Prête-Moi Paris

An American in Paris, blogging about Paris, the expat life, luxury, fashion, culture, people, places and pieces of the city of lights.

French Breakfast 

The best kind of breakfast out in Paris, according to me anyway, is not the overpriced, complicated, you-need-to-reserve-a-table brunch kind. Non, it’s the roll-out-of-bed and head to your favorite café kind where you can have a café crème, à fresh croissant and a « tartine » (baguette with butter and jam). Simple. Delicious. What more do you need in the morning (in… Read more →

Le Salon Du Quartier- Hair Salon 

I walked by this darling address, Le Salon De Quartier, the day it opened in March 2017. It immediately drew me over to peer through its vast windows. So light, airy yet cozy inside.  I am not all that loyal to any particular hair salon. I know some women are but I get me hair cut so seldom that it doesn’t… Read more →

PARIS IS A PARTY!

Coming from the United States, I have an ingrained expectation of finding all my festive party-throwing needs in one big party supply store. Alas, I have spent the last 15 years strugling to find what I want, ordering from over-seas, hand-making most of it (aka my wedding where I hand made EVERYTHING) and getting party supplies in Paris wherever I can find them;… Read more →

A Parisian Ski Lodge with a View

 Article by Frank Cierpial  Café de L’Homme is one of those cafes in Paris that you cannot miss. I have a rubric on which I rate establishments for dining out. I call it  the “Dining Out Trinity” and it is based on a line from my idol: The great Carrie Bradshaw. She said that in New York, you either looking for… Read more →

H.A.N.D.  Cafe Paris 

This past Fall, I did a fun little photo shoot with Le Bijou Parisien for my article on their trendy Parisian fashion and accessories. And while on that shoot we happened upon a darling café that I have been meaning to blog about, Hand café. H.A.N.D. stands for Have A Nice Day, which you most certainly will if you have a meal here!  Mathieu… Read more →

I Work in Luxury Sales

I work in luxury sales.  It sounds gorgeous doesn’t it? “luxury sales”. In truth, I’m a salesperson in a boutique for a luxury brand, and even though there is often a sort of pejorative regard for such an employment, I love my job and the company I work for. Many people who find out what I do and where,  often… Read more →
