We visited Conran Shop while in Paris which is a furniture and home accessories shop originally from London which stocks mostly iconic designer pieces for the home. We were impressed by the huge selection and managed to pick up a few things for ourselves while we were there.
Classic Eames molded plastic chairs with a variety of bases.
Huge selection of housewares and kitchen products we had fun browsing through.
Love this “Penguin Donkey” magazine rack by Isokon Plus.
Modern hourglasses in different shapes and sizes.
A selection of chairs and furniture pieces.
We’ll be sharing some of our finds from the trip shortly but in the meantime still have a lot more Paris posts coming your way so stay tuned!
Before the New Year we made a point to stop at Fancy Franks, a new gourmet hot dog shop in Toronto. Glamourized fast food is becoming a fast favorite of ours and fancy hot dogs were no exception.
We loved the old style glass Pepsi bottles and reclaimed wood communal tables. Overall the atmosphere was great and the staff were really friendly. Another bonus were the extra toppings like sriracha, which we’ve been putting on EVERYTHING lately!
Tons of options to choose from like from “Fancy Masala” to “Fancy-zza” – they need no explanation.
Daniel had “The Frankaphone” with smoked gruyere, horseradish cheddar, squeaky curds and honey dijon mayo and I had the “Franks Got Seoul” with kimchi, sesame seeds and scallions and two sides of fries. And of course, lots and lots of sriracha.
They also had mini donuts which were tempting had we not been so stuffed from our meal. Next time…
Overall they were probably the best (and most original) hot dogs we’ve had in awhile and we’re looking forward to heading back there for a quick bite soon!

While in Paris we stopped by the one of the vertical gardens designed by Patrick Blanc at Musée Du Quai Branly. Part of the museum is covered with hundreds of these beautiful and diverse different species of plants. We loved wandering around the area and snapped a few photos. Hello Eiffel Tower!
