TODAY’S

MICKEY OUTFITIt’s a sneakers, sweatshirt and no make up day for me. I love so much my Mickey Mouse sweatshirt that I bought a few years ago at Pull&Bear which hasn’t changed a bit and still looks new. Everything is perfect about it; the light grey color is timeless, the fabric is super comfy, the length is as I love it to be so it is kind of my little treasure. I wear it with one of my favorite pair of jeans which are from Zara. And the funny thing is that is the only pair from the brand that really fits me well. I don’t know why but their jeans aren’t made for my body, which is a total opposite when it comes to their trousers. I have a few that are like they have been made for me. Anyways, I bought this pair back in 2009 in Nottingham and shorten them not so long ago and cut knee holes as well. Now I can wear them for another 6 years, hopefully. The little blue coat from Promod is awesome. Coats can be bulky, too rigid and uncomfortable but this one is rad. I love it! Promod has great outwear and if you are looking for trendy, stylish and well made coats or jackets at accessible prices, you need to visit their stores. As for the footwear, I missed wearing my sneakers and went for this super trendy and comfy pair from Stradivarius to finish my navy look. I accessorized it with this amazing scarf from Zara and my must-have bag ‘Le Pliage’ from Longchamp. We Parisians are crazy about this bag which comes in billion different colors, multiple sizes and that is super sturdy.

Wish you all a beautiful Friday and great weekend,

Xo, G.

SNOWBOARDING TIME

SNOWBOARDING KRVAVECI was dying to show you the pictures from the day we spent snowboarding in this magical place called Krvavec, a snow park near Ljubljana.

On Thursday morning when we left the house the weather was quite moody and it even started to rain half-way there so with my husband we were suspicious of what’s been going on up in the mountains. But as soon as we reached the first level Gospinca which is at 1.477m the sun came out which instantly put a smile on our faces and motivated us to go even further and we landed on Krvavec at 1.853m and then, bang, I was lost for words. The view was spectacular. My first reaction was to take out the camera and start snapping all around me. I was a bit hysterical as I couldn’t concentrate and calmly do my thing. It happens when there’s so much beauty around me. The worst thing is that no matter how good the camera is, it is impossible to capture exactly what my eyes were seeing that day. The feeling is also indescribable. I felt so small yet incredibly free. For someone who is afraid of heights, I must admit that I felt pretty comfortable up there.

The snow park also has a cute little restaurant with a beautiful terrace where you can have a snack or tan a bit while sipping on mulled wine. It was amazing and this, despite my frustration as I couldn’t turn on my board and fell a few times on my right shoulder, which felt at the end of the day like I’ve been boxing. But as they say, no pain, no gain and we all need challenges to push us towards our best performance so I kept going and spent the 2 last hours of the day really enjoying snowboarding down the slopes turning on my board and feeling a bit proud because it was my third time ever that I stepped on a board with a 2-year pause in between my second and third time. I would like to thank the best husband on earth who has a great amount of patience and support and without whom all this would not have been possible.

Hope you’ll enjoy the pics guys!

TODAY’S ALL-BLACK LOOK

ALL-BLACK LOOKI thought I would be writing about cooking and sharing with you my beef Bourguignon recipe in today’s post, but it happens that I somehow erased the pictures and will once more talk fashion by sharing pictures of my personal #lookoftheday.
As you can see, I kept it quite minimalist today by wearing an all-black look consisting of a cashmere little black dress, tights and my favorite ankle boots.
This little dress that I occasionally wear as a tunic over jeans, is one of my favorite items of clothing I do possess. Not only it is made of high quality fabric, it also happens to be the most comfortable dress I’ve ever worn. The 3/4 sleeves are another reason why I’m fond of it. As far as I can remember, I always had a special thing for 3/4 sleeves. Like even right now, my pajamas top sleeves are rolled up so it gives it a 3/4 sleeves look. Don’t know where that comes from!?! Or maybe I do… Anyways!
To finish off the look, I went for a beige and white cardigan with a winter motif to keep me warm.
Besides, I thought it gives the look an effortless, easy feel.

Take care guys!

