The Most Relaxing Bath !

Christmas time is probably the only time I get to relax in the school year – my first semester has ended, I have no more papers to write & no need to prepare my classes for next semester since I don’t even know what they’ll be.  I don’t think I’ve ever been as stressed as I was this semester and I even stopped taking care of myself because all I could think about was uni. During my last week of exams, the only thing I could think about was how I’m going to take an evening just to relax & take care of myself. I only take about one bath a year because it means using a lot of water & I’m not the one paying the water bill ! But I knew that this time, a bath was well-deserved – and most importantly well-needed. I went to Lush for the first time to make sure I had the most amzing bath experience, especially since me taking a bath is such a rare thing.

For the bath, I used my Magic Wand and my Christmas Sweater bath bomb. It was my first time using Lush products after hearing so much about it throughout the years and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. My bath smelled absolutely amazing and my skin was softer than it had ever been before.

I put two candles behind me, one on each side of the bath tub so it would feel relaxing – I find that the light in my bathroom is way too bright to relax. Since I decided to read most of the time spent in the bath, I also had a desk lamp next to the bathtub so I could still have enough light to read.

I then put my book down, turned off the desk lamp and put on some calm music (mostly Only You by Selena Gomez & Harry Styles’ album). I put on a peel off face mask at the same time and just relaxed until it was to take it off. I then proceeded to wash my hair before putting on a Avocat Miracle hair mask by My Little Beauty and scrubbed my entire body with the Pinita Colada Body Scrub by The Body Shop.

I’d love to know if you’re a bath kind of person and what you use / do to make it the best relaxing experience !

Beauty Haul October 2017

One of my really good friends & I basically share a birthday (we were born one day apart and basically celebrated a lot of birthdays together throughout the years) & when we realized that we hadn’t seen each other since January – life kept getting the way – and the birthday presents we bought each other were still waiting on our desks about 2 months after our birthdays, we decided it was time. We had the nicest time together and exchanged gifts during lunch. Needless to say, I didn’t expect her to spoil me the way she did, but that just shows you how giving she’s always been.

May Favourites 2017

I’m kind of confused about May because although I feel like it went by really fast, I also feel like it’s been such a long time since the beginning of the month ! Although failing my driving test was kind of a bummer since I have to wait about 3 months to retake it, May has been good to be, between the end of my exams, the good weather and just enjoying my life more than I have in a while (blame it on uni). I have quite a few favourites for you this month, so get ready !


Absolute New York – Velvet Lippie

I used to have a love/hate relationship with this liquid lipstick bc although I loved the colour, it used to dry my lips quite quickly and didn’t last very long. Now that I’ve found out that putting a lot of chapstick to hydrate my lips and putting a nude lipliner all over my lips before I applied the liquid lipstick fixed these issues, I’ve basically been wearing it every day !

So Susan – Light Diffuser (illuminator & bronzer duo)

Contour was never part of my makeup routine but as I was experimenting, I decided that trying wouldn’t hurt. I used this duo, which is basically the only contouring makeup item I own and I actually really liked the result ! It contains both a highlighter and a contour shade, which was good because both go well together. Plus, they are chocolate scented, so what’s not to like? 😉

Nicka K New York – Airbrush Blending Sponge

Although I already owned blending sponges, mine were flat, so I thought I’d try this one and boy was I not disappointed. My foundation was so well  blended with this one that you couldn’t tell I was wearing any ! Given how worried I am that my foundation might be too visible, this sponge totally works for me !


TV Shows

The Handmaid’s Tale

If you follow me on social media, you’ll know about my current obsession for The Handmaid’s Tale. I first heard about the show because Alexis Bledel was part of the cast, and then realised that the book was on my shelf of books to read. Although I finished the book, the show is still airing every wednesday and so many things were added to it that I’m still anxious every episode. The most interesting thing about this book/show is that, although it is dystopian, everything that happens in it has happened in history or is till happening today, which is the scariest thing to me. I don’t see anyone talking about this show but honestly, please watch it.


