Follow me as I learn to live like a local—eating, shopping, hanging out—
adding new places as I go along. Not always glamorous, but 100% Parisian.
Lisa Anselmo, a writer and creative director, started traveling to Paris regularly 12 years
ago—at first, to cover the fashion trade shows
for a lifestyle website. But soon, she had
cultivated friends—both Parisians and
expats—and after over a decade of visits,
had built another life across the ocean.
In 2012, after the death of her mother
from breast cancer, she decided to seize
the day and make her other life official,
buying an apartment in Paris’s Right Bank.
One bold move led to a changed life.
Her memoir, My (Part-Time) Paris Life,
chronicles this journey.
