Remember last time I told you I was going to Paris for a couple of days with my mother. Well, we went and had a marvelous time there. Weather was great, food amazing and Paris still an incredible city. I compiled some of my favorite places below starting with the area around the Canal Saint Martin (a true discovery) and le Marais. Enjoy and please share your faves as well in the comment section!
Starting day 1 with a hot chocolate and delicious cookie at Ten Belles (2 & 3). I’m not a coffee addict but it is known as serving one of the best coffee in town.
Artazart Design Bookstore (4): I think we spent almost an hour in this store, looking at all their beautiful collection of design, art and photography books. Loved it!
Hotel du Nord (5): a restaurant highly recommended by my Parisian friend Zoe. Unfortunately it was a little to early in the morning for us to have dinner ; ) but both menu and atmosphere looked great!
Then heading to le Marais taking the Beaurepaire street with fashion brands such as Cotélac, les Petits Hauts, American Apparel or The Kooples.
Merci (6,7,8,9,10,11): 3 floors, 1500 square meters of home accessories, clothes and jewels from famous creators as well as bar and delicious cantine downstairs. We had a salad, a creamy risotto and an incredible crumble for lunch. Last but not least, the profits Merci makes on your purchases are donated to charities. A must!
Finally, after a productive shopping session at Virginie Castaway, Iro, Claudie Pierlot, Ba&sh and American Vintage finish the day with a glass of cider and a crepe at the famous Breizh Café (12). A delight!
