Ahead of time.

en avance

I think I’m way ahead of my time. Some kind of fashion seer, so “hype” I’m like 5 years ahead of everyone. Just kidding. Oracle will do it.
No but seriously, as far as flare jeans and 70s style go, it’s pretty true. In Highschool, I only wore these. But back then, it wasn’t cool. So I kinda was the black sheep with my none skinny jeans, my tye & dye Led Zeppelin t-shirts and extra long chain necklaces I stole from my mom’s collection of relics from her hippie days.
Today, I bless my ungraceful years and my mental illness which keeps me from throwing anything away, cause now I can get everything out of my social rejects box and brag about my little flowery tops and wooden heels all summer long !
Do you believe me if I tell you these jeans are actually 5 years old ?! They never left my dressing since I’ve got them, and even if I don’t wear them everyday, they remain one of my very favorites !
Ahead of my time, I tell you !

Strawberries & Fresh Mint Salad

salade-de-fraises-menthe

Strawberry salad, strawberry soup ?! You tell me !
It’s kind of both and none of it, I choose to call it salad because of the big pieces, but the recipe is interesting thanks to the “soup”. Anyway, what we call it has no importance, the taste prevails !
Every year, as the strawberry season begins, I always want to make this recipe I’ve got from my mom. It’s fresh, really easy to make and you can adapt super easily depending on how many people will eat ! It usually makes everyone happy, except for my father-in-law- who loves everything but strawberries, God knows why ! But you do love them, right ?! 😉
So there you go for the recipe !

Look for the bare necessities !

Il en faut peu pour être heureux

Look for the bare necessities ! A deserted street by a beautiful park full of trees in bloom losing their petals on the sidewalk, that’s just like fashion blogger’s heaven.
As soon as we spot that spot (ahah), a crazy happy, jumpy and big-silly-smiles-that-shows-you-how-many-teeth-i-have shoot began.
And when this happens, you can be sure Joey will be even happier ! If I start running and jumping, he’ll just try and be even more silly than I already am ! And then we just end up making the few passersby looking at us happy too ! 🙂
