Some girls dream of wardrobes bursting with pairs of perfect Manolos or Jimmy Choos. They salivate over the latest Louis Vuitton and faint when Hermès 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 travel bucket list. Next to wandering the world 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 ruin my day and I don’t do fads. Fact.
I started blogging to record some wonderful experiences I was having with food and travel and share them with like-minded people. The new people I’ve met through Epicurienne have been the unexpected bonus of writing online. Not only do I enjoy the two-way interest that blogging generates, I get a big buzz out of working out how to use a new tech feature and have met some fascinating people around the globe. Epicurienne has also led to my job as a freelance writer – which I LOVE.
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?
