It's nearly Christmas!/ C'est presque Noël!

Christmas is sneaking up on us...we've hit December!

My christmas work at L'Occitane is keeping me very busy,  therefore  posts have been rather scant..



 
So, this month I am going to share  short snapshots of  a French Christmas, enjoy!

 
Gallery Lafayette, Paris.



Gallery Lafayette would have to be the most beautiful department store I have ever seen! If you  have an opportunity to go there....go early!!  It  is EXTREMELY busy...especially when they are in sale mode..

It is a gorgeous building any time..but at christmas the  masters surpass themselves in the festive  decorating ring...in fact they have a special 'unveiling' of their christmas windows...usually including a celeb! I must say that their windows are 'themed' and pretty well  'out there'!  Such as 2011....a Rockin' Xmas.



Disney has made an appearance this year..........








Below is one of the window displays at Le Bon Marche, another beautiful old department store..the oldest  in Paris I think, and the most prestigious. The display is  of Paris, of course! Love it :)



Tis the season to be jolly :)


A bientôt, Gigi.
