Ten best reasons to Love October

Recently I have been feeling very festive almost on a daily basis. October is here and I love it. Autumn in Paris.

October is the most celebrated month in our family, filled with birthdays and anniversaries. I feel the need to share my celebrations and more reasons to love October:

  • October is the month of my Birthday…to some it might be a sad reminder for getting old     but who’s counting.
  • October is a month filled with mellow warmth and fields are shouting with yellow, gold    and orange glow.
  • The AC unit that still working but feels way cooler even on 75 degrees (live in Florida?).
  • October is delicious. It makes me cook more and host more.
  • October is extra cozy hence my desire to rearrange furniture, rugs and painting some walls.
  • The rain on leafs and petals.
  • I’m a terrible driver on October. I don’t want to look at the road. I want is to stick my nose up against the window and soak up the view. Someone has to take me places.
  • October is the most romantic month of the year, don’t you think?
  • Autumn in October makes me feel that it is here to stay.
  • Driving in the evenings with the moon roof open and looking up at the gorgeous clear sky (not if I am the driver).
  • October is a serious competition with the month of May but guess what…October wins.

Best grand mix of artistry

So you’re a lawyer (if not, let’s assume you are) or have a law-firm, and you have an office where you spent most of your day time hours, sometimes nights too. An office where you have serious meetings, lunches, employees roaming around. But how does your office environment make you or your clients feel? Law is an occupation that throws aura of seriousness but just because you’re a law firm doesn’t mean your surroundings have to be boring or plain dull.

Take this law corporate offices for example, in the heart of New York City, where a brilliant crew of designers and architects brought together a world of contemporary art and custom-made furnishings and turned this law office building into what looks like dazzling, sophisticated and soothing modern gallery. A mix of artistic grandeur. A healthy dose of fun – all in one large space.

What a beauty and how every element works together in harmony is beyond words. Any outside the box thinker would be happy to occupy such artistic and positively inviting and stimulating space. I would.

The whole space is based around sophisticated tones of gray, silver and glass and right there, in the middle of it all, a surprising red pops in the rug, highback chairs, cusions and artwork. Stunning.

What amazes me is that with all the grandeur the space feels subtle and sophisticated without interfering with the seriousness of daily business gatherings and big decision making activities. Indeed, one of a kind law firm spaces I have ever seen.

Shopping Inspiration NY

I love to walk up and down Fifth avenue in New York City whenever I have a chance be it during work or long weekend visits in the city. Not that I am fashion focused or shopaholic “must-have-it kinda gal”, not at all. I find strolling on Fifth avenue a definite positive experience for my eyes and soul.

Ever since I set my foot in this country Fifth avenue never cease to amaze me even more so today, when I can honestly say I became more opinionated than before only because there’s so much to see but then there’s so much to say. A lot have changed here over the years – endless mega size retail shops emphasizing on luxury brands but here is the point of my post. Talk about luxury, the other day I went shopping for something special for my husband, no special occasion. Something small and beautiful but unique and functional – combination that’s hard find these days. And no, I don’t mean an iPhone.

Walking on Fifth I hesitantly, and I repeat hesitantly, walked into the celebrated, luxurious mega retail store by a famous Italian fashion maker, looking for a small “unique and functional” gift idea. really? I don’t even think Armani knows what it means. When I entered the store my eyes immediately noticed a gorgeous looking iPad case that sat on its own on a bottom shelve, looking right back at me. Made of, drum roll please…crocodile skin…in gradation of dark to light purple. Small inside pocket for business cards, smooth and shiny zipper slides up and down and all around. Soft to the touch and very light. Tailored and glamorous in every way – “small, unique and functional” – the perfect gift for my businessman.

Ahhh….I snugged the case close to my chest and whispered to the sales rep who followed my every move, that I finally found exactly what I wanted. Now this line of thinking requires a degree of courage from my side because before I could even blink, the salesman was already by the register ready to ring the piece, while I my brain tried hard to process the mega retail price that I just noticed on my “small unique and functional” gift, that would make me kiss…….$28k goodbye. Ha. pocket change to some.

The man smiled at me and asked if I want it gift wrapped. I smiled back and handed him my dream iPad case then I said: “You know, you got two things going for you: 1. Your blue eyes. and 2. Your French accent.

I love French accent.
