Some of the Parisian metro stations are oh so lovely. What’s your favorite stop?
This was the most perfect crème brûlée from Le Coup de Torchon. It was even served on a doily.
A Chinese Feast is a video I made from the delicious feast I had on Wednesday nights with some other people in my grad program. It was a night filled with laughs and authentic Chinese and Vietnamese food! SO GOOD.
Just can’t get over this view sometimes.
Dreaming of tea on the countryside, though.
Felt and smelt a bit of spring this week… I hope it sticks around.
Sometimes it’s nice to stay in on a Saturday night and chat with a good friend across the ocean. And doing this on a rotary phone makes it even more exciting. (I got the rotary phone at brocante last year)
I’m addicted to tea parties.
I went to the Marché Couvert de Batignolles for the first time this week with Olivia. Boy was it lovely.
La Défense is such an interesting part of town. It is so spacious and modern, and when you’re so used to the beige Parisian buildings, it’s a mind twist! Plus, I had no idea there was so much modern art and statues and the likes there. I can’t wait to go back in the summertime. I will post more pictures from Valerie & I’s adventure on here soon.
I love mixing styles, and what better than polka dots with my grandmother’s Native American jewelry?
Finally got some of these ball lights that I’ve been drooling over. More girly goodness à la maison. Pourquoi pas?
P.S. Need some visually pleasing & adorably clever French lessons?
This morning I went to Creative Mornings for the first time, enfin! I have been meaning to go for quite some time now. The speaker, Christian de Boisredon, creator of Spark News, gave a prez titled “Happiness”. It was so nice to get some inspiration so early in the day.
Sometimes a simple lunch is just what I need. I am getting better and better at making homemade croque monsieurs. Gettin’ creative!
On Monday night, I was so lucky to get to check out Le Foodist‘s Daring Pairing. These happen a few times per month, and are a great way to discover French culture through two of France’s most prided things: cheese and wine. I can now safely say which cheeses can go with Sancerre, Corbières and Jurancon, and Saint Emilion. Bring it on. I can’t wait to take my mom to do this when she visits next!
I hope your week was smashing.
