Birthday Weekend

This past weekend was a little special as it was my birthday and the third that I've celebrated in Paris. Friday was a holiday, so I started the 3 day weekend with a coffee at


, followed by crepes at

Le Creperie de Josselin

 (some of the best crepes in town) and then a trip to the cinema to watch


- I'm a sucker for dystopian films with a strong female lead. 

On Saturday (the day) we had lunch at


. I have been looking forward to this dining experience since the restaurant opened a couple of years ago and literally couldn't stop smiling as champagne was followed by the tastiest oysters, mussels, squid, ceviche and more wine. 

Later I dragged the boy shopping to buy this


from Whistles and then joined friends for tacos and cocktails at

Death by Burrito

 in the evening. Without gushing too much, I'm lucky to have such lovely friends to celebrate with me - I was overwhelmed with love, cards and gifts - which were not only thoughtful, but fortuitously also very photogenic!
