an hour in Paris

La ville de l'amour! Paris is not only one of the most loved cities in the world because of its Eiffel Tower, but also because of its beautiful architecture, history and the sort of charm that lies in the air. On our way to Quiberon ( there still will be a Post about it online in no time, I promise! ), we had the opportunity to make a little stop in the city of love which I used to shoot some pictures that I'd like to share with you guys in this post.

I think you can separate the photos into three categories : streets, balconies and house corners. Yepp, very exciting, I know. But I simply couldn't pass by all of the beautiful architecture without taking some snapshots to share, so please be tolerant.

What is your favorite spot / the place you always wanted to visit in Paris?


August Favorites

I think that I can objectively say that I have way more makeup than I could possibly use up in my entire life. Yet I am guilty of always using the same products over and over again, which is the main reason I don't want to bore you with monthly makeup favorites as you'd always see the same items each and every month. So I thought I'd show you only a few random bits and bobs that I loved during the month of August and that aren't necessarily only makeup items. Let's break it down!

These last couple of months, the Internet was hyping up everything skincare-related that had clay in it, so when I saw that L'Oréal has brought out a whole skincare line using natural clays, I obviously had to give it a go. And I wasn't disappointed! The Pure Clay Detox Wash really helped me with my breakouts this past month, which I am very grateful for. There will also come a whole Post online where I'll go into more details about my updated skincare routine, so I prefer not to ramble on for too long about this one already, but I still had to include it in my favorites. If you're having problematic skin right now ( breakouts, clogged pores, ... ), I personally can only recommend this one.

As I was travelling quite a lot this month and it was ( more or less ) good weather, I was searching a good deodorant that would help me especially throughout the hotter months of the year. I usually don't go for roller deodorant and I also have to admit that I never have used a Sanex deodorant before aswell, so this was more good luck than knowledge, but I decided to try it out and was really impressed. I use it once a day right after taking a shower and let it sink in before I put on cloths. Throughout the day I still prefer to go in with a spray deodorant, but I find this one to prevent me from having to use another deodorant as often as I used to. It doesn't have any particular fragrance to it as it's their classic Dermo Protector Deodorant which I personally prefer.

Next on our list is a longtime favorite of mine that I use and reuse especially during summer all the time. Of course I'm talking about the much-hyped Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray that is known for giving you that effortless, textured beachy waves that are so wanted during summertime. I am a very lazy person when it comes to my hair ( even though I have to say that I'm really trying to do more efforts ). Most of the time, I'll simply spray a little seasalt spray on after the shower and let my hair airdry ; that's about it. 

I mostly chose my Hugo Boss sunglasses this month for their effortless, simple design which allowed me to wear them with practically every single outfit.

I know that I'm quite late on this one, but I still am totally obsessed over brown-ish lipsticks. My favorite at the moment is the Maybelline ColorSensation Lipstick ( 630 Velvet Beige ). I find it to be the perfect darker nude shade and lipstick texture. Of course I have to reapply it during the day, as it isn't that longlasting ( due to its shiny formula ), but that doesn't bother me too much. It's really easy to apply quickly on the go and to throw on with any eye makeup look. My second lip favorite was the MAC Lipglass ( Lust ). Basically I love it for the same reasons as the lipsticks and it stays on even better than the lipstick. 

Last but not least, I've read Love x Style x Life by Garance Doré this month. And I know that I'm really late to that party but hey, better now than never. I like the humour of the book, the little anecdotes aswell as her advices. All in all, I would definitely say that it's a must-read for everybody who's interested in Fashion, Styling and Blogging.
