What I learned from Sarah Blakely

What I learned from Sarah Blakely

I went to a conference for women entrepreneurs in New York today and had the privilege of meeting so many women entrepreneurs who had built successful business they had turned into million and billion dollar ventures. It could have been intimidating, but instead it was inspiring. One of those people in the room was Sarah…

Strawberry Tart

Strawberry Tart

You cannot say you want to make a strawberry tart and use rotten strawberries. That is what my neighbor said to me today when he invited me for tea. Maybe he thought of that because on the terrace around us there were lots of people having strawberry tarts, or maybe because aside from being a…

People Coming Back into Your Life

People Coming Back into Your Life

This year more than other years people I have met in other contexts and places over the last thirty years have made their way back into my life. The reason they do so varies from reaching out to say hello, to needing something, to coming through Paris and so many others I cannot remember and…

Clementine

Clementine

Yesterday I spent the afternoon in the Tuilerie gardens with a jewelry designer and artist I had met at an event, a charity evening we participated in last week. She had exhibited some pieces of jewelry but most of her stand was taken over by postcards of her drawings and various notebooks of her sketches.…

Before The Wedding

Before The Wedding

Yesterday I really impressed myself because I was better than I thought I could be. I had spent the morning stressing myself out because I was going to do something I had not done before.  And no matter how many years go by, the fear of not doing things properly, although less often, still inflicts…