I used to hear so much about this show but only decided recently to start watching it. It was absolutely brilliant. The sick thing about this is that although you know how wrong the manipulation is just wrong, you’ll love it. I feel as awful as the producers are in the show. The funny thing is, I watched The Bachelorette this week (don’t judge me) and I kept imagining the production of the show and Quinn yelling after everyone. You’ll never watch reality TV the same way, trust me !

Sense8 Season 2

We’ve waited so long for this second season, you’d think I would’ve taken my time to watch it. Well no. I’ve watched the season in a matter of two days. This show is just so addictive ! Honestly one of my all-time favourites. There’s just not one thing I dislike about it. Now I can’t wait for the next season !



Noah Cyrus – Stay Together

I absolutely love Noah Cyrus’ music. The only other song I’ve really listened to is Make Me Cry but if every song of hers is as addictive as these two, then count me in ! You can totally hear a certain ressemblance with her big sister’s voice but their music is totally different ! I just can’t wait to hear more from her !

Shawn Hook ft Vanessa Hudgens – Reminding Me

It’s been years since Vanessa last released music so when this song came out, I got very excited. The song totally fits her voice, very relaxing. Hopefully, she’ll make a real comeback in the music industry soon enough because I love hearing her sweet voice ! 😉

Miley Cyrus – Malibu

Speaking of comebacks & the Cyrus family, queen Miley has made her comeback ! She’s been one of my favourite artists for over 10 years now (wow, that’s crazy) and I was so glad to hear that she was releasing new music ! The country vibes totally fit her voice and the song is just perfect for the Summer ! I can totally see myself listening to it on the beach.

Selena Gomez – Bad Liar

When two of your favourite artists release music, you know it’s a good month. I ave to admit that I didn’t really like the song the first time I listened to it but now, I’m totally addicted to it ! It’s just so different than what we usually hear on the radio, I love it.


Acacia & Jairus

I’ve talked about how much I loved Acacia’s videos when she was pregnant, but let me tell you that now that her little Brinley is born, she is giving me major baby fever ! Acacia & Jairus are currently daily vlogging, which I have really been enjoying ! Congrats on the little princess !

Kate Hudson

My sister and I are  having a Glee marathon, and we’re currently onto the fourth season, which is the one Kate Hudson is in. It totally reminded me of the crush I’ve always had on her and since I’m currently watching A LOT of « chick flicks », a few of her movies magically appeared on my list (I mean How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days is one of my favourites). I suspect my sister to have a crush on her too tbh haha

Freddie Prinze Jr

Obviously, watching a lot of chick flicks meant watching movies of the 90s (the best if you ask me) and Freddie Prinze Jr was in a few of them. I never watched any of his movies but have been obsessed ever since I watched She’s All That. Also, I found out that he is married to Sarah Michelle Gellar and my mind is blown haha

All Pink Everything !

Absolute New York – Velvet Lippie

Trifle Cosmetics – Lips Parfait Exotic Fruits

Jeanne Arthes – L’Eau de Rose 

The Body Shop – Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

Pink is that color that everyone seems to hate because of how « girly » it is. I was one of those people too, but to be honest, I was kind of an all-black person anyways haha. For some unknown reason, I seem to have become an all new person wanting to wear flower dresses and pastel clothes and wear a pretty pink lips. I looked around my room the other day and realized that pink seems to have taken over all my stuff – whether it’s my stationery, makeup, blanket, hoodie… It’s EVERYWHERE. I’m not complaining though, otherwise I wouldn’t make a blogpost about it. Although I first thought I’d put everything I own in pink, I thought it’d be quite random, so I’ve decided to stick to beauty products since I use them on a daily basis 🙂

February Favourites 2017

I know I have never done a favourites blogpost before but those are some of my favourite to read or watch on youtube so I thought I’d try and update you on what I’ve been loving lately. I might not post one every month given that I’m quite basic and tend to like the same things for a long time. Maybe this will help motivating me to try new things once in a while 😉


Beauty Favourites February 2017

As you know from my last blogpost, I have received quite a few beauty items and had to try them out. These ones are basically the ones I’ve been using on a daily basis.

