Fruit Cocktail


There’s nothing better than orange, grapefruit and pineapple juice with a splash of grenadine poured over ice to quench my thirst on these freakishly warm indian summer days we’re living through in Paris.

Pairing Up


During the various fashion weeks, while spending numerous hours viewing the collections on and, I usually find myself imagining pairing up certain designers that compliment one another.

Case in point, Jill Stuart and Michael Kors for understated elegance with a bit of pop. Mulberry and Erdem for a feminine, modern and quaint look. And finally, Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler for a downtown edgy and sophisticated look.

Tell me, which designers would you pair up?

Indian Summer in Paris


I had planned on staying in this weekend, just relaxing, watching movies and catching up on emails. But it seems that after all my complaining about the premature fall that descended on Paris in August, Summer has decided to show its face for one last glorious weekend which I plan on fully taking advantage of.

First up, food. There’s nothing better than getting up early and heading to your local café’s terrace for breakfast. The early morning sunlight gently wakes you while enjoying the still silent city.

Next, a light workout. I’ve been going to an indoor pool for a couple weeks and I love it! I don’t think there’s a better workout that doesn’t inflict serious pain. I can then lounge by the outdoor pool and treat myself to a timeout in the jacuzzi.  As the french say: “Après l’effort, le réconfort.” (after hard work or effort, you deserve to lean back and relax.)

A leisurely picnic on the quai by the Île Saint-Louis is always fun, followed by a stop at Berthillon, the best ice-cream known to man in this fair city.

A bit of culture with a quick stop by the Hussein Chalayan exhibit and off to drinks to where I started my day, on yet another Parisian terrace.

So tell me do you have anything planned out for this weekend?

On that note, a very Bon Weekend to you!
