Rough puff Paris
21 November 12
Litte bit behind schedule, but here's my Paris phone photo diary.
Off to a soggy start, got caught in the rain without an umbrella on way too many occasions.
Everyone else was keeping it classy though, despite the precipitation.
Standard Paris shopping basket: milk, bread, wine, diet coke, yogurt, cheese, chocolate, crisps. I should start a healthy living blog!
The closest I got to any parties was a glass of wine with my photo editing or a celebratory burger on the last day (was really into burgers on this trip).
Our apartment was in an area of wholesale clothes shops with extremely intriguing window displays and names like:
This Warholian one was my favourite though.
And the street leading up to the apartment was always full of deliveries and people throwing boxes around.
Got very fond of our neighbourhood though.
Amazing tiny petrol station. In short, all the amenities.
It was just a short walk to Marais, too.
Ate some fucking awful sushi.
Did some walking, some people watching.
Spent lots of time in the Tuileries.
And had MINI BURGERS at LADUREE like a bad blogger (not as photogenic as ~macarons~ but so tasty).
Hid from the rain, again.
Rain, rain, rain.
Paris was still beautiful though.
Got brainwashed into buying a Kenzo jumper after seeing everyone else in one. No regrets though, it's been my favourite thing to wear in the last month.
Got a couple of lipsticks from the MAC Marilyn collection. Packaging is tacky as hell, but the lipsticks are good (Charmed I’m Sure is basically Ruby Woo without the awful dry formula FYI).
Popped in to Printemps.
Had a nutritious "salad".
Got a taxi tour of Boulevard Périphérique at sunrise (quite moving in the emotional sense, for a dual-carriageway) en route to the Kenzo show.
Backstage at Kenzo, probably my favourite show of the season shooting-wise.
ON THE METRO.
Went to Palais de Tokyo.
one of my favourite spaces
and the exhibitions are never boring
if occasionally a bit baffling.
Saw the Chloe exhibition.
And more importantly, the best museum book shop ever.
Look at all the kids books!
Want one of everything.
Had some working lie-ins (that's picture editing in bed).
Took lots of typical Paris-y pictures of buildings
wall paintings, instagrammable flowers,
and a jolly Palais Brongniart.
Had a croque-monsieur opposite Chanel.
And then it was time to leave
lovely, rainy Paris
until next time!
