If you're lacking motivation today, read these five quotes, use them to change your way of thinking and improve your quality of life. Your thinking is the only thing you can control and it determines what will happen to you, so let's cheer to your productive day ahead and be successful!

My Etsy discoveries

Etsy is no longer a newcomer on the market, however I never took the time to place an order. It was only during Christmas I decided to give it a try - I bought a few of my presents there and it was a perfect shopping experience! What I love about the website is not only that most of the items are handmade, but also that they have unique pieces. The other night I was browsing through tons of pages, categories and shops and here is the selection I'm coming with. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I can't buy them all but some will definitely end up in my cart! What about you - is something catching your eye?


FOR THE HOME DECORATORS

Probably my favourite shop out of all the website! Shannybeebo makes unique wall clocks with amazing designs and all of them are made with recycled items. I'm pretty sure everybody would be able to find their happiness in this shop.




FOR THE FASHIONISTAS

Etsy is a niche for anything creative. If you're looking for something unique, you'll love MeDusa's bags. Entirely made using pvc, the bags have all sorts of designs, shapes and colours. It is so innovative and I'm sure they'll look amazing with any outfit, don't you agree?




FOR THE CAT LADIES

I'm a cat lady, you know that. Whenever I see something with cats, I can't resist - that's the rule. I'm actually proud of myself because my wallet survived this selection. Back to this lovely cross body bag from Hopnbounce : this shop makes cute bags, phone cases, pouches and prints with adorable animals. I've given a shiba inu pouch to my sister and the quality was great. Should I purchase the cat one for myself?

How to keep wearing your t-shirt during winter?

The first snow means winter is definitely here and even though the weather is becoming quite cold, I still want to keep wearing my t-shirts. The one I'm wearing today is from H&M - I found it in store a few months ago. The material is thick enough to be worn during winter, but it doesn't look that great when tons of jackets or coats are layered on top of it. Then I remembered a trend I loved when I was younger : wearing a long-sleeved top underneath a t-shirt. Why not try it again? Here is my look! If you want to see another way I styled this t-shirt : click here. Who else is doing the long-sleeved top & t-shirt combo?

5 ways to reach your goals

New Year is synonym of new you. In January, we decide to get our life together and make up our mind to stay on track. However as the months go, we tend to forget our passion and loose motivation : this shouldn't happen this year! I know you have enough will and power to achieve your incredible dreams. That's the reason why I'm sharing these few tips on how to keep focus on your goals and how to reach them!


"Success comes to those who dare to begin."


WRITE THEM DOWN
We often get confused when it comes to accomplishing goals. To ease our minds, we first need a strong foundation. To build it, my advice is to write down all of your goals. Not only by writing you're more likely to achieve them, but it's also a great reminder to stay focus each time you're feeling down. Take a notebook and keep it by your side : bring down onto the page all of your thoughts and ideas, whenever something inspires you or whatever you want to accomplish. You'll have a clearer view of what you'd like to achieve throughout the year and it'll be much easier to walk in the right direction.

BE SPECIFIC
Big goals can be scary and achieving them is a long journey where we can get lost numerous of times. In order to make your goals much more attainable, break them into smaller ones and be specific. What do I mean by "being specific"? It's all about numbers and facts. You should use thresholds in order to figure out if you're improving or not. Let me give you an example : your professional goal for the year is to grow your blog - then your first threshold would be to reach one thousand visits at the end of the month. As time goes, you'll have a clear picture of your progress and you'll know in which area you need to do better.

DO NOT GIVE UP
Your will is important. If you want it bad enough, things will eventually come your way. Be consistent and never give up! Keep going no matter what - even if things don't work out, you'll have learned something along the way for sure! Besides, whenever you're feeling down, look at what you've done so far and remember that it would be a shame if you stopped now. Go out of your comfort zone and stay focused... don't be afraid of failures - they are a sign of progress.


"Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs."
Farrah Gray


BE FEARLESS
Don't let the opinion of others lead your life : you only have one and you've got to make it worth it. Achieve what you'd like to achieve and do not care about what other people might think. “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be somebody who hates peaches”. Share your passion with other enthusiasts and enjoy every step of your new adventure.

REEVALUATE
People change and so do you. Keep doing this exercise of writing your goals, dreams, to-dos or things you'd like to experience over the months. You'll see that throughout the year, your goals might have changed, maybe a lot! That's perfectly fine! You were strong enough to start somewhere and it evolved the right way.

Be ready to make 2017 even better than last year - you now have all the tools and advice to rock it! Be successful and empower people around you : because you're the best and I believe in you!

Airport look

Whenever I'm travelling by plane, all I ask for is to be comfortable. I need to feel as if I'm at home in my cosy joggings - warm and snuggly. Of course, I could simply go in pyjamas and carry my blanket around, but as a fashion lover... it won't do! My ultimate tip is to wear leggings paired with an oversize sweater. Oversize is really trendy right now so take it to your advantage. Add a big scarf, your favourite coat, your pair of sneakers and you'll be ready to discover the world!
