Why you should always trust yourself


Hello, my birds! I don't know about you but I'm one of those people who always expect the other shoe to drop. Every time something good happens I expect something bad to happen. It's like the magical order of things. Whenever I manage to get something, I have to loose something in return. This theory has been proven time after time. It's a fragile balance. I guess it has to do with who I'm as a person. I always go whole heart.

Trust your instincts

Over the years, I've learnt to always trust my guts. It has turned out to be the best thing I could have done. I'll admit it I'm very stubborn. I have a big mouth. Maybe too much of it at times. I always go too far, too quickly. I can be quite ill-tempered. If anything, I'm a handful. I'm often described as good only in small doses. I'm buzzing but I try to take time off to reflect on things. To reflect on what I've done and what I need to achieve. Sometimes, you know deep in your soul what's right for you and what you should do. You can tell when you need to walk away. Even if it hurts, even if it's hard, you have to trust yourself. Do what's best for you. It's okay to be selfish sometimes... In the end, it's important to know when to say stop, to start over and when to simply trust that things will work out for the best.


Never look back

If you took this decision, it was for the best. You had your reasons. Now, you will need to stick with it. Deal with the consequences. In my experience, no matter how scared or self-conscious I was, it turned out alright in the end. I have made some decisions over the last few months. Big ones. I have decided to choose myself. It may sound a bit silly but it's as cheesy as it sounds. I've decided to stop caring so much. To start giving less crap. I have stopped doing the things I didn't want to do. I don't have time to spend with people who don't even bother to check up on me. I don't have time or energy to waste anymore.

I have had a bumpy road but I'm very lucky. I've never had to deal with heavy and very difficult things. I've had an average life. I have a mother, a father and a little brother. I had a grandmother who raised me and built me into the person I am now. Even if I wish I was half the person she was, I think I turned out okay. It can sound easy. It wasn't always easy but it wasn't nothing I could not handle. Life has a way of toughen you up. Building up from the ground where it left your breathless. I'm in an happy place right now. I'm hoping it to last a little while longer. I know it won't but in the meantime I'm enjoying it as much as I can.

I hope you're having a lovely week.

If you're searching for me, I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. Let me know if you catch it before I do!


And you, do you trust yourself ?

how I got into blogging

serenbird

I first started blogging in January 2014. At this time, blogging was just something you did for fun. There were not that many bloggers out there. It was no industry, no opportunity for a marvellous job. There were a lot of fashion bloggers. Then, we all came together : the beauty lovers, lifestyle dreamers, foodies and traveling bloggers. Well, next thing you know, there were hundreds of bilions of bloggers all over the world. Soon, everyone was becoming a blogger. Then, Instagram arose and we all started to share more than our lives. We were selling a picture perfect life.

~ Old school blogging

Let's turn back time, my birds. Blogging didn't use to be so perfect. Back in 2014, it wasn't all about selling the dream, the perfect lives, only showing people what they wanted to see. It was more like sharing a piece of yourself, talking about your dreams and passions. It was more like creating a bridge between you and the world. Everyone was blogging for themselves and no one else.

~ How serenbird was born

What was the idea between Serenbird? I wanted a place to share my thoughts. I needed a place to express myself and to talk about the things I loved. In the beginning, I was sure I would never get any readers. I was not doing it for the fame. I was blogging because I loved writing but then the most incredible thing happened. People came across my blog. They sent me emails, followed me, left comments on my blogposts.

serenbird


The world was responding. There were people out there.
And that, my birds, was the most wonderful thing I had ever seen.


~ Why I decided to write in English & how my style evolved

The very first bloggers I followed were InTheFrow & Llymlrs. They are amazing girls with a killer style. They were sharing pictures of their everyday outfits. I was fully aware that I would never be able to do outfits posts. I don't have the resources or the knowledge to do so eventhough I freaking love fashion. So I turned back to my other passion : makeup and beauty products. I wrote very small reviews and started taking pictures. They were far from perfect but I was trying my best. My pictures are still not as good as I want them to be but I've grown to love my blog. My style has grown and evolved. I love composing pictures, mixing patterns and playing with lights. As for my writing style, at some point I even tried to write my blogs in English and French but ended up sticking to English. It took too much time and I didn't have many French followers. I prefer writing in English anyway so I didn't see why I should do something I didn't like.

