Place de la Concorde

When I think about Paris, my heart always gets a little weak inside as this beautiful capital of France has captured my heart ever since I was a child. I even had a Paris-scrapbook when I was eight! I can honestly say that my entire life, I have had a bit of a crush on this city… the city of lights… my beloved Paris… Read more…

Lazy Sunday

Posted on Updated on

And it’s Sunday again… I’ll make it a lazy one if you don’t mind 🙂

Why don’t you do the same and take a look at what my blog brought to you this week… a beauty post about a trip to a wellness resort (heaven!), a quote about goals and dreams (because you’re never too old to have them!), a post on how to wear ‘en rouge et noir’ (you can still vote for your favorite style), a tips ‘n trips post about beautiful Paris (because Paris is always a good idea!), an update on my October-challenge (will I make it??) and a new outfit of the week (now who wouldn’t fall in love with these polkadots?!).

I wish you a good, fab and lovely time on my blog and enjoy your Sunday!

Love, Kathleen


Today’s quote : happiness

Posted on Updated on

“Whoever is happy, will make others happy too” – Anne Frank

The Westertoren, near the hiding place of Anne Frank. The bells chimed every 15 mins, which soon gave Anne a familiar feeling which comforted her.

Today’s quote is from Anne Frank, a joyous teenager who had to live in miserable circumstances. I’m sure that due to her vivid character, she made life at “Het Achterhuis” (link), the hiding place in Amsterdam she lived in during the second world war, a bit more liveable for the other 7 inhabitants.

Anne Frank would’ve turned 86 today if it weren’t for Bergen-Belsen in 1945. Her diary was one of my favorite novels when I was a teenager. I read it several times and her strong character continued to amaze me. I recently bought the book for my children as I want them to read this piece of history that may never be forgotten !

Love, Kathleen

This is my first post… well, not a proper post I must confess… more like a countdown until my first real “the good, the fab and the lovely” post… just a bit more patience !
