OUR TRIP TO PARIS

man, where do i even begin? paris is always the city that makes me feel the most inspired, the most awestruck, the most wide-eyed, the most happy. each time i have visited has been very different, but also very the same. we were a part of the creative council team for this trip…which allowed us to wander around, explore and film/document the whole thing and then share our favorite spots with you. i really love a brand that is open to change, open for exploration and of course allows creative freedom. (stay tuned for the video we made that i’m posting on thursday!)

let’s start with this little gem of an apartment, shall we? it’s small but they maximized the space and fixed it up real nice. it’s in the perfect spot in le marais on rue de rosiers…tons of cafes, bars and shops right below us.

renting an apartment you just never know what you are going to get….i was pleasantly surprised that for under $180 a night we could stay here and it felt like a hotel! clean, safe, beautiful views, a skylight, nice appliances & bathroom. it was a total score.apt

i met arian on our front doorstep (i was coming from london and him from LA) paris always feels a little like a fairytale when you get there, but waiting for your guy to come around the corner with his luggage somehow felt extra fairytale-like. with him being jet lagged we decided to just eat ravioli and enjoy the rain from our comfy room and do the whole tourist thing the next day.

use this map to bookmark some of our spots from our trip! thanks so much for creating it, asia!

our first morning we slept in and then walked to café charlot for eggs benedict and a cafe creme. this café is very cute (and has free wifi which is always a plus when traveling abroad for those of you that go through instagram withdrawals.)

we decided to go to this street rue montorgueil (where my friend jordan took us when i visited with jen last year!) to pick up some flowers for the apartment, cheese & cornichons, and of course a baguette for a picnic on  Île Saint-Louis later in the afternoon. we also had to stop by one of the most delicious patisseries, maison collet, to get a few chocolate eclairs for dessert. the sun was shining and it was beautiful.

we headed towards the river for our picnic, but it started to rain so we just ducked inside of the restaurants on the saint-louis island and shared a bottle of wine and a goat cheese salad. they always say the waiters are rude in france…generally i would say if you at least attempt french and you’re polite then they are pretty nice to you. the guy at this restaurant was an exception, he hated us from the start. you just have to laugh it off though.

we strolled back to our apartment to rest from all the walking around (and the wine.)

i was excited to take arian that evening to one of my favorite restaurants in paris, le refuge des fondues in montmartre (remember this post?) where the wine is served in baby bottles and you eat endless amounts of cheese. we met angela there and it was pretty packed (go early!) but we managed to get the last couple seats in the place. this is the spot where you have to climb on the tables to get to your seat, so get comfortable with eating community style…elbows to elbows. next door there is a little hole in the wall bar where we ended up meeting some of the locals and dancing to french music (you have to watch the video for this, it’s pretty funny.)

and the metro home…right under our apartment is the famous falafel place, L’As du Fallafel, that we kept hearing about. so even though we were stuffed from fondue we decided to split a falafal sandwich to see what all the hype was about (this place had a line out the door almost all day) we aren’t huge falafel people, but this was impressive. quick, cheap and delicious. it was a good night.

the next morning we really wanted to go to merci for “dipping eggs” as arian calls them at their cafe & tea room. they also have a salted butter there that i think about all the time and admittedly put in my purse if i don’t finish the whole thing. we have a lot of happy memories at this cafe, so it was nice to go back together. if you don’t know about merci, it’s incredible. (a commenter just told me they have a new online store that ships to this US! thanks for the heads up.) they have a store in addition to the cafe that is filled with all sorts of greatness. (most of it, i can’t afford, but hey) if you are able to, splurge on the bed linens (or at least the pillow cases!) and have a look upstairs at all the amazing tapes and journals. i would buy all my dishes there if i could too. last time i was here i was shopping next to sarah jessica parker which obviously made me feel like i was in a sex and the city episode and that her russian lova was just around the corner. i picked up a few treats and we were on our way.

i have been to paris a couple of times, so i was cool with skipping the louvre and the eiffel tower…although it’s still nice to watch it light up from afar! but we did decide to go to the Musée d’Orsay because arian wanted to check out an exhibit they had on demons at the time (it’s called compromise) and i wanted to see the post-impressionist paintings. it’s awesome how different arian and i are when it comes to art…i love bright, large brushstrokes, more abstract & graphic art. he loves intricate, dark, and scary paintings. men are from mars :)

a little worn out from the museum we were starving and decided to take the metro to bastille for pasta. a little note about the metro: it’s amazing here. i always feel like i know exactly where i am going, the lines are clear and easy to navigate…it’s the best. we dined at a spot called pause cafe and oh my gosh it was the most memorable meal i had in paris.

i got the linguini pasta with pesto and arian got the penne with marinera. cooked to perfection, a bread basket, a glass of wine, people watching on the sidewalk…i couldn’t stop smiling.

that evening we decided to just walk around our alleyways and look for an easy spot to eat. after a while you get tired of looking at your phone map, always navigating…you just want to wander. we found a little place that was open late and got french onion soup and blonde beers and headed home. we ended up just watching movie trailers on my laptop in bed (one of my favorite things to do) and then magically remembered that we never ate our chocolate eclairs in the fridge, so that was definitely a highlight. our last night in paris was full of laughing and simple joys.

