Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

May 14, 2017

Today, we are celebrating Mother’s Day in my beautiful country, Ecuador, as well as in many other countries around the world.  Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and all the wonderful moms out there!

Here in France it is different since we celebrate it the last Sunday of May. Therefore, I picked some nice ideas that you can find in France if you are still looking for a nice gift for such a special woman! Don’t forget to take the time to enjoy this day as a family and to make her feel every bit as special as she deserves!


Hoy se celebra el Día de la Madre en mi país, Ecuador, al igual que en otros países alrededor del mundo. ¡Feliz Día a mi madre hermosa y a todas esas madres bellas!

Aquí en Francia es diferente ya que el Día de la Madre se celebra el último domingo de mayo. Si viven aquí y todavía no han encontrado un regalito para sus mamis les dejo algunas ideas para que se inspiren.

¡No olviden que lo más importante es disfrutar de este día en familia y homenajear a esa mujer tan especial como se lo merece!

Con amor,

fete mere

Moms On Heels

May 9, 2017


Hello chic@s,

It’s been a while since my last outfit blog post. Now that my little Raphaël is getting bigger, we go out more often for walks in the city. He loves spending time with his mom and dad, especially when it gets sunny outside 🙂

Here is what I wore on our last day out. I really enjoyed wearing sandals for the first time in season! Even though they have a high heels, they are very comfortable and I wanted to give my outfit a bit more of an edge. Since becoming a mother, I normally wear mostly flat shoes, but I am now trying to mix things up and wear more heels… because I miss the way I feel in them!

Varios meses han pasado desde la última vez que les compartí un look en el blog. Ahora que mi príncipe Raphaël ya está más grande, se nos hace más fácil salir a caminar por la ciudad. A mi bebé le encanta compartir lindos momentos con papi y mami especialmente cuando hace sol 🙂

Éste fue mi look del día. ¡Pude sacar mis sandalias del closet para ponérmelas por primera vez este año! A pesar de que tienen tacón alto, son muy cómodas y le dan un toque muy femenino a mi look. Desde que me convertí en madre he dejado de usar mucho mis tacones por comodidad y practicidad. Sin embargo, debo confesar que extraño usarlos y de ahora en adelante trataré de alternar zapatos con tacón bajo y alto… porque para que les miento, extraño lucir esbelta !

Con amor,
