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!
Fall is here (at least for now) and I’m getting back into my normal routine in Paris for the first time in what feels like since March. One of my absolute favorite parts of this new season is going to the first fall edition of Marché Raspail.
I’m less than 24 hours into my September in Paris but I’m already so excited for this month. And for the first time in 2020 my excitement isn’t accompanied by nerves. I can’t wait for my fourth fall in Paris.
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.
