Films in winter

Well, I did that post for Autumn, did you really think I won’t do it for Winter ? Of course I would !

Winter means cuddling with your partner or pet in bed while watching a lovely, very lovely film.

Films in winter

Here’s my top choice every year !

1/ Serendipity. One of my favorite romances. The chemistry between the two leading actors (Hello John and Kate) is very magical and will get you hooked !
2/ The Holiday.  The first time I saw it I died and promised myself that someday I’ll get my own cottage just like Kate Winslet.
3/ Elf. Hilarious film with the cutest Zooey Deschanel ever.
4/ Little Women. A classic that always makes me cry and swoon. I should also re-read the book very soon.
5/ Bridget Jones. Is this the list where I gather all of my favorite funny romances ? Might be! Do I need to talk about this one or everyone does know it by heart just like I do ?
6/ The Devil Wears Prada. Meryl Streep kills it in every scenes, Tucci is as always brilliant and it makes me wanna be a fierce leading woman !
7/ The Chronicle of Narnia. Ah the magical world of Narnia, the snow, James McAvoy and Regina Spektor’s song. This one, I love to watch on a snowy Sunday morning.
8/ White Christmas. A festive classic that everyone should watch at least once in their life !

And … the last one. The one that I watch every year. The one that has been in my life since I’ve been a kid.
Mickey’s Christmas Carol. Yes people, I had to put a Disney film in that list. Have you seen it?

Well that’s it ! Have you seen any of these films ? What are your favorite films ?

Music in Winter

Music in Winter - Sense & Sensibility

Another season, another playlist. So here’s my winter playlist, full of christmas songs and folk music!

I hope you won’t be disturbed by the fact that there’s a lot of Michael Bublé songs in there. It’s not my fault if the man puts me in such a good spirit ! I also, of course, included some folk music but you can never go wrong with folk!

As always, the playlist is on 8tracks. I also want to share it on Spotify but since some of the songs are not available on it, I don’t know what I should do. Do you have any idea ?

Enjoy and have a marvelous day!

Blend Hamburger in Paris

Blend Hamburger - Sense & Sensibility

Hi everyone, it’s been a long time since I have written this kind of posts. Last time was in March 2013; time flies by really fast !

I’ve been discovering new restaurants this past few year since now I’m working full-time in Paris. One of my co-workers wanted to try « Blend Hamburger », and so we went. What a treat! It’s one of our favorites places to eat good old burger.

So, a few weeks ago I went back with Léa and took pictures because I wanted to share this address with you.

The hamburgers are really good and not too greasy, the fries are on point; everything is homemade.

For 15 euros you can have a burger, french fries, and a soft drink. If you’re still hungry afterwards, try one of their cookies they are delicious !

I must stress out though that the place can be crowded due to their popularity, you sometimes have to wait ten minutes to be seated; but trust me, it’s worth the wait.

They have three addresses in Paris :

3 rue Yves Toudic, 75010 Paris
1 boulevard des Filles du Calvaires, 75003 Paris
44 rue d’Argout, 75002 Paris

Tell me if you go next time you are in Paris, you’re in for a treat!
