As you may know, one of my biggest passion in life is photography. Lifestyle photography. I don’t call myself a photographer at all, but I love trying out new angles and settings. Unfortunately, I have let my camera down a bit lately and I have felt terrible about it. So last week I made a promise to myself that I was going to take it out with me the more possible. I hate missing an extraordinary moment that could have been fixed in time. So you might get to see more of my life through those kind of posts ! Hopefully you won’t get bored of seeing that fluffy face because I’m not about to stop takin pictures of her!
I’ve told you before about Kate Spade and my infinite love for that brand. I told you also about SATURDAY, the new affordable label by Kate Spade. What I haven’t told you already is my enormous crush on that bag. The weekender bag, by SATURDAY. It is perfect in every way. Big enough to carry your stuff for a weekend, and cute enough to take everywhere! Plus, there’s a hidden shoe compartment under! Brilliant! There’s also a smaller version of it, here (in the cutest shade of pink!). Now, look at those lovely patterns and tell me you’re not in love with this awesome bag :
So, hey, it’s my birthday in less than a month… Just sayin’! ha!
I haven’t been really personnal in here lately but now I am finally allowing myself to be. Life has just been so good to me these days, I just feel like sharing. Life is throwing me all sorts of new challenges and opportunities, I can’t help but smile and wonder how everything can go so well, when some other times, things feel so wrong. I feel like the next few months are gonna be filled with so much new things to learn, to create and dream about. And this is very exciting! Like I am slowly climbing that stairway to the good life. And it just feels good. Soooooo good. I can’t wait to tell you a little more about those projects and goals. What are you up to these days?
I came across this oh-so-cute DIY image here. The entire blog is amazing!
Lately, I’ve been giving my living room a new look for springtime, with warm color accents. (I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to settle on a color combination, it feels like it will be constantly changing!) I love looking for new prints furnitures, flowers.. I love displaying flowers in a room. It just feels more inhabited. Since i’m a very bad plant keeper, and they all sadly end up in the garbage, I mostly use artificial flowers. Now that my new color accent are neon pink and orange, I thought why not make pom flowers with tulle! Here is a very easy way to make them and embellish your space:
- Tulle, in several colors
- Dry branches
- Cut 2 inches strips out of your tulle fabric.
- Wrap it around your hand (like shown above). You might need several strips to have a thick pom.
- Slide it off your hand and tie a knot in the middle. (You get something close to a bow)
- Slide you scissors into each loop and cut it.
- You get a quite messy pom. All you need to do is trim it a little bit.
- Once you have the cutest tulle pom, insert it on the tip of a branch, and display your flowers in a cute vase.
Let me know if you make them! I’d like to know where you displayed them!
Sometimes, I can get pretty obsessed about something. Lately, my obsession has been that color. A mix between green and yellow with a soft touch of brownish. It’s just such a happy summery shade, and it pairs so well with purple and fuschia. Now I want chartreuse everything! Chartreuse dresses, chartreuse shorts, chartreuse shoes! I’m even dying to taste that chartreuse ice cream cone! Do you also get obsessed with a color sometimes?
In the city where I live, there aren’t tons of speciality gourmet shops. There are a few, but this one is definitely my favorite. It’s a tiny little pinkish space where they sale delicious bite-size cupcakes (therefore the name of the shop, Minuscule, which is tiny in french). The first thing that caught my heart was the girly decor, but the taste of their sweet treats is quite convincing as well. I thought a girly outfit was the perfect pair for that occasion. This little black dress is an essential from my closet. The ruffles gives it a little funkyness, but no too much, so I can wear it on a more dressed-up event, depending on how I accessorize it. With a more casual look like this one, a tiny belt and pattern tights did just fine. And Isn’t that bag the cutest of all? Chloe gave it to me for Christmas. Yes, my sister-in-law is a real pearl when she wants to!
If you ever come here, you have to drop by for an afternoon snack! Omnomnom :)
Sometimes, starting off a new week is quite challenging. Sometimes you’d rather stay under the blanket for a few more days. When you finally decide to get up, the last thing you want is to dress up in something tight and uncomfortable. You wanna dress lazy, but still look like a lady. Here I am today, showing you two outfits I prepared for days like this. Time to let your jogging pants aside!
1. Mika has been crazy busy these days, I’m happy we finally had a chance to hang out // 2. Little puppy changing our lives. // 3. My man is a lucky one. Cooked him some yummy breakfast. // 4. Just me loving that ball of fur. // 5. Old pic, but I love it. Mika & I, mix and match. // 6. That sleeping cat is the cutest. Which I could curl up like that in the sun light. // 7. Some more fluffy lovin’! // 8. Yup, we’re kinda crazy folks. (I stole this photo from Roxane’s phone) // 9. Terreur fell asleep under the tipi. No, I mean, UNDER the tipi. Really, how cute?

With the change of season comes along the change of purse. I am using a black one all winter, but when it comes to spring, I am bored with black leather. Last year, I fell deeply in love with that Volcom satchel-style brown purse. This year, I am still calling it my dream bag, guess that’s why i’m gonna use it again as my everyday purse. Today, I wanted to show you what’s in my bag, what I’m bringing with me everywhere I go. Maybe you’re about to switch purse as well and need to get organize about it!
WALLET / Of course! To keep all your cards, bills and money organize, what you need is a good wallet. I’m thinking about switching to a smaller size, but this Roxy wallet is still a charm. I love them with lots of spaces.
NOTEBOOKS + PEN / I’m not leaving home without a notebook and a pen in my purse. In case of sudden insane ideas or list-making emergencies (god knows i’m a list maker!), there is always a piece of paper to write on.
MOBILE + CHARGER / Yes, of course, everyone is carrying his mobile, you say? But I also figured it is the best place to leave my charger. Always at hand when I need it!
SUNGLASSES / Summer time calls for sunny days! I’m taking my favorite Vans sunglasses wherever I go!
CONTACT LENS CASE / For those of you wearing contact lens, you know they can sometimes get pretty uncomfortable. I’m carrying a case filled with clean liquid so I can take them off without wasting them.
HAND CREAM + NAIL FILE / Dry hands is such a pain. That’s why a little tube of handcream is a life saver (mine is Aveda hand relief). And what about a broken nail that gets stuck everywhere! AAARHG. A tiny nail file will do!
MAKE UP ESSENTIAL + LIP BALMS / I don’t carry my whole make up bag with me, but I like to have my very essentials. Like the lipstick or nail polish I’m wearing. Also, lip balm is a purse essential. My two favorites are the classic Burt’s Bees and the very cute EOS balls. (Each gifted by my dear friend Roxane!)
PILLS / Since I’m a migraine victim, I can’t leave home without Advil or Tylenol.
RINGS / CLASSIC JEWELS / There’s always a ring or two in a pocket of my purse. Sometimes a pair of earrings. I like having my classic jewels at hand, when I feel like my outfit is boring !
What do you keep in your spring/summer purse?
I never doubted Paris had a lot to offer, I just never figured I’d fall in love so deeply with one of its designers shop. Seriously, that blanket is killing me. I’m about to sell everything I own to buy a plane ticket to go get it. (I might be overreacting there!) The shop is called Colonel and they’re planning on launching an e-shop soon. Guess who is over-excited about it ?
That is what I call P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N.
