International Coffee DAY 2015!

Hello you there!

So as you know, if you follow me on instagram, is that I'm addicted to coffee in every form: Latte, Cappuccino, Frappuccino,.. You could drink a coffee every moment of the day, every season! I'm not only addicted just to coffee, but also to the Coffeestore Starbucks. I love every coffee they make and I could spend every day there! I think I'm not the only one how does feel like this about this coffeeshop.

So today was the International Coffee Day and Starbucks gave away a free Latte for everyone who came in the shop between 9:00 and 11:00... Ofcourse, I had planned something and couldn't be there on time but it didn't hold me to go there.

For this occasion, I thought of sharing my top 3 of my favourites Starbucks.


1. Caramel Coffee Jelly Frappuccino.

A cold creamy caramel blended Frappuccino with coffee jelly, finished with a delicious cream topping and caramel drizzle, yes that is the Caramel Coffee Jelly Frappuccino. This one stole my heart in Kopenhagen this summer, it was damn hot but I wanted a coffee badly. Perfect for a warm summer day like that one! (Sometimes I wish it was summer again to drink one of them again...)

2. Caramel Macchiato

The whole year, this is my heartbreaking one, I love it and Always will! Mostly of the time I drink coffe with the taste of Caramel, because they are the best ones. But a Macchiato, an Espresso with freshly steamed milk, is better than Cappuccino's, Espresso's,etc. Here they don't only put an Espresso with steamed milk but also a vanilla-flavourd syrup with an Caramel drizzle again (I really do like this last one).

3. Pumpkin Spice Latte.

The autumn is back with his cold days, red leaves and... the Pumpkin Spice Latte. An Espresso with milk and flavor notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg topped with whipped cream and real pumpkin pieces is really the musthave for these days! I tried it while I was learning in the Starbucks between two lessons and I was pleasantly surprised. The pumpkin is such a good taste in combination with the coffee and the cinnamon mades it perfectly matched all together. If you have the occasion to drink this one one of these days, don't hesitate, it is a real journey just drinking this little coffee!

What is your favourite coffee in The Starbucks? Did you try one of these ones?

I hope you enjoyed reading this (and that you're wanting a Starbucks now), blogposts about Corsica and all the pics are coming soon!

Love of Lou!

Throw Back: Danmark 2015

Hellow there!

Now that I have prepared Corsica, I think back of the awesome time I had in Danmark, the beautiful things I've seen, (the easy I had because my parents planned everything) etc.

So I thought why not sharing some pictures of it with you?

I loved the Streets there. With those lamps hanging above your head. I loved it!

This was the magical sunset of Roskilde. One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life. My parents took me there saying it would be magic, that there where no better places to take pictures. Well Indeed, I admitt: it was magic! The sky begins to be first orange, than it changes in pink and finally in a pastel blue/pink palet. The sun also never really falls into the sea. It just disappears at some moment... really something you have to see in your life!

This is Nyhavn, one of the most famous places in Copenhagen (you can also see it in Pitch Perfect 2). I loved the place, we did a little tour on a boat there, really nice but so typical touristic. Haha


 ... And all those other places, that where beautiful each one of them. that makes that country so exeptional and wonderfull.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Love of Lou!

Read it: A Work In Progress - Connor Franta

Hey you!

This holidays, when I was in Danmark, I took this beautiful book with me : A Work in Progress of Connor Franta. I bought it before my final exams began but knowing myself and knowing how much I will love it, I put it immediately in my suitcases. I was really excited to read it that I already began in our way to Danmark.

A Work in Progress is an intimate memoir of Connor's life where he shares his life lessons on his journey from a small-town boy to an Internet sensation. He shares his struggles during his life
with identity, body image, and sexuality in his teen years in a family with four children. He also explains how he decided to pursue his artistic life in his twenties.

In the beginning, it was not really like I expected. I didn't found it especially funny, I didn't see the purpose of it. But then, I watched a video of Connor and thought that it would be nicer to read it imagining Connor was reading it. And from then on, I devoured that book in one time. It was amazing, I loved every page of it. It where sometimes hard themes, about sexuality, being an adolescent, and all those harder things. But there was always a joke hidden, a little bit of humor somewhere and that mades it easier to read and easier to think about it. On some themes, this book helped me to make it more clear for me, on other themes, I was suddenly lost (For example: after reading this book I asked myself if it was really a good idea to chose for physiotherapy and if I had not better choosen photography instead of it.) On most of themes, it mostly more clear than not clear, but I think that depends on the person himself.

Did you read it or do you want to read it ? What do you think of it ?

Love of Lou!

A Little Frustration.

Hey you there! How are you?

So today I'm going to post something about a little frustration I have since shortly, the reason why I prefer to pay with a bankcard and maybe even why I never have cash on me. When you pay with cash, you Always Always have to check your money before leaving the shop because the marchant never gives you the money he has to give you...

This little frustration came up some days, last day of work I had to go with the bus, and saw a little supermarket and thought "Damn, still not eaten anything, I'm going to buy a croissant and a bottle of water". Of course, you have to pay like €2 for that but the only money you have in your wallet is a bill of €20. You pay and with your head still not awake, you don't count the money and what did I realised when I arrived at my work? He paid me €5 too little... Hatefully! In first time, it isn't a lot of money, but it's the principle. It is not because it's 7 in the morning, that I stil didn't drunk a coffee and really want him to hurry up that he had to let me pay extra for that stupid croissant and water.

Am I the only one with this frustration? Did it happen to you too?

Love of Lou!

Quote of the month: Septembre 2015

Hello there!

Like you probably already saw, earlier I did a Quote of the week every week, but I think otherwise this blog is gonna be only quotes and nothing really interesting anymore, I thought a quote on the beginning of every month was enough.

So this month, I found a beautiful one in one of my favourites books: A Work in Progress.

“It’s okay. It may not seem like it right now, but you are going to be fine. I know it’s scary, but don’t be afraid. You are who you are, and you should love that person, and I don’t want anyone to have to go through 22 years of their life afraid to accept that.”
Connor Franta

I found it perfect for the moment I'm passing through at the moment. Being graduated, going to University, being an adult now, having my driving licence, ... It's kind of scary in the beginning, and this holidays were hard because I was asking myself "Have I choosen the right course?", "Do I really wanna do that the rest of my life?", "What now? What is coming now?", "Will my friends of high school still be my friends?" and surely "Am I ready for the adult life?"

So yes, it didn't seem great this holidays, but now that "The real life" is coming closer I think it's going to be fine. And if it isn't the right choice, I can still change. If I don't want to do that for the rest of my life, well I will find out. What is coming now, is a new life, but an experience more. And real friends will stay friends. Even if you're life is changing.

Have you already had this phase in your life?
If this phase is still to happen in your life, I hope this quote will help you out of the labyrinth you will be. (Hard times are there to make the good times better!)

Love of Lou!
