Parisian Secrets

Salut mes amis! It is my first post since I’m back in Paris. I was a bit busy with seeing my friends and going back to school to study la langue d’amour. But I didn’t forget to make some photos while I was outside! Sometimes you have to stop to make a pretty picture of something. Every corner, store or street has something special. Here are some pictures which I’ve posted on Instagram last week(s) with a little story. Bisous!

insta3This corner at Rue Saint-Honoré and Place Vendôme is so pretty with the Chopard boutique. The buildings in the 1st arrondissement are all filled with luxury boutiques, amazing restaurants or breathtaking hotels.

There are a lot of nice places to watch people but if you want to see the rich & famous doing their ‘thing’ (read: shopping), this street is the best place to see them passing by with purchases from Hermès, Chanel and go on..

insta-5We all know these kind of pictures with flowers are a bit cliché, but I had to take this picture because these flowers were all PINK! My favorite color for sure.

insta-6These windows were just cute. This place is close to my home in the 5th, so I’m happy to see it more often.

instahfLa Favorite, one of my favorite spots in Le Marais at Rue de Rivoli. The decoration of this restaurant is really cool, a mix of industrial with a bit of Parisian bistro style. When you enter it, there is a smell of fresh baked muffins hmm.

instajsklfdsFinally found this book in French! I had it on my wishlist for a long time because I love the drawings and stories of Garance Doré. She shows in this book a couple of Parisian style items, inspiring French women and stories about the fashion world.

instassssLast week when I visited Le Bon Marché, there was an exposition of the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. His creations were also in the window displays and it looked really amazing!

isjdfijsIf you’re at Ile Saint-Louis, this place is very prominent (Café Saint-Regis). It is situated on a corner and you can see the beautiful Notre-Dame while you’re enjoying your glass of wine. The decoration ambiance is the same like La Favorite. There is barely no traffic at this square which makes this spot so nice!
