WHITES 06 | 2014

Gosh I love a Bank Holidays weekend!!Besides the obvious 3-day weekend, I love the delightful, exciting feeling that we are skiving work on Monday and have an extra day to potter around our homes and do some creative things… And pottering around is definitively what I’m going to do this weekend.We are finally starting the renovations in our home in 2 weeks (yeah!!!) so this weekend, the boys are taking our kitchen apart and I will clear our home further (expect a few things to pop up on Instagram and Ebay!) Talking about clearing, my sister sent me this article from Oprah Does this clutter make my butt look fat?. Being an emotional eater, it stroke a few chords with me but it also has some interesting points about how we hang onto things of the past and clutter our lives with old emotions.It is true, isn’t it!?Since January, I have been clearing things we’ve accumulated for the past 9 years when Mila was born. Although I noticed that sometimes throwing stuff, was raising a great …

WHITES 05 | 2014

We are at the beach…I don’t want to rub it in for those of you who are stuck in the city, but gosh it feels good to have a break and I really needed one. I’ve only packed Summer stuff… white t-shirts, an old pair of converse, denim shorts, Mila’s new denim jumpsuit and mine (to try to make a Mother/Daughter portrait in Denim) and my new Nutribullet (yes I know…I travel light…not but I wanted to carry on doing this 30 days smoothie challenge).I really hope the weather is going to live to MY expectations for the next couple of weeks… 1.

WHITES 03 | 2014

Last night Mila asked me: “Maman can I live with you until I have a big house”…I swear I love her a lot more than to the moon and back. It’s little moments that like these that remind me that being a mum is still the most important thing ever, no matter how much I love what I do career wise…And I say I because it’s such a sensitive subject and a personal choice that don’t want to generalise, everyone is different but I know a lot of you are in the same boat and will understand what I mean.Do you keep notes of all the wonderful things your children say? // 1.

Crush on Hannah Lemholt’s photography, NYC, The Simple Things…

We’re off to HERE (Hell yeah!) on Friday and as usual I’m trying to fit a 5-day week into a 4-day week without getting stressed out, organising the photo shoots we will be doing for The Simple Things magazine, preparing my meeting with my Publishing Agent (read the great news here) and organising our family holidays…Well, it’s not really working out…. I’m mega super stressed this afternoon but it’s OK. I know I’ll feel like a little Buddha after Bikram Yoga (last night I managed the toe stand pose for the first time in 2 months) and I will eventually get things done right on time (or kind of).I had this big plan to schedule wonderful, inspiring posts for you guys next week but let’s face it…it’s not gonna happen :-))) I may be able to schedule 1 or 2 in advance if I’m lucky but next week, I’ll probably more on Instagram than behind the laptop writing blog posts.In fact, I’m not even sure I can be bothered to take my laptop with me! These past few years, …

Don’t you think social media made you more creative?

While building my Pinterest folder searching for inspiring ideas for my home and our first mail order catalogue, I came across these beautiful images taken by Lars Botten.It may take a few years before I take nice shots like this but I realized this afternoon that I’m looking at photography, fashion and creative inspiration in a complete different way than I used to, let’s say before starting blogging.Nowadays, I will look at the light of a photo or the stylism, I will try to imagine how I could replicate a similar atmosphere or setting in my own photos.I think that even if some still think that social media a fad – although I think its more down to the fact that something better comes along on the market like Pinterest and we just move on with the next best thing because it’s quicker and easier to use – blogging, facebook, Tumblr and now Pinterest have made us all a lot more creative and have made us better at writing, sewing, styling or taking photography, whatever …
