Le manteau anti-grisaille Jatual

Bonjour mes chéries, Paris au mois de novembre ce n’est pas très gai: il fait froid, il pleut, il fait nuit à 17h30, il fait gris…Mais on essaye de se motiver et de garder la bonne humeur avec de petites touches de couleur comme est le cas de ce joli manteau signé Jatual avec le col en bleu ciel <3  Quelle beauté, non? Pour compléter le look, une belle chemise à noeud de Rebecca Minkoff, mon vieux Levi’s dechiré, des boots Bobbies et un joli sac working girl  de Karl Lagerfeld. Approuvé ou pas? Les superbes photos sont encore de ma chinoise préférée Jinling Xu. Olá, minhas queridas! Paris no mês de novembro näo é muito alegre: faz frio, chove, anoitece às 17h30, o céu é cinza…Mas o jeito é se animar e manter o bom humor com pequenos toques de cor como esse lindo casaco da Jatual com a gola azul celeste <3 Não é lindo? Para completar o look, uma bela camisa com nó na parte inferior de Rebecca Minkoff, meu velho jeans Levi’s, …

Marc Jacobs Beauty: déjeuner avec Gilbert Soliz

La semaine dernière j’ai eu l’occasion de déjeuner avec Gilbert Soliz, le make up artiste monde de Marc Jacobs Beauty, un professionel très accesible et sympa. Il a montré à notre petit groupe de blogueuses quelques tips de maquillage avec les produits de la marque new-yorkaise, ainsi que quelques nouveautés de Nöel comme le joli coffret de pinceaux (qui pêut être utilisé en tant que clutch!) et la nouvelle palette de fard à paupières (trop belle, vous allez l’aimer!). Les nouveautés sont disponibles chez Sephora à partir de novembre. Pour commencer, pour celles qui connaissent le fond de teint Re(marc)able, la façon correcte de l’appliquer sur le visage. En suite, un tutoriel sur comment appliquer le Glow Stick enlumineur (gros coup de coeur!), le fard à joues Air Blush (je l’ai en toutes les couleurs!), et finalement, le crayon gel. Curieuses? Regardez les vidéos et bon divertissement! Na semana passada tive a oportunidade de almoçar com Gilbert Soliz, make up artist global da Marc Jacobs Beauty, um profissional extremamente acessível e simpático. Ele mostrou ao nosso …

Uptown: an interesting impudence

Some time ago I’ve tested this new restaurant, Uptown, located in up north Montmartre, in a quiet and charming little street (18, rue Francoeur). Making corner with Diard street (a street below the level of the restaurant, creating this charming ambiance of Montmartre), it is painted in blue and has some tables outside, which is just perfect for the summer. A special attention for the spirit of the place, with lots of raw materials, wood, iron, antique chairs,  dish cloth napkins (sic), cutlery at the disposal of customers in glass jars, impair dishes, etc., a déco full of charm and originality. The wine list is mainly foreign, a good opportunity for local French customers enjoy fresh air. The idea here is « Plats à partager » dishes enough for two people, which is a small revolution in French cuisine (and also a tendency, I’ve already seen this happening here and there, for example, in George , from George V). The chef Fabrizio Guerrini (former Agapé) runs the kitchen of this den hipster, but don’t you think that we …

Styloïde: a genius ideia

A few weeks ago I went to visit Vanrycke Paris‘s showroom on Place Vendôme, created by Parisian jewelry designer Lise Ferreira (which has Portuguese ancestry, as you guys can see in her name!). A sympathetic and creative person with a nose for what is modern, comfortable and usable in terms of jewelry today. For her, the jewelry has to be light, almost imperceptible in the woman’s body. And yet elegant, fine, creative.  I like the concept and quality of Lise’s pieces, everything is extremely thin, with graceful undulations. One of my favorites is the Coachella (and I have it, yay!), these earrings that makes a crazy success here in Paris. From the red carpet we can see that her pieces have already been adopted by many celebs as Laetitia Casta, Bella Hadid, Marion Cotillard, Jessica Alba (who wears her Coachella all the time!), and outside red carpets, Garance Doré and at last but not the least Beyoncé! A real success! I went to her showroom to know this year’s big news: the Styloïde, a bracelet in …

A gourmet Italian night at Caffé Artcurial

I love testing restaurants with friends, there is always a lot of talk, exchanging ideas on food and drinks (and sometimes even on waiters!), desserts, décor, we talk and enjoy it all. The last testing was the Caffé Artcurial – inside Artcurial’s, traditional gallery and auction room in Paris, located in the Golden Triangle of Champs Elysées with Avenue Montaigne, with my beloved fellows Luciana and Caroline. The caffé, which follows the Italian line – cicchetti, antipasti, first course, second course – has just launched a brand new spring menu, which is just so good!   We started with the famous aperitif, with the options spritz or champagne, and guess what was our choice? Very divided! Two champagnes and one spritz for Carol, cos’ she was a little bick sick…Well, going back to the point, we’ve had also: bufallo muzzarella, charcuteries, salami, cerise tomatoes. To celebrate the lauching of the new menu, the journalists had the opportunity to taste a Sassontino 2014, simplement une tuerie, as we say in french! As a follow up, bouchées à la …

Brasserie Thoumieux, c’est tout mieux!

I visited Hôtel Thoumieux‘s brasserie last Sunday, I was in the mood since a long time to try their brunch. For those who do not know, the chef des lieux, Sylvestre Wahid, has two macarons in Michelin’s guide. Firstly, the place has a real Parisian allure: it is an old restaurant back to 1923 Belle Epoque, now under the command of the famous Costes brothers. Modern, the décor is all about Paris in the roaring amid emerald green gooseneck lamps, the red velvet banquette, mirrors, mirrored columns, ball shaped chanderliers. Snuggly, it is true, but that’s also what makes the charm of the place. If you close your eyes, you are back  to these Années Folles, with actresses, singers, artists, bohemians dancing on the tables, singing and drinking. Attention, the logo of the hotel / restô / brasserie was made by the duo M / M. Impossible to be more branché as a place. The brunch is simply « no comments »: they have simply the bread and rillettes of Meilleurs Ouvriers de France, the desserts from …
