Perhaps it’s the winter weather and darker days that has me in an eat-croissants-all-day and drink-wine-all-night kind of mood but I've had a real longing for Paris this week. It’s been a while since I last visited the City of Lights and that all-too-familiar travel itch has resurfaced. However, with my bank account reminding me - rather rudely and abruptly, I must say - to calm the fuck down, I'm left with this post, dedicated to one of my favourite cities, as a means to sate my appetite for all things French. I even stole some quotes out of Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, and Sophie Mas’s bestselling book, How to be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style and Bad Habits. Makes it that much more authentic ;)

“The Parisienne retains her little imperfections, cherishes them even (the gap in her smile or her slightly crooked tooth, her prominent eyebrows or strong nose): these are the signs of a certain strength of character and allow her to feel beautiful without being perfect.”

“In truth, more than wanting to look young—which is but a fleeting illusion—they want above all to become the best possible version of themselves, outside and in, at any age.”
