Finally we're back in Paris.
Soon everyone will be on holidays and I will enjoy my beloved empty city.
I truly love staying in Paris during summer.
Of course, I'm gonna go on some trips but I want to stay as long as possible in Paris during August.
First of all, it's my birthday at the end of August haha, and I want to spend it at home.
Secondly, August is the best time to really enjoy Paris.
At that time of the year, Paris is emptied from tourists and Parisians, you can see the true side of this beautiful city.
Today I want to share with you my 10 things to do in order to have a true Parisian Summer. ♡
Typical summer lifestyle of a Parisian.
1. But first Coffee
I'm pretty sure it's the same thing all around the world. Breakfast is the key of a good day !
Wether you prefer a black coffee from South America, or a deep green tea from Korea, grab your drink, your bag and a croissant and kick this day off.
That's your day!
Someone told me that Parisians Women are well known for being slender.
No, it's not because we are always late running around the city on stilettos, we like to maintain our body's health.
Pilates, running, yoga is our everyday gym routine.
3. Paris the city of Art
Paris city of love, but most of all, it's the city of art and expressions.
Take some time to enjoy one of her beautiful museums.
Or, you could just walk around, enjoy the architecture, the musicians and street art performances.
4. Lunch time in your favorite Café / Parisian Brewery
Nothing feels better than eating under the sun on one of the most iconic Parisian café: Le Café de Flore.
Time is like stopped in this café, and you could still feel the aura of all the great artists that ate in this place.
Once you are full of energy after eating a great lunch, it's time to spend some money in the Capital of Fashion and Luxury.
Don't forget to shut down your phone, so your banker won't call you every ten minutes
6. Grab your bike
Little advice from a Parisian girl: the best way to enjoy and move around the city is on a bike.
Don't take any taxis or buses because you will lose your money and time.
7. Find The book
Paris is full of libraries, wether you want to find a book in a foreign language or some unique poetry book, there is for sure a place to shop for you.
8. Gouter and Macaroons
What is a day in Paris without a delicious gouter.
Stop by one of our Ladurée café to enjoy some colourful and yummy macaroons.
Saint Honoré, millefeuille, religieuse, éclaire, tartelette, there is for sure some sweets to please your mouth.
9. Park and flowers
We don't talk enough about how many beautiful gardens and parks Paris has.
In this city, you are surrounded with nature and flowers, to me that's what makes Paris so romantic.
10. Enjoy the sunset while eating on the Seine's Docks
What would be Paris without la Seine? She divides Paris in two but she's also the place to make memories.
Call your friend, bring some food and enjoy the sunset for a picnic on the Seine's dock.
That's how ended this typical summer day in Paris.
