This week was a busy one so I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty excited for a quiet weekend at home, even if it’s semi-forced. The 9 PM curfew really hasn’t bothered me so far – although word on the street is it might be moving up to 7 PM. That would be very unfortunate for restaurants that are already struggling to adapt to the current curfew. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features my new favorite version of the best margarita in Paris, a Versailles lunch spot to add to your list, La Grande Epicerie’s pumpkin pie recipe and more!
Weekend Links Week 19 features 18 articles about current events in France (lots of big changes this week!). Some of my favorites include a 1960’s guide to French fall fashion, a new museum opening in Paris in January, and a peek inside Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s new Champagne house.
Happy Friday from Paris! It’s a happy one for me because it’s the last night before the curfew officially hits and we have to be at home from 9 PM until 6 AM. The timing really doesn’t bother me because I’m normally at home during those hours, but it does make going out for dinner a little compliqué because restaurants will have to start closing around 7:30 PM. Anyways – this week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a perfect Paris lunch spot, a Jean Cocteau x Atelier Paulin collaboration, Walls of Wonders by Marin Montagut and more!
Weekend Links Week 18 is a mix of fashion (following Paris Fashion Week), odes to travel in France, with a side of Emily in Paris – because everyone is talking about it! I particularly enjoyed Kate Mosse’s piece on Carcassonne, you almost feel like you’re there. I hope you enjoy and would love to know if you have a favorite from this week!
We had another eventful week in Paris with the arrival of new COVID-19 related restrictions. As it turns out, they haven’t actually ended up being that restrictive. It does seem like the pace of life in the French capital has slowed, and it’s a welcome change. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features pink masks for Octobre Rose (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), a Pierre Sauvage’s wonderful new Be My Guest book on entertaining, the best cappuccino in Paris and more!
