All right, so November is probably one of the most depressing month ever. The days are super short, it’s getting cold and it rains way too much. Thank god for hot chocolate, right? But since I can’t only drink hot chocolate to make me forget about the oh so sad weather (who am I kidding? Of course I can but I’m an adult and I decide not to), I figured that the next best thing would be to remember some of the great trips I took to sunny places. And lately, I’ve been thinking to one of my favorite trips ever: Palo Alto. I don’t know if you know this, but I’m a nerd. So needless to say that I was super excited when I got the chance to go there and visit Stanford University. Now let’s walk down memory lane….
On Friday I went to see Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick’s last movie, namely “A Simple Favor”. I’m not about to write a movie review, although I really loved it so I highly recommend it. But instead, I want to write about Emily’s (Blake’s character) amazing sense of style.
As the movie went on, I thought: I want need to up my (fashion) game.
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 🙂
So, a couple of weeks ago someone asked me what my dream dressing room looks like. And it got me thinking about some “famous” dressing rooms. My first memory of a dreamy dressing room is Jenna Rink’s; aka Jenifer Garner in 13 going on 30 (remember that movie?). And then, Mia’s in the Princess Diaries. And finally, Blair Waldorf’s. Just so you know the level I’m at right now.
These fabulous dressing rooms make me want to invest – some day – in a gorgeous one for myself. Even more so that I’ll probably get my own place pretty soon. Obviously, I won’t be able to afford a huge apartment right away but that won’t stop me from dreaming and imagining my perfect space for when I’m a real grown-up 😉 (wait, shouldn’t I be a real one by now?)

I thought that today I would try a different kind of articles and in doing so launch a new category: Travels.
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page”
These past couple of years, I had the chance to do some very interesting travelling – and I found out that I love, absolutely love it. I travelled by myself, and I think that made it even more special. First of all, I got to choose what I was doing every single day and I didn’t have to consult any other people. Second of all, if I had a problem I had to take care of it by myself too and I learned a lot.
The first time I travelled – far away – by myself was to California, and more specifically to the San Francisco area. For most people, San Francisco is on their dream destination list. I must admit… I was not disappointed! I took one of those tour buses, very touristy but I didn’t care because I wanted to see as much as possible and I had only one day there so I had to make the most of it. And I did!
