I headed back to Paris for a fleeting visit and a quick press trip this week. Lots of new business/restaurants/coffee shops opening up, and managed to squeeze in quite a few of my old favourites, too. Here are some of my Instagram snapshots: 1. Parisian stationery heaven. 2. [...]

Hunting for (vintage) bargains

In Paris, there’s a real art to vintage shopping. And I’ve found that practice makes perfect! When I first moved to Paris, I was on a tight budget, so I did almost all my shopping at vintage shops. Today I still try to do most of my clothes shopping at vintage markets and boutiques, both to keep the price down, and also to try to add some unique pieces to my wardrobe. I’ve always been a fan of buying vintage clothes, and combining them with high-street pieces as well as the occasional extra-special purchase.

Omnivore World Tour – Paris Food Festival 2013

This month, top of my ‘things to try and squeeze into my Paris to-do list’ was the Omnivore Paris Food Festival. I’ve been going to it for the past couple of years but was lucky enough to get a freebie this year (thanks Lisa Kajita!), and it was a real treat to be surrounded by other people cooking and demonstrating their culinary ideas – nice to step away from my own recipe testing for a few hours!

Terroirs d’avenir

I’m a strong advocate that great things can happen in small spaces.So when one of the smallest streets in Paris welcomed a fabulous new produce retailer, I knew big things were sure to ensue. Terroirs d’avenir is tucked away on the little Rue du Nil (home to Gregory Marchand’s popular bars à vins and restaurant, Frenchie) in the heart of Paris’ 2nd arrondissement.
