Fresh Matters - Skincare

Friday, 14 April 2017

I can no longer deny that I've slowly become obsessed with skincare products, but in my defense, and you'll have to agree with me, they are pretty amazing. I've had many trial and errors with products in the past, and although I've discovered ones I carry dear to my heart, this time I really wanted to get to know my skin and use items that will adequately benefit it. I went to see a dermatologist and based on my skin type and my habits she was able to give me some great recommendations, and in a matter of a week, I already saw a major difference. So I wanted to update and share with you guys my tips and routine too

The first products she recommended were the Gel Cleanser and the Mattifying Moisturizer from La Roche Posay. I use the cleanser in the morning and at night before I shower, and the moisturizer in the morning too. They're both for combination or oily skin; I was amazed at the fact that they are so gentle on the skin, truly cleansing and kept my face rid of oil throughout the entire day. Worthy of many heart-shaped emoji's!

The second product is the Blemish + Age Defense by Sans Ceuticals which is to treat blemishes and little imperfections whilst also keeping a healthy and glowing skin. It's super light and soft when you apply and does a great job at smoothing your pores too. This product is more on the pricey side but it's truly worth it and lasts forever since you only need a few drops at night.

When I need to treat a specific pimple or something, the Grease Lightning by Lush or the Drying Lotion by Mario Badescu are my holy grails. They're really natural and you practically go to sleep with a pimple, and wake up without one (well, almost, but it's as close as it gets!).

If my lips are dry and chapped or even when I want to add a little color and moisture at the same time, Vaseline is my go-to and one I never leave the house without. Bonus that's it's also practical and easy to store anywhere. A few other products I love are the Apricot Scrub by St.Ives, the Aloe Moisturizer by Mario Badescu and the Rose Water by Santa Maria Novella. The Clarisonic facial cleansing brush is also amazing if you're willing to step up your skin care and it's incredibly more effective than using your hands and truly truly cleansing.

How to grow your social media

The title of this post is actually something I get asked a lot, so I thought it'd be a good idea to take a little space on my blog and summarize what I've learned since I started my own social medias. I'm not an expert but I have picked up some useful tricks along the years. I'm sure you've probably heard a few of them before as they are actually important and make a huge difference, but apart from that, I hope it truly helps some of you out!

Spring Edition

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

Spring is just around the corner, in those slowly blooming flowers and in the rosy scent that fills the streets, which makes for a perfect Parisian vibe. That's exactly what I'm going for on this new season, so do expect lots of stripes, sweaters, and loafers from me and oh, don't forget about some dainty jewelry pieces and a classic bag to pull it all together. I think I've said it all now hehe. Well, I want to share you guys some of the items I found that are staples for these next months and of course, have a french touch about them.

Quotes for a sweet day

Friday, 10 March 2017

Bonjour, loves! This year I made a resolution to put to use the Law of Attraction and also to meditate more, and so far, it's all going really good. I truly think that if you focus and believe in the good side of things, that's what you'll attract. So starting the day with some positivity and a little bit of love can honestly make a huge difference since it's not only sweet but actually motivating. Therefore, I've gathered a few of my dearest and most inspirational quotes to kick start the day in the best way.

Turquoise Treasure

Wednesday, 8 February 2017


This is one of my firsts posts of the year and I'm super happy that it's about two incredible pieces of jewelry that I've been gifted from Black Orquid. I was (and am) over the moon when I opened the small bag and found such a gorgeous ring & ear cuff. Both items are made of sterling silver in high quality.

The Angela ring has the most beautiful and magical turquoise stone, which is one of my favorites. It grants protection, helps healing and promotes inner balance. It's also the perfect touch to an outfit and gives off an epic gypsy-bohemian vibe (and that wins my heart)!
The Billie cuff is an amazing way to spice up your ear game and make it super cool and fun. I recently got a second earring (it actually didn't hurt!) and I can't wait to get a third (!!) so adding a cuff is the perfect way to finish off.
