La vie en rose

I decided to write a post about pink products I personally like.   Last week I published a post about pink products that are being sold to help find a cure for breast cancer .  You can find it here!  Today is TGIF! I feel like taking it easy and creating a post just for the fun of it.   The following products are just some of my favorites at the moment and they just happen to be pink.

First, nail polish:
I`ve always loved pink nail polish. Once in a while I wear red but 95% of the time I just love to wear pink polish (the bonus is that mistakes dont show as much).  . There is a new trend called French Inverse nails.  I quite like it!

Then there is the traditional look, always a classic:

The bottle seems a bit mauvy but your nails will look a fresh pink.

The next product is quite smart. Its made by Shuella. They are shoe covers. Lets say you are stepping out wearing your best shoes (made from fine leather, satin or suede) and then it starts to pour. No need to worry, you just flick out your pink shoe covers from your purse and voilà! In case you are interested you can have a closer look at their website (the covers exist in other colors): http://www.shuella.com/
 Lastly,  I present to you my favorite spread.  Its delicious on ice cream, croissant or French bread: its rose petal jelly!  This one is made locally!

 You have to try it. I dont like sweet jams but this jelly is perfumed with a hint of rose and tastes great.  You can find this product everywhere these days.  I usually find mine in gourmet shops.  Hope you enjoyed my short list of pink products.  Have a Happy Pink weekend!

  16. I really loved your pink shoecovers. Up here in Norway where I live, there is A LOT of rain and those would be very sutable.

    Thank you very much for joining my blog. I now have a translationservise installed. It is only scandinavian people who understand my language.

    Have a nice week-end.

  17. Following you back! Thanks for taking the time to stop by! Love that you are a French teacher. I took four years of French in high school but sadly am not that good anymore. Seriously in need of a refresher class or two! That nail polish is the best, love love love the color! Do you suppose they sell that here in the states? Oh and your falling leaves are too cool! Saw those shoe covers on another blog just today...they called them shoe umbrellas...too funny!

  18. Very cool inverted nails. Also? I used to have that kind of boots when I was little and I LOVED them! Nice to know they still exist! :)

    i'm a new follower from the social parade on friday!!
    can't wait to read more

  21. I'm a new follower! Love your blog! When I was a little girl (long ago) we called those little plastic shoe covers "galoshes" but they were made out of rubber!

  22. Wow!!! What a darling blog. I too will be following you. Thanks for stopping by My Cozy Corner. And, I love tea and cupcakes.

  23. That French Inverse nail look takes me back to when I was 12 years old. I was blessed with naturally long nails and back then I had this collection of wild colors of nail polish. When I was bored....and let's face it a 12 year old gets bored often....I'd entertain myself by painting all these bright colored strips on my nails.

    I think I was about 20 years ahead of my time (Yes this was the wacky 80s). Seems more people do these things now.

    Thanks for the memory!

  24. How fun! Thank you for following me! I am following back and cannot wait to go back through and read some of your posts!!
