I can officially state that the best madeleine I've ever had was at the Ritz Paris – a little buttery cake of pure heaven and the lemon cake was by far my favourite. Champagne (thank you dearest Ashleigh!), lemon cake and wonderful company – yes please! Top marks for serving clotted cream...

I opted for the champagne Afternoon Tea which consisted of the chicest finger sandwiches known to Milla: smoked salmon, chicken and fois gras (evil but oh so delicious), an array of anti-bikini desserts, a pot of tea (sencha, of course) and a glass of Laurent Perrier Brut. I actually...

Milla in Shropshire? I think not. The last time I was at the Shangri-La was back in October and I thought the décor was nice but they have pulled out all the stops for Christmas. 153 photographs in one afternoon – I'll add some additional images to my Facebook page at some point. I feel...

Breizh Cafe is THE place in Paris where you can eat the best crepes in town. Located 109 rue Vieille du Temple (75003), Breizh Cafe is a simple, cosy, tiny place in the Marais. The team is French and Japanese, the founder having previously launched Breizh Cafe in Tokyo ! If you want my...

However, Coutume Café was a refreshing surprise. Easy on the budget, friendly English-speaking staff and a really chilled atmosphere. A nice place to spend the morning with friends and an absolute must for coffee addicts.

My then-fiancé-now-husband went look at the hotel and meet with the sales team whilst on a business trip in Paris, as we were still living in London at the time. He called me immediately after and raved that I would love it. As I walked through the gates a few months later with the fountain...

the things I like most about my life in Paris is that I'm constantly discovering. Of course I have my favourite place for tea, lunch and so on, but I'm keen to discover more about the city I call home. When a friend suggested the Mini Palais for lunch, I have to admit I had to Google it....

Café Primo Piano serves fresh food with good yet not extraordinary service in a contemporary setting. My strawberry salad was fresh and healthy, and the convenience of having a decent place to eat in-store is great. I'd definitely go there again. Café Primo Piano 26 Rue de...

I'm not a big fan of Emmanuelle Alt's style or her leadership of Vogue Paris, but until I saw her in the flesh last night, I never realised just how beautiful she is. There we were, two girls en route to Ralph Lauren, when who should appear but Madame Alt surrounded by Mademoiselle Agnès,...

Now that summer has finally arrived in Paris, my husband and I decided to head to Versailles. My husband hadn't been there for over 30 years and for me, it had been about 6 years. I packed water and some fresh fruit for our road-trip, only to discover that the drive was only 26 minutes long....
