Weekend Reading

Pink Peonies at Home, photo by Carin Olsson of Paris in Four Months

While I’m attending the amazing Gucci Paris Masters this weekend (I can’t wait to show you guys the photos) I thought I’d share some of my favourite links that I came across this week. If I wasn’t doing that though I certainly wouldn’t mind snuggling up on my couch with a cup of green tea and a gingerbread macaron or two while browsing through these again.

•   Last week I read Garance’s post on “Things New Yorkers Do” and then this week I read her piece on “Things Parisians Do“. I have to say that I caught myself laughing and nodding along while reading the whole post. The worst of it all? I think I’m slowly becoming one of them… Ignoring red lights, sighting annoyingly at “slow walkers” and ditching museums for a stop at the Bon Marché. But I mean, who wouldn’t?
•   Nicole Franzen in Rome. I couldn’t think of a better combination.
•   Central Park looks pretty darn good in all those autumn colours, captured so beautifully by Jamie Beck.
•   And oh, I can’t wait to see this!

    I read those 2 pieces on Garance as well and laughed because I am a New Yorker, but I adore Paris, so I related to both. :)

    I was fortunate enough to spend New Years in Paris a couple of years ago. I stayed with friends of a friend who took us to a house party, which couldn’t have been more ideal!

    And, sadly, Central Park already no longer looks like that. :(

    Enjoy the city for me! :)

    I’ve never been to New York or Paris, but I found Garance’s posts very interesting. And, I agree, Central Park looks amazing with all those autumn colours.

    I love the “Things Parisians Do” article, so true! I also found myself turning into one while I was there :) The Coco Chanel movie also looks great, can’t wait to see it!
