How I try to stay healthy

Hi everyone, I hope you’re doing well! in today’s post i’m going to tell you how I try to stay healthy. 

So, basically, I went to the doctor, end of the year last year, and she told me I should try to eat more healthy and drink more water (I clearly wasn’t) to keep myself in good shape because my body is quite sensible. This appointment made me realize that I needed to change my bad habits, so, since then, I changed my diet and started exercising 6 days  a week. I feel so much better now.

Before, I wasn’t feeling comfortable in my own body, even if I wasn’t fat at all, I still had feminine shapes that I hated very much. I guess i’ve always been hang-up with my own body, and even though I know that I look fine, I always find a tiny little thing that reminds me that I’m not. Everything’s in the head, it’s only in my head. I remember I started wearing shorts at the beach in 2013 because I didn’t want anyone to see my hips and thighs. (This post wasn’t supposed to be a chatty post, I’m sorry if it is!) Just to say that since I started exercising (in my room, and it really works) I feel my body’s changed. 

I started to eat more vegetables, things I was not really eating before, my food were only starch with cream, all sorts of greasy stuff, you know what I mean. So now, I eat a lot of carrots (I love it), courgette, broccoli and other vegetables. I used to eat a lot in a day, whatever the time, and it really doesn’t help, and it’s quite hard to stop. But I feel like, since I’ve changed my diet and started exercising, I don’t anymore. 

As you can see it on the photos, I eat a lot of fruits too, it’s better than any other industrial biscuits. I can either have a fruit salad or fruits with yogurt and cereals (We’re running out of fruits now aha). I’m loving kiwi at the moment! 😉 They give you the energy you need for the day!

If you follow the SacconeJolys on Youtube you probably know they have a personal trainer named Lucy. Well, she has her own Youtube channel with a lot of 4 minute workouts to do at home (this is her channel if you want to take a look : Lucy Wyndham-Read.) That’s who motivated me, and once you’ve started one workout you never want to stop, it becomes really addictive because you fix yourself goals you want to achieve.  🙂 

I hope you like chatty posts because today was one, and I’m sorry about that!  😛 

Thank you to all of you, and i’ll see you next week for a new blog post. 

Love ❤

Tanya Burr Cosmetics

tanyaburr_logo

This blog post is finally here!!! I had said some time ago that I would do it, and here it is! I wanted to wait to really test the products. I only have here palettes, because that’s what I love the most in makeup, eyeshadows. If you don’t know, and if you girls want to try some of her products, there are reductions on some of her beauty products on Feelunique.com, it’s a good deal! 🙂 

To begin, the packaging is small but handy, and it easily fits in your handbag. It isn’t cumbersome like a Naked palette (which I have troubles to carry) for example. Little hitch, the palettes only opens with a simple magnet on the front, which could be a problem in a handbag. But for this cheap price, They are really affordable products, and good quality. 

Hollywood eye palette:

Fairytale eye palette:

Galaxy eye palette:

I was very surprised because the eyeshadows are quite pigmented, especially the darker colors so to use the last ones, I don’t use any brush, I just apply it with my finger. 

My favorite palette is the galaxy eye palette, I absolutely love the colors, it’s quite festive! I highly recommend this one. 

I didn’t try, but apparently it is possible to use these palettes for brows. But I’ll probably buy a nice brow palette for my eyebrows, tempted to get the urban decay one but it’s quite expensive. (btw, if you have any other recommendations i take it!) 

I really love these palettes, some colors reminds me of the Naked 3, which I love. If you’re looking for cheap eyeshadows, then try Tanya Burr Cosmetics, you won’t be disappointed, and like I already said it, it’s a really good deal. 

I hope you liked my new blog post (sorry boys). And I’ll see you next week with an other post, byyyyyyye! 🙂

Stationery

Hey, what’s up?  I apologize for not posting more often but I have lots of things to do these days and I don’t have much time left for my blog. But I’m doing my best, I miss it and I miss you too. 🙂 I had told you I would write a post about Tanya Burr’s cosmetic products but I need to test them a bit more first.

