Some days take on a color from the get go. Yesterday I received this card from a friend in New York of skaters in Central Park.
Next I looked at Monique's gorgeous post on her Canadian winter wonderland. If you have not visited La Table de Nana you have a big treat in store. Run, don't walk.
The only snow in Paris right now is faux (false) resting on top of faux chalets in the marche des Noels like the one on boulevard Saint Germain.
First thing I got off the bus yesterday I was blasted with a whoosh of Winter whites in perfumerie Caron's vitrine(window).
Next door Joseph had Winter white on the brain with this posh snowy outfit.
Monop has 'les hits tres hotte de Noel' Winter white T-shirt for the kids at a way lower price tag.
My purpose was a visit it to the new Café Pouchkine salon de The, 155, blvd Saint Germain 75006
If you want a true blast of winter head for a Russian café.
And very glam as expected.
Good idea to rob a bank before dropping by (though forget the rubles at the moment which are diving).
I wish I'd been more adventurous picking out my white dessert...
Why of why did I go for the Koulich (in fact an Easter fruit cake)? Oh right. I was looking on the right side of the menu.
The hot chocolate, made at your table at Pouchkine is divine. The cake, not so exciting. Half a bite and I was finished. Still a very good choice if you're on a diet. No worries or guilt about cleaning up the plate!
Outside the always tres hotte hit of the big white scarf is in evidence.
For a big splash of white visit Printemps on Avenue Haussmann.
More Winter whites at Monoprix. I am currently on THE GREEK DIET as of last Friday after perusing the NYTimes story on Maria Loi's new diet book. I've always been a big fan of Fage Greek yogurt. And supposedly, after 2 weeks of just a full cup for dinner I will lose 10 pounds! I'm up for that PBers. Anyone want to join in? So far I'm really enjoying it, plus the addition of a little chopped fresh coconut (also from Monop).
*As it happens Bear is a whiz at making easy Greek yogurt lemon zest ice cream. The recipe is here. Hmm I don't think Maria Loi would approve of this for her '10 pillars of eating'...ahem.
Is there snow where you are?
In Paris we have drizzle...again.
