Happy times!

It is mayhem right now but I wanted to quickly drop by to say that I am currently in Chicago for one of my very good friend's wedding. I am excited beyond words and cannot wait.  If I am not too emotional and happy (read tipsy), I will take pictures of my bridemaid's dress and much more. Speaking of weddings, my sister over at Wedding By Design is giving tips on how to use African bangles as napkins rings. To see more and get more tips, click here and tell her big sis says what za!

So fresh and so clean, clean!

This couple just epitomizes it all: glamour, fame, love, healthy kids...we don't know what goes on behind close doors but don't they seem to have it all? Simply put, Will and Jada Smith are a grade A couple. Here they were earlier today at a fundraising dinner. The dinner is part of the 3 days birthday celebration for my adopted grand-father: Nelson Mandela. Happy 90th birthday Madeba! I love Jada's dress, the color is to die for. Will -a.k.a Mr. Fafa- is so yummy. It's ridiculous. I love his navy suit.

Essentiel pour le sport

Chaque début d'année, je suis de ces personnes pour qui faire régulièrement de l'activité physique est une nouvelle résolution, mais chaque année je me désiste après quelques jours. Dernièrement, je relisais les bienfaits du sport et ça m' a donné le courage de vouloir commencer mon jogging chaque matin. Le problème c' est  que je n' ai pas le moindre équipement. La dernière fois que je me suis acheté une vraie paire de tennis remonte  aux années 90, au lycée. J'ai donc commencé à magasiner pour ma tenue de sport. Espérons... [Lire la suite]

Watch your time!

Hi guys ! I have pretty much been busy these last days. So busy that I did not have time to write a new post, nor chat whith other bloggers. I didn't even get to watch the Sex and the City movie. Time goes so fast that I sometimes wonder if there are really 24 hours in a day. Thinking about how precious time is, I realized that I needed a new watch. I haven't worn one in a while mainly because a quick glance at my cell phone tells me what time it is. But, this timepiece is still an important accessory to have on the wrist every...

Monsieur & Madame Cannon

Coucou ladies! Now, I know this has nothing to do with this blog...but I am having a very busy week and whenever I get to escape the crazyness, all I hear about is Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. My girls and I have been blabbing about how quick they got married and if it was going to last..yadi yada! People date for years and divorce 8 months later and vice-versa. Everybody is wondering how and why and I am saying why not? Look how happy they look together. I am rooting for them. It's TOO cute!!!!

Louis Vuitton wants her to stop her darfur campaign

I realize this is about 3 weeks old; but I was debating if I should post this or not since The Perfect Touch is a "light" blog. But to that I am saying whatever! Lol. 26 year old Nadia Plesner an artist and designer from Denmark is being sued by Louis Vuitton for using one of their products in her art piece. Shouldn't Louis Vuitton write a check to support the cause as opposed to suing the artist? To each its own I guess. To read more about Plesner's ordeal, click here and to learn more about the situation in... [Lire la suite]

What my spring smells like

"Where should one use perfume?" a young woman asked. "Wherever one wants to be kissed," I said. Coco Chanel Although I do not particulary want to be kissed, I always use pefume. In fact, I am guilty of having too many; so much so that I rotate them according to the weather. Sometimes, a captivating scent is all you need to be remembered. The cutest outfit or the most passionate speech is often forgotten but a scent seldom is. If you don't believe me, read Perfume the novel by Patrick Süskind which explores... [Lire la suite]

An existential question...posted by F.

Is the scrunchie back in fashion? Remember the Sex and the City episode when Carrie declared to Burger (the writer who broke up with her on a post-it...shame on him!) that not a single woman in Manhattan will be seen wearing a scrunchie? Well I would have even bet my car that no woman alive and mentally stable will be seen wearing a scrunchie in public...regardless of her location...period. Well...a couple of people at Neiman Marcus beg to differ and posted the picture below on their website. So does that mean the scrunchie is... [Lire la suite]
