A weekend in San Francisco Bay

It’s now been three weeks since we moved to San Francisco. We fell in love with the city, even though it takes time to get to grip with the customs (… and the US administration). We’re living now  as if we were camping and take pleasure in discovering the city as tourists since the activities at home are rather limited … I will write soon a post on the city for sure but it requires a bit more time 🙂…

Gathering sweet memories

Our move to San Francisco approaching, I often feel nostalgic of our sweet Parisian life. I try to remember each moment, the places we love so much, details  … That’s why I was so happy when Innocence Paris offered me to work together around a photo album gathering the best moments of this last Parisian year!

Andalusia family break

For this new article on Sweet Cabane (I will try to be more assiduous because I really want to share more moments and thoughts with you), I would like to embark you with us in Andalusia, our last family trip during the Ascension weekend … No good tips, but rather a sensory experience of the area : we were charmed by the architecture, the maze of streets, the mixture of epochs that are overlaid and enrich each other to create…

Four magical days in London : memories of our stylism and photography workshop

Meaningful jewels

Jewels are very special objects, bearers of meaning and memories … For me, each pièce of jewellery is linked to an important moment of my life (marriage, birth, special moment, …), as a kind ofreminder that wears the body of what has marked us. But, though jewels are very personal objects, choosing one is also a commitment to others and, more broadly, to the world. Increasingly concerned about our impact on the environment, I am also paying close attention to…
