It didn't seem possible that Paris could be any more unpredictable. But the renowned city of love has shaped my opinion once again. To start, being that I once lived in Paris and was far too familiar with the Air France Thursday night red eye from JFK to CDG, I have to say that I never feel too inclined to do the touristy things when I am back. Of course I always make time to see Tour Eiffel, walk the Tuileries Gardens, pass through Palais Royale, and so on and so forth, but for the most part, I really just enjoy living life how I once did as a true Parisien…Read More
“Some of us are born with a crack in our souls”. This was the first line of a piece that I read in a recent edition of Cereal Magazine while I was rummaging through a sea of design magazines at the bookstore the other day. What a heavy sentence. I read it again and again and had to stop for a moment and think to myself what it actually meant. Is it a positive thing? Is it a negative thing? Does this mean that we are all inherently broken people? Does it mean that as humans some of us are different?

An inspiring woman is an attractive woman.

Paris... the place (and time of year) that my blog started in 2014. The place that stole my heart and my life and made me forever tied to this city, country, culture, cuisine and couture!…Read More
A la folie means, "the madness" in French. To me, that is a perfect phrase for my life the past few years. My story includes a mixture of glamour, tragedy and international intrigue; a story that, at its core, holds love, adventure and dreams before all else...Read More
The French countryside is by far of my new favorite locations. With a cluster of tastefully appointed stone cottages and gravel streets, it's the perfect place to unwind and get away from the city life and relish in a peacefully enjoyable country evening with those near and dear to you...Read More
American Girl in Paris; Part 1.
It's a very daunting experience; packing up your life and moving countries on a whim and one that I highly recommend doing at some point, if you are of synced appetence. Moving into an entirely new culture, one that you don't know well or even understand the native tongue, is as challenging and complex as one might assume, but it's entirely worth the breath of fresh air if you are looking for a change...Read More
