Spring has fully sprung in Paris, and I have to admit I’ve already been daydreaming about summer. There’s a possibility outdoor dining could reopen in mid-May to early June and I’m crossing my fingers in a major way. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a fabulous new book on the iconic French Riviera Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, a way you can help Treize au Jardin expand their terrasse, a new-to-me Paris boulangerie and more.
It’s been a crazy week weather-wise in Paris. We went from picture-perfect spring weather over the weekend to snow on Tuesday. Multiple times. It was very bizarre, but it’s warming back up again. I can’t wait to see even more blossoms emerging and leaves returning to trees. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features the new Provence Glory book, a cute take on a French summer straw tote that I’ve never seen before, an unexpected picnic-perfect cheese board and more.
The “limited lockdown” from last week quickly escalated into the third national lockdown that will last for at least another month. It’s a tough pill to swallow, again, but hopefully it’ll be the last time. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features the Vincent Darré x Monoprix collaboration, a Parisian pâtisserie to add to your list, a dreamy Historic Houses of Paris book and more.
The first week of our newest “limited-lockdown” in France went by surprisingly fast. In all honesty it doesn’t make much sense to me, but I’m going with it. Today is my dad’s birthday so I’m looking forward to toasting him from afar with a his favorite drink, a margarita. Five Friday Finds from France includes yet another book that I’m dreaming about – Riviera Cocktail, a spring pasta recipe, Le Creuset’s perfect herb planters and more!
Happy Friday from France. The talk of this week was largely about the impending reconfinement in France. As it turns out, we are going to be under a version of lockdown in Paris (and other regions of France, although not nationally) for the next four weeks. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France is all food and market related. It features my new go-to French Apple Cider Vinegar, Dior Book Tote inspired Rive Gauche bags, the new Let’s Eat France book and more!
