I was on holidays in my brother's home, in Paris, last week. I was born in Paris, like my mother and borther. I grew up in this town and also in Poitiers, an old town in the middle-west of France.

I've been to Italy when I was a little girl and I remember liking it a lot. And I love Italian food! I remember during that vacation in Italy I gained 10 pounds in 1 week from all the foods I ate. I would love to go back someday. A friend of mine went and bought 5 handbags and they are all so cute! I would love to go shopping in Italy for shoes and handbags. I think I would go crazy.

French women are like every women I think, but we have specific methods to take care of us. Like scandinavians with sauna and snow! brrr... lol

I know you're scandinavian Reija, and I would love to visite those countries.

As you can see, we read the same magazines, but inside is very different (except Glamour). I don't know if ELLE (SHE) is the same inside and keep its french touch', but I hope.

I think you have to visit it again!!! lol

You have to go to the right places and the good streets, and yes it's often cold in Paris... But in summer everybody swim into the basin of the Champs de Mars, in front of the Eiffel Tower, and it's funny.
