A lazy Saturday afternoon — all my shopping is finished, the wood is stacked in the fireplace waiting to be lighted for cocktails, and my bouquets are all arranged. . . So I thought this would be a good moment to answer your questions about those adorable pochettes a message I wrote about last Wednesday (just scroll down).
Babette’s boutique, where I buy them, is out here in the country which does not make it convenient for those of you who will be coming to Paris this year. If you click here you will be taken to Petite Mendigote, where you can order them if you would like.
You’ll also see in the header of the site the button where you can click on boutiques that sell the brand’s products.
As I said, they are small but I always manage to fill them with a few of my favorite French products. I gave one to my wonderful friend, Trisha Malcolm, on Thursday (scroll on down again) and in it I managed to squeeze in:
- Les Gouttes Bleues, those fantastic blue eyedrops that all the professional makeup artists in the world have in their bag of tricks.
- Mixa sparkly barely there color lip balm.
- L‘Oreal BB blush gel. (My new crush and I hear it’s not available outside France.)
