Arrived safe and sound in the City of lights but I was sick the first few days. Seems like I developed allergies the minute the plane landed in Paris. Nevertheless, I wanted to give you a quick recap of Week 1, my next few entries will be much more exciting!
Started off my journey with a beauty essential, Clinique’s Moisture surge face spray – Thirsty Skin Relief. A long journey on the plane can really leave your skin thirsty for moisture so I kept spraying it and my skin felt great during the plane ride and when I arrived in Paris.
My first stop after visiting my local pharmacist for some medication and getting some rest to beat the jet lag was to one of Coco & I’s favourite store in Paris, Merci. Merci is one of those stores you can spend hours in while browsing the beautiful furniture, clothes, books and more.
Did a little shopping and by coincidence (sure…) the sales in Paris started this week. What’s great about France is that the law dictates a precise date where every retailers must put their merchandise on sale for 4 weeks, twice a year. Fair game for everyone!
Sales here feel like a National Holiday as the French take it very seriously….
Walked everyday for a minimum of 2 hours so I could work off these calories
Finally started to get hot here so I obviously had to cool off with some of the best ice cream in
Paris, Mary’s Gelato.
Finally, I feel like I’ve slept more in the last week than I have in the last 6 months. Cheers to being in vacation mode!
If you’re in Canada, wishing you all a happy and safe long weekend!
Bisous from Paris,

Hey Winy, Love your post and it definitely makes me one to pick up my suitcase and go!! Paris OUI-OUI…. Keep on updating us on Paris and your fabulous shopping!
Thanks so much! Paris is certainly a city of discoveries, no matter how many times you’ve been here and of course, the shopping…to die for !
In which arrondissement are you staying? Which company did you use for apartment rental?
The apartment where I always stay is located in the 5th district, I have the privileged to have access to it. We do rent the apartment and if you’re interested you can email me at email@example.com.
Also, you can check out airbnb.com or roomorama.com, two of the many websites where Parisian apartments are posted.
Take care, Winy
