S.O.S Spot Busters // Skincare Obsessions

Hello there,

As you may or may not know, my skin has been screaming for help and has been driving me crazy lately, and when I say lately, I mean for 3 months now... I've never had some big breakouts and blemishes issues before so that was quite new for me, and I guess that's why I freaked out so much and ended up crying in front of my mirror for 10 minutes. I tried quite different products and nothing seemed to work, but in my journey to get a spotless skin, I learnt my lessons, and I'm ready to share my tips and favorites products with you. This is not a "Skin Care routine" type of post, because I have not yet found the routine that definitely works for skin... Still searching. 


1) The Power of Makeup
First, always check your foundation! I should have learnt this a long time ago, because the same thing happened to me when I was living in Dublin, I was using a quite thick foundation, not appropriate for my sensitive skin. So I let go of my expensive Mac foundation, and I bought a lighter and more affordable foundation from Revlon. Everything was going fine, until a few months ago when I noticed some insistent blemishes. I didn't think about checking my foundation because I survived around 6 months with it, but last week, it got bad, real bad...

As I freaked out, some friends convinced me to stay away from my foundation and leave my skin be for at least the weekend, so I did, and I did noticed some changes. Of course, I didn't want to mess up those improvement, so I headed to Sephora, after studying the foundations and reviews on their website for hours, and I found a great new very light and moisturizing foundation from Urban Decay, the Naked one. Apparently it helps prevent the blemishes, and so far I'm really happy with it, it feels so good on the skin, but I won't talk too much about it here, just stay tuned, coming to your on Saturday! Whoohoo

Remember you don't have to wear makeup every single day. I just learnt that recently myself, and I must admit those 2 makeup-free day felt so nice. I let my skin breathe. Now, I'm not that confident in my skin to walk out the door without fondation on, but a Makeup-Free Sunday never hurt anybody. 

2) Water is key 
Don't forget to drink water! Hydratation is key for the skin, and this comes from the girl who truly doesn't drink enough water during the day... I know, shame on me... I'm working on that. But hey! The first step to fixing your problem is to admit you have one. At least, I'm truly aware that I'm not drinking enough water. Also, try to stay away from dairy products and milk. Milk is not very good for the organism and not good at all for the skin. I stopped drinking milk awhile ago and my skin was doing great but you know there are some times when a girl needs her hot chocolate... No matter what. 

3) Cleansing with the right products 
I've tried so many cleansing gels and other products before, they are still accumulating in my drawers and I never seemed to find the perfect one. I've found some okaay ones but never the one that would blow me away. In the past months, I found a very good foaming cleanser from Caudalie, which smells incredible and leave my skin soft and great. I've been loving this one, but I heard some good reviews about the Nuxe purifying cleansing gel and I can't wait to try it, apparently it's great to fight blemishes.

4) Masks and other heavenly products
I also learnt that masks, at least once a week, maximum twice, have never hurt anybody. My favorites are from Sephora and they are those sheet mask, quite easy to apply if you have an oval face, and leave on for 15 minutes. I usually leave it on for 20 minutes or so. Quite cold when you first apply it, and you sometimes need to adjust it to make sure it stays on but overalls the results are satisfying. They have quite a large collection you can choose from depending on what you're looking for. I got the Green Tea mask for imperfections, and the Pearl for brightening, which were both amazing. They are quite cheap, but only for a single use. However, they did the gel overnight version, which I got in the Green Tea version, and you can definitely use it more than once, same results, and it's so relaxing. 

I also love lotions to leave my skin soft and nice, I have two favorites, a really affordable one from Neutrogena, it's the Visibly Clear one. I always use it when I feel spots coming out. I also love a more pricy one from Sanoflore, which helps unifying the skin, and keeps it soft. Also! Hydratation is really important no matter what, but you really need to choose your moisturizer wisely depending on your skin type. The one I've been using and loving for over a month now is from Caudalie, it's a matifying fluid called Vino Source. 

Serums are also very good for the skin for a specific issue related to dehydration, redness, blemishes, glow etc. However, they tend to be pricy, but the outcomes are truly amazing. My personal favorites are the Elixir du Marabout from Garancia, which is for imperfections, and it works amazingly! and the VinoPerfect radiance and complexion correcting serum, which is very pricy but great as well to get an extra glow.

That's it for my tips and favorites products for a spotless skin, or almost spotless. Don't forget that you have to find your own routine, the products that work the best for you. Keep in mind that whatever works on other people, won't necessarily work on your face. It's the sad honest true. 

