Our Paris apartment, outdoors
It was so amazing to have a comfortable, beautiful patio to come home to each day. The weather was amazing, so sitting outside, enjoying the breeze, drinking tons of wine, and generally soaking up Paris was fantastic. Somehow afternoon snacks are infinitely better in Paris. (The baguettes, holy moly the baguettes.) This was on our […]
Long, long ago, I started using Evernote. And one of my first things to save in Evernote was the menu from Buvette, because it was so simple and inspiring and wonderful. And then the owner opened a replica of Buvette NYC in Paris. And then we happened to stay a few blocks away from it, […]
The guys at Little Red Door recommended that we stop in to Artisan, which was just a block or so from our apartment. We’re so glad they did, because it was wonderful! We went for an early dinner at the bar, which was perfection. The bartender was so nice, and was British, like many of […]
Speakeasies and things.
So as you know by now, I’m a freakish researcher and a lover of all things Paris. So before we left, I looked up EVERYTHING. And I found a few tiny bars that I thought we would love, and we wandered the streets until we found their hidden doors and all was fantastic. I really […]
We fell in love with this little shop! It was a shop devoted to great design – from lighting to books to baskets to pottery. We found some really cool things there, plus tons of ideas! We loved that the shop had a tiny espresso counter with three stools. After shopping, we sat down and […]
Les Bonnes Soeurs
Our first dinner was at Les Bonnes Soeurs, which was recommended by our apartment owner. It was a short walk away and was incredibly cute, with nearly every table full and the nicest waitstaff. Another thing – we had heard horror stories about rude servers (and rude French people in general), but we never experienced […]
Our Paris apartment.
This is when I post 800 photos of the amazing apartment we stayed in while we were in Paris. It was in Pigalle, just a few streets south of Montmarte, within a few blocks of the Sacre Couer, and near the metro, taxi stand, and a bajillion awesome shops, markets, and restaurants. The door was […]
And then there was Paris.
We loved Paris. We adored Paris. We didn’t want to come back from Paris. I don’t even know where to start. Maybe just with this: we LOVED Paris.
Ex Mauri, aka HEAVEN
I knew we’d be in Milan for a few hours before our flight to Paris, so I did mucho research and found this fantastic restaurant near the station. I made a reservation ahead of time, so when we arrived, they were expecting us. Most of the clientele were stunningly beautiful, amazingly dressed business men and […]
Train to Milan
So if you’re a woman who’s boarding a train to Milan with heavy bags, there will inevitably be several young men hovering near the car entrance smoking cigarettes. And when you try to heft your bag up the steps, they will grab it from you and carry it on the train and put it away […]
