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.
One of the best things I did after moving to Paris was enroll in French courses at Lutece Langue. I had such a great experience at the school – not only did my French improve greatly, but I also made some great friends. I’m thrilled to be partnering with Lutece Langue for a giveaway so that more people can discover this wonderful school and their methods of teaching French.
Thanks to my parents I learned the importance of investing in quality cookware, because it lasts forever if you take care of it. If you’re just beginning your collection, the Le Creuset Factory to Table Sale is a great place to start. You can find Le Creuset classics for up to 50% off, which is a pretty incredible deal. I wanted to share my Le Creuset Factory to Table Sale picks that you can shop through April 19th.
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.
