Surreal Sculptures are in Search of Their Missing Pieces

Who hasn't gone on a trip and felt like they had left something behind? In September, to celebrate the city of Marseille's status as the European Capital of Culture 2013, French artist Bruno Catalano displayed ten life-size, figurative sculptures at the port of Marseille. Inspired by travel, his surreal bronze sculptures represent a world citizen who's in…

Some Fun With "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire"


I just couldn't resist the opportunity to poke a little fun at my brother by creating my own "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" question on Remixito. Though it's a French site, you'll be able to quickly maneuver through it and create your version in no time. Found through… Continue

A Little Daring and Quite Naughty: The 2009 French Vogue Calendar

You know it's a little risque if the front cover of your calendar has a naked boob on it. And instead of thinking it's sexy you think it's crazy! (So call me a prude.) It's in the December/January issue of French Vogue if you must indulge yourself. The calendar features fourteen models wearing Louis Vuitton lingerie and shoes, styled by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Terry Richardson. Personally I'll settle for the Victoria's Secrets catalogue. Give me Miranda Kerr in a bathing suit over these…

Too Cool or Lookin' Like a Fool?: Kate Spade's Envelope Clutch

Called the par avion nikolette, this modern day clutch was inspired by classic American and French stationary. My initial gut reaction is that it's kitschy but cute, however, it's not something I… Continue

La Cachette: A hard to find French restaurant, a truly spectacular experience

Our good friend Tony, who coincidentally told us that Gyu-Kaku was the bomb, also recommended this French restaurant named La Cachette. Now mind you, I am not a big French food fan. In fact, we went to Paris about a year ago and I almost swore it off for good. I did go to… Continue

Restaurant: Bastide in West Hollywood, Expensive but Delightful

Easily one of the most expensive lunches, I have had - I am trying to justify this by thinking of it more as an "experience" than a meal. Tucked away on Melrose Place, next to the new Monique Lhuillier, Bastide closed down for a while and re-opened in September. I'd never been before but I was willing to try this place out for a few reasons:

2. Wanted to give French… Continue
