Working for the summers.



I look at this and it reminds me of my summer dreams of far away... looking at the moment at some flats in Belguim and Paris. There are so many great sites that have short term apartment rentals at amazing deals. And just discovered a new one from Joanna at Cup of Joe called, Havin in Paris.



The rooms come equipped with any and all amenities to feel at home.. I am ready to pack my bags! (If I wanted to dream really big, I would have homes in NYC, Belgium and Paris) come on Lottery!! ;)

Oh how lovely, what a beautiful space. Thanks so much for sharing this information. How wonderful it would be to have a place such as this to escape to in Paris, Belgium, whereever, I don't care. Just give me a passport, a visa, and a plane ticket! Shooooom!

Have a wonderful week, my lovely! I will be checking out that site!

I just stalked over from Liz' blog (after going ga-ga over your amazing work) and I'm loving your blog as well! I would definitely recommend a furnished apartment in Paris (in fact, I'm living in one right now)... it also eliminates the hassle of paying extra for bills and other fees, plus you'll feel more at home. If you need any help with these, please let me know :) Most sites are decent, although I was lucky enough to view some apartments first and they looked *nothing* like they did in the pics unfortunately. Oh, and I def. wouldn't mind apartments in NYC, Belgium (and perhaps one in Italy) either ;-)

Ediot said...

ah. i love apartment looking.. i just cant help that i love moving. the first pic is amazing. youve got a great blog btw.

about the boots. theyre too pricey im afraid.. i wish i just win big at a lottery or something.then ill def. buy them
