Weekend Reading

A homemade life Paris 3

  • Which fairytale castle will you be staying in during the holidays this December? Harper’s Bazaar shares some of the most magnificent and chic castles to spent the holidays in with your loved ones. I wouldn’t mind spending a few weeks at Cap Rocat in Spain (think golden castle, a glittering saltwater swimming pool and an endless supply of fresh seafood) or at the Balfour Castle in Scotland, where I would curl up by an open fire with a cup of tea. A girl can dream, right?
  • Everyone knows that Paris is one of the world’s most romantic cities. Therefore, Condé Nast Traveler shares a list of the most charming places to kiss in the City of Lights. I think these places are the best: Île Saint-Louis for a romantic evening stroll and the idyllic Montmartre with its cosy hideaways.
  • I can highly recommend the incredibly inspiring story written by Garance Doré about the advantages of simplifying your life. From beauty and clothes to food and travelling.
  • On her blog TrésorParisien, Aisling Greally shares a few lovely photographs and tips of how to prepare for a night in the city. Think choosing the right music to set the mood (I always listen to Coldplay and Calvin Harris), finding the perfect lipstick and enjoying a glass of wine (or two).
  • December has finally arrived so it’s time to find the perfect presents! It’s time to get creative! Apartment Therapy shares some tips of how to tie a perfect ribbon bow for a gift.
