Years Prior

Hello there, It’s hard to believe that back in 2010, I was telling Ian (my boyfriend at the time and my best friend at this time) that I didn’t want to go to Paris. We were trying to decide on a halfway stop between our Italy trip and our stop in Switzerland and I was…

The Catalyst

Hi there, I got a job offer in Paris . Granted, it’s part-time work and so my search isn’t over, but this is it. This is the catalyst I needed to move forward. I couldn’t go there with nothing, but now I have something. I may be Ernest Hemingway-style poor, but it’s something. It’s Paris….

Silence, Beauty in Discovery, Dreaming of France & the Like

Hey there, I’ve strayed from my daily posts. I’ve decided that if I don’t have much to say, what’s the point of forcing it? And I haven’t touched upon day three of my trip to NYC because it was rainy, uneventful, and not worth chronicling (but you will continue to see photos, here and there)….

Unlocking my Obsession with Inspiring Workspaces

Hey there, When I was re-arranging my office space into a more open, bright and welcoming layout, I also imagined that one day I would be focusing on an “inspiration board” or decorating the area around the desk in a way that inspires me as I work here. As a lifestyle blogger, my topics of…

Hello friends, It’s been a while — I apologize for that. It’s not as though life has been busy. It’s not as though I stopped day-dreaming about my grand scheme to move to Paris. It’s not as though I’ve stopped planning it all. I just didn’t feel compelled to write, and if it feels like…

The Long Haul

Hello friends, Sometimes, when I’m thinking about the grand move to Paris, I’m also left thinking about what I would bring over there. Considering the expense to ship stuff over by boat or to lug over with multiple suitcases by plane, what I bring to Paris needs to be considered carefully. I have slowly been…

Hello friends, This is all I have to share with you, today: xo C

Paris: A Love Explained

Hello friends, Whenever I speak about my love of Paris, I’m always quick to be asked: what’s so special about it? It’s a dangerous question to ask me if you’re short on time, because I could go on about it in sonnets and song. But here, let me list a few reasons why Paris captures…

Passionately Fashion-Forward Parisians

Hello friend, It’s no doubt that two countries in the world are most well-known for fashion: Italy and FranceĀ (New York as well, but that’s only one city in a large country, so it does not count!). I am fascinated by the Parisian look, and fascinated by all the rules that apply to dress (and all…
