A Weekend In Paris

After an amazing weekend in Paris, filled with macarons and magical culture, I didn't want to come home!

After going on my first flight in ten years, I was so ready to soak up the Parisian culture I had researched months beforehand. 

Pinterest is the place to be if you want to create your holiday itinerary and I had gone a little pin-crazy in the run-up to Paris. I was worried I would set myself up for disappointment after all of the beautiful pictures I pinned.

Paris was everything I imagined and more; The scenery on every corner will take your breath away. We arrived Friday afternoon and made our way to the Eiffel tower, which is huge in person! We went all the way up to the summit, and the view was something you'd see in the movies. The gorgeous weather added to the experience!

We also managed to cram in a visit to The Louvre the same evening; I was super excited to see the famous Mona Lisa in person finally...

Much to my disappointment, it was super small. I admired the painting opposite more, what an exquisite, colourful and grand piece of art!

On route to our hotel (lots of walking), we came across Lovelock bridge, an unexpected bonus to add to our tourist experience.

Thinking things couldn't get any greater, we arrived at the hotel and found this gorgeous view!

On Saturday, we shopped along the Champs Elysees, spending far too many euros in Chanel and Sephora, oops! (Haul coming soon)

Surprisingly, I didn't eat much! Most likely because our time was spent in awe sightseeing. But I made sure to try a French croissant and a macaron or two from the famous Laduree. My macaron virginity was incredibly grateful.

From Friday to Monday we managed to fit in almost all of Paris' most beautiful landmarks. Climbing three hundred steps up the Arc De Triomphe, the view was unsurprisingly stunning.

You'd think the walking would drive us mad, (our thighs were on fire) but we still decided to make the long journey to Notre Dame.

Once again, there were no regrets. Never have I seen a place so beautiful. A place so genuinely moving and enticing, it gives you goosebumps.

My two closest friends and I were lucky enough to spend a weekend in the most beautiful city in the world. I had a fabulous time, and I would recommend a weekend in Paris to anyone.