we heard about a restaurant called breakfast in america around the corner, where they serve diner style food like they do in the states. we love breakfast the most, and while i am fine with how the french do it, a chocolate croissant and a coffee…arian was craving the full shabang. you can get pancakes, waffles, and eggs any style here. he was also pretty stoked about the bottomless cup of jo you can get here because he was a little fed up with the tiny coffees they serve in europe. ha.

i got too cocky with our flight info and didn’t double check it till the afternoon. i realized i read the arrival time in spain instead of the departure time from paris AND it was at an airport that i had never been to before. what? i am usually pretty good about this stuff! i blamed it on the cold medicine, we packed lightning fast, we ran and found a cab, and we somehow made it right on time for our flight to spain.

paris, you will always be my #1. thanks for following along on our journey…

    I need to go back to Paris soon, haven’t been in 5 years, this post is going to push me to get my butt back there for at least a couple of days. Thanks for the great post!!

  • 32. jen  |  April 16th, 2013 at 9:52 am

    Paris is definitely my fave city. I rented an apartment and lived there for a month and enjoyed every second. The food, the museums, the culture. It truly is an inspiring place to be – it feels like you’re in a dream. I’ve already got plans to return for another month rendez vous, looking forward to trying some the of the places you mentioned. That pasta looks KILLER!

    I LOVED the city map… and Merci is just great!

  • 38. Leah  |  April 16th, 2013 at 10:37 am

    My husband and I were in Paris at the end of last year, and I love comparing my trip to yours. Its amazing how many different sides Paris has.
    We would love to go back, and see Paris from a different angle. Would you mind sending the information about the rental apartment? I love the look of it,and the price sounds amazing! We like to stay in rental apartments/b&b’s/boutique hotels whenever we can on our trips.
    Thanks!!

  • 39. Bri  |  April 16th, 2013 at 10:54 am

    beautiful! ah this makes me want to go back so badly! i spent a summer in france right after high school and i always say i’m going to go back. maybe once we stop moving around and have a permanent house. silly marine corps moving us all the time :)

  • 40. Kendra  |  April 16th, 2013 at 11:06 am

    So amazing!! Paris is just something else, isn’t it? I can’t wait to go back.. hopefully soon! The idea of a rental apartment is so enticing! I always love pretending I live where I’m visiting, and the apartment would certainly help :) I laughed when you said that Arian has such different taste in art.. my boyfriend and I took a design class together and his work was always so much more deep and ominous than mine, ha!

  • 41. Monica  |  April 16th, 2013 at 11:35 am

    The trip sounds so inspiring and a very wonderful opportunity.
    I love the interior of the apartment you stayed at. It looks like a place that belongs in a magazine feature. The views are also magnificent.
    Wine in a baby bottle? Now that’s something you don’t see every day.

  • 42. Morgane  |  April 16th, 2013 at 11:39 am

    Oh Shoot! If only I knew you were there… I work in this area (the Marais), if I know you would have been there I would have gave away few nice spots to go to. Café Charlot is sure is nice but pricy and not very good in comparaison to other places around such as Rose Bakery (and their amazing – everything), Nanashi, even Poilane and the list goes on…
    Did you take a walk in “Le Marché des Enfants Rouges”, it is simply amazing?

    I’m happy you had such a lovely time:)

  • 50. Cassandra  |  April 16th, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    When I was in Paris, I didn’t fully enjoy it (maybe because I was there for a guy I liked who ditched me for another chick, maybe because I had to do summer school homework the whole time), but looking back, It was a great experience and I wish I could go back! Anyway, Paris is like everywhere else when it comes to waiters, you get good ones and you get bad ones, and like you, I tend to find that they’re kind on the most part, even when I didn’t speak a lick of French. And yes! I’m a fan of their metro. Though I didn’t read up on it too much before I went and I was alone the entire time I was there, I never EVER got lost in their metro system. It was like the subway for dummies (because I totally got on NYC’s subway the wrong way more than once). Merci for the wonderful post!

  • 51. Charley  |  April 16th, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    I went there just the other week and pretty much did all these things (bar the baby bottle restaurant, the other half was having none of that!). We stayed in an apartment on the charming ile st louis so funny that you mentioned the restaurant and that they were rude. We heard that complaint quite a bit, strangely though mainly from Americans – go figure!

    I also highly rate Bouillon Chartier if you are looking for a traditional Parisian bistro – it’s bustling and great affordable food but again, huge queues so go early!

    Hi Bri,
    I was amazed to read about your trip in Paris, as I’m a parisian. It’s cute to read about all the different places you’ve been in as I know them too and wonder if we could have met there!
    I would be delighted to send you some ideas where to go to have amazing french food, and to visit some nice and more secret places.
    And, I just come to think of it, I would be delighted to let you meet some friend of mine that are french photograph , that I’m sure you would love to meet and discuss with :)
    Hope you’ll enjoy a trip in Paris again very soon.

    So nice to hear what visitors do when they come to paris! Many places you mention, I also love, and I totally understand what you mean about a good breakfast! Sometimes you need more than just a pastry…when that happens, I head to Eggs & Co in the 6th.It’s a great little spot (upstairs even looks like it used to be an old chicken coop), and the breakfast and brunch are fantastic. For a weekend brunch, make sure you grab a reservation tho: http://www.eggsandco.fr/. The neighborhood is so cute, that you’ll love wandering it for hours! Hope you enjoy your next trip back to Paris!
