The Bleakest January Skies

Every time I find myself living through winter in France, I would always chance upon snow. The first couple of winters I had here, I had the unfortunate experience of having the worst winters that Toulouse had ever experienced in years. This January, according to the reports, Toulouse has seen the bleakest skies again after 45 years. My husband is starting to think I have a curse, or something.

The night of the super blue blood moon... it showed up for a while opposite of this frame... wasn't able to get a good pic.
 This winter has not really been that cold lately. But for the first time today, it snowed. While I am not a big fan of snow, I was able to appreciate it through the eyes of my daughter. She was doing a happy dance when I showed it to her this morning. After a while, she asked me if Santa Claus is coming to bring us presents because it was snowing. Kids are so cute.

Amazed by the snow
Still, I'm glad it didn't snow for too long. Hopefully, the weather will maintain its moderate winter temperature as in the past few weeks... and more sunshine, please!

New Year, New Place... New Me?

Hi everyone! It's been ages since I last updated. Here's a quick roundup of what just happened during the last few weeks:
  • Quit my job in Singapore
Shopping vouchers, hand cream (coz I told them my skin usually gets so dry in Europe), and touching farewell notes from colleagues
  • Moved from our nice apartment with a view to stay for a week at an appart-hotel along Orchard Road with not-so-bad view also
Stayed for a week at the Pan Pacific Serviced Suites along Orchard Road, which is just a few meters away from our old place. Here in this pic on my last day of work, and last day in Singapore.

Monday Mood: Macarons and Mother's Day in France

Yesterday was Mother's Day in France. They call it, Fête des meres. I personally prefer having Mother's Day celebration on this date because it is in France that I became a mother.

My Trusted Skin Care Products

It's always difficult to give your whole-hearted trust and loyalty to anything or anyone because more often than not, you get betrayed or let down. And I know you'll agree with me that this is also true when it comes to beauty and skin care products. Today, I am sharing with you some of my tried and tested, trusted names in skin care:

My favorite body lotion -- Crabtree and Evelyn. I used to get the Goat Milk scent, but they discontinued it several years ago.
