PEOPLE-ENG- Brigitte Macron, the next First Lady

Here they are now, on the threshold of the Presidential Elysees Palace, our local White House. A newcomer in politics, former banker and Ministre, Macron has almost won the top job last night. Emmanuel Macron had been the favourite in most surveys for weeks.  He managed to take the edge on the 10 other candidates, helped by  a « 12th candidate », his significant other, Brigitte. She has been « the one » since he was 15. Now, their romance is part of French History.

It was fated between these two soulmates

No matter what, Brigitte Macron has accompanied her husband everywhere, beaming like a star, always dolled up in luxury clothes on loan from the very exclusive brand LV (Louis Vuitton).  Brigitte has been so full of energy that she  really seemed to be the 12th candidate.

Will she be the most stylish French First Lady ever  ?  Errr, let’s have a look…

LIFESTYLE- Marvels galore at Aux Merveilleux

A very yammy pastry boutique nests near the Boulevard Saint Germain, at 300 meters from the St Michel Boulevard and its subway station.

The number of products looks scarce in comparison with other French pastry shops, but you cannot take your eyes off the  exciting colourful marvels, those mysterious domes full of promises.

LIFESTYLE – Un Jour à Paris

Looking for a simple and quiet place to romance your significant other in a original Parisian atmosphere ? Or a cosy restaurant for a dinner in family ?

A very cute bar restaurant in the heart of Paris, here is Un Jour à Paris. Not to be confused with other places using the same name, this one is Rue de l’Echiquier, in the 10th district of Paris, the theaters district,  not far from the legendary movie theater, Le Grand Rex and the wax museum Musee Grevin.

Last night , I attended a gathering of coaches and freelance consultants and trainers.  As the initial place was full, we ended up quite unexpectedly at Un Jour à Paris. At first sight, especially in a rainy and icy evening, nothing special in what looked like a very basic bar…as per Parisian standards.

LIFESTYLE – July in Paris- part 3, along the Seine at Paris Plages

You heard of Copacabana, but never of Paris Plages ? You have to come to Paris to see that sandbeach on the bank of the Seine River. Every year, Paris City Council have several tons of sand spread on a Paris Quay for a month. Many quays are usually closed during the summer to enable pedestrians to relax and walk around freely.
