Be Active!

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog!

Since August started, I decided to go back and being active. So for the past weeks I’ve been running with my father and working out more. That’s why I thought it would be nice to share with you one routine I really like to do.

This workout, it’s all about the legs, but you can also add some planks or crunches to work your upper body. And keep in mind that I’m not an expert, I just want to share what I do with you! Continue reading

Holidays Near Grenoble

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m here because I wanted to share with you all the things I did in my latest holidays. I have already done one post where I shared most of the photos of my time in France. But as I barely explained to you what we did there I decided to make a post all about this.

First of all I wanted to say that I really enjoyed this holidays with my family. We stayed in a hotel near Grenoble for five days and we had such a great time hiking and visiting the museums of the zone. Continue reading

Summer calls for a change…

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m here not to talk about any topic or things I like, I’m here because I want to go through some changes that will happen in this blog during the month of August. So keep reading to keep updated with everything on this blog!

I’ve been wanting to do this post for a long time now so I think it’s now finally time to share with you some little changes I want to do here. I hope you like them and as always I will be more than happy to read all your comments with suggestions and opinions!

CHANGES ON THE AGENDA:

The first thing that is changing here is that I decided to add a post on the week’s schedule. So there will not be two posts a week, THREE! Well, at least now that I’m on holidays and I can manage to write them all. We will see what happens when I go back to school.

I want this extra post to be like a life update. I’m planning on sharing things I’ve been doing and what I’m up to. It will be every Firday so write this day on your agenda! What do you think of this extra post?

INSTAGRAM WORLD:

Now let’s get into the Instagram world. As many of you know, I have an Instagram account (go and check it out!) where I post photos about my everyday life. And I decided to start another account which will be called the CREATIVE CAPSULE.

There you will find all kinds of photos I came across with and I like. So it will be the perfect source of inspiration for both, you and me! You really need to check it out (and maybe follow it too!) because I will start posting as soon as this post goes live.

MAKING THE BLOG PRETTIER:

And here they come so changes you may already noticed. They are all about how this blog looks. The first thing you may have notice it’s that since one week ago all the main photos are in black and white. I feel like they give to the blog a more sophisticated look and I just love the whole look.

Also, I’m changing the logo from now on, the logo will be those photos you see in this post. I’m really proud of the result, what’s your opinion?

Moreover, I’m thinking of changing my WordPress theme to another.  I’m not so sure about this one, but I think it’s time to change things a bit. That’s why this will maybe happen by the end of Summer. So if you know any theme that will suit me or you have any tip make sure to leave it down below.

MILESTONES:

Finally, it’s time to talk about my blog anniversary! Because this August my blog turns one year and I want to make something special. I don’t have anything in mind so all suggestions are welcomed! What would you love for me to do?

And I think these are all the points I wanted to share with you. I really hope you are excited for all the changes as I am.

Remember! I want your opinion, any suggestions about my blog anniversary or the theme blog will be welcomed! And of course I want to hear your opinion about these changes!

Love, M.

Snippets Of My Holidays

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog!

I’m back from my holidays in France so I thought that the first post I should do after them is about some snippets of my holidays.

If you still don’t know what I’m talking about, let me explain you. I was on holidays with my family near a town called Grenoble in France. We had such a good time and I made sure to take lots of photos so that I could share them with you. That’s what this post is all about!

I’m also planning on doing a more detailed post of what we exactly did and where we went. So let me know in the comments if you want a post like this soon! For the moment, enjoy these beautiful pictures of my holidays!

DAY 1. France, Here We Go! Continue reading

Bloggers Helping Bloggers

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog!

A few days ago I received an email from a reader asking me about some tips to grow her blog and because this isn’t the only email I received about that subject, I decided to make a post with some of my tips when it comes to blogging.

I’m not an expert, but I have been blogging for almost a year, so I just want to share these tips with you that hopefully will be helpful. They are mostly for bloggers, but if you are a reader who doesn’t have a blog you may enjoy it as well. Let’s get started!

What I’ve Been Loving

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog!

It’s Sunday and this week is time to share with you some of my latest favourites. As you may already seen, it’s been a while since I did this kind of post. So here you will find a mix of all my Spring/Summer favourites.

The first thing I want to share with you is this really cute T-shirt from Pull&Bear. Last week I shared an outfit with it so you can find more info about it there. But I just find it so summery, easy to match and perfect for an everyday look.

Another thing I shared with you last week was this cute PJ which is perfect for Summer nights. And you know, IT’S BETTER IN LA!

Next, we have two toilet bags! Now that the travel season is here they work perfectly. I’ve got a big one where you can fit everything and it has these bluish colours. It was a gift for me and I really like it!

The other one I had it for more than one year and it’s perfect to bring with you bits and bobs when you travel. So I think they are both really useful and so beautiful.

Then moving into the beauty category I want to show you this hand and body lotion which smells soooo good. It’s blueberries and figs scented and it’s just the perfect smell to start with the day.

I also really like that the packaging has this cheerful quotes that make you want to use the product even more.

Moving into music, books and stationary, in the last few days I’ve been rereading magazines I got for my birthday. I like to look at the fashion and get some inspiration for the blog. Do you recommend me any magazines for me to read?

About music, the latest post was all about music so if you want to know my favourite songs for the Summer check that out. But for the last few days the ones I’m loving are Most Girls from Hailee Steinfeld, There’s Nothing Holding Me Back from Shawn Mendes and Malibu from Miley Cyrus.

Another thing I have also been loving are my little notebooks that I use for my blog. They help me to be organised and apart from being useful they are really cute. What do you think?

Finally, what’s a favourites without food? And now that it’s Summer, it’s time for ice cream. The one I love is the new coconut ice cream from Magnum. I discovered one week ago and it has already become my favourite.

And that’s it for this post! I hope you had a great time reading it and that you now have something to try during the Summer.

Share in the comments you latest favourites and if you share some favourites with me!

Love, M.

Change Your Weekend Mornings

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog!

Today I feel like talking about what I do on weekend mornings and no, it’s not sleeping! I have always thought that holidays are for doing things, they aren’t made to do nothing. Of course you need to rest, but it’s also the perfect time to do things you can’t do on a daily basis.

That’s why ever since I was a kid, I like to wake up early (I know that many of you would be like, I just want to sleep in the mornings!) and take advantage of the free day. I may read a book when I have nothing to do or sometimes I check my phone.

 

But usually, on Saturday or Sunday mornings my dad and I watch some TV series. We are currently watching Abstract a kind of series/documentary on Netflix. It’s all about different designers and what they do every day and their big projects. I totally recommend it to you! I haven’t finished yet, but I especially like the one where you can see how is the life of a shoe designer.

Before we started this series, we were watching The Apprentice from BBC. And it also was a show we really enjoyed. We watch two full seasons and some random episodes. In this show, you get close to the business world and you see the path that candidates resort to become the apprentice of Sir Alan Sugar. You need to watch it!

 

Finally, now that the hot weather has arrived, we also go for a run around the nature. A great way to start the day!

What do you do on weekend mornings? I hope I gave some ideas to take the most of weekends!

Love, M.
