Weekend Reading

Eating Cake in Bed, photo by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

I’ve had so much work to catch up on this week that I’ve barely made it outside my little Parisian apartment. Instead I’ve been working from bed. While eating my favourite cake. Which isn’t too bad either if I can say so myself. But I can’t wait to get out and about with my camera soon again, which never seems to happen though since I want to catch up with so many lovely friends, who I’ve missed during the holidays.

•   How could you not dream away when seeing photos like these? Nicole makes me long more than ever for summer to arrive!
•   I do love a good red carpet dress and this year’s Golden Globe Awards treated us to a few at least. My favourites? Lupita in Ralph Lauren, Emilia in Proenza Schouler, Cate in Armani Privé and Emma in Christian Dior.
•   Thanks for reminding me Garance, I really want to see this movie! I hope they’ll show it with English subtitles here in Paris…
•   This week I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the lovely lady behind the blog Chocolate Cookies & Candies. You’ll find it here!

… And also! My new favourite cake is the gâteaux de voyage in the flavour caramel au beurre salé (I mean, how could you go every go wrong with caramel?) from Des Gâteaux et du Pain if you want to try it. Yum! And my striped pyjamas are from Oysho.

    I’ll try that cake when in Paris!! Cate was beautiful!! I agree!!

  2. OMG Carin! You’re such a baby and you’re doing such grand things. I’m not but utterly proud of you. Also I love a girl who can and loves to eat 🙂 Happy weekend! x

    • Haha thanks so much 🙂 I think I’ve eaten a little bit too much since coming here though, but I just can’t stop! So many yummy things everywhere! Happy weekend.

  3. Seriously, caramel for the win, every single time! Cate and Lupita were two of my favorites too. They are such Goddesses! Off to read the interview now! Happy weekend…

    Aww….thank you, Carin for putting up with me. You know what? After reading this post, I feel so much better about working from my bed. The husband was horrified that I spent an entire day on it but hey, it’s far more comfortable than my usual office chair 😛

  5. Great blog. Love getting lost in the photos. You’re making me want to go back to Paris ASAP!

    I was visiting Tami’s blog (Tami Jardine) and she mentioned for her readers to come visit here. She said it’s just lovely here, and I have to agree. 🙂

    Working from bed while eating cake, what could be better!!

  8. I loved Emma’s look at the Golden Globes, too. And I can’t wait to see Yves Saint Laurent – looks like it’s going to amazing!
