End of Summer: France

“The world is full of love that goes unspoken. It does not mean that it is felt less deeply or, through separation, leaves a cleaner wound. Its beauty and its pain are in its silence.” – J. Worth

10 quick ideas on what to do when you find yourself traipsing around Paris and the French countryside:

1. Attend a friend’s very French, very posh wedding:

2. Find a cool spot in a park and read a book, doodle, or enjoy the moment with your sweetie:

3. Treat yourself to another Paris-Brest and a chocolat chaud, even when it is hot and humid outside. Because Paris!

4. Do some night walks with friends and check out that medieval castle:

5. Eat a nice meal at a place that only Parisians know about, then have an ice cream at a popular but classic spot:

8. Wear a bangin’ accessory (like my lipstick red fringe clutch below) and attend that love-themed countryside party. Get ready to flirt:

10. Finally, never ever forget to have a glass of wine on the daily, and relax in a café:

  1. Inspired by your blog I thought to try Ribouldingue, Paris, but someone wrote on Tripadviser that it had closed. Lucky that you went while you had the chance. Thank you for liking my page.
