Ten years ago, (or longer even? Oh man, much longer ago) I worked as a waitress at Chesterfield Café, a restaurant/bar in Paris, off the Champs Élysées. It was so much fun, and I was terrible at it. To quote one of the yelp reviews: that “service qui laisse à désirer”- that was me! I left something to be desired!
My point is, my hard on for France is totally merited. My little innocent Long Island Iced Tea drinking 19 year old self earned it. (Who drinks Long Island Iced Teas in Paris? And at work? I mean really. That should say everything there.)
So today’s Francophile bangles are both skinny and medium sized La Fontaine Bartholdi (it’s the chariots in the dreamy sky but actually based on a fontain in Lyon that represents France and her four rivers), cream Clous, and the Paris fleur de Lis by Maximal Art from my dad.

Haha hi to Bandit! I love the chariot one. It’s so pretty!!
Thank you! I like the horses stampeding from the clouds, it’s kind of magical.
Hi Margaret, the few times I was in Paris I always came with the feeling that no matter where I’d go for food the service was always “laisse à désirer”. I thought that was actually a must 😉
Haha! Very true, but I always delivered my laisse à désirer with a smile, which I think is less common.
Ahahah, and sometimes a smile is all it takes to save a restaurant meal. Native Parisian smiles are not that common though 😉
Those bracelets are to die for, I LOVE THEM. I always like posts that have a little something & background about the blogger, especially travel & experience stories.
Thank you! I just now realized, I tagged you as In the Library in my post earlier- but do you prefer Susan Elizabeth? I don’t understand the avatar stuff on here
Oh! No way I don’t care at all & it’s thoughtful of you to think of that on top of linking to me in that post. The avatar stuff is confusing, I’ve had a hard time just making simple adjustments or photo changes with it as stupid as that sounds.
