To get my extra shot of Paris without me being there, I like watching the following movies.
Midnight in Paris
This movie has a wonderful combination of nostalgia (yes I was born in the wrong era) and Paris.
Paris je t’aime
Paris in so many different ways. I love almost every story.
Everything evolves around the big opera house in Paris. Yet, I have never been there.
Julie & Julia
I must have mentioned this movie a dozen times to people or on Twitter and Facebook. It still makes me tick. I love everything about this movie and I devoured the book about Julia Child too. The movie is a must-see!
About these movies
I love seeing the avenues, the buildings, the churches (oh how I love the Notre Dame!) and the food. There are many more movies that kind of take place in Paris (like ‘Taken’) but you don’t see anything of Paris. The lovely thing about these movies is that you can watch it and dream about Paris, as much as you like.
What movies that (partly) take place in Paris do you like?

(Believe me, it is highly unusual) And they were LESS then €4 each. Such a score! I also spotted great shoes, some that had never been worn or only once or twice (not my size though, pity). If you need something new, I highly recommend checking out your local vintage store or thriftshop. You might just find the perfect pair of jeans • • •

I have been writing for a while now and mostly my days consist of this: sitting at my table or at my desk and getting sh*t done. I usually write down my plans and goals for the day and try to stick to it. I have found that writing a schedule for the day (up to the breaks and lunch!) really help in staying focused. The fluffy pen does make
