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

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

  10. 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.

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

  24. 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!

  25. Safe travel and bon voyage to you, Carol!

  32. 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.
