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

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. To be honnête, since coming to Paris, Brussels had never been a top-spot on the checklist but with the sweet smell of a real Belgium waffle calling her name, she booked … Continue reading

We heart bulk bins

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

Sayonara summer!

The cold season has officially started. Okay, so this photo is from last year, but we’re sure this is just around the corner. Coming from the Bay Area, we never really had real seasons – both summer and winter can be quite moderate – but in Paris, the seasons change faster than Speedy Gonzales. We … Continue reading

Jam packed…in a good way

Girl loves to have too much to do. Boy thinks it’s a bit masochistic of her and her family worries that she loads on more stress than healthy. What does girl think? What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger. Plus, this is France…there’s always time for a little vacation! So, we’ve piled up a … Continue reading
