In the mood for some

Lovely weekend, foul weather, funny mood. Benoist told me on friday night that I should post more mp3's, so there you go!
These tracks are so fierce, they just make me want to cause some shit with the girls that hit on my bf at parties.B Beat Girls "For the Same Man"
Klymaxx "Meeting in the Ladies Room"
ESG "Erase You"
Anna Bell "La Moustache à Papa"

Back with a vengeance

Check this out. Me and A.B getting papped spinning hot tunes at the Vortex last friday.

Oh yeah I'm back in Paris after a week in London. Happy but a bit sad to leave as usual-this week has been good though: old friends, good times, good food (I might be £200 lighter, but certainly 4lbs heavier!).And then there was this jacket. So perfect that when I stopped it I couldn't care less for anything else in the shop. I know it's gonna be a summer essential already.

Londres-la suite



Still in London my friends. Most of the time it sucks to have a boyfriend who lives on the other side of the Channel, but then I think, maybe it's not so bad cos at least I still can come to London quite often and see what's happening.
















So far so good, finally I bought some interesting clothes which I'll be able to show later. A blazer, and a dress, both from Topshop, and not in the sales.
Typical.


At least I get to eat interesting food here, turkish, vietnamese, London does know how to rip someone's diet to shreds.

Need to get my bikini body ready for Martinique in July!

Londres


Oh my I think I've really arrived too late to get anything good in the sales. Only bad jeans and skirts left in topshop, piles of crap in Urban Outfitters, and Primark, where there isn't much reduced obviously, is disappointing.So far all I've bagged is this pair of fake wayfarers-my favourite kind!
And when A.B is at work I have plenty of time to steal his t-shirts and cardigans. Awesome babes.

Across the fucking universe baby


Finally I had time to sit down and watch the Justice dvd. It's 60 mins long and a bit of a lol-fest, featuring your usual sex and drugs and violence and of course american apparel clad groupies.
But then the live scenes are really intense and I had the sound on really loud and just enjoyed the show. Also, someone takes me to Coachella festival sometimes with a vip pass?
The best bits are probably the sight of Gaspard and Xavier kissing Gaspard's cross/each other before going on stage. I'm sorry but so homo-erotic and kind of hot.

Now listen to this shit, relax, and enjoy the bangerrrr

Short-circuit

Hiya.

First press play.

TTC "Cé Pou Vou"




I'm sorry but this tune just smells like summer.It's like 3 degrees and now the temperature has finally risen above zero all we can think about is spring and floral dresses and thin blazers and no-tights nights.




In the meantime warm up with good bangers and cups of cocoa; I will see you on a packed dancefloor soon though, this post xmas laziness has to stop now, I need to start going out again and nod my head to good music all night!

I just can't get enough


Why the smirk on my face you must be thinking.

Well, it's mostly due to five little letters that resonate in every French girl's head like the promise of long and sweet summer days...

B.I.L.L.Y.
The Billy bag by Jérôme Dreyfuss.
A name that outside of France might not mean much but which has caused a storm amongst French bloggers for a while and I must say that like everyone else I fell in love with it, and like a sheep I finally got my hands on one.
And I don't care and I'm happy.

Last summer I could not justify the 500 euros price tag...But we are in 2009 now my friends and thanks to the sales and the post-xmas money, and err thanks to the sales again, Billy could finally be mine!

And fuck it, you know me well, I usually love my primark and cheap shit but at 25 I
thought it was time that I got a real lady bag.A bag so amazing that it needed a new dress and a haircut to go with it of course....

Nasty girls dance! dance! dance!



Recently I was browsing through my Itunes and I thought there was something missing...I had a computer stolen in 2005 you see, so a lot of my music had disappeared at the time.

Then I thought, Vanity 6! I hadn't heard "Nasty Girl" in aaaaaages so I immediately downloaded it (ok downloading is bad, but I have the 7" too, so it doesn't count right?) then got in the mood to get dressed up and dance to some disco at Social Club with A.B
.

on the same theme: Donna Summer "Bad Girls"

The first monday of january...

...is when everything starts again. The diet, the gym memberships, the usual magazines, the upcoming sales (au fait, si quelqu'un voit les bottes 'marantes' chez André en 40 en beige, j'ai l'impression qu'elles ont déja disparu des stocks...faites moi signe!), the good resolutions, the coffee without cigarettes, the wineless meals, the job-hunting...

Happy New Year!
