Kitchen Playlist

Apologies for linking up to a video that's actually not a video, but trust me this song is completement géniale... It's been on repeat for the past week...(and yes the boys are sick of it)

Can you believe this is a picture of the actual guy singing ? I was envisioning someone completely different the first time I listened to the song.

Check out this one too... Love !

Have a lovely Monday

Americana !!

Somehow I managed to skip telling you about about THE big event of my life last week : I officially became an American citizen !!
What ??
Yep, Euhmeweecan as my mom says...
BUT don't you worry, I've also kept my French citizenship (as France allows it) so outside of the US, I guess I'll be both :) Franco-Americaine, trop la classe !  

But before I get too excited, I still have a few things to master to fully embrace the American culture like :

- make a full Thanksgiving dinner from scratch (and tame that turkey)
- look perfectly polished like most American girls I know (perfect hair and perfect makeup even after 4pm)
- start drinking iced coffee (frappucino I'm looking at you) 
- hug... everyone...  
- understand baseball and watch an entire game (the whole 7 innings whatever that means)

Do you see anything else ?
Wish me luck !

Grammys - Danny Clinch

I have to admit, I don't know when these were taken or if they've been blogged about a million times already...
I just found them today and loved them so much that I couldn't help but re-post them.
I love this picture of a super-pregnant MIA with her hubby (I remember her crazy performance at the Grammys) and I could play dress-up for an entire afternoon in Carrie Underwood's lamé dress...LOVE IT

Thailand - part 1

The Grand Palace, Bangkok, Thailand - Amazing

Thanks to my work, I get to travel quite regularly...and although it can be kind of a pain to try to keep up with everyone else at work (read : childless co-workers) when you have a toddler at home, I still enjoy it (at least for the first few days, then guilt takes over and I feel miserable)

So anyway, thanks to my job (again) I get to go to Asia every 6 months or so... Usually we get sent to China which is pretty much misery the whole time we're there, not because of the country itself but because our factory is in the middle of nowhere and all we get to see after 24 hours or so in the plane is the hotel-the van-the factory and that's it...
So you can imagine how happy I was when I found out that this time 1) I was going to Bangkok (first time !) and 2) we had a full weekend there  

Let me tell you it didn't disappoint, we had a great time (as you can tell from my face on the last picture while I'm also trying to strike a good pose as Tyra would say, and avoid a farmer's tan on my arm).
Have you ever been to Asia ? Thailand ? Honestly I would love to go back on a real vacation, I heard the beaches are unbelievable...

Back !

Hi there ! 

WOW ! Talk about taking a short break from blogging... 2 and a half months ! pffew !! 
I missed you guys ! So much happened lately (well not really but I'm just trying to come up with excuses , doing the best I can :) The reality is I got completely sucked up in work and my day-to-day life and couldn't find anytime to blog or even read blogs at all... 
Now that things have slowed down a bit, I can finally get my head out of the water and make some time to post a thing or two...
So would you care to know, here are a few things that happened in our little life over the past 2 months :

- Little O turned 2 (Bday pictures coming soon) (and he sleeps till 8am on weekends - HOORAYYYY !!)
- I turned 31 (and yes I did find those big gold balloons - they're the BEST)
- We took a beach vacation (I'm ready to go back anytime)
- We went to Disneyworld Florida (and survived the heat, crowd, endless lines and 'dream come true' song) (talking about Disney, check this out, Annie Leibovitz's such a genius
- I found an amazing food blog (here) with amazing recipes (and I've started to cook even more and liking it - even more amazing)
- I went to Thailand for a week (for work - awesomeness to the max ! - pics coming soon)
- Little O can now say 'Mama, what a mess !' after turning the house upside down (like he has no idea who just did that)
- My blog turned one ! (and I missed its bday - oops)
- It's finally Spring in New England (on-time for the long Memorial day weekend)

Now back to regular posting, I'll be swinging by your blogs to say hi !
Have a fantastic weekend (and a long one if you live in the US)

Madame Mo illustrations

Just wanted to quickly share with you these adorable illustrations by Madame Mo... I've been really inspired by this post on Friday to show some positive images of Japan to somehow compensate all the sad and terrible images we've all seen recently.
Bon début de semaine  xx

Kate x Lonchamp

When it comes to the 70's, there's no question, Kate does it better...
The bang, the eye makeup and the tambourine, nothing competes with that

This makes me want to go on vacation so bad, I need some sun ASAP

How about you mes poulettes ?

