My new highlighter from NARS, the Multiple in Copacabana

~ Nars, The multiple ~ in Copacabana.

I wanted this product so bad. You have probably heard a lot about the Multiple by Nars. I know most people go for the colour called Orgasmic but it was too orange on my skin (I was offered a sample). It didn't seem natural at all so I went for a lighter shade. I love the colour : Copacabana. It doesn't show a lot, it's very discrete. It's shimmery but not too much. It is creamy and easy to apply. I apply it gently with my fingertips. Definitely one of my favourite highlighter ♥

Je voulais ce produit depuis un petit moment donc merci Papa Noël. J'ai eu la chance de pouvoir tester le Multiple de Nars dans la teinte Orgasm mais je l'ai trouvé trop orangé pour ma peau. Le Multiple de Nars dans la teinte Copacabana est assez clair, rosé et pailleté (mais pas trop, c ‘est vraiment léger). Il est assez naturel. J'aime beaucoup le rendu sur ma peau (voir photo ci-dessus). Cependant je ne le conseillerais pas aux peaux trop foncées. Il est très facile à utiliser, je l'applique en la tapotant avec le bout de mes doigts. C'est définitivement l'un de mes favoris. ♥

Healing oil spray by Macadamia

This Healing oil spray by Macadamia is one of my favorite hair products. It is on beauty routine since this summer. I think it is really soft and not greasy at all. It does make your hair shinier. It does not weight the hair down. It is instantly absorbed. I'm in love. And I think you probably would too whether you have fine hair or not. I would definitely recommend this product. ♥

J'ai acheté cette huile cet été et je dois dire que depuis, je l'adore toujours autant. C'est une huile qui n'est pas très grasse, qui sèche rapidement. Elle ne rend pas les cheveux gras et est très légère. Je l'utilise presque avant chaque coiffage et je l'applique tous les soirs avant d'aller dormir. Celle-ci s'est inscrite comme une référence dans mon rituel beauté. J'en suis à la moitié de ma bouteille et je dois avouer qu'il est possible que j'en achète une autre. Je la conseille fortement aux cheveux fins et normaux. ♥

Best memories of 2014 ; My Summer trip

I have been meaning to post this blog for a while now. I haven't had the chance until now. Well, it's a little late now but better late than never, right ? Those pictures were taken during my summer trip accross England. There are pictures of London, Liverpool, Manchester and Oxford. I tried my best not to put too much pictures. Not an easy task! I hope you enjoy it. Have you been there ? Do you like it ?

Je voulais poster cet article depuis un moment à présent. C'est donc avec un grand retard que je vous laisse découvrir mon séjour de cet été. J'ai parcouru l'Angleterre pendant deux semaines cet été 2014. Certains d'entre vous, s'en souviennent peut-être. Je vous laisse donc découvrir mes photos de Londres, Manchester, Liverpool et Oxford. J'ai fais de mon mieux pour sélectionner le moins de photos possibles. Cette tâche a été rude! J'espère que vous apprécierez ce post.
Avez vous déjà été dans ces villes ?


Why I took a step away from blogging

I'm sorry for being shit at blogging this past month. I have no excuses. I have had a very busy month: lot of work to be done and a project for my future in progress. I have been thinking about blogging and if my blog has a purpose. Is my blog irrelevant? I don't know. Perhaps you could help me. However, I enjoy writing quite a bit. I have decided that my blog will now be written both in French and in English. Some of you might know that I'm French. I love writing in English but it has been underlined that blogging in both languages could be a good thing so I've decided to give it a try. I don't know if I will like it or not. We will see. I'm also planning on doing more "personal" post. Would you like that or not ? I hope to get a few feedbacks from you guys ♥♥

Silence speaks when words don't

Seeing people change is not what hurts ;
what hurts is remembering how they used to be.

So yes, lately I've been fighting this huge feeling in my guts. Awful and sad feeling that I could not shut off. The one that kept warning me that things will never be the same. Everything is changing in my life right now. A lot is going on at the same time and it's hard for me to deal with it. I've so many things to deal with. I've been very focused and reflecting a lot on life and everyone that is in my life right now. I can't help but notice that a lot has changed. I've changed. They have changed. And somehow we are not the same and we've drifted away. I don't enjoy all the things I did. I've grown bitter lately. I know that I shouldn't. I'm lucky. Luckier than most people. I have a part-time job, my studies, a family and a home. I kind of lost my good spirit during this holiday season. The Christmas break is always a tough one for me. But I'm working on getting my spirit back. Getting everything back on track. So I'll see you soon, okay ? Don't give up on me just yet.
Change can be good they say. They also say that not everyone is meant to stay in your life. I guess they're right. It's just hard to accept. To let go is not as easy as it sounds. Especially when you've so many good memories with a person. I've learnt that good decisions are never the easiest. So no matter how much it hurts I will do what I have to do.

Pampering evenings with Oleo-relax !

I was given this product by my ant who used to be a hairdresser. She advised me to only use it on the lenght of my hair. I use it on a daily basis - when I think about it haha. Mostly I use it before blowdrying, straightening or curling my hair. It protects from the heat and helps making my hair healthier. It's a serum after all. It makes my hair feel soft, but I don't really notice whether it controls frizz or not. It has a nice sophisticated but warm clean scent that lingers but isn't offensive. It's obviously overpriced, like any salon brand, but smooths and detangles hair and makes it manageable. However, I did not buy this product and I don't think I would have bought it. I am not very found of this brand but I think this product is by the best I've tried from Kerastase.
