Being your own boss might be really hard.
I recently discovered myself as a workaholic.
As I work from home, taking some moments for myself looks sometimes impossible, my brain is like in a permanent storm.
I’m not complaining at all, I have the chance to do a work which passionates me, I am happy every single morning when I wake up because I know that I am going to do something that I adore.
I learned to have a schedule where there is little moments of peace, calm only from myself, away from any socials medias and phone.
That’s what I wanted to share with you today :  Three things that relax me and help me to let go.


1. Candles.
I am addicted to candles, there are everywhere in my house.
I light up candles when I wake up, during the tea time, and most of all when I am working.
It’s something that relaxes me deeply, seeing the flame, smelling the perfume calms me a lot.
I feel like I am more inspired with a candle, I dont know if that makes any sense ^^.
Rituals are a huge part of my routine.





















The olfactory memory is the one who lasts longer in your brain: by only smelling a fragrance, you can remember of someone or something that happened 20 years ago.
I bought my candles at Jo Malone.
There is so many choices, for every tastes : sweet, spicy, woody or floral fragrances.
Choosing the fragrance which suits you may looks like a battle, but once you found the good one it’s a real pleasure to be at home.


2. Cooking pastries de-stresses me so much !
Cakes, muffins, pancakes for the Sunday brunch.
I love making my loved ones happy with some good pastries.
There is nothing better than a yummy dessert made with love and patience.


3. Last but not least, my two little dogs.
There is nothing in the world which makes me more happy and calm than playing and cuddling these two cute little faces.
If you don’t already know them : the Spitz Châtaigne and the Chow Chow Nala ♡
This little furry people are always there, playing around, watching me as I am writing this blog post.
Animals really put joy in your life, they are lifetime partner so take care of them.

    Oh my gosh, your dogs are so cute! I find myself to be a bit of a workaholic as well, and I find that Netflix and Chill usually helps me get away. Jo Malone candles help too, hehe.

    Your dogs are seriously adorable, they melt my heart! It was also brought to my attention that I’m a workaholic, having a nice dinner or ice cream helps me. I also love candles and watching series/movies.
