Book Boutique for Bébé Chéri in the Batignolles 

I love buy things for Bébé Chéri. Clothes, food gifts,  toys, and I always feel happy when I  have purchased something for him. But especially when I buy him books. The best thing you can do for your child is to teach them the value of reading. Well,  he doesn’t read yet, but I want to instill in him a… Read more →

Fall Colors in Paris – Les Batignolles

Chéri and I took some time on a Sunday in early November to just have a lovely lazy stroll around the park down the street from us (two actually), the new Martin Luther King park and the Square des Batignolles. It was somewhat of a Fall Colors stroll, since that is what we did in New England where I grew… Read more →

French Classics at Le Tout Petit Bistrot

We went from American classics to French fare with Mama Chérie in our restaurant choices while she was visiting us after Bébé Chéri was born. This little bistrot on a darling little pedestrian path next tot he church in the Batignolles quarter has been beckoning to me ever since we moved to this neighborhood. But Chéri and I went and… Read more →

Spring always arrives Early in Paris

Spring does always arrive early in Paris, it seems. It disapears for a while in May or June, but usually in March or April in Paris we get a a burst of sun and brightness and all the trees go, « aaaaaaahhh! » and the Parisians flock to the café terraces and Paris’ gardens where cherry blossoms beckon us to take off… Read more →

A few (almost) secret gardens in Paris

So the month of July in Paris was a-wash with warmpth and sunlight, but sadly I didn’t get to go out and enjoy it that much since I was dealing with this issue. And as soon as that cast came off, the weather went sour. August has been a total disappointment weather-wise. But the very occasional day of cooperative weather,… Read more →

Springtime in Paris

I literally wrote « Sprintemps » in the title before correcting it to « Springtime ». I think my franglais has gotten a little out of hand. But that isn’t the subject of this post. Or is it…. If you listen closely in the beginning of Springtime in Paris, you can almost hear a collective sigh.. Aaaaaaaaahhhh! The light comes back and we all… Read more →

Treize Au Jardin

Or as I like to call it, The New Treize! Laurel and Kajsa, the dynamic duo of 13 A Baker’s Dozen, have done it again : created another magical address. This is the rebirth of a true labor of love. They said goodbye in March (2018) to their darling cozy spot we knew and loved on rue des Saints Pères,… Read more →

My 8 Beauty Secrets from France

I posted some time ago a list of the top most beautiful French women (according to me), and I think it’s time to talk about French beauty again. It’s a subject in haute pursuit (‘scuse the franglais punned phrase) for many of us non-French women for some time now, probably a couple of centuries, I’d say. It’s true though, so many… Read more →

Vintage Gallery – Americana in Paris

  Jukeboxes, slot machines, gum ball machines, gasoline pumps, Limoge porcelain statuetes of the Statue of Liberty made for the bicentennial of the USA in 1976, traffic lights, telephones, Coca Cola machines… these are just a few of the tings you’ll find at Vintage Gallery. Patrick Guérin has a fantastic place on the boulevard Pereire in the 17th. An incredible… Read more →

Havre d’automne – Fall haven

The Parc des Batignolles, in the 17th is a haven from the hustle and bustle that one often finds in that arrondissement. The other large garden in the 17th, Parc Monceau, can often be over crowded and the element of relaxation that one usually attaches to the city parcs just seems to vanish (like in the Jardin Luxembourg for example… Read more →
