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.

Amazing shopping experience!

My daughter and I just got back from an fabulous shopping tour with Linda. The experience was fabulous from start to finish. Linda communicated with me via email and WhatsApp and she asked lots of questions about both me and my daughter’s style and our shopping needs and wants. She went above and beyond to help make the experience amazing. She took us to stores where she had hand picked items for both of us. Shopping in Paris can be overwhelming especially with a picky teen, but Linda really delivered. She also gave us great shopping recommendations for the rest of our day. Highly recommend her services!!!!
Incredible afternoon with a true local fashion expert

Our afternoon with Linda was absolutely fantastic, and one we’ll never forget! We all (daughters 11, 14, and myself) found special items we are so excited about, and never would’ve found the fantastic clothes or brands she pointed out to us if it weren’t for her. She gave us advice on what worked and what didn’t, helped bridge the language barrier, and made 3 hours fly by. I would (hopefully will!) do it again in a heartbeat!!

Incredible afternoon with a true local fashion expert

Linda hosted a Fashionista Experience for me, my 13YO and our 22YO friend. She has the best personality and style ideas. Her kindness and professionalism with my family and with store personnel was so very impressive as was her rapport with the saleswomen in the stores. Of our 10 days in Paris, this was one of our favorite outings and so different than anything else we did. No pressure to buy and such an in-depth knowledge of the area. When we ran out of time, she walked us by all the other places she didn't want us to miss. What a gem. Book her while you can.

A fabulous shopping spree!

My favorite part was our guide, Linda! she was so kind and professional. She worked so well with both my granddaughters. They thought she was terrific. She understood their existing styles and preferences but then added tips and encouragement to update their current looks. Going shopping with Linda was my granddaughter's favorite part of the trip!
