NYE: Nails ✴

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and I suppose everyone is getting all fancy to party till dawn! I figured that I couldn't do any outfit suggestions because I'm still too young to go to classy parties and couldn't do any makeup/hair suggestions either, since I do not own any party-ish products. So, I found myself falling back into the nail art section (which isn't a bad thing)! 

1. Strike !


My first manicure is quite easy but nevertheless cool. For this one, I did my normal two layers of hot pink nail polish. I let it dry, cleaned the edges as per usual and added my final touch: the silver strike. To get the look of this manicure correctly, don't try making a flawless line! I took a q-tip, cut one of the ends into a pointy end, dipped it into my nail polish (like a pen in ink) and starting drawing my line. And here's your result! I really love this silver nail polish by Ciate; it's super flashy and fun.

2. Snowfall


This one's very wintery and sparkly. I chose this light blue and chunky glitter nail polish to give my manicure a touch of frostiness. It's very simple, too. Apply two layers of light blue nail polish and add, as a top coat, a layer of glitter nail polish. To put it on correctly, use the "dab, dab, and glide" technique. Tada!

3. Firecracker


I must admit, that this one is a little harder than the previous suggestions and a bit more time-consuming. It looks like the Snowfall manicure, but there's a little twist to it. First of all, do the normal single coat of light blue nail polish on both hands. As you do your second layer, do all your fingers except the one where you want the powder of sparkle to go. Do the second coat on the chosen finger let settle just a bit (a few seconds will do) and pour your powder onto it. Blow gently to let the powder incrust itself into the nail polish and also spread out onto other fingers. The sparkles will be concentrated on one finger and let the others shimmer a littler; it gives it this velvety touch and firecracker effect.

4. Sequin 


The colours of this manicure remind be the 1920's. This one is without a doubt the hardest manicure out of the four to make. Like before, start with the first coat of nail polish, add a second coat only on the fingers where you will not be applying any chunks of glitter, apply your glitter on the fresh coat of nail polish. And be careful to sprinkle it at approximately one centimetre above your nail without making any clumps of glitter. Don't touch anything. Just blow gently like before. Then, when your nail polish is pretty much dry, do your best to get rid of the useless chunks who have stuck on. Wash your hands and your manicure is finito!

✴ ✴ ✴

So there are my nail art suggestions! 
As a conclusion to this wonderful year, I hope 2013 was a great year for all of you. I'd like to thank everyone that follows, reads, and comments on my blog. I know it's a small 'business' but I still wanted to show my gratitude. I wish health and joy to everyone for 2014! Happy (early) New Year!

SEVENTEEN !

Merry Christmas, honeys!
Can't take a normal pose, sorry 
These are some of the latest products I got. I discovered Seventeen a week ago and was very pleased by their products. I went back, just before Christmas, at Boots to get the Christmas deal! {Boots had pretty cool ones} If you spent at least £8 on Seventeen, you'd get an eyebrow kit for free. 


I went, firstly, for a liquid eyeliner. It was time I upgrade my makeup gear, since I was still using a pen eyeliner. I quite like this one. It's easy to apply, it dries super quickly. There's not much negative to say about this eyeliner. The only thing is that you must dip your tip back into the ink frequently or else half of the line on your eye will be pitch black and the other grey-ish.  


Ever since I took off my braces (YAY!), I've been looking for a lipstick. And, there, I snatched the opportunity. But I wanted my first lipstick to be quite natural. I wanted it to be peachy or delicately pink. I found this perfectly peachy one resembling a lipstick I had seen on Rita Ora. A split second later, it joined my liquid eyeliner. I've tried it once so far and was very pleased with it. I think I'll be pairing it up a lot with my Rimmel Mascara. 


As the two products added up to £8 (a little more ^^), I got my eyebrow kit. First of all, the packaging was uber pretty. Inside the kit, there is a little mirror, a brush, 1 wax compartment, 1 setting powder, 1 highlighter, and, finally, a brow pencil. I've tried it a little but first I have to go see a brow specialist (don't know what they are called exactly). My eyebrows are quite bushy. And obviously, it couldn't be the pretty way (aka Cara Delevingne's eyebrows). Anyway, I might write a more detailed review when my eyebrows will be beautiful and have an actual shape.

Winter Favourites! ☃


I'm back on vacation! I think I'll be blogging daily... I'll try my best! So, this week for BritishBloggerSelection, I will be talking about my winter favourites!

