Every little girl dreams of being a princess. And every woman still has a little girl inside her. What does this equal? Girl still wants to be a princess. Living in a country where castles are sprinkled all over the landscape, there’s a lot of room left to dream and imagine life in another time. … Continue reading

Happiness comes in the form of sunshine

Bahja. The joyous one. After a cold winter and a rough few weeks, girl took a much needed vacation. A normal Friday evening consoling a sad girlfriend took a turn for the adventurous when girl awoke Saturday morning realizing she had bought a plane ticket to Marrakesh.

On ne naît pas parisien…on le devient

It’s nothing new that women around the world are obsessed with the allure of the Parisian woman. We’re infatuated with their never-ending style, grace and ability to ride a bike on cobblestone in heels with a cigarette in hand. Okay, maybe that’s just girl. So when someone says, “I thought you were French,” girl’s heart … Continue reading

Girl meets…Brussels

As soon as girl’s British bestie followed her career from Paris to Brussels, girl knew that a little trip to Belgium was in order.

What happens when you visit the doc in France

After days of garlic, ginger and old family remedies, girl finally gave in to peer pressure (and weird looks from strangers) and went to the doctor. What she was met with is exactly what she was afraid of – a bag full of unpronounceable medicine and not a clear answer to what is precisely wrong … Continue reading

It’s that time again! Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! As tradition has it, the third Thursday of November marks the end of the wine harvest and a celebration of what is to come. Starting after the end of WWII, the race to bring the wine to Paris has created a highly profitable and festive way … Continue reading

I spy…a pharmacy! And another!

As Americans, November signals the beginning of the holiday season, Thanksgiving, mid-terms and pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks. As Parisians in training, November has a new significance: the beginning of relentless cold symptoms. Back in California neither of us got sick often – perhaps one killer 24 hour bug and we were done for the … Continue reading
