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 !

BEAUTY

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

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.

Unreal

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 !

MUSIC

Music

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.

PEOPLE

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

April Favourites 2017

I can’t believe it’s already the end of April. This month went by so fast ! I thought I’d share with you some of the things I’ve loved the most throughout the most. Unfortunately, I haven’t been wearing makeup much (I don’t usually wear makeup when I have exams and let’s just say I’ve had exams all months haha) so there won’t be a beauty part in the blogpost but don’t worry, I have a few other things to talk about 😉

MUSICMusic

Cheat Codes ft Demi Lovato – No Promises

This song has been stuck in my head for weeks now. Such a fun song to listen to when you’re in a good mood and just want to dance around your room ! I feel like it’s gonna be one of the songs I’m going to listen to the most this summer !

Selena Gomez – Only You

The whole 13RW soundtrack is absolutely amazing but this one is probably y favourite – it just suits the show so much ! Selena’s voice is so relaxing I swear I could fall asleep just by listening to it.

The Moana Soundtrack

Alright, I’ll talk about the movie later in the post but I felt like the soundtrack deserved its recognition. I am absolutely obsessed with it ! All the songs have been stuck in my head and I’m not complaining ! But then again, I love all Disney soundtrack so it doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone haha

TV SHOWS

Tv shows favourites

Thirteen Reasons Why

Everyone has heard about Thirteen Reasons Why but I couldn’t not mention it. I read the book years ago and it’s been one of my favourites ever since. I had been waiting for the adaptation for so long but was nervous when it came out because I didn’t want to be disappointed. It’s been weeks since I finished it and I’m still broken by it. I can’t even begin to tell you how important this show is to me ! Definitely became one of my favourites.

Revenge

I first began to watch Revenge years ago but it took me a while to finish it just because I suck at keeping up at shows and take 6 months breaks at the middle of a season haha. I loved how original this show was compared to most shows. I’ve always been interested in books/movies/shows around the subject of revenge so it was perfect to me haha.

Broadchurch

The last season of Broadchurch finished airing and I still can’t believe it’s over for good. To be honest, I like crime shows but tend to get quite bored with them. I didn’t get bored with this one, that’s for sure. I  love how different the three crimes were (one per season) so it didn’t feel repetitive. Also I liked the way they showed the impact of the crimes on the town, that even years later you could still feel the loss. The way the show is shot is also so amazing I can’t get over it !

MOVIES

Movies favourites

Rogue One

My brother bought the Rogue One DVD a few weeks ago and since I hadn’t seen it (my brother and my dad went to see it on Christmas Day, whilst I was working) I was really excited to finally get to. I knew nothing about the movie except for when it took place, so it was a total surprise to me. I don’t want to spoil it to anyone but boy I wasn’t expecting to cry this much near the end haha

Moana

I watched Moana last night. I’ve been wanting to for months now but every time I was looking for a movie to watch, I just forgot about this one. I watched it with my entire family and we all loved it. It was absolutely beautiful in every way, and very different from other Disney movies. I just wish we could’ve seen more of the pig.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

I know, I’m late to this one as well, what a shame. My cousins came for Easter and since we’re all such fans of the Harry Potter universe, we decided to watch it together. I loved absolutely everything about it. I just thought it was funny how Newt was a Hufflepuff raising magical creatures because every one knows that’s what I would’ve done too. I guess it’s a Hufflepuff thing 😉 I can’t wait for the next movie !

BOOKS

Books favourites

E. Lockhart – We Were Liars

This book was one my list of books to read for quite a while now, so when I went to WHSmith and saw it, I immediatly grabbed it. I didn’t know anything about the book. I actually have so much to say about it, I’m thinking about dedicating a whole post just about it so the only thing I’ll tell you about it is  : WHAT A PLOT TWIST !