While I know I would never be a famous blogger, I'm very happy to be in the position I'm now. I have given a lot of time and efforts into this blog. What I am most proud of as to be you: my birds. I'm the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you for making SERENBIRD real. I would not be there if it wasn't for you. Now, I'm not only writing for myself, I'm writing for you, my birds. ♥

What about you, how and when did you get into blogging?

The bodyshop face mask routine

thebodyshop-serenbird

Hi my lovebirds,

This is a small review/the face masks combo I'm using at the moment. I've recently went back to the Bodyshop because they started to make Vegan products. As you might remember, BEFORE, the Bodyshop was far from respectful of animals. They were testing on animals and using them to make their products... I do not understand how it could still exist in 2017. Can't we ever stop being crual? Now they have launched a petition to ban animal testing.

The bodyshop, japanese matcha tea face mask.
I use this mask once a week - well, sometimes a bit more often. I like that it's a bit creamy and it's softer on the skin than the hymalyan mask. It's almost like it's a face scrub as well. It has such a funny texture for a mask. My skin always feels better afterwards.

The bodyshop, British rose face mask.
When the weather gets colder my skin tends to get very dry. I love using this mask once a week to give it a bit of moisture. It doesn't breakout my skin either. It feels like the perfect amount of moisture.

Both masks work very well together. They are both good on my sensitive skin. I can recommend it to anyone looking to have a complete face mask skincare routine.

Have you tried any of the Bodyshop's Vegan face masks?

Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x

Autumn goals


Hello my lovely birds,

I'm a huge fan of autumn. I'm one of those people who love falling leaves, colder days and crisp air. I love plaids, blankets, candles, knitwear and boots. I have decided to start doing a form of bullet journal. By that I mean, start writing down things I want to do each season and come back to you on them. What did I achieve? What didn't I do and why?

#1 Kick ass at my new job
I started a new job a couple of days ago. I freaking love it. I want to be as good as I'm supposed to be. I don't think I've ever wanted anything as much as I want this to work out.

#2 sleep more
I don't get enough sleep. I'm one of those people who are always tired no matter what. I've discovered an ability of falling asleep anywhere at anytime. I can litterally fall asleep in an instant.

#3 see my friends and family more
I didn't get to see people much last year or this summer. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to get to catch up with some old friends at the end of summer. I definitely want to find more time to spend with the people I love.

#4 blog & be on social medias more
I love my blog. I have not had as much time to blog last year but I got back into it this summer and I plan on pushing it further. I want to go back to my older days of posting two to three times each week. I want to develop my instagram and take part in more twitter chats. I enjoy it way too much.

#5 spend less & save more
I have been spending too much the last few months. I need to get back on the right track. I already do a weekly declutter of my wardrobe which has been really helpful. By the way, if you want you can check out my Depop & Vinted. I need to save up a bit more now.

What do you wish to achieve this month?

Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x

5 European places I want to visit


Hello my lovebirds,

I hope all is well. I’ve been thinking a lot about all the cities I have not seen. I’m going on my 24th years and I feel like I’ve seen nothing of what the world has to offer…

One of my goal this year is to travel more. Fingers crossed, birds! I’m still a student so I cannot afford to go the US or to Canada but I’m hoping to manage to see more of Europe. When I ask myself: “where to next?” There are five place I dream of…

― Cardiff
I have a couple of friends who went there and cannot shup up about it since. I kinda want to be one of those people. My lovely bestfriend Lou was there a few weeks ago and went through the same process. If even my bestfriend feels like this is a beautiful city, surely it must have something special, right?


― Budapest
I was chatting with a few Hungarians friends and realized this city sounds amazing. I don’t know why I didn’t think of going there before. It looks very different.

― Krakow
I will blame this one on my polish friends. It turns out that in two years, I have met a couple of wonderful polish people. They have taught me a few polish words and made me some polish food. I have come to a point where I NEED TO GO TO POLAND NOW.

