dream in December 2016, the creation and launch of his own brand – Blackhats Paris.
Originally from Benin, Steves blogs about lifestyle, fashion and travel and is instantly
identifiable by his headwear. Follow Steves on www.myblackhats.com or

Reflection Choice
Belinda started photography a year and a half ago to escape her daily routine. Escapism quickly turned into her passion. She loves taking photos from the rooftops where she feels free and has a keen eye for reflections in her photography, whether it be through water or mirrors, Belinda says “a perfect reflection is like dreaming eyes open.” See Belinda’s photograph on Instagram – @minouch__

Lighting Choice

Aurélie Guisiano is a photographer, graphic designer and journalist based in Paris. Her passion for photography started six years ago after traveling around the world, specifically her time in the US. Her passion for photography and Paris shines through her work as she captures the light, the colours, monuments and people in the scenes of her pictures. See Aurelie’s gallery as she wanders the streets of Paris on Instagram – @globalworming.

Spectacular Choice

Johan Tonnoir was “searching for freedom in a city of oppression”, when he rediscovered
the Parisian decor seen from above. The practice of Freerunning has helped Johan understand his physical and mental capacities and even more sophisticated ones, allowing him to gain self-confidence and find an escape from city pressures. Freerunning is a personal pleasure and a shared interest with his friends in the French Freerun Family. An idea that has become a passion and then a profession, that of moving one’s body as freely as possible in any environment. It is a way out when you find yourself locked up, but also a gateway to more magnificent places. Johan extends his gratitude to Simon Nogueira for the photo. Follow Johan and Simone on Instagram – @johantonnoir@simonnogueira

Grumpy in Paris – 5 ways to beat the upcoming ‘winter blues’

Living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world has its many perks. A wealth of galleries, museums, delicious food, beautiful walks and a melodic language under no matter what context. But all pros have their cons and one of the lesser points of Paris these days is the ‘rentrée effect’ where people have come back from their holidays, said goodbye to summer and are now waiting for winter (even though we’ve only just hit autumn). Here are some ways to beat those winter blues and enjoy the colder season ahead … […]
