Mom and I found an awesome antique shop near the Basilica di Santa Croce. There were many interesting stuffs. We dug up this shop for a while. My mom bought some antique spoons and boxes. The shopkeeper in pink dress was very kind and nice. If you like antique thing, it’s good to visit there.

We arrived in Florence at night. We were exhausted because we had to carry our super heavy baggages to third floor without lift. After a long sleep, we encountered the awesome view from our bedroom. We are in Florence!
We had italian spaghetti, pizza and Con Panna in Piazza della Repubblica.
After charging up our strength, we climbed up to the top of the bell tower. We looked on red roofs and the Cupola of the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore.

Last day in Paris! After packing my suitcase, I went to La Patisserie des Reves near my place. Awesome cakes were displayed like jewelry shop. I wanted to have a coffee with delicious cakes there, but it’s possible to only takeout during weekday. So I picked three cakes to share with my parent before going to airport.
The biggest Isabel Marant boutique on avenue Victor Hugo! The small garden is so good.
And I’m flying to Florence. I’ll update Italy trip pictures next week. See you in Florence!

Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain is 30 years old! Cartier inaugurated the Fondation Cartier near Versailles 30 years ago. Ten years later, the Fondation Cartier moved to glass and steel building by Jean Nouvel in Paris. Many artists were exhibited in this awesome space for 30 years. The Fondation Cartier celebrates its 30th anniversary with the exhibition Vivid Memories, accompanied by concerts, events and some of the most symbolic works of the Fondation Cartier collections. There were some works I already saw from the past exhibitions.
I liked paper lights by Issey Miyake in the garden. They were moving like accordions. So cute!

We went to Conran shop. A truck rushed into the shop like vegetable section in La Grande Epicerie de Paris. It seems like a trend in Paris. I wanted to buy many stuffs there, but no more money and space in my suitcase. After Conran shop, we shopped in Sevres-Babylone district. We passed Esag/Penninghen school where I studied for 1 year. On our way to Fondation Cartier, we passed apartment on rue Campagne-Premiere where I lived for 6 months with my cousin. It was built by architect Andre Arftvidson in 1911. This building did the transition between Art Nouveau, Art Deco and International style. I was bit proud at that time when some tourists were taking pictures my apartment. ๐Ÿ˜€

Paris Plages! Paris brings artificial beach each summer along the river Seine. There are sun beds, parasols, ice cream stand and palm trees in 5000 tons of sand. And music is always there. The weather was little bit cold for sunbathing. I’d like roast under the sun for next time!
We walked along the river to the Musee d’Orsay. Parisians were having great time with their lover, friends and wine. It’s so romantic!

MERCI! It’s must know French word when you travel in France. This Parisian concept store is created by founders of Bonpoint. They brought together the best of fashion, design, and household items in the Haut-Marais district. The red vintage car, Merci‘s mascot is parked at the courtyard. Can’t pass without taking pictures. ๐Ÿ˜€
I dropped by kid store, Bonton. There are many cute clothes and kids party stuffs. I bought some paper envelops and plates for picnic.
GRAZIE! It’s must know Italian word when you travel in Italy. It means “Thanks” like Merci. This is an italian restaurant near by Merci. They offer yummy rustic-style pizzas and delicious cocktails. The whole atmosphere is in dark. Even toilet paper is also in black. ๐Ÿ˜€ Booking is essential to get a table.
This boulevard Beaumaarchais will be full of “Thanks” shops and restaurant in many other languages, I guess.
Anyway, waiting a bus to move to Seine river. See you on Seine!

STRIPE! STRIPE! STRIPE! Yes, it’s Les Deux Plateux, better known as Les colonnes de Buren(Buren’s columns) in the courtyard of Palais-Royal. It was installed in 1986, but still looks new. Some tourists like me were taking pictures, some Parisians were having sandwiches and some people were reading on the columns. Especially, it’s perfect modern playground for children. And my mom’s OOTD was perfect match. ๐Ÿ˜€
We grabbed Espresso from the cutest small cafรฉ Kitsunรฉ in Palais-Royal. OMG! This tiny Espresso paper cup is so cute! Many Parisians were resting around the fountain. They looked relaxing and peaceful. I wanted take a rest for a while here, but there were not enough time for tourist like me. We had to move to next destination. See you on next post!