― Belfast
I almost ended up living there. I chose Limerick instead and was always left wondering about what would have happened if I didn’t. Belfast looks pretty good. Northern Ireland are you as amazing as your irish sister?

― Cornwall
After reading this blogpost, I fell utterly in love with Cornwall. I never thought of it before. I don’t know exactly why. It looks breath-taking. I can’t wait to see it for myself.


What's on your travel wishlist?

Birthday wishlist


Hello my birds! In case you did not know it yet, I'm a big lover of birthdays. I get very excited about my own birthday. I'm the kind of girl who will be speaking non stop about her birthday for the whole month. I know, very corny. What can I say? I'm a lover of cakes. I'm hoping to get everyone in the same place this year and celebrate it with most of my friends. So cross your fingers for me, pretty please, okay? I'm hoping that my 24th birthday will be better than my last birthday... It should not be too difficult...

Anyway, here is what I've been lusting over this month... and what I will maybe get for my birthday...





I already know my mom got me the wallet so I'm pretty much over then moon and can't wait to use it ♥

What's on your wishlist?

the skincare update - Sept. 2017


Hello my lovebirds,

I hope all is well for you. For those who went back to school, I hope it went very well. New year, new resolutions. I wish you to have an amazing year at work or/and at school.

I bought a few skincare products. Thus, I've added a few new things into my (night) skincare routine. I thought I would share with you, my thoughts on every product.


― Kiehl's, Ultra facial cream & midnight recovery concentrate.
I use this cream every night with a drop of the midnight concentrate serum. You don’t need to use a huge amount of product. Let’s just say a little goes a long way. I was offered a sample of this face cream and simply fell in love with it. It gives just the right amount of moisture. It’s not too greasy either. Paired with the serum, I always wake-up feeling like I have an amazing skin. I was afraid the serum would be too greasy but turns out it's not at all. I only use a drop or two every night and it's just wonderful.

― Kiehl's, creamy eye treatment.
I bought this product in Italy. I have wanted to try this product since March and finally made the big jump. I’m not disappointed. I feel like my eyes are less dry but I think I might need to switch for something for my dark circles issue. My dark circles are not less dark but there are still some dark circles here. I might just be destined to have dark circles for the rest of my life…


― The bodyshop, tea tree oil.
Thanks to a PR sample, I got to try this product. Well, I didn’t think magic existed until I first started using this… It does wonder. It gets rid of any blemishes I could have after only a few applications. I use a Q-tip to apply the product where I want it to be. It seems more hygienic and this way I can be sure to apply it directly on the right spot. Mmm, so charming, isn't it?

― Liz Earle, Cleanse & Polish cleanser.
This is an old time favourite. I’ve been using this product for over 3 years now. I don’t remember where I first discovered it… I think it was back when I lived in Ireland with one of my bestfriends. I always gravitate toward this cleanser. I have yet to find something as good as this one.

― Garnier, skinactive micellar all in one.
Whenever I feel lazy or need a quick make up remover, I reach for this product. I’ve seen it a couple of time on the blogosphere. I agree with the reviews, it’s good quality for the price. I will definitely be repurchasing it even if it does take a few try to completely remove my eye make-up.

What's new with you? What's in your skincare routine?

Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x

5 good things


Hello lovebirds! I hope you're doing very well. It's that time of the month again.

August went by so quickly. This whole year went by very fast. It was not an easy year but god, it was worth it. I have no regrets. I lived it fully. I probably didn't sleep enough and didn't eat healthy enough. In the end, who cares? When you're happy doing the things you love with your people, the rest doesn't really matter.

1. My family who was there for me all the way. We have had our ups and downs but in the end, it only brought us closer. At this time last year, it was pretty bad between us and when I look at us now... It's simply amazing.

2. My gift: Italy. It was my first - and only - big trip this year. It was the only break I could take. I had such a good time. It's the only time off I've had in over a year and a half.

3. This photoshoot. It was the first time I did something like this and my friend Sara was amazing. I'm smitten with what she did.

