Summer is slowly fading and the only confort I can find in it is trading my tanktops for autumn clothes. As much as I like summer dresses and late-night sunsets, I like the switch of style from one season to another. This style is perfect for the end of summer. When Zaful sent me this shift dress I was amazed by how me this pattern is. Watercolor, birds, colorful. It is a bit short but pairing it with my favorite rain boots makes it less apparent (I don’t like showing off too much of my legs at once I guess). Oh and have a look at my purse! It’s handmade with thick leather and bought directly from the artist in Fes, Morocco. Yes, that’s where I spend my vacations this summer! Hopefully, i’ll be posting some of my favorite shots soon!
When I saw this amzing print while scrolling down one of my favorite designer’s blog, Cocorrina, I smiled. I just chopped 7 dear inches off my beloved long hair (which was totally liberating by the way), and my friend called me Taylor-swift-with-tattoos. The decision has been hard to make but hey, if taylor can do it, I can too!
Lately, I had the chance to receive the title of brand ambassador for Lampe Berger. This is quite a deal to me because I loooooooved my first lamp so much and don’t think I can live without a sweet fragrances flowing in my apartment anymore. With that being said, I now get the chance to try their new fragrances which makes me irrationally happy. What’s better than a divine-smelling home, especially when you invite people over? Oh and look at the new lamp they sent me! Isn’t it the cutest?
These are the 4 fragrances I got to try lately. Here’s what I think:
Magnificent Vetiver This limited edition fragrance is nothing short of special. There’s something very sophisticated about it. Although I liked it a lot, I thought it was a little too strong for me so I simply diluted it with a few onces of neutral. and TADAAA! Softer and still very dreamy.
Very useful! This will turn strong scents into softer scents but you can also use it alone when you simply wanna get rid of bad odors in your home. A must-have for any Lampe Berger owner!
Sensual Bouquet Very feminine and flowery, this smell will leave your home feeling like a romantic getaway. Time for a little seduction game?
This one is definitely my favorite. From the moment I poured the liquid inside my lamp I knew I’d stock up on this fragrance in case of world war III (and because it’s a limited edition). Peaches, vanilla & floral notes there’s nothing deceiving about it! Soft, sweet and fruity, just like any of the perfumes I wear on myself.
Lately I’ve been feeling a little wind of change. Going from brunette to white blond (and pink, and lilac, i’m not settled yet!) sure is quite a change and I did have to update my wardrobe quite a bit. Here’s the style moodboard I put up due to my recent head change. Pure black and white. Fun patterns, metallics and sparkles (of course) and a few pops of color (like a cute manicure or a bold lipstick). Doesn’t this moodboard feel relaxing? Like a breath of fresh air. Just like spring, finally! & Aren’t these copper oxford shoes the best?
What’s your style feeling like these days?

If I had to live in an imaginary world, it would probably be all glitters, pastel cakes, vintage bicycles, sprinkles and tassels. With lots of light. ALL DAY. I can’t help it. I’m a kid at heart, and I refuse to grow up on some things. When I stumbled upon Studio Mucci‘s instagram account, it was love at first sight. Studio Mucci is Amina Mucciolo’s colorful design firm and Etsy shop specialized in pastel tassels garlands and piñatas, or in other words; a dream come true. Need I say more?
Once again, it seems like The Body Shop don’t know how to deceive me. Ever since I started using their products, I’ve been more than excited to try a new one because it seems like they really get me, my skin and my hair. They just do. And who wouldn’t fall for their cute packaging and the scent of their products. And let’s be honest, their stance against animal cruelty and community fair trade program makes them one of the best beauty product company out there. It’s good to buy from a company that care about the planet.
Now, let me introduce you to me new lil’ favorite from The Body Shop. The lip & cheek velvet stick, or YOUR NEXT PURSE ESSENTIAL. You probably know by now that I am a sucker for bold colored lips and I have an impressive collection of lipsticks. Lip crayon are definitely my favorites, and these new babies are most likely my new go-to colored lip sticks. And not only are they made for your lips, but you can also use them as blush on your cheeks! Big YAY! And the velvety texture and matte finish of them is to-die-for. They’re offered in 6 charming colors (I am wearing 20 Pink) and if you don’t know which one to chose, you can also have it in the universal shade. The stick is black and quite mysterious, but once you apply it on your lips or cheeks, it blends with you skin pH to offer a unique shade. Pure magic, I know! Gotta try it to believe it ;)
Oh and have you seen their new Smoky Poppy Collection? I’ve tried the body butter (perfectly rich for winter harshness), shower gel and body scrub so far and I am enchanted. The smell is simply divine! And I loooooooove the black packaging so badly.
So my boyfriend and I decided to move in together this summer, and ever since we started talking about it and looking for an apartment, I’ve been daydreaming of ways to decorate it and curating photos of spaces that feel so inspiring. I know I’ll have to slow down on pink & gold accents but I’m sure we’ll find the right balance that satisfies us both. This plywood decor is what my dreams are made of right now. And how gorgeous is this pastel door? Seriously. Maybe someday :)
If I take a dive into my childhood memories, I can recall a few smell I grew up with. My dad’s motorcycle in the garage, my mom’s pot roast cooking in the kitchen or scented candles burning in the living room, summer days by the pool, surrounded by fresh-cut grass and line-dried bed sheets at night. I can also remember the day my mom bought her first & precious Lampe Berger and the smell of honeysuckle fragrance that filled the dinning room as the lamp burned. It was a dark blue lamp with a gold artwork on it. Something like a zodiac-sign painting, maybe. It looked like a magic lamp to me, and there was something very whimsical about it.
Lampe Berger sent me this gorgeous red lamp (perfect for valentine’s day!!) to try their new fragrance and I couldn’t be happier to travel back into some of my sweetest memories. And it seems like they read my mind when they sent me their Fresh Linen fragrance. Most certainly one of my favorite smell IN THE WORLD.
If you never heard about Lampe Berger before, the principle is charmingly simple. It’s a small lamp with an exclusive patented burner system that purifies and perfumes the air in enclosed spaces like no other, to improve your house air quality. The heat generated by the catalytic burner attracts and eliminates unwanted odors. Plus, they’re offered in a variety of shapes and styles to fit your home decor and there’s more than 40 fragrances available to choose from! They even have a neutral home fragrance to destroy unwanted odors, without fragrancing (or you can simply mix with other fragrances to dilute the intensity of the other fragrance!).
Do you own a Lampe Berger or have you ever tried it?
My lamp (shown above) is the Ovalie.

Last summer, my boyfriend and I travelled to sunny California to discover and snap photos of Los Angeles and San Francisco (I should finally be editing photos of SF anytime soon!). While we were in L.A. Pier-Luc took a few pictures of me for a potential style post that I obviously forgot about until now. Funny seeing myself with brown hair now that I’vebeen keeping them way lighter for a while! & how I miss the warmth of summer!
I borrowed this sleeveless t-shirt from a friend while packing my suitcase without even realizing it was written California on it. ha! I paired it with my favorite boyfriend jeans for the comfiest walking-around-in-L.A. kind of days. Though, the sun was pretty hot & shiny out there and I did not bring anything to cover my head so I bought a cap on our first day, and I found this hat at H&M on our second day, in Santa Monica. I’ve been looking for a large sunhat for a while and I’m glad I brought one home! Now I can’t wait for next summer to wear it again (not the best match with a winter coat!).
