I recently helped put together the third article in a series of six called "The Charming Gentlemen" on Eric Horwitz's LA Dating blog. This chapter covers Men's Fashion and is geared towards all those men in Los Angeles who don't know what to do with themselves when it's time to go shopping. My two main goals when talking with Eric were (1) to make sure I gave relevant information to a man on a budget and (2) to show men how to express their personalities through fashion. I gave Eric a ton of information which he had to compress but I will share some of my insights with you all soon!

I am on a mission to re-learn French! I used to speak when I went to a French Elementary school and completely lost it through the years. Well, I am now determined to learn it again so when I go to back to France I can tell off that cab driver who took me around the same block twice just so that I'd have to pay him more! I'm no idiot, mister!
So, I am going to post a phrase or quote a day so that anyone who wants to, can learn a little bit along with me :)
Let's start with something easy to begin with:
"Je voudrais une fraise, s'il vous plait." -- "I would like a strawberry, please"
(Zhuh voodreh oo(n) frez, seel voo pleh)
Hehe I wanted to pick something that had the word "fraise" (strawberry) in it!
