paris is not for everyone

but for those who love her, oooh la la, it’s like soul food!

bonjour tous! my feet are on the ground and so is my suitcase (merci dios). who couldn’t love a city who pays  a pretty lady to pass out lilies of the valley welcoming visitors at the airport? (apparently a tradition since 1541 at the ports)!  i’ve been reading a lot lately about people rolling their eyes when someone says they’re going to paris again…but she’s like an old friend you just have to see once in awhile.

i tried to nap to no avail. my partner in crime from miami is here, linda from parisen salon, so i’m off to rendezvous.  finally  got the internet connection working so i’ll be back soon with what’s up! more soon and have a great weekend!

ps you can’t crack a magazine without eye candy! these are new from christian louboutin…my days are about to get pretty schelppy and grungy so they’re just a dream, but a beautiful dream nonetheless!

May 1, 2010. Paris.

    I was just there last week. Don’t miss the YSL and Hermes exhibitions. Try to have diner at Le Vieil Ami which belongs to the restauant group of star chef Antoine Westermann. We had beautiful food there (69 Rue Saint Louis en l’ile). Enjoy!

    And to think I have to wait five months to see this “friend.” Oh, well …

    Nevertheless, I am into HEELS with a passion, so you’ve struck a chord.

    Have a wonderful visit!

    Had a fab time with you aujourd’hui wandering the streets of Montmartre, the Marais and the 5th. Wish we had more time to do some real damage. Ne c’est pas?

    A bientôt, mon amie … jusqu’à retour à Miami.
