Anonymous said: hi sweetie, your nails are fantastic ! definitely worth the price ;) I wanted to ask you, is it easy to find a decent appartment in Paris? Did you have an "ideal" arrondissement at first and where did you end up finding one?

Oh hi and thanks I agree I love them!

Regarding the appartment in Paris it is certainly not an easy task.

There’s too much demand for apts in Paris which lets the owners go way overbord with the price per month and also lets them be complete asses.
One has to pretty much stalk/push them because they either not answer your calls or they promise to contact you back and they don’t, or say the apt is yours and lease it to someone else… it’s pretty rough so the best advice I can give you {or anyone looking for one} is to plan ahead and be really patient.

And well to be honest I didn’t have it that rough, since I had the advantage of having a french person to deal with them {it’s easier for them to abuse when they know you’re a foreigner and more if you don’t speak french perfectly}.

And well if it had been for me I’d live in the 5th {the latin quarter} you know St Germain des Près all hip and chic or maybe in the 16th for the gorgeous view of the Eiffel Tower {and the clean streets} or the 2th for the location.

But I ended up in the 15th (which is probably on of the least touristic arrondissements in Paris) and though in the beginning I wasn’t thrilled {I wanted a penthouse in Ave. Montaigne lol} turns out it’s quite a nice place… I don’t live nor in the most chic nor fanciest place, but I already love it here.

Specially because I feel safe and comfortable, plus Flo & I have made out of our little apartment a warm cocoon :)

Oh how much would I love to have a bathtub… a huge beautiful victorian bathtub in the middle of a room filled with flowers and candles… and an amazing view of the city <3

I was seriously SHOCKED when I realize this is the depth of our closets "placards" 
Like, are you kidding me?? how am I supposed to fit all my clothes in such tiny place?¡? :o I&#8217;ll certainly have to upload a picture when it&#8217;s all there.
{Notice that I&#8217;m wearing my new Chanel&#8217;s Riva Vernis - gift from bf &lt;3 }

Omg we MAY have found an apartment. It’s between us and another person who wants it. I really hope we get it!!

My boyfriend will do a visit on Sat with the owners, hopefully by monday we’ll get an answer. 

If not, I really hope we find an awesome place perfect for us!
