These party cakes all look so perfect.
A little cliché of Paris is never a bad idea…
I am so excited to be featured on Brasilité this week.
This week I also discovered this new Denverite-Francofile who has a lovely blog.
I can’t wait to check out this expo when I get back from my trip to the states. Thanks, Anne & Puxan for such a fabulous glimpse of its awesomeness.
Gosh, Spring in Paris… I hope you stick around.
Strolling in the evening is always a plus. Especially when that thing lights up.^^
It has been eons since I’ve made a quiche. This one looks epic.
And for my sweet tooth, I just love Olivia’s recipes, and this one looks DELICIOUS.
Drooling over Jordan’s apartment.
More food porn.
Always good to have a recap. A guide to blogging.
This time last year in Denver.
Despite the sunshine today, which I love…. these winter Parisian photos make my heart melt a bit.
The food porn never stops. What I would do for burnin’ buffalo style chicken here in Paris.
Refinery 29 did a great recap on visting Denver. Check it out.
There is a special occasion this afternoon. Why not go crazy with sugary cocktails? More details later.
A lovely photo.
The last food porn example for the week.
The cutest pots ever.
Can’t wait to check out this new Parisian hotspot.
Shiz, I am ready for spring.
Sometimes a dinner out is exactly what I need. It’s always a tickle to my tummy to have to pick a restaurant for a date. This particular evening, Louis and I picked L’Eclair, a somewhat new spot on Rue Cler in the 7th arrondissement. I had been here for cocktails a few times prior, but always drooled when I saw them serve the food. It was destiny to go back for a date with my chou.
Don’t get me wrong, I love cooking at home, but a little push to treat ourselves for a dinner out every once in a while is a nice change of pace. Wouldn’t you say?
L’Eclair’s cocktail list is pretty rad. And unique. You can even do cocktails to share, punch-style, people. I stuck with my favorite cocktail there, the Navy Tea (Hendrick’s gin, fresh cucumber, honey, lime & Ginger Ale). Louis went with the Julep which was decked out with some fruit & mint and adorably crushed ice. I totally dig their Maker’s Mark cups. I’ve got to find me some of those…
The menus themselves are even lovely. The fonts & style. Yum!
And of course concerning the grub. We both couldn’t resist burgers that night, they sounded too damn good. And they were delicious. Home run.
The atmosphere is a bit noisy, so this place isn’t recommended if you’re looking for a quite and calm place to chat and such. It’s rather dark, but with beautiful furniture and decoration with upbeat tunes and vintagy goodness. I dig the casual-ness of this bar. It’s quite trendy.
Completely off-topic, but I hear their brunch is to die for.
I definitely recommend L’Eclair for a date. Even for pre-dinner cocktails. And it’s like a 5 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower… just sayin’.
You can check them out on Facebook and on Yelp for visual proof and reviews.

Sometimes it’s nice to start a Saturday morning with a coffee date da ladies. This place we found randomly, right in the heart of Paris’s 7th district, only a short walk from that big iron tower that everyone loves so much.
This café and restaurant, Les Parisiennes, is where Home in Paris used to be, and it is precious as can be!
The pink polka dot room was the perfect surprise and just what we needed that Saturday morning… a burst of color and some coffee.
Little habits like this are so nice. It’s good to wander and get out of the house and such.
Cozy corners with oodles of whipped cream have a soft spot in my heart.
