April showers bring May flowers, right? We've been having the most beautiful weather in Paris and yet, I've been spending my days at Starbucks working on projects. I know I'm always complaining about work, but as much as I love doing research and writing code, I'd rather be spending my days at the Champ de Mars or by the banks of the Seine having some cheese and wine with good friends. But I guess that will have to wait till the end of the month. Two weeks. Two more weeks. Summer just can't come soon enough!

Yay, finally talking about my new shop! It's been open since October and I've talked about it on tumblr and twitter, but never wrote a proper post about it on the blog. I've been mostly sharing tumblr themes and Paris prints, but just recently I've had the time to add blogger themes! They're very customizable (colors, fonts, widths, etc...) and responsive, all of blogger's options are still applicable (add or remove widgets, change the layout, etc...) and are very easy to use. The above theme is called With Roses and is already available in my shop – you can preview it and read more about the theme at this link or buy it here. More themes will be up this week and I can't wait to share more on the blog!
I'm also thinking of redesigning my blog. I'm starting to get tired of it and find it a little boring to be honest – what do you think?

Taking a break from all the projects I need to finish by the end of month and scanning a couple of polaroids I took this week. I don't use my polaroid much anymore (mostly because polaroid films are too expensive) but there's something so nostalgic about watching a photo slowly develop in front of you... I think I might take it out more often with me this summer. And speaking of summer, yesterday was my last day of class. All that's left before my summer break are my finals and project presentations in May! It's so weird (and exciting) to think that I'm almost done with the first year of my master's degree.

After weeks of wind, rain and hail (and just a bit of snow), it started feeling like spring in Paris and I couldn't be more excited. Still a bit cold, but oh-so-sunny! A couple of friends and I went for a walk around the first arrondissement to enjoy the sun for a bit and then visited the Musée de l'Orangerie. It's located in the west corner of the Tuileries Gardens near the Place de la Concorde and is home to 8 Water Lilies murals by Claude Monet (Les Nymphéas). The museum recently lifted its ban on photography after the french minister posted photos of paintings she took at the museum on Instagram, so I made sure to take my camera with me and share some photos with you on the blog! If you're coming to Paris soon, make sure to check-out this museum. Definitely worth the visit.
The museum is open from 9am to 6pm everyday except for Tuesdays. For more information, please visit www.musee-orangerie.fr
