Caroline de Maigret : La plus cool des Parisienne à mes yeux de Montréalaise

Elle est une des icônes de la mode de notre génération. Elle une mélomane incontournable qui adore la musique. Elle est une des femmes les plus cool de cette planète.

Caro

Je vous présente en ce lundi 16 octobre 2017 Caroline de Maigret.

Caroline de Maigret

Pour ceux et celles qui ne la connaisse pas, voici l’occasion de faire sa connaissance et de vous laisser charmer par cette belle parisienne.

Née en 1975 en Neuilly-sur-Seine en France, elle est la fille d’un père politicien et d’une mère championne en natation.

Au cours des années 90, elle a travaillé avec les grands du monde de la photographie tels que Mario Testino et Peter Lindbergh (wow) quand elle résidait à New York. Mais qu’est-ce qui m’a impressionné avec Caroline est une fois de retour à Paris au cours de l’année 2003, elle lance sa boîte de production de musique. Je trouve ça audacieux et vu que j’adore la musique, disons que je la vois comme un modèle à suivre en ce qui concerne poursuivre ses passions et son instinct.

C et Y

Durant la même année, elle rencontre Yarold Poupaud et voilà le début d’une belle collaboration professionnelle et personnelle qui dure encore jusqu’à ce jour. Ils sont juste trop beau ensemble.

Caroline a écrit un livre en collaboration avec ses 3 copines qui sont Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan et Sophie Masqui. Ce livre est un ‘’must ‘’ à avoir chères fashionistas et femmes de ce monde. ‘’How To Be Parisian Wherever You are’’ est un incontournable livre à avoir. On parle toujours de ce style parisien, de cette attitude qu’elle semble à avoir cette Parisienne ultra cool. Le livre le décrit très bien, mais c’est bien plus que les tenues à porter.

Caroline

C’est une question d’attitude. En fait, tout est dans l’attitude. J’adore le chapitre sur les Simones , Not a wedding (tellement moi), cool or cold et la liste continue. Je ne peux pas m’en passer de ce livre.

How To Be Parisian

J’ai bien aimé lire un article qui décrit parfaitement Caroline sur le site web du magazine Elle France lors d’une entrevue avec la journaliste Françoise-Marie Santucci. Je vous partage le lien de cette belle entrevue.

Peut-être qu’un jour, je pourrais parler avec Caroline de musique avec un regard émerveillé sur son rôle en tant que productrice.

Caroline et Chanel

Et entre une conversation sur Les Beatles et Pink Floyd, on pourrait parler de son expérience de travailler avec Testino, Lagerfeld et Marc Jacobs tout en portant mes chaussures Converse et en sirotant un verre de vino.

Je vous laisse sur ce vidéo super géniale de Caroline de Maigret pour la maison Chanel.

D’autres belles surprises!

Big Ben… Why?

 

The game last Sunday was a complete disaster! It’s hard to swallow the way they lost this game. It seems like ‘déjà vu’.

Tomlin and R

I will focus on the fact that Ben Roethlisberger seemed to be lost. He is definitely not the same kind of player he used to be.  Not like when he started in 2003, with the Steel Curtain. He was amazed by his physical abilities, to run, and to be this big QB. Those where the days!

But something changed…

He was not the messiah that we were waiting for. The Steelers may have won their first Super Bowl in 2006, but Ben played like a really clumsy QB. And, that was the start of my brother love-hate relationship and I quickly follow.

But Ben can be The Greatest!

He wanted to have the respect that the Tom Bradys and the Payton Mannings of this world have, but he is not part of this very elite VIP club. Those guys have this special gift to be legends on the field. They are breathing Football with a capital F!

I never sensed that Ben had the same discipline as them . They make the play with such precision.  They are the showstoppers! Ben is a great addition to a showstopper unit, but he is not like the director directing a movie or a playwright directing his play. He is the Difference Breaker and he is a great QB.

roethlisberger

Mike Tomlin gave him the opportunity to actually be a Manning or a Brady but as Sunday’s game showed us, it just doesn’t work. It could be he had to much responsibilities on him.  Let Ben be the Ben. If they want to go far this season, this would be the remedy for this bad situation.

Could this be his last season?

Or, could it be the rebirth of the Big Ben?

Thursday interview with Gregg Farineau from The Sharpshooter Funding!

The Chronicle

I’m happy to share an interview with one of the members of the Sharpshooter Funding (SSF) family with you. He is truly one of sweetest people I talk to, and we both love the language of Molière! It’s fun to share this interest in the beautiful French language with someone.

His name is Gregg Farineau and he is the Director of Sales at Sharpshooter Funding.

It’s showtime!

SSF transparent logWhat do you like most about Montreal?

Well, I have been to Montreal only once, about 10 years ago. I am from France and old Montreal reminded me of back home quite a bit. I also thought the night life was unreal! We went out to Club Opera as well as the W Hotel, and a few other spots I really enjoyed. The city definitely has a lot to offer.

 Now you have joined the dream team, I’m talking about The Sharpshooter Funding team. How did it happen?

Well, I have known Dallas for over 20 years and I knew about Sharpshooter right away when it started so I asked him if there was ever an opportunity for me to jump on board to let me know. The opportunity came around January of 2017 when Paul asked Dallas if he knew anyone who speaks French, as there was a lot of potential business coming out of Quebec so I joined the team without hesitation.

Do you have plans to expand your services to small companies in Quebec?

We are offering our services to all businesses in Quebec, we just require that you have been in business for at least six (6) months, so that we can show you what we can offer you in terms of working capital options.

Since I love talking about sports and music, can you tell us which NFL team you are rooting for to win the Super Bowl (The Steelers, I hope)?

I would have to say the Baltimore Ravens, I was always a Ray Lewis fan and since we have a few players (past and present) from the team helping represent us they are my pick for the Super Bowl.

