I’ve become obsessed with Marcel Proust and Le episode of the Madeleine.
So much so that I ordered a Madeleine tin and made sure I was fully stocked with the ingredients to make a batch of my own.
Why? Because I enjoyed that chapter immensely and identified with him for the first time since beginning the book. I had to get past page 15 to finally get into the story.
I missed buying these little beauties yesterday, which would have been fitting with it being Bastille Day, but better late than never.
I consider myself to be a literary snob, I am drawn to the classics and sometimes feel like I have been living under a rock when I discover a new book that has developed a cult following among my peers.
What would life be like if we didn’t wake up wanting something, even if it was a new bracelet, top or handbag?
I have a few things on my wish list, every so often I make one, and eventually get everything on the list. These are a few items that I can totally use on a daily basis.
I can wear the red/white striped Tee by Chance as a layering piece under my little black jackets and eventually alone as I lose more weight.
The K. Jacques sandals I can wear with my Mexican Pheasant blouses and boyfriend jeans. Although I don’t wear yellow-gold jewelry, I love Aurelie Bidermann, I love everything she designs, it’s all so bohemian Chic.
Another item that I would love, are these adorable earrings by Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea, why? Because I love everything about her, she has such style.
I finally received every volume of Marcel Proust’s The Captive and The Little Prince Moleskin Diary – let’s just say I am a huge admirer of Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea – I want whatever she’s having period.
Always being on the lookout for a new lip treatment, I’m going to pickup Clinique’s Repairwear Intensive Lip Treatment, because let’s face it, Sofia looks amazing.
Although I know Sofía Sanchez Barrenechea has been in the fashion/beauty industry for years, I admit it sometimes takes me awhile to catchup. I say better late than never. I love her style, totally chic and she’s a girl after my own heart, she looks stunning with-or-without red.
