Just wanted to give a shout-out to my host in Paris, who allowed me enjoy her beautiful apartment and to show you some pictures of it. Maybe you’ll need it soon😉 Mademoiselle Catherine was this beautiful, charming and helpful Parisienne that I found on Airbnb like in the last minute, since something took a bad turn with our previous accommodation. Her listing was cute, the … Continue reading Where to stay: Catherine’s beautiful Parisian apartment

I’ve been following the horror scene since I was five. In all of these years, there have been a handful of times when I was genuinely freaked out. Here and there, when I was a really young child who insisted on staying up late and watching Argento, some time later, with the original Grudge (the stairs scene), and then there was El Orfanato, The Conjuring, … Continue reading Horror Fans Rejoice: I Found The Best Horror Shorts On Youtube
How is this a thing? Who let it happen? All I see on the internet is women defending makeup (and beautifully), but nothing about who started this. Did anyone dare to belittle people who wear makeup? WHY? Let’s get a few things straight about makeup. 1. We wear makeup, not because we want people to like us more, but because we want to make our … Continue reading I’m sorry, MAKEUP SHAMING?!
I work as a social media specialist (among other things), and like every job you can do from home, that also gives people the impression that ‘it’s not like you’re doing anything’, or ‘it’s just you browsing Facebook’, it can have minor setbacks. So let’s see. Freelancers get the most shit from people, because: It’s not like you’re going to work, or something. (Exactly, however, … Continue reading Clients From Hell

First of all, Almost Parisian is the new title of Coffee, Cigarettes and Crisis. Since it’s only my first and I was learning along the way, some careful research got me the conclusion that, no matter how much I thought the title was super adequate, it simply sounds like a ‘how-to’ book on giving up smoking. Add the indie cover (which I loved, but made … Continue reading Almost Parisian: A new title, new cover and the whole experience.
“You don’t have to be French to be a Parisian.“ —Karl Lagerfeld That, coming from Karl Lagerfeld about Paris and Parisians, is as good as quoting God from the Bible, (and even more important, cause Karl is HERE) so I’m gonna take his word for it. As for you other almost Parisians, whether you plan to make it your title for life, or just for … Continue reading A guide, some tips and fun stuff for girls in Paris
There may be spoilers below, but who cares. I didn’t read the book. I might decide to endure it, though, for the same perverted reasons I decided to watch the movie. The word ‘perverted’ here, is in no way related to the subject covered in the film. It means ‘being completely aware that you’ll have a bad time, and still doing it’. The media went … Continue reading I Watched “Fifty Shades Of Grey”
Once upon a time, in a conveniently unnamed French kingdom, lived a girl with the absolute highest tolerance threshold in the world. In a tragic event, she had lost her mother, and since the rules of society are merciless in fairy-tales, her father remarried, not to a darling, kind woman he fell in love with, but a bitchy, dreadful mistress of Satan, who brought two … Continue reading Glass Slippers and a Reality Check – How CINDERELLA Should Be Told