1. Gingerbread Topshop Jumper


This is without a doubt the most wintery clothing I own. It is one of my personal favourites and I find it absolutely adorable! It gets you right into the Christmas Spirit and that's always a little plus for a winter selection  It's also very comfy and great quality so you'll might see me wearing this every Christmas season for the next few decades.

2. 'Em Winter Socks


I have no idea where I got these. I think it was one of those random present you get when your relatives have no clue what to give you. I love these winter socks because they're not too thick so I can also wear them with my shoes (really thick socks just make my feet suffocate in my boots). I don't really know why; I just really like this item!

3. Ciate Winter Manicure


This is a sneak peak to an upcoming post (which also explains why the picture is blurred). Here is one of my recent manicures that I did with the nail polishes I got in the Ciate Calendar. I have a little weakness for a blue coat of nail polish topped with glitter. It adds a frostiness and a little magic to the manicure!
My Snow Globe nail polish is really elegant, too, but very discrete and taking a picture of it wasn't very interesting.

4. My Super Scarf


It's super long, it's super soft hence the name: Super Scarf! Anyways, I really love the scarves from Urban Outfitters' latest collection. I have to admit, they're a little expensive... I was surprised to see that there wasn't any angora or cashmere! I think it definitely deserves to be a winter favourite since it keeps me very warm. And I appreciate that very much.

5. My Homies Beanie


My beanie protects me from the cold, too! I love this beanie because it's just the right size. I'm sorry to all of the people who like larger one, but I absolutely hate those. It can suite some people, but it's very rare when it does. I feel like long ones make your head shaped like a balloon..

P.S.: This sixth item isn't really a winter favourite since I wear it at any time in the year: La Vie Est Belle. It smells like candy and it's the perfect scent for these holidays!

✧ Flash of Red ✧


I have a little weakness for black and white outfits and suddenly - BOOM - out of nowhere, a colour joins in to add some attitude to the ensemble. This colour doesn't have to be too obvious... For example, I tried this look out with my new Whistle jumper (which I'll come back to in a moment), my black Jamie pair of jeans, my UO sneakers and my Ciate "Boudoir" nail polish.

Jumper - Whistle
I got this jumper a few weeks ago. I thought it was going to be one of those jumpers that get all itchy after a few washes but to my surprise it isn't! This is one of my favourite tops at the moment. It's great quality and super soft (weirdly it has no cashmere or angora in it..). Plus, it's literally windproof (if that's even a word). Let me elaborate that point: Say you're walking down the street and the wind blowing, all icy and stuff; You won't feel a thing. It will completely protect you! So, if you're looking for a fluffy jumper like this, pop into Whistle and have a look!

Boudoir - Ciate
Secondly, as you know from my previous post, I got the cutest Ciate advent calendar. And this flashy (but very christmasy) red nail polish was the second of December's surprise. I think this nail polish really requires two coats to give it the fullest of its brightness. I would have added a vertical black line to give it a Louboutin-ish look but I didn't have time for that.

Ciate Surprise! ❄

The calendar 
Who's excited for December? I am, especially with this awesome deal I found. It's a £42 (instead of £119) nail polish calendar! Eek! I'm so psyched! Sorry for my excessive amount of exclamation marks but you must understand my excitement. Christmas dweeb.

Snow Globe - Ciate
Today, for the first of December, I received "Snow Globe". This one is very soft. It's pretty much nail varnish with specks of glitter. I really like how discrete it is AND how quick it was to put on! It took me about three minutes. 


Piccadilly - Awesome Snow Globe!

Smile & Wave

"Smile and wave, boys!"
This was a few weeks ago. Perhaps one week before the huge storm that hit London and Brighton. Around that time. It was super cold and I was sick but I still accepted going out there. So here I am, with the biggest grin on my face, but secretly dying inside. I thought that the perfect match with Brighton's crazed sea was a marine sweater. And so I wore mine out. I still regret not putting another layer under it or over! Shiver me timbers! 

Jumper: Petit Bateau
Anyways, Brighton turned out to be lovely (as it always has been) since we  took refuge in the huge arcade. We also stopped at this cute restaurant called Plateau and I took this picture which you might have seen on my Instagram!

Paris // Blur


Last weekend, I stayed in Paris. And let me tell you something: Time flies! Slips away too quickly even & often. This weekend was almost a blur (hence the title). The weather was very rainy and windy, which is literally the worst thing ever. Luckily I managed to snap a few pictures of my new grey Uniqlo jumper during the two minutes of 'sunshine'. The jumper seems very thin and light but as all Uniqlo clothing, it keeps you warm. Don't ask me how... I ignore the science of this jumper. I'm pretty sure if I do a research about it, it will get me very confuzzled!  


