Blog makeover.

Welcome to Shades of Vanille! It is exactly what it used to be, only with a little twist to it. I have been having technical issues with eblogger, maybe it’s just my incompetence with it (very likely!) but have had several thumbs up for switching to this platform. Apparently, it’s easier but hey, we’ll see! Anyways, you might have noticed that the title of my blog is also different but I assure you, there is not a difference.

Vanille is as vanilla can be! I’ve also had people ask me why vanilla? Well, all I can tell you is that I’ve always had a thing for basic, simple things. I find the flavour of simplicity to really describe me best. It’s a la mode in my life choices. Or, so I’ve learnt.

Also, as you can notice the spelling is different. It’s just a little more…french? OK, if you want to know the real reason for the change in blog title, click here. Otherwise, let us all think that it is because my other half, the Monsieur, is indeed French (why else would I address him as such!) and a big part of my life and experiences are usually skewered towards the “La Vie en Rose” mode which, for me, is predominantly finding beauty in simple everyday things and enjoying them. I dare say It is a luxury we all can afford !

So with this rose-tinted-glasses template, I present to you also a series, a spin-off to topics from the main categories. As it turned out, I am so obsessed with some objects that I can’t even begin to explain. I figured that documenting it will be easier for me to deal with them. Haha! I am still working on the series and will share them in due time. Keep a lookout!

p.s: i’d love to hear what you think of this new blog template

Hello and welcome to my blog! I was a teacher who was rather set in her ways. In 2009, I met and married a French man who has since made my world spin in another direction. Now, I am still a teacher who is learning every single day, wife to a funny man, mother to a sweet little boy and apparently a writer too! I have always wanted to write so I guess this blog is my big chance. I hope you enjoy my posts :)