I hope you still find this post useful, I'll see you soon but until then you can find me over on Instagram my social media obsession, and you can follow me on Blog Lovin so you'll know when I post something.

Love,

Elsa. 




Two Lipsticks Obsessions // A Nars Love Story

Hey there,

My boyfriend always says that from the moment I began to buy lipsticks, I kept upgrading, going from Kiko, to Topshop, to Mac, to now Nars or even Estee Lauder. I know, I know... my credit card should be taken away from me... Don't get me wrong, I do not spend a hundred of euros in lipsticks in a month, I usually allow myself one lipstick every months or so. But yes, in a year my obsession has grown and has became unstoppable but we're not here to talk about that. Nope, today I decided to talk to you about two lipsticks that I'm terribly in love with. 


In the beginning of September, I came across Nars' lipsticks, they just caught my eyes while I was shopping at Sephora and I decided to give it a go, even though the price didn't really attract my credit card. The first one I got was the Anita, and it was pretty amazing, so I decided to keep going, so I got another one (Vera) and another one (Charlotte), and another one (Walkyrie) and another one (Luxembourg)... I won't talk to you about my whole lipstick collection here, instead, I'm going to talk to you about my two absolute favorites from Nars: Charlotte and Walkyrie. 

The Charlotte lipstick is from the Nars Audacious lipstick collection, which has around 40 amazing shades named after great lady. And since the formula is amazingly great, I'm thinking about writing another post just about those, but we'll see. This lipstick is the prettiest color I own, and it's funny because the first time I got a dark shade lipstick, it was from Topshop, and I was not so sure I could pull it off, but since that moment, I never let go of my dark shades lipsticks, and they are my go to for Fall time and Winter time. 


It's a creamy formula but it has a semi matte finished, it's so nice to apply and feels so great on the lips. The color is just so gorgeous and lasts a very long time, even when you eat or drink something, or kiss someone (let's be honest), it stays on, the color may not be as great as when you first applied it but you still have a little bit of shade of your lips. The packaging is very minimalist, as I love, plain black, with a little bit of Nars going on, but it's so subtle, you can't really see it. But what I truly adore about this packaging is that it's magnetic so it just closed perfectly by itself, which is always good when you put your lipstick in a makeup bag. 

I've got two other lipsticks with a similar dark burgundy almost purple shade, which you can't really tell due to the lights in the picture, the first one is the Wicked from Topshop, and the other one is the Diva from Mac, but the Charlotte is my favorite, even though the price really hurts. The formula is just brillant, it's so easy to apply and as I said it's a long lasting semi matte lipstick, definitely a killer. 


My other lipstick obsession is not truly a lipstick, it's still from Nars, but it's the Walkyrie lip pencil. It's a Velvet Matte lip pencil and the shade is a light brownish almost corail shade, which reminds me of the Velvet Teddy shade from Mac, but darker. It's described as a burnt coral red on the website, and the formula is quite creamy, with a truly matte finished but it's not dry on the lips. It's easy to apply since it's a pencil so you can really draw the lines of your lips, and it's long lasting. I love the color, even though I'm not very into nude shades but I really like this one, and I've worn it every single day this past week. 


It goes great with a bold eyes look or even with a simple, nude look. Basically, it works with everything, and I feel like it adds a very 90's vibes to a look. I love how it feels on my lips, and I love to apply it. The only bummer is that it's a pencil... and I'm not a big fan of pencils as lipsticks since you have to trim it, so it makes it smaller and smaller... But I really like this one, and I will 100% buy this again once I run out. 


That's it for today, I hope you liked this post! I'll see you soon, but until then, you can follow me on Blog Lovin so you'll know exactly when I post something here, and if you want to know what I'm up to on a daily basis you can follow me on Instagram.

Love,

New Year's Resolutions Update

Hey there,

Is that a thing to share whit the world how you're keeping up with your New Year's resolutions? I would assume people do that every 6 months or so, but it's been over 3 months, almost 4, now and I'm feeling so proud of myself I just needed to share it with the world! Okay, I may not be the best example when it comes to sticking up to resolutions, usually I don't even care about my resolutions, but I don't know why this year I felt like I needed to stick to something for a year, and just focus on my life. I would say I'm quite determinate when it comes to work but also personal stuff, and my resolutions were quite personal and meaningful to me this year, so it was important for me to not give up on those. Moreover, my resolutions are there to keep my mind occupied and not think about every little things that bug me, so it's good occupation. What are you doing today? Oh you know, just try to keep up with resolutions I wrote on the 1st of January, you? 