Anyways, even under the gloomy sky, Paris was a pleasant city to visit - especially with all its crêperies! ^^ Its beauty stays unique. Love it.

"My Moisturiser" Review

Le Petit Olivier

Lately, my skin has become a little flaky because of my severe acne treatments. Since winter is just around the block, which means that my skin will be getting even more dry, I thought I'd make a post about the best moisturising cream I've found, yet. 
"Enjoying the original benefits of the Earth’s natural gifts while respecting our human, animal and plant environment" – we don’t simply say that because we want to be trendy, we actually do it because it’s what we believe in.  
The name of the brand is Le Petit Olivier. It's not very famous but they try to stay as environmental-friendly as possible and end up with high quality and effective results. They are also against animal testing, which is another positive thing about them. What I love about this particular product is its smell. A very soft, thick scent. I like to put some by just applying a pea-sized amount on the driest parts of my face, every morning. Sometimes, I also do it before going to bed. It makes your skin instantly less dry and stretched out without making it all greasy. The flakiest parts stay somewhat a little dry compared to the rest, but the skin is certainly more relaxed after the application. 

This cream is based on Shea butter, which keeps your skin looking supple, smooth, and healthy. But it won't get rid of any visible stretch marks, it will just prevent you from getting any future ones and reduce the visibility of the actual ones! So, basically, Shea butter is a little wonder and will help you a lot if you have dry skin.

In all, I definitely recommend this product. I give it five stars out of five, 100%, 20/20! Absolutely love it.

Old Sport ✔


So lastly, I've been to New Forest. My dear parents literally dragged me out of the house and made me walk with them on these humongousourus promenades. I shouldn't be complaining; They were quite lovely. 

I decided to go for a sporty look since we were going to walk for a couple of hours; I needed something comfy. For example, the Sweaty Betty leggings and the "I Hate Everyone" oversized tee from Topshop! [Don't worry, I don't actually 'hate everyone'] I don't own a pair of hiking shoes so I just had to take what I had: an old pair of sneakers (so try to imaginatively replace them by Nike Airwaves or Adidas). 

So, there! That's my latest adventure.

Artsy ✌

Mine's the one at the very top 
3 weeks! Or 4... Sorry about that. But no worries: I'll make an effort. I'm on vacation now so that means I'll be spending more time on my computer. Just kidding; I'll obviously be outside running after butterflies! Or not. The weather will decide.

So last year, I participated in this art contest and my work was accepted. It was displayed, later, in this exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art. So, I proudly went and chose a lovely outfit that I could, then, share with you. The top part is only seen on purpose, because it's the newest things in my closet and most important part of my outfit. The rest is some déjà-vu. Both the collar and the knitted sweater are from Topshop. Their autumn collection was absolutely wonderful! I've got other new things from there waiting for their time to shine in a future post. I'll try making posts with more interesting settings. Pinky swear it!

I may seem a little depressed on the picture, but that's just my after-school face (and I also felt awkward standing there alone posing for a picture).

Made In Chelsea Style!


 Yesterday, I was having lunch near my school, and what do I see? The Made In Chelsea cast! Now, honestly, I don't watch this show but each time I see the adverts I find myself drooling over their outfits! A very chic street style. 

On Polyvore
 Well, I got the chance to see them in real life and it got me very inspired for this post. 
{From left to right on the picture completely above}
- Lucy Watson: She looks like a top model in an advert for DKNY in my shot! Her outfit is my favourite. To get the look, you need a leopard-printed blouse, a pair of black cloth shorts, very opaque tights, and the very fashionable black ankle chunky-heeled boots! Then over this beautiful ensemble add a long classy coat. Any colour will do!
- Millie Mackintosh: You can barely see her in the picture but she was wearing a white turtle neck with a blazer, slim black skirt, opaque tights, too, and quite elegant ankle boots. Her bag caught my eye. It was one of those very nice Celine bags.
- Louise Thompson: I thought her outfit was very interesting. She was wearing a black turtle neck pullover over an abstract dress. She, too, had the opaque tights (start of a new trend?). Her black ankle boots are very grungy, though. And, of course the unique Dior bag! I love her choice of colours. They work so well together.

