Sinfonietta Paris is a new Chamber Music orchestra and the brainchild endeavor of Michael Boone, former head of the music department at the University of Colorado. I met Michael at the Kooka Boora café at the same time I met Very-Intersting-and-talented-dude (which you’ll read about in my next post!). Just another proof that Paris still attracts artists and amazing people with talent!
An artist and “activist” of sorts who wants to make sure classical music creation is something that is perpetuated more by young musicians and music professionals; he has created Sinfonietta. “Composed of nine to seventeen young professional artists who have trained at many of the world’s finest conservatories and festivals, Sinfonietta Paris is a vibrant new chamber orchestra based in Paris, France, dedicated expressly to musicians and soloists at the beginning of brilliant performing careers.” You can support them with donations here.

I was recently invited to a presentation event of Science & Mer Paris products that took place in their lovely offices just be hind the Madeleine.
We were introduced to a brand that holds it’s clout in the scientific research used to create the cosmetics they sell. These laboratories, Science & Mer, produce cosmetics for many other brands (although they are restricted by contract from revealing which ones) for the past 25 years, and they finally decided to create their own brand to be able to profit from all that research and development that they do!

In need of a garter for my upcoming June wedding, and to satisfy my ever growing need to be creative, I thought I would make one.

My wedding shoes!
It only took me an hour or so, a few blue sequins a little lace and organza ribbon and voilà! Continue reading
