The vain van...

I went to Bercy Village, an old part of Paris that they renovated about 15 years ago and turned into a pretty cool shopping and eating area and... I came across this amazing van called Le Boudoir des Cocottes. A boudoir is a private room where ladies can "powder their nose" and a cocotte is, well, a lady who is a little vain, in a nice way. This van is precisely made for them... They can have a manicure, make up, beauty tips... for affordable prices. How clever! I'm sure it's going to be a big success! Check the website.

  2. This is such a great idea. Make your own job, be your own boss. (Although, being France, is there a lot of paperwork to get the permissions? If not, maybe I should come up with a cool idea that would allow me to live there for a while.)

    1. A lot of paperwork?! Are you kidding? An enormous amount of paper work!

  5. I hate to say that this brings to mind the pink cadillacs of the Mary Kay cosmetics salespeople. I much prefer this vehicle. Nice shot of it too !

  6. I half expect Barbie to jump out of the glam van at any moment. Might get my toenails painted ;-)

  7. That.. is adorable. I love pink! A mobile manicure might be something fun. But what if you wanted to take a friend there and they had moved? Would you have to search the streets to find them? LOL
