Femmes a lunettes

This isn't really a secret, I just love sunglasses. So when I saw this mixed lot of retro glasses/sunglasses on ebay I just couldn't resist...I was the only bidder and it only cost me 10 euros! So here they are:

-Obvious nerdy glasses, might get them made to my prescription
-Aviators, my very first pair! -These ones are cool cos you can wear them at night and still see. Ok and look like a douchebag at the same time but who cares. -Reminds me of pictures of my granny on holiday in Italy in the 60's. -And these are the ones that simply don't look too good on me. And you, are you crazy about sunglasses too and wear them as soon as there's the slightest ray of sun??

Jaune moutarde

Not long ago Garance Doré posted this photo of a cool look with yellow tights. I think I'm not the only one who got inspired by it since Miss Woo also re-created it. So on Saturday I gave it go. Maybe next time I'll dare to wear the tights in Paris and brave the funny looks...

Monday's manjoyment IV

Okay I am clearly reminiscing here: it was the 90's, I was a teenager, I loved indie music and Stephen Malkmus (after Damon Albarn of course) was my idol...Anyone else?

Je me fatigue

Too busy at the moment with uni and the work placement and going to the gym 4 times a week and the diet and the bloody essay writing. . . This weekend I want to drink then lie in bed then eat brunch and read books and watch all the dvd’s I’ve just bought on ebay or not do anything at all but that’s gonna happen. . .
Stressful essay writing time means the smoking has come back with a vengeance.

Monday's manjoyment III

This week ladies I present Para One, I must say it is a bit of a personal one but I couldn't resist. King of bangers on Institubes records, I don't know, it must be the ski instructor look that seduces and intrigues.
Not too much into bangers? Try his soundtrack for "Naissance des Pieuvres".

Isn't it obvious?

Happy fucking Valentine's day.
Excuse my bitterness, but even the years when I haven't been single I always found it really irritating, plus I don't even like roses that much.
So to calm down, and in 'high fidelity' style, I have decided to share with you this special Heartbreak Playlist. If I'm in good spirits all these tracks remind me of happy times but if I'm feeling a bit down then it's tears a-go go as they are also associated with breakups, things that never happened or shouldn't have happened, and moments that will never return....
Enjoy! (ps: as I made this I probably cried 100 times and there are tracks that I still can't listen to in full...)

1-Belle & Sebastian “Is it wicked not to care”
I was 16, you 21, you put the vinyl on and lit some candles, I never found the right words and nothing ever happened, but at least we are still friends.

2-Pulp "Babies"
Strange, I'm not sure why it all went wrong...

3-Kraftwerk "Metal on Metal"
Probably the weirdest night ever.

4-Sonic Youth "Wish Fulfillment"
2002: You broke my heart big time you idiot!

5-The Smiths "There's a light that never goes out"
Who else thinks that this is a tearjerker?

6-Joy Division "New Dawn Fades"
2003: I was probably having the shittiest time ever. (So i went to New York for 3 months and came back all happy with an extra 20 kilos,yay!)

7-Air "Playground Love"
Sometimes I have to hate Air.

8-Phoenix "If I ever feel better"
2005, the dancefloor of "..Our Disco".

9-The Klaxons "It's not over yet"
Or is it?

Boo. Sniff. I have to go back to London tonight, once again and it's blah. Paris was so much fun and I had Japanese food like 4 times in 5 days. Not sure what I'm going to do this weekend, but I'm not going to Slash or the Tent St party, it's shame cos there's some people i don't mind talking to, but there's also some I'd better avoid so I can actually love my life again.
Phantomas says
free your mind and your ass will follow, hell yeah, London is going to be what I make of it, so in the next few days I'd better ring the right people. It used to be fun!

Monday's manjoyment II

Et oui, I am still in Paris, still smoking cheap cigarettes so I thought it'd make sense to talk more about Louis Garrel. He's hot in that quirky, sad sexy eyes kind of way. He's well buff and I know I'm not the only one who thinks so...

Good morning Paris

Paname c'est le kiffe non quand même? A peine tu debarques de l'eurostar que le portable commencer a bipper comme un fou:
"yo kes tu fé on pren 1 kfé o ptit chat?"
"ok sista jariv jme pose sur la terace kom dab dac?'
Rendez-vous est pris au "Petit Chat" (rue st-denis pour ceux qui connaissent pas), la sister en question est en retard of course, coca light pour moi, enfin le paquet de lucky salvateur, trop cher les clopes a londres, marre de taxer des roulées a l'ex boyfriend.

Avec le café bah bien sûr viennent les potins, debriefing des dernières soirées, bah non pas grand chose a signaler, london sucks, nobody cares, personne en vue, le calme plat quoi.
Et puis y'a l'apéro.

Ce matin, réveil en douceur, glorious sun, ma filleule de 9 ans, ma mini-me pour la journée reclame son petit dej, pas de bol, tata a les placards vides, du coup branche toi sur 30 minutes que je te fasse des crêpes.
It was a good day.

Should I go for the chop?

So Rihanna got a new haircut and actually learnt (sort of) how to dress. How am I supposed to keep up woman?!
Paris tomorrow, can't fucking wait.

Monday's manjoyment

Yeah I watched "Paris je t'aime" and damnit I had forgotten that Gaspard Ulliel was smoking hot. See the evidence for yourselves.
I think the Monday's manjoyment should become a permanent fixture to help start the week nicely.
