Tomorrow is Bastille Day or, as I like to think of it, the French Fourth of July. That means it’s also an excuse to celebrate! Here are some ideas to give your day a little je ne sais quoi…
Slice up a hot baguette, open a bottle of French red, and bust out the cheese board–
Daydream about a trip to the Gardens of Marqueyssac-
Watch Papillion, one of my favorite movies. It’s about an innocent man sent to a brutal French penal colony on a remote island. You can’t go wrong with Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman!
And finally, find a French doggie to pet!
Have a great weekend!
Louis Vuitton is celebrating their centennial in a pretty unusual way- by fashioning their purses, key chains, and clutches into animal sculptures! At first glance, you don’t realize what the animals are made of…what a creative idea!
Here are some of my favorites:
The collection will go on tour later this year. I hope it comes to Boston because I would love to see it! Click here for more animal sculptures. Which one is your favorite?
Happy Friday! It’s such a nice day out and though I’m stuck at work, I can’t help but daydream about traveling somewhere exciting. Imagine…drinking red wine in a plaza in Barcelona. Or nibbling on cheese in a cafe in Paris. If only!
If your imagination needs help, check out these videos that were made for EF Language Schools. Each one features a different city and encourages you to “live the language.” I think they’re beautiful and really highlight the culture of each city. The Paris one is my favorite:
Doesn’t it make you want to book a flight instantly? I also really like the Beijing one. Those Asian kids are adorable!
Check out the other two videos for Barcelona and London here. I wish they would make one for Italy and Greece as well!
