Last week I was back in what most people refer to the City of Love, Paris. I lived there two years ago and even though I have been back a few times since moving, it has always been for the work and only for the day. This meant seeing Paris through the taxi in between the station and the showroom. This time was different as I stayed for two days and spent the night in Paris, still for work but more time for pleasure this time.
When walking from Garde de Nord ( Yes luckily Londoners can take the train to Paris) to Marais it stroke me how beautiful the city is, I had forgotten about the Parisians buildings and how charming the city is. Funny how sometimes you need a bit of distance in able to see things clearly again.
My visit didn’t get any worse when I meet up with friends for dinner and breakfast and that I managed to squeeze in a visit to one of my favorite shop Merci, see picture above. I would really recommend this store if you are into design, my favorite department is the interior design floor. Oh, la la as you would say in France. If you interested in visiting the store but can’t go to Paris check out their online store HERE
I must also fill in that it was nice by Thursday night to come home to London and my life here, home is where your heart is. But I will always have Paris…
It might be spring and the whole idea of spring cleaning, or just simply me being fed up with having my shoes all mixed up and hard to get a good overview of, that made me once and for all organize my shoes. Whatever reason it might have been I must say I am pretty happy with my current shoe situation, and it really does inspire me more to pick different shoes in the morning since it’s no so easy! It’s not rocket science how I did this, so I will let you scroll down to see for yourself.
I chose to write the brand on the photo to make it even easier
You can even use it as side table in your bedroom ( Gotta love a multi-purpose )
All you need is this little guy and a marker pen
Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?! Note to myself: Never throw away an empty shoe box ever again!
Anyone who knows me well knows that I absolutely love interior deco. Right now I’m drawn to leather, rattan, wood, the color white and plants. Very nature close colors and harmonic. If you think about it really doesn’t have to be that expensive to reach this type of home, most high street decor brands have products that will work well if you want to achieve this styling. Just check my favorites below and let’s be honest a green plant doesn’t cost a fortune either! Anyone who has more suggestions?
I love Instagram, that is just they way it is. I also love the fact that Instagram now allows you to save photos in a folder, perfect for an Instagram addict as myself who is constantly looking for inspiration. My last photos saved in my folder are the one above, a mix of fashion, decoration and art, just they way I like it.
