My Pinterest & Instagram

Hello everyone! I wanted to make this post all about my Pinterest and Instagram account (yes a little bit of self-promo!).

 I don't have a lot of posts on my Instagram, as I'm not Instagram-addicted or anything like some others who post weekly or even daily. I just post pictures on certain occasions of my friends, family, vacations... Although this year, I think one of my New Year's resolution is to post more on there (as well as on my blog if you cared to know), because I want it to be full of pictures and memories that I can just look back on afterwards. I'm getting really pumped about it now! I'm going on vacation in Portugal in February so I'm expecting to post some photos I'll snap over there, get excited :)

As for my Pinterest, I am WAY more obessessed about and active on. I really love this concept of creating boards and pinning different pictures/pins on them. I have 42 boards about everything girly: I pin anything from pics of bands, to food, to shoes, to cute animals, to quotes and many many more. I absolutely love Pinterest as it gives you SO much inspiration and ideas for anything and then you feel so inspired and ready to do/create stuff. I think it's definitely one of those places you can get lost in when you're feeling down or just uninspired. If you haven't made yourself a Pinterest account already, then go make one now: it's pretty useful, i swear! I love it at least.

So of course, you can follow me on Instagram and Pinterest both @cecilel98

Have a nice week-end loves :))

First Lush Buy: Review

As told in my "First Lush Impressions" blogpost, the first time I went to Lush I purchased: Cosmic Girl and Candy Mountain. I chose these two bath bombs for their scent, as I found them very pleasing.

Cosmic Girl (also known as Space Girl) is very appealling and smells very nice with its fruity scent. I find it smells like blackcurrent or lilac. Apparently, it has grapefruit, bergamot and almond oil which makes it smell very sweet. It's also shaped as Saturn, which is quite cool if you ask me. The blue color covers the red (although mine got a little uncovered) and it also has a little red glitter in it. I've crumbled half of it under the tap the first time i've used it, and it leaves the water with a light reddish color, but glitter-free.

I can already tell Candy Mountain is going to be one of my favorites, just by the smell and look of it. It's absolutely gorgeous and so girly. The shape reminds me of a Hershey Kiss, except it's pink. As you can see it's white and pink and the two colors swirl around together. There's also a pink glimmer to it. As for the scent, I absolutely love it! It smells like vanilla but not the overwhelming kind of vanilla, more like a sweet and light vanilla.  Allthough it claims to, I didnt find it leaving the water all pink- nor pink at all (maybe i didnt use enough, i'll try again!)

Christmas Room Decor 2014


Yes, I am aware that we are now in January but I still wanted to take pictures of my Christmas   decorations before taking them down. Christmas, being my favorite holiday by far, is finally the time to deck out your room, bring in the Christmas tree, and hang up pretty garlands. Each year I find myself buying even more Christmas decoration for my room, adding up to what I already have. Here is how I decorated my room in December 2014 and how it turned out. It's a pretty simple decor but maybe you'll get some inspiration for next year?! I'm pretty nostalgic that Christmas is already over. It went by so fast, but I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and a happy new year, surrounded by their family and loved ones. Because I know I sure did! 

 Happy Holidays and Happy 2015 xxx