Anyway, if you want a little reminder of what my NY's resolutions looked like, you can go over there, have a read, and come back when you're ready, or you can keep reading because my resolutions are listed below in a non-descriptive way, or if I'm already bothering you, you can come back later this week, when I have a new blog post up. I swear I won't be offended. I'm going to be selfish here, but I'm writing this post for myself, and to remind me that for once in my life, I'm doing rather a good job at focusing on enjoying my life. Brutally honest eh? 

1) Be more active up there
Okay... fine I must admit I haven't been as active as I thought I will be. ,January and the beginning of February were actually not that bad, I succeeded at posting at least one blog post a week, but then I don't know what happened... I kept being active on Instagram though...  The funny thing is that I wrote a ton of blog posts but there were some silly details that kept me from posting them. Shame on me. 

2) Enjoy the little things 
This one is probably the cheesiest one, but the funny thing is that I'm actually keeping up with it. I don't know if I can remember one silly detail of each day of my life since January 1st but I can say that I did enjoy my days, and I didn't let silly things bother me. I made sure to be aware of everything so far, and just take pictures in my mind of my days to remember. 

3) Read more books
This one I nailed! Since my post was up on my blog I read like 4 great books. This is not amazing but it's one book a month, not bad! I did not stop buying books though, I guess I'm building a pile of books in my room so whenever I want to read I have a book ready for me on the top of the pile. 

4) Buy less things 
It has been a week now since my last real purchase, my last "totally unreasonable shopping spree", my last "you shouldn't be buying this because your balance on your bank account says so", my last "are you sure you want to buy something you're totally regretting afterwards?". A week is huge for me! And even before this week I didn't even go that crazy on shopping, I guess I stayed reasonable, I think, maybe... 

5) Speak out and express myself 
I think I'm getting better at this, it's not perfect yet, and I'm not at the point where I think "I'm gonna say whatever is bothering me because there's no way I'm keeping this thing to myself and let it eating my insides (ew gross)" but whenever there's a conflict, I'll say something if I feel like someone is not treating me the right way, and is just being disrespectful. 

6) Stop caring about what other people think 
Definitely on the way to nail this one as well, there are some time when I still think about "What this person is going to say about this or this", but overall I feel like I'm getting better at doing whatever I want to do or wear whatever I want to wear, without caring.

7) Be more daring with my style
I'm still on the way of finding my personal style, and finding whatever works best for me. I understand now that whatever works on other people, don't necessarily works on me, and it took 21 years to realize this! Hallelujah! 

8) Take time to do things
I don't think I've quite managed the art of "doing actual things", I do spend less time on my phone when I'm with people, I try to at least. It's just that I found it hard to find an actual hobby, for now I'm just studying for my driver's license, which occupies most of my time, other than that, I just read, and write but I want to find an actual hobby that I like and enjoy doing, like creating video, or learning a new language, or learning how to sew.

9) Stop silly things from affecting me 
I thought I was getting better on the whole anxiety thing, and I seemed so far from any stress, I didn't feel any states of anxiety and whenever I was supposed to be in a total anxiety mode, for oral presentation for example, I would feel anxious but at a reasonable level. I didn't have any anxiety attack for awhile, but then it hit me like a clap in the face. And now that I'm home after short vacation, I have such a hard time struggling with anxiety, it's a never ending cycle. Just when you're think you're done with it, well you're not.

10) Keep loving endlessly
Okay forget when I said number 2 was the cheesiest one, this one is. If you know me, you know that I'm not a big fan of cheesy things, and when conversations turn into a "too cliché" talk, I just change the subject or I just shut off. So I'm sure you can assume how uncomfortable I am right now, writing about this. I don't know at what point I am when it comes to loving, I'm still on the process of showing people that are important to me, I guess. But let's talk about the weather, shall we?

That's it for today's post! Are you keeping up with your New Year's resolutions?

I hope you liked this post, I'll see you soon, but until then you can follow me on Instagram to see what I'm up too. I'm quite obsessed with Instagram and I post a looooot of pictures up there. Or if you can't wait to know when a new post will be posted here, you can follow me on Blog Lovin.

