The new year is upon us! (Bonjour, 2014!) Although this might be the month dedicated to dismantling the festive decorations and shedding the December weight, that doesn’t mean the good times have to end too.

From spending what’s leftover from your Christmas cash to ticking off your cultural new year’s resolutions, here’s our list of things to do in Paris this month. Continue reading

New Year’s Poem with Love!

Happy New Year!
I hope you sparkle, I
hope you have fun,
I hope your glass is raised with friends
and I hope when it’s done,
someone has kissed you
and wished you
the warmest of cheers,
because you all deserve the bestest,
of bestest,
most fabulous
new years!
With love, from Paris

Playing Princess Bride…again!

RebeccaV_TheWeddingTeaRoom8Yes, oui, oui ouuuui… I can’t help myself, when I am asked to kindly be a bridal model for a day, how can I possibly say non?!? Spend the day at a castle, get my hair and make-up done by THE BEST beauty artist I have ever met, wear a CUSTOM MADE dress!!!!! Prance around in front of a camera, and dwell among pretty things all day, not to mention creative women?!? Who would say no to that?!?

Pas moi!

A Dreamy New Year

I saw many people writing posts at the end of December with a retrospective on the new year to come. I didn’t want to spend too much energy reminiscing on the past year here on my blog, since I already did a retrospective for my 2 year blog birthday in October, and well, I would rather look forward to 2012. Not that 2011 was a bad year! Au contraire!!! It was an amazing year! I changed jobs and Chéri asked me to marry him!!! Those two events topped the best-of list for my life in 2011.

But 2012, I know, will be a profound year. And I want to leave all doors and windows open for all the possibilities that might let them selves in. My most anticipated event for this year is my marriage to the love of my life next June. Beyond that, the sky is the limit!

So in honor of my hopes and dreams and all things me for this years’ possibilities, I thought it would be best described in a collage of photos and images compiled to set the mood….

I hope your new year is looking as bright as mine is. Cheers and wonderful things to you all!
