I laughed, I cried, I was inspired. I can honestly say that a movie hasn’t moved me in a long time like The Intouchables did. When I wasn’t smiling, I was laughing. Really hard. What I love about this movie is that it gives you a glimpse into two very different lives. However, despite the differences two seemingly opposite people may have, there may still be similarities if you look close enough, whether it is through senses of humors, outlooks on life, or the way relationships are valued. The movie is based on the true story of Abdel Sellou and Philippe Pozzo di Borgo.

To be honest, I have never tried a macaron. My friends love them and I constantly hear about how great these delicate desserts are, but I just haven’t given them a chance. Since macarons come in all kinds of fun flavors and appear fairly reasonable to make at home, I am officially adding them to my “To-Make” List. While this list is already quite extensive, I’m not one to say ‘no’ to a dessert. Allow yourself to be whisked away to Paris while enjoying these sugary treats and watching La Vie En Rose, a movie about the life of Édith Piaf, starring Marion Cotillard. Bon appétit!

It’s common to see pictures of kitchens from around the United States, but what do kitchens look like in other countries? I’ve always been curious what kitchens look like in homes around the globe, so when I found theKitchn, I was thrilled to find pictures of just that – kitchens from a different part of the world: France. It is interesting because while a kitchen may just look like any other kitchen, if you look closely, you’ll notice subtle differences that make each one unique. What do you like best about these French kitchens?

Something’s Gotta Give is a movie about an older man (Jack Nicholson) who usually dates younger women falling in love with a woman (Diane Keaton) closer to his age. I especially enjoy this movie for the scenes of the beach house, which is clean, airy, and majestic. It is Hollywood interior design at its finest. Near the end of the movie, the characters dine in a restaurant in Paris, France. This restaurant is Le Grand Colbert located at 2, Rue Vivienne. The menu includes a range of delicious sea food, a selection of meat, cheese, and a variety of mouth-watering desserts. Le Grand Colbert has a nice warm glow, a golden interior, and will make you feel like you are in a scene straight out of this Hollywood hit.
