Rennes à coup de cœur – City Guide

Rennes à coup de cœur city guide
Rennes city guide
We were so excited last weekend to be invited to the much anticipated launch party for the ‘Rennes à coup de cœur City Guide’.

Our friend Kahina organised the event and is the driving force behind this fabulous new city guide !  Packed full of inspiring local restaurants and must visit addresses, all the best hot-spots in Rennes have been featured.

Discover the perfect restaurants, bars and tea houses in the city.  Find out about new hotels, art galleries, music venues and much more !  The guide is great for all those who live in Rennes but also as a book for tourists visiting the region.

It was fun to be present at the event and meet so many people who not only appeared in the book but helped bring it to life.

If you love the Brittany region of France as much as us, you can pick up this guide book at – Forum du Livre

UK storms ! Rough seas and ferocious waves ……………….

We took these photos over Christmas during our holidays in Wales.  The ferocity of the waves as they broke over the lighthouse and breakwater was quite something to see !  It was hard to stand up as the freezing winds were literally blowing us off our feet.  Foam was flying from the sea so much it looked like snow and peoples faces were bright red with the cold even though we were all wrapped up with hats, scarves and gloves.

It was definitely worth being at the seafront to witness some of these really spectacular waves!

The lighthouse in these photographs was the last in the UK to be powered by coal and gas and is over 150 years old.  Even though it stands several metres tall, it’s completely dwarfed by some of these waves.

French Blossom products featured on French Television………………….

We were lucky enough to have two products from the French Blossom boutique featured on television here in France a few days ago.  The television programme is called Deco.fr and follows a designer who carries out complete room makeovers. – We all know these kind of shows, I think they must exist in every country but they are interesting to watch ! – The images from the television show are a little blurry but I thought I would add them just for fun to this blog post.

Our products were featured in a room being transformed into a magical circus theme ! The two products selected (in the images above) were the circus wall sticker from Mimi Lou and the bright Elephant cushion from Mini Majesty that is Exclusive to French Blossom and is Handmade in France.
Have a great weekend !
