Affirmation Card Deck by Mål Paper | A tool to help inspire and motivate

October 11, 2021 0 Comments

Hello everyone!


Are you the type of person who always finds themselves searching for 'positive statements' on the internet? Perhaps, you are looking for powerful phrases that can change your mindset. Or you simply enjoy repeating mantras or positive affirmations to help you overcome negative thoughts. If you are this type of person or you want to learn more about affirmations and positive thinking, this post is for you!

What are affirmations?

Affirmations are statements meant to affect your behaviour and the course of your life in a positive way. These positive statements can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts.


Mål Paper; (a UK based stationery brand with a focus on improving wellness, fulfilment and potential of the user) was so kind to send me their popular Affirmation Deck. Affirmation cards, or affirmation decks, are thoughtful first-person statements that encourage positive thinking and confidence

How should I perform affirmations?

Practising affirmations is the simplest thing you can do to jump-start your day with the right mindset. Affirmations are easy to practice. Choose an affirmation and repeat it several times. Try repeating the affirmation out loud or write it down. The Affirmation Card Deck by Mål Paper takes the guesswork out of creating a daily affirmation. You just choose a random card out of the 52 affirmation cards in the deck.

How do affirmations work?

The goal of repeating affirmations is to change your way of thinking (from negative to positive), change your habits, and create a better life. When you repeat them often and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes. Consider them a daily workout for the mind.

They can reprogram our thinking patterns so that, over time, we begin to think – and act – differently. Affirmations have been shown to improve optimism, lower stress, and even improve mental and physical health.

Affirmations can help anyone who is willing to practice them and make them a part of their daily routine. They are particularly helpful to use when experiencing levels of anxiety or stress

I highly recommend this Affirmation Deck; it is a simple tool designed to help create a positive mindset. For the price of £14, you get 52 affirmation cards - that's good value for money!

My Sculptshe picks

April 18, 2021 0 Comments

Hello everyone!


Today’s post is another fashion related post.   We all know the confidence that the perfect outfit can give us, however, the underwear and/or shapewear that is worn underneath, is even more important to make us look and feel our best.  Shapewear is basically underwear that is designed to temporarily alter the shape of your body, typically to flatten the stomach and make you look slimmer in the outfit you're wearing on top of it.  I was recently introduced to Sculptshe - a brand that mainly focuses on women’s shapewear, bodysuits, waist trainers and activewear; garments that are break-through in their design, manufacturing techniques and materials.


One of the many consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the many lockdowns, is the fact that many of us have gained some weight; mainly due to stress-eating and watching too much Netflix (lack of physical activity).  Luckily, on Sculptshe’s website, you can find various waist and thigh trainers to enhance your appearance.  Such as the Sculptshe 3-in-1 Waist Thigh Eraser Booty Sculptor, linked below (click on the pictures to visit the site).

This 3-in-1 garment will trim your waist, and help you reduce the appearance of cellulite on your thighs as well.


And since we’re on the topic of shapewear, check out my two picks below…

 

shapewear shorts
Sculptshe Seamless Mesh Tummy Control Butt Lifter Shorts


These shorts are made for those who want to be comfortable and not constrained by their shapewear.  Make with lightweight medium control fabric that gives you the perfect shaping you need.

Sculptshe Seamless Body Sculpt Shapewear


Let me know if you heard of this site before and, your thoughts about shapewear!  Maybe you have one (or a few) in your wardrobe already or you plan to buy one soon.  So visit Sculptshe to find the best shapewear for tummy (your tummy).   


XOXO, Cosette

Femme Luxe | ☀️ Summer outfit inspiration 🍹

July 09, 2020 1 Comments
Hello everyone!

I want to start this post with a quick life update - On Thursday the 2nd of July, my brother and sister-in-law welcomed their second born into the world; a handsome baby boy named Gianluca (pronounced: jaan–LEW–kuh)!  I’m an aunt… again!  It's hard to believe his sister Michela is turning five (5) next month.  I remember writing about her arrival, here, on this blog. 

But today’s post is not just about my beautiful niece and nephew.  As you can see from the title, this is a summer outfit inspiration post.  In the past, I used to love to write outfit inspiration posts, so I decided I should bring them back!  You can shop for all the outfits featured in this blog post at Femme Luxe.  If you are a regular reader, you already know how much I love this brand, the quality of their clothes and the unbeatable prices.  You can click on the links below or you could just click on my photos (the larger ones, not the collage)! 

Before we get started, in case you’re wondering why I’m wearing “Wednesday Addams braids”, it’s not exactly a fashion choice; it’s more of an “I can’t stand the heat” choice.  I’m basically experimenting with various braid styles.  So far I tried the basic braid, 2 French braids, 2 braids with a side part, a side braid (both to the left and to the right) and 2 basic braids with a middle part, as you can see in the pictures below.  Braids are the perfect hairstyle for this time of the year.  Plus, all I have to do is put on a trucker hat, and I’m ready to take my pup for a walk or run! 

