Hello! As promised, here are the details on my Paris apartment.

A View of the Arctic

Over the Arctic

Daylight is brief at the top of the world this time of year, but my flight home from Paris took me over the Polar Ice Cap and I managed to catch a view of moonrise and sunlight glinting off the pressure ridges in the ice. From 35,000 feet, they look like mountain ranges. Lovely as […]

Paris Papers & Ribbons


Most of the paper treasures — excluding the my spent Metro tickets – were found at the Porte de Vanves Flea Market. (Thank you for suggesting it!) It made for a lovely Sunday morning. Afterwards, I had a croque-monsieur and a hot chocolate at a nearby cafe… I only have one day left in Paris […]

Louvre & the Musée D’Orsay


My dears, here are a couple more photos I took today while wandering around Paris. These were taken with my iPhone. I took even more with my Polaroid camera (6 packets!) — which seemed to cause a lot of attention. I looked like such a tourist, apparently, that three people tried to scam me by […]

Paris Open-Air Market


Hello everyone!! I wanted to show you a few pictures of the open air market across the street this morning from my apartment! I bought a bunch of artichokes, which will be so delicious with butter… I’m heading out now to explore the Marais! There’s a little button & ribbon store there that I especially […]

My Little Paris Apartment


Hello, I’m finally settled in my Parisian apartment. Except for taking off into a massive thunderstorm in Los Angeles, the flight was smooth as glass. Over the Arctic Circle I raised the window shade and there were the stars glowing three times as brightly as they do over the California desert. After a taxi ride […]

For the love of diptych


Hello. Its Liss here from Daydream Lily filling in for Tina whilst she is on her way to beautiful Paris. I’ve always loved pairing two separate images together on my blog to tell a mini story. Its alot of fun to match the images looking for color tones, composition or elements that will go together. […]

Catching that Polar Express


Ok, my dears I’m off! I’m taking a plane that will fly up over the top of the world and down to Europe, landing in Paris. (Winter coat, silk thermals and boots are in tow)! I’ll probably be out of touch for a couple days while I’m getting settled. I’ll see you back here hopefully […]

It’s 2:05 am in LA

This is where I am: In this little lit room in an otherwise dark house. Too much to do to sleep. What time is it where you are?

Carry-on Bag


Hello loves! Thank you for all your wonderful advice on my ongoing packing efforts for Paris. I’m definitely taking silk thermals and lots of scarves!! I’ve put together a few items for my carry-on bag: The essential map book of Paris (even though I need a magnifying glass to read it); a well-loved pashmina; a […]

Help!! What should I pack for Paris?


I’m trying to pack and everything seems so wrong….I’ve been studying all of Joanna Goddard’s How to Dress Like a French Woman posts to prepare. But still I’m worried. I live in Los Angeles where people wear flip-flops all year long…My darling fashionista friends, what should I pack? (photo via we heart it)
