Winter Love

By now, you all are aware of my love for Autumn. But did I ever tell you that I absolutely love Winter ? Some people are going to say that I’m crazy but I love the cold & sunny days.

Snuggling in my scarf and knitted sweaters, drinking Cadbury hot chocolate, watching films with my cats … there’s something romantic about it. To be quite honest, it’s the most romantic season in my opinion. Especially when there’s snow involved, falling down, covering the gardens, putting smiles on children faces, and yes, also on mine.

I’ve shared with you my winter playlist, my winter list of films to watch … so now let’s share inspirational pictures I found on pinterest.

5 things that warm up my heart

Lately I needed to remind myself how to take care of myself and I did a list of things that make life great.

5 things that warms up my heart

Fresh Flowers. Nothing like getting fresh flowers to illuminate your house/room. These are peonies and anemones and were just so beautiful, I had to capture them to memorize the joy I felt seeing them in my room for a few days. They reminded me than even in the cold grey days, you could find beauty somewhere, just around the corner.

Going to a bookshop. I’m a bookworm and there’s nothing wrong with that. Always loved the company of books, always found it both invigorating and empowering. A few days ago I went to Galignani, the last time was over five years ago (!), and fell in love again. The wooden floors, the lads, the smell, the tons of books just waiting to be picked… ah, it was so magical. Might have bought a pretty book. Also posted a lot of pictures on my instagram account.

Treating myself. For years I thought I didn’t deserve to treat myself, I had too many pounds to lose, too little money to spoil. That changed. I have to sometimes remind myself that I deserve a little treat. So, I bought two dresses. One for day time, one for the evening at restaurants and concerts in the new Philharmonie in Paris.

Drinking tea. Even though I am a huge coffee drinker, I also love drinking tea. Recently a friend gifted me with this marvelous tea from Ladurée, called Marie-Antoinette. As you know my love for her, this tea was definitely made for me.

Blogging. Since I’ve started working full-time, blogging has been my little escape from the real world. I enjoy reading blogs from all over the world, and I do enjoy writing on here and on The Beautiful Stillness. You might not know this but I do own a book blog !

What things do make you feel great ? What did you enjoy doing lately ?

Winter Walk in Versailles

Filed under : Oh, Paris !, Photography

Few pictures from the last time I went to le Château de Versailles. I’m really passionate about castles and especially Marie-Antoinette, so every time I go to Versailles it’s like I’m walking in a dream and I appreciate every little moments.

It was winter time therefore it was absolutely magical. The cold wind, the walk.. too bad there was a lot of people. Maybe one day I’ll be able to do Versailles Intime, who knows ?

If you’re coming to Paris and you have some free time, I highly recommend you to visit Versailles and especially Le Petit Trianon which is my favourite part.