Enough blabbing, let’s talk fashion!

Today’s featured clothing items are three (3) t-shirts and a fabulous loungewear set!






I love this lime colour so much; I think it suits me!  Do you agree?  It looks better in person than in the pictures.  The colour is very vibrant.  This t-shirt features a 'Champion 96' slogan print, short sleeves and a crew neck.  I pair it with jean shorts for a laid back look.







As I’m sure most of you already know, tie-dye has been around forever, but it's recently made a comeback as one of the biggest fashion trends of 2020.  If you want to keep up with the trends you must have at least one piece of tie-dye in your wardrobe. The easiest way you can incorporate this trend to your wardrobe is with a simple t-shirt, and with Femme Luxe’s affordable prices you can’t go wrong. You can find plenty of tie-dye outfits on the Femme Luxe website; from t-shirts to pants, dresses, co-ord sets, shorts, etc.






This not-so-basic black t-shirt has a short sleeve design with a scoop v neck.  It is a wardrobe must-have this season.  I pair it with patterned maxi skirts, pants and miniskirts such as the one I’m wearing in these photos.  







This co-ord set features a ribbed design, with a long sleeve crop top and a fake pocket detail on the matching leggings.  I love the light material and I also feel like a ninja or a robber or something wearing it.   I adore this formfitting matching set; you certainly won’t go unnoticed in this outfit!



P.S. – All the scratches and bruises you see on my arms and legs are the result of me playing with my pup.  I bruise easily; if any of my loved ones are reading this, don’t worry, I’m fine!


I hope you enjoyed this post.  Which item is your favourite?  Leave a comment and let me know.


Talk to you soon!

Femme Luxe 👕 👖 👚 | Fashion haul

June 18, 2020 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

I'm here today with a new fashion post.  I treated myself to some new clothes and I want to show you all what I got!  There's no therapy like retail therapy, am I right?  As you might have noticed, I'm a huge fan of online shopping.  Where else can you comfortably shop in the middle of the night while in your pyjamas?  There are no lines to wait in or sales assistants to track down to help you with your purchases and you can do your shopping in minutes.  If you are like me and you hate crowds or waiting in line (particularly in these times of social distancing) you probably love shopping online just as much as I do.

One of my absolute favourite online clothing stores is Femme Luxe.  For those of you who are not familiar with Femme Luxe, they are a UK-based online store that offers high-quality clothing at very reasonable prices.  And, at Femme Luxe you can always find the latest trends!



This time I ordered three t-shirts because t-shirts are always a staple in my spring and summer wardrobe.  To be honest, I like to wear t-shirts all year round but especially in the warmer months.  I also got a pair of trousers and another loungewear set.  I’m obsessed with the large selection of loungewear available on Femme Luxe’s website.   And the delivery only took 5 days!




The first item in this haul is a Blue 'Santa Clara' Graphic-Print T-Shirt.   This tee features a luxe 'Santa Clara' slogan graphic print with short sleeves and a crew neck.  I love this t-shirt so much.  It’s very light and comfortable to wear.  It’s ideal to wear in our hot summer weather when the temperatures get quite high.   


The second item in this haul is another graphic tee.  This Coral 'California' Graphic-Print T-Shirt features a luxe 'California' slogan and graphic print with a crew neck and short sleeves.  I love to pair this t-shirt with denim shorts and either sandals or white sneakers, depending on the temperature.  When the temperatures hit or surpass 30°C I can only wear sandals and flip flops!


The third item in this haul is a Pink 'No Bad Vibes' Oversized T-Shirt.   This tee features a 'No Bad Vibes' slogan print in a luxe loose fitting style.  The fabric is a little thick, I love this t-shirt but I’m not planning to wear it during the hot summer days.  However it is perfect to wear for my evening walks with my Maltipoo, Rascal; especially, when we go for a walk on the beach, where it can get a little chilly in the evening.  It’s also ideal for evening BBQs that are so popular in the summertime here in Malta!  


The fourth item is a pair of trousers.  I already own a pair of black Cargo Slim Fit Trousers and I love them so much that this time I got the same model in a different colour.  The Stone Cargo Slim Fit Trousers features multiple pockets and elasticated ankle cuffs.  As I told you previously about the black pants, they fit perfectly and are very comfortable to wear.  These trousers are a very versatile item to have in your wardrobe; you can either dress them down by pairing them with trainers or dress them up by pairing with heels.


The fifth and last item in today’s haul is the Rose V-Neck Boxy Loungewear Set.  I love this set!  This two-piece features a matching comfy t-shirt and straight leg jogger trousers.  The reason I love these loungewear sets so much is that apart for being SO comfortable, the can be paired with flats or heels and the shoes change the whole vibe.  Therefore, loungewear sets are very versatile; you can wear them anywhere! 



And that is the end of this fashion haul.
