Summer Lovin'

Need to cool down? These frozen champagne pops look as yummy as the packaging, don't you agree? 

From Fortum and Mason. I hope to get to London some time! I'm obsessed with this shop!

Rare New Arrivals at Paris Hotel Boutique!


Today we're unveiling some special pieces near and dear to my heart!

From my personal collection, we're offering some of the finest pieces of hotel silver from establishments like the Plaza Hotel in New York City, to this magnificent Art Deco, Broggi, Italy carving station.  From the late 19th century to the late 1930s, carving trolleys would be placed at the entrance of hotel or restaurant dining rooms so guests could view them upon arrival. They make a gorgeous statement, and are the ultimate dining accessory.

Additionally, our new arrivals include everything from accessories to oil portrait paintings!

You Ought to Be in Pictures!

I just discovered the iPhone App, "8 mm Vintage Camera" for Apple. It's so much fun!

You can film movies right from your phone and select the time period such as 1920s, Siena, 70s NOIR, and more! It even has the flickering, dust and scratches of old movies.

For $1.99, it's definitely worth it. Check out the App here.

Now I just have to brush up on my photography skills!

Happy weekend!

Jewelry Obsessed... Gem Gossip!

Aren't most of us obsessed with jewelry? I can never have enough in my personal collection, and always looking for the most interesting pieces to offer you at Paris Hotel Boutique.

Meet Danielle Miele, author of the well-known blog, Gem Gossip. Danielle and I have been mutual fans for years.

Danielle is a treasure trove of knowledge. She has been a jewelry collector since she was four years old, but her career in the jewelry business officially started in 2008 when she first began her successful blog.

Her jewelry blog, Gem Gossip, focuses on jewelry trends, antique and period jewelry, celebrity jewelry, as well as exclusive designer interviews. It is also a hub for gemstone and jewelry education, considering Danielle’s Graduate Gemologist studies through the Gemological Institute of America.

Looks at these date rings (above). I'm totally obsessed with them, thanks to Danielle's amazing collection. In fact, I just purchased my first one. Now I'm on the hunt.

Danielle travels the world covering jewelry stories, visiting stores and collecting rings. She has the best eye candy and is so informative about jewelry. She is definitely one you want to follow, whether it's her blog here or her wonderful posts on Instagram, here.
