Long time no see! First of all, if you are a longtime follower of mine, thank you! Thank you for sticking up with me through all my online adventures from Mademoiselle futile (my beauty blog founded in 2010 that has been hacked and taken down) to its reborn From Paris with Love by Niloufar and my Instagram!
“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.”
One thing is sure, I haven’t been consistent with my online presence this last decade. First of all, I have my main job, and it was never part of the plan to become a full-time “influencer” or whatever they call it today. And, life happens. The loss, the grieving, my surgery. For the longest time, it felt like I couldn’t reach the shore, and every attempt I made was exhausting me to the point it didn’t even make sense to try anymore.
“Can’t rain all the time”
Today, things are “better” I guess since I’m here, writing to you again and it feels good. I have a job I love, and lovely coworkers, I live with my sassy-wonderful-lovely Siberian husky, Aisling (you can follow her on Instagram: @aisling_siberianhusly), in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Paris. I go to my ballet classes. And, I also finished the first draft of my first novel!! Now I need to go back and edit each chapter and stay consistent with my writing routine until I can finally send it!
And I guess I’m back at blogging! I don’t know if people read blogs anymore as today’s trend is all about Tik Tok, Youtube shorts, and Instagram Reels videos, but just in case you missed a good all-time blog post and old fashion content creation, know that you can come here and enjoy some reading with a new update once a week! In the meantime, you can still find me on Instagram: @frompariswithlove_byniloufar,
Until next time, Have a lovely day,
