Early Morning

This was my view during an early morning walk on my way to DVF the other day. Doesn’t it look like an enchanted city or something out of a Disney movie? Absolutely gorgeous and even though my fingers froze to death and my mascara started running down my cheeks because of all the snow it was so worth it to stop for a little while.

Today’s Sweet

Ladurée by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

Even though I’ve tried quite a few pastries by now I haven’t found that many that have hit a perfect home run for me. Yes, it might sound weird but many that that I’ve tried have either been too sweet, just “blah” or simply bad… But not this time! This little treat that I found at Ladurée is just delicious. I’m going back as soon as I can for to pick up another one. The combo of pistachio, strawberries and raspberries was aaamazing!

Île Saint Louis

An early evening spent on Île Saint Louis. It’s so cozy with all of the lights that are still up. I’m really looking forward to my upcoming move! Then I can wander these streets non stop.

It’s been snowing for three days in a row now which has resulted in quite a bit of snow! Most of the buses are cancelled and I’ve seen several cars having problems with getting out of their parking spaces so far. Let’s just say that the city wasn’t that prepared… But it hasn’t all been negative! It seems like the Parisians are super excited about the newly fallen snow that has covered up Paris in all white. I’ve walked pass a bunch of snowball fights, and yes, both between six year olds and 26 year olds. Many Parisians also seem to turn in to “tourists” for a few short seconds, taking out their cell phone cameras to document the winter wonderland that Paris has become.

It seems like Parisians aren’t that used to a lot of snow, which is understandable since it doesn’t snow as much here as I’m used to. As I’ve said before I hate everything that has to do with the cold and winter but for some reason it feels so much more fun with snow in Paris than back in Stockholm. Plus, you can’t deny how beautiful the city looks covered in all the white…

Winter Wonderland

Snowy evening in Paris by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

It’s been snowing for a few days in Paris now and the city is absolutely beautiful. I usually hate the snow (and anything related to the cold), but since it’s making everything look so pretty I guess it’s ok if it’s stays for a little while. But just for a little while, then I want spring to be on its way please!

(I’ll promise to share more photos of Paris in the snow with you all but at the moment the internship keeps me super busy! For more updates you can follow me on Instagram under the name “ParisInFourMonths“)
