Project Optimism : The Perks of Being in a Cast in Paris

FIVE WEEKS. Five long weeks with a resin made « ball and chain » stretching from the start of my toes to just below my knee. Misery, you would think.

Pretty Paris Pictures : Night Seine

Again out on an evening stroll along the Seine, I once more found myself armed with my camera, and free to capture as many shots as my greedy eyes so desired.

Laggridore, luxury perfume

I was contacted recently by a new perfume company and asked if I was interested in writing about their product. After a brief description and a browse of their website I said « Oui! » but that I thought it best if I « discovered » their perfume in person.
