Ma Vie en Rose
Love List for February 10, 2012
I decided to take a retro look back at all the things I loved and still love from my old High School days and a couple of years after!
Right after High School, I went on holiday in Mexico City.
It was wonderful!
I climbed this Sun Pyramid, and when I finished it, I felt like I could kiss the sky. Didn't find out until much later that the base of The Sun Pyramid and the Pyramid in Cairo are exactly the same size! Creeeeepppy Cooolll!
My idea of romance... fine dining with a dark Prince and reading Anais Nin to each other.
The combination of this movie and book has all the ingredients of my passions now! Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Monica Bellucci, Antony Hopkins, vampires, a Texan with a big bowie knife, the outfits, the romance, the magic, the authors, the writing, the eroticism.
I could go on, however I think you get the picture!
I love this tour, The Girlie Show.
I think I must be stuck in this Madonna phase, because I love the costumes, the creativity, the songs, I love her!
The style in this tour is very Euro, I seen versions of these styles in the streets of Bordeaux everyday. Hummm, Interesting!!!
At the time, I didn't realize my connection with Nirvana and Kurt Cobain.
I remember hearing his songs, but not listening.
I saw the MTV Music awards where Axl Rose got in Kurt's face, and Kurt said he laughed at him. After that is when I started hearing him.
I tuned in because I understood why he laughed in his face.
He laughed because Axel was so blind, so stupid, so self important, such an incredibly sad person, it was funny. So, Cobain laughed.
I understood and I still understand.
I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news of his passing.
I was at work, getting ready to edit a story to run on air when I heard the news, I stopped, turned my head, and thought that's sad and that sucks, and went on my way.
Bonjour et Bienvenue!
Thank you for stopping by for a spell!
I am a 40-something year old American woman. Born in Texas, raised in Las Vegas!
Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
