Turn your instagram pictures into magnets

i have to say, it is pretty ingenious. i have been a 100% addicted to instagram since i got my iphone. actually, i am pretty sure, i only got my iphone to use this app. i am dying to try this ! i want my instagram pictures on my fridge !! 

it is $14.99 per sheet of 9 and they ship all over the world ! the time when you lived in France and couldn't have access to any American service is over! and the best is that it only takes 4 to 7 days to be shipped. 

Bagels in France

i am so excited !! i finally found some bagels in lyon! who would know this? i missed my bagels so much! i am obsessed with the cinnamon raisin bagel toasted with cream cheese  that i used to eat almost every day in nyc. healthy, you said? 

so i tried this new place, bagelstein, that i discovered by chance while i was walking home from school. i noticed the bagels were super thin but who cares. so i ordered my sesame bagel with just cream cheese. the girl made me repete my order, she looked confused when i asked for only cream cheese inside my bagel. i should have followed her surprise. it was disgusting. the cream cheese was terrible, they tried to imitate the american cream cheese but please, don't. it is definitely not a good experience and i walked home ... disappointed. 

the most surprising is that after that experience, i looked on the internet if this place was known. and it is! apparently, it is one of the best place to find bagels. they have few stores in paris and lyon. i am sorry guys but you are not a good address. 

I need my TV channels and Internet

{trying to install the cable}

I NEED my TV !!!

Since i move back in Lyon, i've been using a public Free Wifi and i am dying to finally watch all the new episodes of my favorite TV Shows. there is nothing worst to be stuck somewhere, with nothing to do and without a good internet connection. i usually watch a movie while i am felling asleep and i am getting tired of watching all over again each seasons of sex and the city and how i met your mother. shame on me, those are the only ones i have on my laptop. 

so the other day, i received a big box for the installation of my internet & TV. i've been trying to make it work but it is still not working. thank god, a cable guy is coming on Tuesday to fix this! i heard so many good things about this "sensation fibre" internet box that i cannot wait to try it!

"Paris Vu par Hollywood" exhibition at Paris City hall

i went this sunday to the last exhibit at paris city hall, "Paris seen by Hollywood".

as any other exhibit at the city hall, it was really short but i really enjoyed it. so the exhibit explores the silver screen's enduring fascination with paris. it features clips,  pictures, extracts of movies and drawings which made the visit a real pleasure! i also saw costumes of few movies that you can see on the second picture. big dresses that made me think about a fashion exhibit.

i would even say, it is a romantic exhibit! But hasn’t the city of lights always been romanticized in films? i have to say, this exhibit stimulated my pride to be from paris. it is amusing to go through all those american movies, from the silent movies to the action movies of the 21st century and realize how many times paris has been featured! it is also nice to see how paris was and still is inspiring.

Why it is good to be back?

one word.. FOOD

{my ham sandwich}
when i was in the US, i was dying for one simple thing: a ham sandwich made with French baguette. 

Okay, you know how Americans love to make everything greasy and flavorish. which i am not criticizing,  there is nothing better than a breakfast burrito at 9am. i am making a generality but my meals were always so heavy and not simple..! for example, i was always yelling at my boyfriend who constantly added dishes or sauce to a simple meal. one day, i made a simple salad and all my roomates looked at me like i was a rabbit. you know how it s good to taste each flavor of what you are eating? do you really need to add bacon on your ice-cream? can 't you just enjoy ice-cream? as a dessert? like it should be?

there is not better place than France to eat. and for that reason, it is good to be back!

Why is it so hard to find a name for your blog?


i may not be an artist but finding the name of my blog took me more time than to think about my first post. i love macarons, i love new york, i thought about the tee shirts and here it is! iheartmacaron! good thing i love baking too, so i will post some recipes and tips on the next pages.  i am french as well so macaron is kind of something that is in my blood since i was born..

i ve been addicted to blogs since new york. i am back in france and so bored in my studies that i thought about killing my time with something i would love doing, and also something that would make me feel like i never left the big apple..

so don't worry, it is NOT about macarons!
