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

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 →

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.

My friend Holly, from the expat group I am a member of, who has been in Paris for just a short year suggested a place to… Read more →

Do you tweet like I do ? : Making sense of the social media circus

Sometimes, I feel like taking a BIIIIIIIIG LOOOOOOONG break from social media… That ever present need to constantly tell the world what is happening in our little lives, tugs at our fingertips without fail whenever something worth sharing is happening. Sometimes I want to stop. Sometimes. And then, I remember that I do social media mostly to promote and aliment… Read more →

Le Fantome – Cocktails, Tacos and Video Games

In the trendy Tenth arrondissement, there is a great place for a whole variety of Parisians or visitors to enjoy from 11am to 2 in the morning : those of us over the age of 30 who remember what the original Pacman was like, the kids of those same thirty-somethings who will be fascinated by all there is to distract… Read more →
