Herb Lester map city guides

The wonderful Rachel over at Herb Lester sent me a few of their city maps. I already own a few I love the one for Amsterdam and Paris, it’s where I discovered the amazing super old paper store in Amsterdam, and how I found the place to buy new blue French worker jackets in Paris.

These handy little guides are so useful, colorful and compact enough to travel with. They have since made two more for Paris, and added many more cities. If you’re heading anywhere soon, these guides have nice unusual tips for exploring new places.

I thought I’d start the new year off with a post that involved the most champagne possible. Just before I took off for the holidays, (we’re catching up on all kinds of things over here) Acne Paper hosted a party at the Museum of Hunting and Nature in Paris for the launch of their latest issue. It was an evening filled with polar bears and never ending glasses of champagne, which that last photo is a result of. This is one of my favorite museums in Paris and such a perfect place for a holiday soirée, it doesn’t get much better than a party with polar bears, swords and men in feathered caps who are constantly at your side filling your champagne glass.

Friday night David and I went to check out the Japanese “Washi” Masking Tape installation at the Upcycling exhibition at Merci made by be-poles. Champagne, bread, cheese, friends, lots of colorful masking tapes, pretty collages and an incredible special edition book made it a pretty fun night. I absolutely love the collages made by be-poles that surround the tapes on the tabletop so here is a little tour of the table area to share with you.

Journal de Nimes

The Journal de Nimes French Issue came out in April but I love this issue so much, especially the article on Diptyque, I thought I’d share it. I never knew their candles were free of any artificial or harmful products! It makes me love them even more. You can view the issue and read the article online here.
Issue No. 5 just came out today and is online here.