HIGHLIGHT OF THE MONTH

My favourite part of the month was definitely going to England to see my family and celebrate my little cousin’s birthday. I miss them so much and England has always felt like home to me ♥

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

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

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

Riverdale

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

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 !

5 Favourite albums for the Summer

Summer has always been one of my favourite seasons, mostly because of how it improves my mood. It’s the perfect season to enjoy every moment – not only because school is over but also because the weather makes me want to do so much ! Although I love staying in my room and just chill for the day, I have to admit that going out when the sun is out makes me feel much better about myself.

Now, when you’re in the best mood because of the weather, I don’t think I’m the only one who likes to put my music even louder and dance around. Whether it’s in your car, in your room, with your friends or alone, admit that you’ll feel even better. I have some albums that I feel like fit perfectly for this season and I keep listening to them every year so I thought I’d share some of my favourite with you ! There is no particular order for them, I just like to go with the flow 😉

5 Seconds of Summer – 5 Seconds of Summer

5SOS has been one of my favourite bands for a few years now. I absolutely love their music, mostly because of how fun it is ! This album is actually the one I’ve been listening to all the time lately. I feel like the songs are just about living in the moment and not give a f*ck about the rest. It’s all good fun 😉

Favourite songs : Good Girls, 18 & Everything I Didn’t Say

talking dreams

Echosmith – Talking Dreams

Echosmith was my favourite band from last summer as I’ve mentionned in my Summer Favourites. Because it is more chilled than the others, it makes it  perfect for when you just want to relax – at the beach or in the evening. It just makes me want to ride my bike along the beach with my sunglasses on, enjoy the view and live in the moment !

Favourite songs : Let’s Love, Bright & Tell Her You Love Her

Hot_Chelle_Rae_-_WhateverHot Chelle Rae – Whatever

Whatever is the only album by Hot Chelle Rae I truly know but one thing is sure : it’s my go-to party album. Everytime I feel in a hyper mood or just want to shake everything off, this is probably the first album I put on. Some songs are about having a lot of sh*t happen to you but not caring about it and it just helps me having a different perspective on things I guess !

Favourite songs : Honestly, Why Don’t You Love Me & The Only One

little-mix-get-weird-albumLittle Mix – Get Weird (Deluxe)

I wrote a whole blogpost about my love for Little Mix and this album in particular. Listening to it just makes me want to dance around and mostly makes me feel like a total queen. If you need to boost your confidence during the summer, it’s the perfect album for you ! You’ll feel like you don’t need anyone but yourself and just enjoy what you have – at least that’s how I feel 😉

Favourite songs : Hair, OMG & Secret Love Song (Part II)

selena-gomezSelena Gomez & The Scene – A Year Without Rain

This album is such a throwback but it’s definitely one of those I listen to the most ! Definitely underrated if you ask me ! It has such fun songs ! And I mean the fact that it’s perfect for summer is quite obvious – I mean it has a song called « Summer’s Not Hot » for God’s sake ! 😉

Favourite songs : A Year Without Rain, Rock God & Sick of You

Obviously, these aren’t the only things I like to listen to in the summer and for that reason, I created a playlist on Spotify called « Summer fun » which basically includes some of my favourite fun tunes to listen to on good, sunny days 😉 If you have any suggestions of songs to add, please let me know 🙂 I’ll try to remember to update it every time I find a song worth listening to !

Twenty One Pilots – Blurryface

Blurryface

It’s been a few months now, that I have truly been listening to Twenty One Pilots, even though I knew a lot of their lyrics by heart and basically saw them everywhere, because I follow a lot of their fans on tumblr, especially a good friend of mine who has been telling me to listen to their music for a while now. It took me years, but since I have actually taken time to listen to their albums, I just have been obsessed.

I don’t usually listen to this kind of music, so it was nice to discover something I’m not used to. I feel like you hear « Stressed Out » so many times in a day, whether it’s on TV or on the radio, you can’t escape it anyway haha. Tyler Joseph’s voice is so amazing anyway, you can’t really mind, can you? I don’t know a lot of singers who can actually rap and sing like an angel at the same time, but boy this one definitely can.

