À quelque chose malheur est bon. Every cloud has a silver lining...if you can't go to France, bring France to your home.
Wear: Something French and fabulous! If I had on one of these French inspired outfits, my day would surely be wonderful! Kate Spade has a French flair with a great sense of humor...especially this season. I love the Pardon My French and Joie de Vivre shirts. Anything striped seems French to me...bien sur! Stripes never go out of style. I love the color contrast on the Madewell shirt and the simplicity of the striped dress.
Use: Paper that makes you smile. Wouldn't you love to receive one of these merci or global greeting cards in your mailbox. The cities calendar will be a treat to use for the coming new year.
Tout arrive en France. (Everything happens in France) ~François de La RochefoucauldRead: When I need an escape, I tell my friends and family, "I'm going to France!" I do go to France...through books! These books make me happy: At My French Table, French Essence and Lunch in Paris.
Toute chose appartient à qui sait en jouir. (Everything belongs to those who can appreciate it) ~André Gide
Listen: To French Cafe Radio on Pandora and hear music from Pink Martini, Nina Simone, Madeleine Peyroux...jazzy artists that will have you imagining you're in France as you clean your house.
Buy: It's the little things in life that make us smile! I love a rainy day when I can carry my red Merde il Pleut umbrella. The merde pillow is a happy little accent to any chair. Who wouldn't love to open this box of colorful macaroons?
Shit always sounds better in French!
Pardon my French :)
