I’ve updated Paris Recommendations Part 2: Pâtisserie and Tea with the photos that my mom took of the patisserie display. And the first show I’ve liked so far in this tv season, Heroes on NBC. It rocks. I haven’t been so blown away by a tv show in ages. I am serious hooked. If you’ve [...]

September 25th, 2006 1 Comment

I started a scarf back in January or maybe even earlier. I’ve been working on it on and off since then. It’s been so long and I’ve gotten almost no where on it. I finally gave in last night and ripped it all up. This is what I have now. I must have ripped out [...]

Wow. The moleskine city notebooks are coming out soon. This is just what I need. I’ve been doing this for the last few years now for my travels: I get a notebook and for each big trip I take, I use it to take notes of les bonnes adresses and keep notes for future reference. [...]

Paris Recommendations Part 4: Museums

September 21st, 2006 No Comments

This is part four of my Paris Recommendations Week series. Museums: If you’re looking to go to a couple of museums, get the Musuem Pass for the appropriate number of days. It’s worth the money. When I took my parents, I allocated 1 day for the Louvre and the next day as flexible. Just so [...]


Paris Recommendations Part 3: Shopping

September 20th, 2006 No Comments

This is part three of my Paris Recommendations Week series. Shopping: I prefer Saint Germain area in the 6e arr because it’s more chic and has many of the same designer stores as other places but more laid back.  (St. Sulpice area). Carry a copy of your passport on you, so you can have the [...]
