On survival, resilience and friends




There is a little piece of text that has appeared several times on Facebook and Pinterest, stylized differently but with a message that remains essentially the same:

"If you are reading this, you have survived your entire life up until this point. 
You have survived traumas, heartbreak, devastation, the different phases of life. 
And here you are. You go, motherfucker. You are awesome."

Spooky Home

I've raved a million times already since I started this blog on how Halloween is my favourite holiday. This October, I've finally taken down the Christmas decorations from last year(I know, I know, I have totally adopted the "crazy writer"/"écrivaine folle" style in my apartment, and you haven't yet seen the candles!) to decorate my home with skulls and bats and ravens. I purchased about thirty-one of the latter from Dollar Tree, and have affixed them here and there, freaking out my guests since they do look very real. I typically avoid the orange/purple/green, which I find too kitschy, and stick to a strictly black and occasionally bone palette that fits my interior perfectly. 
Here are some of my favourite finds for a spooky Halloween home:

Sea Of Coats


I have to admit I have yet to pick my it-coat of the season. The choices are too many, and it is difficult to find something versatile. Until I make up my mind, here's a selection of some favourite winter coats of mine:

Bathroom Edition: 10 items to kick your bathroom decor up a notch


7. Hamper, $79.99
8. Glass canisters, $7.99-$9.99

As I currently live in a rental, I can only soak in my bathtub and fantasize on the day I'll be doing the same in a preferably much-bigger (you can't blame me, I'm 5'8/1,74m) claw-foot basin in a home of my own, preferably with a lover (or two... Joking!). I may have designed my perfect bathroom in my head, (and mine will absolutely be à la française, where the toilets are in a separate room... It just makes sense!), but until then, I rely on inexpensive yet stylish items to personalise and take the look of my current bathroom up a notch. 
Rather than stick to basic bath linen, and drugstore-bought soaps that look like eyesore, I look for pieces that are interesting, stylish and inexpensive. My bathroom colour scheme is neutrals (gray, white, cream) with touches of lavender, but I know I can update it at any moment when the envy strikes. I tuck away unsightly plastic containers and only display beauty products that have great packaging. I also like to replace plastic with metal when possible, and to go for darker-coloured materials.