Love,

I am Craving Fashion // Seasonal Wish List

Hey there,

I feel like I'm on the way of starting a new series of post, maybe I don't know. One of my New Year's Resolutions was, to put in other words, to contain my addiction to shopping, so I thought "Why not going back to my Shopping Diet?", well it's harder than it seems because to stick to a shopping diet, you need support, support that I don't seem to have, unfortunately (sad face). But anyway, I've been on my shopping diet for a few weeks now, and it's going well thank you, I haven't bought anything in 2 weeks. Anyway, in order to make sure I don't snap during a shopping session and end up buying every pieces of clothes I don't need and that I'm never going to wear, I decided to write down my Clothing Wish List. This wish list is created to make sure that I spend my shopping budget of the month in only one of the items listed below.  So without further ado, here are the clothing items I am craving right now and that I'm only allowed to buy if they match my budget of the month, during a specific time of the month, and under adult supervision (just kidding).


* Comfy Working Girl Pants
I've had my eyes on those kaki pants from Topshop, and I can already dream about how comfortable they must be already. I want pants for those days I don't feel like wearing jeans but I still want to look put together. I mostly want those pants for Spring/Summer time when I'll hopefully be interning. However I do not know if I can pull them off, even though I can clearly picture myself wearing those with a cute T-shirt, a leather jacket, some cute low small high heeled boots and a statement necklace. I've also had my eyes on those ones from Topshop as well.

* Destroyed Skinny Jeans
I've been wanting those destroyed Jamie Jeans from Topshop forever, but the price kind of hold be back. I love destroyed skinny jeans, but I've never crossed the line of actually get some, I'm more on the DIY side, and I make my own ripped jeans... Not the best options I must admit. Total fail. I'm not allowed to use scissors anymore... 

* Oversized Men Shirts 
I'm obsessed with oversized sweaters and shirts, I've always been, I used to steal my father's and my brother's, and I still have some of my brother's but the quality isn't as great as it once was. Now, I'm even convincing my boyfriend to let me borrow his flannel shirts once and awhile. Lately, I've been craving for soft, delicate and classic but elegant looking shirts. Simple but effective. I've been looking mainly at Men's section, but a couple weeks ago I found the perfect one from Asos.

* A Cowboy Belt
From the moment I saw Kendall Jenner wearing one, I've been wanting to get a Cowboy styled belt. I saw different ones over on Asos, but they are all unavailable in my size, but I noticed this Topshop belt recently, that I really like. 

* A Backpack  
I miss my high school days when I carried a backpack and was made fun of. I'm just kidding, but lately, I've had my eyes on this pretty backpack from Urban Outfitters, but also this one from Topshop. Very minimalists, which I love, and I don't own a backpack, and I feel like they are quite practical, so I definitely, maybe do not need one, but really want one. 

* Turtleneck Sweaters
I love some good and big turtleneck sweaters, I saw a few from Zara, but they feel too tight, and I love some oversized sweaters, so that's I'm looking for. Recently, I've had my eyes on this Light Before Dark Turtleneck sweater, I already have it in black, but the grey has been screaming at me. 

* Overalls 
I've been wanting jeans overalls since the beginning of December, I even got black overalls from Pull and Bear, but they were too short and I had to return it. But I'm still searching for the perfect overalls... But lately my eyes were on those little cuties .

* Elegant High-heels 
I used to be obsessed with high heels, you know the kind of shoes effortlessly chic adult women wear in the street ? But I loved it on others because, it seemed to never really work on me, mainly because, for some reason... I cannot walk in those shoes, and every time I put on those shoes, I can clearly picture myself falling or getting stuck in some kind of hole on the ground. I've been eying those babies from Zara for awhile, and I also have a big crush on those ones from Topshop and those other ones from Asos

I hope you liked this post, I'll see you soon, until then, you can follow me on Blog Lovin so you'll know exactly when my next posts are coming, or you can still follow me over on my Instagram .

Love,

Elsa. 



Internet Obsession and other Geeky interests // Random Favorites

Hello there,

Is that a thing to share what you've been loving on the Internet lately? Because I have this urge to talk about a few things that I've been obsessed with those past few weeks. You know that feeling when you love something so much you want to tell all your friends about it? Well I do! and because I'm done bothering all my friends with those things, I thought why not sharing my obsession here? It's kind of a "weekly or monthly favorites" kind of posts except that I'm only sharing things you can find on the internet for free, rather that beauty or fashion products. See it as my Internet Obsession kind of post. I have no idea if it will be a monthly or weekly thing or just a random post because I need to get this out of my mind. We'll see, shall we? 


