New mittens, childhood memories, a funky dress.
My mother gave me a long time ago childhood pictures. I love to look at them. It puts a smile on my face remembering those times. I remember clearly as it was yesterday, when my mother took me by surprise and took that photograph of myself seating on the sofa.It is my favorite picture of all time. What I like about childhood pictures is that children are natural, spontaneous. Already, at a young age, I used to read fashion magazines. I loved and still do to look at beautiful images; I am creating my own imaginary world. Today, I wore this dress which I think is super cool and fun. Also, I finished my new mittens with an Edelweiss embroidered on it. How cool is that!!! I love them. It is perfect actually to wore them today as it is cold outside and chilly.
Last week, I went to the French Institute with the hope of borrowing the other book by Muriel Barbery, La Gourmandise but she is very popular writer right now and this book was out; so I borrowed another book from another writer. From Muriel Barbery, I highly recommend L'elegance de l'herisson (it also comes in English but since French is my mother tongue, I read it in French of course)
Anyway, have a great week and stay warm!
