Swooning with the Sinfonietta Paris Chamber Orchestra.

I was so happy  to receive an invitation to the Sinfonietta Paris Chamber Orchestra night of cocktails on conversations last weekend. Although I don’t know much about classical music every time I hear it being played it moves me in the most peculiar way. It had been some time since I last saw a violinist play Bach at the beautiful Saint Chapelle church and my thirst for beautiful live music was growing stronger.

The poor Bobo- A survival guide to Paris.

Bobo
ˈbəʊbəʊ/
noun
informal

  1. A person having both the values of the counterculture of the 1960s and the materialism of the 1980s; a bourgeois Bohemian.

Combining the free-spirited, artistic rebelliousness of the bohemian beatnik or hippie with the worldly ambitions of their bourgeois corporate forefathers, the Bobo is a comfortable contortion of caring capitalism. ‘It’s not about making money,’ writes Brooks, ‘it’s about doing something you love. Life should be an extended hobby. It’s all about working for a company as cool as you are.’”- The Guardian

Images of love and heartbreak

Je suis pas Paris, Je suis Paix.

-“I am not Paris, I am peace”

This morning we face the aftermaths of last night’s terrifying attacks.

I woke up wondering if it had all been some horrible dream, that I wasn’t sitting by self drinking wine at 4am, talking to the press.

But unfortunately, it was all real.

Paris and Paperwork

I found a new place!

The final straw was the broken washing machine… When I found out they couldn’t fix it for another couple of months I gave in my notice and started looking for a new place ASAP.

Je suis amoureux

Je suis amoureux- I’m in love.

Not with anyone in particular… just quite literally IN love. Surrounded by love -loving this city, loving meeting new and amazing people, loving where I am at.

Deja Vu.

They say that some things are better left in the past. But sometimes, it’s nice to go back now again and reminisce.

Too much fun?

I’m feeling incredibly guilty….

I can probably count on my hand the amount of time I have spoken French this week. I have been so, so bad. It makes me feel totally unproductive and like I am wasting my time here. It’s so easy to spend time with English speaking people, the thought of having to use my brain so much with my French friends becomes a bit of a daunting task.

The food, the food.

 

Sometimes the universe just answers your prayers.

Or perhaps I should say your emails…
