Capricci : That’s amore !

I love Italian food . Why ? because their food in its simplicity becomes refined , because they have an approach to life that is reflected in their dishes, good, simple and fun. Their cheeses leave me speechless while their local products are mouth-watering . All this makes me want to taste, savor their dishes with the honor they should have. I discovered a small deli/Italian restaurant with my Italian colleague that swept our doubts and exceeded our expectations. Reception ? welcoming. Service ? flawless. Quality ? unbelievable ! Taste ? an explosion of flavors cleverly combined to delight you and give you pleasure ! This restaurant/deli is the result of 30 years experience to seek the highest quality products and ingredients in Italy and to make you discover and enjoy the delicacy of the Italian cooking. I love eating quality food and went back several times and have never been disappointed. I discover every time the Italian products and their innate talent to make a tasty and succulent dish. The menu is changing on a …

Capricci : un régal pour vos papilles !

J’adore manger italien. Pourquoi ?  parce que leur cuisine par sa simplicité en devient raffiné, parce qu’ils ont une approche de la vie qui se reflète dans leurs plats, du bon, du simple et du plaisir. Leurs fromages me laissent pantoise tandis que les produits de leur terroir me mettent l’eau à la bouche. Tout cela me donne envie de déguster, savourer leurs mets avec l’honneur qu’il se doit. J’ai découvert ainsi une petite épicerie/restaurant italien avec ma collègue italienne qui a balayé nos doutes et dépassé nos attentes. Accueil ? cha-leu-reux ! Service? sans faute ! Qualité ? incroyable ! Goût ? une véritable explosion de saveurs savamment combinés pour vous ravir et vous donner du plaisir ! Amoureuse de manger des mets de qualité, j’y suis retournée plusieurs fois et je n’ai jamais été déçue. Je découvre à chaque fois les produits du terroir italien et leur talent inné pour rendre un plat appétissant et succulent. Il n’ y a rien à dire, c’est vraiment à essayer et le bonus, vous avez une variété …

La chipie de Caudalie a encore fait des siennes!

Sacrée chipie va!  Elle  a encore frappé pour me tenter à nouveau de l’avoir dans ma salle de bain. Elle est mignonne parée des couleurs du Sud, légère en texture pour les peaux sensibles et me donne envie de changer my skincare routine rien que pour elle! Un  véritable appel aux vacances, farniente et vacances dans le Sud. Elle revient encore plus personnalisée pour le bonheur de ma bambina de peau qui est un tantinet sensible. Comment voulez-vous avec tout ça que je ne craque pas…serieusement !!!!! Happy Friday ladies !

Ohhh for the love of God!!!

What’s the matter with them ? Why, when it’s time to learn and listen, they become real drama queens raising their concerns, worries as if these minor things will change their world ? I don’t get it and I start to be increasingly annoyed by them. I used to treat their diatribes lightly, still, however open to understand and calm down their worries but this time I reached my boundaries. I accumulated progressively infuriated resentment, anger when they are jumping to conclusions and making fucking assumptions…and trust me it’s not nice to see me furious, the dark force is within me and my eyes are speaking more than my words ! Today I realised that I needed to speak my mind, spill the beans and re-adjust the situation…and I did it…feeling still annoyed but at least more peaceful than before. What I learned is that  I need to observe, OK, but always act quickly to communicate and stop to drama, bring them back to reality, shake them ( if I can) and make them understand …

Mangajo : a bunch of goodness in one drink !

Mangajo, what’s this name bring to your mind ? Novelty, travel, exotism, india ? If these words pop in your mind you’ re not too far from the truth. The same thoughts pop in my mind and also a real curiosity for this new product. I discovered this drink with my man at Planet Organic. One day, he decided to give it a try because he wanted to drink green tea differently. Mangajo made a huge difference to the manner I drink tea now. We have always the picture of the classic green tea we used to take in coffee, bars or restaurants most of the time sour, strong and not really pleasant. It is only when I discovered Choi Tea Time that I started to fully appreciate drinking green tea. A tea which is light, delicate and so full of flavours, taking the time to drink green tea is like a real ceremony, a real time to enjoy this delicate and so healthy tea. It is where Mangajo added a punch of colours and taste …

A must have in your bathroom : green clay

When I was 15 years old, I have been introduced to this clay by my dad who showed me the benefits to purify my skin once a week. He used to spend a lot of time in organic shops and was keen to protect his skin naturally. I have to say, at first I was quite doubtful about it, in addition it wasn’t too pleasant but my skin… I was speechless… my skin was even, more radiant in a natural way, in a nutshell beautiful. I never suffered of acne until I started to enter in my thirties and once again green clay has been my saviour ! Since then, I always believe that using the natural resources we have is the best for my skin and nature did not disappoint me ! Green clay is the most purifying clay we may have. It is a lifesaver for oily skin or skin with acne. Mountain Rose Herbs says: « French Green Clay also sometimes traded as Sea Clay is by far one of the most majestic, …

If you demand quality sportwear, comfort and style, Fabletics is for you !

It’s rare that I found a product or a brand which truly live up to my expectations. I mean, we have plenty of choice and this does not mean that we are entirely happy about the products and services that we are using… seriously ! More the time is flying by, more I became increasingly demanding in terms of quality, comfort and result. I have to share this with you. Today again my favorite personal trainer Tracy Anderson challenged me once again and exceeded my expectations. When you drenched with sweat, having difficulty to follow her moves, you know that she’s the master of her TA method and there is a long way to go before you will be disappointed by her. She is telling the truth and she delivers. As simple as that with her streaming. Dear readers, forgive me for this digression, I just finished my workout. Quality, comfort, style, these are the words popping in my mind when I think about Fabletics. I have to share this with you. I never, ever …
