Keep the flame alive

A nice walk, a nice meal where you can take the time to enjoy your food, look at the person in front of you, listen to this person and noticed some little things. His broad shoulders, his grey eyes, his features which make you realise that the guy in front of you is handsome and this, this is pretty awesome. It has been for ages that I went to the restaurant with my man and this is too damn long. It occurs to me that it’s really essential to take care of your couple with some little touches like going to the restaurant, go to the cinema, do things together. All of us need some time with our loved ones and we shouldn’t be forget the importance of it. I do remember that my manager used to tell me to look after my hubby, to have some quality time with him, to do not forget him when I came back from my maternity leave. I used to brush away this piece of advice because I …

Inspiring talk with Red Smart Women Week

Nestled in a beautiful building, the Saturday morning talks and workshops centred around entrepreneurship  was the opportunity to learn how your idea can be transformed /translated into a global business and make it successful. Beyond the good advice and efficient tools from Fanny Moizant, founder of Vestiaire Collective, Charlie Cottrell, Head of editorial at We Are Social or Sarah Turner of Angel Academe , it is the passion that I feel from each woman sharing her experience and journey to be an entrepreneur that I really appreciated. Ambition and perseverance are the key elements to make your vision reality and become part of your daily life. There is no success without sacrifice. You have to choose between work, family or social life and generally they have two priorities : work and family. When what you’re doing makes you jump from your bed happy and excited for the challenges we will overcome each day, then deep inside you know you find your happy place. Sometimes it will be a shitty day, good or a fantastic day but whatever the outcome, …

Daring a Dream by Nora Roberts

When you are reading a book and so engrossed into it that you forget the time. That you have a strong connection with the main character because you understand her hunger for success or fame. Her need to be someone, to be different, to make a difference and to fuck up badly. Yes, shit happens. Everyday…and you need to pick up the pieces, raise and shine again on our own. It’s always good to have your friends that you consider your family to support you, no matter what’s happened because they know who you are and truly love you. It’s spicy, daring and hot to meet a man matching your hunger for an exciting and adventurous life. To argue, tease and compete with someone who knows you by heart, it’s magical. The guy able to get on your nerves as well as being caring, understanding and making you laugh is the One but I never encountered two fictional characters who ignited in me so much emotion, reaction and action. I mean when you are flirting, playing …

Anti-Aging and Hormones happy with Dr Ana Casas

I just read a brilliant interview by Tracy Anderson of the Doctor Ana Casas specialised in Anti- Aging and Regenerative Medicine and I felt deeply inspired by it. This article deliver what you really want to understand about how to prevent body aging and a quick insight into the mysteries of our hormonal system. More I was reading and more I started to be either gobsmacked or really reassured to use Herbs of Provence which is a simple way to counteract the effects of skin aging. I always wondered what are the effects of our hormonal system on our physical and health goals. It’s good to have the knowledge and therefore feel empowered because we understand the mechanism behind our hormonal system.  Did you know for instance that we have 20 hormones helping us for weight loss ? I can’t believe it, 20 hormones ! What I also appreciated is the confirmation that our ability to cultivate our joie de vivre, our happiness is key to have a healthy life. It is simple as it …

Total disconnection

I came back from my holiday and I successfully relaxed in France, in Brittany. Everyday I enjoyed good food, sunny weather and the beach with my daughter. In a small town at the seaside, nothing disrupted the pace of tranquillity of my well deserved holiday. Free of professional responsibilities, ready for a rejuvenation mentally and physically, I let go of my worries or concerns. I just enjoyed, being in the present without interruption. With no Internet connection, it’s incredible how I truly enjoyed each day. It’s like being in a bubble of normal routine and live everyday intensely. Your mind is craving newness, authenticity and quality and you bring all these things to you by simply slowing down and be patient with yourself. I didn’t need to do meditation  Why? because going to the beach, marvel at the beauty of the seaside was my meditation time. Open my heart and my mind to any, tiny detail raises my awareness and increase my joy de vivre and makes me feel grateful for these precious times. I truly connected with …
