Hi guys! I've had a pretty busy day today. Left home at 8 for a 9 o'clock class and finished school at 15:30. Then I headed straight to work and worked until eight this evening. After that I strolled down the whole Champs Élysées, giving bread and croissants to homeless people before I went into GAP and bought some gifts. That's also where I took the first photo, in their kids department. I wanted to show you my new coat that I love love love. It's from Banana Republic so quite fancy, the perfect light pink colour and 80 % whool so pretty warm even though it's light. I just couldn't resist it. In the pic you also see a bit of my new skirt that I bought the other week in Mango. It's short and black in leather imitation and I think it's so cool! I walked all the way to the metro Madeleine and had a chat with my mom before I took the metro home and had dinner. I made mashed potatoes and carrots, lentil "beefs", marinated mushrooms with onion and haricots verts. Sooo delicious! My cooking skills are really stepping up I must say. Now I'm dead in bed, watching gossip girl and dreaming of New York. Tomorrow I think I'll go swimming and then I definitely have to get my shit together and go do my laundry finally. Can't remember the last time I did it lol. Also have a package to pick up, accidentally did some online shopping the other evening oops... Also I have one class in economics in the afternoon and then I have to pack cause on Thursday I'm going home. So excited for the weekend! Sweet dreams everyone!
Hi guys! After starting the second semester in school today I came home and had an early dinner. Brussel sprouts, falafel and haricot verts with a sauce made of creme fraiche and some sweet and sour sauce. Not so bad actually. Since I'm going home for the weekend I'm trying to empty my fridge. This evening I went for a 5k run by the Seine, under some bridges, over to Île Saint Louis and then to Île de la Cité and back to Bastille. Such a nice run and a beautiful evening even though it was raining a bit. Warm in the air, though. Now I'm back home, watching gossip girl and think I have to eat something again haha. Tomorrow I have school and then I'll see my dear Macha. Bisous!
There's no secret that I love to travel... like most people actually, when you think about it. Right now I'm reallly in the mood to book a trip over a weekend, but I just can't figure out where/with who. Anyway, here are some of the best trips I've done throughout the years!
New York 2012
When I turned 16 my dad gave me a trip to New York, the city of my dreams back then. It is by far one of the best trips ever, if not the best one. I LOVE New York more than anyone and can't wait to go back there one day, or preferably live. We were true tourists for a couple of days and just enjoyed the best of the big apple. Can't believe it's been 5 years already.
The last year of school I went to Paris with my French group from school and our awesome teacher Sara. It was then and there that I fell in love with the city that I today call home. It was truly a great trip, except those baby pink pants... And I thought I was so trendy haha...
The summer after I had graduated from school I went on my first "bigger" adventure on my own, to Brighton, England on a 3 weeks language course. It was an experience that changed me and opened my eyes to traveling and the world. Good memories!
Paris, again. This time with the French group from my high school. So so so much fun.
Went on a cruise on my dads cruise ship with my sister summer 2013 for two weeks I think it was, in the Baltic Sea. We started in Southampton, England and continued to Copenhagen, Stockholm, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Latvia, Lithuania and Bornholm. Great two weeks with my sister and dad and had a crush on the cutest Norwegian guy. Good times.
In the second year of high school I escaped the cold for a year under the mexican sun as an exchange student with Rotary. Still the best decision of my life. One year filled with new experiences, a mexican boyfriend, confusions in the Spanish language and some of the best friends I've ever had. I wouldn't change it for all the money in the world and I can't wait to go back to my second home that will always hold a special place in my heart. This photo was taken at Chichen Itzá during the Ruta Maya that we did during two weeks with exchange students from all over the world.
After coming home from Mexico I went to France, to Lyon to visit Grégoire aka the love of my life during fall break. It was my first time in France in another city than Paris and we had a great time together. Now I've been in Lyon three times altogether and can't wait to go there again in February.
Summer 2015 it was time for my first (and probably only lol) Natwest Island Games, on the island Jersey which is a part of England. I went with my volleyball team and had a great week and we came in fourth (almost almost third). Such a fun experience with the best team!
Since my friends graduated high school in spring 2015 we headed to Spain that summer for a week of party and enjoying the good life. We stayed at the most amazing hotel and had a such a good week in the sun. Everyone should experience Magaluf once in their life when they are young, though I think one time is enough...
Went to London in the fall of 2015 for my sister's 18th birthday. It was my gift for her and I think she liked it. We had a great couple of days with some qualite sister time, shopping and sightseeing. Just like it should be when going to London.
The day after I had done my last exam in high school I went to Paris to visit my dear Emma who was there as an aupair. Also met my future aupair family. We had some nice days in the sun and visited most parts of Paris as well as having a crazy night out that started with some tinder guys and a view of the Eiffel tower and ended with a house party where we only knew each other. Fun night, though.
Last year I turned 20 which I celebrated with Emma in Milan, Italy. It was our first time in Italy and we couldn't have had a better experience. From the cute Airbnb couple that hosted us, to the fancy club to the Italian model...
And now to my latest trip: in November last year I went to Sevilla to visit my friend Rachel who was living there. Enjoyed a weekend filled with party, Thanksgiving celebrations with Americans and strolling around the old beautiful city.
