In Paris you find many conceptstores in the fashion field. My favorite one is Merci which is located in the 3th arrondissement. It is my favorite because when you enter it’s like a big house. The experience inside is amazing. They sell fashion, interior accessories, stationary, gadgets and books, all in one. Last time when i was there, they had an African print theme and the classic old red Fiat 500 had a new style. The clothes they sell are from their own brand Merci, Isabel Marant and many other cool French brands. The interior section is really big! I’m an interior junkie as well and they have a lot of cool stuff such as industrial lamps and nice tableware. If you are at Merci, I’d recommend you to take your time to see all the amazing stuff they sell on all the three floors!

Salut tout le monde! Here’s a little story about a couple of must-see’s and just some nice pictures to share with you. Previous week, we had some really sunny but also rainy days. So I either went out to discover new places and enjoy the city or I had to stay inside and work on motivation letters. Sometimes when I cycle through Paris, I have to stop to take a photo of a cute corner or from just a nice terrace. Never think: Oh never mind I will go back later, NO! Stop and grab your phone or camera. Here are some photos from my Instagram with a little explanation. Bisous!
One of the places I recently discovered in the 6th was Huguette at Rue de Seine. This ‘bistro de la mer’ is always full of people who are enjoying a nice plate of oysters, fish & chips, mussels with fries or a good pasta vongole. They have got a extensive choice of wine too! You can also get wine and oysters ‘to go’ if you want, but having dinner there is a treat! In the afternoon their terrace is in the sun and it feels like you’re at the Côte d’Azur for a couple of hours. I photographed the decoration of Huguette, because I like the clean style with a mix of a couple of old things like the menu plates and their white tiles. The architect did a really good job! A tout suite!

Sajoer is the first slow juice bar in Rotterdam. Their mission is to make people healthier and happier. I already knew Sajoer from the Markthal, but now they have their own shop at the Botersloot 46a. The juices are made of local and seasonal products. Besides the juices, they also sell salads and ginger shots! Not bad, right? The decoration of the store is very pretty, restful and a nice place to hang out with friends! For the party animals, they’ve got a juice for your hangover, in case when you can’t handle it and want to be fit ;)!
On Sundays, everybody in Paris is going out for a brunch. Almost everything is closed so it is the best activity to fill in your Sunday. I haven’t tried a lot of places yet but in my opinion, one of the best is Claus. You can choose different brunch menu’s and they are all magnifique! I can recommend you all of them. The products are all fresh, home made and super delicious. You also get a fresh juice (mixed fruit, detox or jus d’orange) and a warm drink. On the other side of the street, you will find the ‘epicerie’ of Claus for the to-go products and coffee if you don’t have time for a brunch. Make sure you have a reservation in the weekend!
