i’m in the mood for love


wow, the night just flew by. it’s already 9:30pm and i’m afraid of just how long i got lost surfing tonite. oh well i’m not going to beat myself up about it cause the places i went were spellbinding and nothing short of soul food.


i’m planning a couple shopping trips with clients in paris over the next couple weekends and i’m nostalgic for the city i love. why does it never get old?  these shots on pintrest led me on my wild ride to nowhere and i loved every minute of it.


still, if i’m gonna have a night i better get going. so i hope you enjoy some of tonite’s folly and that you’re having a bit of it yourself!


why does indulging in surfing seem like that, an indulgence? it’s downright fun to enjoy what everyone’s doing.


ok really, good night!



oh it’s friday, have a great weekend!






d’accord, bonne nuit jusqu’a demain!


ps:  please check out the inimitable karen sugarman, she’s having a sale on her handmade jewels and they’re sheer bliss!

    Have a fabulous jaunt in Paris over the next few weeks. I will close my eyes tonight thinking of everything magical and opulent about France thanks to these lovely photos. We are wrapping up watching the Le Tour this evening & that ‘ain’t’ bad either for French inspiration!

    Glad life is good Claudia.

    Safe travels and sweet dreams

    Dear Claudia,
    It really has been far too long since I last visited your blog. Working on my own magazine and a number of projects has made me lose track of time (isn’t it always like that?). But today like you I was surfing for fun and remembered my favourite Paris blog. As always you’ve posted things that inspire and satisfy. I must stop by more often :)


  12. Molly/Fleur de Bee replied:

    I just got back and am still on cloud 9! Hope to join you…maybe next year. I could have used a guide in some areas. Long story, but I made it home safe haha! I keep forgetting to add you to my blog’s “Inspiration” list. You are there now. Thanks always for the eye candy over the years! x-Molly

    That first image of the champagne and cake made me remember my New Years party. How fabulous it was. Thanks for triggering the thought :-)

    oh so pretty — all of it.

    Who needs to surf? I just let you do it and then come and sigh over the results on here afterward… maybe it tells you something about my energy levels today that I am sighing in particular over the bed photographs – I love the two beds in the corner… Maybe I’ll blog about beds tomorrow as an homage!
