Morocco Style

Lately I have been dreaming of going to Morocco. All aspects of it interest me; the culture, the food, the design, the history etc. I love their use of color and the designs. Their souks (outdoor markets) absolutely fascinate me as well! Enjoy!

Friday French Lesson

Since I am a French student I have decided to incorporate the language and/or culture into the blog. The Friday French Lesson will be comprised of (but not limited to) French words, photos relating to France or people and places having to do with France. I hope you enjoy!


Awhile ago I came across a website called Basic French, when I recently revisited, I found out more about the person who owns it. The company is owned by Carol Neiley. She lives in Lyon (now, she used to live in the US) with her two daughters and has a country house nearby. Here  are some photos of it. The best part? You can rent it- here!

I was really excited to find that Madewell is now selling their clothes and other items online (it used to be only sold in their stores). Some of the jewelry is too fun! They have wonderful sparkle and flair and the brushed hardware is great too. Love the photo with the necklace draped over paint tubes, as if an artist just left it lying around! Hope you enjoy as much as I do!

…these Mor soaps are so cute, especially the little metal cases they come in. Great for travel or a present.