4. My former colleagues. Guys, if you're reading this: thank you so much for everything. I have had an amazing work year. I've been lucky enough to have amazing co-workers. They are the best thing about my old job. I'm going to miss them.

5. My friends. My birds. My incredible support system. Sometimes, I simply can't believe how lucky I am to have people checking up on me and to have such amazing nights and days with them. Having 545 birds following me is also surreal. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I honestly don't know how they manage to put up with my shit on a daily basis. You deserve a fucking medal.


What are you grateful for this month?

Wildheart with a gipsy soul

Aix-en-Provence, France


She’s the type of woman who dances in the rain and swims naked under the moonlight. She will stop everything to help an animal in distress and will fight alongside those who’ve been wronged. She is strong and beautiful—and can be hard as hell to love. Loving a wild-hearted woman means checking your ego at the door: know that you’ll never own her heart. You see her heart is wild as she wanders on her own path letting the wind guide her way. She believes in karma, crystals and good coffee. She is a nomad, always stretching her wings and ready for the next adventure.
– Michele Genzardi.


My favourite quote has to be this one: “not all those who wander are lost”.

I have done a lot of wandering in my life. I never stay somewhere for more than a year. In fact, for the first time, I'm breaking the circle. It’s been 1 year and a half now. I like my flat. I am close to everything. I can travel. I can see my friends. I’m starting a new job soon. I’m moving. Moving up. Moving forward. I never stop. I never take a second to breath. I’m holding on. Not letting myself catch a break.

I feel more alive when I’m traveling. By this time next year, I might end up in England or Ireland. Who knows? Life is way too unpredictable. I’ve learnt to live it day by day. One day at the time. I want to see more of this world. Traveling is good for the soul. It inspires me and it helps me grow as a person. Everyday, I feel the need to meet new people & talk to strangers in the street to feel alive. I like hanging out with inspiring people. I thrive in a friendly & driven environment. I can’t do calm and quiet anymore. I don’t have any time to lose.

I might have already lost too much. Mostly time, energy and love. It’s all conceptual. I go where life takes me. I grab any opportunity coming my way. I open every door. I have no regrets. I always say yes. I am constantly on the lookout for new adventures.


Thankfully, I have people by my side who are more careful than I am and can bring me back to the right set of minds. I should think before I go, before I speak, before I rush into everything. I shouldn’t rely on others like that. It’s not fair on anyone.

It’s like I don’t have time to stop. I’m a girl on a mission. What’s my mission? Taking everything life has to offer and enjoy it while I still can.

I’m afraid of settling down. Stepping down. Taking everything in and wonder. I’m a gipsy soul. Unsure of everything: “surrendering gratefully to wherever life takes me. “ I’m hard to gasp and love. I’m intense. Too quick to follow. Is that why they always leave?

What are your thoughts? Do you feel like you have a wild heart?

Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x

What's in my bag?


Hello my birds! I hope all is well. I’m doing my very first what’s in my bag because I like to see what everybody else carries around in their bags I thought I would show you what’s in my everyday bag. Of course, I decided to show you what’s inside my small bag so you won’t be too scared by the amount of crap I take with me everyday ahahah


― the handbag.
Please note that this is my only designer handbag. I understand how controversial those bags can be and would like to point out that I can do whatever the hell I want with the money I earnt, worked and saved for many years. I started working since I was 16. I have always liked pretty expensive things and that's okay. I do not think you need one but I do not regret investing in my handbag. Not many people understand that but that's okay. I'm not asking you to understand why I would rather have one timeless good quality thing rather than a lot of cheap things. Simply respect whatever anyone wants to do with their lives. It's none of your concerns. We all do what we want and should always respect that. This is not the point of this blog. That being said, let's move on, shall we?

As you might remember from my 5 good things back in July I treated myself to a second-hand designer handbag. And yes, I'm in love with it and have no regrets whatsoever. I have always wanted to invest in a designer handbag. For a while, I was torn between a Faye, a Drew and an Antigona but went for the small Drew as I got a very good discount on it.


