If you happen to be in Paris this weekend definitely make an appointment to go see the home and painting studio of Le Corbusier. And just in case you can’t make it there, here is a sneak peak how this master lived:

Sometimes the best point of view on a place comes from somewhere else. This guidebook to shopping in Paris was written by an Australian fashion blogger based in Melbourne and as far as I can tell, Australia is the only place you can get your hands on a copy. I found mine not in Melbourne, but Hobart at the State Cinema Bookstore (AUS $39).
What I love about this book is it gives well researched and proven itineraries for day long shopping excursions around different neighborhoods and includes opening hours, metro stops, web addresses, handy tips & reviews from a trusted voice and nearby distractions like cafes, gardens or even manicure spots. All in a well designed package complete with photos, maps, illustrations and a sense of humor. Exactly what every girl wants.
I’m madly devouring the contents of this book. Who knows, maybe a trip to Paris is in my future . . .
