Here are more lovely moments from Paris….

From Shakespeare & Co.

Near the Notre Dame Cathedral, this bookstore is literally stuffed to the ceiling with English-language books.  Most Mondays and Thursdays, there are author nights and other gatherings–the events are listed on their website.  The shop has a rich history of supporting both readers and writers, and is well-known for this inscription on the second floor, “be not inhospitable to strangers lest they be angels in disguise.”

  1. Hello Amy,

    Did you try one of the rose perfume (located with others just after you get to first floor via the stairs) in the House of Guerlain? That was one of the perfume I remember when I was there in New Year! The mister loved the peppery one…

    Please eat more macarons! :D Oh btw, if you will be in Printemps, there is this awesome pâtisserie called Sadaharu Aoki where I would highly recommend you to try their macarons in plum (ume) and green tea (matcha)…oh oh and their matcha adzuki jam is a must try!!!
