Waking up in Paris is one of my favourite things in the world. If only I could do it more often than for just a few days a year!
It`s well known that Parisians are very fond of the neighbourhood they live in and I was just thinking that, if I ever lived in Paris, mine would definitely be the 10th. There is no other place in Paris to suit me better.
Talking (read: fantasizing) about living in Paris, here is what a common Saturday would look like for me!
* * *
As my favourite boulangerie in the area – Du Pain et des Idées, on Rue Yves Toudic – is closed during the weekend, I`d have one reason more to go for brunch at Holy Belly! (I have already told you in a previous post how much I love this place)
My Saturday would most probably continue with a bit of shopping on Rue Saint-Honoré, from where I normally get my supply of gorgeous Diptique perfumed candles, or on the streets near the Opera.
And, because Saturdays are for indulging, a short visit to Pierre Hermé for some delicious macarons should also be on the list.
Back to my beloved 10ème arrondissement and feeling slightly guilty after the macaron intake, lunch would have to be at Sol Semilla, the extremely healthy (and tasty!) food place on Rue des Vinaigriers.
But let`s not forget we find ourselves in the 10th, which means that, besides the best place for brunch in town, here also resides the best place for coffee in Paris: Ten Belles, on Rue de la Grange aux Belles. And here is just another excuse to drop by for a good cup of coffee!
Energized after the cup of coffee and still not in the mood to go home, my feet would probably carry me further down the streets of the neighbourhood.
A cosy evening at home should sound like the best thing to do at the end of a day spent entirely outside, but the temptation of meeting friends for dinner in Le Marais has all the chances to win this over!
As you might have figured it out by now, this is exactly how our Saturday in Paris looked like just a week ago. And oh, how I could get used to this lifestyle! 🙂
