Life at the loft is good. Yesterday was the most beautiful, warm day I've had in Paris since December (because December had some weirdly warm days). Since I moved in in January, I've been posting pictures on Instagram and Facebook, talking about how wonderful it is here, but it's also been insanely cold – outside but in the loft as well. So I would spend evenings basically frozen and unable to do anything. Right now I'm wearing a t-shirt, sweatpants and socks. One week ago I couldn't fathom the thought of not covering every inch of my body. Gloves were necessary inside my home.
That was a car selfie. Moving day (luckily a very sunny day, could you imagine moving in the rain?!) when the car was so so so so full of my stuff and there was hardly even room for me. I've been trying to get rid of more clothes and things (I sold two dresses and have a small donation bag) because now that I have a small room and other people to live with, I realize I need to do this. Quicker. Less is more.
I've been going to the gym four mornings a week and loving it! Especially since I started eating and drinking everything in sight. For a week now, I've been taking much better care of myself. It was getting out of hand!
Walking around Paris with my (currently sick) housemate Peter. We have fun!
My housemates are Ruth and Peter. There are three of us, and it seems like we need to buy coffee every two days! So much caffeine in our bodies at all time.
Movie nights are a thing here. With the projector and the huge walls, it's just absolute perfection. We've watched many, many movies. On my first night here we watched the classic Casablanca (my choice). So far, we've watched films such as Interstellar (absolutely BRILLIANT), The African Queen, North by Northwest, This Philadelphia Story, The Hateful Eight, Labyrinth, The Big Lebowski, The Big Short, Brooklyn... Any recommendations of films we should watch next?
I should have another dinner party soon. I love having people over. So this is life in Paris for me at the moment... More pictures soon! Have a great weekend everyone. x
