Farmers’ market Day

Even I was living in Paris, I had been dreaming of this famous Ferry Building farmer’s market my friend Cécile talked me about … We went there last Saturday to fill up with fruits, vegetables and flowers. Here, every market stall shows local and seasonal fruits, vegetable and flowers  that are both delicious and a pleasure for the eye, since we had at hand the most beautiful of what California owns. This article is also the occasion to talk about…

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…

Holistic beauty

I don’t write articles about massage and wellness. Nevertheless, I love it because, in my opinion, it allows to really relax and feel better in our body and in our  head. I met Cécile Cotten  a few months ago thanks to Lucille (whose blog lgb-etc is great). I fell in love with Cécile’s wellbeing apporach which is completely in tune with my conception of beauty. At Cécile’s, everything is simple and natural and starts with understanding  deeply the patient’s needs….

Welcome to Astrid’s fairy world

The only word to describe Astrid Lecornu’s work,may surely be the one of “fairy”. Using her only hands, pliers and needles, the young designer works with wire, metal and textiles to create unique objects that are closer to art than to craftsmanship. Crowns, puffs, small miniature paintings, birds and other creatures come to life with delicacy under her magical fingers. In parallel, Astrid also works for the biggest fashion companies, such as Dior and Chanel. Here are some of her…

Slowing down in the city

If this blog I created almost four years ago, has only one objective, it would be the one to learn to slow down, to live according to the seasons, either we live in the countryside or in the city … However, everyday, I struggle with this hard goal, often difficult to achieve …More and more intense work,  mental load (yes, the famous one), full agenda … In short, not easy  to slow down on a daily basis! But, to avoid…

I really appreciate this French brand, which has always evolved with the times and offers very good quality products. Here is my Christmas whishlit… A  lovely but simple cotton bed linen with…
