How much time in life do you spend waiting? Waiting is an inevitable act. We wait for the train to come, we wait for our coffee at Starbucks, we wait for our colleagues, we wait for our shifts to be over. Sometimes it feels like we are stuck in an endless loop of waiting, constantly putting our lives at halt and waiting for things to be over instead of just living them. They say that people wait all week for the weekend, all year for summer and all life for happiness and I do believe that this statement is true… View Post

When you think about France what is the first city that pops into your mind? I bet it’s Paris or maybe Marseille or Bordeaux. When we visit a country we usually stay in the biggest cities or just travel down to the seaside where we spend days lying at the beach, letting go of all the worries with the crashing of the waves. Whilst I am travelling France I’m discovering different sides of the country and I find them all equally interesting and unique. Having stayed near the seaside in the west of France for a while I took the… View Post

Of all the posts floating around the internet A-Z posts are amongst my favourite: they are a lot of fun to write and they allow you to step into the world of another blogger and to get to know her or him a bit better. Although I have always loved this post I have never actually written one myself so I thought that today it was time to change that. So here you go xx  A – A, xx. Pretty Little Liars is my favourite series and when I got to visit the set last year I was over the… View Post

Unless you are reading my blog for the first time you know that I was living in the south west of France for quite a while, staying with a French family and exploring the area. Which was even more beautiful than expected, I really fell in love with Bordeaux and no, I’m not even talking about their delicious wine. After leaving the west after a few weeks I was supposed to continue my work&travel experience near Lyon but well, it didn’t work out and I found myself in a place where I had to find an alternative as fast as possible.… View Post

When someone mentions body image what is the first thought that pops into your mind? Is this expression connected to negative or positive feelings? Often it’s both. Most people will agree that the relationship with yourself is the most important one and that self-love is the key to happiness. However, gaining self-confidence might also be one of the most difficult challenges we face in life. We are easily influenced by those around us and with the different beauty standards that are promoted through (social) media self-doubt becomes almost inevitable. I am sure that most of us experience issues with their… View Post

Have you ever gone on a journey alone? The thought of solo-travelling might seem scary at first, at least if you haven’t tried it before. Most people will travel with their friends, partner or family, but packing a suitcase and going on an adventure alone would never cross their mind. I have already travelled alone twice, although the first journey was fairly short. My second journey was along the West Coast of California and the three weeks I spent travelling were definitely the best of my life. When I’m looking back at these adventures I can assure you that I wouldn’t… View Post

To many of us going out doesn’t simply mean putting on a pair of trousers and leaving the house. No, instead we spend hours doing our hair, makeup and choosing our outfit. We just can’t seem to find the perfect accessories, the perfect clutch and let’s not even start talking about the perfect eyeliner wing or the perfect lip colour. Although it can get stressful, I still love getting ready for a night out and usually turn it into a bit of a pamper session as well. But what if we don’t have the time to get ready? Oh, the… View Post

As I’m typing this post I’m heading to Narbonne, a lovely city in the south of France. Can we all take a moment and appreciate buses with free wifi? My morning was rather stressful, I had to take a train to Bordeaux and I arrived at Dax train station to find out it had been cancelled. Great.  Luckily I was able to take another train but my plans to have breakfast in Bordeaux obviously had to get cancelled along with the train. At least my workout for the day is complete because yes, running towards the bus station with a… View Post

Narrow streets, colourful houses and a gorgeous cathedral in the centre – if you have ever visited the south west of France, you know immediately which city I am talking about: Bayonne. A while ago I visited this beautiful place for a day and maybe, just maybe you can remember my Instagram picture of all the colourful houses or my tweets that I’m officially in blogger’s paradise. Which was definitely true – after walking through heavy rain I finally found a little café with shortbread, cupcakes, white tea and the best wifi in the world. If you’re a blogger I… View Post

It is Mother’s Day on Sunday which means it’s time to properly spoil our mothers and thank them for everything they have done for us. Which is a lot. I am incredible thankful to have a really supportive mum who is always on my side and who I can constantly rely on. I wouldn’t know what do without her and even though I am currently travelling I have planned a little something for her and I very much hope that she’ll like it. I love getting creative for Mother’s Day and if you are in need of some inspiration then… View Post
