March is coming and if you are an American student you probably know what it means ? SPRINGBREAK ! Yes, finally that time of the year again. I think that besides Coachella, this is the most expected moment of this hard working year you’re spending. From Cancun to Ibiza, are you ready to live the most intense week of your life ? Time to relax, enjoy, have fun with your friends before going back to the tough reality of exams… But wait, Spring Break is meant for you to spend your day at the beach sooooooo wearing the best bikini is a must but it shall also be comfortable, sexy and resistant at the same time. The struggle is real my friend. And it’s not only one or two bikinis we’re talking about here, but low key a suitcase full of bikinis. I might have the solution right here for you but only have couple days left so you should start to worry if haven’t got anything yet.

LFW 2016 : Blue Mania

blue mania

So far LFW has been full of pretty street styles and runways. I’m so damn excited for Paris, soon ! As for now, I’m looking for the next trend in this fashion madness and it’s so difficult because everything is goal out there. But no matter the weather, those fashionistas have all ran fashion week with success and it’s not even over, congrats !

When I was younger one of my favorite color was blue because there are so many different shades : royal blue, electric blue… Someone told me once that blue suits brunettes better so I guess I was influenced by that as well. Besides, it such a vibrant color that pops out on any outfits as we could see during London fashion week fall 2016. On all the pics I saw on Instagram and other magazines, I think that blue is the color that came back the most and surprisingly it was easily paired with anything. From dark blue to light, bring it on for this year because it’s literally everywhere.

What do you think about LFW ?

3 Affordable NYFW Makeup Looks

Fashion weeks are always my favorite moments of the year especially when it’s cold and grey outside, having those stunning apparels shown is kind of comforting. I watch all the runways to see the coming trends for next season but street style looks are my favorite part. Most of the time, I get my ootd inspirations from street styles and what’s better than fashion week’s ?  But enough of fashion talk because fashion weeks also reunite a bunch of talented makeup artists who sublimate the models with their work. I always pay attention to the makeup because it’s 50% of the runway. Every makeup looks different on models depending on their features. With time, I’ve came to realize that the go-to idea is “the less the better”. Even if there are still crazy incredible looks, a lot of designers have started to settle down with a more everyday look or at least wearable for the common run of people… Thank you ! This new trend also reflects on the style we can see in the streets of New-York, Paris or Milan. A simple white tee-shirt can make a great look paired with original accessories, that’s also another reason why I appreciate nowadays fashion so much. So far so good and after London, I can’t wait for fashion influencers to land in Paris. As always we’ll welcome them with a warm hug and a baguette…heartI’ve selected three of my faves makeup looks among that, one natural to wear everyday thanks to its simplicity, and two other night looks that we can all recreate at home if it’s one of those fancy days. I looked for affordable / drugstore products because makeup artists use that as well anyway. Models skin always look flawless, sometimes it’s foundation but it’s mostly thanks to a healthy lifestyle, a good skin care routine + a good moisturizer.

You should get it…

When people want to talk about beauty I’m so down for it ! I love to learn new tips and tricks. I feel so lucky to be living in a society where you can use make up to feel better inside and out. As far as I’m concerned, it’s truly an art that needs to be taught. But you should never forget to love yourself for who you are and embrace your natural beauty.

Since I started to get into the beauty world, one of my dream was to collect as many products as I could. Now, I can definitely say I will never achieve that. My tastes and love for beauty are constantly evolving and I will probably never get satisfied. I explore and try. I discover and build my own opinion on things. Companies understand that they need to improve their products more and more everyday to keep up with trends that are constantly different. I became really picky with the products I use, especially on my face, but some brands caught my eyes not only with their packaging but with their amazing quality as well.

From Victoria’s Secret to Maybelline, today I share with you my must-haves this year ! Two products that I recently got for the winter time are two lip balms. The first one is the popular and beloved Dr. Rescue by Maybelline. It’s an amazing drugstore lip product, creamy once you apply it with a tint of mint. It’s smooth and gives the most moisturized and soft lips ever just like Burt’s Bees Mango butter lip balm. At first I was not liking the smell but the more I used it and the more I like it. Talking about moisturizing, it’s so cold here (literally Antarctica) I became a moisturize freak. Thanks to La Neige water-bank eye gel, “goodbye” puffy eyes in the early mornings. As for my body, since I don’t have that Victoria’s Secret model body goal, I’m staying with VS body cream and fragrance mist to console myself. It’s the perfect combo to smell like Summer during Winter.

As always if you any suggestions that you’d like to share, feel free to comment and help everyone out. Love you guys and enjoy xx

It’s my pleasure 2016

First words of 2016 so Happy New Year everyone ! I have the pleasure to start this year with a new article to talk about my 2016 resolutions… No just kidding, you all know guys that we set resolutions every year but after a month we forget about it because why planning everything when it’s funnier to live the day as it is ? I hope everyone spent a great year 2015 and didn’t drink too much last night (don’t worry no one will know). Thank you so much for every single one of you who followed me since I started, it means so much. I’m so happy that I continued with this blog, it is definitely one of the best decision of my life. 2015 has been really good to me and I can’t wait to discover what’s waiting for me in 2016…

I posted my first article of My Purse & Me on June 9th, 2015, Bonjour ! inspired by my beautiful Paris. The design was basic but I really wanted to choose something that looks like me, a simple but stylish theme black and white because you know it’s the only “colors” I like haha. However in 2016, I’ve already planned to update everything to another level but you shall see that really soon. I promise and I’m sure you’re going to love it.

3 Outfits Ideas For Christmas

Hello hello December ! What a beautiful month coming up full of joy and celebration. I’m hoping for a lot snow since it’s already so cold. However the most magical moment in Paris for me is the windows display of Galerie Lafayette and Printemps in Haussmann Boulevard (75008), every year is better and better that’s why I like to shop there for gifts.
I decided to share 3 outfits ideas to celebrate Christmas with family and friends because I thought since all the preparations are such a struggle, why not help a little ?
The first outfit is for a dressed up night pairing heels, fur and gold pieces. I like it because there is a contrast of color and texture between the baby pink furry coat, a darker top and skirt accessorized with a gold ensemble.
More fur and black, the second outfit is more relaxed but still chic with a geometric gold bracelet and a pink watch. If you’re scared to get cold well furry up your feet with my recently beloved UGG that goes with everything to make you feel like walking on clouds.
If you are more casual and want to feel comfortable, this last sneaker outfit is perfect for you. It combines red and white to remind of Santa because you actually can’t avoid it. I believe a Christmas without red is not a real Christmas but how cute is the sailor top from Comme des garçons ? I mean roll a cachemire scarf around your neck and put on a beanie to stay cozy.

“Hello, it’s me” not Adele yet but love her new song. How are you guys ? Have you spent a great week ? Well I did even with school. Monday was though like every Monday but after 2 weeks of vacations and lazyness I had to start school. Definitely one of the worst moment.

I created an Instagram account because I am just Instagram addict (sorry not sorry) but more than that, it’s an easier way for me to share what I like and my lifestyle instantly rather than writing something on my blog which can take me a lot of time, that I don’t always have.
