LA TRESORERIE PARIS


Moving back to Paris had surprised me by the amount of new stores that opened while I was abroad.

Rue du chateau d’eau is one of my fav example as the whole street is all about new stores, from home decor and plants to bike stores and coffee shops.

Last month the street had all its stores having a street party where you can win a selection of gifts from almost all of the street stores.

My friend Annelise and I ending up playing some French bingo call loto in one of my new fav store called la Trésorerie. They have a great selection of home decor, beauty and home products with amazing taste! I’ll definitely go back take some pictures to share. People could win some gifts from the wine store, books, plants stores of the street and more, playing in a funny and happy atmosphere over cheese boards and drinks. At the very end of the game, i got very lucky and was the winner of that last one game and won 2 bags full of gifts from the store itself. (exactly what i wanted!! ) Here pictures are my gifts, a Japanese super light towel, cute plant ceramic pot, Swedish egg soap and a metal soap case, some wood brush for bath or kitchen and my fav, a little mist sprayer by the brand Haws. It looks so nice in the house and the size is cute and perfect.

I feel spoiled and happy :)

PARIS SUMMER NIGHTS

EMINENCE ROSEHIP TONIQUE REVIEW


When I was living in New-York, I’ve been ordering and using a lot of Eminence products as I couldn’t find good brands without chemicals and parabens.

The brand has a large range of products, all with super yummy textures and scents.

I have brought with me a rosehip tonic. They say you can spray it as much as you want during the day but I spray it on mornings and sometimes at night after I washed my face with some gentle soap. The spray format is really nice and it feels good to spray it directly on your face (close your eyes!).It tones the skin and makes it looks a bit fresher and clear. I’m not sure exactly if tonics are mandatory or do so much for your skin so I’ll switching back later to some less expensive ones we have in France, will share later on the blog :)

NEW YORK - MOMA - ADRIAN PIPER - A Synthesis of Intuitions, 1965–2016


As i had to go back to New York in april, i realized i didn't have much time to go to some cultural events such as museums right before i moved out of the city.

Moma is always a good place to go as their selection for modern art is always pretty good along with the diversity of artists i can discover there.

I really enjoyed the Adrian Piper exhibition and all the different projects you can see. Here i obviously recall the geometric shapes i really enjoyed, textures, drawings, paintings and lights. I encourage you to go see it, it's on until july 22th.

DIY renovating old french frame


I had this gold frame for so long that i had bought years ago at a Paris flea market.

I never loved that gold color but liked the raw frame and the look of so i decided to give it a new look instead on selling it.

I have sanded and painted it in white and gave it a fresh look for my bedroom. Voilà!

PIECES OF HOME

PARIIIIIS


Sooo the reason I haven’t been posting much these weeks or even months is that I have moved back to Paris and I’m now between Paris and New-York.

Being back after almost 5 years is a mix of a lot of different feelings! A lot of new places have open and I feel like a tourist..I’ll share some of my new favorite places along with old ones.

I have been so much in love with New-York but I have to admit that discovering Paris again makes me realize how romantic the city can be.
