Bad Moms : a good reminder to have fun !

Just the name of this movie gives me the boost to smile and be proud to be a mum. The constant pressure that we have as women is horrendous. But when you are also a mum, everyone, particularly the society seems to think that we have to behave in a conventional, certain manner. Screw that. What we’re doing everyday is to love, cherish and educate our babies to be what they want to be, to be confident, polite, smart and beautiful inside and out. This is a hard and permanent job that we love. It would be much more easier if nobody didn’t give a damn about us but this is not the case. So, with all this pressure you will understand that seeing a movie entitled  » Bad Moms » is more than enticing. To mix bad with moms is already daring and indicator of a good comedy. We need as women, more than ever to have some « me time »or a good break to recharge our batteries. I didn’t have one this year but I …

92% and I don’t dare to continue my reading. Why? Because I just realised that the third book of this trilogy will be released only in … December!!!!! Bloody hell, I love this story so much that I couldn’t bear to read it and wait so I stopped, to tell you how I love this fiction… despite the fact that I am scared for the characters, wants to know how would be the end, I will resist to the temptation.

Summertime

It’s such a beautiful day. I can hear the rythm of life with so much clarity and gentleness. With the light wind touching my skin, the warm kiss of the sun on my cheeks, the background music synonym of salsa, sangria and Cuba, I  feel my shoulders relax and my breath slow down to match this pace, the pace of summertime.

Chocolate girl

I am trying by any means for my bundle of joy to eat green. Yes, green i.e. vegetables full of goodness. I can tell you right now, I am using my skills of negotiator and a bunch of ingenuity everyday to find new ways to convince her. Mixed, pureed I tried everything. Sometimes it’s a success and I am beaming with pride and sometimes it’s a deadly failure and I want to bang my head against the wall… and trust me, she know exactly what she wants. I don’t know what she ate at the nursery but since then, she is carrying a thorough examination of her plate before to eat constantly. It’s crazy but so funny ! even with her legendary carbs. Pasta, pasta, pasta, she can eat that daily with tomato sauce and meat. For her, lasagna, spaghetti bolognese is the heaven on earth. If she can have some chocolate cookies, fruits or even a slice of chocolate pie it’s pure bliss. Like her daddy, she discovered chocolate and she loves it. Already at 3 years …

La Colle Noire by Christian Dior

  C’est rare que je porte du parfum, faute de temps de trouver le parfum qui fera toute la difference. Le parfum qui sera capable de transparaitre ma personalite sans etouffer mon interlocuteur. Le parfum qui sera a la fois diffus, delicat, epice et so feminin. Et c’est par pur hasard, vraiment, que je l’ai trouve : la Colle Noire. Drole de nom n’est-ce pas ? mais signe d’une histoire bien propre a lui -meme et a Christian Dior. La Colle Noire est le chateau de Christian Dior, un lieu de bonheur, de paradis pour le designer et createur ou il a cultive des fleurs qui font partie integrante de la signature des parfums Dior. Ce parfum m’a seduit par sa feminite avec la Rose de Mai, son originalite par la savant combinaison avec le bois, le white musk et d’autres epices. Je n’ai jamais ete autant captive autantm trouble, intrigue et ravie de decouvrir une merveille. Merveille pour ma peau, mes sens et une joie d’avoir trouver un parfum qui me correspond. Il coute …

It’s so good

It’s so good now, just now to feel the breeze on my skin, the freshness of the wind this morning after the heatwave from yesterday. Don’t get me wrong, I truly love this hot water,  sign of summertime and pleasure but I also love every morning feel on my skin this breeze, this light touch from the wind reminding me that I love the morning, wake up very early when the world is still sleeping and being in the present without disturbance. It’s so good.
