You might possibly notice some changes around here... An Experiment in Poverty exists no longer. Now this blog is called avec la fleur, and I'm pretty happy about it! I needed a change to get me excited about blogging again. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you'll probably recognize the name. I got it from an old French teacher of mine. On the first day of class, I had a big, giant flower in my hair, and he referred to me as "jasmine avec la fleur." I liked it. I took it. It stuck. I think it's appropriate for me, especially with a name like Jasmine.

Anyway, the blog got a new name and a bit of a facelift. I've got one of those fancy Instagram galleries in my sidebar to the left and a link to our shop in the sidebar to the right. Ménagerie also got a little bit of sprucing up. I re-photographed some listings and added some new headbands. Cecily did a little bit of modeling for me:



She's an excellent model. You can check it all out here.

And that's about it! I think I'm finally ready to start blogging a bit more now instead of only sticking to my 52 project posts and my monthly Cecily updates. Feel free to update my URL in your bookmarks. It's aveclafleur.com. You can also continue using the old URL since it will redirect you.

Here's to change!


  1. That top headband is super cute!

  2. Oh I like it! It's fun to get a blog-facelift! :)

  3. yay!! I really do hope blogging can get back in full swing. I miss it and the community in it. instagram doesn't cut it .

  4. Love the new name! And as soon as my paycheck hit I'm grabbing on of those headbands. So cute.
