Hey guys! Long time no see, as usual... It's 11:30 am, I wanted to watch Modern Family on the TV, but for some reason, my TV doesn't work u_u" I'm so frustrated! So I've decided to update my blog. I've finally given up my old HTC wildfire and bought the IPHONE 4S... and waw I'm just in love with this phone *__*. At the same time, I've created my Instagram account which is so cool, if you wanna join me my user name is catamiaou ;). 

Now, concerning my little life, few weeks ago, I went to Chamonix to see my dad who has moved out there with his new wife and my little bro'... yeah this family is complicated lol. To be honnest I don't really enjoy mountains' landscapes... I can't explain, I don't feel confortable at all. But at least, the weather was so nice! I don't know if in your country the weather question is important recently or not, but in France, it's on the top of topics because July is so cold, so rainy, it's totally unusual, everybody is missing the sun, we are so sad...

My apartment has been officially sold... so, for now, I'm living with my boyfriend and I'm also looking for a job as a personal assistant which is not an easy task... But it's been only a week so I have to be more patient I suppose...

I've also dyed my hair, goodbye red hair, maybe because of the weather... as it's always dark outside I wanted my hair to be darker too so I've bought Color Casting by L'Oréal "Chocolat Glacé", I feel much more better now... until next time xD. As I'm always changing my hair color, I wanted to try L'Oréal new hair care called "Extraordinary Oil", it smells so good, provides complete protection and nourishment without leaving a greasy residue. It's my favourite hair product of July <3.

I hope you are enjoying your holiday, and summer time! I wish I was on a beach *__* haaaaa....

Japan Expo

Hey Guys!

Hope you are doing well? Yesterday I went to Paris' Japan Expo with my brother for the first time. I was supposed to go there 5 years ago if I'm not mistaken because I wanted to meet Anna Tsuchiya and Olivia Lufkin but unfortunately I had exams. 5 years later I've decided to go there as everybody at Uni were talking about this event but to be honnest I've been a little bit disappointed... I don't know maybe I had too much expectations... brief...

So crowded....

Testing the next Super Mario Bros on Nintendo 3DS XL and also Kingdom Hearts

Unable to get food... but happy to get a delicious coco bubble tea

Cosplay, cosplay, cosplay....

Sailor Moon & Kingdom Hearts were everywhere. I think Sailor Moon's manga are back in stores and Kingdom Hearts has finally its manga.

I've screwed up...

What's up guys?

I heard that today is the first day of summer... I was like "really o_O???" I mean, in France, the weather is so bad.. since the beginning of spring we had maybe 15 sunny days... Anyway, big summer vacations are starting wich means that exams are over. Unfortunately, this year I've screwed up my exams :/ I was a little bit (or a LOT xD) sad... but I must move forward. Last week, I've been working as a hostess for an event, it allowed me to change my mind. It was such a great experience. I was in charge of welcoming VIP and driving them thanks to a golf cart through the exhibition. Working conditions were kinda good since I could enjoy the VIP lounge and enjoyed great gourmet menus.

One part of the VIP lounge... so cosy

Duck fois gras terrine, Mango chutney, Lamb's lettuce

Roasted sea bass fillet, vegetable tagliattelle with saffron

Vanilla chiboust cream & raspberries, butterscotch sauce and brown sugar puff pastry

Now, I'm spending the week in my hometown, and then, I'm gonna go to Chamonix during a week to see my dad before moving out, deadline is July 10th... I don't think I will have funny plans for this summer because I have to look for a job. Wish me good luck! But, one thing I really need to do this summer... working out! Seriously cellulite is going to become my worst enemy, I really need to shake my butt xD. I'm kinda interested by the swedish gym. Wait and see. Enjoy your summer vacations guys!

About LUSH...

Hey guys! Long time no see!