Studio 10 – Brow Lift Perfecting Liner

I have never owned a brow pencil before and I have to say I was quite scared it might not look as natural as I’d want to but I was pleasantly surprised. The colour is the perfect one for me – not too dark, not too light, but absolutely perfect. I always struggled with my eyebrows because of how weird their shape is but that’s all in the past now !

Trifle Cosmetics – Lips Parfait Exotic Fruits

This kind of lipstick is new to me – I’ve always gone for the classic red lipstick. I love the fact that this one feels moisturising, almost as much as a lip balm, and doesn’t dry my lips. I don’t put too much on given that I tend to go for a natural makeup look and so don’t want to go crazy on the colour.

Absolute New York – Velvet Lippie

I have to admit that I put even less of this lipstick on than the last one, but that’s because the colour of this liquid lipstick is quite vibrant. I usually put a bit on my lips and then smudge it all over with my finger, which gives the perfect spring colour ! I also love how matte it makes my lips look !

Yves Rocher – Waterproof Eye Pencil

I’ve always used a traditional eye pencil, which I always found annoying because I always had to sharpen it in order to have a fine line and my eye shape being what it is, it used to smudge all over my right eyelid, making me look like I had black eyeshadow on one eye and none of the other. How great haha. This new eye pencil is actually perfect for me, the pencil is as sharp as I need it to be and the waterproof really does work. I finally get to look somewhat presentable all day !

Windle & Moddie – Invisible Day & Night Cream

For some reason, my hair has been feeling really dry lately and so getting the hair cream was the best thing for me. Not only does it leave my hair feeling softer, it can also be used to get it to settle down (my hair tend to get a bit crazy in the morning) the smell also reminds me of summer. I usually put it on at night and then my hair is all pretty the next morning, which is a great way to start the day, let’s be honest !


Music Favourites February 2017

Christina Aguilera – Back to Basics

This album is one of my all-time favourites. I just feel like it’s so different than what we’re used to hear nowadays ! Christina has one of the best voices out there and I loved growing up listening to her music. I just keep coming back on this album because of how great it makes me feel. I can’t help but scream the words, sorry !

La La Land Original Soundtrack

Who hasn’t heard of La La Land these past few months? I finally watched the movie a few weeks ago and absolutely loved everything about it. The perfect album to listen to whenever I study or just to listen to on the way to uni !

Grease Original Soundtrack

Grease in one of my favourite musicals and my sister and I have just been loving listening to the music whilst we get ready for bed. I also love listening to it whenever I need some motivation, which basically means on my way to uni as well. My friend is so done with it now haha

Kygo feat Selena Gomez – It Ain’t Me

Oh how I love Selena’s songs. I’ve been obsessed with this one ever since it came out. My sister’s friend was actually scared of me because she heard me screaming the words in my room. Can’t help it, it’s just my new anthem okay?

TV Shows

TV Favourites February 2017


I have been waiting for Riverdale for SO LONG ! My brother even joined me on my Riverdale obsession last week and let’s be honest, it’s even better when you have someone to share it with. I just love everything about it and waiting every week to get a new episode is pure torture. I even began to read the Archie Comics and really loving them ! (#Bughead 😉 )

Big Little Lies

To be honest, the show just started so I’m still kind of confused by some things but then again that’s what makes it fun, right? The cast is absolutely amazing and perfect for me since I’ve kind of been obsessed with Reese Witherspoon lately. I love the way it’s shot and the outfits and the music and ugh, it’s just really good okay?


Youtube Favourites February 2017

The Sacconejolys

I have been watching the Sacconejolys for years now – I mean their little boy Eduardo was about 4 months old and look at him now ! It’s just crazy to see the children grow up so fast and to get attached to a family that’s not your own and you don’t even really know. With their new baby girl coming this month, I have been watching every single one of their vlogs. They’re just such a cute family !

Acacia Brinley Clark

I feel like everyone knows Acacia, even by name (or just her pictures since I feel like every catfish from years ago used to use her pictures). Once again, I am obsessed with mums to be – even though that’s far from my situation haha – and so happy for her to welcome her baby girl Brinley Rey Kersey! I’m also obsessed with her style in general and her beauty videos are amazing to me.

