I spend the majority of my time sat at my desk, in front of my computer so when I do have time off, and these days it’s a rarity – I like to get out into the city and just simply enjoy the luxury of living in Paris.
I’ll start the day early with a huge cup of coffee at a café somewhere, usually along the Tuileries gardens. Paris culture revolves around cafes, so it’s not a quick drink & dash endeavour, I’ll sit here, sometimes with a pile of books or magazines for a good hour or two. Plus, I love people watching and Paris hosts a pretty fascinating array of people to observe.
I love to stop by Angelina’s during my time off – just to pour over their beautiful displays or like this time, grab a mille-feuille to enjoy in the park.
I have an absolute weak-spot for packaging and Angelina’s is some of the prettiest I’ve ever seen!
Sun-basking and pastry-eating in the Tuileries on a spring day is simply heavenly. As I work for myself, I don’t always have weekends off and will sometimes find my free time during the week, when the park is a little more peaceful and far more enjoyable.
Catch up with the Barefoot Blonde and come back next month when we ‘take five’ somewhere else in the world.
