It feels like I have so much to share with you this weekend. The internet just popped (or perhaps it’s because I was away during last week) with a bunch of interesting and fun posts. I hope you’ll enjoy!
• If you want more tips about Corsica, like where to stay, what to see and where to eat I suggest having a look at Little Pieces of Light’s post about our amazing trip. Gorgeous photos and everything you need to know in one post!
• I’m terribly sorry for all the Corsica talk but that place managed to steal my heart. And so did this restaurant. It’s a restaurant that specialises in langoustines. Could it get any better than that? I think not. Diane takes you to Petite Marie, which you’re not allowed to miss if you’re heading to Bastia!
• Thank you Melissa for featuring me on your “Beautiful Blogger Award” list, I’m very flattered! It’s also a great list if you want to find even more blogs about Paris. You can never get enough of Paris inspiration, right?
• The HiP Paris blog recently published a post about left bank vs. right bank and it got me thinking… I don’t think I could choose just one! The right bank has the cosy Marais neighbourhood, the beautiful Jardin du Palais Royal, the fantastic shopping on Rue Saint Honoré while the left bank has Saint Germain with all the pretty cafés, Jardin du Luxembourg and the my favourite restaurants in the 7th. I’m torn to say the least!
• One of my favourite people is Sofia Coppola. I simply adore her personal style, that stunning bag for Louis Vuitton and now her home as well. Thanks to Katie Armour I got a little peek inside.
• Vanity Presse asked me about my favourite beauty products and you can find my answers right here. Thanks for the feature!
• While in Corsica I had to wear a bikini to get in that lovely water so I’ve already faced my bikini season fear this year but for those of you who haven’t done that just yet, you should check out Garance’s article about how you do it in the very best way! Just so that you can avoid freaking out, promising to never wear a swimsuit again and running straight to the nearest boulangerie to stuff your face in deliciousness…
Tonight it’s “La Nuit Européenne des Musées” here in Paris which means that a bunch of museums in the city are open in the evening and during the early night. I’m thinking about exploring Musée d’Orsay or see the view of a lit up Paris in the night from Centre Pompidou. Hope you’ll have a wonderful weekend!
Here’s a couple of snapshots from my trip to Corsica. We found an amazing beach, delicious ice cream, a restaurant that served us the best langoustines ever, ate strawberries on the beach overlooking the ocean, wandered the narrow and colourful streets in Bastia and had the most amazing dinner view. For more updates you can follow me on Instagram!
I just came back to Paris after a few absolutely wonderful days spent in Corsica. Even though I’m happy about being back in Paris, I can’t deny the fact that I already want to go back. Corsica was gorgeous and I can’t wait to share my vacation photos with you during the coming days! If anybody’s contemplating on going there I can highly recommend it. But before I share those photos with you, you can enjoy my weekend reading list!
• The Met gala took place in New York city earlier this week and the theme was punk in honor of this year’s exhibition, Punk: Chaos to Couture. Everybody who’s anybody was of course there, some people went all out with the theme while others kept it classic. Some of my favourites from the night were: Gwyneth, Cameron, Sarah-Jessica and Diane.
• If you can’t wait to indulge in gorgeous Corsica photos I think you should check out Diane’s posts from our fabulous trip!
• Another blog I’ve recently stumbled upon is The Fresh Exchange. It’s the perfect combination of gorgeous photography and lovely typography. My favourite part must be when they went to Paris!
• I know that I’ve been terrible at updating the blog recently, due to both sickness and vacation. If you want to get more frequent updates you can follow me both on Facebook and Instagram.
• I just came back from my little vacation and I’m already dreaming about both going back and going to other places. These lovely photos, from the blog Sweet Thing, made me want to pack my bags again and drive out to the country side.
• Can’t get enough of links and weekend reading? Have a look at Meg’s wonderful suggestions right here.
I hope that you all are having a wonderful weekend so far! Here are my tips for some reading/surfing if you want to cosy up in front of the computer during a couple of minutes (or hours — that’s up to you) this weekend. Enjoy!
• I’ve found a new favourite blog that I can’t keep my eyes off (thanks to my lovely Grace). Christine tells the story about two of my favourite cities on earth; Paris and New York, and her photos make my knees week. So pretty!
• Speaking of New York… I would like to book a ticket tomorrow just to be able to take a few photos inside the New York Public Library just like Danielle from the blog Pasadya. What a gorgeous space.
• If you wonder about what I prefer to do during warm spring evenings here in Paris, you should check out Diane’s post right here.
• As I said last weekend, I’ve never really fallen in love with London as a city but these photos from the blog Hjertesmil (and the ones from last week) makes me want to rethink it all… Perhaps London is something for me? London always looks so gorgeous through her lens!
