Guys thank you so much for sticking with me on My Purse & Me but like I wrote in my last blogpost I am no longer writing on this website anymore. If you want to read more go on TheChinista.com where I post weekly content. Everything is different and you’ll notice it right away on the homepage. I wanted to have the possibility to be more creative and I wanted my blog to be more open and versatile. That’s exactly what I’m starting to achieve with The Chinista. It’s my new identity, it corresponds to what I like and what I’ve always wanted to share with you.

Not that I didn’t like My Purse & Me but I feel like at some point I wasn’t doing it as passionately as before. Ideas weren’t coming because I wasn’t as focused and caring of My Purse & Me which sadened me because people kept reading, liking, commenting and subscribing. I know that WordPress is a big community and almost seems like a family but my idea of MY website didn’t correspond to what started with on mypurseandme.com.

It took me really long to came out with a name that I changed maybe 4 or 5 times (no joke) and even at the end I didn’t feel like keeping it. I knew the content that I wanted to post but I was stuck between four walls because, first I’m not a “geek” and I don’t know much about blogging, hosting etc and then even as good as I wanted to do with what I had the design of my blog looked maybe 45% like what I imagined and from the beginning it I think that I knew it couldn’t have worked.

I tried to figure things out and kept posting more or less frequently but it came to a point after a year of blogging where it was just not going anywhere or at least not where I wanted. I couldn’t stop with a failure and I persisted with another solution. To be honest there wasn’t a lot of possibilities. I opted for, what I think now was the best decision. Today TheChinista.com represents me and my brand. I’m able to create, change, add and delete everything I want without restrictions. I post as schedule even if sometimes I’m just caught by school work. But if you’re still reading, it  means that you should go on TheChinista.com now. I think it’s just cool to see the changes that I made compared to My Purse & Me. You’ll be shocked. Btw I JUST posted this blogpost about my 19th birthday presents which are pretty obvious on the picture above but still go check it out

Sincerely

Another Chapter… Deleting my blog ? New blog ?

Hi guys ! Long time no see and I’m back to explain you why and update you on what’s going on. So since I created My Purse & Me back in June 2015, I loved writing, taking pictures and posting articles but most importantly that I want you guys to like as well. However after a year using WordPress, I haven’t quite gotten the satisfaction level high enough for me to continue on that same road with the same equipments because it’s a big part of why I feel like something’s missing and that whole time I couldn’t figure what is was. Another reason obviously comes from me and my lack of posting which is the most annoying because, I guess, I could of managed my time better than how I did but what’s done is done. Time to move on and change things for the best.

Cream On Top Of Cream

DSC_0369.JPG

Hey guys ! Long time no see… Or at least it felt like a long time. I’m so happy to finally talk about summer since June is almost over but with this crappy weather in Paris, I’m not sure what season to expect. Today is the last day of my final exams, finally over so time to celebrate. But I’ve been through so much stress during those past 7 days and not even because of my exams. In fact if you don’t follow me on Twitter (which you should), I had a tonne of technical problems that I didn’t expect but now it’s all good. However I want to improve the aesthetic of my blog some time soon, I don’t know when yet but I will definitely need someone to help me out.

Today’s article is very random but I have that shelf in my room where I keep all my beauty products and since I’ve done some cleaning, I want to show you the main products I will be using this summer while rocking a dress and my sunglasses. Of course If you follow my blog for a while, you noticed products I have already featured in many of my articles but I like to go back and forth with what I use. Sorry if sometimes it can be a little repetitive, I tried to avoid repetition as much as possible.

High-End Makeup Essentials Under $30

30Back on my regular posting schedule bitches ! I’ve been thinking about so many ideas of articles and stuff that I want to share with you from fashion to lifestyle… I feel like when you want to maintain a “healthy” blog, having a posting schedule is a must. As a blog reader I don’t usually think about the importance of little details when it comes to blogging but now that I’m fully into the game (at least I hope), I’m just loving it ! I have stock full of drafts waiting for me and probably 60% are about makeup .

