Parted With





  

This place is definitely on my must see list next time I'm in London. Ohhhh the postage fees that will be parted with.

But, for those travelling from London to France, one little tip is take as much as you can to France with you and post it home from there. Ask for a boite rouge {red box} and fill 'em up. So much cheaper than posting from the UK, and really quick and reliable. My local post office recognised me after the third day, and when I walked through the door, "boite rouge madame?"

Ooh! I love that text art. It's so inspirational and so true! What perfect advice :) I read it after I finished decorating a wall of our new place today, but I think I did alright :)

Great tip! I'm going to France in October and was wondering how I was going to send home all my purchases. Do you think the boite rouge works internationally?