• So far I haven’t found that many beauty products I can’t live without here in Paris but Garance has, so let’s take a look at her list instead!
• A list that always excites me is The Worlds’ 50 Best Restaurants! I looove scrolling through the list to find restaurants I’m dreaming about visiting, places I’ve already eaten at and restaurants that I don’t understand how they made it up there among the others… On this years’ top 50 list I can at least check off five restaurants I’ve already eaten at. Only 45 more to go, haha!
• Last weekend I also told you that I love little “behind the scenes” peeks and this post by Jamie Beck did not disappoint. Just imagine getting the chance to be a part of a team like that!
• I don’t consider myself to be photogenic at all and that’s why Garance’s tips will be put to use from now on!
• Of course the photos from Jamie Beck’s trip out to Palm Spring makes the cut for my weekend reading post. I adore seeing all the behind the scenes photos to then finally being able to see the final result as well!
• As I told you before, I adore Olivia and her gorgeous gems. Now Diane is doing a giveaway which makes it possible for you to win a piece from her collection. Bonne chance to you all!
• I’ve never been a big London fan (perhaps because I haven’t been for such a long time…) but these photos, from the blog Park & Cube, made me want to book a ticket to the city right away. I should really go soon! Especially since it’s so close by…
• If there’s something I adore sometimes (well, probably most of the time) it’s simplicity. And some people do it so well! Like Alice for example.
• The New York Times lists the 9 best walks in all of Europe. I’ve been telling myself to go to the “Paris Promenade” for such a long time, but I guess I really have to put that on top of my list now.
• Last week I told you about a site that featured paintings of New York windows, this weeks it’s a site that does New York buildings.
Here’s my weekend reading list this Saturday. Enjoy!
• This list by Dessert for Breakfast makes me want to book a ticket to San Francisco, like tomorrow. And it’s only for desserts. Shame on me.
• Did you know that one of Paris’ most famous hotel, Hôtel Crillon, is closing down for renovation during a couple of years and is now having an auction for everything in the hotel? A little bit sad in my opinion but it’s fun being able to see everything too. Paris Breakfast takes you inside.
• Going to New York? Jamie Beck shares her favourite eats in the city that never sleeps (unintentional semi riming).
• I found this little site the other day, called Windows of New York, and I’m absolutely in love! Such a fun idea and gooorgeous images. I love all these creative people! And I would love to see a Paris-version in the future as well…
• I don’t think it’s possible to look any cuter than this. Have you seen this stunning dress (or whole look rather)?! Of course it’s Nicole from the blog Gary Pepper I’m talking about.
• If you’re wondering what I’m up to in the middle of the night here in Paris, Milsters gives you the answer right here.
• I want to order this book for my upcoming trip to Corsica. Have any of you guys read Grace Coddington’s memoirs?
• Garance Dore’s writing always makes me laugh, smile or evokes emotions in some way. Her recent post about friends didn’t disappoint. I couldn’t agree more with her conclusions and I’m so thankful for getting to know so many awesome girlfriends here in Paris!
… And that reminds me: it’s time for girls’ night out tonight! Time to put on those high heels. Have a great weekend everybody!
After spending most of the week sick in bed I’ve already done both my reading and surfing for the weekend and plan on spending today and tomorrow out and bout in Paris! But for those of you who want to spend sometime at home this weekend, here are my tips for some weekend reading:
• I adore these photos of Paris by Inès ☆ that I found through Katie Armour. I can’t wait for summer! Picnics along the Seine, summer dresses and wine at cafés during the late evening…
• Check out Carla’s post on all things French, just in time for spring. Thanks for the little mention Carla!
• I almost fell off my chair when I saw these yummy looking cupcakes from Sugar Daze that Meg managed to capture so pretty. I guess I have to live vicariously through these photos until I can drop by for a second visit.
• I looove when Jamie Beck goes to Paris. It’s so fun to see the city you live in through somebody else’s eyes. Find out where she stayed and what she ate while in Paris. And be sure not to miss her gorgeous photos of the city itself. Love love love!
• You probably know that I love my little neighbourhood café to bits by now, but it’s always fun to read about other people’s experiences at the same place. If you’re looking for the perfect brunch in Paris I think you should take a look at Milsters‘ “Où Bruncher” series.
• New York Times lists their “46 Places to Go in 2013” and I can feel my longing for travelling just getting stronger and stronger! Although I won’t visit any of the cities listed on their list during 2013, I actually live in the city mentioned last on the list so I guess that counts for something, right?
• I need to try this recipe like right now, this very second. Looks. So. Yummy. Call Me Cupcake! does it to me every time…
