February (+ valentines day) to do in Paris

February in Paris with a local experience to the hidden offbeat gems as well as a focus on valentines day things to do await you my loves in this months round up list. I’ll try to make is precise (more list style this month as I’m a bit behind!).

It’s been a white February (have you seen my insta stories?!). There is snow (that’s finally sticking around) in Paris and I couldn’t be happier. The other day I took you all on a skiing expedition late at night in Montmartre with a live insta-video.

THE ROMANTIC E-book

If you’re coming to celebrate Valentines Day or have a romantic experience, I’ve updated our bestselling e-book Romantic Paris.

Over the last 5 years, I’ve been planning weddings for couples here in Paris, working with the best hotels, vendors and obviously eating and drinking my way around with the blog. ūüôā¬† So it should come as no surprise that this 42-page E-book will tip you off on where to enjoy Paris as a foodie and romantic.
It gives you the best places to stay (for every budget), eat, drink, wander and includes a list of French words that will come in handy as well as a printable Paris Planner.
