I visited the Empress in Paris this past weekend and the first question everybody asked me was not "Did you have a great time/good weather?" or some such but "Did you do a lot of shopping?" I guess I am a bit predictable in that regard, ahem. As a matter of fact, the weather was so lovely (short-sleeves-weather on Sunday) that we spent most of our time sitting outside cafés, eating ice-cream and taking it easy. We saw two exhibitions, one on Condé Nast fashion photography (excellent!) and one in a tiny museum on "Barbie Retro Chic" (my choice and quite cute):
 Drink of our choice:
 One of the few shops I wanted to pop into was the Diptyque store (a sight in itself) where I bought two candles, one of them limited edition:
We were not quite the only ones who thought it was a great idea to sit in the park:
On Sunday, we did a boat tour on the Seine to further work on our tan and learn that most buildings had been burned down at one time (how can stones burn, by the way?).

Casual footwear to reflect our casual mood...
This weekend I'm in Venice and hoping for great weather and lots of Vaporetto rides!