Recently a LUSH store has opened next to my train station in Paris. I've been attracted by the eco/earth friendly thing, 100% natural, handmade cosmetics etc. So I've tried a capillary cream... and guess what? I'm so disappointed! Right now, I'm blogging with horrible sticky hair xD it's terrible! I don't know if I've been totally unlucky with this one... really it's like if I put tons of hair gel... I don't understand because this cream was supposed to repair my hair x) to make it softer. I washed my hands twice and it is still sticky o_O'. I should add that I can't stand the smell called "Gorilla Perfume"... I've tried it with dry hair, wet hair... under the shower but the result is always the same... Well, that's all... I think I just have to grab an other shower x_x. They gave me a free sample for my face, but I really don't want to try it xD too scary, no way!!! What about you guys? Have you ever tried LUSH products?

Jewelry ash

Last time, I bought 2 boxes of Jewelry ash.. it's been around 1 year and a half, so I was afraid to use it as I didn't know the expiration date... I did so many researches on the Internet that I found some posts of girls saying that they hair turned green... so scary xD. I plucked up courage, and I did it! And good news! It's not green *__*, I'm so relieved. I really needed to hide my horrible roots... Sure, the result is still different compared to the box, but I like it, and it's still an easy way for me to change my dark natural hair color. If you want to read my review of Palty Diy Hair Color, here is the link ==> http://catamiaou.blogspot.fr/2011/07/review-palty-hair-dye.html



At the same time, I've changed my nail art for something simple, because, as I said in one of my previous entry, I'm gonna look for a job. I don't want to make my potential employers run away from me because of strange nails x).

Let's talk about food now ^_^. My hometown is very close to Belgium. I was surprised to see that Mc Donald's menus are different. For example you can't order "potatoes" only french fries. And I ate the best dessert "Parfait". In France we only have Mc Fleury & Sunday... I don't know about the name used in your country. But the "Parfait" was amazing *_*.

Back to Paris, we have celebrated Korea at Uni with a special day dedicated to this country. I couldn't attend this event because I had to go to class, but I had the chance to try a famous dessert 경단 made with kidney bean. I really have to find it in the asian area of Paris *_*. One of the best thing I've ever eaten x).

Disneyland Paris 20th Birthday

Hello bloggies!

I'm really tired right now because I've just spent an amazing week end with my family. They came to my place during 4 days to celebrate one of my little bro's birthday. We went to Disneyland Paris, one of the most "magical" place in the world haha. Seriously it has been a while that I haven't been there, like 2 years. Disneyland Paris is celebrating its 20th birthday, so everything was amazingly decorated. A little negative point : the weather... April has been so cold! I got 2 weeks of holiday... 2 rainy weeks...

First: Walt Disney Studio which is the favourite park of my little brothers because attractions are really scary xD. Crazy little monsters. I tried for the first time "Rock'n'roll Coaster and... I screamed so much haha I couldn't recognize my face on the picture haha, but it was great! 

Then, the famous Twilight Zone Tower! Actually I was so afraid in Rock'n'roll Coaster that I thought that the Tower was more funny than scary x). Have you ever tried it? Unfortunately I wasn't able to take a picture of our scary faces because they know that everybody takes the screen in picture, so they don't sell pictures anymore... they have decided to hide a part of each picture to oblige people to buy it. Here is a little pic' of me and my little brother, Mathéo, our bday boy after the attraction. Maybe some of you have noticed something. I've changed my hair color. I'm gonna add a new post about Palty soon.

We also spent a lot of time in the new area of Walt Disney Studios Park, called Toys Story Playland with 3 new attractions. Once again, decorations are amazing! It's like if you were lost in a toy-box. And then, the rain started :/. By writing this, I realize that this new post is going to be too long if I talk about the 2nd day. So I'm gonna post an other article to talk about "Parc Astérix" soon. Let's focus on Disney.