T̶h̶e̶ ̶R̶e̶t̶u̶r̶n̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶T̶h̶e̶ ̶S̶t̶r̶i̶p̶e̶s̶


 It all started with Robin Thicke's classic striped suit and Kate Middleton's casual navy sweater. After these two went out wearing those garments, an army of striped people came tumbling into the streets. Many of whom had grabbed their old striped-up top, from the huge trend that had taken place three years ago. And I am one of those little people except I thought my stripes were quite different... My top is almost knitted-like! I love wearing this for chilly days, because you just need a tank top under (I have one of those Uni-Qlo tank tops for winter) and it's very light. And if the day really gets cold, add on a jumper! You don't see much in details how it looks like... It's pretty much a knitted, striped T-shirt! I think this quite an original design from Topshop.

The Lipstick Trend ✍

At the New York Fashion Week, this one makeup trend stood out from the others. The theme being: keep the eye naked but the lips highly pigmented! I loved it. It's such a fresh look and it's so simple! My two favourites were the following:

1) Make it POP!


This trend's been used so many times before: You must've seen with Rita Ora's classic ruby lipstick. It's been used by Alexa Chung, too, who says that this is a perfect technique to hide your sleepy eyes. The novelty, as said before, is to keep the rest of your face neutral. Your eyes have to be literally naked. I think the best in this category was Diane von Furstenberg with Cara Delevingne. She [Cara] was also rocking this look with other brands such as Marc Jacobs.

2) Wine Coloured Lips 


This one's so soft and velvety. This trend appeared a tiny bit in 2012 but didn't seem as big as this year. Dark lipstick doesn't suit me much anyway and I honestly wouldn't be brave enough to try it out but it's nevertheless a nice look. I couldn't find which brand was doing the makeup in the picture above for the fall/winter 2013 Fashion Week, though (maybe Derek Lam). 
Vera Wang went for a similar dark-lipped-models style, too, except in a redder version. The theme? Vampires. Reminds me of Twilight. ^^
So which trend do you prefer? What do you think about this trend? Would you take a shot at it? 
I must say that my real coup de coeur was the 'make it POP' one... 
- S.

P.S.: I must inform you that this blog will be weekly from now on because I am going back to school! Wish me luck!

♓ The Little Mermaid Shade ♓

This summer was full of discoveries in the beauty section: Yves Rocher and its effective products, DISCOVERIES post, and, now, Kiko. Kiko is great not only in quality but also price; Each nail polish I bought was only 2.50€! It has great colours especially when it comes to the shimmering effect...

The picture is not great quality (iPhone) but this Instagram effect makes it look like a watercolour painting
This one is the turquoise (if that makes sense). The type of turquoise where it's impossible to decide whether it's green or blue... I think it's perfect for the end of summer: It has a touch of fall but a dash of the two last hot months, too! Kiko doesn't give any names to their nail polishes (which I think is a shame) so I got inspired and decided I'd name it: The Little Mermaid Shade. It reminds so much of Ariel's tail... What can I say? I'm stuck in a nostalgic Disney world!
I really recommend this brand, though! It's excellent - but not as excellent as Topshop!

⚛ Dɪsᴄᴏᴠᴇʀɪᴇs ⚛

♫ "It's some kind of magic!" 
This week is going to be a "Nail Week". I've bought a few nail thingy-mobbobers to share them with you guys! 
This one is completely new to me and it is the 'star' of this post: The Maybelline Express Remover! It's like a magic box... I've been stuck with cotton and dissolver for ages and this just modernises my way of taking off nail polish! Yes, I am aware that I can be amazed by the smallest things but this one is truly incredible! The best part is that this dissolver doesn't leave a weird smell on your nails! 
Now in the picture, you may be wondering why there's a nail clipper. It's simply because I have a new obsession for these, too. It gives a neat cut and I even think it makes my nails stronger... Maybe that's just an impression...
So, there. These are my new obsessions of the week. If you've never heard of the Maybelline Express Remover, I strongly advise you to try it out!

