>"Une vie Parisienne S’il Vous Plait"

>

One very important fact that I discovered when in Paris, is that the French sure do know how to create an amazing cake… or 5.
This is one of the reasons why I wish I was Parisian! It would be so easy to pop into a little Patisserie, stocked with a friendly atmosphere, nostalgic characteristic and delightful chocolaty and fruity works of art. Whenever I fancied it, I could just go and buy a sculptural cake that resembled a couture hat or fancy building.
I almost felt like I just couldn’t buy one – Yes it was within buying price range, but it was surely too beautiful to be consumed?!

Its true that there are quaint English bakeries who offer similar treats, but in truth, I don’t see them as competition, these aren’t just desert to your lunch, these are Art for tea!




Miss Manon is one of these ‘Haute Patisseries’ as I have now christened them!
Thank you to the kind little lady who let me get in the way of customers and take photos!

    >Oh its Ok you can decorate your room as u like!!! Now I live in my parents' house and I really hate that I can't have my own style all over the place. My mom loves minimal style and I don't! I prefer warm and cosy places to snuggle up by the fireplace etc! Its difficult but I really think that you will make your own place adorable,sometime in the future! So, you live in London? I am soooo jealous! I have been there and I loved it ever since! Its like the most amazing city in the world 🙂 plus, I love the pubs! Are you a student? I must say, I really love your blog and you seem very interesting! Please keep in touch and don't forget about me! ahahah!

    Much looove,
