  • My Blogging Goals for 2021.
    I am not a believer in “resolutions” and I am not even sure I love “goals” in the trendy meaning of the term. However, I have a direction in mind for my blog and I thought it would be cool to share it with you guys, so let’s do that! I have already told you about my want to slow down in 2021 and the goals I will share with you today are really aligned with that bigger goal of mine. Keep in mind that this little corner of the internet is OUR place and that if you have any recommendations, they are always more than welcome. Enjoy!
  • Couture Confessions – Chanel, Dior, YSL &c. ♡ Pamela Golbin
    As someone who loves talking about elegance so much, I just could not take this book when I saw it at the library! This book is basically a memento of all of the important ideas of the most prominent personalities of the Parisian Haute Couture. Gabrielle Chanel, Christian Dior, Schiap: everyone has they own part of the book to discuss various topics related to fashion.
  • The Reason Why French Women Seem To Be On The “Slimmer Side”: what my French mom taught me
    As a French woman, I often find it kind of funny when I see posts such as ‘the secrets of French women to…” & most of the time, these posts talk about berets, baguettes and weight. What, weight? Yes Ladies, most people picture us wearing berets with a baguette in our hand, and being really slim. Of course, you do not have to be slim at all, and this post is not going to be a “how to lose weight” one as it is not my cup of tea (at all). Instead, I want to share with you a piece of advice my mom taught me when I was still very young. This piece of advice will not make you lose weight but it will help you live a far healthier relationship with your body and with food (which is much more important than what the scale says of you).
