I really do love living in London, and sharing a bright house with a best friend is more wonderful than I could've hoped. First photo is the view from B's bedroom window, in the second photo are my "I'm sorry for putting a boy before you" flowers...she forgave me ^.^


Reading: Radiguet, Raymond. The Devil in the Flesh
Listening: Lescop

There are friends who are always with you, even if you live miles apart.
Tomorrow I get to go spend time with some of these great people and eat lots of cheese.

Torino e Camogli

This summer I visited Italy for the first time and fell in love. I was lucky as one of my great friends from Paris, Valeria is Italian and she proved to be a fantastic hostess along with her sweet boyfriend Benjamin.
The second photo is of a wonderful capaccio de ricciola we ordered without looking at the prices :-/...vive les belles vacances!

Reading: Kitano, Takeshi. La Vie en gris et rose.

A drawing of me by the lovely François!

At the moment I am:
Watching: Orange is the new black (so addictive!)

Listening: to Vinicio Capossela (longing to be back in Italy)

Postcards from Summer part 1.
A bbq at my new house in London, I have lots of blonde friends! And roses to brighten up a new room full of moving boxes.

Did you notice my new header? My dear friend Faz drew it for me as a present, I really love it :-)
His first BD, Lili and Crok, will be published next year and if you like you can pre-order a copy here!

My talented friend Valeria gave me this picture of me as a leaving present, I absolutely love it and it will be forever on my wall no matter which country I live in. Merci encore bella.

Being taught to dance by someone who thinks she is chief choreographer at the Moscow State Academy sounds awful, but in actual fact it is bloody hilarious.

I've read these books during the past 6 days, I have to say I am pretty proud! Especially as they are all really great and I recommend each one.
As nice as it is to spend days reading I hope my life gets back to normal soon.

J'ai lu les 8 livres ci-dessous pendant les 6 derniers jours et je suis assez fière! Surtout parce qu'ils sont tous supers! Par contre, j'attends le retour à la vie "normale"...

The Whitsun Weddings by Phillip Larkin, School Rumble Vol. 5 de Jin Kobayashi, Le livre de ma mère de Albert Cohen, Short Program.1 de Mitsuru Adachi, Identity by Milan Kundera, Last Night by James Salter, I Am a Cat by Soseki Natsume and Aiko Ito, How Should a Person Be?: A Novel from Life by Sheila Heti.

So now October is here and all we are left with are memories of summer to push us through the winter.

A few weeks ago my friend persuaded me to book last minute flights to Nice. I did and I got to spend 36 hours of sea, sand (pebbles), good food and good wine with nice people. Sometimes I guess it pays not to think too much.

A new song Young Boy Old Heart from my friend's band Lately la la, including a shot of Sara swimming out to sea in Glyfa where I was swimming just a few days ago. Such a beautiful place in Greece.

3 things I like:
1. bonjourjohanna, a great blog my friend Anna introduced me to
2. Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess parfum, it took me ages to find but I'm so happy I did, it smells just like summer.
3. le comptoir général: a great bar, friperie/canteen in the 10e

3 weeks ago my friend Sama and I went to the Cote d'Azur. We made use of the train which goes along the coast and visited lots of places during our short visit: Nice, Villefranche, Juan-les-Pins, Antibes, Cannes and Monaco. Unbelievable to think that this is all just a short journey away from Paris.

Sometimes when everything is going terribly wrong you just need to pack a bag and go back home. 2 wonderful days with your parents might be just what you need ♡
