{ daily indulgences: paris ~ day 2 }

Upon discovering the dreamy watercolors of Carol Gillott and her Parisian-inspired art blog, ParisBreakfasts, I was immediately transported back to this quintessential Parisian way of life.

Carol mixes raw pigments herself (with Parisian water of course) to create her own secret formula paints.

The result adds a granular richness and unique intensity to the paintings that portray her daily adventures in Paris' pastry and chocolate shops. 

Beyond a simple art blog, ParisBreakfasts offers photos, insider travel tips and details of some of Paris' best kept secrets, while also sharing special finds in New York--Carol's home between jaunts to Paris. A quick browse of her portfolio and you, too, will fall in love with her inspiring collection of paintings which are featured here. 

To satisfy your daily cravings (sans calories), sign up for ParisBreakfasts' weekday newsletter hereBetter yet, indulge in one of Carol's decadent creations yourself by contacting her directly for purchase details.
