So it was no surprise that even my husband remembers having one when he was little. The duo from Bayonne had been frustrated with not finding the mobile of their dreams and so decided to create their own. Taking inspiration from the s, abstract art and Scandinavian design, the mobiles are handmade in small batches in France.
Available online at www. Ask any French person you know and chances are, he or she had worn clothing from Petit Bateau as a child. For a brand that has been around for years, they definitely know what they are doing when it comes to affordable and quality cotton wear. Available at Petit Bateau Singapore stores or online at www. Beyond the big players in the sneaker world, there is one French brand that is quietly revolutionising the business, proving that it is possible to stay relevant in fashion and remain ethical at the same time.
The brand is focused on fair trade and sustainable practices at every stage down the supply chain, choosing instead not to accumulate inventory or spend on advertising. Can we say twinning and winning? Lead image sourced via Pinterest.

Well, first of all, this blog is not about teaching French, never was, never will. Also, if you read closely, I think I do give some context. If you use it without already being fluent, you will misuse it. I need to stick to English. Socially acceptable, i.
I thought you were alluding to the alliteration or something. The word is only acceptable with very close friends and family. La la! They do not sound the same in any regard. Sounds familiar.follow link

I remember being on the street in Paris one day years ago when a police van with sirens blaring passed by with a swat team hanging on to the sides. Languages evolve, very often by adopting words or expressions from other languages. And, yes, often mangling said expressions in the process. Check the Oxford Dictionary. Both express a different meaning than they do in English. For those of us who are a bit more tolerant the phenomena is interesting, amusing, and even endearing. What is pathetic is when people mis use a foreign expression as an attempt to sound more foreign, more cool, more special or something along these lines.

Your written English is not perfect but nobody is being sarky about that. And as far as my written English is concerned, anyone whose second language is as good as mine is welcome to criticize it as much as they want. I mean it.
Just so you know. I get in trouble all the time with sweet, ironic statements. People tend to take them at face value. By the way, I am quite impressed with your English. And yes, while most Americans suck at irony, the Brits are world champions, beating the French by far.
Remember, the only common trait of Anglophones is that they speak English and very often not even the same English , but your cultures and outlooks on things are extremely different from country to country. Oh, really? Anglophones are not a monolithic entity? Thanks for enlightening me! I love English humor. There are differences to be sure, but there are plenty of similiarities. I know what I wanted to say and I said it. The world according to David…very interesting. I understood what you meant about what was pathetic, and I hear you completely.
I come from the latter. Check out the Oxford dictionary. I never use those terms in English, as they sound dumb to me, but they are occasionally used. I can never bring myself to pronounce it the English way. It sounds awful!
Thanks for this thread. I have no issue with croissant. Yes, I understand your point.
