Christmas Wishlist

Hey everyone !

I hope everybody's ready for Christmas ! It's just around the corner ! 

Life has been pretty busy around here ... Guillaume and I started to move out a lot of our stuff from our appartment last Saturday and I am delighted to be home, with my family and my baby brother who came back from Canada two weeks ago ! And since Christmas is here, I guess it's time to give you a look at my wishlist :)

My dream would be to have a new phone, but since I have already changed my laptop for my birthday, I wanted to ask something else than money. I think receiving money for Christmas is sad as you have no surprise ... Deep inside, I am still a kid and I really hold on to the Christmas traditions and spirit ! And ok, I admit: I love writing my list to Santa ;)

My mum told me I will have a few surprises, but basically, this is what I have asked for ... And some other stuff that could not fit on the picture:

Eyeshadows Set Naked 3 by Urban Decay // Pretty Parfait make-up set from Benefits // Handbag  from Etam // Home Perfum from Nature et Découvertes // Workout Accessories from Decathlon // Crockery from Maison du Monde // Slippers from Etam

It is now time to go get ready, finish wrapping the last presents and watch Love Actually ! 

Have a Merry Christmas :)

December Goals

Our Christmas Tree

Hey'all !

The month of the "last times" is finally coming ! Last week was the last one to write my thesis. This is also my last week of college and probably one of the last weeks in our apartment. What makes me really happy is that it will be the last Christmas holidays I will spend studying for the exams. And it might be my last exams ever ! I am ready to finish my student life and start jump in the professional world. There will be a lot of changes in 2015 !

November Goals:
  • Be more thankful and let people know it 
  • Start writing review cards for the exams x
  • Start buying some Christmas presents 
  • Celebrate Thanksgiving 
  • Find a new place for January x
  • Save money !!! x
As I wrote it in my last article, I have been pretty ill a few weeks ago. I have also been busy studying for all the essays I had to give back this week. Well, I can say that as usual, studies took over everything else in my life ... But I am glad to say I found some time to enjoy the holiday season ! I have spent a lot of time with my friends, roaming around the Christmas market in our city.

December Goals:
  • Finish all the Christmas present on time
  • Meet Lucie while she is in France
  • Clean my bedroom at my parents
  • Read by the fireplace
  • Go to the Christmas mass
  • Find a good balance between my family and my reviews
  • Find an apartment for January/February
  • Watch 5 Christmas movies

Well, I LOVE this season ! Since I finished writing my thesis for this semester, I am fully enjoying this period of the year. I just like watching movies with Guillaume while drinking a cup of tea or just listening to Christmas carols ... My brother came home from Canada last night, and I am super excited about spending the holidays with my family ! One more week left !

What are your plans for the last month of 2014 ?

Life Lately #4

Favorite holiday candle

Heya !

In France, we used to say that no news is good news !

It is actually the final line for me, before finishing my masters. We are nearly at the end of November, which means that the exams and all the other deadlines are just around the corner ! Saying that I am cool and relaxed would be a complete lie ! I am actually feeling more and more anxious everyday. I know this pressure will only be there for a little while, so I am trying to do my best to get through it.t

I feel really sorry for not being on he blog as often as I would like to. I actually had tones of ideas ! Fall season inspires me a lot, especially between Halloween and Christmas. But unfortunately, I am (as usual) running out of time ... I have been quite sick in the past three weeks, so I am putting my health and my studies first. I keep hoping that some day, I will be able to fully focus on my writing and on the blog !

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow American readers ! :)

November Goals


Hey y'all ! Happy November !

Fall is definitely settling down, here in France ! After the Indian summer we had since September, Mother Nature seems to be reclaiming her rights. It is getting colder and we had pouring rain this week. I am surprised we did not have more floods ... Also, I am realizing that the year will end in only two months and I can't believe it ! Two months left in college, two months left in our flat ... Because yes ... We are moving !

October Goals:
  • Celebrate our fourth anniversary 
  • Prepare a secret date for Guillaume x
  • Find an internship 
  • Be more serious about my studies 
  • Loose weight x
  • Start saving money x
  • Go to the hairdresser 
  • Decorate our home for the new season 
October was good ! The first good news was that I found my internship :)  That's a good thing done ! No need to worry about this anymore. Now we just have to find a new place to live, as we are moving to another city. It will probably be one of my next goals ! And the second big thing about last month was our fourth anniversary. We had a lovely day ! We bought a bottle of fizzy raspberry wine for the occasion, and tried a super restaurant. We were willing to go there for months but we could not afford it. Our anniversary was the perfect excuse to go there, and it was probably one of the best restaurant I have tried in the last couple of months ! Also, I am glad to announce that I am getting back to studies ! I am trying to focus on the two little months I have left ! 

November Goals:
  • Be more thankful and let people know it
  • Start writing review cards for the exams
  • Start buying some Christmas presents
  • Celebrate Thanksgiving
  • Find a new place for January
  • Save money !!!
It's November, so I am starting to prepare the Christmas season. As you may know, we do not celebrate Thanksgiving in France, although I am trying to introduce this new tradition in our home. I know it's typically American, but I think it is great to think about what we have and be grateful for it. Especially with the Christmas madness coming ! Life is running so fast, I like the idea of sitting back and just being content of our lives. 

How do you feel about the holiday season ? What are your plans for November ?

When life gets hard, when things change, true love remains the same.

Last Wednesday, Guillaume and I celebrated our fourth anniversary together. I cannot believe that we started to date four years ago ... It seems like it was yesterday when we first met, but I also feel as if Guillaume had always been a part of my life. And yet, we are not the same persons has when we first kissed. We have grown together and I cannot imagine my life without him.

He is my everything. He is my rock, my light, my sun.
He is always guiding me or encouraging me. 

He believes in me, even when I don't even believe in myself. 

He gave me more than anybody ever gave me. He gave me love, trust and confidence.
He made me feel worth it, valuable.

He finishes the sentences I start. I laugh before he finishes his jokes.
And just the sound of his laugh makes me giggle.

He loves me the way I am, for who I am.

He knows when I am upset, anxious or sad, just by looking into my eyes. He reads me like a open book.

He is the bravest of us, he is not afraid to bare his feelings and to let me in.
He is not afraid to make the first move when we fight or to admit he is wrong.

He is my true love, my lover, my partner, my best friend. He is my missing piece, my soul mate. 

Of course, it is not always easy. Of course, we always fight over silly things. But at the end of the day, he is always there for me. And when life became complicated or challenging, he never failed me. He never gave up on us. He patiently waited until life get us back together. And I know he is the one for me, because no matter what happens, we always overcome life's ordeals. We are more then a couple, we are a team, we are a family.
