A shoot under the discreet Parisian flakes…The icy air is the best excuse to take out my pink snuggly jumper! To wear it, I chose navy blue – less hard than black and especially, I find it more romantic.
To add this romantic touch, the selection of jewelry that I wear is also in the shades of pink and silver. Softness and tenderness, they bring lightness to the whole look and a touch of elegance. We chose two long necklaces with pearly reflections that lengthen the silhouette and a brooch to dress the sweater. We dare everything and have combined two statement rings that are a bit like the you and I meeting. The two rings are like the two hands that meet and find each other, which strongly hold each other and whisper beautiful things.

I do not know you but Valentine’s Day is a celebration that wants to be even more omnipresent this year. I was reading again the other day that, as we were approaching February 14th, the connections on the dating websites/apps were on high. Love becomes a real business…Is it a social norm that borders on obligation or a need to come out of a too brutal reality?
The idea of celebrating love is a pretty thing…For me, any occasion can be a pretext to sprinkle some flakes of love. A date imposed by the calendar sometimes puts a little too much pressure and does not necessarily have a personal symbolism. Why not define our own date to celebrate our love?
Valentine’s day rhymes with couple…And all those who are single are a bit left out. You, me, as if we were not really real human beings outside the couple. I thought with humor the other day that I was going to celebrate a Without Valentine’s Day!
We do not have to feel under pressure, guilty or “off” at the approach of this day. If the desire to celebrate this day is felt: the close friends are there and a movie evening is always a moment of shared joy. Or simply, it is also possible to be a little selfish in this 14th of February and to enjoy ourselves in our unrestrained lives. Because in the end, the most important person who need love us is ourselves. If we do not love ourselves, how can we let another person love us?
So let’s begin by loving and caring for us! We need love in our lives and this love can be found in different places but does not depend on the couple. Let us continue to share it with those who are important to us.
I wish you (and I hope for me too) to fall one day on this love that we can share in this “two”, in this “you and me” that creates a “us” that belongs only to “us”.
I like to tell myself that the couple, living together is extra-ordinary. Not necessarily in the sense of the exceptional – although it may feel like this, but rather as what transforms the ordinary life. Extra because the other is a plus, a piece that is added, which is therefore not vital but which colors and makes us savor even more the ordinary.
I’m sending you lots of love because you deserve it!
