My favorite things about traveling (Part 1)

Hello world.

One of my great passion in life is traveling. People have many reasons for why they love going on a trip, but here are my 5 greatest things I love about traveling.

1: Food.

No matter where, no matter what, food is a big deal in my life, and it kinda takes a bigger meaning when I travel. That is because what you eat is sometimes new, not like at home and with many discoveries. Gosh, I love it. And when I rolled in my travel pictures, I just noticed how much food pictures I took. Here are some discoveries I did during my trips (some I already knew but were differently made in other countries).

The amazing sweetness buffets at each party...


Tropical sandwish (more the presentation than the sandwish)

Pizza (my great great love)

Famous cheeses

Dinner party

Hello world.

In October, it was my birthday, so I organized a dinner party for my friends. Even though I still live in my parents' house, and that it is not the prettiest one, I tried to make it warm and cute for the event. I took some pictures of what I did so I could remember later. Here it goes:

The entrée

My outfit

The outfit looked like this, but of course I did not use Oscar de la Renta earrings, neither Chanel lipstick nor Armani tights. But it did look like this. The belt, you may want to know, was a piece of black fabric I used.

I hope you enjoyed my post! How do you prepare for dinner parties? Do you wear fancy clothes or just put on something relaxed? Tell me in the comments!

New Acquisitions

Hello world.

I present you to my new favorite items! I just discovered Etsy, and I kind of abused of it since then. So here are my three new Etsy finds:

First spotted: vintage brooche.

Then I saw those earrings:

 And finally, some times later, I located that gorgeous bag. Soon after, it was mine!

History of Art: Architecture

Since I got in my program at college, I fell in love with one particular class: History of Art. This 3 hours class is a delight, I can't even describe it. My favorite topic is architecture and sculpture, even thought I like paintings too. Anyway, I decided to get fashioned inspired by my class, starting with architecture.

Antic Greece

Antiquity, while it is not the first period including art, is surely the beginning of the grandiose architecture and sculpture. One of the most beautiful temple of Greece is the temple of Erechtheion, with its gorgeous Caryatid statues. Antiquity is all about researching harmony in the lines and greating the gods and godesses. Erechtheion temple is the exception of the harmony, due to the many parts built together. So here is my inspirationnal outfit for this temple.

During summer, the most pleasant thing to do is wearing light dresses like this one. The dress looks like a prayer dress of Antiquity, like we can see in the movie "Troy". Gladiator sandals go well with that bohemian grecian style, and the earrings reminded me of the column volutes. With this style, a nice bun, braids or just loose hair would be perfect. And keep the makeup really light!

Antiquity is synonyme of drapes and softness. That yellow dress looks like the Caryatid statue itself, with the pretty flowers on top and the marble effect. The laurier bracelet refers to the nature engravings of the temples. The shoes are another wink with their ruffles. The color gives more punch to the outfit. Make sure to have your hair up with that kind of dress, that we can see the pretty details around the neck. I know that those outfits seem to apply only to summer time, but it's because Greece is a hot country so that's why I was more inspired by summer items.

Did you like the outfits? How would you get inspired by Antic Greece? Let me know in the comments please!

La dolce life

Ahhh life. This complexe thing in wich we try to survive. A blog isn't gonna change anything about its complexity. But it may help me and you to understand and enjoy it a little better. Let me explain. Writing is a great way to know ourself a little better. Reading too. I am writing, you are reading. How fabulous! Ok. Let's get started.

My name is Isabelle. I live in Quebec city, in Canada. I'm a college student doing a program in languages and cultures. I would like to continue my studies in fashion. What else? I like, wrong, I love to travel. And to dream. I LOVE fashion, so you will see that too. Besides, architecture, art, music, design and decoration, beauty, styling, flowers and nature, food... ok, I have many interests.

Now, important: my writer name (because it's cool to have one, don't laugh) is Bat. Yeah, my friends gave me that name for a stupid story, so it stayed.

Anyway, I just wanted to welcome you on my blog and let you know that I am writing for the pleasure of it. If you enjoy reading me, that would be even more fantastic!

Well, welcome!!!

P.S.: I'm sorry if my English is not really good... my first language is French, so... please, if you see a mistake, don't be afraid to tell me! Thank you again and enjoy =)
