It’s been an interesting week in France and changes are definitely on the horizon due to the increasing COVID-19 numbers. 2020 has taught me that nothing is ever certain, so I’m trying to soak up as much of fall in Paris as I can. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France include a restaurant in Paris to put on your list to try, two facades that are sure to make you smile, and how you can sponsor a tree or bench in the Tuileries Garden.
Paris has been gorgeous (although a little hot) this week. I think it’s about to come to a screeching halt with the official arrival of fall next week. I’m ready to put away my summer clothes and dare I say I’m even excited for a week of rain. Or at least I think I am. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features French history and culture online courses, a collaboration between Dumbo and Septime, an upcoming Chanel Beauty exhibit in Paris, another margarita in Paris and more!
I love it when a week seems to fly by and that was the case this week. Getting back to a Paris that’s as filled with life as I’ve seen it since March was for sure a contributing factor. Five Friday Finds from France this week features the best “fancy” masks I’ve seen so far, clean beauty brand La Bouche Rouge, a re-visit to Bistrot de Paris, Olivier de Sercey cards and more!
Another (unexpected) week in Normandy has flown by and I can still hardly believe that it’s September. I love our time here as always but I’m anxious to get back to Paris and start experiencing fall there. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features two new books that I’m dying to add to my collection, a free Alliance Française course, a Tour de French Cuisine and more!
I’m happy to be back in Normandy to celebrate my two-year anniversary of living in France. I wrote a whole post about it, but in short the time has gone by very quickly. I’m especially appreciative for Normandy because without it my overall impression of 2020 would probably be very different. Today’s finds feature a favorite Paris Sunday morning coffee and croissant ritual, Stohrer, the oldest pâtisserie in Paris, a new favorite pâté and more.