Hermione Chantal

Although I don’t do much of DIY, those are some of my favourites videos to watch. I found her channel a few months ago and have been obsessed ever since. We definitely have the same taste in decor and I’m looking forward to the day when I find the motivation to actually recreate some of her DIYs !

Beauty Haul Beauty Haul Beauty Haul Beauty Haul Beauty Haul

My cousin from England came to our house for a few days with her boys and decided to treat me like no one ever has (I mean I do get spoiled, but it usually is for special occasions). She receives Glossyboxes and apparently stored the things that she knew she wouldn’t use to give to me, which is so thoughtful. I honestly felt like it was Christmas all over again. I only used a few of these products so far but boy do I love looking at a box full of makeup products ! I also love that she included a notebook and sticky notes, because we all know the organisation freak that I am can’t get enough of those haha

My Current Evening Routine

Having worked on my Christmas break and then being sick on my last days before going back to uni, I knew that I didn’t have the chance to rest enough and that I had to make sure I could make it through this new semester without breaking/failing. For that reason, I have decided to put in place an evening routine, to make sure I would get as much sleep as possible during the week – I may only have 2 and a half days of class per week, but I do get up early anyway and make my days as productive as I can. Setting up a night routine is the best way for me to wash off my day and prepare my body and mind to go to sleep – I actually do find it effective, considering that I used to spend hours in bed before fallig asleep when it only takes me about 30 minutes now.

I usually start my evening by taking a shower, just to wash off my day and feeling more relaxed – there’s nothing better than a warm shower after a hard day, especially when it’s cold outside. I actually only take a shower in the evening when I have school the next morning, or else I’ll just stick to a skincare routine – I also like to have a pamper night every Sunday to feel fresh and ready to start a new week.

I then head into my room and that’s when I consider my evening routine to truly begin.The first thing I do is to put some music on and only turn on the light on my bedside table, which sets a more relaxing mood. I find that the music I like to listen to the most at this time of the day is mostly movie soundtracks, because they mostly include more relaxing music – but then it’s just what works best for me, it might be different for everyone. Lately, I’ve been listening to the Fifty Shades Of Grey and A Walk to Remember soundtracks, which are some of my favourites.

My Current Evening Routine

When the mood is set, I then begin with the first part of my routine which is my skincare one. My skincare routine is quite simple at night, I usually just put my hair up, take my makeup off and hydrate my face and lips, which tend to get quite dry at night otherwise. Plus, for some reason not having anything on your face and just feeling fresh in general makes me feel way more relaxed.

My Current Evening Routine

Being the control freak that I am, I then like to make sure I have done everything I was supposed to and I’m ready for the next day. How many times have I gone up in the middle of the night just to check if I had everything for the next day? Thought about everything I needed to have done throughout the day just to make sure I wouldn’t have to do it the next day or worse, that it was my last chance of doing so and I’d get in trouble for not doing it (that’s usually how my anxiety kept me from sleeping for hours). To make sure that wouldn’t happen again, I now have a planner in which I write everything I have to do throughout the day and just check it off as it gets done. Not only does it make me feel more productive, it also helps with my anxiety. I like to take my planner just to check if I haven’t forgotten anything in the day and just plan ahead for the following days. That’s usually when I also make my bag for uni and plan mmy outfit for the next day (that gives me more time to sleep in the morning)

My Current Evening Routine

Finally, once I feel physically and mentally relaxed, I get into bed. I usually check on social media (just to see what my friends posted on Twitter and Snapchat) but make sure not refresh them so that I don’t spend hours on my phone, which is really bad if you want a good night sleep. I then like to take time to read a book.  I hated not taking the time to read books I actually wanted last year and so I want to make sure I do now. I’ve reached for The 100 by Kass Morgan, just because I was excited about the show being back this week. Reading actually helps me to fall asleep – although I have to admit it can be hard to put the book down sometimes – because I like to make up scenarios in my head until I fall asleep and reading helps with my imagination.

