Hello my name is Aisling I am the founder of TrésorParisien. I Launched TrésorParisien just over 12 months ago and although I have been a little shy up until now, I thought it was about time to introduce myself and share the story behind TrésorParisien with you. Readers often ask me, ‘how did I come up with the idea of TrésorParisien, what is TrésorParisien about, what does Trésor mean, who writes the articles and takes the photos, and who is behind the site’? So today I thought I would shed light on some of your curiosities and share my story…

When I first moved to Paris I was captivated and inspired by the city and I completely fell for its magic and special charm. Along with the exciting opportunity to live in the city of my dreams, I also faced the challenge of adapting to Parisian life; where to go, what to do and of course how do dress like a Parisian. I needed inspiration. Looking around I couldn’t find anything online that spoke directly to me so I bought a bike, a camera and came up with the idea of creating a place online where I could share my discoveries, experiences and inspirations in Paris.

TrésorParisien is my story of discovery, of Parisien style, of what’s happening and where to go in Paris. It’s less about the obvious splendours and more about unveiling the truly unique and often hidden gems/details (or trésors meaning treasure in French). It’s a guide but not in the traditional sense, it’s more like a signpost directing you to some of the unique and original places in Paris.

From the classical cafés of St Germain, to inspiring street style or a cosy little bistro, I take my readers on a journey of discovery through Paris. I write all the content mostly from my apartment in Paris and nearby cafés that have become like my office in Paris. I am not a photographer but it’s a passion that came about when I moved to Paris. I capture all the photos that you see on the site with a Leica camera.

It’s been a great adventure so far and I have met and collaborated with some great people along the way, like the lovely Carin who captured these photos of me in one of my favorite places in Paris, ‘Le Jardin du Palais Royal’.

I hope you now have a better idea of the story and the person behind the scenes. I look forward to sharing with you more of my inspirations and discoveries from Paris. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email me editor@tresorparisien.com. You can follow me on my discovery of Paris here and I keep you updated with all things Parisien here.
