Hey my loves! I have internet again. Yaaaay! Can I get an amen? I've yet to catch up on everything but I'm getting there. I should get a bit of time on Sunday to write again. I miss blogging so much. Anyway, I thought I'd be back with a lifestyle post on how to get things done. I'm a big believer of doing things ahead instead of last minute.
FYI : There is nothing wrong with doing things last minute tho... We've all been there...

As it is a busy time of year, here are a few tips to help you navigate:

1. Sit your cute ass down.

2. Shut off your tempting electronics - yes, it means your phone too. Sorry not sorry, dear!

3. Take a deep breath and focus

4. Write down all the things you need to do

5. BREATH AGAIN. - Yep, I saw you. For real this time, cutiepie!

6. Make some tea or coffee

7
Sit down again and while you drink your coffee/tea, try to define an order

8. Do the ones you hate less or are quicker to do first

9. Keep going, BABE! The sooner the better.

Good luck, lovebirds!


Do you have any tips on how to get sh** done ? How do you proceed? I'd love to know and I'm sure others here would love to hear it as well. Let us know in the comments below! Thank you for reading and I'll talk to you soon ♥ x

I've been looking around pinterest to find some proper autumn's outfits inspiration. I found a few gems. I figured you might be interested to see a recollection of my favourite pintrest outfits for Autumn. My favourite autumnal shades are camel, burgundy, grey and black.

Hi lovebirds! I hope all is well. This guest post was written by the lovely Roxana. She is a travel enthusiast and lifestyle consultant from Sydney. She is all about the healthy lifestyle, loves to run with her husband and dogs and has fun cooking exotic meals for her family. You can find out more about her writing following her on twitter and facebook. She is also one of the editors at Higstylife Magazine. I hope you'll enjoy this blogpost and I'll talk to you soon ♥ x

In today’s high-tech world, there’s a whole army of gadgets that help us do whatever we want much quicker and more efficient. Through over 2 million existing apps, you can basically store your whole life on your smartphone. But does the fact that our lives are becoming easier also imply we’re becoming spiritually impoverished?
Technology dictates how you spend your free time, it impacts the quality of your sleep and influences real relationships you have. The world is virtually connected more than ever, but it often leads to lack of real life communication. There are many campaigns that fight for people being more present in face-to-face conversations and laying off the smartphone. But sometimes, it’s hard to balance everything out and find serenity in this fast-paced environment. Here’s how you can appreciate the advantages of technology, but don’t let it control your life.


~ Pick a day to disconnect
There is a pressure to be present on the social media, and many users are experiencing stress because of it. People tend to seek online gratification, creating their online lives that are unrealistic and fake. We’re on our phones constantly: when we ride the bus heading home, we’re scrolling down our Instagram; in the elevator, we check our Facebook instead of simply waiting for our floor. Our tendency to fill in the time with screen time has become obsessive. Pick one day in a week when you’ll consciously disconnect: it will significantly change your overall mood. Use your cell phone the old way (only for calls and messages via which you arrange meetings), and spend a day outside, with your friends.



~ Rearrange your workspace
We live in a consumer society, where we are constantly encouraged to buy new things. This often leads to purchasing stuff you don’t really need, either because you got seduced by advertisers, or because you’ve unconsciously formed a buying habit. Material things can clutter our workspaces, leaving us restless or unproductive. Very often, you don’t even know your messy desk is stopping you from doing your job well and you might blame other things for your pale days at work, such as the lack of sleep or moodiness. Rearrange your workspace in order to find peace in your mind. Throwing away stuff you don’t need is a good first step. Also, consider getting a Feng Shui consultation and don’t be afraid to ask the expert some questions. Feng Shui has a very interesting philosophy behind it and it can be effective in helping you organize your space meaningfully. With its 3000-year-old tradition, Feng Shui is something worth giving a shot.



