Tour de France: Paris, 6ème – Jesus Year Project
Some may see turning 30th as a major turning point, but for American Jenny Sundel, 33 is her “Jesus Year.” Determined to do something different and make it special, Jenny quit her job as an entertainment reporter in LA and up and moved to Paris. She documents life on her blog aptly named Jesus Year Project as a year of self-discovery, adventure, palindromes and Paris. I’m am also in complete awe of Jenny as she managed to get invited to Dîner en Blanc her first year in Paris – très jalouse! Don’t miss more from the ‘Tour de France’ of Parisian neighborhoods here.
Worth checking out in the 6th:

- eat: l’alcazar, 62 rue mazarine. check out the cool photographs on the wall. and the lounge on the first level.
- drink: prescription cocktail club, 23 rue mazarine. come for the well-mixed libations. stay for the awesome hat lamp.
- shop: heimstone, 23 rue du cherche-midi. edgy, yet feminine wares that could break the bank, displayed amid adorable vintage decor. conveniently located on my street so i can visit my (i wish) combat boots daily.
