Sun, rain, thunderstorms, repeat. This is what the weather has been like in Paris recently. But the light is always so bright and beautiful and it's one of my favorite things when I go out and have a walk in the neighborhood. Things have been slightly crazy around the city between the football hooligans, the terrorist attacks and the anti-labor reform demonstrations, so I'm spending most of my time close to home and work. I hope you're enjoying your summer more than I am. x

Finals are over, all projects are handed in and my research internship started just this week. And June is here, my birthday month! I’m turning 22 on Wednesday and my best friend won’t be in Paris for my birthday so we celebrated it together before she leaves for Belgium. We went to have drinks on at Ciel de Paris during sunset and it was just magical – one of the most breathtaking views. The restaurant is located in the 15th arrondissement, on the 53rd floor of the Montparnasse tower. If you're lucky enough, you'll get a table by the window with a view on the Eiffel Tower and all of Paris' most beautiful monuments.
Regarding my absence, I haven’t been feeling very inspired lately and put all my social media + blog on hold as you can probably tell. I think it's because of school & exams; usually around finals week, I tend to forget about this blogging world and concentrate on my studies. Once finals were over, I had a hard time getting back to blogging and sharing new photos. And the current Parisian weather didn't help much. It's been raining all week long and it kind of feels like November. But I've missed this little home of mine and I'm happy to be blogging again. Dear Laura turned 2 on the 17th of May and I wanted to thank each and everyone of you for reading my blog and commenting on my posts. It really means a lot and it definitely makes me want to spend more time on the blog. So again, thank you!

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.
