Kickstarting a Sexy Guide

Secrets of Paris blogger Heather Stimmler Hall launched a crowdfunding effort recently to finance the printing cost of the beautiful four-color second edition of her insider Paris guidebook, Naughty Paris: A Lady’s Guide to the Sexy City. The book will be released in December. Intrigued by her use of crowdfunding – and a longtime fan […]

Hug This Bear!

Ever been disappointed when a YouTube video or online TV clip is blocked to you because you are in France? There’s an app for that! Tunnelbear is a super quick download that serves as its own VPN–virtual private network. I Used it last night to watch an Oprah interview (for work, I swear!). Apparently it […]

The advertisements for luxury goods, office supplies and electronics that line the city’s pristine boulevards, however, can be a jarring juxtaposition. Artist Etienne Lavie sought to illustrate what the city might look like if classical […]

Beyond Regifting

It’s tacky enough to regift a Christmas present. But selling it online? Not beyond the pale for PriceMinister.

A New App for Paris

At tea at Mariage Freres in the 6th arrondissement, Remi Morlot told me about a smartphone app he’s developing that sounds like it could solve longstanding problems for visitors to Paris. One issue involves the standard book guide to the city. You can’t be expected to memorize the info, but you also don’t want to […]
