This week flew by grâce à the cooler temperatures in Paris. Being outside was a pleasure again and not immediately dripping in sweat was of course an added bonus. I’m soaking up the last of these extra quiet summer days before la rentrée (and before heading back to Normandy next week…I can’t wait!). This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a revisit to El Nopal in Paris, my very first French haircut at Leonor Greyl, the upcoming Dîner Cousu-Main in the garden at Christian Dior’s childhood home in Normandy and more.
This week went by at a snail’s pace because of the heatwave that lingered over Paris from last Friday until yesterday. I spent way more time inside my apartment than I normally do, and it made me so appreciative that I wasn’t in Paris during the confinement period. That would’ve been a real challenge. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features Louis Vuitton’s Reims City Guide, a Ladurée rose ice cream discovery, a perfect refreshing summer drink called the Hugo Spritz, and more!
It’s a very steamy day in Paris today and looks like it will be through mid-week next week. I’ve been lucky enough to dodge all 100+ degree days so far, so I guess it’s time to experience a taste of the canicule. Some of my favorite finds from this week came from the Jullouville marché in Normandy, but I must say the crown jewel this week was the summer nocturne in the Musée Rodin garden.