Diagonal Rasta Manicure


 Let me explain my choice of colours before I ramble on about how to make this manicure. (Let's make it short.) My cousin and I were invited to this party where the theme was 'Hats'. We decided to go there with a Bob Marley inspired outfit: the rasta beanie and some kick-ass nails (hence the choice of colours)! The hat wasn't too interesting to talk about so I decided to prepare a tutorial so that you could give it a try (with different colours, of course. ;)). It's very easy, there is no need of tape! My cousin and I didn't feel like going for a very neat look. We thought it looked better "messy", in this case. 
 First you start with the dash of green in the left corner of your nail. It doesn't matter if you go onto your skin: you can wash it off later with some dissolver or (the parts that are impossible to get off with dissolver) with water. Do this on every finger. Once finished you can move over to the red, which will be in the right corner of your nail! Same process.
 The yellow line is the toughest part of the job! You have to be ultra-concentrated and, most important, do not tremble! Take just the right amount of nail polish on your brush and apply it onto your nail in one strike. The line has to be as straight as possible and it must cover all the 'empty part' on your nail. 
 Ta da! You're done! I'm not a fan of 'complicated' manicures like this one.. Simple ones will always be the best. But if you're seeking a fun style, one day, try this one out!

I Like That.

 This post is based on one of my favourite films: The Devil Wears Prada! Today, I'd like to just write about my favourite outfits and makeup sets in the film. Let's start with the outfits!

Outfits:

 The first one is seen quickly at the very beginning (couldn't find a picture of it). It's a classic. A remodernized 1950's outfit. A huge coat with only stilettos sticking out. It doesn't sound very glamorous put that way, but trust me I've seen this so many times and  I've never ceased loving it. Obviously in the film they didn't put a beanie on the actress, I just added it to make it less chic and more street style - my personal touch! I also assembled clothes that I've seen before and that I adore but I cannot afford (story of my little tragic life ;) )... For example, the Miu Miu coat that costs 18000 €.


 The second one is a tad more famous. It's one of those Anne Hathaway outfits. I've recently became obsessed with it! The ingredients: Short dress, long fennel necked coat/ trench coat, tights, knee high boots, a tote bag, and an abundant amount of Chanel necklaces! I picked mainly grey clothes for this outfit but Anne Hathaway's is more into the brown and dark purple fabrics. I really really REALLY like this ensemble. I'd say it's my absolute favourite even! It makes your legs seem longer and it's so... There are no words good enough to describe it! (Exaggeration?) In my inspirational outfit I took once more garments that were pricey and obviously beyond, way beyond my budget.

Makeup:

 There is only one person in this film that has caught my eye for this category [makeup]. If I wore as much makeup as she did during this tournage, I'm pretty sure I'd end up looking like a fool. But, instead, she pulls it off: She looks amazing! It made her eyes pop out in a positive way..! Bellissima! I chose this picture to illustrate what I meant (this is also one of my favourite parts in the film):

Chamomile Facial Scrub + Bamboo Grains

Scrub: Gommage Douceur aux Grains de Bambou
 Not long ago, my friend advised me to test out a few Yves Rocher products (indeed, today, I shall mention only one but I have another one waiting *intense suspense*). So as you can deduct I decided to trust her and try it out AND write a post about it. I am happy I did test it out, though! 
 This review will be split into two groups: the good stuff about this scrub and the bad (so much vocabulary right there).
 Positive (+): I've always had a weak spot for scrubs with grains! I find them magical. And this one is magical. After rubbbing and massaging the Chamomile gel with bamboo grains onto my face, rinsing it abundantly with warm water, and drying it up with a freshly clean towel, my skin turned out to be super smooth and soft. I'm not saying all my acne vanished in a split second but it did give my skin a healthy boost! Second thing I like about this product is its sweet smell... And last but not least, is its reasonable price!
 Negative (-): It's not filled up to the top. I am not saying I bought it when it was half full but there was still space for more in there! Things like this always make me a tiny winsy bit disappointed. My second point isn't that bad... it's just that you can only use Yve Rocher's Chamomile Facial Scrub once or twice per week! When I have a lovely, fresh product like this I want to be able to use it everyday! But I'm guessing I'm being a bit too overly obsessed there...

✩ Elephants & Jewelry ✩

In a previous post, I mentioned my (little) obsession for elephants. This obsession has appeared throughout my jewelry. I admit, I don't have millions of elephants BUT these two are new buys and I'm pretty sure it's a good start.


The first one is a bead for my bracelet. It looks like it comes from Pandora but it's actually from Trollbeads (cheaper).


