Hello there! Sorry for being away for more than a week now! The past two weeks have been epic! Basically, I am finishing university tomorrow (no more classes, but and internship and reports to finish), so for the past 14 days I had a crazy amount of exams and presentations and 4 to 5 hours of sleep at night (my skin really loved it). But today I finally had my two last presentations! Tomorrow is the last day of class, and it's bitter sweet in a way, I've spend 5 years of my life in this university, but this year has been special, because of the lovely classmates and the intense amount of work. Got some tensions but in the end lot of laugh and love. It's hard to leave them, but we're all ready to write a new chapter of our lives I guess. Anyway, to restart I decided to reply to some questions that the lovely Alice asked me in the Liebstar Award. I don't have time to pick any of you tonight, but feel free to reply to these questions and link your blog in the comments!
1 - WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK AND WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTHOR?
My favourite book is definelty Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami who is by the way my favourite author. He is japanese and has such an incredible style. I think it's the kind of author that you either really like or totally hate, but I am just completely in love with so many of his books. About Norwegian Wood, I don't want to give you any spoilers but it's a love story between two students, it's kinda hard to explain but it's super poignant and the end guys... just read it until the end. It was just the kind of book, that it's 3AM, have class the next day, but don't care at all because you just can't stop to read it! And I'm so happy to finally have some time for myself to read Murakami new book, and maybe read this one once again.
2 - AN OLD SONG YOU LOVE?
Depends on what's old means here. If it's childhood like old, I would have to say any 2000's Britney Spears song. Stronger, Overprotected? I mean, Crossroads use to be one of my favorite films. Just remind me the girly sleepover at my best friends house. I would have to pick a few Destiny's Child one too. The Beyonce addiction started quite young actually.
3 - WHEN DID YOU START BLOGGING ? WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START?
I'll talk about my more adult blog, because no one care about the old and useless blogs I had when I was a high school student right? So fashion fixes hearts is my first grown up blog. I first started it in 2012, because I was reading a lot of other beauty and fashion blog and felt like I wanted to have my own space to talk about what I liked! But then come the master degree and its crazy amount of work. As my formation has always been super important to me, I decided to stop blogging for a while, because I like to do things a 100% or not at all. But now that I finally have time, I'm starting again and I hope I can give you some good content!
4 - WHAT IS THE FIRST BLOG YOU STARTED READING?
Fashion Toast. I remember how obsessed I was with Rumi style back in 2008! (still obsessed by the way, I think she's one of the blogger with the strongest style identity)
5 - PET PEEVES?
Bad-mannered children and people and general. I can't stand children who are crying to get stuff in shops or talking rude to their parents or strangers. Noisy children in general, in closed space, like buses or planes. Oh and girls who act overlly cute, like ... da girl can you just stop that?
6 - WHAT'S YOUR GO TO NAIL POLISH ?
I'm biting my nails for so long that I can't even reply to this! Let's say that when I'm having my gel manucure done, I usually go for a lovely nude or light pink color because I think it matches every outfit.
7 - WHAT'S YOUR BEST TRAVEL EXPERIENCE?
Tokyo, a 100%. I've been there five times but I can't pick just a single travel. They were all very special to me. I love this city and it really holds an important place in my heart, I feel like it became my second home. I love how it's big and tiny at the same time, I love japanese people, the way they act always so politely, their way of thinking, but also the food, culture and the amazing fashion sense of the population. I can litteraly stay two or three hours by myself in a coffee just staring at people when I'm there. I've met incredible persons, some of them being very good friends now. All of the people I met in Japan were nice, helpful, and respectful. For many people it might be just another big city, but I just think it's beautiful. I love Tokyo because it just add so much to my life. It gave me love and confidence.
8 - BEST AND WORST SCHOOL SUBJECTS?
I think that talking about "highschool type" subjects will be more relevant here. So ... math, math were the worst school subject EVER to me. I just can't understand it, and I never tried to. For the best, languages, english and spanish were by far my favourites.
9 - FAVOURITE LIPSTICK COLOUR?
How can you ask that to a lipstick junkie. Well I like to wear kind of rosy nude, or antique pink colors. If I had to pick one I would say the Rouge Volupte lipstick by YSL in Pink Paris. Or for a much more affordable option, the Revlon Matte Balm in Elusive. I'm almost out of mine and I'll definetly repurchased it!
10 - DREAM JOB?
I would love to work for a cosmetic company, in the marketing area if possible. But my real dream would be to work in a foreign country. I have interest for the United States, Canada or Asian countries such as Japan for example.
11 - FAVOURITE ONLINE SHOPPING WEBSITE?Sorry, I can't pick between my two absolute loves. Zara and Asos !
