Cheeky Packaging

DSC_0409

Always on the look out for cute food packaging ideas, and I really liked this one by Hugo & Victor for chocolates. The chocolates were so delicious too, very light shells with loose caramels or fruit jams inside.

Million miles away…

DSC_0714

Right now I wish I was in Chablis, France! I visited the area when I was staying at La Lucarne aux Chouettes. The lovely owner of the hotel let us borrow her car to drive to Chablis. Caroline (the owner) was probably one of the nicest most hospitable people I’ve ever met, couldn’t believe she [...]

Les Cocottes de Christian Constant, Paris

I don’t know how many of you guys have been to Les Cocottes in the 7th arrondissement…Last time I went it was bustling with people but I think it’s safe to say this is the perfect place to eat lunch. Though the vibe of this restaurant screams “chic diner” the food is too delicious …

Park Hyatt Paris, Breakfast

DSC_9116

There was nobody here, by 9 this place is packed, even difficult to be seated. Thankfully I was down here by 6:30 am. I love when things are not quite ready and waiters are still hustling to get the tables fixed and the buffet prepared. Quiet whispers between co-workers and what they did …

Fauchon, Paris

DSC_0977

How many times have I wished for a Fauchon in the US? Many. Fauchon is an anomaly, it is luxurious fast food. Imagine the speed of McDonald’s with the taste of a high end french bistro. There was one in NYC but it shut down. Fauchon is like Sephora in the way it is …

La Lucarne Aux Chouettes, Villeneuve Sur Yonne, France

After several days in Paris I hopped on a train to check out this bed & breakfast place I had read about in a magazine. It all sounded so amazing (and affordable might I add? At $99 euro a night and a cheap train ticket from Garde De Lyon this was the perfect mini-vacation) …

L'atelier de Robuchon, Paris

DSC_0486

Thanksgiving is tomorrow but I’m thinking how nice it would be to just wing it and end up in a casual but tasty restaurant such as L’atelier de Robuchon…I already have the-smallest-I-could-find-turkey brining in my fridge so it’s too late for that..By no means is this place “mind-blowing” taste wise but the food is delicious [...]

Park Hyatt Hotel, Paris

DSC_0276

Starting just a year ago I developed a mild interest in interiors..Though I love beautiful spaces my default design ethos for interiors has always been ‘get-rid-of-everything-you-don’t-need-make-it-look-as-empty-as-possible-put-everything-inside-its-drawer’. That’s not to say my room doesn’t turn into a mess! My interest in food and kitchen tools developed early on but recently my interest in interiors …
