Last week in France {in pictures}

Paris with kids
The kids went back to school in the middle of last week {yes already in August}. As happy as I am to have some time for myself again {and before the baby comes}, going back to the routine in the middle of August still feels strange…

Anyway… we only got back to Sweden the Sunday before and here is the last part of our holidays… in pictures!

This year we went up the Eiffel Tower. Like true tourists but mainly because the kids asked every time we were in Paris…

I managed to buy the tickets online – you need to be quick and you need to know when your date is going on sale BUT you will jump the queues and it is well worth it…

The day started rather grey but once we arrived at the Tower the sky opened up and even the sun came out!

The kids loved it and were especially fascinated by the glass floor on the 1st floor…

It was really warm and with that big bump of mine I skipped the shops {most} and enjoyed sitting in the park with some cold drinks, salads and lots of ice cream… and playing kids of course!

 

Oh and by the way, for our journeys from the airport into town & back we used a new service called Blacklane this year. No way to use public transport in Paris {especially with a bigger family} and so nice to know that somebody is waiting for you and all you have to do is getting your luggage, find your driver and hop in the car… Bookmark it for your next trip!

Palais de Tokyo

Can you have a museum crush?

When we arrived in France nearly 3 weeks ago, we stayed in Paris for a few days. One day it was raining and we went to the Palais de Tokyo. A place I wanted to visit for some time…

And we loved it! So different… and cool. Dedicated to modern and temporary art it also hosts workshops for kids & families, story time and various ateliers. Check Little Palais for more info.

Right now you have an exposition called Aquaalta, which is an exposition you discover “on a lake”. Yes really, you take a little boat …

There is a great museum shop {always a must to check shops at museums} with lots of awesome books and rare magazines and a a great kids section including DVD’s from Studio Ghibli and the like!

Aaaaaaannnd… you can get really good food there too. Either visit the small and cosy cafeteria for little snacks and drinks or have a yummy lunch {or diner} at the restaurant. Which is also kind of an exhibition itself :)

We are in France now for a little over a week.

We did not start with the beach immediately but with a little stop over in Paris for 2 days and then traveled further to Brittany to visit my husband’s part of the family.

The weather can be very vary and we started off with a very grey and rainy day…

But then finally we could hit the beach. Windy, a little fresh…

Sarah Weerts, born in Belgium, was educated in Paris and graduated from ESMOD in 2003. She worked for Vannina Vesperini & Cacharel but was so fascinated by the world of decoration and children that she launched her own brand –¬† Blossom in 2013.

I love the soft approach mixed with some bright colours. The little birds, lovely embroidery, liberty fabrics…

Everything is Made in France and really makes me very inpatient to welcome a newborn again…

The beautiful blankets are also available for customization – perfect gift!

There was a moment I was standing very close to the booth from Blune and talked to some people… for some time actually and everyone I was talking to, sooner or later, pointed out the collection behind me… they sure did get some attention and I think you can clearly see why.

A collection as beautiful as the best ice cream shop in Italy. Pastels, little neon and beautiful prints…
Add some great designs and it is one of {my} must have collections for next summer!
