The State of Things

Bonjour! Hola! Hello! Je ne veux pas travailler...

It's true, I don't feel like working and I miss the days when I had more time to dedicate to this blog. For months now I have been thinking about Moi Je Joue and all the updates to the content, the look and feel of it that I would love to make. I've decided that as soon as I am past tomorrow's flamenco production of Snow Queen, I will be dedicating more time here again. Until then though, here are the very few but ever time-consuming reasons why I have been so silent here (if you were even at all curious...):
  • Travel. I have been fortunate enough over the past six months to visit the Philippines, New York, Madrid and Paris. In a few weeks, I plan to add Seattle to that list as well.
  • Work. I am at work almost full time now and when I am not there, I'm busy starting a new business, which I hope to share with you soon!
  • Dance. When I'm not travelling or working, I fill my evenings with flamenco dance at the Vancouver studio, Karen Flamenco. I rehearse, perform, set design and manage some of their online properties, including their blog and social media. 
  • Family. It seems that we are always having family visit and that, of course, takes priority. 
I've decided, enough distractions. I'm planning to give Moi Je Joue a bit of a new look and I'm excited to begin a better balancing act! Until then...

Adiós & Au revoir!

Style: Simple Rings

Bling and perfectly matching set of earrings, necklace, bracelet and ring? Not really my kind of frosting. But there is something about the beautifully simple pieces.
Here are a few of my favourite simple rings...

 1. Catbird Hammered First Knuckle Ring | 2. Bario Neal Fishtail, rose gold | 3. Bario Neal Knottedrush, rose gold | 4. Indulgent Designs Infinity Knot | 5. Katrina Lapenne Braid | 6. Blanca Monrós Gómez (the best for last)

Beautiful, no? Any one of these pieces would make a lovely gift or even as a wedding band, though not very traditional ;)

Outhouse Apple Orchard, NY


And I'm back after a long hiatus! Hello from North Salem, New York! What a whirlwind life has been lately! I can't wait to share photographs of the recent production I performed and designed props for, Karen Flamenco's Snow Queen!
For now, here are a few shots from my recent adventures from this morning in North Salem, New York. It's very peaceful and fabulously sunny! The horses and woodpeckers outside my window are wonderful views to have while working on the computer... It's been a relaxing Thanksgiving adventure. Enjoy the photographs and stay tuned for more!
Don't you just love what one can do with Instagram? Check out my page there!

Milk, Chai & Tolstoy

Hello, I'm back...again! All I can say is: life gets busy. It's been a busy time with work and dance but today I'm taking the day to relax.
The leaves on the trees have all changed and are on their way to the ground below. I'm warming up with a hot mug of milk and chai on my new wing-back chair with Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. A perfect afternoon...

The Street Art of Vitry-sur-Seine


Well hello fabulous people! It's been quite some time since I've posted anything, but I'm back again, re-inspired and excited! This summer I took my vacation in Asia (more to follow on that) but I found I missed my trip to Europe. Now I have a specific destination in mind for my next trip: Vitry-sure-Seine.

Vitry-sur-Seine is a suburb outside of Paris known for its amazing street art! Just take a look at these pictures (taken by Sara Tucker) and learn more at CN Traveller.
 Pretty fabulous, no?! Au revoir!
