If you had only one day to live, how would you live it? A rather complex question that has probably crossed each person’s mind at least once. We never actually think that it’s the last day, though, we always assume we are left with many more. So the question about how we’d fill our last 24 hours seems absurd and like a hypothetical scenario we will never actually enter. Last year I read a book that dealt with exactly that topic and although this seems like ages ago this book has not left my mind since. I have already mentioned… View Post

7 billion people. All so different and yet all the same. We come from different continents, different countries, different cities, different streets. We are tall and we are small, we got dark and light hair, we are white and black and everything in between. We follow different religions, different beliefs, different goals, eat in  different way or get lost in different moments. We are young. We are old. We all have stories to be told. And despite all the differences, all the little things that make us our unique self, we are somehow the same. We fear, we laugh, we… View Post

When we left for Marseille on a Friday morning I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had heard a lot about the city and everyone seemed to think differently about the it. It ranged from ‘not worth seeing’ to ‘really interesting’ and despite hearing mixed reviews I knew that Marseille was the city in France I was most intrigued by and that I needed to see before heading home. So when we got on the Flixbus in Nice I was feeling really excited about the prospect of finally getting to visit Marseille. Can I just mention how amazing that bus was?… View Post

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
