Link Love: All Things French

April 17, 2015

 


 

Everybody knows @ParisinFourMonths (If you don’t, you should definitely check her out on Instagram here). To cut it short, photographer Carin Olsson moved to Paris, intending to only stay there for four months. However, she fell in love with the city and everything else was history (i.e. She’s still there!).

 

I can totally understand her love for Paris. Though I feel that there are many other French cities that are totally understated and open us up to more worlds than Paris, there is this je ne sais quoi about France and the French way of life that is hard to replicate anywhere else. I definitely would love to move to France one day in the future, seeing just how much I miss the place, the culture, the food and the people. It’s not that Singapore is bad. On the contrary, I feel quite balanced where I am at this point in my life.

 

But France is always tempting.

 

Today, I’m featuring not 5 but 6 French bloggers to introduce to all of you a little more about France. It’s not just about macarons, sex, fashion and good food. It’s all of that with a twist.

 


French Bloggers - Laced Ivory's Picks

 

1. Valentine from Hello It’s Valentine exhibits Parisian chic in what I call a vélo à la crème and a pair of vintage jeans.

2. Fiona from Paris Hues shares with us her Breakfast Cranberry and Sesame Flapjacks recipe. And we know how well the French eat!

3. Eleonor at Le Blog de la Méchante gives us an idea on how to welcome spring with hues of lavender.

4. Louise at Pandora show us how colour blocking can be done in Paris.

5. Swedish lifestyle editor and photographer Solli at Solli Kanani gives us a glimpse of what we love best – macarons!

6. Typhaine at Cuillère à Absinthe shows us a great way to wear pinstripes.

 

It’s always assumed that the people in Paris (or France) are gorgeously fashionable and stylish on a day-to-day basis but to tell you the truth, they aren’t all like we dream. Just as how you might feel a little out of place in a bright-yellow-and-denim ensemble in Singapore, it’s actually quite the same in France. But one thing’s for sure: The French really know how to live a balanced life. Just read Elena’s blog post on the 5 ways her life improved while living in France.

 

Dare to dream,
