Le Cadeau Français – Gift Boxes for Paris Lovers!

Every day as I arrive to work I pass down a small street in the 8th arrondissement in central Paris and I pass by little restaurants and shops and offices. And it’s also where I discovered a new Parisian product that appeals so much to me I felt it absolutely necessary to share it with my readers on the blog… Read more →
