For savvy shopping, wait for the sales! It is the ideal time to find your favourite brands at up to half price or even more sometimes.

The Parisian and her handbag…a love story over the centuries. It can be mini, just enough for a phone and a credit card although very often huge, heavy and an annex to our home. We love it. During a well-filled day, it even turns into a set of matryoshkas, the Balenciaga shopping bag housing a Fendi evening bag and, of course, a makeup bag, not forgetting the shoulder bag for things that have to be found quickly…

Less than forty years old, but already an icon! Opened in 1977, the Centre Pompidou, often referred to as Beaubourg by Parisians, has become one of the liveliest and most visited attractions in the city. It’s a museum of course, but also a library, a place full of life, and with its multicoloured exterior designed by Renzo Piano, a unique monument in the heart of Paris. Six floors, unusual architecture and a view of the whole of Paris, which visitors love.
