Christmas is all about...

Friday, 26 December 2014












Hey guys!

I know this post is a day late because Christmas was yesterday but anyway 
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
but seriously though, why can't it be Christmas everyday?! Hahaha well if it's Christmas everyday it will probably  lose the special-ness-ish of it. We won't have that excitement and thrill when it comes to looking forward on that day. Also, no one have the time " everyday" to prepare fancy dinner, put up festive decorations (my favourite) and buying presents ( actually this is my favourite "more like receiving presents tbh") because lets get real everyone has their daily things like I don't know work, school, running errands or other stuff that take up their day.

I just want to share some few shots I took awhile ago of few of our Christmas decor that we put up. Getting all the feels. Festive feels, that is.  Also, maybe share my thoughts what Christmas is all about and why I love it so much. Can't imagine someone hating on Christmas to be honest. Like why? what? how? can't even?! NOT JUDGING THOUGH! Everyone have a reason to why that is.

For me Christmas is that one special day where we get to have a reason to gather our family together and share special meals, showing appreciation of each other by buying special presents that we think that person will absolutely love. Getting presents on Christmas for each member of our family  or our friends is so special because we pause for minute and to actually took time to think about that one special thing that best represents that person. It gives us the chance to think about that person, Which is the real meaning of Christmas...thinking about our special loved ones, friends and family. The value of your  present doesn't matter because what really matters is big or small, you took time to get that person a present and thought about them. It's the thought that counts.

I don't know if you've notice but nowadays we are all so caught up hanging with our friends, sometimes we would rather hang out with them than our family because... I don't know why to be honest. The sad part is  most of the time we don't really hang out with our friends but we are constantly on our phone, scrolling, refreshing all our social media accounts not really doing anything. That's just how this generation is. We are so detached from reality sometimes. I for one is guilty for that. So this brings me back to why Christmas day is so special because we get to spend some quality time with our family. We get to enjoy life offline (right after we update our facebook, twitter, instagram etc with "Merry Christmas" greetings) . From getting everything ready in putting up Christmas decors together to planning what to have for Christmas dinner and watching a movie. That one day where everything seems so chill not having to worry about anything but  just to enjoy a relaxing day with your family. Most people have their parents working full time everyday that by the time they get home its too late to even have dinner together. Christmas day is so special because we are given that time to just sit down, talk, have a laugh and maybe few arguments over silly things like who took the last slice of cake (not pudding) . I see Christmas day as a lazy stay in keeping it cozy day. 

Christmas is really all about having that one special day the world has set for us to celebrate and appreciate all the blessings that you've received with out special loved ones. Its about giving thanks for what the year has brought to us, the joys and heartaches all counts. Either you had a mega super big fancy celebration or just a simple one its pretty much the same it makes no difference if you enjoyed it together with your loved ones.  Christmas is a celebration of our Savior Jesus Christ's Birthday and by that we celebrate it by showing love and care to one another. 

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas with your loved ones!Let's not forget to not only show our love for them on Christmas day or any special occasions but remember to value our time with them everyday. 


Lots of Love,

HOW TO STYLE ♥ PLAID SHIRTS

Sunday, 2 November 2014

ALL ABOUT THAT PLAID.



OUTFIT #1

buttoned-up chic style. 





                   


  



         





OUTFIT #2

Ripped jeans, bandana and whatnot HIGH STREET style? COOL. 












OUTFIT #3

TIED-UP CASUAL STYLE.




Heya guys! 

How are you all? Hope you all had an amazing halloween either you  dress up and went out  with your friends to a party or  did some trick or treating with your little sister or brother, maybe just you that's cool too. No one's too old for sweets. OK. Maybe you decided to stay in and watched some classic Halloween movies, who wouldn't like that? I'm down for that but this year I  dressed up as "Gothic Pocahontas" and went out with my bestfriends but I think I  looked more of a hippie/boho I dont even know. 

Anyway for this blog post I decided to show you how I style my Plaid shirt. There are like so many ways to style it right? but this is just the 3 look that I absolutely love. I'm literally obsessed with   this gorgeous navy and red plaid shirt  from Forever21 for 12 euro only  guys . It is super comfy and dark tones are my favourite.  Also the shoes that I paired with all 3 outfits are definitely my favorite shoes right now. I purchased it from the lovely Penneys for 20 euro (I think) and it is worth it because it is affordable compared to the other stores which is super expensive plus it is super comfy! Been wearing them a lot recently because it goes with everything.  

I love all these 3 different style but I definitely go for outfit # 2 most of the time because why not? Just kidding because I love anything that I pair with this super amazing on trend ripped peekaboo knee jeans which I've been wearing a lot aswell recently. Let me know if you LOVE plaids like me which style is your favorite out of the 3 or show me how you style a plaid shirt? Feel free to tag me in your instagram pictures or share your blog name or your blog page in the comments section below, I would definitely love to see them. 

(Thank you to my friend who took these shots and guess what she owns a blog too so check it out click this link  right here >>> thechocolatetherapy )

Love you and have a lovely day ♥ 

Lots of love,

BETHANY MOTA ♥ FRAGRANCE

Thursday, 9 October 2014










     





                           



Heya!

