Day 1 in Paris



On my way to Paris or the airport I should say. I´ve always traveled in "comfortable" clothes. This time I wanted to see if I could travel in style and still feel relaxed. Well, this is how I´ll travel from now on. It was just so much fun ! :)


What makes a home beautiful ? Sometimes the smallest things, like seeing flowers the first thing when you walk in. At my aunts home just outside Paris, in Marly le Roi.


A display of pretty earrings.


Bureau next to her bed.


A statue and lots of flowers, even on the tiniest of balconies makes everything look so sumptuous !


French lunch !


A delicious salmon salad with pines, followed by an amazing sweet & sour ratatouille (!) from the southern part of France. Delicieux !


I´m off with mom to do some shopping ( since everything is on sale at the moment ... )


We went to St. Germain en Laye. This used to be the kings hunting castle ...



It even has a church... To build all this just as a place for your hunting party. No wounder there eventually was a revolution...


Ah, the smells of Paris. Passing by this cheese shop I just had to stop and savour the scent !


How do they do it ... ??



Live in a country filled with all this ...


And still be fashionably thin ... I know I shall go home with overweight both on my body and in my suitcases ! :)


The last scene of the day. This adorable puppy in a shop window.


Things I bought today. 1. White pants. Not Heyday ... but I think they still look good. 2. Transparent grey dotted blouse.


3. Raspberry red sweater with shimmering rose.


Bought three different ones as they were on sale and very cheap. I love wearing flowers !
