2018: goals, wishlist and more

There is nothing more exciting than a new start, a clean slate where you can draw and write anything you want. We are so incredibly lucky to get one every 365 days and I think more people should take the time to actually reflect on this. We all need direction in our life and because of how busy hectic most of our days are, we can lose track of where we're going and on the long run this can only bring us down and make us feel unhappy with our lives.
My advice to you is to sit down in front of a sheet of paper (or surrounded by all the things that you got last year and that you've worked so hard for, like I did here) and think of all the things that make you happy. Write them down and do your best to tick everything off that list this year. I can be anything, from spending more time with your friends and family, to getting a new bag or pair of shoes, to getting a new puppy (and if you can't get an actual dog just volunteer at your local shelter! They're always looking for people to walk dogs. You'll be making a lil pup's day and he'll be making yours :) ).

This year is the first time my wishlist has barely any material things in it: I used to lust over so many trendy bags and amazing shoes but when I think about it, those things, while still absolutely beautiful, don't add a lot to my everyday life. Instead, what makes me smile is going to brunch with my girlfriends (especially Yana from @MissYanaCherie), taking pictures for you guys, reading books and travelling. So I joined a book club (and you should join us too!), I already booked 4 trips for this year (and will probably book a few more tbh) and I'm trying to put together some cool and fun content for all of you guys!

You can do literally anything you set your heart to, you just need to take the first step. I hope you all make 2018 your BEST year yet! What are some of yours goals and wishes?

Handbag collection

Today is #NationalHandbagDay and what better to to celebrate this fun day than to bring all of my babies out for a family picture?? :D I have loved and cherished every single one of them from the moment I bought them and have used all of them so much! I am ashamed to admit that there are still a ton of bags on my wishlist but I am so very grateful for everything I have! Not that I haven't worked my ass off to be able to afford every single one, because I really have.

So to us, handbags lovers out there, may our collections keep on growing! :D

(Of course I realized only after taking these that my Drew and a Chanel bag were missing but all of the others are here i promise!)

February favorites

February flew by so fast with all of the fashion week chaos and here we are at the end of the month with another favorites post. I love to recap my most used items in each category every month because it makes me realize which products I really love and which buys were not so necessary after all. How about you? Let me know in the comments below some of your favorite products!

FASHION

I've been in Guadeloupe for the most part of the month so my fashion faves are going to be beach essentials! Bikinis to be exact! These three are my current favorites and it's no surprise: I'm such a sucker for anything pink and sparkly, white and lacey and super colorful.

Hat: H&M (old) - Sunglasses: Ray Ban Clubmaster - White lace bikini: Target - Pink sequins bikini: Victoria's Secret (old) - Colorful bikini: Target.

BEAUTY

Having a candle as a beauty favorite may appear bizarre but just hear me out: these Lemon West candles are made of 100% pure soy wax and essential oils and they have become my guilty pleasure when it comes to moisturizing. Every time I hop in a bath I light one and not only they make the whole bathroom smell divine but when I get out I use the melted wax as lotion on my legs and arms. They are also vegan, toxin free and against animal testing! It really doesn't get much better than these!

Candles: Lemon West - Monogram mug: Anthropologie - Lipsticks: YSL Rouge Volupté - Lipstick organizer: Marshalls - Macaron trinkets: Urban Outfitters

MAKEUP

It wouldn't be a favorites post without my most used lipsticks of the month. Living in the Caribbean I don't end up using that much makeup and only go for a bold lip and a little eyeliner most of the time. So I really have my fun when it come to switching up the colors and textures of my lip products. This month was literally all over the place with matte nudes and creamy corals and satin purples.

Pale pink lipstick: Giambattista Valli x MAC - Purple lipstick: Milani cosmetics 34 Violet Volt - Burgundy lipstick: YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats - NYX SMLC16 in Cairo - NARS Velvet matte lip pencil in Cruella - YSL Rouge Volupté 27

ACCESSORIES

Life in the Caribbean is all about color! These were some of my most used accessories this month: every time I go out for a drink or to the restaurant with some friends I love to keep my outfit simple and monochromatic and simply add statement shoes and a killer bag!

Bicolor clutch: Céline - Flamingo heels: Sophia Webster - Pink Tumbler: Starbucks - Orange pumps: Dolce & Gabbana - Color block wedges: Giuseppe Zanotti - Orange mini crossbody bag: Céline trio small - Pink tote: Céline mini luggage - Pink and yellow pumps: B by Brian Atwood - Blue tote: Prada.

NEW IN

My fave purchase of the month were these white Nike Roshe. I am not a sneakers kind of girl but I've been wanting these for almost a year now so I decided to finally buy them and thank god I did! They're super comfy of course and make me feel super stylish while working out, which makes me want to work out even more! Apparently these are all the motivation I needed to work out regularly! :D

RANDOM

I just can't hide my excitement when it come to room decor. This month I switched up some of the prints on my gallery wall and rearranged the shelves in my room. I am thinking about adding some floating shelves on the wall next to my bed to create some additional organizing space. Maybe room tour coming up? :D

Shoes: Givenchy - Candle: Diptyque - Prints: Chicfetti
