Happy Bastille Day! Today's blog in celebration of the French national holiday will have a touch of Paris to it . But first, let's set the mood.....
|We have raspberry macarons and music too!|
And of course we must have dancing ......
And libations are being poured....
Now that mood is set ...let the eye candy begin!
This past year I discovered a shop I consider the bees knees. Each and everything in it makes my heart beat faster and I swoon at every turn. The shop Boulevard de Amelie, is tucked away on one of the side drives of the shopping center here in Roseville CA., known as The Fountains, and it is filled to the brim with treasures. There is everything from clothing to accessories, with a healthy dose of gifts and decor. Everything in this delightful shop has a touch of French/Parisian charm, a good dash of glam and glitz and a sprinkling of romance. When you walk in, you are greeted by the owner Wendy Christensen with a warm welcome and a smile.
Last night was a "Girlfriend's Night Out" . I arranged with Wendy to come in and take photos so that you might get a peek and enjoy right along with me. So without further adieu, let us begin the visual tour.

|Girly opulence awaits .....|
|I love this jewelry stand so much you will see it in a couple photos! I have an idea pinned to my Truly Inspires page on Pinterest for those hankies!|

|One day perhaps I shall own the skirted jewelry mannequin...as well as the Glamor Girl sign.|
|Even your nose can be pampered with a stylish tissue.|
|Here is my table, as I am the Queen of my own life !|

...as did Michelle of Helen and Wilma and I, she helps with promotions of Boulevard de Amelie, and I found out reads my blog and tweets! Next time I shall have to get a photo of the lovely owner Windy when she has a bit more time.
If you ever find yourself in Roseville , do yourself a favor and pop over to The Fountains, spend the day, have some lunch, some rose gelato and make a point to stop in to Boulevard de Amelie, and if you can not make it, they now have a budding website and a facebook page as well! And do not forget to click on Lone Buffalo Vineyards link...blog will follow about them when we visit....OH and check out the link for Michelle as well!
Till next time .....Je vous dis adieu ( I bid you farewell)
