Mood of the day: turkey ‘hunting’

I woke up with a major freak out – Thanksgiving was Thursday. I had been in a complete denial that I offered to, god knows why, host a Thanksgiving dinner. I started to panic about yams and stuffing and felt the need for an urban huntress vibe to face reality and finally collect the 13lbsContinue reading “Mood of the day: turkey ‘hunting’”

Fashion babbling: the challenge – episode 1

L is at the day care which means it is the day when I must get a shower before 11am and wear something else than sweatpants. It is not an option; it is key to the survival of ME as a self-loving woman. Once out of the shower I got on the weight scale andContinue reading “Fashion babbling: the challenge – episode 1”

Mood of the day: I’m like a bird by Nelly Furtado

I knew I wanted to have some kind of hunting/pheasant feel for my 37th birthday outfit – the 18th I am celebrating with DH who was born on the exact same day. It is weird to think that we are like twins who have twins. Thank god for L’s arrival which disrupted our slightly freakishContinue reading “Mood of the day: I’m like a bird by Nelly Furtado”

Mood of the day: rain warrior

Last thursday, New Yorkers were drenched by heavy rain and with this, rain boots inundated the streets and museums: classic Hunter, foldable rain boots by Redfoot, equestrian D&G, comfy Threton…As for me, I wore my MK logo rain boots by Michael Kors for my very first visit (I am slightly embarrassed to admit this) ofContinue reading “Mood of the day: rain warrior”

Dream and reality

After a crazy day running after the kids in Central Park zoo punctuated by two changes of filthy diapers on a bench between sea lions and Rainforest birds, we strolled down Fifth Avenue. I almost choke on the legendary store windows of Bergdorf Goodman, which is celebrating its 111th anniversary. An amazing story of theContinue reading “Dream and reality”

Mood of the day: activist

I woke up pissed off after talking about the presidential elections with friends. I am a mother of three and proud to say that what a woman does with her unwanted fetus is her business. Up to now I have lived in countries where this right was respected and here this right is challenged, spatContinue reading “Mood of the day: activist”

Mood of the day: turban

Summer is over and yeah to Fall, the perfect season to unleash my favorite style: mix and match, schizophrenic and basically the ‘everything goes’ attitude. And for me, it starts with the head. It is too chilly to let my wet hair dry on its own (hair drying is a vague memory of my childContinue reading “Mood of the day: turban”

From diaper bag to laptop bag

The last bag I bought was end of 2010. It was not a large YSL clutch, Mulberry Baywater or Alexander Wang Coco Duffel. It was a diaper bag. I did not it know it then, but it was perhaps the one item in my bag collection about which I could say this: it saved myContinue reading “From diaper bag to laptop bag”

Mood of the day: stripes and bows

Since I am still wearing some of my maternity wardrobe (shame on me, I really need a deadline for this!) I decided to fight the boredom factor by adding a bow taken from my 2007 D & G Organza dress – which let’s face it I will never be able to wear again with theseContinue reading “Mood of the day: stripes and bows”
