Today I have a video for you, that is quite well rounded : it's the result of several inspirations I have been pondering on lately.
The first one is an easy one, or should I say circumstantial: we are in September... Shhh! I can hear you thinking: "thank you, Captain Obvious!"
Fair enough, it´s no ground breaking news or concept for that matter, but in my defence, September has really hit me hard this year! I'm kinda shocked that my birthday is already around the corner and my 39th at that! It´s my last year before hitting the big 40! How is that even possible? Oh well... 1st world problems!
The fact I mentioned the fact its September already is mainly because it means Fall/autumn is around the corner hence I wanted to try and incorporate fall in a look without forcing me to leave summer totally behind.
The second inspiration is my own makeup collection. I have an extensive collection compared to most people which is great when you love makeup as much as I do, but at the same time it inevitably means some items don't get as much attention as they deserve. So I have been doing a conscious effort to rekindle my love for palettes and products I don't often use.
Lastly but definitely not least, the last inspiration is a little idea I have been wanting to put into practice on my YouTube channel, which is to make a look with a different palette in each video. I have been calling it informally: 1 day, 1 palette, 1 look and I am kinda liking the idea! It actually ties in with my will to revisit my makeup stash too so I guess it´s a win!
So this time around we are playing with the Libertine Palette from Viseart.
Have a look at the video and if you want to know which products I used, I am also listen them below a spermatozoon usual!

Moleskine Dotted Journal
All his books to date : I mentioned The last of the Stanfields
It’s been a minute since I posted anything over here and there is no reason why that should be the case so we’re getting back into it!
I’ve never posted anything bullet journal related, but hey there is a first for everything, right?!
I have started to bullet journal at the end of last year and it has been a learning curve with a really fun and creative twist! Before you start thinking “oh dear! I can’t draw” here is a confession neither can I 🤣 I just have fun with it : there is no competition this is just for my own selfish enjoyment!
I am not religious about bullet journaling at all and some weeks, if I’m honest, the spreads go a bit to waste when it comes to planning but the whole idea of bullet journaling for me is that the journal adapts to me and not the other way around.
I wanted to have something that would allow me to be creative on a regular basis and bullet journaling was one of the things I tried out to see if it suited me. What I knew for a fact was that a regular agenda just didn’t work for me I ended up always wasting most of it and it wouldn’t inspire me due to the fact most of them where stuck in a certain style or theme.
Almost a year down the line, it turns out bullet journaling did work for me! It’s neutral and flexible enough for me to just do what I want when I want with it.
Some weeks I really focus on planning something and some other weeks I just fancy the drawing part of it which is totally ok!
I use a Moleskine dotted journal just because I am very attached to the brand (Van Gogh used them and since I am a kid I enjoy using them because of that, regardless of how childish that may be!).
The pages do transfer quite a lot so I took a thicker one in order to be able to glue them together whenever needed.
I am not precious with it at all: I personalized it with washi tape and just throw it in my bag if I am moving around!
I hope you found this short post useful in some way :)