It’s quite funny because the first time I heard his voice was on his cover of « Can’t Help Falling In Love With You » (which I actually have been listening to for wayyyyy longer and will link below because I’m obsessed and you need to listen to it) so I was quite surprised to hear his band’s music simply because it’s just so different. But isn’t it what true artists are supposed to be able to do?

The title says that I have especially been listening to their album « Blurryface » but in reality, I have been listening to every album on repeat. I just happen to have listened to Blurryface a bit more because it’s the only one I had time to download and put on my music player so I have been listening to it whilst going to Uni. I’d say my favorite songs from this album must be « The Judge »,  « Tear In My Heart », « Not Today » and « Goner ».

Facebook Page – TwitterPersonal TumblrFan Tumblr – Instagram – Pinterest

PS : I just realised how long it has been since I last posted about music I have been enjoying and the reason for that is that I always seem to be listening to the same thing over and over again, so please if you have something new for me to listen to, let me know because I love discovering new things, as you all know by now 😉

What I got for Christmas !

20151227_111629

Even though it was two days ago, I want to wish you all a merry Christmas and hope you’ve all had a wonderful time with your loved ones ! Christmas is my favorite day of the year so of course I was really happy even though I only got to celebrate it with my parents and siblings. I felt really blessed with everything I got so I thought I’d share it with you. One of the presents, the main one actually, isn’t in the pictures because my dad offered me and my brother a 3 days vacation in London in March, during which we’ll get to see the Harry Potter studios so we’re really excited about that ! Please let me know what you got for Christmas, I’d love to know !

20151227_111827

First of all, I got some items from the Yves Rocher Christmas collection, which are spicy vanilla scented and trust me, the smell is absolutely amazing. I have only used the lip balm so far but I thought that the shower and bath gel would be perfect to bring with me to London and I’m always a sucker for a good hand cream and liquid hand soap so all these items will be well used, trust me ! 😉

They are limited editions so I thought that I’d give you the links to buy them now if you want to ! (Also they are apparently quite cheap so I think it’d be worth it !)

Liquid Hand SoapShower and Bath GelHand CreamLip Balm

20151227_111952

Also from Yves Rocher, my mum bought me a few make up products. I absolutely love a good red-lips look so my mum decided to buy me a red lipstick and she made a perfect choice in the color. This lipstick is pigmented and matched my Christmas hat so I was really happy about it when I tried it on. Mine is a Grand Rouge in the shade 3.3 Rouge Gourmand or Sweer Red in English according to the website. In the same gold packaging which I am obsessed with, my mum also bought me an eye shadow palette. The colors from the palette are quite discreet (except for the black one obviously) which is a good point to me because this is actually my first palette since I don’t usually wear eye shadow. I also got a lip brush which can always be useful to define your lips and something I really like about it is that it’s retractable so basically the brush won’t get damaged when I put it in my bag ! And finally, I got a foundation which I forgot to put in the pic. I never wear foundation and only intend to use it from time to time but I think having foundation can always be useful in your make-up bag. And because I have pale skin, my mum bought me a quite light shade which is the Rosé 200.

20151227_112113

The final thing my mum bought me is a new music player. Story short, I already have a music player but it’s basically full so my mum had to give me hers so I could add the music I couldn’t fit in my first music player. Apparently, buying me a new music player is a subtle way for her to tell me she wants hers back.. 😉

And finally I bought myself a few things as well, because Christmas is the perfect time to treat yourself so I bought myself an oversized shirt from Primark which I’ll be using as a pajama top, as I always do and I thought the text on it would be perfect for a pajama. And it was only 5€ so I couldn’t say no to that. I also bought myself a coloring book because I have to do something with my hands while I watch tv so I thought it’d be perfect for it and also a great way for me to relax, which is always a plus. I actually bought the one you see in the picture for my sister but she liked the one I bought myself more so basically I decided to trade. What a good sister I am !

