Coming Soon

   I have been thinking about this for a couple of months now. The blog will undergo few changes and I will do my best to put it back up asap. There has been a lot going on for me since the beginning of the year. Good and bad so it might just be the right time to do this, I guess ! My old posts will stay online and I will be sharing bits on social media in the meantime.  Let's catch up soon !

  Ça fait un moment que j'y pensais alors je passe à l'action. Sachant que l'heure est aux bouleversements depuis ce début d'année, je vais en profiter pour refaire une beauté à ce petit blog. Les anciens articles resteront en ligne en attendant et vous pouvez me retrouver sur divers réseaux sociaux. À très vite !

My Tartan Coat

  You can't even imagine how much I love this coat. I usually go for more simple designs when I buy my coats but this time I could not resist the combination of tartan and faux leather sleeves. I was not sure about the fur collar no matter how faux it is but actually as a whole, this item is both bold and elegant. Sometimes Primark brings us its share of good surprises but the only drawback is that you can only wear it when it's mild outside or with plenty of layers in cold weather. That being said I think this is the coolest winter coat I've had in years !

  Vous n'imaginez pas à quel point j'aime ce manteau. C'est vrai que je porte généralement des manteaux très simples mais je n'ai pas pu résister à l'imprimé tartan et ses manches en faux cuir. L'encolure en fausse fourrure quant à elle me laissait un dubitative car j'avais peur que ça fasse un peu trop mais finalement, l'ensemble est parfaitement équilibré. Il a tout ce qu'il faut d'élégance et d'originalité. Primark sait comment nous surprendre mais si je n'ai jamais craqué pour un manteau chez eux, c'est bien parce que parfois Primark a un peu la main lourde sur les détails et surtout, frileuse comme je suis, mon choix se porte en priorité vers ce qui me tiendra chaud. Alors une fois n'est pas coutume j'ai craqué  mais en septembre dernier, les températures étaient un peu plus clémentes alors je ne le sors seulement lorsque les journées hivernales sont un peu plus douces. Malgré ce petit inconvénient, je crois que c'est le manteau le plus cool que j'ai eu à porter.

Moving Forward

Shot by Ortie

   Here we are, 2014 is here. A time for changes and renewal. I have never been much of a resolution person but I like that special atmosphere of positive thinking that comes with a new year. These last six months have been particularly rough on me so my main plan for 2014 is to be in good health and happy. Happy with the decisions I make. I will have to go through the ups and downs regardless of my decisions so I just want to make things I have at heart finally happen and to be fully conscious of why they are happening. I am still learning how to deal with my doubts and my expectations. I am also learning to dismiss what the others expect from me. I have a lot of plans in this lovely head of mine and I will have to go through life changing events in just few weeks. Everything will not go according to plan and it is also part of the process. The only thing I have to keep in mind is that I am the source of the positive and the negative. After all thoughts become things and all I have to do is to choose the good ones.

   I wish you all a very prosperous and happy year 2014. Starting new is not even necessary. When you think about it, every day follows on what was already there. You are ever-evolving individuals. Fresh starts are not important, being happy is. Being happy with who you are and the choices you make. Love yourself, the good and bad. Love yourself with all of your perfect imperfections and everything else will follow.
