When I realised I had travelled more in the UK than in my own country, I decided to take action and hold some time to explore France more. Although Paris is obviously a classic there is so much more to visit - after Strasbourg and Toulouse, it was time for me to spend a few days in Rennes, capital of Brittany. Did I expect the clichés of stripes and crepes? Not really, but I got plenty of them as the number of striped jersey per square metre exploded (for my greatest pleasure).

I remember wondering countless times what my skin type was. I just couldn't categorize mine as dry, sensitive, oily or combination and struggled to adapt my beauty routine - not mentioning it tends to be drier in winter and oilier in summer like a majority of people - until I realised it was both sensitive and prone to blemishes. It was also dehydrated (water stripped from skin by products and environmental factors), not dry (skin that produces very little oil naturally). I don't know exactly what causes my skin sensitivity; it must be a mix of pollution, hard water and maybe a misuse of too harsh a product on my skin. On the contrary I know my blemishes are directly due to stress and diet. In any case I now focus on using the right products and head for higher quality, natural and organic ones when possible to reach the perfect skincare fit!

You may wonder why I am outlining a review of Miss Dior now since the original perfume was created in 1947. Maybe because I would like to expand upon the perfume I've been wearing for so long in my young 24 year-old life, to the extent that it has become by far my favourite of the tiny collection I own (composed of my summery cologne by Jo Malone and Coco Mademoiselle when in need of extra confidence). More importantly, it recently struck me how modern the scent and its spirit is.

A few days ago I had the chance to fly away from my routine to Toulouse to visit some family I had not seen in a while. I don't often have the occasion to pop by south France so I made the most of my trip, balancing between quality time with loved ones and visit of the city (and optionally coffee con panna).
