This is a guest post by Lindsay Poulin at Context Travel. They have shared some of their expert advice on some fun new ways to discover the City of Light. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Paris is one of those cities where there is so much going on and so much to see in all the neighborhoods that, naturally, there are some areas that get overlooked. For me, that area is the Viaduc des Arts in the 12th arrondissement. I had been to the Bercy shopping area, to Bastille, to the Bois de Vincennes, and though I had driven by it a thousand times, I had never actually stopped and walked the Viaduc des Arts, a vast stretch of artists and artisans and cafes lining one side......

Moms-to-be as well as their offspring are dressed to the T and decked out in some of the hottest baby gear all year-round.

If you are expecting or in......

My second attempt at a blog post for Savoir Faire is in a field in which I feel a fair amount more comfortable! This week I’ve ditched the apron for a winter coat and will tell you a thing or two about what you could see being worn by men in Paris this winter. The first thing to note is that menswear in Paris is always high quality and independent. This is not only because Parisian men naturally have more pride in their looks (some would argue it is European fashion capital),......