Of course on top of that I got a lot of chocolate, mainly from my brother who didn’t know what to offer me but I’m definitely not complaining about that !

Next time I’ll see you, New Year’s will have passed so I also wanted to wish you an early Happy New Year and don’t forget not to get too crazy and be responsable !

Winter Essentials

20151213_113434

December is here, and even though I’m not a fan of this cold season, I have to admit that the only reason why I don’t like it is that I have to go to school anyway, because let’s be honest, I do love it during the holidays. And most importantly, December is one of my favorite month because we finally get to celebrate Christmas. Yes, I am one of those crazy Christmas fanatic, and I am not ashamed of it. And because I love Christmas, I thought I would share some of my favorite things about Winter, for the days I just stay home under my blanket and just enjoy how comfy this time of year is.

20151213_114145

Comfy clothes. Because how can you enjoy a comfy day home when you are not feeling comfy yourself? These items are definitely the items I wear the most throughout the season. They make me feel so warm and soft, I don’t think you could go wrong with them. I was so obsessed with the leggings that I bought them way oversized simply because it was the only size available and there was no way I’d go home without them. They definitely look a lot more Christmasy than the socks, I need to find some Christmas themed socks but the colors still fit the season so it doesn’t really matter. Everything came from Primark so it’s definitely affordable for anyone who wants the same type of clothing items !

20151213_113759

What would Christmas be without its legendary music? They instantly make you feel so much more festive, whether you listen to some songs which will make you dance around the house or just calm you down. I have so many favorite songs, I don’t think I could decide which one I love the most among them. I recently bought these four CDs in a pack, containing a CD with classic songs such as Jingle Bells or Have Yourself A Merry Christmas, another one with choirs which I will mostly be using during Christmas diner or times like that, one with Gospel music and finally Sacred Chants. I found it absolutely perfect because it has so many different songs and each CDs has its own kind of ambiance. Plus, it was only 10€ for 80 songs so I definitely thought it was worth buying. Of course these aren’t the only Christmas CDs I own or just listen to but they were the ones I thought would cover the entire kind of Christmas songs.20151213_113825

Is there anything better than a good book next to the fire with a hot drink in your hands? Well, not in my opinion. Because I study literature, I have a lot of books to read for my classes and find myself struggling to read something I chose to read for my own enjoyment, even though I do enjoy most of the books I have been studying. But this time of the year is my favorite when it comes to just relax and reading is probably the thing I do that relaxes me the most, so I’ll never say no to a good book. I actually don’t own much winter books such as ‘The Snow Child’ in the pic above but I really intend to change it because I really enjoyed it when I read this book. So if you have any suggestions of books you would consider good for winter, please let me know !

20151213_113837

Another thing I really enjoy doing at this time of the year during my free time is watching a good Christmas movie. There are so many of them, whether it’s romantic comedy, comedy, cartoon, you only have to pick. I just find Christmas movies to be so great because no matter what, they always have a happy ending and will just fill your heart with joy. And even though it might not snow wherever you live, you can be sure it will in these movies, so just close the curtains and pretend it’s the same outside ! I included three of my favorites Christmas movies of all time but of course these aren’t the only ones I enjoy, trust me ! So get your blanket, your hot drinks and some snacks and just enjoy a good movie !
20151213_113856

Speaking of snacks, winter is probably the best time to eat lots of chocolate without feeling as guilty as you usually do -even though let’s be honest, I never really feel guilty when it comes to chocolate. If you feel a bit down, chocolate is known to be a good way to improve your mood but even if you don’t feel that way, there isn’t a good enough reason to stop you from eating some. My cousins living in Germany came to visit last week and because Saint Nicolas is celebrated where they live, they came bringing a bag full of chocolates for each of us and I just fell so happy about it, it already felt like Christmas to me ! And yes, I struggled to find chocolates to include in the pic because I ate most of the things they gave me. No shame though ! 😉

What are your favorite things about Christmas and Winter in general? 🙂

Dance Party & Sing Along

Hello my little peanuts !

