Bloomin’ Paris! How to enjoy a Parisian Spring ♥

Paris is simply wonderful-and, as anyone who’s encountered them knows, so are flowers.
Their vivid colors and luscious scents have an irresistible beauty that prompts us to fill our surroundings with them, a symbol of nature’s finesse.
Spring, or printemps, is the magical time of year when flowers settle in Paris; the beauty already present is enhanced by them, adding brightness to a previous gloomy capital.
They’re not going to be around forever, though, so why not make the most of their stay and enjoy what they have to offer? Thus, here are some suggestions on spending a flower-filled printemps.
Flower Tasting:

Café Pouchkine‘s specialty, the Rose du Tsar, features a creamy, fruit-infused sphere surrounded by chocolate rose petals. Enjoy it on the terrace seats (in the midst of the grands magasins) with some Orange Blossom tea.
Ladurée’s pack of candied violets are perfect for a casual floral snack.
Hediard’s Rose Petal Jelly complements a crepe, croissant or a piece of French toast deliciously.
– Flavor your coffees and yoghurts with some honey from La Maison du Miel; the Lavender Honey is exquisite.

Wearing Floral:

– Head to Cacharel for airy blouses and dresses-the ideal Spring wardrobe- made in romantic floral print fabric.
– Pick up a fresh bouquet from Rambert Rigaud Fleuriste en Herbe to match the day’s outfit.
– Smell like the prettiest flower with perfumes from Les Parfums de Rosine, a small perfumerie that specializes in Rose-based scents.
– Splurge on Camellia-adorned sandals from, of course, Chanel. The white Camellia flower (also seen on Chanel shopping bags) was Coco Chanel’s favorite flower.

Flower Fields:

– The Jardin des Plantes, located in the Quartier Latin, houses myriad species of flowers in every type, form and color. The garden also boasts a menagerie and a labyrinth on site, ideal for a playful afternoon.
– The Promenade Plantée in Bastille is, like the name suggests, the go-to place for a flower-filled walk, a narrow road of nature built atop an old railroad track. Make sure to catch its rows of cherry blossom trees in bloom!
– Take a day trip to Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon in Versailles: the English-style garden, together with the farmhouses and swans, will make for an idyllic afternoon.
– Of course, the Jardin du Luxembourg and Jardins des Tuileries cannot be forgotten! A place to see and be seen, put your best fashion game forward when visiting these historic and picturesque gardens.

I love absolutely everything

"Often, when I go out with the intention of buying new clothes, I end up wandering around for hours and not finding anything I really love. Because my time in Paris was limited, I wanted to make the best use of what little opportunity I had for shopping. Enter Linda, who-in just 3 hours-helped me select a range of gorgeous new clothes and accessories, I love absolutely everything I bought. My time with her was an absolute joy: she is very relaxed and easy to chat with, and she really listens to your opinions and steers you towards the things you will like. If only all shopping was this easy!"

"This was my first personal shopping experience on a trip to Paris so I wasn't sure what to expect, but was soon pul al case by the warm and friendly Linda... After wearing one of my new outfits back in London. several people have commented that I had a 'French chic look going on! It was the look I'd asked Linda for, so it seems to be working! Highly recommended - and I'll definitely be back for more!"

"We had such a productive two hours with Linda! My daughter is very petite for her age (14 years old, almost 5'2" and 90 lbs). It is hard for her to find clothes in styles popular in her age group and I was worried that our Paris shopping would be frustrating. I am so glad we booked Linda! We sent her some samples of styles my daughter liked as well as the types of items we were interested in purchasing. Linda mapped out stores and actual items in advance. And she was good at identifying potential options on the fly too. In two hours we got a dress, two pairs of jeans, some slides and two tops that my daughter loves! In every store Linda would quickly ask the salespeople for the smallest sizes and then my daughter would quickly make a call on what she wanted to try. Very efficient! Linda comes from a family in the fashion business and earlier in the day had helped a bride from the U.S. select her couture wedding gown. She is versatile for sure! Thank you Linda for this great highlight of our trip to Paris!"

Amazing Personal Shopping Experience in Paris
Read More
"My 13 year old daughter and I had a wonderful morning with Linda. We walked around the Marais area and Linda introduced us to many shops and boutiques. Linda quickly understood what my daughter style is and what she prefers and offered her different and unique items at every store. My daughter is typically not an easy shopper :) but Linda was able to find her multiple beautiful items that she loved and we purchased (all within the budget we pre-defined before starting). We even got one item for me (although this was not our focus this time ...). Linda also helped us to quickly receive the tax refund forms at the different stores we visited. Overall it was an amazing experience which my daughter really enjoyed and marked as one of the highlights of our Paris visit."

"Linda took my daughter and I and another friend and her daughter shopping and it was just perfect. She chose ideal spots for the teenagers and great spots for myself and my friend (we are in our early 50s). She's kind, patient, and thoughtful and really tries to make sure everyone finds what they need/ I also loved that she wasn't pushy with us buying things. She made me feel very comfortable to say you know this is not right for me. I love the shoes I got on our trip and the jeans and my daughter had the best time. This is a really special experience. My only suggestion would be that if you are shopping for teens and grownups to try to add more time because 2 hours was not enough for us! It's a great experience -- hope you enjoy it too!"
