Some girls dream of wardrobes bursting with pairs of perfect Manolos or Jimmy Choos. They salivate over the latest Louis Vuitton and faint when Hermes calls to say they’ve reached the top of the Birkin waiting list. Some girls even go to the emergency room with a single broken fingernail and get religious over the latest carb-free diet. I’m not one of those girls.
As you’ll see from the blog, the Epicurienne way is to buy knickers at Primark and save that spare cash for a ticket to somewhere on the Yet To Visit list. Next to travel I love food, a lot, and frequently embarrass my husband, Monsieur, by taking notes from menus when we eat out. Meanwhile, my idea of a fashion statement is the beautiful Syrian scarf that my brother gave me that almost made me cry when it ran in the wash. A broken fingernail will not break my day and I don’t do fads. Fact.
My day job is in no way related to what I spent years of my life studying for, so Avenue Q’s song “What do you do with a BA in English?” cracks me up every time I hear it. To exercise the grey matter I really enjoy blogging, which has kept me sane in recent times by letting me spout about the things that excite me most: travel, food, culture and philosophy. I love the two-way interest that blogging encourages, get a big buzz out of working out how to use a new tech features, and have made some great friends around the globe through my blog. So, for the Epicurious, that’s a bit more about Moi. If we haven’t ‘met’ over the ether yet, why not drop me a line or a comment and tell me all about VOUS?
