24 Hours in Paris – Prête-Moi Paris Style!

Sometimes friends will email me and ask for advice on what to do with a long layover in Paris. Or better yet, some friends will deliberately schedule a long layover, just to get a « Paris fix » (it’s like a drug you know)! If it were me, I would certainly schedule a long layover, but I live here so I am lucky to have Paris in my life very day…even the bad days.

Merci to Lucy Miller for the fabulous graphic!

But I am a big fan of fun 24 hour layovers in order to get a glimpse of a city or see a friend, so I have teamed up with CitizenM hotel to bring you the best of Prête-Moi Paris in a 24 hour plan of indulgence in all things Parisian. CitizenM_collage

Trying On Some Trends

Trying On Some Trends
Fashion comes and goes, and then comes back again… I tend to stick to basics. And then get an occasional fun, frilly or funky item. ISn’t that what they told us about how French women dress? But I thought it would be fun to test out a few trends, and what better what better way to do so than on my Polyvore board. Continue reading Trying On Some Trends

Vacation Inspiration – Summer Style


Paris Summer Style

August, the month of the « Aoûtiens » as the French call it. Meaning, those who take their vacation holiday in August. The « Juilletistes » are the ones who head out of town in July. I am an « Aoûtienne ». I like having my vacation end at the end of the final Summer month. (I consider September a Fall month even though Summer usually extends itself well into it). And so as I go from Parisian to vacationer… it seems only natural to express that metamorphosis in style. I get to shed the city clothes for a more relaxed wardrobe in which I intend to shed off the fatigue accumulated this past year. But, try as you might, you can’t remove the city girl style completely, even when on a Summer escapade with Chéri. Continue reading Vacation Inspiration – Summer Style

Style Story – The Sweet Life in Paris


Olivia and Olivier explore the tasty treats of Paris.

A chic Parisian girl and her puppy seek out some of the sweet stuff in the City of Lights while strolling around the two city islands in the middle of the Seine. They go from ice cream, to cookies, and stop to smell the roses, and enjoy a sweet café crème before indulging in some Ladurée macarons!

This project has been a while in the making… And I am finally thrilled to show you the result!

So how did this all come about you ask? Well, I’ll tell you! I had offered a prize to be raffled off for charity among a slew of other prizes, at the Paris Cupcake Camp way back last Fall. It was originally merely to be just a small fashion shoot with me and my camera. But it became a big beautiful collaborative effort between several people, and a puppy! It was such fun to come up with the shoot concept, plan it out, scout locations, bring in the talent and create something fun, frivolous and fabulously Parisian with all of these wonderful souls who helped me create this little video.

AND WITHOUT FURTHER ADO… Continue reading Style Story – The Sweet Life in Paris

Smells like home for the holidays

I seem to be on a scent quest lately with all these perfume posts. I don’t know why, but I hope you all like it. I promise diversity will return to my blog right after the holidays!

I was thinking about all of the home scents that I love this time of year, and obviously my first idea is to share them all with you here. Perhaps it is because yesterday as I was walking up the steps of the building I could smell the fir tree that our building’s guardian put up in the entry hall, perhaps it is the delight of coming home to an apartment that smells lovely and the rapidly approaching Christmas day… But I am avid about holiday scents this time of year. I have four, yes four, diffusers just in the living room! These also are great gift idea for those of you who are not sure what to get people at the last minute! 😉

Here are my favorites, not in any particular order :

Fir Balsam by Geodesis. It smells like Christmas trees and warm Christmas cheer! They sell it in candle and spray form as well.


I am also crazy about L’Occitane’s Rameau d’Hiver scent. It too smells just like a winter Christmas tree. It brings out the nostalgia and the childhood memories.
