ◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖ 
I know that this is not a great product but sometimes I need talk about not amazing products. 

Thanks for visit my blog~
 I hope you have a great day~(‐^▽^‐)