I've always been a fan of Tom Fletcher's videos. I love McFly, I love their songs, and I think my habits of blasting their version of Don't Stop Me Now in the car, has now turned my boyfriend crazy. When Tom first came up with his Bump to Buzz video, I fell in love with the cuteness in the video, and I was amazed by the wonderful work he and his wife made with this video, I thought it was so creative and Something New quickly became one of my favorites song ever. So it was no surprise for me that Tom's new video for his newly born son, Buddy, was going to be as amazing as his first video for Buzz. If you're in the mood, I highly recommend watching this, this and this videos. 


This is a probably Girls only content! I came across this podcast on Instagram thanks to one of the co-hosts, Becca Tobin. She was promoting the podcast on the social media with pinky and girly pictures of a photoshoot she did with the 2 others hosts, Keltie Knight and Jac Vanek. I gave it a go and I laughed so much during the first episode, I immediately subscribed to the LadyGang on Itunes and now I get one episode each Tuesday, for free. It's so funny, sometimes relatable, very girly, very Hollywood, anyway it's awesome and hilarious. They do this Good Week, Bad Week fragment that I love and find so funny, they also invite guests on the show almost every time, to give their insights on love, life, celebrity... And they answer all their subscribers' questions each week.


If you love Pop-Folk music like me, you should definitely give it a go, and if not you should listen to their music either way. But I'm sure you all heard England Skies! They are a French/British folk band with an amazing album made for those cool days of Summer. My favorites songs from All in Time are Little Warior, Soon and We Are Now. Now, obviously their album is not free, but you can find it on Itunes for only €9,99. You can also find some of their songs, as well as acoustic versions on their Youtube Channel.


Have you ever heard about CTFxC? Charles runs this channel where he vlogs every single day with his girlfriend, friends, family and his 3 dogs, that makes 365 days a year! I've been following his vlog channel for awhile now, maybe 2 years, or 3, since the moment he appeared on the FineBros Teens React video to talk about his brain surgery. Anyway, because he shares his life with this subscribers on Youtube, it was no surprise he was going to share his proposal to his girlfriend Alli. This video got me teary, it's so cute and emotional, I love how he called her father, mother, sister and brother to ask for her hand, it's so cute, it kills me. Plus, the whole video montage of their cute moments together got me thinking about vlogging my life too. 


So this is totally random because I came cross this ad while I was waiting to watch a video on Youtube. You know how it's so annoying when you have a 20 seconds ad before the actual video you want to watch? Well this one was not annoying at all, and it's refreshing to see something so meaningful and true. I've studied their first ad for the #LikeAGirl campaign last year when I was doing research for my Marketing Classes, and I shared it because it drove such a strong message. So now I decided to share their new video! I've never realized how emojis are mainly representing men, especially for the "jobs" section! There's not one single women in those emojis, you have a policeman, a man detective, a man angel... you get the picture. What's left for us women? Dancers, an old lady, a young girl, a woman, a bride, a princess and 8 different girls faces mainly related to hair! What does it mean? And what message does it send to young girls? They can make unicorn emojis but they can't come up with a large range of emojis that are actually representatives? You can join the campaign with the hashtag #LikeAGirl and even share with Always what emojis you would like to be represented! How awesome? 


I've heard about Lena Duhnam's newsletter when I was wandering on Facebook, I told myself that I should give it a look but completely forgot about it. Then a few weeks ago, Emily Ratajkowski was everywhere on my feed because of this article she wrote on Lenny Newsletter about how people, growing up, would just see her for a physical assets, even as a young girl, and would tell them what to do and not do, based on her rather sexual appearance. The article was quite deep and her reflection on how we should determine what sexy is based on our own terms and not others', was very interesting. Later that day, I signed up, and now almost everyday I get an email with an article written by a powerful woman, about style, culture, politics, feminism, work etc. Highly recommended! 


If you're tired of making pasta for dinner, and you're looking for healthy meal, or gluten-free snacks, easy and quick ideas, then this blog is for you! A really good friend of mine from Canada sent the link to me around Christmas time when I was desperate, trying to find a brownies' recipe. I ended up not baking Ashley's version of chocolate brownies, but I signed up to her newsletter anyway because I liked her recipes, and now every now and then I go to her blog and look at what should be my next kitchen experiment: the last thing that caught my eyes? this chicken with basil cream sauce. Yum... 


This is my new game obsession, introduced by my lovely boyfriend, who now cannot stand that I beat him on the Reverse mode. It's a game about colors, forms and a ball you need to get as high as you can. Want to know what I'm talking about? Then download the app! It's free, and so fun to play. You have a lot of different modes to play with: the regular one, which has the same goal as Flappy Bird, or more challenging ones, with a reverse mode, a blackout mode etc. 


