Paris means a lot to us. We find ourselves wandering it's streets, sitting in it's cafés, relaxing by the seine, or visiting it's museums at least once a year. Being in Paris often restores our inspiration. It keeps us moving forward. This year is different though, cancelling our plans to visit Paris has left us longing for it's charm, it's beauty and it's intellect. We put together a list of ways to bring Paris home, wherever you are.
Some of our fondest memories while in Paris includes daily visits to our local boulangerie for some French pastries. While we're all at home, why not try and recreate some classics, with a healthier twist? Without spending the day walking up and down steps, and rushing for the metro, swapping richer ingredients for lighter, cleaner alternatives are very much welcome. Feel free to swap ingredients with what you have lying around at home and be creative!
We've been obsessed with this group for about a year now, since discovering their music. If ever in the need of a pick me up, listen to one of their mixes or their live Radio station. The epitome of French classic meets a modern fusion of international flavour. Oh so Parisian.
