Chic Eats- Intelligentsia

If you’ve been reading my previous posts or following me on Instagram you already know that I am currently in Paris.  I arrived here a few days early to enjoy this beautiful place before Paris Fashion Week begins. I’m so excited to be here to visit all of the beautiful sites and enjoy as many cafe’s as I possibly can while I am here. But as much as I like to travel I also love my usual routine. On a regular Monday at home usually consists of a visit to a flower shop to pick up my favorite flowers. During this particular visit, I picked up these Ranunculus roses at Clementine Floral Works. I adore these flowers because they closely resemble Peonies. And since Peonies are hard to find during this season I love getting these roses in a soft pink or white for the office.

I love that this flower shop is right next to a lovely coffee shop I frequent called Intelligentsia. Which makes make Monday routine that much more easy. I’ll pick up a few florals and head over to Intelligentsia to pick up some coffee. Although I love my usual Americano or Dark Roast from Starbucks (all black no sugar or cream) whenever I’m at a good coffee shop, I will get an almond milk latte. My body doesn’t digest soy or regular milk properly so I’m only able to drink lattes when almond milk is available.

Speaking of coffee, one of my favorite things to do is to discover small coffee shops or boutique cafes. So you can’t even image how excited I am to start drinking as many lattes and macaroons while discovering new cafes here in Paris. I’ve only been here shortly, but I’m already so inspired by the beauty of this city,

Intelligentsia in NYC is one of my favorites to visit for a cup of coffee. Lovely to see the one on the west coast! Also, I’m a BIG lover of peonies, so great choice :) Have a lovely week, Chriselle! x

Hello Chriselle! I absolutely love what you do. You have such a great style and its something that I admire! You’re such a creative person. I’ve noticed that sometimes you need photographers when you travel. If you’re ever down in South Florida, I would love to shoot you your outfits or anything else you might need. I’ve already emailed you more about it. I’m a photographer in Miami. Can’t wait to see more of your ideas :)

Genesis ( February 24, 2014 at 2:22 PM )

Ahhhh same here! I love love to “discover” cafes because besides hiking and walking around places, I love to sit down to a good brew while reading (and sometimes blogging) :D How funny! I almost went to Intelligentsia today but ended up trying Brewwell instead. Have you been there Chriselle? It’s nice and open, and very delicious coffee!
