A guide, some tips and fun stuff for girls in Paris

“You don’t have to be French to be a Parisian.“    —Karl Lagerfeld That, coming from Karl Lagerfeld about Paris and Parisians, is as good as quoting God from the Bible, (and even more important, cause Karl is HERE) so I'm gonna take his word for it. As for you other almost Parisians, whether you plan… Continue reading A guide, some tips and fun stuff for girls in Paris


I Watched “Fifty Shades Of Grey”

There may be spoilers below, but who cares. I didn't read the book. I might decide to endure it, though, for the same perverted reasons I decided to watch the movie. The word 'perverted' here, is in no way related to the subject covered in the film. It means 'being completely aware that you'll have… Continue reading I Watched “Fifty Shades Of Grey”


How To Shop For Shoes

Need new shoes? Why not do what I do. 1. Get up in the morning and have your coffee. 2. Forget to eat. 3. Put on leggings because they're easy for trying on shoes, but forget that you'll need to try on shoes and wear the heaviest boots you have, that are hardest to take off.… Continue reading How To Shop For Shoes


Interior Design: I’d LOVE to think inside THIS box!

A few things in this world amaze me to the point of batting my eye-lashes dreamily and thinking how well they would go with my life, whatever they are. Interior design, that is, smart, crafty and FANTASTIC interior design is one of those things. A few days ago, I discovered this BOX thingy, and I… Continue reading Interior Design: I’d LOVE to think inside THIS box!


XEVANA: Stop Everything, because I found my new most favorite jewelry in the world.

You have no idea how hard it is for a person with such picky taste for jewelry to name one product that can be called a favorite. Browsing blogs, and Instagrams, I found Xevana, and immediately had a 'where have you been all my life' experience. And product after product, piece after piece, it never stops… Continue reading XEVANA: Stop Everything, because I found my new most favorite jewelry in the world.


I Watched ‘Love Is Strange’.

Oh, this was a sad movie. No, I'm not spoiling anything, my overall impression has nothing to do with an ending, or a specific event in the script, I just had to say, it's sad. There's an air of melancholy that I didn't expect (which is totally my fault since I only finished re-watching Third… Continue reading I Watched ‘Love Is Strange’.


Girl Hacks, Part Un.

Some things in life can be totally annoying. Even more annoying for women. While I believe these are things that everybody knows, I also know that sometimes one needs yet another reminder to start doing them. I know I do. 1. Always have black  nail polish in your purse. Let's imagine: You're all dressed up, hair and… Continue reading Girl Hacks, Part Un.


Working From Home: Why I Love It

I went through my studies without a clear picture about what I wanted to do. When I finally received my diploma, everyone thought that I'll just go on to become what the diploma said I was, but I somehow... Didn't want to 🙂 So one day, sitting at home, I made a small wish, to be… Continue reading Working From Home: Why I Love It


I watched ‘Gone Girl’

This will be a short review, because the movie speaks for itself, and it's probably one of the best thrillers I've seen in the past ten years. Everyone involved did a fantastic job. Ben Affleck was never one of my favorite actors, even though I've always found him very good, but here, he simply nailed… Continue reading I watched ‘Gone Girl’


Writing A Good Review

After I stepped into the writing world, I learned a huge number of things about the industry, the authors, Amazon and... reviews. I spent hours browsing for my peers' work, reading review after review, and honestly, most of the time, I felt kind of confused and with a single question dancing in my head: Why… Continue reading Writing A Good Review


Do’s and Don’ts in Paris.

Sure, we all know where to go, when planning a trip to Paris. Sure, it takes a lot longer than a week to take in all the beauty (and to visit all the places) and more than a lifetime to actually get enough of it. But if you're there for a short period of time,… Continue reading Do’s and Don’ts in Paris.

Boots To Kill For.

Knees trembling, losing track of time and space, the tiny (or not so tiny) orgasm, the phrase I NEED YOU, exploding in your head like fireworks. No this isn't the beginning of a romance novel, it's #allthefeels when its majesty, the perfect boot, is presented before our eyes. And since the upcoming season has so… Continue reading Boots To Kill For.


American Horror Story ‘Freakshow’ Premiere

Oh, my God, they're back. Is it just me, or the premiere wasn't as thrilling as expected? Were our expectations too high? (Damn right, we got used to utter awesomeness) Yes, it was impossibly cool because now all the characters/actors feel like home. Yes, it was disgusting and scary and creepy (that home-made porn movie,… Continue reading American Horror Story ‘Freakshow’ Premiere

Okay, we really need more Moschino bags. Like, seriously.

Remember the most perfectest (it's an expression!) Barbie pink bag from my previous post? Well, I don't know how I missed them, but there's a black one and a red one. Of course, this requires a whole new post about Moschino bags, simply dedicated to them. It is necessary to just feast our eyes on… Continue reading Okay, we really need more Moschino bags.

Did you see Moschino’s Barbie Collection?

Oh, my God, I'M DYING HERE! So clever and so fun, I haven't had this much fun watching the runway for ages. All those clothes, the little details, they look exactly like the ones I dressed my Barbies in! Remember saying 'Why can't there be Barbie clothes for my size?' And there was, some pink… Continue reading Did you see Moschino’s Barbie Collection?


Things that suck in the Writing Community, or Why we are all dicks with self-promotion.

Okay, after a short while in the writing community, I am really grateful about how much I learned. I learned about myself, my writing habits, my writing mood and what interests me. I learned not to accept every possible manuscript exchange for an honest review. I learned new fancy writing words. And many more I… Continue reading Things that suck in the Writing Community, or Why we are all dicks with self-promotion.
