BOOK LIST #1 : Self-care

Je n’ai jamais pu me définir comme quelqu’un qui aime lire plus que ça. Mais après tout dépend du sujet. Si le sujet sur lequel je lis me passionne, je peux y passer un temps considérable. Mais au delà de ça, j’aime m’instruire, savoir des choses, m’inspirer de la pensée des autres qui osent publier des choses. Donc je vous fais découvrir, ces lectures qui me font envie et qu’il me tarde de lire pour rester au top de l’inspiration. 1/ BECOMING de Michelle Obama C’est sûrement le livre qui a été le plus attendu à la fin 2018 ! “Becoming” de Michelle Obama est le 1er roman de l’ancienne FLOTUS et qui plus est, autobiographique. Elle y raconte comment une fille de South Side de Chicago réussit à se hisser à la fonction la plus…

Comme j’ai pu déjà le raconter dans ce post précédent, l’envie d’être autre que ce que je suis m’a longtemps travaillée.  C’est affligeant parce que de l’extérieur, personne ne pourrait croire que moi j’ai un problème avec ce que je renvoie. Et pourtant… C’est d’ailleurs ce qui me pousse à m’intéresser aux questions liées au “body image” et d’estime de soi. Ca m’aide au quotidien à m’accepter.

DO WHAT FEELS GOOD

 Photos : Kirsten A. It’s crazy how weight is something I obsess about and see as an issue. Two days ago, I was horrified because I didn’t fit in my friend’s beautiful dress. Did I mention I had champagne and snacked a little ? In my eyes,  I’m always TOO thick . It’s the first time I am actually acknowledging my body image issues. And it’s been stuck with me for a while.  It was already the case 15 years ago when I was 54 kg. I wonder why I am so hard on myself ? I am sure I am not the only one it’s an issue for. So why not make it a conversation over on Multicolore Paris ? When it becomes an obsession… Focusing so much on my weight has become such an obsession,…

Happy Galentine’s day tutorial

Photo Source : https://www.readitforward.com/essay/article/books-to-read-galentines-day/ Happy Valentine’s Day to you ladies!  This holiday is either a hit or a or a date on the calendar that a bunch of single woman higly resent, reminding them of their unchosen single status . But it shouldn’t !  What if Valentine’s Day was time of the year we put ourselves first, even more than usual ? First of all.. where does Valentine’s Day come from ? Saint Valentine takes its origin from quite a romantic story, the story of Emperor Claude II, the Gothic (reassuring isn’t it?), who wanted to prohibit marriage to prevent men from being tempted to stay with their fiancées rather than going to war. But Valentin de Terni, did not hear it that way! This monk known as St Valentin, refused to submit to the authority of…

THANK YOU 2018 ! HELLO 2019 !

Avant, je vous souhaite à toutes une bonne et heureuse année 2019. Qu’elle soit synonyme de beaucoup d’amour, de joie, de prospérité et de vie pour vous et vos proches.  Une semaine après être passée à une nouvelle année, j’espère que vous avez bien fêté et que le retour à la réalité n’est pas trop rude. 2018 fut pour moi une année sous le signe de la réflexion et de la recherche d’un équilibre. De nature plutôt lunatique, c’est un état que j’ai toujours eu dû mal et à atteindre, et à préserver. Un bon point, je me suis beaucoup plus écoutée que je ne le faisais auparavant. J’ai pris mes besoins et envies, plus en compte.  Les conséquences furent sans appel : un retrait clair par rapport au blog (je ne savais plus trop ce…

THE PASSIONATES #4 : COLE HAAN PRESENTS EXTRAORDINARIES

Instagram has some super powers, I am telling you ! I identified this weeks’ new “Passionate” just by browsing through it. That’s how I got yo know about this initiative and decided that I would tell you more about it. I’ve never bought a Cole Haan product. I think my mother probably has in the past. I always find their products when I shop in department stores when I go to the US. That is where my story with Cole Haan started. Until now. Thanks to their new campaign  “ Extraordinaries“. They are our Passionates #4 of this week. I love the shift in communication they took. The way it feels,  it’s not so much about the products anymore but about the people wearing them. It was about time. To promote their latest collection, they tell a story,…

THE PASSIONATES #3 : SHONDA RHIMES

I started this column  “The passionates” because I figured that  as much as I need inspiration in my everyday life, someone else does to. There are so many inspiring people all around the world, in so many different fields the have the greatest of stories to tell,  that can push us to dream and more importantly help us achieve those dreams. Today, I am reviving this column by writing on a lady that owned her spot on american television. Her name is Shonda Rhimes. It all started when I was browsing on Facebook last week. I follow the page of her recent blog page called Shondaland, via which she and her team of women address many interesting topics inherent to women.  So on my Facebook was shared this article she wrote on the 300th episode of Grey’s Anatomy…

DISCOVERING LIGHTINTHEBOX.COM*

I couldn’t wait to see how those pictures turned out. Actually, we shouted (with Jeffry) while we waiting for the exits of a runway show during Paris Fashion Week. When juggling my memory, I think it was the Akris show. Well it all started in July when Light in the box, an asian e-shop contacted me to collaborate. It wasn’t a placed I shopped on or knew to be completely honest. After going through their site to judge if it could be interesting to talk about it with you, I accepted the offer, as I thought it’s a could tip get supply for accessories to complete outfits for a couple euros, bucks or pounds. I firmly believe in the fact that you don’t need big bucks to have a killer sense of style. You are…
