This week didn’t go exactly as planned after I came down with a stomach bug on Monday. I spent two days in bed and spent the rest of the week trying to catch up (surprise, I’m not there yet). When I was sick it looked like the weather was gorgeous. Since Wednesday it’s been very grey – welcome to January in Paris! This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features Cédric Grolet’s gorgeous book for pastry lovers Fruit: The Art of Pastry, a cannelé recipe from Caudalie, my Paris apartment search and more.
I’m back in Paris after being home in the US for the holidays. While I didn’t originally intend on taking such a long pause from posting, it just kind of happened and I must say I really enjoyed it. It’s nice getting back into my normal routine, even with the lingering effects of jet lag. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a time-saving travel tip for flying into Paris, somMailier which is a fabulous French wine subscription box, a newsletter by the real Emily in Paris and more.
With the holidays rapidly approaching I’m spending a lot of time enjoying the festive atmosphere around Paris…and also trying to finish up holiday shopping. I love finding everyone something unique from Paris and this year both Romain and I are buying exclusively from small businesses. I know it’s not always possible to shop small when you’re looking for something specific, but I’ve been keeping my eyes out for options to share. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a set for a Champagne lover, personalized gifts from Marin Montagut, the Paris Museums card and more.
This week has been nonstop and I have a feeling the rest of December is going to feel exactly the same. It’s always the most wonderful and the busiest time of the year! This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features several Paris and French themed books, my personal favorite Christmas tree in Paris and more.
I spent most of my week wishing it was Friday so I am so glad that it’s finally here! This week has been a cold one in Paris, which I suppose is seasonally appropriate but it seems like November isn’t usually this cold. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone I think everyone can be on the same page that it’s officially the holiday season…even if I was ready to officially be in the spirit in October. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features several books that I’m coveting, Olympia Le-Tan Paris clutches, sweet Christmas cards with a French twist and more.
