I am the “Bye Girl” !

I promised you guys an Advent Calendar type of month, posting a blog update every single day until Christmas… I got so excited by the idea but I completely lost track of it, and today is my 10th post of the 24th I said I would do;

I still want to get them all done, I’m just going to publish a bunch to fill out those other days I missed out. It’s going to be a lot of work, and I know some of you are going to think there’s no bother in doing that because I understand that you’re glad I came back blogging at all, but it’s important to me as I challenged myself & I wanna succeed in that matter.

Plus it’s highly motivating, as the new year’s coming I wanna change my bad habits and adopt new ones, so I can become a more hard-working person, someone who goes after her dreams and completes them.

I was watching the new season of Fuller House on Netflix the other day (…yes, I’m desperately addicted to Netflix) and in one of the episodes DJ was referred to as the “bye girl”, the kind of girl that forgets all about her friends and other commitments once she gets into a relationship : I realized that was me !

I started a job at Apple last February, it’s my first job & I really wanted to imply myself fully in it. Then I met my boyfriend with whom I fell so in love that I wanted to spend all my free time with, leaving out my personal projects unaccomplished.

It was him who started motivating me to take back my projects, and come back to this, between other things. I feel very blessed to have someone like him in my life, I want to respect my path and I won’t let go this time around, even if it takes me a couple tries before I get there. I will not be the “bye girl” – I got my wake up call.

It’s time to go !

We’re going back home !

It really is overdue to go back to my beloved city of angels. My sister is coming along this time around, we’ve planned a whole month away to California – it’ll be from March to April.

We’ll be arriving just in time for WonderCon, my favorite convention down in Anaheim. We’ll also go to Disneyland while we’re there that weekend. We’ve decided for San Diego & Las Vegas to be part of our trip, but we’ll probably add other cities because we want to explore.


We won’t be staying in L.A. the entire time, we’re bound to it but we need adventures ! I got this crazy idea to film our vacation and make it into a “reality TV” type of web-series, lightly scripted, totally off the rails… I’ll be posting that on here and my YouTube channel.

It’s going to be a lot of fun. We’ll be based in South Bay for the amazing beaches and because when I first moved to Los Angeles that was my home, and I miss it so much, I want to relive those awesome feelings with my sister. We’re going full California girls style ! I literally want to do the most LA-esque things there are.


I cannot wait to see my best friend Noah, who’s stayed to live there. We’re basically the same person, it’s wild. I’ll always love this place dearly and that’s why I’m attracted to going back there all the time. After these many years, I still have the same dreams… without the illusions.

But I don’t want to feel like giving up because the world is too realistic. So I’m trying again, what do I have to lose from this, everything is gain. I think we all need that bit of magic in our lives to survive it, that’s why this is important to me, that’s why we’re leaving to enjoy every single second of this nostalgic trip.

“For people who are supposed to love unconditionally, families seem to have a lot of conditions. One day I want to make a family with no conditions. Maybe that’s all I really want.”

Winter Bucket List

I got this marvelous idea from a Pinterest board, and it really inspired me to do my own bucket list of things for this winter season ! It’s time to enjoy and have fun in this wonderful cold weather, while it lasts…

 • Make some homemade hot chocolate for sure, but the really “gourmet” one with marshmallow and sprinkles and whip cream 🙂 
 • Either bake some yummy cakes and cookies, or get them from an amazing bakery because we gotta pleasure our tummies !
 • Go see a ballet like the Nutcracker, or at least the movie that’s come out in the theater.
 • Go ice-skating of course, that’s a must.
 • Make a scrapbook of all my winter pictures with family & friends, it’s fun and it’ll help to organize them.
 • Oh and I have to do a family christmas photoshoot to add to our scrapbook for this year.
 • Watch some Christmas movies over on Netflix, and enjoy.
 • Organize a winter-themed karaoke.
 • Throw a game-night at home, because I know I’ll win them all.

