On my way to 2015...


*THE*JOLLY*GIRL* talks most of the time about fashion and lifestyle, subjects that can sometimes seem a little light and frivolous to some of you out there, but today I wanted to share with you a different kinda post with a few memories of my life in 2014.

Chillin' with weather issues


After March and its sudden showers, well known around here, we managed to get past awful May, and its famous ‘Saints of Ice’ (Sainte Glace ou Saints des Glaces) also part of French climate at that time of the year, having to deal with rain, awful wind and even hail, during 10 days. Never know how to dress or if it’s gonna be good enough to go through the whole day !
Hopefully and thankfully, that term of the year is behind us now. Let’s say hello to beautiful sunshine and mild weather ! Much more appreciated thank you !

What's new ?!


Okey this is where I'm gonna announce the sad news since I can't even drop it anywhere else - media like ! You might have noticed (or not ??!) that my Insta account hasn't been updated since a real long time (1 month I think !!) and here is the explanation : my phone litterally passed away/crashed last month, leaving me with an old Samsung Galaxy Spica, with no options at all :'( And as all of you know by now, I'm a total phone addict/geek, with an Instagram obsession... So yes, life's quite a bitch these days... That said, let's talk about more fashionable things. I wanted to show you this outfit, which is rather casual, as it was worn on a sunday to chill out, but it features a recent bought : new coral sneaks from VET AFFAIR ! Waiting for my next pair of VANS to come home (haven't chosed which one yet !), I thought it was the perfect mix between lowcost and trendy, for this type of skater sneaks :) (they only cost 10.00EUR !!) What do you think ?!


Lost


Everything is in the title today ! :) To make it short, this outfit was shooted during what should have seemed  to be a peaceful sunday afternoon out walking Gus in the woods near Essert. But it was without counting on the fact that we actually managed to get lost looking out for the car as we wanted to back up towards home ! I'll admit I wasn't that much at ease even if I trust my boyfriend on his sense of orientation, I started doubting at a moment :/ Outfit wasn't planned at all for the occasion... But still was confortable enough and thank God I had jeans and flat shoes on !

Off Duty


Good morning loves ! How was your day off last Thursday (well only concerning french followers :P) ? I was lucky enough to also get my Friday off, so I was able to enjoy a double weekend :) I'm back today with an old look from end of March just before my April vacation. A look between the cold winter still out our door at that time and warmth of Spring arriving.

Urban vibe


Back to work after more than a week holiday begining of April, described like pure chilling at home, spending time walking my dog, enjoying good weather and catching up on sleep :) This outfit was specifically shooted to show you my latest new pair of jeans from MISS SIXTY, brand I had forgotten about since my teenage years, but this pair stole my heart again.

Love weekend in Verdun


And another small recap of my love trip in Verdun and Metz back in September last year. / Et un autre petit résumé de mon voyage en amoureux à Verdun et Metz en Septembre l'année dernière.


14.01.14



Hello guys ! How you've been since all this time... !? How is your weekend going so far... ?! I'm happy sun is back :) Instead of showing you what happened on St Valentin's Day last month (Guillaume was working, he came back home the next day for my birthday :D ) here's what happened in January at the same date. A very special one for my love : his birthday, his 30's !!! Can't believe we arrived here already. Seems like yesterday, when we met for the first time and honestly guys, time flies ! So here's what we've been up to that night... We first went to the restaurant, just the two of us... I wanted to discover and introduce a new restaurant to Guillaume. Checked ! We went to 'Restaurant du Palais' in the center of town, which just suited us perfectly for the evening. Awesome dishes, a beautiful showcase and a cosy place with a nice and warm atmospher (hope you can feel the vibe through the pictures). On friday of the same week, we then went at the 'Coco club' with a few of our friends, to party all night long. Outfits were all about glam, chic and warm to face the cold and here we go !

Summer weekend in London with daddy

Christopher's graduation day - 26.07.2013
Yes, you've been aware about this since last summer (first pics uploaded via INSTA - @thejollygirl). I couldn't wait. I was so excited, proud and impatient to share with you the professionnal pics of the event. Two days spent running around London with my Dad to celebrate my little brother's graduation on a very sunny day. What an adventure !

