paris by day.
Get ready … you are about to be bombarded with a mountain of savory imagery from one of the most exquisite places of the planet: Paris.
SEE: The Louvre is a perennial must on any visit. The imposing architecture alone is jaw dropping, and I find a new gem inside every time. My other favorite is the Musée d’Orsay (not pictured) because I love love the impressionists. Above, TW gets his French on!
EAT (or at least LOOK): Our hotel was conveniently located in St. Germain near the abundant Raspail Organic Market. An absolute feast for the eyes and tummy with stands that go on for days.
VISIT: After gorging at the Market, take a hunk of cheese over to the Luxembourg Gardens for some more outdoor magnificence.
SHOP: On our way over the Luxembourg Gardens, I stumbled upon this fantastic natural bath product shop + salon. I have been using the Avocat facial oil every day since my return. Now I just need to figure out a way to get my hands on more!
SHOP: Another culinary must in St. Germain is Poilane
, where the bread is off the charts. Stop for a little carbo fuel or one of their lovely market totes to bring home.
SHOP: The ultimate one-stop-shop is Le Bon Marché
! Celine, Isabel Marant, Diptyque, Bonpoint, Aesop…. yes! all under ONE roof. Not too mention, Le Bon Marche had the best Christmas displays in town.