Trente et un

It's my birthday today, my favorite day of the year ! YAY !!!
For some reason it feels much better than last year's, turning 30 felt a bit weird whereas turning 31 feels awesome !

According to my horoscope (you know I'm obsessed with it) I have a bunch of planets all aligned and a new moon today so maybe that's why !
I'm having a little party tomorrow evening and I'm so excited, I NEED to find those gold balloons somewhere !

I hope you lovely ladies had a great week and I wish you all a beautiful weekend !
I'll be back to more regular posting next week I promise

Happy Friday everyone !

Friday bits

Hooray it's Friday !!
How was your week ?
I know this was a short one here in the US with Monday off but it felt pretty long to me ! I'm excited for the weekend, I'm going to a girls night out tonight (yay!) and a bday party tomorrow evening !
Hopefully I can find a babysitter for tomorrow, so V and I can make it a date night (short notice party, can you tell most of our friends don't have kids yet ?)

En attendant, here are a few lovely things that caught my eyes this week :

- Leopard-print derbies, so gorgeous (I'm sending my mum to a Minelli store right now to get me a pair, merci maman)
- Cool kids tee-shirts, I just wish they came in my size (I love the cat one)
- Beautiful tea towels (and exactly what my kitchen needs) (via NabeFabric)
- How awesome would it be to have a slide in your house ? This is genius !
- Some French for the week with this expensive grocery bag (80 euros - ouch !) but a cool way to carry your baguettes with style

Ok mes chéries, that's all for today
Have a beautiful weekend wherever you are

Le petit Lucas du Tertre

Who knew you could get the cutest shots by giving an umbrella indoor to little kids ?
This little girl on the first shot cracks me up ! She's really doing a great job at holding her umbrella really high (and those cheeks !)

Of course the clothes are adorable too, French brand Le Petit Lucas du Tertre also has a great collection for Women (gorgeous scarves alert !)

Hope you're having a lovely Thursday (bientôt le weekend !)

Net-a-porter magazine

Talking about hit girls, Net-a-Porter just did a nice little spread about the-girl-with-the-best-haircut-ever, aka Alexa Chung.
Some cool pictures of my number one girl crush in very expensive clothes... oh and also her style interview (here)
Mes chéries, do you have a style icon ? Who is it ?

If I had straight hair...

...I would get a bang
There's something about bangs that just looks so so SO cool 
My sister just got 'the Kate Moss' as her hairstylist Patrice calls it... I'm not jealous AT ALL (me and my out of control curly hair are perfectly happy together, most of the time)
I've been thinking about cutting my long hair for the Summer (the truth is I'll probably never have the guts to do it). 
Does season change makes you want to change haircut too ?
If so, check out some inspiration for Spring here

Friday bits

Hooray! it's Friday and it's a long weekend here in the US with Monday off (hooray again !)

Here are a few adorable things I've seen in blogo-land this week :

- the cutest gift wrap tutorial ever, I'm definitely going to give it a try
- breathtaking water colored ladies (via Oh Joy)
- what a cool baby ! I wonder where his couvre-chef comes from (via Garance
- Isabelle Marant's new line of jewellery for kids (that I would totally steal borrow from my kid)
- Pocahontas tea for one set, irresistible 

Wishing you all a fun and relaxing weekend

Ma bicyclette

This made me laugh... I've been thinking about getting a bike this Spring so I can take my little man on a stroll but my problem is that I wouldn't know where to store the bike (we have stairs in front of our house and our sidewalk is on the narrow side).
Well clearly, this guy has found the perfect solution...

Daydreaming : Absolutely Perfect Clothes

One thing I love about this time of the year is that even if it's still freezing outside, stores are getting their new spring collection and the view of cute summery outfits puts me instantly in a good mood... I see the light at the end of the tunnel !

So today I've been daydreaming looking at the new APC collection... simple perfection

If it was just me (read: if I wasn't a very responsible mother who doesn't make stupid impulsive decisions when it comes to buying clothes) I would spend my entire bonus right here before it even hits my bank account... but no, no I'm not like that... Résiste Marie, prouve que tu existes (France Gall anyone ?)... sigh

Mes poulettes, what would you pick ?
