Seven years ago, while working at Lacoste, Julianne Fraser began traveling from New York to Paris on business when she fell in love with the city that inspired Hemingway and Matisse. By chance, Fraser met a Frenchman in New York who had just visited his hometown of Paris quite often. Soon they were married – Fraser quit his job, founded Dialogue New York, a digital and influencer marketing consultancy, and the two decided to split their time between the two major hubs.

For Fraser, the charm of Paris goes beyond the clichés you see in movies and TV shows. Its tale weaves its way through every nook and cranny of its 20 arrondissements, and this story reflects on those lucky enough to spend their days roaming the city’s cobblestone streets. Fraser’s relationship with Paris continues to deepen and become more intimate as she lives there.

Paris is full of beauty and wellness activities, and it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to planning your itinerary. Forward, Fraser presents us with a list of must-see places and things to do in the City of Lights.

“I discovered Blanche a few years ago while looking for a fully equipped Parisian gym and joined her as soon as I saw the spa. This gym is unlike any that I have known in New York, it has two levels of equipment, a floor for group lessons like kickboxing and Pilates, a superb swimming pool and steam room / sauna, and a chic café to enjoy the aftermath. I can spend a full day at Blanche, work out in the morning, spend 20 minutes in the steam room, then make my appointment at the restaurant. ”

“I immediately connected with David from the moment I walked into his living room in Paris. As an Australian who thrived in Paris for years, David warmly welcomed me into his beautiful space and offered me great advice and support from one expat to another. The same kindness is extended to his entire team – I can spend hours there sipping espresso on the terrace or chatting with the staff. also the man behind my recently cut blunt bob, which I did on the day I returned to Paris in early June. “

“Mad et Len is a perfume house based in the south of France, but they also have a boutique in the Vivianne gallery in Paris. They offer potpourri boxes that are hand made of iron with scented crystals. or lava stones. These are not only wonderful decorative pieces for your home, but you can also control the strength of the scent by filling the box with a perfume dropper every few months . My favorite scent is Spiritual – it keeps me alert and somehow seems to stimulate my creativity. ”
