Yesterday I felt like a true French, for no specific reason I guess, but I felt very at home running through the wet streets of Lyon. My brother came to visit for the weekend, and his visit made me realize, that there after all does live a little French mademoiselle inside of me. Here´s a few examples:
I cross the streets like a pro (my brother, a law-obidient Finn did what I did in the beginning when moving here - obeyed the lights and crosswalks. Whereas I do like the French, aka cross whenever you want to, wherever you want to, who has time to wait for a green light anyways?), I point out when someone eats bread the "wrong" way, take cheap wine for granted and correct peoples French-pronunciation (not that I master the language, still a long way to go on that sector), I´m always late, think it´s way too early to eat dinner before 8pm (in Finland we do early dinners) and I´ve learned to complain that the weather is way too cold, when the temperatures drops under 12c (in Finland, whenever the temperatures hit two digits it´s luxury).
Anyways, I want to show off my new Wollen Wraparound Coat from Zara, which I´m deeply in love with. It´s the perfect combination of sophistication and playfulness, to make it my favorite fall coat so far.
I have some really exciting news to share with you, but you´ll have to wait a bit though. Have patience, it´s something worth waiting for!
I have a Skype-date waiting with my mom, dad and Nacho. Come back again tomorrow!
