Parisienne

JULY 13, 2018



Hello everyone! I can't believe half of July has already gone. Please make it get slower! I am enjoying a little rest at home, since the end of school year has been pretty crazy (hey colleagues issues!) I'm happy to be on holiday, I can tell you! Anyway, I'm also so happy to be able to focus on the blog and to see my friends. I like to call myself a "social zombie", getting back to life as school year ends! We are also planning a little vacation, I'm so excited! 
What screams more "Parisienne" that a striped top? Quite cliché, yet we could easily see why it's such a staple: cool, easy to pair with anything, versatile... Although, to make it a little more interesting, I tend to like those with a little twist and more details. This one has some gorgeous lacy embroideries and a rope closure that enhances the sailor style. I've paired it with this soft leather skirt with large pleats and these rope sandals - reminding of the top's. A little green bag for a touch of color, and here we are, a casual Parisienne outfit with a  little twist!

Miso eggplants with goatcheese toast

JUNE 26, 2018


Hello everyone! I'm happy to show you a new recipe. It's been quite a while, but cooking creations have not quite been my priority lately. When one's short on time, one tends to eat the same easy, approved and quick to prepare meals! Anyway, I recently got obsessed with Japanese miso, this fermented soybeans paste that is so versatile, diluted in soups to replace dehydrated stocks, coating vegetables, mixed in sauces... I recently tried a famous grilled eggplant with miso recipe and found it so delicious and interesting that I wanted to give it a bit of a western twist, associating it in a kind of fusion combination and in quite a fun form, so here it is: miso eggplants with goatcheese and lentil sprouts on a toast! I thin the goat cheese and butter balances quite well the saltiness of miso and that the onion rings and sprouts add some freshness to the toast. I'm quite proud of my creation, approved by a husband with high standards ^^. I do hope you'll like and try this creation, let me know if you do!

A week end in Colmar

JUNE 21, 2018


Hello everyone! I'm sorry we skipped last week's posts, but things have been pretty busy lately and I just had to focus on job matters, and believe me, I would rather have had more time for blogging than staying hours at school. Anyway, here is our "week-end in Colmar" post! Such a pretty city, best described with the word "charming". We spend two days looking for the loveliest shop signs and stuffing our stomachs with bretzels. I was actually born in Colmar, but my familly moved to Strasbourg when I was 4. I rarely visit there, but I most definitely should! Have you ever been to Colmar?

Colmar

JUNE 08, 2018


Hello everyone! I am so happy to finally share these pictures we took in Colmar, one of the nicest Alsatian cities. I was actually born there, but rarely get to spend some time back on its lovely streets. This weekend reminded me that despite my love for wild and exotic destinations, I shouldn't forget to appreciate the beauty of my own region. So, let me take you with me through this colorful place and stay tune for our tips for making the most out of your holiday there, that should be released next week!
