WIN A WEEKEND AT HOTEL PARADIS PARIS

July 7th, 2014

winaweekendinhotelparadis

Last November I went to Paris and stayed at the beautiful Hôtel Paradis. A hotel in an upcoming neighborhood where I slept in a room that really felt like home. From the cozy lobby with the beautiful sofa to the great big bed in my room. The interior, done by Dorothée Meilichzon is stunning! I got a lot of response from people who have been there and they all enjoyed it just as much as I did. With the biggest compliment that it is the ideal base to discover the city – because you are so close to le Marais, Canal Saint Martin, as well as spots like Paris New York hamburgers and Cafe Le Pinson II. In short: a must if you go to Paris!

And the good news is that we’ve (Hôtel Paradis and Petite Passport) teamed up so that you can win a weekend in this wonderful hotel! A weekend in August so you can soak up the beautiful summer days in Paris and after that you can enjoy one of the unique rooms in the hotel – or that beautiful sofa in the lobby with one of the books the owner buys at Ofr. But nobody is stopping you if you want to stay in the room for the weekend. Can you already imagine being there? (Want to read more about Hôtel Paradis, see my Tried & Tested review here)

To win this weekend at Hôtel Paradis for 2 persons it’s very easy: Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: CUISSE DE GRENOUILLE PARIS

November 29th, 2013

cuissedegrenouilleparis

Most striking feature:

The wooden interior is shaped like a wave. Cuisse de Grenouille is a brand from Paris for, as they like to call it, the gentleman surfer. A man who loves to surf, but also has that cool Parisian vibe. And even if you don’t surf, you will love their items. I’ve spotted a cool hoodie which was made out of a towel from inside. If you come out of the water you can directly put it on and you will be dry in a few seconds. Their board shorts not only look good and colorful but Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: LIBERTÉ PARIS

November 28th, 2013

Liberte Paris

Most striking feature:

This is one of the most beautiful bakeries I’ve ever seen in my life. When I was at Holybelly last week the owner told me I should really check out the new spot called Liberté. It was only open for two days so everything was new but that didn’t stopped the people from coming. From pain au chocolat to freshly baked baguettes and from tarts to other delicious pastries: they were sold like it was Isabel Marant’s collection for H&M on the first day. Maybe that’s because famous pastry chef Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: CENTRE COMMERCIAL KIDS PARIS

November 28th, 2013

centrecommercialkids

Most striking feature:

There’s an elephant in the shop. Tell that to your kids and they will definitely want to go shopping with you. Next to that the shop is full of beautiful clothes from brands like Mini Rodini, Petit Bateau, OEuf and Bobo Choses. They also sell shoes, books, the immensely popular coloring plate of the world and they organise workshops on Wednesday afternoon. So the kids can learn how to make Christmas decorations or how to bake from Christophe Vasseur from the famous bakery Du Pain et Des Idées. The owners of the shoe brand Veja decided to open Centre Commercial (for adults) a few years ago and the stylish people who shop there were having babies and asked them frequently: ‘can’t you open a Centre Commercial kids, so I have a place to go for cool kidswear too?’ So they did. What Read more…

brutparis

Most striking feature:

A small but cool thing I see on several places during my travels are the maritime mugs. I’ve spotted them at Folklore in London and at the new Le Brut Paris restaurant they were hanging above the bar and the name of the place was printed on it. Brut is a new place close to subway station Bourse and it’s open for lunch and dinner. The restaurant has Read more…