I really love Stationery, especially little notebooks, some of them are really cool and whenever I go to a shop and see notebooks I want to get all of them, even if I don’t really need one aha but I always found an idea to use it.

I watched Zoella’s stationery video a few time ago and I really liked it so I thought I should do something similar, mostly around notebooks, on my blog. I wasn’t very interested in stationery before, it was as ordinary as a copybook for me (which isn’t). I bought all my notebooks in a shop called Hema, I know they’re some in the UK (good thing to know if I plan on going there).

Vocabulary and blog posts:

I first had this idea to buy a little one for english vocabulary (If you don’t know, I’m studying English at University), I think it’s pleasant to see vocabulary other than in a book, isn’t it? On the same day I also purchased one for my blog posts (as you can see on the picture I added little sticky letters) which I rarely use to be honest, because I always forget it is somewhere on my desk with the others, but I finally use it for the second time. I still think I should only write the main ideas inside and then develop here.

University:

Next notebook, I really like this one, looks like an organizer. As I don’t have many courses this semester I have enough space inside to write my only two courses. It only cost me 4€. It has dividers and enough pages in each one of them.

My twisted dreams:

This last one is a leather imitation in dark blue. I spotted this one in the same shop (my all time favorite shop right now, I am obsessed with it, it’s so cheap) last week and I couldn’t resist. So, I have these dreams almost every night and I wonder how I manage to dream about things like that, because sometimes it can be so weird that when I wake up the next morning I laugh. I decided to keep my little dreams/bad dreams inside a notebook because I could seriously form a story one day, a little bit like Alice in Wonderland if you know what I mean.

That’s it for today’s post, I hope you enjoyed it. I want to thank you for 81 subscribers, I really appreciate that.

Love ❤

Old embarrassing photos

Hello blogging community, how are you all? so today I want to share some of my personal pictures but they’re not only personal, they’re also pretty embarrassing aha and you’ll see that I changed a lot physically! Make sure to have your eyes wide open! 😉

This first photo isn’t embarrassing at all as you can see, I just want to start with a photo of me as a child, a normal one aha.

Photos personneles

I can’t tell you exactly how hold I was but maybe I was between 3 or 4 years old. To be honest with you, I think I look cute and look at my hair, they looked so cool at that time!

Teenage years has totally changed me, spots appeared on my face, and it was the moment I had no fashion style, clearly, I didn’t know how to dress up.

You might not recognise me on this one but this is me, back in 2009. Hard to believe it huh?  Seriously, look at this jacket! what on hearth is that? I’m not even talking about the scarf. I disappoint myself because I used to love this jacket! ^^’ But at least I have matchy shoelaces and T-shirt.

Photo personnelle

This one compared to the others isn’t too old. It was taken by my grandfather 4 years ago, at the time I thought I was a model (i’m joking). 😀

Throwback to the time I was in a band. We had our own T-shirt with our names in the back, it was good time! 😛

Photo personnelles 2

Aha I remember this one very well, a friend and I were baking and I had had this brilliant idea to cover my face with chocolate.

Look at young grumpy me in London! 😀 How can I look grumpy in London? Young me was odd.

I saved the best for last TADAAAAAAAA

My eyebrows were totally on point aha ^^

I have a lot more pictures, but I am saving them, maybe you’ll want a part two?  I had so much fun doing this, I don’t care about posting old embarrassing photos of myself, I want you to know how I looked when I was younger aha. 🙂

Love from actual me,

A stressful birthday party

Well well well I have to tell you something, last weekend was the most stressful 2 days I’ve ever had. I was invited to one of my friends 20th birthday party and a friend of hers who recently turned 19 years old, on Saturday night, I had not seen my friend in a while, I was so happy to see her again. I met her in high school before the end of our final year, we became rapidly very close and that’s how our relationship started. 

