Is there anyone here anymore?

Um... *cough*, *cough*. Is this thing on?

It's been ages since I've updated the blog and I haven't written a beauty post in ages.
I've been sporadically active on Instagram (@giarediluce), but I completely abandoned this space and I kind of feel sorry, but at the same time I know it has been because my focus was on other, more important aspects of my life.

I finally graduated! It has taken a while, I don't want to bother you with the reasons why it has, but... it's over. And now I can seek better opportunities.

This year so many things have changed it's incredible!
Not everything has changed for the worst and change is inevitable but sometimes, you know, it can leave you a bit confused. You don't know which choices to make.

So... I graduated, my relationship status has changed, I've been living on my own again, struggled a bit to get adjusted to the situation both emotionally and financially, my relationship with my father has improved a bit, started a new part-time job, unfortunately lost another family member.

I cannot say, though, that I'm not satisfied with myself because I handled the situations the best way I could and I believe that what I've gone through in the past has helped me reaching this level of self-awareness.
I'm genuinely a modest person, so to talk about my qualities is difficult for me, but I'm happy to say I can recognize my strength, my reliance. Not in comparison to other people, but for who I am.

And once more I came to deeply understand how lucky I am to have some important people in my life, no matter the definition we give or do not give to the relationship: friends that are like a sister and a brother to me, a second family, an ex that is a very close friend, distant friends that are closer to my heart than some people that live 500 meters from where I live.

I wanted this post to be personal 'cause I felt like open up. If I'm going to update the blog, I will go back to my beauty passion. Even though... Is it still relevant to use Blogger? Or to run a blog, really?
IG seems to have taken over...

So, I hope to still find some of you here, hope you're all well and we should start to interact again, shall we? I miss those early years of blogging when it was all about having fun and creating connections.

I am thinking about moving to WordPress and changing the content a bit maybe? Incorporating different things. Let me know what you guys think and have an amazing holiday season!




Along with being excited, I'm kind of shitting myself as well because blogs these days seem to be all professional and perfect, but I'm going to not give a f. and try to enjoy what I'm doing with no growth or success goal in mind.

Makeup Blog Sale

Benvenuti! Ogni prodotto che vedete è stato usato, utilizzato per swatches o nuovo e conservo tutto nella maniera migliore possibile e in un ambiente pulito ed asciutto. Se un prodotto è nuovo o molto usato lo indicherò nello specifico. Igienizzerò tutto ciò che mi è possibile igienizzare con lo spray antibatterico della Beauty So Clean. A scopo puramente preventivo, vi invito a ripetere l'operazione una volta che ciò che acquisterete vi verrà recapitato. 

Ecco qualche regola:
  • Spedisco in Italia, ovviamente, ma anche all'estero. Consegna a mano in Torino (con delle restrizioni, meglio accordarsi via mail).
  • Costi di spedizione: vi rimando al sito di Poste Italiane, tutto dipende dal peso della busta/del pacco. Per favore, cercate di non chiedermi ulteriori sconti dato che i prezzi dei prodotti sono già ridicolmente bassi.
  • Nessun rimborso, nessun reso: una volta che il pacco viene spedito, qualsiasi eventuale danno o smarrimento o cambio di idea (vostro) non è sotto la mia responsabilità
  • Se siete interessate a qualcosa, scrivetemi a:
  • "Chi prima arriva, meglio alloggia"
  • Accetto pagamenti solo su Paypal (scrivetemi in caso di consegna a mano)
  • Invierò la richiesta di pagamento dopo esserci accordati tramite mail sui prodotti e la spedizione e dovrà essere pagata entro 48 ore, trascorse le quali il/i prodotto/i verranno rimessi in vendita
  • Mi spiace per le eventuali attese, ma spedirò solo di lunedì per motivi organizzativi

Welcome! Each item you see in this sale has been gently used, just swatched or never used and everything is stored in the best way possible (in a clean and dry place). If a product is new or very used I will clearly indicate it. I will sanitize all the sanitizable items with the Beauty So Clean Cosmetics Sanitizer Mist pictured below. Of course, just for the sake of it, I suggest you to repeat this step once the item will be in your hands.

And here are some rules:

  • This sale is INTERNATIONAL (I ship internationally at the buyer's own risks )
  • Shipping costs: see below! [The prices of the items are already low, please don't ask me to have an additional discount...]
  • No refunds, no returns: once I will ship the package, I won't be responsible for it if it gets damaged or lost or if you changed your mind..
  • If you're interested in some products send me an e-mail to:
  • First-come, first-served
  • An item will be reserved for you 24hrs and then go back to sale if I don't hear from you anymore.
  • Payment: Paypal only
  • I will send you an invoice after we've agreed on the sale and please pay the invoice within 48 hours or I will put the items back up for sale
  • I'm sorry, but I will only ship on Mondays for organizational reasons
Shipping rates:
