HAPPY MONDAY

16/03/14 - 08:43

Paris October 2014
This weekend was absolutely fabulous for no reason, and at the same time that was really the reason. Makes perfect sense? We spent hours of hours out in the sun on several terraces, having our first Aperol Spritz and rosé for the season, talking about everything and nothing at the same time, watching people coming and going, having the brasserie owners kindly asking us to pay the check before it gets too late, as they wanted to go home to their families… The fact that spring is knocking on the door is simply making me too happy. All of a sudden, I just want to plan my next terrace trip! How was your weekend?

VALENTINE’S DAY

Valentines Day 2016

Two weekends ago it was Valentine’s, the heart day. This we celebrated with a dinner at the legendary reopened Les Bains Douches in the 2nd arrondissement. Great quality and service. I did however prefer the bar upstair to downstairs – good thing though is that the pool is back and I dare you next time! Oh, and just before we hit the restaurant my boyfriend surprised me with some soft gifts. One of them was this cosy knit from Paul & Joe that I absolutely adore. Last year he gave me something yellow too, do you remember? Wondering if this is the new black?

LUNCH AT RALPH’S

16/02/14 - 10:02

Paris Feb 2016

When in Paris and the rain is tumbling down there’s only a few things you really like to do and that’s to run or hide, right? Unless it’s summer, warm and frankly quite cosy and romantic to get cough in the rain. Besides from that, watching a movie or cuddling up in front of an open fire would be kind of nice preferred options. Regardless what it is you prefer doing when the sky is covered in up tears there’s times you actually still want to get outside and do something, simply cause you’re full of energy. That’s kind of how we felt this weekend, so instead of staying in we though we check out Ralph’s restaurant in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. In this American corner of Boulevard Saint Germain, we were met by a very cosy and warm interior that made us feel just like being inside of a hunter cottage in North America. On the menu were American hunter salads, club sandwiches and burgers – all that you could ask for really a day like this! To then finish up with apple crumble, vanilla ice cream and caramelized popcorn, didn’t make our lives any easier. Shortly said, if you need a place to hide yourself from the rain this is the place!

PARIS FOOD GUIDE

16/01/28 - 12:16

Paris Jan 2016
I attempt to do this more often, to share my sweet spots around the world and make your trip more fun and less typical touristic (even though some of the klichés you actually have to do). Mostly my ideas just ends up being as saved ‘unposted’ blog notes… But not today! Lately there have been many new restaurants popping up in Paris and I thought we have look at my three favorites at the moment.

OBER MAMMA 107 Boulevard Richard Lenoir or 133 Rue du Fb St Antoine, 75011 Paris
There are two of them, one in Oberkampf and one in Bastille, but still both in the 11th arrondissement. One of the few places you actually can’t make a reservation so if you’re looking to get seated normal time you need to be there 15 minutes before they open at 6pm as there will be a line. Ones inside they’ll take your name and you wait in the bar area where free unlimited cheese and ham platter is served until you get your table. Choose from yummy Italian pre-drinks and when they open up the kitchen by 7pm, get some burrata cheese and meatballs.

BUVETTE 28 Rue Henry Monnier, 75009 Paris
If you been to West Village the last year you may have already came across this offshoot restaurant before, as it’s the older brother. Luckily, there’s one now in the 9th arrondissement on the same block as Hôtel Amour. Same thing here small, cozy and no reservations. Sharing is caring, right? Well, you got to be fast when dining here, as they’re so delicious and they seem to disappear as soon as you turn around. Get Spanish and French small dishes to share. And don’t forget the buttery high calorie bomb of chocolate in the end.

LA MARÉE JEANNE 3 Rue Mandar, 75002 Paris
New fantastic seafood restaurant in the 2nd arrondissement. You can book a table if you like but I highly suggest you try the bar. Not only does it feel more casual and genuine but you can see the kitchen too. I don’t know why but I just love that. Trying to remember what I did have last time… I know to go for three plates and remembering it being so good!

Some dark-toned plasters, tights, a few foundations: the provisions the fashion world makes for people of color still have a long way to go.

Today is not an ordinary day, its’ Air Max Day. When Nike first released the Air Max 1 on March 26, 1987, it’s safe to say they released a revolution. Although Nike had been placing air cushioning into its shoes since 1979, it wasn’t until 1987 that it made this technology large and visible enough for […]

The road trip – fictional or otherwise – has fuelled the imagination of some of the most influential figures in literature, film, art and music. Consider Tom Wolfe’s epic 1966 novel The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, which details a psychedelic, acid-enhanced journey through America on a customised school bus; or more recently, Alexander Payne’s dark comedy Nebraska (2013), […]
