Lifestyle | 10 Things I Can’t Live Without.

As I’m writing this blogpost, I’m feeling thankful. I do what I love on a laptop that I wanted and needed. Not only do I use it for my blogging, but also for my college. Making reports to writing blogposts and store pictures is just a glimpse of what I do on my laptop.

The next item I can’t live without, just like many Loves, is my phone. I got an iPhone 8+ and it works perfectly. It is just like my laptop, but in a small size. Again, I do everything with it. Post something on my social media to making notes.

Writing about notes, notebooks! You always will find one in my bag. They are perfect for writings and for to-dos. I also write my blog ideas in it, quick college notes and other scribbles. I am a hoarder when it comes to notebooks. When I see cute ones, I can’t resist to take it and put in the shopping basket. I have them in different shapes and sizes, it is truly like an addiction!

Drinking lots of water is such a struggle, I even forget it! Simply because I’m too busy during my day. To remind myself I got myself a water bottle, a sugar pink one that I put in my bag for on the go.

To relax and have me time after a hectic day, I light candles in my room. When I put the lights out and put a movie on or watch a series on Netflix I come to rest. My body goes instantly into the relaxing mode. I can watch good series or a movie for hours! On top of that, it suits my room decor perfectly.

As I’m writing this list, I have ended up with beauty related items. Wipes are definitely something I need in my bag. They come such in need when I just have eaten between my classes or I feel that my hands need a wipe.

I have to use hand cream after using wipes or washing my hands. My hands tend to feel taut and dry. So, I had to add it into my list! I feel so annoyed when I don’t find one in my bag that I let them in my bags for when I take another bag with me.

Same goes for lip gloss! I’m hooked on the ones from Dior. They are quite long lasting that I only apply it once or twice during my day. Even the glow fades away, I still feel my lips are well moisturized.

When I make myself ready to go, either to my classes or run errands, I have to use perfume. It turned into a habit for me. After using deodorant, I spray perfume on my neck, wrists and on my clothes and hair. I love how the scent pops up when you move during the day!

Jewellery is the last item on my list. If you know me well Loves, I love to add flair into an outfit. Jewellery adds that flair! I feel quite ‘’naked’’ when I forget to put earrings on or rings around my fingers. I just love how it looks on my hands and wrists!

Lifestyle | Coffee Table Books.

I have a love and hate relationship with books. When I was younger, I devoured book after book, from novels to biographies. As I got older, I slacked reading them and the rise of social media didn’t help me either. To be honest I miss those days where I dropped my backpack in a corner and went straight to my room to read my favourite book at the moment.

I’m trying to get that feeling back so, I smile when I find the perfect coffee table book to start with getting back into the reading rhythm. The short poems/stories from Rupi Kaur is one of my favourites at the moment. Some are so relatable, funny and sad at the same time. Definitely books that takes you riding back to your memory lane.

Fashion related books makes me smile too. The quotes give you a glimpse of the thoughts from fashion designers and stylists. It is fun to read and some you need to take with a grain of salt. I love the pictures or illustrations you’ll find in the books. Many are taken or drawn by well know photographers and illustrators who works behind the scenes of a photoshoot, event or even a fashion magazine! So, not only it gives me a glimpse of their thoughts but, also the events they visited and since I like to visit events for my blog is it for me fascinating to look at.

Same goes for the book How to be Parisian wherever you are, from Sophie Mas, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret and Anne Berest. The book is about love, style and bad habits with many anecdotes and how-to. A book that makes you take life not seriously and enjoy the moment. Perfect for days when you want to laugh and imagine you wandering styled like a Parisian in the middle of Paris in the Larudée shop eating your favourite macaron and sipping tea. Ugh…Dreaming about it already!
