Purple dream

Hello,

This is one of those post where I don't want to bother you with too much text, I think these photos tell the story better than I do.
I must say that we discovered this wonderful place thanks to our clients and once I saw it I couldn't wait to do photos here. 

Pity we are not in Provence but we found something similar close to our home.

Paris city guide

Paris travel guide

Hello,

On my blog you can find a few travel posts but I never wrote a city guide. Why, you would ask me? Well since I never found so much inspiration or time to do it. Why should I write it about Paris, which  is already completely discovered and so touristical? Well we had the occasion to meet some locals who showed us some nice places. Lets discover Paris together! Vive La France...

WINING & DINING


This is one amazing place where we had even more amazing lunch. This restaurant has a great location, it is close to the Champs Elysées and just few steps from Le Pont Alexandre III. Le Mini Palais is perfect spot to to rest from long walk and to enjoy in marvelous food.
That day was around 32C but in the beautiful balcony of this place we felt faraway from the Parisian hustle and bustle and the heat.

This restaurant is also close to the Champs Elysées and it is easy to find it. Hmm where to start! This restaurant is operating since 1900. It is in amazing art-deco style. Food it typical french which means: get ready for gourmand dishes with lots of creme and butter!

                                                                       LA FERMETTE MARBEUF Paris



CAFÉ DES 2 MOULINS

This safe is located in Rue Lepic 15 on Montmartre. It got it's name from the two nearby windmills, the Moulin Rouge and the Moulin de la Galette. More photos from this amazing place you could find in my previous post. This cafe became famous after the romantic movie Amélie by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Although this place is quite touristic we had two amazing and pretty calm evenings there. The staff is really friendly and nice.
I recommend this place for quick lunch or a snack, but also I can say the creme brulée was so yummy.




STREETS

RUE CRÉMIEUX

When it comes to beautiful streets I really loved Rue de Crémieux. It's the most colorful street in Paris, it is a pedestrian zone with a private houses. When you come here you feel that you left Paris for a short time.  The Architectural style and all is so different and quiet. We went there on Sunday morning so we didn't have a lot of other people around us, except for a few cute cats which were sleeping on the windows. If you want to do some nice photos, this is the place for it.

THE VIEW

How to come to Paris and not to enjoy rooftops and beautiful view. Our hotel had great rooftop and we enjoyed this amazing view on Sacre Coeur and Eiffel tower almost every evening.

I also can recommend Le Perchoir cafe from where you have great view on Sacre Coeur.

GARDENS


JARDIN DU LUXEMBOURG

Even Paris is an metropolitan town it has a lot of gardens. I must admit that we didn't visit a lot of them, but we left that to other visit.
After long walk and crazy heat I was so happy when we came to Jardin du Luxembourg where we could have some good rest on the well known green chairs :). I really enjoyed this place.

And of course:
EIFFEL TOWER

We can say oh this is so cliché but how can you come to Paris and not to see the Eiffel tower. Yes that is just imposibble. Just wonder around and find a nice place for the photos.

Le Fabuleux destin de Ma Chérie D

Stop Staring Aspen dress review
Stop Staring Aspen dress


Hello,

One thing that you didn't know about me is that I m big movie lover. I see at least two movies per week but I easily forget the fabula of movie or the name. I have no idea why this happens. There is one exception, there is one movie I know everything about. I still can remember every scene, every dialog and even the soundtrack.


That movie is "Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain". The movie is a real romantic masterpiece. It is even difficult to put into words how much I love "Amélie". All about this movie is perfect from the innocent love story, Amelie's character to the soundtrack. 

Since our hotel was on Montmartre, the same neighbourhood where Amélie was filmed, I felt like I came into her world. 

Every day we would go to visit some known and wonderful places in Paris but every evening we would come back to "our neighbourhood" and we would spend hours wondering around small streets of Montmartre. 


When we came in front of her building and grocery shop I was just expecting when Collignon will appear to give some speach to poor Lucien. For me all was so realistic. I m just so in love with this movie.


We spent two wonderful evenings in Café des 2 Moulin, where Amélie works as a bar tender in the movie. You will read all about that in another blog post.

For this wondering in the streets of Montmartre I choose the Aspen dress by Stop Staring!. Since it was so hot that day I needed a light and open dress. Did you see the back of this dress? Oh that is my favourite part of it! I know it is maybe not the most beautiful combination but I wore it with my old comfy sandals because we walked all day.

This dress is a little bit to large for me but I didn't have time to bring it to atailor, but I must do it, so it will fit perfectly.

Could it be coincidence that a few 100 meters away from the Amélie superetta you can find a photomatic? Wonderful!

Sacre Coeur in silver

Hello,

There is no doubt If you follow me on instagram, you could see that I visited Paris. Since I came home last night and saw photos we did there I was so excited I couldn’t wait to write this post and share my stories with you.

Most of the time I write a blog post one month after I came back from a trip, but this time I wanted to share these photos as soon as posibble.

This shoot was special, at least for me. Why you ask me? As a scenery I chose the most amazing part of Paris and I m wearing my favourite dress.

One detail I forgot to mention is that we did this photoshoot very early in the morning, before 8 am, what you can see probably on my eyes. I wanted Sacre Coeur just for me and the only way to do
nice photos in big and touristic town as Paris is to wake up before the first tourists arrive, otherwise you will have hundreds of people in your background and that is not something what we want.
When we arrived near the Sacre Coeur, the gate was still even closed, and we needed to do all that stairs to the top by foot. That was a workout we didn't plan :). and this in a classy silver dress and high heels. 

I was in Paris for the first time three years ago and that was quite a short visit in which I basically just saw the Sacre Coeur and a small part of Montmartre but I fell in love immediately with the mood and charm of the old Paris. I was so happy to be back in the city of love. La vie en rose...
Like most of the girls I m crazy about carousels. I even have few at my home as decoration. 

My wish was always to do some photos on it. But in my opinion this one is even more special. It is in my favourite place, and I think it is also the most photographed one. 

I always wanted photos here, but I was ashamed to sit on it because it was always full of children. Although I have this blog for 6 years now, and we mostly do a photoshoot every week I still have this weird feeling when I m thinking people will stare at me.

But this morning I had finally carousel just for myself. Oh, I can’t describe you my feeling of happiness. 

I think that Stop Staring dress suits perfectly to this scenario. I must say that I never wore a silver dress before, and I was a little bit scared when I got it. But this Reno dress became my favorite evening dress. I can’t wait for a nice glamourous occasion to wear it.


Since we were for 6 days in Paris, you can expect still a lot of photos and stories from me. Stay tuned for more. À bientôt!
