So the Prête-Moi Paris 4 year blogiversary fête was a hit and a success. Complete with a vintage fashion show, champagne, and a raffle for prizes, it was a feast of pink fluff, cupcakes and DIY!
Sion of Paris Imperfect and Gail of Perfectly Paris ; Meg of De Quelle Planète Es-Tu? Lisa of Ella Coquine Mary Kay of Out And About in Paris and Patricia of Patricia Parisienne have all written posts on the event. Thanks ladies! You make me sound waaay too fab! *blushing*
It was a fabulous gathering of our little blogging community in Paris, most of us expats, but a Frenchy and a best friend or two and the crowd was well mixed albeit largely feminine (yeah girl power!). Chéri high-tailed it far away for the evening. Something tells me all those pink puff scared him a little. But being the absolute chéri that he is, he helped me clean up every last sequin sparkle and cupcake crumb when it was all over. I am truly a lucky woman.
My little pink blog is four years old this month. I can hardly believe that it has been so long already! Hmm actually, yes I can believe it. For such an simple and sweet publication it certainly demands a lot of my attention and energy… not always abundant when working a full time job as well.
But I haven’t given it up because it gives me such satisfaction and is my instantaneous creative gratification. Plus I get to share MY Paris with all of you! ♥
Tonight I am having a little fête to celebrate these past four years of Fashion, bubbly, gourmandise and DIY blogging in Paris, with a handful of bloggers and friends. And to share the love, I am showcasing a few friends’ brands at the party : Vintage Galerie, Kasia Dietz bags, Mon Champagne, Sugar Daze cupcakes and Cleopatra’s Bling.
Joyeux anniversaire Prête-Moi Paris!
Here’s to many more….
I love Yelp and so should you!
They threw their one year anniversary party for Yelp France/Paris on June 9th 2011, where there were foodies, bloggers, Yelpers and fans a-plenty, as well as food and drink! It was fun and fabulous and delicious!
I nibbled on oriental cookies with almonde paste (marzipan) that were lactose free!!! *happy face* from Diamande, enjoyed a cool Paris brand beer from the guys who revived Demory, made my own DIY ‘food porn’ at Norton of Paris’ hard to get to table (everyone wanted to have a go. LOL!) , sipped a DELICIOUS cocktail from Candelaria, drooled over Lola’s cookies (but couldn’t eat them…butter.) *sad face*, gobbled down a plate of yummy mexan specialties from El Nopal (chéri said that their guacamole was almost as good as mine. Aww!), got my picture taken by Lomography on their retro cameras that use…gasp…film! And I watched chéri taste some very poten whisky proposed by Julhès which were accompanied by various delictable items to eat that brought out or married well with the different whisky flavors. (I’m not a big whisy fan).
To see what else was proposed for people to test, taste and drink that night check out Yelps description of the soirée here.
And here is their fabulous video! They caught me camera taking their picture! LOL!
