Five senses #6

· Decoration, Fashion, Food

Here is a new “Five senses” article because the Christmas period, which is coming soon (one month to go!), is a good opportunity to use our five senses, isn’t it?

Old family recipe

· Decoration, Food

My grandmother’s recipe is a bit exotic but considering my Vietnamese origins, my Bà ngoại (= mother’s mother in Vietnamese) was more used to prepare asian meal rather than occidental food (although I remember a chicken marengo and “bouchées à la reine” prepared with love). This Vietnamese Grand-ma porridge, on top of being yummy, is … Read more

When people ask me what I love so much about Japan, I have a thousand answers. I love the japanese culture and heritage, but I’m especially appreciative of their refined, detailed and sometimes a bit crazy state of mind.

Treasures of Instagram

The most important is to be aware of it and try to not trust … Read more

On my balcony

Our balcony is a tiny space, about 5m2, looking at a rear-courtyard and facing others building (only advantages, haha).   Exotic inspiration … Read more

Frames of life

Lately we’ve been looking for a refined style, less childish, with more green (influenced by Bali?). When Desenio offered me to choose posters from their selections, I thought it … Read more

Simple pleasures

Lately, this never ending winter season is not very helpful to boost our moral. On my side, I’ve been trying to find some tricks to avoid gloominess as much as possible. Actually, I think the more I move forward in the years (let’s not be afraid of the words, “the more I get old”), the … Read more

I had promised you a recap of my lash-extension experience at Les Cils de Marie in November, here it is!
