Garance Doré c'est Classique!

Garance Doré
Being Paris the capital of fashion, lights lovers and all what people love to say about this city, I must to admit that the streets of this old Paris have kind of a charm.

Bennn oui, as we say in French is something difficult to explain and you have to see it or maybe feel it to understand it.

Me personally, I came here for the language.. Cliché I know but even if they insult you.. It sounds cute! LOL
Fashion or as I like to call it “personal own perception of style” is unlimited in Paris streets.. reckless, tight, clean & cut, funky, rocker, zaggy, sporty, sexy, glam, weird, gothic… enfin they have it all.

I’m a blogger rookie but I love to read and check peoples blog, so I ran into C’est Classique, step two read it, step 3 follow! Done.
One of the blogger suggest Garance Doré.. soooo, I’m curious and Voilà.. I love her site.. The French, the photos, the illustration, everything is beautiful!

Bravo Garance..  ton blog est  Doré dans la mesure exacte!  

Bracelet Time

After I did my frienship necklace following the Honestlty WTF tutorial, I realise that is so easy and fun killing time doing some handcraft jewerly so I gave the bracelets a try.

 Look of the day

This Fall the colors are gorgeous. That yellow mustard, the burn orange and that blue difficult to explain where my inspiration. Couleurs terre as we say in France are the IT trends this season so lets be prepare cause the leaves will start to  Fall!

Here a lil pic of my humble creations and 3 fall look it worth to try out!

Love from the city of the amoureux,

I did IT

Hello =D

I'm soooo happy cause I did my first freinship necklace as with the honestlywtf tutorial! Wayyy to easy..
Let me tell you about my experience.. I started a little bit slow you know to control a bit the technique but it will be faster little by little.
A little tip, try to avoid the gaps. pull a little bit up the color strings so theres not white spaces and the colors completely uniform.
For the little details you can custom your own necklace, maube instead of metal rings you want flowers or even a broche.

Once you start doing it, tons of ideas will come to your head so let ur imagination fly and do some new projects!

I have the idea to do my own earrings with a buch of little pearls I saved when one of my bracelets broke.. I went to buy the jewerly stems (so cheap) and grab one of my husbands tongs and Voilà!! my brand new earings.

If you want that I post the DIY let me know!!

Brand new Agenda

Hello Folks

As you all might know the school period just started! oh yes in Paris all the mother and kids are everywhere... but is kind of nice cause you feel the energy and is contagious, so my I went with the hub to buy some books, colors, tapes and paper..
Ohhh no I'm not in school but I just need so many things to craft.. =D I can spend hours!

Looking around for some random useful stuff I saw the agenda. Oh yes I like to have one, since I've learned how to use it properly I can say I feel more organised.. maybe BS but I like to think it that way LOL
With the imminent departure of the Hubs during 6 big months I thought I have to  keep my head and hands busy so I've tracked down some DIY
 For those who are interested in jewerly or decoraton stuff you should check out HonestlyWTF they have great tutorials for amazing ^fashion styles.

I will get busy with the friendship bracelets cause is summer in Paris and colors are my gulty pleasure.
By the way, Im redoing my blog little by little, so get ready cause soon you sill see my new corner... I'm so excited.

Au revoir les amies!!

Bonjour mes chères amies parissiennes!

Sorry sorry, Good morning all my beloved friends from all around the world. Is fantastic how the Web can take your words anywhere.

Last week I was pretty decided to learn the HTML code so I dug and dug and Voilà....
I've found a great website and super cute! I was so happy to see that someone tooked the time to share her knowledge and engage herself to help the beginners like me!
 So, I'm happy to present you Pugly Pixel. Her name is Katrina and let me tell you something I love her style but above all I've found so great her video tutorials. Everything is well explained and fun to do.
So go and check out her website and blog (lovely photos)

What I loved the most about her site is that she encourage you to try out the HTML and to really understand it. Simple everyday examples is her greatest weapon! Practical, easy and Fun! What else we can expect.

I started to take her online e-course for beginners and Im determinate to achieve the goal!! I must climb that HILL!

In the meantime my friends I'll keep you posted about my progress!

I must climb up the hill

Hello there =D

Firstable i must say, I must to climb this hill!! The BLOG hill of course!
So it starts with the fact I'm taking some3D vectorial classes.. yes I know, sounds very complicated but I must to admit I'm fascinated with the Idea. Yesterday was a kinda holliday in France so my teacher called me to see if I wanted to come over and buy some extra time. I was so excited that I said yes!

My hubs was cool with it and even made me like a lunch bag with some french fantastic cheese called Cantal and some cereal traditional bread from Bretagne! Mmmmm I must say it was a dreamed lunch.
So I'm doing some progress with the design and I'm not that bad with the code stuff, so I was thinking to create my own blog layout... ALL OF IT

I already did mu blog header wich I'm very proud of but is the construction of my layout that makes me curious.. so im doing some research to figure it out! I'll keep you posted.

Changing the subject I've found "The Perfect Palette blog" is fantastic, I think she had the courage to develop an idea that for me was only a way to see things. Im a color dreamer, cause for me life looks better dresser in color and what's better than being dressed with the perfect color palette. So dear friends if you have the time go and check her website.

In the meantime my friends I'll keep trying to climb up this whole BLOG hill till I learn how to realise my dreams.

See you soon! bx

Keeping my promise!

Helloooo! =D

Is not easy but I'm Trying!! I really do.. I want my blog to be great!! yes, I want it and I will do it!
This past week was all rushed but I feel good, tired but good. 
As you all saw I did my brand new blog header and the feeling was amazing cause is the 1st time I finally reach the point I wanted.

It tooked me 2 days and im very proud. 
As I was very inspired I continued to design some stuff. Included a logo for a customer and a Poster for my Hub!! He wanted something rusty, vintage and fun so I came up with something and I think is kinda cool in that weird way!

I haven't told you about it but checking out my FB page I saw a post about a site called Pinterest so I stopped by to take a look and ohh Boy I love it!! Inmediately asked for an invitation and start seeing peoples work.. Its fantastic, color palletes, food, graphic desing, recepies, fashion, DIYs and more!
Go and check it out cause it totally worth it.
This is how it works: You ask an invitation, and after you have like Boards where you can PIN (tag) a photo from something that inspire you, and you came up with this source of infinite information/photos/colors.. Wonderful!
You have access to the author of the work and also you can Like it or repinned!

For most of u guys maybe this site is already a reference but be kind with me Im just starting with this huge blogsphere!

You have another tips or websites I can visit? Hit me.. leave me a comment or send me a message! I with my magnetoscope in hand and with plenty curiosity bag in my back!

As we say in French: Je suis à la découverte!

Au revoir les amis!

Bye bye,

PS/ hereunder the poster i made!