As you can see there are a lot of room left in this small bag. I can usually fit a few more bits and bobs than those shown in the pictures. I took this bag with me on my trip to Milan and found it so useful. I managed to take with me everything I needed for my days and nights out.

Fyi, my camera is not shown since I am using it to photograph this but it could easily fit inside. I feel like this is the perfect size for me. Besides, after wearing this bag all day in the Italian summer, I can assure you that the chain didn’t hurt my bare shoulder. To be honest, I was afraid it would. The only other bag I own with a chain strap is my Zara bag. It never stays put and hurts my shoulder after a while. For this price tag, it better be heaven on my shoulder. Judging by the past few months, I'm sure I will get a lot more wear out of this bag.



― the small purse.*
This delicate small purse was a gift from Radley London for my 23rd birthday last year. I love it to pieces. It’s so pretty and timeless with its gold metal and black leather. I have worn it for over a year and it still looks brand-new. I have taken it on many girls’ nights out and day trips. We all know how it goes… I can fit pretty much almost all my cards and a lot of coins in there. It’s just THAT good. Forever thankful for this gift from the Radley’s team.

― the rest of the crap.
I have a few random things in there like: tissues – well, you never know when this could come in handy -, chewing gum – I might have an addiction -, one of my fav lipsticks, my earphones and of course my phone.

What about you? What’s inside your everyday bag?

Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x

Life lately


Arguing.

In the big scheme of things, it all sounds pretty futile, doesn’t it? I mean what’s that tiny little thing compared to what’s going on around the world?

I don’t know what it is. I’m not really sure when it happened but I have changed. I have gone into this kind of mood where it seems like nothing really matters anymore. Who am I to complain about anything or hold any grudge or judgement over anyone or anything? What rights do I have? How can I pretend this is important when the world around us is crashing down?

It’s not that important. It won’t change my life. It won’t make a difference in the world. Thus, why should I care? Why should I bother? Now, it all goes above my head. It floats away.

I used to be someone who would argue about pretty much anything with anyone. I could be picky and uneasy. One even said I was very opinionated. A long time ago, I decided that I had to change people. I had to make this world a better place. It was sort of my responsibility to fix their lives.

This year has taught me many things. Among those things, there are valuable lessons. I need to see people for what they are and not what they could be.

Life is too short for me to spend it trying to fix what’s broken. Broken doesn’t mean something is wrong. Broken cannot always be fixed. Sometimes, it’s better to simply let it be broken and walk away.

I’m not saying I gave up on people or relationships. I simply realized that it was consuming. It was exhausting to fight those battles alone, to be the only one making an effort. To try to give life to what was already dead. There was no fire left and by trying to light it up, I was extinguishing my own fire.

By trying endlessly to hold on to what was already gone, I was wasting my energy, my love, my time. The negativity was spreading all over me. Having so much empathy that you can relate to anyone - or any situation - is draining. You always put yourself in their shoes. I have this habit of expecting people to do the same. Unfortunately, it seems like something not everyone can do.

Where was that girl who always saw the bright side? That Bossy girl who would always find a silver lining to pretty much anything? She was left alone, cold and tired on the side of the road. What had she gained from giving her all to the wrong people? Nothing. Emptiness.

That’s why that girl has now decided to forget and forgive. To let others, fight their own battles. To let them argue and waste their time on frivolous things without her. She had far more better things to take care of. Sadly, in this universe, what they were determined to bicker about was nothing. If it didn’t involve life or death, she would not be bothered anymore. She would pick her battles more carefully now. Only fight for those who needed and valued her.

What are your thoughts? What’s the most important thing you have learnt his year?

8 (Desert island) products


Hello lovelies! I hope you're doing very well. Today, I'm doing the desert island makeup tag. Basically, I'll tell you why and what I would take with me on a desert island. I had to narrow it down to makeup otherwise I would have gone a bit overboard... I managed to size it down to only eight products. Those products are fairly basic makeup products which would be in my everyday makeup routine.

