My top 5 morning essentials


I was having fun creating a set with Beautysets and I have decided to make a set with my top morning essentials. People following me on Twitter already know that I am not a very morning person.
I am not saying I'd want to sleep until very late everyday, but I sure hate the alarm clock and also I would like to have the time to enjoy a slow breakfast, reading the newspapers, and starting the day in a peaceful way. Instead, during the week mornings are for running and trying to look a better version of myself. In the image above you can find my top picks that help me surviving an early wake up:
1. A miracle brush that is so helpful to keep my hair into shape and prevent them to go frizzy and protects my dry ends
2. Concealer and Brightener that make my skin look better and hide my dark circles caused by lack of sleep and also too much time in front of a pc screen (you know, it happens when you work in an office and when you blog during your free time !)
3. A blush with coral/peach tone, to give some natural color to my pale skin, so I don't look like a carachter from Twilight, in the morning !
4. A vibrant color lipstick to add some energy and to make me look awaken even tho my brain is still in a stand by condition (justsaying !)
5. Obviously, nothing could have any effect without the King of breakfast, the fuel to my body: coffee !. I am officially addicted !.
What do you think ? Tell me your top picks for a good start of the day and if you want follow me on Twitter and let's complain together ! ;-).


Mi stavo divertendo a provare Beautysets e ho deciso di creare un set con i miei prodotti essenziali del mattino. Chi mi segue già su Twitter sa che non sono una persona esageratamente mattiniera.
Non dico che vorrei dormire sempre fino a tardi, ma certamente odio il suono della sveglia e mi piacerebbe avere il tempo di godermi una bella colazione lenta, leggendo i giornali e poter iniziare la giornata in modo pacifico.
Invece, nel corso della settimana, le mattine sono tutte una corsa contro il tempo per cercare di sembrare la versione migliorata di me stessa. Nella immagine potete trovare le mie scelte per sopravvivere ad un brusco risveglio:
1. Una spazzola miracolosa che possa aiutare a tenere la piega ai miei capelli tendenti al crespo e secchi alle punte
2. Correttore e illuminante, magica coppia per migliorare la mia pelle e nascondere le occhiaie dovute a poche ore di sonno e anche a troppo tempo al computer (tra il lavoro in ufficio e il blog nel tempo libero !)
3. Un blush dal tono corallo/pesca, che possa dare colore al pallido fantasma che sono appena sveglia, per non sembrare un personaggio di Twilight
4. Un rossetto dal colore vibrante che faccia sembrare più sveglie anche se in fondo in fondo il cervello è ancora in stand by
5. Ovviamente, niente ha effetto senza il re della colazione, la benzina per il mio corpo: il caffé ! Ne sono dipendente !.
Cosa pensate delle mie scelte ? Ditemi quali sono i vostri prodotti per un buon inizio di giornata e, se volete, seguitemi su Twitter in modo che possiamo confrontarci e lamentarci insieme ! ;-).

  10. You're so pretty! I like that picture of you. I have to be honest...I've never heard of that Braun Satin brush before. But now I want to know more lol.

    These are all great products. Vegas Volt looks amazing on you! Have you ever tried Morange from Mac? It's very bright but I love it.

  21. Il post mi è piaciuto ^^ Non l'avevo proprio capito che non sei una persona mattieniera. Su twitter sei sempre una tale sferzata di positività appena sveglia ;)
    Io devo iniziare la giornata con latte e cereali. Il caffè viene dopo, ma senza il mio bel tazzone di latte freddo la giornata parte male. Poi ci vogliono crema idratante e primer illuminante e piegaciglia e mascara in quantità per aprire lo sguardo ^^

  22. Makeup perfetto, e stai benissimo con quella blusa corallo! Non conoscevo beautysets!! Ps. Ti seguivo già su bloglovin. Bacione!!

  23. Ciao Vale! Che carino il tuo beautyset! Hai avuto un'idea molto carina! Adoro tutti i prodotti che usi, in particolare il rossettino! Mi piace il colore, ne ho uno simile di kiko ma è più sheer! Un bacio e buona giornata cara!:**

  33. You´re looking really awake and fresh, dear <3 To be honest I need a lot of things in the morning: my brush which is made from pig bristles, my blush, my lipstick, my eyebrow makeup ... and lot´s of hairclips! But equal which effort I do, I would never look as perfect like you!
