Vanessa Paradis…Go Girl

I don’t often write about Vanessa Paradis (but I have a fair amount of photos of her on Pinterest)…yet if there is ONE person in the whole world, I’m a massive fan, it’s her and for many reasons. Elodie and I ‘grew up’ with her…Vanessa is three years younger than me and two years older than Elodie.She was only 14 years old when she became internationally famous with her Joe Le Taxi song (which is still a nice catchy song but far from being her best song) and considering how people who encounter massive success at a young age often go off the tangent, she did pretty well. I love her because over the years she has made some very good artistic choices and worked with a lot of people I love and admire.…Lenny Kravitz and I remember the the front cover of the album shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino…Serge Gainsbourg…Matthiew Chedid…Benjamin BiolayAll incredible song writers and poets.Her beautiful duo with Jeanne Moreau (another amazing lady) at the Cannes Film Festival is one of my favourite …

Styling masterclass with Anouk B | Joyeuse Clique

20 bloggers… 5 nationalities… 2 days in Pernes-Les-Fontaines… 1 concept store as a playground = First blogger session organised by Joyeuse Clique at La Maison Pernoise which was just brilliant and definitively the best blogger meeting I’ve attended.The styling workshop was run by Anouk B who I absolutely adore but working, sleeping with her (we shared a bedroom) and talking with her about branding, styling, life etc… took my love for her to the next level (and dont get me started on her jumpsuit!) SLOW DESIGN | SLOW FOODING Developed around the aesthetics of the beautiful KINFOLK diners, our task on day one, was to style a table for the 50 guests coming for diner in the evening. I’m not sure if my photos are a credit to the final result but it was beautiful and so was the food prepared by Mistral Gagnant Food Truck. TRENDS STYLING Day 2: Anouk talked us through the various trends for 2014/2015 and then we have to pick one theme to style. I chose African Indigo…You can see …

WISHLIST 01 | 2014

Despite trying to be my usual upbeat and positive self here, it has been one of the most difficult week at work for various reasons so I’m relishing flying off to France this morning to attend a styling workshop with Anouk at La Maison Pernoise and have a bit of a break. As I will be missing Liberty’s in-store event on Thursday, I’ve put together some of my favourite pieces… 1/ Mini Light Blue Stitch Leather Bag by Victoria Beckham (check this two-tone zip clutch too) 2/ Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates 3/ Aesop (the whole collection will do thanks very much) 4/ Red Buenos Aires Zip Front Jacket (I love Sessùn!)5/ Christine Mini Heart Print Trousers by Stella McCartney 6/ Phillip Lim Medium Black Wednesday Boston bag 7/ Wedge trainers by ASH (must-have to go with jumpsuits here) Oh and two more things… I’m doing a 30 days-30 ways green smoothies challenge and we are having a Mini Spring Sale in the shop to  make room for the new collection but things are selling out fast and most of it, won’t come back in stock.
