Sensory Friday

This week, I’m back in Paris but New York is still lingering.

• It felt so good to have the sun’s rays and summer heat on my bare legs.
• Of the many delicious things I ate, I think the very best wasn’t even a sweet—it was the smoked cod salad at Jack the Horse: smoky, creamy, generous, unique and utterly divine.
• I finally listened to La Petit Choue’s kickass birthday mix—all kinds of new musicians. Merci, Kate!
• I was dazzled by the wardrobe and art direction and cinematography in I Am Love—extraordinary.
• But now that I am back in Paris, I am surrounded by one of my all-time favorite things in the world: the smell of freshly baked baguettes. Not even the Egyptian jasmine for Hermé’s perfume smell as good as a French boulangerie at 8 o’clock in the morning.


  1. Oh Goody , I missed these ! :)

    After feeling cold from walking in the misty grey day, we ate almond croissants and drank fragrant hot Earl Grey tea, while I listened to Riders on the Storm ( the Doors) and tried not to get depressed by the dreary weather we have had for a week now.

  2. Candice, it sounds like a gorgeous day, despite the weather. Here's hoping it dries up in BA soon!

  3. HA
    I said all the best places were in Brooklyn...even id I haven't eaten in any of them!