The Ravens have beaten The Steelers this weekend, I’m a little sad… Oh well, I wonder if they may face each other during the Playoffs. It’s really cool to see that some players (past and present) from the Ravens are supporting the Dream Team. My next question is about music. Let’s see what he says….

ravens-steelers-rivalry

You seem to be a big music fan, what is the best memory you have from a concert?

There have been so many great moments at music festivals and concerts that I have been fortunate enough to attend; it would be hard to narrow it down to one. I would have to say Empire of the Sun at Ultra Music Festival in Miami (2014) or the M83 in concert in Calgary last year were the two that come to mind right away.

My last question is what makes the SSF team The Dream Team?

Well, I think we work well together as we have all the pieces to make this a successful company. We have Bret as our spokesman as the majority of Canadians know who he is, myself and Dallas are motivated, hard workers and Paul is the whole brains of this operation who has an unrelenting work ethic. All these things combined make this a success and hopefully we can keep growing and keep helping as many businesses across Canada for years to come.

Thank you Gregg for this nice and cool interview!

Hitman

Last night, Dallas Hart and Gregg were at a fundraiser for The Sait Chinook Lodge Foundation. This foundation  is promoting education for the Indigenous community.

You can actually exclusively some pictures of this special event. I would like to thank the SSF ”Sharpshooter Funding” team to share with us those pictures.

I’m very proud that the Sharpshooter team is getting involve with some amazing Canadian charities.

It’s a pleasure interviewing the members of The Dream Team. More interviews will come on The Chronicle about their ventures and we will add in it some Pop Culture references, sharing some music knowledge and others interesting subjects to talk about.

Let’s the beat goes on!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m a woman.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are gathered here to witness….

…another act of misogyny in the universe of professional sports.

Cam Newton was so damn stupid with his response to Jourdan Rodrigue’s question. For one day, he beat out Donald Trump for stupidest comment.

Her question was really smart. It was about route running, which is the path a receiver takes before he catches the ball, and the fact that he had made some good adjustments with it. His reaction was just plain stupid. My blood pressure suddenly rose and I started swearing like my Haitian grandmother (RIP Grandma Sue!). Like, what the f….

Cam Newton Jourdan Rodrigue

If it were a man asking, he would have acknowledged him, but since in his language, it was a woman that he referred to as “female” (another thing that made me so mad), he was misogynist and disrespectful.

Cam Newton press conference

For some that didn’t saw the segment, here it is:

I love talking about sports and I love to learn more about them. In order to learn, you must do research and educate yourself. I think this is a good thing for everyone. Jourdan Rodrigue did her research, and you can see that she loves to learn to. If you just listen to some of the questions that journalists ask during a press conference with NFL coaches or players, you feel like it could be as dumb as when a presenter ask to an actress on the red carpet, who are you wearing.

Bill Belichick actually wanted to be asked really smart questions. I’m not a Pats fan at all, but if someone is willing to listen and notice the thought put into the questions we ask, I’m all for it!

Bill Belichick

I’m really surprised at Cam Newton. Especially after only a week earlier, he took a stand for Colin Kaerpernick. Now, he does a 180, and just puts his foot in his mouth.

I applaud Jourdan Rodrigue having done her homework. She is obviously a smart and passionate journalist.

I was never a big fan of Newton because I always felt that he was lacking certain sportsmanship qualities, but now, I just don’t respect him. Superman, yeah right…

Cam Newton

There are many journalists, lawyers, doctors, scientists, mechanics, you name it, that are women and they are facing these situations on a daily basis. Hopefully someday the conversation will change.

We are strong women

It’s 2017 damn it!

Wildflowers Forever

Yesterday was one of the saddest days for probably everyone. But, I wasn’t expecting such a sudden goodbye from one of the men that helped shape my life with his music, his wisdom, and his southern kindness.

Tom Petty

Tom Petty passed away, surrounded by his family and love ones, last night.

Music was and still is my savior. Growing up, his songs, along with my ultimate song goddess, Stevie Nicks, helped give me the feeling of being a free spirited little girl, when really I was more of an introvert, an outsider to my peers.

Tom was part of my musical therapy, especially in the magical band The Traveling Wilburys.

The world seems a little more helpless without Tom in it. He was always “gently sweeping his guitar” in a beautiful way.

Tom and his guitar

He made it okay to be wild and free.

Sharpshooter is in the house… Chronicle Style!

Lionel Ritchie’s song “Dancing on the Ceiling” was on my mind all weekend long. You must be wondering why…..

Chronicle black and white

Sharpshooter Funding and The Chronicle are teaming up!!

You see, The Chronicle has been posting some interesting articles about Canadian businesses lately and with the help of the Sharpshooter team, I think we can continue to rock it. I think it is important to encourage each other in our ventures. Through talking about those amazing businesses, the sky could be the limit for them.

The Sharpshooter dream team is like putting Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Dr. Jay, Joe Montana, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Serena Williams in the same place,working together. You have Paul Pitcher, Dallas Hart, Gregg Farineau, Jade Hart and the best there is, Bret the Hitman Hart. This is the best team! Oops, I forgot to add myself in. I am part of the team too! This collaboration will be epic.

Recently, Dallas and Gregg have had success with hundreds of Canadian merchants.I can’t wait to talk to you about them. They are so passionate about what they are doing and they are genuinely good business men. I couldn’t more honoured to have them as my sponsor. I’m very proud of what Dallas and Jade are turning out to be:two driven, passionate leaders. With a Dad clearly known as the best there is, it’s obvious that this quality was passed to the next generation.

The Dream Team, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. We will take this world by storm!

 

 

King of hearts

We will rock this world by storm and I would like to thank for the bottle of my heart The Dream Team.
