|Special thanks to "Joseph the Butler" for allowing me to use this photo commemorating our first meeting for the Paris-Lifestyle interview. It was easier "going public" with a friend by my side!|
One of the first questions that people usually ask me as a blogger is how I learn about all of the "cool stuff" that I do in Paris. The answer is that I'm a research nerd who spends hours tracking down bits of information online. Unfortunately, my super sleuth skills failed to uncover "Paris-Lifestyle", one of the best websites for visitors and residents of the City of Light. If you've ever departed from Charles de Gaulle or Orly Airport, chances are that you're already familiar with the glossy version of this dual language (French/English) magazine because it's available in 11 of the airport terminals.
I became an avid reader of the online version of "Paris-Lifestyle" after receiving an email from them at the beginning of November asking if I would agree to do an interview. Ironically enough, I read their email while sitting in one of the departure lounges at Orly Airport on my way to Bordeaux. Talk about serendipity! Covering the latest trends and best events in this vibrant city, "Paris Lifestyle" takes you behind-the-scenes of renowned monuments, shares the Parisian stories of famous personalities who excel in their fields and reveals the trendiest fashions in ready-to-wear and luxury brands.
In addition to sections on the best restaurants, bars, boutiques, hotels and must-see exhibitions, the online version of "Paris-Lifestyle" also features the "bonnes addresses" (favorite addresses) of Parisian bloggers. As their first expat blogger, I'm pleased to invite you to read:
The Paris of "Out and About in Paris"
If you're interested in the latest information about Paris, I highly recommend joining the online Paris-Lifestyle Club, which offers exceptional invitations to shows and exhibitions, special previews, books, CDs and DVDs. Shortly after becoming a member of the free club, I was thrilled to win National Geographic's PHOTOgraphics, an impressive book featuring stunning photos from around the world.
Additionally, I'm a huge fan of the "Paris-Lifestyle" facebook page and free Paris-Lifestyle app, which is available in English, French, Chinese and Russian. And while I'm at it, I should also mention that My Airport, the free official Aéroports de Paris app, is an invaluable tool for frequent travelers or moms who are anxiously waiting for their children to arrive in Paris. It's what I'll be using on Wednesday to check the flight information for my son!
