Last week as a part of my OuiPlease Instagram takeover I shared my idea of a perfect day on the Left Bank. This day was shopping-centric and I included a mini Rue du Bac guide with some of my favorite shops and what to buy. I wanted to focus on this part of Paris because I think it’s a great area to consider staying in whether at a hotel or in an apartment to get a taste of real life in Paris.
I had a hard time eliminating this week…so Weekend Links Week 14 features 23 articles about France! Of these articles, favorites include a 3-Star Michelin chef’s tips for making steak tartare at home, a French photographer’s comparison between a fake Paris in China and the real city, France’s most stunning road trips, a look inside Paris’ most-anticipated new garden, and details about the upcoming Roland Garros tournament.
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.
