Printed Pants

When it's winter time, we always want to wear black, brown, grey,..."not-so-much-fun colors" and wait for the beautiful days to come along so we can start popping colors.... BUT, you do not have to wait anymore!
The printed pants are the solution to spice up the boring winter days!

The loud prints and bold patterns may seem a bit risky, but just like everything in life, it is all about balance!
You can play with the prints and wear a top that has a plain color so you can "balance" the two out easily!

Look at the pictures chosen; all those pants look wonderful because each model chose a plain shirt to go with it!

Hope you will "spice up" your winter a little bit without being over the top! Just remember that you should always find a good balance!

With love,

Do not forget to love yourself first

We always read articles in magazines about the different problems that we can encounter when we are in a relationship.

Well, first of all, I want you girls/women to remember that you need to love yourself first before you can love anyone else. It is important to feel happy, be confident and chase away all kind of insecurities before you can
love someone else.

Many people hastily enter relationships seeking security from someone else in order to compensate for their own insecurities. But as nice as it sounds, it will not work.
Think about you first and then think about the other person. It is not selfish, you do not have to feel bad about it. It is just a matter of understanding how the human body works.
What makes you happy will have a positive impact on you, will get you in a good mood and good mood can be shared easily.

You need to love yourself first. Do the things that make you happy and match your personality. Do not change for anyone. You can work on some of your flaws but you cannot pretend to be someone that you are not.
If you are currently in a relationship, you certainly think that you are lucky to have found such a special person. (which is probably true and very wonderful for you ) But, you also need to think that your "soul-mate" is lucky to have you as well. Everything works both ways.

Love yourself, be happy, be you. You only have one life to live, you might as well, think about living a delighted one, with people surrounding yourself who love you for who you are.

With love,

Hello, hello dear "cheese lovers",
If you love cheese and if you are tired of only having soup for dinner when it is cold outside, I have the perfect most frenchie recipe for you !

I am SO "fond-of-fondue" (and so is my boyfriend after last night! ) I have noticed that "fondue" here usually refers to the chocolate one, where you dip different fruits in chocolate and of course, it is quite yummy!
Well, in France, we are the cheese nation so we usually talk about "cheese fondue".
The concept is simple, you love cheese, so you cook the recipe (which is very simple by the way), you get some good bread and here we go. You can get make a cheese fondue happen anytime !


4 teaspoons cornstarch, divided
1 tablespoon plus 1 cup dry white wine, divided
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Gruyere cheese (you can use Monterey cheese)
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3 drops hot pepper sauce
Cubed French bread and/or sliced apples


-In a small bowl, combine 2 teaspoons cornstarch with 1 tablespoon wine; set aside. Combine cheeses and remaining cornstarch; set aside.

-Rub sides of a large saucepan with cut sides of garlic; discard garlic. Add remaining wine to the pan and heat over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan. Stir in lemon juice.

-Reduce heat to medium-low; add a handful of cheese mixture. Stir constantly, using a figure-eight motion, until almost completely melted. Continue adding cheese, one handful at a time, allowing cheese to almost completely melt between additions. Stir in the garlic powder, oregano, Worcestershire sauce and pepper sauce. Stir cornstarch mixture; gradually add to the pan. Cook and stir until mixture is thickened and smooth. Keep warm. Serve with bread. Yield: 2 cups.

Choose a cold night, get friends together and enjoy some fondue, you won't be disappointed!

With love,
