It’s that time of year…







One of my favorite things around the holidays has always been  to go look at the Christmas windows in NY. I was lucky last year and got to see the windows in NY and in Paris. This year, we won’t be back in NY for the holidays, but I was thrilled to see the widows at Printemps and Galeries Lafayette were up last week when I went by. There is something magical about Christmas windows. This year the ones at Printemps were done by Prada, though I am particularly partial to the stunning ones last year by Dior. I love how the windows combine  fashion and a bit of Christmas magic. I don’t really need to say much, if you can go take a look. I’m going to try and see the ones at Le Bon Marché too before the season is over. Enjoy!

Parc Monceau



My favorite park and one of my favorite places in Paris to take a stroll. Its lovely in autumn with the leaves changing – and every other time of year too.

Autour de Midi…et minuit

On Saturday evening we decided to try out another jazz club. Its becoming a bit of a weekend ritual it seems – no complaints from me! There are certainly plenty of jazz clubs in Paris to try.  We headed over to Montmarte to Autour de Midi…et minuit to hear Stephane SEVA Quartet.

The venue was a cozy little cave. It was definitely an intimate little venue so pretty much everyone who found a seat had a good view. The band played a mixture of music – from Frank Sinatra to Ray Charles, along with Calude Nougaro and Fats Waller. The band definitely enjoyed themselves and even had a guest singer join them for a few songs in the second and third sets.

I’m not sure we’ve found our ‘place’ yet, but Autour de Midi is definitely worth a visit. With live music on Tuesdays through Saturday, I’m sure we’ll head back sometime.
