FRENCH FRIDAY #30: En masse

Happiness Never Decreases by Being Shared (the Buddha)
La Tasse de Café | French Vocabulary by Mademoiselle Love





En masse

Pronounced: (ɑ̃ŋˈmæs)

Definition: all together, as a group
I am so stuffed and relaxed after an amazing Thanksgiving meal with the family in New Orleans that I cannot bring myself to fight the Black Friday crowds today, which reminds me of a great French expression...
En masse
Maybe this makes me a tad bit anti- social, but typically I can't stand doing anything en masse. Let's see what Amy Lynn and Simone think...

Let's see how Amy Lynn uses it...


Amy Lynn:  I so can't wait to get all kinds of Black Friday deals today! Wanna come shopping with me?

Simone: Eew! You totally would go with all of the fools en masse to, let me guess, Target!


Amy Lynn: Well, at least I'll get all of my, like, Christmas shopping done, and maybe I just won't, like, get you a gift since you're so nasty.

Simone:  But, but... 


How do you feel about Black Friday and shopping en masse? Might you prefer Cyber Monday?



Merci Beaucoup,
Mademoiselle Love

Jenée here: 
As much as I love shopping, I am very picky about which kind of over populated  shopping experiences I will partake in. 
A: New York City sample sales of my favorite designers - Yes! 
B: Opening day of Missoni for Target - Yes! 

Though, I prefer to take the high road when it comes to grabbing and pushing - nothing sophisticated about that. Also, your karma will show on the sleeve of your new frock if that's what you did to score it. Remember: Happiness Never Decreases by Being Shared

Enjoy the season of shopping & Stay tuned for my Holiday shopping list !!!

The Origin of "La Tasse de Café", French for "the cup of coffee"
is a morning radio show out of Ville Platte, Louisiana on KVPI-FM
My dad listens to it regularly to keep up with his Cajun French as he now doesn't have much opportunity to speak it in Louisiana where the language is disappearing. 
Since I'm from Cajun land in Louisiana, with a serious interest in fashion and Mademoiselle Love, a Louisiana girl too, who is head over heels in love with everything French and everything coffee, it was only fitting we pay tribute to our roots and our new found loves.
Tune in to KVPI every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 8:45AM (NY time) for your Cajun French lesson and come back to the blog every Friday for more French lessons from Mademoiselle Love. We will discuss useful French  words or expressions for the fashionable girl. To make it even more enjoyable, we will do it over a very fashionable cup of coffee.
