The sun shone this week in Paris and the weather went from 0 to 15 and so did our mood. We are skipping around Paris, almost hugging strangers with happiness. It is so good to see the sun god shining his light down on us. Hallelujah! Things were getting dark there for a moment.
This post has nothing to do with photography (except the wonderful link at the end) but these links I adored this week on the net and even a photographer needs a little juice, fun stuff, wanderings and inspiration when Spring has sprung. So here is my pick of this weeks wonderful links.

I am going to open the windows, pull back the curtains and freshen the apartment with a little spring magic using these natural personalised room scents. What a fabulous idea to give the house a little scent of citrus and herb after our long and stuffy winter. Get the recipes here. Love them..
