Guess Who Is Having A Photoshoot For A National Newspaper?

Never say never. I should have known better. Why do I keep doing the same mistakes again? Do I ever learn? I don’t know. 
Ok. Here it is. I didn’t want to participate in any more blog competitions to focus on my writing and on my blog, but I have just submitted an entry here. It is about the main differences, from my perspective, between British & French men. I thought that it would be a funny thing to do. Please read, comment, and share. I hope that you will like it.


On a different note, today, a whole team went to my house for a photo shoot: make-up artist, fashion assistant, fashion director, illustrations editor, photographer and his assistant. It was quite an experience. Where to start? First of all, I am not skinny. I am in my forties now. I studied science and never worried too much about my appearance. And to top it all up, I had a huge pimple on my chin. Simply massive. The make-up artist managed to hide it really well. Oh, and you should have seen the clothes! They were just gorgeous. I would never have dared to buy such colours and labels. Never. But they were right. I can’t say more…You will have to wait until start of January (probably the 4th) for the whole story!

NB: and I might be French, but the fashion team thought that my high heels were not, well, high enough. Damn it.

  • Gorgeous photo! Can’t wait for the story!

    • Thank you Marie! I can’t wait to see the article too!

  • Did you get to keep the clothes? I can’t wait to see it when it comes out!

    • Unfortunately, I didn’t keep the clothes. I would have loved too. That said, it have ideas for my future shopping sprees…

  • OK. I will have to keep on my hands for two weeks? I’m looking forward to the rest of the story.

    • Well, Roy, I know a little bit more than you, but I have yet to see the article and to get the exact date of publication…I will believe it when I see it!

  • Done and dusted – I found your blog via your contest entry. Your vision of Englishmen had me laughing out loud, and your comparison is spot on (I’m English and I live in France with my French husband -as you said, we are mirror-image mums on each side of the Channel).
    I bet the interview situation must have been fun – I look forward to discovering the “why when and how” explaining their visit 🙂

    • Hi there! It isn’t an interview, it is an article I wrote for The Times…can’t say more! I have just spent a couple of days in Paris and everybody was complaining…how do you manage?

  • Your entry was very entertaining, Muriel. Those competitions are interesting because you can find out, with little effort, some potential new blogs of interest.

    I’m very interested in hearing about your photoshoot. I wish they’d come and do me too. I’m hopeless really at all that fashion malarkey. How exciting! 🙂

    • I am the same. I wouldn’t have tried any of the clothes they have brought…maybe we need to hire a fashion assistant…it would make things easier…

  • This sounds awesome! Well done!

    • Thank you! Nb: I am quite surprised (in a good way) myself!

  • Very exciting!!!!! eeek 😉
