“Tres idiomas,Trois langues, Three languages” miniseries, Day Three

2019-06-06 09.42.59 2.jpg

Today is the Final Day of my Language miniseries!

Some of my readers may know that I speak French, but for those that don’t “Bonjour, mes amis!” I decided to learn French in high school where I took three years of it, meanwhile the majority of my friends opted for Spanish or Spanish for Native Speakers. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then I went on to college where I minored in Francophone Studies. So that’s just a little background of my Frenchie side! Nowadays, I use my newly profound language by occasionallyย  listening to French music, watching French films, and reading books in French. I’ve fallen in love with the rap/pop vibes of Gims and the very talented Romain Duris (I’ve seen 5 of his films!) and all the way in outer space with the novel Le Petit Prince. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sometimes I feel as God has blessed me by giving me the most random encounters with French speaking people. I’ll list a few below. ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Four summers ago, I was trekking up Lombard Street and I stumbled upon a French family.

2.ย  On the road to Raleigh, my family stopped to a Burger where I meet a small group of Congolese people.

3. On a separate occasion, when I worked in retail there was a Congolese family that would go grocery shopping often.

4. One time I applied to local thrift store where the owners happened to be from Quebec.

I may be missing more encounters but those were my most memorable ones!ย  ย They hopefully won’t be the last and I look forward to many more ๐Ÿ˜‰

On a side note, I thought I’d share some photos of my trip to Paris exactly two summers ago that I’d never got around to posting. Check them out on my Instagram @cisne.rose !!

Halloween Costume OOTD Look

Happy Halloween everyone!

I don’t normally do OOTD posts, but I figured I’d roll with it and do something totally fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you don’t already know, I love all things French! I love the French culture from its food, French films, music and all things in between!

I originally had a different Halloween DIY costume in mind but my terrible planning skills didn’t allow me much time. However, I went with my plan b: the French person. ๐Ÿ™‚

My outfit look:

Beret: H&M

Jeans: J. Crew

Leather Jacket: Marshalls; this is vegan material ๐Ÿ™‚

Striped long sleeve: Target

Ankle boots: Aldo

Scarf: Thrifting, not sure where it is from. It had no brand tag, sorry!

The only new piece I bought for my look was my beret!ย  Everything was something I already owned. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope everyone has a safe Halloween! Au Revoir!

Love,
