“Be more with less”

As you may know from my previous posts, I have been all about minimalism.

Last week I stumbled upon this website that is all about having a “with less” lifestyle.

So far, I was all about this “less is more” vibe in what concerns beauty, fashion, decor but I never really gave much thinking about a “less is more” lifestyle.

So when I discovered  BeMoreWithLess.com, not only I got introduced to this new way of living, but I loved reading how to adapt it and the benefits it would give.

The last post I read there was “11 Surprising Things About Becoming a Minimalist”:

1. You will be friendlier.
2. Silence is more appealing.
3. You’ll make better decisions.
4. Happiness becomes a decision.
5. You can go without.
6. Live a healthier lifestyle.
7. You can buy when you are ready.
8. Simple is sexy
9. You can be more confident.
10. Develop a personal style
11. You can be open to uncertainty.

Curious? Read more there!

I am all about constant improvement in life, and I truly believe that it is important that we get inspiration from places like this to learn or at least be reminded of the small little things in life.

January Favorites!

Hi guys! I hope you are all doing fine!

I am so excited for this post because it is my first “favorites of the month”!

I discovered this when more active in the blogosphere and youtubesphere – Christmas 2012. I love reading, watching them. Most of the time, people chose to share their beauty favorites. As you may have noticed, beauty is a very discrete (but present) topic on P&F. I really like beauty products but it is not the field where I get completely crazy and want to buy everything. 

So my favorites are going to be really really random things that I’ve be enjying (obsessed) during the month. I hope you like seeing those and that you can discover some things you did not know about and get crazy about it too! 

Don’t hesitate in telling me what you think of all the items that I post on my month favorites! I’m curious to see if we agree, if you had different experiences with those items etc. I’m so excited!

Let’s go!

1. Thermal Spraying Water by Uriage
I have been loving this since I bought it around Christmas. I spray it all over my face in the morning after I washed my face and apply my lotions. It feels so fresh and definitely wakes you up in the morning. After it dries, I apply my make up 😉

2. Fuzzy socks
Hmm… Do I need to say anything? These are the best for the winter time. I knew they existed but never purchased them for a certain reason… A few weeks ago, I decided to finally buy them and – oh dear – now I understand why everyone is crazy about them. 

3. Thought Catalog
I shared many times on my blog some post by Thought Catalog. I follow them here on wordpress and also on facebook. They are the best. If you don’t know this website you should definitely check it out. Basically they write posts about random things for people in their 20s (like me). It goes from lifestyle to love… it covers many different topics and I love reading it! It is written in a very fun way!

4. Stumble Upon
Best discovery ever! I discovered this while watching a vlof by Nikki Phillippi. This site is amazing. For those who don’t know it yet, check it out. Basically you enter all your interests and then everytime you click “Stumble”” you get to a website that is realted to your interests. But not a random website.. THE COOLEST SITES EVER! They are so so amazing. Really, check it out 😉

5. Juices!
My juicer has been my best friend during this month. As I already told on my blog, I started playing with it lately. And really, it is the best thing ever, fun, good for your health… Who wants more? 
Okay, I have to say my juicer is a bit less fancy but who cares! hahaha

6. Maple Syrup
Less healthy, I know. But I have also been obsessed with maple syrup after Christmas. It had been a while since last time I had some (here in Europe – at least in France and Portugal it is not the most usual thing to get on your pancakes/bread). 

7. Bath and Body Works Winter Candle
A candle that I have been burning during this month. It is amazing how smell can remind you of something. Now I am so in a February mood and when I smell that candle i feel so January! haha

Last but not least:

Health – Soups!

Hey guys!

I hope you are all doing very fine.

I have been looking at some delicious looking recipes and ideas of snacks. The ones that made me want to try them the most were salads! However because it is still kind of cold, I decided to start sharing with you some soups (creamy ones are my fave)!

Today’s Song

Hello! As the title suggests (very explicitly), today is a Musings post! Enjoy 😉

Fashion

I think this shirt is amazing and those frekles make me so jealous! I want the same customized shirt!

Food

Well, you should know that I have been crazy about making juices. I discovered that we had an old juicer at home (that works perfectly because it has almost never been used) and did not stop making juices since then. Yesterday, I found this link with some very cool recipes that I really recommend to check out. Here.

Fun

WAW – that is a cute little girl! I actually chose to post this one because I freaked out when I saw this pic. It just looks like a mini actual me (I have darker hair though). I mean those glasses and this  messy bun + the fact that she is holding a book (I am always hollding a book or some notes when I am arround my university). So so cute. Hope that made you smile (and hope you are listening to the song! :p).

XOXO,

Yummy kind of Healthy Snacks

Hello!

Well.. I cannot lie to you. These are not going to be the most healthy snacks ever, but the main idea is that they are something else than chips/candies/cookies (well and they are not BAD for you) .

Before getting more hungry let me show these little treasures!

This one is the most healthy snack that I am going to share today. I looove cucumbers! Actually for people who like cucumbers this is not an unusual snack so I should have no reason to be sharing this like crazy. But the fact is that when I saw this pic I realized that it had been a while since the last time I ate some! And OMG… with salt and pepper.. maybe a touch of squeezed lemon.. HUMM!
So if you want to go healthy, there you go!

new style

Now a bit less healthy but definitley the coolest to eat in front of your TV 😉 – ROASTED ALMONDS! HOW YUMMY IS THAT?
I absolutely love almonds, pecan, nuts, pistachios. I cannot say anything more because I am starting to get very very hungry.
I never tries almonds roasted with rosemary but I am sure they are delicious! Definitely need to make some (here).

Now moving to SWEET POTATOE! I am cra-zy about sweet potatoes. I think it is just so good and perfect for the fall/winter time. I usually eat them in a very simple way with with meat meals. But what if, I spiced them a bit following these steps?

Keeping the sweet potatoe theme, I also found this very cool way of eating them! Check it out here.

& Now I think I need to go cook dinner.

XOXO,
