busy little bee!


Or rather Saturday, but this post was supposed to go live yesterday.

I'm just checking in with you guys. How is everyone? If any of us here in Paris thought we were getting an early spring, we've been informed otherwise by the weather Gods. It's cold, ice winds are blasting down the rues and the snow has returned! Brrr!

I've been quiet this week in the "sphere" because there is a lot going on! Here's a rough recap of events to be fleshed out in later posts to come.

First off as some of you know, my mom is in town this week with her boyfriend. I'm leaving them to do sightseeing and such, which is great because they're really getting to know the town and how to get around without me. Well...I believed that until they told me that they were over by Le Louvre, made a "wrong turn" and ended up at the Arc de Triomphe Saint Martin in the 10th. That must have been a pretty long wrong turn.

Also, I've started the wedding dress hunt! To be continued....

Next week starts Paris Fashion Week and taking a leap outside of my usual showroom duties, I decided this year that I wanted to go to the shows where all the action is. If you ask, you shall receive...well, sort of. While the invites to the heavy-hitter shows like Vuitton, Miu Miu and Chanel didn't exactly come pouring in like pudding, I managed to score tickets to some of the smaller shows which I'm extremely grateful for. Look out for my Paris Fashion Week diary starting next week!

And now we're off to spend the weekend at Gilles and Françoise's to meet with some of our vendors and the caterers for the wedding. I wish you all a lovely weekend and will fill you in on all of these exciting things (plus my new project!) when I come back up for air!
Bon week-end!

    1. Did you get snow at all this weekend? It was coming down (not sticking) over here the entire weekend! It made for a lovely winter wonderland out in Fontainebleau! I hope you had a lovely weekend, and thanks again for your help. :)

    1. Yes, he's a pilot! I mention him from time to time on the blog. He's not as animated as the rest of us (which is a good thing!), so he normally blends into the scene.

      Thanks MK!! Need to hop over toy our blog to see what you've been up to! I'm so out of the loop!

    1. I want to see what else is out there. Also, I figured, when will I ever get an opportunity to go wedding dress shopping in Paris (Well hopefully only once)? Thought I'd take advantage of being in the capital of couture, as well as share what Parisian wedding stores are all about to my mom and you readers!

  7. I hope you're having a great weekend and that the wedding planning is going well!
    It has been snowing non-stop here. Brrrr!
    Gook luck with your wedding dress hunt!
    I can't wait to hear about the fashion shows.

    Just read your breakdown of Paris Arrondissements! It's wonderful! I will keep it handy for my next trip into Paris.
    Last time I went I stayed at your least fave 13th (Place d'Italie) and I found that cool Buttes aux Cailles neighborhood (I mentioned it last night.. the 1st time I ever mentioned it, and here I'm reading about it! ha). ...I can't believe the last time I was in Paris was Nov '11...
    Thanks for the tips!

    1. The snow must be a-fallin' all over France. Here it's not sticking as much as it's falling, which is nice.

      Thank you! I'm glad you liked the article! It was supposed to be fun, and just steering first time visitors away from staying in the rougher parts of town, as it can be intimidating. You must come back to Paris, so we can finally meet!! : )

  8. Have a wonderful weekend and visit with your mum. So exciting to be doing wedding plans with her. This is such a special thing between mother and daughter..

    Sorry about the weather, I probably brought it with me from England!

    Love Denise