Today’s post may be shorter than what I usually post (I can hear your sigh of relief from here ! ;)) but I just wanted to share something I’ve really been enjoying lately and that is a playlist I originally made for myself. Whether it is in times of stress or happiness, I usually find myself having lots of dance parties in my bedroom, just loosing it and it makes me feel so much better. To make it easier for me to have fun listening to my favorite tunes, I decided to make a playlist with all of them so I don’t have to think about what I want to listen next. I just go with whatever is next on my playlist and I love the kind of surprise I get, wondering which song will be playing next.

I usually make playlist for pretty much everything, and I thought I might not be the only one really enjoying them so I decided I’d share them with you as well, because who doesn’t like to have dance parties and sing along their favorite songs as loud as they can? It’s liberating, really. So I put a link to my playlist named ‘Dance Party & Sing Along’ and feel free to listen to it and have fun !

I might add some new songs over time and if you have any suggestions, tell me about it in the comments or through my social media which will of course be linked below ! I’d love to know what YOU listen to during your dance parties !

Have a good week ♥

On repeat | Little Mix – Get Weird

little-mix-get-weird-album

Hello to you little peanuts !

I have been wondering all weekend whether I should make a post about the events in Paris -considering I live there myself- or if I should blog like I usually do. I decided that, considering that this blog is my happy place, I do not want to include this tragedy, even though it affected me and I can’t get it out of my head. But I don’t want to let them win, I’m not gonna let them stop me from living and being happy. I’d rather risk my life but still enjoy every moment of it than live in fear, because I don’t call that living.

And what better way to share some light in this moment of darkness than telling you about something I’ve really been enjoying this week? Especially because in my opinion, music is one of the best way to get through hard times.

One of the biggest regrets of my life is the lack of girl-bands in the music industry. Even as a little girl, I’ve always loved girl-bands and me and one of my best friends were planning on starting one when we got older. Never happened though, mostly because we’re not talented enough haha. But because I am not talented enough to be in a girl band doesn’t mean I love them any less. I’d even say that it has grown over the years.

I always like to watch XFactor, not only in France but in other countries as well, including the UK. But for some reason I rarely get to the live shows just because I feel like the auditions and other things before the live shows are actually the best part but 2011 was different. I fell in love with 4 girls with beautiful voices and happened to win the show that year. And I’ve never stopped loving them ever since.

The girls have come so far since they won the XFactor and I was extremely excited about their new album because we had been waiting for it for 2 years now and I needed new music. Let me tell you that the wait was definitely worth it. I love every single one of the songs and the vocals are amazing. One thing I absolutely love is the way their voices sound absolutely perfect together, they definitely were meant to end up with one-another. Their harmonies are absolute magic to my ears and I love that ‘The End’ is an acapella song, because it allows us to really appreciate every second of it. They already did the same thing in their second album Salute with their song ‘Boy’ which was actually one of my favorite song of the album. But in a way, ‘The End’ is even better than ‘Boy’ because it’s even more emotional and as you probably know by now, I like to be crushed.

But another thing I really enjoy about Little Mix is that they can also make music that will make you want to dance and sing as loud as you can because some of their songs are just really fun. They’re definitely the ones I like to put on when I just want to have a dance party in my room or find music that will make me want to do stuff. It will help you get through a hard day or just shake it off at the end of the day.

I hope that this album will give the girls the success they deserve because they deserve so much more than what they currently have. One thing’s sure, I’ll be there every step of the way ! Make sure you’ll be there as well because something tell me it’s gonna be a hell of a ride ! 😉

Have a good week ! ♥
