Books To Read This Summer

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.

10 Ways To Reward Yourself This Week

10 Ways To Reward Yourself This Week

Hey there,

First of all, happy holidays 🙂 I hope you’ll spend this time surrounded by friends and family ❤

So, work has been crazy for the past weeks (months?) and I have been really (like, reeeaaallllyyyyyyy) looking forward to having this week off.  So much so that I have been planning what to do during this holy moment for some days now.  As much as work is my priority, I believe it is extremely important to take some time for yourself from time to time.  And that’s what I’m gonna do this week 🙂  Here are some ideas  on how to reward yourself this week (or anytime for that matter, because you should!):

Dinard Photo Diary

Dinard Photo Diary

Hey there,

I hope you’re all doing great!

I don’t know if you know this (if you follow me on Instagram, you might remember), but about a month ago I went on holiday to Dinard.  It is a commune on the Côte d’Émeraude of Brittany (it’s also the name of Iwan Rheon’s first album, by the way).  And I totally fell in love with that place.  It’s cute.  It’s charming, The views are gorgeous.  I’m sure that some of you might not agree with me, thinking “what’s the big deal?”; but I absolutely loved it and honestly I can’t wait to go back.

Let’s reminisce about my (too short) trip over there and let me know what you think 🙂

Marrakech – Day 2 Photo Diary

Marrakech – Day 2 Photo Diary

Hey there,

As I explained in a previous post, I went to Morocco for a couple of days in April.  I already shared with you pictures from my first day which included a visit of the Jardin Majorelle.  Here, you can find the rest of the photos: the Koutoubia Mosque (I didn’t go inside the mosque — but the exterior was still impressive) and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place.  I was by myself so I chose not to visit the souks since I’m directionally challenged.  However, next time I go, they will definitely be on my to-see list.

Let’s (re-)discover the red city…

6 Summer Beauty Essentials – What To Pack For the Holiday?

Hey there,

For me, the holidays will be in September but I need to escape a little bit – I’m almost counting the days…  So, I gathered here my 6 beauty essentials, the 6 products I’ll definitely pack for my holidays.  I know it’s early but it’s so exciting to think about your beauty kit, don’t you think?  Besides, I’m pretty sure that some of you are leaving sooner than me (a lot of you probably already came back, sorry about that ladies), so maybe you’ll be interested in some ideas for your beauty kit.  And if you’re staying at home or if you already went on holidays this summer, I still think this post can be of interest: these beauty essentials are still valid for the summer even if you stay at your place 🙂
