Back in Paris: Adjusting to Life at a French Pace

After attending Brown University and spending two years in New York, Tory bought a one-way ticket to Paris to pursue her dream of becoming a writer (and of drinking wine at lunch). During her time in the City of Light, she chronicled the euphoric highs and the laughable lows of ex-pat life on her blog, A Moveable Beast. Though she's now based in New York, she travels frequently to Montreal and Brazil, and she'll use just about any excuse to jet to Paris ("I ran out of fleur de sel"). A regular contributor to Hip Paris, Tory also writes for New York Magazine, Time Out New York, and she is a co-author of's Guide To Life After College. View Tory Hoen's Website

adore the melange of photos! quite a mood board. but where is the photo taken up top? looks like such a chic comfy cafe…only Paris could have both at once 🙂

Hi Lilla… it’s starting to look like we’re on the verge of spring! The snow is gone and I’ve switched from my winter coats to lighter alternatives. Tory

What a great blog about Paris!
I was just wondering, is there still snow and winter in Paris?
