I can't remember the name of this sweet little boutique on the Ile St. Louis, but we strolled past it just about everyday. The minimalist white/glass packaging and white walls are accented only with the blue shop front and a few beautiful purple flowers. I never went in, because toddlers and glass bottles don't mix, but the serene atmosphere and simplicity inspired me. Last night as I was working on re-writing a spa menu for a client, I pulled up this photo, and it was just what I needed. After spending all day in the dirt and mud with the boys, I needed something girly. Yep ... this did it.

Oh…I love those little “lavender soap” boutiques(as my husband calls them)…we went to Provence 4 years ago for a week and my “City” husband would wait outside while I browsed and took in all the beauty…I think he was all perfumed out.The colours are so pretty and girlie…love the photo you found.
Have a good day…it’s snowing here again!
