So This Was France



+ Getting a lovely tee-shirt in the sale in Kookai in St Malo (will hopefully feature in an outfit post sometime soon!)
+ Giant slabs of French nougat!
+ Discovering what can only be called Nylon Magazine's French cousin - Jalouse Magazine - it's so fantastic I'm going to have to dedicate an entire post to it!
+ Pretty damn cool bar window displays!
+ Raspberry macaroons!
+ More from St Malo, rose petal ice cream - it has to be one of the best things I've ever tasted!
+ Getting very excited much to my Dad's distress in the car on the way back from the bank when Maroon 5's new single 'Misery' came onto the French radio!
+ The beach themed bar that's floor was covered in sand!
+ Sitting in my kitchen reading French fashion magazines.
+ Diablo Fraise, the best non alcoholic drink in the world, a.k.a. lemonade made with strawberry sirup, yum!
+ Mussels, aka. the traditional French seaside dish of Moules et Frites! I love the things and I had a lovely provincial version with red peppers and tomato in St Malo and some traditional marinated ones in a really nice and famous restaurant in Cancale!
+ Watching the oyster farming in Cancale, it was amazing to see how it was done, and the breathtaking view for the pier!
+ The restaurant in St Malo had a pink theme, and our wine came in a bag of ice!
+ Watching the entire first season of The West Wing on my laptop!
+ Taking long country walks with my Mum and taking pretty pictures of rural French life, this time around cut wood!

I had a fantastic time, and I can't wait to head back in three weeks time! Also, I think I may have a French themed giveaway in the works of all my favourite things I love and can only get over there... thoughts?
