While we’re getting ready for a festive month, in some cities the first snowfall has already been celebrated, and morning coffee is being taken more and more often under the covers, even though I just discovered a pretty café in my neighbourhood.

Here in Paris the days are fading rapidly, but we are enjoying some pretty romantic sunsets while walking longing La Seine.

Avenue Montaigne already sparkles in gold, while the Champs Elysées is in red. Shop Windows are filled with fairy lights and garlands.

Christmas preparations will soon be quite intensive, and while you can find thousands of gifts ideas for your dear ones, here is a wishlist of beautiful things for your own self-care.

This is the first time in the 6 years since I moved to France that I am really happy about Christmas coming because I’ll actually have family over for a few days and I am not going to be alone again.

Chic Gift-Wrapping Inspiration

ONE OF OUR VERY favourite things to do during the holidays is to spend an evening by the fire with a glass of cava, wrapping presents with Christmas music on and a mess of kraft paper, rolls of satin, velvet and grosgrain ribbon spread all over the living room floor.

IT’S MID-DECEMBER and the holidays are in full-swing and everyone in the village seems to already be on Christmas vacation. Here at TIG, we’re still working, but are looking forward to taking some (much-needed!) time off at the end of the week.

Holiday 2019 Inspiration: Christmastime in London

WHILE IT MAY BE TRUE that London has certainly has been merrier, what’s done is done and all we can do now is make the best of things.

The TIG Playlist: The Most Underrated Songs of 2019

Playlist 12.15.19 : Five Songs for the Weekend

The line between Dan Snaith’s different musical aliases has always been pretty clear cut. As Caribou, his main gig since 2005, he’s tackled an expansive mix of psychedelic soundscaping and wistful house music; as Daphni, he turns out stripped-down, sample-heavy club tracks.

Dana is a fragile dreamer, they say, arriving in Paris four years ago, for love, and the city has been constantly changing her life since then. Hers is a world of books, (Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Berest), expos, long walks sur les quais de Seine, pink skies, fine wine and peonies.
