This is a somewhat random lifestyle blog featuring everything from knick-knacks to landscapes from the Rocky Mountains to the Parisian skyline, delicious places for grub and most importantly notes on life. It is a portal filled with splendor and pretty things, yummy snacks and a glimpse at culture and friendships. Here you’ll also find tips for the Paris and other places. It’s refreshing to stop and smell the roses every time and again.
I’m Meg, a Denver native, Parisian since 2008. My story with France has been intertwined with my Rocky Mountain roots since I was a pre-teen, and somehow my life here has fallen into place. Digital Content Manager in the luxury industry by day, this blog is my creative outlet.
WHAT DOES “DE QUELLE PLANETE ES TU” MEAN?
It translates to “what planet are you from?”. I first found this fabulous question in the book Le Petit Prince by Antoine Saint-Exupéry. I don’t want to give away too much because I think every human being should read this book, but basically it’s a pretty basic question that brings up some not quite so basic ways of thinking. It’s just so good. The world is an oyster.
WAIT, ACTUALLY, WHERE DID “DE QUELLE PLANETE ES TU” GO?
DQPET has retired, and the blog now sports just my name. It was time for a new era.
I’M COMING TO PARIS. WHERE DO I START?
I still have a big to do list and I’ve been here almost 10 years! That said, you can check out my favorite spots so far in my Paris city guide or on Instagram thanks to #pariswithmeg.
WHO DESIGNS YOUR BLOG?
I have a theme that I purchased from The Theme Foundry, and I customize the CSS myself. The font I created myself with iFontMaker and the icons I all do myself. I’m constantly finding new ways to modify by learning new techi skills, which is a hobby of mine. If anything is done by someone else, I will credit that person.
WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU USE?
I used to use a Nikon D5100 with various lenses, but now I’m devoted to my Fujifilm X100T.
ARE YOU HALF FRENCH? HOW DID YOU LEARN FRENCH?
No, I am 100% American from two very American parents. And proud! However, I did spend a summer in Paris when I was 14 taking French classes, and a year of high school in France (Normandy). After coming back for my senior year of high school, then moved back for Uni. Been here ever since!
CAN I LINK BACK TO YOU?
Of course! Sharing is the best. My only request is that if you use my photographs, it would be wonderful if you could link back to the post they were posted in.
