I do not know about you, but I do love buying underwear when it is dull and grey outside.

What is a girl to do when an email arrives in her box with lots of pretty things but to take a peak.

Trouble is, it did not stop there and before I knew it I had hit the "Order" button!
Think that I may be in trouble as I faithfully promised Mr FF that I would stop shopping until we had finished renovating!

I hope he will not be mad at me, perhaps when he sees how "joli" my new purchases are, he will not be so mad :-)

A demain mes blogging amis,

ps I managed to persuade Mr FF to hang my new mirror last night but when I went to take a photo this afternoon, I realised that the battery on the camera was flat as a pancake (what sort of expression is this?) so will show you tomorrow.


  1. Men love exciting underwear. It's a universal truth.

  2. I second Kelly's thoughts above! gorgeous is this blog! c'est magnifique!

  3. I love buying underwear, too! Even when the sun is shining :) I am sure mr FF will be very pleased!

  4. Buying lingerie is the best way to soothe the shopping bug when you've promised your man not to shop...they may start out annoyed, but then you just "show" them your new pretties and the objections just sort of... go away! Bwah ha ha ha (evil laugh)...everyone wins!

    Great picture, by the way!

  5. Fabulous! Bellissimo! I love the photo and buying the pretty lingerie is just the cherry on top!

  6. I so know what you're talking about! Love to buy pretty underwear online! It's a bad habit at times. LOL!! I'm sure he will forget anything he said after he sees your great buys. ;)

  7. I am sure all will be forgiven by your Mr. FF, Leeann:) Can't wait to see a pic of your mirror hanging in its new home:) Happy day to you ~ Tina x

  8. Ooooh la la! Underwear, its such a lovely little secret to enjoy.

  9. Oh I think Mr. FF will definitely have no problem with your on line shopping spree! ~Lili

  10. Mr FF will be delighted I am certain... I know Mr SE would be if I did the same! X

  11. Any day and every day is good day to go lingerie shopping :) And I love Agent Provocateur! I'm sure all will quickly be forgiven ;)

    Love your site btw ... even though I think this is the first time I've actually posted anything.

  12. Buying gorgeous underwear doesn't count as 'shopping', it's like groceries...Have a great weekend..Rx

  13. Agent Provocateur! Missing them so much. The Covent Garden store was one of my Meccas when I lived in London. Divine creations - tres jolie indeed.

    I am sure Mr FF won't be too upset.. My huz never is when I splash out on goodies like these. :)

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.

By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.

Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream


1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

3.In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, then gradually add som…

a good idea..

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...
Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....

About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