Because, now, I'm gonna talk about the main park of Disneyland Paris. To celebrate its 20th brithday, Disney offers a new parade. I don't know why, I'm such a big child, everytime, during a Disney parade, it makes me wanna cry x). It's just so beautiful. I think sometimes, I live in a little pink bubble xD.

 Ok, I took so many pictures that I can't add all of them, but this is the best part, at night there is a new special show "Disney Dreams" with fireworks, fountains. At the same time, the castle of the the park (the beauty sleepy) becomes totally different thanks to a powerful game of lights. Different disney movies are representeted such as Tangled, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan and the famous Tinkerbell... it was amazing! One of the most beautiful show I've seen in my life!

Souvenir time! ^_^ . Well, as usual, I bought a cup, adorable key rings, and a soft and red blanket... so soft I don't wanna leave it anymore xD. It's gonna be tough in the morning! But this time, I was so happy to find a store which was selling jewerly. I'm addicted to Disney Couture's jewels but it's so difficult to find them and to order this brand in France, so when I saw this, I was so excited! Disney + Swarowski best team ever! I've picked up the 2nd Tinkerbell necklace *_*. It was so hard to choose one x_x. And look at the castle *__* so beautiful but you should avoid to look at the prince xD OMG so expensive!!!

Growing up

Hello bloggies!

Indeed, it's been a while. Truth is... I've broken my laptop, well I mean because of a virus u_u so I had to save money to get a new one as I'm still a poor student xD. Wow, I was so unhappy without my computer! It's like a drug... So, this is my new baby *_*, I sleep with him, I.... I'm still looking for a name... just kidding of course x). But, to be honnest, several weeks without my computer has allowed me to work harder for Uni ;p. Sometimes, at the week end, I tried to blog from my boyfriend's laptop about a parcel that I've received from my japanese host family, and , I've also been tagged by Bunny, but I couldn't answer... sorry >_<.

As I had to save money to buy a new computer, I couldn't go back to my hometown as often as I used to, it was so difficult for me. Besides, my mum is my nail artist (because, no I'm not patient enough to do nail art) so I had to keep the "february nail art" during 2 months x_x it turned horrible. Finally, I came back home last week end... and... tadaaaaaa. Ok, it's not a secret anymore, you I know that I love black color, so I really enjoy this nail art style *_* thanks mummy, you are the best <3. 

I think it's gonna be my last extravagant nail art, because some things are going to change. My dad is selling our flat (Paris), so I'm gonna be homeless x). To be honnest, I have planned to go to Uni during 3 years, and right now, it's my second year. But, as my dad is living the town, I will have no choice but to get a job and to stop University. Fortunately, I have a great boyfriend who allows me to stay over.

Some of you, could think "lucky you" "you must be so excited" but actually, I think it's scary. Lately I've realised that I've grown up so fast... I'm realizing how short life is, we really should enjoy each seconds. I'm gonna be 23 in August, so yeah, I'm an adult now, for real... as I'm a student, I don't know why, but I used to regard myself as a teenager x). Joining the "working world" is scary... I'm over thinking everything these days, my brain is melting, and I'm feeling so nervous... maybe it's time for me to start yoga class xD.

February Nail Art

Lately, the weather is so cold in France around -10°C x__x so hard to find motivation to get out ofmy  bed in the morning xD. I spend a lot of time playing Zelda Skyward Sword, Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and Final Fantasy XIII-2 such a geek lol.

Here is my last nail art ^_^. In my next update I will talk about a parcel that I received from Japan from my host family.

Valentine's day is coming quickly! Do you have any plan? Take care  <3

Happy New Year

Hey Guys ^_^

I wish you a Happy New Year 2012 (in late ;)). How did you celebrate it? I went to restaurant with my family as I was still in my hometown. When I'm here, I want to spend as mush time as I can with them. We ate oysters I mean "basic" but also hot oysters, so good! Even better.

The inescapable seafood platter, crayfish and mussels.

Just a little update about my peaceful New Year's Eve to wish you all the best for 2012 <3
