Seven years ago (gosh has it been that long???) I lived for about ten months in Paris. It was one of the most wonderful experiences in my life. Until now I still keep dreaming about all the food I ate while I was there. Do you want to know something though? The food that I keep dreaming about is not even French food at all. Ironic right? It was food from all other nationalities living in Paris. In my opinion, the Chinese food was the best in Paris. The Greek, the Japanese and the Indian food was amazing. The Lebanese (first time I ever tried this kind of cuisine) in Paris was also so, so good. My roommate and I used to go to this stand near the Pompidou that had the BEST wraps. Their wraps consisted of ingredients that I didn't even think worked well together like mint and grilled cheese.

|Sala Chaussures : Titania|
Today's whimsical wednesday post is all about the Titania Pumps from my shoe line, Sala Chaussures. Our holiday 2014 collection was inspired by the stories and characters of one of the most famous writers of all time, William Shakespeare. The Titania pumps are an ode to the Queen of Fairies from "A Midsummer Night's Dream"

Sausage and seaweed? You're probably thinking it's a weird combination but I found that they taste really good together! I first discovered this great combination in one bazaar. There was a food stall serving Japanese fusion dishes. Their dishes were composed of hotdogs with rice and all these wonderful Japanese flavors. A few mornings ago, I found that our helper had prepared plain hotdogs for breakfast and a light bulb went off in my brain. Why don't I try to recreate what I ate at the Bazaar?

Dresses are the chicest and fail safe items that you can throw on - especially if you're in a hurry. Stocking up my closet with stylish short dresses is a must, you never know which day you'll oversleep and not have time to find a nice outfit. Grab one of your dresses and look effortless and glam all day. I've been on the hunt to replenish my wardrobe and some of the ones I found are from the Something Borrowed collection at Zalora. Their dresses are really cute and affordable. Also found some really good ones from Romwe and Charlotte Russe. Check them out!

I think that no matter what situation you are in, it's always a great idea to look pretty and stylish. Sleepwear should be, asides from comfortable, be fun and feminine! My mom always tells me that I should wear nice and proper night clothes, you know just in case there is an emergency and you might have to run out the house or something. I know that sounds kind of crazzy but you know, it can't hurt to look nice even while in slumber :)

For my last birthday, my cousin gave me this really awesome cookbook called "Engagement Chicken" It is a really fun and girly cookbook that had a lot of recipes that every woman should know and one of them turned out to be Chicken Provencal. I have heard of this dish before but I realized that I have not actually ever tried or cooked it myself! I read the recipe and made a version of it. I did my own modifications too. The result is a really flavorful and delicious dishes with herbs and wine and other ingredients like olives pimiento. Read on to see more!
