Washington DC Darling

Washington DC Darling

DC dulcet it was… What a blast of my country’s delicious culture and history. Where did I feel the most touched – at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. “Out of a mountain of despair a stone of hope.” The day was sizzling hot. Sebu and I had to dip our heads into water fountains. We had lunch at the Botanical Gardens – even their tropical climate seemed to be giving us some refuge from the beating sun.

DC is a full-eye-and-body experience. You can walk your little feet into a coma and dazzle your visual senses til you cannot take any more majestic landmarks. We slept in our glamping tent at a campground, a train ride away from the capital. That ended up being a very practical an idea. At the end of our days, we’d ride the subway home, get some dinner and doze off to the sound of Maryland grasshoppers.

Paris chic is everywhere where you make it happen… This is why I now regularly organize my Glamour Night dinner soirees. I invite a group of girls. We get together around good wine and food. This time we talked about our personal style – boho, glamour, sporty, office wear, minimalistic – and how we find inspiration to boost our style. Girls often also bring in new, exciting fashion finds for others to enjoy, too.

I need fashion to be interactive. The whole point for me is in sharing the fun I procure. That is what I’m also looking for in blogging. So, please leave a comment and let’s connect!

Summer is for leisurely strolls with your sweetheart in your Central Park. That’s exactly what my Sweetheart and I did. We took off in the evening glow and let time flow by.

At this moment I’m in a dulcet place in my life. My work schedule is pretty full, yet relaxed – leaving me with cherished Starbucks dreaming time. That place symbolizes so much more than just consuming mass production java. It is a place where I often go alone to write. I take time to slow down and meditate on life’s small sweetness. I blog and plan new projects. I write out why I should be happy right now. These kinds of times leave me encouraged. I see my day from a refreshed angle.

New York Pink

We al have our key words. The ones that we bounce around the most often in our talks with friends and such. You know, the word cloud that you can see in the side bar of this blog. The key words of our lives define us, and they also change throughout time. When you get a grip on your key words, you can gain precious information about being the unique you.

New York Pink

So what are my key words? I’ll try and list up some sweet things that make my heart throb… New York, pink (duh!), Starbucks, dark chocolate, red wine, champagne, latino music, coffee shops, deep discussions and Jesus. These all coexist in unorganized harmony.

New York Pink

I need New York in my life because it symbolizes a place for dreaming. I need pink because it boosts me and lets my soul free – to be who I really am inside. I affectionate Starbucks since I love the concept of it. When I used to browse Paris, on those solitary walks I’d pop in a Starbucks and get a cup of American sweetness. When at the beginning I had tough times here in Quebec City, I’d rejoice over the proximity of a Starbucks. I’d dress pretty  and make a trip over there, journaling in my magazine and gathering my strength to make it one day farther.

Heart Says Yes

Heart Says Yes

My little heart definitely says yes to spring. I ditched my winter jacket, and it felt like I had shed ten pounds. Here is an outfit for going out. The red accents give me the chic touch I’m always looking for. We saw two rock bands in concert, Sabaton and Nightwish. What a magical night. As we strolled a bit post show in the nightly downtown, I bathed in contentment.

Heart Says Yes

Look at the cutie that spent some time with us as his parents were under the Caribbean sun. Salto would follow me wherever I went. When clients came, he’d sit next to them, and learn English, too.

Heart Says Yes

Now my heart is jumping of joy since a dear friend from NYC is coming over for a few weeks. I get to have my “soul sister” over for a while and we’ll have time to indulge in Starbucks, red wine, girl talk and plans that make dreams come reality.

Heart Says Yes

In some cases friends become closer than your siblings. Your heart chooses. Affinities are formed. Life is shared.

I believe in letting your journey go as it must. I trust in not forcing relationships. People find time for you if you truly count. That is a sweet and clarifying thought.

I know that today my sister is about to fly over – and I heart that!

My sis and I wanted to do some vintage shopping in midtown Manhattan. We found a huge flea market a couple of blocks west from Bryant Park. I enjoyed rummaging thru the ample amount of glam accessories.

My style relies very heavily on accessorizing. Lots of people think I have a huge wardrobe – when in reality I operate with a very limited selection. I get rid of – mostly donate to the local charitable organization – anything that I haven’t worn in two years tops. I need my closet to be clear and desire-provoking. I always get excited about a new-seeming piece of clothing. The typical girl problem – nothing to wear and not enough space where to put them frocks – isn’t my Achilles’ heel. (Heels do I though love…)

I like fiddling with skirts like these – but in reality I know I’d never wear them. I only go for mini skirts. I gave a maxi dress a go a while ago. I really did not wear that puppy more than twice.

NYC is an excellent place to stumble upon jewels like these. The passage of many people ends up in treasures from across the globe. I have a thing for Cameo brooches. I have a ring that I inherited from my late French mom-in-law.

What’s fun is collecting the pieces that make your own style from the different places that you pass thru. The heart-shaped necklace I’m sporting in this outfit was a find from London. Whenever I wear it, it makes me think of my trip there one early spring.

Right now I’m looking at a sweetly low-key end of the week. There’s a gospel concert a friend of mine invited me to. The hubs and I will also take a walk in the woods and then go for some 3-dollar all-you-can-eat maple taffy at a sugar shack located in the forest, the location of which a client revealed to me.

Spring is the perfect time to gather up the bits and pieces of your life, sharpen up your style and sit down at a coffee shop and make some exciting plans. I’m looking at more jogging outdoors, more fruit and veggie cooking experiments – oatmeal bakes and veggie stir fries- and more time with friends, either visiting, on trips or just hanging out on terraces.
