Paris, A Winner & A Song

"Paris is always a good idea." ~ Audrey Hepburn

The winner of the Butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquer Vernis in The Black Knight is Lena of Lenallure.  
Congratulations Lena! I'll be contacting you by email.
Thanks to everyone for entering! I have another fun giveaway coming soon.


A big THANK YOU to the sweet Meggy of Haus of Gala for the Lovely Music Award she bestowed upon my blog. I'm so honored. I love many genres of music including alot of non-English music. Blur is one of my favorite bands ever and "To The End" has to be one of my favorite songs  of theirs. I mean there's an accordion in it. How is awesome that? This version in French is made even better by the guest vocals of the fabulous Francoise Hardy. I think a good song is good no matter the language it's sung in. Do you listen to music in other languages?

I love that picture, it makes being caught in a rainstorm look so much more glamorous than it actually is.

I listen to music in English, French and Spanish with some Japanese, Korean and Manglish {some of Zee Avi's music} thrown in for good luck.
