Ma mère est de retour

** Thank you Bluefish for the correction on my title!

..I'm not even positive that this title is gramatically correct in french. Anyone?

Anyway, my mom arrived home from a very fun-filled week in Paris yesterday, and we spent most yesterday catching up. She told me all about her trip, and made me miss Paris just that little bit more.

On the bright side, she brought me back a very unexpected present! I love Longchamp bags, and if you've ever been to Paris, or anywhere in europe really, you've probably seen them. I have a small one in navy that I use as a purse quite often, but my mom brought me back a tote-sized one similar to the bottom photo in a beautiful cream colour. Its big enough to fit my laptop and assorted school books, and I have to admit I'm in love with it! Its perfect for school, work and travelling.

Longchamp Bag

Things in my household seem to have resumed back to normal, The Cat went back to sleeping with my mom, and I have to admit I felt a little lonely last night not having 16lbs of fur waking me up intermitently throughout the night. Go figure. I spent the majority of last week b*tching about The Cat, and now I miss her.

The weather here is absolutely amazing today. 27degrees C with a HUMIDEX of 30! I'm living it up today as much as I can. I broke out my jean skirt and flip flops for the first time this year.

I hope everyone around the world is having good weather today too! I especially hope for my fellow Bloggers from the Netherlands that you guys have good weather for Queen's Day this week! Its not a celebration I'm familiar with, but it sounds very exciting.


  1. Ma mère est de retour is the correct sentence.

  2. thank you!

    Its amazing, after 7 years of school french, I can barely put together a simple sentence properly

  3. Thank you for the Queen's Day wishes & what a cool bag! Enjoy the nice weather!

  4. I love the Longchamp tote! I always bring mine to the airport, it's great for traveling

  5. You are so lucky, I've been coveting a Longchamp tote (in black, like the one in the picture!) ever since I went to Paris last May. They seem so versatile, and great for just tossing everything in while still looking chic.

    Thank you for the good weather wishes! Today was so rainy and cold, hopefully Thursday will be sunny!

  6. my uncle used to send me longchamp bags from dubai... i always thought they were knockoffs... you know - dubai!! :p but i found out recently that they are all the real deal! not that it matters to me, because i never much care about fake vs designer, i love them anyway!

  7. Thanks for your comments everyone! I used "the bag" to take to my one class yesterday, and I'm even more in love with it!

    I'm already mentally calculating if it will fit all my carry-on stuff this summer so I can take it to europe with me :)
