I <3 Paris

love-parisI know, shame on me, but I couldn’t resist buying one of the most typical tourist souvenir from Paris – the Eiffel Tower keyring…. One of the most ugliest buildings in the world, according to me, yet a great symbol of Paris, since you can see the tower almost from wherever you are when you’re in the city. So what couldn’t be better than having my own miniature Eiffel Tower, next to my gilded heart from Paris? Small details but things that evokes so many feelings. Now it’s on my window frame in my bedroom so that I can see it whenever I wake up and just before I go to sleep :-)

Leaving Paris

shuttlebus-parisYesterday evening it was time to leave my beloved Paris. Luckily it was a sunny day, around 15 degrees…so I had been strolling around in the city during the whole day….and then took a long break in the beautiful square, Place des Vosges..which is the perfect place for those sunny days.

The photo above was taken when I was in the shuttlebus on my way to the airport, on the bridge Pont d’Alexandre…in the background you can see the Louvre.

Can’t wait to plan my next trip to Paris…until then I will go through my photos and share them with you ;-)

Le Baron + Gazelle + Copenhagen = <3

Baron party in Copenhagen

The first after-party during the Fashionweek last week was definately the best after-party I’ve ever been to in Copenhagen. The Parisian club Le Baron + Gazelle….best combination ever ;-) Acctually the first time I saw Gazelle performing live was at Baron in Paris together with my friend Mo Laudi who also performed together with them. It was in June 2010 when I was living in Paris and that night turned out to be the beginning of my crazy party nights in Paris…so it was definately great to see the performing live again. The Danish group Vinne Who made also a great performance and DJ LeAm from Paris was simply awesome. He use to play at Baron and Montana in Paris so that kind of says it all ;-) The party was an after-party to the Henrik Vibskov fashionshow during the Fashionweek in Copenhagen, held at the Old Stock Exchange, Børsen.

A cup with sinful…

Angelina in Paris

When I’m up for a sugarcoma deluxe in Paris I endulge myself with a cup with velvety creamy and rich hot chocolate at Angelina Tea Salon that is located under the arcades of the Rue Rivoli in Paris. They have got several different hot chocolates on their menu and the one I usually pick is the classic one, le chocolat chaud à l’ancienne L’Africain – their signature hot chocolate.

Once you’ve had their hot chocolate (or a typical chocolat chaud à l’ancienne in France) a “hot chocolate” will never be the same. A cup with hot milk stirred with cocoa powder will be a faded memory….the real thing is hot milk and cream stirred with chopped 70% bittersweet chocolate so it becomes creamy and thick and then it’s served with whipped cream.

When you’ve been served and have prepared your cup, sit back, relax and enjoy the gilded ironworks and the beautiful mirrors in the tea salon decorated by the famous belle époque architect Edouard-Jean Niermans. The tea salon was established in 1903 by the Austrian confectioner Antoine Rumplemayer and it has been a favourite among persons such as Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn.

Angelina is not only famous for their hot chocolate, the house specialty is the Mont Blanc, that I will introduce to you in a later blogpost ;-)

Summer in Paris

Summer in Paris

Summer in Paris is great but personally I prefer the Spring when the beauty of Paris is re-born each year…or the Autoumn with all the colour changes of the leaves in the trees. During summer time I let the big crowd of tourists have their piece of Paris…while I go to a place close to the sea. Last year I went to Deauville but also a couple of times to the island Ile de Ré….this time I will go to a new place – also called the paradise on earth. To be continued ;-)
