Life with Mila | The S.E.X.

I haven’t done a post on Life with Mila since this one when we went to France to say goodbye to my grandmother. It was a sad time but reading Mila’s words made me burst out laughing again. Here is another one that will make me laugh for a long time…Mila: “…my friend Magdalena is crazy. Lily said that no-one could be as crazy as she is”Me: “why is she crazy?”Mila: “She says she knows about S.E.X.”Me: “About what?” (the look on Mila’s face just spelling it out was priceless)Mila: “S.E.X.!”Me: “What is this? Tell me…”Mila:“Well you should know, you are a grown-up….”Me: “Umm…yeah maybe but I’m not sure, tell me what Magdalena told you”Mila: “No I can’t and anyway you know, you had me, so you should know…You know it’s when a boy and a girl do ummmm” (pressing her two hands like two people kissing like crazy).Me: “Well..I had you 8 years ago so it’s a long time, I forgot about it :-)”Steve: “Come on, tell us…”Mila: “OK, give me £10 and I tell …

Say hello to Polly…

As some of you know, BODIE and FOU is an independent concept store which I launched with my beautiful sister Elodie eight years ago (just before Mila was born). It has been and still is a work of love, passion and drive and I can’t believe how many people we are now reaching through the world with our BODIE and FOU parcels. It feels amazing!As Confucius said: “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”.The other day, I introduced you to Doryan so today, I would like to introduce you to Polly who recently joined our A-team. Polly is very talented girl. Her blog has already been voted one the best interior blogs by The Telegraph and she has already done an amazing job on our new Christmas catalogue. If you need any high-res images for press or blogging, feel free to contact her, she is very helpful and if you haven’t met her yet, by all means come and say hello here on the blog.LEAVE A COMMENT THANKS! http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

Copycats, Copyright Infringement and Social Media Etiquette Part 2

I was planning a nice post on fashion but once again I had to deal with copyright infringement.
