If you’re ever thinking about visiting Paris in October…do it! The weather is generally mild, the leaves are starting to change and the fall light is incredible. The first half of October was absolutely crazy, crazy busy (you can read about why here), so we were thrilled to head to the US for a couple weeks of relaxing at the end of the month. The October 2023 recap features exactly where I ate and drank, shopped, and what I did during the month in Paris.
It’s officially, officially the most wonderful time of the year. I love everything about the holiday season and look forward to it all year, which I know is irrational. I love the decorations, the music, the foods and the parties, but more than anything I love the moments spent with loved ones. I’ve been especially looking forward to this year’s celebrations thanks to two very exciting personal updates that I’m sharing exclusively with members.
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!
September is always one of my favorite months in Paris. This year I was lucky to have lots of family and friends visiting which meant the month was filled with lots of favorite restaurants, shopping, and even a quick getaway to the Côte d’Azur. Read on to discover exactly where I ate and drank, shopped, and what I did in the September 2023 recap, including several of my favorite places to shop for vintage and antique items in Paris.
I had the unique opportunity to visit the restoration atelier at the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Paris. Normally, these special areas aren’t open to the public. It was an incredible experience to learn more about Saint Laurent and his work.
