Musée de la Parfumerie

Junior year of university life has come to an end while I'm ecstatic to be on break, I just feel very lost. My sister and I were talking the other day and came to the conclusion that our autobiographies would be titled "We f**cked up." I think that sums things up really nicely. 


So as I mentioned, I'm on summer break. I'm trying to make the most of the 3 months I have left here in Paris. At the same time, I'm taking more shifts at work  to save up for my Europe trip which I have yet to plan. I also have an internship coming up, which I'm really looking forward to.


One of the things I wanted to do in France was to go to as many bakeries as I can. I've gone to several throughout my stay but always end up going for the baguettes at supermarkets because they're about half the price and frankly, quite good. I decided to start with La Coulee Verte to buy some bread for breakfast. 

ということで、今朝はLa Coulée Verte というパン屋さんで朝食のパンをかってきました。

I went with the original croissant, which was quite soft and chewy after I heated it, as well as the traditional chocolate bread (<-I forgot the actual name but it had the word traditional and chocolate in it). This one was packed with a slightly bitter chocolate and the bread itself had a bit of a sponges texture. I love that they added a bit of glaze on the top. 


I found this lovely plant on the way home.  I'm wondering what it's called...


I stopped by Fragonard's Musée de la Parfumerie located on Rue Scribe in the afternoon. I don't know what it is about perfumes but things related to scent are something that really fascinate me. Out of all things fashion and beauty, I would say that perfumes are the most intriguing. 

お昼にFragonardのMusée de la Parfumerieという香水に関するミュージアムに行ってきました。香水もそうですが、匂いに関するものはとても興味があります。ジャンルが全然違いますが、昔学校から帰ってきて、ガレージからその夜のご飯を匂いで当てていたのを思い出します。そんなこともあって、嗅覚にはちょっと自信があります。

There is a free tour of the small museum. There was an English speaking group before me so I snuck in with them, but they happened to all be from one giant group of tourists from India so they kept stealing glances at me. 
I must of looked really out of place haha It was an interesting experience but I was too caught up in what the tour guide was saying. 


It was a lovely day out. 
Jardin de Tuileries was the perfect spot to chill out on the shade and work on this post. 

とってもキレイな天気なのでバイト前にJardin de Tuilerieで日向ぼっこしながら、このブログを書いてます。

Lychee boba. 




  1. 風景の写真見ると気持ちがいいね。スカーッとする。ブルーの葉っぱはツタの葉と思うよ。初めて見たわ。その左に赤い花があるけどゼラニュームです。葉、花、がブルーというのは珍しいんだよね。

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。

前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。

There are days when it is just not my day. Today's that day.
I literally spent all morning lying down catching up on Vlogmas videos and then sitting down at the library reading document after document for my I could not have been more mute and yet I feel absolutely drained. And I had actually intended to write a few pages for my thesis but I have absolutely no motivation and ended up doing the "easy stuff" and just collected data.

On a brighter note, I finally got a haircut. My reason for liking to have shorter hair in the winter is quite simple: I hate having my hair get static-y after wrapping it around with my scarf. Japan has this wonderful opportunity to be a "Cut Model" and get a haircut for maybe a fourth or a fifth of the original price. Basically, trainees or assistants of the salons practice different styles on you and maybe snap a few before and after photos. Some people prefer to have their hair done by professionals but ho…


Hello again.
I'm alive and well and slightly busier/have more responsibility on my hands  since the last time that I posted. Let's just first begin by saying that I am officially a college graduate. Here's the cake and plate of gigantic Gyozas that I celebrated with: 
大学を卒業しました。 台風直撃前で良かったです。 お祝い用のケーキと巨大餃子。

I'm starting my new job soon in Hakata, which is located in the Fukuoka prefecture.  I've moved into my new apartment, which I'm really loving but the last two months have just been such a whirlwind of prepping for graduation, moving, and getting things ready for my new job, that I'm just glad I can see finally start seeing an end to the commotion. Of course work is going to be a whole new journey but for the time being, I'm glad I have a roof over my head. My room has this loft and the stairs going up to it is basically a bunch of shelves. It's my bookshelf for now and it's looking pretty cool. I have a couple more books getting sent over an…