For years, I’ve been going to Sephora and other high-end stores to buy the newest and most trendy makeup that, by the way, I couldn’t afford but it was just SO satisfying. Now, I look at the price twice and with drugstore products, I feel that high end products have been so over rated because it’s so expensive compared to drugstore, you only the packaging blablabla… As huge fan and client of drugstore makeup/skincare etc. I consider high end makeup worth the price when the quality stands out. Don’t we all want a fabulous and glowing skin ?

My Interior Design : Industrial

 

interior2.jpg

When I think about my dream house, the image that automatically comes in my mind is this old factory transformed into a wide open loft. The space would be filled with industrial furniture, with either wooden floor or concrete everywhere. Often white, black and silver, I imagine lots of plants and large windows to bring the light in, it’s what I envy the most about those lofts. As for the bedroom, I could never see myself sleeping in a plane white room with white sheets and curtains so of course the bed, which is the master piece, would be full of multicolor pillows surrounded by lanterns, a very large colorful carpet to contrast the neutral floor and finally plenty of picture hanging on the wall.

Travel Beauty Essentials

travel

When it comes to traveling, packing is always the worst part. I never know what to bring, what not to, what’s necessary… On the plane or on the train, I prefer to carry my essentials so it keeps me occupied, especially on long travels.

The first thing that’s primordial for me are vitamins. I’m just one of those person who can’t sleep and then I feel so drained and tired. Vitamins keep me energized and at least a little bit awake to get to my hotel. During a travel, I watch movies, play games but by the time I’m done, I look like a mess and my skin gets dry. I’ll usually go for a hydrating mask that I leave for about 10 minutes, then I moisturize and finish by a very fresh/natural makeup.

Mixa Sensitive Comfort : What I Think ?

DSC_0232.JPG

I don’t know about you but I’ve never been keen on deodorant because of the smell. In fact, deodorants usually STRONGLY smell flowers.

Mixa came out with this new range of deodorants with a new circle cap which makes it more comfortable. I was dying to try it because I was interested in the smell. Indeed Mixa has always been one of my favorite brand because their product smell absolutely amazing and fresh so I couldn’t be disappointed about this.

I got the first pink one with My Little Flower Box. My first impression was that it’s a very appreciable deodorant that doesn’t have a harsh smell. It smells fresh, that’s basically the only word I can say about it. It’s simple, works wonderfully and you can put a tonne without obviously showing everyone. Then I got the blue one which is with “Cold Cream”. There’s no difference whatsoever but the packaging. It smells exactly the same however I find the packaging very attractive. As for the circle cap thingy, I don’t think it changes something compared to other spray deodorant. It’s slightly less “aggressive” but no big deal.  Continue reading “Mixa Sensitive Comfort : What I Think ?”

☼ Ready To Tan ? ☼

DSC_0245.JPG

Hello beautiful people ? How are you doing ? I’m honestly so SICK of this sh*ty weather in Paris. Like, come on ! It’s May but I feel like everyday is a throwback to December, it’s almost depressing knowing that Summer is in 2 months ! Can you believe it ? (I can’t but I don’t even know where Spring is)

When I think about Summer, I immediately imagine myself tanning on the beach with the sound of the waves and my sunglasses on. Ironically tanning is the hardest thing because sunburns happen. So, to get a flawless tan there are multiple products for before and after tanning. I selected some of my favorite ones from those I’ve used. There are mostly oils because I find it easier to apply and less sticky. But SPF is the most important criteria you have to look for because depending how sensitive your skin is and how long you are going to be exposed, choosing the right SPF can make a big difference. As far as I’m concerned, I use SPF 50 because my skin is very sensitive and I like a full protection. As for after tanning, hydrating is the key word and what works best is aloe vera because it has healing properties.  Continue reading “☼ Ready To Tan ? ☼”
