Cité Fleurie

« La Cité Fleurie » - the name indicates of course that you should find a lot of flowers. Well, then mid-January is perhaps not the best time for a “flower-visit”, but I was anyhow so happy to manage to get into this little haven, in the middle of the 13th arrondissement, normally closed for “strangers” - but sometimes you are lucky. There are 29 small pavilions here, all artist studios … and only artists are admitted. The buildings are from the 1880’s and the building materi...

The 13 Celebrity #10YearChallenge Photos That Blew Our Minds

On Wednesday, Virgil Abloh presented his latest collection for his label Off-White during Paris Men's Fashion Week featuring a few familiar faces, like rappers Playboi Carti and Cardi B's (maybe, soon-to-be) ex-husband Offset who walked very slowly along the runway almost as if to say "do you see this coat?!"

British PM May wins no-confidence vote, but is still beset by Brexit

By JILL LAWLESS and DANICA KIRKA LONDON — British Prime Minister Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote in Parliament on Wednesday to remain in office — but saw more of her power ebb away as she battled to keep Brexit on track after lawmakers demolished her European Union divorce deal. May won a narrow victory, 325 votes to 306 votes, on an opposition motion seeking to topple her government and trigger a general election. Now it’s back to Brexit, where May is caught between the rock of her ow...

Henry, Vieira reunion ends in stalemate on Cote d’Azur

Paris (AFP) – It was honours even between Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira as the old France and Arsenal teammates clashed for the first time as coaches on Wednesday in a controversy-laden 1-1 draw between Monaco and Nice. The presence of the two greats in the respective dugouts made an international event out of what is usually little more than a hotly contested local derby on the Cote d’Azur. It was a spicy encounter, with Allan Saint-Maximin putting Nice ahead before youngster Benoit Badiash...

A Parsi art historian rediscovers his heritage on a trip across Iran

What do you mean you’re from New Zealand?” a shopkeeper in Mozaafarieh named Omid exclaimed. We were in the carpet quarter of Tabriz’s Grand Bazaar, and I had just told him that I was a Kiwi Parsi. “Look at yourself: you’re a son of Persia. Welcome home.” This was one of many similar reactions my Zoroastrian identity elicited in Iran. It made me teary, as I walked alone through the vaulted streets of the world’s largest covered bazaar. By Areez Katki, When I told my family I was going  ...

Morning Coffee: How could Andrea Orcel let this happen? The most dysfunctional relationship between an analyst and an MD

Early in the year, we already have a candidate for the craziest job move of 2019.  Andrea Orcel’s move from Head of Investment Banking at UBS to CEO-designate of Santander is off. How can this be? Well, according to the early news reports, Orcel and Santander had both presumed that he would get some sort of “good leaver” status with respect to his enormous accrued deferred pay. This presumption was based on the fact that Santander doesn’t compete directly with UBS and has been a very good invest...

Seen on a Walk

Walking around Paris, there are always new things to see along with the traditional. In the holiday season panettone bread is seen for sale. This particular one is limoncello flavor and I saw some with Amaretto flavor too. Graffiti-kind of cute. A charming little side street with only pedestrian traffic. I like to step into the lobbies of small boutique hotels, especially when they are as nice as this one. This is the season of King Cakes, or galette de roi king...

The tortures of adapting Samuel Richardson’s ‘Pamela’

The term “bestseller” is a bit of a stretch for the eighteenth century, when books were expensive (though widely shared), and information about print-runs is hard to come by. But if any early novel deserves the title, it’s Samuel Richardson’s Pamela, which on publication in 1740 rapidly caught the imagination of Britain, Europe, and indeed America (the Philadelphia printing by Benjamin Franklin was the first unabridged American edition of any novel).The author of this innovative novel was a lead...

Changes to Eurail in 2019

Long before WOW and Norwegian Air had $99 airfares luring young people across the pond, there was Eurail, the post-World-War-II, trans-European train network that offered dirt cheap, all-you-can-ride passes for intrepid Americans looking to explore a region just recovering from the most destructive war in history. What resulted was the first iteration of the Euro-trip, a rite-of-passage trip for young adults in the summers between college spent riding the rails in a place that, at the time, c...

Lancome Le Monochromatique Review & Swatches

Lancome Le Monochromatique is a new eyes, cheeks, and lips cream-to-powder tint that acts as an eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick which launched in nine shade selections for $25 each. I headed to Nordstrom and picked up one shade to try out sadly, they didn’t have the really bold, bright red shade I wanted called Soiree so I ended up with a bright pink called Petit Bisou.

Word of the week: Furlough

The longest government shutdown in U.S. history began on December 22, 2018, when Congress and the White House failed to break an impasse over a spending bill. It is now in its fourth week. An estimated 800,000 federal employees are either working without pay – as in the case of thousands of TSA workers at the nation’s airports – or furloughed: sent home, deprived of paychecks, and forbidden to do any kind of work on behalf of the government. “Furloughed employees have no automatic right to paym...
