We'll always have Paris...

I live on the South West coast of La France. By the beach, surrounded by great vineyards and (unfortunately for my bikini body) even better boulangeries! It's a stunning place to be, but for me the heart of france is Paris. With it's streets winding through the city, like vines of ivy weaving their way around an old house, I manage to find a hidden gem at every turn. If you are lucky enough to make it to Paris this fall then don't miss La Nuit Blanche. It is a very special day and night when some of the enchanting museums and galleries of Paris open their doors for 24 uninterrupted hours of culture and art viewing. Below are some images and artists inspired by the wonder of Paris...enjoy :)

Don't you wish you could be Maral Sassouni sitting in a quaint cafe not far off the Eifel Tower, sketching away as the city, oblivious to your admiration, bustles around you.

You can't go to Paris and not lingerie shop. Sketched or photographed, I want it all! Christian Dior Bra illustrated by Cocopit.

           Can I have the bag and the illustration! Laura Laine is an amazing illustrator, see for yourself...
