Parisienne Diary | Paris in August

Dear readers,

How are you? At this moment, the city is boiling hot and the Parisian disappeared. The boulangerie at the corner of the street is closed, the famous “fermeture annuelle“. I love Paris in August. I feel the city is more “mine” and I love to stroll a lot to discover new places which are less crowded at the moment.

First of all, what’s vintage exactly? Vintage clothing from the past that is now in vogue and gets a second life. Vintage clothing is named as it is manufactured between 1920 and late 70s. In 1971 Yves Saint Laurent first to launch the vintage style. It was called the “flea market fashion.” It was very popular and the number of vintageshops exploded!

An house in Provence

As you may know, I am writing my second book. This story will be very different than my first that I’ve written. During my travels to Provence and the Cote d’Azur the story, that was used for a writing contest (The Lavender House), has formed bit by bit. I won this writing contest (see my publications). I got very nice comments about this story, that I decided to work it into a novel.

Parisienne Diary | The Markets of Provence

Dear readers,

It’s my last week in Provence. I can’t almost believe that time really flies…it’s a pity but we’ve had and still have wonderful days under the Provencal sun. This time I will take you along the markets of Provence.

The days are very hot and I enjoy my early mornings at the terrace and the afternoon in the shade with a good book. I am reading A forgotten summer by Carol Drinkwater. I can highly recommend this book!

The days are passing by slowly. The heat causes us to be very lazy so I have planned a trip to the markets of Provence. My mother and my sister will join me. Tomorrow we will visit the Saturday market in Draguignan and Sunday the market in le Muy.

If you are planning a trip to Provence and would like to visit the many market, pop over here to learn which market is held on which day.
