Tell Me

Outside Ladurée by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

So now I’ve been back in Paris for little bit more than two months. Gosh, time really flies by quickly! And I’ve been wanting to ask you about what you want to see more of here on the blog. It’s always fun to hear your opinion and I always appreciate your input. So is there anything you’re missing? Anything you want more of? Food, sweets, window displays, fashion, a Q&A, general tips, culture? Lay it on me, I want to know!

  1. Anna's mom    March 12, 2013

    French beauty products, please! 🙂

  2. Paprika    March 12, 2013

    I’d love to see where the best places to go are, but I love what you are doing alreadyxx

  3. Bev    March 12, 2013

    Where do you go for beautiful smelling candles? I’ll be in Paris soon!

    • I just returned from Paris, and though you can get them in the US, you should visit Diptyque! Their candles are amazing.

  4. Babs    March 12, 2013

    Where can you go to buy a beautiful (not expensive) Chanel-like purse?

  5. Can you give us your suggestions of where to get the best shots of Paris during different times of the day? Also I would like to know more about your camera kit too! 🙂

  6. Kim    March 12, 2013

    City views are always great, more food is good! 😀

  7. Daniella    March 12, 2013

    Yes! I agree with french beauty products, but I also think it’d be fun to see a bit of your own personal style, and parisian culture as well. I love your everyday photos though, has me dying to visit Paris again soon, *sigh*

  8. Linnea    March 12, 2013

  11. Jess    March 12, 2013

    I love that you asked this- I may ask my readers the same thing in a couple of weeks. I am a brand new reader, and I love all of your photographs, so I enjoy any posts that feature those. Generally I like views around the city, food pictures, and tips on restaurants/cafes 🙂

  12. Ah, you’re such a considerate blogger. Hope you find beautiful ways to stay warm and dry these next few days! 🙂

  13. Laurie    March 12, 2013

    I love your posts on places to go to eat incredible food. Also your random photos are wonderful also. Makes me want to go back. I hope one day I can do what you have done.

  14. Sivan    March 12, 2013

    everything you do is great! Windows Displays will always be a great idea as most blog I follow usually post about food. Also, which camera are you using? I’ve notice some images are taken with your phone, but what about the rest? Keep it up. I love your style

  15. Sherri Calosso    March 12, 2013

    I love all of your blog posts! Local jewelry designers, flower shops, local hang outs, hidden parks…

  16. Shopping in Paris – how is it unique and what’s different?

  17. SecondCityMom    March 13, 2013

    I love your photography. Can you share with me the camera you use and the lenses?

  18. Embla    March 13, 2013

    Food, sweets, and scenes of your favorite beautiful spots/discoveries around the city! I actually just came back from Paris and went to a lot of places because I had seen them on your blog. 🙂 Also any cultural tidbits are always of interest.

  19. From Berkshire to Buckingham    March 13, 2013

    Take us to Paris! Highlight various places–gardens, museums, boulevards…everything we love but can’t be there to enjoy. You do a lovely job as it is, so I am not worried. 🙂

  20. I love your blog and snapshots of Paris! I’d love to see the inside of your Parisian apartment! I’m intrigued by the tiny kitchens in Paris.

  21. bb    March 13, 2013

    It would be wonderful if you could show us the literary venues, cafes that the famous literary figures of the Left Bank hanged out, and also Paris’s flea markets. Many thanks in advance. B

  22. Stella    March 13, 2013

    Dressing up for the season tips. Oh and French men! XD

  23. Pamela RG    March 13, 2013

    I would like to see if there are any festivals around Paris. What are the latest art exhibitions that you have attended if any? Shopping places would be great too. Merci, Pamela

  24. Bev    March 13, 2013

    Thank you for the candle idea 🙂

  25. Claire    March 13, 2013

    Love the visual details you already gift us with. Love that you make time everyday to blog. Anything that makes you laugh or brings a smile gives us readers a lift too. Any reflections you want to share about the ups and downs of making a life in Paris would also be welcome. If you meet someone interesting in the art, design, fashion, food, artisan, Thank you for asking!

  26. Lattequeen    March 13, 2013

    I’d love to hear how you make it work freelance and decide what you can spend on fashion, and restaurants and rent ect. Do you have a budget, or do you save for a special bag or shoes, how do you make it all work. I love your posts because its you living your life in beautifull Paris. But it seems like a lovely life…makes me want to pack in the 9-5 and leave the west coast and go for it!

