Slightly over due blog as I some how picked up a dreaded summer cold and have been out for over a week now!
Despite feeling like death warmed up I've found the energy to rustle up a quick recap of my weekend break away with the girls.
PARIS WAS AMAZE!!!
There we have it! It was my first time in the capital, as I've been promising myself for years go and got distracted with other holidays! I finally went and I loved every minute of it, even the walking (those that know me well know that I detest walking or exercise of any kind!)
Where do I start........?!
As well as ticking this trip off my bucket list, I also went there for some inspiration for my next project. Paris is the perfect place for photo opportunities, so make sure your camera is at the ready!
I highly recommend seeing the Eiffel Tower at night (see pic below) words can not describe how stunning it is when it's lit up! A must see attraction.
Musee Du Louvre is also another amazing place. Such a beautiful museum (it's huge inside!) that takes you through the different centuries with various artifacts and paintings. I took so many pictures, but to be honest they don't do it any justice. I even managed to push my way to the front to see the Mona Lisa - she can attract a big crowd!
Definitely my all time favourite has to be the Yves Saint Laurent Museum. Out of all the things we wanted to see/ do I was adamant that I had to visit before I left. This place is fantastic (if you love fashion it's a must see) We didn't get chance to do some stuff as there was always a constant queue for some of the film showings of his work and we had so much to cram in whilst we were there. Just having the opportunity to get up close and look at his work and how much time effort and detail went into every single design and creation was truly breathtaking. I think at this point I had dusted off the cobwebs and started to be really inspired again. I had a tons of ideas whizzing around my head and was itching to get back home and start creating! It's highly unfortunate that this dreaded cold had decided to make an appearance during my stay and dampened my enthusiastic spirit when I got back to the UK, but I will be back on form......eventually!
If its a quick break with the girls that your looking for, then this is the place. Having a friend in the group that speaks fluent French and knows their way around, is always a bonus! Invest in one!
I would say that Paris is for all ages (for the kids and the big kids at heart,Disney Land isn't a million miles away and if I had the time I would of gone!) there is a lot of history, culture, good food and drink.
I can see why so many go there for romantic weekends and honeymoons, it is the perfect setting. I'm already making preparations to go back later this year.
My next post will be all about honeymoon destinations, so I will go into more detail about Paris on there.
In the meantime, I need to get some rest and some how figure out how I'm going to shake this cold! Any home made remedies are more than welcome as I'm running out of options and tissues!!
