Resources

Café in the Jardin du Palais Royal
I like to think of my site as a resource for readers but I also follow a number of expat blogs and travel websites that offer helpful tips on expat life, restaurants, shops or travel in Paris and France as a whole. Below you'll find some of my favorite places, regular reads and personal resources in design and food. This food and drink list is by no means exhaustive so follow me on Instagram and Twitter for highlights from my dining adventures.
