On track

Aaah Paris and its beautiful river banks... What else is nicer than a long walk at sunset in the warm breeze?

Okay okay I'll stop talking like I'm describing a postcard now, but sometimes I have to stop to look around and realise for the 1000th times that Paris is such a pretty town.
I loved London and there were some places where I enjoyed spending time like the Barbican, or the South Bank, but I don't know, it never really felt the same.
Which I guess is not a bad thing.

I've kind of given up finding an interesting job anytime soon so I'm sticking to my mcjob for now(yes I know, I'm a receptionist) and concentrating on something altogether more fun...summer holidays!
So far for june/july I have lined up a trip à deux to South-West France, Barcelona for Sonar Festival, then the Caribbean to spend three weeks with granny. Can't wait!

Coquillages et crustacés

Is it summer yet? It feels like it anyway!
I haven't been shopping in a million years (thanks credit crunch) so at the moment all I can do is unearth old treasures from my wardrobe.

I finally settled properly into my flat, put up some frames, arranged my books, bought flowers. There's still lots of things to do but at least I have a real place to call home now.

Party time bientôt les amis!

I am sorry I haven't been updating as much as I should but I'm so busy juggling a crap temping job, sessions at the gym, cocktails with friends, nights of junk food+ tv, lunches with the family... You know the deal!

she's gotta have it baby!

I can't believe I had never watched "She's gotta have it" before! Sunday was spent being all cozy making jokes and eating sushi and this is when Spike Lee's film came on the menu. Well on the pay-per view menu to be precise.

Nola Darling is a strong black woman juggling three lovers at once in the cool pre-Starbucks/American Apparel Brooklyn of the 80's. Her wardrobe is all I want for summer and the soundtrack is banging. What's not to love?

Go home now and watch it!

Some fitness inspiration for you...

or how to be a fit bitch.
(ps: Amber Rose is so my new girl crush)

Now excuse me but I'm off to the gym!
