Cynical ? For Valentine's day? Groundbreaking.

By Lyna Allet


We get it. You are single. Guess what? Me too. But is that a reason to be cynical for Valentine's day?
Because I know, some days before V-Days, you're enjoying a walk, watching around you all those hearts everyone put in their store, and with a sarcasm sharp as Miranda Hobbes, you tend to critic every couple that is passing by and every object shaped like a heart. And remind yourself that you are an independent woman who doesn't need anyone.I understand you. I was there. 
A girl who will watch « 13 going on 30 » (Mark Ruffalo I love you), eating Reese's in pajamas, looking more like Bridget Jones than Jenna Rink.


But so what? You are single, I get it, all your friends get it too because you are repeating that to everyone. And don't you dare to say that it's commercial. I see you.
You know, after being single for so long I kind of started to be an expert in celibacy - As if - and when you are single for long, the void inside you start to fill up with... nothing. 
But it's fine.So you just start living your life, be happy when you watch couples in the street (even if they french kiss at 8 a.m. Yikes.) Just start to enjoy being single. Start watching romantic comedies for the plot and the actors and not because you are lonely. You're going to meet the person. Or a lot of people. Or not. Your life.


There is a good side and a bad side in everything, especially in terms of relationships
.But please, don't settle for less, you don't deserve that. You are not too high maintenance. You deserve it. I know I sound like an Instagram page of any « girl boss » but you know, they are right about this. You don't need anyone you sexy thing.
So stop making that Wednesday Addams' face when you pass in the valentine's chocolate aisle in your supermarket, don't try to text your ex back and don't stare at couples in the street, you psycho.Enjoy your valentine's day anyway, if you are in a relationship or not, if you are watching « The Bachelor » alone, or if like me, you are out there dancing with your gal's all night, celebrate love in anyways. Oh, and never forget, I love you.


New Year's Eve, Good Resolutions and Me.

Here we are, Christmas is over, and New Year's Eve is on the way. Let me show you my unconditional love for this night.

By Lyna Allet



I am going to put it right here; I love Christmas as much as I hate New Year's Eve. And I adore Christmas.

If I'm being honest with you, I never was a person who loved the New Year's Eve. I still don't.

Celebrities make it look like it is the party of the year, celebrating in a gigantic house, drinking, and eating, with their A-list friends.

Yes, we all deserve to have their New Year's Eve.

But then, you remember you're not friends with Leo, so you gotta find something else. That's sad.

My New Year's Eve wasn't catastrophic, they were good, but I don't change my mind, you need to find a party, with people you like but it's complicated because your friends have another plan where you're not in. So you figure out something else, and you find yourself in a house that belongs to someone you don't know, it turns out fine but not sensational and at 11 pm you think that you rather be at home, alone, watching « The Holiday » and eat so much pizza that you're about to pass out.

If you don't see my point in why I despise this night, here it is, more simplified:

The fact that you have the ultimate pressure to find a party, you compare the soiree you are in with another one on Instagram and you're never satisfied. You got FOMO! ( I hate this word but I think he can't be used in a better situation than here, it's the last time, I swear on Chanel.), your friends have other plans, and you remember that you rather be at home. Yes, those are my New Year's Eve.

But besides the flawed party and social media, this is not a New Year if you don't have Good Resolutions.

Good Resolutions are for me more of things that you want to have or to become, but at the end of the year, did they became reality?

When I was nine, my resolutions were more like « Good grades, cleaning my room, helping at home...»

Ten years later, they didn't change.

The fact that I have the same resolution that 10 years ago, says a lot about me.

When I was 14, I resolved to not have a resolution. Such a rockstar, I know. ( I was in my grunge period, burgundy lipstick along with black eyeliner, listening to Avril Lavigne while wearing that tattoo-necklace we all had. Forgive me.)

I have a resolution for this year, and I hope you all have, even if they're corny like being happy and finding love (I don't judge you),

Even if you have the Instagram resolutions ( going to the gym, focus on you, and making more money)

or if you just want to be more productive, more social, I truly hope you'll succeed.

This is why I wish you all my best wishes for 2020, Happy New Year and also, be safe.

See you next year!

(I had to, sorry...)
