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?

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

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?
