Bon Weekend!

When I was in Paris last month I visited the store Merci. There is a wonderful little cafe at the front of the store where the walls are lined with old books which you are able to read. It was a warm day outside so I decided this would be a wonderful place to stop for a while and have a fresh orange juice. Look at how it arrived. It really is all in the detail ...and the little white paper cup had a perfect mouthful of cake.... delicious!

For me its all about enjoying the simple things! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get some time to stop and enjoy the little details which surround us....Axx

Hello again...I am back from my trip to Paris and share with you the first lot of my Paris photo's.

Ralph Lauren opened his first European restaurant in Paris just 8 weeks before I arrived. The new store and restaurant is located on Boulevard St Germain.

Surrounded by gorgeous Ralph Lauren fabrics and furniture, the courtyard is a wonderful spot to enjoy lunch before spending the afternoon shopping the many wonderful boutiques. The beautiful potted flowers, plants and the sound of water coming from the fountain add to the Summer atmosphere.

Unfortunately I was not able to eat there. I tried to book into Ralph's for brunch in the beautiful courtyard and was told they are booked out for one month. So next trip I shall make sure I book well in advance!
