Christmas in Paris
It’s been way too long I updated this and I realized I miss it SO much. So here I am, back and ready to blog (almost) every days again!
These are new Essie nail polishes I bought for Winter. I adore the “luxeffects” collection and will probably get more than this gorgeous blue.
From left to right: “Shearling darling” “Stroke of brilliance” “Toggle to the top”. I got these for cheaper than I usually buy Essie, on Amazon England.
Ladurée Macaroons - I loved all the pink ones the most! I haven’t posted on here since so long.. And too many things happened in my life - things I don’t really want to talk or blog about. My birthday was Sunday and I had cute gifts + my best friend baked for me the most adorable cupcakes. Photos of everything coming soon ~ And new beauty reviews to come too + my personal website where I will sell my creations. ♥
Life goes by too fast. Aren’t you scared of it too, sometimes? It feels like January and all the “new year” things were just a month ago, yet tomorrow is the first day of August. I cannot say my year have been what I hoped it would be, so far - but I’m not the kind of person to continuously cry on myself. Many tears and fights and reasons to break down and to just give up.. but I always realize quick enough that giving up isn’t the solution, and just isn’t me. As far as I remember, my life always had many downs, but also some truly beautiful moments, thanks to the people who are always there for me. Watching my best friend getting married, meeting this one person that means the world to me, my family, the laughters. Even the “little things” such as rescuing a little cat in the beginning of the year, giving him a new home full of love; starting to draw again and seeing people are enjoying it; my time spending playing video games and laughing so much, and the list goes on and on.. Everything in life is actually worth fighting for, and as fast as it goes by, I’m going to try and enjoy every seconds of it, and each days, try to make it a little bit better, for me, and the people around me.
This picture sums up what I’m dreaming of these days. The beach, tanning, swimming, while of course, looking pretty and smelling amazing ♥
Too Faced have the cutest packagings. That’s all I have to say about this picture I took while trying to organize a bit my makeup. ♥
These days I’m trying to hide everything fragile, pretty, and breakable in my room. I bought a super pretty bed for my kittens and want them here with me every nights~ I never had such little cats before. Can something be more adorable though? I’m waiting for the day I manage to take a perfect picture of them both to show you guys; they look like tiny pandas! Although they are brother and sister, they are very different; the boy is very playful and silly and cuddly, but the girl is more of a lazy and wild one. July is going by so fast and it’s really not something I’m going to cry about. My real holidays are starting on August and I REALLY need them. Getting away from Paris, seeing the people I love, having fun.. Endless days at the beach, endless nights drinking and talking and laughing. Yes, please.
A few of my - actual favourite bikinis. Simple and always with a bandeau top so I don’t have weird tan lines (so not sexy..) Forever 21, Asos,and Victoria’s Secret for the brands. The turquoise and white one is new and I can’t wait to wear it at the beach soon! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.
I tried so many brands of nail polish (even the more luxurious and very expensive one) but I must say that Essie is still the best to me. Here are 4 colours of the Summer 2013 collection ♥
Living in Paris is really, really amazing, and as a lover of high fashion, and everything trendy, I’m the luckiest to live in such a city. Sadly a few brands still not have shops here in France - Like Juicy Couture, Victoria’s Secret, and of course Bath and body works. Even though it’s possible to order on the VS website (I did it a few times, although I pay taxes, I never regretted it. Still so in love with my purple bikini!) it’s impossible to buy on the b&bw’s one and I was always disappointed because I kind of wanted to try almost everything from there! Thanks to eBay and amazon, I found a few little shops selling these cute products. It took a while to arrive to my home but finally I got them - I only have these two little hand gels, and body lotion. The smells and packaging are the prettiest, and girliest ever! And I finally have cute little hand sanitizer in my purse, instead of one that smells nothing… Next buy from there? Candles of course ♥
I finally got to try out Soap & Glory and I can immediately say it was love at first sight. The packaging is so cute, vintage and pink - the texts are funny. Of course the first thing I did was smelling all 4 products I bought.. and it’s totally delicious. Now to the quality itself; I started showering yesterday with the “clean on me” and found it close to perfect. Very silky and soft texture, moisturizing, and it smells like a really classy and expensive perfume. The body butter is probably my favourite of all these things. The smell is perfection! and my skin totally loves the texture, the formula, everything. I needed a new foot cream and this one is doing the job well for now but I can’t say yet if it’s something I will buy again - and finally, the body scrub. I usually do my own, using brown sugar etc or I use the soft ones from I love..cosmetics - I talked about these in the past already. This Soap & Glory one is the same texture as my homemade one, but with an amazing smell, and more ingredients that will certainly respect my skin more.
I will for sure buy more from this brand in the future & I really advise anyone to try it out.
Do NOT order online if you are unsure of what really suits you. You would most likely end up disappointed.
2// Relax - Think that there are plenty of girls like you on this same beach, unsure of their body, no, not “everyone is looking at you” they are most likely busy caring about themselves and enjoying their holidays.
3// Wear cute accessories, bracelets, sunglasses, cover-up. If you don’t like yourself without make-up, use waterproof one. You can find absolutely anything, from mascara to eye-liner, that will resist water and the warm, warm weather.
4// Listen to music. We all have these songs on our mp3 players that make us feel good, happy, confident. Use this positive energy at the beach!
5// Don’t take it so seriously!It’s summer. Summer means holidays, friends, parties, bbq, family, and well most likely, FUN! Everyone is at the beach for the same reason as you, to enjoy the sun, the sand, and the sea.
6// You think you’re fat and you envy this very skinny girl sitting next to you? Do you really think she loves her body? We all know the answer. It’s super cliché but be happy with how you are. Don’t judge other people you see, as much as you really don’t want to be judged by your look. Don’t compare yourself with them! Everyone is different and for example, these Victoria’s Secret models work out non stop and have very strict diets to have such bodies.
7// Get used to wear your bikini at home. The sun is there? Go and tan in your garden! People will see you, even if it’s only your family, and you will get used to this very light outfit around people.
8// Just enjoy yourself. s.u.m.m.e.r. Get a tan, swim, enjoy your life. You are young, and yes, definitely beautiful. Happy Holidays! ♥
This kind of amazing weather we got since a few days makes me want to go on a vacation at the beach. I really NEED to go, and as soon as I get better, I’m going there with no hesitation. These days I’m still fighting with my bad health and trust me when I say than feeling healthy is something you should thanks life for everyday.
I also have a big change coming up in my life.. Since yesterday, I adopted two adorable kittens! I’m so excited about it and they are the cutest ever. Of course you guys will have to deal with a lot of pictures the next few days/weeks.. but who doesn’t love baby cats? They are brother and sister and are named Cookie & Ellie ❤

No such thing as “too many mascaras” those who follow me since long know all about this! Here are a few favourites and two new ones “color shock” (it’s purple! I will post pictures soon probably on Instagram) and “smokey eyes”. I’m not so active on this new rebuild of my blog yet, but soon I will post more and more.. coming soon: my summer must haves and advises to look good & be confident at the beach.
A few of my Instagram pictures. Right now I’m watching a few runways and news of Paris fashion week for Haute Couture. So dreamy & gorgeous and I cannot help but imagine myself and my clothing lines there in some years, too. On Friday I’m going to Japan Expo; I’m kind of excited about it! I’m going to buy so many cute stuff - follow me on Instagram for live update if you love Japanese culture!
Now about these photos:
