Balance your Life (book review)

Hey everyone ! Today I want to talk about balancing your life, I know it sounds like a big complicated concept but trust me it isn’t that complex. I recently read a book called “The bingo Theory”, written by Mimi Ikonn (she’s a youtuber, you can check her page out here). At first I bought it and read it out of curiosity because I love her lifestyle and inspiring advice so it wasn’t to try to change something about my life. But as I started reading it, I got hooked up and realized I had a lot to understand about myself.

Very simply, the Bingo Theory is about understanding your personality in order to be perfectly balanced in life and, in extension, meet someone that matches you perfectly. In the book there are 4 different types of personalities :

  • Feminine strength female
  • Masculine strength female
  • Feminine strength male
  • Masculine strength male

Basically the book explains the traits of each strength, you’re both masculine or feminine but are more inclined to one of those. The book helps you find out which one is your strength. So this is part 1 of the book. Part 2, now that you know what your strength is, tell you about how to balance that strength to be 50/50 between masculine and feminine. And finally part 3 is about who is your perfect match depending on your strength and how you can make it work with your significant other.

The book is very easy to read with interesting examples. The whole reflection is quite insightful even though it could have been made a little bit more complex and thorough. I wouldn’t mind more psychological explanations and quotes of previous research.

Overall, despite the simplicity of the book, I would recommend it because the concept is quite interesting and for once, someone suggest a different vision : we are all the same but with variants that have to be mastered. Mimi Ikonn’s motto? Men are not from Mars and Women are not from Venus : We are all from planet Earth.

My grade : 7,5/10

Color of the year : Ox Blood

Hey guys! Back with a different topic today and a different style for this article. As I scrolled down on Instagram or Pinterest (my two most favorites social networks ever for inspiration, tips, recipes, motivation boosts, etc.) I came across this new trend color for autumn/winter and, although it isn’t something really new, I had to make inspirational boards because I just love this color ^^. So today I wanted to show you this autumn/winter color : Ox Blood.

The name is weird and honestly, it’s kinda like the Burgundy color but it has more depth to it. Burgundy tends to be like a dark-red, ox blood is darker, it’s a black-red color that I really love. I think that color is very chic, sophisticated and easy to wear and combine with other colors.

This season, you can find it in fashion, beauty but also accessories, cars and decoration!

Here are some examples 🙂
