To say that I am excited to leave for a trip to Paris in a couple of days is an understatement. While I used to go four times a year when I worked at Bazaar, I haven’t recently been in a few years. I cannot wait to dress up, walk the city all day, go to the flea market, and of course, eat and shop. While I have my own list of places to go, I thought why not ask a TFI supporter, Rolla Wazni (if you don’t follow her IG, you should), who is the director of the contemporary art gallery Kamel Mennour for her recommendations. Some I know, some are new. Plus, I think it’s always good to have a Parisian’s perspective. This is just a list, mostly because I have a feeling I will post a lot on Paris once I’m back (and during trip on IG), and I don’t want you to have Paris burnout. But then, is that possible?
This is Rolla, who posts fewer pictures of herself than I do on social media. Thank you Rolla!