On Friday night she invited me to her mom’s place to spend some time together before their birthday party (because I knew I wouldn’t have been able to see her much on Saturday), and we had a whale of a time. The night started by going to the function room, it was a pre-birthday party (there were only twelve people so nothing to worry about for me). We enjoyed ourselves on the dance floor, me first. It was 1 am when we came back to her place, we immediately went to sleep, we had a lot of things to prepare in the morning. I’m going to skip the cooking part and talk about the moment I arrived to the function room. It was still quite early, the guests arrived 2 hours after us and to be honest, I spent the all time alone, everyone was talking together and I was alone in a corner of the room I was looking for some things to do to kill the time. There were around forty young people and I only knew six or seven of them which is little. 

I really thought for once I was going to talk to people (I did talked to my friends), but I didn’t even try, it was too hard for me, I felt powerless and my fear took over me. At dinner time, I was feeling so sad that I almost cried I thought I was going to leave the place, but hopefully I didn’t. I pretty much spent the night sitting on a chair.

I was supposed to stay for the night but I asked a friend if she could drive me back home which she nicely did. I also had to explain it to my friend, and she understood, she actually saw how lonely I was feeling. 

I hate being introverted, it literally prevents me for doing EVERYTHING, I would love to be different, but I don’t think I can change that. The worst thing in that, some people don’t take me seriously, they say it is just a phase, that it will change and it pisses me off (excuse  my bad language).

That’s all  have to say. Next post will certainly be a Tanya Burr make-up look on her palettes (I bought the 3 palettes last week aha).

The Miranda Sings Award

Miranda Sings

Wait, what? I have been nominated for an award? apparently yes! oh okay! 🙂 First of all, I have to say that this award is the most hilarious one I’ve ever seen since I first started blogging. Come on, a Miranda Sings award! aha.

I have been nominated by the lovely wordsfromateenagegirl (so thank you) to accomplish this hard task. It’s an award which was created by Claudia’s thoughts, it’s about complimenting and feeling good about yourself (this award was made for me, aha joke) and here are the rules:

– Announce your win with a post and link the blogger who nominated you.
– Include the featured image on your blog post.
– Nominate 10 bloggers (or as many as you can think of) and link your awardees in the post.
– List 7 things you love about yourself (This can be about your appearance, your personality, your achievements, etc.)
– Don’t use negative connotation. (I.e. Don’t say things like – I’m prettier than an average person or People have told me I’m smart. You ARE pretty. You ARE smart.)

Oh man, this is going to be really hard *depressed emoji*

1)Can I say I’m funny? because I don’t know if everyone agree with that, some people could think I’m just annoying! :’D I make people laugh, so I guess I can be funny sometimes.

2)It can be considered as an achievement so it works. I don’t think you know but I redoubled my first year of english license but I’m very happy to say that I finally validated my first term (I have one more to validate to pass in year 2) I’m proud of myself, I was so stressed about failing again, but I worked harder this time.

3)My determination to workout. I recently started Lucy Wyndham-Read’s exercises. You may know her for her little appearances in Anna Saccone Joly’s videos, she’s her personal fitness coach. It’s very severe but when you wake up the next day your all body aches. I really want to get fitter and be more muscular and also more comfortable in my own body because that’s the main reason.

4)I like my hair color, brown with blond locks, it isn’t natural, I had them dyed a few months ago.

5)(4 done, 3 more to go) When I was in primary school all kids used to name the color of their eyes, I don’t know if you did that as well  but brown eyes were “pig eyes”, green eyes were “viper eyes” etc… so I have pig eyes aha but I like them because they have a hazel color when I expose to the sun.

6)Me singing in front of a hundred people, 4 years ago. I kicked stress in the balls that day.

7)I got over a very difficult time when I was in high school, and maybe I’ll right a post about it someday but I’m not too sure right now. But I got over it and I’m very happy about myself.

I literally spent ages to find things I love about myself aha but I did it whoop whoop! It’s time for you to do the same now, I nominate:
