THE GIRL WHO NEVER STOPPED PLAYING DRESS-UP

Happy Bastille Day !

Happy Bastille Day !

Hope you were able to do something French today as an homage to Bastille day which 225 years ago, dramatically altered  the course of the human history.

There are  so many “French things” to experience  that it is challenging  to choose from: French fashion, French fries. French songs , French kisses…

Mad Men inspiration

Man Men TV series ended, with it my reason to ever watch TV. I absolutely loved the show:from its writing to the costumes, everything was great!  This last season I fully watched on the iTunes. It’s ending made me think more about the relevance of television in general.

I feel TV in its traditional sense is dead and online media is slowly but surely is taking its place: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon,…

Easter, Steve Jobs and Facebook

I don’t watch a lot of TV these days, since I only have Netflix, and I normally don’t watch it either for the lack of time,  so when I finally got time this weekend, I went on a “movie binge” and watched  2 movies back to back!

I watched Steve Jobs and The Social Network (both for the first time I must say).

Loved both movies!

Not because of cinematography or costumes, that I usually gravitate…

Does Train ride induces creativity?

Everyone has their favorite place to write: it might be at that little table in Starbucks, in the bathtub, in the car; at the office…favorite places are as many as there are people.

Health Thursday: Relaxing baths

Health Thursday: Relaxing baths

One of the best ways to pumper yourself is to take a bath, put on a nice music  and light up some candles. Warm water helps muscles to relax . Relaxed muscles send signal to the brain, that “everything is fine you can relax” and brain follows the body and slowly calms down.

The whole experience can only improve by adding some aromatic salts into the water.

Here is one of my favorite  DIY recipes…

Time Management Monday: Start With Why

Time Management Monday: Start With Why

A great book I’ve been reading lately is START WITH WHY by Simon Sinek.  It’s great for business owners or just people looking to make an impact in the world.

He goes through various examples of famous people or companies and why they are more profitable, have loyal customers and have repeated success compared to other companies.  He talks about defining WHY you are doing something and using that…

Sunday Inspiration

Sunday Inspiration is a time to rest, reflect and appreciate what’s around us.

For this week I have quote from Theodore Roosevelt: ”Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”

It’s easy to give up when doubt stares you in the face.  But just remember that believing you can do something is half that battle.  I find that once I believe in something, it is easier to motivate myself to do it.  And the…
