Marais Architectural Details

I’ve stayed close to home in recent weeks and rediscovered the architectural wonders of the Marais. I recently had to do a slide show and lecture about the Marais for an organization, so I took new photos of familiar buildings, casting my eye again but in a refreshed way. In case you didn’t know, a large swath of the Marais has former palaces and mansions that were built in the late 1500s to almost 1700. These gorgeous buildings, called hotels, are made of limestone and have ornate details su...

Christmas in Paris 2020- Rue Saint Honoré & Saint Germain-Part 1

Christmas in Paris 2020-Printemps

Today I am featuring photos of the holiday windows at Printemps for the Christmas in Paris 2020 series.   The theme of the windows this season is “Let’s share Christmas”. Illustrator Beax has created fun and imaginative windows of nine families celebrating Christmas, in their own individual way. Scenes in the four windows with animations include Christmas at a chalet, on ski slopes, and on the Paris rooftops. Just a reminder, if you still would like to order holiday gifts of either Eye...

Christmas in Paris 2020- Galeries Lafayette

Here’s the first of  my annual blog posts about the Christmas decorations and shop windows in Paris.   Instead of saving the best for last, I’m giving you the best, first. Hands down  Galeries Lafayette has the best Christmas windows this year . They are colorful, delightful, fun, enchanting, and whimsical.   The theme for 2020 is the Christmas Voyage led by Céleste, a young intrepid explorer who finds a vintage airplane on the roof of Galeries Lafayette that belongs to the daring ...

Trip to Nimes

In the beginning of October, I took a last minute trip to Nimes because another trip I was supposed to go on was cancelled. The train fare was only 40€ round trip and the ride was an easy three-hour voyage from the Gare de Lyon station, which is two metro stops from my apartment.   Nimes was a significant city of the Roman Empire dating back from 28 B.C. with a population of close to 55,000 people. A major number of  structures from the Roman reign in France are still standing including an...

Jacqueline Ngo MPII and Little Africa

Jacqueline Ngo MPII is on a mission which I greatly admire.   Her company, Little Africa, is dedicated to all things African in Paris. In the last five years Jacqueline has tirelessly been promoting the rich culture of the African community in Paris. She has accomplished this in numerous ways, first by creating a Little Africa tour, which is called La Goutte D’or in the 18th arrondissement just below Montmartre, and she shares the vivacious, colorful, neighborhood, that very few tourists ...

Chateau Clarisse Wine

When I stayed at Villa Clarisse in Ile de Ré in September, I received a complimentary bottle of Chateau Clarisse wine. I brought it home with me and shared it with Vincent. We both really liked the taste of it and longed for more.   Last month I received an email from Chateau Clarisse announcing that James Suckling, a major wine critic and wine connoisseur, had reviewed a few vintages of Chateau Clarisse and gave them high marks, rating them from 90 to 94 out of a hundred.   The revie...

Guest Post: Marilyn Miller

Each of us has a story to tell. I have so appreciated and enjoyed each story being shared. Here is my story.     As a young girl, I dreamt of being a fashion designer. I would design clothes from scraps of cloth for my dolls. My family didn’t understand that desire to be a creative soul, so after a while, my dream left me, but it must have really just been tucked away in a corner of my heart.     As I was approaching forty years old I began evaluating...

A Holiday Proposal

It’s holiday gift time, and what could be better than the gift of Paris. Most people were denied the joy of visiting Paris this year with the travel restrictions, so what better way to remind you or people on your gift list of the city than a great photo.  It’s been a challenging year to say the least for everyone I know. Personally, it’s been challenging because I’ve seen my tour business, from which I make most of my income from, dwindle to practically zero since March. A good thing to c...

Guest Post: Ann of Avondale

I met Corey through Victoria Magazine.   I was interested in the monthly feature “Business of Bliss” and how women do what they love as a business. Long ago there was a chat forum on iVillage for Business of Bliss and I was a Moderator to keep the conversation flowing and interesting. During that time, I came across an article on Corey and her life in France. I read all her posts and have continued to follow her blog. Hopefully, one day we will meet in person. My real career is in Finance. I h...

LA gets a big SAAS exit as Fastly nabs the Culver City-based Signal Sciences for $775M

Los Angeles was always more than a one industry town, even when it comes to technology startups, but media and entertainment (and social networking) were always the big draws in tinseltown. Now the city’s enterprise tech scene can claim a really big winner with Signal Sciences, the security monitoring and management company that is getting bought by Fastly, a provider of content delivery networking services, for $775 million. “Our team couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to join Fastl...

Apple says its App Store facilitated $519B in commerce in 2019

Amid increasing antitrust scrutiny by U.S. regulators, Apple announced an update on its App Store ecosystem. While the company normally shares some App Store metrics during its WWDC keynote, it’s today detailing the results of a new study that claims the App Store ecosystem facilitated half a trillion ($519 billion) in billings and sales globally in 2019. This is a new and broader figure than has been previously reported, as it includes all transactions the App Store facilitates, not just those ...

The Joy of Jewelry: Wear Handmade Jewelry to Add Style & Make Bold Statements

Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer; it’s when stores usually run all their fashion summer sales. By this point in the year, most of us have done some sort of spring cleaning and hopefully have Marie Kondo’d’ our closets. The long weekend with (usually) barbecues, bike-riding and maybe even beaches brings with it a fresh look and style, too. This year’s Memorial Day weekend is going to be a l...

Best things to do in Columbus, Ohio

Cities on the coasts like San Francisco and New York City offer a cultured vibe that’s hard to match. But with the astronomical cost of living and ultra-competitive housing markets, simply surviving in a trendy urban center is increasingly difficult to afford. People looking for an innovative and entertaining place to live that won’t empty your bank account shouldn’t pigeonhole themselves along the Atlantic or Pacific, though. They should instead be looking toward the Midwest. More specifical...

Knitting patterns around the world

Knitting has a bad rap. Everyone seems to think it’s the stuff of grannies, moms-to-be, and boring people who haven’t yet discovered the joys of television. But it’s hardly an insignificant craft, and it should certainly not be synonymous with old age and domesticity. Knitting was invented out of necessity for us to not freeze our butts off and has become, over the past 18 centuries or so, an art form that is the carrier of culturally specific techniques, tools, and traditions. The classic pa...

Goodbye, 2018

Hope is being able to see that there is light, despite all the darkness. — Desmond Tutu Many people I know are celebrating — no, acknowledging, that’s better —  the fact that they survived 2018. Their accomplishments — compared to the Herculean task of merely functioning in a year so dark — are secondary, at best. I get this, do I ever. Perched over my keyboard in the bleakness of this December morning, it feels miraculous to have again hit the ‘on’ button, to have opened a connection to the w...

A Local, Italian Sustainable Christmas Gift Guide

This past year at work I’ve been involved in a project called TCBL, a collaborative, EU funded project to increase sustainability in the textile and clothing industry. It’s one of a number of initiatives working in this direction, a more B2B than B2C one. But maybe you’ve heard of the Ellen Macarthur Foundation or the campaign “who made my clothes”? The driving content is basically the same. We’re living in a world covered in an unimaginable heap of stuff, stuff that won’t disintegrate for centu...

What to Buy for Someone Who Loves to Travel

Every November, I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time wading through an ocean of gift guides created by other travel bloggers.
