My Sunglasses Collection



My phone, too many bracelets and sunnies - these are a few of the things I rarely ever leave the house without. 

Just like handbags, sunglasses are one of my weaknesses in the sense that I buy way too many, but  somehow justify it because I wear them every day - or whenever the London weather will let me. This summer only, I have already added four pairs to my collection.  FOUR! The latest pair being the infamous Ray-Ban aviators in the orange mirrored shade, which were kindly gifted to me by the lovely people at Sunglasses-Shop. You already knew how much I loved my green ones, but these have barely left my nose ever since they have landed on my doorstep. 

So, how long do you reckon before this video is obsolete? I'm ashamed to say I already have my eyes on these Miu-Miu sunnies... Oops! 

You might have also noticed that I am trying to spend more time and effort on my YouTube channel lately and it would mean the world to me if you could check it out and maybe even subscribe if you like what you're seeing on it. Also, that'd make my little dance party for one a little bit less sad knowing I didn't just do it for myself, don't you think? ; ) 

What's your favourite pair of sunnies at the moment? I think mine definitely have to be my orange mirrored aviators

Bedroom Makeover Inspiration

"I feel like you're always redecorating!" These were my friend Michelle's exact words and I can't really say she's wrong. 

Ever since I started spending more time at my house on the French Riviera, I have been wanting to redecorate my room. I loved the boudoir feel of it, but ultimately, it was more teenage Elodie than present-day me. I did try to revamp it earlier this year and that hit the spot... for a while. As much as I love the new vibe, I find it lacks brightness and colour, which I really find myself craving in the summertime. So guess what? I'm thinking of redecorating. AGAIN. I know...


I do still love the floral wallpaper, and the light blush coloured walls and my furniture, so I don't want to be touching any of it. Instead, I'm thinking of adding a lot of white linen, some coral, pink and orange touches with rose gold accents and a lot more cacti and greenery in general. I'm also very tempted to build myself some new dark wood feet for my desk, but I'm not sure I'm quite ready to add woodworker to my CV, so I might have to get my dad on board with this one. Eh, salut Papa! 

These are small changes that I could easily undo come Christmas time if I wanted to go back to a more neutral decor, but I'm still not 100% sure whether or not I should take the plunge. What do you think? Would you change up my current decor for a more bohemian and brighter one or would you leave it as it is? 

I know a lot of you will be heading back to university soon. Are you looking forward to decorating your new room? 

I know I loved decorating my first room in halls, so let me know if you'd like to see what I did with my own sad, grey brick walls.
