So I’ve been quiet, very quiet. I haven’t blogged since late January but I’m not breaking my resolution to blog more often. Last month I was in Paris. Here’s what I saw and did:
Paris is sort of a big deal to me. I love the uniformity and purity of the turn of the century architecture. I adore the little winding backstreets. The food is good, the wine is better.
Day 1 – Mont Martre
Day 2 – Le Marais and Notre Dame
Dinner – Bearnaise salad at Le Relais Gascon in Abbesses – Mont Martre. Readers be aware, this is not your typical salad, consisting of salad leaves, lardons, garlic potatoes and goats cheese on baguette, this is one hearty dish that will warm you up during the cold months. Prices range from 12 – 15 Euros a dish. My all time favorite Parisien restaurant.
Day 3 – Breakfast in Mont Martre before boarding the Eurostar back to London
My little treat –
Perfume would have to be my guilty pleasure. I’ll eventually get round to writing a post on my favorite scents. I couldn’t leave Paris empty handed so I popped into Fragonard in Le Marais and bought myself the Vetivier Eau de Toilette. Fragonard primarily produce floral and natural scents. Vetivier has a very zesty and clean smell. I used to stick to musky tones but now I am really into zest, especially with the Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin and now this little beauty.
Next stop… Cairo…