Okay so I'm gonna stop there because 10 is so overrated and honestly I don't have anything to share with you, left... So I hope you liked this post, let me know what you think of everything I listed above! 

I'll see you soon but until then, you can follow me on Instagram where I'm driving people crazy with my Caribbean adventure's pictures, or/and you can follow me on Blog Lovin so you'll be notified whenever I post something here!

Love,

Elsa. 


Vacation in Paradise // French Caribbean Photo Diary

Hey there, 

First of all, I want to apologize for my lack of activity here, and seriously I have no excuse. I've been looking for an internship for the summer for 2 months now, sending lots of application (like 40 maybe), without any feed back. I guess I've been feeling under the weather, disappointed and stressed lately, and I didn't feel like blogging. I'm really sorry about that, but I'm back with lots of pictures! In fact, I was away for a week in the lovely island of Martinique, French Caribbean with my family and it was true paradise! I got home a few days ago but I'm still feeling the Jet-Lag running my life for me... Anyway, today, I thought I'll share some photographs from this sunny and hot trip. 


It's funny how it's feels so out of space there, you're a thousands miles away from home, under a hot sun, walking on sand, with your toes close to the clear water, wearing shorts, flip flops and bathing suit, in March! Like what? Seriously, coming home was like a clap in my face. You leave a 30°C country and come home to 2°C and snow... I swear when I was laying on the beach under palm trees, with a book in one hand and ice cream on the other, I felt like it was summer, and I was going to come home to August, and free time. Nope, still in school, still have to wear turtle-necks and boots... But it could be worse.



I felt like every single trouble, anxiety, tiredness, even spots, was so far from me. The only thing I had to worry about was drinking enough water, putting sunscreen every 2 hours or so, and being aware of mosquitos, which was of no good use because I've got like 25 mosquitos bites all over my body, not even kidding... Funny story, I saw the stupidest sign at the airport when we were leaving "try to not get bitten by mosquitos", I'm sorry, what? I don't mean to be rude to whoever wrote this, but did you step outside the airport ? This island is crowded with mosquitos, and there's no way to not get bitten because even with repulsive, they, somehow, find a way to get to your skin and bite you on the most random spots. It's a miracle if I don't get Zika or any kind of virus...




I think I've never felt so relaxed and good, no sight of anxiety at all, even though it hit me right on the face when I got home. I had time, and it felt amazing, I could just focus on reading two books in a week and listening to music. I was so busy in France, I didn't even know Justin Bieber's new album was that good! I was listening to his song on the radio without even knowing it was him! I'm not a Beliebers but I'm not gonna lie, his album is really good. It was also a good time to stay away from shopping, I did not buy anything in a week! It's a record for me! Okay, I'm lying... I did buy a body lotion from Victoria Secret's at the airport, but can you blame a girl who does not get VS in France?




We walked a lot, and apart from going from beaches to beaches and tanning, we did a 2 hours hike in the "jungle" to see some amazing waterfalls, we took a boat to reach the other side of the island, and watch a sunset as we were riding on waves. We walked, we talked to people who live there, and who are so nice, we ate specialties, I drink coconut water out of a coconut for the first time of my life! I had banana gratin! and ice creams... lots of ice creams... No shame! I played fetch with the nicest dog, even though I'm scared of dogs. We took a rain shower on the most paradisiac beach and drove for 2 hours and 30 minutes through mountains with a jungle background with wet clothes on us, and laying on the car seats.




We rented an AirBNB by a small dark sand beach in the lovely city of Case-Pilote, a cute house with a sharing garden full of Palm Trees and coconut falling on the ground, and friendly dogs who belonged to the neighbors. At night, we would stay up playing rami on the terrace, fighting mosquitos with an electric bugs racket, listening to the sound of waves crashing on the beach, and weird bird's scream, which was similar to the sound of the black smoke from Lost.





It was an amazing trip in Paradise, full of memories spent in family. We had our ups and downs, but we had a lot of fun, and some moments of fear, like that night we found a huge spider in the bathroom, and I'm not even exaggerating! This spider was bigger than my hand, and it had hair! I really took this time for myself and enjoying life, and getting to a state of confidence. Even though I did take some pictures of this trip with my camera, I didn't take any real OOTD pictures. However, you can find some over on my Instagram.  



I hope you enjoyed this photo diary, I'll sea you soon, but until then, you can follow me on Blog Lovin so you'll know exactly when my next posts are coming. 

Love,

Elsa.
