When you’re at home, cold, just finished work and you’re bored with nothing to do, plus your husband has been working a lot lately and you want to please him with something, what do you do? Try to bake cake for the first time! 😛 Yes I know I burned them a bit, but what … Continue reading

How do you spend you Sundays usually? I know that our Sundays in France are a lot different than what we used to have in Lebanon (or what we’ll probably have when we’ll get back). In here Sundays are mainly at home: wake up late, do some cleaning, some cooking, catch up on the books … Continue reading

We went to Lille this afternoon to check the Christmas fair. It wasn’t that bad; definitely better than the Braderie they do in September. The down side in my opinion is that there wasn’t enough kids, even though there are a lot of activities and fun stuff for them to do. But I guess parents … Continue reading

When I was still in Lebanon, I used to tell my friends living outside the country that they should not be reading the news; they should be trying to separate themselves from the headache of Lebanese politics and its ups and downs. Believe it or not, ever since I came here I can’t help myself … Continue reading

Luxury brands in Paris have understood it: money comes mainly from tourists; and if they will need them to spend at their shops, they have to make sure they understand what you’re telling them. So now all  the big shops have salesmen from each country. I went to Prada on Saturday with my sister. There … Continue reading

We just came from Paris. This time we went by car, so we’re more tired than usually. The road is not that long, but when you’re driving it’s different that when you’re sitting comfortably in a train reading a book or looking at the landscape. I drove on our way there; this was an experience … Continue reading

I’m sorry I did not write to you yesterday, I was busy preparing today’s lunch 🙂 This made me notice that I didn’t show you any of this week’s dishes. So here you go… for your eyes only …unfortunately for you 😛 Usually I’m a person who likes cold, rain, and everything related to winter. … Continue reading

There’s a very big French movie in theaters now, it’s a comedy, it’s been playing for two weeks now, and it’s still on top of the charts; it’s called “Intouchables”. We went to see it on Saturday; the movie is still shown in the 1st room since it’s the biggest one and there are a … Continue reading
