You may not know this, but I have a French girl inside me just trying to break free. So when I decided to start this blog, there was only one name for it.
I love Paris. Simple as that.
“Paris is always a good idea” Audrey Hepburn
I’m not entirely sure where this fascination stems from. I lived in Paris when I was little which would definitely have sown the seeds (and is responsible for my family’s insistence on peppering our normal vocabulary with the odd random French phrase).
I spent some more time in Paris in my twenties when, in between jobs, and trying to figure out what to do with my life (I’m still wondering….) I decided I’d rather figure it out in Paris than anywhere else and took myself off to learn French.
And then when I moved to London, it was just so close on the Eurostar, it was crazy not to go all the time!
I could spend hours wandering the streets, moving from cafe to cafe, whiling away hours eating and drinking and soaking up the city. I never tire of it. And I still get exited every time I see the Eiffel Tower, and call me tacky, but I LOVE it when it sparkles.
I love macaroons, and espressos, and croque monsieurs, and wine, and croissants, and baguette filled with strong cheese.
I take my style inspiration from the impossibly chic Parisians and love my leather jacket skinny jeans and Isabel Marant boots.
But most of all, I just love being in the city. There is something so special about it for me. Its one of few places in this world where I feel totally at home.
