I don’t have a coffee table, but once I do, “Paris: Portrait of a City” will be the first book that adorns it. Released in the beginning of the month, the large book (10 pounds!) compiles 500 photographs hand-selected by Jean Claude Gautrand that document the beautiful French city.
I’m also currently reading The Paris Wife and mustering the nerve to attempt macaron making again. I see a trend.
I downloaded the April issue of Vogue on my iPad and can’t get enough of the gorgeous spreads of Ritz Paris.
I find I savor a magazine more on a tablet. I also don’t have to worry about old issues piling up on my bookshelves…
I may follow NY Fashion Week the most closely, but my heart is in Paris. With the conclusion of Fall 2012 Fashion Weeks imminent, I have to say I’m loving the future of fashion. I’m a sucker for the feminine silhouettes and bold prints. Here are a few of my favorite looks from Paris…

My apologies to Milan Fashion Week! I forgot to recap you.
A nice surprise I got for Christmas was a brand new apron. Aprons are a necessity for a clumsy spiller like myself.
It’s vintage Paris newspapers. And as you know, I love Paris.
Here are a few options I found to keep you cute and clean in the kitchen.
Anthropologie | Cooking Complexities Apron
Mod Cloth | Haute Hibiscus Apron
Anthropologie | Fluttered Chambray Apron
Williams Sonoma | Adult Veggie Icon Apron
Loving Hanneli + Rag & Bone + Paris.
And their fall sale.
I would move to Paris in a heartbeat just to eat macarons and pain au chocolat everyday. In June, I traveled to Paris for the first time. It was even more beautiful than I had dreamed, and I suffer from creating high expectations.
One of my favorite days in Paris began with Breakfast at the Eiffel Tower. Sorry Audrey, but Tiffany’s cannot compare with croissants at the Parisian symbol. Look at the butter stains on that bag! You should have seen the napkin. I think it was translucent.
As much as I enjoy creating my favorite foods from scratch, I believe some things are better left to the professionals. From my time working at Williams-Sonoma, I managed to use my discount to purchase just about everything. One of my favorite finds is the chocolate croissants.
They arrive frozen. Rise overnight. Bake in 12 minutes.
And taste just like Paris. These make a great gift (for yourself too). Now if I could find an economical macaron alternative…
Any foods you think are better left to the professionals?
