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

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.

Many people who find out what I do and where,  often… Read more →

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 →

ZipJet – Laundry delivered in Paris

Laundry, that bane of my existence. That chore that you always have to accomplish but is never finished. Bébé Chéri, the delight of my life, insists on « helping » me…what a little dear. Usually he unfolds whatever I have folded, but he does help carry the laundry to the machine, and quite proudly too. I made up a little song for… Read more →
