Arriving in Paris


Last summer me & one of my oldest friends, Lucy, planned our first holiday together. We jumped on a plane & headed to beautiful Paris for the weekend. I booked my first ever AirBnB & fell in love with the city. I was fortunate enough to visit Paris as a kid, my parents took me to Disney & the Eiffel Tower but when I went last summer I had a whole new appreciation for the city. It was so nice to wander the streets & stop off at little bistro's & café's to sample the aperitifs & the Croque Monsieur, visit the Louvre & be really *cultural* & grown up. Well it started off like that & then I ended up persuading Lucy it was a GREAT idea to visit Disney. Because it was, naturally.

 I left these photos so late as I just haven't had the time to sort them out but as I have a 4000 word assignment due soon for uni, I really have to procrastinate so I thought this was a good start. I decided to upload my photos in stages so these are just some of the sightings around Paris. It's a long post but I hope you enjoy!





I loved our little flat which was situated near Belleville, Buttes Chaumont & it was perfect for us. Vintage trinkets from the local flea market adorn the walls & floor & the owner was a fashion student so her room was covered in needles & fabric. In all honesty She could have been more polite as she simply opened the door, showed us the living room, gave us the door codes & the key then left with a sigh, but I've used AirBnB a few times now & I've met worse aha..


I needed a Paris selfie...























When we found Pont Des Arts I couldn't resist buying a lock for Mathieu & I. I put it next to the one that lucy treated me to so when Mathieu & I go back we can add another (I know, I'm too cute).









My next photos are of Pere Lachaise! Has anyone been before? I think it was my favourite! 

Love Nicole x
