Beauty Routine for Sensitive & Blemished Skin

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!

Daring & Elegance ∙ Miss Dior Eau de Parfum Review

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.

Take Me to la Ville Rose ∙ Toulouse

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).

Trends I Shopped in the Sales

This past year the fashion industry has been all about reinventing the 90s - it's even more striking when you find yourself liking what a character wears in a film of the same time period (who knew Monica rocked her outfits so well?). As a result winter sales are full of the up-to-date version. And as usual, I try to shop what can last at long one or two additional years in terms of trends or timeless pieces to make my wardrobe more sustainable.

What's in my Makeup Bag ∙ February Edition

I actually don't own a big collection of makeup items compared to others as I pay attention to beauty expiry dates (and don't have unlimited space on my shelves), although I'd be lying if I said everything fitted in my small makeup bag. In reality I tend to use a small range of products to create different looks, regardless of whether I go for a no makeup makeup or a more sophisticated one in the morning. Whilst I realised I prefer classic makeup looks that are easy and efficient to creative ones - which as a result reduces the amount of makeup I need on a daily basis - the content of my makeup bag slightly varies every month. Below is the February edition!
