Paris (im)perfect
Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, she moved to France on - no exaggerating - a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan.

  • Bastille Day Bonanza 5 months ago Friends! Happy Bastille Day. Or as we say here, the 14th of July. After a week of gray and rain (some downpours historically torrential!), the skies cleared up for France’s national ball. As per usual, it seems I’m spending more time gallivanting and less time checking in. So! A few snapshots...
  • Paris Summer Update 6 months ago Friends! I’ve already fallen off duty in documenting my forays in the City of Light. Turns out I’m too busy relishing my time in Paris to sit down and report on it. Sometimes life is to live! The days are fun and full (how could I forget how much I adore the long nights, light […]
  • Lost in Frenchlation 6 months ago Friends! I arrived in Paris, just in time for a heatwave and the last round of legislative voting. I also finally made it to an event I’ve been invited to for well over a year. Rarely do I make plans for the same day I land (jetlag, anyone?), but the evening’s opportunity was too good […]
  • "A Paris Year" by Janice MacLeod: Author Interview (+ GIVEAWAY!) 6 months ago Janice MacLeod is the New York Times bestselling author of Paris Letters, a charming memoir of a Canadian copywriter’s leap from corporate day job to a creative life in the City of Light. MacLeod is back with her second book now. A Paris Year is less memoir and more sophisticated visual journal....
  • (Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Eiffel Tower Excitement 6 months ago So you know I’m committed to offbeat adventures and seeing the City of Light in new ways. But I watched this video and wondered: would I be willing to do this? (Email readers, you’ll have to click to the blog to view. You might want to turn down your sound if you’re at work, too!). […]

Paris (im)perfect is a blog much viewed and appreciated by ex-pats, Parisians and a wider global audience. Sion has that special gift of bringing this wonderful city to life with a most sensitive and delicate touch. As a Paris blogger myself, Paris (im)perfect sets the standard to which I aspire.

I love Paris (im)perfect! It's interesting, well-written, fun, and appeals to me because I hope to become an ex-pat in France someday myself.

Paris (im)perfect makes me miss the good and laugh at the not so good little things that come with living in the City of Lights. Wonderfully insightful.

I love this blog. I am also an expat in Paris, and Sion's writing resonates with me. Bravo Sion, I'll continue to be a reader for as long as you put ink to paper (in the digital sense as well).

This blog is great. It's about Paris, but so much more. The great thing is that Sion is actually as cool as she sounds.

I am a freelance writer and I love everything Paris. When I came across Sion's blog through our mutual friend a few years ago, I found the exact window into French life I didn't know I was missing out on. I enjoy reading her perspective on life in Paris and watching her writing career grow.

Sion's blog keeps me sane in the City of Little Light! Gray Paree is a bit brighter thanks to Sion's stories and insights, and best of all, fabulous New Yorky sense of humor. Paris is imperfect, but Sion is pure perfection!

Sion's blog is terrific! Her writing style is accessible and elegant at once. She has an artist's gift: she captures everyday moments in a beautiful way that enables many other people to relate their own experiences. Her blog is comforting, inspiring, and real.

Absolutely love Sion's writings and sharings of her journey through her days in Paris on her blog Paris (im)perfect. She makes me feel connected to both Paris and to a bigger world, all through her words. Superb.

Paris (im)perfect is real and from the heart. It's a blog for readers who are interested in not only literature, Paris, or international living, but for those who want to read an excellent writer with a truly authentic voice.

Stumbling upon this blog (in pursuit of another internet quest) was serendipity. As a one-time expat in Paris, I relate to so many of Sion's insights and ambivalences. Her writing style is delightful, and I really feel the person behind the thoughts. Thoroughly enjoying it!

I recently discovered Sion's blog - and Sion - and I'm looking forward to reading and discussing more of her beautiful and inspiring perspective and take on life, Paris, and France in general.
