”It was 300 years ago. Sailors stuck at sea would get desperate for female companionship. It got so bad that, eventually, the manatees out in the water started to look like… beautiful women. Mermaids.”
How I Met Your Mother, Season 6 Episode 11.
Just so you know, it’s probably one of my favorite episodes. If you’re in a bad mood, sad, tired or whatever, you should definitely watch it because it is hilarious! ‘The theory states that no matter how much a man is repelled by a “manatee”, as soon as they meet a clock starts ticking until the time when he will eventually find her a lovely “mermaid“‘ (How I Met Your Mother Wiki). If you wanna know how a woman, once mermaid-ified, can go back to being unattractive again… Well… watch the episode!! No spoilers on dontchawannadream. Ahahah I’m still laughing, just thinking about it. Can’t believe the show’s ending soon but… at the same time it’s been 9 years… so it’s probably time to stop. By the way, I told you… 2014 is the year of GLITTER! Ahah I’m having so much fun making these memes/cards.
So do you believe in the Mermaid Theory? I do!

I love how people can easily become crazy when they talk to their pets. I don’t have any but I’m pretty sure I’d do the same or even ‘worse’! Sooo not making fun of anyone here. This scene from New Girl (season 3) is really cute and funny. You can’t not love Winston!!

Big achievement today. This is my first ‘real’ self-portrait!
For those who know me in real life, don’t be shocked! I did an ombre hair color in early February so my hair’s not as dark as it was before. Hence the ‘flames’ in the background! This theme reminded me of one song, ‘Spark’ (talked about it in March 2012). It still hasn’t been released officially… Seriously, Michelle, your fans can’t wait anymore!!! She’s working on a new album thank God but this song’s still one of my favorite songs EVER. ‘Every single fire started with a spark’…
Bye February 2014 and thank you Kings of Leon for the new video. Makes February even better!!! #musicjunkie

I painted this double portrait for an exhibition organized by IAE Business School’s students. It will take place next week in Nice and its theme is “l’art du leadership”.
Two weeks ago I watched the French movie Yves Saint Laurent (directed by Jalil Lespert and starring Pierre Niney and Guillaume Gallienne). The actors’ performance is beyond amazing. Go see it when it’s out in your country, seriously!!
I couldn’t paint someone else, it had to be Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé. I wish I had more time to write this post but you get it, this painting means a lot to me because 1) it’s for my first exhibition EVER, 2) these men are BRILLIANT, 3) it was a huge challenge : I really had to think to make this composition. It’s not just a “portrait”. It has a meaning.
Anywayyy I’m sooo excited!
For more information, check out the exhibition’s Facebook page and don’t forget to like it!!!! It’s really important to all these students who have been working really hard! Thanks. xx

Because sometimes I just feel like Jess from New Girl.
Jess to Julia: ”I brake for birds, I rock a lot of polka dots, I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours [...] and I find it fundamentally strange that you’re not a dessert person. That’s just weird and it freaks me out. And I’m sorry I don’t talk like Murphy Brown and I hate your pantsuit. I wish it had ribbons on it or something to make it just slightly cuter.”
I just found my new year’s resolution for 2014: adding glitter on more paintings. ‘Cause you know… glitter! Ahah I just love it.
I used water-soluble wax pastels, a little bit of white gouache, glitter glue (!!!) and Photoshop for the quote (I wrote it with my tablet).
Just published my 3rd video on Facebook —-> https://www.facebook.com/dontchawannadream
It’s called “Les Rêves de Cha” (rêves = dreams). I want to thank my wonderful friend Cat Forsley for creating such an amazing piece of music for me and spending time to make this video. I’m SO lucky!!!
