Apartment Living in Paris

fendi-backpack

Hi Everyone, ๐Ÿ™‚

I am sharing this last post from Paris wih you all. Our trip to Paris this time was unlike any other trips we have had. While travelling all these years and staying at some of the most gorgeous hotels in the world, we somewhere developed a craving for staying in an apartment..just the way locals do. It was very fascinating for both of us. It’s like unveling the secrets behind those gorgeous French Balconies. ๐Ÿ˜› We wanted to travel slow, not really be bothered about visiting at every hot point in the city and just taking each day as it comes. And we did that and it was one of the most amazing things ever. I mean we won’t be doing that all the time but every once in a while. It’s like having a home away from home. It was very comforting. So today I am want to share the details of where we stayed, how we managed and what were the challenges we faced.

We stayed at Jean Charles Apartment loft at Les Marais. We found it through Air Bnb. It was such a lovley , airy and spacious apartment. Probably my living room here in India is as big as the whole apartment we had in Paris. ๐Ÿ˜› But it was airy, spacious, well maintained, and just very cute. The hosts were so nice. The kitchen was pretty spacious. We had a cute dining table. Oh! The bathroom had no doors. It reminded me of our hotel in Spain.:P The bathroom was separated by a wall. If you are not really staying there with your partner, I would not recommend it. They provided us with fresh towels and sheets weekly. In kitchen you had everything – kettle, dishwasher, oven, utensils..You had a washing machine, dryer and iron downstairs. If you needed anything, you would alwys message the hosts and they were always helpful. I mean I could go on and on! The area was gorgeous. Monoprix (their department cum food store) was right nextdoor. The street had the most gorgeous restaurants and coffee shops. That area was famous for its restaurants so it was always buzzing with people. There were loveliest vintage stores, nail salons, museum and books shops in that area. Sometimes we cooked at home, sometimes we used to go downstairs to eat and just walk around.. You know it was like a new day every day. No plans. Just work, relax, enjoy wyourself and plan as you go. ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue reading

Wish You All a Very Happy Diwali :)

diwali-2016-outfit-2
Hi Everyone, ๐Ÿ™‚
Wish you alll a very Happy Diwali. I am terribly missing my family this time around.Anyway, I’d crib some other time about this some other time. It’s a festive day and it just deserves all happy vibes. I very proudly wore this outfit complete with the nath to shoot this outfit. I am sure I left a lot of French people confused. A lot of them give me weird looks and a lot of them gave me a warm smile. I couldn’t care about being stared. It’s our Diwali, I am far from my family so I would do whatever I want to do man! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› I even lit a little diya. ๐Ÿ˜› The only thing I knew about my Diwali outfit was that I wanted to wear this nath and the rest followed. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you all have an amazing Diwali. Light a candle for me too and eat an extra sweet from my side as well. :)) I will talk to you all very soon. BIG HUG! Continue reading

Walk Beside Me! :)

paris-winter-fashion-2016
Hi Everyone, ๐Ÿ™‚
How are you guys doing? It’s getting quite rainy and cold here in Paris. The greyer Paris is getting, the more colorful my makeup and clothes are getting. I am having a bit of fun in adding the contrast. ๐Ÿ˜€

I wore this oversized vintage cape on a rather sunny day a few days back. It is massive and you could get lost in it. I loved it the moment I saw it at a vintage boutiqueย here. There is a little scarf attached to it and there is a faux leather piping all around it. The color red reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood. ๐Ÿ˜› I quite enjoy wearing it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have found quite a few cute little boutiques here this time around. There are also little Sunday Markets that happen here. You could pick up small trinkets, souvenirs, fresh veggies / fruits, chocolates, bags etc. from there. I guess the idea of slow travel is amazing. You tend to notice things that you miss when you are in a hurry to visit all the hot spots of the city. But I think the real essence of city is hidden in the most unexpected places. Of course you HAVE to see the best of the best of every place. But Iย think a few days should be reserved just for you and your loved ones where you spend time with them just sitting at some cafe, enjoying a cup of coffee and talking about things that matter …or may be not. ๐Ÿ™‚

Got a bit philosophical right? Catch up with you all soon. ๐Ÿ™‚ How are your preps for Diwali going on? Tell me all about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Loooads of love! mwaaahh!ย  Continue reading

Hi Everyone, ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is my Karvachauth outfit. I haven’t worn a yellow Indian wear in a long time so thought I’d pick one this time. Absolutely loveed this one by Mishru. It’s heavy but not crazy heavy to wear on a day when you literally have zero energy. ๐Ÿ˜€ I paired it with these handcrafted earrings and pink potli. I hope you all got dressed up today to celebrate the big day. I am kind of missing all the festivities around. But oh well! i have you all to share it with. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s around 7ish here so still 2 hours to open my fast. I hope you had an abbbsolute fabbulous one. Stay blessed and happy always. Loooooads of love! :-*

PS: So I walked the streets of Paris looking for the moon. Got a ton of stares. Sanjeev was getting a bit conscious but I think I was rather enjoying myself. I told him my lehega totally deserves the streets of Paris. ๐Ÿ˜› I loved it! hihi Continue reading

Time You Enjoyed Wasting Was Not Wasted

Hi Everyone, ๐Ÿ™‚
How have you all been? ๐Ÿ™‚ Sanjeev and I are enjoying the slow Parisian life here in Paris and honestly, we could not ask for more. This is probably my most favourite trip to Paris so far. I think the reason we are taking everything so slow I am noticing more and more of this city. The people, the stunning architecture, the Parisian cafes, and just about everything is so inspiring for me this time around. I am overwhelmed with the whole vibe Sanjeev and I have for this trip. It’s slow, calm, and extremely inspiring. There is so much I want to do, change, create and be thankful for. I am finding it hard to put in words. May be it’s the city or may be it’s the process of growing up, I know that I am probably in an amazing phase of my life and every bit of gratefulย for it. It’s a little rant I wanted to write, not sure what you guys would make of it. But that’s Faux Pas for me. It’s where Iย pour my heart out. ๐Ÿ™‚

I picked up my first Celine RTW pieces and from here on, I only want to have a wardrobe full of clothes from the brand. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I might just bore you by restyling both the trench and massively oversized-cuffs shirtย again and again. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Have a fab week ahead all of you. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d share more pics very very soon. Stay tuned. Looooads of love! Mwaaaahh!!ย  Continue reading