I recently received uhm I don't know probably the best birthday present ever! It's the Bethany Mota Fragrance. WHAT?! Thank you so much to my bestest friend who knows me too well! If you're following me on twitter or Instagram well you probably know already that I'm a fan of hers. She's the coolest and like oh my goodness have you seen her on Dancing with the stars?!Also she's releasing a new single this coming Monday. This lady slays. Well I can fangirl all day and night  but I should probably tell you what I think of her fragrance now.

PACKAGING

Aztec Box & Lid/ Charms/ Bow/Heart-shaped bottle 

♥  I love how she chose the Aztec print. Also, the color combination that Bethany chose was definitely perfect because Gold and this shade of Blue worked together. It's definitely not hard to spot it right away when you're in a shop. It's that design and style that when you see it you will have to look at it again. Aztec is one of the most popular prints that people are in-love including myself of course. 

♥  Again sticking with the theme from the design of the amazing Aztec gold and blue box ,its lid or the cover of the perfume was the same.

♥ I absolutely adore the bow that was added to the lid because it inspired some girly effect on it. Also as we all "Motavators" know already ... Bethany love her bows. #BowsbeforeBros #yo

 Those Charms Though! Oh yes those charms which includes a crescent, her heart shape logo and a plate where her name was imprinted is definitely my favourite! It made the perfume very personal especially for her "besties" "viewers" "fans". It's like a present for all of us. 

♥  The bottle is of course in a heart-shaped.  Again it goes with the overall theme and design of the fragrance. I  love how there's an "xoxo beth" signature in it. TOO CUTE! Plus! there is that gold shimmer at the bottom of the the bottle making it super fancy. So fancy.

♥  Who doesn't love a little discount? Well here as you can see from one  of the photos above that she also have a cute scratch card where if you're lucky, you'll get some cool promos and discounts.  Awesome.


SCENT

♥  PERFECTION! The scent of this fragrance is hands down an absolute perfection!It's sweet which I like but not too sweet. If you know what I mean. I've been searching for that perfect scent that I want and love and the minute I open and smelled it, I just fell in-love with it. It's for those people who are into mild sweet and girly scent. I guess I'm one of those people. 

♥ Stays all day.You only need to spray it  once and you're good for the day. I feel like when I wear this scent I am ready and hyped to face the day with a bright smile because... hello? I am wearing Bethany Mota's fragrance. We are twinning . If that doesn't make you smile I don't know where I'm going with this but I guess you get my point. 

Anyway to sum up this I don't know if you can even call this a review of her fragrance but what I'm going to say is it is the definition of PERFECTION. You can definitely tell that every single detail about this fragrance was carefully chosen and thought  about. On point from inside and outside. I suggest to definitely if you love collecting different fragrance/ perfume to pick this one up. It's worth it. 

If someone asks me who inspired me to do and bother making this little blog I would say Bethany Mota. Watching her videos this year literally inspired and encouraged me that we all have that freedom to do and say whatever it is that we want. We don't need someone's approval. Doing what you love and your passion is the most important thing. It's what we call "living". She is such an inspiration to everyone and seeing her in the spotlight and living her dreams makes me so happy and proud. Her confidence is honestly contagious, it's like she sprinkles each one of us of that happy and positive outlook in life that she have. She "motavates" us all to work hard if we want to achieve our dreams and goals in life. 
Ok guys, my fangirling stops here...for now anyway. *wink*

Lots of love and kisses,

Camille ♥

Quotes of the month ♥ September

Sunday, 5 October 2014








 



 














Heya! 

Oh heya! Guess who's back from the world of inconsistency. Right, well I guess that would be me guys. Been so busy lately since College started. There's a lot going on with my life right now and it 's stressing me out a little bit. Everyone have their own dilemma's in life to deal with right? Some things just get a little too much but you know what...

I  want to share to you some of the quotes that helps me cope when I find myself in stressful times.I may have went overboard because I have a lot of it. It never fails (ALL THE TIME ) to slap me in the face and remind me that "girl suck it up and work hard" if you want something out of this life. Complaining and stressing out will take you nowhere. You're wasting time for stressing out that you don't have enough time for anything. Sacrifices has to be done sometimes.

Anyway ,even though it may almost feel like you're about to give up and you just want to stop trying...you know deep down all you need is a 5 minutes break  to contemplate life and appreciate that you still have that reason to get up in the morning. Often times we forget that all these challenges that comes in our way are the ones that helps us to focus in achieving our goals in life. Life would be pretty boring if everything is just handed to us right? there's no such thing as an "easy way" to everything. It takes time and hard work. TIME AND HARD WORK AND GETTING UP IN THE MORNING. 

I hope if you're stressing and or you just don't know where you're at , at this stage in this silly world that these quotes and little blog post  will help and give you a bit of a new perspective in life. Together we will beat these challenges girl!We will slay together. Let's all wake up in the morning and be thankful for  all the good things that we have right now. Even if that good thing is just  because you're still  alive and kicking or you didn't have to wait for your late bus or  if you're lucky Harry styles finally put up a selfie on our instagram feed . Embrace and wear that positive vibe all day. #WECANEVEN #BAAM 

Lots of Love, 
Camille xoxo