The second one is a pendant that I found in Cultura (a huge french shop for artistic activities). Reason I bought it immediately? It looks like the elephant on the Urban Outfitters tee (in my mini autumn wishlist).
Sorry for the short post! I promise that the next one will be longer... Not super long; I'm not that talkative! ^^

La Vie Est Belle



 Yes, I know this perfume came out ages ago but I finally got it! Eek! I've been dreaming about this one for months and it's finally here, in my hands. I am a fan of Lancôme perfume. My precedent perfume Trésor In Love.
 If you're hesitating on getting La Vie Est Belle, you're right. I admit: I thought it was a very daring and strong perfume to wear, but I've never really liked faint ones (I find them a bit boring). When I qualify this perfume as strong I mean it's very strong, the type of strong that your nose can't get used to the odour easily. But then again I haven't had it for a long time, so I don't know exactly.
 The packaging is beautiful though. As for every perfume: It's neat, the flacon is kept elegant (the ribbon was even wrapped with plastic to preserve it's perfectness)... La vie est belle.

Mini Autumn Wishlist

 I didn't have time to check out all the websites of shops I love online, so I picked my two favourite; Where I was sure I could find plenty of beautiful things to create this wish list of mine... The two shops are Topshop and Urban Outfitters, of course! 
 I also wanted to share my obsession with Polyvore. If you look back into the earlier posts, I am using these montages everywhere. I think it's a great website ! And the result is such good quality! So if you don't have an account, I totally recommend it.

  1. Topshop Velvet Bow Hair Clip - It's so cute! It'd be a great accessory to have in your hair. I also adore the vintage-ish details in the middle!
  2. Vagabond Grace Nubuck Boots - These are so stylish and have that grunge style that I am loving these days! I've always wanted a pair so they were one of the first items I added to this wish list. 
  3. Topshop Knitted Angora Cable Jumper - I like the patterns in there. And its' soft colour is so uncommon for autumn but it pleases me, too.
  4. Title Unknown Crop Top in Elephant Print - Everyone wants a particular t-shirt time to time... well I want this one! This year, I haven't found any crop top that stuck to my taste... But this one seems awesome! Plus, I love elephants.
  5. Cooperative High-Waisted Shorts in Check Print - This isn't the sort of shorts I'd go for normally. But I like the looks of it, the length, the colour, the shape... Basically everything!

So that's it! Those are my five fav' items on both websites. I might make another wish list for beauty products only...

What's in my bag?

The bag in the picture isn't mine but it resembles a lot!
 Today, I was emptying my bag (that I love so much) and I told myself, "Why not write a post about this?" I admit; This might be a short post and it may not have much to do with beauty because I hate wearing lots of makeup during summer - I feel like the makeup is going to melt on my face! But I still thought it would be a good post to share with you.
 Let's start from the top and go clockwise: 
  1. Vichy Skincare Oil - You've heard about this one from one of my earlier posts (My [Summer] Beauty Essentials)! I obviously have to have it with me 24/7! The sun is literally setting your skin on fire where I am! 
  2. Diana Mini - I always bring it with me even though I have a Nikon, too. I can never decide: The awesome HD one? Or the 1960's effect?
  3. Nikon D3100 - It has to be with me everywhere I go! Kind of like a daemon in the Golden Compass or is that too exaggerated?
  4. Mirror & Rimmel Mascara - This isn't exactly the same mascara I use. I have this waterproof one which is always great for summer. The only problem, though, is that it doesn't last super long so I need to have my little mirror to accompany it and add a new coat every once in a while. 
  5. The Catcher in the Rye - Just in case I get bored...

My July

Three days without one post? I'm such a bad blogger... Excusez-moi. 
I've got a pretty good excuse though: I've been sightseeing. A lot. Today's post is basically going to be a stack of pictures showing you how my July went. 

1. Graffiti Check Up





Before leaving London, I love going to Shoreditch to see all the new graffitis. So during my oh-so-boring last week there, I grabbed my camera and shot a few. I even found these really nice sketches glued to the walls.

2. Underwater 

Jimmy Newton Style

As you might know, my friends came over and one of them had this kick-ass camera that could go underwater!

3. O' Rocky Mountain




This is where I was in my last post! The views and colours were terrific, the weather got a little stormy...
*Mysterious effect*

4. Sur le Pont d'Avignon 



We weren't on the famous bridge though. Instead we did this little walk in the city. Moment agréable.
[Didn't take much pictures!^^]  

5. Caved Gallery
The title to this one must sound weird but there are these sort of caves, and inside you can go see these shows projecting famous oeuvres on the walls. You'll understand with the pictures...




6. Pont du Gard



And here I am under and on this quite well known bridge...

7. Next stop, Nîmes!




Next thing you know, I'm sitting in this arena where they still organise these bullfighting games... Well my journey comes to an end now and off we plunge into August.
Hope your July was good, too!