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS

SKIN CARE PRODUCTSAujourd’hui je vais vous présenter mes derniers coups de coeur beauté que j’utilise quotidiennement depuis presque un mois. Si vous me lisez depuis le début, vous devez déjà savoir que ma quête des meilleurs produits de beauté n’a pas de fin et dans l’article d’aujourd’hui je parlerai de ces 6 nouveaux produits qui me facilitent la vie ces derniers temps et avec lesquels je suis super satisfaite, pour dire le moins.

Today I am presenting you with my latest favorite beauty products that I have been using on a daily basis for almost a month. If you are following me since the beginning, you already know that I am constantly seeking for the best beauty products out there and in today’s article I am going to talk about 6 new products that I am utterly satisfied with since they are making my life easier lately.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS URIAGE PRODUITS

Le gel nettoyant d’Uriage est le meilleur produit nettoyant que j’ai utilisé jusqu’à présent, vraiment. Une fois rincée, ma peau devient immédiatement douce et matifiée. C’est tout ce que je demande à un produit nettoyant. Quant à l’odeur, elle est très agréable.

The cleansing gel by Uriage is actually the best cleansing product I have ever used, for real. After I wash it off, my skin instantly becomes smooth and matified. It is all I am asking for from a cleansing gel. As for the smell, it is very gentle.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS EAU MICELLAIRE AVENEC’est la première fois que j’utilise une eau micellaire. Jusqu’à présent, j’achetais toujours des lotions toniques et puis je me suis décidée pour cette eau micellaire d’Avène lorsque je faisais mes courses à la Parapharmacie et là, surprise totale! Ma peau est visiblement plus claire après application et matifiée aussi, donc ce produit est devenu mon petit chouchou que je vous recommande vivement si vous avez une peau à tendance grasse.

It is the first time that I use micellar water. Until now I have always used tonic lotions and this time around I went for this micellar water by Avène by which I am still completely surprised! My skin is visibly more clear and matified after applying it so it quickly became my favorite product that I am strongly advising you to try if you have an oily skin.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS NUXE PRODUITSCette mini crème pour les mains de Nuxe est terrible! Non seulement elle sont suuuper bon mais en plus elle fait bien son boulot.
Le stick à lèvres est génial lui aussi puisqu’il hydrate mes lèvres et les répare. L’odeur est presque inexistante. Les deux produits sont déjà sur ma prochaine liste des courses.

This mini hand cream by Nuxe is terrific! Not only it smells sooo good but it is effective too.
The lip balm is great too as it moisturizes and also repairs my lips. The scent is almost nonexistent. Both of them are already on my next shopping list.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS NEUTROGENA BALMPour mon corps il n’y a rien de mieux que le baume de Neutrogena qui pénètre rapidement et qui laisse un voile de douceur sur la peau. Il est sans effet gras et l’odeur est très douce. J’adore!

For my body there’s no better than the balm from Neutrogena that is rapidly absorbed and leaves the skin extremely smooth. There is no greasy effect and the scent is very gentle. I love it!

Wish you a beautiful weekend guys!

LOFFIE JEWELRY – PART 2

LOFFIE JEWELRY PART 2 FPTLAnd here comes the second part of my collaboration with #Loffie Semi Joias, a jewelry brand from Brazil that creates amazing fine jewelry. This time I am showing you the pieces the jewelry founder and creator Marielli Oliveira Tinoco has offered me and that I am totally in love with.
I actually loved every and each of the jewels she brought to Paris, but with this pair of earrings – and a matching necklace that I haven’t used yet but certainly will when the opportunity arises – it was love at first sight. It is so my style. When I go for elegant jewelry, I like it quite statement particularly when it comes to earrings for the simple reason that I want to avoid overdoing it when dressing for a formal event, and by going only for one piece of jewelry that is quite bold and eye-catching, I know I am doing it right.
Can’t wait to wear these treasures with a gorgeous glamorous dress! Can’t wait!

When we talked with Marielli about her creations, she explained that she got inspired by the London Eye when designing the earrings I picked and when it started to snow the other day, I came up with the idea to shoot them in nature before using them in a more ‘appropriate’ elegant outfit because they also remind me of a snow flake. There is no doubt that these earrings are made for me!

I just have one funny comment to make about how I felt after seeing the pictures. Doesn’t the shoot remind you of the movie Dumb and Dumber? I am so Mary Samsonite with my short hair, oversized coat and snow boots! Ahh ^_^ …

Hope you’ll enjoy the pics guys!
Have a nice one.
