Paris, je t'aime

It's at this time of year thoughts should turn to Paris...as we dream of leaving behind frosty mornings and too many layers, the best place to escape to when the weather becomes a little more spring-like has to be the City of Lights.

With a two year old and a new shop I doubt we'll be seeing Paris this year while the cherry blossoms are still on the trees, but as a bit of a Francophile I have made up for this, just a little, by making sure we have plenty of Paris themed pieces for sale...

From the best Paris shopping books which show you behind the hidden doorways you never imagined were open to the public, to fabulous vintage charms reworked into stylish Parisian necklaces and brooches showing the Moulin Rouge or simply saying "Oui".

We have Cavallini & Co notebooks which are the best way to record your own travel experiences so you always have a reference of the best restaurant or most fabulous shop you found for next time you go. Some even have pockets to keep those special metro tickets or cafe receipts. We also have the pretty tins of Paris glittered postcards which we all agree are too nice to send through the post and should be hung on walls...a big poster showing the old Paris arrondissements and of course a big Eiffel Tower one too.

My favourite landmark also makes an appearance in Tokyo Milk's big bottle of 'Bubbling Bath' on pocket mirrors and in the little bottles of Eau de Parfum.

In short, if you love Paris - you'll love our Frenchie themed picks.
