I love Paris in the summer, when it sizzles.


Gosh I look really rather depressed in this photo, but believe I am not. I am so excited about my paris trip with lyzi that I cant contain my excitement, it is slowly creeping up on us and i have so many places I wish to visit. I have had some really lovely recommendations from you lovelies about where to visit once we are over there. If you have any other places in paris you think we should look into seeing that would be fab
Our hotel is near the Moulin Rouge so that is somewhere i really want to visit. 
I have a strange memory of when I was a child where i was on a boat on the Seine and we sailed past the smallest house in paris, I want to visit that place again, I found this little video how cute is it..
 The Sacre-coeur is a must, the view from the step is something to behold also on the tourist route i wish to visit Notre Dame, i never got to go inside so that would be something i would love to do. I am so looking forward to discovering little restaurants, Boulangeries and flea markets.  
All I have been thinking about is what I will be wearing as I stroll down the busy streets.
I will be doing a Parisian inspired giveaway at the start of August inspired by mine and Lyzi's Parisian adventure where there will be plenty of goodies up for grabs inspired by our trip.  I am off to read my Parisian Chic: A style Guide.

  2. I went to Paris last week and my latest post is on the Sacre-Couer :) I'd recommend Laduree for their macaroons (they have a pop up shop on the champs-élysées).

  3. Yay I love Paris, when do you go?? Totally ignoring the cultural fun you'll have to make a trip to Sephora! I assume they still have one.

  4. If you're into flea markets, Les Puces de Saint ouen is a must! But save your pennies because you will not be going home empty handed! It's fabulous! Also Monets Garden is always, always worth a visit! It is so beautiful there xx

  6. I am dying to go back to Paris again. Last time I went was with school but I think it would be much better if I went again as with school we went by their plans.
