iParis, Do You?

iParised all weekend and got out of my little bubble that is the 16th arrondissement. Have a look...

Happy 5th Birthday to a dear friend who's been the hangout of choice for expat mom coffee mornings (because they're kid friendly!)

Déclicieux! Tourists sampling French cuisine as the garbage truck drives by at the Marché Poncelet.

Crazy Parisian drivers around the Madeleine.

Ladurée, La Mom's favorite tea rooom for a croissant aux amandes et pistache and a café crème. Go early in the morning, because the line is out the door by afternoon.

Want an affordable piece of French luxury? Head to Hermès on the Rue du Fauboug Saint Honoré for a bangle, belt, or scarf.

Stay tuned later this week as La Mom reveals the demise of a major French fashion accessory!

I am really glad I found your blog, my husband and I plan to live in Spain half the year very soon. I know this is FRANCE :) But I still think it will help me!

Ahh Starbucks. I also must visit there from time to time for a taste of home. Did you anything special for the 4th? We went to a fireworks show at our local Palace, it was almost like being at home! Laura in Germany

I'm on pins and needles re: the major French fashion accessory! What is it?!

Only the French can make dining ala garbage cool.
