Started this weekend off the best way: lunch with a friend! I met Jenny at 5 Lorette in the 9th and we both had their big detox salad (surprise, surprise) with kale, cucumber, avocado, pink hummus and some other goodies. Then we went for a stroll in the sun before I had to go to a job interview. Stay tuned about that.
After the interview I met Emma and we went for quite a walk, to Cimitière de Montmartre which was actually very beautiful before we ended up...
... overlooking Paris from the beautiful Montmartre neighborhood.
We caught the perfect sunset for photos.
I mean, how can you not love this place? Sacre Coeur in all its beauty. This was the first monument I visited the first time I came to Paris as a 15-year old dreamer and it still holds a special place in my heart.
Since I spent Friday night at home watching New Girl, I woke up quite early on Saturday feeling fresh and on fire. Ended up running 5,5 kilometers which is good for me and then studied almost all day. Way to go Tara! Can't remember the last time I studied on a Saturday. Had this delicious salad as an early dinner, consisting of sweet potato, salad, cucumber, corn, green beans and roasted chick peas. Yummmm. Saturday night was spent in Emma's cozy apartment doing what we do best: drinking red wine and eating guacamole and nachos while philosophing.
Hello Sunday! Also today I woke up feeling well rested. Went for a 4,3 kilometer run and did groceries with Jeremy before this amazing brunch was served by me. Banana pancakes, croissants, pains au chocolate, baguette, coffee and juice, what more could you ask for?
After brunch I headed to meet up with these two lovely ladies for the #MeToo deminstration at Republique. Grey skies and freeeeezing cold but surprisingly many people came out and I don't know how many interviews and photos we were in.
Some women chose to put their personal story on their signs like "My cousin when I was 15". Even if you know sexual assault is everywhere it all becomes so real when you see it like this. Definitely a topic that concerns everyone. Not only me, not only you but girls, boys, women, men, our families and our friends. All humans.
I chose to write "Not yours" on my sign with the hashtags in the languages I speak. For me, "Not yours" stands for that I am my own person and that I'm "Not yours" to stare at, touch, harass, assault or scream words after in the street. This happens on a daily basis and I'm tired of it. I hope the #MeToo campaign will raise people's awareness about sexual assault and that our children won't have this problem in the future.
