Lately in Las Vegas

M and I recently had the opportunity to go to Las Vegas for a performance at the Cosmopolitan. We usually make the trip out to perform a few times a year and we make an effort to try out different restaurants/activities each time we head out. This year the drive out was incredibly foggy. It was fascinating watching the clouds evolve from patchy blue skies...

All I Want for Christmas

This past year I have been making an effort to minimize and get rid of things that I no longer need or use. Things that take up space and serve as distractions from doing the things I want/need to do. Although I have made a lot of progress, I feel as though I still have a long way to go before I arrive at my...

Culture & Cuisine | Les Carottes Rapées // Grated Carrot Salad Recipe

Les Carottes Rapées, or loosely translated, Grated Carrot Salad, is a popular item in France. Lunch or l’apéro (or more correctly, l’apéritif) with my family in Paris almost always includes this item – it’s light and simple to prepare. Plus, it’s delicious! A lot of the foods that we eat in France are not easily available here in the US so M and I often...

Lately in Southern California

It has been a while since I have done a “lately” post and so I thought I would do one this month while working on my NaNoWriMo project since they’re relatively quick and easy to put up. I am also overdue for a language update and a recipe I promised on Instagram, so expect those soon as well. + To start, I recently had a...

Science Fiction and Fantasy Vocabulary in French

I am a book worm and one of my favorite genres, aside from history or historical fiction, is that of la fantaisie/fantasy (fantasy) and la science-fiction (science fiction). I read in French as much as I read in English so I thought I would share some of the most common fantasy/science fiction vocabulary in my reading. Please let me know if you feel if anything...
