Five Friday Finds from France: November 12th

rue du bac purple door five friday finds from france featuring the holiday collection at diptyque and a karl lagerfeld book

Between traveling back to Paris on Monday and Tuesday and having a holiday yesterday this week really flew by for me. It was nice having a little break after experiencing jet lag for the first time in a long time. Five Friday Finds from France features a special holiday collection at the Diptyque Boulevard Saint-Germain store, a Karl Lagerfeld book, an update on how to receive a French health pass and more.

Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows Book

Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows is the newest title on my list of books to add to my constantly growing collection. This oversize book documents the larger than life Lagerfeld’s work for Chanel over ten years. People looked forward to the incredible sets season after season, maybe as much as the clothes.

Holiday at the Diptyque Boulevard Saint-Germain Store

A few years ago there was a Diptyque Bazar pop-up store in Paris filled unique items, including holiday decorations, glassware, throws and more. This year the Boulevard Saint-Germain boutique will also stock some of those same objects. Romain gave my mom one of the handmade nutcrackers to add to her collection. Each item is handmade and would make a fabulous gift. You can browse the catalogue here.

Live Music at Les Antiquaires

There’s just something about live music at a café in Paris that makes you feel like you’re traveling through time. One of my very favorite cafés in Paris, Les Antiquaires, has piano soirées every Wednesday from 7pm until about 10pm. Romain and I went for dinner on Wednesday and had a fabulous time, but you could also stop by either before or after dinner for a drink too!

Paris Holiday Decor

Since I got back from Dallas I’ve been so excited to see a lot of holiday decorations appearing at restaurants and cafés, in store windows, and along the streets. I can’t believe this festive season is finally really upon us, but I’m so excited about it! I asked on Instagram if it was too early to post the decorations and every single person replied no, so I’m going with it!

French Health Pass Update

The rules for getting a French Health Pass if you were vaccinated abroad have changed again. Now there is no online or email application, but rather you get your vaccine card converted to a QR code at a pharmacy in France for 36€. You can find the full instructions here.
