Stuff Parisians Like Blog: Foreign Girls →
I just laughed for a good minute: “A quick peak inside a Parisian bar will give you a good indication of how love works in the City of Love. A traditional bar in Paris will be 75% guys. 22% foreign girls and a handful of French girls on the loose (usually just accompanying their boyfriends).

ameliamagritte: So today I did this CNNLive segment on Online Dating Dealbreakers, based off this article that Leonora wrote for The Frisky. Coincidentally, Julia Allison was on “It’s On With Alexa Chung” (I am totally jealous of this) to discuss a similar subject. Anyhoo, one of the things the CNN anchor asked me about was a letter from a CNN reader who basically said that Leo’s post was just...

10 goals for my year in france
1. Become completely fluent. Or at least, as advanced as I possibly can. 2. Create a feeling of home on my own. 3. Make new friends (and also get out of comfort zones by going to meetups, reaching out to others, not being passive). 4. Fall in love. If not with a French man (although this would greatly aid in goal #1), then with myself. 5. Ok fine, fall in love. 6. Have passionate arguments...

Bastille Day Special: French Films in a Nutshell
Last weekend, Cecile and I spent almost an entire Saturday in bed. As a result of spending so much time with my French BFF, I tend to go France-crazy, and make her talk French with me, or explain to me some complexities which I still fail to grasp like dialing numbers internationally, applying for a metropass, or setting up WiFi in Paris. So on Saturday, thanks to Cecile’s lovely streaming...