― Charlotte Tilbury, Light wonder.
The first item on the list is noooo surprise. I'm sure by now you're sick of hearing me go on and on about the Light Wonder foundation from Charlotte Tilbury. To this day, I simply have not found anything as good as this foundation. It's a perfect match for my skintone (I'm a mac NW15). It's light and luminous. It has SPF15. What else can I ask for?


― Nars, Radiant creamy concealer.
Same old. Same old. We all know this little guy. I will always be loyal to this concealer. Well, until I find something as good as this one. My concealer is on the shade: Vanilla. I love me some vanilla - well, i'm more of a pistachio kind of girl. This give me the perfect cover. I can build it as much as I want without having cake layering all over my wee face.

― Laura Mercier, Invisible pressed setting powder (universal).
My little gift from my dear mother is getting emptier... I will definitely be repurchasing it. I cannot live - and leave - without this magic baby. This famous sugar is worth every penny. It's like freaking magic blurry fairy powder. Mama cannot get enough!

― Benefit, Gimme brow.
I'm starting to see a pattern here. Have I become a creature of habits? Oh sit. Once again, if I only use one brow product this one would make the cut. I have the shade 1 and it matches my eyebrow like nothing else. You can never go wrong with this brow-volumizing fiber gel!

― Too faced, better than sex.
Classic choice. Back to basics. I always go back to this baby. I prefer the mini version as it is cheaper and this way I can actually finish it before having to throw it away. Please note: a mascara cannot be kept more than 1-3 months.


― Zoeva, stippling brush & Real Techniques, powder brush.
I own quite a lot of makeup brushes. It's a secret addiction of lazy girls but shhh let's keep this secret to ourselves! This stippling brush is my favourite way to apply foundation. It takes me less than 1 minute to do it: time saver. My trusted RT brush has been all over the world with me and it has a couple of years on its belt. Nonetheless, it still looks hella bomb.

― Stila, stay all day liquid lipstick.
Whenever I'm traveling, going out on a girls night, I will always reach out for this lipstick. Fiery is the perfect red. Am I the only who feels like you can never go wrong with a bright red? Sometimes, I wear no makeup at all and just rock this little baby. I feel fierce! Can you hear me roar, my birds?


What products would you take? What have you been loving lately?

Homeware wishlist edition


Hello lovebirds,

I hope all is well. I don't think I've ever done a homeware wishlist which is quite odd as I loooove home decor. Probably like 90% of the girls I know or follow. I love homeware. I guess the best part of having my own space is that I can design it however I want. I can make it a reflexion of me. It can be my very little happy place. My flat is my home. I love that feeling I get when you open the door. Don't you love that feeling? It comes pretty close to the feeling you get after you're finally reunited with your beloved bed.

In this flat, I've really been feeling it. It's like a blank canvas. Everything is white: the walls, the floor. It's dreamy. I'm loving it. I'm building it one paycheck at the time. Yeah, it's taking time. I'll share a few snaps with you as soon as one room is finished... So stay posted, my birds!

I gathered here items I love and wish I could buy. I can't wait to find out which ones you like! If you have any recommandations do not hesitate to share those with me :)





Here you go. Those are my dream items. What's on your homeware wishlist? Do you like home decor?

Outside the lines


Hello lovebirds,

I'm that kind of person. I trust my guts. I don't do usual. I do weird, out of the box. Stand alone. All or nothing. Ride or die. Jump in or out. No tip-toeing, no thinking before I speak. I don't believe in words. I don't believe in settling for something. I don't believe in second choices. I would rather do nothing than to half do something. I don't trust appearances. They are always misleading. Things are always more complicated than that. There are always two sides to every story.

However, I can understand why someone would consider it. It brings security. It brings some kind of confort in knowing that you won't have to work twice as hard. It can also be a safety net. It's a safe bet.

Life ain't easy. So why should you complicate things? Why should you pick the complicated over the plain simple? Why bother? Because it makes you feel alive. Taking a risk makes your heart beat ten times faster. Being bold and brave are exhilarating. Saying yes - and no when necessary - to life is what makes it so surprising and wonderful.

What do you think about settling? Have you ever had to settle?

Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x