~ Organize your time wisely
It seems as we’re all focused on our businesses more than ever. It may be because it’s a big competition out there, or due to the fact that capitalism is reaching its peak. You have to learn how to organize your time and prioritize. Many people spend their free time doing nothing but staring at their computers or TV screens. Leisure time is very important and you have to make it meaningful. Some say that the Western civilization, its rapid development and cultural hegemony - caused a certain division in a man, dividing him in two halves. The first half is his body, the second his mind. Popular psychology interprets this as a reason of many modern mental illnesses appearing. You have to devote time to physical activity and do things that give you a sense of identity. Ancient Greeks knew how crucial it is to take care of your body and mind equally: exercising was one of the holistic ways to do that.

Take these simple tips into consideration the next time you feel overwhelmed with the tech era. Remember that world is not good or bad by itself. It all depends on how you adapt to it.

Heeey lovebirds! I hope all is well. I'm a big lipstick lover so it's no surprise that I own way too much lipsticks. Can a girl really have too much lipsticks? I guess no one is perfect. I love Autumn. I love the weather & the colours. It's one of my favourite seasons. I thought about it and decided to share with you my favourite lipsticks for Autumn. What better way to honour Autumn ? Plus, it's a good way to give a shot out to my lipsticks lovers friends. By the way, this could be a good way to discover new great lipsticks. Let's be honest, I'm always on the hunt for (a) new lipstick(s)!

✧ NYX, soft matte lip cream - ROME. ~ It's very natural. It's more of an everyday shade. The kind of shade that would be perfect for work or school. - Kinda your lips but better. It would look good paired with smokey eyes.

✧ Rimmel, The only 1 lipstick - UNDER MY SPELL. ~ AKA my purple long lasting lipstick. I love it. It's a beautiful bold shade. It lasts quite a long time on my lips. It's not drying. It's my favourite lipstick for Autumn.

✧ Adopt, lip & kiss velvet - Beauty and the red. ~ The most recent lipstick in my collection. It's the only French lipstick here. I'm sure you could get it elsewhere but it has the perfect berry/dark red shade. It looks good with everything. It's bold but not too bold.

✧ STILA, Stay all day liquid lipstick - BACCA. ~ My favourite liquid lipstick for Autumn. I did a review on my Stila all day liquid lipstick. I love the shade. It lasts for a long time and I use it as sort of a statement lipstick.

✧ L'ORÉAL, Color Riche - 16 place vendôme. ~ I've fallen in and out of love with this one. I can only wear it paired with my MAC lipliner underneath. It's a dark red. It's not very matte. It has more of a lustrous finish. So it's not my usual lipstick choice... It's quite creamy as well. It's a lovely red to transition into Autumn.

from top to bottom: rimmel (under my spell) - NYX (rome) - ADOPT (beauty and the red) - Stila (BACCA) - L'OREAL (16 PLACE VENDOME).

Let me know what you think. Do you enjoy those lipsticks? What are your favourite lipsticks for Autumn? I can't wait to read your thoughts. Let me know in the comments below. Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x

Hi lovebirds. I hope all is well in your world. I hopped on the Bodyshop wagon. They've come up with some gorgeous things. I decided to only pick out two things. I don't really need that much skincare products. I'm pretty content with my actual skincare routine. In this blog, I'll share with you my first impressions on two products : one of their brand new face mask and their pore-cleansing exfoliator.

✧ The Bodyshop, Himalayan charcoal purifying glow mask. ~
I've tried this mask before. I received a sample when it came out. It's a 100% vegan clay mask. It has been formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil. It's supposed to 'Refine and revive your skin'. Unfortunately, I'ven't tried it for enough time to actually see its effect.

✧ The Bodyshop, Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Exfoliator. ~
This product smells nice. It kind of smells like seaweed. It doesn't look too harsh. It has jojoba beads and seaweed in it so it should be pretty good. It claims to 'Refine your pores whilst deeply cleansing your skin' which is what I'm looking for in a exfoliator so we will see how it goes.

Have you tried anything from the Bodyshop ? What new beauty bits did you pick up? I would love to know your thoughts. Let me know in the comments below :) Thank you for reading and I'll catch up with you soon ♥ x
