Gift Guide 2018-2019

Holiday season is coming up: I know I’m kind of last minute with Christmas gift guide, but I thought, hey, there is still New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, you name it. We all know how overwhelming and stressful it can be even though it totally does not have to. That’s why I decided to take the weight off your shoulders and created this Gift Guide with different sections and subdivisions to make it as creative and as easy as possible for you to shop. Cheers!

4 French Movies for an Atmospheric Weekend

If you like me enjoy staying in on the weekends, drinking herbal tea and watching movies with some nostalgic vibe, then here are 4 French movies I strongly recommend watching this beautiful Fall.

“Come September you push down the windows you pushed up, take off the sneakers you put on, pull on the hard shoes you threw away last June. People run in the house now like birds jumping back inside clocks. One minute, porches loaded, everyone gabbing thirty to a dozen. Next minute, doors slam, talk stops, and leaves fall off trees like crazy.”

Airbnb VS Hotels

Little pro’s and con’s list (more pro’s to be honest) of why I personally prefer Airbnb over hotels.

I know, I know…hotels have better guarantees and you don’t need to clean your room before checking out (First Hotel Pro), but let’s be honest – hotels do not have souls and they are pretty impersonal and this is First Hotel Con. I like seeing true colors of people and places all the time, and also when I’m on vacation. I love doing not-touristy things when I travel and my vacation motto is “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”.

My very first Airbnb experience was in Paris. I was looking for an apartment that would have this French and especially Parisian character. After hours spent on the website looking for the combo of perfect location, boho artistic chic interior, nice view, and affordable price, lucky me — I found it.

So, let’s continue with a little mixture of Airbnb and Hotels pro’s and con’s.

Ultimate French Playlist

Music is very intimate and opens the door to a person’s soul. Soooo….I decided to start sharing my personally created playlists with you.

Today I present to you my absolutely favorite Ultimate French Playlist. It’s a mixture of cliché and old-school French music, different decades and styles along with some new funky and jazzy songs. Also, you can even find some rap there too. Surprisingly enough it did not take me a long time to find the right songs and put them all together. Every single song that’s in there I truly love and enjoy listening to anytime of the day, week, month, and year. These songs are just like good French wine – they only get better and better over time.

I strongly recommend you to leave your living room window wide open on a sunny Sunday afternoon, pour yourself a glass of rosé and enjoy this playlist full of curiosities. Je vous en prie.
