Two words: pastel heaven. Last week as I was heading to class, I made a detour to Rue Crémieux in the 12th arrondissement. A little pedestrian street known for its 35 colorful two-story, terraced houses and village vibe. Quite the ideal retreat from all of Paris’ craziness, if you ask me. Do you have any favorite streets in Paris?

On Friday, I was invited to the Finish institute by Sinfonietta Paris to attend a chamber music concert. My dad is a big fan of classical music and he'd always talk to me about Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi etc. so I was very excited to attend this event!
The orchestra was composed of pianist Guillaume Sigier, violinist Rika Masato and cellist Julie Sevilla-Fraysse. They played compositions by Robert Schumann and later on, the pianist ended the performance with a composition by Mozart. The music program was followed by a wine tasting and appetizers with the musicians and the team behind Sinfonietta Paris. I wasn't allowed to take pictures during the concert for obvious reasons, but I took a couple afterwards.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Paris-based bloggers, Hana from Journey Into La Ville Lumière (who is also Sinfonietta Paris' official photographer), Aurélie from Les Flaneries d'Aurélie and Aisling from Trésor Parisien. Thanks again to Sinfonietta Paris, I had a wonderful time! I hope you all enjoyed the pictures; have a wonderful week!

I decided to take a break from studying and post these pictures I took a couple of days ago when it was bit warmer. Winter has definitely arrived in Paris as the high temperature today was three degrees celsius... Three. I bet you can imagine how excited I was to go to class today and how excited I will be tomorrow and every other day of this week. Thank God for beanies, mittens and scarves. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
