To the new... boutique hotel...

Buddha-Bar Hotel Paris...

"Au Coeur de" Faubourg-Saint-Honoré... a short walk from the Palais de l'Élysée... an 18th century "town mansion" in rue d'Anjou...

It is the latest five-star hotel... in this prestigious "quartier"...

Upon entering the hotel .. we were transported into a Parisian take on 1930's Shanghai... reminiscent of a scene from the magnificent film "Shanghai Express"...

L'Eclair Café... French with a Whiff... of American Vintage...

"January... is the...

Loneliest... month...

Of... the year"...

Read the heading of the... "journal de jour"...

Our beautiful... elegant... Christmas tree...

Has been... dismantled...

The festive décor... banished down the "cave"...

The postman delivers envelopes... full of bills rather than... coveted glamorous Christmas gifts...

Neighbours... bickering...

Sons and daughter are off to their... "Lycée... université"...

"L'Hôtel George V - Un Diamant... à Paris"

"L'Hôtel George V"...

Beauty... of beauties...

The... Liz Taylor... of Hotels...

Like a... Diamond...

IT... DRIPS...

GLAMOUR...

Mahjong... Our Decadent Soirée...

We had a... glamorous...

"Mahjong"... Soirée...

The other evening...

Hôtel Lutetia... We'll... Meet Again...

Hôtel Lutetia...

J'adore...

My hotel...

My home... away from... home...

It is...

"Le Royal Monceau" - A Rhapsody by Philippe Starck...

"Le Royal Monceau"...

"Dormir... rêver...

Partager... vivre"...

"To sleep... to dream... to share... to live"...

Grazie - Our Irresistable Pizzeria à Paris

Oh... by the way, you must... must... visit "Grazie"...

The Marais - Our Future Home...?

We live in the "seizième arrondissement" -

Our apartment is off Avenue Foch and very "proche" to the "Bois de Boulogne".

It's Posh...

It's Tosh...

It's very luxurious and stylish.

"Fascination" turned to love...

It was fascination...

I know....

We arrived at the Hotel Ritz, in his Bentley, at the Place Vendôme...

Early evening...

We went straight to the "The Bar Vendôme" for our usual drinks - Champagne for me, a Vodka Martini for him.
