miss b loves.......My Little Paris



My Little Paris is a cute book which tells you the best Parisian secrets. It's full of little gems, snippets of information and quirky recommendations(certainly not the usual touristy places!)

Fany Péchiodat, the creator of the My Little Paris website has teamed up with her sister Amandine to share favourite addresses and useful tips when visiting the city........
The book begins with a detailed Things to Do list.......
.

There are suggestions for brunch....and lunch at the market.....

and where to be a guinea-pig for a future three star chef!


One of my favourite pages..........


... a useful map showing the designer outlet stores..............including a definite for my next trip...Repetto shoes!! 

We find out the deepest Parisian fears, where to have your eyebrows threaded and there's even a suggestion for fighting the Sunday night blues!

A  few quotes are sprinkled in here and there........
            

It's such a charming and fun book with adorable illustrations by Japanese artist Kanako Kuno......



Here's a sweet video about the making of the book. The first one is in French and the second is the English version....
