Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? I’m still reeling from a magical weekend in Paris where HarperCollins France organised a tour to celebrate the launch of my Lagom book in French.

The weekend was made to feel even more special by Hotel Henriette – a small boutique hotel with a chic pied-à-terre feel tucked away in a quiet cobbled street in the 13th arrondissement.
