appreciate: JR

I think some of the most moving pieces of modern art are the ones that interact with our everyday lives. French artist JR takes that philosophy and runs with it. JR is known for a different kind of street art, where he flyposts large scale black and white photographs in public spaces that usually have … Continue reading

watch: The Intouchables

This Labor Day weekend, I was able to binge watch several movies that I have neglected on my Netflix list (it still feels weird to say that instead of Netflix queue). One new film that I watched that I instantly fell in love with was the French dramedy, “The Intouchables”. Starring popular French actors, Francois … Continue reading

listen: Daft Punk

Songs: Get Lucky, Doin’ It Right, One More Time Not including their work on the soundtrack for the sci-fi action film, “Tron”, it has be 8 years since the French electronic duo, Daft Punk, has released new music. That all changed last week when their highly anticipated fifth studio album, “Random Access Memories” debut at … Continue reading

eat: Macarons- The Saint Tropez Treat

I was a little late to the macaron trend. I first saw them in the Sophia Coppola film, “Marie Antoniette”. I was obsessed with the aesthetic of that film, which included the shots of the pastel colored treat so I was instantly interested on getting my hands on one. Unfortunately, they weren’t very popular in … Continue reading

Watch: Love Me If You Dare

When it comes to movies, I try to be open minded, watching everything from documentaries to independent films to foreign films. One day, I was bored and wanted to watch a movie on Netflix and I came across the French romantic comedy, “Love Me If You Dare” starting one of my favorite actresses, Marion Cotillard … Continue reading

Appreciate: Pierre Soulages

French artist Pierre Soulages is a jack of all trades. He is a sculptor, engraver, but is mostly known for his abstract paintings. Most of his works are a study on the color black. He creates striations in the black surface in his paintings to so that when light is reflected on it, the black … Continue reading

Eat: French Apple Tart

Thanksgiving is around the corner, which means my annual duty of making dessert is fast approaching. Of course, we always have pumpkin pie, but I also like to make an apple crisp. Because of this blog, I have decided to switch up and (attempt) to make a French apple tart. I know my patience will … Continue reading

Listen: M83

Songs: Midnight City, Graveyard Girl, Couleurs France’s M83,  the brain child of Anthony Gonzalez, seems to get bigger in popularity and sound each year. “Midnight City” was the song no one could or wanted to escape in 2011, which was the lead single off the double album, “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming”. It popped up in … Continue reading

Eat: Crepe Suzette

I was watching “The New Normal” a couple nights ago and one of the main character’s mom made him crepe suzette, which apparently was his favorite dessert. I have had crepe suzette before but I had no idea that it required the crepes to be doused with liquor and lit on fire to produce the thick caramel … Continue reading

Wear: Catherine Malandrino Spring 2013

For her Spring 2013 collection, Catherine Malandrino seemed to inspired by a young Parisian woman. The collection  had a cool color palette and was mostly sporty, but with an edge. Almost every fabric and technique known to mankind was used in her exhibit: mesh, croquet, fringe, scalloped edges, draping, you name it. While the elements sound … Continue reading

Appreciate: François Marie Banier

My first introduction to artist/photographer/novelist/playwright/actor François Marie Banier was through the Diane von Furstenberg campaign he did in 2008. He photographed model Natalia Vodianova in black and white and then painted  and wrote all over her pictures with bright colored paints. After seeing these advertisements, I had to know more about the famed French photographer and it … Continue reading

Eat: Buckwheat Crepes with Smoked Salmon and Crème Fraîche

If I actually made the time, my ideal breakfast would be a whole-wheat bagel with cream cheese and lox. Very random, I know, but thinking about the different combinations of flavors and textures is making me salivate. The grainy bagel, the creamy, cool cheese, and the salty salmon – you want one too, don’t you? … Continue reading

Appreciate: Arman “Red Tubes of Paint” 1980

I stumbled upon this artist, Arman Pierre Fernandez or simply Arman, when I was doing research for a marketing class I took senior year. I was immediately taken by Armen’s use of materials and after I finished my assignment, I went on a hunt to find more about the artist. Arman was a French artist who regularly integrated … Continue reading
