Pictures diary : Spring Break in France

HELLO ! 

Apart from reading gay romance books while getting a tan, I actually did other cool stuff during Spring Break.
I went on a family holiday, which is really unlike me during spring break, I usually stay at home and watch tv and study for upcoming exams. Maybe that’s what I should be doing right now, but I’m blogging, so, yes. Family.
I have a part of my mother’s family who lives in Nimes, in the south of France. I used to come there every summer when I was little. They have the coolest house ever, and we always eat delicious food.
So it was a pleasure to be there, and to catch with some sun, indeed, it was SUPER sunny and hot. Basically summer.

We went to visit a little town called Uzes, when there is a little (actually not so little) market on Saturday mornings, and I took some pictures there !

Sandro Insprired DIY Denim Jacket [Easy]



I saw this Sandro Jacket on a blog a few weeks ago, and since, i'm dying to actually make my own with an old denim jacket of mine. 



Okay it's kind of messy but it's easy ! 

You will need : 

-An old denim jacket
-Cissors
-Glue 
-White pearls beads, or these cute half sticky ones I found at Sostene Green. 



And...Follow these 3 steps : 

1. Cut cut cut 





I want my jacket to have a whole new look, so i'm cutting it. it's very trendy at the moment so here we go. You can also cut the collar, like the actual Sandro one! Try and not cut the pocket, if you have to, you'll just have to sew them back.

2. Pick and Print

              




Use the symbol tool on Word and make differents sizes or the stars, or any shape you want. Cut them, and draw the outlines on your jacket. I decided to put on both sleeves and one at the front of the jacket. 

3. Glue ! 



Okay this is the part when it gets messy and tricky, I've used a glue gun, but i'm pretty sure you can also use Super Glue or a textile glue. For the glue gun, I was using a little plastic stick to put the glue on the jacket, and then stick the pearls. That was easier ! You don't need that much glue, try to use the least as possible. It's hard at the beginning, but when you find your way to do it, it's okay ! 


And stick stick stick (for hours..) until you're done ! 


And voilà ! 



I really like how this turned out ! I look like a 2001 Pop singer and i'm loving it.

8 Books To Read If You Like Young Adult Romance

I really love reading. It really is some pure quality time for me. I like to read in the bus, during my lunch break, in my bath, and of course during summer, at the beach (perfect). I definitely have a favorite genre, and as you saw in the title, I’m all about young adult/romance stories. I’ve been reading a lot these past month, and I discovered some gems. I read mostly on my Kindle, so you can find all of these on amazon for yours. Here are my Top 8 Favourite Young Adult/Romance Books:
  
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell


Rainbow Rowell is probably my favorite author. And it’s so hard to choose which one to put first. I’ve read this book twice already. It’s the sweetest love story ever between two people who are so different but find their way together. It talks about bullying, and relationship with parents. You can basically read every Rainbow Rowell’s books as well, she is amazing.

The Choice by Nicholas Sparks.


This is, surprisingly the first Nicholas Sparks books I’ve read. And I loved it. (I love every Nicholas Sparks movie so I wasn’t surprised). A love story between a cutie and a sexy vet. Involves dogs and lake houses, and tears. 10/10. They made a movie about it last year I think, but if you haven’t seen it, read the book before. I’m not going to spoil anything, but it’s worth reading, really! Perfect for summer.

I was here by Gayle Forman


I finished this book so fast, I just wanted to know the end. It’s about suicide, I know, it’s sad. What a suicide of a young girl does to her family, her friends, an entire town. I just really loved how it was written, and I love the characters. It’s very deep, and makes you understand so many things. I loved it. I was surprised to actually enjoy this book, because I couldn’t finished any of Gayle Forman’s books before. I found them hard to read in English (I’m French) so I wasn’t enjoying it. But this one was so trouble.

 Fangirl and Carry On by Rainbow Rowell


Again, Rainbow Rowell, I know. I choose to put these two books together because they are related. This is kind of hard to explain but I will try: Fangirl involves a girl who writes fanfiction about a book series called Simon Snow, and she is starting university. And the book Carry On is the actual Fanfiction of Simon Snow written by Rowell. The story of a young boy in a world of witchcraft, and involves the best love story eve created on earth. I love love love these books so much. First I love the characters of Snow and Baz, and also the characters in Fangirl. It’s just so good. So real. I love you Rainbow Rowell.
   
