Discovery: John Woodbridge – Paris

Hello,

Today I wanted to share a small shop in Paris that I discovered last month. My cousin spotted it right away and as soon as I got in I was completely in love with the store.

It’s called John Woodbridge and sells amazing vintage looking travel and sport items.

This company which is quite recent (2013) aims to spread the love of vintage objects that are full of history.

Over there, you’ll find amazing leather pieces for travelling or old looking baseball balls among any others.

Here are some pics from their website.

The whole atmosphere of the store is gorgeous, it has this kind of man cave vibes to it that I find super charming.

If you are ever in the lovely area of St Paul in Paris, I highly recommend you check it out.

PS: And if you are really into vintage sports like this, check out their tumblr page which will be an absolute delight for you! Well done!

Cheers,

P&F

Amazing Discoveries #FOOD

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I stumbled upon this amazing video with some great tips for food photography. I loved the fact that it really got into details explaining the different options of a DSLR (I have very few knowledge about that) but also the best tips for pictures taken with phones!

But the best part was definitely the fact that I got introduced to Top With Cinnamon – an amzing food blog that I am sure many of you know already. Izy Hossack seems so nice and down to Earth and she is truly talented.

I highly recommend you to stop over her blog if you’ve never been there and to take a look at this amazing promotion video for her recent book (how cool is that?).

Congrats Izy and a very happy weekend to you all!

Cheers,

I miss going to many fashion/design events as I used to do back in September. I gave priority to my other activities this winter and mainly university. I hope I will have the opportunity to go back to these events soon.

Those of you who live/know Paris, are you aware of some nice upcoming activities?

Many many many of you may know this by now. I got some Stan Smith sneakers for my birthday back in October and I have been absolutely loving them. They are super comfortable, go with everything and they always give a casual touch yet sophisticated thanks to the Midas touch (got it? Gold 😉 – so P&F). Follow me around and see more snaps of my own Stan Smith here!

Polo Game in London

As some of you may know already, I spent a month in London last summer. Although I was there for my studies, I had the opportunity to explore the city, taste a tiny bit of the British lifestyle and mostly, meet a lot of amazing people.

972344_10151595216723553_623400045_n 539661_10151595215638553_678250485_n

One day after classes, a friend of mine suggested going to see a polo game – I accepted the invitation right away as I think it is such a beautiful sport and I had never been to any game before.

When we arrived I was so excited to see all the horses (that I think are one of the most beautiful and elegant creatures ever), the players in their nice uniforms and everyone dressed up to attend the game.

What I liked about it was that you could either appreciate the game from one side, sitting down and enjoying a cup of tea, or be on the other side (more casual) throwing your own picnic with friends.

In fact, I was expecting the game to be much more dynamic. You don’t have that many players in both teams but the field has to be huge for the horses to run. As a result, the action may not going on in front of you everytime. This was the only downside.

I loved to see how fast the horses went, and then how precise, delicate but yet strong the kick had to be done for the players to throw the ball. Absolutely amazing.

If you ever go to a polo game and if you are able to bring a picnic or so, I would suggest you to do that. Attending a game like this is more about the atmosphere and enjoying the time spent with your friends and family than really bein drawn to the action (at least in my case because I am not a fine connaisseur of this sport).

Have you ever been to a game like this?

Hoping you are having a wonderful week.

Today’s Song!

Hello everyone!

Well, as we are at the beginning of the month, we need to make some changes and get a fresh start!

I have been really absent from my blog because a lot has been going on these last two month. But this is slowly but surely changing!

I think I’m going to start a new series called: Miss/Love/Excited. And yes, the name is not that awesome, I am still trying to think of a better name.
The point is: sharing with you something that I have been missing, something that I am currently loving and something that I can’t wait/excited for! This can be anything!

Let’s get started 😀

Fashion at a good deal!

Hello everyone!

I hope you all spent a very nice week.

For those who live in the USA, this is awesome because you get amazing addresses to go and shop what you like in these reviews. For us, other citizens of world, I think we can get pretty much inspired! There are 17 episodes so far! Get excited to discover them all!

Eyelashes DIY

Hi guys!

No.. this is not a DIY to grow your eyelashes or anything like that… However it is the perfect post for the ones who love eyelashes & DIY’s!

This is kind of a random post where I picked some things that I have been liking and want to create!

So let’s see what we got there!

Image

I have been loving this picture for so so long now! When I first saw it on Pinterest I kind of did not know what to think about it because it striked me so much, but then I realize that this girl is just amazingly beautiful. What stroke me is actually gorgeous! It is this bold eye look that she has, I mean come on! Her eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows are so so nice! This picture is really simple but I really love it. I wish I had such an amazing picture of myself. Amazing.

Now few days ago, I saw this picture while looking for some DIYs on Pinterest! I just thought this little project was so cool and I am actually thinking about putting it on the wall behind my bed. I think it is going to look very cute. NOW I NEED YOU MY DEAR READERS, my bedroom is white and kind of a champagne color, so I don’t really know what colors I should use for this.. I mean pink is definitely a great color when it comes to representing a heart.. (duh) but I think I am going to get bored after a while. I have some silver touches as well, so I thought replacing the gold paper on the DIY with a silver one. Then for the 2 other colors I really don’t know.. I mean white paper on the white walls is going to look strange. I thought about a very pale baby green as I have flowers a lot of time around my bedroom (and they always have at least their leaves that are green). But I don’t really know. I need your help to pick 3 colors! Please let your suggestions in the comments!

Now ladies and gentlemen.. the most expected, the amazing, the funnieeeeeeest EYELASHES EYE MASK! *tadaa*
How cool is this eye mask? I mean you can take all your make up off before you go to bed and not be afraid of looking bad when you sleep (bold eyelashes style – oh yea). I saw this one at Claire’s today and I think it is still available (at least in their website it is). Love it!
I think I am going to buy a very simple eye mask and then DIY to get to this style. Or maybe buy it. I’ll see!

Hope you like these little eyelashes/DIY stuff!

XOXO,

P&F
