Hello everyone !
If my new year’s resolution was to spend less money, then I can already forget about it ! I discovered this jumpsuit
through a friend (Big up, Marlène :p) and I have to say that I’ve kinda been obsessed about it ever since. So here am I, ordering this little baby in a bright red 😀 Can’t wait to receive it and pair it with a black blazer
and a nice clutch
That being said, my days have been relatively boring lately, and the weather is still super cold..which means : dry skin.. Oh how much I hate it ! But I got you covered : this body cream
will save you ! It’s super duper nourishing and smells heavenly good
because of the cherry blossoms and rice milk that’s in it !
I hope y’all have a nice weekend !
PS : There has been so many bad new lately..
I wished the world would be a more peaceful place.
My thoughts go to the victims of the « Charlie Hebdo » attack.
Hello everyone !
First, I apologize for having neglected you, wordpress world.. I was crazy busy with studying and then I went back home for 3 days, for Christmas, and right after that my Mister Perfect came to visit me for a week ! It’s been busy but it’s been great ! And that’s why I didn’t get much time to write here, I’m sorry !
That being said, I hope you all had great holidays, a great time with your family or loved ones for Christmas, and a happy new year !!
So while my Mister Perfect was in Budapest, once the mandatory visit to the Castle and to the baths was done, we kind of run out of ideas (so we went to Vienna, but that’s another story !). But there was one place that caught our eyes (or I should say, our stomachs) and it’s a japanese restaurant called TOKIO ! It’s a bit pricier than the normal hungarian restaurant you can find here, let’s be honest. But it’s by far the best japanese I’ve ever had here ! So if you ever come to Budapest, do me a favor and try this place out, and you HAVE to try the « Tokio Cheese Rolls » ! 😉
And that brings us to my next point : my new year resolutions ! Eat clean. It’s hard, sometimes, but I realized it’s so much better in every way : clear skin, healthy body (and mind) but most of all, self-confidence ! At least for me. I know people that are a bit chubbier and super self-confident, and that’s great, that’s how everyone should be : confident in their own body. But I know it’s not my case, I just can’t act like that.
But you know what ?! I believe we all can achieve what we want ! So stay strong and stay focused on your goal 🙂
How did you spend your holidays ? And did you take any resolutions ?
Hello everyone ! I’m still in the middle of exams but I thought i’d share another recipe with you. When I’m stressed I tend to eat more sweet things than usual (unfortunately) but after all, one piece of chocolate or cake once in a while won’t harm you 🙂
It’s been a while I haven’t made this chestnut-cream cake (called « Ardéchois » in french) and I thought it’d be a perfect recipe for winter (plus it’s super easy to make !)
You’ll need :
• 2 eggs
• 100 g sugar
• 100 g flour
• 100 g butter
• 200 g chestnut spread/cream (I used this one from Clement Faugier)
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• 2 tablespoon of rum (optional)
• 1 pinch of salt
Preheat the oven at 180°C.
You’ll then have to mix the eggs with the sugar and the pinch of salt in a bowl. Then add in order the flour, the baking powder (mix mix) then the butter (preferably soft) and the chestnut cream (and finally the rum if you decided to put some).
Pour everything in a cake pan and leave in in the oven for 40mins (check with a knife if it’s cooked through)
And finally, enjoy with a cup of hot chocolate, or tea 😉
Take care !
Hello everyone ! I hope you guys are doing fine ! I’ve just been my usual self, leading my uneventful life at home with my books and lecture notes, these days ^^
Finally, the pictures from this week are out ! It was pretty experimental for some of them (that I’ll post later on 😉 ) but it was fun, it’s always nice to try out something different !
