SO. Last weekend we went to Paris for PJ’s birthday. We’re both fortunate enough to live in a place that gets us there in 1 hour by train, and extremely lucky to not have this be our first trip to Paris.
But I think I’ve really taken for granted the times I’ve been before, and I really appreciated how lucky I am to be able to visit such a beautiful city (and eat such. incredible. food).
Thank the stars for booking websites because we stayed in the cutest area, right next to Les Folies de Bergere, just a 10 minute walk from both the Opera and Galeries Lafayette (which we obviously took advantage of…)
My favourite part of the weekend, beside spending some quality time with PJ and the amazing views, was the little games we played. Like finding the best little cafe for lunch (even when I thought I was going ot implode from lack of foodthank goodness Peej thinks my grumbling is ‘cute’).
Or our new favourite €10 challenge: we went to the top floor of Galeries Lafayette and tried to find the funniest/goofiest/most us thing for under the set amount. We came up with coasters, a magnet with the little prince and sheep, a fuzzy cat pen, and I had to get PJ a Godzilla card (monsters are a weird obsession of mine…)
But past all the oven-baked camembert, red wide and (crazy-good) Italian pizzas and cheesecake, we just explored. PJ took me all over the Marais, his favourite area, and I made him take a ride on les Bateaux Mouches, which he’d never done! Instead of fretting over what we had to do, we just did what we wanted. Which thankfully involved popping into Sephora and doing as much as possible to find some kicks for Peej.
I hope you enjoy my snaps as much as I enjoyed my trip!
THIS is my new favourite necklace. I love it so much and have been wearing it everyday since I got it – it reminds me of my favourite phrase: “Wander & Wonder”
This weekend was so much fun and we had such an amazing time going vintage shopping, looking for new places and visiting museums!
We ended up seeing the techno parade, which was amazing, and realised that my boyfriend has a better eye for vintage designer duds than I do. Outside of a cafe, he pointed to a shop window and pointed out the most amazing vintage LV travel trunks and I went in and really almost bought some green suede peep-toe Louboutins, but I had to control myself since they were wayyyyyy out of my budget. But I digress…
I can’t wait to the next time we go back. I will officially save up for at least one vintage buy. Bahhhh!
If you have any tips for places to visit, let me know <3
