my autumn list

As said before, I love Autumn. It makes me want to curl up at home with a good book and a candle whilst listening to the pouring rain outside. It also inspires me to work and be more productive. There is nothing more satisfying to me than knowing that I worked hard and did all the tasks I had given myself at the beginning of the day.

Earlier this year I started to write seasonal lists of things I wanted to do and I thought it would be nice to share my Autumn list with you guys. I hope you'll like it!

I actually already went to the woods last weekend but the leaves were still very green so I'm planning on going back in a few weeks time.

When I'm not reading about Egyptian funerary books (which is what my thesis is about), I love to read novels, especially the ones that have a bit of magic going on in the story. I managed to finish the new Harry Potter book in two days (I was really trying to pace myself!) and will now start The October Country. I don't really know what it's about yet but it has October in the name, which was enough for me to buy it. If you have any recommendation, please share!

Happy Autumn fellow human beings.

back to school

Hey guys!

Apologies for being silent for so long, but I'm (kind of) back!
So, let's get down to business: back to school, aka la rentrée for us French folks. Autumn and the renewal of the school year always inspire me so much, and I am ready for this new year to start! (which is a good thing since term starts on Monday). I did a bit of "back to school" shopping and I thought it would be nice to share my little haul here. I hope you enjoy!

Let's start with the basics: pretty notebooks. I got the brown ones from Paperchase and I simply used stamps to customise them. The notebooks with stars are by Nikki Strange but I bought them at Topshop.

I also got a pair of blue light glasses, which should save my life (or eyes) during those long hours spent working on my thesis. The brand is called See Concept and I got them from the BHV (= my favourite shop in Paris).

That beautiful brass ruler on top is from Amazon. I spotted it a few months ago at Merci but it was just too expensive for me. Luckily, I found it online 5€ cheaper including delivery cost. Win!

The pen and little pumpkin erasers were presents, and the crystals are from The Astrology Shop in London.

Sneaky peek at my translations!

Last but not least, my "school bag" is a simple tote from the bookshop Shakespeare and Co.

Oh and before I finish this post, I wanted to share with you this really cute quote I found on Pinterest:

I'm so ready for la rentrée.
