    Café de la Régence

    What a cold night this was. The great thing about Paris is that you don’t have to sacrifice being outside for staying warm. With the heaters above the tables, you can sit outside even during the winter. We decided to stop by Café de la Régence. Many say it’s good place to stop by after visiting the Louvre. We didn’t visit the Louvre but we just needed somewhere to warm up and drink hot chocolate. The hot chocolate here was so cute as it was in the shape of a flower as seen below. If I remember correctly, the hot chocolate had a cute name as well. Oh how I…

    Dear Paris, This recent trip was the second time I visited you and unlike in March, walking your streets in late November was a no-no for me. There was no snow yet and there was no autumn breeze. Instead, there was a lot of rain, harsh coldness, and grey skies. However, I’m judging you based off of only 5 days of being there. The great thing was that you made me thankful for a lot of things.

    Many ask what is the secret to French women’s skincare. Well, the secret is simple. Don’t use too many products and definitely don’t spend a fortune on them. Just go to your local pharmacy. When TSS visited Paris back in March, we knew that la pharmacie was the place to go for beauty products. Oh and we did visit Yves Rocher as well. Who could resist their fruity scents? But back to the pharmacy. One of the most popular brands we couldn’t get enough of was Nuxe in Rêve de Miel. Our favorite product was the Nuxe Huile Prodigiuese. It’s a plant-based and Vitamin E oil for the face, body, and hair. It’s…

    They say that you’ve become fluent in a language when you know how to speak slang. This isn’t always true since nowadays you can just google the terms or come to a site like this. However, learning slang terminology does make you seem more aware and knowledgable in regards to travel and language. Learning a new term shows that you did your homework.

    The Beautiful Fall

    I’m currently reading The Beautiful Fall by Alicia Drake. I have to say that it’s a great book if you want to get to know more about Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, and Morocco. I love when it talks about Yves Saint Laurent fascination with Morocco’s culture and also his love story with Pierre Biergé.
