My Festival Essentials


    I know Coachella is over but let's be honest here, being the most instagrammable festival doesn't mean it is the best. And whether it is the best or not there are plenty of festivals coming in the next few months so I thought I would share my essentials with you (if you do not camp).

Water. It might seem silly because "you can get water everywhere" but it is not. Always have a bottle with you that you can fill in the toilet (they often say that the water isn't drinkable but I assure you it's just fine) because festival drinks are always extremely expensive and in the sun and heat it's really important to stay hydrated. It will avoid headaches, dizziness and nausea.

Sweater. You might be dripping with sweat during daytime but the nights are often more chilly so keep a sweater (and eventually a pair of leggings) with you. It does't take muck place in your back or you can tie it around your waist and it will be a life saver. 

Food. Being in a place for 8 to 10 hours a day dancing and jumping around makes people hungry. Just like water the food they sell there might seem delicious but is sooo expensive. So take a shit tone of food to share with your friends (doesn't need to be healthy food don't worry).

Bandaids. For obvious reasons. And you might wanna add some medication for headaches or sore throats as well as tissue. 

Phone charger. Festival are often huge so you might lose your friends eventually. Make sure at least two people have their phones fully charged. A phone charger is really important since phone batteries don't last very long if you use the camera or internet or actually, for iPhone, if you use it point blank.

Bohemian(ish)



Top : Bershka  Shorts : Vintage ♥ Shoes : Zara  Sunnies : Urban Outfitters






   I promise, these are the last pictures I share from my trip to Paradise (aka South of France). It might not be as fancy as Hawaii or the Bahamas or even Cannes or St Tropez but who needs fancy when you have a gorgeous scenery, great friends, charcuterie and wine ? I feel so privileged in my life. I am lucky enough that I am 20 years old, I don't make a living and I can still go on holiday in a beautiful house (owned by one of my friend's family) in a beautiful place and with amazing people. I think it is extremely important to acknowledge how lucky we are and be grateful. I know horrible stuff can happen to great people, I know one can have issues, I know everything is not always rainbows and unicorns but most of us (I mean the people who have access to a computer or something as obvious as running water) are already extremely lucky. 

I took a test yesterday (thanks BuzzFeed for keeping me entertained). It is a series of questions that will determine how privileged one is. I really think everyone should take this test, it really does put things in perspective (spoiler alert : seems like being a straight, white, educated man is the top of the social food chain, too bad for the other 96% of us). Here is the link to the test, I really think everyone should take it.

Adventure



Romper : Mango ♥ Shoes : Zara ♥ Sunglasses : Aldo ♥ Bracelet : Tiffany&co




    Going through these pictures while sitting in my room in gloomy Paris paradoxically makes me really depressed but also really happy. Really depressed that I am not on holiday anymore but really happy I had the chance of being in such a beautiful place with people that I love. Happiness is really hard to define, for me it would be an addition of great moments and this day was especially great. We went exploring around my friends house and ended up in the most beautiful places with the most gorgeous view on the sea. Even though I am not a water person (I am a land animal) I could stare at a calm sea for hours. It is so soothing and calming. It's also a little frightening, you feel so small and vulnerable but that's the beauty of nature knowing that it can take as much as it gives and feeling so lucky in this specific moment that nature decided to give, not to take.
