Hello my dear!
I have really been out of the whole blogging thing for a while. So much that I forgot to write up a post on my Paris trip. I know, such a bad blogger. Anyway, I booked my plane ticket a couple of days before I left, how spontaneous, right?! I flew out of England by Birmingham Airport and enjoyed a little bit of duty free shopping, only at MAC because I thought things might be cheaper in France but unfortunately for me, it wasn't.
On the first full day, we went to Montmatre. This street is very touristy, kind of reminded me of Khao San Road in Bangkok. However, in France, the buildings are just so beautiful. I'm not much of an architect, if anything, I normally find them a little bit boring but not the buildings in Paris. I find myself aww and ahh over them.
Here is me in front of Sacre Couer, we went inside and I got told off for looking through the pictures on my camera with the camera on my lap. I think the guard was just being a dick because I didn't even look like/was trying to take pictures inside. On the other hand, there were plenty of people actually taking pictures inside and he didn't even say anything. Maybe he was on a little bit of a power trip and I was an easy target.
At Lafayette. This place made me think I was in Siam Paragon in Bangkok. Mainly because the large amount of Asian shoppers carrying designers bags and most of the sale assistants were also Asians.
If I have had better exchange rate, I'd have gone crazy at that place but I didn't so I just walked around swatching everything instead.
After that we went to look for Pierre Herme shop (there are two at Lafayette but they were quite small ones). On the way I took more pictures of pretty building, notice how the corner are never quite cornered...
Oh look at these lovely looking macaroons! This box costs 20 euros, which wasn't too bad. They were very yummy too.
However, considering I won't be able to find Pierre Herme in England, I thought I would buy myself a bigger macaroon. This one was particularly yummy because I love anything with fresh fruits. It has raspberries and lychee in the middle, NOM NOM NOM!
You can't go to Paris without visiting a few Pharmacies. I honestly couldn't believe how many skincare products they have in there. I think I was in a bit of a beauty blogger heaven.
That night we went to Eiffel Tower and took a boat tour. I took a bit of a nap on the boat tour...not that it was boring, it was just that I was very tired. Eiffel Tower is absolutely beautiful, especially when it sparkled for about 5 minutes every hour.
Next day, I took a walk on the Champs Élysées and walking towards Arc de Triomphe. It was such a pretty sunny day...until it started raining as soon as I walked out of Sephora.
Hello Sephora, the reason why I went for a walk on Champs Élysées but Sephora disappointed me. I didn't really find anything I like and most stuff were more expensive than if I were to buy them in England.
Arc de Triomphe looks incredible and I might have took way too many pictures of this place. I sat in front of it for ages
Front different side, I can only imagine how difficult it would be to drive around this roundabout.
Me in front of Arc de Triomphe! Wearing MAC Candy Yum Yum which I bought at duty free. I absolutely adore this lipstick.
At the end of the day, we went to Notre Dame. Again, I love beautiful building. That's pretty much all I done in Paris really.
