New Mom – Nouvelle vie?

Hanging out in Paris

I have been on a “blogger’s block” lately. My Mom came home to visit the baby for a long weekend, my sister is getting married in less than 10 days (I haven’t even started my Maid of Honor’s speech…), and I haven’t been feeling “inspired” for a little bit. Then, I got the chance to work with an amazing French blogger that I love, “Gisele is Nerdy”. I did a 150 euro challenge for her blog and answering her questions…

Paris Je T’aime

Paris the city of love

I consider myself to be a very fortunate person. I’m healthy, I have an amazing husband, a beautiful healthy baby boy, and I’m living my dreams; I live in Paris. Well actually in the suburbs, but still, pretty amazing right?! After 7 years I’m still amazed whenever I see the Eiffel Tower and I’m grateful that my dreams came true. I’ll probably talk a bit more about how I moved here in another blog post, what do you think? I…

Oh OUAI! Haircare Review 

Ouai-Haircare-review

I am excited about this post because I was finally able to test a few products from Jen Atkin’s haircare line “Ouai“. Jen is the hairstylist of plenty fabulous hair owners like Jenna Dewan-Tatum, the Kardash-Jenner gals, and Chrissy Teigen, just to name a few. I was a bit hesitant at the beginning because come on, those girls have naturally nice hair (I am not taking into consideration the hair extensions though) but then I thought that when a known…

Manicura Gel à la maison

UV Manicure

Les ha pasado que se hacen la manicura pero el esmalte no les dura ni 2 días? Y cuanto dinero no se gasta en las manicuras gel en el salón? Bueno, gracias al esposo de Marti – que le regaló un kit de manicura de gel – pudimos probar la manicura de gel en casa. Es fácil de hacer y se tarda entre 30 y 40 minutos. Si les gusta hacerse la manicura ustedes mismas, esto es ideal. Ahora, si…

Quicky Brownies

Yummy brownies

Have you ever had a crazy need for chocolate (or anything sweet for that matter)? Well, if you don’t want to feel “guilty” about eating 3 brownies in one seating you have come to the right place.  If you don’t care about feeling guilty, you have also come to the right place – life is too short so eat whatever you want! What I really like about this recipe is that it’s egg-free, so you can eat as much “brownie…

Les 2 Sis and Lola

For this post we had the honor and pleasure of interviewing not only a very special and amazing friend but also a world traveler who loves to share her experiences in her blog called Lola’s Passage.  Natalie is from Puerto Rico; she currently lives in New York City and works as an attorney, but don’t let that fool you because she still manages to travel all over the world whenever possible. I met Natalie back in college (2002 I think)…

My First Mother’s Day

Happy-Mom

I am the happiest woman today. This year I am celebrating my first Mother’s day. I felt more excited to celebrate this day than any other birthday.

Being a Mom has been such an amazing new phase of my life, I must admit that it was not easy the first weeks as I didn’t feeel I had what the call it “Mother’s instinct”. I even felt guilty at…

Last Pregnancy Post

I was supposed to write this article as the “last pregnancy post”; I actually started writing it 3 days before I gave birth…you can imagine why I haven’t done anything since then. A baby does take a lot of  time and whenever I have some of it I either use it to rest, to spend time with my husband, or to organize the house. Which is why  the blog has been left aside for a little bit. This will be a very short…

My Pregnancy Must Haves

35 weeks pregnant

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything on the blog but I’ve been on a zero inspiration path. But I’m back and ready to continue, and it is the most important thing for me. As many of you know, I’m pregnant – currently very pregnant (on my last trimester) and I thought it’ll be a good idea to have an article about the things I’ve used and loved the most during the pregnancy. Ça fait un moment que…
