(NON) VALENTINE'S DAY
It’s almost Valentine’s Day and all the stores are full of lovely gifts and furry hearts. It looks like the whole world is desperately looking for a nice present for his or her lover. Personally I think Valentine’s Day is a bit hypocritical ‘cause, I don’t need a special day when I ‘’must’’ show my love to my lover.
But in a way I could understand that people take this day as their chance to show their love. So, why not in Paris? It is the perfect setting for some romance…
‘’THE GENESIS OF BUTTERFLIES’’ BY VICTOR HUGO
‘’The dawn is smiling on the dew that covers
The tearful roses; lo, the little lovers
That kiss the buds, and all the flutterings
In jasmine bloom, and privet, of white wings,
That go and come, and fly, and peep and hide,’’
Victor Hugo was one of the most influent French romantic writers of the 19th century, this is a piece of his poem ‘’The genesis of butterflies’’. He also lived in Paris at Place des Vosges, the oldest square in Paris. Also a very romantic place to go to with your lover!
Below some romantic Paris' style-things for a ( non ) Valentine’s Day…
It’s been a while since I posted my last writing, so I’m very sorry, but I’m back! With some great news!
The last few weeks, I‘ve been busy with getting a study place in Paris for next year. At first my school did approve, then again they didn’t… so I got very confused but last week I got an email from our manager that we still have a chance to study in Paris. If you know me, you would also know that this is my ultimate dream. It’s also a next step to become a Parisienne.
Within a few weeks I have a selection interview with school, so I’m praying that I will be the lucky one! I’ll keep you informed!
Below, some nice Paris things to get in the Paris ‘mood…
