MERCI

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!

PARISIAN SECRETS

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!

SPRING VIBES IN PARIS

Last few days it was so rainy in Paris, but this weekend will be sunny (so they say). I told a french waiter that I had the feeling I was in Holland, because the Dutch people are used to a lot of wind and rain. What Parisian people surprises the most, is that Dutchies always ride their bikes, even when it’s raining haha!  It is our main form of transport. I took some photos last week before the sky turned into one big grey cloud. I can’t wait to enjoy spring and relax in Jardin du Luxembourg with some french (study)books and magazines. I’m lucky it is so close to my place, just a few minutes away!

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT PARIS

One thing I really like about Paris is the architecture, I can’t stop taking pictures of buildings. Every street corner has something special and romantic. I always wonder how people have decorated those big apartments. Nearly all apartment buildings are decorated with carefully styled ornaments and have beautiful wrought iron balconies which give this special look which is so typical for Paris.

Casual spring look

Hi everyone! Spring has started and I can’t wait to wear different clothes in stead of all those long warm wollen coats. I took some photos last week at Place Saint-Sulpice for a ‘Look of the day‘ for Amayzine.com. I’ve put on my leather jacket (which has been waiting in the closet for too long closet) with my cosy Levi’s jeans and sneakers. I made this t-shirt myself, which was easy and fun to make! I bought the letters at Marché Saint Pierre in the 18th arr. A funny fact I’ve discovered there, is that many parisian women wear their cross bags under their jackets/coats. It’s not only safer, it is in my opinion also more stylish to wear!

HOTSPOT: HUGUETTE

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!
