Take me to Paris: French Edition

I am dreaming of Paris these days, two months before my first trip to France - I am so excited so I'm dedicating this blog post to all things French. J'adore Paris!

The closest I've gotten to the French is a wonderful trip to the city of Quebec in Canada. My husband loves to tell the story of how I pretended to understand French while we were there because I thought all I had to say was "oui oui" and smile, to waiters, to shop assistants and so forth. It worked so well for a few days until I purchased a top at a store and while paying for the item, I responded to the sales assistant's question by saying "oui" and she just stared at me while I waited for her to process the sale. Then she asked the same question and I responded the same way and I said "oui" and just stood there.... She then said in English "do you want to try the shirt on because we don't do refunds here"... and boy did I get embarrassed! I was caught out! 

Anyways I'm going to be practising a few phrases before my trip to France this time - lesson learnt!

Here are some French and Parisian delights to share with you today. Enjoy x.

French Themed Coffee Table Books

I love pretty books! The Little Paris Cookbook may be more than a coffee table book when I become a more enthusiastic cook but it does look delightful and the recipes are apparently simple and authentic so I'm putting it on my wish list.  The author, Rachel Khoo also has a great blog to check out which features some posts on life in Paris, it is worth checking out here

The Christian Louboutin book looks gorgeous but I would have to put it in a clear box to protect it from my two year old if I ever actually left it on the coffee table because its on the pricey side... A girl can dream though...
