Life and Times

Recommended Reading: All Hallows’ Eve

I’m not one for horror. In fact, my list of what I personally consider scary is probably akin to that of a six-year-old. Don’t ask me to screen your favorite Tarantino with you or binge-watch Stranger Things or spend the evening at Knott’s Scary Farm. In fact, I will need to get...

A note on stasis

You know what you shouldn’t do when you’re trapped in a holding pattern, and you’re sure of…absolutely nothing other than your cat’s undying love? You should not binge-watch The Good Wife.  For the past few weeks while waiting for news of my PhD application, I’ve lived and...

Montmartre Coffeeshops

I’m unabashedly passionate about cafés. Spend five minutes with me, and you’ll know I thrive on the buzz of a good flat white in the company of perfect strangers. If you live with a pet, you too will know the perpetual distraction of trying to work with soft paws batting at your ankles...

Two Eves (and other weekend reads)

It’s been awhile, I know…blogging regularly just isn’t in me. I’m working on it. A lot has changed since I last wrote about life in Paris. Against all odds, I managed to score a B2 on the TCF French exam last May, which led to a last-minute scramble to apply to the Sorbonne...

Paris Flea Markets

As a self-proclaimed vintage aficionado, I love trawling flea markets for old school treasures. Moving to Paris didn’t end the obsession—rather, it gave me access to even older finds.

Some French It Girls (and other weekend reads)

This week has been full of beginnings! I joined a new library, got back on track with eating healthy and making time to work out, and worked on my french in the evenings. My desire to improve my language skills comes in bursts. It sounds absolutely terrible, but there are days (weeks, months...

Instagram Girl Gang

I’m borderline obsessed with Instagram. I’m a Millennial—I can’t help it! Generational stereotypes aside, Instagram gives you the world at your fingertips. I’ve loved discovering cool corners of Paris, new art expos, magazines, and other creatives and entrepreneurs around the world. I’ve been...

Tasting Americana in Paris

Who would travel all the way to Paris to eat American fare?! For expats, however, there are moments when a warm baguette and baked camembert just won’t cut it. The only solution is BBQ, STAT.
