This year, one of the most beautiful holidays of the year: Mother's Day is the 26 May. To have a little advance to choose the gift of this beloved mother is the least thing. Take time to guess what will make her happy to spoil her as she deserves. Not always so easy to know what she wants. Nec plus Ultra will go shopping and propose ideas.
13 rue de la Paix, Paris
Today I wandered rue de la Paix and I found interesting the showcase of the Garland house 13, rue de la Paix. Pretty pearls at very affordable prices with 20% on the items offered and 5% more if you come from Nec plus Ultra. We love !
Margareth & me
Ephemeral shop until the end of May: 19, rue Duphot - Paris
Each week we will propose some ideas to please this wonderful woman who is a mother
What to wear for a life dreamed by some and lived by others more privileged but not always well advised ... Fashion offers an anthology of proposals from the most classic to the most creative. But where to wear these wonders, we dare or not? most of the time we do not dare, we choose the most sober, the most discreet, the most classic. What a pity !
This season Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2019, I had trouble dreaming: too much déjà vu, too many inspirations, too useless, too many "products", too much commercial, and then a lot of creative designers "Go around in circles" and propose again and again variations of their favorite models. In short, we often get bored. Nothing is ever completely lost, you have to watch, let yourself go to emotion and daring. Some models of some fashion shows attract attention and take you to all corners of the world. I "let go" and heated up (in dream) my black centurion map of an imaginary life. A delight !
In 2003, the Bon Marché dedicates a magnificent exhibitionto the couturier- photographer - booksellerKARL LAGERFELD.
There were portraits of the man in the catogan throughout the store,silhouettes,drawings, clothes, photos of the master.Greatpreviewheectriséby the presence of star designer.
Surrounded by his team, KARL LAGERFELD distributed smiles, some funny words and kisses (I had mine). He spoke in 4 languages at once(French, English, Italian, German)such asafterthe parades or international journalists were fighting to approach him.Itamused him a lot.I enjoyed every piece of this exhibition that said a lot about the personality of this fascinating man, what curiosity, what energy, what culture, what elegance of heart. I thought I had seen everything from this exhibition when Idiscoveredin an almost hidden cornera helmetauGodon a small pedestal–below a representative drawingCOCO CHANEL and KARL, Côte to côyou.

Valentine's Day my favorite holiday, that of lovers. She falls every year on 14 February. This February 14 269 is however a fatal date, it is the anniversary date of the martyr and the decapitation of Valentine. Unjust punishment to him who converted to Christianity a young Roman and his family and who gave sight to Julia, the daughter of his jailer. Julia was in love with Valentin. This is the legend.
The party is Thursday, the tradition is that we exchange that day: sweet words and small gifts.
The ideas of Nec plus Ultra.
Red or pink to tell the greyness and the heart to warm up the gloom of the atmosphere.
The cabinet is 9, rue de Mulhouse in Paris in the 2ème arrondissement. The environment is quite noisy, there is a heavy wooden door, but soon closed the calm of the small courtyard that must be crossed to get to Catherine Marin already puts you in condition, coolife. The time will stop 1h30 and we will leave fresh, relaxed with a radiant complexion.
At first you must undress and stay in panties. Catherine examines you from head to toe. The body and its postures have no secret for it. She is a podiatrist and followed with passion and interest all the course of Chinese medicine: light overweight, scoliosis, asymmetry of standing posture, etc., nothing escapes him. Then she makes you lie down on the table, put on socks and cover you with a blanket. It's nice out. A light musical background lulls you as it stretches your lower legs and massages your feet. For the moment, nothing to do with the complexion? Yes, exactly. While cleaning the skin of the face and décolleté with a depolluting gel reducing pores to penetrate the antioxidant and moisturizing serums, it explains you that the epidermis is the black box of the body, to treat the face requires d maintain the physiology of the body that impacts the imperfections of the epidermis. A mask follows. She uses SKICEUTICALS anti-aging products. Pose the mask then comes the moment almost magical massage. Zone by zone, his hands touch the forehead, the cheeks, the neck, the cleavage, then they begin again by pinching slightly, his fine fingers penetrate the products with quick gestures of little palpated rolled. We close our eyes we let go, we're good. If need a little pressotherapy to find light legs, a little massage and body acupuncture to optimize the effects on the face. Rest a few minutes.
We get dressed, we take tea (bio) we look at ourselves in the mirror. The skin is clear, the complexion glowing. We maintain at home thanks to the advice that Catherine puts in writing, like a prescription, so that the care persists in the time. We come out without the need to remix. Effective.
