Today's

Today's mood: Good!! I slept very well, as I've done lately since I've tried to improve my sleeping habits. It does so much for the everyday mood. 

Today's must-do: Pay the rent for February which I just did! I have also done some other paper work etc which feels good when it's done. I really don't like to do those things (such as bank papers, insurance, fill in forms etc) but the feeling afterwards is great, especially if you've been putting it up for a while hehe..

Today's hair: Today's hair is actually better than it usually is. I showered and blow-dried it this morning so now it's nice and fresh. 

Today's makeup: As always on normal days: nothing. I have seen a HUGE difference in my skin since I became a vegan and I couldn't be happier about it. I've always had some skin problems, not extreme ones but still. Now I can go without any makeup and still feel as if my face skin looks okay. Even though it is shallow it gives me a good feeling about myself and I automatically feel way more comfortable without makeup. 

Today's outfit: I'm wearing a new pair of jeans that I got from Jenny! Explanation mark because I honestly cannot understand how it's possible that we can wear the same jeans. They must have been too big for her. Anyways, they are light blue and a little bit shorter, I think the model is called "mom jeans". I match them with a black turtleneck and my black everyday boots. Tonight I think I'll change to the new ones with glitter heel though. 

Today's plans: I have six hours of psychosociology in school today. Tonight I'll see Asta in a café/bar in Le Marais, excited to see her!!

 

What do you think of this bag? I'm thinking about ordering it.

Today's wanted: A new bag for school. It has to be quite big so it fits my computer etc. I've been changing between a beige one that I bought two years ago in a random store, and a light pink one from Calvin Klein these past two years so I feel like it's time for something new. I'm boring but I think I want a black one.

Shannon's photo from summer 2016 when she came to visit. I honestly LOVE Åland in summertime, no place I'd rather be. 

Today's thought: I have to do my internship for four months. This might not sound like a problem, and it isn't really, but I would have loved to be able to go home to Åland for July and August. Now, instead, I have my internship from the beginning of April until the end of July since they don't take interns for less than four months. I'm still excited about the internship and so glad that I got one that I reallt wanted BUT July at home is so great. Oh well, I hope (and I'm sure) it will be worth it, though. I will go home in the end of July and be there the whole month of August and the half month of September, until we go back to school. I'm thinking about going home for Easter before the internship starts, we will see.

Today's most boring: That the teacher came one hour late for class. This happens almost on a regular basis in my school at the moment.. Yes the organisation isn't the best here haha.. Oh well, I didn't really mind since I had time to do other things while waiting. 

With Grégoire and Daniel in Mexico 2014. Can't believe it's been four years since this photo was taken?! Like WHAT? This photo was taken during one of our big trips the "Ruta Colonial" in the state of Oaxaca. 
 
Today's longing: I can't wait to see Daniel again! He's coming to visit in the middle of February and it's been more than two years since we saw each other. I just have to plan our weekend so I can show him the best parts of Paris. That's the good thing when having lived here for more than two (!!) years, now I know the tourist traps, what's worth to visit and what's not (stand in the line to the Eiffel tower, no thanks). 

Since last time

Hey my loves! Let's have a look at what I've been up to since the last time I wrote here.
 
 
On Thursday I went to Café Saint Regis on Ile Saint Louis, on of the two islands situated in the river Seine. Had tea with Jenny and caught up.
 
 
On Friday I got up early to go and work in the hotel. It is situated rightnext to the beautiful Place Vendôme. Here's a pic of my work outfit, as well. After work I went to teach English one hour and in the evening I had sushi with Lilli and Macha. So good to be together. Also stopped by Jeremy's birthday celebration before I headed home after a long day. 
 
 
I worked Saturday and Sunday as well, here's two pics of what the staff food can look like. Wow!! The best part is that they give us all the leftovers from the fancy breakfast and brunch, such as fresh fruits and pastries etc. Yumm. 
 
 
Saturday evening I went to Bianco's on Rue Montorgueil to have dinner with Lilli, Macha, Ellie and Chloe. Hadn't seen Ellie in too long so that was really nice. I had a vegetarian pizza without cheese -> vegan. That's a good idea if you're in a restaurant as a vegan and there's nothing to eat: just ask them to remove the cheese from a vegetarian pizza! We also enjoyed some delicious cocktails, I had a strawberry/raspberry mojito, so good! 
Sunday evening after work I went to the cinema with Klara to see The Greatest Showman. I would definitely recommend it if you like musicals (and Zac Efron hehe). Afterwards we went for a little walk by the Seine and looked at the raised water level. Almost scary! 
 
That was my weekend, lots of work but I'm glad I could enjoy some time with friends as well. Hope you had a good one too. Now I'm going to choir practice, talk to you guys later!

Hi there! Look what I found today on sale. I am a true sucker for sales as you might know, sooo I just couldn't resist it when I found this cute blouse and the fancy boots. I am not a big fan of buying shoes, it might have something to do with my big feet or the fact that it is just so difficult? Anyone that agrees? Anyways, these ones were comfortable and still "basic" enough to wear everyday. I think. I like the silver heel, hehe. The blouse is just the perfect everyday blouse that works in the daytime as well as in the evening. And the best part? I got them both for 24 euros instead of 75! Did anyone say bargain? YES I believe so. 
 
Now I'm off to see Jenny, was over a week ago so will be good to catch up. Tomorrow I'm working eeearly in the hotel so better get to sleep at a reasonable hour tonight. Have a good evening everyone!
