Combination of good genes, knowing when to only take a few bites, and exercising whenever I can + however I can. In Paris it's been lots and lots of walking every single day.

You will probably never go hungry in Paris but I have to admit I’ve come close. Many places are closed on Sunday, as are the grocery stores. Sometimes on Mondays as well. The hours can be quite puzzling. Places will... Continue reading

In friendship foklore, the story goes that back in Jr. High we all thought my best friend Heather was the coolest because she could rock the denim overalls. She was trendy and fashion forward. That might have been 15+ years... Continue reading

The Bonjour kit is now in the shop and will ship next week. I adore the stamp set in this kit especially. They are limited edition so when they're gone, they're gone. Merci beaucoup! Continue reading

Last week a friend was teasing me. "You've lived in Paris for three months and haven't learned French?" Oui. I've always heard that the best way to learn a language is to be immersed in it. But he was right.... Continue reading

I have been doing a lot of thinking about business, shop, brand, products lately (which isn't as fun as thinking about bread, cheese, crossiant, more cheese) and hope to continue to offer items that you will love using. There's a... Continue reading

I travel by myself 95% of the time. I love it. Absolutely love it. I'm a person who likes their alone time (craves it actually) and doesn't mind doing things solo. I really enjoy being able to dictate my own... Continue reading

Hi Kai! Thanks for being a longtime reader and following along on the adventures. I have made the decision to turn the blog into more of travel resource guide and less of a personal space. I'm happy to do a post on tips for a long term stay in Paris though, so look for that soon!

My favorite meal so far in Paris has been at Clamato. Many restaurants are closed for part or most of August while everyone goes on holiday, so this was one that I definitely wanted to hit while I could. I... Continue reading
