You know, when the street where you live has a Laduree boutique at one end you must accept it. And be at peace with it. You must accept that you`ll never win. No matter how hard you`ll try, you will never come out a winner. The Laduree sweets will forever remain an addiction.
And it`s not even just about the sweets but about the feminine and delicate lifestyle promise which this world wide adulated sweet shop trend settet. Inspired by Laduree I`ve put together a little list.
How to be a Bon Vivant in the 21st Century
- Develop a careless attitude towards anyone who doesn`t understand you lifestyle, professional life or personal life
- If somehow the careless attitude goes off from time to time, don`t pout, don`t cry and don`t get sad/depressed. Treat your weak day with a glass of champagne/gin tonic/prosecco and some decadent foods like refined gourmet, finesse sweets and even junk food. Yes, one or two days from time to time, we are allowed. We`re hedonists for Christ`s sake.
- Cancel an activity – yep, when it`s just too much on you plate, it`s just too much. Also, maybe take a power nap. Does wonders for the skin. I wouldn`t know, I`m sleeping 4 hours per night lately.
- Stop, smell the flowers, look at the sky, eat a cookie – yep, hedonists are in love with life (naaaa, you thought they are in love with expensive clothes didn`t you?). So enjoy this life. It`s the only one you`ve got right now. You might turn into a cockroach in the next.
