Je ne veux pas travailler…

It’s easy to fall in love with Paris in the spring. The flowers start to bloom, the sky shows its blue side for the first time in what feels like forever, sidewalk cafes are full of people having an afternoon apéro and Sundays can be spent lazing around the Tuileries. Or so you think…then the … 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

Releasing the inner rockstar

Girl is no stranger to embarrassing herself in public. Proof can be found in years of Halloween costumes, falling down (or up) just about everywhere and an uncontrollable need to Macarena every time the song comes on. And….in the presence of karaoke. For most people, karaoke means excessive drinking and acting like an idiot. For … Continue reading

We heart bulk bins

You may be asking yourself why Whole Foods is a blog topic (or maybe you know us and therefore don’t think this is anything out of the ordinary), but as truth would have it, this trip to Whole Foods was ranked in the top five for best moments of Visit Home 2011 for girl, up … Continue reading

Big girl purchase: luggage

Sitting in a room that looks like it was hit by today’s wind storms, girl is desperately searching for something else to think about other than how on earth she is going to pack everything into one suitcase.

With suitcases in the … Continue reading

L’amour est aveugle – reality tv french style

And there’s always fun times to be had with the gals – nothing like a girl’s night, right!? But there’s something so nice about staying in, eating chocolate and … Continue reading

Redefining dégustation – how much can you taste?

It’s back! Last year we were invited to a little wine expo in Paris. What we didn’t know was that that little expo was actually a treasure chest of wine all for us to try! Okay, well not all…but we sure did carve our way through it! The salon des vins des vingerons indépendants is … Continue reading

Happy Turkey Day!

Okay, so our Thanksgiving isn’t quite as sexy as Marilyn’s (nor is it that easy to find a turkey in Paris), but it will be full of thanks! We’re thankful that we’ve managed to not kill each other after one year of living in a tiny studio, we’re thankful to this crazy city for teaching … Continue reading

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
