Assignment Printemps

Yesterday I got a last minute 'Spring' assignment... From Parisien online perfume company I work for... I started tearing out hairs and then it came to me...
Put Spring flowers inside perfume bottles.
Voila!
Tomorrow I'll be hunting for Spring for real...
I promise not to miss a trick...
I'll be checking all the Paris vitrines/windows...
Guerlain's vitrines are full of fleurs of a sort...
Yesterday Peter's Paris showed the burgeoning Printemps...
Manon 21 created these witty printed flowers in pots...
I'm off to the pool for my usual swim-before-traveling. I'm almost all packed. In Paris I would LOVE to go to this Aquabike classe at La Maison Popincourt. On verra bien (one can always hope...)
BONJOUR PARIS SPRING!

  2. How about a photo of your travel art supplies? Do they go into your checked luggage or do you hand carry?

  11. The last time I was in Paris, I was married and it was 1992! My son, Sam, and I will be staying in the Marais this time.
    I spent the whole morning yesterday (instead of doing my taxes) online watching Ines's video diaries.
    Now have to lose 15 pounds and develop sense of style in 2 weeks...jeez!
    Don't know if I can afford the trench coat, but I'll have the chic-est socks in town (Tabio).
    so much to plan!

    best.
