Have a nice and bright weekend!
Here is my little Paris review. This time we were staying at a cute apartment in Le Marais. The area is extremely historic, arty, young and very very busy. For shopping and inspiration I totally enjoy the Rue Vieille-du-Temple neighborhood. Don’t miss to pass by MERCI, have a coffee at the Institut Suedois and for dinner try the traditional “Les Philosophes” or the hip and very Pink Flamingo pizza place.
For the classic superhip & chic go to Collette, Astier de Villatte, Ba&sh at Rue Saint-Honoré. Enjoy the cool shops and the beautiful architecture at Palais Royal and say Bonjour to Mona Lisa at the Louvre.
Get the best “Oh mon dieu”-view from Sacré-Cœur. For the romance and the real Paris feeling walk the streets of the cute Montmartre neighborhood. For the best ideas in town go to Atypyk and Les Mauvaises Graines.
For the real deal – the less touristic Paris, try the 9th arrondissement (around Rue Condorcet & Rue Navarin), find beautiful vintage outfits at Chezel, have lunch at Hôtel Amour and take a tea at Musée de la Vie Romantique.
Last but not least – my latest discovery – Rue de Grenelle at Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Classy and very inspiring. Don’t miss to check out the Maison Martin Margiela shop and the most fun Bonton kids shop.
Voilà! I’m driving back home with plenty of nice memories, Champagne in the boot and a Vogue on the backseat.
Wishing everyone a happy and fun 2013! Hope the new year will bring you a lot of inspiration, happiness and peace.
My all time favorite place to take a very Parisian break, is the Swedish Institute (SI) in Le Marais.
This wonderful Parisian ‘Hôtel particulier’ is one of the most beautiful places where you can discover Swedish culture, art and design. I love the Café with all the yummy Swedish pastries and the cozy scandinavian atmosphere. Make sure you pay a visit to the garden. It’s magic!
Ps: Isn’t it crazy to go all the way to Paris to have a perfect Swedish coffee moment? I guess it’s all about the mix. Simply perfect!

Le Miroir is my favorite place to wine & dine¹ when I’m in Montmartre. It’s the kind of neighborhood bistro you wish to find when you are hungry in Paris. Perfect for a yummy lunch² or a cozy dinner. Just make sure you reserve a table.
¹ the “cafe gourmand” takes you to the moon and back!
² if you have spend all your money and you want to enjoy French cuisine, go there for lunch!
The lunch menu is absolutely affordable and the food is amazing.
94 rue des Martyrs, 75018 Paris
The little boutique on Rue St.Honoré takes you on a trip to another century. So inspiring and sensual.
Ps: Don’t forget to check out each and every one of their candles.

Answer: Still in bed!!!
Dreaming of Paris… has kept me busy for the last couple of days. I have spend some days in bed struggling with heavy migraine and toothache. Merry x-mas!
Is there anything worse than being sick during Summer?
I guess there is… so I’ll stop crying.
Paris is the pain killer Nr.1!!! So I decided to take you to Paris next week and share my favorite places. After all the Berlin exploring it’s time for some “Très chic, très hip, très sexy”!
If you’re planing a stroll trough the charming ‘Le Marais’ area, you should pay a visit to my latest discovery. Odetta a cute little vintage boutique, which offers a great selection of vintage designer clothes, accessories and furniture.