Someone special at home


My parents have been separated since more than ten years now. My mum then moved back to London at that time to also go back to basics since she grew up there and left a few of a family over. Dad stayed in France. At that time, things were really awful, and I don't want to be the one giving my point of view about that subject, it's just to explain the situation for you to catch the right feeling. I have since then been separated from my brother (him living in England and me in France) with glimpse of reunion every once in a while during holiday breaks, when younger, I was sometimes able to go visit them in London. Growing apart from each other, made us realise (or at least me) that my brother is simply THE most important person in the world for me. I will always rely on his opinion and what he tells me will always have an impact and make me think. Not to mention Guillaume in this case, but blood ties remains blood ties. He's my other half literally. Anywhere in the world, the only person who will always know, without words, if I'm safe or not is my bro. We can't explain it but it's just always been this way. No matter what happens we will forever connect anywhere. 
So basically, those holidays back in July were all about : no makeup days, going back to basics, on our childhood footsteps and memories (you can feel that melancholic vibe in the pictures of our old house and district), runnning back to our old primary school and kindergarden. Also tasting/eating/enjoying so much different receipes and west indies-english-indian food. So fortunate to have my personal chief at home cooking homemade food much better than any restaurant out there. Soaking in the sun, having fun meeting with friends, trying to stop time at night to savor every little minute together.

Oldies - Last look


And here is the final outfit chosed for a sunny day back in June last year. Of course, shorts were included and I was very happy to have my light MEXX cardigan with me, since those pictures were actually shooted at the end of the day, during the sunset when temperature was going done too.

Oldies - 2nd look


Here is the second look of the serie. Used for the 'FIMU' last year, I chosed a total black look with a touch of colour on the mini satchel bag, the earrings and my vintage flower printed scarf. I personally love this outfit, for black first because anyone who knows me a little knows I love black total looks and black color in general, but also for the maxi skirt easy to match either in a chic outfit or a more casual one.
What's your thoughts ?

Oldies



Hi there how you are all doing ?! Hope you had a great weekend... Here I am back with a correct report of the 2013 diary in the right order and outline with old pictures left aside since June. These looks were shot before having my brother over at home for summer holidays and joining him to London for his graduation ceremony back in July (a few pics and infos were already posted via Insta) but you'll see all that in upcoming posts. The outfit we are talking about today is more like a spring kinda outfit with a loose shirt and simple jeans, one of my favourites, actually. Add to that my beloved camel cardigan, KOOKAI flats, PAQUETAGE bag, a silk scarf matching the shirt's color and hop! we go for a little walk in town ;) Enough explaining, here it is ! Smouack x


Coucou à tous, comment allez-vous ?! J'espère que vous avez passé un excellent week-end ... Je suis de retour avec un récapitulatif de l'année 2013 dans le bon ordre et les grandes lignes avec d'anciennes photos laissées de côté depuis Juin. Ces looks ont été shootés avant de recevoir mon frère à la maison pour les vacances d'été et de le rejoindre ensuite à Londres pour la cérémonie de remise de son diplôme en Juillet (quelques photos et infos ont déjà été publiés sur Insta) mais vous verrez tout cela dans de prochains articles. La tenue d'aujourd'hui est plutôt printanière avec une blouse ample et un jean simple, un de mes favoris, en fait. Ajoutez à cela mon gilet camel bien-aimé, des ballerines KOOKAI, mon sac PAQUETAGE, un foulard en soie de la même couleur que la blouse et hop! allons faire un petit tour en ville ;) Assez d'explications, la voilà ! Smouack x












D-STIAG JEANS
KOOKAI FLATS
MCK WATCH
RANDOM LOOSE SHIRT
VINTAGE SILK SCARF
RANDOM LACE TOP
CAMAIEU CARDIGAN
RANDOM EARRINGS
PAQUETAGE PACO BAG

CELEBRATE !


For starters, I wish to each and everyone of you a very Happy New year ! Hope you simply had a wondeful time with family and beloved ones... We totally expected something different this year for New Year's Eve... And we were served ! We were suppose to travel a little in the first place, exporting ourselves up in Berlin or Geneva to party. Facing health problems on the end of this past 2013 year now, impossible to reach  Berlin or even Genève unfortunately. We ended up spending a wonderful, peaceful time at home, Guillaume and I, together, cuddling and still having a lot of fun between seafood and good music. What I wanted to share with you guys today, is a video I've been preparing for months now about the 2013 special New Year's Eve we spent last year in Genève ! I didn't want to publish it before without it being compelete, and ended up thinking it was a good idea for this start ofe the year to offer you this surprise :)
Enjoy and leave me your thoughts ;)
See ya hon's X
