Le quatorze juillet- Bastille Day! (Dans les Jardins des Tuileries, photo above by yours truly.)
Vive la france- l’endroit de mon coeur. ♥
My affinity for children’s books and their illustration runs deep, so it is with excitement that I can announce my new favorite not-entirely-for-kids character, Monsieur Boudin, created by San Francisco graphic design duo Lab Partners! Monsieur is a dachshund who loves Paris…
I challenge you to not fall in love with Monsieur.
Is there anything more scrumptious than Chuck Bass in Paris?
No. No, there is not. Hello, my name is Amy, I’m in my thirties, and I love Gossip Girl’s fashion. (There will be no further confessions today, thankyouverymuch!)
Ahh, springtime in Paris… trés charmant, n’est-ce pas?
Illustration by Illustrista. J’adore!
"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." -Ernest Hemingway
I’m longing, momentarily, for a little getaway in my favorite city; preferably ensconced in a room like this one, designed by the one and only Jacques Grange!
Vespa 400 micro car.
The Vespa 400 was a rear-engined micro car, produced by ACMA (Ateliers de construction de motocycles et d’automobiles) in Fourchambault, France, from 1957 to 1961 to the designs of the Italian Piaggio company. Two different versions were sold, “Lusso” and “Turismo”.
Okay, okay; no hauling camping gear, or big trips to IKEA. But come on- how adorable (can a car be adorable?!) is this blue vision? It’s love at first sight!

And, please… no blaming Guy for Drakkar, everyone’s entitled to a misstep or two. ;)
