Oh, Paris!

parisday16

Bonjour de Paris!

I’ve been living the Paris dream for the last couple of days and I’ve been loving and enjoying every second of it. I arrived two days ago and although it was such a long trip; 15+ hours of traveling, a layover in Montreal and a missed flight, it was all worth it. We settled into the adorable Thoumieux Hotel, which is only a few mins away from the Eiffel Tower, and were greeted by the lovely Morgane from Sézane. Our room was the cutest, most charming room ever filled with clashing prints on the wall, curtains, carpet.

Morgane was very sweet to welcome us with a cool vintage luggage filled with goodies (see below) which would be helpful during my stay in Paris- like the mini polaroid camera and scrapbook to document my trip in. After a quick rest, we got ready and headed to have lunch then walked to the Eiffel Tower to see the view from the top! Being as it was my first time in Paris, I was completely thrilled to 1) be in Paris and 2) visit the Eiffel Tower. It was magical. Only real word to describe how I felt, really.

After a couple of hours taking photos of the Eiffel Tower and being up at the top, we walked to a cute little street to get some ice-cream to wrap up our first day! We ended the night having an amazing French dinner!

Always dreamt of visiting Paris and my dream is finally came true! It’s beautiful and beyond. Excited to share my diary of Paris with you as well as my time spent with Morgane and the shoot we are having! Enjoy.. Au Revoir!

Also, wanted to share a super cool feature that I’m very honored to be a part of. Refinery29 named me a rising star for their 30 Under 30 feature from L.A. Pretty flattered and so humbled to have been chosen for this list. I would love it if you check out the feature here.

Thank you Caroline, Piera, Sarah, Gabriela, Clark and R29 for the feature!

    Hi ! So you stay in Paris for a few days!! How long are you gonna stay? I am just back from a 3 week beach vacation, away from my computer and cell phone! when I arrived in Paris today , I thought I was going to faint because of the heat, 34 degrees in the late afternoon, hope you do not suffer from the canicule and you enjoy your visit:-). Is there a way to meet you at some point with other fans ??:-) I’d love to.
    I guess you have a busy agenda but it would be so cool to see you :-)..

    Musee d’Orsay This is an outstanding art museum. Not to be hurried through but so much to see there can be sensory overload. We thought we were done until we reached the top floor where the private collections were and wished we had started there first.
