Oh, Paris!- Day 3

paristrip00

Day 3 in Paris was probably one of my favorite days. We got started a little later because we slept in a bit; being jet lagged is the worst feeling! We met up with our fam Betty + Mathieu for lunch at Colette- a go-to destination in Paris for tourists, locals and fashion enthusiasts; a definitely must see store… We had a long lunch while chatting about everything and anything then headed upstairs to check out the store full of cool tees, gadgets, books, knick-knacks, sunglasses, wallets, and ready-to-wear clothing.

We hung out for a couple hours and before we knew it, it was 6pm already- a bit bummed we woke up late this day as I wanted to take full advantage of my “free day” and do a bit more sight seeing and shopping for my loved ones. We quickly got ready to head to the Palace of Versailles before sunset…. I know, I couldn’t believe I was going to visit the palace!

It was such a dream to walk up to the Palace and prance around such a historical landmark. It was the most beautiful scene I’ve witnessed; it felt magical, inspiring and charming.

Definitely one of the best memories I have to cherish! Below are some photos of what we documented for day 3, enjoy!paristrip9 paristrip2 paristrip8 paristrip4 paristrip5 paristrip3paristrip10 paristrip14 paristrip22 paristrip21paristrip19 paristrip25 paristrip20 paristrip28 paristrip15 paristrip16 paristrip24 paristrip11 paristrip18 paristrip1 paristrip26 paristrip

Oh, Paris!- Day 2.

day2-23

Day 2 in Paris was just as perfect as Day 1! I mean, it really just kept getting better! We had a full day packed with activities with the Sézane team!

We started off with a light breakfast across the street from the hotel and waited to get picked up by a taxi at 11 am. We then headed to Sézane’s studio to take a look at the new fall collection, and play dress up! Seriously, I wanted every single piece- the coats were to die for! Wishing fall came quicker now. After hanging out and falling in love with every piece in her studio as well as her studio as a whole, we walked to the nearest farmer’s market to snap photos and to get inspired. We walked for a couple of hours just exploring the city and it’s beautiful streets, we would randomly pop in and out of stores we thought were cool. We were finally making our way in to the Centre Georges Pompidou museum to have lunch on the roof top of Le Georges restaurant. We were greeted and surprised by my close friends Betty and Mathieu- it was the loveliest surprise!

The Sezane team left us to enjoy lunch as they headed back to the office to work. We caught up for hours enjoying a yummy lunch, drinks and dessert overlooking the whole city (photo above). Soon after, we got ready to check out some cool stores and meet up with some other friends for drinks. It was truly an amazing 2nd day with incredible friends!

Later in the evening, we headed back to the hotel, rested, changed and headed to dinner with Morgane, Coco and Thomas (Sézane team!). My scrumptious meal was accompanied by the best ice cream in town from Berthillon- and that it was! We caught a boat ride that took us through Ile Saint Louis to wrap up our amazing day; it was magical.

Take a glimpse of what we captured of Day 2 in Paree!

Oh, Paris!

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!