Talking about Christmas inevitably means that you’ll have to worry about gifts, at some point. I find it harder every year to find nice and useful gifts for my loved ones. Especially for guys (may it be dad, boyfriend, best friend) because if they do need something, they’d usually get it themselves before you have the chance to think about it…
For girls, it’s easier, let’s be honest ! If some of you still need ideas (or you just want to make a gift to yourself), you should go have a look at Stine A. They make super cute pieces of jewelry, of a good quality and it’s affordable ! I personally love the dots collection (Santa, if you hear me 😉 ) but again, pretty much everything is cute ! The only con, is that you’d have to google-translate your way through their online shop which is in danish, but after all, it’s worth it 😉
What have you put on your wish list ? Or what are you going to gift your loved ones ?

It’s already this time of the year ! It’s crazy, I feel like this year went by pretty fast, although everyday felt like ages to me. I love december, maybe because my birthday is coming, but also because of Christmas, of course, and because it’s the only time of the year you’ll be sure all your family will get together ! Paris is really magical in December, with all its lights, the malls have set decorations in their windows, you’d go shopping for gifts.. it gives you the feeling you’re on holiday weeks before already 🙂
I’d be a lot more excited about december if it wasn’t my exam period right now (and for the next 2 weeks) because yes, it is stressing me out I mean, it makes me happy that in 2 weeks only, I’ll be on holiday, but it doesn’t feel like enough time to me, to master my topics.. Oh well, I’ll just try my best ! (and have no social life until then ^^ ) So I apologize in advance if I’m not posting as much as usual !
I got myself a new foundation since mine was almost done anyways, it’s the « Studio Face & Body Foundation » from MAC. I’ll be trying it on for a shoot this evening, so we’ll see how it looks like with studio lights ! 🙂
Here is a little preview of a before/after look (don’t mind my dark circles please ^^ )
On the right picture I’m not wearing any make up and on the left one, nothing else but the foundation. It’s nice as it’s liquid enough to make it easy to put on & blend, and it’s very light, thus it won’t clog your pores but don’t expect a total coverage, you still can see pimples through it. Also, it’s not a foundation you can build up (it’ll just leave your skin sticky), I’d just put one layer to even things up. Overall I’m quite happy with it 🙂
Take care and don’t catch a cold 🙂
Being sick for the past few days, I didn’t get to do anything too exciting, but I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving had a good one !
Yesterday I got the surprise to receive a little parcel from my Mum and that made my day a lot better ! One thing I miss from Paris (among others) is the food ! So imagine how excited I was when I saw that she sneaked in my Starbucks tumblr, two pieces of chocolate coated chestnut cream ! It has to be one of the yummiest things I’ve ever had!
Another tradition of ours is that since I was I kid, I’ve always had an Advent calendar in December. It used to be a big sock filled with chocolates and for the past few years it’s just been a card with little pictures for each day. Even tho I’ve been living in another country for the last 4 years, she always managed to send me one, and so did she this year too !
Do you have any traditions for December before Christmas ?! 🙂
What I was dreading the most happened : I managed to get sick already, and that’s possibly the worst timing for it. Oh well at least I now have a good reason to stay in bed and pamper myself right ? First on the list is : make tea, heaps of tea, to stay hydrated. (I’ve been loving Kusmi teas lately)
Number 2 is facial masks : I’ve got a bunch of sheet masks from Korea. Besides from supplying moisture to your skin, they have this cooling effect which is perfect for times like now, when your head hurts, your sinuses feel blocked and you overall feel like ‘Rudolf the red nosed deer’.
Also I’ve been craving for pho since I woke up, I mean, what’s better comfort food than hot soup with noodle and meat ?! (I wonder if they have pho delivery here ^^) And to top everything, I’ve ordered two lipsticks from that new MAC collaboration I wrote about, a few posts ago. And that makes me happy !
One thing I don’t like about living in Hungary is that you barely get anything interesting when it comes to fashion/beauty products. Let’s face it, a lot of the brands are american and for the few you actually get here, they’re a lot more expensive. And forget about special collections, you’ll never get to see them in Budapest. So with the help of this lovely and pretty lady and my Mister Perfect, I got one shipped to the US and one to Australia ^^ (talk about being international, uh !) Now I can’t wait to receive everything 🙂
That being said, I wish you a nice day !
Bundle up and be careful to not catch a cold like me 🙂
