Paris // 2

Friday, 28 August 2015

Hi lovely readers! I'm back with the second instalment of my Paris posts and if I remember correctly I had just left off after enjoying a delicious lunch in Montmartre. After our meal we headed off to the metro once again to make our way to the Arc de Triomphe.

It's so beautiful from a distance but even more impressive when you go right up to it and see all the detail. The view back out over the Champs-Élysées is pretty impressive too!

We hung around in this area for quite a while, enjoying the lovely weather and making a quick visit to Sephora before travelling to our next destination - the Louvre.

 I absolutely love the Louvre, it's like magic to me! I just think it's so cool how all these classic pieces of art that you see in films are in there like the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo and you can actually just go right up to the real thing! Maybe that's just me being a nerd but honestly the whole place is so beautiful. This room was my favourite...
So stunning! I could just stay in there for hours staring at all the art work it was incredible. After we'd had enough of being cultured we went back to the hotel, freshened up (after lying on our beds for like an hour) then went back out for a spot of food and wine.
It was so lovely to chat over a relaxed meal and have a few drinks to celebrate all of us graduating and turning 21 this year, though we didn't stay out too late because we had to be up early again the next day for DISNEYLAAAAAND.
Another 6am start to make sure we didn't miss the 8 o'clock bus, but the excitement was enough to keep us going!
From start to finish the whole day was so much fun and we laughed the entire time, I actually couldn't have wished for a more perfect day! All the rides were so great and the queues weren't even that long. I'm a huge fan of rollercoasters so space mountain was a definite favourite of mine but the buzz lightyear laser blast had to be a close second - it definitely brought out my competitive side.
We were absolutely pooped when got back to the centre of Paris, not helped by the fact we couldn't find the Disneyland exit, nearly missed our bus and spent the last half an hour running round like headless chickens. When we did get back we stumbled into the first food place we could find, which luckily for us turned out to be a super nice handmade burger bar. We spent the evening munching on hand cooked chips dipped in guacamole - a perfect way to spend our last night in Paris.
We had to squeeze a lot in on our last day before our flight - another early start - but it was so worth it for these views!
We couldn't miss the opportunity to visit the Eiffel Tower before we left! It was such a beautiful morning for it as well so we were so glad we made the effort to get down there early.
Unfortunately that's the last of my Paris pictures as we had to catch our flight home after that and return to reality, but I made some incredible memories with some incredible friends and had a magical time while I was there. I hope you've enjoyed the last two posts and thanks for reading!

Paris // 1

Wednesday, 19 August 2015

As some of you might know if you follow my instagram I recently got back from the most amazing trip to Paris! I went with my two best friends so obviously we had an absolute blast and took loads of pictures while we were there. I'm so excited to share our trip with you and fill you in on everything we did, but just so I get to ramble on a bit more than usual I decided to split it up into two posts!

We arrived at the airport bright and early and tucked into some tasty breakfast before excitedly hopping onto our flight. The flight only lasted an hour so we landed almost straight away and then travelled through Paris to our hotel. After checking in and freshening up we got on the metro and made our way to Notre Dame.
After visiting Notre Dame and strolling round the area we got the metro back to our hotel and found somewhere to eat before getting an early night in anticipation for our 6am alarms!
Following our early morning selfie we made our way out of the hotel to find a cute Parisian breakfast spot and ended up in this lovely café.

Waffles, crepes and fruit smoothies were on the menu, although I think more time was spent photographing the food than actually eating it! It did look very pretty though. After we'd finished - and taken a few more selfies obviously - it was time to make our way back to the metro.

Next stop - Montmartre! The home of the stunning Sacré-Cœur. This is absolutely one of my favourite areas and is seriously beautiful. It's filled with cute shops, cafes, talented portrait artists and amazing views.
Now for the long trek up...
You aren't allowed to take pictures inside the Sacré-Cœur but I can tell you now it's absolutely stunning. We sat inside for a while and it was so peaceful just being in there, I would definitely recommend going inside if you ever visit the area.
After the Sacré-Cœur we went for another wander and then found ourselves some food. Pasta for me and steak for my girls!
Then after our lovely meal we hopped back onto the metro to play tourists somewhere else... which I'll tell you all about in my next post!

Jumpsuit - Topshop // Jacket - Vintage
With so many people rocking double denim right now I thought I would dive right in and try to pull off the look myself! The topshop jumpsuit is a really unique design and I love how it comes in with the cut-out triangle at the waist - it's quite slimming in that respect. Another huge thing I love about it is the pockets just because they add a bit more of a casual feel to the design so it looks less statement and more suited to every day wear.

With the shade of the jumpsuit being so dark I decided to pair it with the light denim jacket just for a bit of contrast! What do you think of the look? Is denim on denim something you would usually go for or it is just overkill? Let me know in the comments!
