I’ve been cheating, if the truth should be said. For years I’ve been faithful to Angelina‘s Mont Blanc, but since I’ve moved to Rue de Varenne in Paris and been living on the street as the boulangerie/pâtisserie Secco I have had a hard time resisting their mouthwatering Mont Blanc. I know..when it comes to pastries I just cannot put a hold on myself..and since I was very curious to know, one day a Mont Blanc from Secco accompagnied me home. As you can see I was caught in action in the photo above…..if the grass was greener on the other side? You will know very soon….

Hypnotic…as in Hypnotic Poison from Dior. One of my favourite perfumes.
While men has been literally hypnotized, women have been running after me asking me what perfume I’m wearing. The secret formula behind this seductive perfume? A hypnotic combo of apricot, coconut, jasmine, rose, almond, vanilla and other secret notes…

Christmas decorations have invaded the City of Lights and if you want to see a giant Christmas tree, run over to Galeries Lafayette :-) Frankly I’m not impressed with 2013′s Christmas tree decorated by Swatch….but I must admit it’s still fascinating to see it hanging in the air with the incredible domes ceiling, an piece of art built in 1912, in the background. Their Christmas Tree in 2010 impressed me more with the Christmas boxes all over in the air around the tree.

Café Varenne is situated in the corner of Rue De Varenne and Rue Du Bac (my two favourite streets in Paris) and I’m blessed having this bistro as my neighbor! The staff has been welcoming since the very first time I went there (in September) , always smiling and the service is always on top! That gives me just more reasons going there often ;-)
Yesterday evening I had dinner there with my friend. Since my favoruite dish, the organic salmon is not anymore on their menu I tried their haddock. The haddock was perfectly prepared and was served on a bed of de puy lentilles. Already when we entered the bistro I had glanced on the counter to see what they had left for desserts and the tarte tatin looked excellent so I gave it a try. It was sweet and heavenly and a scoop of yummie caramel du sél ice cream from Le Bac à Glaces with crunchy caramel pieces was served together with the tarte.
