Paris Pinks

 Thanks to you I wasted easily an hour this morning pinning Pinterest pinks. (An hour I don't have since I am NOT packed and this trip I would like to remember to take my makeup so I don't have to replace it for a lot more $$$ in Paris!). We made these gorgeous pink framboise macaron shells at Chef Marthe Brohan's private class at her home.
More to come another time.
 Paris pink renoncules on rue Vavin.

 Pink French writing at Boulangerie Secco

 on rue Jean Nico

 Sooo pink.

 Spring pink yaourt at Monop

 Put a pink ribbon on it and you know you're in Paris.

 At parfumeur Annick Goutal.

 On rue Oberkampf an R-rated pink bow.

 Hot, hot pink scarf goes on anything in Paris
 Green leaves are essential to make your pinks PINKER on rue Raspail at Sunday Bio marche.
 A touch of green makes a marsipan bun from La Mere de Famille pinker.
 See, it's universal. 
Bears love ice cream!
 A pink gateau mold that looks surprisingly like the cover of Pierre Herme Pastries book.
What do you think?
 Along with inspiring me to make ice cream and showing me how to put a PIN IT button in my browser(!) my niece suggested I might...ummm...work on my posture.
This is a pink reminder.
Practice practice practice
Then I might look like this gorge Printemps watercolor illo by Aurore de la Morinerie TOMORROW in Paris! Please pray I get packed in time and I don't forget my MAKEUP etc.
Cheers, Carolgxx

What a colorful sendoff, Carol.
Don"t forget to take along some of that pink stuff in a bottle...just in case you eat too much of...whatever.
Looking forward to your Paris posts.

Carol I love your quirkiness. And I LOVE PINK!!

Great selection of photos. Must remember: "Put a pink ribbon on it and you know you're in Paris"

Have a good time and don't forget your make-up:)

I figured if I put it in BOLD it would help.
croise les doigts as they say..

Here's a quest for you. Find us some adorable ballets (with or without pink) that we can actually afford to buy.

Paris Pinks sounds like the name of a book....
the rannuculus are amazing! And that pink scarf; perfection.

Joyfulartist said...

You go to Paris so often lately I think you should just keep a bag packed with essentials. My daughter travels a lot and keeps a bag of toiletries and make up ready to go at all times. It easier that way.

Jennifer Boykin said...

Thanks for the Pink Posture reminder. We did that same move in yoga last week. Bon Voyage.

Fleaing France & French Shopping Tours said...

Glad to see that you are getting the hang of pinning :)
Have a safe flight and welcome back to France!

A Brush with Color said...

Have a great trip, Carol! I didn't even realize you were heading back already. Yikes!

Connie said...

Oh My! Now that I've discovered your Paris Pinks on Pinterest I'll NEVER stop Pinning!!!
Bon Voyage! Amusez-vous bien! Bises. Connie*

Last trip I left WITHOUT lipstick and rouge!
I might as well have put a paper bag on my head..
And Laura Mercier may be a Fr name but the prix is way higher in Paris let me tell you :O

Parisbreakfasts said...

I do that daily in Paris Shoefreak
I am a serious ballerina comparison shopper!
But I just forget to buy :(

Parisbreakfasts said...

Kind of like an Egyptian hieroglyphic IMHO without the belly dancing...

Parisbreakfasts said...

I'm totally hooked too
Not to find out about the blog footer..
Then I'm set to go
merci for all the help
too much fun!

Murissa said...

Pink, for me, is just another sign of Spring!
Can't wait to see the result of your trip. Have fun in Paris!!

Now you make me lust for pink.
Ranunculas rule

Nikon said...

Great selection of things pink :)
I really love that last shot - the watercolor!
Have a great trip!

LB's mom said...

Oh how I wish I too were packing for Paris!!!! I love those ranunculas!!! As for pink in Paris, what about Fauchon? I was craving their chocolate eclairs yesterday ;)

Clare said...

Sorry to be a pain, but bring Pink wellies, a Pink mac, a Pink parapluie and Pink outdoor clothing for Bear.

Jeanette, Mistress of Longears said...

think what a bonus it would be to forget to pack your makeup...and be FORCED to invest in those luxurious French brands unavailable to the riffraff on this side of the ocean. Even if they cost the world, at least you'd be in a very exclusive club! Bon voyage!

Frances said...

Safe travel and bon voyage to you, Carol!


Unknown said...

Jenny said...

Oh, this must be a delightful time to visit sweet Pah-ree. And pinterest....I have had to stay away for awhile. It is like the black hole for my time. Bon Voyage dear friend.

Merisi said...

Bon voyage, Carol, and a wonderful springtime in Paris! xxx

~Suzanne~ said...

I always learn SO much from you!!!
I hope you have a wonderful trip~can't wait to see Paris again (through your eyes).
Have you made a list of all the neat shops you recommend??? It sure would be nice to have a place to find them all.
Bon Voyage!

Maia said...

Pinterest is positively pernicious that way ;)

Fifi Flowers said...

I want those leopard shoes with bows... soooo FUN!

Janelle said...

The watercolours might be done by Caroline Andrieu? She did the Male illustrations at Primptemps too http://tight-sweater.blogspot.fr/
She is the art director at Condé Nast digital's department and gets A LOT of illustration work in France.

Parisbreakfasts said...

I saw those BIG heads in the vitrine at Printemps but these are much looser IMO
Still good try Janelle
Caroline Andrieu

a bit Mats Gustafson but not quite either..
