If you’ve read my blog for a while you might recognize some of the items from this list of gifts for Francophiles available online. I pick things that I really love and believe in and I know will be cherished year after year. The list is compiled throughout the year and I hope it provides a little shopping inspiration either for yourself or for a loved one!
The Left Bank needed JK Place Paris. From the moment you walk into the hotel it feels different – like you’re truly walking into a private home. And in some ways, you are. There’s so much to love from the immaculate decor and attentive service to the perfect location and well-appointed rooms.
It was another short week in France which I always appreciate. We are spending the long weekend in Normandy which is always such a treat, but especially so when the weather is uncharacteristically warm and sunny for mid-November. It’s such a wonderful place to escape to and I’ll share exactly what we did with members soon. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 46 include a feature on Didier Ludot, a look inside a château used in ‘Lupin,’ and a list of great Airbnbs in France. Enjoy!
It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is almost upon us. A few years ago I made a list of French Advent Calendars available online and have started updating it for 2022. Many of these calendars will sell out, so if you see something you like don’t hesitate to order it! When in Paris, two of my favorite places to shop for Advent Calendars are La Grande Épicerie and Galeries Lafayette Gourmet.
Every month tends to feel like it flies by, but October especially so. Romain and I returned from our honeymoon at the end of September feeling completely refreshed and recharged and immediately shifted our gears back to real-life mode.