   Holding up the universe by Jennifer Niven


This is good. So good. I’ve read it so fast as well when I was travelling this February. Talks about bullying as well, obesity, and acceptance, and love, and family, and high school. Sounds like Eleanor and Park, and in a way, it’s similar, but the plot is different and I loved it so much. I really recommend it. The characters are so strong, and unique, with interesting background stories.


    A little something different by Sandy hall


I finished it a few days ago. Very fast to read as well, and so adorable. Very original as well, it’s a love story seen by everyone and everything BUT the two protagonist, like the bus driver point of view, a bench, a barista, a teacher, their friends… very interesting to read. And it’s finally a love story I can relate to. And she mentions Glee in the book and involves lgtb and people of colours So 10/10.

    The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon


This one is also written with different points of views. It talks about immigration, family, and the theory that everything happens for a reason and that everything has consequences on the world. It’s a very beautiful love story, and also about family issues. I think it’s kind of an important book. Worth reading for sure, really makes you think.

   Signs to point yes by Sandy Hall



Sandy again, yep. I haven’t even finished that one yet, I think I have only a few pages left, but I already know that I love it. A shy love story between Jane and Teo, who used to be friends when they were younger, and now Jane is babysitting his sisters during summer. And then some stuff happens as you can guess. Sandy Hall’s love story are the sweetest. I also love that she doesn’t really describe how characters looks. You barely know anything physical about them, and I think that makes her story specials as well. Talks about bisexuality as well, which I’ve never seen in a book before. So yeah, GREAT. 

What is your favorite book? Have you read some of my list?

The Beginner's Guide to a Perfect Skin.



I've been trying to stick to a skin routine for a few month now, and it's working pretty well! 
I'm trying to be more natural in my make-up looks, and it requires a good skin situation. My goal is to be able to love my face without make up, but still taking care of it. Not wearing make up is not a reason not to wash ,clean your face, and hydrate it everyday. 

One of my mains inspo at the moment are Phoebe Tonkin and Lucy Hale. On their instragrams they aren't wearing make up most of the time, and they look flawless. 





Today i'm gonna try to help you to reach that goal, because as fun as make up is, it feels so good to have a natural fresh face when you wake up. 

(PS : I personally don't have strong acne or any specific skin problems, make sure to use product adapted to your skin. )


1. Find a good micellar water. 

This is the base of every skin care routine. This can be used in the morning to take off every last bit of make up, or just to refresh your face before anything else, and also at night to take off your face and eye make up. It can take a few try to find the one you will love and adopt. 



There is very different ranges of prices for these types of product. I found mine in a drugstore for less than 10$. The most famous one is the Bioderma, but some other brands have some good ones as well, like Garnier or even Sephora. 


2. Find a hydrating cream adapted to your skin. 

This is very important to choose carefuly and to know what type of skin you have, and what problem you want to fix. If you have a dry skin, or a greasy one, it's not gonna be the same product. Don't just buy what other peole buy ! Find a cream you can use daily.  


I've talked about it before on my blog, I like to use my Polaar cream I got in a birchbox, but there is plenty in so many different brands and prices. 


3. Find the perfect face mask for your needs. 

And the best place for this is obvioulsy LUSH. Fresh and natural products is the best you can offer to your skin. And it's not that expensive, so that's perfect. 


You can find any type of face masks there, for every needs. I personally need a exfoliating one, to get rid of dead skin and blackheads, so I love to use the Cup o' Coffee mask, I use it once or twice a week, and leave it for like 10 minutes, and it leaves my skin SO SOFT. 



4. The final step : Stick to your routine! 

Make a list, write in on your mirror, on your journal, on your phone, to remind you to do it. If you're a lazy gurl like me, you know the struggle. But it's worth it ! 

Now you can wake up with a fresh face every day (almost) and try to say goodbye to your foundation!
