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...]

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...]

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...]

J’adore #4

Back again with a few things I spotted that captured my eye and wanted to share with you. Spotted on Paris Boutique Hotel I absolutely adore this vintage luggage turned into a settee! I am a fan of giving every day items can get  second life and this one is so unique. Not only that but Lynn's photo for this piece led me to a fascinating new site called Pinterest.  It is a site based on user … [Read more...]

Shoes of Prey

Seeing photos of Sarah Jessica Parker from the Oscars reminded me that Sex and The City 2 is coming in May - yay!  And that makes me thing about Carrie Bradshaw. I know a lot of people make fun of her fashion sense (and Lord knows, I have no fashion sense!) but I think she is fabulous. An innovator and a risk taker, and I love it. I always think about my business trips to Tokyo and how the … [Read more...]

French Friday – Chic Friends

Today's French Friday is a little different. Today I am participating in La Bella Figura's Chic Friends project. As you know from this week's The Big Reveal, I don't post pictures of myself, but I decided to participate and then I would "retire" from photos. I love this group of women who do their best to emulate a European lifestyle.  Finding simplicity and moderation in clothing, in food, in … [Read more...]
