Spaghetti Western.

western-bardenas-reales

I’ve always been fascinated by deserts. I’ve seen quite a few since I’m a kid, in South America or North Africa especially, where I traveled when I was a kid. But my fascination for desert really comes from westerns… As a kid, my parents used to show me tons of them. My hero was Clint Eastwood, without any hesitation. The movies from my childhood are Pale Rider, High Plains Drifter, For a Few Dollars More or Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid (without Clint though, but still really awesome !). I could watch them in a row, I was just fascinated by the landscapes, the loyalty and bandits stories, the horses running like crazy in those big dusty plains, and Clint Eastwood of course, whom I’m in love with since I’m like 5…  I can completely picture myself sitting in the deserted pub of my parents friend with my brother, obsessed by the finale scene from A Fistful of Dollars, waiting to see who from Joe and Ramon was going to die. So yeah, westerns are really dear to my heart, there was even a time when I always received new DVDs for Christmas, and I was so happy to discover new movies !
So, when I learned about the Bardenas Reales desert in Spain, 2 hours away from the French border and where all the westerns that are lacking budget for the US are being shot, I got crazy and planned our little road trip in a day. It was two weeks ago, and it’s one of the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen ! Of course, we had to shoot an outfit there, the landscape was way too beautiful too pass up ! So here it is today, with a little foretaste of the place, because I’ll be back on thursday with a vlog, lots of pictures and many good places to see there ! I hope it’ll make you want to go and check this place yourself !

WoufBox, the doggy box !

woufbox

You know that my dog is my everything. There’s nothing too good for him, actually I could totally say that I’m more careful with him that I am with me ! Sometimes, I wonder if it’s even possible to love something or someone more than I love that little fluff ball… Yeah, really !
So, basically you can figure out that when I heard about the WoufBox, I felt it was the best idea ever and wanted to try it really bad ! For me who’s always looking for new and funky things to make Joey’s days even better, I thought I really couldn’t find anything better !
But what is this WoufBox thing ?! Well, besides the fact that it’s made exclusively for our little furry friends (there’s also a MiaouBox, for kitties), it’s basically the exact same concept as all of this beauty, food or deco boxes : You fill in your pet’s profile (name, age, size, breed and hairtype), you choose a subscription option (monthly, 3, 6 or 12 months) and there you go, your doggy will receive a new box each months, filled with treats & toys, accessories and care products (between 5 and 6 products per box). You’ll be sure to make your pet the happiest member of your family !!!
So yeah, when WoufBox offered me to try the box from August, I was so ecstatic for my boy ! I can definetely tell you that when I received the box, Joey instantly know that it was for him, you should have seen how he was jumping to reach the box !!! So here are our thoughts on this August box !

Back to School.

la-rentrée

For most of us, it’s officially the end of summer holidays, and this means that we are all going back to school (or work for most of us, but school sounds cooler, nah ?). Papers flying, bosses yelling, people stressing out… Everyone’s back to business and already thinking about that next time they’ll get some time off.
But this year, for the first time in my life, the only thing I regret is that summer is ending, no more family time, days are getting shorter, temperatures are growing colder and leaves in the trees are getting more red…
Yeah, for me, this year should be different and really exciting ! I’ve got so many projects coming to me, and I’ve never felt that motivated ! I even worked on and off during my holidays, and since I got back to Paris, I can’t stop working, which is something I never would have imagined possible just a few months ago. I actually feel like some of my dreams are coming through. Well, “dream” is a big word, it’s technically more of a “professionnal project”, but I feel like work is such a big part of our petty lives nowadays, it can become some kind of a dream.
The craziest part is that, even though a lot of things seem blurry to me regarding those projects, and my anxiety level doing rollercoasters everyday, I just feel happy and optimistic. In the end, I kinda think dreams have to be scary, or else they’re just not big enough. So years, I think I’m on the right track, or anyway I’m keeping my fingers crossed !
