Bits of my holiday in Paris last week. A short break between jobs. I stayed in the rive gauche for the first time and really enjoyed discovering le 6ème et le 7ème arrondisements.

Jardin du Luxembourg

I couldn’t visit Paris and not go to the Marais. It’s a beautiful neighborhood, plus all my favourite shops have a branch there (i.e., the holy trinity APC, Vanessa Bruno and Isabel Marant, as well as French favourites such as Repetto, Maje, Sandro and Claudie Pierlot…). I’ve also managed to finally drop by Merci – what a wonderful place, full of desirable goods and, best of all, philanthropic too.

It’s great to know that Paris is just a couple of hours away…