  27. Xenia    March 13, 2013

    Well, when I subscribe to a blog I want to know more about the blogger. I do love all the photos of Paris and you take FABULOUS photos! However, blogging has evolved over the years. It has expanded our worlds and you meet people that you would never met if it was not for the internet and blogging. I have made some friends from blogging regularly. One of my dear blogger friends lives all the way in Australia and I live in Upstate New York. How wonderful is that?

    There are so many fashion and makeup blogs already and while I think you should definitely keep doing that, what makes a blog even more special is when you share some of your personal self. You don’t have to share anything that you are not comfortable with, but there is lots that you can share. I want to see what your Paris apartment looks like. I mean full view rooms, not only close up elements in the room. No one will be able to guess where you live by looking at your living room so you don’t need to worry about that. Thousands of bloggers have let us into their homes including me.

    I would like to know what movies and books you love and why. What are some of your aspirations? Do you want to remain in Paris for the rest of your life or stay for a while and after several years explore another place?

  28. lavinia    March 13, 2013

    Thanks for the good question. I would like to see more people, more real parissienne, street style (not as in the sartorialist, more with your personal style), you can choose the way you want (while they walk, eat, talk), I would like to see singles, couples, young and old people…just to see Paris through their eyes, when you look at people on the street you see how the city changes, how fashion changes…thanks in advance

  29. Elise    March 13, 2013

    Love seeing what you’re wearing, the last piece of the ‘living in Paris’ puzzle-what to wear every day to blend in with the chic French girls! Love your blog!

  30. robyn    March 13, 2013

    I love your blog. It is my best “new discovery”. I’d love to see Paris home interiors and any fashion shots…but everything you do is fabulous!

  31. Demetra    March 13, 2013

    I would love to see more about how French women dress casually, their makeup, what they consider essentials, etc. Living life comme la parisienne!

  32. Salima Bennou    March 13, 2013

    I would like to see more food, window displays/fashion, and architecture of Paris!

  33. boyishpink    March 13, 2013

    I would love to know more about you! – Q&A 🙂

  34. Jennifer Louise    March 13, 2013

    I would love to know all about your unique finds in Paris. Let me explain, I love listening to your trips to the popular places in Paris, but what are you favourite ‘undiscovered’ places to visit? Jennifer xx

  35. Nat    March 13, 2013

    I would like to see more of a parisienne style, too. I bet many people have that image of an impeccable, nonchalant woman, that french je ne sais quoi. Could you somehow capture that myth for your readers with your camera?

    Thank you!

  36. Roberta Roth    March 13, 2013

    Please tell us more about your routine, the differences of living in France and show us more of the french culture!

  37. Maria    March 13, 2013

    How about a top ten things to do/see in Paris?
    I like your photos.

  38. Lily    March 14, 2013

    Adore this blog, but above all, I’m inspired by your courage in the choices you’ve made. As someone who dreams of making a similar leap, I would love to know more concrete (and possible less glamorous) details as to exactly how you’ve made this happen. Give us the dirty details (pretty please) on what kind of budget it takes; how did you find work/ internships there; how much did you save before you moved; just how strong of a grasp on the French language would suffice…you know, all the boring details to help make this dream a reality. Ahhh so many things to consider. You’re living the dream — my hero!!

    I’d like to see all of the above and whatever catches your fancy. I am totally living vicariously in Paris through you and it’s wonderful. Like you’ve never been to Hawaii, I’ve never been to Paris as we are a half-a-world apart. Thank you (“mahalo” in Hawaiian) for sharing your world!

  41. Erin Smith    March 16, 2013

    I have to say that I already love what you blog about! Your blog is definitely my new favorite. The types of posts I love the most are the French lessons, photos from your walks, and photos of pastries (drool-worthy). Like others, I’d love to see Parisian apartments and tips on how to find one, more recommendations of places to go when one visits Paris, tips for how to “fit in” with Parisians (e.g. what to say in a shop to be polite, how to dress), and fashion posts where more affordable look alikes are included. Keep up what you’re doing- it’s fantastic!

    I personally think your blog (one of my absolute favourite daily reads) is perfect the way it is. You are showing a touch of everything that makes Paris a dream & giving me a long list of ‘must dos’ for my visit next March!
