I recently moved to a flat in Paris to get closer to my University. This is the first time I’m living on my own which makes me so excited!
As I love interior design and homewear I am thrilled to start decorating everything and organizing the space the way I want it to be. I can’t wait to have a whole appartment being 100% me!
However, student issues, I need to do that on a budget which constrains me a little me. BUT THAT SHALL NOT BE A PROBLEM! There are so many cool ideas and tips to decorate your flat on a budget – and I have been pinning them all along the years so this is a great opportunity to explore them!
Here is a selection of my moodboard for the flat – you can find the rest of it here (I will keep updating it) as well of the rest of my Pinterest boards here!

I thought I would share some more personal things on the blog and sharing with you the highlight of my week. I would love for you to share them as well in the comments this way we can all learn from eachother and discover new things all around the world.
As I’m appartment hunting in Paris, I have plenty of time to wander around the city and explore coffeshops, stores, exhibs, among many others.
1) A very exciting discovery was Artazart. If you are not familiar, Artazart is an amazing design bookstore. They have a huge selection of any type of design book you would be looking for, some are more graphic, some more intellectual. Some are amazing coffee table books, others are great tools to start creating (wether it is a company, a interior space, an art collection, a diy, you name it!)
And if these lines weren’t covincing enough I would suggest you to check out the tripadvisor reviews this store has. And trust me, these reviews are well deserved.
Here are some book that I stumbled upon and loved (some are only in French sorry):
And THIS, how cool is it? First notebook made out of stone. What?!! ❤
2) Exhib : L’Amérique des Kennedy – “Kennedy’s America”
This was a lovely exhib, the gallery is absolutely gorgeous and I got to learn many new things especially about Robert Kennedy and the whole family.
3) White Nail Polish + White Loafers
(Shoes – Nail Polish – Rings)
Let me know if this is something you would like to see more often! And please, let me know what are YOUR highlights of the week. 🙂
Today I wanted to share a small shop in Paris that I discovered last month. My cousin spotted it right away and as soon as I got in I was completely in love with the store.
It’s called John Woodbridge and sells amazing vintage looking travel and sport items.
This company which is quite recent (2013) aims to spread the love of vintage objects that are full of history.
Over there, you’ll find amazing leather pieces for travelling or old looking baseball balls among any others.
Here are some pics from their website.
The whole atmosphere of the store is gorgeous, it has this kind of man cave vibes to it that I find super charming.
If you are ever in the lovely area of St Paul in Paris, I highly recommend you check it out.
PS: And if you are really into vintage sports like this, check out their tumblr page which will be an absolute delight for you! Well done!
Mr. Total Black Look.
I’ve flown out from Paris to Porto for these holidays and could not pack many things in my luggage. Plus, as I am a complete disaster when it comes to packing (although reading tons of tips about that) now it appears that I am struggling a lot for putting together some cute outfits. Sigh.
And oh well, when nothing else works, go for a total black look.
Inspo found on Pinterest. Hope you enjoy!
What I particularly love about this outfit is the whole texture game. I love the chunky and oversized cardigan. Brings so much to the outfit.
Well here – do I need to a say a thing? YES. DA HAT. Love it.
This one, well. It could be me on a sassy-ish day 😉 Love the chunky scarf, the suit and the shoes – need to get my hands on good pair like this ASAP.
Hope you enjoyed!
I’m officially anouncing that I’m on a Navy Rehab. You heard me. Color navy. (Spoilet alert- it looks like December is going to be All Gold Everything – stay tuned)
Let’s think black or something else for December. In any case, I hope you like these articles that have been my go to accessories for the month.
