Stroll in my favorite neighborhood ... the 10th. It is full of corners, shops, cafes atypical. The rue Bichat has a very original graffiti by artist Chanoir. His work includes the codes of traditional graffiti, urban daily and offers a colorful patchwork street illustrations childish. Certain area of ​​the fresco made me think of another graphic style, that of "Nail Art".

The mix of colors, gradients, pointillism, without forgetting the crackle effect ... Everything is there for a graffiti from head to toe! Here are some pictures of the blog Pshiiit and the mural.

It is the curiosity of his small son (Guillaume Gibault) who revived the brand in 2010. The bags come in series whose names are references to the history of aviation (the bag "21h" is named after the time set Mermoz had to cross the Atlantic). Each bag is unique, numbered and manufactured craft. What a pity there is not a collection for women, there were aviators in the 20s!

When we were little, we all have at least worn a sweatshirt White Blue, Champion or Schott synonymous Day EPS to school, physical activity Wednesday afternoon or day without dress inspiration. The good old sweatshirt blanket, sometimes pierced, was often attached to the redneck image of a guy rubbing his crotch in front of the TV on a Sunday (well it is true, there is also the super orange sweatshirt known Vanessa paradise in the clip Joe le Taxi ...). Hunt now your mind all these pictures of 80-90 years, as the sweat became THE centerpiece to have for a trendy dressing.

I discovered the Japanese shop Yodoya by chance when I went Boulevard Beaumarchais. I was warmly greeted by a small woman who was in the process of unpacking boxes straight from Japan. This shop reminds me of a family home which accumulates atypical and typical Japanese objects.


Ando Miyako has long worked for Kenzo, she loves textiles and traditional paper (cardboard and origami). One can also find sumptuous kimonos, bags, pouches and tea services.



To help victims of the Tsunami orphans and celebrate the commemoration of March 11, 2011, a tragic event, organize Miyako on March 9 at her shop, a small flea market and offer Japanese specialties. On the menu: bento, onigiri, Japanese green tea cakes and tasting organic tea. The amount from sales will be donated entirely to orphans Iwate "Background Studies". This money will allow them to attend school and consider higher education.

Let yourself be guided by your appetite and have no remorse, it's for a good cause.

A tree that does everything

By | December 7, 2012

When you have a small home, it is difficult to have a giant Christmas tree with decoration worthy of Galeries Lafayette. What to do? Buy an artificial tree that smells like plastic, mini SAPINOU at the florist that can accommodate a Christmas ball (guaranteed savings)? No it is not, then my pencils and my graphics tablet to address and honor this holiday that I look forward to.

Here's a mix between the Christmas tree and Advent Calendar! 1m90 Layer, a horse that refers to the name of my street, two owls that are active in the task, I can not count the stars that I drew and 24 small numbered papers, not to mention the surprises boxes. Here are the top 6. On the menu: chocolates, wooden toys, Christmas decorations, nail polish, sweets and bracelet manufactured home. Everything is there to remember our toys of yesteryear. It only lacks the fire and the smell of Christmas cakes.

I will share my upcoming openings in the coming posts or within the next instagram!

Noel Dior

By | November 13, 2012

And here again my favorite time of the year is the tip of her nose! The Grands Boulevards parents once again of their facades light (although Galeries Lafayette have disappointed me with their new decorations too shy and not at all in the Christmas spirit, at least in my opinion! Despite fir Swarovski deposited below their magnificent dome, it has no price). However, if there has a shop that makes me happy is the Spring and its partnership with Dior, for whom I have a special affection. The famous luxury brand is busy staging showcases themed mythical places in our City of Light. Thus one can find several paintings, some of which animated the help of miniature dolls dressed iconic styles House, reproduced with perfection reduced scale. Icing on the cake, you will find inside the middle of the store, to the Atrium, a pop-up store Dior who settled for parties and that made me crazy elsewhere. I wanted to buy everything, even the beautiful but useless stuff like Advent calendar that shows the shape of the store on Avenue Montaigne, the Mother House. For punishment, I am pleased by buying two nail their collection Diorific, na!

Brief. I love Dior.
My two varnish Diorific "Lady" and "Diorling."

A mix to unwind and forget the stress of the job and finally enjoy reading break Aux Mille Feuilles. This library / tea room opened its doors a few months ago and it is a pleasure to accompany his literary research with smells of hot chocolate you tickling the nostrils, rather than stifling shelves of department stores.

How about a hot chocolate like no other and succulent sweets? A large wooden spoon, planted in a cube of chocolate, dip it in milk and you get a whole hot chocolate!

A tip for those who come Aux Mille Feuilles, you can leave your watch at home. Since we never see the time go for a good read, leave all the magic!
