Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!
It’s the perfect day to take the time to celebrate love in your life.
Single? I know you love yourself! So treat yourself…you deserve it of course.
In a couple? You may think that Valentine’s day is just another holiday and it’s not important and you don’t want to celebrate it. But make the effort, make it extra romantic and celebrate your love for each other. It may be tacky or whatever but if you make the effort to make it the most romantic day ever I am sure you will come home at the end of the night, knowing that next year you want to make it even bigger and better!
So everyone! I am a working woman now and it feels SO SO SO SO GOOD! Even though some tasks are quite repetitive sometimes, it’s fun to be in constant contact with people and feeling like I’m contributing myself some way to society!
Check out my work outfits. And my messy hair!
I don’t actually wear that red hat in work but yes, on colder days, I wear it too work! Cause I’m bold!
Two of those shoes are new…can you guess which ones?
It feels great to be back on my blog. I think I can finally get into the swing of my life again now that I’ve officially settled in!
Clearly I’m super happy and excited as you can see from all of the exclamation marks!
The first night we splurged and went to a dreamy bed and breakfast which I would highly recommend to everyone wanting to visit the Cote D’Azur…the trip continued with camping and even a night sleeping in the car! But more on that later…first, enjoy our b&b. It was so impressive that I thought it deserved an entire post to itself.
Our room opened right the the outdoors with a view of the landscape. We made sure not to stray far from it while we were there because we only booked one night in this paradise, although we did stray 7 km down the winding road for some dinner!
Can’t wait to visit all of your blogs again! And only 1 more week until I’m back in Canada!
P.s. this dress is one of my creations…
Here is the 2nd dress I made recently! I’ve worn it approximately 2571 times since I finished it’s final stitch. Sewing is all I have been doing lately. It just feels so good! The kitchen is begging me to come back, my blog is praying that I’ll give her some attention but clearly the sewing machine has won my heart for the time being.
I have more dresses to come so hold on to your knickers!
I made this dress! It was fun! Now I’m making a second dress and it’s keeping me so so busy but I love it! Watching all of the Harry Potter movies for the first time in my life is also keeping me busy…The yet to be read books are on my to do list now. So good!
I wore this outfit to look professional and head over to the department of immigration to see what my options are for staying in France. That ended up being all of five minute long because they had no information for us other than to call somewhere else. But I love knowing that there is a “next step” because there is nothing worse than really having no idea what the next action is to take when you know you must take one!
My grandparents are Italian so I will obtain an Italian citizenship. It’s taking a little longer than expected so I am looking for alternative solutions because who really ever wants to be in a long distance relationship. And I freaking LOVE France!
Thank you all for you continued support and comments on my blog recently and have an amazing weekend!!

I know, that is probably not what you were expecting to hear but Max has been obsessing over motorcycles and his love for them and how badly he wants one since I met him and I’ve always been doubtful, thinking, “If he gets one he will defintely get hurt.” But yesterdat after I arrived home, I realized that they are just like any vehicle and it really comes down to the driver. If the driver is reckless and taking too many risks, one time those risks will come back to haunt them, but if the driver is modest and responsible, their is no harm done.
I was laughing my brains out the entire time!
And p.s. I bought this entire outfit for only 12 Euro at the market here. 5 for each the dress and the shoes and 2 for the belt.
When I started this blog I had no idea that months later I’d be posting pictures of outfits that I wear. I guess it was inevitable though. I went to school for fashion a few years ago and have always had some interest in the subject. And now that I live in France, I can’t deny myself any further.
In these pictures, although you cannot see it, I did a great Bridget Bardot “flick” eye. Here is the link the the awesome tutorial.
I wore this to an open bar end-of-year party held by Max’s school. The party was gross and I came home with a beer-soaked dress, sticky legs, and disgusting shoes.That’s just not my scene.
Although it was so much fun to dance and finally wear this dress that I bought in London back in January!

Last week I sent out a little request to some of the people in my life asking them what they want me to write about. I wanted to know what it is that they would stop to read and what it is that they could read that could help them.
I have a list of very interesting topics that I’ll be posting about over the next few weeks (and then hopefully that list renews)!
One of my friends has to stop eating sugar for health reasons right now. She knows I am a natural health freak and therefore asked me to write an article au sujet de resisting sugar.
Because I am beginning to see the larger purpose of this blog and because I love helping people and because I love to experiment in positive ways with my life, I have decided to take it upon myself to learn how to resist sugar for the next 30 days by not eating any and seeing what comes of it (this includes white bread and other simple carbohydrates people…GASP!)
And I love sugar.
I’m on day three and I have had a headache since I began. Sugar is really like a drug and without it my body is punishing me. I just keep telling myself, “Do it for the world Laura!”
This will be the last time you hear of this until I actually write the article when I’m done the challenge.
Happy Thursday everyone!
P.s. Has anyone done this before? Any tips?
