Mood of the day: oh Boy!

I feel like I am dropping the ball a lot these days. I am sprinting in thousands of direction without knowing if I am ever going to cross ‘The’ let alone a line. Future will tell. I have reached out recently to many old girlfriends from my London era whom I haven’t talked to inContinue reading “Mood of the day: oh Boy!”

Letter to 10 year-old redlipstickgirl

Here’s the second installment of my ‘Letter to redlipstickgirl’ series (you can read the first letter here) which is me talking to my younger self. A tad indulgent, I know but so much fun to revisit my childhood memories. This post was triggered by my daughter, P. P has a bag for her ‘stuff’. HerContinue reading “Letter to 10 year-old redlipstickgirl”

Activist mama: Justify myself, no more

Most IQ tests would probably conclude that I am an idiot. And I am not even going to fight this. When people ask me what I do, many expect one of these two straightforward answers: I am a stay at home mom or I am a working mom. I never really managed to choose whichContinue reading “Activist mama: Justify myself, no more”

Mood of the day: Blah

I had a working session today with a Fashion entrepreneur/Fashion designer. I love meeting with creative people because they are often extremely good looking and being near them is like eating La Duree macarons while listening to Bach. They have an air about them, an halo: is it the fitted cashmere coat, the biweekly facialsContinue reading “Mood of the day: Blah”

Mood of the day: vintage

There is ice and iced water everywhere in Harlem. On Wednesday, DH came back 5 minutes after leaving the house and said: ‘I cannot take L to the day care, it’s like a freaking ice rink out there’. So I had to do a work video conference call with Europe while L was smashing everythingContinue reading “Mood of the day: vintage”

Addiction

Sara Goldfarb: [about her pills] Purple in the morning, blue in the afternoon, orange in the evening. There’s my three meals, Mr. Smartypants. And green at night. Just like that. One, two, three, four. Requiem for a dream (2000) [Preliminary note: this post contains themes much heavier than my usual stuff such as drugs, alcohol, gamblingContinue reading “Addiction”

The (little) girl next door

‘Girls can wear jeans And cut their hair short Wear shirts and boots ‘Cause it’s OK to be a boy But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading ‘Cause you think that being a girl is degrading But secretly you’d love to know what it’s like Wouldn’t you What it feels likeContinue reading “The (little) girl next door”
