J’adore – My Favorite RV Lifestyle Gear – Wardrobe Edition

Now that I shared some of our trip highlights and I gave you a peek into our budget, I thought I might share some of the gear that made Project Escape enjoyable. The most important part of RVing, except for all the fun you are going to have in it, is what you put in it.  The two critical things you have to take into account is limited space and weight restrictions.  One of the most dangerous … [Read more...]

French Friday – French Fantasy Christmas List

It's been a très long time since I've written a French Friday post, but my week in Paris for Thanksgiving has me a little inspired, I have a few francophile posts up my sleeve and soon on their way to the blog. I thought it would be fun to do a French Friday Christmas list. I don't buy any Christmas presents for anyone. We reached the age in my family where we really don't need more "stuff" and … [Read more...]

People Watching in Osaka

Like my experiences in Tokyo, I have to say one of the best things about Osaka is people watching!  Of course I love to people watch everywhere, but most especially in Japan.  I have always admired the way the Japanese express themselves in fashion, often unapologetically. And it is not just "teenagers," I saw interesting outfits on people in every age group. Let's take a look. I know what … [Read more...]

Kyoto’s Kimono Culture

Until my trip to Kyoto and Osaka, my only visits to Japan had been to Tokyo.  During my many visits over the years I had seen women wearing kimonos but really had no idea about the traditional garment, other than how beautiful it is. But while researching for my trip to Kyoto I learned that the city was the ancient capitol of Japan.  That Kyoto has hundreds of temples and shrines, which served … [Read more...]

When in Rome with Audrey

If I could choose one woman's fashion style to emulate for the rest of my life it would be Audrey Hepburn. I am attracted to her simple yet classic style that seems to be timeless. I am not one to spend a lot of time thinking about my beauty routine or what I wear, so staying classic makes my life easy. In reality I know very little about Ms. Hepburn so when I saw the cover of the May issue of … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #185: What the non-celebs wore at the Oscars

My Oscars day write-up is coming up tomorrow (promise!) but in the meantime I wanted to share some of the dresses worn by the non-celebs on the red carpet. Some beautiful others, well, interesting. Nancy O'Dell host of Entertainment Tonight poses for the cameras. Although you could call her celeb media I guess, she is not a "star" in the traditional sense. A little splash of color... Nice … [Read more...]

J’adore #13

I don't plan on theming every J'adore I do (last week was iPhone apps), but it seems only natural to do a Valentine's Day themed one this time around.  Also, most of these products have a green aspect to them as well, which I "adore!" Spotted on Celebrate Green and created by Row Boat Press this is a Valentine's gift that you can use over and over to tell your honey why you love them: Wouldn't … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #44

As much as I adore France some days California feels like heaven. Today was one of those days. I spent a glorious day in Big Sur. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary this week and decided to take a drive the spot where we spent a lot of time when we were dating.  We did nearly the same trip we did in September, but believe it or not the weather was actually better today (in November!).  … [Read more...]

Travel Gear Tuesday – The perfect travel dress

Usually when I am traveling packing a dress can be a bit of a pain, especially if most of the clothes and shoes I am bringing are for outdoor activities or I am taking mainly casual-wear. But now I have found the perfect solution, a dress you can just throw into your suitcase that comes out looking sexy and fresh no matter what! The dress? Patagonia's Margot dress.  It comes in several colors, … [Read more...]

Cannot believe it.  And yet I am thrilled because in a few days I will be back in France!  Not to worry though, I have some truly fabulous guest-posters that are going to keep you entertained and allow me to keep my daily blogging commitment. But first, where did you travel this past month? What posts were the most popular hot-spots?  As always, trusty (and free!) Google … [Read more...]
