Ambiancity Paris Picnics

At Prête-Moi Paris, romance is a staple for content, so I am glad I can finally share this fun video I did with Ambiancity to help them promote their romantic Paris picnic service. I met Sofiane of Ambiancity several years ago at a Tweetup event, and I have always been more than happy to promote him. He’s a hard working and creative gentleman and I just love the concept of his company. It’s so original : (Creating a sultry or romantic ambiance in your Paris hotel room!). So I only just LOVE the idea of bringing that same service outdoors (or indoors if the weather is bad).

Bébé Chéri’s Circus Nursery

With a lot of web searching, a little DIY and some luck, I was able to create my ideal Paris circus nursery for Bébé Chéri. Ever since my circus themed wedding, I can’t seem to get enough of this fun inspiration. And now that Bébé Chéri is just about here (due April 2nd, 2015), I have finally finished his bedroom, and I am quite happy with it. After a lot of searching, and many happy « finds » I was able to create the exact ambiance I was hoping for : circus/carnival theme for a kid without it being too « babyish » and without over doing it too much. (Did I over-do it? You’ll tell me if I over-did it right???). I have listed here where I found most of the nursery decor, just in case any of you readers are searching. I can’t tell you that it will all be available, but at least you can get some ideas and inspiration!

Paris Love Locks : Photo Essay

Paris Love Locks, To thine own self be true The Paris love-locks… I know, I know. We have all discussed, photographed and blogged the death out of these little objects… They have a turbulent existence it would seem… All these declarations of passion, desire and commitment have become cumbersome to the city of Paris, but no one wants to discard them.

In a recent article in the Marianne magazine (a leftist French publication) there was an article about these locks and the weight they pull (and place) in the very heart of the city of lights, the city of love.

Ringing in 2014

Cheers! Opening the bubbly for #NYE !!! With @ellacoquine and our chéris :-)Chéri and I had a fun intimate party for New Years Eve, at our place with Lisa of Ella Coquine with her chéri and our good friend Sophie. It was nice to just have a small group of good people gathered together to laugh, drink some bubbly, eat decadent delights and be silly until well past the pumpkin hour.

I served some of my remaining champagne from Mon Champagne, Hediard foie gras (splurge!), Lisa brought smoked salmon bites with a totally amazing dairy/soy free creamy dill dip, and amazing sweet marrons marinés from Sophie, and then of course one of my favorite foods, nêms!
