Discovery: John Woodbridge – Paris

Hello,

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!

Cheers,

Homebar Inspiration

Inspo Board

1234

I am in this particular phase of summer where everyone around me is  wrapping up summertime and planning for their projects next year. Although we are still in vacation, I can feel things slowing down a little bit and moving towards what I like to call “The September Vibe”.

I have been catching up with a bunch of friends lately, telling eachother our vacation and it has been great. And for those little gathering parties, I have to say, a good homebar is a must!

I decided to create this inspiration board to share how I would personally style mine. As you may have seen in other posts, I love a good minimalist decoration. So really, sharing my must haves in a inspo board was kind of hard, but I stumbled upon all these pictures which really are a good reflection of what you would be able see on top of my homebar.

Here are my personal must haves:

Nice Furniture: I found this bar stool on Chairish.com, a website that is specialized in vintage furniture. They have gorgeous pieces that I highly invite you to check out.

Fresh Plants: Having some fresh plants, flowers OR – a single jumbo leaf in a vase. I saw that on a recent post from apairandasparediy.com and I absolutely loved it. It is just so simple, chic and it really is not that hard to find.

Drinks and Snacks: If I was to entertain a small group or just a friend or two, I would definitely chill around the bar with a bottle of wine, cheese, some nuts and fresh fruit. Because I mean you know.. you have to treat yourself 😉

Cosy Lighting: Another must-have for me are those long hanging lights. I think they dress up the room so nicely, and if you want a more cosy room, turning all the bigger lights off and leaving these on, gives such a nice atmosphere.

How would you personally style your home bar?

Eyelashes DIY

Hi guys!

No.. this is not a DIY to grow your eyelashes or anything like that… However it is the perfect post for the ones who love eyelashes & DIY’s!

This is kind of a random post where I picked some things that I have been liking and want to create!

So let’s see what we got there!

I have been loving this picture for so so long now! When I first saw it on Pinterest I kind of did not know what to think about it because it striked me so much, but then I realize that this girl is just amazingly beautiful. What stroke me is actually gorgeous! It is this bold eye look that she has, I mean come on! Her eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows are so so nice! This picture is really simple but I really love it. I wish I had such an amazing picture of myself. Amazing.

Now few days ago, I saw this picture while looking for some DIYs on Pinterest! I just thought this little project was so cool and I am actually thinking about putting it on the wall behind my bed. I think it is going to look very cute. NOW I NEED YOU MY DEAR READERS, my bedroom is white and kind of a champagne color, so I don’t really know what colors I should use for this.. I mean pink is definitely a great color when it comes to representing a heart.. (duh) but I think I am going to get bored after a while. I have some silver touches as well, so I thought replacing the gold paper on the DIY with a silver one. Then for the 2 other colors I really don’t know.. I mean white paper on the white walls is going to look strange. I thought about a very pale baby green as I have flowers a lot of time around my bedroom (and they always have at least their leaves that are green). But I don’t really know. I need your help to pick 3 colors! Please let your suggestions in the comments!

Now ladies and gentlemen.. the most expected, the amazing, the funnieeeeeeest EYELASHES EYE MASK! *tadaa*
How cool is this eye mask? I mean you can take all your make up off before you go to bed and not be afraid of looking bad when you sleep (bold eyelashes style – oh yea). I saw this one at Claire’s today and I think it is still available (at least in their website it is). Love it!
I think I am going to buy a very simple eye mask and then DIY to get to this style. Or maybe buy it. I’ll see!

Hope you like these little eyelashes/DIY stuff!

XOXO,

Almost December? XMAS GIFTS!

Today’s XMAS Song!

Hello everyone! Today is November, 28th and I’m getting so excited for Christmas!

There is only one thing that I don’t like during this holiday: decorating the house + buying all the christmas presents in a rush. I think both of these activities can be so good, but you really have to be in the mood to enjoy them. SO: no stress, and let’s start thinkng about the perfect presents for our family and friends RIGHT NOW!

I discovered this year, a lot of pinterest pages with christmas wish lists, and they really do inspire you (definitely recommend you to type “christmas list pinterest” or “christmas wish list pinterest” on Google. Plus, since we’re not in the best economical period (especially in Europe) I think all the DIY activites can be a great solution for some super cute and customer friendly gifts!

Do you have other ways of getting inspired for Xmas gifts?

What are you asking Santa this year? Can wait to read about it!

Thank you so much for your support, you guys are the best.

XOXO,