 • Travel to someplace where it snows to do the rest of my bucket list, which involves…
                • Building a snowman
                • Catch snowflakes on my tongue !
                • Have a snowy city walk
                • Have a snowball fight, duh
                • Visit a Christmas Market 😀 

Holiday Gift Guide

… and more gift ideas !

This Holiday season I have to pick up gifts for my family as usual, my friends of course, and something I never had to care about before, it’s someone new who has taken a huge part of my time this year, because I’ve met the love of my life ! The actual man of my dreams. I feel so blessed and happy, and I really need to nail this Christmas for all of them.

Clyde, Rohmer wool-felt beret – 95 US Dollars | Isabel Marant, Lecce leather belt – 120 US Dollars | Strangeloves NYC, Perfume oil necklace – meltmyheart – 260 US Dollars

THE BEST FRIEND.
My best friend loves fashion and cute fancy boxes, atypical little things that she can keep around so I always try to get her the funniest and most original stuff.

Mason Pearson, Dressing Comb – 33 Euros | Men’s Society, Whisky Lover’s kit – 58 Euros | Slip, Embroidered silk eye mask – 50 US Dollars

THE BOYFRIEND.
My man is quite manly, but he also likes taking care of himself so I’m definitely gonna get him some beauty products for his beard and since he loves whisky and elegant materials, I’m gonna look for that.

Elizabeth Arden, coffret Eigh Hour – 44 Euros | Balmain Paris hair couture – 65 US Dollars | UGG turn cuff gloves – 140 Euros

MY FAMILY.
They’re just like me when it comes to cosmetics and makeup, so I know I can easily make them happy with some awesome kits that have various things in them. Nice wintery clothing is always a good idea, and you gotta find that one thing that defines the person to make them special and different from the other members of the family –  to show them that you know them !

ME, MYSELF & I.
Of course you have to think of yourself… Christmas is important because it also means that you need rewarding for your hard work, and your tenacity towards life and you gotta just empower yourself with something meaningful to you… or just splurge to your fantasy, because that’s also the magic of it all.

The Advent Calendar

Here’s to a new me !

I really love Christmas, after Halloween it’s definitely my favorite time of the year. I get all excited about the lights, the food and gifts ! People seem more merry, we sing those old timey songs that we love, we enjoy our family and friends, and take the time to ourselves as well… it’s really just a month that’s dedicated to celebrating life and all the good it brings us. So, I’m super happy to say hello to December !

In that spirit I’ve decided to come back to The Blog and bring the tradition of the Advent Calendar on here; my idea is to give you guys a new blog post every single day, until Christmas… it’s pretty much like Vlogmas that we have going on YouTube, except it’s blog-focused. The good thing about this is I can put all my joy and enthusiasm for this month, by making posts related to what I love doing, to how it makes me feel, and simply share all together that awesomeness.

I’m ready to hit it off and be blogging again, because I’ve missed this so much and it’s a huge part of me that I should never forget or give up about.

Love you ! xoxox

When i love i become liquid light

To fall in love but not know how to love is a total dichotomy. Yet, here you could be contemplating losing the person you hold dearest because your mind doesn’t hold the answers to their needs. Your actions, whatever they may be, could never be enough and this love that transforms you doesn’t do a thing to them. Can you imagine how painful and beautiful that can be.

Love is nothing but a poisoned gift. Don’t they say that the greatest loves are all tragedies… if you cannot explain it, but feel it tearing you apart, isn’t that the greatest of love ? How else would you describe these feelings that are destroying you more than anything you thought you could bear. Love is testing your survival, until you’re done and cannot take it any longer.

From the Spanish word Amor, it becomes the French to Death – “mort”. So in the same word you can find your own felicity and assassination. Because love is all that, it’s murder and suicide. No matter how many tears roll down your cheeks, that sparkling liquid is nothing but your own weakness and powerlessness towards what has to inevitably happen : which is your end.
