Describe yourself in 3 words or less… Rose Coloured World.

What makes Paris so special?  The light, it's beauty, the French, the history, the secrets… 

We only have 24 hours in Paris, where would you take us? Sometimes the clichés in Paris are the best, so I would start with breakfast at Cafe des Flore, then take Rue Dauphine to the Seine, cross the bridge and walk through the Louvre courtyards to Jardin Tuileries for all the lovely Paris clichés. Then get bikes (velib) and ride to an exhibition at Grand Palais, or Palais de Tokyo etc (depending what's on). Late lunch at The Broken Arm in the Marais followed by a bit of shopping, watching and  wandering  through the  galleries and shops in Rue Vieille de Temple, Rue Charlot, Merci, tea and cake at Mariarges Freres (if you can fit it in), cocktails at Le Mary Celeste, dinner at Au Passage and then out  dancing….ooh la la!

Favorite place for coffee? Cafe Tabac. 

Favorite place for fun dinner with friends?  Au Passage.

Favorite place for cosy date night?  Les Chardenoux des Pres.

We want culture! Galleries, exhibitions…what are your favorites?   I love that there are so many great exhibitions to see in Paris. The classics - Grand Palais, Palais de Tokyo,  MEP,  Musee d'Orsay, Le Louvre  (only for 1-2hrs at a time!) Centre Pompidou, Le Jeu de Paume, Musee Rodin,  Foundation CartierGallerie Allen, Marais Galleries - Perotin, Yvon LambertAlmine Rech, Marian Goodman.

Where can we sing?  Karoke bars in Rue st Ann.

Where can we dance?! Yoyo, Le Baron, Le Fantome, Le Carmen, Raspoutine, Glace, Silencio, Titty Twister.    

Favorite weekend getaway outside of Paris? Deauville, or even Bois de Boulogne, can feel like you're getting out of town.

What is on your stereo? Sounds of the season on SoundCloud.

Words you live by…Live curiously.