My current skincare routine


Now that school has started again, one of the things I’m trying to be really focused on is my skincare routine.  It might sound stupid but as soon as I go back to school, my skin tends to break out or act out in any way that it can. Between the stress, transportation and lack of sleep – well, let’s be honest I still sleep a lot but waking up at 5:30 in the morning some days means I don’t get as much of a beauty sleep as I do on holidays – I seem to be reuniting all the elements in order for my skin to break out on me. Plus, I find having a skincare routine really relaxing, waking me up in the morning or washing the day off at night. As you can see, I don’t use a lot of products but they’re really just a base and I don’t have time every morning to spend using tons of products. Plus, I don’t have the budget for it.

Bioderma cleansing water 

The first product I use during my routine is my Bioderma cleansing water. I use it every morning and night to clean my face from all the dirt my face comes across. I’ve been using this one for years and it always leaves me feeling fresh and ready for the day ! Plus, it’s always better to have a clean face before you start adding products on your face anyway and it helps removing bits of makeup which might not have come off.

The Body Shop – Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet 

I always used face creams to moisturize my face but they always felt a bit heavy on my face. On the contrary, this sorbet feels really nice and fresh on my face. You can also put it in your fridge for it to be even more fresh, which I loved doing when the weather was quite warm. This is also the product I use before putting makeup on since it hydrates my face just enough for my foundation to blend nicely !

Neutrogena – Visibly Clear 2-in-1 

I mostly use this product as a wash even though I also use it as a facemask when my skin gets a little crazy. I like to put it on right before I take a shower and wash it off in it so I can feel all fresh – yes, I do use this term a lot in the post but does your skincare really works if you don’t feel fresh afterwards ? haha – as soon as I get out. I actually notice that my skin has had a lot less breakouts ever since I started using this product regularly.

Garnier – Pure Active 3-in-1

Since I use the Neutrogena product as my wash, I don’t really use this one as such even though I like to inverse them from time to time. I have so many problems with my pores – they’re the thing I’m most self-aware of and can’t seem to get rid of. At least, I feel like using this product as a scrub and a face-mask, once a week for each action, it does reduces the problem a bit more. It does dry my skin, which is why I find moisturising really important in my skincare routine.

Nivea – Makeup remover 

I asked myself if I should insert my makeup remover in this list, but even though the ones I’ve used before just seemed to take my makeup off – I mean that’s what they’re made for so that’s good – this one feels both like a makeup remover and a moisturizer. I love it because of how hydrated my face feels and looks afterwards. I might hate having to take my makeup off but I mmust admit that the feeling afterwards is worth every second of it ! 😉

What I got for my 19th birthday !

20160903_102718 20160903_104131 20160903_104159

Do you ever feel like time passes even more quickly as the years come by? This is how I’ve been feeling lately, which can be a little scary when I realise I’m only nineteen… How is it gonna be once I’m in my sixties?

I celebrated my birthday last saturday but didn’t upload this blogpost until today because I really wanted to put all my presents but only got some of them a few days ago. I don’t think I have gotten presents for that many people in many years – except for my birthday parties of course. This year, my parents, brother, sister, two best friends, Godfather and cousin all managed to make me feel special and for that, I’ll always be thankful. Presents aren’t about what I physically get but more about the intention, the time and effort put into finding me something. I even bought myself a little treat at The Body Shop – which ended up costing me less than 1€ thanks to the sales and the price reductions I gained with my fidelity card.

I celebrated my birthday, not by throwing a big party like most people would do, but by staying home watching Gilmore Girls all day. Everyone knows I’m not much of a party girl and would rather spend my day doing something I actually enjoy – and what could be better than one of my favourite shows? Well, I guess you could say I did party at my birthday given that my best friend who was celebrating hers (she’s born on the 26th and I on the 27th) decided to share her spotlight with me at midnight. The most important thing is that I felt happy the entire day and blessed to be surrounde by the people I love.

I linked all the things I could find on the internet below so you can see the products better – especially for the clothes. If you have any problem with anything or just a question about the products, feel free to ask me !
