Week – 3 for me. In 3 weeks, I’ll finally be in vacations and hopefully, by now, I will be relaxing under the sun on a beach. If you want to spend the day at the beach, the key is to make sure that you don’t forget anything at your hotel room or apartment. You have to make sure you have absolutely everything with you. Nothing more annoying than to get really comfortable and then realise that you forgot you sunscreen in your room (that’s not entirely true, I can think of a few things that are more annoying than that but I wanted to add some dramatic effect… ). So to make sure that you don’t find yourself in this unfortunate situation, here are the things I always put in my beach bag.
In less than a month, I’ll be on vacation in Dinard. I went there last year and totally fell in love with that city so we decided that we’d go back this year. I might be counting the days till our trip. And I might already be packing in my head.
Like most people, I hate packing (although the absolute worst is unpacking but that’s an whole other story); packing is always a pain but there are some easy parts: there are three things that I systematically take with me. Continue reading “Three Things I Always Pack For Trips”
We are currently experiencing a heat wave. Wait.. Can we still talk about heat wave when it’s been 3 weeks? I’m not sure. But what I know is that we are all struggling. Big time. My current state will explain my choices regarding the outfits I picked for this month, regarding the colour palette and the cuts.
Weeks 1 & 2: August 1 – 12
I live by that motto. A typical Sunday for me looks like this: I wake up late. I go to the gym (yes, I am that courageous). I have lunch. And in the afternoon: I. Do. Nothing.
When I was a kid, I used to hate Sundays because it meant that the next day I had to go to school. So basically, I enjoyed only half of my weekend which is kind of sad when you think of it. Now I have learned to
like love Sundays. I don’t know what or when it changed, maybe it’s when I started working. When you’re still studying, you can’t really spend your whole day doing nothing without feeling guilty (or was it only me?). Now, that problem has gone away… most of the time.

I’m a proper bookworm. Hence, one of the things I love when I go on holidays is to lie on a lounger and read a book for hours in the sun. This makes me so happy, calm, content. And to make sure I have a good time, I have my go-to books.
Chick lit. I’m not gonna lie, this is probably my favorite genre when on the beach or poolside. I know it’s cheesy and very often quite cliché but I can’t help it, it’s one of my guilty pleasures. And I have 2 foolproof books, one of which I’ve been reading every year for the past 4 years I think. I don’t get tired of it and it still makes me laugh out loud. The other makes me dream of the Hamptons and makes me want to do yoga.
“The Single Girl’s To-Do List” (Lindsey Kelk)
I laugh out loud. Every. Single. Time. How does it start? Rachel broke up with her boyfriend and her best friends try to teach her how to be single by making a list of 10 things she has to do. As I said, it’s funny. It’s also heartwarming. And somehow, empowering sometimes.
