Easy nailart

26 March 2017

An easy tiny video tutorial today: nail art for the (not) gifted (like me). I’m always amazed by some nail arts which seem to be made with a laser machine or some nuclear precision instrument. Congrats girls. I personally know how to apply my nail polish without putting some on my nose, I can do a french manucure without stencil, draw lovely dots on my nails: that’s it.  Continue Reading…

Short Wedding Dresses

robe mariee courte chic dentelle selection

Last year, my post on designers wedding dresses was a hit (no, I don’t even exaggerate, so that I even wondered if my readers were all about to get married…) Hum, I suspected some of you to have read it just by curiosity, to dream a little bit (yeah, even if getting married doesn’t tempt us at all, we love wedding dresses).  Certainly some reminiscences of childhood I bet. So this year, I wanted to make a shopping-list of made in France short wedding dresses. I realised that it’s still rare. For civil weddings, this can be a good alternative for those who don’t want to wear a long dress. Continue Reading…

Winter is leaving us slowly, yes too slowly indeed: by the way if you could leave quicker please: we saw you far too much ! Well, it begins to bud, we come back to life, that’s pretty cool. So, I take the opportunity to make a small assessment on some food products which are part of my diet routine, and which have the advantage of being called “healthy“.  Continue Reading…

Would you like a good address to eat fast or at least for a low budget in Lyon ? As you know, I like to share with you my great gourmet addresses, but in fact on a daily basis, we seek for very good value for money, a place where you can eat at reasonable price and where you feel good. Among those places, I add on my list l’Estanco du Marché, located in Lyon 6.   Continue Reading…

Oldies but Goodies !

robe createur xuly bet made in france

Every season, we all want new stuff (shoes, clothes, jewels, etc…) that we really need. But in our dressing, they are some we don’t want to get rid of. This is my case: no more fashionable ? So what ! First of all there is a good chance that they will be fashionable again one day;  on the other hand, we love them so it’s enough to keep them, and it’s precisely that which makes our oufits original: THE good mix! That’s why I wanted to talk about “oldies” today: those so-called old clothes that actually aren’t. Continue Reading…

Here is the last Saint James sweater I bought to my man: a sailor sweater, a real one. I spotted this sweater while I was attending the MIF: a fair dedicated to French Manufacturing in Paris. As I was chatting with 2 guys of the St James team, I stopped saying “wow, I looooove your sweater“. Reference and color, please ! And that’s how it came on my gift listContinue Reading…
