Fashion tips from Paris for all moms! (3/3)

Fashion tips from Paris for all moms! (3/3)

For years, I’ve been under the feeling that having a “fashion designer’s eye” is a rare gift that some women have… which obviously I had NOT been born with. I also thought that putting together a fashionable or eye-catching outfit for some special occasions was a skill some women probably receive from birth. Don’t they?

Then, wandering the streets of Paris this summer, surrounded by outstanding Parisian style outfits, I kept asking myself the same question: could it be possible to just have a simple recipe to create a no-fail stylish outfit?

Last weeks on the blog, we already discussed two fashion strategies: the Uniform and the Capsule Wardrobe. Today, I’d like to take you in my quest for great outfits and personal style with a third strategy called The Focal Point. Read more

How to declutter – step by step (a zillion methods… and the simplest of all)

Today, let’s talk about How to Declutter.

First of all, let me tell you that you’ll find a zillion different methods to declutter on the web and in self-help books about home organization. Each different decluttering method will have an exotic name or acronym, such as C.P.R (Categorize, Purge and Re-arrange) from Debbie Lillard, or S.T.O.P. (Sort, Toss, Organize and Put away) from Cynthia Ewer.

And this was even before the era of the Organizing Queen of All, our dear Marie Kondo, with her world-famous book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and her KonMari Method. Lately, the trend revolves more about The Minimalist Game, featured by theminimalists.com, in which decluttering is gamified and shared on social media using the #minsfame hashtag.

Aren’t you feeling lost already? I certainly am. Read more

Tonight I feel as if I was a fairy. With large and airy wings… and most of all a very-very efficient magic wand. Do you want to know what my magic wand was today ?

It changed the life of so many people before me.
When I read this book a week ago, I knew immediatly I had found at least what I was looking for, for so long : a process!!! So I did what I do best : I took notes and then….made a printable!!!! Read more
