Hello beautiful people, what happened to Spring? Let’s have a giggle instead.

First thing first though: a big thank you for all of you who made my day so special. This was a “tsunami of love”, and I am still smiling. Thank you so much.

Miss J kindly wrote: “Always a pleasure in reading your emails, it makes me smile when I am feeling a little down. Thanks for all your great tips”. Very grateful to you Miss J. If you feel the same, please UPDATE your subscription preferences at the very end of this email as the DATA PROTECTION LAW is changing this month. Be careful as the unsubscribe option is just next to it! Thank you for updating as I don’t want to lose you. You are precious, and it makes me very happy to make you smile.

Now, let’s go back to giggles.
As you know, I’m 50 now and I must agree with Jean Gabin, a very charismatic French actor who once said: “As you get older, you recognize idiots far quicker”. Brutal but so true. I may rephrase it though by saying that you appreciate the value of time therefore you don’t waste it anymore. Your “antennas” become refined. You pay more attention to people’s actions than to their words. Of course, people have different vibrations to which you may or may not resonate with. No judgement there however the older you become, the less you engage with those who hide behind a mask, who play safe, who lie to themselves therefore to you. You go straight to the point. Everybody teaches you something, and sometimes they simply remind you of what you don’t want in your life anymore. My sister sent me a T-shirt saying: ”I don’t give a damn, I’m a princess”… I think that says it all. I may not marry Harry but I’m a princess. Be a princess, know who you are and what you deserve. Be a prince …and give me a call! What are you waiting for?

My latest food obsession is Bombay mix. Do not worry, dark chocolate is still very much present on a daily basis, and it is not going anywhere except on my French derriere. More seriously, what is it made of? I’m talking about Bombay mix here so we are clear. No transition whatsoever… As you know, it is generally made of lentils, nuts, chickpeas, noodles, flaked rice, onion and spices like cumin, coriander, turmeric, chili and salt. Is it good for me? Probably not all of it however if my body craves it then there must be a good reason for it. Those spices warm up my body, and are packed with anti-inflammatory goodies. That’s good enough for me. Let’s enjoy our food and not listen to the latest food guru. Your body knows best so listen to it. So what do you feel like?

I don’t know about you but this year, hay fever has been pretty intense. Thanks God, Echinacea drops saved me most of the time. I highly recommend them as they allowed me to do some serious gardening during which I had a brief encounter with a gorgeous Robin. I did feel like Snow White talking to birds. I saved him from my singing, don’t worry. But this precious moment made me appreciate that even though I’m living in London with 8 million people, I’m still surrounded by wildlife, and this is comforting. Let’s do our bit and protect those beautiful creatures who put a smile on our face. They’ve adapted themselves to us, let’s do the same for them.

Sometimes as we reflect, we appreciate that there is something more to life. We are not here to pay bills and die. No, we are not. We are searching for something we can’t even see or identify however we know we have something else to give to this world. We have a purpose. We all have a very unique reason to be here. So let’s appreciate how special we are, and listen within knowing that we are being guided to the right people at the right time. All will be revealed perfectly. Let’s trust the process.

Sending you all so much love. And please remember to update your subscription preferences. Thank you, princes and princesses!
