One more reason to love fall! PS: did you know that the second Monday of every month is #MacaronMonday at Malmaison? You do now ūüėČ Mention Macaron Monday on October 13, buy one macaron (pumpkin Pie Spiced or not) and get one free!

Macarons are $2 a piece at Malmaison and typically sell in the following flavours:¬†Lemon, Raspberry, Mixed-Berry, Pistachio, Salted Caramel, Toasted Coconut, Chocolate Hazelnut, & Orange. I can’t wait to try this new seasonal flavour!

My french Film Festival Point Com


MyFrenchFilmFestival.com was quite a success last year with 750,000 film viewings in different 189 countries so it’s not a surprise that the leading worldwide French film festival on the Internet is back on our computers. The 4th edition of MyFrenchFilmFestival.com takes place between 17th¬†January and 17th¬†February and feature¬†10 features and 10 shorts in 13 different languages. ¬†That’s all great, but my favourite part of the whole festival? The poster! I find it quite brilliant of course ūüėČfrench film festival, french films, french movies, french, french culture, how to watch french films online, movie festivals


You can download the film on iTunes for a fee but if you’re in DC, you can also screen them for free at Malmaison and Napoleon Bistro and Lounge. Starting on February 3rd, Napoleon will screen Augustine and¬†Le jour des Corneilles (2/3 at 7PM),¬†Au galop and¬†Comme un Lion (2/4 at 7PM) and¬†J’enrage de son Absence and Mobile Home (2/5 at 7PM). After that the festival continues at Malmaison with¬†La Vierge, les Coptes et Moi and¬†Mariage √† Mendoza (2/6 at 7PM) and all of the short films on the 8th.

I haven’t seen or heard much about any of the films (Augustine does screen on Netflix right now though) so I can’t really tell you much about them. Let me know if you see any of them and they are any good though!!
