PARISIAN SECRETS

Bonjour tout le monde! I would like to share my Parisian secrets which I found up to now. Here are a couple of places and shopping areas you should visit as you go to the most romantic city of the world! Click on the title of the image to see where it is.

IMG_0076Place des Vosges in Le Marais (4eme arrondissement) is a beautiful square surrounded by terraces and restaurants. The shopping street Rue des Francs-Bourgeois ends on Place des Vosges. So after your shopping work-out, you can drink a cafe au lait or a good glass of wine to relax and enjoy the Parisian life!

IMG_0276Rue Motorgueil is a nice street full of nice little shops, restaurants and terraces close by Le Loup. It is also near by Rue Tiquetonne, a must-see street with small boutiques and the big vintage shop ‘Kiliwatch’.

IMG_0068Rue Saint-Honoré is a nice shopping area if you want to visit boutiques like Longchamp, Tara Jarmon, CosmoParis and Furla. Conceptstore Colette is also located in this street. There are a couple of terraces where you easily can spot the Parisian fashionista’s. Don’t forget to make a stop for a lunch or dinner at Marché Saint-Honoré.

Claus

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!

Marché Maubert

There are many food markets in Paris. The one close to my house is Marché Maubert.  Normally you just buy fruit and veggies to prepare a meal, you don’t really pay attention to the structure or the bright colours of it. When you use them for photography, you’ll find out it is really interesting and sometimes even stylish when you use it for a still!

 Le Loup is a beautiful restaurant in the 1st arrondissement in Paris. It’s nearby the Louvre and Châtelet. The ambiance is very special and the decoration is stylish and cool. Even the lay-out of the menucard is superbe (and the food of course).

Hotspot: Paris New York

Since I’m here in Paris, I want to try every cool hotspot for a nice bite or a cocktail. Living in a big city has got many advantages. There is so much to do in Paris I can’t even choose were I want to go! Yes, that’s what you can call a luxury problem.

Previous week I went to Paris New York in Le Marais with my mom, near the metrostation Arts et Métiers. It’s a cool place were you can eat delicious homemade hamburgers, limonades and milkshakes. The restaurant is decorated in pastel colors with copper details, I LIKE! I found this secret place on my favorite website ‘My Little Paris’. Paris New York is located in Rue Perrée, where you can also find other cool hotspots like Nanashi Food and Café Pinson. Definitely a must see!
