“Come join us for Happy Hour at artéfact before heading off for summer holidays to celebrate the release of Paris Cafes from A to Z guide.
Paris cafes from A to Z is a handy pocket guide of Paris cafés for every letter of the alphabet. It’s an illustration themed guide full of useful information on a diverse list of specialty cafés from local favorites down to café options off the beaten path.
We have been working for months on this project and we are excited to share it with you. Come meet the creators of the book Maya Dorsey of La Vie Locale ( editor) and Yukiko Noritake ( illustrations), and discover their other creative projects.

If you live in Paris and you love coffee then I suggest you head over to my girl Maya’s (aka @lavielocale) new IG account dedicated to great coffee spots in Paris!
Let me introduce you all to an amazing woman called Dina Yassin who is a dope fashion designer doing her own thing! Thank you for showing the world how beautiful our culture is. #habesha #eastafrica #tradition #fashion #lifestyle #myroots
Being a curly girl, one must think about what products to use and more or less have great knowledge of what ingredients works best for ones hair. I’m sure I’m not the only one who have had fair shares of bad hair days while figuring out how to maintain an afro in a climate that often works against it… Since my wifey and I share the same “struggle”, she came up with the best way to spend my b-day and took me to Aromazone to make our own natural hair products. When I was told the workshop would take three hours I thought I would be bored but I never had time to look at my watch! We had a blast mixing and heating up some oils and at the end, I left with three products perfectly adapted to my fro!
I often hook up with friends for drinks or dinner right after work and sometimes I don’t have time to go home and change before my rdv. Those days, I bring an item or two to work pimp things up before seeing my friends and I love how something like a belt, earrings or a bag can change your look completely. An item that can make your look go from “nice” to “banging” in one go is a bag from “Tonya Hawkes” ! A true “lifesaver”. #sod #pimpthelook #goboldorgohome

Honestly, I was scared af before the 10km race that I did a few weeks ago but we did it! Its been YEARS since I did a race like this but I was having a blast along the way. Well, the last 2km were hard I had the feeling that my booty transformed to a size Kim K but I managed to cross the finish line in one piece! Thank you ladies for motivating me to participate and I’m looking forward to the next race. #teamalmostparisienne #10kmpourelles #runners
Who knew that living here would make me a world champion in dog poop slalom?
